Chase Taylor Hackett was raised on a farm in the Midwest – far from his current home in New York City. His first novel—WHERE DO I START?— was published by Kensington Books.
While working on that book, he realized he had a character who was a total jerk, and he wondered what would happen if the jerk met a guy who had zero tolerance for jerks.

AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW… he’d written another novel, also available from Kensington, and pretty much everywhere else.

Chase lives in Manhattan with his partner Travis.

I had no idea if I could actually do that, but 261 pages later, ta-da!, I did and it's called WHERE DO I START?
With AND THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW..., I had a character who was a total asshole, and I wondered what would happen if he met someone with no patience for assholinity. Assholedness. Something like that. You pick.
I wasn't thinking it at the time, but looking back, both books would seem to be redemption stories. Not sure what that says about me as a person. Not sure I want to know either.

You kids have any bright suggestions for a good example of a book that would fall into the 'fake-boyfriend' category? Gay only, please.

Any thoughts?

I'm just dipping my toe in the world of crime/mysteries, but this seemed like a very talky book. They talk about the evidence instead of going to find it. There's the usual incompetent police inspector--but he's off-stage, and talked about.

I wanted to marry this book.

This is a genuinely funny, marvelous and silly romantic comedy that made me care about the guys at the center of it, at the same time as I was laughing out loud at them. Hall took the goofiness of a fake-boyfriend story,
