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.

Omg, can I just start off saying that you guys have got to read this book! It is LOL hilarious. Some of the stuff the happens in it is UNREAL. I found myself looking at my kindle going 'no frigging way dud that just happen' while tears where rolling down my face with laughter.
This book surrounds five mid to late twenty's men. Showing how they met, and the story of how they got to that point. It is back in the year 2000-01. With some time before hand from each blokes perspective. This book shows them coming together and forming one unit. There pose as they like to call it. Five blokes taking on the big city known as New York. On the prowl enjoying the single life before they settle down. But who they get to this point is the funny bit. And there are bits you won't be able to contain your laughter!
This book is not my normal read. I went outside the box with this. And I am so glad I did. The book been from five men's eyes was SO different. It was actually quiet refreshing. It was that good that there better be a book two or I may have to stalk the author. Just a little bit.... Soooooo on to the book at hand......
The five men we have are Evan, Narc, Trevor, Carlos and Sammy.
The book starts off with Evan though. Now Evan goes through something no man should. He not only gets fired, but then the following day gets dumped by his girlfriend......Via email. YES that's right I said email. Talk about crashing and burning. Things can't get worse though right? WRONG. He taught that before he was held up at blow point. I'm not even gonna get into what that is because I'm still trying to get my head around that one! LOL He seems like the main Character of the book even though the others are in it just as much. Maybe that's just my thinking? You'll see when reading it I suppose.
Poor Evan though has problems. He's kinda in love with Delia Nakova. Who's she I hear you asking? Well a famous actress no less! He is obsessed with her after he has more then a few run in's with her. And these run in's where not life changing. Birds didn't sing and rainbows didn't magically appear. Well not for her anyways. The run ins are actually quiet embarrassing. BUT for Evan none of that matters. He just can't get her out of his head. Love at first meeting is what it's like. And with his been a writer, wanting to be one anyway he gets this plan is his head to win her.....Can You see where I'm going with this......??
BUT that's just Evan. ONE down four to go. I'll give you the run down....
Narc is Asian/American who becomes a lawyer. Who's addicted to porn. God honest truth. He will watch it anywhere and everywhere. And has an awful habit of leaving it Evan finds out more then once. He's been a lawyer to please his parents. He doesn't want this but he does it for them not wanting to let them down. But life is catching up with his until it has him in its grasp. So he's left with some choices to make.
Trevor is very suave. He is British and VERY bloody tall. He has rules for his dating. He need's a girl over 6 foot. Just like him, so as you can imagine he's limited in that department. Then he gets himself a girl. Tall, beautiful and has everything he's been looking for. Or that's what he thinks. She may actually have more then he has asked for.....
Carlos is the Latin lover of the group. He is fabulous looking. Picture movie star good looking. BUT he's the virgin of the group. And he also has BAD OCD when it comes to germs. Seriously he need's help. So living in the big germy New York city should be a hoot and a half for him :D
And finally we get to Sammy. The Jew of the group. God How I loved him! He is my next favourite after Evan :) He's small, pudgy and going bald since he can remember. So no wonder is SQ is so low(You'll soon learn what that is) He has a life plan. Play the field(when he can find girls)and start looking for wife material at the age of 28 and up. But you know life NEVER goes how you want it to. His bits in the book are outrageous! Throw in a few knock backs, a mail box conversation, a meowing vagina and hitting the jackpot and you get Sammy in all his glory!
I would urge everyone to read 'Sex In The Title'. Hell even give it to a friend or family member for Christmas. This book will cheer you right up. No matter what. But maybe read it alone. After the looks I got at the LOL bit's it's probably best ;)

Zack Love graduated from Harvard College, where he tried to create a bachelor’s degree in Women. With the bachelor portion of that degree in hand, he settled in New York City but – to afford renting his bed-sized studio – found himself flirting mostly with a computer screen and stacks of documents. Determined not to die a corporate drone, Zack decided to sacrifice sleep for screenwriting, an active social life, and Internet startups offering temporary billion-dollar fantasies.
To feed his steady diet of NYC nightlife, he regularly crashed VIP parties in the early 2000s and twice bumped into his burgeoning crush, a Hollywood starlet. But – much to Zack’s surprise – neither of those awkward conversations led to marriage with the A-list actress. Zack eventually consoled himself by imagining fiascoes far worse than those involving his celebrity crush. In the process, he dreamed up a motley gang of five men inspired by some of his college friends and quirky work colleagues. And thus was born Sex in the Title. But the novel is not autobiographical: Zack never had his third leg attacked by any mammal (nor by any plant, for that matter). In fact, keeping his member safe has been one of Zack’s lifelong goals – and one of the few that he’s managed to accomplish.
“So what’s the body count?”
“The body count?”
“You know: how many women have you slept with in your twenty-nine years?”
Evan wasn’t sure whether to overstate the number to look sexually impressive to a soft porn star, or whether to understate the number to look less promiscuous and more like the responsible, clean cut, solid-boyfriend type. Since he still hadn’t quite figured out what Tina was looking for or who she really was, he decided just to tell the truth.
“I’ve been with about sixty-seven women.”
“What do you mean ‘about sixty-seven?’ You say ‘about sixty’ or ‘about seventy.’ But not ‘about sixty-seven.’ You’re obviously keeping track.” Tina looked amused at another opportunity to toy with Evan.
“All right. You got me,” Evan conceded. “I’ve been with precisely sixty-seven women.”
“Unless, of course, you said ‘about’ because the total depends on how you define ‘being with a woman.’ For example, if you just got a blowjob and nothing else then maybe you don’t count that.”
“OK. To be more precise, I’ve had sexual intercourse with sixty-seven women.”
“All right, so then you’ve probably been with many more women than sixty-seven?”
“Yeah. But I don’t keep track of those.” Evan suddenly wondered why he didn’t bother to keep track of anything but consummation.
“I see…So when did you get started on these sixty-seven women?”
“You mean, how old was I when I lost my virginity?”
“So you’ve slept with sixty-seven women in just nine years.”
“Well, actually I’ve had six serious relationships that together took up about two years.”
“Serious? Let’s see…Six serious relationships in two years…So each one lasted an average of four months. You call that serious?”
“Well, it was an intense four months. And I wasn’t seeing anyone else. You know, that’s kind of a big deal in New York,” he added ironically. “Dating someone exclusively for four months in New York is like four years in Anchorage.”
Tina chuckled at Evan’s joke. “All right, so not counting the serious relationships, you’ve slept with...” She crunched some numbers in her head. “You’ve slept with sixty-one women in just seven years…That’s an average of almost nine per year…A new woman every forty days.” Tina seemed impressed, which suddenly made Evan feel rather promiscuous.
