Summary

Everybody loves Pixie.

Everybody wants Pixie.

But Pixie needs a Daddy, and his heart is set on me.

I’m determined to resist him, for more reasons than I can count.

He’s too young for me. He’s my employee. And he’s everything I’ve been avoiding for half my life.

He’s vibrant. He’s sweet. He’s absolutely perfect, no matter how much I don’t want him to be.

I want nothing more than to take care of him, to protect him and pamper him...but how can I start something with him when I know I’ll eventually break his heart? Can I really be the Daddy Pixie needs?

Pixie is the fifth and last book in the Ballsy Boys Production series. It can be listened to as a stand-alone, but it’s more fun listening to the series in order.

Pixie was totally adorbs!

4.5 Stars!!!

Okay, so full disclosure here, I haven't really read/listened to the other books in the series prior to listening to Pixie. *blushes* Yeah, I know, bad Mari, still, I really enjoyed this one and the glimpses of the other Ballsy Boys we got, are enough that I'll definitely be listening to those pretty soon.

I've been really intrigued by Pixie since Nora started posting teasers back when K.M. and her were writing the book, and I was intrigued how a relationship between Bear and sweet Pixie would go and I loved it for the most part. I was kind of annoyed at Bear for most of the book, because he was so set in his ways and so fixated on the whole age thing. I nearly gave up on him. I mean 5 hours of him pushing Pixie away? Not nice and almost a case of too little, too late, if it hadn't been for Travis's intervention.

Now, Pixie, I loved. He was totally adorbs and just perfect for Bear. For as much as he needed someone to take care of him, he was just what Bear needed to live again and not just survive. He was there to support and care for Bear in a different way than Bear was there for him. And frankly, I loved them together, at least after Bear finally came to his senses. ;)

Kenneth Obi did a great job with Bear and Pixie and the rest of the guys and Travis. I had so much fun with their meddling and with the story, which was more emotional (and had me bawling like a baby a few times) than I expected.

I can't recommend this one enough to all readers who love the Daddy/boy dynamics!

Another Great Ballsy

I really liked the story between Bear and Pixie! Bear was driving me nuts with how hot and cold he was. I can't believe he went as long as he did without trying to have a relationship with anyone.

I was getting a little annoyed that they called Pixie an imp as much as they did. Elf was a little better. :) The narration by Kenneth Obi was great! I loved Bear's deep voice and it was exactly as I expected. Great timing.

Daddy for a Pixie...

I’m sitting here staring at this little flashing line in Docs unsure of where I should even start this review. Pixie, by K.M. Neuhold and Nora Phoenix, is the last book in the Ballsy Boys series. I have to be straight with you guys, I’ve been putting off writing this review until the last minute. That has nothing to do with the book itself because it was great! It has to do with the fact that I’ve come to adore the entire series, and writing this review feels like I’m saying goodbye. Shut up! I’m not crying, you’re crying!

For me, this book was pretty different than what I’d expected. The main characters, Eli(Pixie) and Maxwell(Bear) were great but different from what I thought they would be. Throughout the series, we’ve seen bits and pieces of Pixie and Bear’s personalities. To me, Eli always came across as the adorable, affectionate, and put-together little bottom. Instead, we learn that he’s a little, nix that, a lot irresponsible and in desperate need of a Daddy to keep him in line. On the flip side, Maxwell is fairly similar to what I’d imagined. He needs a boy in his life, but there are issues that prevent him from pursuing that sort of relationship earnestly. I didn’t expect his hang-ups to be so heartbreaking or for it to take so long for him to figure out what he was really afraid of.

I know it’s never good to assume things. I’ll be honest with you though, I was sure that Eli and Maxwell’s book was going to be a lighthearted read where a boy in need of a Daddy found exactly that, a Daddy. Instead, while reading/listening to this book I was totally floored by how deeply emotional it was. I won’t say that it was heavy with angst, but there’s a lot that will kick you right in the feels while you read their story. Now, don’t go thinking I didn’t love this book or that it let me down. You’d be so very wrong in thinking that. Pixie’s story was fantastic! It just had so much going on, and to be honest, I feel that it gave this book more depth than a lighthearted plotline would have which, in my opinion, made it better than expected.

We learn about Pixie’s life before moving to L.A., how he’d been a Boy to a previous Daddy that he loved but wasn’t in love with. We get a chance to learn about the tear-jerking past of Bear and why he’s not willing to start a relationship with Pixie despite the fact that he’s attracted to him. There are a couple of characters introduced that really help to bring the story together. Freddie and Travis play a HUGE part in how things turn out throughout this plot. We also get to meet a guy named Ryan, Travis’ best friend, and I sort of want to punch him in the nuts. But, ya know, you can’t love every character now, can you?

The narrator, Kenneth Obi, did a wonderful job with this book, just like he did with the other four. I enjoyed reading the ebook, but Ken really brought the story to life with his reading. I believe he does such a good job of giving each character a voice that really helps to distinguish each person. He also does a lovely job of really making you feel what the characters are feeling or making you feel the emotions in a scene.

As always, the writing was done beautifully. I’m not perfect when it comes to catching mistakes with composition. I can say that while reading the book I didn’t find anything noticeable that pulled me out of the story. Nora and Kyleen(K.M) did a fantastic job with this story. I’m super stoked that they have a spin-off with the Cocky Boys series.

To sum up this review I will say that I really, really enjoyed both listening and reading this book. Was the story what I was originally expecting book five to be? Nope. Was I disappointed by the story Kyleen and Nora published for Pixie? Not in the least. Would I recommend this book? Hell yes, I would! This story was great! If you like anything by K.M. Neuhold, Nora Phoenix, Kenneth Obi, and/or the previous Ballsy Boys books I would highly recommend finishing this series off with Pixie’s story.

Perfect story for Pixie and Bear <3

It's the book all Ballsy Boys fans have been waiting for and damn it was worth the wait!
Pixie and Bear fully done justice by Kyleen and Nora in this fifth book of the series. It's everything I could have wanted and more with readers having the chance to learn more about both men, their history's, interactions and what becomes of the two men and their undeniable attraction.
One of the best things is that we actually start in this book where Pixie was first hired which happened in book one, Rebel. We follow their relationship as things happen across the series and I find it fascinating reading scenes I've read before but from different perspectives.
My heart broke for both mean on occasion with what they experience, in the past and currently and as it says in the blurb, Pixie really does need the care of a Daddy. Everyone but Bear can see how them being together would be best but he is stubborn and standing by a promise he made.
Kyleen and Nora have given us such a fantastic and lovable group of men to learn and adore. This series is definitely a favourite and Pixie is absolutely the icing on the cake.
Cannot recommend this book and the series enough. I would say to read in order but it can be read as a standalone if wanted.
The narration provided by Kenneth Obi is absolutely perfect! Everything comes across just as it should, full of emotion, tension and sexual chemistry. There is one or two scenes that should come with a warning as it's not a good look to be out, walking the dog whilst crying..... So worth it though! Bear's voice is just gruff enough and Pixie couldn't sound more innocent except for his giggles and when trying to get his way with Bear.

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the top 5 narrators (so far) for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Daddy Bear and his pixie

Pixie is book 5in the Ballsy Boys series by K.M. Neuhold and Nora Phoenix and narrated by Kenneth Obi. This was my favorite in the series when I first read it and the same holds true for the audio. It feels a little slower than the previous books, but I think that has more to do with the fact that you have already heard many of these scenes from the other characters point of view, in the previous books. This probably wouldn’t have been as noticeable to me had I not been listening to the series back to back. All that being said, it’s still my favorite because I have adored Bear and Pixie from book 1 and I couldn’t wait to hear their backstories. I also couldn’t wait to hear it with Kenneth’s narration and boy did he deliver. The growly voice for Bear could not have been better and was exactly what I imagined when I first read it months ago. This was an excellent conclusion to the Ballsy Boys series, and I hope these characters continue to pop up in some of K.M. Neuhold and Nora Phoenix’s other books, as I’m not ready to let them go just yet.

Overall, the story is great, the characters are strong, yet also vulnerable, and the narration is outstanding. If you haven’t started this series yet, click add to cart immediately.

Emotional rollercoaster

Finally, Pixie get his HEA but first he has to get through his Daddy's defenses.
Seeing their struggle was difficult but so worth it in the end because I've become so invested in this series.
Kenneth Obi did an absolutely stellar job narrating this book.
He definitely put me through the wringer and I loved it.

Incredible.

This was one of my favorite BB stories and to hear it come to life was perfection. The voices of the characters were exactly how I envisioned and the emotion of this story was captured so well! The story itself, the small town Pixie trying to make it in the city, Bear struggling with his past and attraction, all of it was just SO good. A must read for sure! All of the stars!!

Wonderful end to an amazing series!

I am so sad to see this series end. I have adored the Ballsy Boys and the happy family they have all become over the course of these 5 books. Pixie was a very satisfying ending, with a wonderful Daddy/boy dynamic. It did take them a little too long to get together for my taste, I wanted Bear to get his head out of his butt a little sooner, but once he did their chemistry was off the charts! The last 25% of the book was by far my favorite, the payoff once they did get together was fabulous! The inclusion of all the boys and updates on their lives and how they were moving to their next phase brought tears to my eyes. I even shed tears for Travis and the relationship and purpose he brought into Bears life in his last few months. It was all done so well.
Pixies voice was adora ke and perfect! Ken Obi did a phenomenal job with him. Bears voice was a little too gruff for mybtaste, but I understand how it got his character. I thought Ken did a great job bringing a softer side out of Bear even while maintaining his gruffness. There were a lot of scenes withmtiple, past characters and the voices were always spot on, I really enjoyed the narration in this series!

A majestic telling of a great book

Pixie and Bear's story was the one I was anticipated the most, Pixie was truly like a child who needed a parent to guide him and the way in which Bear done that was true a masterpiece.

to bring to life this story with narration it would take a strong voice for Bear and a sweet voice for Pixie and this book done that in spades!!!! it filled into every part of the space around me till it was all I could hear and concentrate on.

better the second time

I read this book a year ago and loved it, so of course when I was offered the opportunity for an honest review to listen to the audio version I jumped at it--and I'm very glad I did. I absolutely adore this series and I think was most looking forward to book 5; however a year ago I when I read the book for the first time I was a little disappointed in the story development. I was really excited to read more of Pixie's back story and the angst that I assumed would follow, but the depth in this novel really is the development of Bear--which is not something I particularly prepared for originally. Now, however, I'm incredibly glad I had the opportunity to go back in for a listen and to appreciate it in a new light. I think that originality of focusing on Bear for character development is largely atypical, and I appreciate how a more difficult and sensitive topic was approached. I think that HIV in general, and the historical impact of HIV in the gay community isn't always acknowledged or addressed, so the fact that this was -- without really being a spoiler -- an issue from Bear's past is something slightly unique about this book and the approach. A year ago I really wanted the focus to be on Pixie and would have given the overall rating 4 stars, but today I have more appreciation for the unique approach and think this deserves a 5 star rating.

Additionally, I think the audio version of this book in particular really added something special to the story line. I really like Kenneth Obi's work, but his growly voice for Bear was an unexpected delight. The narration in these books only got better, and I loved it from book one. This one will definitely be a re-read/re-listen for me in the future. I'm glad I did because I appreciated it more the second time around.

Sexy Sweet

This one will make you laugh & cry, not to say isn't sexy too. The book is so good, plus & great history lesson. The narrator was able to pull of cute twink & silver daddy bear perfectly without it sounding forced.
