In 2005, Dan Bucatinsky and his partner, Don Roos, found themselves in an L.A. delivery room, decked out in disposable scrubs from shower cap to booties, to welcome their adopted baby girl – launching their frantic yet memorable adventures into fatherhood. Two and a half years later, the same birth mother – a heroically generous, pack-a-day teen with a passion for Bridezilla marathons and Mountain Dew – delivered a son into the couple’s arms. In Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight?, Bucatinsky moves deftly from sidesplitting stories about where kids put their fingers to the realization that his athletic son might just grow up to be straight and finally to a reflection on losing his own father just as he’s becoming one. Bucatinsky’s soul-baring and honest stories tap into that all-encompassing, and very human, hunger to be a parent – and the life-changing and often ridiculous road to getting there.

Filled with humor, and plenty of amusing and heartwarming anecdotes alike, this was a terrific listen.

I’ve been a fan of Dan Bucatinsky for a while (still mad about Scandal – James Novak was a favored character!) and Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight?: Confessions of a Gay Dad was simply delightful and absolutely made better by Bucatinsky narrating it personally.

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I’m happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand.
I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I’m in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA!

My biggest no-no’s are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.

A sampling of my “Favorite M/M” stories:
