Tristan Wilder, self-made millionaire and devastatingly handsome CEO of Wilder-Nation is on the verge of a very lucrative buyout. With tough negotiations ahead, he's armed with his acquisition pitch, ready to launch the deal of a lifetime. There’s just one glitch. The last thing he expects is to fall for the hot business owner he's trying to sway.
Dylan Reeves, computer science engineer and founder of the very successful social media site, Secret, is faced with a life-altering decision. A devoted family man with three kids and a wife, Dylan has been living a secret for years. Fiercely loyal to his convictions, his boundaries blur after meeting the striking owner of the corporation interested in acquiring his company. For the first time in his life, reckless desire consumes him when the gorgeous computer mogul makes an offer he can't refuse.
A successful computer science engineer and creator of a groundbreaking social media site, Dylan has a family he loves with all his being, who he's been protecting at all costs for years. It is because of the love he has for them that he has denied himself to be who he really is, to accept who he was meant to be. But in just a moment, the walls Dylan so carefully built start crumbling down, and the secret he has kept buried in his heart for years comes to light when he meets Tristan, an entrepreneur who's interest lays in more that the social site that Dylan created and is trying to sell.
The thing I like the most about Mrs. Alexander is that she goes beyond the M/M genre and gives us a story that any of us can relate to. The heart and soul of her books are the complex and beautiful characters she carefully develops, and who takes us on a journeys, in this case of sacrifice, self discovery, and acceptance, that will be hard to forget.
I adored this book, but shamefully I have to admit that I didn't particularly like Dylan at the beginning. As the story unraveled, and understanding started to settled in, my heart went out to him, and I became his number one cheerleader.
This is a book that needs to be slowly savored, a book full of hope. Five well deserved stars.
Side Note: Never forget to give a little more credit to the people around you, sometimes they will pleasantly surprise you.
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.
