Rand O’Malley dreams of superstardom. He hopes to one day sing the blues like a rock god. Moving to New York City and hiring a new manager are steps to make his dreams a reality. But nothing moves as fast as Rand would like, and everyone has opinions, for example that he should keep certain pieces of himself quiet if he plans on making it in the Big Apple. Like his bisexuality.

Will Sanders is a gifted musician who dazzles Rand with his ability to coax gorgeous notes from an electric guitar one moment and play the piano like a professional the next. He’s a geek, but Rand isn’t concerned about Will’s pressed exterior clashing with his tattoos. His focus is music. Yet there’s something about Will that makes Rand think there’s much more to the quiet college student than he lets on. As Rand’s dreams begin to materialize, he’s forced to reconsider his priorities and find his own kind of truth. One that might include Will.

Story Review:

Lane Hayes is one of my favorite authors when I want an utterly captivating love story. She is my go to when I am searching for two characters with depth and a connection that I can feel in my bones. A Kind of Truth upheld Ms. Hayes as a master storyteller and romance writer and I fell in love right along with Rand and William.

This was not the rock star story I was imagining. There was little debauchery and tons of fidelity and romance. William and Rand were captivating together and I loved seeing their true selves slowly revealed. I loved learning what made them where they were but even more, I loved seeing them learn each other. I enjoyed watching them turn from strangers, to friends, to more. Their story was not always easy, but it was perfect in that it fit their personalities and left me sure in their longevity. They were perfect for each other and I was swept up in their romance and totally satisfied with their ending. I hope to see more of these men in the upcoming books in this series.

Narration Review:

This was my first time listening to Seth Clayton as a narrator and I will be listening to him again. This narration started out a bit rough but Clayton quickly found his stride and really brought this story and these characters to life. I think his narration added to my enjoyment of this book and I hope he is the narrator for the rest of the series.
