    4 Stars Told in dual POV, 3rd person, it's the second installment in "The Men of Canter's Handyman" series and it can be read as a standalone but I think if you read it in order you'd enjoy it better. There is a huge age gap (almost 20 years, Miller was 31 and Brent was 50 years old). It's a quick easy read and a bit angsty (but more like a cute one). It's a friends-to-lovers story. There was a Daddy/boy thing but it was just a nickname and nothing huge (lucky me). Overall, I had a good time read 4 Stars Told in dual POV, 3rd person, it's the second installment in "The Men of Canter's Handyman" series and it can be read as a standalone but I think if you read it in order you'd enjoy it better.

    Miller has been in love with his best friend's father for years. After nursing Brent back to health a few years ago, neither can deny their attraction to each other or their feelings of love that have grown any longer. This was a sweet daddy/boy book and good continuation of the series. I look forward to more. Miller has been in love with his best friend's father for years.

    This is a good example of a book where the characters and the story are absolutely fine, but the terrible writing ruined the book for me. Nothing made sense in this book. No one acted like I felt they should and I was pretty much confused the entire time. This book also felt like it was on speed. Everything happened super fast. There was no gradual transition to the next scene or event. There were a lot of things that didn’t make a lot of sense. Like Miller flirted with his best friend’s father Bre This is a good example of a book where the characters and the story are absolutely fine, but the terrible writing ruined the book for me.

There was no gradual transition to the next scene or event. There were a lot of things that didn’t make a lot of sense. Like Miller flirted with his best friend’s father Brent for years, and he even kissed him on the lips as a way of flirting with him. Brent called Miller baby and was quite affectionate with him. Yet, everyone said Brent was straight and that Miller didn’t stand a chance. Were all of them blind? Why on earth would a straight man be okay with his son’s best friend kissing him on the mouth and would call him baby in return? That would ring a few bells I would presume. But no, everyone was apparently stupid, and blind. The word ‘he’ was also used too much. I was often totally lost as to who did what. There was a conversation between Miller, Troy, and Win, and I had no idea who was saying what. It was so confusing. The whole explanation why Brent raised Troy alone was also a bit strange. Brent and Brenda hooked up, she got pregnant and then they decided Brent would raise the child, and Brenda…. was apparently out of the picture, just like that. Now there is a scene where Miller drops by Brent and sees a woman in his house. He gets jealous, but later finds out that it was Brenda, Brent’s ex-girlfriend from college. Now that seemed a very strange way to be calling Troy’s mother. No one called her that, just Brent’s ex-girlfriend from college. Now since Brent was (almost?) 50 I would guess Brenda was too, and since she’s also Troy’s mom, wouldn’t people stop referring to her as ‘the ex-girlfriend’ (it was 30 years ago people, let it go)? But apparently not. Then there was the Daddy thing. Now I’m ALL for a good daddy/boy relationship, but I found it weird that Miller practically shouted their kink off the roof. He called Brent Daddy no matter who was around, or even in a restaurant. And apparently everyone was once again totally fine with this and no one found it at all weird. I actually did like Miller and Brent, and I kept wanting the writing to improve so I could enjoy the story. But it didn’t…..

    I really liked Brent and Miller’s story. Brent is a 50 year old man (and Troy’s dad from book one) who survived cancer and is slowly finding his way back to life again. Miller is Troy’s best friend – and almost a step-son to Brent, who took him in when Miller’s parents threw him out as a teenager for being gay. Miller has had the hots for Brent for 14 years, but of course, Troy’s dad was always off limits. Still, Miller is a pretty affectionate guy, so it’s no surprise that Brent is used to getting I really liked Brent and Miller’s story.

It was a pretty unique starting point for a romance, but one that I liked very much. Just like the first book, their romance continued the perfect, almost fearful slow-burn that I loved so much about Troy and Win’s story. However, I have to admit, their intimate moments – which consisted of pretty heavy daddy/boy roleplay and had a pretty strong dom/sub edge to it – gave me goosebumps. But not the good kind. And why, why, why does Brent call Miller ‘his little man’?! That’s so weird. It made me shudder every single time… Literally everything else about this story was great, but their sex-talk freaked me out. 3 stars!

They share their sassy banter, calling each other "Daddy" and "boy," but then when they get together, that sassy word play becomes the sexy Daddy/boy BDSM relationship they dive into. There is mild BDSM, and we see how special our men are. I liked the older/younger and loved to see their happiness. We get snappy quips, humor, hot sex, and tender, sweet romance and more. ENJOY ! ========

    I've soooo been looking forward to Brent and Miller, it seems like forever! Though I know it's just been me, being impatient. Still, I loved these two and I was curious how it was going to work, since Brent (who is Troy, from the last books, dad) is straight. Apparently... he isn't. He's bi, he just hasn't had time to explore that side of himself since being a single father for years and then being sick. One thing he had to look forward to, was his son's best friend Miller, who came to them when I've soooo been looking forward to Brent and Miller, it seems like forever!

Apparently... he isn't. He's bi, he just hasn't had time to explore that side of himself since being a single father for years and then being sick. One thing he had to look forward to, was his son's best friend Miller, who came to them when the boys were in high-school after being kicked out of his house. Miller has always had a crush on his best friends' dad, but when he got cancer, his feelings for him amped up into full blown, unrequited love. Is there anything worse? I know when I was 14 and fell head over heels for my twin brother's best friend... it never went away. I've been married for ages, with two kids of my own, and I'm still a giddy mess that reverts to my 14 year old self anytime I see him. It's been almost 20 years LOL... so, I get it, and it sucks! BUT, when Brent got sick, nobody was there for him like Miller was. When Brent felt like giving up, or felt badly about himself, Miller was always there to brighten him up and help him keep fighting. I loved that. They both frustrated me though, the back and forth in the beginning, that could've been solved by a simple conversation. Misunderstandings that would be cleared up in minutes, if they'd both just grow a pair and talk to each other about what they want. I get it though, easier said than done. It was an interesting road, and we've met some new people whom I cannot wait to read about... I hope Frankie is next, I bet he'll break my heart.... (I have a thing for the wounded bird syndrome) and maybe Clay, because I love me a hot Dad. ....or, Daddy, as is the case in this one.... Hello, dirty mouth... that was sexy. Anyway... love the series, love the couple and I can't wait for more! 5 stars from me!

    3.5 stars for this very sweet romance... This love was a long time coming ! Miller had loved his best friends dad for most of his life and no matter how he tried to push it aside, he just couldn’t. After a major illness scare, Brent realized life was worth living and he decided to pursue the little minx that was Miller. This really was a feel good romance.

    I wanted to like this book so much more but the daddy kink annoyed me. Miller is hardly a boy. It was a nice romance.

    Another solid book in this series, just perfect for the mood I was in - sweet, sappy, sexy age gap and daddy kink, and this one delivered. This is Brent and Miller's story - Brent is Troy's father who has been recovering from cancer and is just now in remission and getting back to everyday life. Miller, Troy's best friend, has been in love with Brent for years, and he took care of him while Brent was undergoing treatment.

Miller, Troy's best friend, has been in love with Brent for years, and he took care of him while Brent was undergoing treatment. The two desperately want the other, only both are too afraid to make a move. I love Miller, his sass and attitude covering up years of hurt and crappy parents. Brent is perfect for him, and along with Brent, Miller will now get an entire family to replace his horrible birth parents. Can't wait for Clay and Frankie's stories, so I hope that this author will continue with this series! One note if the author or their editors read reviews - I have noticed multiple times that there are phrases that go like "When him and Miller had entered the kitchen..." for example, that need to be "when he and Miller..." And there were a few times at the start of a new chapter, it'll just dive right in and say "he" this and "he" that and I had NO clue who "he" was for several lines because sometimes it went to dialogue with no explanation of who was talking. Sorry, the my-mom-was-an-English-teacher in me kept spotting those things.

    I love my Miller! Sweet baby Jesus! Just the fix I needed. I have loved Miller since he was first introduced! He was a witty outgoing goofy boy with a old man soul and I just ate it up! I am so happy he got his man! You won’t be disappointed! Now off to bug the author for the next one!

    Perfect Cover, Perfect Romance OK, so this one was projected in the first of the series, and the cover gives it away: Troy's straight father Brent and Troy's openly gay best friend Miller, get together. The unlikely 19 year age difference was semi-glossed over by the romance of Troy and his older now husband Win in the first book. But the likelihood that Brent and Miller would come together in quite the way they have in this one was not really projected in that book.

Indeed, this one is full of humor and real hot sex but more than that there's a delightfully playful and totally innocent theme that brings their potentially "Daddy/Boy" dom/sub references to each other into a completely different light: Brent and Miller become so sweetly captivated with each other that how they refer to each other is so endearing that it might occasionally bring a little tear to your eye, and a blip to your heart. I loved this one more than the first, and author Dabney has hinted in both books now that there is another coming that might (or should) involve a tall, gangly ginger daddy. Bring it on!

    3.5. An almost perfect Daddy book. Once I started reading this book, I realized that I'd started it before and abandoned it at 12%. I have no idea why. If you find yourself struggling in the beginning, and yo haven't read Book 1, ditch it and go back. I'm telling you, you NEED Book 1 to fully appreciate how long Miller has been in love with Brent. They were the PERFECT Daddy and boy even before they knew what they were to each other. I LOVED how Miller fought for his man, I love how he loved him 3.5. An almost perfect Daddy book.

I loved that Brent finally came around and claimed his boy. The pacing is wonderful, the situations are realistic. There's no senseless drama and histrionics. Miller being a 'granddad' at 30 is kind of hilarious, but it works. The Daddy kink works. I will say that around 84%, the book starts dragging and gets repetitive and saccharine. Really, we could have skipped everything from 84% to 93%. All of that had already been said and I felt like the author was just filling pages. Troy having a minor fit every time Miller called Brent 'Daddy' was funny. It got slightly repetitive after a while, but wasn't so bad. The epilogue was great, and I guess the next book will be Clay and Frankie's. Yessss. 3.5

    I care about the Canter family I do care about these characters. I read the first story and wanted to see what happened with Brent & Miller. Going forward, I am curious about Frankie and Clay. While the writing could be stronger, I do find myself caring about this incredible handyman/construction business that hires queer men looking for love. For me, who Brent becomes and how he treats Miller when he’s in “Daddy” mode seems so different than his character at all other times.

Maybe it makes sense that this is his first real relationship and he’s fifty—so he’s repressed that part of himself unless he’s with Miller, but it just didn’t click for me. For those sensitive to editing issues, “him” is often used when “he” would be correct. And sometimes it was hard to tell who was narrating or what was happening because Brent & Miller had similar voices...or the sentence would start with Brent, but the next “he” in the sentence was Miller.

    JM Dabney is one of my autobuy authors and normally I love every word they wrote. This one didn’t quite capture my attention though - not much happened - the build up to Brent and Miller was lovely but too short, as once they got together the story faded away and it was just a bit samey. I think this one too needed a bit of editing - Miller and Brent were referred to as daddy/boy repeatedly in the same sentence and it got repetitive, disrupting the flow of reading.

    Sweet. Miller & Brent made a great couple. The story kind of spun out at the end...three of the last four chapters felt unnecessary to me, but overall a cute, enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more by this author. Spoiler alert for those who like (or dislike) the Daddy dynamic mentioned in the blurb: (view spoiler)[ this is barely a graze on the Daddy-kink scale. Mainly just a nickname, and for sure no age play. (hide spoiler)] Sweet. Miller & Brent made a great couple.
