REVIEW: “David’s Selfie” by Daisy Harris

PersonalizedBannerSara

ABOUT:

When David, a single father, vows to get laid just once before the year ends, he doesn’t figure on losing his cell phone—and with it one very revealing picture. Lucky for him, his phone is found by a disarmingly handsome man who might be perfect for the kind of casual Christmas fling David is after.

Go-go dancer Craig never would have guessed that the guy with the cute cock shot would turn out to be a doctor. Or that he’d find himself lying about his night job and worrying David will find out the truth. To complicate matters, each of their hook-ups requires days of planning. Yet before he knows it, Craig has a new boyfriend, and possibly a whole new family.

David’s ready to dive head-first into something new, but if Craig’s going to commit, he’ll need to come clean about his job, his past, and—most of all—the naughty picture that drew him to David in the first place.

Warning: Contains a male exotic dancer and extremely intimate photography. May contain traces of Zumba, bad roommates, and sad childhoods.

Call your doctor if after six hours you still can’t get the grin off your face.

 

REVIEW:

I am in love with this story. Enamored really and I just want to read it all over again and again and again.

I enjoyed this so much and yeah, I am a sucker for stories like this and with kids.

David is a widower with a toddler. Having lost his wife Ana, he decides that it’s time for him get back to the boy love side of being bisexual and get laid. Feeling brave, he attempts to take a selfie of his package, with an insistent toddler outside the door. Having three kids, I loved the reality of this situation. No, I haven’t tried to take naked pictures in the bathroom, but my husband and used I to say that our youngest son, had literal fucking radar. *nods* Just think about that one for a minute and imagine the cries of “Why can’t I come in?!” from the other side of your bedroom door, every time. So now that I have gone all TMI…

This story was very real for me, one of the most realistic of romances I have read in while. There was no suspending of anything in this I only had to find the time to read and get lost with the boys. It’s an easy and fun read, with a sprinkle of awe inducing awkward moments, but also a sexy as hell read. Goodness, just thinking about David being all greedy but needy at the same time and Craig with his ability to take control but be so damn vulnerable… I was done for with that combination.

The romance was wonderful but the layers, the layers of these men are what kept me glued to the page. You would think, going into this that David with be the one with the suitcase full of issues but his are just carry-on luggage compared to what Craig has to unload. Ugh. Craig, so many times I wanted to bundle up the go go boy and just hug the hell out of him. From his childhood, to his living situation and his feelings about dancing. I adored that he was attracted to all of David, that the idea of the “ordinary” boy was what he wanted though most would assume, on the surface it would be the opposite. The whole more than meets the eye theme is apparent here and I loved the way these two find one another.

When David turned and saw Craig, it was as if Craig was seeing spring for the first time. Plenty of men watched Craig dance on weekend nights, impressed or lustful or even amused. None of them looked at him like David did.

So about that, back to David and that selfie of his package. Who would have thought leaving your phone in the bathroom at the local gay bar could lead to finding your future? I mean, I am a sucker for romance and believe in fate and being in the right place at the right time.  I can’t help it, I saw his – um face? and I’m a believer.

David being a dad was done so well. Many instances I was nodding along with being a parent. I liked how real Maia was and how she wasn’t a caricature or too mature for her small three years, she was simply David’s daughter, a huge part of his life and the cutest button to watch as she charmed the hell out of Craig.

I am so in love with this book!  This book hooked me in immediately, from the first page to that oh so perfect, clench your heart and swoon across the bed like a princess, epilogue. It has everything that I love and then some. It even has Christmas! *gasp* and though that cover makes me want to have Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg offering me their dick in a box, I can’t stop freaking (sorry about the language, David) grinning and sighing and swooning and falling in love with these men.

… he wondered if Craig knew what a gift he was giving. Whether he knew David felt really alive for the first time in years.

Did I say anything about the book? I have no idea, so let me say this. If you are looking for a hot, sexy, smart, funny, endearing and all over romantic read that will make your toes curl as you turn into goo… pick this up. That’s all. *runs off to check phone for inappropriate pictures I need to delete*
