In the tradition of Married to the Mob and The Wedding Banquet, Rob Byrnes' wickedly funny debut novel serves up a deliciously wacky love story about love, family, and singing soprano. . .

"We Are Family" Just Took On A Whole New Meaning. . .

Andrew Westlake's life is boring him into a coma. After fifteen years in New York, he hasn't met up with the gay Rat Pack, become the literary voice of his generation, or met Mr. Right. Andrew is resigned to a life of anti-fabulousness. . .until the night he meets dark, hunky Frank DiBenedetto.

Confident, charming, and sweet, Frank is everything Andrew could ever want, except for one tiny problem—his family. Correction, "THE Family." What can you do when your lover turns out to be the son of the Mafia's top boss, and he's engaged to Anna Franco—daughter of "Crazy Tommy" Franco? Suddenly, Andrew's once-boring life is heating up with enough action to fuel ten novels. In disguise and on the run from "sensitivity-trained" cops, a persistent FBI agent, a scorned Mafia princess, and several guys whose nicknames all have to do with pain, Andrew and Frank are in for a madcap romp of romance, where dating isn't just an adventure—it's a matter of survival. . .
