Publisher's Summary

Just out of an 18-year marriage, the last thing Jackson expects the first time he visits a gay bar is for a sexy, drunk, 26-year-old twink to mistakenly climb into his Jeep. The twink part he's good with, the drunk part...not so much. As far as Jackson's concerned, the boy should come with a warning label. But Derek is not as flighty as Jackson thought...he's actually pretty incredible. Getting to know the wild, funny man is a breath of fresh air. And when Derek calls him daddy? Christ, he never thought something like that would feel so right.

Derek has serious daddy issues, and his name is Jackson. He's stubborn and controlling...and ever since Derek woke up in the silver fox's condo, he can't get Jackson out of his mind. Maybe because no matter how many times he throws himself at him, Jackson doesn't take the bait. And maybe because Jackson is the one person who sees him for who he really is. But Derek loves a challenge, and he's eager to rock Jackson's world.

Jackson isn't interested in a meaningless hookup. He wants the real Derek, not just the sassy jokester everyone else sees. But it's not easy for Derek to open up. He feels much safer guarding his heart. And Jackson needs to figure out the balance between living for himself and the mountain of responsibilities weighing him down. Derek and Jackson must find the common ground between hookup and commitment - if they can't own their issues and work together to overcome their faults, they could smother the flame between them that's just beginning to ignite.

Michael Pauley nailed Owning It!! ;)

I absolutely loved Owning It when I read the book and the narration was on point as well. The narrator, Michael Pauley, brought Derek and Jackson to life. It was perfect.

Derek! My favorite, I loved his story!

Derek is my favorite character from the Metropolis series, and he and Daddy Jackson were just smokin' hot perfection together. Michael Pauley did a wonderful job with the characters in this series! Perfect voices for Derek and Jackson!

If you haven't read the Metropolis series, what are you waiting for?! Each book is better than the last, and you'll fall in love with this group of sexy guys! While each story could stand on its own, I think you'd enjoy them more reading in order since they all appear in each others' stories.

Derek and Jackson's story

This is an enjoyable, light read/listen. I have just finished the four books in the series and enjoyed the read, and I loved Michael Pauley's narration. Worth a credit.

B+ rating...

My Review:
Overall: 4.0
Performance: 4.5
Story: 3.5

Confession: Even after reading/listening to this book, I still just do NOT get the Daddy kink. It's seriously creepy to me, but beyond that, this book was enjoyable.

For me, Jackson made this book. (And again, I probably would have liked Derrick more if it wasn't for the whole 'daddy' thing.) Jackson has never been with a guy. He's bisexual, but he fell in love with his ex-wife when he was only 16...and she got pregnant. So Jackson never got to be that young, experimental guy. Now he's 37 and exploring for the first time ever.

Derrick is the group's manslut, and pretty proud of it. He will sleep with anyone, pretty much. But Jackson definitely pushes all his buttons, so he chases Jackson big time. Jackson also isn't sure about the whole 'daddy' thing, but he finds himself intrigued by Derrick. And then he starts to realize there's much more to Derrick than he ever lets anyone know.

The real moments between these two made the book. There are truly some sweet ones and then when Jackson's real son, Zane, gets involved...I couldn't listen to the book fast enough.

This has been an interesting series. I'm looking forward to more from it. There were a couple of new characters introduced in this story that I hope are coming soon!

Nice story, great narration

Liked the character construction, the flow of the story was perfect to me. I am glad I get this series. The stories are written very well and what a steamy storyline.

Great narration too!

LOVED

I've been waiting for book. I Love Derek!! He's so much more than what he shows people. It took Jackson to show him he's more than what he shows and it's ok to need people. And Jackson needed Derek also.I want more

Every Boy needs a Daddy

Derek is has a smart mouth and is always up for a good time. Jackson is all business and responsibility. Then one night Derek gets in the wrong car leaving a club. They both find something they didn't even know they needed in each other. A very sexy and great listen - Michael Pauley's narration is perfect as always.

An enjoyable narration - especially Derek's

It's a shame that the last paragraph in chapter one wasn't included. There were another couple of minor things but it didn't spoil the overall narration.
