Two Truths and a Lyle: A prequel novella by DJ Jamison

Two Truths and a Lyle is a fun friends to lover story. I enjoyed the things these guys went through to acknowledge what they really want. The kissing booth part made me laugh and the interfering friends add to the story.

From the blurb:

Two Truths and a...wait, what?!
What happens when drunken idiots, aka your friends, use a silly drinking game to sideswipe you and your BFF with the truth bomb that you’re actually in love with each other?

Truman: You impulsively kiss the best friend you’ve been in love with for ages…then wake up with a hangover—and regrets.

Lyle: You freak out because you’re not gay or bi, before realizing the kiss wasn’t *actually* bad. Then you begin to wonder…should we do it again?

Two Truths and a Lyle is a cute, low-angst M/M romance with two oblivious best friends who are perfect for one another, a town full of quirky residents who get in everyone’s business, and a sweet demisexual awakening.

Reedkaye's Review:

I enjoyed this friends to lovers story. Lyle and Tru are bff’s and have been forever, but Tru is gay and Lyle says he is straight. They spend all their time together and after high school the fear of losing his friend to a relationship causes Tru to decide to go to school away from his hometown.  

In the year they are separated, both guys find they really miss the friendship they had, but neither is ready to take the steps to resolve the problem.  

Both are totally oblivious to what the other really wants. Then they are with friends when something happens that starts the reevaluation of what they want.  

The characters are really likable. The story moves right along and the secondary characters are interfering and entertaining.
