Description: It's not easy being a gay man in Utah, but it's even more difficult when you're young and overweight. Jay has never fit in with the general "club culture" and he knows he'd never be attractive enough to catch a one-night stand, much less a boyfriend. Losing himself in books and school alleviates his loneliness, and he doesn't waste time dreaming about what he can't have. Until he meets the new director of the GLBT Center on campus and promptly falls in love--against all common sense and logic.
Hoping to catch a few glimpses of Stephen outside of the Center, Jay decides to start working out at the university gym. The plan turns out to be too successful as Stephen volunteers to be his workout buddy, then invites Jay out to lunch, and finally, kisses him. Jay wants Stephen more than anything, but he can't bring himself to trust Stephen's intentions. Not when he knows he's disgusting and Stephen is so perfect...

So are you just getting started?"
"I was about to call it good for the day, actually." Jay made a show of checking his watch. "Man, has it been forty-five minutes already? I guess time flies when you're having fun. You?"
"I'm on the way to the track for a couple laps to cool down. Do you want come with? I usually don't feel like I'm done unless I have a good run."
Just the image of himself chasing Stephen around the track was almost too much to bear. He'd be doubled over in pain after half a lap, and Stephen would leave him behind with a disgusted shake of his head.
"Maybe next time. I've got an appointment at six. So I should just hit the showers."
"Yeah. Hey, I'll see you tomorrow."
"Yep. Have a good night."
Jay managed to keep from collapsing until Stephen was several feet away, though the weakness in his legs had nothing to do with his ill-advised attempt to ride the damned bike. Stephen was gorgeous in an impossible sort of way, more handsome than pretty, his body toned, his eyes the deepest shade of blue. Jay had fallen in love with him the moment they met, knowing it was shallow to be in love with somebody just because they were the fairest in all the land, but not caring. Stephen was also funny and intelligent, quick witted and warm-hearted. In the month since the semester started and Stephen began working as the GLBT Center director, Jay's feelings had only grown stronger, until he realized, much to his horror, that he really did love Stephen.
He always fell for the ones he couldn't have. It was a sickness with him.
