Publisher's Summary

Raf never knew he needed a Daddy until he meets Daddy Brendan....

Adulting is hard for Raf. After a less than ideal youth, he’d hoped to find where he belongs. But despite trying several things in the club his best friend frequents, nothing clicks for him.

Until he meets Daddy Brendan, the perfect bear of a man with the gentle voice, the soft cuddles, and an appendage Raf is rather fascinated by.

Daddy Brendan wants to take care of Raf in every way, and Raf quickly discovered he loves being Daddy Brendan’s baby boy. He’s finally found where he belongs. If only he could forget about his past and be truly happy....

Gentle Hand is a daddy kink MM romance with age play and ABDL. Please note trigger warnings for mild homophobia, parental mistreatment, and depression. It’s the second book in the Perfect Hands series, but can be enjoyed as a stand-alone.

Didn't Know 'Littles' Were a Thing

Author Nora Phoenix either knows Littles personally, or has done a lot of research. I am so vanilla, it's ridiculous, but she led me gently into this world with care, compassion, and knowledge. The Little in this book also has ADHD, which complicates his life and the way he reacts with the world. Daddy takes time to research ADHD, and feels that loving Raf is worth the effort.

There is a short scene where Raf is confronted with a child expressing gender 'confusion.' I found it hearbreaking.

Narrator Kenneth Obi was especially wonderful as Daddy Brendan. He was never harsh or demanding. Obi gave care and consideration to each sentence Daddy spoke to Raf, much as Daddy did to Raf after one major breakdown. I fell in love with the Teddy Bear Daddy, and his chosen baby boy Raf.

So sweet! Perfect Daddy Boy Story

This was an incredibly sweet and hot Daddy-Boy ABDL MM romance. Rafe is a sweet young man who struggles with ADHD and depression and is learning to find his way becoming an adult. After several incidents in the BDSM scene fall flat for Rafe, he is discovered crying by an older Daddy. The love story between Daddy Brendon and baby boy Rafe is well developed and has the HEA you definitely want! I hope this series continues so we can learn about Ford and maybe someone with other disabilities....even accepting Jason from the restaurant! Firm Hand and Gentle Hand are definitely going to be on my relisten list. Fantastic narration as well!

Taking Care

Rafe is searching for his place. Brendon is there to help him find his way. There is lot that needs to be unpacked but they are perfect for each other. They are a great couple. I love the strength of their love.

I loved this

I love this book. So much that I have read it and listened to twice over.

Raf is an excitable misunderstood man that tries to find his way in life as well as in the BDSM scene, but nothing seems to fit right until he meets Daddy Brendon. Follow their story as Raf explores being a little while trying to navigate the adult world and coping with some held up emotions.

This story is deep and the love between the characters is strong. I love how patient Brendan is with Raf and helping him to grow into his little self as well as his big self.

As always, Kenneth did an amazing job. I honestly can't say enough about his work.

GENTLE PERFECTION!!!

I simply loved the dynamic of this couple.
They are so sweet together and found myself smiling so much.
An emotional read that caused a few tears, which speaks volumes as to how you become invested in their story.

I absolutely love this Narrator. Everything he reads is melted silk chocolate...yumm!

Gentle Hand

A sweet story about two beautiful people finding exactly what they need in each other. Now I want to listen to Firm Hand again.
Narrator Kenneth Obi does another amazing job.

So sweet

Gentle Hand was an adorably, sweet story. I loved how Daddy Brendan swooped in right away and helped navigate Raf through his kink. My heart brok for poor Raf and all he struggles with but his daddy was always there to help him work through his issues.
Narration was on point. I enjoy The voice Kenneth uses when voicing “littles” but im not a fan of the overly deep daddy voice. That’s just my preference and did not detract from my enjoyment of this audiobook.

Absolutely loved it

Where do I start? 🤔

I loved this book but hearing daddy Brendan and Rafs voices made it so much more. I listen when I'm driving home and it just makes the days crap go away.

Will definitely be listening to more.
Thank you Kenneth Obi. 10 stars ✨ from me.

All the feels - wow

This book is emotional! It is sweet, raw, gentle, sad, joyful and sexy af! But not only that. The story is told with such respect and love for the characters. How they work their dynamics and struggle with their past to build a consented future together.

Thank you Nora for such a beautyful job. And thank you Kenneth for bringing not just the characters’ voices to life but also all their feelings and emotions.

as good as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the top 5 narrators (so far) for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Sweet Daddy and his adorable boy

This audiobook is amazing. Nora Phoenix really brings Raf and his Daddy Brendon to life in her writing and Kenneth Obi makes them live with his narration. My heart broke for poor Raf with no one other than his best friend Rhys at his side and the difficulty he had with his ADHD. I was so happy for him when Daddy Brendan began to help him because he really was a boy in need of a Daddy. When I read the book I felt so invested in the characters, and Kenneth Obi’s narration just expounds that feeling. He does both the sweet, lighter voice of Raf and the stronger dominant voice of his Daddy Brendan equally well. Definitely recommended!

More emotional then the book!!

I love love love this story and have read the book a number of times. My review from Amazon

Ok this was definitely a read and can’t put down book, Raf is so sweet but a prime example of how emotional abuse can affect you into adulthood!! Brendan is such a great daddy that perfect blend of caring for his boy and allowing lifting his boy and allowing him to grow into himself and giving him the safety net to be able to deal with his trauma and move on. Nora has done and amazing job of showing what happens when a little and Daddy meet who are perfect for each other.

If you are new to Nora’s Amazing writing skills but are a fan of m.a. innes then you will love this, so read and then read the rest of Nora’s books you won’t be disappointed

In respect to the audible book, I am wowed as this for me was a prime example of how different reading and listening can be, there were a number of things I missed in the book that I picked up on in this audible and the emotional journey that Raf went on was more intense and emotional in the audible, I found myself crying and heart broken for RAF in the audible that I didn’t experience so intensely in the book, I loved the voices that Kenneth used, so thank you Kenneth from taking a 5 star book and for me turning it into a 6 star book. I can’t wait for the other books Raf and Brendan pops up in coming to audio
