Matteo's Mettle (Littles & Lace #2) by Anna Sparrows

Submerging into a relationship in the second book in the Littles & Lace series, Matteo's Mettle.

From the blurb:

Turning 45, Matteo Brightman is in a rut. He’s a lonely Little looking for a Daddy. Unfortunately, he’s big, buff and tattooed: apparently not the most desirable combination for the available Daddies in the city.

Sick of hearing that he’s too old and too big to be taken seriously as a Little, Matt decides that he’s ready to hang up his onesies for good…until a last hurrah at the local BDSM club gives him hope again.

Meanwhile, 26-year-old London Hayes has zero practical experience with any of the BDSM lifestyle. He’s just doing his best friend a favour, standing in as her Little wife’s caregiver during a themed Littles’ Night at their local club. But, when his eyes land on an extremely attractive older man in a onesie, all bets are off.

But will this older Little take a chance on a completely inexperienced younger Daddy, especially when that Daddy has an undisclosed -and potentially contradictory to the role- kink of his own?

CW: While this is a low-angst, sweet & cute, instant-attraction romance, this book does contain brief mentions of cruelty and bigotry, as well as anxiety and panic attacks. This book is an MM Age Play/Age Regression romance between consenting adults and does include ABDL and wetting, and descriptions of men wearing lingerie. This book contains elements that are suitable for ages 18 and over. 

Laora's Review:

Matteo's Mettle is the second book in 'The Little & Lace' series by this author.

I like that both Matteo and London are not your stereotypical Daddy and Little. Matt, the Boy, is 19 years the senior of Daddy London, who is a natural in taking care with a penchant for lacy underwear.
They are finding their confidence and place in their quickly developing relationship before they find their hfn/ hea.

I would have liked that the friends checked on Matteo quicker after his birthday when they knew he was 'low'.

I liked the interactions and playdates with the previous and new side characters and for me that could have been more incorporated. This was a sweet contemporary MM story about redeeming Matteo and setting a new to the scene daddy in his power.
