Pen Lupo is sick and tired of hiding who she is. On the outside, Pen is popular, quiet, and deferential to her boyfriend. On the inside, however, Pen is honest, opinionated–and not quite sure that she’s like other girls. Do they have urges like she does?

His classmates may consider him a nerd, but Benedict Pendleton knows he’s destined for great things. All he has to do is find a worthy girlfriend, and his social station will be secured. Sure, Benedict is different–but that’s what he likes about himself.

When fate intervenes, both Pen and Benedict end up at the same vacation resort for winter break. Despite their differences, the two are drawn together. But is there such a thing as happily ever after for a nympho and a nerd?

In this story, the second debut of B.T. Gottfred, I know the book will be good as I read the synopsis and I can’t totally wait to release and have it in my hands. It is actually pretty awesome story that surrounds the two with their different worlds which I totally fall in love with the characters. Even though there are some words in the book that is not appropriate for the young readers but you will laugh, irritated and fall in love with them. Mixed emotions coming right up for this book. It is really good.

The nerdy, Benedict, he is totally the nerdiest kid I know. He vision perfection about his life since all he knew that he wants to have a girlfriend and he’s having a hard time to find one. The dirty, Penelope, she’s like can’t get enough without sex, as particularly describe at the title. So both of them have different perspective of love. Both of them went a vacation and they didn’t know at the end that is the love that they draw to them together and it is pretty cheesy.

I am totally glad that I read this book, it’s like how desperate you are, how you will describe about your future, or how will you choose you who love, not all the things you want in life will be yours. You have to face a lot of challenges and not only that along the way in your journey you will found the girl that is really meant for you and will understand you even though you have a lot crazy and horny flaws. They will accept and both of you will face about tomorrow.

 And… yeah… I’m crazy but can pretend really, really well I’m not. Sort of what I feel about everybody.Anyway, here’s some stuff I’ve done to help me feign sanity:

Wrote and directed the play, “Women Are Crazy Because Men Are A**holes” that has played over four years in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and San Diego. Made its Off Broadway premiere at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre. Los Angeles Times said: “Seldom have I been a part of a more enthusiastic and vocal audience. Brad T Gottfred’s play about young couples stumbling through the minefield of codependency taps a universal nerve.”

Wrote, directed, and executive produced the feature film “The Movie Hero” which played at over 20 film festivals worldwide, winning numerous awards including the Audience Award at the Austin Film Festival.

My first play, “Marry, F**K, Or Kill” was called “a guilty pleasure for veterans of the single life” by the Los Angeles Times. It went on to an Off Broadway premiere in the fall of 2011.

Wrote and direct the digital series “The Boonies” that will premiere on GO90/ Rated Red in 2017. My first series “Sex and Love Conspire to Destroy the World” was released by MyDamnChannel in 2013.
