I seriously wish there was a 10 star option - LOVED this book!! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVED this book!!!!! I was terrified it would be incestuous and it was not AT ALL! LOVED this book!! :)
I absolutely loved this story. It was long, it has a wonderful story line and the end.... oh my.
I definitely recommend this for everyone to read. It´s a joy to see the transformation but I do wish that there would a second part to this story.
Keeping my fingers crossed!
I LOVED this story. Everything about it is great. Worth the money you spend.
What a fabulous story of a girl maturing under the loving guidance of 2 doms..one she falls in love with, and I can understand why!! I have read it 3 times already and enjoy it every time. I hope Breanna considers doing a sequel to this as I would definitely buy straight away.
Enjoyed the dedication and patience in their romance.
Reviewer: Cecily St Pepper
A long good read about a young imature girl who get to grow up in a loving and nurturing home. More about the relationship between Jace and Celes and Mark and Gayle. And a happy ending after working through some troublesome times.
Very good long book. Wow, what a guardian to have. She is very lucky girl have someone like that.
Excellent spanking/love story
Celeste is raging teenage hormones with a bad temper thrown in for good measure. As we follow along from her 18th birthday to her 20th birthday, we see a sub being born & love blossoming. There is a long wait for the hot sex, but well worth it. One very unusual punishment was ... okay no spoilers, you will have to read it for yourself.
"""This story is going on my favorites list! Loved it! I love how this author is able to make a family from the most unlikely characters. Celeste, Jace and Mark make their own family complete with discipline and love. I didn't find this to be your typical Guardian/ward spanking story either. Even though this story is nice and long, I was still so sorry to see it end. Lots of spankings in this one!"""
Wow! When I think I've read every plot imaginable, whammo, another one comes along. This was great from beginning to the end. Great characters, PLENTY of spanking, and loooong. Loved it!
"""I like Breanna's writing and wanted to like this one more but I just couldn't get into it. It felt tedious and repetitive and some of the characters really felt flat, even Jace. I understand that she was writing about her own experiences and crafted that into this novel and maybe that's what the problem was - the first person narrative felt strange too, everything describe as I did this, then that, then I felt like this...etc just got boring quickly. """
I enjoyed this story. It's longer than most on this site and I thoroughly enjoyed spending the extra time with these characters.
Celeste is in trouble again and the judge is out of patience. He strips her legal rights as an adult until she is 21 and gives her the choice of jail or become the ward of her Godfather, Jace. The court doesn't realize it but she has actually been placed in the custody of her Godfather's son, who is only 13 years older than her. After she scares off her first tutor and gets her first spanking from Jace, she meets Mark, the drummer from Jace's band. Mark happened to be in the right place at the right time to see Celeste struggling with math problems. As a substitute teacher at the local high school, it only took him minutes to get her to understand the concept and the next thing he know he was offered the full time position as her tutor. Celeste loves him; he has become her big brother, teacher, friend and much to her dismay disciplinarian as well. A romance is blooming between Jace and Celeste but Jace lives a lifestyle that he doesn't think Celeste is ready for
This was my first book by this author and i am hooked.her style is fun, refreshing, moves well and never gets boring. You can tell the author loves what she does by how she develops her characters and brings things together.i liked the mystery of Jace,too...he was focused, disciplined and thought only of his girl.i want him!
Breanna Hayse is definitly one of my most favorite authors and is on my must buy list for any of her books and this story just shows why. The characters are great and you see how their relationship develops slowly but surely with plenty of spanking to go around. Loved this story.
Wonderful read. I loved every word of it. I had to force myself to put it down and go to bed. I will definately be reading more from this author.
I like this one, taking a young lady who has no concept of self-discipline, or self-worth and teaching her that she is a valuable human being totally melted my heart. It also made me dang thankful that I will never be introduced to her Sir! Slightly harsh punishment, but with amazing results, and a relationship that really shines through in the writing. I can't wait for her next one!
Wow!!! Breanna Hayse wrote a story about a young nineteen year old (Celest) being placed with her god father (a very young friend of her parents). The story has no sex scenes as he actually re-raises her. He makes her catch up on school as well as teaching her about responsibility and relationships, and trust. Of course it turns romantic----it wouldn't be a Breanna Hayse book without some romance!
Loved, loved, loved! Was a wonderful long story and the characters were great. Celeste was just the right amount of bratty without becoming obnoxiously so and I would love how caring and loving Jace and Mark are. Great book all together looking forward to reading some more from this author!
Poor Celeste! She's just too young for her own good. I liked her character development as the story got more in depth but we find out almost nothing about Jace, other than he's filthy rich and a musician. We never get to see his character 'fall in love' with Celeste. I didn't like Mark watching all the spankings -too creepy.
Breanna Hayse is one of my favorite authors! This book is amazing. I have no complaints. The characters are wonderful, great spanking, and perfect dialogue!
I absolutely loved this story! The plot and the characters were both entertaining and I found myself literally counting how many pages were left because I didn't want it to end. It would make a great series, I hope the author considers it. The best part of the story is the relationship between Celeste, Jace and Mark.
Well written. great story line. Would have liked some more of his side.
Although the d/s scene is not my thing,this is a wonderful long story. The plot and the characters are relatable and fully developed. I also really liked the presence of other characters: Mark, Gayle and friends. I would love to read a sequel. It is a excellent read.
This book is a winner. It was thorough. Hayse took the time to fill in all the spaces for the reader to understood the progression of Celeste. I got a clearer idea of how the process of submission is achieved. With the length of the story a depth was achieved that enabled me to feel as though I entered their lives. I felt I was part of the story. Well done. This is one to reread often.
I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy this book, but I really liked it! I'm not usually much of a fan of the severe discipline that this one had in it, but the storyline was so good that I read it through from beginning to end. Pretty erotic and fun, with a good story!
I really liked the spanking scenes throughout the novel as they were explicit and help create a wonderful fantasy in your mind. My main concern was that there were so few spanking scenes in 24 chapters with so much fill otherwise as there was too much info about the daily life.
I loved this book it was very long and the relationships developed very nicely.
Amazing piece of work, intelligent, well written with full characters and realistic scenes. A definite must read for anyone who wonders about the dynamics of this lifestyle.
Action romance a brat what more could you ask for in a story
This is the third story I've read by this author, and I've loved them all.
In this one, I really enjoyed the way the relationship between the two main characters built slowly over time and changed from that of Guardian/ward to Dom/sub, without being too BDSM for my personal tastes..
I also really enjoyed the introduction of other characters into the relationship; the tutor, friends etc.
Good story that starts off more in the parent/child type role but turns into a great domestic discipline romance.
Loved this book!
Wow, this was my first Breanna Hayse book and I was flabbergasted. Amazing characters, story line and plot. It felt so sweet and real to me. Getting ready to begin her other ones!
What a wonderful look into a world of loving Doms. Ms. Hayse has created wonderful characters , bringing them alive with deep feelings and emotional struggles. The ultimate foundation being love. Very enjoyable!
First, I must state that this was absolutely the best book I'v read about this lifestyle in a long time. The fact that is was based on the authors real training (and I am assuming some of her history) made it even more enjoyable and realistic. That being said, I often wonder why people like this last reviewer bother to buy stories like this in the first place. If you want fact, then stay away from fiction! Many women involved in the D&S lifestyle (my wife included) respond to this reinforcement and guidance, and to makes comments like this last one was not only judgmental, but also somewhat insulting to those who have thrived and bloomed in this environment. Therapy does not heal everything, nor do the drugs the doctors give. I'm sure I speak for all of us who love our lifestyle and the honest stories about it when I say be careful when conclusions are made... they are often wrong and only cause hurt to good people who have greatly benefited from alternative lifestyles.
Reviewer: lani girl
This book was OK, definitely not what I was expecting from all the 5 star reviews. The characters were shallow and boring, the plot not as developed and it felt contrived and unrealistic. What judge would send an 18 year old girl to a stranger when he knows (as we find out at the end) about his secret life as a DOM? Jace and Mark treated Celeste like a child even though she was 18-21 through out the story. It also really bothered me that instead of helping her deal with her issues, they just punished her for natural responses to them. She needed therapy to deal with some serious emotional scaring and previous abuse. And her punishments were always overly severe and felt unfeeling, especially as the book progressed. I liked Gayle but felt that her and Mark's relationship was flip-flopping between loving and abusive. And it was very unrealistic to me that Mark and Jace were OK with each other punishing both their ladies. That was above and beyond. I was looking forward to reading one of Hayse's books as she has high reviews on all her novels, but will not buy any others as this was a huge let down.
Jace takes over the guardianship of troubled Celeste, and turns her life around. Very well written, with some great supporting characters. A complete story by itself, but it would be possible to have a sequel, to learn about their life together as they mature in their relationship.
The best ever! Loved every word, loved every characters and loved every spanking!
Miss Breanna's best EVER! This is one you want to read over and over again. PLUS it's long enough to really get involved. Looooooove it!
The best ever! Couldn;t stop once I started and can't wait to check out this authors other novels. Thanks!
Don't pick it up if you don't have time to put it down- this is an afternoon sit downer! It caught me from the start and I couldn't stop until it was done. I want a sequel! I mean, if this is just the beginning...WOW!
I absolutely Loved this!! This was my 1st ever order from blushing books and it has definitely made me want to come back for more!! Well done Loved it!! x
Beyond WOW! Ms Hayse had surely outdone herself this time and raised the bar for all other spanking fiction and novel lengths. There was nothing missing and gave me everything I could have wanted...
Awesome Book! Awesome Characters! Awesome Length! Can't wait to read it again!
A truly incredible story with realistic characters. I concur with the other reviewers that the length was not only something that made me feel like I was reading a book instead of a short story, but gave me ample time to develop a true affinity for the characters as well. The fact that this book was based on the real life training of the author as a submissive, made me want to know and understand the characters better. Ms. Hayes has definitely become the top pick of all my reading lists.
OMG, I never thought Breanna could outdo herself and, sure enough, she did. I agree with all the reviews that it's about time we get a real, full length novel that if filled with quality, and majorly yummy, stuff. Moreso, this story is based on Breanna's real training! What a lucky girl (at least, when she isn't is BIG trouble)! I would love to see a book written by both her and her husband. It's nice to see the Real Deal and not just pure fantasy.
This is one of my favorites by Breanna Hayse to say the least and it is a full length novel with awsome characters that really grow as the story moves along. The punishment scenes are great and never over the top and Jace and Celeste have great chemistry together.
A wonderful long story that really delivers. Great punishment, great plot, Great characters. The length is unbelievable. You get so caught up in the story. It is a excellent read.
Finally! A full length novel that I could sink my teeth in. The characters were well formed, the plot awesome and the growth and training that happened with Celeste discovering herself made me want to be in her place. Bravo, Breanna!
I loved this story! It had a great plot and the relationship between Celeste and Jace was amazing, also can't forget Mark he was so sweet. I loved the length we really get a chance to connect with all of the characters. I would love to read more.
A beautifully written poignant examination of the characteristics in the dominant/submissive relationship comes together in this delightful tale. All the elements of great fiction are here. A coming of age story of a young girl and her journey into the adult world with a man who truly cares for her.
So good!! I loves the characters. They were relatable and fully developed. I couldn't put it down.
This is a wonderful story. I absolutely loved the length and the plot. The characters were so deep and they had great chemistry. I would love to see another book with Jace and Celeste and Mark and Gayle. Great job!!
A truly wonderful book. Although the d/s scene is not my thing, I loved the loving nurturing of a lost little girl/woman. Also, plenty of wonderful spanking! I would give this a ten if I could.
This is Brees best story yet. It is a fabulous story about a young woman and her journey-not just growing up but her journey growing into a submissive. Plus, it is just plain ole hot! Oh and bonus, its a full length novel. Love that!
