Davis first love is Jack. They met in college and were inseparable for 4 years. In the 6 years since they split, Davis has built a business but not moved on, he feels as though they are on just a small hiatus. That is until he receives a phone call from Jack telling him that he is getting married to a guy he met just 2 weeks earlier. Knowing that Jack is still the man for him, Davis along with his best friend Deseree head to Chicago with the intention of making Davis look irresistible to Jack and getting Jack to call off this farce of a wedding to the man he just met. But is the guy from his past what he really needs, or is he just trying to reclaim something better left in the past?
Ethan Day is an author that needs more recognition. With the ability to bring the world of his imagination to life in such a way that you cannot help but fall into it full force. Self Preservation had me laughing, crying and just generally reflecting on the past; on the person that everyone has in the past that ended too soon, that we would give anything to recapture. Yet sometimes we need a wakeup call to let us know that it is time to move on. Love is an amazing thing, and tends to come when you least expect it.
Genre: LGBT Erotic Contemporary
Davis always assumed they would wind up back together, until Jack calls and invites Davis to his wedding to Tadd Austin, a prominent architect in Chicago. Jack's only known Tadd for two weeks, so whatever Jack feels for Tadd couldn't possibly compare to what he shared with Davis. There's no way in hell Davis can stand by and watch the life he always expected to get back slip away to some guy Jack barely knows. Tadd Austin, indeed…more like Toad Ass-ton, Davis thinks.
With his best friend, fashion designer Deseree Wildwood in tow, Davis has to shed his sweet, guy-next-door persona, and re-vamp his image into a self-confident, hot piece of eye candy. He's going to the wedding with only one goal in mind: to do whatever it takes to win back Jack. The Toad is toast!
Once in Chicago, Davis discovers it isn't going to be as easy as he thought. Not only is Tadd very un-Toad-like, but a mysterious British playboy named Alex Parker manages to interject himself into the mix. Only true love will survive as the tug of war ensues in this Bermuda love triangle from hell.
