This relatable novel, set in Savannah, Georgia, is about what happens AFTER you couple up: finding couple friends. Dinners, drinks, BBQs, group vacations, and celebrating an umpteenth number of birthdays, promotions, weddings...the list of obligations can mount quickly, filling up every weekend.

The novel's main characters and couple, Kieran and Tyler, take turns recounting in first person their horrific and hilarious encounters with a group of couple friends that threatens to derail their relationship at every turn.

Set during that period between post-college and pre-baby, these couples party together like their still undergrads while facing grown-up challenges such as first jobs, first homes, and living in a new city.
