Recently dumped and now unemployed, Conrad applies for, and is accepted. to take part in a reality show. He has no idea what the show is going to be about, even after the intense questionnaire. When Conrad meets the other five men who will be on the show with him, he begins to wonder just what he’s gotten himself into.

Got Men? is a play on the various reality shows on television today. The premise behind the show is simple, but also very destructive. Six single gay men are placed in a home that is totally wired for sound, as well as cameras, in hopes that the men, all deeply in the closet, will out themselves in front of the whole world. Unfortunately for the men, they don’t know that.

The author has the ability to pull her readers in, from the beginning, and as each of the six men are introduced, you can’t help but pick your favorites. While the main characters in Got Men? are Conrad and Sonny, each of the remaining men also played strong roles. The reader will find this story full of light hearted moments, as well as unbelievably tough ones. There were many times when I wanted to clobber the producers of this show for their callous disregard for the men’s lives. Yes, I know this is just a fictional story but the producers irked me that much. A few characters from past stories, pop their heads in to say hi in ways that left the men hot and bothered and are sure to leave the reader chuckling.

Like many of G. A. Hauser’s stories this is one I will read again.
