Andy’s a recent college graduate with a mountain of debt and a load of regret over earning a degree he’ll never use. When he takes a job at a local gay bar, he doesn’t expect the first person to catch his eye to be the man he’s been dreaming about since a chance encounter.
Joshua’s comfortable in his life. He has an amazing son who’s wise beyond his years, an ex-wife who’s one of his best friends, and a great job. Now, if only those closest to him would quit hounding him to start dating again after the divorce.
Joshua finds what’s been missing with the other people he’s tried dating the first time Andy slips up and calls him Daddy. What starts as a slip of the tongue could lead to what both men really need and want.
Hmmm, this story was nice but didn’t connect with me or draw me in like the Kinky in the City series did. I really like kink but I don’t like when the characters fly by the seat of their pants instead of having discussions and determining what the other wants and that is what it felt like these characters did. They talked a little at one point about what they want but it was less than a page and I didn’t feel as though it did the story any benefit.
This is loosely connected to the Kinky in the City series which bring Calvin and Frankie into the story a little but what rubbed me wrong about that is it made their relationship out to be the Daddy/Boy dynamic that Joshua and Andy have and that’s not what I remember from their story. I even went back an checked and it wasn’t like that.
Seeing the story from both of these characters’ points of view helps to understand them both. Gosh, Andy is adorable and I just wanted to hold him and tell him everything would be okay. He just continues to build things up in his head until he is thinking the worst which is one of the reasons he longs for a Daddy but I think the support Joshua gives goes even farther. Joshua has a strange family set up and Andy is the first person who doesn’t turn away when it comes up though I think at times it causes Andy undue stress. We get a quick look at who may be the next couple and I hope to continue reading the series and see if it picks up for me.
The cover art gives a cute visual of Andy.
