A full length novel

Tristan Wilder, self-made millionaire and devastatingly handsome CEO of Wilder-Nation is on the verge of a very lucrative buyout. With tough negotiations ahead, he's armed with his acquisition pitch, ready to launch the deal of a lifetime. There’s just one glitch. The last thing he expects is to fall for the hot business owner he's trying to sway.

Dylan Reeves, computer science engineer and founder of the very successful social media site, Secret, is faced with a life-altering decision. A devoted family man with three kids and a wife, Dylan has been living a secret for years. Fiercely loyal to his convictions, his boundaries blur after meeting the striking owner of the corporation interested in acquiring his company. For the first time in his life, reckless desire consumes him when the gorgeous computer mogul makes an offer he can't refuse.

Ms. Alexander has masterfully crafted a story about adults; adults who are honest with each other, adults who are honest while pursuing something unconventional.

Secret tells the story of Tristan Wilder, self-made millionaire, a tech genius who owns Wilder-Nation and Dylan Reeves, computer science engineer and founder of the very successful social media site, Secret (oh just wait! the book name means so much more than just that.)

The opening of this book may have you unsure of where it is going, but trust me – push forward because it soon appears that life is often more than meets the eye; and the “perfect” family presented to the outside world might not be what lives behind the bedroom door.

The moment Tristan and Dylan meet, you can feel the connection and the pull. The how Tristan approaches Dylan is adorable. I fell hard for Tristan as he works to help Dylan feel comfortable in his own skin.

And I adored Tristan desires to go after what he wanted:

“You look nice today,” Tristan said quietly, smiling as Dylan’s cheeks grew red.

“Is that why you made everyone leave?”

“No, of course not. I could have just told you later, but that whole look’s perfect on you. The hair’s hot. Pinstripes fit your frame remarkably well. You look taller, more intimidating. Great look for negotiations or the cover of GQ. You could do both.” Tristan scooted closer. “Did you get my flowers?” he asked even quieter.

“I did. Thank you, but that was a risky move,” Dylan said, clearly ignoring the compliment.

It is likely important to mention that Dylan is a married man with three children, a man truly devoted to his family. There is no betrayal in this book… let me repeat… Ms. Alexander pulls this story off, gets the reader to want Dylan and Tristan together without any characters betraying each other. As I said when I opened my review, this book is about adults being honest with each other.

I know this line is going to sound odd to say about a male romance, especially one with a married man, but I loved the use of Teri, Dylan’s wife.  Teri was so important to the story line and the relationship she forges with Tristan was wonderful, no this is not a menage. Trust me…read the book!

The how the “secret” of this story unravels will have you gripping your kindle as the lies start to unravel but that will soon be replaced with a smile from ear to ear.

The happy Dlyan and Tristan find is compounded by children who love their parents as people and truly want them happy and loved.

Ms. Alexander takes the reader on journey to happy that captured my heart.

This book releases on June 9th – make sure to pre-order! You will love it as much as I did!

About Kindle Alexander

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.

    I’m a huge Kindle Alexander fan. Thanks for the clarification regarding whether Dylan betrays his wife. People on Goodreads are expressing concern, so your clarification helps. I’d hate to have people not read this because the book blurb gives the impression one of the MCs betrays his spouse. Looking forward to reading this.

  2. Kindle

    That’s a great review! THANK YOU so much Denise! Big hugs! Pam is so right. I was very surprised about the cheating assumption – so didnt see that coming. It’s also funny how different men and women feel about that possibility. Its been incredibly eye opening. Denise you did awesome explaining around that. Thank you for taking your time to read this story. Big hugs!!! And YAY!!!
