Publisher's Summary

Isaac Dalton is the guitarist for Spiral, arguably the biggest rock band in the world. The band’s meteoric rise to super-stardom has its perks, but fame and fortune aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. Nonstop touring and performing exhaust Isaac, and when an overzealous fan makes it imperative that he travel with a clingy bodyguard, he is ready for a break from the madness. More so when his newly single first crush shows up on his doorstep. Adam is strictly off-limits. He’s a memory from a place Isaac would rather leave behind. And he’s straight.

Fun-loving former athlete slash construction worker Adam McBride desperately needs a new beginning. And New York City is the perfect place to start over and think about how to rebuild his life. A short stint as roommates with his brother’s best friend from high school seems like a mutually beneficial arrangement. However, when friendship gives way to fierce attraction, both men find themselves in uncharted and possibly dangerous territory. Isaac has to decide if he’s willing to take the ultimate risk for a kind of love and a kind of home he never dreamed possible.

Loved it!

A Kind of Home is probably my favourite story in this very enjoyable series. I liked the main characters, Isaac and Adam, and how they gradually moved from friends to lovers. The kitchen scenes in Isaac’s apartment were pivotal to their relationship. Some were fun, some sexy, and the one near the end is a downright tear-jerker. I loved their time at the cottage when they could really spend time alone away from fans and other distractions. The stalker storyline added tension and uncertainty to the story, and I thought it worked well, keeping the reader/listener guessing. I’m also glad we got to see the other Spiral members and catch up with their lives.

Seth Clayton’s narration is spot on as usual. His soft voice and his style of narration imparts the right emotion for each scene and he presents the characters in a believable way. Listening to him brings the characters to life and added to the enjoyment of the story.

A Kind of Home is book 4 in the A Kind of series and it can be read/listened to as a standalone, which is what I did. Still, I think the experience would be even better if you read/listened to the previous books in the series as well, which is what I'll try to do as soon as possible.

Isaac is the guitarist for Spiral, the biggest rock band in the world, and while that comes with certain perks, it also comes with the lack of a private life and overzealous fans, some of which can turn dangerous.

Adam is in New York, set on starting anew after his divorce. He's been housesitting for Isaac and while Isaac isn't too sure he wants Adam in his house, he simply can't turn him away.

Isaac had a huge crush on Adam when they were teenagers while growing up in Springville, and it isn't that surprising to him when their friendship turns into more. However, real life has a way of interfering sometimes.

The story is very good, balancing Isaac and Adam reconnecting as friends, before they give into the attraction they both feel for each other, with Isaac's life as a world-class guitarist and the suspense of the stalker plotline.

I really liked Isaac's sense of humor, he's down-to-earth and self-deprecating. Adam was adorable, and so laidback and fun, really, Isaac stood no chance against him. Their chemistry was out of this world and it was lovely seeing their progression from friends to lovers.

Overall, A Kind of Home was a great audiobook. I wasn't too fond of the whole stalker thing, I do understand that it's something many artists have to go through, it just made me antsy and I couldn't enjoy the story at its fullest because I was waiting for something bad to happen. But other than that, it was interesting and sweet and fun and really, really hot, which shouldn't be a surprise, this is Lane Hayes, after all!

The narration was amazing. Seth Clayton did a fantastic job bringing Isaac and Adam to life. I love all the inflections, emotions and effects he adds to the narration, making it feel more realistic and elevating the book to a whole other level.

Really, book or audiobook, you simply need to get his one, you won't regret it. (My co-blogger Tracy recommends the entire series, since it's her favorite, by the way.)
