Ava Sinclair-Daddy’s World

Ava thought that she was done with Daddy books, but she found that there were still some in her. Since I love her Daddy books, as well as anything else she writes, I am happy to see that she is sharing with us. Daddy’s World is a post apocalyptic, dystopian, DD/lg story. So much awesome in just one story.

So, here’s how our story goes. The Earth was hit by some asteroids, and it wiped out a lot of stuff. The majority of the people who remained went into New Bethel. New Bethel is an extremely patriachal society. Men have all the rights, and women have none. Women are severely restricted as to what they can do. I mean, it’s to the point where a woman can’t hug her own brother without her husband’s permission. It is illegal for that to happen. The women are all forced to be happy, submissive women, who only do whatever their husband wants them to. I’m sure that there are some women who are happy with that, but the one woman we see in that kind of relationship isn’t really happy. Her name is Felicia and is the twin sister of the hero of the story, Senator Roman Delaney.

In New Bethel, you have to be a homeowner in order to marry. That limits marriage to the upper classes and the ruling class, since it can be expensive to marry. A friend of Roman’s was trying to make it easier for the laboring class to own a home and marry, but he lost all his money and his home, which nullified his marriage. Roman, in his position of senator, didn’t think that was right and is more progressive. So he came up with a program called Paternas. Paternas is a way to bring rebel women from the Warrens and let men who might not otherwise have a chance to marry to marry. But first, those men become Daddies and give their future wives a chance at a childhood so that they can learn to act appropriately.

The Warrens is a dangerous place. It’s all ruins and there are no men, and no real adults. First all the men were taken away and disposed of, and then the adults, so there were a lot of girl children left around. These young women who have grown up in the Warrens are rebels. They don’t want to live in the patriarchal society of New Bethel. Roman wants to make sure those women have a chance, versus what his enemies want to do, which is give them a long walk out of a short airlock.

Kit is one of those rebels. In fact, she’s a rebel leader. But when Roman saw her file, he knew that she was the one. She has fire, intelligence, spunk, and energy. He wants someone who is going to be strong and stand up, not just be a thin, pallid, submissive woman who is going to pretend to be happy. He wants his wife to actually be happy, and he’s pretty sure that Kit and the Paternas project will do that.

I loved Kit. She doesn’t trust anyone at all, and isn’t willing to put down her walls. She is strong, very strong. She has had to be. I thought that she’s a fabulous character, and I’m hoping we get to see more of her. I liked Roman too. I think he went into the whole thing with his eyes as open as they could be, but he did underestimate Kit somewhat. Of course, I don’t think that was because he was blinded by his upbringing or anything, I think it was more that he just didn’t realize how incredibly strong and motivated that Kit would’ve had to be. I mean, she had to survive a whole lot of crap and then she led the resistance, so she had to be smart and clever and strong. There are a lot of layers going on in this story. There’s the nice surface layer, but once you get down, you get into conspiracies. There are several conspiracies though. There are bad ones and good ones and ones we don’t know a lot about. I’m really hoping for a lot more in this series so we can track what’s going to happen.

Blue-Morpho-Butterfly-Open-Wings

That first matron? She was such a bitch. I’m glad she got what was coming to her, and I wish it could’ve been even worse, because she deserved so much more.

And ugh. Felicia’s husband. What a fucking pig. Asshole. Nasty pig-fucker.

I really do want to see more of this verse to see if Roman’s plans go through. I want to find out who Jenny is. There are so many questions I need answered.

So, go check out Ava’s return to Daddy Doms. Happy reading!

Megan Michaels-The Dragon Warlords

Megan is making her first appearance here on IBtP with a trio of terrific tails. And before you say, oh Clara, you misspelled tails, trust me, I did it on purpose. The 3 books are all great with a wonderful storyline, but they also have a breakout star, the tails. OMFG, the tails.

So, these books take place on the planet Trexotera, which has dragons. Thing of those dragons as warplanes, but you know, living and breathing warplanes. When the Trexoterans go to war against other planets, they take their fire-breathing dragons and go. The warlords and Commanders also carry guns and swords. While they may fight with dragons and swords, the Trexoterans are advanced with all that scifi tech we all love. Trexotera is run by King Zorander Quinn and his Queen, Gossamer. They have 2 sons and 2 daughters and one adopted son. The sons are Drayce and Cloven, with Artemis being the adopted son. The daughters’ names are Rosary and Willow.

While the story takes place primarily on Trexotera, the planet Zelora is also important. That planet is ruled by Alastair Tempest, who has twin daughters, Satin and Thistle, and at least one son, Thunder. I’m pretty sure that there is at least one more, but I haven’t checked the first book.

So, with all that, let’s talk about the books, shall we?

The first book is The Dragon’s Secret, and it’s Satin and Drayce’s book. Satin’s quiet, shy, and retiring sister Thistle is supposed to go and marry Drayce, prince of Trexotera. Satin decides that she’s going to take Thistle’s spot and go marry Drayce. That’s because she has always wanted to be a dragon warlord and ride a dragon. Her father wouldn’t hear of it, so her only way to do it is to take her sister’s place. When she gets to Trexotera, Drayce meets her and punishes her. Then he marries her. And we get to learn about the awesomeness that is a tail. Tails and spanking, pure awesome.

OK, the way that this works is that when a dragon feels a person is worthy, they gift the person and they are then turned into a warlord. One of the things to prove that they are a warlord is that they get a tail. Yup. A very flexible and talented tail. The warlords use their tails when it comes to sex. Pretty much anywhere the tail can go, it does. And at the end of it, there is a little barb that pops out when the tail owning person comes. It locks into their partner for a few minutes. Then there are Commanders who are warlords who have a dragon patch, which is a section of skin that looks and feels like dragon skin. Drayce is a Commander, and Satin becomes one as well.

Then we have The Warlord’s Priestess. Thistle is now on Trexotera and she has a new Daddy. Artemis rescued her and he knew as soon as he saw her that she was the one for him. Thistle was supposed to be the shy, quiet one, but Artemis has found out that she has quite a bit of fire in her, once she finds out that she has certain magics and can help out the dragons and their warlords. Thistle, Satin, and their friend and fellow warlord, Wish, manage to help when it comes to a huge confrontation in the war that Zelora started. Again, lots of spanking and fun tail sex. I’m in serious lust with the tails. I really want one. I mean, yeah. Imagine all the fun you could have with it.

Finally, we have Cloven’s Only Wish. Cloven and Wish’s relationship has gotten deeper. He’s her Dom, she’s his baby girl. Wish is strong, stubborn, has some issues with her temper, and very independent. The war with Zelora has heated up and Alistair has threatened the royal women of Trexotera, which means that they are all being kept under lock and key and heavy guard, which is difficult for all the women, but especially Wish, who has worked really hard to be the warlord that she is. The fact that their men are going off to war without them is really hard on all the women, and not good things happen.

Yeah, I know, it sounds vaguely vague in places, doesn’t it? That’s because if I go too much into any one book, I spoil the next one. Oh well, that means that you have to go buy them and read them. I wouldn’t read them as a standalone. They are all interconnected and if you miss one, you are going to miss out not only on the overall storyline but also the full story on each of the couples. Overall, I like the series, a lot. There are a few places that I don’t like, but that’s pretty typical. For example, I don’t really like Cloven much in the second book, but Megan rehabbed him and I liked him in his book. Even though I liked him in his book, there were a couple of times that he made me mad. It may sound like I’m picking on Cloven, but that’s just because I read his book yesterday, so he’s fresh in my mind. I’m hoping that there is more to come, I mean, Rosary and Willow should have their books too, don’t you think?

dragon

OK, I just have to say that I hate Alistair. I mean, he’s a serious prick. He hates his daughters, obviously, and he’s a jealous little prick. I thought that he was going to do terrible things to Gossamer, even more terrible than having her kidnapped and thrown into his prison. I’m pretty sure he’s not altogether in between the ears, especially after he takes the dragons.

The big punishment scene in Priestess wasn’t my fave. It wasn’t that it was hot, because it was. I understand why it was done the way that it was done, and it makes sense in the book, but for me, it took away a sense of support that I thought that the women needed. Of course, that may just be me projecting how I would feel on the characters. Of course, that’s just how I feel about it, and you may like it. And that’s totally awesome. There are probably parts that I liked that you didn’t. It all works out in the end, right?

Alright, I think that I’ve said all that I want to say today. Megan’s books aren’t on KU, but they are priced reasonably. Go check them out. Happy reading!

Emily Tilton-The Oak Street Method: Heather

I wrote a blog post a couple of weeks past on one of Emily Tilton’s books and wrote about her particular style. Emily writes a very dystopian world with a very particular point of view. Many of the heroines in her books are 18-20 and have been raised in a world where New Modesty rules have kicked in and young women are taught to be very modest and to even think of sex is wrong. It puts a specific kind of shame and humiliation in place. The young women end up with a mix of innocence and naughtiness, one where they know what they want, but know that it’s not their place to give it to themselves. Emily uses a lot of clinical names for genitalia, which you generally don’t see in this genre, but it’s perfect for her books.

Anyway, she has a series with the Institute, which is where young women can go to be trained to be concubines in a dystopian timeline. In this world, the Institute has several different programs to turn out bed girls or concubines. The Institute has it down to a science, and I mean that in a literal way. They have studied sexuality, taught sexuality, created new programs, and can just about predict how the frog will jump. With that skill, they decided to start a new program, and placed it on Oak Street.

The goal of this program is to take young women who have gotten in trouble in one way or another, and then place them with Mommies and Daddies who will spank them, monitor them, and guide them. The entire point is to keep these girls on the boil, so to speak. Constantly horny, but without any way to satisfy it, and with that sense of submissive shame. Shame has such a loaded connotation in it, but it’s the word that Emily uses, and I think it’s the best word for it. You just have to read it and see for yourself.

Once the girls have reached a certain point, things start moving in a whole different way for them. The Oak Street Method: Heather is the 4th book in the series. Each book focuses on a new family, usually just one girl per family, but that isn’t a hard and fast rule. And while Heather is the heroine of her book, we see recurring characters from the past books and girls who will be in the next books.

Yeah, they are technically women, being over 18, but since the girls of Oak Street are purposely being treated as girls, and that’s the way that they act, I think it’s appropriate to call them that.

Anyhow, all of this to say that this is Heather’s story. It’s pretty short, so with all of what I wrote, I’m not telling you much about the story because I don’t want to ruin it.  I would personally read them all in order. I know that Heather is in KU, and I think the others are still there, but they are pretty inexpensive if they aren’t. I really love Emily and the way that she writes, I read her books as soon as they come out, if I can. Anyway, there’s no spoiler section today, so enjoy this lovely picture.

Jane Henry & Maisy Archer-Boston Doms Boxset

Jane Henry and Maisy Archer have gathered up 7 of their Boston Doms books and put them in one big boxset that you can grab and read all the yummy Dom-y goodness. There is also a short story with Lucas and Gretchen in it. The story originally was in Hero Undercover.

Now, I have to say, I love reading about things that happen in Boston. It’s about a 4 hour drive for me, so it kind of seems local, you know? And I like BDSM kind of things, with hot Domly guys and strong, submissive women. So you put the two things together, and hey, boy, you’ve got a set of books that I’m more than happy to read. And read them I do and did.

Now, all the Domly types are either related or very good friends that have been tight for years. The subs are generally pretty new to the Domly types, but not necessarily, and there are some sisters mixed in there.

Really, if you take away all the BDSM stuff (please don’t), these books are all about family and what it means. They are all a large family, whether there’s a blood tie or not. The guys are all that close, so their spouses and subs become that friendly too. There’s a lot of support in there, with everyone supporting everyone else, which is awesome.

Each of the books are standalones with different couples in each story. However, there is an overarching storyline that runs through the book, but if you don’t pick them up in order, you aren’t really going to be lost since that overall storyline isn’t woven incredibly heavily throughout the story. The books from 1-7 also run several years in time, from the first to the last. There are a couple of places that overlap a little bit, but mostly, they are a separate time frame.

When it comes to the Doms, we get Daddies, Doms, and sadists. Remember, sadists aren’t necessarily bad in BDSM. The subs also come in variety of flavors including little girls and masochists. There are also a variety of tropes, you know, best friend’s little sister, older man, younger woman, virgin, so on and so forth. That means that you should have no problem finding a Boston Dom book that you like.

Our couples, in order, are Heidi and Dom. Heidi moves into a new apartment in Boston and listens to Dom-the-Dom across the way who has a new woman at his house all the time. Except the yelling she hears isn’t always from a good orgasm, sometimes it’s because the woman is getting spanked.

Then we have Hillary and Matteo. Hillary is Heidi’s younger sister and Matt is Dom’s twin brother. Dom, Matt, and Slay rescued Hillary from Marauder, an abusive man, but Hillary is still trying to find someone to be her Dom. Eventually, Matt steps into the role, but nothing sexual, mostly because his brother has made it clear that he sees Hillary as a sister and she is off limits.

Tony and Tessa are our third couple. Tony is Matt and Dom’s cousin, and Tessa works in his restaurant. He’s not really a Domly type when the book ends, but Tessa knows for sure that she’s a sub.

Slay and Alice are our first DD/lg couple. Alice works as a bartender at The Club, which is the BDSM club that everyone belongs to. Slay works and plays there too. He’s set stuff up so that Alice doesn’t come back into the club. Alice is attracted to him but so frustrated. Meanwhile, she’s very busy trying to parent her son, Charlie.

Elena and Blake are next. Elena is Slay’s little sister, she’s in her mid-20s, but Slay doesn’t want to believe she’s a grown up now. Blake is older and owns The Club. He also recently lost his wife. She ran a blog for subs. Elena and Blake manage to start chatting through that blog when he announces his wife’s death. I loved this story, how they all fell in love with each other only over text and chat.

Donnie grew up in Southie. His cousin Mikey runs their neighborhood. When his friend Pedro tells him that Mikey has his little sister Grace, Donnie has to rush over to save her. He’s loved her for years. Grace has been waiting for him for all these years. Can she accept his darkness and desire to cause pain?

Nora and Diego look like a couple that would never work. She’s Tessa’s little sister and was kidnapped by a cartel head, and Diego saved her. He’s been working undercover to take down the cartel. When his business brings him across Nora’s business, she follows him, and he becomes her Daddy.

Gretchen is an investigative journalist and a friend of Elena’s. Lucas works for Slay in his security company. Gretchen had been put under his protection once before, a few years in the past, but when she needs protection again, Lucas is there, even if she wants to slap him.

So, that’s the Boston Doms in a nutshell. I love all of the couples. I don’t think that I have a favorite couple, really, because they are all great in their own ways. So, go check out the boxset and fall in love with them all.

There’s no spoilers today, but there is a picture of Boston. At least, the stock footage site says it’s Boston.

Ava Sinclair-Stern Daddy

Oh my ducklings, this book witnesses the end of an era. There will be no more Ava Sinclair Daddy books. This is very last one. And she’s chosen to go out with a good one. So, let’s get into Stern Daddy.

Lindsey has a relatively good job. The problem is that she has a bad habit of living beyond her means. She never really learned how to manage her money. When her father had money he would help her out, which meant that she never had to learn how to bail herself out. Now, she’s buried under her debts, close to losing her apartment, and having a hard time buying groceries. So, she’s decided to do something about that. She decided to put an ad out on Craig’s List looking for a sugar daddy. She can still look like she’s in her younger 20s and she can accentuate it if she dresses younger. She’s spent several weeks talking to Silas, a nice older man. Now, it’s time to go meet him.

Silas’ limo has come to pick her up, and Lindsey is a wee bit rude to the driver. Well, I say wee bit… He tries to warn her that Silas is an old fashioned kind of guy, but she just tells him to be quiet and that she’s sure his employer doesn’t want him gossiping. When she gets to the huge house, and meets an older man who she is told is Silas. So, are you seeing the set up here?

Yup, the “driver” was really Silas, and he’s not an older man, and oh yeah, since he owns the company she works at, he’s her boss. When he tells her that she’s not leaving because he’s going to teach her a lesson, she threatens to call the cops. He tells her that he knows her criminal background, so she’s blackmailed into staying.

So, here we are again. Silas was hot and cold and it’s hard on Lindsey. I can’t blame her for anything she does. Sometimes he’s a very good Daddy and is very caring, sometimes he is really kind of stand-offish. No wonder she’s so confused about how she feels and how he feels about her. He’s kind of prickish about that, and I wanted to dropkick him. But, no character is perfect and conflict makes the character and relationship grow and the story advance.

Before we go to spoilers, I want to share my fave section of this book. “An unwitting young woman blackmailed into captivity by a tall, handsome stranger who keeps her as a child? It sounds like the imaginings of some kinky romance novelist.” I laughed my ass off. I couldn’t explain what was so funny to my husband, but I laughed and laughed.

pexels-photo-165522

I legit love Lindsey and how she stands up for herself. She doesn’t let Silas pawn her off. She doesn’t let him buy her off. When he talks to her about coming back, she draws lines and holds him to the boundaries that she needs. That is so awesome. So, very awesome.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one today.

Kelly Dawson-Daddy Takes the Reins

I was lucky enough to read one of Kelly’s short stories in the Christmas anthology that I reviewed here. Daddy Takes the Reins is the first book in that series and introduces us to some of the characters in that story. So, when Kelly asked me to read and review her book, I was like oh yes, pretty please and thank you! It doesn’t hurt that they take place in my dream location of New Zealand.

This is a lovely little age play/Daddy Dom book. Bianca regresses to a Little state, but it is a relatively mild age play story, compared to some others that I’ve read and reviewed.

So, Bianca is a young woman who happens to have Tourette’s Syndrome. She has spent her life fighting against the stereotype that shows up around her disease and is always trying to prove herself. Her biggest cheerleader is her sister, Annie, who is also her best friend. The problem is that Annie is now losing the battle with cancer and won’t be around for much longer. As a side note, fuck cancer. Bianca’s dream is to be a jockey. She loves horses and just got a job working at the stables of a prestigious trainer. She was hired on as an apprentice jockey, which means that she rides horses around the track to exercise them and helps take care of the horses and stables. She doesn’t tell anyone about her Tourette’s at first but eventually tells her employer’s son, Clay, the stable foreman.

Clay is one of three brothers, the other two being Luke and Cody. They all either work at the stables or at the farm that is part of the family’s property. Clay is the stable foreman and he isn’t sure that the newest hire can hack the job, especially after he finds out that she has Tourette’s. However, when she assures him that most of her symptoms are well in the past, then he has no problem with her. In fact, he becomes impressed with her when an abused and neglected horse comes into the stable and she is the only person who can get near the horse.

The problem is that Bianca starts working very hard in between helping her sister and taking care of the horse, which causes her to have more problems with her illness. That’s when Clay decides that she needs a Daddy to take care of her and he is just the person to take on the job.

I really enjoyed this story. It’s a nice bit of life and joy that I really enjoyed reading. There are some rough spots and a couple of really sad spots where I cried. But, the ending more than made up for it, and I was glad to have read it. Also, I just have to say that it’s nice to see a positive portrayal of a person with disabilities in a romance novel and not as someone to be pitied or babied. It’s also nice to see a person with disabilities in a kinky situation. Representation, yo!

pexels-photo-533150

OMG, I about wanted to kill Clay at one point. When you read it, you will see why. I’ll bet you get really mad at him too. Luckily, he learns his lesson and is able to redeem himself. That saved me from having to yell at him, but it was a very close thing. I did really want to.

I, too, had a sibling die of cancer, which is why the fuck cancer bit, so I really, really felt for Bianca there. Losing a sibling, especially if you are very close, is a terrible and tragic thing.

OK, that’s all for this one today. I really enjoyed it. Go over to Amazon grab it. It’s $4.95 and on KU. Happy reading!

Ava Sinclair-Rugged Daddy

Ava Sinclair has once again brought us one of her big, bad, Alpha, loving, and caring Daddies. This Rugged Daddy is a mountain man who is in an isolated cabin up in the mountainy woods, complete with a bearskin rug.

Eva is on the run. She stole from her employer and is now trying to get as far away from him as possible. He creeps her out and she’s afraid of what will happen if he finds her. So, she decides that she will take to the woods to get away from him, even if it’s in the middle of winter. She’s pretty experienced as an outdoorswoman, so she should have no problem hiking out to another town a few towns away and then getting transportation out from there. It’s a great plan, right up until she falls down, hits her head, and hurts herself. She crawls into a cave and curls up into herself, shivering, cold, and disoriented. None of these things are good for survival in the middle of winter.

Zane has dedicated his life to the outdoors and protecting it. These days, he lives out in the back of beyond, with little to no human interaction. The rangers come check on him occasionally, but most of the time, he’s by himself. One day, when he’s out checking his trap lines, he sees a flash of color that shouldn’t be where it is in the middle of winter. When he goes to check it out, he finds Eva curled up in a cave. He carries her back to his cabin the woods (spoooooooky), and begins to nurse her back to health.

When she finally wakes up, Eva lies to Zane about her name, because she’s afraid. He hands her some old-fashioned drawers, complete with drawers instead of panties, because that’s all he has. He tells her what’s happening and gets her story, full of omissions and half-truths. When she tries to leave, after being told it’s not safe, Zane has to take her in hand and lay down the law to her.

While Daddy Dom stories and spanking kind of go hand in hand, this one tends to be somewhat lighter on the spanking and punishment than some other stories in this genre do. They do still happen, but Zane seems to fall more on nurturing than punishing, even though he will when she does unsafe things. I really enjoyed that dynamic. I like the wide variety of DD/lg/age play stories out there and how they may all be the same dynamic but each couple handles it differently. Pretty awesome, right? Zane also listens to Eva’s worries and they work together towards a solution instead of him just unilaterally laying down the law.

pexels-photo-772456

Zane’s lovely little cabin in the mountainy woods. Don’t you kinda want to be there? Imagine the fantastic view.

So, I love how Zane’s backstory and Eva’s backstory connect up and weave in and out of each other. They each have some kind of impact on each other in the past without knowing each other. That’s pretty awesome, right?

And I’m pretty sure that no one should ever underestimate the marvels of modern plumbing and coffee shops on every corner. Around here, they are all Dunkin’ Donuts, because New England runs on Dunkin’, so that’s what I imagine they see when they want to go out for coffee.

OK, that’s enough for this one. Ava has kindly gifted us with a brand new story coming out on Saturday. This one is an RH. I’ll have that one on my blog too. I’m very excited.
