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.

I loved the personality quirks of the characters. Total reread over and over for me. Loved it.
tell ME ... "It's REAL" ... Forever, forever ....
TJKlune's epic wonderful delightful tale will keep you laughing - wanting Sandy and Paul's romantic adventure to never end! Their wit and banter, their dialogue is hilarious following each encounter as twenty year old handsome Vince decides he is falling in love - when he tells thirty year old Paul "the first time I saw you, I fell in love with you! ... And now I know I love you!" Each of TJKlune's endearing protagonists are well defined in their descriptive analysis. One of the best written books I have read, enjoyed, and laughed out loud reading!
Hilarious and very cute
Paul and Vince make the most unlikely couple but they couldn't be more perfect for one another.
