Tristan’s got issues; he knows he does. So when his most recent girlfriend dumps him but he’s preoccupied with the fact that he can’t stop staring at, and lusting after her brother Tristan figures it’s about time he make some changes and take the plunge into something he’s been wanting to do for a while – have sex with a man. Tristan’s got a plan. He sets up shop at his local Borders bookstore, collects a pile of gay lit titles as bait, sits himself down in the bookstore’s coffee bar and waits for a hook-up, someone who can show him what he’s been missing — Until who should crash his little stake-out but none other than Officer Michael Truax, a.k.a. Officer Helmet, the man who’s been a persistent pain in his skate boarding butt, dogging him with expensive tickets for not wearing a helmet.
Michael has been trying to catch Tristan for years…to give him a second ticket, or so that’s what he tells himself. Suddenly he’s faced with his ‘Sparky’, all grown up — and looking to get laid. The habit of protecting him isn’t gone completely, but the opportunity is too much to resist. He figures the kid must know what he’s getting into, so he takes him home. There, they carry on a cautious affair, only to find out that neither is what the other expected at all.
