AT PIPER’S POINT has all that you want in a great book – humor, sexiness and a healthy handful of angst. ~ Under the Covers

This is my first book by Ethan Day and I can see why its been so highly recommended. AT PIPER’S POINT has all that you want in a great book – humor, sexiness and a healthy handful of angst.

Cassidy Winters returns to his grandmother’s sacred home after she passes away. As Cassidy deals with grief, healing and his father, you can already tell that there is a lot going on in this book. Despite the sombre tone, there is also a lot to celebrate about. Cassidy meets Neil, a sexy visior that becomes a welcome distraction. From there, other side characters are introduced and soon, it becomes a small family of sorts as Day gives readers insights into their personalities as well.

More is added when Nate Sommers, Cassidy’s childhood friend and first love enters the picture, creating much more than Cassidy can deal with. He is a mess, but at the same time, it’s nice and refreshing to see someone who is broken, but still had some spirit. The humor is what made this book for me. It creates the perfect balance of dark and light in a story. Because of the heavy emotions that are involved in this story, Cassidy’s bright personality really makes him an endearing character.

While all that is nice, I did think that this book rambled on in some places about things that were mentioned already. Other times, I don’t think the author was clear enough in his descriptions and/or coverage of events. I had to go back and reread just to make sure I got things straight in my head before continuing on. I wonder if that’s just Day’s writing style, but since this is my first book by him, I can’t really say if it’s the author’s personal style or just a lack of editing.

All in all, AT PIPER’S POINT is an emotionally poignant book about healing and love. I’m looking forward to reading more of Ethan Day’s books.

About Ethan Day

I am a gay man living in Missouri...I can hear the gasps already!! How very un-chic of me, yes I know. It was here I was born and here I have stayed.

I'm currently single but always looking for that special someone that makes my heart skip a beat...in addition to being able to put up with my neurotic ass. The worst thing about being a romance writer is finding a real life hottie that can live up to the fantasy I create in my head and subsequently thrust upon him before actually getting to know the real him. I can hear you getting all judgie...it's an occupational hazard!! To all my past and future boyfriends, my sincerest apologies...I can't help myself!

I was the youngest of four children and the only boy, so needless to say, I was spoiled rotten. I've always had an extravagant fantasy life. When I played with my Star Wars action figures as a child, I liked to make up my own stories. Naturally, Luke Skywalker and Han Solo were totally meant for each other, and Princess Leia made a bitchin' wise cracking Fag Hag.

I somehow managed to survive high school living in a small racist town in Southeast Missouri and emerged unscathed, realizing life was too short to pretend to be anything other than who I was. I was the little homo that could...so damn it, I did! It was all very Lifetime Movie Network meets After School Special I assure you.

After a few stints in college, I eventually signed up for a Creative Writing course. I took the class because there were no tests. For once my scholastic laziness paid off, and I found an outlet for all the fantasies running amuck in my head. It was love at first write, and I've been doing it off and on ever since.

Now I've decided it's time to un-barricade the doors and unleash my imagination onto the world. So very sorry world!! My fantasy life is now available for public consumption and I'm desperately hoping you're really, really hungry.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m a 26 year old obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I’m also a reviewer for FreshFiction.com. Over there, I’m also a columnist. I have a column called Into the Night that discusses the latest and greatest news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
