The Current Between Us by Kindle Alexander

As in the previous book I read by Kindle Alexander, you can tell this author knows romance and romance rules. This is a cinderfella meets prince charming story, family values, happily ever after and all. There is basically everything you want in your romance, the teasing, the courting, the showing off how proud you are of your beloved (with red carpet walk and all). There is also the sex, but not so much or too much to distract you from the love story: these two men enjoy each other bodies, but it’s not for the sex they are together (even if Gage quite enjoys Trent’s body).

I have also found quite true the issue Trent is having finding the right partner to share his already made family of two children under 6 years old. True there are gay couples wanting to marry and having children, but when the family is already there, and it’s not yours, I believe it can be more difficult to find a partner.

The main story was the love story between Gage and Trent; there was a mystery/thriller subplot concerning Gage that will have a connection with Trent, sincerely, I think that part was a distraction from the love story, and, ab absurbo, the one that was more disconnected from the realm of possibility: when I say this is a perfect romance, I’m implying this is stuff from the dreamland, but actually not impossible in real life; you can fall in love with prince charming, and prince charming can fall in love with you, true, there aren’t many of them around, but if you are lucky enough, you can find yours; but all the political/thriller/adventure plot, involving secret services and very important people, well, that was something out of the romance dreamland and maybe it clashes with the pink cloud where I was lulled by the reading of the love story.
