Sometimes family chooses you.

At 40, Vincent "Vinnie" Fierro is still afraid to admit he might be gay - even to himself. It'll be a problem for his big, fat Italian family. Still, after three failed marriages, it's getting harder to ignore what he really wants.

Vinnie attempts some self-exploration in Chicago's Boystown bars, far from anyone who knows him. Naturally, he runs smack into someone from the neighborhood.

Between working two jobs, going to school, taking care of his grandmother, and dealing with his mother's ongoing substance abuse, Trey Giles has little time for fun, let alone dating someone who swears he's straight. Yet after one night of dancing cheek-to-cheek, Trey agrees to let Vinnie court him and see if he truly belongs on this side of the fence - though Trey intends to keep his virginity intact.

It seems like a solid plan, but nothing is simple when family is involved. When Vinnie's family finds out about their relationship, the situation is sticky enough, but when Trey's mother goes critical, Vinnie and Trey must decide whose happiness is most important - their families' or their own.

Trigger warnings: [spoiler] Discussion of alcoholism, medical emergency of a side character, discussion of death. [/spoiler] I've never read this duo before and aside from one nitpick, I really enjoyed this story. It's well told and written, the characters are fully realized, and there's conflict...

Very well written and plotted, though I could have wished for a more comforting ending regarding the alcoholic mother of Trey. B-

4.0 Family Man
Such a great story of growth and support and love. Family love and support are huge here. There are also moments of such family heartbreak. It's a good relationship and a lot of dynamics at play. Very enjoyable.
