Self Preservation

Deseree took the drinks from the bartender and held one out for Davis. He lifted his hand to take it and scowled. “These damn sleeves are too long.”
“They’re supposed to be. You look hip.”
Davis frowned, flinging his hand around, trying to flip the cuff off so he could take the drink from her.
“Stop that!” Deseree shook her head at him. “You look ridiculous.”
“Well, hell.” Davis grinned as he pushed the sleeve back with his other hand and took the martini from her.
“Lean back on the bar and rest your elbows on it,” Deseree said, setting her drink down and moving in front of him. He did as instructed, and she undid a couple of the buttons on the bottom of the shirt. A naughty grin spread over her face as he looked down to see a tiny bit of his stomach showing.
“Again with making me look like a hooker.”
“Zip it,” she said, moving back to his side. She picked up her glass as they examined the crowd. “See, there’s an extreme hottie over there checking you out. He looks kinda familiar.”
“Where?” Davis asked, surveying the room. “I don’t see.”
“By the windows, are you fucking blind? No wonder you’ve never met anyone else. You were probably too dense to notice them cruising you.”
“I have issues, we know this.” Davis shot her a look. “Besides, he could be cross-eyed for all we know.”
“Shit, he’s coming this way,” Deseree said, excitedly taking a drink.
The man made his way through the crowd, and a hand grabbed his arm, stopping him. The crowd shifted and Davis and Deseree gasped. The hand that had halted him belonged to Jack.
“No fucking way.” Deseree watched as Jack embraced the other man. “That can’t be him.”
“The Toad,” Davis said, eyes widening.

Ethan Day,

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.
