description This book was super good. Whenever anyone asks me about this author's books, I like to say she writes "intelligent smut." Sure the books tend to be quite "insta-lovey" and the sex plentiful, but I can always count on getting a well developed and interesting plot to go along with those things. This book was no different in that respect. It was well written. Well paced. The plot was engaging. It was sexy. It was sweet. It made my heart hurt. It made me smile, and it was all wrapped up in a satisf

I don’t usually read daddy romances (I think I’ve only read one or two) but this one was so good!

I have to say the sugar daddy-sugar baby thing wasn’t too heavy. They start their relationship like that out of necessity but it turns out to be so much more. I loved Misha and Ciara! Even though there’s a 20 year age difference between them (she’s 22, he’s 42) they are perfect for each other. I also liked the suspense and action specially towards the end.

Overall Opinion: I read other reviews and found that the general consensus was that this was smut with "more". I agree to certain extent. I was looking for a fluffy, sexy read after a downer read -- and I got it. I did good in that I wasn't really expecting much out of that "more" and wasn't disappointed. While I think it had some story along with the hot scenes, I don't think it really was that deep of a story. I haven't read many "daddy" dynamic books, so I was a little unsure about th

Normally I would skip this book assuming it was just a quick smut read. Not that I have an issue with short smut reads but this time I was just looking for more. But the reviews suggested more and I was intrigued.

My expectations for Come to Daddy was pretty high. I know Brianna can write and I've always enjoyed her writing style and stories. She did not disappoint! Although my initial impressions going into this was that this was going to a kinky 'daddy/age-play' novel, but surprisingly it wasn't. This focused on the sugar baby/daddy relationship between the couple, the secrets they're keeping, and the line between business and pleasure.

When I started to read this book I was wondering if I was reading a Brianna Hale book. I’ve only read one book by this author and the Protégé was excellent. It was edgy, angsty, well-written and totally sexy.

I don’t have anything truly bad to say about Come to Daddy, but it didn’t read like a typical Brianna Hale book.

Come to Daddy is a no-muss, no-fuss sort of smutty read. I love the storyline, but I had a problem with execution and flow.

I absolutely love Brianna Hale's daddy stories and her newest release Come to Daddy is no exception. 

You need to meet Misha and Ciara. Misha, the slovenian billionaire who made me swoon, and Ciara the young student who needs money to pay off her parents' debt. 

In this book the author takes us in the Sugar Daddy/ Baby relationship.

This book is so much more than what the blurb suggests. If we're just going by the synopsis, you would think that this is just a daddy kink novel with lots of sex and very little plot. However, I was encouraged by the reviews that said that there's more to this and they were absolutely right! So yeah, I'd say the blurb undersells what this book is about. I don't even consider it as a daddy kink type of story.

"Come to Daddy" is the story of Ciara and Misha.

Recently, I've been shying away from contemporary erotica, but for some reason when I read this blurb, it pulled me in.

When Ciara Alders is orphaned after the death of her money hungry parents, she never expects to be indebted to Damir Ravnikar, mob boss and owner of Ravnikar Enterprises.
The epitome of evil, Damir wants his money back that her father stole, and is about to force her to strip until she is given a beacon of hope..

Well, this was quite different than I expected and all for the better. I enjoyed pretty much everything about this book.

This hero was not a people person. He was growly and irritable. Despite coming from an awful background and being connected to an even worse present that represented danger to the heroine, as well as anyone who would double cross them, he actually tends to be a bit of a teddy bear. I enjoyed his interactions with his personal assistant as well as his seemingly inability to fun
Once again, Brianna brings her deliciously naughty writing along with a hot, grumpy, and downright sexy Daddy to us. Misha has so many hidden layers, and I loved uncovering them with every turn of the page. He may not think he wants love, but Ciara signing up to be his sugar baby flips his world upside down.

Brianna Hale brings her signature style of writing, drawing you into the world of Sugar Daddy and sugar baby and delivers a steamy, yet suspenseful story that I got sucked into! Her words as

BR with my najdražjima prijateljicama Melanie and Ursy!! We had fun!

I have mixed feelings about this book. I very much liked the first half. Well, just not the premise. I think it was utterly unbelievable and kind of stupid. But I did like the relationship between Ciara and Mischa. The title and the blurb made me think the story would have a kinky dd/lg theme. However, I liked this sugar stuff so much better. I don’t remember that I would have read about sugar daddies before.

I don't usually do this because i don't always trust arc's reviews but when this author asked me i was really curious about this book and since i loved her book "the protege" i wanted to try it.
I was surprised with the direction of the story, it's not exactly what i was expecting but it was interesting and gave more substance to the story. Ciara and Misha were intriguing characters with a lot of chemistry ! It goes pretty fast bet

Brianna Hale’s Come to Daddy is everything that I expected and then some. It had twists and turns but also romance that made my heart get the feels. This was a sizzling, filthy, and romantic affair. Full of action, so delicious, and definitely swoon-worthy. Sexy Daddy Misha has so many hidden layers, layers that us the readers get to see get uncovered with every page. He doesn't believe in love but when he took Ciara on as his "sugar baby", she ends up turning his life upside down and in the pro ...more

First of all: I DARE YOU to read the full title and not hear JLo in your head. Now that that's over with (your welcome), Come to Daddy hooked me full on in the prologue - I was so not expecting for the book to start off like that, nor for us to be introduced to the male lead first. Setting up the story this way is GENIUS on Brianna Hale's part and really sets up the book to be unputdownable. Even thought Misha is standoffish and aloof, you sympathize with him. And you definitely empathize with C ...more

Wow. This was different then I thought. it would be but not in a bad way. It had twist and turns but also romance that made my heart warm and fuzzy. Ciara and Misha were amazing together. I liked the banter and the way Ciara didn’t really shy away when he was a jerk. It was a crazy ride to get to the end and that ending..... I’m not sure about. I’m glad that the main characters got a HEAFN but I’m still intrigued where the author will take this series.
