My name is Parker Hale and I single handedly brought down a Dynasty.

For me, life has been a study in bad decisions and worse results.

My party boy days landed me with one foot in the grave, but Rebecca Sloan pulled me back from that ledge.

She’s here for me when I need her most and all I do is disappoint.

I’m scared to lose what we have.

I need to fix this mess before it’s too

I recieved this book for an honest review from the author.
David Michael does it again. Very few times have I been pulled into a book that made me laugh, made my cry and made me pissed off all in one book.
Parker had me laughing to the point my husband thought I was crazy.
I love the Dick Dynasty Brothers and can't wait to read Preston's.
I found another favourite author!

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This book is one of those rarities that made me laugh and cry. Seriously I was only 5% into the book when I almost spewed my wine out across the room.  Two words…Mitch and vagina lol!

Parker is one hot mess.  His life has been in constant turmoil caused by drugs and alcohol which, in turn, has landed him a one way ticket to the ER. 
His family has had enough and his mom places him on house arrest in hopes he will get his shit together. 

In comes Rebecca aka Becks

OMG...this one seriously made me laugh out loud and then want to cry in the very next moment. What a crazy, emotional strung-out and dysfunctional family...but with a lot of love buried deep inside those explosive emotions.
Parker starts off with a bang...a beautifully poetic but sad look at what could have been the end of a beautiful life...before it gets pulled back from the darkness. The beginning was very well written in such a way to draw the reader in and grab you by the

Parker is the middle brother in the Hale family. He has it all. He is a popular porn star, he's a huge player and he has a drug problem. When one night of fun lands him in rehab, he doesn't know if he's ready to be sober. He knows his family is at the end of their ropes with him. When his brother's girlfriend, Holly, can't be there to pick him up from rehab, she sends her best friend, Rebecca.

So Parker. I'm not sure what to say.

I enjoyed reading the book. There was a ton of humor, lots of heat, and well, a little confusion. The story was good, but I never felt the connection between Becks and Parker. It was, I dunno, not there for me. Which is kinda weird, because separately, I really liked these characters. They just didn't seem to mesh for me.

Parker was fab. I love a good addict that is trying to get his shit together. Rebecca was fun (although some of the humor was a little OTT a

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

I was delighted to get to review this book, as I had so loved Porter (book 1). This is quite a different story - there is still some great humour, but actually it is a really poignant story. Holly's best friend Rebecca finds herself drawn to Parker, Porter's dissolute younger brother. Neither of them are into relationships, but somehow the attraction is more powerful than they seem willing to control. The music sessions

I loved this book!!!!!!! I have been waiting for it for what seems like forever. After reading book number one I have been impatient to read this one.
I loved getting to know Parker and Rebecca. They both have a lot of history they need to deal with in order to move on and be truly happy in their lives. This book is full of emotions. It took me on an emotional roller coaster. Happy, sad, angry, heartbroken and even parts that were hysterical.

Parker Hale is THE character that I want to strangle and hug all at the same time. I found myself equally wanting to shake him at times and then cheering when he finds the one thing that keeps him grounded. Becks. Throughout the book, these two pull you along in their journey for love and insist that you participate in the emotion. Both broken and guarded, their walls begin to crumble and they learn to trust in each other.

I loved this book so much! David Michael has, once again, created a worl

Breathtakingly brilliant, the best book David has written so far, hands down. Don't get me wrong I've absolutely loved each and everyone of his books, but Parker, WOW!
I'm so glad it started where Porter finished (curse you cliff hanger!) and it's all mostly based solely on Becks and Parker. Parker is definitely my favourite porn star and I love the relationship between Becks, Holly and Mitch, I want one just like their's.
This book gave me some serious feels, definitely recommend this book, you'

4.5 Stars!!!

I was given this book in turn for an honest review

Parker was ready to change, he wanted to change; the only thing he lacked was support and belief in himself. When Rebecca enters his life she creates an aura of strength that Parker desperately needs. Both carry haunted pasts; are they strong enough to survive or will their demons be too much to bear?

Since reading Porter I was more than ready for Parker’s story. David Michael had left us hanging in book #1 and I was more than ready t

Of all the Hale boys in the Dick Dynasty, Parker is the one that I have been most looking forward to.

While I loved Porter, I LOVED Parker.

Parker is full of emotion, full of attitude. There is a lot more angst and I felt a lot more substance than Porter (not that Porter didn't have any, but this is just ramped up).

Parker took me on an

Parker is the second book in the Dick Dynasty Series, and so far it's my favorite! I loved Porter but something about Parker got me. Maybe it's the playful bad boy in him that won me over. I am sure that was part of it but there is definitely more to him...

Parker is the middle Hale brother. Like his brothers, he is a porn star. The party boy one of the three. The fuck-up of the family. The one that almost died from an overdose. He is also the one that wants to prove that he is ready to change. H

I'm not going to lie I was expecting something pretty dark here, in the first book in the series Porter, we meet Parker, one of three brothers, not forgetting Preston, who are the air apparent to the well known Hale Porn Dynasty, their father was a star, but after many coke addled years of numerous affairs (yes even in adult firm a sense of monogamy outside of work hours is possible) it seemed that Senior Hale wasn't quite the type of man his sons looked up to and admired.

WOW DDT#2 is another hit from this author !! I enjoyed Holly and Porter in book 1 , loved meeting the other characters that are giving us their stories now and craved this book due to the cliffhanger and my desire to need to fix Parker !! I do have to say I wasn't a big fan of his family in this story - I know they are going through struggles due to Parker and his bad choices but even Holly was very bitter and mean. Anyhow - I enjoyed how it all came together , felt the connection immediately ,

At the end of Porter I knew I had to dive right into this book. I knew deep down that it was going to be a tougher ride then book one and oh my, it was amazing!

Rebecca was an amazing secondary character as Holly's best friend and to say I was super excited to see her as a leading lady, well that's an understatement. She was just as funny and sweet, yet naughty as I thought she would be!

Oh Parker! He screwed up a lot but deep down he was this sweet man and I loved his flirting. It had me laughi

It's been a long wait for Parkers story. Was I disappointed? Definitely not. Am I absolutely 100% in love with it? sadly no.
Parker has always been the royal screw up of the Hale family. Drugs, alcohol and easy women. A cocktail for disaster. After hitting his lowest a spitfire of a woman is put in his path. Turns out that woman would be his absolute support in getting himself straight.
Rebecca is a whole heap of broken on her own but she sees something in Parker from the moment they meet. They

Parker picks up right where things left off in Porter. I was clutching my heart right from the start. The tears were aplenty. Seriously, that's two books about porn stars that have made me cry! Yes, cry! Porter had an emotional tinge to it but Parker was jammed packed with emotion. Between Becks and Parker, I was a mess.

I wasn't sure how the story would play out because this time around, I didn't read the blurb because I just knew I wanted Parker's story. I didn'

I knew I was going to love Parker. Everyone loves a reformed bad boy, right?
He came to us on the back of a massive cliff hanger, we knew his story would be trouble while at the same time heart breaking and beautiful. He's that type of guy, he messe

David Michael has written us another AMAZING story with Parker, Book Two in the Dick Dynasty. It has everything you want in a book and had me reading it all in one sitting. It had me laughing, crying, cheering for specific people in the book, expecting things to happen and then totally surprised when they didn't.

When Porter, Book One in the Dick Dynasty ended, I was stunned, shocked, scared and praying for positive in what was to come next. David Michael has developed a story that has touched ve

Another great book in the Dick Dynasty Series. I loved Parker & Rebecca's story. This book had me swearing, it also had me smiling and it definitely made me laugh time and time again. I wanted to strangle Parker but as the story went on I found myself rooting for him and pissed off at everyone who wasn't in his corner. I loved Mitch and Rebecca's friendship it had me howling at times.

Parker is the middle child, and Rebecca tells him he has the middle child syndrome as well. Growing up as a dick dynasty member he's had major downs, and huge setbacks. Rebecca now in his life is his one and only supporter in believing he can keep his head up and his nose clean, literally.
Rebecca has had just as much trouble emotionally as Parker has just in different ways. The bond these two forge allows them to grow emotionally individually and as a couple.

This book is a new age love story th

Omg omg omg! And I thought Porter was great. This takes the cake and there's still one to go! Parker is the screw up...has the porn deal but can't keep sober. After a near fatal overdose, he wants to be a better man but can't seem to find the motivation. Enter Rebecca. She gets suckered into picking him up from rehab and their story begins. She is the first to actually care. They both have baggage but can they each support the other? Can she be his rock and deal with the negativity of her friend ...more

For someone who doesn't really like reading books written by men, I simply can't ignore the sheer brilliance of this man, and author. He made me love him with the story of Porter and his porn d**k but Parker...Yeah, he made me a lifelong fan with this book. I simply can't see how he could get rid of me now.

FEELS!!!! This book will give you ALL the feels!! Parker & Becks definitely have a bit more angst and feels in their story, but I think this is where David shines as an author. There is something that will get everybody in the feels. You will most likely laugh until you can't breathe (and possibly pee your pants), you will have watery eyes and a mushy gooey heart, and you may feel like you got kicked in the gut.
It all comes together in an amazing story that you don't want to miss out on.

Outstanding! Parker needs help and he needs to feel valued. Can Rebecca open her heart? Will she compromise her relationship with her best friends?

David Michael's phenomenal writing gave me a front row to all the excitement in this book. Parker was filled with comedy, tough real-life problems and hope. Although this book has it's HEA I'm itching to read Preston's story, the third brother in the Dick Dynasty.

Parker is book 2 in this hilarious series by David Michael. I really enjoyed Porter, but I loved Parker. I knew he was going to give me a good, emotional, hot ride! Parker almost dies from an overdose and it appears that his family has written him off. He doesn’t blame them, but he's trying to change and wants their support. No one is willing to look past his mistakes until he meets Rebecca. She's a friend of Holly's who's his last resort for a ride home from rehab. Rebecca hates him before she ...more
