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.

In his late 30s Dylan is firmly in the closet. Married with 3 great teenage kids, a successful company and only one other person knows his secret. Tristan, equally successful, is openly gay. It doesn't take him long to figure out Dylan's secret and a difficult and complicated relationship ensues.

Secret offers us a lovely romance, great steamy scenes and shows us that happily ever after isn't just for those in their 20s. So many romance books show us an epilogue with marriage and children as a happily ever after and I loved that this story takes us to the point at a later stage in their lives.

Kindle Alexander has provided another excellent M/M romance. Her books are a must read for M/M fans.

I am pretty sure I have said it before but Kindle Alexander could write a grocery list and I would love to read it. I haven't found a KA book yet that I don't love. Secret is no different. I fell in love with this story.

Dylan puts his family first, above everything else in his life. He is selling his social media app, Secret. Tristan's company WilderNation is after Secret. Tristan knows it will improve his standing in the social media world. Obtaining Secret would make WilderNation millions. The weekend when the two companies meet to iron out the deal changes everything. One is a player looking for his next hookup, the other is living deep in the closet. Can one weekend together change everything? Will they let it play out like it’s destined to?

Like I said this is a great story. The emotion that is felt is heart wrenching. The sit down towards the end of the book had me in tears. So well written. I always look forward to the new Kindle Alexander title coming out, always a fantastic read!

I was so excited to read this book, I love every book by Kindle, I was shocked when I started reading it that I was a little bored at first, I had to actually put it down and start another book and come back to this one. After several chapters the book finally started to pick up and turn into the book that I have come to expect from Kindle. At times I wanted to reach through my e-reader and smack Dylan; I loved him but wanted to smack him. I understand having your priorities and not wanting to drift from those, but at some point in life you have to live for you and no one else. I didn’t fall in love with Tristan instantly; he had to grow on me. While I love the story and how everything unfolded, I think it could have been faster paced in the beginning and then in the end when things finally came out and got really good, BAM it was over. Yeah we got an epilogue but I wanted a little more.

This was my first Kindle Alexander book. I'd heard so many things about this author that I was super excited to get started on it.

However, for me the first two chapters were quite.... boring. Once the two men meet, things get interesting and I couldn't wait to see how things would unfold.

The story itself was pretty good, it was a bit predictable at times and surprising at others. I felt like it dragged on and on at some points though. While the secondary characters were well woven into the story, I felt like they really distracted from the main parts of the story.

I have to say that I didn't really find the naughty scenes all that naughty either, which surprised me with how many people say they are so hot, so maybe it is because I read so much erotic romance.

The second this hit my Kindle I stopped everything I was doing and read. And what an excellent decision that was. As always Ms. Alexander brings a fabulous story to us fortunate readers. And what I really enjoyed was that again, she has not shied away from difficult or controversial issues, and paints them in a totally different light – which I admire and appreciate. People are all too happy to judge others, when they know nothing of the circumstances. It is a wonderful combination of hot and steamy, and deep and meaningful. I thought all the characters were beautifully portrayed, and would happily be friends with them – which is usually how I determine just how much I enjoy a book!

I have just reread Secret before reviewing it, (to indulge myself really) and if anything I enjoyed it even more. It is a really good story and I recommend it to you.

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.
