Publisher's Summary

I’ve never been a Daddy before, but now it’s all I want to be....

I’ve always thought Kinsey was hot AF, but now that I’ve come to know him, he’s so much more than a super sexy silver fox. He’s kind and caring and so damn courageous.

He’s also vulnerable and needy, and it lights me up like nothing else. I know I’m 20 years younger, but I want to take care of him.

I want to be his protector, his strong man, his knight in shining armor.

I want to be his Daddy.

New Daddy at 47 is part two of a duology, an emotional and yummy romance with an age gap, loads of hurt/comfort, and a beautiful Daddy/boy relationship that ends with an HEA. It also contains themes of addiction and religious homophobia.

This was the better half of the story

This “duology” should have been one novel. The first was not a cliffhanger. It was a novel artificially sliced in the middle and made two.

There’s a lot of education about religious homophobia and opioid addiction and recovery, with a little gay history thrown in. This could be good for someone who doesn’t already have an awareness of such things. I absolutely believe learning the histories and struggles of people different from ourselves is the key to ending discrimination. However, this nearly-48-year-old gay woman found all the preaching and teaching tedious. The information could have been more cleverly woven into the storyline.

There is a bizarre tie-in to characters from the Perfect Hands series. If there are more stories written in this series and the Perfect Hands connection is strengthened, it could be a nice way to expand the world and have a large group of interconnected books, characters, and storylines. As it stands it comes across as an attempt to bait readers into buying another book (much like splitting this one did). The random meeting of a couple from another series was not in any way integral to this story. It could have been any random meeting of random new characters and would have worked exactly the same in this story. I guess time will tell if it is a clever start, expanding this world, or a shameless cameo to make people buy books.

John Solo did what he does. He’s a decent narrator. The material he was given to perform was not the best.

Bottom line, I was looking forward to this story and found myself being disappointed by it. Both parts 1 & 2 are necessary, making it a more pricey selection, and all the telling/teaching leaves the storyline lacking.

Mixed feelings

My problem with this book is the way religion is portrayed. I realize there are extreme churches and teachings out there. But there are so many more that are teaching the love of God. I was glad that Ben’s uncle was a Pastor with a positive message. We need more of that instead of stories that keep dwelling on how bad church is.

Ben’s character is really great. He is caring and patient with Kinsey. He gives him the space to find his place while he recovers.

The narration was not my favorite. I hated that he made Kinsey sound so weak and whiney when as a Dr., in recovery and overcoming his past, we know he is a strong. His voice for Ben was much better. I did enjoy much of this book but others were just too cringe worthy for me.

Compelling & Beautifully Heartfelt! Exceptional 🎧📚🎧

This is an amazing conclusion to the “Forty-Seven Duology” and this book is just as captivating as the first book, “Clean Start at Forty-Seven”, it also has all the feels and tugged on my heartstrings too. You can feel how much heart Nora Phoenix put into this story, the emotions pour off the pages and slammed into my heart. Kinsey and Benoni’s relationship continues to grow, morphing into something deeply meaningful and extraordinary. Kinsey is learning to put his demons and addictions behind him and is getting stronger, more confident while moving forward one step at a time and becoming the person he was always meant to be. And he could not have a better partner by his side, Benoni, is supportive and understanding, his patience and maturity level is admirable. And when Kinsey realizes what he wants and needs in a partner and lover, he gives him that and is a natural in his new role. This beautifully written and wonderfully plotted story, I loved how Kinsey and Benoni’s story played out, also loved how Kinsey worked to make things right with his family with no compromises. There are many loving and heartwarming moments that moved me like no other, and the sexy times were steamy and well done. Nora Phoenix, thank you for another amazing story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the fabulous narration, John Solo continues to deliver an outstanding performance, bringing these characters and their story to life. He has a complete understanding of the characters he portrays, gives each a voice that fits that character’s persona perfectly, sounding believable in every role he plays and just as I picture the character to sound. You could hear how much heart he puts into his work as he captures the characters’ emotions and projects them into his performance and has you feeling every single one. John Solo is an entertaining storyteller and versatile voice artist, his narration enhances an already brilliant story to another level. Thank you for another exceptional listen, it is always a pleasure to listen to your works.

It's All New

I love the way this story progresses seamlessly from the first book. This book seems to focus a bit more on their relationship with each other and with others that are part of their lives. I like how they strive to be honest and upfront. While there is pain and struggle that is seen between and the other characters that are part of their lives it was gratifying to see for the most part that they can move forward together and still maintain those relationships that are important. I know this little series is done but I kind of hope Leif gets a story someday.
I listened to the audio version and enjoyed it very much.

Beautifully written, very moving

This is a really heartwarming story of how someone can come to love themselves and their circumstances despite great pain and sadness, and how compassion and love can heal the deepest wounds. Fair warning, it is a story, so yes, it is on the idealistic side of things, no doubt many people's real life experiences are not so positive, but it's a lovely picture of how things can be.
The daddy/boy relationship between Benoni and Kenzie is just beautiful; if you enjoy this kind of warm, comforting, nurturing vibe, then treat yourself to these two books! I think they should definitely be read together, they're really one book in many ways.
The author has a way of writing about really difficult topics in a sensitive and accessible way, and can move you to tears without breaking your heart - some of my other favourite authors aren't as kind!(Yes, I'm looking at you, Hailey Turner)
John Solo is a great narrator for this story, a very emotive and well paced delivery that's easy to listen to and get lost in.

Wow

I loved the book of this but OMG the audible was simply amazing. How John does all those voices is beyond me. So put Noras words and John's voice well I'm in heaven. One I know I will definitely listen to again.

The love continues

I love these books! Beautiful, emotional and very careful (in the meaning full of care). Benoni and Kinsey are finding their dynamics and their relationship grows. We also learn how Kinsey got his injury and get to follow him on his journey of healing, physically but mostly emotionally.
John’s performance is so good. Emotional.

All new daddy in more than one way.

This is a continuation of book one in the duology. I would advise to start with 'Clean start at forty seven', since this book won't make a lot of sense without reading/ listening to that first.
This book is a proper hurt/ comfort story.
The relation between Benoni and Kinsey develops further and becomes more daddy boy like. On the other hand Kinsay is mending his relationships with his children and coming to terms with moving on after religious trauma ( it is prevalent in the series) and recovering from addicction. I appreciate that a point is made that NA/AA is not the 'holy grail' to remain in recovery.
As a random mention about this book, I absolutely adored the fact that Kinsey finds out what happened with his childhood crush.

Narration was for me 4-, at a certain point I just had to stop listening for a bit since the narrator got on my nerves.

Enjoyed mostly but . . .

Let's put it out there to start with, I'm not into the daddy kink. I don't really like it and usually, avoid books with it. Each to their own and if others like that, then they will like this.

It was a great way to finish off the story from the first book and I found all the religious stuff in it very interesting. I'm not religious at all. Probably you could call me an atheist, but I found the discussions around religion very interesting. How one church can view sexuality one way while another views it differently. The hypocrisy that is found in many religions and how they interpret the Bible is extraordinary. Interpreting it so it matches with their bigoted beliefs. It is astounding.

While this is a book of fiction, you can't help wondering how many lives in the world have been messed up because of those so-called beliefs. It is amazing that Kinsey hadn't found drugs sooner or something else. I really felt for him.

There is the daddy relationship with Benoni being the daddy. It seems weird considering he is much younger than Kinsey, but in many ways, it is Benoni teaching him the ways of the world and showing him how to live his true self. The boy teaches the man I suppose.

I loved the audio by John Solo, as I nearly always do. He is amazing and I look for books that he narrates. One of my favourites.

I think Nora Pheonix told a powerful story beyond the romance aspect of this book. I enjoyed listening to it, well except for the kink parts, but hey that is me. It was well worth the two credits I had to use to listen to both.

Love wins!

Fabulous story of how two men connect. Beautifully written by Nora Phoenix who knows how to write MM books with flair and heart. Adding the two characters from 'Firm Hand' was a hint of genius. The Narrator was excellent as well. I had read the stories first then bought them in Audio.
