    A good solid romance but it felt a bit flat 3.5* I usually really enjoy a Daddy/boy romance so I'm not sure why this one didn't work as well for me. Part if it, I think, is that unlike the other books in this series, Kenn and Warwick aren't involved in the investigations which provide the main thrust of the long running arc. That meant that we were in other people's heads for a lot more of this book so we can catch up with development in the terrorism investigation.

That meant that we were in other people's heads for a lot more of this book so we can catch up with development in the terrorism investigation. Also, as the timeline overlaps slightly with the other books, we get an element of Seth and Coulson's story we've already seen in their book. Put it all together and I just never totally connected with Kenn and Warwick as a pairing like I hoped I would. Both of them are fully fleshed out characters and I felt so badly for Kenn, enough that I believed he would latch onto Warwick. I'm just not sure I bought into his sudden realisation that he wanted to be Kenn's "Daddy" rather than just a loving partner. There's way more telling instead of showing in this book and everyone it seemed got in on the conversation about whether they should have a relationship! Some of it felt really awkward and stilted. Still, there's good movement on the big plot and I'm guessing the President is going to be the subject of the next book, potentially with his new "body man". Or possibly one of the CIA agents and the new forensic accountant. Either way things look like they're moving closer to discovering who's been behind all the attacks and why.

    4 stars audio. Love John Solo but he is lousy with foreign accents. His attempt is super cringy. 2 stars story, because daddy kink, OTT sex talk and fisting!! Ugh! I give up on this series. 1, 2 and 3 were awesome because they didn't involve any form of kink. 4 stars audio. Love John Solo but he is lousy with foreign accents.

    I love this series! 💜 This is book 5 (they need to be read in order because there’s a strong sub-plot running through them all) but if low angst, high cuteness, age gap, first time, Daddy/boy is your thing (not mine tbh, but Kenn and Warwick were very sweet), then this is the one for you 🥰. 3.5 ✨✨✨

    I guess the best way to describe my feelings towards this book is that I'm disappointed. I didn't like the romance for several reasons, the pacing didn't work for me at all and I feel like the deeper we get into the series, the harder it is for the book to balance the romance, the suspense plot and all the different characters.

I didn't like the romance for several reasons, the pacing didn't work for me at all and I feel like the deeper we get into the series, the harder it is for the book to balance the romance, the suspense plot and all the different characters. Let's start with the romance. Initially, I was really excited about this book, because I liked Kenn as a character and I was excited to see him and Warrick navigate their relationship and exploring the Daddy/boy dynamic between them. I'm really sad to say that I didn't see them develope their relationship at all. I hate nothing more than books that TELL me how characters feel about each other, instead of showing me. I genuinely can't believe how many scenes this book had where Warrick and Kenn would talk to OTHER characters about their relationship, instead of showing the reader the actual relationship between them. At first there is Seth warning Warrick that Kenn is getting too attached to him. Then Warrick talks to the President about his friendship with Kenn, then there are Milan and Denali talking to Kenn about the relationship, THEN there is Milan talking to Warrick about the Daddy/boy dynamic, that, mind you, Kenn and Warrick haven't even talked about yet. Then Milan talks to Kenn about the Daddy/boy dynamic, then there's Warrick, I shit you not, asking the President of the United States if he can have a Daddy/boy relationship with his SON... that he still hadn't even brought up to Kenn. I'm still baffled with how much time this book spends talking about a developing relationship that we don't get to see. I wanted to see Warrick and Kenn together and not read about them talking to other people about their relationship. Because we barely get to see Kenn and Warrick together for the majority of this book, it was almost jarring to see them interact romantically towards each other and I didn't feel any chemistry between them at all. My lack of investment in the romance wasn't helped by the fact that it was interrupted every other chapter with all kinds of other povs and the continuation of the suspense plot. I'm still invested in the suspense plot, but I felt like in this book, more than any of the others, it really pushed the romance aspect of the plot to the side. I feel like the more characters get introduced into the series, the more the books lose their focus. I feel like this wasn't Kenn and Warrick's book. It was a continuation of the main plot of the series, with a side plot of Kenn and Warrick's romance. And just like the previous book in the series, the ending was really abrupt. I'm definitely going to finish this series, when the last two books come out, now that I've come so far, but I'm not all that excited about it anymore, unfortunately.

    Nora Phoenix is one of my favorite writers and I really don’t like it that my rating is low. But this book was my least favorite of all her books. I’ll try to explain why. I was looking forward to Kenn’s story. He is such a sweetheart. But the relationship between him and Warrick took a complete backseat in this story. There was no chemistry, no building up heat between them. It felt all very, very passive. It was basically a lot of tell and no show.

Kenn and Milan. Warrick and Seth. Kenn and Denali. Warrick and Milan. Kenn and Del. Del and Warrick. So much talking instead of showing. It was boring. Why not more scenes with Warrick and Kenn exploring their attraction and preferences? I was more invested in the plot, although not a lot of huge or exciting things happened there. But that’s what it felt like: the plot with snippets of Warrick and Kenn in between. I admire the plot because it is complicated as hell, but I think the other books were better balanced between the main couple and the plot. I loved the scenes with the other couples, but when the hottest scenes is the one with an already established couple and not with Warrick and Kenn, something went wrong IMO. I have a feeling the next (and probably last book) is going to be about Del and the still unknown Issa. I hope it will be sizzling hot between those two and the plot will come to an exciting, suspenseful and action packed end!

    Even though this story focuses on Kenn and Warrick, you still get more of the larger story arc as well. I even learned to like Milan! AND that’s a miracle in of itself lol. We learn more about the conspiracy and what was behind it all. More layers and actions are revealed. Who was REALLY behind the curtain manipulating everything..... We get a peek in on other characters from past books in the series, which I loved. Coulson and Seth have a seriously HOT scene..like HOT 🤜🏻.

I’m SO excited for the next book... I’m already speculating on who the next couple will be... maybe Branson??🤔🤔

    I honestly didn't enjoy much of this book at all. I think I truly only read the first half, and I skimmed the rest. Mildly spoilery rant under the spoiler. (view spoiler)[ Kenn and Warrick were supporting characters in their own story. We would get a chapter maybe 2 of them. Then it was back to established couples. Including sex scenes. If I wanted Coulson to fist Seth with Asher's instruction that should have been in their book.

The short amount of time Kenn and Warrick are actually on page, they're not together for a lot of it. They're talking to other people about how to proceed with their relationship. Kenn and Warrick have their first date around 70%. Then we get to something else for too long. Then our "Main Characters" are back and exchanging I love yous. Then we return to everyone else and every single time we see Kenn and Warrick they're having sex of some kind. There was no actual relationship development on page. To say I'm frustrated is an understatement. I went back and looked. Book 1 has 365 pages and it's focusing on ONE couple and the very beginnings of the suspense line. Book 5 is 295 pages. By now we have FOUR established couples and a suspense plot that gets more complicated. The only way this series can continue on is if the books are longer or the author gives up updating the established ones. This was rushed and I can't remember the last time I felt like I wasted my time reading a book. Especially with an author that I consistently give 4-5 stars to. I truly don't think I'll be continuing on with this series. I'm so happy I didn't purchase this book early like the author offered and waited for it to release on KU. I would have been even more upset to have wasted money along with time. (hide spoiler)]

    It should be no surprise that Nora wrote another book that hit me in the feels. I can't wait for more. The individual stories in this series are great and the overarching plot is complicated and keeps another layer of intrique to everything.

    First Daddy book I’ve ever read and Daddy kink is not my thing. Kinda had to read this thought because I’m already so invested in the ongoing plot through this entire series. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. Knocking off a star for the daddy kink, mostly because whilst I love Kenn, it made him seem really childish to me compared to Warwick and I found that weird paired with Kenn calling Warwick Daddy all the time and not just during sex 🤷‍♀️ I understand daddy kink a bit more now tho First Daddy book I’ve ever read and Daddy kink is not my thing.

If you read the last book, you will know there were two more tragedies and in this story, it picks up where all are trying to recover.

If you read the last book, you will know there were two more tragedies and in this story, it picks up where all are trying to recover. The President and his son the most, I think, but all are affected in their way and it's wearing them all down. This story is mainly about Kenn and his journey, but one thing about these stories, is all the characters are included because they are all involved. By either relation, friendship, or because they are staff at the White House. And in those close quarters, even with the White House being large, you still can't help but form some bonds. But in this case, for Kenn, it's the opposite. He was his Mama's boy and now he's lost. He had one person he thought of as a friend, and although they still are friends, things have changed. And being on lockdown is not helping a bit. With Professor Warrick coming in, it gave him a bit of freshness he needed. But I hate what he's had to go through and now having to go through even more and he's finally discovering who he really is and what he is in life. And the one person he feels he can get what he needs it from is running scared. And I get it. I do. It's not easy being a President's kid. Even as easy going as Del is, it's complicated. I think the funniest part for me in this whole book has been Milan's role in everything lately. He's had to be up close and personal in things he's not good at and it's making him all weird lol. It really is funny. But what I love as well, is even though he had to be told, he finally got what he personality and his ways were doing to Kenn and he set it straight quick. Not just with Kenn, but with Warrick. And with with Del for both of them. This is a hard story. The case is still being dealt with, the grief alone is overwhelming, but what has been the most amazing thing, is how that inner circle has closed ranks and everyone is having to grow up the hard way, but they are growing. They are seeing things in ways they never have before. Learning things of each other that are bringing them on deeper levels. And in the sadness of it all, there is hope. It's barely there, to be honest. But it is there. They all know that no matter how hard things are, life has to go on. And you either move forward or let it go. I'm hoping from the hints in the last part of this book, that things are about to get interesting in the next one. Because if Calix has done what I think he has, (and he has), life in the White House is about to get even more interesting. And I'm waiting to see how this is all going to play out. I almost feel like Milan at this point. Where I just sit back and watch with glee at what's coming. And I have a feeling Milan will be doing just that. The little turkey lol. Oh how the sparks will fly. Make sure you guys are reading these and in order. That's a must. Yes, there are cliffhangers to a point but as bad I hate them, it's worth it in the end. This has been a hard series but a dang good one and worth every page.

    The good + Del. Goddamn, that man is the best father a boy could wish for. His unwavering support for his son was just amazing + Warrick going through the right channels to make sure his relationship with Kenn would not be a secret affair (at least within the White House, for the world it's obviously a secret) + (view spoiler)[ "Good morning, Mr. President. I'd like to be your son's Daddy, pretty please and thank you." (hide spoiler)] + The friendships between everyone in the inner circle (Milan: The good + Del.

Del: "That's still President Asshole for you.") + Seth and Coulson finally fulfilling Seth's need + Kenn having the freedom and privacy to explore even in these difficult circumstances + Milan's growth + Del and Milan showering Kenn with love after realizing why he delayed coming out to them The neutral o I'm a little on the fence about Milan's request for Kenn not to call him Uncle anymore. I understand with all the relationships between everyone it's kind of weird, but I think the timing was really bad. He basically asked Kenn to not call him Uncle anymore at the first opportunity after Kenn's mom / Milan's sister died, implying Milan didn't want to be his uncle anymore now that their blood tie died. I know it's not like that, but I couldn't help but noticing that and it rankled o I think I lost interest in the overlapping story. I didn't even remember most of the names and organizations mentioned in the case, and didn't really care enough to figure it out The bad - Only like 50 percent of the book was about Warrick and Kenn. The rest was about the other men of the inner circle making progress on the case, which is necessary for the continuity of the series, but kind of took away from the developing romance between the MCs. It often felt like the actual MCs were an afterthought - Warrick talking about himself as Daddy in the third person - Warrick talking about himself in the third person and first person within the same sentence, that just really sounded awful ("Come on my cock so Daddy can feel your hole squeeze tight around me") - (view spoiler)[I have a feeling a new love interest of Del is covertly being introduced, and I really don't like that. Let the poor man grieve in peace. Not every gay/bi/pan man in and around the White House needs a boyfriend (hide spoiler)] I still give this book four stars, because I love Nora's books in general and the romance was really sweet. However, this is definitely my least favorite of this series so far, and I really considered only giving three stars to this installment.

    I just finished this lovely story of Kenn, the son of the President in Nora Phoenix's delightful series. Kenn is a 22-year-old shy virginal scholar who falls in love with the tutor hired to help stay abreast with his college level work while his dad is suddenly made POTUS after an assassination. Warrick is the tutor, a former professor, and military vet wounded in combat. Mid thirties, muscular, he has a limp from injuries to his back and leg and he's perfect for Kenn. So perfect, in fact, that I just finished this lovely story of Kenn, the son of the President in Nora Phoenix's delightful series. Kenn is a 22-year-old shy virginal scholar who falls in love with the tutor hired to help stay abreast with his college level work while his dad is suddenly made POTUS after an assassination. Warrick is the tutor, a former professor, and military vet wounded in combat. Mid thirties, muscular, he has a limp from injuries to his back and leg and he's perfect for Kenn. So perfect, in fact, that they discover they want to have a Daddy/boy relationship. Always attuned to his son's needs, Del Shafer doesn't hesitate when speaking to both his son and Warrick and he gives both his blessing for their relationship. Meanwhile, the investigation into the Pride bombing and to the former president's assassination is still going on and another death occurs in the White House. Seth and Coulson are heading the investigation team and burning out, as are other key characters including Del's brother-in-law and his partners (yes, menage!) and, of course, we touch base with Levar and Henley and with Calix and Rhett. This is not a stand alone novel and the series must be read in order because the drama is getting heavier as we get nearer to solving the puzzle of who's behind the killings. We also get more couple time, especially for Seth and Coulson, and get to be present when Kenn undergoes his sexual discovery. The sex scenes were spot-on, and like Goldilocks, I can say they were just right. Not too many and not too outlandish. I'm looking forward to more in this series. My only down with this story was the dynamic between Kenn and Warrick was missing something. Maybe because Warrick had never been a Daddy before? IDK. It just felt a little off. But Kenn is such a sweetie, I definitely wouldn't want to see anyone miss his story.

We had to wait for their first kiss, but it was 100% worth it! I had ALL the butterflies when they finally got together!!! The other thing I simply adored in this book was all the open and honest communications.  Not just between Kenn and Warrick, but between so many of the characters we've already met along the way. Milan was fantastic here as the caring uncle and the no nonsense best friend. But Del stole the show for me. What a simply wonderful human being. The conversations between him and Kenn made my heart swell! The way he treated his son was pure gold. This is not a stand alone. You need to read the series in order. The characters from the first 4 books play heavily here. The relationships, friendships, and comraderie was here in spades between everyone and I loved every second of it. We got some really nice moments with everyone together and some quiet, intimate moments with characters from previous books.  The continuous suspense and mystery plot evolved some more as we are getting closer to the conclusion of the series. I cannot wait for the next book, this series has just been incredible!

    4 stars The start was a bit shaky to me. I only pushed on because I’m invested in the larger story arc and in a way I’m glad I kept at it because I was smiling and happy as a clam as the story progressed ☺️ Haven’t been up to reading much lately so this was a lovely story to get back into reading 😃

    Ok so I realize that I just don’t alway like the daddy/boy thing. And I really didn’t care for that here. I found Kenn so beyond uninteresting and immature and way too childish for my interest. But. I skipped all that and am INVESTED in the overarching storyline. And I will guess the next book will be Del and his body man Issa? I hope that’s a good one. Loved seeing all the other guys in this book (it was what kept me going)

    Superb story in this series. Kenn and Warrick are beautiful together and learning together on what they both have lost and the needs they both desire. We do see characters from the previous books so I recommend you read from the start. I did receive an Arc for a review.

    Not a fan. Let me explain… I do not enjoy reading “Daddy” romance books. I only read this one because it is part of a series with a continuing political suspense plot/cliffhanger. If I knew that the series was going in this direction, I probably wouldn’t have started it. I’m a firm believer that an author should stick close to the original type of couple if each book ends with a cliffhanger or there’s a storyline that continues throughout the series, or warn the readers in the book 1 blurb what t Not a fan.

I’m a firm believer that an author should stick close to the original type of couple if each book ends with a cliffhanger or there’s a storyline that continues throughout the series, or warn the readers in the book 1 blurb what type of romance will be present in each book so that they can decide if they want to start the series. (Side note, I read a series where the first 15 books were M/F and the 16th was M/M. That ticked a lot of people off. I was fine with it but the M/M book wasn’t very well written.). The first three books were M/M with a little side of “kink”. Book 4 was M/m/m and had more D/s and kink than previous. This book would have been better without the “Daddy” element. The author does a good job of explaining the difference between a Dom/sub and a Daddy/boy relationship. The sub feels the need to serve his Dom whereas a “boy” wants to be taken care of by his Daddy. Besides the use of the word “Daddy” and age play (THERE IS NO AGE PLAY IN THIS BOOK. If there was, I’d stop reading at that point.), my biggest issue with this genre/kink is the whiny/bratty “boy” who can’t make adult decisions for himself and acts like a spoiled teenager. This book didn’t really have that issue, but it had others. STOP READING IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE PREVIOUS BOOKS… This book starts before the death of Kenn’s mother, and covers the early part of Kenn and Warrick’s student/teacher relationship. There is a lot of overlap with the events in book 4 but we’re inside Kenn and Warrick’s heads this time (but still in 3rd person POV). As such, there are several chapters from previous MC’s POVs (still 3rd person) in order to advance the conspiracy plot. I’m fine with this, while other reviewers were not. MILD SPOILERS BELOW… The first conversation between Warrick and Kenn’s dad was necessary in order for Warrick to alter his professional relationship with Kenn to include friendship. This conversation took an odd turn but I won’t say how. The second conversation between Warrick and the president was unnecessary but fine until Warrick explicitly stated what type of relationship he wanted with Kenn. Seriously, what the hell?! Completely ridiculous and cringeworthy. The “Daddy” part isn’t even really mentioned until about 60% and then the term is overused. I truly don’t understand why their relationship had to be defined that way if Warrick was never interested in it before. He could take care of Kenn and help him navigate his first relationship without the “Daddy” part (similar to book 3 but with rules). Just FYI, Seth’s secondary kink is mentioned again in this book (and it is explained why he needs it) and their is a scene that goes into detail. That chapter can be skipped if it makes you uncomfortable. Overall, I was able to get through the book even though I do not enjoy the “Daddy” kink. There were some editing issues and it was slow and unrealistic at times but it was worth reading just for the small pieces of information to the overall conspiracy. Hopefully the next book is better.

    I have to admit that I wasn’t as excited about this book as I had been about previous installments to this series. I was worried that with the focus on Kenn (the President’s son) and Warrick (Kenn’s tutor) that the bigger political plot would take a back seat to the developing romance because these men are not intimately involved with that particular mystery. But I should know by now to have more faith in Phoenix because this story was just as intense as everything that has come before.

But I should know by now to have more faith in Phoenix because this story was just as intense as everything that has come before. Phoenix goes back in time a bit to explore the full meeting between Kenn and Warrick from their points of view, which also lets the readers see some previously dramatic events in a newly emotional light. In addition, Phoenix does not shy away from continuing various elements of the external plot from the perspective of other characters we know and love. She is talented at choosing which point of view to highlight for the most impact, such as featuring press secretary Levar for a particular scandal breaking and (still my personal favorites) Seth and Coulson for some nitty-gritty continued investigative work (and a special bonus surprise toward the end). Oh yeah, there’s still a romance in here, too! Even though Daddy kink will never be my go-to to read about, I do enjoy following characters as they realize how to be true to themselves, and Kenn and Warrick have that in spades. Once again, I made a mistaken assumption that Phoenix immediately upends in how incredibly loving and supportive Kenn’s family (and extended family) are about his developing relationship with Warrick. Honestly, everyone needs a Milan in their life, and I lost track of how many times I said “Oh, Milan” out loud (in various tones from sweetness to exasperation to hilarity). This book is a solid installment to this epic series, and while movement does happen in the external political suspense plot, I have no idea how close to the end we are. Phoenix drops clues at the end regarding additional relationships to explore in this series, and I will definitely be along for the ride.

    As you probably know by now, Nora Phoenix’s White House Men series must be read in sequence. Care is NOT a standalone. PSA over. As the fifth installment in this fascinating series, I will admit that I set the bar for Care pretty high. This Daddy/boy romance between Kenn, the President’s son, and Warrick, his professor/tutor was enjoyable, but I didn’t love it. The writing, as per usual, is excellent. The details and research that Ms. Phoenix clearly put into the terrorist plot continues to show As you probably know by now, Nora Phoenix’s White House Men series must be read in sequence.

The details and research that Ms. Phoenix clearly put into the terrorist plot continues to show through. For this book, that was the best part but there wasn’t enough of it for my taste. Warrick and Ken didn’t really work for me as a couple, although their characters individually are quite endearing. Ken came across as way too young and needy and Warrick didn’t seem the Daddy type at all so when he adopts that persona, it’s very abrupt. The story doesn’t solely focus on Kenn and Warrick, though. Like the other books in the series, we get multiple narrators, which is pretty much a necessity to keep the plot moving. These characters are all connected by blood or past relationships, but in this book, it got to be a bit incestuous (figuratively speaking). These men clearly believe they have the right to be involved in the most personal aspects of each other’s lives, which is confirmed when the other men allow it. The conversations that take place, … well some of them just boggled my mind with the level of detail requested and shared about their sexual preferences and activities. The men also don’t seem to have any privacy or even think that privacy is necessary. So overall, while I enjoyed the book, it was a bit of a letdown especially compared to the excellent first four installments.

    Another entry into the continuing White House men series - this time focusing on Kenn and Warrick. Since our main characters aren’t involved in the ongoing investigation that forms the backdrop of the series, we get lots of chapters told from the POV of previous characters. I loved this, it really makes it feel like a cohesive series, and it is good catching up with some other characters.

The first part of this novel occurs simultaneously with book #4, so there aren’t any big surprises with regards to the suspense plot. We mostly get to see more of how various characters deal with the death from the previous book. I enjoyed Kenn and Warrick’s relationship for the first 70% of the book, when they were getting to know each other and developing a “friendship” in difficult times. It felt like things just moved very suddenly from there. Warrick and Kenn enter a daddy/boy relationship, which is not my cup of tea in general, but there were a few things that especially made me uncomfortable: 1) Warrick asks permission from Kenn’s father before he has even talked to Kenn himself. I get that he’s the president of the United States, but still. 2) As soon as Warrick and Kenn are in a relationship, Warrick’s name rarely appears in Kenn’s POV chapters. The word “daddy” is probably used on average once per sentence. 3) Other characters (including Kenn’s father) also immediately start referring to Warrick as Kenn’s daddy. Overall a pretty enjoyable read, but daddy/boy relationships aren’t my thing and this one gets into it very suddenly. Left me wanting more chapters from other POVs and less chapters from Kenn and Warrick’s POV honestly.

    Full disclosure I have been waiting for Kenn’s book since...I met Ken. He always had a bit of a kinky air about him, so the daddy thing makes a lot of sense. It’s a bit of a slow burn, which makes sense given the sexual/romantic development level of kenn and the constraints of the situation, but at times did border on too slow. Also, unlikely many successive stories with a common arc, this book had several chapters from the perspective of couples from previous books.

I understand that given the characters in this book, that was necessary to move the over arching plot but at times felt sort of klunky. I loved Kenn though, and I felt his pain throughout the book and think the relationship he developed was perfect. I can’t really ultimately see him with anyone else, so overall I give it 4+ to 5 stars. Honestly, I was skeptical about this series initially and likely wouldn’t have read it right away without getting an arc, but now I just can’t wait for the next one and will likely end up buying all of them anyway. And the audible versions, because let’s be honest, John Solo is going to be amazing with Ken and Warrick.

    First of all, I love this series as it is a perfect mix between suspense, romance, politics ... and I loved all the couples we saw till now. That said I wondered before reading this how this one will work out but I was really looking forward to it. Kenn and Warrick are a great couple in the end, but the way there is just not really satisfying and I had some troubles with some steps. So, I think the details of a relationship should be discussed between the pair and not between one MC and everyone First of all, I love this series as it is a perfect mix between suspense, romance, politics ... and I loved all the couples we saw till now.

So, I think the details of a relationship should be discussed between the pair and not between one MC and everyone else. Especially not before even a kiss happened. It also seemed a bit to me that Kenn had to be told what to feel as I didn't get a real sexual interest from him before someone told him.he had a crush. I loved seeing all the others though and thought the balance between mystery, other couples and Kenn and Warrick was well done. So all in all a good read, even as I was not convinced about the main couple

    A rare miss for me with this author. I think that this story should have been a spin-off rather than part of the main series, I think it was difficult for the author to weave the two threads (suspense and romance) together in this one. It bothered me that Kenn did not independently realize his attraction to Warrick, as it seemed like a level of naïveté that would prevent a quick turn into a kink-filled relationship. The relationship itself came out of nowhere, and I felt that the only real inter A rare miss for me with this author.

Warrick’s character did not feel fully-realized to me. The turn from teacher and student to daddy and boy just didn’t feel authentic and at times seemed cheesy. I also really dread a Del romance as the next book. It just seems too soon to me. But I am guessing that is where this series is going….

    Wow thank you Nora for a fantastic read. One of the best books I've read in quite some time and it only took me 2 days to read. Kenn really deserved his HEA after everything that has happened and boy did Warrick come through for him, their pairing developed so naturally it was like watching a real couple. Absolute brilliant piece of writing.

    I absolutely loved this book. I have wanted Kenn and Warwick's story since the first time they appeared on the scene and I was not disappointed. Kenn is sweet and shy and basically just drifting on his own. He's living life in the spotlight and it's a life that he never wanted. He loses the one person that has infinite time for him and his world is shattered. Warwick becomes the center of his universe and thus begins the back and forth. Warwick is dealing with his own issues and it takes a while I absolutely loved this book.

Great addition to the series and I can't wait for the next one.
