Official Blurb: Born to a prestigious political family, Avery Adams plays as hard as he works. The gorgeous, charismatic attorney is used to getting what he wants, even the frequent one-night stands that earn him his well-deserved playboy reputation. When some of the most prominent men in politics suggest he run for senate, Avery decides the time has come to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps. With a strategy in place and the campaign wheels rolling, Avery is ready to jump on the legislative fast track, full steam ahead. But no amount of planning prepares him for the handsome, uptight restaurateur who might derail his political future.
Easy isn’t even in the top thousand words to describe Kane Dalton’s life after his father, a devout southern Baptist minister, kicks him out of the family home for questioning his sexual orientation. Despite all the rotten tomatoes life throws his way, Kane makes something of himself. Between owning a thriving upscale Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Minneapolis and managing his long-term boyfriend, his plate is full. He struggles to get past the teachings of his childhood to fully accept his sexuality and rid himself of the doubts brought on by his religious upbringing. The last thing he needs is the yummy, sophisticated, blond-haired distraction sitting at table thirty-four.
My Thoughts: ALWAYS is truly a romantic story that will stand the test of time. There is often a moment in a book where you realize, “Oh, hell, this is going to be a great book”. This happened to me during Chapter 1. That’s right, readers, Chapter 1!
Avery Adams is an attorney destined to be great in the arena of politics. He comes from a line of statesmen and is eager to make his mark. Avery is a confident, arrogant, loyal and passionate man. He fights with everything and will not stop until a wrong has been corrected.
Kane Dalton is a southern gentleman; quiet, strong, resistant, brave and steadfast. Kane is the man stands quiet and assesses the situation, before taking action. He is the owner of the upscale restaurant Bella La Luna. He has a strong foundation in his religion and strongly believes his sexual preference is wrong and struggles with this realization. Yes, my heart is breaking for Kane.
What is absolutely unique about his story is the story starts the couple as young men and finishes at the end of their life. We get to read about their whole life. It was absolutely wonderful.
Avery and Kane together are a powerhouse. They make you want to fall in love and pray on your lucky stars that you have a small fraction of the love they have, because if you’re lucky you’ll be the happiest couple you know. You will see the triumphs and hardships the endure as a couple and in the time period the book is taking place. We feel Kane’s struggle with being homosexual and living the life he does. When things get tough Avery is there to take care of everything. There a lot of firsts in this book with the time period in the United States.
Finally, my view on life has changed by reading this book. My view on love has changed by reading this book. I know the man I married is the best thing to ever happen to me and I need show him like Avery and Kane showed one another in ALWAYS. Thank you Kindle for writing a book that has touched my heart so profoundly.
