Publisher's summary

A strict older man. A sassy film star. Can opposites attract?

After taking early retirement from the police force, Liam is happy avoiding people and tending to his roses. Or he was, until Felix moves in next door.

Felix is taking a break from his acting career, even though he's on the cusp of stardom. With his cheeky, persistent, and very naughty behavior, he gets under Liam’s skin instantly.

Felix needs someone who can set him boundaries - man who can handle him firmly, but with love. Liam doesn't think he needs anyone, until Felix brings much needed sunshine into his life.

Will Felix choose stability and love, or a life of glitz and glamour?

A Boy Made of Sunshine is a light hearted gay romance with a grumpy ex-detective, a brash new neighbor, a cute Dalmatian puppy, and lots of brattish behavior.

Buckets of sexy sunshine

4 Blue Roses
4 Blue Flames
Narrator Dan Calley flipped his usual dark and somber performances for something bright and sparkly. He dug that old foundation out and shoveled in new buckets of hot sunshiny fun. His older daddy voice opposed to the dashing upbeat sassy voice was as much quirky as sexy. Dan pulled it off so easily. He was able to reach inside and pull the deeper emotions to the foreground, gifting us with an experience the characters POV on a much deeper level.

Liam and Felix are such a beautiful couple. Their sexual connection was hot, hot, hot, and very well written. The bratty younger but not stupid versus the grumpy older but retired neighbor was extremely enjoyable. I would have loved more information about their pasts. What really happened to Liam and why he retired. I did not feel his pain or stress causing him to go on early retirement. I did not understand his world before Felix.

If you like big age-gaps, this one should not be missed. It will lift your mood and leave you all mushy, hot and giggly.

Happy Listening

it was good

I enjoyed this book, but it was not near as angsty as I expected. actually, I would say there was little to no angst at all, it was all pretty much sunshine.
one thing I did not really like was the narrator's American accent for the character of Emma, but that was only a small part towards the end so not enough to ruin the experience for me.

Sunshine Days

This is both anew author and narrator for me. I am very satisfied with both. This is a light tale where love grows and decisions are made that end with a HEA.

an adorable opposites attract, age gap romance

Felix brought the sunshine and Liam brought the grump to this adorable opposites attract, age gap romance. It is a wonderfully funny story with not much angst and a lot of sweetness. Narrator, Dan Calley, did a really good job with both characters and was a joy to listen to.

Excellent Daddy/ boy Romance

A Boy Made of Sunshine (audiobook)
MMy Thoughts and Review:

I sort of assumed this would be like most other age gap romances, where the two guys hit it off and there was a nice story filled with a couple of steamy scenes, some clever dialog, and then the inevitable HEA. I should have known better with this being a Colette Davison novel. Nothing is simple or easy for the characters in her stories. And thank the stars for it, because it is what brings devout readers (like me) coming back time and again.

This is a fabulously told tale about a retired detective, Liam, who likes keeping away from people, because humanity as a whole has turned dark and oppressive. His years on the force have shown him just how terrible people can be to one another and he no longer wants to be part of society.

A new neighbor has moved in next door and he has brought every flamboyant color of the rainbow with him, and maybe a few that have yet to be discovered. Felix is filled with light and warmth and while he is taking a break from his acting career for a moment he is making it his mission to break the barrier surrounding the neighbor’s hardened heart and maybe let a little sunshine in.

Liam on the other hand thinks his sassy and misbehaving neighbor needs a few lessons that only a qualified and seasoned Dom can teach. With any luck, by the end of the lessons Liam will have Felix well in hand calling him, “Daddy,” and Liam will have a gift he never thought he would have again… “A Boy Made of Sunshine,” to call his own.

I do believe out of all Colette’s books I have read so far; this story has been my favorite. I love Daddy/ boy and age gap stories anyway and Liam and Felix together were wonderful. Liam was such a curmudgeon and Felix an honest ray of sunshine that you could not help but cheer them on.

If you are looking for some very sMMexy Daddy/ boy kink with heart, look no further. This one will give you all the feels you wish. Guaranteed!

The Story: 5.00 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
The Narration: 4.00 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Overall: 4.50🌟🌟🌟🌟. ✨

A fun age gap, opposites attract!

This was an adorable age gap romance with light daddy kink amd low on the angst.
It features one grumpy ex cop, one cheeky neighbor, an adorable Dalmatian puppy and a whole lot of feels.
This book really made me smile and I absolutely adored Felix.
If you love a sweet sunshine and grumpy, opposites attract romance, low on the angst and high on the steam, I definitely recommend this one.
Dan Calley did a commendable job on the narration which made listening to this even more enjoyable.

Full of Sunshine and love

Colette Davison has written another beautiful story and picked a narrator who has brought it to life.

STORY: 5 STARS
A Boy Made of Sunshine is lighthearted, fun, full of love and understanding, and has the right amount of humor and emotion. It's lighthearted and will give you the warm fuzzies...like you are full of sunshine. Well-written with a flow that will pull you in, demanding that you turn to the next page. And when you are done, you are not ready for it to end. I loved Liam and Felix. Their personalities were as different as night and day...for the most part, but they belonged together and brought out the very best in each other. Their story, with the growing pains, emotions, and personalties comes through brilliantly in this book.

NARRATION: 4.5 STARS
Dan Calley did a great job of bringing both Liam and Felix alive. He was able to highlight their nuances, and his voice flowed with the words he spoke. My only issue was, there were times I wish there was more of a distinction between the two voices. But I barely noticed that.

OVERALL: 4.5 STARS
Great story, wonderful narration, and a must-read or listen to. I highly recommend this book and overall give it 4.5 stars.

Fun but a bit hollow

As a kid, did you ever get a great big foil-wrapped chocolate bunny for Easter, only to bite one of the ears off and discover it was hollow? Sure, the chocolate was still delicious, and you enjoyed it while it lasted. But remember somehow feeling disappointed because you’d expected more? This book sort of gave me that feeling. What’s here is delicious, but it left me somehow feeling let down that there wasn’t more to it. I think that my problem is that we learn almost nothing about the main characters beyond what we surmised whilst reading the blurb. The characters are superficially charming. The steps in the rom-com ritual are all here. But on some level, their lack of personal detail made it feel a bit like we were just going through the motions.

I still don’t really get the whole daddy/boy BDSM vibe, and parts still feel a bit silly to me, but this is a charming tale of irrepressible an ex child-star (13 movies by age 24) and a curmudgeonly retired ex-cop that may have once been a dom but is now quite literally gathering his rosebuds after taking early retirement.

Dan Calley does another credible role as narrator; ably voicing both Liam, the gruff retired detective, and Felix, the ever perky film star, hankering to have someone who’ll care enough to teach him to behave. Dan’s rendition of Felix’s agent Emma is a bit weird but for a British guy doing an American woman it’s not bad.

This tale is about as low-key, low angst as they come. Both main characters are likable and you’re rooting for them from chapter one. If the Hallmark channel were ever to do a BDSM Christmas movie, these are the guys they’d feature. Although how Hallmark would handle the frequent graphic scenes might be problematic.

Overall, this was a fun, care-free romp that I enjoyed, but it’s lack of depth will probably keep it out of my frequent replay list.
*** Note I received a free copy of this audio-book in hopes of a free and fair review. This is an honest evaluation.***

Story: 3.5 - story with depth and heart

I’m always honest in my reviews, but I’m going to go a step further in this one. I am going to tell you that I don’t dive very deep into kink. I respect it, but it’s very much not for me. Now, before you start judging me, yes, I read the blurb. I knew what the book was going to include. I did make sure to research if it had age play or ABDL, and upon receiving the answer I was looking for, I decided to give it a go. The ONLY reason I even entertained the idea was the fact that it was written by Colette Davison. I’ve read quite a few of her books and have truly enjoyed them. She’s a great writer, and I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to listen to it.

This story includes two very, very different men. They weren’t the same age, didn’t have similar temperaments, their interests were different, and they had different life experiences. Felix was the light to Liam's darkness and the cheerfulness to his grumpiness. I loved Felix’s various nicknames for Liam. Grumpy bear was my favorite. Grumpy older men are my kryptonite. Felix didn’t shy away from showing his interest, but Liam fought it tooth and nail. Well, until Felix poked the bear...could it become more? Could these men find a spot in each other’s lives?

The story was well written, and the characters were very well developed. I really enjoyed their relationship arc. There was plenty of steam, and if you enjoy BDSM with daddy/boy elements to it, you will really enjoy the steamy moments. Their relationship in the bedroom very much played into their story outside of the bedroom, so for this story, it couldn’t go without it. It’s a big part of who our leading men are. Even I wouldn’t suggest separating it from them.

Dan Calley did a phenomenal job, as always, bringing these men to life. He puts so much emotion, behind his narration, that you can truly sense it. I feel like he was the perfect narrator to tell this story.

Fun, a bit of kink with all the feels!

I really enjoyed this! Felix is a fun, bit of a brat, but lovely character. Liam's, defines the word grump -ar first - then as Frlix slowly works his charm (and other attributes 😉), he becomes a sweetheart, well for Felix, anyway.
There is a bit of D/S and Daddy kink, but not heavy at all, and it really suits the story.
I think Dan Calley did a marvelous job with the narration. He really captured the essence of both men. I loved how he portrayed Felix in particular. Overall, I had a great time listening to this.
