Sam reviews ‘Secret’ by Kindle Alexander. Self-Published on June 9th, 2015 and is 320 pages long.
Why I read this book: Kindle Alexander is one of my favorite MM authors and when a new book was released I knew I had to read it.
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.
Dylan is a business engineer and owner of the social media site, Secret. Secret is like no other social media site out there and Dylan has made it a huge success. Knowing that he has taken Secret to the highest level he can financially, Dylan decides that he will sell the company if all the important terms are met. Dylan is extremely handsome. He is married and the father of 3 amazing children. He has a great life but is missing a big part of himself that he can only hope to get a piece of once all his children are grown and off to college.
Tristan is the gorgeous owner of the Wilder-Nation. He has built it from the very bottom and is now a multi millionaire. The only thing he hasn’t succeeded in is the social media aspect of his business. When the chance to buy the most up and coming successful social media site out there Tristan jumps at the opportunity. He plans to bring his best to the table and not take no for an answer.
All those plans go astray when Dylan the owner of Secret walks into his company. The attraction he has towards the owner has thrown him for a loop. Knowing Dylan is married with kids, Tristan is well aware that he is unobtainable and will have to control his desires.
Everything changes when Tristan figures out that Dylan is really a gay man so hidden in the closet he can’t see the light. When Dylan finally confesses his deepest secret and admits he is attracted to Tristan it heats up fast. Dylan can no longer resist what he has always wanted but never tempted to try.
What will happen when the time comes for Dylan to return home? Will he go back deep in the closet or will he finally be true to himself once and for all?
Knowing ahead of time that Dylan is married and that the subject of adultery would arise I was a bit nervous how it would be handled. But the way the author writes Dylan’s wife Teri was a joy to read. You don’t feel the betrayal that many stories bring instead the author has you pulling for Dylan and Tristan to make it.
Kindle Alexander’s ability to write is off the charts. For me, the reader, the ability to connect with each and every character and to feel part of the story is one of the greatest aspects of reading. Kindle Alexander has achieved this repeatedly with her books and once again with Secret. The journey that we see Tristan and Dylan go on is beautiful. I can’t wait to see what Kindle Alexander brings next, as each book seems to get better and better.

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.
