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.

Wound Tight (Made in Jersey #4)


by
 

A sexy new M/M romance from New York Times Bestselling author Tessa Bailey

When CEO Renner Bastion walks into a room, everyone keeps their distance. Well, everyone but the sarcastic, tattooed, Boston-bred security guard whose presence has kept Renner in New Jersey longer than intended. As if the unwanted attraction isn’t unsettling enough, Renner finds out his protector isn’t as unavailable as originally thought.

Milo Bautista just came out to his wealthy, ultra-confident boss, a man he secretly respects and admires…in more ways than he’ll admit. Worldly, experienced Renner would never look in his direction, let alone share some of that confidence he wears like a cloak, so Milo has set his sights on someone else to be his first.

Until Renner offers him private lessons in seduction...

My Wound Tight Review . . . 

Tessa Bailey knows how to light up the pages with her very sexy couples but I wasn't sure how she would do with the MM genre and let me tell ya. . .  With her first MM she did a bang up job.  Her steam factor was even higher with the MM factor.

We met Renner in the previous books of the series.  He's the uptight new boss whom has a side that we don't get to see.  We briefly saw a moment of his potential in Worked Up book #3.  Now in Wound Tight we get to see what makes Renner tick.  And we quickly learn that its Milo the self appointed personal security guard of Renner.

"What's wrong?"  Renner raised an eyebrow.  "You think I'm going to act like a teenage girl at a One Direction concert over some nipples?"

Milo Bautista is the Boston transplant to Jersey.  He first comes to Jersey as a favor to Vaughn but he quickly finds a reason to stay. . .  Renner.  However, his feelings for Renner are newish and he's very new to the gay world.  He seeks Renner's help to aid him in wooing his first crush but was it really for that or to win Renner over?

You could easily do this on your own, but apparently you're rubbing off on me because I feel . . ." He shivered.  "Obligated to guide your path.  You've turned me into gay Yoda.  It's not a good look."  Milo's lip twitched.  "Actually, I think it's your best look."

Renner has been burnt in the past so he's lives the push away first so you can't get hurt philosophy but it's starting to cost him Milo.  Now he has face his past fears if he wants any future with Milo.

"I don't know a lot about relationships.  With men or women.  But I know this relationship you and I have . . . it doesn't work if you keep letting me go. . . . "

I really liked Renner and Milo together.  They were a perfect match for each other.  Well once they got over their issues.  Their chemistry was through the roof and their relationship was very heartfelt.  Even though this book is part of a series I don't feel you had to read the series to get more from these characters.  I feel Tessa has written it in a way that anyone could read it as as standalone.  I did however read the series as a whole so it's always great to see past characters.   This series has been hit and bit miss for me but I think that this one has been my favorite so far.

Coming December 26th

AP new - synopsis.jpg

Nina can’t let herself fall in love with the man she’s going to marry. Both of them have experienced the sting and sham of love and have no intentions of falling victim to it twice. Love is expensive—hate is free.

Three years. A million dollars. A solution to both of their problems. They planned it all, from the story of their first meeting to the date of their divorce. Nothing could go wrong.

But what they didn’t consider was chemistry, and Nina and Max have no shortage of it. After too many near-kisses, Nina convinces herself that hating Max is better than loving him, and the more she gets to know this soon-to-be-husband of hers, the more she discovers just how very much she truly, madly, and deeply . . . hates him.

This isn’t a love story. This is the other kind.

Dashing Through the Snow by M. Leighton #releaseday #bookreview #christmasromance




Need some fun to brighten up the holidays?  Need some heat to warm up the cold nights?  Well,this is just the thing.  DASHING THROUGH THE SNOW, a sexy, snowy Christmas story by M. Leighton is LIVE!



A dash of perfect for the holidays!

Dilyn Hart hates Christmas, so when her boss (and ex-boyfriend) hands her an assignment to interview champion snowboarder and gorgeous playboy extraordinaire, Dash Grainger, on Christmas Eve, she takes it. There are several things she doesn’t plan for—a surly driver, a chalet in the middle of nowhere, a freak snowstorm—but the biggest surprise of all is Dash himself.

Dash Grainger lives for the high, and so far in his twenty-six years, he’s never met anyone or anything he loves more. Nothing has ever thrilled him as much as slick snow, cold air, and breakneck speed.

Until he meets Dilyn.

But one perfect night doesn’t mean clear, blue skies the next day. Some storms can’t be weathered.

Christmas might just be one of them.

My Dashing Through the Snow Review . . . 

It has been FOREVER since I read a M. Leighton book and what a shame that has been.  I forgot how much I adore her stories.  In Dashing Through the Snow we have a super short and sweet story about love and second chances with a Christmas theme to get us ready for this holiday season.


Dilyn has her reasons to hate Christmas but when her ex/current boss sends her to interview the risk taking, extreme sport athlete the last thing she was expected was to rekindle her love for Christmas.

Dilyn is adverse to risk takers so the last thing she wants is to interview Dash Grainger.  But a job is a job and it will give her some to think about her ex boyfriend and what they could be in the future.   However, this interview didn't start out on the right track with them being stuck in a middle of a snowstorm and add the fact that Dash Grainger makes the once competent Dilyn Hart tongue tied.

The chemistry was instant but Dilyn has her reasons to keep Dash at bay.  For Dash, he's a love em' and leave em' type of guy, where all the women he's with know the score. But something about Dilyn wakens something up in Dash that makes him question everything.

At first they try to do the right thing but its hard to ignore fireworks.  Once they given in, the sparks come to life causing lust at first sight to morph into a love a first sight type of scenario.  But can a risk avoider and a risk taker make it work?  Not when the ex wants more and miscommunications and assumptions come through in droves.

Now their very quick feelings have to fight for what is right, as soon as they start to communicate instead of assume.   This was a super sexy and sweet holiday read.  However, because it was so short some of the nuances of their relationship were missed for me.  Causing me not to be fully engaged into their story.  And with it been so quick I didn't quite feel the love at first sight, let me give up everything for each other type of love.  But it was still sweet. And I loved the idea of the story.  It also gave me a smile to my face and made my miss M. Leighton that I know, I now have to get back on my Leighton wagon and catch up on the books that I have missed of hers.

3 . 5 Sexy and Sweet thumbs up!
