At Piper’s Point

Ten years and many boyfriends later, Cassidy Winters finally returns to the ancestral home of his late grandmother, Sadie Hart, despite the best efforts of his father to prevent it. Cassidy’s plans of a quiet, seaside ceremony to wish a final farewell to Sadie quickly unravel. Interruptions run roughshod, beginning with Neil, who walks out of the ocean and straight into Cassidy’s bed. The dominos topple one by one when the little dog he rescues from the hounds of hell brings him to Ben, the hunky vet who rescues Cassidy right back. News of his arrival spreads faster than Cassidy’s legs, bringing his boyhood friend and first love Nate Sommers to his doorstep — leaving Cassidy spiraling into a multi-layered love snafu. As if the island wasn’t getting crowded enough for Cassidy’s good taste and bad decisions, best friends Ollie and Spencer arrive in time to witness the uninvited return of Cassidy’s most recent ex, Teddy, who’s refusing to stay dumped.

Fists fly and all hell breaks loose amid mojitos and martinis while Cassidy finds himself planning a huge party to celebrate Sadie’s life. Accusations are aimed as arguments and libidos boil over, but even through the chaos Cassidy knows exactly who he wants. While he’s certainly willing, he isn’t sure if he’s ready or able for love and life at Pipers Point.

Cassidy stood on the far side of the bed smiling, obviously lit as he watched Nate pull off his shirt and toss it onto the floor in front of the closet door. He turned away, trying to concentrate on the pictures on the wall. Do not sprout a boner, Horny McGee. His entire body was amazingly tingly, but he wasn’t so drunk that he felt out of control or unable to communicate. He was a little sleepy and a whole lot turned on. But he knew that if he concentrated, he could keep control over his wanton, slutty libido.

Cassidy undid the buttons on his jeans, then pushed them down over his hips. Wriggling his legs in an attempt to get his pants off, he lifted the black turtleneck over his head, getting his hands tangled in the elastic wristbands as he attempted to pull them free. He started to laugh, realizing his head was stuck in the neck as well, trapping him. “Who turned out the lights?”

“You’re drunk off your ass,” he listened to Nate say while laughing at him. “Just hold still while I finish getting my pants off.”

“Ah…the phrase every little intoxicated homo dreams of hearing.”

“I’d prefer to not know how many times you’ve heard it, if it’s all the same to you.”

Cassidy laughed, liking it when Nate got jealous. He began turning his head around frantically in an attempt to get his bearings. He decided there was no need to wait for Nate, feeling he could free himself as he continued to wriggle around.

He was just beginning to feel hopeless, like he was caught in one of those Chinese finger traps where the more you struggled, the more hopeless your chances of getting loose became. He managed to pull one hand free with a grunt, then stopped moving altogether as he listened to Dog’s nails clicking furiously across the wood floor.

“I feel like I’m falling,” Cassidy got out just before he hit the floor with a thud. He started to belly laugh, hearing Nate lose it. “Dude, that fucking hurt.”

“You idiot.”

His pants were pulled loose from around his ankles.

“I told you to wait and I’d help you.”

“I didn’t need any help,” Cassidy said as Nate’s hand closed around his free wrist. “I almost got free.”

“Difficult to believe, coming from the doofus lying on the floor.” Nate helped him up onto his feet.

Cassidy decided not to struggle, holding his trapped wrist out for Nate, who jerked it loose. Perhaps I’m worse off than I thought. His head bobbed around a little as Nate yanked the turtleneck from around his neck. Nate stood directly in front of him in nothing but a pair of dark gray spandexlike boxer briefs, and Cassidy was feeling particularly good about it.

Cassidy enjoyed the seductive sense of security having Nate’s hands around his waist, holding him up. His skin was still warm from lying out in the sun all afternoon, and for some reason that made him feel all sexy. He knew he was drunk, but as he stared into Nate’s eyes, he struggled to remember why they’d come to the conclusion that having sex with each other was a bad idea.

Nate blinked, turning away momentarily, breaking the dreamy spell Cassidy had been under.

“Where’s Dog?” Cassidy asked, trying to push away the thoughts that maybe Nate didn’t want to fuck him because he wasn’t interested.

Nate shoved Cassidy back onto the bed. “She shot under the bed when you started to fall.”

Cassidy laughed again, feeling slightly dizzy as he hit the mattress, bouncing up and down a little.

“Take those trunks off,” Nate said, turning to the dresser. “If you can even get ’em off.”

Cassidy fumbled with the drawstrings until he got them untied, then lifted his hips and peeled them down. “You didn’t mind them so much earlier today,” Cassidy said, sitting up so he could take them the rest of the way off. “Considering the way you were checking me out.”

Cassidy smirked, pleased with himself as a pair of jersey boxers hit him in the face. They fell down onto his lap just in time for Cassidy to watch a very naked Nate bending over to slip on a pair of the same.
