Up and coming football hero, Colt Michaels, makes a Hail Mary pass one night in the college locker room that results in the hottest, sexiest five days of his young life. However, interference after the play has him hiding his past and burying his future in the bottom of a bottle. While Colt seems to have it all, looks can be deceiving especially when you’re trapped so far in a closet that you can’t see your way out.
Jace Montgomery single-handily built the largest all-star cheerleading gym in the world, driven by a need to forget a life-altering encounter with a handsome quarterback a decade ago. When he learns some upsetting news about his ex-lover, his heart executes a barrel roll and his carefully placed resolve tumbles down without a mat to absorb the shock. Can his island escape help him to finally let go of the past and move his life forward?
Deputy United States Marshal Mitch Knox apprehends fugitives for a living. His calm, cool, collected attitude and devastatingly handsome good looks earn him a well-deserved bad boy reputation, both in the field and out. While away on an assignment, he blows off some steam at a notorious Dallas nightclub. Solving the case that has plagued him for months takes a sudden backseat to finding out all there is to know about the gorgeous, shy blond sitting alone at the bar.
Texas State Trooper Cody Turner dreams of being a Texas Ranger, and he’s moving up the ranks, well on his way to making it happen. But for the next two-weeks, he’s on vacation, and his plans include relaxing and helping out on his family’s farm. The last distraction he needs is a tatted-up temptation who walks into the bar and steals his baseball cap.
As Mitch’s case gains nationwide attention, how will he convince the sexy state trooper that giving him a chance won’t jeopardize his life’s plan…especially when the evil he’s tracking brings the hate directly to his doorstep, threatening more than just their careers?
Honor, integrity, and loyalty are how Deputy US Marshal Kreed Sinacola lives his life. A former SEAL now employed by the Special Operations Group of the US Marshal Service, Kreed spends most of his life working covert operations…and avoiding relationships. But his boundaries blur and his convictions are put to the test when he finally comes face-to-face with the hot computer geek he’s been partnered with.
Aaron Stuart strives for one thing: justice. Young and full of idealism, his highly sought after computer skills land him a position with the National Security Agency. Aaron’s biggest hazard at his job is cramped fingers, but all that changes when he’s drawn into the middle of a dangerous federal investigation. And his attraction to his new inked up, dark-haired partner provides another kind of threat altogether. While Aaron tries desperately to place a firewall around his heart and fight his developing feelings, one misstep on his part could ultimately destroy him.
The solution isn’t as easy as solving the case, which is treacherous enough as it is. But the growing sexual attraction between them threatens to derail more than just Kreed’s personal convictions as he quickly learns temptation and matters of the heart rarely fit easily into the rules he’s lived by. Will Kreed be able to convince Aaron to open his heart and face the fact that sometimes the answers aren’t always hidden in code?
Kindle Alexander’s Nice Guys series is one of the first sets of M/M books that I ever read, so in a way, this series began my love and passion for M/M reads, and to this day, I have adored EVERY SINGLE one of Kindle Alexander stories.
So when I saw that a Nice Guys Collection was being released with over 30 K in bonus content, a re-read was in order, and let me tell you, my love for Alexander’s men hasn’t changed and the new insights readers get into the lives of these swoon worthy couples is EVERYTHING because the new scenes Alexander chose to write for each pair of men provides further examples of why I can’t get enough of them or Alexander’s writing!
Double Full Review
Double Full is a story of two men who can’t help but want and love each other despite all of the obstacles, mitigating factors, and doubts that plague them as their 5 day love affair redefines their lives but also breaks their hearts and sends them down extremely isolated and lonely paths until they find a way to make things right, even if that means the rest of their lives become tenuous and out of control.
It’s clear from their very first encounter that Colton Michaels and Jace Montgomery own each other’s bodies but more importantly their hearts, and in the five glorious days that they spend together getting to know everything they can about each other, there’s no doubt that the love they feel is not something that will dissipate regardless of Colt’s father’s threats and mistreatment or Colt’s devastating decision to cast Jace from his life.
Colt takes the necessary steps in order to protect Jace in the only way he knows how, and despite the heartbreaking repercussions that send both of them spiraling, Colt didn’t feel he had any other choice, and it’s his suffering that makes me unable to fault him for the pain he caused because he was just as negatively affected as Jace, and I think, in some ways, Colt suffered even more than Jace did because Colt didn’t have any support; in fact, all Colt had was a group of blackmailers and leeches – people who only cared about Colt’s money and fame.
Kindle Alexander meticulously illustrates everything that leads to Colt’s out of control behavior and the heinous and deplorable people who reign over him and then
when Colt finally decides that he can no longer live under other people’s demands, Alexander provides him a means to make amends, not caring about the fallout because Jace makes him happy…makes him feel content…makes her world so much better and Colt is done not having the man he loves in his life.
But just because Colt decides to take back his life doesn’t mean it will be easy because while his priority is to prove himself to Jace, there are a number of factors to deal with and even some that Colt could have never anticipated.
Colt and Jace’s story hurts so good! It will break readers’ hearts and then slowly put them back together as Colt does everything he can to reclaim the man who has always owned him. It amazes me just how easy it is to see and understand the connection these two men have given the fact that they only spent a short amount of time together ten years ago, but the insight that Alexander offers in terms of how they’ve never been too far away from each other’s hearts even though they weren’t physically close demonstrates the kind of love and the kind of bond they have, which makes it beyond clear that Colt and Jace are destined to be together.

After meeting Mitch in Double Full, I knew his book was going to be full of his no bullshit, take charge attitude, and I was not disappointed. But Kindle Alexander also shows a side of Mitch that he rarely lets out and allows very few to see even when it does, and that’s what I loved the most. When Full Disclosure begins, Mitch’s investigation into the string of hate crimes against gays heats up after a Senator’s son is kidnapped and almost killed. Because the case that he fought to get funding for finally gets approval, Mitch is forced to head to Washington DC and work with the FBI in order to find out who’s behind the murders/attempted murders. Mitch is completely on board with putting this case as his number one priority, especially after becoming close friends with one of the victims, Colt Michaels. But Mitch also has Colt to thank for his strong desire to settle down and find someone worth more than a roll in the sack with, and right before he gets called in for the investigation, he meets Cody Turner, a Texas State Trooper, and Mitch feels like he may have finally met the guy to turn his life upside down – in a really sexy and welcoming way. But between the case, the distance, and Cody’s hesitation in starting a relationship with him, Mitch has his work cut out for him. But if there’s one thing readers learned about Mitch in book one and easily saw again at the start of this story, when there’s something he wants to do or have, he’ll stop at nothing to make it happen, regardless of the risk to him personally, and this time around, lives are not the only thing at stake…his heart is also in the equation now.
After reading several of Kindle Alexander’s stories, I have grown to expect dynamic characters and a multifaceted storyline that focuses on all of the drama, passion, suspense, and conflict that exists both in the private and professional lives of the main characters, and that is exactly what readers get in Full Disclosure. There are two stories simultaneously occurring – Mitch’s investigation and Mitch and Cody’s blossoming relationship. Neither is very far from Mitch’s mind, but both are extremely important to him, so he knows he needs to prioritize in order to be at his best. Mitch has a game plan for both situations, which makes him quite the man of action, both in and outside of the bedroom. Mitch is one kickass hero who has never felt more complete than with Cody in his life. I love the fact that there’s barely any drama in their relationship; there’s enough turmoil swirling around Mitch due to the case, so for Cody to center him, even when they aren’t physically together, is exactly what Mitch needs to get the job done.
Full Disclosure is a fantastic play on words for Mitch and Cody’s story. Readers get to witness all of the complexities of Mitch’s full personality both as an agent and as a man falling in love…as reluctant as Cody was to outwardly reveal his homosexual lifestyle, Mitch makes him realize the depth of their feelings for one another, which prompts him to boldly disclose the man he truly is…Mitch’s serial killer finally exposes himself, and as all of the pieces of the case finally reveal themselves, the truth behind the killer’s motives surface.
This is another gem of a read from Kindle Alexander; fantastic storytelling with an abundance of hot guys, steamy scenes, and suspenseful situations. Bring on Kreed and Aaron’s story!

Full Domain Review
Domain ~ a specified sphere of activity or knowledge
For Kreed Sinacola and Aaron Stuart, their skill sets make them valued contributors to the protection of innocents, and while they complete their tasks in much different ways, the end result saves lives and rectifies situations that aren’t meant to occur because of the injustices they represent.
Kreed protects with his US Marshal badge and gun while Aaron protects with a computer and a mathematical and coded mind, and while Aaron may see them as being on opposite ends of the law since Aaron goes somewhat around it in order to solve his cases, when they end up as temporary partners, seeing through the hate crime case that Mitch Knox began, Aaron realizes that there’s way more behind the honor code that Kreed lives by and Aaron might just be the person who can decode who Kreed Sinacola truly is and find a way to give them both what they want.
Integrity and loyalty are two concepts that Kreed knows well; as a Deputy Marshal, he is extremely self-disciplined, knowing that the risks are high and it’s his job to protect the innocent and take down the bad guys, and he’s damn good at his job; in fact, he reads people so well that he anticipates their moves before they make them, making him one hell of a defender of the innocent. Kreed’s not one to mix business with pleasure, but there’s something about Aaron that speaks to him…heals him. Their connection is palpable, but as temporary partners in a high profile case, Kreed does his best to keep things professional between them until his body and emotions overrule his mind, and his desire for Aaron takes control.
When it comes to computers and hacking, there’s no one better than Aaron, and because he’s all about the greater good, he’s thought to be a modern day Robin Hood, crossing ethical lines and breaking a few rules in order to expose the bad guy and make the world better. His attraction to Kreed is just as strong as Kreed’s pull is to him, but Aaron has even more secrets than Kreed, information that Aaron believes the “incorruptible public servant” that Kreed is would not agree with and ultimately be forced to do something, which isn’t something Aaron’s willing to risk…that is, until he can’t fight his need for Kreed and succumbs to its demand.
What transpires is explosive in a number of ways because even after Kreed and Aaron’s undercover case ends, there’s a different situation they need to take care of – one that’s more life changing and more meaningful than the first because it signifies a new beginning for both of them but only if Aaron shows Kreed who he really is and Kreed accepts him regardless of his past.
I absolutely adore Kindle Alexander’s books. I’m a huge M/M reader, and Kindle is one of the reasons that genre is one of my favorites. There’s such depth to Kindle’s story lines and characters, and while there is quite a bit of steam in each of the texts, the sexy scenes are there to illustrate the connection between the heroes and to be the language that they use in order to truly show how they feel when words seem to fail them or scare the hell out of them. In book in Kindle’s Nice Guys series builds upon the previous ones, allowing readers to catch up with their previous favorites as they’re introduced to new ones who are just as sexy and dominating as the others. Since meeting Kreed, I’ve wanted to know everything about him and Full Domain gave me all the insight I craved, leaving me one happy reader!

Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!
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.
