Gage Synclair, international, hard-hitting investigative photojournalist, is preparing for the final special report of his career…a story of deception and murder six long years in the making. And after ten years in some of the worst parts of the world, he’s ready to settle life down and open an art gallery in his hometown of Chicago. The only thing getting in his way, he needs to find a competent electrician to finish the job before his grand opening.
Trent Cooper, electrical contractor, is surprised by the last minute request for a fast-paced electrical remodel, wanting nothing more than to get his foot in the door with Layne Construction. Being gay in the construction industry isn’t easy, nor is being father to his two young adopted children. Trent keeps his life in separate zones to avoid a short circuit. But when the gallery owner propositions him on the first day, Trent can’t help but think his worlds are a little too close for comfort.
Will their high-voltage passion spark everlasting love or will their lives break the circuit between them forever?

This is my very first book from Kindle Alexander. Can I say ... WOW? Kindle ... you are one amazing writer. The way that you describe your characters made me feel as if I knew each and every one of them.

I immediately fell in love with Trent. Ugh .. who wouldn't? A man who takes in his niece and nephew after their parents died; especially when Emalynn was a newborn. Amazingly wonderful man. I am pretty sure my ovaries exploded when he tucked them into his bed during a thunder storm.

Trent is a contractor who works hard to give the kids everything they can ask for. He left for work one morning to check out his new job. While he was walking the floor, measuring and taking note of what needed to be done, he meets Gage. Gage is the owner of the studio that Trent is the contractor of. He is a man's man ... he takes em' how he can get em'! You might say a player. :)

Trent was immediately mesmerized by Gage. Not only had he followed his work for years, but he is gorgeous. Ruggedly handsome with sandy blond hair, he was always told that he would be better in front of  the camera, than behind it. Nothing is going to hold him back, which I feel is why he is so confident in the bedroom. It's as if he has something to prove. Trent on the other hand has gone through so much pain and devastation, that you can't help but cry for him. Raw emotions is what this book brings out of you.

Gage wants Trent and Trent wants Gage. Is their chemistry just lust, or could there be more? Is Trent open to love with everything going on in his life? It does after all, appear that they are both after the same thing ... unity, family and love.

Get ready for an amazing tale of suspense and love. I've been told before that I will fall in love with Kindle once I read just one book. Well .. it happened!!


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.
