Author: Lane Hayes
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Publication Date: January 8, 2016
Length: 245 pages


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, which include he 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.


Rand and Will; these are the newest MC’s in Lane Hayes New book A Kind of Truth. Rand is the Lead singer for an up and coming band called Spiral. He and his close friends created it, and come to New York to make it big. Because if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. Lacking a guitar player they hire this guy Terry, recommended by Will. Oh Will…. I don’t want to give anything away but Will is positively the best ever! He is truly the meaning of the saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” There are so many layers to him and each time we discover something else you're more in awe of him. Rand remindsme of someone so much the opposite of Will it’s not even funny. From his constant need to move his body, to refusing his own sexual identity. These two were a relationship nightmare LOL. Watching it unfold was like walking through a corn maze. You knew there was freedom, there was a way to openness.
Lane has an amazing ability to grasp an emotion and force you to absorb it. I sat there reading, silent tears pouring from my face. She just seems to get it and it’s a relief when you can feel the author’s own feelings in each word.
This is another fabulous book by this amazing author.
