About the Author

Felix Alexander is a Mexican-born, American-raised novelist and poet of Mexican and Puerto Rican descent.

Acclaimed by readers for his poetic prose, his indie releases include: Dear Love: Diary of a Man's Desire, a collection of love letters, and poems; and The Romantic, a novel.

The release, and increasing popularity of his debut novel has earned Felix a growing audience. With the assistance of the Independent Author Network, and GoodReads, his online presence has gradually expanded across social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Authors Database, Google + andTsu.

Being third-generation military, after a grandfather and uncle who served in the Korean War and Vietnam War, respectively, Alexander is proud of his service in the U.S. Army, and grateful for his experience. After his honorable discharge, he embarked on the long and lonely journey of a writer. Having earned a reputation during his tenure in the military, he vowed to himself, and his fellow soldiers that he would return to the civilian world to answer his true calling.

In the last few years, he has also penned an epic historical fantasy, a mystery thriller, a cozy romantic mystery, and an Upper MG fantasy to nurture his children's love of reading. He is currently seeking representation for all four novels.

When not spending time with his children, a son and daughter, or fielding 9-1-1 calls as a police dispatcher he journeys through the portals of his extensive personal library. When he returns, he immerses himself in his writing and pursues the scent of his muse.

He looks forward to beginning the sequels for three of his completed manuscripts, soon!

I love reading romance novels. I did even before I was married and happily in love. They would give me the hopes and dreams of finding love for myself someday. Hadriel has an undying love for Sophia that we all dream of. He has loved her for as long as he can remember. While on his deathbed he revisits his life and the love he has for Sophia. This is a great book to curl up with on a cold winter’s day. You can get lost in the story and feel comfort. I received this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own.

What a wonderful book! Considering I don't like romances as a rule but I loved this! I loved how the story was written over a lifetime which meant the characters could and were developed so deeply with a real complexity. Which meant you could get to know the characters on a much deeper, more personal level than writer's can always achieve. I found myself really rooting for poor Hadriel and I kept thinking yes! This is it................. only for him to be let down and hurt again. The story and characters were so well written I actually found myself liking the characters that at the same time I disliked! Hadriel is a deep sensitive, beautiful soul alternatively looking for or waiting for his true love. His lifelong love for his childhood best Sophia Paula remains unrequited for many years. The story follows Hadriel's life and how the lives and love's of Sophia and couple of others such as Celest Williams weave through and with Hadriel's life. It is hard to review The Romantic without giving too much away and it is too good a book to ruin with spoilers. The Romantic is beautifully and cleverly written. It will draw you in from the beginning keeping a firm hold on you and not releasing you until the end of the book. I cannot recommend The Romantic highly enough and I will certainly be looking out for more books by Felix Alexander ★☆★☆★
