Luc O'Donnell is tangentially--and reluctantly--famous. To clean up his image, Luc has to find a nice, normal relationship, and Oliver Blackwood is as nice and normal as they come. Unfortunately apart from being gay, single, and in need of a date for a big event, Luc and Oliver have nothing in common.
