A sensuous, exhilarating ride through romance that takes an intimate look into the passions and pitfalls of modern urban life. Trey, Vince, and Erika are best friends -- all single -- who live in Washington D. C. and are on the lookout for love. Blessed with intelligence, successful careers, and good looks, one would think the dating scene would be a snap for them. However, despite their charm, wit, and acheivements, none of their diverse approaches to the dating game are getting results. In The Mating Game, Jonathan Luckett examines the lives of these three friends who seem to have it all -- except someone to share it with. Trey is an often arrogant ladies' man with a quick tongue and dapper good looks. His friend and alter ego Vince is the ruggedly handsome, hopelessly romantic Renaissance man who is searching high and low for his ideal mate. And then there is the confidant, beautiful, no-nonsense Erika, who thinks she has found the man of her dreams, only to find out the opposite. However, when two mysterious women enter the scene, their lives -- and their friendships -- are turned upside down. From the streets of Washington and New York to the steamy French Quarter of New Orleans, Trey, Vince, and Erika leave a trail of pandemonium in their wake as they search for love, sometimes in all the wrong places.
