Can an accidental Daddy love a boy for real?
Jensen Cartwright managed to get to forty-seven years old thinking he would never meet a man that wanted the sort of relationship he craved until Dashael literally fell into his arms.
Homeless, and convinced adulthood is some cruel joke forced on him to make him lonely, Dash is overawed by the sexy older man who seems to offer him everything he’s ever wanted including story time, bath time, and special play time.
One Cup of Daddy contains an overworked businessman who finds out that cuddling a sweet boy and keeping him safe might be the best thing he’s ever done, and a scared boy who discovers that finding a Daddy and holding on tight might just be the best recipe for love ever written.

It’s just so cute, this story. I reckon I was in the mood for light and fluffy and very cute because I found Dash so incredibly cute. That’s just the best way to describe this whole thing. See, Dash, who’s real name is Dashael, has had the worst time growing up, yanked away from his grandma, who he loved so much and was really the only person to show him any love or kindness, when he was a child, his father, who he’d never met, comes and takes him to a life of alcohol and abuse. Plagued with debilitating fears of just about everything, when Dash’s grandma dies and leaves him her bakery and home, he’s forced to sell within six months because people are always taking advantage of him and it was just too much to do on his own.
I did not understand how this woman manager got away with the ways she took advantage of him, I didn’t like that he didn’t get retribution for that… I hate when bad guys get away with being bad guys… His father as well, but… we’ll come back to that in a second.
Now, losing everything that’s when he meets Jensen… a very wealthy investor who finds Dash in the bakery he’s thinking of purchasing, hiding from him in a cupboard. Literally. It was the saddest thing, but thankfully, Jensen sees this tiny boy with his teddy, scared out of his mind and much too skinny and pale, so he takes him to the hospital and then home with him because other than the connection he feels immediately, he knew that Dash didn’t need to be on his own. He very obviously wasn’t doing a good job taking care of himself, so he stepped in.
Now, it takes Dash a bit to trust Jensen and he’s not used to anyone doing anything nice for him, especially for no reason. And it takes him a while to be comfortable, though he does love the little cottage and the safety that Jensen offers him.
I love that everything between these two happens so naturally. Jensen is very patient and he seems to adore Dash from the minute he sees him. He wants what’s best for him, which is the first thing that any good Daddy wants for his boy, but having never had that type of relationship before, he’s unsure how to go about everything….it’s okay though because they learn together. New to both of them, when invited to a little’s night at a club where Jensen’s sister and her wife/little and everything just kind of clicks into place for both of them. It’s what they needed, and Dash was seriously just the cutest little. If you haven’t caught on yet, it’s all just really cute!
There were a few things I didn’t care for, Dash’s dad being one. I thought a few things felt out of place and just unlikely to happen, but it was what the story needed to throw a wrench in things and create a problem, and again, we don’t get any real justice for the wrongdoing that Dash went through and that bugged me, but Dash didn’t seem to care, as long as he had Jensen.
I’d be interested in seeing more about these two, they were just so sweet and cute together, it was a nice change. Everything seemed so natural and perfectly timed, it was just a really cute read for me. Okay, I’m going to end this now so I’ll stop saying cute. If you like Daddy/boy relationships with little angst and a cute ending, I’d recommend this one!
