Publisher's Summary

Learning how to accept her fiance's ways may mean a few trips over his knee on their way to the altar.
Cheyenne Sterling is walking on cloud nine. Her boyfriend of almost two years, Quinlan O'Connor, has finally proposed. Quinn is a local sheriff's deputy and a charter member of the local BDSM club, The Sting, where they enjoy friends, playrooms, and entertainment as often as they can. Cheyenne expects it all to be smooth sailing from here. Engagements, however, have a way of breeding mischief, and this one is no different.
Quinn is satisfied his life is moving forward. He was more than ready to take the plunge, but the road to future bliss can be long and bumpy. As a card-carrying dominant, his need to retain control is necessary but with his feisty woman, control may be more of a perception than a reality. Everything in their life now comes with a higher emotional price tag.
Will clandestine meetings, secret lifestyles, treasure rooms, new types of play, and one naughty submissive destroy all they have built between them and all they are beginning to grow in their new life? Is their relationship's foundation strong enough to take so many changes and challenges without crumbling? In all the preparations for a life together, are they ready?
Disclaimer: This book contains the spanking of adult women, elements of BDSM play, including anal play and mild age play, and erotic sexual scenes. If any of these offend you, please do not purchase.

Not what I was hoping for...

I requested this book because it was listed under contemporary romance. I started listening and could easily see it was not a contemporary romance. I was surprised when I checked and realized it was under Erotica at Audible. I have listened to a few books that have BDSM and I have to have strong characters that are well developed and a good story to go along with. This story did not grab my attention at all and the narration did not bring the story to life. There was not much emotion or feelings expressed through his narration.

I honestly did not care for the story and the characters at all but gave it a 3 stars because I seldom read anything in this genre and had no interest in torturing myself for over 8 hours. I have not read the first book in this series but not sure it would have helped.

This book is definitely not for me.

I am unable to give the book a positive review.

I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review. Unfortunately I am unable to give the book a very positive review. I finished the book, only because I felt obliged to listen to completion to give it a fair review.

AudioBook Boom rated the book as “contemporary romance” and Audible rated it as “erotic fiction.” This book was neither erotic nor romantic in my opinion! I was not offended by the book, I was bored! Both the plot and characterization of this book were very poorly done.

The hero and heroine were engaged at the beginning of the book, so there was no romantic courting between the couple. The heroine was very immature and bratty. The hero was constantly punishing her by spanking to correct this bratty and immature behaviour. This was basically the whole plot! The hero was supposed to be a Dominant and practicing a BDSM relationship with the heroine, his Sub. The BDSM in the book was all talk---no action, except the spanking. The hero and heroine were constantly saying how much they loved each other, but it never felt believable. The brief Daddy Dom medical scene was pretty ridiculous!

The character development was very incomplete. We learn that the heroine has a strong business. The hero is a firefighter and/or a deputy sherif. However there is no connection to these jobs. The relationships with the hero’s family appears to be strong, but again very superficially shown in the writing. In good fiction the characters become “real people.” To like a book, I usually want to find some likeable characters in it. Both the heroine and hero were unappealing characters. How could a supposedly strong Dominant man be interested in such a wimpy, bratty girl? The hero does not come across a strong Dominant man.

I read very eclectically, but I have recently been reading a lot of romance and erotic romance fiction. “The best romance novelists are writers who draw readers in with a beautiful love story and keep them interested with compelling details.“ This quote says what I want to find in a good romance. There are some very good writers from whom to choose. (Cherise Sinclair, Joey Hill, and Emma Holly, Georgette Heyer, Diana Gabaldon ---to name just a few.) I would encourage the author to study other contemporary romance writers.; there are lots of good ones!

The narrator was fine.
