About the Author
Usually I try for funny. Humor is an important 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 can be a tricky deal. I don't want to offend anyone and humor tends 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 imagine 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 her 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 announced their brand new ereader. She had no idea the Kindle was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it...Never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to know my writing partner. I would have never gotten through those dark days without her unwavering support and guidance. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. For the first time I used the hand offered. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her. It takes a special person to stand beside someone at a time like that. I will love her forever. I could go on and on about both of them, but I won't and now you know a little more About Us.

I could barely put it down. Amazing .
Kellus & Arik meet through mutual friends and have a project in common. Arik loves his art and wants to have more pieces. Kellus has been hurt in the past and is shy about trying again. Arik is determined to get through to the elusive Kellus. When the chance comes across his path, he is sure he can talk Kellus into the plan as well. Only time will tell. Both have pasts full of pain and loss. These characters reaching out to one another kind of felt like the blind leading the blind. Like real life. Then the story picks up... and let's just say I was pleasantly surprised. Very nice read. ***This ARC copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.
