A Kind of Honesty
A Kind of Story, #3
Release Date: October 7, 2016
Music is Tim Chalmers’s great escape and the one thing that’s never let him down. But his band Spiral’s meteoric rise to fame has made it difficult for the drummer to maintain a low profile. Unwanted press pesters him after a public breakup with a volatile ex-girlfriend who loves the limelight as much as he loathes it. Tim’s main goal is to avoid confrontation. However, when he meets a handsome stranger in a dive bar who turns out to be someone he may know, everything changes.
Carter Hamilton-Temple might be a successful financial consultant with more brains, sophistication, and charm than most, but he always falls for the wrong guys: closet cases or men with issues. He can’t fight his attraction to the tattooed rock star, but can he trust his own judgment? When the thrill of danger combined with a fierce physical connection proves too strong for either man to resist, a quiet liaison away from the public eye and curious friends seems like a safe bet. But some secrets are hard to keep. When rumors threaten to rock his world, Tim realizes it’s time to confront his fear with his own kind of honesty.
“What kind of a rock star are you? You’re supposed to love sex, drugs, and alcohol. I haven’t known you long, but you seem to only really like one out of three,” Carter commented idly as he shuffled the cards.
“You’re right. I’m a sucky rock star. I rarely have more than one drink when I go out for dinner or even at a bar. Two at a party. Anything more usually leads to trouble. And I never take drugs. Even cold medicine makes me nervous.” I winked and gave him a lecherous grin that no doubt looked far from provocative in my current condition. “But I love sex.”
Guest Post with Lane Hayes
1. What made you want to become a writer?
I’ve always loved books. Everything about them. I love the way they smell and how they look on display. I love bookstores, libraries and home collections. But most of all, I love the words. I suppose spending all of my spare time wrapped up in stories made me think I should try to write one of my own. My first book, Better Than Good was my first published effort. It was written for my gay son just as he was leaving for college. That was four years ago, and I haven’t looked back!
2. Are you working on another book?
Always! I’m finishing edits on book four in the A Kind of Stories series, but I’ve already begun the first book in my new stories set in San Francisco.
3. Have you written any other books that are not published?
I’ve written a ton of short stories. These are free reads available on my website at www.lanehayes.wordpress.com. My Better Than shorts mainly feature Matt and Aaron from Better Than Good but the A Kind of Stories one feature all characters. I haven’t posted any for my Right & Wrong stories series, but that will change when I start book 4 for my LA guys.
4. What do you think about the ebook revolution?
What’s not to love? Ebooks have made growth and visibility possible in the MM genre. Honestly, ebooks are responsible for my career change. I love what I do, so no complaints!
5. Do you write alone or in public? Alone.
6. Music or silence? Silence. I like it very very quiet!
Thank you for having me on your blog today! Happy Reading!
