What happens when your best friend’s son comes
home and he’s all grown up?
Devon Hoffman has a secret. He’s wanted a Daddy
all his own, but when you’re pushing fifty, you’re completely over the hill.
Newly divorced and trying to be single again after an almost thirty-year
relationship, he’s lost and needs someone to ground him. Except he’s anxious
and his depression intensifies until Bern returns after leaving the service and
the younger man suddenly takes an interest. Can he let his guard down and risk
losing his best friend or should he do whatever is needed to keep his secret
Devon has spent the last thirty years in a marriage that has
become increasingly sterile and devoid of love forcing him to hide who he
really is. Now that he’s almost fifty years old he has given up any hope of
finding a man who would not only want to be his daddy but who could accept the
fact that he is far from the idea of what a boy should look like. But Devon is
desperate to be loved in that way—he needs someone to guide him, take care of
him and help calm all the myriad of negative thoughts that chase around his
head every day.
When Bern hears that Devon is finally free, he returns
home—a place he had to leave several years earlier because he couldn’t stand
watching the man he loved being continually shut down by a husband who cared
for no one but himself. Bern has been in love with Devon since he was a teen
but was never able to express his feelings much less broach the idea of being
the man’s daddy. But now everything has changed and Bern is determined Devon
will be his boy—now all he has to do is convince the older man of his sincerity
and determination to be the daddy Devon has always craved.
If you are into daddy/little kink then look no further than
J.M. Dabney’s latest, Waited So Long.
To say this novella is hot is to not do justice to the sensual and emotional
impact the story has. This is hurt/comfort at its best and, honestly, the kink
is pretty darn erotic. I loved how Bern slowly but masterfully took control of
Devon, constantly reassuring him of his value while also treating him like the
boy he so desperately wanted to be. There was obvious love in everything Bern
did from punishment to playtime to rough sex in the bedroom. Every step of the
way, Bern made sure there was not only consent but desire on Devon’s part to
forge ahead and make their relationship essentially a 24/7 reality. Even though
Bern was many years younger than Devon he had done his homework and fully
embraced the daddy role for his boy.
Watching Devon slowly heal from a marriage that had left him
broken and alone was really the best part of this story. This was a man that
lived with anxiety and doubt—with little self-esteem and such deep sadness over
not being able to fully live as another man’s boy. When he can finally trust
that Bern won’t play a cruel trick on him and mock him after seeing him be his
little boy, their time together becomes even more intense and involved. They
move from simple petting and mild kink into domination and playing their roles
both inside and outside the bedroom. I have to say that this story really was
incredibly sexy and I am not usually a huge fan of this particular kink but the
way in which the author chose to develop these two characters and their
relationship made me a real fan.
Waited So Long is
sure to satisfy anyone who loves this type of kink and make new fans of those
looking to explore this type of story for the first time. I truly enjoyed
getting to know Devon and Bern and look forward to reading more by this author.
I locked myself in my house and went to take
care of emails and study my itinerary. I could retire, but what would I do with
myself? At least work kept me busy. It distracted me from the loneliness. I
worked because I had nothing left.
I took a seat at my drafting table as I worked
on the new design for my client. His steel monstrosity would clash with
everything around the building. It was a showpiece that had no more value than
broadcasting his wealth. Once again, my brain went back to wondering if it was
time to retire, maybe working for myself, but I felt I was too old to start
over. All I felt was doubt and insecurity.
When I was younger, I’d felt confident and
fearless. Every day was ripe with possibility, and now I weighed everything by
what was expected of me. I felt as if my life was over with; I wasn’t even
fifty and hopelessness weighted me down. When I looked in the mirror, I could
only see what I was and not what I could be. That, out of all the recent
events, was the hardest reality to accept. I viewed myself through a skewed
lens Lawrence had shaped.
My fantasies were still a cause of shame just as
they were for the past thirty years. I’d forbidden myself from demanding what I
wanted because what would people think when they knew the real me. The person
who existed beneath the façade. The respectable architect in a small suburb who
was just a shadow of his former self.
I was a middle-aged man with silver-streaked
hair and a belly, who dreamed of the impossible. I tossed my pencil aside and
got up. My mind wasn’t in it, so a shower and early to bed. Tomorrow was a new
