Publisher's Summary

Davey’s rule number 83: Daddy will encourage his boy to be the best he can be and be supportive of his boy’s career choices.

Marcus Alves has waited most of his adult life to find the perfect match. A sweetheart who will love cuddles, need a daddy to help him thrive, and most importantly, be the type of boy that might want to use the binky that Marcus keeps hidden in his pocket. Now in his forties, he’s refusing to give up on his dream or the unused playroom that’s waiting for someone to enjoy.

Jeff Robustelli has had a rough life. Growing up in a commune with absent parents was hard for a rule-following, straitlaced guy with a genius IQ. When the uncle who saved him died, Jeff did what he does best - buried his head in the sand and pretended life wasn’t changing. Working in a daddy club has shown him what he really wants, but Jeff is too afraid to take a chance on something new.

When Jeff has a sudden need for a fake fiancé, he strikes a deal with the older man who always seems to be there when his world is crumbling and makes him feel safe. In exchange, he agrees to a fake daddy/boy experiment designed to let him try out being little...without any pressure. 

While Marcus and Jeff navigate their “deal” and the unexpected new feelings that begin to emerge, Marcus also must help the younger man through a series of life changes that put him on the road to being the adult he’s been too afraid to be. 

When everything in Jeff’s life is in turmoil, Marcus is his one stability. But can Jeff trust his own heart when nothing else in his life is making sense anymore?

This is the fifth book 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 that you’d want from a Susan Hawke book.

So Sweet and Gooey That Might Cause A Diabetic Coma

Rules of Obey is an Age gap, Age play, Daddy Kink , Slow burn, Sexy and Sweet, MM , Rom-Com with a HEA . Book 5 in the interconnected Davey's Rules Series , but it can be read as standalone.

It's an Ok read/listen ; a bit slow in pace and steam , for me. It's also über sweet , with some angst and a fair amount drama. Jeff and Marcus are a cute couple and their kinks compliment each other , perfectly. I like their story but it bored me a bit. There wasn't much romance ; was even surprised when MCs declared they loved each other.

Michael Dean narration was effervescent , animated , a bit OTT at times but then, the story itself is extravagant. Let's call it Baroque ... yep, that's it !

Anyways, it's my opinion . I know many have enjoyed this book a lot ; so , it might be me, not the book situation.

I received an AXC promo code through LesCourt and am leaving my unbiased review.

Not if fan of “little” kink

This was a good story, but I really was uncomfortable with the “little” kink. I guess I just don’t understand why. But the love story and care that Marcus gives is sweet. I am such a fan of Davy that I can’t wait for his storyline. I guess that’s why I felt the need to listen to this one too since I’m invested in the series.

Perfect Fit

Perfect Fit
Jeff needed to be just brave enough to go out with Marcus. And the growth explodes. I love how Marcus is there to supply just what Jeffy needs. Their life just gets richer and richer.

Adorable!! I couldn’t wait for this one :)

I absolutely love this series and couldn’t wait for this book!
Susan Hawke has created a great daddy kink series with all different types of characters with challenges and lifestyles that just end up clicking together. Jeff’s is in need of finding his true self whereas his daddy Marcus has been waiting for the perfect boy and they just have both been through a lot and deserve so much happiness. It’s adorable to see Jeff find himself as a little boy and Marcus find everything he can in Transformers. I definitely can’t wait for the next book in the series! In this book we got to see a lot more of Sammy and Davey, and their little family so it makes you even more ready for their stories!

Michael Dean did an amazing job making this book fun and interesting to listen to. I absolutely adore his voice and talent! A must listen!

Great book with great narration!

Daddy Marcus is a wonderful Daddy for Jeffy. I am so glad we got Jeff’s book. I love this character and hoped we would meet his Daddy! I read this one when it came out and really enjoyed it! When the audio came out I was really excited. Michael Dean’s narration was fantastic!

Great Addition to Series!


I enjoyed reading about Marcus and Jeff's journey to love. It's a really sweet story and shows that there's someone for everyone no matter how awkward a person may seem to be. Sammy and Davey are quickly becoming two of my fav characters and I love their shenanigans. I hope Sammy gets his own story in the future. This book is a great addition to the series. Narrator did a great job with bringing the story to life.

Cute

This is such a cute, sweet story with well-written characters. A Boy needs his Daddy, just like a Daddy needs his Boy. Jeff and Marcus need each other and what they both bring to the other's life. Jeff needs the comfort and stability and Marcus needs to be needed and wanted.

I loved this story and the wonderful narration that makes it even better.
