Publisher's Summary

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.

A- rating...

My Review:
Overall: 4.25
Performance: 4.25
Story: 4.00

I have really enjoyed this entire series and this book was no exception. Carter and Tim met one night in a bar and have a one-night stand. It's a little sleazy, a little shady, but it's all hot, hot sex. It was a nice escape for both of them. What they didn't realize at the time was that they have very close mutual friends.

So, when they see one another again a few weeks later at a friend's party, they are both shocked...both by their connections and who exactly they each are...they'd lied about their identities. From their a friends with benefits arrangement develops that slowly morphs into more.

Like I said, this was totally enjoyable. It's not a new storyline...Tim is out, but it's only on paper. He's never been photographed with a male lover by the press, so his mom just wrote their saying that he's bi as sensational reporting. And that's not something that Tim really wants to change.

Carter is out, but he's a very high-profile businessman so he likes to remain the arrangement works for him...until the made up stories by the paparazzi about Tim get to be too much.

Nothing earth-shatteringly creative, but a highly recommended read/listen. I need to check and see if book #4 is available on audio yet.

4.5 stars- Consider me hooked

A Kind of Honesty is the third book in the A Kind of Stories series that follows the rock band Spiral’s band members and crew as they find their special someone. I hadn’t read the previous books when I began this audiobook and I had no trouble following along. After finishing this title, I can say with surety that I plan to go back and read the previous two books. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, plot, and writing, and look forward to continuing this series.

From the outset I liked both Tim and Carter. They had their flaws but were good men who were relatable in different ways. I thought the initial meeting was great, and as I’ve had some dicey motel rooms in the past, I laughed a lot at the descriptions and commentary- particularly Carter’s disgust. This seamless weaving of humor into the dialogue and scenarios continued throughout the book, and I found myself chuckling and smiling often as I listened. I’m always a fan of opposites attracting, so I appreciated how the men contrasted with one another. Sometimes these differences added a good dose of humor and other times it led to personal growth, giving a nice balance to the romance.

Tim’s and Carter’s struggles and conflicting emotions regarding pursuing a relationship were believable, if a little drawn out. However, I liked the two men together and the resolution of the main conflict was satisfying. I really liked seeing Tim grow throughout the book. The story is told entirely from his perspective, and that worked well to keep some of the mystery regarding Carter’s feelings a bit secretive. The chemistry between the couple was undeniable, both in and out of the bedroom. I appreciated how strong it was from the start but that the author managed to build it throughout the book. Their relationship felt like a natural progression from a casual fling to more.

All in all, this was a great story with good characters, dialogue, humor, and heat. Narrator Seth Clayton delivered a great performance; so much so that I may listen to the first two books rather than read them. His pacing, intonation, and even addition of appropriate emotion into the scenes made the characters and story stand out. I’d definitely recommend the audiobook version.

Another good performance from Seth....

***Audio review. Seth did a really good job as per usual of bringing Lane's characters to life. Tim, who came with a shedload of family baggage and didn't really want be forced to come out of the closet and admit he had fallen in love with a guy, but could see how much he was hurting Carter who'd been hurt before by guys not being honest about who or what they really were or wanted. I loved Carter from A Kind of Romance.***

Well, this one took me slightly by surprise I have to admit....I was expecting it to be from Carter's POV, and Lane completely threw me by pairing him up with Tim, the bisexual drummer for Spiral and making it from Tim's POV, but what a hot pairing it was once Tim's trust issues [and believe me, that guy definitely had issues, thanks to his sister, dad and ex boyfriend] were out of the way. :D. But, as the story title suggests, once he was truly honest with himself and Carter, things could only get better... 4.25 stars for this one.

So happy to see that my sweetheart Benny and his Zeke were married, and there were little cameos from Will [sighs] and more input from Rand obviously as Spiral were seemingly intent on world domination in this story. I've loved this series.
