Author Name & Publisher: Rob Rosen (MLR Press)
Publication Date & Length: November 11, 2015 – 262 pgs


One man, four lovers, and just ten years to choose one set the Hollywood stage in this hilarious coming of age tale of family, friendship, and fate.

Eddie is in love. The problem is, Eddie’s in love with four men… four men simultaneously, that is. But who does Eddie love more? And can the heart feel for that many men equally? Ah, but it does have four chambers, so four seems the most logical choice… at least, of course, to Eddie.

Paula is Eddie’s famous mom. One by one, each of his lovers comes to work for her, their lives so connected that if one of them itches, another one scratches. But who will wind up with whom in this comedic tale of life and love and friendship? In the end, it’s up to fate to decide what none of them could possibly have seen coming.

This book is a little light reading from Rob Rosen. Eddie has four lovers but manages, mostly, not to be a jerk or too shallow about it. He’s an affable guy. His heart is eventually in the right place. His mom’s a stand-up comedian, which adds a nice rags-to-riches storyline, and also, who doesn’t have a mother to deal with?
Fate is pretty long and there’s a lot of set-up, but I definitely liked the ending. It’s worth reading on a beach somewhere. There’s not a lot of explicit sex. It’s more the fun, frivolous tumble of boys in the sheets. A lot of our enjoyment is at Eddie’s expense, so join in!
