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.
I was fortunate enough to read this book early on, when only a few people had had the pleasure of reading it, and I knew immediately that it was going to be a hit for Kindle Alexander. This story has all the passion and love of all their previous books, and the commitment to family that has always been a foundation that strengthens their stories.
Tristan and Dylan captured my heart quickly. Dylan, a man married to his best friend, committed to keeping their family in tact, and keeping himself from dating until his children are done with school, finds himself quickly falling in love with Tristan, a single man who he is doing business with.
I love how well adjusted this family is. Although Dylan and his wife agree that they can see each other outside their marriage, they have not told their children. Raising their children has been their first priority, and as you meet the children you find that they have done a spectacular job of that, with three very well adjusted children.
As Tristan and Dylan begin to realize that this can’t be just a one time affair for them, Dylan was frightened of the reaction his children would have. But he needn’t have been concerned. The entire goal of that family was to raise children who didn’t judge people, and were able to love other’s based on their merits, and that is what they did. The love and acceptance by the entire family was just a beautiful read. One can only wish all families could be like this.
Probably my favorite part was how the family came together at the end to create a blended family, just as you would hope would happen now. It was so heartwarming to see how everyone was supportive of Tristan and Dylan’s relationship, as well as all the other relationships that developed throughout the story.
This is a definite re-read for me, as many Kindle Alexander books are. Four and a half pieces of eye candy for Secret! And here’s hoping there might be a follow up book for poor Julian. 🙂
I am sure we have all heard the saying, “that moment when you finish a great book and now you don’t know what to do with yourself”. That was me when I finished Secret. Fantastic writing, lots of different emotions, and amazing characters. I did not want to put this story down until I was finished. I really enjoyed everything about it. The love scenes were sweet, very well done, and soooo hot.
From the first moment Tristan and Dylan meet, they have a strong pull toward one another. The fact that Dylan is married makes this a very unique read, and as always, Kindle takes that part of the story and nails it. Teri plays a wonderful part in Dylan and Tristan’s relationship and I really liked her. There were some great secondary characters as well to add even more life to this story.
This is one Journey I really didn’t want to end. I loved how Secret played out. For sure a reread and 5 pieces of eye candy from me.
