She was still in the red dress. Her hair glittered under the dark sky. Both billowed behind her in the wind. She stood at the edge of the cliff where he’d nearly dove and ended his life, following the notes of her voice.

She was holding his notebook. His tattered five-cent notebook from Woolworth’s. And reading his words. With tears catching on each syllable.

Oh I see you, Elle Alexander.
I see you.
I'm watching.
This was fun and exhilarating.
Unexpected.
Gripping.
And full of a loving romance that made me smile.
I'm ready for book 2 in the Flashback Series.

Beautiful

This was such a beautiful love story. It takes what we don’t know about people plus what we want to believe and expose how we can miss out on friendship, love, and truth. You do have to allow for some coincidences and an unexplained plan ride home, but the story is so well written, you’ll forget all about it.

Great read

I really enjoyed this book. This was one of the best love stories I've read. The storyline was on point. For Roux to have been on a mountain with her mother as her only human companion until she passed she knew how to handle herself. As a journalist, Ben was simply following his next big story being he had quit his job, he found way more than he expected. He found love. This was an amazing unexpected love story. The chemistry between Roux and Ben was undeniable.

I'm not sure I've ever read anything like this before. Admittedly, I haven't read a ton of books with heavy magical realism elements but something about this one really drew me in. The storyline was very compelling, the characters were beautifully done, and the writing was just gorgeous. These pages turned incredibly fast for me and I can't wait to see what the author has in mind for the rest of the series.

This was a really good book. The premise was something that was new to me. Been has been living a pretty decent life as a journalist. Something major happens in his life and he ends up going with a photographer to find a woman who some day I'd a ghost and others say is cursed. He doesn't believe it at first but he finds her. Her name is Roux and she is not what he thoughte. This idea of her being other worldly makes everything about this book seem like something new. It doesn't feel like your ...more

AMAZING!!!

this book was amazing and complex and entertaining. The characters were human with flaws and faults. This is only part of the reason Why this book was so good. You will have to buy it to find out the other reasons. I do wish there was an epilogue however this book is still kick ass without it.

Incredible!!!!

This book is beautifully written and tells an absolutely refreshing new story. It takes you on a unique story back in time ( not too far back). The characters were unforgettable and fully developed. Great Read!

Original Review @ www.LizaLorenz.com

Though I had never read the work of K. Alex Walker, the book blurb intrigued me. It sat on my Kindle for months before I opened, but once I did, I was floored.

Now, y’all know I try to write, but K. Alex Walker has me rethinking that. Her language and imagery are so stirring and beautiful, it leaves me feeling like I’m splashing around in the kiddie pool. Seriously. I need to simply hang up my pen or keyboard, and find something else to do with my time. This

That was different!!

I downloaded this book twice in my KU, it's like "Do I want to read it?!" ... Anyway, I have read all K.Alex Walker's books, and she never disappointed me before, so I finally decided to read. IT was a definitely good different.
It's amazing, the way Roux is so intelligent, and even without human contact still interacting so belt with people. Well, the naked part was a little strange, but she wasn't in her right mind.
Hopefully,their will be a sequel to fill some unanswered

Didn't understand the need for a new pen name

I couldn't believe the audacity of Abigail, the gangster George and even Ben. They all went to Roux's homeland to deceive her. Then George and Abby basically kidnapped the young woman while lying to her of Ben's death. Still being exploited, she ends up at the place where her own mother became betrayed. Yeah Abby helping Ben get to her wasn't enough. They should have left her at the airport and sent Ben back up the mountain alone. Felt like the book

My God. A masterpiece.

This book was otherworldly good. I read it straight through, no breaks, in 1 sitting. I couldn’t put it down. My poor husband. He’s starving to death and all I could say was, “just give me another minute.”

I’m seriously shook by how good this book was. It was better than good...it was perfect. Ben and Roux were so much better than a love story, and Roux’s backstory just made her own love story that much better. I want to read a million more books like this, even if my

Slow start

I read this after the Angels and Assassins series. It took me until well into the third chapter to attached. But, once you get a handle on who Roux is you fall quickly in love with book. She is quite the heroine. Selfless and intelligent. Strong and sweet. Ben is quirky and lovable, and like most men obsessed with is penis. You’ll love this book.

Ps
I would love to read Abigails’ tale. Maybe hook her up with Blackman who just so happens to bisexual

Definitely a worthy read. This was definitely different & a thrilling read. I did not know if this was going to be a mystical story of black magic from the bayou or or if it was going to be from out of this world. Roux’s character was definitely amazingly written. Overall it kept me on the end edge of my seat.
I would’ve liked to have read about George and Mrs. Clark’s outcome. It did seem that the ending was a little rushed.

Wonderful romance. This book was magic. Well written with fleshed out characters, I could not help be engaged with the artful tale Alexander wove. I fretted over Roux's safety. I found myself holding my breath as Ben tried to reach her in time...I believed that smarmy George character so much that it's difficult to believe that Roux would escape him unscathed but in the spirit of Romance I am glad she did. I'm so happy I found this book. I look forward to reading the author's other works.

This book was soooo good!

I hardly write reviews and I NEVER read books like this because it is in fact, very different. But Im so glad I did because this story was so well written and was one I found hard to put down at night. I only wish I could read more like it, but I wont because Im sure the next different book I read will be a major disappointment. Well done, K. Alex Walker. Well done.

Lovely Love Story

Ben and Roux, what a lovely story. Beginning with Roux's Mom and her Dad, the true love of two people were excellently depicted in this story.
It was nice to read about the genuine humanity shown by Tez.
Definitely a book with reading, a little different from the usual IR fare, but it leaves you with a good feeling.

What a story!

Not my typical read, but so glad I took a chance on this book. I loved Roux, and her viewpoint of the world as she knew it to be. Sad that she grew up in the way she did, because of the times. Ben, came to Oyster Key on a mission for a story, and found so much more. Their love was magical! Great read!

With A Kiss, I Die was a beautiful was a refreshing story where the author took time to Show the progression of a couple's relationship. It's is funny, heart-warming and unique. Ben and Roux are fully fleshed out characters, so it's easy to understands who each is and motivates them to make certain decision.

Wooooo

This book was really good. It was totally different from the usual "cookie cutter" stories that are out now. I would however liked to know what happened with Abeigal. And did they live in the cave or get a regular house

I didn't know what to expect when I first picked up this book, but it blew my mind. Great story. A little heavy on some of the descriptions at times, but overall really enjoyable and emotional story.

Slow at the beginning but we'll worth it at the end

A mysterious woman on an island and a journalist looking to find her. Be careful of what you seem for you shall find it.

I thought this book was very well written. I enjoyed the slow bike in the relationship of the characters.

Great as always. I love the Shakespeare reference as a title. I haven't read a book by you that I disliked yet.

Great Read

At first I was a little confused then I got the story line. I loved Roux she was comical at times. Ben was crazy a bedbug but I loved the depth of the man.

Epic

A classic love story with a “feel good” vibe. Love the nod to Octavia Butler with the sci-fi component. Reminded me of Kindred a bit. Keep writing because sis- you can write!

Different but good

A wonderful love story...one in the past and the present with Ben and Roux. I highly recommend reading this book.
