Both Davey and Sammy haven't been able to find the right person to share their lives with. Sammy lost his former Daddy and is still struggling with his grief, definitely unable to find someone who fits. He does however have his best friend Davey there to help raise his kids.
What I love most about these two is how close they are as friends. They're touchy feeling, looking like a couple to outsiders. But they never thought about being a couple.
Why? Well, their kinks didn't quite match up, as both are looking for a Daddy.
Davey could never find his Daddy. In this section of his story however, he's now learning that people other than the stereotypical Daddy can be a Daddy. In the process, he finds himself and his lover.
Their story is one of self-discovery and sexual exploration. It's truly beautiful and heart-felt. I am seriously impressed with the way the author develops these men over time and am thrilled with how it all ends.
Overall, I love Rules To Ignore and the whole Davey's Rules series. If you haven't read this series, you're truly missing out.
You can start here, with Rules to Follow.
Preston finally held my card out, but didn't release it when I reached for it. "Not so fast, boo. I know you're going to disappear the second I let this go—and you'll be too distracted to pay attention when I read the announcements—so I want to run over a few things. We have the tables set up in a row against the far wall, as we discussed. You'll begin your date by handing this card to the moderator."
"Moderator? And who will that be?" Preston looked irritated when I interrupted, but I wasn't sure I needed my interactions to be judged.
Preston rolled his eyes. "We discussed it, remember? Pay attention, sweetie. Our regulars have volunteered to act as moderators. They aren't there to interact, so just ignore them. They will take each of your cards and rate your three-minute date. At the end of the event, we’ll look through everyone's cards and match couples according to those ratings. You'll have the same moderator, because you won't change tables. So I'd suggest picking someone you like before you choose their table. When the bell rings, the boy will move on to his next date while a new one will take the seat in front of you."
When he finally let go of the card, I frowned at it for a second. "No wonder I didn't know what was going on, that sounds complicated. I probably zoned out during our planning sessions."
"Right? You did seem to get distracted easily, now that I think about it." Preston paused and smiled kindly. "Relax, Davey. The only thing different about tonight is the length of the date and the side of the table you're sitting on. Remember to keep an open mind and have fun. Besides, didn't I see Sammy walk in with you? If he's doing the mixer, at least you know you'll have a three-minute break to bitch at your bestie about what I'm putting you through." He paused to waggle his eyebrows. "Unless maybe you'd prefer to make better use of those three minutes and explore the chemistry everybody sees between the two of you."
