A Kind of Honesty by Lane Hayes

Music is drummer 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 him 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 a handsome stranger in a dive bar turns out to be someone he might 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 tattooed rock star Tim, 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.

This is the third in the series – each book relates to another couple, and it can be read as a standalone, although we do see the results of the previous two stories, so there is linking if you read them all.

Tim is the drummer in Spiral, and he likes being behind the drum kit. He chooses to take the route of least resistance in his life, although coming to NY to try and get the band off the ground has resulted in huge success. He does manage to clear the clinging girlfriend from his life, but what happens next definitely throws him off his comfortable fence edge. I enjoyed watching him realise what was happening, how he deals with it, and just how uncomfortable he has to be to get what is really worth having.

Carter is a man who seemingly has it all, but his past has meant that he knows all too well that money does not equal happiness – and his attempted detachment with Tim is not going well. I loved how his ability to like simple things was such a revelation to Tim. The yoga classes were brilliant fun too. In fact, they make a crazy, but hot couple time and time again. Although from different backgrounds, they have reasonable parity in wealth stakes, which makes some things much easier for them to ignore.

I found this to be a very easy story to read, with some interesting twists, but fundamentally telling a love story as old as time, which is exactly what romance story readers want. Thank you, Ms. Hayes.
