Based on the film of the same name, Mulligans is a novel about a poignant family drama with a twist. Tyler, a straight college jock, brings his best friend Chase home to stay with his family for summer vacation. The Davidson family welcomes Chase with open arms, but as the summer progresses, so does an unexpected attraction. Stacey, Tyler's mom, tries to hold on to her family while Tyler's dad, Nathan, struggles with his long-suppressed sexuality.

First off this is not a MM romance book. It is a story about coming out and coming to grips with your choices and the consequences thereof. There is no HEA, but there is LEA (life ever after). This is the story of two men, Chase and Nathan and their struggles with coming to terms with who they are and the choices they have made. I guess there is a movie and the book is based on the movie, but with a better ending. Since I haven’t seen the movie, I don’t know. But I did enjoy the book. It was gut wrenching in some places because of the family dynamics involved, but very realistic and well told. You may not feel “good” after hearing Mr. David’s excellent narration (he is also the author), but you will be hopeful and won’t be sorry you listened. I really enjoyed this and I didn’t think I would.
