Review: Self Preservation

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.

Self Preservation by Ethan Day was a delightfully quirky tale of the life of main character Davis and the quest to secure his place in the life of his first love Jack. Out of the blue Davis receives a call from Jack inviting him to his upcoming nuptials with Tadd. Reluctantly, Davis accepted the invitation but with ulterior motives to win the heart of Jack back. With the help of his friend Deseree, they changed Davis’s exterior and devised a plan to break up Jack and Tadd.

Along the way, Davis was introduced to Tadd’s friend and fellow wedding guest Alex. Alex was smitten with the quirky Davis and decided to assist in the wedding debacle plan with ulterior motives of his own.

Mr. Day delivered characters that were larger than life as each traversed the waters of relationship woes. Self Preservation was funny and touching. Davis was ruled by the past and thus could not initially see what was in front of him. His whininess added to the unfolding drama and made the story all the more enjoyable.

Self Preservation was well crafted and gave new meaning to dysfunctional family and friends in the most loving way possible.
