'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes
Sean McCartney gave up a computer career to work as a carpenter on South Beach, but the real estate downturn has left him unemployed and questioning his decisions. He's spending his free time in the pool with the other guys from the Miami Beach Gay Swim Team.
The team's coach, Gaspar Fuentes, is single and forty-five, and feeling lonely at Christmas. So the guys decide to surprise him with a real Cuban Noche Buena, Christmas Eve. Because he has free time, Sean is roped into organizing with Magnus Anderson, a real Type-A personality who's constantly hounding Sean to do this, do that. Sean can't stand him, and he gets the impression Magnus thinks Sean's a real loser.
But neither of them can deny the sexual attraction between them. Can they make it as a couple? When the party's over on Noche Buena, will they open their presents together, or go their separate ways?
