A Man's World Novel

Can four guys find love in New York City?

Kevin left behind a chance at the NBA to coach delinquents, but his toughest assignment is finding a girl who won't make his mama's church group fall into praying mode. . .A teacher and a poet, Antoine can make a sister feel beautiful--or want to beat him with a blow dryer. . .Tyrone has talent, attitude, and a crush on his boss's wife. . .And Maurice is all that, if that means rude, arrogant, and dishonest.

Kevin's got the looks. Antoine's got heart and soul. Tyrone's got the skills. And Maurice has player moves. They got it all, except for the one thing that matters most--the love of a good woman. What they find when they try a dating service is a riotous trip through religious freaks, hootchie mamas, chicken heads, gold diggers, and some serious Brides of Funkenstein. One thing's for certain--when you play the game of love, you've got to be ready for anything.

From Booklist:

Weber considers the travails of searching for love in New York's African American community from a male perspective through the experiences of a quartet of coworkers at a high school in Queens. When Kevin, a 23-year-old teacher who blew his chance in the NBA, tells Antoine, a 36-year-old English teacher and poet, and Tyrone, a 30-year-old ex-gang member turned security guard, about a phone dating service he's joined, his friends make fun of him, but the laugh is on them when they see Kevin's gorgeous date. So Tyrone, a self-described "player" looking for a little action, gives it a try, as does Antoine, who seeks someone to share his poetry. Even the unsavory school principal gets in the act after finding the dating service phone number on the gym floor. Each man grows through his encounters with women, and Weber goes beyond the usual dating cliches in this funny, affectionate, and stirring romance aimed at convincing readers that although the road to true love is rocky, it's still worth traversing.
