In his bittersweet novel Still Counting (Wild Rose Press, 2016), author Phil Fragasso adds complication to the roller-coaster ride of young love in the 21st century. “As much as straight guys might fantasise about threesomes and enjoy watching lesbian porn,” explains Fragasso, “male insecurities reign supreme when confronted with a strong woman who knows her way around both the male and female anatomies.”
Adam and Nina Morales share an immediate and powerful attraction. Nina sees life as a thousand shades of grey, while Adam tends towards black-and-white. He wants to move fast; she needs time. Nina sees her past liaisons with women as immaterial to their relationship, while her disclosure drives Adam to a state of irrational jealousy. He doesn’t know how he could compete with a woman; and his suspicions – which Nina views as hypocritical – lead them both to make decisions they may live to regret.
Phil Fragasso is the author of several novels and nonfiction books and writes regularly for the Huffington Post (including the recent “Bisexuality and Promiscuity In Fact and Fiction”). He is an adjunct professor at Boston College and founded the website www.ChickLitForGuys.com.
