Anthology-Dirty Daddies

So, last year, a bunch of Daddy authors got together and started a party room on FB. There’s a lot of parties, jokes, posts, and so forth in there. There’s also a pretty damn awesome anthology that came out of it. And I was the lucky one to get a full ARC of the whole Dirty Daddies anthology. Rayanna Jamison asked me if I wanted it, which I feel like was some kind of test, because, like I’m going to say no?

There are 12 stories in here by 13 authors, since Rayanna and Allysa teamed up on their story. All of the authors have written Daddy stories before, and I had read all but two of them, and they were both on my TBR. But, shall we talk about what my TBR looks like on any given day?

There are a lot of reasons that I like to read anthologies like this. One is that you get a lot of takes on the theme, and there is quite a range in here. Another is that you can get a good flavor of authors you aren’t familiar with, which in my case was Laylah Roberts and J.M. Dabney. Some of the stories in here, like Golden Angel’s Little Leigh, Pepper North’s Sylvie, and Katie Douglas’ Daddy’s Precious Little Girl belong in established worlds, while others are new stories in new worlds. And then you get Brianna Hale, who got her inspiration from a thread on FB. And Brianna? I think I read that thread too. I probably said that it would be the only way that I would exercise too. LOL.

All 12 stories are good stories and I like them all. And I would really like to have any one of these 12 Daddies, because they are so yummy and Daddy-licious. But, like with any anthology, there are going to be stories that I like more than others. Because that’s just how it is.

If you have read my blog, you can probably guess that Lindsay’s Secret by Emily Tilton is one of my favorites, because yeeeeeaahhhhh. We all know how I feel about Emily and the way that she writes about erotic humiliation, because it’s just so dirty the way that she does it. I mean the language around it. I know, I know, every time I talk about Emily, I say that, but that’s because every time I read her books, I’m struck by it. The only way for it to get hotter is to listen to an audiobook. I can’t listen to her audiobooks while I’m driving. It’s a rule. But, I liked watching Lindsay and Rick figuring things out.

J.M. Dabney’s An Odd Little Girl is another one of my favorites. They wrote a fun little story about a Daddy finding his little girl, and a little girl finding the Daddy she’s always needed, but never knew she needed. I really like Via because she really just exudes sweetness and light, and I could totally feel that. I like how Donavan accepts everything about Via, including the rest of her family. And frankly, I think her family is just ridiculously wonderful.

Aubrey Cara’s Cry for Daddy is another favorite of mine. It’s darker than the rest of the stories, but it’s not totally dark, just darker than the others. Her story is about Lily and Maximus, and how they fit together in each other’s lives and with the world in general. I felt sorry for Lily, but also I felt like she kept a core essential of who she was hidden. Maximus wasn’t the entire hardass that he wants to believe he was. Not to say he isn’t a hardass badass, but he has a soft marshmallowy center.

OK, if you want 12 smoking hot Daddies, then this is definitely the anthology that you need to get. Of course, I’m willing to fight you for several of the Daddies, and spoiler, I fight dirty. I enjoyed each and every story, and I will definitely reread the stories when I need a quick Daddy pick up.

Kara Kelley-Biker Daddy

So, Kara Kelley has combined a story that is a MC book and a Daddy book in Biker Daddy. You might not think that those things combine together to make a great story, but Kara made it work. I really love how it works together. Although, I’m going to say that the MC isn’t the main thrust of the story, the Daddy stuff is the main trope in the series, but the MC stuff does overshadow everything and help to force some of the decisions that are made during the book.

Here’s the story. When he was 12, Drew was out with his dad, who was the Prez of the Skull Grinders, acting as lookout. Daddy dearest and his minions are there to make an example of a guy who has screwed them over. But Drew saw someone coming and hollers, which means that bystander got killed. Drew tried to save his life, and manages to hide the guy’s kid, but leaves his bloody handprint on the kid’s arm. Even though he didn’t do anything, he’s the one who took the fall, so he ends up spending 4 years in juvenile detention and then has to go do some probation, which he does as a leader at a camp for troubled boys. When he was there, Ray, the owner, asked him to watch over his neice, Addianna.

Addianna fell in love with Drew and her first kiss was with her, but then he broke her heart and left things in a flaming heap. So she has spent the years since then hating Drew. But when she finds out that her Uncle Ray, who is now a world-famous and prominent artist, has died, she knows that she has to go take care of everything. That’s just what she does. And when she finds out that there was someone living with her uncle, she never thought that Drew would be that person.

I felt sorry for Addi, but not because of Drew. All through the book, she’s getting calls and texts from her dad, looking for things because he can’t life on his own. She’s there, dealing with her beloved uncle’s death, in fact, her father’s brother, grieving and planning for the funeral, and for all her dad knows, she’s dealing with this all on her own, and he’s fucking calling her because he can’t find his TV remote, which you know is just sitting there next to him, or he can’t find his glasses, which are on his face. You can tell that she’s been parenting her dad since she was little and she’s been adulting for way too long. It’s no wonder that Drew’s Daddy works so well for her. She’s able to let go and let someone else take control. OK, it’s hard for her to let go, but having someone else have that control and cherish her makes her feel so good. That’s part of the whole DD/lg age play thing. The sub can be that little person inside of them and their Daddy can handle the adult stuff, but when she needs to be an adult, Daddy is right there standing beside her because that’s what Daddies do. They take control when necessary, but they know when to let their little girls be women and handle their shit.

OMG, seriously, who leaves their 16-year-old daughter to make the decision on whether or not they should pull the life support for their other parent? I could get it if her dad were dead or otherwise incapacitated, but nope. He’s alive and right there even. Ugh. What a turdblossom.

And Layla is just gross from the get go. It’s obvious that she’s trying to make Trevor jealous and she’s just using Drew to do that. I’m sorry for Brent, getting trapped in that mess.

I love who comes to the rescue at the end. It just shows that what goes around comes around and that you never know what one choice you have made in your life will grow and change your life.

Anyway, that’s all I have to say on this one. I really did love it. Go check it out on the Zon and tell me what you think. Happy reading!
