Overview

Benjamin and Stephen learn they may be able to turn their Domestic Partnership into an actual legal marriage. That is, unless the Mormons get their way as they pour millions into California’s Proposition 8 to block gay marriage. Meanwhile, our Christian-Jewish couple attempts to buy a home for children they hope to adopt. Despite the collapse of the housing bubble and saving prodigiously, they find it is impossible to avoid overpaying for a home. Making matters worse are lenders who refuse to approve what every home now requires: a “short sale.” Benjamin’s brother, James, manager of a “start-up” mortgage outfit in Nevada, doesn’t have any of these compunctions as he borrows and leverages homes, boats, and cars. James’ wife puts up with his extravagance and immature ego, until the odds finally catch up with the Las Vegas housing market. James ends up divorced and wants what everyone else in Obama’s America wants. . . a “bailout” with money from people like Benjamin and Stephen.

Editorial Reviews

J. Luckenbill
This book not only educates, but it gives you an insightful background on one couple's struggles in the gay society and the family life that surrounds them. The story's characters are very likeable and some not so likeable. The brother, is a cocky, money oriented guy who has little regard for his family, but much regard for what those think of him and what he has, only to see it slowly slip away. A true testimate that there is more to life than money and what is also true is that money can't buy

Meet the Author

Your author is a lawyer and one-half of a couple married between the time same-sex marriage became legal and Mormon-backed Proposition Eight was passed. He and his husband tried to purchase a home at the height of the real estate mortgage melt-down caused by the over-levered "noveau debtors." The two are seemingly the only people in American not screaming for a bail-out.

A wonderful read! The tale of a responsible money minded couple and the over leveraged world around them, lev-er-ij by Paul Kevin Wood is a blend of finance, romance, and religion. With a gallant protagonist and multitude of unlikable antagonists the author provides an entertaining explanation of what has gone wrong in our society without the preachy, soap-box feel or similar works of fiction. If you like Peter Schiff, John Downes, Ayn Rand, or Michael Lewis, you will love this book!
