In the Apartment Living Novel:
Tyler Volkov is a bi-sexual goofball, with too much freedom, and not enough responsibility.
All this changes when his sixteen-year-old friend, Jesse, asks to come with Tyler when he moves to New York. Unable to turn away his friend, he takes Jesse with him, and takes on a second job, working from his computer, while still pursuing interior design.
Soon he finds himself as a scatterbrained older brother, trying to make it in the big city, balancing his fragile ego and tentative luck with women with his relationship with Jesse.
