Publisher's Summary

As long as LonelyDaddy is on the other side of the computer screen, there’s a chance he could be the man Emerson has been dreaming of.  

I’ve gotten used to being alone, to disappearing inside the fictional worlds between the pages of a book, and letting my lonely life fade away. 

Books have never judged me for the stutter I can’t control. Books have never abandoned me. Books have never let me down. Then again, books have never hugged me or told me they love me either, so my plan is far from perfect. 

The first time I lay eyes on the tall, red-haired Kiernan with a beard for days and shoulders made for scratch marks, I wanted to crawl into his lap and call him Daddy. The only problem is, I can never seem to string two words together around him.... Heck, I’d be happy to manage to get even one word out, like maybe “yes”, preferably over and over again. 

I thought making an online dating profile would be the hardest part, but it turns out getting up the courage to meet the man I’ve been messaging is even more difficult. Could LonelyDaddy be Kiernan? And if he is, is there any chance he’ll want to keep me? Can I be his brave boy? 

Brave Boy is the online love-sweet, ginger Daddy - totally swoony - second book in the Perfect Boys series, and can be listened to as a stand-alone.

Enjoyable audio

I enjoy Daddy/boy kink if it’s done well, and this one is. The story is sweet and the development of the relationship between Emerson and Kiernan is lovely. I liked the power dynamic - meaning that there wasn’t an imbalance. Emerson is independent and has his own life, business, friends … The relationship with Kiernan really became something else - not a “rescue” but rather two men with compatible needs who fit together. They are both lonely in their own ways and I really enjoyed how they came together as a couple and found their HEA.

In terms of narration, Tim Paige and Liam DiCosimo make a great team as always. The characters are distinct and it leans more into a vocal performance with emotion communicated rather than just a narrator reading lines. Overall, I think the audio here complements this terrific book well.

Smart Stuttering Sub meets Darling Dominant Daddy

This is a sweet low-angst tale of a wealthy, dominant daddy-type who’s grown tired of the gold-digging opportunists that are all he’s encountered. When he meets and is smitten with a sweet young man with a debilitating stutter, he’s warned against him by his friends. But when he encounters that lad again on a chat site, he decides that maybe they’re perfect for each other. That is if Brave Boy really is the boy he thinks he is…

This book’s been reviewed before in print form so I’ll try to primarily be focus on the audiobook aspects. But that said, I do have to admit I did learn something new listening to this book. When the guys go to a BDSM kink-club they attend a “demonstration” of Shibari. I wasn’t familiar with the term, and now I’m curious to learn a bit more. Our boys here were really just naughty, not knotty.

For an audiobook. This has more frequent, more explicit sexual content than most of the titles I’ve listened to. I have a young straight roommate who’s open minded and is fully aware that he’s living with an older gay man. Still, I found myself turning the volume down on this a bit when he was around, just in order to preserve his modesty.

There are lengthy sections where “dirty boy” Emerson describes his sexual fantasies at length. The Emerson character also writes erotic fiction and even reads an excerpt or two. So, that “dirty” quality is on full display here. The couple even visit a sex kink club at one point, and unlike most of “what happens in Vegas,” that scene doesn’t “stay in Vegas.”

Tim Paige & Liam Dicosomo share the narration here with chapters presented from alternating points of view in the standard “he said/he said” format. I was worried, given that this book deals with someone who’s a severe stutterer that this aspect would be poorly done making this painful to listen to. But Liam Dicosomo, who mainly voices Emerson, does a credible job portraying the stutter without letting it become mawkish or overdone. Of course part of the credit for that, goes to the material itself which has Emerson engaging in a lively inner monologue without actually giving voice to most of his many, many thoughts. Tim Paige does a great job as well. His character, Kiernan, is a somewhat older, somewhat wealthier character who generally says what he feels. But he also has a LOT of internal monologue going through his head. The characters do text a lot, so there was plenty of opportunity for this to get confusing in an audio-format as to what had been said, what had been texted and what had just been contemplated. Both guys managed this amazingly well. There was little to no confusion here as that issue which I have encountered (and complained about) in other audio-books.

My big problem here is that this was book two in a series, and I haven’t been exposed to book 1. While this one is completely enjoyable on its own, it really has me curious as to the characters from book 1 that we meet here. I REALLY want to know more of their back-stories and book one is narrated by the same two guys. Now I’m torn between diving into it as an audio-book, listening to something unrelated as a sort of audio-sorbet, or getting the e-book version of book 1, and sparing the sensibilities of my straight room-mate.

Such a sweet listen!

I just absolutely love Emerson and Kieran! They are just so sweet and sexy. KM Neuhold always makes me fall in love with these characters. Then Liam DiCosimo and Tim Paige does an amazing job with this narration. I love both their voices and they bring so much life to this story. They made a story that I already love and made me love it more. Such an amazing listen!

Holy swoon city!

Honestly I already knew how much I adore Emerson and Kieran both together and apart so the swoony, steamy, incredibly sweet story was just that! I am so obsessed with this whole series and I can’t wait for what I think the author is hinting at for a poly book in the future! Now let’s talk about the narration… I have never listened to an mm romance with two different narrators and I wasn’t sure what to expect but oh my godddddd it was sooo good! Emerson’s stutter and sterlings accent were done really well and I think that having two such distinctively different voices for each character really added to my listening experience. If you’re on the fence for this audio just do it!! You won’t be disappointed!

EVERYTHING!!♥️🔥😊♥️

I am a voracious romance consumer, and I believe that every single trope and type of romance novel can be perfect when it is written by a master writer with a deep understanding of what they are writing about wether it’s historical, twisted or kinky.

This book, THIS BOOK!! Is a perfect representation of that. Sugary sweet, kinky and hot as all hell and focused on Daddy Little Boy kink (a lot of ways this could be wrong for me) but this story is fucking perfect.

Emerson and Kieran are as close to fated mates as humans could be. They face so many personal issues but nothing stands in the way of how perfect a fit they are for each other. Seriously if you want a excessively well written, perfectly narrated reminder of why we all fell in love with romance novels in the first place, get this book. GET THIS BOOK

Such a sweet, cute and steamy listen!

KM Neuhold—you continue to outdo yourself with every book you write. Brave Boy is incredibly sweet, romantic and all steamy. I absolutely adore Emerson—he is sooo adorable and sweet and strong. Kiernan is so hopeful and a good man. He’s a loving daddy who hasn’t had the the best of luck, however his and Emerson’s story is so sweet. I love it and I cheered along every step. They are perfect together and so steamy. I love the way Neuhold took this trope and made it connect so well with this story... you just have to read it. 5 stars for this story!! With narration by Tim Paige and Liam Dicosimo—they do such a great job with bringing these characters to life—it was cute and I love the accents for most of the characters. Fun to listen, steamy and I can’t wait for the next one.

Tedious 2.5 stars

As this book went on I found myself rolling my eyes more and more, and nearly didn’t finish it. Just didn’t feel emotionally connected at all and the cheese got a bit much.
