Why Erryn read this book: I love origin stories.
Davey’s Rule Number 53: Daddy shouldn’t be afraid to let his boy top.
Before Davey came to work at Daddy’s Lap and began that crazy list of rules, his future bestie, Sammy, was already living happily ever after with his own Daddy-dom. From the moment they met over a gas pump to the day they were legally able to wed, leather Daddy Raphael Robustelli adored his linebacker-sized boy. This is their love story, as seen through a series of six short vignettes. Witness the moment they met, see the first time Davey came to the club, and so much more. This is a short 20k volume, filled with emotion and backstory for the entire series.
Note: This is not a full-length book and does not contain a new couple. This can be listened to as a stand-alone but will be most enjoyed by those who have read the series.
This is the sixth book 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.
Davey’s Rules has quickly become one of my favorite series. I was gutted in the second book when Raphael died of a heart attack. He was a secondary character, but knowing he was leaving behind a young husband and two beautiful children broke my heart.
This book goes back a number of years to the moment when Sammy and Raphael met. Through a series of vignettes, we get a feel for the men and how their relationship develops. Daddy kink indeed. From the gas pump to surrogacy to Daddy’s Lap to legal marriage, the story unfolds. The high point of meeting Davey, to the low moments in the hospital, there was a little of everything. Some backstory was filled in, some lingering questions answered, and some little gems like how Samantha Jade got her name provided. I’m getting teary thinking about the final vignette. I mean, I knew Raph was going to die, but it didn’t make it any easier to endure. Man, if you’re anything like me, BRING TISSUE.
I have the final book set to go, and I’m glad it released on audio so quickly after this one so I won’t have to wait. I will leave you with this little nugget: “just because you’re on top, doesn’t mean you’re in control.”
Another shout out to Michael Dean who has brilliantly helmed this series. He and Ms. Hawke are magic together. Can’t wait to listen to the next one.
