Ride hard. Love harder. Celebrate joyfully.

Rooster’s known he was a caretaker his whole life, but finding a boy who needed the same things he wanted to give had been… difficult.

Until sweet Emmett Moore falls back into his life.

Even though he’d practically grown up in the Moore house as Emmett’s brother’s best friend, it was like Rooster had never actually known the quiet y

i need to read more age-play romances after this. i enjoyed this but i was shookt as well. a good time overall.
This was sweet but tbh I expected more.

I knew this was only a novella going in so I had that little chat with myself about holding the undeniable fact of page count limitations against it but alas - it also didn't help that the release was pushed back a couple of weeks without even a word about it. I'm a needy reader, what can I say.

Now, cards on the table, this was my first Daddy/Little story, and while I was aware that Age Regression was a thing my line is at ABDL, and sice this story definite

JOYFUL was a really tender Christmas novella in the LEATHER & CHROME series. While age play isn't my thing at all, I did love the sweet and gentle way Emmett and Rooster's relationship developed. Rooster is a natural protector and mother hen and when he runs into his old friend's younger brother he can't deny how attractive he finds the sweet and innocent Emmett. They make a great couple together and I also enjoyed seeing the rest of the Devil's Hands motorcycle club. I can't wait for the next b ...more

3.75 stars. I enjoyed it, I really did. Even though it was a novella, which I usually avoid because they’re too rushed and Insta-love. But I loved the first 2 books in this series so had to read it. D/L daddy kink isn’t my fave to read, but Kiki has a knack for making hot, really kinky sexy times incredibly loving as well. Kinda reminds me a bit of Roe Horvat. Anyway, I enjoyed the fact there were “real” characters, like how Emmett was a bit chunky. Not enough real sized characters, so say I. Wh ...more

This was so cute! This novella was just adorable and I honestly loved it.

I loved Rooster and I Emmett together. Emmett was so freaking adorable. He and Rooster complemented each other so perfectly and this novella just gave me all the feels .

This book made me love Viper even more. I already had a crush on her from previous books but I'm in love with her now. I can be her girlfriend jeje.

I know the book that comes next is Ken's and Houston's and I honestly can’t wait! I want it to come
I really enjoyed this novella even though I'm not a fan of Age play romance but this one didn't have Diaper Play so it worked for me. Emmett was the sweetest and Rooster was his perfect match.

Side note : I wish they had used a different cover  model bc I'm assuming it's suppose to be Emmett and one of the things I  loved about him was the fact that he was curvy.

This was such a cute, sweet holiday novella set in the Leather and Chrome 'verse - and I LOVE this series from Kiki!

Emmett was just the sweetest ever, I adored him. And I love a brother's best friend pairing, always.

My one caveat that kept it from being 5 stars was due to the novella length of the story, I felt like several things were kinda glossed over and summarized as having happened from one chapter to the next, and it's think I would have rather read about than be told it happened. (This

A Joyfully Jay review.

3.5 stars

Joyful is book 2.5 in Kiki Clark’s Leather and Chrome series. It is a novella-length, holiday story that fits within the larger series and features characters that we have met in past books. Rooster is a club member and Emmett is a client of Ollie’s from Temptation and he appears briefly in that story. This story doesn’t really deal as much with the club on a larger level as the full-length books and could be read as a standalone if you’re ok without knowing all t

This was a perfectly sweet little addition to Kiki’s Leather and Chrome series. We get to see our favorite characters from the previous books and a new dynamic to the Daddy kink between Emmet and Rooster. If you are turned off by age play, it really is mild and most of it is hinted at. It’s really just a sweet and sexy little love story. I’m just bummed the only on page “first” we got to see was their first I love you. The other firsts were off page. But that’s a personal preference for me in th ...more

I don't enjoy this series quite as much as the Kincaid Pack, but it is pleasant. This is a novella featuring Daddy/little dynamics (not my fave, but this was cute.) I think we needed a little more of how they knew each other in the past, and maybe showing some of the more key moments in their growing relationship. Some novellas are the right length, but I felt like this one needed a bit more for me to be invested. ...more

Emmett and Rooster's romance was soft and sweet and absolutely adorable!

It took all of two seconds for me to fall head-over-heels in love with Emmett, and once I saw how well-matched Rooster was for him, I swooned even harder. There's nothing quite like seeing a Daddy meet his dream boy, and oh my god was Emmett the cutest, sweetest little on the planet. Emmie's age wasn't ever discussed in the story, but if I had to guess I'd say he's around 3-4 years old--too old for diapers and pacifiers, bu

3/5 stars.

“We’re rock fucking solid. Nothing will change how we feel about each other or how adorable I find you. Or how as soon as I think you won’t freak out, I’m going to ask you to move in with me.”

This was a sweet, instalovey brother’s best friend Daddy/little romance I didn’t know I was looking for. Clark once again writes a wonderful novella, however I struggled with the amount of fade-to-black scenes and skipped over moments to keep this a novella length story.

I really was looking forward to Emmett & Rooster's book. Unfortunately, I have started liking this series less and less. I was completely in love with book 1 (tank & CJ) but somehow they are starting to be in my miss/ dislike category. I love Kiki Clark books and I'm super down with the daddy-themed stories. This one had a lot more age-play/ little time than the rest so far, which I am ok with as long as it is balanced but I am ultimately looking for a steamy romance which this is NOT AT ALL. No ...more

I’m not normally a fan of MC stories, but I LOVE the group in the Leather and Chrome series. Emmett and Rooster just put a smile on my face. The “found you again” story between these two just makes you believe in “meant to be”. Emmett trying to build his self-confidence and Rooster just loving him just the way he is is what relationships should strive to be. Rooster’s protectiveness of Emmett in regards to his family was fantastic. The way the author portrays the fact that Blood is not always th ...more

EMMETT BABY BOY *squeeze hug* Rooster and Em are just everything you could want in a more sweet, loving, and caring Daddy/boy dynamic.

“He’s a little,” Rooster said bluntly, crossing his arms over his chest. He tried not to look smug as Viper gaped at him. “Which means my caretaking, daddy ass might just be the perfect man for the job.” - My soul left my body.

The thing that had me falling the most for this couple though was when Rooster defended Em dealing with Em's shitty ass family. King beha

“It felt… inevitable. Comfortable. Like coming home after a long, boring business trip and finally feeling like you can take a deep breath.”

These guys..oh my heart!!! The men (and women!) of the MC just have huge hearts of gold! I am not surprised that Rooster is such a caretaker! His care of Emmett is so sweet and loving. Emmett definitely deserves it, especially with the shallowness of his thoughtless blood family. So glad to see him finally find his place with Rooster, Viper, CJ and Ollie. Em

Joyful is a wonderful holiday addition to the Leather & Chrome series. Emmett and Rooster’s story is a super sweet and perfectly low angst Christmas novella. I loved the balance between Emmett’s little moments and the steamy adult moments, the author was able to transition between the two seamlessly. I loved the other books in this series, so it was also great to catch up a bit with Ollie & Six and CJ & Tank. The side characters are always excellent in the Leather & Chrome books which helps keep ...more

A sweet, shy boy who was always overlooked, Emmet was finally blossoming when he moved in with Roni.
Along with Roni comes the MC and thus comes back into Emmets life, Gray.

Rooster was looking for a boy of his own and little did he know that Emmet was going to suit to him perfectly.
As they reconnect, it’s like they were meant to be and Rooster becomes the support that Emmie always needed.

A sweet, low angst read that tells us a lot about the couples relationship instead of showing it to us as it i

Super sweet, super steamy, Daddy/boy holiday romance with age play (no ABDL)

If you're after an adorable story where an overlooked sweetheart of an MC is shown his worth by a strong Daddy, look no further.

Joyful is part of the Leather & Chrome series, so you'll also get cameos from some previous MC's in the series. You could read it as a standalone, as long as you're okay with established couples appearing without knowing their backstory.

This was an adorable holiday novella. Novellas can be hit or miss for me with the speed things proress, but with the history and backstory these two have with each other this feels like a complete story for them. Emmett and Rooster are so sweet together and you can feel the love between them. Rooster makes a perfect daddy for little Emmie. I haven't read any of the other Leather and Chrome books before, but this encourages me to check them out because I'm now invested in all thes

Emmett and Rooster Meet again

This was a sweet Daddy boy book. A fun reading how Rooster protected Emmett even against his own family.
A secret little to almost everyone that knows him except his roommate who is in a motorcycle club and watches out for him. When she takes him to the clubhouse to decorate cookies Emmett see Rooster again. Rooster was Emmetts older brothers best friend in high school. Rooster sees Emmett dimples and can't resist his dimples. Being Emmett Daddy helps him grow.

Ok so yes I did get the novella and read it in just over an hours time and yes I do wish it had been three times longer! I have loved this series so far! Little Emmett and daddy Roosters story is full of Christmas joy and sweetness that is both adorable and sexy! There is a smidge of age play without abdl! No angst, cameos of our favorite guys from the previous books it’s just the perfect easy read for your holiday vacation!!

Love this book! Sweet Emmett’s little side gets a visitor from his past in one of the guys in the club! Rooster and Emmett’s story is so sweet I think I got a cavity! A total deviation from the sweet exhibitionist sub (CJ) and the bratty sexy sub (Ollie), Little Emmie is a true sweet boy with a jiggly, thick body who is treasured beyond measure by his protective and attentive Daddy. Viper may just lose another roommate!

I freaking loved Emmett and Rooster! Rooster was Emmett’s brothers friend. Emmett is quiet, shy and afraid to let his little side out. Rooster is a Daddy that only wants to care for Emmett! Overall, a fantastic read. The story was well written and flowed nicely, highly recommend. I’m voluntarily reviewing from an advanced copy that I received. My reviews are solely based on my thoughts and opinions.

Give Emmett a full book

He deserves it. Emmett was the sweetest boy with a horrible family who deserves a full back story, heck so does Rooster. I mean why does he live in a house? How, where, and with whom did he grow up outside of being friends with Erik?

I wanted more Daddy time and sexytimes. Don't get me wrong, this was sweet as heck, but does not have the same heat as the others. It is entirely appropriate to show being a little and have lots of heat.

My first time me reading this author

I really fell in love with the characters in this book. I love when they all become the be big sweet family who care for each other and let everyone just be themselves. The sweetness between these two men was so amazing to read. Refreshing too. I enjoyed the very low angst after a sad and stressful holiday season. I will definitely go back and read the rest of this authors work.
