An Alisa Review: Rules for Santa (Davey’s Rules #3) by Susan Hawke

Rating:  4 stars out of 5

Rule #18: Daddy’s boy will always believe in his Santa Daddy.


Homeless, alone, and now jobless, Cameron Evans is lost… until he’s found after a prominent local attorney literally trips over him when the boy is passed out from dehydration.

Scott Hendrickson has two things in life: his job as an assistant district attorney, and his son Davey. Other than that, he lives alone in a house that’s too big, too empty, too… lonely.

It’s not just Cameron’s life that might change for the better when Scott takes him in. Scott can provide material things and security, but Cameron returns the favor by breathing fresh air into Scott’s stale life.

Two men who need each other… one magical holiday season. Could a little Christmas magic be all that’s needed to bring the biggest gift of all? Maybe Cameron doesn’t need a Sugar Daddy… because he already has a Santa Daddy.

This is the third book in a series about not-so-perfect Daddies, adorable “boys,” and one sassy brat with an insane list of rules. Get ready for all the squishy holiday feels you’d want from a Susan Hawke book.

Oh gosh, this story was all sweetness between Scott and Cameron and throw in the Christmas excitement it was just a perfect combination.  Scott has thought he was too old to find that special someone but Cameron just makes him want to hold him and give him everything he could wish for.  Cameron just needs someone or something to help him get back on his feet and Scott gives him more than he could ever hope for.

I loved how Scott was even protective of Cameron when they had barely met in the restaurant but went full bore when he found him out back.  It was refreshing to see him break away from his crazy work hours and embrace Christmas so much more than usual.  I was happy that Cameron gave him a reason to but also someone to take care of and Cameron wanted to take care of and love him just as much in return.  I was glad that they were able to figure their own stuff out and at times wanted to knock Davey in the head because he was being a hypocritical brat more than usual.

The cover art by Cate Ashwood is great once again and I think the visual of Scott is perfect.

Series: Davey’s Rules #3

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
