 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.


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

To be honest, this is the first book of this series I've read. Kinda loss about the other band members, but it solved from the start, which was good for people like me.
This is definitely can read as a stand alone, the other characters from the previous series only appeared in a small amount of scenes, except Rand, who's obviously a good friend of Tim.
There's no surprise in celebrity's life that 'public performance' is way much important than your love life, your personal life. And Tim lived there.
No surprise the way his relationship with Carter became a disaster after the 'feeling' involved.
No more 'just sex'.
But, I'm a little conflicted about Carter's need. I recalled he's the one who didn't want 'this to be a relationship", just sex was okay. And Tim agreed of that.
But along the way, as he developed his feeling for Tim, he demanded Tim to obey him, to come out, because he wanted ' a relationship'?
What about a 'just sex' kind of relationship you declared in the beginning, Carter?
You've made Tim confuse, ffs! #TeamTimmy

As for Tim,yeah, we know he's a kind of 'weak', but that's his world, a fake world of entertainment.
I think Carter, need to be a little patient about that too, instead of doing what he did to Tim.
Okay, it made Tim 'moved' to come out, but IMO, it's because Tim afraid to lose Carter.
Poor guy. Still #TeamTimmy.

And I hate Miranda! Some female in MM are oblivious, and that makes me wants to murder them! Repeatedly! Grr.

I was entertained by how the steam Carter and Tim made. They're hot when they're together from the start! And that makes me happy! Ha!
Overall, this is an enjoyable read, I need to get back to the first installment of this series soon. I need to read about Benny!

Oh, and this one? Recommended!

   Lane Hayes is grateful to finally be doing what she loves best. Writing full time! It's no secret Lane loves a good romance novel. An avid reader from an early age, she has always been drawn to a well-told love story with beautifully written characters. These days she prefers the leading roles to both be men. Lane discovered the M/M genre a few years ago and was instantly hooked. Her debut novel, Better Than Good, was a 2013 Rainbow Awards Finalist and her third in the Better Than Stories, Better Than Friends, received an Honorable Mention in the 2014 Rainbow Awards. Lane loves red wine, chocolate and travel, in no particular order (on second thought, maybe wine first). She resides in Southern California with her amazing husband and a regal old yellow Lab in an almost empty nest.
