The last thing fitness guru Heathcliff Stone needs is a babysitter, mainly because the one thing he hates more than his name - courtesy of his mom who, to this day, continues to be a Brontë obsessed reader - is for someone to try to control him.
When the most important company endorsing him sends over a preppy looking guy to keep him on a tight leash, his knee jerk reaction is to send the yuppie packing.
Yet, there is something that stops him from putting the figurative boot in the guy’s ass. Aidan Spark is exactly what the doctor ordered.

Cory read tons about coming out, that one friend who's "more", and those stupid "He's straight, but can I turn him gay?" posts.

All he had to do was risk telling Elliot he was gay and how he felt about him. Bam! Love!

Cory might just stay in the closet and keep his best friend instead.
