Publisher's Summary

No one is supposed to know that college basketball star Steve is being physically abused by his father.

No one is supposed to know that he's living in a trailer park on the verge of being homeless.

No one is supposed to know that this tough guy is gay.

Coach James has always kept his private life private. Getting a job as a basketball coach for this university is supposed to be a new beginning.

Neither man expects to connect like they do.

Neither man expects to build a loving and supporting relationship like they do.

And neither man expects to fall in love like they do.

But there are secrets that are being held that could destroy this promising steamy affair, secrets that belong only to Silver Daddy.

Serious Editing Needed!!!!

The story and narration of this book is okay but the sound editors need to seriously listen to this book and correct editing mistakes. It’s riddled with errors. The narrator, as would be expected, tries a few different readings of the same line but the forgot to cut out the repeats. It’s simply really sloppy editing!!!

Narrator coughed . . COUGHED!

Awful narration and audio. Couldn't determine if the story was any good because he cleared his throat in chapter 1 - deal breaker!

A story with great potential

My first impression was the narrator sounded more like an old man rather than the image created of James.
The ending was abrupt and felt unfinished.

Rather melodramatic, but okay

This story had a soap opera-ish plot and made me roll my eyes every time a big secret was revealed (and there were several). I had some issues with the relationship - the big age difference + coach/student dynamic, lack of trust and communication, etc. But the story held my attention and kept me entertained as I did my chores - so as part of the Romance package, it was worth the listen.

The narration didn't work for me ... the narrator didn't match the story, he sounded too old (grandfatherly), Eeyore-ish and his "Silver Daddy's" voice was too gruff/Muppety. There was a particularly awkward patch at 14:10-14:50 with repeated lines and a throat clearing that was clearly not part of the story and should have been sound edited out. Also, the sex noises were over the top/campy and made me giggle sometimes. Initially I thought this would be a DNF for me, but upping the speed to 1.30x helped improve the narration so I could get into the story.

twinks and drunks and bears...,oh my!

titillating fantasy of male lust, romance rescue and a few moments of genuine love the way guys might dream of it. If you can see past the exaggerated voices an the stereotypes they perpetuate. it's ok to feed yur dreams some junkfood.

Mostly Enjoyable

What did you like best about Call Me Silver Daddy? What did you like least?

Overall story was good, but I wasn't crazy about some of the narration. Also, the narration needs a bit more editing. There are some spots at the beginning and another 1 or 2 later on where narration is repeated (like the narrator was trying to say it a different way) - this should be cleaned up, as it was distracting.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The characters seem to bounce between really trusting/caring about each other and doubting each other - several times throughout the course of the story - I think this could have been handled better.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

One of the main characters (Steve) vacillates between sounding gruff and whiny. This was annoying and I never felt like his voice really fit the character. And some of the narration just seemed a bit uneven - delivery was over the top at times and didn't feel natural to the story.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

More/better communication between the 2 main characters. Too often they seem to be getting comfortable with each other then one would discover something and fly off the handle without talking it out. Fine at first, but got tiring as it continued. Felt like an 'easy way out' to show unresolved conflict.

Any additional comments?

For the most part, I did enjoy the story, but part of me felt that narration took away from some of the enjoyment. This one may have been a better read than a listen for me.
