In this hilariously on-target romantic comedy, four gay friends try all the right moves - and too many wrong ones - in their search for true love, only to discover it in the most unexpected places... Carson St. John is the workaholic ediror-in-chief of Throb magazine, the gay man's answer to Cosmo and essential reading in gyms from the Village to the Hamptons, thanks to Carson's brilliant story ideas. But while Carson inspires gay men everwhere to live their sex-and-the-city lives, his own romances have been as deep and meaningful as a roomful of male models. Secretly he wishes it were possible to just pick the perfect man from a stack... or maybe it can be. Hitting on a gimmick that's sure to make him the toast of the Manhattan publishing set - Boyfriend Material Trading Cards - Carson knows he's found the answer to evey gay man's fantasy, a chance to customer order Mr. Boyfriend without all those longing glances at bars, awkward questions over trendy dinners, messy heartbreaks at the other end. It's a plan that can't lose. Now, the city's hottest quesionnaire is leading Carson and his three best friends on a riotous quest of their own, where everything they ever thought they wanted in a man is about to be put to the test. From outrageous art galleries to weird camping trips, tabloid outings to the occasional shopping spress, they're comparing notes on what went wrong, where they're headed, and how on earth - not to mention in Chelsea - they can ever hope to find true love. With his heart unguarded for the first time in years, Carson finds that his simple story idea unlocks a secret yearning of his own, one that leads him to a choice so utterly real and unexpected that nothing will ever be the same again...
