Why I read this book: I have enjoyed Ali Lyda’s Get Ink’d series.
He got on my nerves when I was his teacher…but I never knew he was such a brat….
I’ve been out of the kink scene for years, but when I’m invited to a meetup at Mischief, I can’t resist. It should be too far from home for anyone to recognize me. But it’s not. Hunter is a blast from the past: a student who failed my class twice and never stops acting out. But there’s more to the acting out than meets the eye, and the brat could use a daddy with a firm hand.
I’m the daddy for the job.
Meet Mischief, a kink-friendly community full of daddies, boys, puppies, jocks, and more! Get your first taste of the lifestyle when Carson and Hunters reconnect in this steamy m/m romance featuring daddy/brat age play, an age gap, and a healthy dose of enemies to lovers in the mix.

I enjoy Daddy/boy books. I like the age play element. Although it’s not for me, I can relate to the desire to give up being an adult sometimes and sink into the world where someone else is in charge. Someone else tackles all the troubles. Someone else does the heavy lifting. So this book should have been right up my alley. I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t a fave.
Carson is a professor who was outed by a student has being part of the BDSM lifestyle. When he comes across Hunter, that student, at a BDSM party, he kind of loses it. Not that I blame him. But the scene that followed wasn’t fun.
Hunter is having a rough go of it. His parents want him straight and religious. He is neither. He’s also not a very responsible young man. No job. No school (thanks to his previous antics). No sense of purpose. Carson sees that void and when Hunter asks for a relationship – or at least scenes – Carson decides to risk everything.
This book had everything I loved about Daddy/boy books but I never fully immersed into the story. But that’s not to say others won’t enjoy it. The writing was good, and there were a few twists. Will I read subsequent books? Yes. Mainly because I want to find out what happens to Hunter’s friend.
Richard Reynolds was a good narrator. He never pulled me from the story and I liked that Carson and Hunter had very different voices. Overall, a good audio and worth a listen.
