Publisher's Summary

Rule number 18: Daddy’s boy will always believe in his Santa daddy.

Homeless, alone, and now jobless, Cameron Evans is lost...until he’s found, after a prominent local attorney literally trips over him when the boy is passed out from dehydration.

Scott Hendrickson has two things in life: his job as an assistant district attorney and his son Davey. Other than that, he lives alone in a house that’s too big, too empty, and too lonely. 

It’s not just Cameron’s life that might change for the better when Scott takes him in. Scott can provide material things and security, but Cameron returns the favor by breathing fresh air into Scott’s stale life.

Two men who need each other and one magical holiday season. Could a little Christmas magic be all that’s needed to bring the biggest gift of all? Maybe, Cameron doesn’t need a sugar daddy because he already has a Santa daddy. 

This is the third book in a series about not-so-perfect daddies, adorable “boys”, and one sassy brat with an insane list of rules. 

Get ready for all the squishy holiday feels you’d want from a Susan Hawke book.

One of the best

This is one of my favorite Davey's Rules books. It's super sweet, cute, funny, heartwarming and so much love. It's like watching a Hallmark Christmas movie, with some kink.

Absolutely a must listen to, over and over. And of course Michael is excellent, if a tad to breathy during a few intimate scenes.

I couldn't get enough of this book. Whispersynced- I turn the pages with the audio. Michael Dean performing for me is always a treat. My last read has me in such a book hangover this was just the cure. Working my way through the series.

Sweet Boy Finds His Santa Daddy

I'd heard very good things about author Susan Hawke's "Davey's Rules" series, and because I heart Christmas-themed stories, I jumped into it with "Rules for Santa" (Book 3). This is a sweet age gap, hurt/comfort, slow burn romance between daddy Scott and his boy Cameron. It also features an interesting father-son dynamic between Scott and his actual son Davey, as the latter was unaware his father was bisexual and also had a daddy kink, that added a unique layer to the story.

Narrator Michael Pauley was another huge selling point in selecting this audiobook, and he delivered another terrific performance. He skillfully showcased his range in voicing the two main characters, conveying the youthful exuberance and innocence of Cameron and the maturity and gentleness of Scott, and the amusingly snarky Davey.

This was an enjoyable listen and I look forward to further exploring this series, particularly Davey's story in "Rules to Ignore" (Book 7).

a slow-burn romance for the holidays!

I wanted to read this book so bad. I tried to skip the second book because I knew I was not going to like it.unfortunately I had to go back and read it because their was important events that happened in that book that made this one that much better. This was a great holiday romance. I call it a slow burn because there were no hot and heavy scenes that were out of place. the author waited until the characters were in the correct place with not only their lives but how they felt about each other before sexy times happen. so good, my recommendation go on girl read that book!

love this!!!!

Rules for Santa is the third book in the Davey's Rules series by Susan Hawke. Cameron and Scott are absolutely perfect in this sweet and sexy love story. There is a great amount of humor, a little drama and enough romance to make my heart happy. I love this!

Michael Pauley narrates this story and does a fantastic job. Clear recording and voicework.

Got to Love Santa

There is a lot of humor to be found in this story. Poor Davey to see his father find a match as a daddy had to be so hard for the poor guy. I do love the way that Scott and Cameron just seem to fit each other.

Santa!

This book is one of my favorites in the series and I never get tired of read it and reread it all the time, so the audio version was an immediate click for me. The story about Davey's father, Scott meeting Cameron, who became his boy is cute, endearing, deeply emotional and sweet. The way Ms Hawke constructed her wonderful characters is a treat because while reading you can feel Cameron helplessness, Scott protectiveness and at the end, the deeply love they developed for each other. This amazing book needed an amazing reader and Mr Pauley was the perfect choice as he was able to capture all the little details that made the characters what they are and and brought them to life. Totally cliche but not less true. Loved it!!!

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Michael Pauley is one of the 8 narrators (so far), I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

cute and sweet

amazing story! Susan works her magic yet again!
Michael did a wonderful job on the audio especially in the scene where Cameron is strutting. Davey's father Scott, who admits to Davey that he is bisexual, stumbles (literally) across Cameron after he was fired. Scott then precedes to take care of Cameron until he finally claims him as his.

It’ll get you ready for Santa 😉

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 4.75 stars
🔥🔥🔥🔥 Heat Level: 4
🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧 Narration: 5

It’ll get you ready for Santa 😉 All the feels!

I’m loving this series and loved Davey’s dad! Such a feel-good story, I loved confident, strong Scott and sweet, somewhat innocent Cameron and loved their happily ever after!

While a little awkward for poor Davey, he is always there to add some flare and unique insight! I loved the polar opposites between Davey and His dad, Scott. I’m starting to really feel for Davey, I hope he gets his perfect Daddy soon!!

I loved the caring dynamic between Scott and Cameron and felt they were well matched and had great chemistry. It was fun seeing more of Scott and his background and Cameron’s story was a little heart-breaking. I felt the heat and the love between these two. A thoroughly enjoyable read!!

I’m loving all the characters in this series and all the workers at Daddy’s Lap. My heart is still broken over Raphael‘s death in the last book and Susan shows so much love to all the characters still recovering, grieving and healing from such a loss.

Thanks for reading!

My Favourite of the series

This was great! I adored the holiday feel of the story and the daddy/boy combo in this one really did it for me. Scott was so great with Cameron and the slow burn was worth the wait.

Santa Claus is Coming!

What a great Christmas read! Rules for Santa is sweet and sexy - a great addition to an already awesome series, and exactly what I want in a Christmas read. The daddy in this book has been introduced previously, but I was surprised to see Davey's REAL father get his own story. Scott is the ultimate daddy. He is confident, settled in life, and ready to take care of a boy of his own. He hasn't considered such a relationship until he literally trips onto the perfect boy for him. Cameron is homeless and desperate after being kicked out when he comes out to his family. Scott saves him from the streets, and discovers not only does he want to take care of Cameron, he wants a relationship with him as well. This book is low angst and lots of sweet cuddles, hot cocoa, and updates with familiar faces (and a few teases of what's to come). Narrated by Michael Pauley, it is guaranteed to be a great listen. Pauley does a great job at creating distinct voices for his characters without falling into charactures or stereotypes. I feel ready for Christmas now!

Santa Daddy!

This third book in Davey's Rules series by S. Hawke has to be my favourite and I love them all. Michael Pauley, who is one of my all time favourite narrators, does a brilliant job as always of bringing the guys to life!
This is a sweet holiday story and a perfect Daddy/Boy comfort story. Scott takes in a sweet server who happens to be homeless and he helps him get his life together, looking after him just like a proper Daddy should.
Highly recommended for all, especially lovers of Daddy/boy stories.

Once again micheal did an fantastic job bring this story to life with the emotion he put into it.
