Summary

Flirting with his friend’s father was supposed to be just fun and games for Derek, but what happens when teasing leads to unexpected questions and some surprising curiosity?

Derek has known the unflappable Sean for years, and nothing ever gets a reaction out of the attractive older man. Nothing, that is, until Derek senses some unexpected curiosity from the man he always thought was straight. But who better than an adventurous switch to help Sean explore his wild side?

Sean knows better than to take Derek’s teasing seriously. There’s a reason he’s always called the impetuous younger man “the pest”. But when Derek’s playful banter leads to some interesting reactions, Sean has to decide what’s more important - hiding behind what he’s always assumed or finally getting to discover who he really was all along.

The story contains m/m sexual content, playful use of the term daddy, BDSM elements, spanking, a mischievous switch, a fun adult toy store, and a man who always thought he was straight.

Author’s note: There is no age play in this book, although Derek loves to drive Sean crazy about their age difference.

Sweet tale of love and discovering yourself

So we have met Derek and Sean before in Shaw’s writing - in Christopher and Ethan’s story and I’m glad that not only did they get their HEAs, but that their HEAs were together.

Derek is hilarious and a bit kooky - just right for helping Sean discover who he is and what he likes. The two men are so sweet together. I loved just how genuinely nice Sean is too, especially one particular scene with Derek’s best friend Jules. MA Innes often does cameos in their books - and this was no exception, I loved who popped up!

Kenneth Obi’s narration, as always, makes me feel like I’m experiencing the story for the first time and getting to know the characters all over again. A fantastic listen.

I really tried

I tried to enjoy this book. I really gave it until the last 45 minutes when I just knew that this book didn't do it for me. I'm sure others will love it, unfortunately not I. Kenneth Obi was its saving grace for me.
