Forecast: (noun)
A calculation or estimate of future events, especially coming weather.
See also: Liam “I'm Always Right” Wright.

Not your typical Daddy. Not your typical boy.
Not your typical fake relationship.


Hudson Madden looks like the kind of guy you don’t want to piss off—he’s a walking wall of muscle, brightly tatted ink up both arms, and low grunts. But underneath it all, he’s a gentle giant. One who can’t find what he wants because of the assumptions people make:

He must be an alpha.
He must be a dominant Daddy.
He must be looking for a sweet, passive boy.

The truth is more complicated. Haunted by memories of a former lover, and interested in exploring types of sex that aren’t easily defined, Hudson is happy to harbour his innocent crush on the local weatherman.

Until said weatherman crush walks into Hudson’s gym and turns his life upside down.

Liam “I’m Always Right” Wright. It might be a cute catchphrase, but when it comes to love, Liam is always wrong.

Liam hasn’t got time for love. He’s got his sights set on the big time, becoming a prime time meteorologist on a major national TV station. He’ll do anything it takes to get the promotion, even if it means entering into a fake relationship to improve his chances.

A quick-fix, no-mess solution.

So why does it feel so right when Hudson looks at him, spends time with him, and gets to know him in a way that no one ever has?

Will Hudson be able to break down his walls and let Liam in? And when forced to choose between his career and love, will Liam be able to make the right choice?

My Rating - 4 Stars!


Casey Cox's Forecast is the third book in the 99 Daddies series. Like the others, it's a great read. It does start slow though, taking a while for things to get going.

Liam and Hudson's story is far from typical. The two meet at Hudson's gym, with Hudson long having a crush on the handsome weatherman. Sounds typical. But, both men are intriguing characters, fully experienced with loss and pain. And together their story isn't anything like what's normally written.

The gym is a good meeting place for the men, as the buff and tough Hudson helps the not so buff Liam to work out. It bring out the issues of body confidence, as Liam isn't comfortable with his body. The way that this carries out is wonderful, as Hudson is one who isn't all about his lovers having a buff body.

The fake relationship aspect is well done. I enjoy why and how the relationship comes about, as well as is carried out. And if you enjoy fake relationships where the lines become blurred and they fall in love, you will love this one. The development of their emotions is sweet. 

And then there's the sexual aspect. It's a wonderful tale of sexual exploration between two men who aren't interested in the sexual norms. Hudson is a side, and with Hudson's help Liam is able to discover the beauty of sex. Their first times are hot, as well as emotional, including crowning and tantra scenes. Liam's sexual awakening through some sexual experimentation is touching for sure. 

As well, this is far from your typical Daddy romance. In fact, one could easily read the whole book and never take note of the daddy role at all. When the author states Daddy-lite, they aren't kidding. 

The writing is great. Yes, the start is slow. Yes, I almost stopped reading. (Which is why I had to rate it a 4.) But I am thrilled I didn't. The characters are extremely interesting and likeable, and their storyline is heartfelt, with some unique issues. Then add in some conflict, and by the end, the emotions are jumping off the pages. 

Forecast is far from your average romance. Casey Cox excels in bringing a beautiful and touching romance to his fans, all with some of the non-traditional sex preferences. I love it this great tale of love and acceptance.
