Overview

Tuesday, 9:35 a.m.

To do list:
1.Try to smile when people mention my backstabbing, lying, ex-boyfriend, Daniel.

2.Ply my ugly cat, Dexter, with some catnip--the good stuff--to keep him away from my last fur-free Hugo Boss suit.

3.Decide whether or not having a baby with my best friend Gretchen is the craziest, stupidest, most insane, incredible thing I will ever do.

At thirtysomething, Blaine Dunhill has a great career in fashion advertising, a fab NYC apartment, and some loyal friends that he's trying to share amicably with his ex, a famous soap star. Working in the big-time cosmetics world is all about glamour and artifice ("Like Barbies that can talk"), but what the self-professed nice guy from Wisconsin really wants is something and someone real to come home to. And then his best friend Gretchen makes him a really tempting offer: Since neither one of them has found the real thing yet, why don't they start a family together? Suddenly, as life becomes a whirl of ultrasounds, online baby registries, baby names (Civil Liberty, anyone?), and other adjustments, Blaine discovers something surprising: No one is more attractive than an expectant father. Now, in the wacky, gossipy world of fashion and celebrity, where coming out has never been more "in," and the words "gay dad" are synonymous with "way hot," Blaine is in for the wildest ride of his life...and a shock that will change everything...

    Awesome

    This is one compelling writer. I couldn't believe how real this story was for me, as I read it. I am going to have to start reading everything this author puts out.

    A Wonderful Joyride of a Novel

    I¿M YOUR MAN is the third book published by that talented foursome known as Timothy James Beck. The three novels detail the lives of several friends, most of whom live in New York City, but are originally from Eau Claire Wisconsin. IT HAD TO BE YOU concentrates on the budding relationship between Daniel, a recently retired female impersonator, and Blaine, an up and coming advertising executive. HE¿S THE ONE focuses on Adam, a hunky computer wiz, and Jeremy, a struggling actor and a former lover of Daniel¿s. In I¿M YOUR MAN, Daniel, and Blaine, are once again the primary protagonists. The story, this time around, is told from Blaine¿s point of view. Blaine and Daniel have broken up and the split was anything but amicable. Each said horrible things to the other, and both are terribly bitter. Of course they still love each other madly, so moving on for both is proving extremely difficult. Daniel, currently the most hated/loved villain on daytime¿s popular Secret Splendor, is filming a TV movie in Hollywood, while Blaine continues on in New York. Blaine is a mass of battling emotions. He really misses his ex-boyfriend, but he remains angry over a deception he feels Daniel perpetrated on him. He wants desperately to get on with his life but his feelings for Daniel just won¿t go away. When a mutual lesbian friend, Gretchen, suggests Blaine have a child with her, Blaine struggles with his decision. He and Daniel wanted to raise children one day and he feels guilty about going ahead with the plan on his own. With humor and compassion, I¿M YOUR MAN, deals with many issues facing the 21st century gay community. Family relationships, gay families, child rearing, transgender acceptance, public outing, and personal honesty and forgiveness are all tackled with equal sincerity. While slightly more idealistic in nature, I found I¿M YOUR MAN to be reminiscent of the best of William J Mann, a personal favorite. There is an underlying honesty here that is rare in popular gay fiction. In each subsequent installment the characters have evolved and grown, as have the writing chops of the authors. I¿M YOUR MAN maintains the romantic warm tone of its predecessors, but it¿s definitely a deeper and more involving read. I heartily recommend all of Timothy James Beck¿s novels, but especially this emotionally fulfilling joyride.

    The Best Novel Yet From Timothy James Beck

    This is by far the best novel in the series of the lives of the Daniel and Blaine. I couldn't put the book down. The book starts with the shocking breakup of the beautiful and sensitive Daniel and the gorgeous hunk Blaine. The novel takes the reader to the whys and hows along with the surprising decisions and events that happen in their never boring lives. Their characters are written very well, with realistic problems and human flaws. The other supercouple, Adam and Jeremy return as well. The supporting characters add greatly to this novel. This is the third novel in the series that introduced us to Daniel and Blaine. This is even more touching, funny at times, heartbreaking and rewarding. I highly recommmend reading the first two books to get an even better perspective of their relationship. I hope this isn't the last that we read about Blaine and Daniel. Each novel from TJB gets better and better.
