Two Daddies for Henry by TL Travis

Expanding on the story from Dirty Daddies Pride 2023, we get more depth, more steam and more emotion in the revised edition of Two Daddies for Henry.

From the blurb:

Life for young Henry Adams was lonely, mundane, and just plain sad. His only friend, a unicorn stuffie named Merlin, was always nearby and ready anytime Henry needed a hug. By day, Henry was the owner of Turn the Page bookstore but at night he was a lonely boy who dreamt of having a Daddy of his own.

Mitchell Blackthorn moved back home after years away living a grand life in Chicago when his mother fell and broke her hip. When another fall led to a dementia diagnosis, Mitchell turned to his best friend Jensen for support and guidance. What he didn’t expect to find was love.

Jensen Pohler had been head over heels stupid in love with his best friend Mitchell since the day they met. Mitchell, however, didn’t feel the same. For years Jensen fought the attraction by filling his bed with one boy after another only to be disappointed in the end when the relationship would fail.

One lost boy, two struggling daddies and a stuffie named Merlin. Do they have what it takes to make each other whole? To become a family. Or were they wasting their time searching for something that wasn’t there.

Two Daddies for Henry is an MMM, best friends to lovers, hurt/comfort, age gap, family life romance.

A portion of this story was included in the Dirty Daddies Pride 2023 anthology.

Heather's Review:

Whether you've read the novella from Dirty Daddies Pride 2023 or not, you'll love the dynamic that brings together best friends Jenson and Mitchell with the third person that makes their whole relationship make sense...

I absolutely love how Henry is portrayed - strong, sweet and yearning for the right daddy... daddies?  I love that Jensen is so in tune with Mitchell, but holding himself back until they start formulating their daddy interest.  Poor Mitchell goes through so much - his mother's diagnoses, moving home after many years, so much hurt and introspection...

I will say that while the relationship itself was sweet and wonderful, this book has serious moments too, and a lot of impactful forces that push and pull on the budding relationship.  This trigger contains a spoiler, but I think it's important to share, so highlinght the coloured block if you want to see the TW: death of a parent

This book does contain some age regression, but is really about the strong poly relationship building between these three men.

Two Daddies for Henry is currently available in paperback and e-book format and can be read as part of your Kindle Unlimited subscription.
