4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Story 27 March 2015
By Paul Berry - Published on
Devon Alexander is a very wealthy and successful businessman and the world is his and he knows how to take what he wants. The one area of his life that's not as successful is his personal life. He's in a complicated relationship with the beautiful Jesse Young whose an aspiring model. Can Devon and Jesse overcome their differences such as a huge age gap and outside forces.

I felt connected with the relationship of Devon and Jesse right from the beginning. I enjoyed the characters, sometimes Jesse could be immature but he's quite young so it's understandable. I found if these guys would stop listening to their friends then half their problems wouldn't even exist. Yes they have a May-September romance and it works for them even though their friends have more of an issue with it then they do.

I enjoyed the writing style of this author and the story flowed quite nicely. My only issue is that I would have liked a longer story as some parts felt a bit rushed but that doesn't affect the story at all. This was a fun read and I enjoyed their story and beautiful connection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book Review by Brandilyn 13 April 2015

3 of 5 Stars

For original review see The Prism Book Alliance® Blog online

I either loved this book and admire the author for her ability to make me care about these two broken characters. Or… I hated it, and I can’t believe the author made me care about two characters that don’t know how to have a relationship or a backbone. Sitting here, almost 5 hours after finishing Young at Heart by Kay Ellis, I am still not sure what camp I am in.

I think there will be readers firmly in both camps, to be honest. There are going to be readers that can not stand Jesse. Those who will be unable to forgive him for being a fragile, scared, abused boy just trying to make in the world. Those who will take his actions as those of someone unworthy of Devon.

There will be readers who will only see Devon as spineless. As someone who gives up too easily and then forgives too quickly. One who lets their friends and family manipulate them and dictate too much of their lives. One who is way too old to have a 19-year-old boyfriend.

In the other camp will be readers who can’t see Devon and Jesse with anyone but each other. Who will have their heart repeatedly broken while reading their fumbling attempts to have a relationship. Who will hope with their last breath that Devon will see past the lies he is told to the real Jesse. Hope that Jesse will be able to trust in Devon with everything he is.

Whichever camp I am in, I have a sincere loathing for Antonio and Erica. I am not sure how Devon was blinded by them for forty-one years. It makes Devon’s judgement quite suspect in my eyes. We are told that he was a ruthless business man before Jesse came into his life, but we never see that side of Devon. I agree that Jesse messes up, repeatedly, and I know there will be those unable to forgive those indiscretions. There was a point that I was unsure if I would.

There were a few times throughout Young at Heart that facts or events were thrown in without explanation. These events didn’t feel organic to the story and served only to interrupt the flow. Almost like the author was told “this doesn’t make sense” so she threw in a bit of backstory to explain it without working that bit of information into the plot itself. For example, I never understood the friendship between Antonio and Devon. We are repeatedly told that Antonio is Devon’s best friend, but we are never shown any reason this is the case.

I think the heart of the issues can be summed up by the fact that we are often told important bits of information and expected to believe them and understand them to be true. However, we are never shown the context to allow us to form a complete opinion. As such, whether you love Jesse and Devon or hate them, there is a maturity that is lacking in the writing. That lack of sophistication also serves to prevent me from fully understanding and empathizing with Jesse and Devon as characters.

Even though they get their happily ever after, I am not sure that they deserve it. I am left with a sense that they won’t last because I haven’t been shown a reason they should.

I believe Kay Ellis will continue to improve her craft as she matures as an author. I would love to read more from her to watch that development.
5.0 out of 5 stars Devon Alexander is a forty year old successful businessman who has the world by the tail with the ability to do anything he woul 4 April 2015
By TN Nova - Published on
Young at Heart is a novella written by Key Ellis. Devon Alexander is a forty year old successful businessman who has the world by the tail with the ability to do anything he would like to and date anyone he wanted. At work, he’s in absolute control of what happens around him as well as being very decisive about what he wants and needs to be done. Unfortunately, his private life is a different matter altogether.

Jesse Young is an eighteen year old unemployed model want to be who has had a hard life growing up with tramas, issues and baggage being brought into the on again off again relationship with Devon. That’s not saying Devon doesn’t have his own baggage and issues being brought into the relationship. With all the outside influence surrounding Jesse and Devon along with their own issues, the question is whether they will end up having their Happily Ever After or if they will end up tearing each other and their happiness apart.

Young At Heart is an amazing coming of age story as well as one where the two main characters are growing into themselves and their relationships even with such a huge age difference between them. Devon and Jesse are very well developed and yet, they aren’t the picture perfect, life was always great type characters. They have their flaws and issues that they both need to deal with to get to the point where they would like to be at in their lives.

Not only did I find myself cheering for the two of them but grumbling, growling and getting frustrated at the same time. There were moments where I wanted to smack them both upside the head and tell them to get a clue and other times I wanted to give them both a huge hug while telling them everything is going to be just fine. Also you have Erica, who is Devon’s mother, and Antonio who is his best friend. Both of which are setting up the two to fail in their relationship while taking advantage of every insecurity that the two guys have within themselves.

I will tell you now that Erica was a character who I would have smacked and called her a few choice names if she were standing before me. All in all I give this book a 4.5 stars out of 5. Such a lovely story with a super special ending.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing story! 20 March 2015
By Alina Popescu - Published on
This was a wonderfully real story of flawed characters that was dark and sweet at the same time. I loved every minute of it, despite my many attempts at slapping Devon across the face. At times, I had to wonder who was the kid in the relationship, Jesse or Devon. Then again, it is their flaws and past trauma that makes them both so genuine, so relatable.

Devon is used to doing as his mother tells him, and that behavior impacts all his other relationships. It is why he is so easily swayed by his best friend and why he cannot make up his mind to be with Jesse or end it with the young man. On the other side, Jesse has even more severe childhood trauma to deal with and because of his lack of a support system to get over it, his actions are often misinterpreted. Circumstances, events, and people play against these two, and yet somehow, you can’t do anything but hope they will make it through.

I made the mistake of starting this story one evening, thinking I would read for a bit and get some sleep… Yeah, no such luck, I stayed up late till my eyes got hazy and woke up at the crack of dawn to finish it. I would recommend tissues, but then again I cry easily, All in all, a must read story and hats off to Kay Ellis!

This is the first book I have read by Kay Ellis and I really enjoyed this book. I love M/M books and was excited to read Young At Heart. I am glad that I had the opportunity to read this amazing book. I love the writing style of Kay Ellis.She will have you falling in love with this book and her.

This is a beautiful M/M love story that will capture your heart. I was hooked from the beginning and read this book in just a few hours.

I fell in love with the relationship between the Devon and Jesse. The twist and turns they had to endure in their relationship are easy for the reader to relate to and realistic.

I absolutely love that her main focus is the obstacles and influences that Devon and Jesse have to endure in their relationship,not just the hot scenes. Now, do not get me wrong there are some very hot scenes in this book that definitely melt the pages.

The ending was perfect and left me wanting more of Devon and Jesse.

I recommend this book for all readers. This is a beautiful story that will captivate you and melt your heart. You will fall in love with the storyline and characters.
