Guess Who's Coming Out?
Noah Abraham is back in New York tending to his ailing father while dealing with his writer's block on a book about gay congressional staffers. What he needs is a break, and a night out with his stepmother, Tricia--the most down-to-earth Trophy Wife on Park Avenue--is just the thing, especially when she introduces Noah to the handsome Bart Gustafson. Bart is as charming, personable, and laid back as Noah is intense. He's also the personal assistant to former film and television star Quinn Scott. The macho stud has been living in exile for years since running away with one of his ex-wife's back-up dancers. . .a male back-up dancer. And just like that, Noah's writing block is cured.
The Full, Shocking Story!
Getting a sizzling, tell-all book out of Quinn won't be boring--or easy. The 72-year-old is profane, hard-drinking, and hard of hearing, but he's got plenty of dish on Hollywood, especially its very deep closets. He and his longtime lover are ready to talk. The only topics that are off-limits for Quinn are his son, heartthrob actor Quinn, Jr., and his marriage to 1960's wholesome screen queen, Kitty Randolph. The girl once known for her "sweetness" has spent the last forty years morphing from girl-next-door to scary, I'm-not-mad-at-you-I'm-mad-at-the-dirt Hollywood mogul. She owns that town, and she's not about to let her ex-husband spill secrets that will embarrass her and threaten the image she's built. And if Noah is in her scenery-chewing way, he better grow some claws. . .jungle red.
Exclusive! Unbelievable! And Very, Very Hot. . . Now, in an outrageous La-La-Land of come-ons, coming outs, and tell-alls, where everyone's got something to hide and plenty to divulge, Noah and Bart are riding fame's heady, strange wave and trying not to get drowned in the process. It's going to take every bit of cunning they've got, because when the stars come out, someone's going to take a fall. . .
