Always by Kindle Alexander

What a great love story. From when they first meet in the early 70’s to present time. The connection was Always there. Avery and Kane are just so great together. The right fit at the right time. The reader follows these two through the years, watching and waiting as the world around them changes, accepts, advances and evolves with these two. Kane learns to accept who he is, a hard thing to do when your heavily religious, southern family has disowned him. His struggle for self acceptance takes years but with the love and support of his friends and lover Avery, he does just that. Overcomes.The cover write up really is just a prelude to the book itself. What Always is, is so much more.

I was left with tears and a smile. What a great way to meet an author for the first time

Born to a prestigious political family, Avery Adams plays as hard as he works. The gorgeous, charismatic attorney is used to getting what he wants, even the frequent one-night stands that earn him his well-deserved playboy reputation. When some of the most prominent men in politics suggest he run for senate, Avery decides the time has come to follow in his grandfather's footsteps. With a strategy in place and the campaign wheels rolling, Avery is ready to jump on the legislative fast track, full steam ahead. But no amount of planning prepares him for the handsome, uptight restaurateur who might derail his political future.

Easy isn't even in the top thousand words to describe Kane Dalton's life after his father, a devout southern Baptist minister, kicks him out of the family home for questioning his sexual orientation. Despite all the rotten tomatoes life throws his way, Kane makes something of himself. Between owning a thriving upscale Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Minneapolis and managing his long-term boyfriend, his plate is full. He struggles to get past the teachings of his childhood to fully accept his sexuality and rid himself of the doubts brought on by his religious upbringing. The last thing he needs is the yummy, sophisticated, blond-haired distraction sitting at table thirty-four.
