Sex in the Title - a romantic comedy, kindle ebook by Zack Love

This hilarious collection of interrelated stories follows five men and their adventures in NYC as they search for dates, sex, and love. The novel features hysterically funny mishaps, witty dialogue, philosophical musings, and romantic situations and dilemmas. There's even a tad of erotica (after all, there is literally “Sex” in the title!) but it's incorporated in a tasteful and selective way. The book could be described as a male version of “Sex and the City” (the series) with Milan Kundera-esque observations about life and human psychology.

Adding a touch of nostalgia to the experience, “Sex in the Title” takes place from 1993 to the spring of 2001 -- a time that was simpler in many ways. The Twin Towers still majestically decorated the Manhattan skyline and terrorism was rarely mentioned as a national concern. Calling the main phone number of a business generally still yielded a human being rather than five minutes of robot-voiced call options. Cell phones weren’t nearly as smart or ubiquitous as they are today, and social media hadn't yet been invented.

In this bygone era, the story begins when Evan's boss fires him with an email. The next day, his girlfriend dumps him, also via email. Afraid to check any more emails, Evan desperately seeks a rebound romance but the catastrophes that ensue go from bad to hilariously worse.
