Treasure for all
Abby,but I can't think of one charecter that didn't add something positive to this great introduction to something that may not be mainstream now...but why not?
She added the extra sparkle of quiet laughter or chagrin at oneself that makes the punch that much more heartfelt.
Never have I come across a book which subtly educates the reader,or listener, by submursing them into the daily life of something not so well understood. By walking a mile in their shoes,both the male and the female perception, I did laugh,cry,worry and fuss over what's to come!
A beautifully written story that shows in every aspect in everyday what a devoted couple,following these rather sometimes difficult steps, may strengthen a marriage from day 1 to 50 years...
No, from Maggie Ryan. Maybe for Sierra Kline if she doesn't have to do male voices.
It wasn't erotica. It was more about a man being in charge, a woman always needing to reflect and/or deal with guilt.
The anal scene with Sam was about punishment and humiliation. I should have read all the Amazon reviews.
The punishment and discipline descriptions at the beginning were more how I expected to have spankings described for a child. Maybe this is true submission. If so I like my fake BDSM and fake alpha males that are more typical today.
The male voice was just not good for me, seemed so condescending.
Not a romance, not a love story. More like DOMESTIC DISCIPLINE. I suppose my search for romances with alpha males let me jump too quick to buy this book.
Wow – I will never miss another book club meeting. This story is foremost a romance, but the characters are deeply into the D/d lifestyle. For people who are new to the genre or are curious about the lifestyle, this is a great place to start. The book’s beginning is a very clever device to introduce the reader to characters and inclusion of spanking as part of a loving relationship. Entwined in the story are many hot sex and punishment scenes.
Sierra Kline provides another excellent performance as she brings to the characters to life. No one provides a better erotic performance than she does.
I subtracted a star for the rather direct and slow moving plot. After the captivating beginning, the story followed a rather tried and true plotline. Yes, it is rather ridiculous of me to suggest that you would buy this story for the plot. However, my personal preference is for a bit more action/adventure.
I have tears in my eyes as I finished listening to this marvelous sexy love story! I have read most all of Maggie Ryan's books, and I believe this is one of the very BEST! The descriptions in the sex scenes are very explicit and fascinating! I highly recommend this book to anyone who appreciates a good sexy love story!
