Blurb:

Sometimes a guy’s best angle is below the belt.

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.

My View:

This is a sweet little holiday tale that doesn’t hit you over the head with the fact that it is a sweet little holiday tale. David is a single (bi) father. Widowed by his best friend few years ago, he had resigned himself to casual hookups until his daughter is ready to leave the house. Most single gay men don’t want to be saddled with a kid, right? Suffering from a bit of low self-esteem, he attempts to take a rather intimate self. Of course, if you are going to take such selfies and leave them on your phone, you should keep better hold of said phone… otherwise it just might lead to a love connection… err trouble.

I felt a little hit over the head with a few details, like the fact that David was Bi, but couldn’t see himself with another woman after his wife and best friend died. Or the fact that Craig is a go-go dancer who isn’t ashamed of what he does, but he won’t tell the successful doctor, David, about his night/weekend job. But we didn’t really get enough details about other things like why Craig hooked up with his jackass roommate in the first place. The sex (twice) while one partner was down with the flu was just a bit umm… much for me.

All those points aside, I did enjoy my time reading David’s Selfie. It wasn’t deep, and sometimes that is just what I need. As with many holiday romances, we have an insta-love scenario… but yeah, it is Christmas 🙂
