Dante Moretti has a big problem. His acting career has hit the skids and he's desperate to land the lead role in the next Hollywood blockbuster. It’s his last chance to get back on the superstar track.

But, his personal life is a train wreck. No sane director will work with him any longer. Solution? Bribe his best friend and former co-star, Chris Parker to play the role of his long-term boyfriend. Showing the world he’s in a committed relationship will hopefully convince casting agents he’s reformed, stable and trustworthy.

Even if it’s a lie.

What Dante doesn’t count on is the public’s reaction to the announcement that Chris and he are a couple…and his own feelings for Chris spiraling out of control.

Under the merciless cameras of the paparazzi, Dante is forced to choose--his leading man status or the man he thought was just his best friend. Who ever thought that pretending to be in love would be this hard?

Suck This, Neil Patrick Harris by H.L. Holston and Eleanor Bruce is a funny modern romance I just could not stop reading.  Dante is the tabloid queen of his day. He manages to break more hearts in Hollywood. He has a bad reputation and now no director will touch him.  Well he has a solution. He has to be in a stable relationship and prove he is reliable.  Who does he choose to do this with but his best friend Chris. Bonus Chris also lives with him. So he is sure everyone will buy the rouse.
Chris is straight. He has dabbled with guys before so maybe he is more bisexual than he thinks. But still having the shallow Dante want to be his boyfriend. He is sure this is going to end badly.
When you have someone as sweet and kind hearted as Chris a former child star from the Disney channel and someone as jaded as Dante together the sparks do fly.  Both men find themselves changing. And for Dante it is a change for the better. Love looks really good on him.  
I liked the progression from friendship to lovers and how what started out as something to fool everyone turns out into the real deal.   When you want a romance that will leave you smiling and believing in true love this is the one to pick up.
