It's not easy breaking into show biz. Especially when you aren't exactly loaded with talent. But Malcolm Fox won't let a little thing like that hold him back. Actually, it isn't the show-business part of his life that bothers him as much as the romantic part-or the lack thereof. At twenty-six, Malcolm has never been in love. He lives in San Diego with his roommate, Beth, another struggling actor, and each of them is just as unsuccessful as the other. While Malcolm toddles off to this audition and that, he ponders the lack of excitement in his life. The lack of purpose. The lack of a man. Then Beth's brother moves in. Freshly imported from Missouri of all places, Cory Williams is a towering hunk of muscles and innocence, and Malcolm is gobsmacked by the sexiness of his new roomie from the start. When infatuation enters the picture, Malcolm knows he's really in trouble. After all, Cory is straight! At least, that's the general consensus.
John Inman has been writing fiction since he was old enough to hold a pencil. He and his partner live in beautiful San Diego, California. Together, they share a passion for theater, books, hiking and biking along the trails and canyons of San Diego or, if the mood strikes, simply kicking back with a beer and a movie.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh This book did not get me hooked right away; I'm not going to lie and say that it did. After the third chapter however it was interesting enough to continue to read. I found that the humor parts were in the first few chapters which is what nearly made me turn away. Once there was a plotline worth following the story did get better. This book is worth a read if you want something entertaining but not too in-depth. This gets a 3/5 as I almost didn't finish reading it (but was advised to give it three chapters before deleting the book) It would have been 4/5 should the beginning be as entertaining at the rest.
