Hollywood royalty Jeremy Jameson has lived a sheltered life with music as his sole focus and only friend. Before embarking on yet another international concert tour, he wanders into a bar in what he considers the middle-of-nowhere and meets a man who wins him over with his friendly smile and easy-going nature. Accountant slash bartender slash adventure-seeker Reg Moore has fun talking and drinking with The Jeremy Jameson and can’t say no when the supposedly straight rock star makes him a once in a lifetime offer: keep him company on his tour by playing the part of his boyfriend.
Listening to music, traveling the world, and jumping off cliffs is fun. Falling in love is even better. But to stay with Jeremy after the stage lights dim, Reg will need to help him realize there’s nothing pretend about their relationship.
Jeremy Jameson may be Hollywood royalty but underneath it all he is just a very lonely man. Looking to escape from the press and all the pressure’s associated with being a rock star for a while before he starts another international tour Jeremy ends up in a bar in a little town in the middle of nowhere. It’s while sitting at the bar the Jeremy meets Reg Moore, Reg is tending bar whilst saving money so he can go on the adventure of a lifetime. Reg knows the man at the bar is The Jeremy Jameson but it’s obvious he doesn’t want anyone to know it’s him so he doesn’t say anything.
Reg has always thought Jeremy was a good-looking man but now he’s seeing in person, he thinks he is gorgeous. The more Reg talks to Jeremy the more he likes him as a person and when the time comes to close the bar Reg urges Jeremy to come back to his place because he’s had too much to drink. While they are having their ‘nightcap’ Jeremy realises he has never gotten along with anyone the way he does with Reg. When he tells Reg he wants to hire him as a pretend boyfriend so he won’t be so alone on this tour, Reg’s heart nearly breaks.
Jeremy can’t believe the difference having Reg on tour with him makes, he’s not lonely, he’s relaxed, he doesn’t have to worry about handling the day-to-day things he normally gets bombarded with because Reg has taken control of that as well. The longer they’re together the deeper Reg’s feeling are for Jeremy but as far as he knows Jeremy is oblivious to the way he feels. It takes Jeremy months to even have an inkling that Reg might be gay! When Jeremy asks Reg to sleep in his bed just to hold him, Reg realises just how touch deprived he is. So begins Reg’s all-out assault to get Jeremy used to being touched and held, by him. Jeremy can’t believe that he has missed out on identifying an essential part of himself, he’s not as straight as he thought! But with Reg there really isn’t a downside, he learns what it means to love and be loved in return, not used to further someone’s career.
