Audiobook Review: Making Rules by Susan Hawke, narrated by Michael Dean (Davey's Rules #4.5)


Note: The audiobook was provided by the author via Gay Romance Reviews Audio Team.

When I’d read the eBook edition of Making Rules by Susan Hawke, I’d admittedly gotten teary-eyed, but listening to it was a whole ‘nother matter. I already knew how Raphael and Samuel Robustelli’s story would end, yet I was affected all the same, moreso when I experienced it through the audiobook. Am I even surprised at this point, considering the combination of Hawke and the one and only Michael Dean as her narrator of choice has consistently left me impressed? I’m hoping this twosome continues with Hawke’s future projects, whatever they may be because why would you mess with a combination this fab?

Hawke’s series about Daddies and theitir boys has gotten better with each new release—well, okay, save for Rules for Santa since I felt that faltered a tad—and with the series coming to an end right after this particular book, it feels as Hawke’s truly saved the very best for last. That’s saying something considering I’ve liked one, loved most, and adored another one. This latest one? Well, I’m quite smitten with it! There’s more poignancy to this one, and you’ll understand why if you’re familiar with the series and Raph and Sammy as a couple in particular. Of course, there are humorous moments, as well as ones with lots of heat and heart to them. I laughed and I cried and I fell in love with these two characters as Dean brought them to life. We only got snippets of them in the past, and while their story is “only” told through several vignettes, they’re enough to show how much these two loved each other. Five-plus stars for Making Rules. ♥
