“When I say that I had always yearned to be an Olympian, what I of course mean is that I am ass-over-teakettle nuts about jocks, and my life’s primary ambition has long been to fuck as many Olympic athletes as possible. The first time I ever clapped eyes on Michael Phelps’ extraordinary body in nothing but a Speedo, I knew that world-class athletes were my sexual destiny, and I set my sights on the Olympics at an early age. The shortest distance between two points being a straight line, I figured bunking up in a dorm full of them would provide me the easiest possible access to the Hottest Guys in the World.”
Meet Beau, a handsome young hopeful whose foolproof plan to wrangle his way onto the U.S. Olympic team has but one tiny flaw: he’s a flop at every sport he tries. An offhand reference by his European mother reveals a family connection to the world of competitive shooting, and a quick — if not wholly truthful — e-mail nets Beau an invitation to Luxembourg to train with Marcel, a dashing rifle champion. He jumps at the chance, and, when he learns that they aren’t actually related, at the champ. Sparks fly, but if Beau can’t keep his dick in his pants — or at least reserve it for Marcel’s exclusive enjoyment — there’s no guarantee that they’ll burn strong enough to keep the torch of his Olympic dreams aflame.
