Excellent Book! I am not sure what book the other reviewers were reading, because I found this book refreshing, the characters well fleshed out (both literally and literarily), and perfectly paced.
Ziggy is really the man we all want to meet and fall in love with….(at least I do, in at least one of my several fantasies!). He is kind, generous, thoughtful, and fully aware of who he is. I have read a zillion M/M books, but found this one different in respect to the characters interaction. The auth

felt sorry for the characters being trapped in this book .
367 pages !!! 367 pages !!! for what ? 3-6-7 !!!! unbelievable
nothing is happening , absolutely nothing . its a story about 2 guys who meet in a parking lot outside a gay bar
one of them is straight and the other one is gay . so far it sounds normal to me .
the gay guy was dumped couple of hours earlier by his abusing bf and he is kind of lost .
at the same night he is being asked by the straight guy to move in with him just base on a go

This is a relaxing read, like you get stoned just by reading it. It's a comfortable read. There's interest in it, it's not one long, flat straight road. But there's not a lot of tension, either. It's comfortable. Enjoyable.

I thought I was going to like this book. I wanted to like this book. I didn't hate this book, but the characters and their dialogue made me sigh with frustration. Josh and his partner of two years go on a weekend trip to St. Louis. His partner, who is a class-A jerk, leaves Josh in St. Louis over some minor relationship infraction. That's when Josh meets Ziggy, and Ziggy is the most laid-back, easy-going, non-judgemental person in the entire world, but he's straight, or so Josh thinks. But he's ...more

Oh dear, I hate to give up on a book but this was beyond believable and was juvenile. On what planet does a guy (allegedly 'straight') invite anyone (in this case, a gay man) to live with them and share a tiny one room apartment (and tiny bed!) based on a chance meeting. Not only do they seem to be comfortable sleeping naked and wrapped around each other but every time they're horny (which is a lot!) they decide to get naked, stare at each others junk and watch each other 'get off'. They get ...more

I love this book even though it’s weird. Weird in a very good way.

It’s a cross between self-help book, a story about friends, and an M/M romance. Give it a chance, you will probably like it.

Warning – it contains a lot of common sense, and some sex (M/F and M/M) and some drugs (pot, alcohol).

It was okay, but I wouldn't recommend it. I was able to finish it, but I found it lacking a plot and it was quite home spun philosophical. And it contained A LOT of sex, that was irrelevant for the story!

Excerpts from reader-posted Amazon reviews of Try Anything Twice:

"Quirky, charming and sexy....the explicit bits are very well done....the two heroes are sweet, charming and irresistible....the sexual relationship between them is an integral part of a journey of mutual and self-discovery."

"Read more than my share of gay erotica in my time and Josh Jango's book rates highly. Hard to believe such a
