Steven Ferrante is a 33 year old gay boy from New Jersey, living and working in Manhattan as the producer of a popular TV soap opera. His personal life is likewise filled with drama, including the sudden end of a relationship he was sure would be "forever," and the constant attention demanded by his vocal, crazy group of gay friends, who try to encourage him to date again, while mostly failing at that same endeavor themselves. Then there's his rather pushy Italian mother, who uses Steven's show-business connection to raise her leadership status at her senior living complex back in NJ. When an interesting guy Steven meets at his favorite Starbucks doesn't call him as promised, he tries to hide his disappointment from his friends by getting more involved in their individual dramas, He also considers what he might need as therapy for his disappointment: a one-night stand with a famous gay porn star he ran into (literally) in Chelsea. This talented author's first novel (He has written several successful screenplays) is a fast-paced, hilarious romp through NYC's gay dating scene, a lesson on coming out and self-acceptance, a bit of a satire about actors and soap operas, as well as a lesson on what makes relationships work. Loved the positive depictions of the diverse secondary characters, which included a lesbian couple as well as older gay men, not a common occurrence in books centered on younger gay men. Make sure the lasagna isn't burning in the oven, and then check out this warm and funny book, which I give a full five stars out of five! - Bob Lind, Echo Magazine

This was a great book. Hugely dramatic, but really funny and sweet.

This book about a young gay male soap opera producer living in New York City is fun light-hearted entertainment. His close family of friends (and outspoken mother) is ever-present to help him navigate his endless search for a boyfriend. The story exceeds the bounds of realism, but there is much to laugh at for those familiar with American pop culture. The author embraces and pokes fun at a lot of gay stereotypes, which are amusing, but way over-the-top. While there isn't much in the way of graphic sex scenes, sexuality is frequently discussed in a very explicit manner. As I believe many straight people would find this off-putting, the novel is mostly for the niche gay audience. Still, this casual read will brighten your day. Michael Travis Jasper, Author of the Novel "To Be Chosen"
