Kindle Alexander is quickly becoming a ‘must read’ author for me. Her book, Always, had me using tissues so much my trashcan was soon filled to the rim with them. When I saw her new release, Secret I immediately knew I had to read it. Boy, was I not disappointed. I absolutely loved this book and adored the story they had to tell.
It is very clear that Ms. Alexander loves her characters. They are very well-written and realistically portrayed. These men are people you would easily call a friend and hang out with. The great thing about her heroes is they truly live and breathe off of the written page. When I began the book, I was quickly enthralled in Tristan and Dylan’s lives and gripped into their story so much that I ended up reading the entire book without stopping.
Yes, it is that good.
Tristan and Dylan were truly meant to be together but they have many obstacles to overcome and are faced with hard decisions to make if they are to achieve happiness together. I loved that Tristan himself, is actually a very patient and loving man. It was easy to see why Dylan fell so hard and so quick for him. I liked how they really strove to look out for each other, even when Dylan was conflicted as to when he should come out and was worried about how his children would take it. I loved the strong family unit Dylan had with his wife and kids. Now, having said this…PLEASE do NOT think Dylan is a cheater because he’s really not. He and his wife know about his sexuality and although they forge a united front, they also have separate lives that both are very aware of. The great thing about this was the support and encouragement Dylan and his wife gave to each other. I couldn’t help but really like her and I know you will too. They are best friends and it clearly showed how much they truly care about each other.
The emotional connection between Tristan and Dylan is a strong one but they also have a physical chemistry together that is off the charts HOT! You will love how these two men love each other…I know I did!
Secret is a very easy book to recommend. If you love well-written, thought provoking stories with very sexy heroes that truly like, love and respect each other then Secret is a book that must not be missed. It’s a perfect read for that lazy afternoon you are craving a hot and sexy romance. I loved this book and can’t wait to see what Ms. Alexander has in store for us next!
