Check out my review of m/m romance Double Full by Kindle Alexander, and check back later for my review of second book, Full Disclosure.
Up and coming football hero, Colton Michaels, makes a Hail Mary pass one night in the college locker room that results in the hottest, sexiest five days of his young life. However, interference after the play has him hiding his past and burying his future in the bottom of a bottle. While Colt seems to have it all, looks can be deceiving, especially when you’re trapped so far in a closet that you can’t see your way out. When ten years of living his expected fast-lane lifestyle lands him engaged to his manipulative Russian supermodel girlfriend, he decides it’s time to call a new play.
Jace Montgomery single-handily built the largest all-star cheerleading gym in the world, driven by a need to forget a life-altering encounter with a handsome quarterback a decade ago. His reputation as an excellent coach, hard-nosed business man, and savvy entrepreneur earned him respect in the sometimes catty world of competitive cheerleading. When Jace learns of his ex-lover’s plans to marry, his heart executes a barrel roll and his carefully-placed resolve tumbles down without a mat to absorb the shock. Can his island escape help him to finally let go of the past and move his life forward?
I have had this book on my eReader for so long. I read, devoured, and completely and hopelessly fell in love with the book Always by this author, so when I heard that Kindle Alexander was releasing a second book in this series, I new that it was finally time to get stuck in.
I’m so torn with this book. I love the authors writing. It’s not as strong as it is more recent works (which is a good thing, because that shows growth) but it was still very easy to get into, and though it’s told in third person, I never found myself confused over the characters which unfortunately happens sometimes for me with this writing style.
Jace, I absolutely loved from the very start. There was just something about him. I instantly wanted the very best for him, and felt a sort of protectiveness over him. But I wasn’t 100% sold on Colt. To be more specific, I wasn’t sold on Colt as a college student. He came across as a bit of an obsessive, creepy, stalker kind of guy, and that didn’t do anything for whatsoever. As time went on, and he grew up, it was a lot easier to like him, but to start with…he wasn’t for me.
I loved the storyline, though I feel it could have been made stronger. More emotion added. There was only really one point where my eyes slightly misted, but the rest of the time I just…read. I loved the addition of Mitch. At first I thought it was a completely random add on, but then I got his part to the story…to the series, I truly cannot wait to continue it.
It was pretty much insta-love for me where Mitch was concerned. I love him so much, and I’m stoked that he’s getting his own book, and his story will continue. I can’t wait to see it all unravel in Full Disclosure.
Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about Kindle.
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.
