Always Alex By Robin Alexander

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆


Friendship. Love. Sweetness. Heat. Well-developed MCs and supporting characters. This one has it all right.

Dana Castilaw and Alex Soileau are childhood friends playing together, making wishes in a faux well together. Two years older than Dana, Alex left for college and then over years lost touch when the busy-ness of life took them over. Twenty years thence, Dana is forced to return to her hometown with her daughter due to pecuniary circumstances, to stay with her father, who she had tried to escape in her young age. Back home, she learns that Alex has also returned a few years back. The two of them reunite and immediately get back into the easy rhythm of their friendship. However, all those years back, Alex was just discovering she was gay and in love with her best friend. She neither acted on that emotion then, nor has she ever been able to entirely get over her first love. With time, Dana realises that her impassioned acts for and with Alex in their teens were not entirely explicable to platonic friendship. She begins to see her behaviour in new light and figures out that she may not be all that straight, after all.

This book is such a great read. It is fun and funny. It draws you in right away, from the first scene itself. Dana and Alex are great characters, individually and together. Every single secondary character is fully realised and all relationships well drawn.

Highly, highly recommended.
