HE'S THE ONE
by Timothy James Beck
Something's gotta give for Adam Wilson. The hunky, sweet Midwestern entrepreneur might have a dream job creating web sites for artists, a renovated Wisconsin farmhouse, and a mom who organizes bake sales for PFLAG, but his love life is anything but picture-perfect. The guys he dates usually turn out to have criminal records, bankruptcy histories, personality disorders, or wives. And for the first time in his life, Adam is ready to look for Mr. Right instead of Mr. Right-Out-the-Door. But where to look is more the question. It's not like bucolic, sleepy Eau Claire, Wisconsin, is exactly crawling with adorable, uncloseted gay men. Taking a job in New York City is awfully tempting, and when a computer company makes Adam an offer he can't refuse, he packs his flannel shirts and heads east in a hurry.
Like lots of driven, career-focused people before him (think Marlo; think Mary Richards; rethink the flannel shirts...) Adam tackles the big city with farm-fresh enthusiasm, taking in the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and tons of museums. But the most breathtaking sight of all is Jeremy, the blond, brown-eyed beauty Adam catches sight of in a Chelsea coffee shop. In addition to a buff bod and a to-die-for face, Jeremy's got a few other attributes like a heart, a soul, and a conscience. Trouble is, he may also have an annoying boyfriend bent on turning the sexy TV actor into the yoga-practicing equivalent of Mother Teresa with better shoes. Now that Adam's sure he's met the love of his life, how can he get Jeremy to fall in love with him? Catching Jeremy is going to take more than Adam's sweet-natured country enthusiasm.
While Adam chases Jeremy through New York's finest restaurants and hottest nightclubs, the former Wisconsin jock has to admit he's having the time of his life. Taking his own bite out of the Big Apple, Adam discovers a truth worth fighting for ... that sometimes, getting Mr. Right isn't about holding on, it's about letting go and following wherever your heart leads you.
