Hard Act to Follow by K. Vale

Kyrie is an actor with a physical aversion to telling lies, a one-eyed cat, and horrible taste in men. His ex-brother-in-law and best friend, Greg, harbors a secret crush he can’t shake. After denying his feelings for Kyrie for too long, Greg finally gives in to desire one drunken night. Come the morning, the facts get twisted. Kyrie pretends he doesn’t remember a thing—a lie that eats him alive—and Greg can’t stop thinking about how he screwed up the best thing in his life.

Before they can clear the air, Kyrie follows his dreams to New York City, but could he also be running away?

A mistake from Kyrie’s past detonates their silence, and Greg is forced to confront the man he loves. Is their new truth strong enough to support a relationship, or are they doomed to crumble under old fears? Their friendship could evolve into something a million times stronger, but maybe Kyrie’s act is just too hard for Greg to follow.

I was a bit worried when I first started reading this book because at first, I didn’t realize that it was the 3rd book in the series.  So I was pleasantly surprised that it ended up being fine while reading because the other books didn’t seem to have a role in this one.  That might not be the case in all honesty, but I personally didn’t feel lost or confused while reading it in the slightest.
I really enjoyed the characters in this story, especially Greg.  I am a total anguish person when it comes to stories, and I thought there was just the right amount of that in this story.  I loved Greg’s character because I really liked the back and forth with him, he knew what he wanted but he was afraid to go after it.  To me, that’s what made the story so much better because it wasn’t an insta-love and completion story, there was enough in it to keep my attention and make me want to read to more to find out what was going to happen.
I did still enjoy Kyrie’s character, he wasn’t one of my favorites, but I do think that he was a good match for Greg.  He was very fun loving and easy to like, which I do enjoy with characters at times.
Overall, I can say that I haven’t read anything by this author in the past, but I will be sure to keep an eye out for more books by them in the future.
