Wanna-Be's by Mark Connelly **Review**


With his new girlfriend – a soccer mom with a taste for bondage – urging him to “go condo,” failed screenwriter Winfield Payton needs cash. Accepting a job offer from a college friend, he becomes the lone white employee of a black S&L. As the firm’s token white, he poses as a Mafioso to intimidate skittish investors and woos a wealthy cougar to keep the firm afloat. Figure-skating between the worlds of white and black, gay and straight, male and female, Jew and Gentile, Yuppie and militant, Payton flies higher and higher until the inevitable crash. . .

This story is so funny. It made me laugh and feel bad for Winfield. The poor guy can't seem to catch a break. This made me wonder if he was just bad on hs luck or if he kept making wrong turns in his life that led to unfortunate happenings for him. Either way, I loved that this book was edgy yet hilarious and not PC which was a breathe of fresh air. This is an easy read that anyone is sure to enjoy. 

I do recommend this read! 
However, if you do not agree with non-PC, this is not for the faint of heart. 

I  received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
