What if you took the best-selling male action hero and wrote him as the female protagonist in a chick-lit novel?
Thanks to his author, Pat Rock has toppled dictators, foiled train robberies in the Wild West, prevented alien invasions, and even solved the assassination of JFK. Now, thanks to his author’s wife, Pat will become Patty Cakes and have to face even bigger challenges. Bridal showers, PMS, and sitting to pee.
Pat won’t stand (or sit) for it. Instead of living a torrid romance with Ralph the bus driver, Pat rebels and steers the novel in a new direction. Enter the insidious plot.
Pat discovers that Maggie is having an affair with her twin sister’s fiancé. It gets worse. This fiancé is behind the mysterious death of Maggie’s husband. It gets worse. Madison (the other twin) planned that death. It gets worse…
Murder, fraud, and infidelity. Not your normal chick-lit tale. If Pat Rock were himself, he’d have this wrapped up by the end of the first chapter. But, he is not himself. He has a new author and a new persona. Instead of winning the day and getting the girl, he finds himself handcuffed to a pole and at the wrong end of a gun. Can the psyches of Pat and Patty work together to save their hides? Will Pat gain a newfound respect for women? Will he ever be able to stand to pee again?
