Ok, I found, through my searching around, a fairly new author….new at least to me. Her name is Kindle Alexander. (No! Really that is her name!!) I normally don’t do this but her story is touching to me and I want you to get to know her. This is taken right from Kindle’s “About Me” page on her website.
“Best Selling, and newly award winning (whooo hooo!) Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next! Happily married with too many children, and dogs, living in the suburbs of Dallas.
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 e-reader. 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 meet my writing partner. I would have never gotten through those dark days without her unwavering support and guidance. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. For the first time I used the hand offered. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her. It takes a special person to come stand beside someone at a time like that. I will love her forever. I could go on and on about both of them, but I won’t and now you know a little more About Me.”
Ok now go dry your tears so I can tell you about the new book that is being released on October 8, 2013, Double Full. Double Full is the first book in Ms. Alexander’s Nice Guy Series. Here is the blurb for the book.
“Up and coming football hero, Colton Michaels, makes a Hail Mary pass one night in the college locker room that results in the hottest, sexiest five days of his young life. However, interference after the play has him hiding his past and burying his future in the bottom of a bottle. While Colt seems to have it all, looks can be deceiving, especially when you’re trapped so far in a closet that you can’t see your way out. When ten years of living his expected fast-lane lifestyle lands him engaged to his manipulative Russian supermodel girlfriend, he decides it’s time to call a new play. Jace Montgomery single-handily built the largest all-star cheerleading gym in the world, driven by a need to forget a life-altering encounter with a handsome quarterback a decade ago. His reputation as an excellent coach, hard-nosed business man, and savvy entrepreneur earned him respect in the sometimes catty world of competitive cheerleading. When Jace learns of his ex-lover’s plans to marry, his heart executes a barrel roll and his carefully-placed resolve tumbles down without a mat to absorb the shock. Can his island escape help him to finally let go of the past and move his life forward?”
As I was reading at one point I thought wow I don’t want this book to end. I tapped my Kindle to see how long before the book would end. To my pleasant surprise, I was only at 63%. I had almost half the book to still read…..skwwwwweeeeeeeee!!! This book is addicting. I received my copy Wednesday night and I read this entire book yesterday. I just could not put it down. I can so see why Colt fell instantly in love with Jace, because I did too. I awwwwed through this book, how sweet Colt is to Jace. Romantic beyond belief. My heart broke, I cried happy and sad tears. As soon as I finished this book, I e-mailed Kindle and told her how much I really liked this book. (I also made sure that the person whose story I wanted next was in fact next and……it is!!!!! (Doing a happy dance.) I really cannot wait to see the next delight Kindle releases after this. Oh btw….I give the book ❤❤❤❤❤. If you couldn’t guess…..I really liked it!
