Foster child. Teenage whore. Now a veterinarian, MacKensie’s turned her life around, but the scars remain. She saves her affection for the animals who never judge or scorn her, but it’s time to get out, move on from her past in Iowa. So, she arranges a vacation exchange to job hunt in Seattle.
Although the house is lovely, one room is locked. Her years in foster care have given her two ‘gifts’: a neurosis about locked doors and the ability to open them. After she gets into the room, she’s appalled…and intrigued. Chains and manacles, whips and paddles, odd benches with straps…
When Alex returns home days early and finds MacKensie draped over the spanking bench in his locked dungeon, he’s furious. But her wariness arouses his protective nature and curiosity, so he strikes a deal to keep her close–she’ll act as his submissive in exchange for a place to stay and help finding a job.
He’d planned to use the veterinarian to deter an ex-girlfriend, not replace her, but with MacKensie’s compelling mixture of strength and vulnerability, the little sub slides right into his well-defended heart.
I finally got around to reading this one and as a stand alone book I did enjoy this one but I do LOVE when she does a series. This one was different because for the girl she associated spanking with someone who loves you because growing up in foster care only the kids who were loved got spanked. I didn’t understand that at first but Alex was absolutely amazing with her. He is just a great Dom!
“I wouldn’t do this if i didn’t care, but you mean everything to me, and if this is what you need, then this is what you’ll get. But we’re damned well going to work on changing this association between caring and spanking.”
Well lets face it Cherise Sinclair does an amazing job when she writes about her Dom’s they are the most perfect in every way, leaves us all wondering if there is such a man out there.. haha which is why I LOVE to read her books!
There is just such a connection between the two of them that is always so fun to read about. To think that someone can instantly feel something for another person and know that more will come from it and it will only get better as you go.
He does a great job introducing Mac into a bunch of new things. It is always so much fun reading Mrs. Sinclair’s books!
