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.
So I’ve read many books by this author and enjoyed most of them.
This was my first audio, and I have to say over all I really enjoyed it. A little long winded, too much detail, ( do I have to know that he shook and then grabbed a tissue to wipe his junk after peeing?, probably not) But the whole story was filled with little details like that, some I found charming and needed. Most however, I found were just added to add? IDK.
The back and forth between Nate and Cass, pretty much through out the whole story was a nice touch. Even though we have them in bed together, they never fell into the old habits. They took the time, sometimes forced on them, to learn each other again.
I simple loved how all the friends had a history. And how Ollie and Spencer found each other. It really was a great cast of characters.
The side stories of Ben, Teddy and Neil. Makes for a lot going on, but the author does a good job of keeping it flowing smoothly.
The ending was perfect, you just knew at some point that SOB would show up and it was handled brilliantly.
And of course we got the right people with the right people. And we had an HEA everyone can live with.
I’ve heard this narrator a time or two before and find he does an great job with these more witty roles. So perfect match.
