# 1 Bestseller in Gay & Lesbian Drama (LGBT Drama & Plays)! LGBT Literary Fiction filled with tons of heart.
In the truest sense of the word gay, our marriage doesn’t smack of happily ever after. Sometimes life reaches forward and slaps you upside the head with what’s important—health, love, friends—and alters your course.
In this 83,000-word comedic look at married life…
Evan and Dillon want more than anything to save their marketing firm from bankruptcy—and their marriage from falling apart. Financial problems and health issues distance the two, preventing true love from showing through. Casting their dog in a movie being shot on-location in New England is the only way to meet the next mortgage payment. Now, the studio wants Dillon to take on a new role…leaving his pants behind in the dressing room.
