Darren Lewis is a twenty-two year old virgin, and when he ventures out to a gay bar for the first time after college graduation, he isn't looking for a hookup. He wants the boy of his dreams; one of the forever variety. His plans for that, however, come to a halt the moment he locks eyes with the most gorgeous guy on the dance floor, named Evan. Evan sweeps him into a world of whiskey and sex, showing him pleasure with no strings attached and the constant promise of a next time. After a whirlwind month of weekend hookups in the back seat of his car and bathroom stalls, Darren finds himself too besotted with his wayward Romeo and is heartbroken when Evan stops showing up at their usual bar. A month passes and, while still dreaming of Evan's talented hands and mouth, Darren tries to move on. When Evan appears at the bar one random night, jealousy spurs Darren to attempt a hookup with a guy whose name he doesn't know.
