Title: Painted On My Heart
Author: Kindle Alexander
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: January 2, 2017
Artist Kellus Hardin let love and loyalty cloud his past decisions, a mistake he definitely won’t make again. Now, lost and alone, he’s left to pick up the shattered pieces of his broken heart while facing the truth of his reality.
Arik Layne exudes power, confidence, and determination. But when an encounter with the guarded artist shakes him to the core and alters all his future goals, he finds more than just his heart on the line.
For Kellus, opening himself to love isn’t an option.
All Arik wants is to make the artist his.
Painted on your heart will leave you breathless. First let me say that I'm a true admirer of Kindle Alexander. With that being said, I just loved Painted On My Heart. But to be honest, the plot with Kellus stumped me. I've never read anything with that being "Positive" and having a healthy sexual relationship. Between Kellus and Arik, you can't go wrong.
I totally felt for Kellus what he was going through and still went through with his former lover. He kept getting more and more shattered. But the one bright side was his Art. That uplifted him. Made him smile. The starving artist was Kellus. When people saw his artwork, people loved it. And Arik was no exception. You can say he was a huge fan of his work. With prior pieces, he had Kellus commission a piece of artwork with his newest hotel expansion. Arik didn't have relationships, he had BTs (boy toys). But after meeting Kellus, he wanted a relationship with him. This is where my eyes were opened in regards to HIV Positive with an undetectable viral load and PreEp. Knowing relationships actually do exist opened my eyes. I loved Arik's alpha come out. "It's better to ask forgiveness, than ask for permission". He needed the man more than oxygen.
I really enjoyed Painted On My Heart. But go in with an open eye. Things really do happen for the right reasons and for the good.

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.
