Dear Santa, 

I know I have a lot and I shouldn’t ask for more. But all I want is a Daddy that’s okay being a dad too. 
I love my daughter, but I’m still a boy at heart. I know what I’m asking for is hard. Maybe even impossible. But I have to try. 

Sebastian is happy with his life, but there’s something missing. A Daddy to call his own. When he goes on

Oh yeah, I loved this one, all the feelings, engaging characters, great development, steady plot!

Sebastian has a dream, a family, people around who would stay with you. He has a sweet six-year-old daughter and a foster mom, brother, and sister. Deep down there is a yearning for a husband and Daddy.

Would write a letter in the Cuffd app help?

To satisfy his friend, Maddox will go out with a boy from the Cuffd app, it will only be a one-time thing, casual, nothing more. But meeting Sebastian does s
I liked this more than I expected!
I've read a few of the books in this Naughty and Nice series, and a lot are just not that great. But here the writing felt smooth, and the more I read the more I started to enjoy it.

I really liked that Maddox was the younger daddy, while Sebastian was slightly older, took care of his daughter, but was still a boy. I loved that this was never an issue between them.

I was afraid these guys would try to keep is casual, since Maddox starts off by telling himself he d

Sebastian and Maddox weren't my favorite couple, but I still really enjoyed their sweet romance. 

Though at times I struggled to connect with the dialogue in this story, I immediately fell in love with all the characters in this book. Whether it was Dylan and Kendrick being the best wingmen ever, Sarah with her warm, welcoming presence, or Aria's youthful innocence, I was incredibly invested in their lives right from the start. It was easy for me to overlook the awkwardness of some of Sebastian a

Awww, I can’t believe this is the last book in the Naughty or Nice series. This whole series has been the best and I wish there were more books to read.

This one is definitely ranked my #2 favorite from the whole series. A younger Daddy, Maddox, who was a bit broken from his last boy and an older boy, Sebastian, who was a bit insecure about his age, his body, everything. Sebastian also has a 5 year old daughter and is looking for something more like forever.

They were both so cute together - I f

Dear Daddy, Please Trust Me is a wonderful Daddy kink romance. Part of the multi-author Naughty or Nice series, I love this Rheland Richmond gem!

A little who's looking for a Daddy. Nothing unique there, right? But, omg, the little has a child. As for the Daddy, he's not looking for a little since he was hurt in the past. I love this!!!

Sebastian's a single father. I love how he is with his child, but I love even more that he needs his own daddy. Enter Maddox, who's previously been hurt and wasn't

Dear Daddy, Please Trust Me is the 8th book in the Naughty or Nice series by multiple authors. Dear Daddy, Please Trust Me is written by Rheland Richmond. This story is about single dad Sebastian and Maddox. Sebastian is afraid that he is too old to be a boy. Maddox told himself he was done with being a Daddy but then he met Sebastian. Sebastian and his darling daughter touch something within him.

I loved their story. They were amazing together. Their story was sweet, sexy, hot and very well wri

I loved this twist on the Daddy/boy trope. Sebastian is a father to an adorably precocious daughter and is older than Maddox. That doesn't mean Sebastian isn't the perfect boy for Maddox. After being betrayed by his previous boy, Maddox is cautious and not sure he's ready for another relationship. But Sebastian is able to show him their relationship doesn't have to be a one-way street and he can be supportive and take care of Maddox, too.
Plenty of heat and not much angst at all. Definitely wort

Such a wonderful story full of unconditional love from a made family. The story is well written and the characters you can't help but root for.

It has to be hard to be a single parent and kinky, but I think Sebastian definitely built up a good support system.

Just ok

This book was just ok. I felt like the author kept forgetting what they wrote previously. Like Maddox asked Bash out on the phone after his shower because he technically didn't ask him out in the firsy place but then later in the book he was explaining to Bash how it was actually Declan he was texting first and who set the date up. Same with Ari's adoption I felt like the time line was all over the place for that.

Dear Daddy, Please Trust Me is the last book in the the wonderful Naughty or Nice Series. I love the concept of this series, a kink website’s holiday promotion of having needy boys write a letter to Santa asking for their perfect Daddy. Each book deals with a different spin on the theme and this one has so many that I love!

I love this book. The characters are genuine with their own flaws and insecurities, but trying to take the chances that will let them have their HEA. Maddox and Sebastian were perfect together. Maddox needed somebody who would genuinely appreciate and need his care whilst also valuing him as a person and providing him the support he needed. Sebastian needed somebody who wouldn’t let him be negative about himself and would give him all the love in the world, whilst also needing the love Sebastian ...more

This book was so sweet, I could cry...... Sebastian and Maddox were a match made in heaven.

Sometimes it is hard to find good books from new authors that I simply adore... I am happy to say that is not the case. I love a good book with angst, but...... I also love books that are funny, warm and fluffy.

Funny, warm and fluffy won out this time and I'm happy to say Rheland has found a brand new reader. Be careful Rheland, I'm gonna have to stalk you and read anything you've ever written and anyt

I was given a free arc copy from the author for review.

They saved the best for last. Though they are all really great.

Both the MCs are well developed and very loveable. They had great chemistry. I enjoyed all the other characters as well. The plot is interesting the whole way through. I read this all at once. Very low angst. Medium heat though some of the scenes were extra hot. I loved it. It's sweet, sexy and romantic. There are some insecurities, assumptions and miscommunication but given th
Heartwarming and original daddy kink holiday romance! I loved this story’s setup, with the boy being a single parent and (slightly) older than his daddy. Sebastian is simply endearing. He’s such a loving father to Aria but also lonely and battling with low self-esteem. You can’t not root for him. Maddox tugged on my heartstrings as well, though in a different way. He is drawn to Sebastian from the first, but he doubts his instincts, himself, and potential boyfriends because of past events – self ...more

Maddox and Sebastian are too sweet for words. The tenderness and care that develops between them made my heart ache in the best way. Struggling to trust in what he really wants and needs again after the recent betrayal by his ex, Maddox cannot deny his instant attraction to Sebastian. But it’s so much more than mere physical attraction. He quickly finds himself just wanting to take care of Bash and hold him, and just be whatever Bash needs from him. And no fear, there are a lot of moments in whi ...more

I truly enjoyed this make you feel good MM romance with a touch of daddy kink. Sebastian and Maddox were realistic characters with understandable flawed. This easy to read contemporary romance had a simple plot with low drama and angst which flowed smoothly. A quick read perfect for a day snuggling underneath a blanket with a warm cup of tea.

This is the last book of this series and one of the better entries. It's not a fluff piece. There's some interesting drama and dynamics between Maddox and Sebastian. They both have substantial character development as well. I loved reading their love story. Both men are charming and perfect for each other. I liked that Sebastian had a daughter, making the book feel more grounded.

I loved the small confrontation that Maddox has with his parents. Sebastian being able to shut them up and show off a

A sweet Daddy romance

Yet another wonderful story in the Naughty or Nice series. Rheland Richmond has written two men who are in desperate need of each other and it's only pushy brothers and best friends that get them connected in the first place.
Sebastian definitely needs a daddy to care for him as when it comes to work emergencies, he has no sense of self care and Maddox has been beaten down by his family's constant negative opinions and his ex boyfriends crappy actions. Together, There is a c

I thought the characters in this book were very well established, they didn't act outside of the bounds of their characters.
I felt the pacing could have been better though, as I struggled to stay engaged in the story and had to come back to it.
There were also some small plot issues that annoyed me (e.g. a character is on the phone, at no point does it say anywhere that the phone call ends, but then suddenly the phone is ringing again). These were quite minor and I feel these things may have not

I’m really enjoying this Daddy series by different authors and this one didn’t disappoint! I fell in love with Maddox and Sebastian and his little girl Aria. Maddox was an amazing daddy and didn’t deserve how mean his family were to him for following his dream to be a mechanic and have his own place with his best friend. Sebastian had grown up in the foster care system but had formed his own chosen family who were amazing and so supportive. He was so generous and deserved a daddy to love him and ...more

I have loved this series of books, all different but all with the Daddy theme.

This book has everything you want, Daddy kink, very light BDSM, a boy, family whether blood or not can treat you differently, not always how you hope. Family is what you make it sometimes.

We have a mechanic who is extremely good at what he does, but his family berate him for his life choices, he has major trust issues.

Sebastian's vulnerability and sweetness, but at the same time, his strength and hope in the future, Maddox's protectiveness and capacity of love, Dylan and Kendrick support and friendship and of course Aria.

I love that this book featured a daddy/boy dynamic that I don't see often. Sebastian is an older boy, as well as a single father who makes thinks that he is to old to have the daddy he has always wanted. Maddox is a younger daddy who has been burned before and has decided again relationships.

This was cute and I enjoyed reading it. It didn't grab me and not let go but I did want to find out if Sebastian and Maddox managed to work things out and find their happy ending.

Both men were nicely drawn and had a lot of good qualities, so I was rooting for them.

What struck me about this book was the unusual situation for Sebastian, the boy - he had a young daughter and he needed to put her first whilst still trying to find his own fulfilling relationship. I feel more could have been made of M

Absolutely Love!!!!

This is my favorite of the Dear Daddy books!! The boy and Daddy are just the sweetest. Sebastian, who has a little girl of his own, has a very busy day to day life and wants a Daddy to help him let it go for a little while. Maddox has been burned before and it's very hard to earn his trust. It seems like it's going to be impossible for these two men to have a relationships. This book is full of sweet Daddy/boy moments.

Maddox is a Daddy that’s been burned - Sebastian thinks he’s too old to be a boy (and that because he has a daughter he can’t be a boy.) Thankfully their friends and family know better and make sure they meet. The care and support these two show each other is beautiful and the chemistry is amazing. I understand from Rheland’s intro in the book that it’s her first Daddy book but I sincerely hope it’s not her last. Stellar book - you need to read it!

I loved, loved, loved Maddox and Sebastian!! Sebastian is raising his daughter. He has no time for relationships, but he wants a Daddy to take care of him and see to his needs. Maddox has been burned in the past. His best friend signs him up on the Cuffd app and makes him go out on the date with Sebastian. This was an amazing story! I couldn’t put it down; I was hooked from the first paragraph! I’m voluntarily leaving a review from an advanced copy that I received.

For as long as she can remember Rheland had her nose stuck in a book, getting lost in the world of someone else's creation (She still does). Her love for writing came from her love for reading. She could never have one without the other.

Writing was always a hobby and a cathartic experience for her. There are many stories lost to the never to be completed or pu
