Summary

Davey’s Rule #85: Daddy will always treat his boy like he's Daddy’s world…because that’s how it should be! 

This 258k bundle includes the first four books from this best-selling series loosely centered around Davey - a guy on the search for a perfect Daddy…and the insane list of rules he makes along the way. Each book begins with Davey on a not-so-perfect date that ends after the perspective Daddy breaks three rules he didn’t know existed. Each failed date goes on to find his own perfect match and often with Davey’s help, whether they want it or not. 

Rules to Follow 

Davey’s college roommate shows up on his doorstep after leaving an abusive relationship. This is Travis and Adam’s story. While Adam rediscovers his own strength while accidentally finding love in the arms of someone he never knew he wanted - a perfect, nurturing Daddy-type who will love him unconditionally. 

Rules to Break 

After taking a bet right out of Pygmalion and My Fair Lady, disciplinarian-type Daddy Bryan has ninety days to turn Preston - a bratty diva - into a polite guy that anyone would want to date. Bryan isn’t looking for a relationship while Preston wants to find true love. This should be a simple ninety-day bet with no problems, right? 

Rules for Santa 

Homeless, unemployed, and with no family who cares, Cameron Evans doesn’t dare wish for his holiday dreams to come true. All hope seems to be lost until he’s swept off his feet by the perfect Santa Daddy, who wants to show him what it’s like to have a Daddy who only wants to spoil a sweetie like him. 

Rules for Growing 

Established couple Landon and Mikey unexpectedly find the missing piece they weren’t even looking for when a lonely “pup” stumbles into their lives. 

This is the first of a two-volume set of bundles containing this complete 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 Susan Hawke’s books.

Nice mix of stories

Michael Dean has done a wonderful job with all the characters in these stories. The emotions are well handled, never over the top and the voices sound age appropriate. While Davey may never find his Daddy until he decides to trust his heart not his rules, the other couples and one threesome find just the cate and love they need. I'm a sucker for a Christmas dream come true romance, so Cameron's story was my favorite, but I will re-listen to all of these. They are sweet and low angst.

One of my favorite series

I love Davey. He's so sweet and snarky.
He also has very set ideas about what a daddy should be and how he should behave.
The series is a continuation of a set group of friends all finding themselves and their daddies in the process
with Davey trying desperately to find his own daddy and helping his friends.
Michael Ferraiuolo did an amazing job narrating such an eclectic group of characters.

Daddies and their boys

I love this series. Susan Hawke created a fun, diverse cast of Daddy Doms and Boys of all types who want to be looked after and some who want a good spanking.
Michael Dean does a good job of giving them all their own distinct voices. Recommended for all lovers of Daddy/ boy stories and this is excellent value with 4 books in the bundle for just 1 shiny credit.

Brilliant

In this first bundle we get the first books in this very special series, where Davey has an insanely long list of rules for Daddies. We meet some very special boys who get together with their Daddies with Davey’s help. With Michael Dean doing a fantastic job bring these characters to life. There is a second volume to watch out for.

What a wonderful bundle!

Davey is the best. I love his flirty, snarky and yet totally sweet heart. He has some rules for the Daddies in this stories. They are all so good. The boys are the sweetest and also bratty. The stories made me smile, laugh out loud, swoon and cry. I felt all the emotions. The books don’t overwhelm you and with the narrator’s voice you want to keep on listening for hours. I really need to know who is in store for Sammy. He is the one I felt the most for. Yet there are so many lovable characters and one awful “daddy” who needs to be stopped. Can’t wait for the next bundle!

Very entertaining

I’m so glad I listened to these stories. They came to life more for me than the voice in my head if I had read them. The set says Michael Dean is the narrator and I think he did a great job.
Rules to follow:
This is the first book I’ve listened to/read by this author. Right from the first paragraph I was laughing. Davey is a delight. His coming across as snarky in such a funny way is endearing. Davey has rules while looking for a daddy. I believe they were up to 85 in this story. Yet he also has this protective side that makes him behave like a daddy so there is that conflict in his personality. When his abused collage roommate shows up at his place he takes him in, finds him a job, a place to stay and introduces him to Travis. Adam and Travis’s story is almost fairytale like but sure is enjoyable. Also since Davey has had a date with Travis it is funny that Adam is the one that is attracted to him. I loved the ending where Davey even tries to date Bryan, Travis’s brother, and how that date went is a story of its own.
Rules to Break:
This is Preston and Bryan’s story. Preston broke my heart. He has no idea about normal everyday life. He has an attitude. When he makes a bet with Bryan things get real entertaining. Bryan has a full time job watching over Preston. I am still laughing every time I think about Preston sub contracting his house hold chores. Him riding on a bus again gave me more to laugh at. I really got a laugh how even though Bryan is suppose to be the one in charge, Preston ends up with keeping some of his previous lifestyle. I was surprised that there isn’t much about Davey’s rules in this story. Michael Dean really gave feeling to these characters. I never would have enjoyed the book half as much as I did with his narration.
Rules for Santa:
Each of the stories have held my heart for different reasons. Some because of the fun and laughs I got. This one broke my heart from the beginning. Cameron is totally without ego. He is on the point of no return when Scott actually almost falls upon him. From the beginning I felt the warmth in Scott and the need in Cameron. I have to say there are quite a few laughs in this story also. Since Scott is Davey’s dad I would have expected no less. Davey is a character on his own level and when someone is getting involved with his dad, it makes for entertaining actions on Davey’s part. I really enjoyed the comparison Scott made when shopping between Cameron and Davey. I love this story.
Rules for Growing:
This is a novella so I don’t feel the characters got as deeply developed. Maybe it’s because I’m not into puppy play but this story just didn’t do much for me. I think it was done too quickly to take a relationship and change it so much. I have to say the one thing I really enjoyed is the reading of Davey’s Rules. I’m glad I got to listen to the narration of this or I’m afraid I would have liked it less.

Four Book Bundle

RULES TO FOLLOW
Travis and Adam were a terrific introduction to this series. I admired Adam's strength as he leaves his violent ex and makes his own way in a new life. He wants and needs to stand on his own feet but he's also smart to accept the help of those around him. Travis is the epitome of a caretaker. He desperately wants to make Adam's life smoother, removing obstacles and problems. I liked that he stands aside until Adam asks, letting Adam dictate the stride of their relationship.
The side characters are a bonus; especially drama king Davey. The view of so many different types of relationships in the club kept Travis and Adam's unique as opposed to cliche.

RULES TO BREAK
Preston's change from a spoiled child to a caring thoughtful adult was a wonderful journey. Bryan's changes, while not as dramatic, were just as noteworthy. I liked that Preston owned his misbehavior, willingly took his punishments, and acknowledged that he deserved them. I liked, even more, that Bryan acknowledged his own screwups and didn't hesitate to not only fix them but to apologize. Preston gains friends and a real family as he tames his out-of-control behavior and lets people see the real person he is inside. His friendship with Bronson showed him at his best and made me proud of him.


RULES FOR SANTA
Lots of super sweet moments. Scott's first sighting of Cameron puts him instantly into protective mode. Cameron's had it tough but he manages to fall into the right lap. Poor Davey watches his father choose his own 'boy' and is not impressed by having to listen to them be in love. The horror of knowing anything about his dad's romantic life makes him shudder and gave me a few laughs I do like the steps Davey takes to make sure his father and Cameron come together and make it the best Christmas for all of them.

RULES FOR GROWING
I so enjoyed that we get to see Landon and Mikey inter into a new relationship. I adore that they are a long-established couple that are deeply satisfied with their relationship. Meeting Chris brings them a new element to consider and I was impressed that they openly communicate about all the elements of each step long before taking any. Chris obviously needs to find his place and is just as surprised to find how perfectly they all fit together as Mikey and Landon are. As much as I've enjoyed getting to know Mickey, learning about Michael was enlightening. I loved that Landon fills the role of Master and Daddy, allowing Mikey and 'Tofur' to be their alternative selves while home.
Highly recommended author and series

Audiobook: Clear and smoothly told.

Rules for Santa where Cameron finds his perfect Santa Daddy. Rules for Growing which was my favorite in this boxset with Landon and Mikey who find room in there family for pup Christopher. The narration was amazing Michael is amazingly talented.

Great set of stories

I absolutely love this series and this bundle is well worth the credit!
Each story is unique and they are all a delight. I’m especially partial to the last short story with Mikey, Landon and the addition of their pup ChrisTOPHER.
You can’t go wrong with Michael Dean as the narrator. He always does a great job with bringing audios alive!

great compilation

These books are good and full of sweetness and fluff. I love Susan Hawke's books and Michael Dean is amazing as always. He is a great narrator and but these two together and you will always have something worth a listen. It's always good to have books in a series for one long listen back to back. And Davey is such a hoot! I can't wait until he finds his perfect man.

Rules for Growing:
This is a short story bringing Mikey & Landon‘s story to life. It is a daddy/boy kink and puppy play. I’m really not into puppy play stories so this wasn’t really my cup of tea, but I liked Mikey & Landon from the other books. After a shopping accident sends Mikey to the ER this is where things start to heat up with Chris. The characters are very likeable with a lighthearted tone.

Michael Dean really gave feeling to these characters. I received an ARC of this bundle for my honest review.

a must listen to

oh my gosh this was wonderfully narrated. I I'm so glad got to listen to this wonderful story it had laugh out loud moments that's also so sad points for the storyline that's a small part of the story .It can be listen to individually but I highly recommend listening in order characters developed throughout the story book
