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.

"Hello?"

My ears pricked up at the familiarity of that voice.

I snapped my head around and there he was, not on all eight TV screens as I was used to seeing him, but just one person standing right in front of me, on the other side of my front desk.

Liam “Am I Seeing This Right?” Wright.

"Oh, hey, look, Hudson, it's that guy you always make us turn every TV screen over to wa—"

My elbow found Zander's side, and thankfully, that just so happened to be where his shut the fuck up button was located.

"Hello," I said in as normal a voice as I could muster.

What the hell was happening here? How was it that Liam Wright was standing right in front of me, looking all sorts of weatherman-gorgeous? He must have come directly from the studio, because he was wearing the same outfit he'd had on earlier in the evening.

Suddenly, I wished that the counter wasn't so high so that I could look down and get a better view of his amazing…

I snapped myself out of that inappropriate, unprofessional thought by saying, "How—how can I help you?"

I tried to smile. I think I might have been smiling. I couldn't tell. I couldn't feel my face, or my feet, or my hands, anymore.

This was precisely the reason why I had avoided approaching him six times before. I was turning to mush.

"I'd like to join the gym," he said. His voice just sounded so familiar, which I guess made sense, since I'd been hearing it every day on the news for the last eighteen months. "Oh, and I'll need a personal trainer as well."

Was it possible to be both floored and speechless at the same time? The answer to that question was a resounding hell yes. Trust me, it was coming from a guy who was on the floor, unable to speak.

"We can definitely arrange that," I said after a much-too-long silence. My eyes were glued to him as my hand tapped around the counter, desperately searching for the paperwork and a pen.

"Here you go," I said, once I had finally found them. I looked down and was surprised to see my hands trembling. I quickly pulled them back and placed them firmly on the counter.

Why the hell was I shaking?

I mean, I had seen the guy in the flesh six times before. Although now that I thought about it, every time I had seen him, I'd started to shake and feel a little light-headed. I'd just assumed that was because Porter was around, and he tended to have a mildly nauseating effect on people.

"Do you have a trainer available? I'd like to start as soon as possible. Preferably tomorrow morning, please," Liam said as he looked up from the paperwork he was filling out.

"Yes, of course," I said, and then my brain left my head because the next words out of my mouth were, "My name is Hudson Madden. I'm the owner of Elite Fitness, and I would love to turn you on…"

Shitty shit, shit, shit!

I cleared my throat. "Take you on."
