Tour-Review, Excerpt and Giveaway: Closet Confession by Kindle Alexander


Title: Closet Confessions
Author: Kindle Alexander
Genre: M/M Romance Novella
Release Date: September 8, 2015

This version includes Bonus Scenes adding an additional ten thousand words to this edition. Closet Confession was previously released in the Night Shift Anthology. 

Dr. Derek Babineaux is intelligent, dedicated, and one of the best ER physicians in the fast-paced world of critical care at Tulane Medical in New Orleans. Always on top of his game, he's thrown off balance when the newest medical staff member finally unleashes his hidden desires. 

Justin Delacroix's job at the inner city's busiest hospital might be just what he needs to ease back into civilian life after a long stint in the military. High-performing shifts make working as a trauma nurse at TMC the perfect way to utilize his skills and quick reaction times. There's only one problem, his attraction for one sexy ER doctor is off the charts, but he has his reasons for not returning Dr. Baby's night shift advances. Or maybe he doesn't.





...



“I’m starting to think you might have a crush on me, Dr. Baby.” His own crooked smile spread, hoping he was getting past the too quiet remark from earlier. He didn’t want Derek to see him that way. 


“Then quit dodging me and let’s play doctor,” Derek growled. Justin could feel Derek’s heated gaze on him, but refused to look his way. 


“I don’t mix business with pleasure,” Justin playfully fired right back, like he had every night they’d worked together. Besides, Derek had to know he was such a liar. It took everything in him not to jump the smug doctor right there in the hallway and show him exactly how well he played with others.


“I’m not buying it. Besides, if you don’t want to play with me, then why do I always catch you eye-f*cking me?” Derek cockily countered. The doctor grabbed his forearm, stopping Justin in his tracks. Derek turned toward him and their eyes locked in an instant. Justin wondered if Derek could hear his heart pounding against his chest as he held his challenging gaze. 

This was new to the game.


Every single thing I've read by Kindle I've absolutely loved, and Closet Confession is no exception. Kindle has a way of writing M/M that gets you thoroughly invested in the characters, and the relationships show a depth of emotion that's not often seen even in M/F books. This glimpse at Justin and Derek was fantastic-if a bit of a tease (MORE PLEASE!)-and of course super hot!

Even as short as this is, we get a really good look into the characters-enough to make you seriously crave a lot more of Justin and Derek's story.  It's sweet, sexy, and even a bit emotional for the characters--which in a novella length story is a nice treat for the reader.  And for those like me who are fans of Kindle's scorching intimate scenes...just wait for the closet...

I originally read this as part of the Night Shift anthology, so reading it now with the added material really enhanced the story for me.  We get a bit more backstory and some extended information that helps to strengthen the already solid plot even more.   I really would love to see either this story become fully fleshed out into novel length, or see Justin and Derek appear in another of the author's books with additional scenes or information (kind of like we get more of Jace and Colt in Full Disclosure)...I just want more of these two awesome characters.

A quick, sizzling hot read, Closet Confession is a 5-star read for me, and a top recommendation for M/M romance fans.  Once you read it, you too will want more of Justin and Dr. Baby (I just love Derek's nickname!).  For 18+ due to adult language and an explicit adult M/M sexual scene.

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.
