5.0 out of 5 starsA Daddy, his boy, and his puppy (an audio review)
Reviewed in the United States on December 16, 2019
Davey’s Rule #19 – Daddy should never count how many shoes his boy owns.
Chris Kowalski is an emergency room physician from South Carolina. He works with pediatric surgeon Dr. Landon Prescott but neither man has seen what the other is. Chris is a pup in need of a master. Landon is a Daddy with a little boy Mikey. Only Davey, a bartender at the club Daddy’s Lap sees the situation for what it is. He invites Chris to come to the club. Chris is reticent. His first master was a disaster and he’s hidden that part of himself away ever since, resigned to just being a doctor and a bit of a klutz at that.
At the club he finds his people. At first he sits with the adults and carries on a conversation but then Landon offers to do a simple scene with him. Chris is finally free to be himself. He plays with Mikey and feels a deep contentment he’s been missing for years. But Landon and Michal (an aerospace engineer) have a good life. Taking on a third, a puppy no less, would complicate things. Right?
For me, ménage stories only work if there is a true equality. When two of the parties are littles or pups, it can be dicey. I love that negotiations always take place when all the men are in their adult personas. But I also love that Mikey and Chris can trust their Daddy/Master enough to know they’ll be treasured. Be cossetted. Be loved. Isn’t that what we all really want? Could I be a puppy or a little? Doubt it, but there is something tempting about the idea of letting someone else take control for once. For letting go of all responsibility and being free.
I love the dynamics in this story and even though it was short, it was very satisfying. I’m also loving this series and although I want Davey to find his forever Daddy, I’m enjoying watching him play matchmaker. The next story is out and I’m waiting with bated breath for it to come out on audio because, truly, I think Michael Dean (formerly Michael Pauley) was destined to narrate this series. He’s perfection, especially when he’s in Mikey’s point of view. There’s a mishap while Davey is babysitting and Michael just nails little Mikey in distress. My heart might have clutched a little bit because it’s every adult’s nightmare for a child to be hurt on their watch. Everything worked out in the end. Anyway, great short addition to the series and can’t wait for the next one.
Davey’s Rule # 74 – Daddy must always be available for comfort when his boy needs him mostest.
This is the fourth book in the Davey’s Rules series and although it can be read as stand-alone I highly suggest reading the other books in the series beforehand.
This was a short novella that focused on age play and puppy play. Daddy Dom Landon and his boy Mikey are an established couple with a Daddy/little dynamic. What I really loved about this couple was how Susan Hawke showed their relationship from all angles, and not just as Daddy/little. Watching Michael and Landon interact together outside of the age play scenes was nice. It really gave their relationship depth. I also enjoyed seeing some of the characters in their professional lives, which provided another layer to their personalities.
When Mikey gets hurt, he’s seen by Dr. Chris, who’s not only a doctor, but a pup in desperate need of a family of his own. From the beginning, Chris fits perfectly with Landon and Mikey. I enjoyed seeing the mixture of age play and puppy play, and how it could fit together. Plus, the threesome sex was spectacular. For a short novella, this book had a little bit of everything, and left me with a smile.
This was such a sweet novie. The Story gives a deeper view of the dynamic between Landon and Michael. It shows the deep level of love and commitment the two have for each other, and how even D/s knows no bounds when both partners are consenting.
After meeting a young doctor the couple decides to explore and take in, Chris, who has been forced from his home. He settles into the role he has always craved, but in the past was criticized and humiliated for.
Changing his name while in his puppy-space to Topher makes him feel even more wanted by this wonderful Daddy and his boy. Sharing in outings and learning the couple care for him, help him become the man and pup he always desired. He just needed safety...and TLC.💖
As always Susan Hawke took a topic that is taboo to many and turned it into a thing of beauty and love. Acceptance and unconditional love are amazing things, aren't they?
You can enjoy this lil menage novie on its own or as part of the Davey's Rules series. There are times, places, and scenes that run parallel to, "Rules to Break: DR book#2." No matter how you choose to read/ listen to this, you won't be disappointed. The audible version is especially decadent with the deep syrupy sweet voice of Michael Pauley as narrator. **pardon my drool...😋😂
