Review: Always by Kindle Alexander

It seems like ages that I´ve been reading this outstanding book for the first time. It´s been at a time where I still needed a dictionary to read a book in its original language and never dreamed of that there would be a day where none where needed, let alone write reviews in something other than my native language German. A few weeks ago I´d been gifted with a signed copy of Kindle Alexander´s “Always”, from two wonderful men where I have the honor to call my friends. 

The book started out for Kane in a nightmare, a very present nightmare that nobody should have to endure, ever. Getting as fast as he can to a hospital room, where the love of his life, Avery had been settled in after collapsing in his office and waiting now for surgery. The very little time they had, before Avery got into surgery, had been heart breaking and took its toll not only on Kane. With Kane torturing himself with what he could have done better to avoid the scenario right in front of his eyes, his daughter tries to distract him by telling her yet again how the epic love story of her dads began. 

Avery Adams, the grandson of one of Americas most beloved Presidents and on his best way for the job himself had a reservation at La Bella Luna, the upper class Italian restaurant which was booked out for month in advance. Seeing and bee seen, the name of the game. Kane Dalton, proud owner of said restaurant had been more then excited to have such a high profile guest in his restaurant that night. If you ever believed in love on first sight, this is the book for you! Even though their first encounter had been a disaster for Kane, you can be sure an Avery Adams always gets what he wants and he wants Kane, come hell or high water.

For Kane life never had been easy, abandoned by his family a long time ago and just being asked to send money for of his mother’s funeral, but not being allowed to attend the event in person, his heart is heavy. As if that alone wouldn’t be enough, his longtime boyfriend of 4 years just dropped him. With his religious believes and rules he sure didn’t make it easy for himself, let alone for a loving relationship. Last but not least the debacle with the high profile guest on table 34, Avery Adams. Things generally happened in sets of three, so he should be done, right. Good thing he always could count on his staff, which had been more like family than employees to him. Not to forget Paulie, the man that was like a father to him and always had his back.

From their first Kiss on they’ve been inseparable and with both men out and proud, Avery forwent his political career to be with the man he loved more as anything in this world. A year after Avery’s proposal their dream come true and they got married. With every Chapter we got more insight over the deep love these two wonderful men shared in their 40 years together. It’s been a joy to read about their first experience when deciding on having kids, even though it wasn’t easy on Kane when he got jumped by Avery about it in the beginning. On his 50th birthday Avery got his second chance to run for the senate again, which turns life as they have known upside down. There had been so many ups and downs in the following years, but their love to each other and their kids never had been faltering. Being vice president takes its toll on Avery and ignoring his physician appointment ain´t his smartest move.

The last part of the book had me in tears for hours. I knew exactly what Kane had been going thru and my heart broke just a bit more. The very end gave me hope, hope that there will be a time in a better world where we´ll meet our soulmates, our loved ones again. 

Thank you to the amazing writing duo that is Kindle Alexander for this, like I already said, outstanding book about eternal love. Thank you for giving me hopes in times when I needed it the most. Thank you to Kris and his husband Stephen, not only for this amazing gift, but also for being the wonderful, supportive, caring friends that you are. Thank you for always being there and looking out for me! Thank you to my husband, the love of my life, my soulmate, my best friend, for putting up with me for over 21 years and for the amazing time we´ve been fortunate to share in all those years. Rest in peace my Love, until one day we meet again.
I love you, always,
Petra Andrea

Born to a prestigious political family, Avery Adams plays as hard as he works. The gorgeous, charismatic attorney is used to getting what he wants, even the frequent one-night stands that earn him his well-deserved playboy reputation. When some of the most prominent men in politics suggest he run for senate, Avery decides the time has come to follow in his grandfather's footsteps. With a strategy in place and the campaign wheels rolling, Avery is ready to jump on the legislative fast track, full steam ahead. But no amount of planning prepares him for the handsome, uptight restaurateur who might derail his political future.

Easy isn't even in the top thousand words to describe Kane Dalton's life after his father, a devout Southern Baptist minister, kicks him out of the family home for questioning his sexual orientation. Despite all the rotten tomatoes life throws his way, Kane makes something of himself. Between owning a thriving upscale Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Minneapolis and managing his long-term boyfriend, his plate is full. He struggles to get past the teachings of his childhood to fully accept his sexuality and rid himself of the doubts brought on by his religious upbringing. The last thing he needs is the yummy, sophisticated, blond-haired distraction sitting at table thirty-four.

Review: The Mistake by Kris Cook


It had been a pleasure to read some bonus material from our very first Mockingbird Place couple Oliver & Adam.  I really badly was in need of a Mockingbird Place fix; even it was just a short one!

Oliver is devastated; while everybody from Mockingbird Place had been busy with the yard sale going on, one of his most precious things had gone missing. Something Malcom, the man who had been like a father for Oliver had left him as he passed away and which had been stuffed with so many wonderful memories. What started as a fun day for everybody involved ended for Adam as a race. Well, who wouldn´t do anything to make the love of his life happy again, right, and as a former Marine Adam sure has his ways to find out where the lost box ended up.  What better way to treat your hero with a round of hot, sweaty sex and Oliver sure knows what his man likes….

Thank you Kris Cook, for this amazing little gem while waiting for the Cop In Unit F, which will be coming up next in this most wonderful series!

How I love to be one of Kris Cook´s VIP Readers!

Review: Injustice: Episode Four by Nicholas Bella (Cobra: The Gay Vigilante Series Book 4)

The fourth book of the series for once is a bit different then the last three because Richard Tate sure is anything as the easy target Eric aka Cobra could wish for. It would be so much easier to rob Fort Knox then getting anywhere close to Richard Tate. Thank god for his ability to transform into anybody that could get him more information and one step closer to his aim. For Eric that means to step up his game and trying more than ever to make no mistakes. His new addiction, the Sexy Silver Fox Alexi Taylor sure know how to distract a man on a mission, if he just wouldn´t be the enemy everything could be so much easier. Jordan sure isn´t happy about the new man in Eric´s life and jealousy rears his ugly head. Good thing that it doesn´t take long and Eric´s seemingly lost appetite for Jordan is back soon in full force.

Even though this book had been a bit different it´s been nonetheless an amazing read in usual Nicholas Bella manner with lots of action and breathtaking sex scenes. Like in the prior books I really appreciated that there had been no cliffhangers at the end, just a very pleasurable sex scene. Well sure, the story will be continued with the same target, but nothing that would give me sleepless nights because I´d be giddy to find out what happens next…

Thank you to Nicholas Bella for another amazing read, where I wasn´t able to put it down until the very last page.

Injustice: Episode Four by Nicholas Bella

(Cobra: The Gay Vigilante Series Book 4)

"Why can't I get this sexy silver fox out of my system?"

I'm preparing for one hell of a mission in taking our Richard Tate. This guy has been the big fish I've want to catch that may lead me to ever bigger fish.  Problem is he's extremely protected and I need to figure out how to get close to Mr. Tate so that I can torture the hell out of him, preferably to death. Of course, not before I get some answers. Taking down the Killing Game isn't my only issue, though. There's this sexy as sin silver fox that I've recently met that still has my body tingling in all the right places. Too bad he's a cop and assigned to a murder that I committed. Needless to say, things are about to get complicated.

Warning: This is a novella serial series that will be coming at you fully loaded with hot, gay sex. Yes, there will be all kinds of bodily fluids splashing and squirting in all directions with each episode. Expect body parts to be sliced, diced, gouged, and even ripped apart because I don't half step. This is a series intended for adults only, who want a superhero that loves to play dirty... and by dirty, I mean grimy as hell.

Review: Unlawful: Episode Three (Cobra: The Gay Vigilante Series Book 3) by Nicholas Bella

Here we go again, because right at the beginning of book three  Eric has to do what he hates most; transforming into a female body to get more information about his next target, a member of the oh so cruel and disgusting hunting game. Eric, aka Cobra, doesn’t care if it’s a woman he has to eliminate, an eye for an eye is the name of the game and no plea for mercy will be heard if the bitch is guilty.

Once more I’ve been intrigued with Nicholas Bella’s writing skills. Like no other he understands to keep the readers on its toes, whereas yet again the bantering between our main characters had been very entertaining at times.  Seeing as there not only had been two targets in this book which, without question, got their well-deserved punishment , but also his very first target Mr. Jingles had been found, there truly had been some action in this part of the series. I’ve been highly delighted that I didn’t have to wait for Mr. Sexy Silver Fox until book 4 and let me tell you, I’m still swooning about their first encounter or should I say about the phenomenal sex these two hot studs shared. My skin is still tingling just thinking about it. If there just wouldn’t be that tiny problem that Eric’s new addiction seems to be the leading detective on the scene of his first target, what a mess. To be continued…

There’s nothing more left to say other than that I can’t wait to dig into the next book of the series! Like the last two books I wasn’t able to put this fantastic read down until the very end and I’m thanking the book goods, or therefore Nicholas Bella for this short, but high quality reading experience!

Review: Unlawful: by Nicholas Bella

Episode Three (Cobra: The Gay Vigilante Series Book 3) 

"I'm an equal opportunity avenger, baby"

I'm playing things smarter now, not making the same mistakes as the last time. If we want to take down this murder syndicate--because that's what I'm calling them--then Jordan and I have to be more cunning than they are. Right now, my new target is Mayor Cecily Danvers. Who would have thought a woman, with such a bright, warm smile, who often talked about bettering our city, would be into watching people be tortured to death? The woman spent time with inner city youths for God's sake, helping to build community centers in order to keep them off the streets. Goes to show you people aren't always what they seem. The bad news is, she's highly protected, so getting to her is going to be tricky... but not impossible. The good new is, I love a challenge. 

Warning: This is a novella serial series that will be coming at you fully loaded with hot, gay sex. Yes, there will be all kinds of bodily fluids splashing and squirting in all directions with each episode. Expect body parts to be sliced, diced, gouged, and even ripped apart because I don't half step.
