Bookstore owner Randy Stone is smitten. His new boyfriend, Kyle Temple, is sweet, hot, attentive, and great in bed. But introducing Kyle to his family takes courage, because Randy's parents can be a little judgmental, and Kyle is ten years younger than Randy, a small-time pro wrestler, and dumber than the proverbial sack of hammers. Needless to say, Randy's parents aren't exactly thrilled, and even his best friend is skeptical. Despite the challenges, Randy is determined to tough it out for Kyle. After all, enduring a few scornful comments from his mother is nothing compared to what Kyle's going through trying to quit smoking for Randy. When a hypnotherapy session designed to help with Kyle's cravings leaves him quoting Jesus Christ-in Aramaic-Randy's parents are suddenly the least of their problems. Once word gets out, their privacy is destroyed. News crews follow them everywhere, and everyone who knows Kyle seems determined to make a buck. It's a mess that could make Kyle's dreams of wrestling in the UWE come true-but what about his dream of being with Randy?

In this book, they are used to great comic effect,...

Review Summary: A humorous satire that would have worked better for me with fewer logic holes and more three-dimensional, likeable characters.Review: The premise of this story sounded absurd in a way I thought could be fun. It had some great humor but there were too many logic holes for me to really...
