The Guardian Angel of South Beach is a well-written and charming story that at first glance appears to be a light and easy-going read full of steamy sexual encounters. But continue reading and you’ll soon realize that Mr. Plakcy has cleverly written a story that encompasses all of the above while at the same time imparting a tale that, through a magical realist touch, explores such themes as the quest for beauty and perfection within not only gay culture but society as a whole through Leo’s jour

I didn't like this one nearly as much as some of Plakcy's other work. Character gets a bottle of magic pills, and goes from cute but dumpy to buff and hung. And then he has sex with a bunch of random guys until he finally hooks up with the cute, sweet guy who was under his nose the whole time.
