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.

Boy Meets Boy Exclusive Excerpt of A Kind of Honesty by Lane Hayes

We lay facing each other in the darkened room later, drenched in sweat. Carter leaned in slightly to kiss my nose and brush my hair away from my eyes. His smile was incandescent. There was no way not to return it.

“I like your family. Your mom is sweet.”

My eyebrows rose comically. I flopped on the pillow then reached over to smack his ass.
“Mood killer.”

He chuckled and scooted closer again, but left a small space between us in deference to the July heat. Even at night, it was suffocating and the air conditioning was taking its sweet time. Or it was on the fritz, I mused as I ran my thumb over his right tit then squeezed.

“Ow! Cool it. I’m not allowed to talk about your mom?”

“Not after sex! That’s a golden rule everyone on the freaking planet knows. Geesh.”

Carter’s grin widened. “Well, I like her. And Liam. You’re lucky.”

I reached for his hand and laced our fingers together when the need for contact overrode the need to cool down. “I don’t always think so, but I know I am. I wish Mom had something besides worry to keep her occupied. I used to think getting involved with the church was good for her. Now I think it feeds her paranoia. Liam makes everything okay.”

“How so?”

“He gives her a reason to get up in the morning. Even though he lives with his dad, he’s at her house all the time. He keeps her grounded. She can moon about how much he looks like Kat while she spoils him. He’s her second chance with my sister.”

“How is she doing?”

“Kat? She’s the same. A mess.  She hates our mom and sometimes me. She’s angry and destructive. And sometimes… borderline evil.”

“Ouch. Well, she may be a hot mess, but she has a pretty cool kid.”

I chuckled. “Yeah. I feel guilty that I’m not here more often but…I don’t want to come back. The memories suck. I’d rather visit and make fresh ones than wallow in all those ugly feelings. If I didn’t have music, I wonder if I’d be in rehab with her. Music saved me.”
