A Kind of Truth by Lane Hayes
Series: A Kind of Story
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Contemporary, MM
Lead singer Rand O’Malley has brought his band Spiral as far as they can go in Baltimore, so he’s talked his band mates into trying their luck in the Big Apple. They’re down a lead guitarist however and need to fill the spot quickly. Of course if Rand wasn’t so picky it would be easier. Through a recommendation he agrees to give Terry a chance, but he tells Tim and Cory there’s no way the guy will work if they want Spiral to make it big.
The idea of improving his own guitar skills has Rand signing up for individual classes with NYU student Will Sanders. From the first moment he hears Will playing his guitar Rand knows that this is the guy who should be in their band. Will would cement the sound Rand wants for Spiral. Unfortunately, Will won’t budge in his refusal.
After a night playing in a small club and indulging in way too much alcohol Rand can’t believe his eyes when he spots Will with a much older man, dressed in drag and looking kind of hot. Perhaps following Will home isn’t the smartest plan, yet it works and one thing leads to another between them. Seeing that Rand is more than just a brash musician Will agrees to join their band, at least until the fall.
Their band sounds fantastic; people love them, including the critics. There are too many emotions stirring too strongly however for everything to run smoothly. Terry is furious. Rand and Will are falling in love and denying it to themselves. And if that wasn’t bad enough there is another trying to pull their strings and ruin it all. Everything Rand has worked for may spiral down the drain before summer ends.
Want verses need, A Kind of Truth is of course, relative to who’s asking. Two very different personalities, one strong on the surface and the other a core of steel underneath. Rand and Will butt heads and hearts in A Kind of Truth. Their romance is woven into the struggle to succeed, to achieve big dreams. Great characters find their way in a thoroughly entertaining storyline. A Kind of Truth rings clear and true.
