Publisher's summary

Davey’s Rule number 95: Daddy knows that every date or outing deserves a kiss.

Note: This mmm short book is a Davey’s Rules Novella and should technically be numbered as book 3.5 due to its shorter length.

Landon Prescott and his sweet little, Mikey, have a solid relationship. Nothing is missing, they are happily in love, and life couldn’t be better. An accident while shopping brings MIkey into the emergency room at the hospital where daddy Landon has privileges and Mikey finds himself fascinated by the same twitchy ER doc that has caught Landon’s eye once or twice.

Dr. Chris Kowalski is in his final year of residency and the future looks rosy...if he could just get a good night’s sleep and maybe be a little less clumsy. The problem? Aside from needing a better living situation, Chris needs time with his inner pup...time he hasn’t had in several years.

With a nudge from Davey and a couple other familiar faces, Chris finds himself at the club with the two men that he hasn’t been able to get off his mind. Will Mikey get the pup he begs his daddy for? And if so, how will it work if they decide to bring a third into an already solid relationship?

This mmm romance is number four in a series about not-so-perfect daddies, adorable “boys,” and one sassy brat with an insane list of rules. Grab your fan and tissues because this series comes with both a high heat advisory and all the squishy feels you’d want from a Susan Hawke book. Please be aware that this is a bonus book to the series, a 24k short novella rather than a full-length novel.

Amazing

I absolutely LOVED this audio. I haven't read the series, but I will for sure now.

All 3 MC's were so loving and caring and opened their hearts and home to Chris and it was a heartwarming story.

Even Pups Need TLC...💖🐕💖

Daddy Landon & little Mikey, take in a pup!🐕

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...😋😂

Daddy’s, littles and puppies oh my!!!

An adorable mmm story with the perfect mixture of daddies, littles and puppies! I loved the pairing of Mikey, Chris and Landon.
Michael Pauley did a great job with the narration. I especially enjoyed how he voiced Mikey.

Short and Sweet

Sometimes you need a quick story due to your busy life well this is the book you want to listen to. I love how Susan was able to introduce and provide a background for a new MC to this series that we had not seen before. It didn’t feel like he came from nowhere. I would love to read/listen to them develop the relationship further. As always Michael Pauley’s narration was great.

So sweet

Landon, Michael (Mikey), and Chris! What a trio! Landon and Michael are in a committed relationship- Daddy/little. Enter Chris- a wonderfully sweet doctor. This is a low, almost no angst story. Susan Hawke’s words with Michael Dean’s (Pauley) narration are a wonderful combo. Highly recommend.

Sweet and fun menage novella! 

Sweet and fun menage novella!  Narration truly brings story to life!   

i enjoyed this story as it shows a much deeper view of the committed couple Landon and Mikey. I As we meet Chris and see how their friendship moves forward and they are able to include him in their D's relationship. 

i enjoyed the dynamic their triad and it was fun to listen to them along the way.  I thought the interactions between Mikey, Topher and Landon were awesome!

Short but sweet three times over!

Rules for Growing was released as a freebie eBook by Susan Hawke, and as always, I loved reading this newest addition to the Davey's Rules series. The audiobook is once again narrated by the always awesome Michael Pauley, and this duo of Hawke and Pauley truly are one of my favorite things about listening to audio this year. This is also the first M/M/M story in the series, so it certainly had me curious as to how the narrator was going to handle three main characters instead of the usual, not that I was worried because obviously, Pauley has managed rather well with two main characters plus a slew of entertaining supporting characters.

Dr. Landon Prescott and his little, Mikey (aka Michael and whose last name I can't recall being mentioned throughout the series, but if it has, then let's just call this a blip in my brain), want for nothing in their relationship. They're happy and in love and are more than content with their life. When Mikey has an accident that lands him in the ER of the hospital where Landon is scheduled at, he meets Dr. Chris Kowalski, the resident in charge of his case. As promising as his career may be, Chris clearly needs a firm hand to help him find balance in his life. Who would have thought he would find exactly that in a Daddy and his little wanting a pup of their own?

I wonder if I'm ever going to come across an audiobook penned by Susan Hawke and voiced by Michael Pauley that I'm not going to love--and heck, I hope I never do!--because this latest one is yet another winner. Landon and Michael have always had such a wonderful relationship as evidenced whenever they make an appearance in the series, so bringing Chris into it could have tipped the scales one way or the other. I liked how these three struck a balance and this being the first book I've come across where there was a Daddy, a little, and a pup earns it bonus points for originality and fantastic execution. Not surprisingly, Rules for Growing gets five stars. ♥
