Matthew Rettenmund's rendition of a gay triangle in which Mr. X (probably himself)--a wily hustler--has a dilemma. He is torn for the object of his affections--his roommate Andrew--who will not give him the time of day. He is enthralled by his job as a male prostitute. And finally he has to deal with his other roommate, Joe, who is 17 y/o and is infatuated for X. The result is sort of an old fashioned love triangle--a portrait of love and lust among three very different guys set in the background of Chicago;'s gay life. The book is soft porn, easy to read and mindless.

This book is too interesting. It the standard love story (NOT!) 'X' who is made to make you think in a odd way as yourself has a crush on his roommate. His neighbor has a crush on 'X'. Now throw in your recent sexual endevors and a few akward and uncomfortable moments and you have it. This book will not disappoint you. This is not one that you get 5 pages from the end and forget about because it didn't keep you interested... This is a guarenteed love!
