Review: The Current Between Us by Kindle Alexander

The Current Between Us
by Kindle Alexander
Genre: M/M Romance


Gage Synclair, international, hard-hitting investigative photojournalist, is preparing for the final special report of his career…a story of deception and murder six long years in the making. And after ten years in some of the worst parts of the world, he’s ready to settle life down and open an art gallery in his hometown of Chicago. The only thing getting in his way, he needs to find a competent electrician to finish the job before his grand opening.

Trent Cooper, electrical contractor, is surprised by the last minute request for a fast-paced electrical remodel, wanting nothing more than to get his foot in the door with Layne Construction. Being gay in the construction industry isn’t easy, nor is being father to his two young adopted children. Trent keeps his life in separate zones to avoid a short circuit. But when the gallery owner propositions him on the first day, Trent can’t help but think his worlds are a little too close for comfort.

Will their high-voltage passion spark everlasting love or will their lives break the circuit between them forever?

The Current Between Us is a lovely M/M that is low in drama, a bit of insta-love, a tons of sweet moments and a surprising twist towards the end.

Gage Synclair, a famous journalist opening up his own gallery in Chicago. 

Trent Cooper, an electrical contractor raising two adoptive kids.

When Gage hired Trent to work on his gallery they were both instantly attracted to each other. While Gage is more aggressive in his pursue, Trent is a more reserved guy. Trent didn't even want to let his co-worker know that he is gay.

There is an insta-love from Gage part because he is simply too smitten with Trent. He fell fast and fell hard. For people who are allergic towards insta-love, this might not work for them. 

The kids are featured prominently in the book. When I first met them, I thought they are too overwhelming. I mean I can't stand a 4 year old talking insistently to me. But after getting acquitted with them, you might just find them cute. 

I find the story to be pretty low on drama. Gage slowly worm his way into Trent's heart, while Trent slowly accepting that Gage is being serious about their relationship. My attention kind of drifted after the second half of the book.

However, the author throw in a shocking twist towards the last quarter that had me popping my eyes out. Although the twist seems a tad far-fetched, it really did spice things up towards the end.
