Teddy and His Bear is a bit of fluffy, sexy goodness. I'm not a big fan of Daddy/boy stories, but this book is sweet and not creepy at all.

Teddy was really childish, but that fit with his need for a Daddy who'd care for him and structure his life. Barrett had a need to nurture and protect. He was perfect for Teddy.

Some of the meddling and banter between the MCs and their besties felt forced. I had a hard time believing adults would act like this (and not all of them were subs/boys).

I love daddy kink..

4.25 stars

Teddy was adorable, and Barrett was the perfect daddy. I loved this.

Teddy comes home to his two boyfriends to find them waiting for him. They are breaking up with him and they want to continue as a couple, together, without Teddy. Teddy is heartbroken and didn’t see that coming at all.

Because he has no place to go, he moves in with his best friend. But even though his best friend is amazing, Teddy is still sad.

I absolutely loved this story between Teddy and his Bear. It was high on emotions, love, and happiness, with some steam and some kink thrown in as well.

Teddy has had a rough life, he’s been abandoned, been alone, and now most recently his two boyfriends unexpectedly broke up with him. Teddy is staying with his friend, when Barrett steps in and offers him a place to stay. Barrett is almost 20 years older than Teddy, and has tried to stay away from kink and his Daddy-ness after his own bad breaku
Fantasyland Daddy / baby boy kink. You know where sometimes in reading you can completely suspend your belief system and still manage to be entertained? Thirsting for more?

Daddy kink is very hot, super hot actually, when the participants are written as mature, free thinking adults.

Here we have an older, well educated man, a physician, pairing up with an emotionally stunted, immature man in his early twenties. I can easily see Teddy’s attraction. Daddy? Daddy has to have rocks in his head to fa

2.5 sickly sweet stars.

This started off pretty good but gradually got sweeter and sicklier as it went on. It was written well but it's just not for me. I need a bit of edge and bite with my kink.

Super sweet with a tiny dash of spice. This is the kind of story that is all about the warm cuddles, loving hugs, sweet kisses, and soft, kind-hearted heroes. It is almost angst-free, and it will leave you with a feeling of comfort and coziness. In times like these, my mind (and my heart) need all the sweetness and fluff they can find.
The story was ok. Teddy, at times, said thigs and acted like a 5 year old would. He acted more like an inexperienced teen than someone in his mid-twenties that had been in a threesome relationship for to years.

Very sweet and nicely written.

There's nothing spectacular about Teddy and His Bear, the plot goes where one would think and at the pace it should. The characters are creative though a smidge flat. This one is no where near as kinky as what I usually read - though there's a very nice scene at the local BDSM club with wax play, impact play, and exhibitionism. The authors keep all the kink tender and romantic, and very clean.

I think the thing that worked the best for me in Teddy and His Bear is the

What a great book about a kink that I wasn't too sure about before reading it! It was super sweet with very little angst. Teddy and Barrett were great primary characters and the secondary characters were intriguing too and I can't wait to read more about them.

I really quite enjoyed this ! It’s an easy, sweet Daddy / boy book that doesn’t go into age play - so good for most people who like a little kink. Teddy was a little immature at times, considering he’d come from a threesome, but I guess his naivety and sweet nature was what attracted Beckett. I’m keen to see the next few characters have their books.

I was excited when I started this. A Daddy kink and a guy whose just had a brokenheart. It was good in the beginning, but then Teddy became like a six year old kid. I can't see Teddy as an adult who has Daddy kink. He acted so childish and acting like a child. It was so annoying. I liked reading about this kink, but there's some books out there about Daddy kink way better than this one. I just can't with this one :(

Teddy and His Bear is the first book in the Oh My series, but also Andi James and Lila Wilde's debut release.

The beginning of the book broke my heart. Teddy was as sweet and giving as anyone should be in a relationship only to get his heart trampled on. Things did get better for him though, thanks to his friends and best friend, Tony. Who I loved and hope he gets his own book!

Barrett was a sweetheart, and I loved the way he loved Teddy after he stopped fighting his feelings. While it irritated m

One announcement and the world under Teddy's feet has dropped. Feeling sad and alone, abandoned, he finds comfort in friends and work. There's one other bright spot, though, and that's the handsome older man that frequents the coffee shop where he works. Barrett has a crush on Teddy too, but with his damaged heart and their age gap, not to mention his suppressed desires, he can't see a future where they're together the way he truly wants. With the help of an accident-prone co-worker Teddy gets a ...more

Adorable Teddy and his Daddy Bear.

I believe this is my first exposure to these two authors and I have to laud them for their smooth writing and storytelling.

My only gripe about the book was that there wasn’t much character growth. Barrett and Teddy felt a little one dimensional. I didn’t learn more about them through the story. They were presented as is and remained somewhat stagnant throughout.

And as for the daddy kink, it was very light. And most of the time it was explained, rather than being shown. I think the author

A Sweet Story Wrapped In a Bit of Kink!

Out of despair, sometimes comes amazing opportunities for love; that’s what happened to Teddy & his Bear (Barrett). I liked all the characters, the pacing and the story is well written.
An aside: I’ve read several of these Daddy Kink romance stories. I’ve noticed a pattern with the ‘Sweet Boys’, they seemed to be down on their luck, come from broken families, even have some neuroses. Which makes me wonder about whether the relationships are really as co

This was just a sweet, adorable, funny and cute story. I really liked Teddy in all his glory and insecurities. Bear sounded wonderful and caring. Loved all the supporting cast even accident prone Dylan. I look forward to the other books in the series.

Omg I am so in love with Teddy! Not having the best luck in life, I just wanted to cuddle and soothe him!
But no one was better for that job than Barrett!
It was such a beautiful story filled with tenderness, heart stealing moments and some good humour from not just the MC’s but side characters as well.
The story wouldn’t be complete without some sexy times thrown in too!
I really enjoyed this story and I can’t wait to read more about this group!
Bring on Leo!

A joy to experience Teddy.

I haven't read many "Daddy and Baby Boy" books. I never quite understood the differences between Daddy relationships and Don/Sub relationships. This story showed me again that true love in all its firms is beautiful. If this is the dream of a Daddy relationship, then I see the caring and devotion. I enjoy reading stories that expand my awareness.

Of course Teddy is so adorable, how can one not love him. That he has joy and gives joy even with his lonely life is amazing.

2 stars. Usually I am totally impatient for the MCs to hook up, but that's exactly when this book fell apart for me. As soon as Teddy realized that Bear was a Daddy and that he wanted a Daddy, it was like the author didn't know how to write conversation for a twenty something boy so he started to sound like an actual child. Ugh.

I love books with characters who have substantial age differences. Teddy and Barrett had eighteen years between them, which I found to be ideal. I love a good Daddy kink book on occasion and this was all about Barrett and his boy. Barrett is simply amazing. If there was ever a character who had a ton of patience that would be Barrett. I loved everything about him. As for Teddy, I liked him well enough but he often came across as extremely immature. This showed more and more as the story played o ...more

Love love love! That sums up exactly how I feel right now about this book. Teddy is freaking adorable, and I want to hurt everyone who has ever hurt him in the past. And Barrett.. man, I loved him instantly. These men are exactly what the other needs, but though there is definite attraction on both sides long before the book starts, the buildup of the relationship is a delicious slow-burn. This story is sweet and loving with light daddy kink that made my heart feel too big for my chest at times. ...more

This one was good and fun for quite a while (45%-ish, I'd say), then it just... lost its touch, I guess? I liked Teddy and Barrett both as individuals and as a couple for a while. Teddy, especially, was quite relatable and it was him that helped me get invested in the story - at least for a while.

Rooting for Teddy as I was, I decided to throw a blind-eye to the occasional grammatical errors and for the dialogue, which tended to be a little dry, unrealistic and lacking that emotional punch that I

It really is sweet, and wonderful, and perfect. There's a lot of love, some sadness, lots of funny, and loads of sexy. Teddy is just so adorable. I want to snatch him, put him in my pocket, and bring him home to spoil and love. He's just adorable. And Barrett, he really is the perfect Daddy, especially for Teddy. And I love how their names match up. That's just too cute. I can't wait to see the next books in this series.

Oh My, I love sweet Teddy

This is a very sweet and romantic story. I love the relationship build-up between the MC , it's progression , the kink aspect of it and how was explained in an easy and organic way. I fell in love with the main and secondary characters and the world build around them .

I enjoyed the low angst, easy to read and loving feeling of this tale. Looking forward reading the upcoming books in the series.

Oh my!

This was really sweet. Teddy is a bit naive, and I know he dove right into his role as a boy, but it almost felt like his personality changed, I had a little trouble there.

The scene at knots and the initial hookup were hot. I can't wait for Tony and his Tiger, guys. Also, shout out from Cincinnati.
