Devin’s Boys by Layla Dorine Blog Tour

New Small Town Gay Romance, All American Boy Series. Devin's Boys by Layla Dorine. All their pieces have jagged edges, but with a little twisting and turning, and a lot of songs, they might discover a way they can all fit.

Coming home was supposed to be the end of something, until Mikal barreled into his life…. and he wasn’t alone.

For Devin McKay, music has been his lover, his drug, and his best friend for as long as he can remember, but there was always something he denied himself while he pursued it. Now that his band has broken up and he’s returned to his hometown of Stoney Brook, he’s settled into a new, somewhat drunken routine, while he tries to get accustomed to this new phase in his life. The last thing he expected was an old friend to send a troubled young musician his way.

Mikal needs help, or rather, his best friend, Moon, needs help getting over the blinding bouts of stage fright that have been plaguing him for the last year. He’ll do anything to get to the root of Moon’s issues, even follow along with the unorthodox methods Devin prescribes for them. After all, Devin was a success in the industry, while Mikal and Moon have been struggling to get a foot in the door.

They aren’t the only ones struggling. Moon’s longtime friend with benefits, Derrick, spends most days rudderless and pretending to be okay. There are things he needs that Moon tries desperately to give him, but Moon has needs too. All their pieces have jagged edges, but with a little twisting and turning, and a lot of songs, they might discover a way they can all fit.

**All books in the All American Boy series are stand-alone novellas with some cross-over elements.**

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Devin’s Boys starts with intense emotional drama between best friends, Moon and Mikal, that had me in tears pretty quickly. I was totally sucked into the story, desperate to know what was causing Moon such fear of performing and causing him to let his best friend down.

Mikal seeks help from experienced musician Devin to help his best friend and himself on the musical front. What he gets is a man who helps them personally and professionally and helps change their lives. I don’t want to give away anything that happens, but I loved where the story goes with the relationships between the men. The last part of the book was just lovely, and the emotional tension was dialed down. I do feel like we skipped over the nitty-gritty of a lot of their relationship dynamics that I’d really have liked to see. I guess I’m greedy. This is not a long book and I wanted more.

Devin’s Boys is the first book I’ve read by Layla Dorine and a week on from reading it, I’m still surprised by how quickly she was able to grab my attention and emotions with her characters. Even with all the drama, this is a beautiful story, and the author has a new fan in me.



Author Bio

LAYLA DORINE lives among the sprawling prairies of Midwestern America, in a house with more cats than people. She loves hiking, fishing, swimming, martial arts, camping out, photography, cooking, and dabbling with several artistic mediums. In addition, she loves to travel and visit museums, historic, and haunted places.

Layla got hooked on writing as a child, starting with poetry and then branching out, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. Hard times, troubled times, the lives of her characters are never easy, but then what life is? The story is in the struggle, the journey, the triumphs and the falls. She writes about artists, musicians, loners, drifters, dreamers, hippies, bikers, truckers, hunters and all the other folks that she’s met and fallen in love with over the years. Sometimes she writes urban romance and sometimes its aliens crash landing near a roadside bar. When she isn’t writing, or wandering somewhere outdoors, she can often be found curled up with a good book and a kitty on her lap.
