Told in dual POVs
I want him to be my first.
I want him to be the one.
I want him to be my everything.
I didn’t expect to spend my eighteenth birthday stranded in the pouring rain with no way to make it home.
I didn’t expect to be rescued from the worst night of my life by the most amazing man I’d ever seen.
His name is Nick, and he says he wants to take care of me, says he’ll look after me, says I don’t need to be alone anymore.
He treats me like a princess, like the fragile little girl he saved from the cold.
But I like him… I like him like that.
I’ve never liked anyone like that before…
And it’s weird, this thing we have…
It’s like I can’t decide how we’re supposed to be… what we are…
Until he says the words…
Call me Daddy.
My Rating: 3.5
First I need to say that ‘daddy kink’ is not one of my favorite genres of romance. That said, I dove into this book with eagerness and optimism because Jade West has never let me down. I have not read that many books with this kink so I will do my best to give an honest review. Being a fan of Jade’s writing, I thought I knew what to expect when diving into this book. (view spoiler) Well I was wrong. Wrong. Wrong. The first several chapters were great. I mean that. The build up of Nick and Laine’s relationship was done well. Their interactions were cautious but the build up of sexual tension was considerable. Hot. Hot. Hot. There were many moments in this book that I loved. And there were some I didn’t. Those particular moments were cringe-worthy. To tell you the truth, I laughed it off because it was so over-the-top gross. (inserts laughing emoji) Obviously I didn’t connect to either Nick or Laine. Laine used the word ‘icky’ quite a bit…that about sums it up for me too. But as I said before, not all of the book was like that. The last 10% of the book seemed to be a revelation for Nick. Thank God! 😉 I would call this read a roller coaster being that it started out great then dipped to the land of ick (I’m laughing again), and ended great as well. So yeah, overall I enjoyed it.
Nick is a well-off, 42 year old businessman; a partner in a successful accounting firm. He lives alone and leads a solitary life which is what he prefers. A bit of a sad story there. Nick is not a ‘player’ and I inferred from the story that this may have been his first time experiencing the role play of ‘daddy kink.’ But it was obvious he has thought about it. When Nick first meets Laine, his instincts to protect, possess, and care for her every need, was strong. I literally mean ‘every’ need.
Laine is an 18 year old college student. She lives alone with her loser mom whose is gone more than she is there to care for her daughter. One night, Laine finds herself in a dangerous situation and it’s Nick that comes to her rescue. Laine instantly connects with Nick. her first impression is that she wishes he was the daddy she never had. It’s not long though before ‘little’ Laine is thinking dirty thoughts. Laine was very immature; she literally acted like a child. She was innocent as well. However, Laine was not naive; she had the epitome of a dirty mind.
This book was not only ‘daddy kink’ with a huge side of smut; there is a storyline. Nick does have a past. Overall I enjoyed Call Me Daddy. But I am going to warn you now, as does the author in her blurb, if this kink is not your thing and you find it disturbing, this is not the book for you. Jade takes this book to a taboo level. That said, I used my sense of humor to get me through some moments.
