Publisher's Summary

When Gulliver Leverenz abandons LA to make a fresh start in New York, he leaves behind his family, his friends - and one bastard ex-boyfriend. It’s certainly an impulse move: Gully has no job, no money, and no direction. What he does have is a former fraternity brother with a posh apartment, a crew of incredibly hot friends, and a reputation as a rising star in the gay nightlife scene.
As luck would have it, Gully soon snags a job with a talent agent and even finds himself a new boyfriend. There’s just one catch: Gulliver knows this budding relationship could get him in a lot of trouble. And inevitably, it does just that.
The whole mess blows up in his face, leading to an onslaught of catastrophes that leaves him in a tragic and seemingly hopeless situation beneath the skyscrapers. But Gulliver is tougher than he realizes and is determined to prove, once and for all, that he has what it takes to make it in New York.
By turns exciting, sad, and hysterically funny, Gulliver Takes Manhattan is a candid tale of one man’s adventures in the greatest city in the world.

Dirty delight!

If you could sum up Gulliver Takes Manhattan in three words, what would they be?

Dirty, dirty dirty!


Would you recommend Gulliver Takes Manhattan to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes. The book is really explicit at time, but is very tongue and cheek in a way that keeps you listening.


Which scene was your favorite?

The scene rigt before he gets his internet "job"


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Welll...several. Listen and you will know what I mean.


Any additional comments?

The fraternity brother "Bro" thing was not believable, but the characters became a littl more real by the end of the book. This was a good listen, funny and unexpectedly erotic. DO NOT listen to this at work! Looking forward to the next book.

We Have Your Drama -- Right Here!!

This book is bursting at the seems with twink drama! If you are a fan of going out, getting drunk, dragging a guy home and having sex with them before you even know their name and then passing out only to wake the next morning with an empty bed and a hangover (or occasional STD), this is your book! If you want to know what it is like to live in the gay clubbing / partying scene in New York (at least, according to the author), this is your book! If you are interested in how to "fall" into the porn industry, this is your book! If you want to know how to seemingly bounce back from betraying your friend after having sex with their ex, this is your book!

There were parts of the book that had such potential to be so much more if only the characters were true to their hearts and allowed others to love them as they are instead of lying even when it wasn't necessary.

I guess, I may be too old to appreciate this book for what it is: the gay Sex In The City... or a modern Tales of The City, at the very least... it just wasn't my thing!

On the plus side, I did listen to the whole book before deciding to write a review.
