Summary (From the publisher):

Keith, Tommie, Marco Antonio, and Rafael each ended up in L.A. for different reasons, via different paths, from Mexico to Michigan, from the Ivy League to the streets. But they have one thing in common—they're all looking for Mr. Right.

Keith, a preacher's son from Detroit, is looking for love in all the wrong places. But when Cupid answers his paryers with a man who's hot and smart, he's got to wonder if it's too good to be true. Especially since his on-the-prowl pal, Rafael, a striking Latino heartbreaker, usually gets all the guys—including the ones Keith wants...

Rafael's problem is that he doesn't really know what he wants—so he's willing to try just about everything. On his own since fifteen, Rafael craves—and attracts—attention everywhere he goes. But he also attracts trouble...

The most stable of the group, Marco Antonio is finally closing the deal on a long-distance romance with an up-and-coming actor. Even his tight-knit Mexican immigrant family is excited about the relationship. But when the Hollywood celebrity machine interferes, Marco yearns for the stability of a regular guy—and eventually finds himself torn between two lovers.

No one understands living in the shadow of a lover's limelight better than Tommie. A former member of a now defunct R&B group, Tommie has fallen for a college basketball player with a dazzling future in the pros. But at thirty something, barely out of the closet, with little left to show for his once-hot career, Tommie can't help wondering what a young rising star is doing with a fallen star like him...

Navigating a fast-paced world populated by divas, drama queens, and DLs, the guys learn what's really important. That having it all means being ready—mind, body, and soul—for whatever comes your way.
