Publisher's Summary

Davey’s Rule number 85: Daddy will always treat his boy like he's Daddy’s world...because that’s how it should be!

Note: This is a collection of short stories that follow the final book in the Davey’s Rules series.

Revisit all your favorite couples and families from Daddy’s Lap in this five-part, seven-story collection that shows them all living their happily-ever-afters.

These stories include:

  • A unique bachelor party, wedding, and new proposal that take place during a long weekend in Vegas.
  • The day when Travis and Adam officially adopt their daughter.
  • The fabulous moment when Sammy and Davey say "I Do".
  • Mikey and Landon finally share how they became a couple.
  • And finally, get ready to smile as Davey and Sammy welcome a new baby.

This collection of shorts is number eight in a series about not-so-perfect Daddies, adorable “boys”, and one sassy brat with an insane list of rules. Grab your fan and tissues because this series comes with both a high heat advisory and all the squishy feels you’d want from a Susan Hawke audiobook. Please be aware that this is a bonus book to the series, a collection of shorts rather than a full-length novel.

Peek Into Their Lives

This was such a fun peak of some of our favorite characters as they get together to celebrate big events in their lives. It covers a couple of years in their lives. It makes a wonderful wrap up to such a special series.

Loving glimpses

This is several stories in one collection that gives us an updated glimpse into some favorite couples' lives. I enjoyed each little story and cannot get over how much this series makes me smile. Each character and their voices are so unique and beautiful that you will not want to turn off the audio.

The narrator is amazing and is able to transform each character so well.

Best Happy Ending for Everyone in the Series

I recommend listening to this only after you have listened to the first 7 other books in the series, as your heart will melt all the more to understand where the characters were in their own stories to where they are now in this happily ever after ending. Susi Hawke did an incredible story wrapping up everyone's HEA (again, as each of her books in her series ends with a HEA/HFN). This is one series I will definitely be listening to again, which is honestly rare for me. Michael Dean's narration was impeccable!

The perfect end to this fab series!

This was such a happy surprise of an addition to Susan Hawke's Davey's Rules! I loved this collection of epilogues for almost all of the couples--and one throuple--allowing readers one last visit with the entire cast. Rules for Loving was sweet and very much the perfect end to this great series about Daddies and their boys. As always, Michael Dean did justice to every single character he brought to life and I couldn't have imagined any other narrator giving voice to Hawke's sweet, sassy, and scintillating series. Five stars!

Such a Loving Ending

Rules for Loving
MMy Thoughts and Review:

A loving series of short vignettes to wrap up the "Davey's Rules Series." Susan has lovingly taken the fans of the series into the future where we can drop in on a Vegas beach wedding, a proposal in a gondola floating through a canal in Venice. We get to witness a little girl finding a forever home with two daddies who are also a "Daddy and boy."
As happy news comes for a puppy, we travel back in time to learn how his boy and Daddy met before bringing him home. There was also the story of our favorite Daddy Diva and his Princess adding to their family with a HEA for the masses.

My eyes may have watered a smidge over events in past books from this series, but I really shed a few when this one was over. Happy and bittersweet tears for the end of one exceptional series that I have loved reading from the beginning. The cast in the books are people who stay with you long after the story ends. Michael Dean is phenomenal in bringing the characters alive in the audiobooks. I love this series and will treasure it for years to come.

**This is NOT a standalone.

I can't give a poor review...

...because this isn't your usual book so I can't in all fairness judge it the way I would a novel. But the story fillers in this collection reminded me of why I didn't ask for some of the stories that they complete. Davey was still pretty irritating in parts, and the relationship and behavior of Landon, Michael/Mikey, and Chris/Topher were not al all engaging to me. It just made me shake my head. And as always, if you like Michael Dean, you'll like this one.
