Rescue Me, Daddy by Michael Robert

"An intensely suspenseful age gap, daddy/boy dynamic of the year!" Tatted_book_freak gave Rescue Me, Daddy a high rating.

From the blurb:


My life in Valentine, Nebraska, wasn’t easy. At just nineteen, I found myself homeless and jobless with no prospects on the horizon. A life of abuse crushed people, but I still had space in my heart for love.
With the support and guidance of an elderly widower, my life finally began to turn around.

Being young and gay in a small town brought challenges but I had goals for my life, one of which was to be loved. The arrival of a world famous author to our small community turned my world upside down. What did I have to offer a man like Davis? I have nothing but my heart. I hope it’s enough.


After the end of my five-year relationship in Malibu, I was desperate for change. Even though my career was successful, I could still use an infusion of ideas for my next book. So I did the unthinkable and decided to randomly stick a pin in a map and relocate. My friends may have labeled me insane, but I couldn’t resist the temptation. A fresh start in a new town offered the chance to distract myself while I heal from the pain of a failed relationship.

Coming to the rescue of Tim on the very first day we met, was the beginning of one story I hadn’t expected. I had relocated to find a great story, but hadn’t expected to discover my own love story. Could a small town in the middle of nowhere offer a new beginning for both my heart and my career? Little did I know that small towns could have dark secrets that could threaten to shatter my heart.

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

Another stellar performance by Michael! While I was amazed at his romance literature, I am baffled by this suspense-filled novel of mystery and romance! Sat on edge throughout the entire process, screaming at Timmy to get out, yelling at Davis to get his head out of his ass, and mesmerized at Michael’s ability to capture the intensity of every moment when appropriate.

The suspense mixed with steam was an absolute chef kiss 💋, even if I'm not necessarily a Daddy/boy lover. Their dynamic was just perfection, allowing the role-playing atmosphere to shine with excellence. The buildup was fitting for the story, and placed at just the ideal moment.  

Character development was pristine!! Timmy’s backstory, Davis’ protectiveness, and Carl, oh how I loved your character and wisdom!  Side characters were phenomenal, though questionable the majority of the time, except Shotzie (she kicks ass!).  

PSA: prepare yourself for one helluva ride with Rescue Me, Daddy!!
