A Joyfully Jay review.

4 stars

A Boy Made of Sunshine was a sweet story with some lighter BDSM themes and a whole lot of Daddy kink. It isn’t going to be for everybody, but I think if you’ve wanted to try a Daddy/boy book, this could be a good one to consider. The BDSM isn’t super hardcore and the Daddy/boy themes are confined primarily to the bedroom.

Felix and Liam are well suited to one another, though they could have used a bit more fleshing out. They’re far from caricatures, but especially wi

Felix is a movie star who’s taking a break. He bought a house and a dog.
He got one neighbor, a beautiful, big grumpy of a man, Liam, who despises everything Felix does.
Felix much younger and quite playful and optimistic can’t stop poking him. Liam doesn’t want to talk or have any interaction. Until he understands what Felix is really asking for, to be disciplined. Thát can Liam do.
Not quite the way Felix hoped for, but he will do everything strict Liam asks for.

When I need good romance with hotness I'm 100% sure Colette Davison is the answer.

This book was so good, I have no words. I started reading it and the next thing I know I finished it. So easy to read and fall in love with the story and the characters.

Liam and Felix were adorable and so the opposite of each other. Felix full with smiles and sunshine while Liam the grumpy bear. It was so good. My heart smiled while reading this book.

I loved Felix to the moon, he was so adorable and strict. He w

Okay, all those who love a bratty, naughty boy, raise your hands. Yep, this one’s definitely for all of you! Felix definitely is a naughty boy, and he’s also a bit ostentatious when it comes to his belongings (though I must admit his coffee table sounds intriguing). He does need someone to get a handle on him, and though Liam’s grumpy self might not want anything to do with him, Felix’s personality—and persistence—wind up sucking him in.

This is very much an opposites attract story, and those of

This is a fun, sweet, hilarious, sexy and entertaining story with great characters. Felix is amazing and he is definitely in need of a Daddy to take him in hand. Liam is a grumpy and sweet man who hasn't had a boy for a long time but when his new neighbor pushes all of his buttons and is not deterred by his bad attitude he may have to deal with him in the only way he knows how. Teaching Felix patience is Liam's first and most difficult task and it leads to some funny situations as Felix enjoys b ...more

This was a nice story but got lost on the timeline, it takes place within a short period of time but they talk like it’s been a while and having a routine and then talk about how it’s only been a couple days; I had to stop trying to figure it out. Poor Felix, he really doesn’t know how to stand up for himself and it looks like he has let people make decisions for him because it’s easier. Liam helps him see that he can live his life how he wants and Felix has a big decision to make and it needs t ...more

A Boy Made of Sunshine was my first book by Colette Davison and I loved it so much! It's very well written and I loved Felix and Liam. Also Domino was so sweet. This book is so sweet, hot and sexy. Felix and his Daddy are amazing.

Liam and Felix's sweet, low angst romance was such a joy to read. I've always been a fan of Daddy/boy books, and this one is particularly lovely. Felix is, as the title implies, such a cute ray of sunshine that I fell in love with his character immediately. Even Liam, the solitary, grumpy bear next door couldn't resist his charm for long. 

It's been a while since I've read a book purely about the developing romance between two characters. Without any background family issues or stirred up drama,

A little bit kinky but so sweet!

Daddy/boy stories haven't been among my favorites but I seem to have been reviewing a lot of them lately and they are growing on me. A Boy Made of Sunshine is one that I really enjoyed. It's an age-gap story as well as a daddy kink one. I thought the writing was excellent and I loved that the author didn't keep harping on the age difference between the two MCs.

There is so much humor and cuteness in this book that it kept me smiling the whole time I read it. Among

Felix is a 25-year-old movie star who has been working pretty much since he was a little kid, so he decides to take a break and buys a house in the English countryside. Liam is his new neighbor, one that isn't too happy to have such a loud, young, annoying man so close to him. At least not until Felix's persistence starts wearing Liam's defenses down and he can see that perhaps Felix is the boy he's been wishing for.

Colette Davison's A Boy Made of Sunshine is a fantastic BDSM book.

This is a neighbors romance between the young actor Felix and the grumpy, older bear Liam. Felix is an actor taking a much needed break from work. He and his hot neighbor come together naturally. They are super hot as Liam teaches Felix patience.

Holy hotness! BDSM, exhibitionism, voyeurism, spanking, spreader bars, Daddy play. It is steamy and awesome!

And then there's the roses, which have a tender part in this story. And one ca

First, I want to thank Colette Davison and Gay Book Promotions for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

Opposites really do attract in Colette Davison’s latest book The Boy Made of Sunshine. Two totally different characters, backgrounds and ages apart-yet they both lent to a very unique storyline.

The cover of this book was so totally cute! The background and the shy awkward boy with the great smile on the front cover did the book justice. I commend the graphic designer on

Felix has been an actor since he was a kid, he’s now twenty five and he decides to take a break from acting so he buys a house at the countryside.
Liam used to be a Detective but he took an early retirement and is now enjoying a quiet life. When Felix moves to the house next door everything changes.

A fun story that has opposites attracted to each other and changing each other’s perspective on life.

Extremely well written and highly developed characters spin an interesting light hearted tale. It will have you laughing and smiling at some of the antics the boy concocts to get the attention and punishment from his grumpy bear neighbor.

A sweet story about an older grumpy bear and a younger bratty ray of sunshine. I adored this opposites attract daddy kink story. Liam is glad to spend his retirement away from everyone just tending to his roses. His quiet little life comes to screeching halt when his bratty, much younger, and incredibly attractive neighbor moves in next door. Liam hasn't had a boy for a long time and Felix makes it impossible for him to keep things at status quo. Felix has had his whole life planned out but need ...more
For the most part, A Boy Made of Sunshine was charmingly light and funny. The beginning, in particular, was hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing at Liam's irritation every time Felix got into his space or was purposely mischievous, irreverent and bratty. Liam was like a hedgehog, protecting his privacy and isolation, until Felix proved to be what the retired detective really needed in his life: the perfect boy to take care of, or to punish if need arised. And Felix, he'd never expected that movin ...more

I received an ARC copy of this book, and as I love daddy kink I could not wait to read it and I wasn't disappointed.

I really don't know if there was ever a boy who needed a daddy more than Felix. He was so cheeky that he really did deserve those spankings!!

Liam showed such restraint, how he didn't murder Felix I really don't know. Add in an adorable puppy Domino and you have a good funny, playful and very sassy read.

I read a lot of American MM authors so the word 'arse' was a bit off-putting as

Actor Felix Lee,buys a small country cottage because he's desperate for a break.
His neighbour Liam,is immediately put out by the outrageous furniture and giant painting,that he sees being moved in next door. He is even more put out when he spots his young beautiful new neighbour complete with puppy.
Liam's quiet life is about to be ripped apart in the most pleasurable way possible.

Low angst a grumpy Daddy and a cute puppy honestly what more could you possibly want.

Felix is burnt out he has been acting since he can remember and he just wants a break so when he buys a cute house in a quaint little village in England with a cute puppy he didn’t know his life would be changed by his cute but grumpy next door neighbor. Maybe all he needs is to wind him up a little and that will relax his grumpy neighbor.

A loving hand

Felix is a young actor in need of someone to reign him in. He has never really had anyone tell him no, so he is a bit of a brat. Liam just wants to enjoy his early retirement but having Felix as his new, nosey neighbor is hindering that. Felix pushes Liam on a daily basis and it makes Liam want to spank his bratty butt! Is that what Felix wants...and probably needs?? Does Felix need a Daddy to take care of him? The connection between these two was so naughty and sweet.

I received an arc copy of this book and fell in love with Felix. He's an out and proud gay actor who moved to a quiet village for some time off . He became interested in his neighbour Liam . Liam is an ex police man who retired early , wanting a quiet life . Felix enjoyed goading Liam over the garden fence in yoga pants . Their romance blossoms but then Felix goes back to America for a film audition . Brilliant , very funny would recommend

As usual Colette drew me in from the start. I adore her writing. I haven't read that many daddy kink books as it makes me feel a bit uncomfortable sometimes unless it comes with a good story line. I really enjoyed this story. It was both sweet and steamy. I liked both characters and how well suited they are and how good they are for each other. They are both each others happy ending and one they didn't think they needed. Thank you for another great story Colette 💜

A rainbow of a read

I loved this book. The two main characters sassy as a sunshine Felix and the grumpy bear Liam, are well thought out well written. Actor Felix is the new neighbour. He's a boy who needs a daddy, needs rules, needs to learn patience, He's hoping that being a naughty boy with his exploits will get him what he wants, maybe Liam will be The Daddy he needs, giving him The punishments and rules he needs. The book is funny, light hearted and a very joyful read.

Grumpy Liam and effervescent Felix were just what the other needed to shake things up, and get the HEA ending they do richly deserved. I would recommend getting this gem for yourself ASAP.

This book is adorable. Felix is happiness, sunshine and full of energy. Liam is cranky, and longs for the peace and quiet he’s used to, to last. This book has had me laughing so hard. I enjoyed the chemistry and the teasing. The characters truly come to life in this book. I simply loved it!

Funny, sweet and sexy, with very little angst and just the right amount of kink, this book has what it takes to be a one-seat read.
Liam and Felix couldn't be more different, yet somehow they match perfectly.
