"Absurdly charming and outrageously irreverent, The Gay Best Friend is a goddamn delight from start to finish. Brimming with cheeky wit, breathtaking tenderness, and just enough chaotic messiness to have me screaming every other page, the term "beach read" was invented for a book like this. Nicolas DiDomizio is one of the funniest authors in the game, and I'll read anything he writes." -- Mazey Eddings, author of The Plus One
"Equal parts hilarious and heart-wrenching, The Gay Best Friend is not to be missed. It explores the complexities of love, friendship, and our capacity for forgiveness with sharp, emotional detail. In Dom, DiDomizio has created an unforgettable character to root for and relate to. I loved every page." -- Annette Christie, author of The Rehearsals
"Filled with charm, hilarity, sweetness and swoon, The Gay Best Friend is an absolute MUST-READ. DiDomizio deftly creates characters that are as lovable as they are deliciously-flawed, and I am officially obsessed with this book." -- Lynn Painter, New York Times bestselling author of Mr. Wrong Number and The Love Wager
"Outrageously witty and incisive! THE GAY BEST FRIEND captures all the kinetic energy of a 90s Julia Roberts film and queers it. A perfect summer read that reminds us: putting yourself first should never be a second thought." -- Timothy Janovsky, author of Never Been Kissed
"The Gay Best Friend is fun, frothy, and full of feels. With characters so messy they seem like people you've known your entire life--you know, the ones you simultaneously want to shake some sense into and hug the stuffing out of--it's the perfect beach read." -- Xio Axelrod, USA Today Bestselling Author
"The Gay Best Friend tugged at my heartstrings and tickled my soul in equal measure. With dialogue that zings and relatable characters you can't help but root for, DiDomizio has created something sparkling and wonderful." -- Robin Lefler, author of Reasonable Adults
"DiDomizio relays the realistically messy road many of us travel to reach a happily-ever-after while at the same time underscoring the true value of living life authentically."" -- Booklist
"Sure to have readers laughing, crying, and cheering on the protagonist to the very last page. Fans of works by Alexis Hall, Casey McQuiston, Alison Cochrun, and Alice Oseman will enjoy." -- Library Journal
