Overview

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Paul Auster doesn't. Paul doesn't believe in much at all. He’s thirty, slightly overweight, and his best features are his acerbic wit and the color commentary he provides as life passes him by. His closest friends are a two-legged dog named Wheels and a quasibipolar drag queen named Helena Handbasket. He works a dead-end job in a soul-sucking cubicle, and if his grandmother's homophobic parrot insults him one more time, Paul is going to wring its stupid neck.

Enter Vince Taylor.

Vince is everything Paul isn’t: sexy, confident, and dumber than the proverbial box of rocks. And for some reason, Vince pursues Paul relentlessly. Vince must be messing with him, because there is no way Vince could want someone like Paul.

But when Paul hits Vince with his car—in a completely unintentional if-he-died-it'd-only-be-manslaughter kind of way—he's forced to see Vince in a whole new light. The only thing stopping Paul from believing in Vince is himself—and that is one obstacle Paul can’t quite seem to overcome. But when tragedy strikes Vince's family, Paul must put aside any notions he has about himself and stand next to the man who thinks he's perfect the way he is.

    A JOYOUS DISAPPOINTMENT!!!

    While I was awaiting my 3rd installment for OBATK I'd thought this was it... soooo NOT!! And so I kept putting it off, thinking "WhatTheHello"?? And so I googled and read some reviews and thought WTH!!! And so I bought and read... the one scene that got to me (and I don't care what the author or the licensed critique says) was when Paul envisioned himself running down in a penal fit pissing himself 'round Vinnie staking his property!!!! lol.. now's there's a man whom felt confident and in love claiming ownership (if only in his jealous fitted boxers)!! While the dinner scene @ WHO WE ARE claims so much more in the novel and it's predeccesor... I fully love my "fav" scene from TMIR!! hehehehhh!! Although I was disappointed... you SURELY distracted me Mr. Klune!! Good one... now just hurry up and get me my Drew and the Kid story!! Now there's a title.. DATK!!

    A Funny and Unlikely Romance

    Paul isn't the buff, stand-up guy he wishes he was, donuts and a basic desire to be a couch potato get in his way. Vince is sexy and buff, but not the brightest bulb in the pack. The relationship between these two odd lovers are tied together with parental authorities and a cross-dressing trans-diva known as Helena Handbasket, Paul's oldest and dearest friend. Can two such unlikely people find happiness and a fore-ever after relationship together? It's worth reading to find out.

    LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!!

    I really liked the 2 Bear and Otter books (and am still hoping for another), but this book was one of the best I have EVER read, and I have about 1000 books on my Nook.
    The story was fantastic, the characters realistic and very likeable, but most importantly, it was embarassingly laugh out loud hysterically funny. I woke my husband up laughing after midnight and scared my kids -- you can't hold in the laughter! I often had tears rolling down my cheeks.
    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
