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.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This story is so sweet. All the main players are really deep down good people. There are some extremely hot sex scenes, but the point of everything isn't getting to those. It's about doing the right thing. Like seriously, I want to be these people when I grow up.
Dylan and his wife have not been anything except best friends for years. She knows he's gay. He knows she has a long time boyfriend. They made an agreement to stay together until their kids are off to college, to put the kids first. They are amazing parents and friends, seriously driven people. They had kids very young, managed to still reach mega careers and raise above average kids. Just imagining all the sacrificing to get to that point makes me tired. In our current impulse society, the age of instant gratification, this wows me.
Tristan is a tremendously rich business owner. He's also a gay playboy of sorts. While trying to buyout Dylan's social media site, Tristan figures something out about Dylan that no one except his wife knows, and he immediately sets to breaking down Dylan's walls.
I enjoyed the low dramatics and high maturity in this book. If you are looking for a M/M read that is hugely romantic and filled with honorable characters, you should definitely check out this story.
