Sam reviews Young at Heart by Kay Ellis. Published March 6th 2015 by Wayward Ink Publishing, 129 pages.
Why I read this book: It was recommended by a friend and the storyline sounded like it was something I would enjoy reading.
Devon Alexander is a wealthy successful businessman. The world is his oyster. In his work life he is decisive and in control.
His private life is another matter.
There, he doesn’t know if he’s coming or going in his on-off relationship with Jesse Young, an unemployed aspiring model half his age.
Can Devon and Jesse overcome the obstacles and outside influences standing in their way? Can they leave behind their own fear and mistrust? Or will they be their own worst enemies?
This is such an amazing book. It is about two people who are in love with each other but are very insecure within their relationship. Dev’s biggest issue is that Jesse is 11 years younger than himself and worries that one day Jesse will want to be with someone his own age. Jesse has had a horrific past and has a hard time believing someone truly wants to be with him.
Unfortunately there are people who are in Dev’s life that don’t want them to be together and will do whatever they can to interfere. Several of the incidents that occur are not what they seem sadly Dev doesn’t realize it and it makes him question his relationship with Jesse more than once, therefore turning it into a cycle of breaking up and getting back together. As you read this book you can only hope that they can overcome all the obstacles that are up against them and find a way to finally stay together.
This story is beautifully written and at many times it brought me to tears. I look forward reading more from this author. I would definitely recommend reading this book

In 2013, someone suggested Kay enter a competition on national television to find a new ‘racey reads’ author. Much to Kay’s surprise, she made it to the final three, and although she didn’t win, the high praise received for her work gave her the confidence to start submitting to publishers.
