About the author:
Zack Love graduated from Harvard College, where he studied mostly literature, psychology, philosophy, and film. After college, he moved to New York City and took a corporate consulting job that had absolutely nothing to do with his studies. The attacks of September 11, 2001 inspired him to write a novella titled "The Doorman," and heightened his interest in the Middle East. A decade later, that interest extended to the Syrian Civil war, which provided the backdrop for his latest work. In late 2013, Zack began releasing his unpublished works of fiction and he is now a full-time author. Zack has published comedy, psychological and philosophical fiction, and romance. He enjoys confining himself to one genre about as much as he likes trying to sum up his existence in one paragraph.
Sex in the Title
a Comedy about Dating, Sex, and Romance in NYC (back when phones weren't so smart)
Mr. Zack Love
OVERVIEW: A male "Sex and the City" full of sexy laughs, romance, and misadventures.
New York City, May 2000. The Internet bubble has burst, and Evan's boss fires him with an email. The next day, his girlfriend dumps him, also via email. Afraid to check any more emails, Evan desperately seeks a rebound romance but the catastrophes that ensue go from bad to hilariously worse. Fortunately, Evan meets someone whose legendary disasters with females eclipse even his own.
To reverse their fortunes, they recruit their friends into a group of five guys who take on Manhattan in pursuit of dates, sex, and adventure. With musings about life, relationships, and human psychology, this quintessential New York story about the search for happiness follows five men on their comical paths to trouble, self-discovery, and love.

"the funniest book I [have] read in a long time...Never before have I had so much fun with 5 totally clueless but completely lovable guys"

"A wickedly brilliant story [that] reminded me of the grand influence and power of the written word.

"...spans several genres and does it with such cleverness, you cannot help but be impressed...one of my all-time favorite reads."
