Tyler's tales of looking for love and answers in Atlanta will remind many of Sex and the City, except this is very well-written. Each "tail" is filled with sensitivity, vulnerability, heart, and lots of humor. I knew I was in for a good time when I laughed out loud only two pages in. Tyler does a wonderful job of weaving his touching stories of growing up a gay Mormon child in Indiana with his escapades in Atlanta, looking for "the one." Gay or straight, everyone can relate to the bad first dates (and second, and third...), the heartaches, and the light and fluffy feelings that come with starting a new relationship when you're single. It was an enjoyable read, watching Tyler learn valuable lessons in love and who he is.

I picked this up on my Kindle expecting some "Sex In the City"-lite missives of gay New York City. Well these are the stories of the author from his life in Indiana and Atlanta - neither of which is on my list of favorite places to go. Tyler does nothing to glamorize his search for success, love and friendship amid bad dates, awful jobs, and loopy friends. These vignettes describe a gay scene that, yes, IS concerned with amazing times, fabulous cocktails and enigmatic fashionista dress codes; but also struggles with building and maintaining family (both biological and chosen), doing productive and meaningful work, and a social circle that includes a diverse blend of genders, races and drug choices. Tyler doesn't shy away from the awkward moments - he runs into them full steam, allowing the reader an unapologetic glimpse into his humor, conflicts and odd romances.

The strongest parts of the book, for me, are when Tyler centers on his family. It adds a pleasant depth to the narrative - and gives us some insight into what led the author into his misadventures in the ATL.

Is this a perfect collection? Not at all. As a first book, it is an admirable foray into the life and times of a small town gay guy who moves to the "Big City" of Atlanta (ironically, a city once described as a small town's idea of a big city). When one considers that these were originally blog entries, the author's voice emerges as particularly clear. I wished for a stronger editing hand at times to tie the collection into a more cohesive whole. But as a book that I read on my subway commute, I burst out laughing at several moments - what more could one want? "Your boyfriend and other guys I've kissed" brings us into Tyler's world - and it's one I'd like to return to. Even if I refrain from introducing him to MY boyfriend.

This book is a funny and captivating read from front to back! I've been a fan of the Totally Tyler blog and this book definitely doesn't disappoint! I always compare this to a gay "Sex in the City" but with a whole lot more wit. This book is a must read if you are in need of a laugh or want to make sure your not the only one who has had dating stories gone awry! This book will make you 'LOL' from page to page and also thinking more seriously about underlying life lessons we learn from being adults and attempting this crazy world of dating.

I loved this book from start to finish. Living in Atlanta, I know so many of the place that he speaks on. I can't say I have been through every situation he has, but I can relate on so many different levels. I had so many "ah ha" moments reading this. The book is an easy read and it keeps you interested the entire time. I can not wait for the follow up. Great job Tyler!

I discovered Tyler on twitter, through a random RT that led to his blog, and was instantly hooked. His writing is so witty and so easy to relate to. I was so excited to get my hands on this book- and I was not disappointed--- my only disappointment was that it ended.... I want more! At times I laughed so hard I almost cried, and , other times, tried not to cry at his heartbreak and disappointment . I tore through this book as if he were sitting next to me telling me stories over cocktails, as if he were my best friend, just pouring out his heart to me. A couple times I thought .. Oh wow I dated that jerk too! And that was really the hook--- I'm a straight woman, but this book spoke volumes to me---the anticipation & hope & then the disappointments... Hoping that this guy might actually be THE guy...Ugh, been there!! However, I could have never woven it into the fantastic collection of "tails" that he did . Tyler is a fantastic writer, just so very talented. Gay, straight, whatever... If you didn't find your soulmate on the first try.. If you have ever had your heart broken...read this book !
And please Tyler...more !!!!

Tyler has an amazing way with words. Whether relaying an emotional story or a laugh-inducing one (or quite often both), he knows how to draw readers in and leave them wanting more! I can't wait to read more installments in the series!!

have been reading tyler's blogs since... 2006 or so, i believe, and was very excited to see him come out with a book... can't wait for the next. love the flow of the "tails" - how he can divert your attention from the subject for a short amount of time with a side story and then take you right back in, somehow tying everything together. any adult should be able to relate to tyler, no matter the sex or sexuality of the individual.
this book had me both laughing and getting teary eyed, and brought back many memories of some of my old dating experiences.
*sigh* ... i have a crush on you, tyler. and i wish i was a gay male living in NY. i'd totally take you out : ).

i'm also really liking how people are publishing their blogs into books (given they have a talent for writing, like tyler). i can go months without reading a novel sometimes, but will forever be loyal to the blogs i follow on a nearly daily basis.
