Présentation de l'éditeur

Sometimes family chooses you.

How does a man get to be forty without knowing whether he’s gay? That’s a question Vince Fierro is almost afraid to answer. If he is gay, it’ll be a problem for his big, fat Italian family. Still, after three failed marriages, he can’t help but wonder if he’s been playing for the wrong team.

There’s only one way to settle it, once and for all—head for Chicago’s Boystown bars, far from anyone who knows him. Naturally, he runs smack into someone from the neighborhood.

Between working two jobs, going to school, taking care of his grandmother, and dealing with his mother’s ongoing substance abuse, Trey Giles has little time for fun, let alone dating someone who swears he’s straight. Yet after one night of dancing cheek-to-cheek to the sultry strains of Coltrane, Trey finds himself wanting to help Vinnie figure things out—no promises, and no sex.

It seems like a simple plan, until their “no-sex” night turns into the best date of their lives and forges a connection that complicates everything.

Warning: This book deals with alcoholism, broken promises, and overbearing little sisters.

Vinnie has three ex-wives. After ex-wife number three he just stopped dating. One day, when he was working a job for a gay couple he began to realize that maybe he was gay. He fought it. Finally he decided to visit a gay bar and see how things went. Just as he was about to leave, Trey walked up to him. And so it begins. The non-dating (because Vinnie's not gay) with Trey, until they are dating.

I enjoyed this story. It was sweet and wonderful and all the things new love, first loves should be. I loved how Ms. Cullinan dealt with coming out and the fears involved with that. I also found it sweet that even though Vinnie was not a virgin, it was his first time with a man. It was sweet and wonderful.

This was a pretty straightforward love story. There was some emotional turmoil in dealing with Vinnie coming out, and Trey's mother.

My biggest problem was the switching of POV between Trey and Vinnie. I also got frustrated because once I got used to the switching POV in first person, she would switch to third person. Every time that happened I would be jolted out of the story.

I don't know how I handled "Family Man"--This novel is a bona fide schmoopfest and not even I am immune to it.

So we have our narrator, the young Trey Giles, who has a sweet old granny and an alcoholic mother. He has a "no sex" rule even though he is out and proud, and he doesn't feel bad for being a virgin (you go glen coco). He meets the closeted but questioning Vinnie Fierro at a gay bar and they leave together to...

...slow-dance at a jazz club.

To me, that's the sexiest part of the book. The build-up is scorching but the pay-off left me cold because I was more interested in the plot and character development. Oh-ho, look at me, I'm doing romance novels completely wrong.

But seriously. Both characters are interesting and multi-faceted. I loved Vinnie's honest talks over cigars and scotch with his sister Rachel and Trey's support from his good-natured put-upon old grandmother. The end was intense and left me scrambling to finish the book.

One way this book impressed me was through the discussions of sexual identity and what it means to be a man surrounding Vinnie. He was never homophobic or judgmental towards gay men, which is rare for closeted men in gay romance novels (in the really bad ones, they spend two chapters stewing in internalized homophobia before being miraculously "cured"). In fact, he dealt with his emotions maturely and at a pace he set for himself, confiding in both his sister and his new lover and making sure they understood his apprehensions about coming out after three failed marriages. He had issues with the fact that he craved receptive penetrative sex with another man, questioning traditional gender roles. This novel made it clear that however a man has sex does not change his gender identity, which is an important point to make because so many people pass judgment. In a same-sex relationship, there aren't clear roles and stereotypes set up through a history of patriarchy, and I hope one day all relationships will be based on mutual respect, pleasure, and equality.

It was also refreshing to see positive female allies and minor characters like Rachel, Lisa, and Sophia. Many gay erotica or romance novels are incredibly misogynistic, pinning the problems of closeted gay men on their past relationships with women. Vinnie spoke frankly to Trey of his prior marriages and made it clear that his own confusion over his sexual identity was what made his heterosexual relationships fail. It wasn't being spurned by a lover or being cheated on (believe me, this is a very common plot device).

The only big problem I had was with the narration style. It was told in first person through Trey, but we also got Vinnie's perspective through third person omniscient. So for awhile it felt like Trey was inside Vinnie's head, which was confusing.

This was a cute, fluffy, surprisingly intelligent, quick romance read. It is very Erotica Lite with more plot and romance than sex.

Forty-year-old Vince Fierro is at a crossroads. After three failed marriages, he suddenly begins to wonder if the problem isn't that he chose the wrong women, but that he chose women at all. For a good Italian boy raised in a huge Catholic family, it's a terrifying question to suddenly be asking himself. After confessing his confusion to his sister, he decides to take her advice and go to a gay bar. If he's not attracted to anyone, he's not gay. The experiment ends in miserable failure, until he runs into Trey Giles.

Trey's family and Vinnie's have been friends forever. When Trey sees Vinnie at the bar, he's astonished. Seeing Vinnie's discomfort, he takes him to a jazz club, where they share a hot dance Trey can't get out of his mind for days afterward. Between college, his two jobs, and taking care of his grandmother and mother, Trey really doesn't have time to help a guy who's just discovering he might be gay, but something about Vinnie makes Trey want to make the time.

Can the tentative feelings forming between Vinnie and Trey survive Vinnie's fears and Trey's difficult circumstances?

I absolutely loved Family Man. Vinnie and Trey are wonderful characters. Both men are caretakers who feel a lot of responsibility toward their families. Vinnie's huge Italian family is a lot of the reason he's afraid to admit he might be gay. The last thing he wants to do is disappoint them, or cause them to turn from him. The family has strong Catholic beliefs that make Vinnie's fears a real possibility. It's during a plumbing job at the home of a married gay couple that Vinnie begins to consider he might be gay, and he freaks out. After gathering his courage, he tells his sister about what he's been thinking, and thanks to her advice ends up at a gay bar. It's not his scene at all, until Trey shows up. Trey's more than a decade younger, and really attractive, and Vinnie is terrified of him--or more accurately, of the attraction he feels for him. Once he allows himself to go with the flow, however, he begins to enjoy himself. Unfortunately, no matter how much fun he's having, or how much he's starting to care for Trey, his fears won't go away.

Trey has his own problems. At twenty-five, he's still in school because he spends most of his time working to support his grandmother and alcoholic mother. He's also still a virgin. Dating Vinnie, who isn't anywhere near ready for sex, seems like the perfect way to have fun and spend time with someone without the demands another guy might put on him. Of course nothing is that simple, and pretty soon Trey starts to want the strings he thought he didn't want. His feelings grow deeper and deeper, but his family and Vinnie's could spell the end of their relationship.

Family Man has so many things going for it I couldn't help but love it. Both heroes are men I'd want to know in real life. I sympathized with both of them, and shared in their joys and sorrows. The secondary characters, especially Trey's grandma and Vinnie's large, Italian family, are great. The conflicts are all realistic, and handled beautifully. The story is told in alternating styles--third person for Vinnie, and first person for Trey. That should have been weird, but was so well done that I ended up really liking it. The partnership of Marie Sexton and Heidi Cullinan brought all the best things about their work together into one delightful book. I can't recommend Family Man highly enough.

Very good romance, well written for the most part. The POV changes more than is necessary, but I really didn't have trouble following it. Some might. I liked that this is not an "instantly into bed" romance. I liked that the characters had mostly regular lives - no one was able to fix everything just because he was extremely wealthy. And the addiction was handled with care.

What a wonderful story about falling in love no matter where you are in your life. Vince is pushing forty and finally able to admit to himself that he's gay and Trey is so lost in his life, suffocating under the burden of a chronic alcoholic. Such a touching relationship between the two men. There is no insta love and jumping into the sack as soon as they meet. It's a love born of friendship, trust and understanding. I kind of wish there had been an epilogue, but I am still satisfied even without one.

Heidi and Marie, thanks so much for this wonderful book
