Born to a prestigious political family, Avery Adams plays as hard as he works. The gorgeous, charismatic attorney is used to getting what he wants, even the frequent one-night stands that earn him his well-deserved playboy reputation. When some of the most prominent men in politics suggest he run for Senate, Avery decides the time has come to follow in his grandfather's footsteps. With a strategy in place and the campaign wheels rolling, Avery is ready to jump on the legislative fast track, full steam ahead. But no amount of planning prepares him for the handsome, uptight restaurateur who might derail his political future. 

Easy isn't even in the top thousand words to describe Kane Dalton's life after his father, a devout Southern Baptist minister, kicks him out of the family home for questioning his sexual orientation. Despite all the rotten tomatoes life throws his way, Kane makes something of himself. Between owning a thriving upscale Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Minneapolis and managing his long-term boyfriend, his plate is full. He struggles to get past the teachings of his childhood to fully accept his sexuality and rid himself of the doubts brought on by his religious upbringing. The last thing he needs is the yummy, sophisticated, blond-haired distraction sitting at table 34.

Thanks Kindle, for finally doing an audiobook

I’ve enjoyed Always for several years now. Kindle’s books are always amazing. Avery and Kane are great characters together.
I’m disappointed in the narration though. The voices were fairly distinct, so I can’t fault that, but the narrative parts were kinda monotone. And that’s not good, especially during a sex scene. As much as I loved reading this book, if I ever want to experience it again, I’ll read it myself.
Kindle, if you read these reviews, please continue with audio formats for your books. There are plenty of great narrators out there.

An iridescent overwhelming love.. breathtaking

Absolutely loved loved this book! Seriously despaired of Kindle EVER putting a book out on Audible! Well, it was worth EVERY Bit of the Wait! I cried, I couldn't quit listening - and I have read this book at least three times! Kindle has several books that are unforgettable, this is one of them. I am often affected by a strong, cohesive story with characters that resonate - but this is so much more. Kindle is an author that gets to the soul of the character and works out from there - and I feel like i could know and love these characters... I am a heterosexual Christian Grandma who absolutely loves Love - and I would love to have a man like either one of these men! Avery and Kane are mesmerized by each other from the beginning - they each are in love at first sight - Avery gives up a shot on a here-to-fore mission to the Senate - Kane is deeply religious despite complete rejection by his UnChristian Christian Family, dedicated to running his restaurant with his self-made tiny family. Kane wants forever, committed love. You've heard this story before, and yet this is never boring - it is breathtaking. They fill your heart with the aura of their love. They take the time to anticipate and examine the status of their partners - always. Kindle, first thank you for creating or channeling these beautiful people - thank you for translating love for all of us. Lee Swift is perfect for this book - and gives dignity and resonance to Avery and Kane. PLEASE!!!! I BEG YOU to Please, Please release more Audible versions of your books, I find they are a wonderful partner to the read version. I look forward to every new release!

I’ll love this story forever but the narration didn’t connect with me

The story will always be a 5 star. I was beyond excited when this book went to audio. So, naturally my expectations were high in who would be the narrator to bring to life Avery and Kane. It felt really fast paced even in the most intimate moments between the lovers. It was just okay for me.

Great story

This book was so great. I loved the storyline of two men that move through life together. My only problem with it, is that the narrator seemed to be in a race to finish reading it. I had to go back several times due to him reading so fast. otherwise this was a GREAT story.

Always

I absolutely loved this story. I read it years ago and was so excited for the audible version. I have to say I was a bit disappointed by the narrator. He was much too monotone for the story and it just didn't flow as it should have. The book, the story itself is amazing, so much love and so much heartbreak.
