Yay for this. I totally didn't realize this was the sequel to Hard as Teak which was one of my first M/M reads. I loooved Kevin and Teak and it was really really great how they tied into this story. And it was 4 years later so long enough for catching up with them and seeing them settled to be a nice surprise.

Now on to Drew and Luis. I always loved Drew. He was such a sweet guy and was so good when Kevin and Teak got together that I felt bad and wanted to know that he got some lovin' too. What I

This is another one that I remember reading right after Hard as Teak, back before I joined GoodReads. While I found Hard as Teak enjoyable (but I don't remember exactly why) I disliked this one enough to completely delete it from my Kindle, which is why I never entered it here at GoodReads until I saw Amanda add it to her "to read" list and it jogged my memory. I don't think it would be fair to give it one star without stating a reason, so I'll give it two and those that know my taste in M/M rom ...more

Just when I thought I couldn't dislike a character more than I disliked Kevin (from the first book) we meed (again, since he was also in the first book) Drew. In book 1 Drew seemed like a decent enough guy. He'd been interested in Kevin but didn't pursue him when he realized that he and Teak were getting together. That was decent of him. That's where the decency ended, though.

In this book he is dating (sort of) Kyle, another agent at his place of work. Kyle's obviously really into Drew. Drew al

A flirtatious tale with a heavy streak.

The Big Easy is the perfect location to imagine unbridled acts of the uninhibited and this story could have easily have gone that route, but didn't. All the pageantry and play is a backdrop that emphasizes how some things get in the way or disguise the truth. Drew and Luis's story has a troubled past and they each need to relearn how to be with the other without the baggage.

Of course, baggage sometimes holds on longer than you think or realized. The truth

A little intimidation and attempted murder sure goes a long way towards getting priorities straight in one’s life but the payoff of a finally resolved romance is enough of an impetus to see it through until the end game. If he survives.

Ms. Church set up the plot elements in the first two chapters, giving readers a bit of background that ties the two heroes together. It was done with a natural easy flow by getting into each of the head

Is love ever truly lost? Or does it just hibernate, waiting until its passion can either be rekindled or banished forever? There's a mourning process which has to be endured for every breakup; you can't skip any steps; it's important to have closure. In 'Krewe Daddy' by Margie Church, Drew Rothem and Luis Herrera's relationship has never received closure; until they resolve their conflicts, one way or the other, neither of them will be able to move on. But what will it take to make this happen?

For the majority of the story, I was actually hoping Drew and Luis wouldn't get together. They didn't seem to gel as a couple. Plus, I really found myself liking Blair. However when Drew was brutally attacked and left for dead, I began to rethink my opinion of the duo. For a brief moment, I thought Luis was going to cheat on Drew and throw away all the trust they've reestablished. Thankfully, Luis' heart stayed true to Drew and finally they were on the road to a strong, healthy relationship.

*sigh* Ok I want to start with saying that I did enjoy the previous book in this series. This one though really did not work for me. It follows Drew who we saw in book one. I was a little confused at first because this story takes place a few years later and Drew is in another state and in a totally different job. The author catches us up not too far in to it so I was ok with that. Drew's now working in law enforcement and casually sleeping with a co-worker. Drew has never been able to commit to ...more

“Krewe Daddy” by Margie Church

I was so excited for this release that I snapped it up the second it became available on Noble Publishing rather than wait for it to become available at Amazon.

Margie Church’s book Krewe Daddy was a book I waited for since she first told readers she was going to write it last year. I waited in eager anticipation for this book, and wow was it worth waiting for. I loved this story! Margie’s previous book “Hard as Teak” was one at the top of my all time favorite boo

I honestly have no idea how to begin this review because I really want to do this book justice. I had been looking forward to the release of Krewe Daddy for AGES and when it finally came out, I was kinda worried that I'd be disappointed. That happens way too often - I wait and wait for something, and then am left feeling a little gutted that it wasn't as good as I'd hoped. But I can promise you this: Krewe Daddy did not disappoint at all.

I was hooked from the very first page. Unfortunately life

You have done it again, Margie Church! This M/M sequel to Hard as Teak tied up the questions that one would have after a book as to where some of the other characters are and how they are fairing. I loved that this was Drew's story and that Kevin and Teak were brought back so that we could see them years later and learn that they were truly happy. It was great to see that Drew was still friends with them and well and truly happy with the fact that they were in love and a genuine couple.

Drew Rothem is a Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries agent who also models for an outdoor photography catalog. Six years ago, out of insecurity and trust issues, he had an affair that ended his relationship with Luis Herrera. Neither man has moved on from the other. A chance meeting reignites their attraction, leaving them second-guessing their breakup. Can they make a relationship work as equals or will insecurity, mistrust, and the need to control come between them again? Not

A WONDERFUL FOLLOW-UP TO HARD AS TEAK: I just finished reading KREWE DADDY, Margie Church's exceptional follow-up to her best-selling novel HARD AS TEAK. One part police drama, one part m/m romance, KREWE DADDY follows the continuing adventures of Drew Rothem, one of my favorite characters from HARD AS TEAK. As Drew tries to build a new life for himself in New Orleans as a full-time law enforcement agent for the Louisiana Department of Department of Wildlife and Fisheries and a part-time male mo ...more
It took me sooooooo long to pick this back up after the first few chapters. All of the sex at the beginning of the book really killed it for me. Im not into sex for the sake of sex. I need some emotional connection but I see now that it was all setting up the backgrounds of the MC's. Although I still would have preferred for the sex to be glossed over. I enjoyed the story for what it was but I didn't feel any connection to the MC's. I just didnt see it. I didnt read the first book so that could ...more

This is the sequel to "Hard as Teak" and a bit better. Most of the time I liked it. It had more action and dialogues which suited me fine. I liked Drew. Some reviewers were commenting on his "screwing" around and that they didn't like him because of that. Okay, that didn't happen to me, this is a gay romance (or whatever) and not every gay man is automatically in a monogamous relationship the first time he has sex with someone (kind of female attitude to wish that).

So - Drew was mostly okay for

hen I heard the secondary character from Hard as Teak got his own story, I was jumping for joy. Drew was funny, sexy and lovable in the first book and he also had secrets I, as a reader, wanted to find out more of. Margie Church delivers a story that will alternately thrill you and make you cry. The story itself is like riding a roller coaster of emotions. You smile, sigh, shout and swear as Luis and Drew find their way back to one another. Margie Church is a talented author who knows how to wri ...more

I loved this book. I read the first one call Hard Teak and had to read this one to find out what happen with Drew. Even though he has a small role in Hard Teak. I was hoping Margie Church would write a book for him. This book is about second chance, a great love story plus what someone would do to prove how much he has change and how far he will go to prove it. Now after reading this one you would love her to write at lease two more books on two more of her men in the story because they need fin ...more

Immaturity and arrogance, among other things, broke Luis and Drew up six years ago, yet they've never moved on from each other. After a chance meeting at a local bar, Luis and Drew need to decide if they're going to try again which means dealing with past baggage and forging a new future.

While they're rekindling their spark, Drew's work life throws a major wrench when he testifies against a local gang member and the aptly named Retribution gang do payback. Will Drew and Luis be able to over

I loved the police drama in this suspenseful story. I also loved watching Drew and Luis learn to trust each other, put the past where it belongs and focus on a future they both want. When they are both tested, it's wonderful to watch them react in believable ways. This is a terrific book for men and women.

Really enjoyed this. I'm always wary of M/M as I haven't read much in this genre. The characters pulled me in and swept me away. Was really rooting for them to get together and get past that terrible thing called...male egos. LOL

Krewe Daddy is a gay romance novel by Margie Church with some minor BDSM overtones. The novel tells the story of Luis Herrera and Drew Rothem. Luis is a skilled graphic designer who spends his time playing Daddy/Dom to some of his clients, while working on spectacular Mardi Gras floats. Drew is a wildlife enforcement agent in New Orleans and a hot outdoor model on the side. Neither man has seen each other since their bitter break-up six years ago. Sparks fly immediately when they bump into each ...more

I'm in the middle about this one. Drew and Miguel are so back and forth with their trust for each other, so many misunderstandings and ready to think the worst of each wonder how as a couple they're even going to make it! But as a Fish and Widlife Preserve Officer in New Orleans brings Drew to the attention of some pretty hardcore criminals, the story does get very emotional with Drew almost getting beatten to death. Miguel comes thru as the partner Drew needs to get back on his feet ...more
The premise is good. Didn't realize until I started it that it was the second in a series. I wish I could have liked the MCs a little better, as I didn;t feel emotionally invested in either character.

The storyline has great potential, though. Maybe if I go back and read the first book, I will be pulled in more, but I do tend to be a bit prejudiced against 'cheating' stories when people are in a relationship, and both these characters, to me, anyway, acted very immature in their responses to each

This M/M romance (volume two in a loosely connected series) is not awful: I did not have the urge to throw my Kindle against the far wall, but that is all there is to be said about it.

It is fairly long -a good thing in itself- but the plot is really slow, often to the point of dragging. There is no real tension build-up, just a succession of bland scenes. Characters feels realistic in their emotional uncertainties but this is seldom good in a romance unless the author's writing skills are outsta

Have you ever read a book where a character makes all the wrong decisions and ends up with someone who doesn't deserve him and vice versa? Yeah, that's Krewe Daddy. While I appreciated the frank talk of sexuality and an attempt at breaking down a good number of stereotypes, I never got to "like" anyone in the story. Drew has almost no backbone in his personal life, Luis is a stereotypical entitled jerk, supporting players don't do a whole lot of interest and the's too pat, too clean, ...more

This started quite slow and disjointed for me, but gathered pace in the second half and I liked it more than I thought I would at the start.

I thought Drew was quite a juvenile character considering he was early thirties, chopping and changing his mind all the time and that kept me out of the story at the start. Unfortunately for Drew he suffers greatly in the story and I thought the parts about his recovery were well portrayed.
I didn't get much of a feel for Luis really, even after Drew's attack
