Publisher's Summary

Dear Santa, I want a Daddy who will take care of me....

Sanders doesn't believe he'll actually find a Daddy through a dating app. He's not much to look at, and his life is a mess. A Daddy would never be interested in someone like him. But he's lonely.

He hasn't been kissed for three long years.

Briggs moved to the small tourist town of Red Canyon, Utah, to get away from his fast-paced life in Chicago. But he also moved away from most of his dating prospects. Downloading a dating app seems like an obvious choice. The boy he messages is sweet, nervous, and drinks up every word of praise Briggs gives him. But he's too nervous to meet face to face, claiming that Briggs won't like him as much in person.

How can Briggs convince his boy that he's everything a Daddy could ask for?

Contains mature themes.

Narrator phoned it in

I enjoyed this book when I read it. I was excited to see the narration was done by one of my favorite narrators. I was shocked at poor quality of this narration. I was unable to finish. I’m so disappointed. The narrator really didn’t seem to make any effort to distinguish any of the characters. I never knew who was talking at any given moment. I know he can do better than this. I stopped at 25%

What in the world??

Dear Daddy, Please Praise Me is probably one of my all-time favorite books and to say I was excited to see it on Audible is an understatement. The narration of this book is TERRIBLE!!! It sounds like the narrator skipped the part where he’s supposed to read the book a few times before he begins the narration because his voice sounds like he’s pointing to each word as he reads it! There are no voice differentiations between characters and inflections are all in the wrong places. There is NOTHING enjoyable about this audio book. I’ll be sure to skip Tristan James from now on. I’m still debating on returning this and getting another book by these authors, that way I can still support them.

ᗯOᑎᗪᗴᖇᖴᑌᒪ ՏTOᖇY, ᘜOOᗪ ᑭᖇOᗪᑌᑕTIOᑎ, 𝘏𝘰𝘳𝘳𝘪𝘥 ᑎᗩᖇᖇᗩTᎥOᑎ

Absolutely one of my favorite books & I was so very excited when I discovered the audio had been released!! Not sure how I missed it … until I started listening 😶 The narrator sounds very like an automaton, completely devoid of emotion throughout a very emotional story!! The inflections were all wrong and it just wasn’t enjoyable at all. The 𝒐𝒏𝒍𝒚 reason I finished and didn’t return 𝘋𝘦𝘢𝘳 𝘋𝘢𝘥𝘥𝘺, 𝘗𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦 𝘗𝘳𝘢𝘪𝘴𝘦 𝘔𝘦, is because I adore these two authors and will always support A. Bellows. I have listened to many good books from Tantor; however, I will likely be avoiding Tristan James from this point.

Not a fan of the Narration

The storie was cute but there were several times I had to stop.istening because the narrator was almost robotic. It ruined much of the story for me.

Fabulous

I became a fan of this narrator in previous installments of this author’s books. When you read the story it’s awesome add a voice and it’s a new level of wow.

This Voice Actor Though...

Dear voice actors: Please only read for books you like! I have a hard time not finishing a book once I start it. Even if it's not great and it's a struggle. I love everything in the books description and couldn't wait to read it. Unfortunately, I chose to listen to it. I honestly have no idea if the story is good or not because the voice actor completely butchered it. I made to chapter 11, and that was hard. It almost felt like this guy is straight and doesn't like gay men. Like he was sarcastic on purpose while reading it. Just read the story on Kindle and skip the audio on this one. Not everyone can be Kenneth Obi or Micheal Dean, but damn!

Meh

I had high hopes for this story. I found it to be light fluff. However, the narrator made listening to this book just a hair’s breath from painful. All the characters sound almost the same and there was no real feeling in his reading and interpretation of the characters or the story. Hopefully practice will make perfect. I won’t be listening to this narrator again anytime soon.

This narrator is ruining it

I love the story but the narration is stilted, rushed, lacks emotion and avoids to differentiate the voices.
I am going to refund and buy the book.

A great daddy & his boy holiday story

This is a great daddy & his biy story whivh I have read before and loved it, and still do so.
However I found a of lot the narration staccato and disüassuonate sounding, It didn't sound as fluent and well done; as I am used to by this narrator.
