It is the day of Summer Wilson’s wedding when he receives news that his ex-lover has shown up, seemingly to disrupt the happy nuptials. Suddenly, Summer is awash with doubt, wondering how it is possible to love two men...
His tale began on Memorial Day, at his college graduation party, where the privileged son of a noted New York financier, meets the sexy and elusive Aaron Carlton. After a secret night of passion, it is Aaron’s words which inspire Summer to pursue his dream, despite the obligations he has to his moneyed parents. Encouraging him along the way is his horny best friend, Tanner Fox, who never shies away from telling like it is.
Tossing all responsibility to the wind, Summer lands at the family’s lake house in the Upstate New York village of Windsheer, where he quickly meets the exotic Dante Ferraro, an Italian visitor to his own family’s winery. There, amidst the growing vines, Summer and Dante indulge their obvious attraction, and before long the two men are inseparable…in town, and in bed. But Aaron is not through with Summer, nor are his parents, and as conflict rages in Summer’s life, it’s his relationship with Dante that receives its greatest challenge.
From the Hamptons to the Finger Lakes to Manhattan, SUMMER’S CHOICE is Adam Carpenter at his sexiest best, where, over the course of one hot summer, passion and desire force one man to make the ultimate choice.
