Zachary Cunningham moved his family to Corbin's Bend when everything in their life seemed out of control. In a DD relationship with his wife Erin, he thought things had leveled out now that they lived in a community where everyone watched out for one another and discipline was the norm. Surely his family life could be more settled now.

Erin had never made friends easily and in Corbin's Bend she found it doubly as hard. A little too hard on herself, she ignored her mentor and any friendliness from neighbors; so afraid of making a mistake that she didn't try. Until her husband insisted. Having convinced herself she was doing what he wanted, she made friends with a few ladies who liked to push the envelope a little. From bowling to a strip club to smoking a little weed, her life was definitely a lot more fun, even if she was hiding her activities from Zach.

When her husband and the board of Corbin's Bend discovered their indiscretions, Erin and her friends found out what public discipline really meant. When the discipline led to a larger sense of security and more friendships than she could have imagined, Erin began to understand that following Zachary's lead truly was the way.

About Corbin's Bend:

Welcome to Corbin's Bend, the first equity-cooperative housing development just for spankofiles. Thirty thousand acres in the mountains above Denver sits your dream come true. With 1000 home sites, several restaurants, a club house, theater, pool, and many other amenities, you will find yourself at home.

Corbin's Bend is the setting for a group of spanking romance novellas set in, where else? Corbin's Bend, Colorado. A fictitious housing cooperative, Corbin's Bend is unique in that everyone living there is into spanking, whether that be erotically or through domestic discipline. Just imagine, a place where nobody has to hide their particular spanking lifestyle.

While reading any series in order is nice, Corbin's Bend books can be read as stand-alones as well.

Chapter One

“Are those earrings part of your uniform, Avery?” Zach asked, peering at his daughter in the rear mirror as they drove home at the end of the school day.

“They’re just tiny, Daddy.”

“That’s not the question I asked you.”

“No, Daddy, but I hate this uniform. There’s not a pretty thing on it. It’s so� dark blue.”

“It’s a uniform, Avvy, not a fashion statement. Rules are rules and they apply to you, the same as everybody else. I don’t think Momma would have let you wear them.”

“She didn’t,” Jordan piped in. “She hid them in her pocket and then put them�”

“I hate you, Jordan!” Avvy cut Jordan off.

“Hey!” Zach called out as he pulled the car into the driveway. “Both of you be quiet this minute. Avery? That was very naughty of you to break the school uniform rule and to sneak things past your Momma, we’ll talk about that later.”

Jordan gave her sister a smug smile.

“Jordan, you can lose that look, too. What Avery did was none of your business and gloating because someone else is going to get into trouble may just get you in trouble as well.”

“That’s so not fair. Bimbo,” she mouthed behind her hand.

Zach shook his head. Jordan had to have the last word. “Change that may get in trouble to a will get in trouble.”

“This isn’t fair, Daddy,” Avery whined. “You only found out because you’re a teacher at the school. No one else has to take their parents with them every day.”

“Diddems. You’re such a baby sometimes and you’re supposed to be the oldest,” Jordan said. “I love that you teach at our school, Daddy.”

“I do, too, but you’re still in trouble, Jordan.”

Finally deciding to cut her losses, Jordan jumped out of the car and slammed the door, letting the final bang satisfy her need for power.

Zach locked the car and lowered the garage door. He smiled to himself. Little hiccups like that little argument were about as bad as it got these days. A far cry from the way it was before they moved to Corbin’s Bend. That had been a nightmare. He’d worked all day in a school where it was hard to decide what was worse about the students: their inappropriate dress, their filthy mouths or their total lack of respect for their free education. There was the odd little treasure that made it all worthwhile, but mostly, it had depressed him. Home hadn’t been any better. Luckily they’d moved to this place and it saved them. They had a lovely home in an ordered neighborhood and most of all, the one thing he wanted for his family, peace.

***

Erin was pleased to see her girls as they flounced into the house obviously carrying with them some argument that had started in the car. She envied their childish self-centered personas. As the mother, she held her shit together so to speak, to think of the greater good of the family. She kept a clean house, well mostly. She could throw together a decent meal.

“Mom! Are you even listening?” Avery whined.

“Of course I am,” Erin said, touching her daughter’s cheek softly. “If you took the risk of sneaking your earrings to school when you knew it was against the rules then you have to accept the consequences.”

“If you wrote a letter and told them I needed to wear them then they’d give them back.”

“You are such a dummy, Avvy,” Jordan said. “Have you forgotten that Dad works at that school? He has lunch with your teacher!”

“Mom! Tell her to mind her own business!”

“Well, he does!”

“Shut up!”

“You shut up!”

Avery closed her eyes and took a big breath but when she opened them the argument about nothing really was still continuing. “That’s it! Go to your rooms and do your homework. You can come out for a snack in half an hour.”

“No way!” Jordan said. “Isn’t starving your children against the law or something?”

“Jordan, you heard me. Stop arguing and just go! Both of you, go!” Erin didn’t like it when she raised her voice. It meant she’d let them get the better of her.

The door creaked open and Zach appeared. “Girls, you heard your mom, move,” he said, and just like that they scuttled away to their rooms.

“How do you do that?” she asked, turning to face the kitchen cabinets to finish putting away the clean dishes. That and to hide the tears that were welling in her eyes. Things had gotten to her that day and the girls’ petty argument had finished her off.

“You okay?”

Zach wasn’t saying anything and that meant one thing, that he’d already made up his mind that something was wrong. “I’m fine.” Well the silence and the fact that he was moving closer to her.

“You don’t sound fine.”

Erin wanted to run but there was nowhere to run to, even if she did get past the large man that was waiting for an answer. “It’s just the girls bickering...”

Great one Erin, throw your children under the bus, she thought bitterly. “No, that’s not it.”

“Shh, it’s okay.” Zach wrapped himself around her, holding her to him tightly while she melted into a puddle of tears. “Hey, this isn’t like you. What’s brought this on?” he asked finally when her breathing settled and she started to pull away.

Embarrassment was now added to the list of Erin’s overflowing emotions and she just wanted everything to be normal. “I guess I’m just hormonal,” she said hoping the words would scare her husband off the track.

“Don’t do that.”

“Don’t do what?”

“Don’t try to put me off. You’re my wife and I love you and I know when you’re upset. I just need to know why.”

“Just for once, can’t I just be upset because I am?” She knew her voice was rising, but she couldn’t help it. She didn’t even know why she was being so stubborn.

“Did something happen today that was out of the ordinary?”

Erin rolled her eyes dramatically. She should have known she couldn’t put anything over her on husband. He was a sixth grade teacher that used to teach in the city. Interrogation and intimidation were part of his list of life skills. “I went to school for the fundraising meeting and the moms froze me out.”

“What do you mean they froze you out?”

“They didn’t talk to me, Zach. I just sat there in the back and they pretended I wasn’t there.”

“Are you sure? I mean I’m not saying that I disbelieve you. I’m just saying that I’m surprised. Did you try to talk to them?”

“You think it’s my fault.”

“I didn’t say that. I asked you if you’d tried to start a conversation.”

“How could I when they were all talking about their shared lives, lives that I have no part of? They were talking about stuff they’ve done together and stuff they have coming up. They didn’t even see me. It’s always like that.”

“I see.”

“No, you don’t see.”

“Look, I’m glad you’re talking to me about what’s worrying you, but I’m warning you, your attitude is slipping, you need to watch your tone.”

“I’m sorry. It’s just frustrating. You have friends and work colleagues, even the girls have friends. I have nobody. Okay, that sounded mean. You know how much I love my family, but I miss my old life. I miss my friends.”

“Why didn’t you tell me this earlier, honey? I could have done something to help you. Tea?” he said holding up a cup.

Erin shrugged, a cup of tea would be nice, but it usually came with a complimentary lecture.

Zach passed his wife her steaming cup and sat opposite her at the kitchen counter. “You told me you were happy, Erin.” He waited a second but she didn’t respond so he kept going. “You should make more of an effort to see Diana. That’s why we were given the mentors when we moved here, to make settling in easier.”

“When she’s called I always seem to have something on.”

“Oh. Like what exactly?”

“I don’t know, stuff.”

“You have to make time for important things and you would have done if you’d wanted to.”

Erin sipped her tea.

“You didn’t want to Erin, why?”

“I didn’t like it.”

“You didn’t like what exactly?”

“Having someone else to answer to.”

“It wasn’t like that. It was someone to talk over your concerns with.”

“I don’t have any concerns. I’m happy with the way things are with us. I don’t have to talk about the intimate details of our marriage with a perfect stranger in order to make us work. What I need is some fun, some friends.”

“Okay, I hear you and I feel terrible that I’ve been happy while you’ve been miserable. I feel even worse that I didn’t notice. You need help to fit into Corbin’s Bend I can see that now, but in order to make that happen I think we need to talk to our mentors. We can do it together if you like.”

“I don’t like. So all three of you can gang up on me? No thanks.” Erin didn’t get why Zach thought it was necessary to ask other people how to fix everything. It was one thing to ask Brent to come and help with something that needed fixing in the house, but to go to a perfect stranger and explain that your wife was a loser that no one liked was embarrassing. To sit in a group of three all discussing how they could make you less of a loser was worse.

Zach didn’t raise his voice but he gave her the look. “Well we can’t leave things like this. I’ll make arrangements for us all to meet.”

“You can make arrangements for yourself, but don’t bother for me, I’m not going.” Erin knew she was getting herself into trouble, but at that very moment she didn’t care.

“You know very well that is not your decision to make.” Zach’s eyes didn’t leave hers.

“That’s not fair! I’m upset! Now’s not the time to throw around your head of house crap!”

Zach was around to her side of the counter in a second. He lifted her from the stool and stood her before him as easily as he would have a child, despite the fact that she was a grown woman. “Take your little butt into that bedroom and stand in the corner and think about what you just said.”

“I have to make dinner.” That last statement was both lame and clutching at straws she knew, but it was all she could come up with on the spur of the moment.

“Dinner will wait. Now go.” He set her moving with a smack to the back of her jeans.

***

Zach could have kicked himself as he watched his wife disappear into their room. How could he have let this happen? Talk about sleeping on the job. He should have insisted that she didn’t put Diana off when she tried to contact her. His own mentor, Diana’s husband Rick, had tried to warn him that it was too soon for Erin to break out on her own but things had seemed fine. They had hadn’t they? He racked his brain for proof or for clues, something that he should have noticed. Things that were not as they should have been, but he came up empty, Erin had hidden her unhappiness well and he’d let her. He could have headed this off at the pass if he’d been paying attention, he was sure of it. It was time he stepped up.

Zach closed the door gently behind him. After checking on the children and making sure they knew they were to stay in their rooms until they called, he had come in search of his wife. He stood with his back to the door admiring the sight of Erin while he judged her mood. Not repentant, that was for sure. Her back was stiff, her arms were folded and although she had stripped down to her panties as she was supposed to when in trouble, that and the fact that she was actually in the corner, were the only things that were submissive about her stance. That was his Erin, prideful for as long as she could get away with it.

“Can we just get on with it please?” Erin said from the corner.

“Oh, we most certainly can.” Zach took up a spot on the end of the bed. “Seeing as how you’re so eager, you can pick up your hairbrush from the dresser on your way over.” She did so but he could tell that it took everything she had to make her feet move without stomping.

“I’m sorry,” she tried once she was standing before him hairbrush in hand.

“Really? You don’t look very sorry. You look like you’re angry with me.

“I don’t want to talk to Diana. If you loved me you wouldn’t make me.”

“Oh, you’re pulling out all the stops today. First you try stubbornly telling me no. Then you give me attitude and your last-ditch effort is emotional blackmail. I do love you and that’s precisely why I want to help you, which I’m going to whether you want me to or not.” Zach pulled her panties down and waited for her to step out of them, noticing that she was getting sorrier by the second.

“What if the girls come in?” she tried as he took her arm.

“The lock’s on and you know they wouldn’t open a door without knocking, after being told to stay in their rooms. Now stop stalling, bend over my knee.” He knew she would rather he just bent her over his knee but her attitude had made this a lesson in submitting as well. He ignored the pleading eyes. “Don’t make me count, you’ll get extras.”

“Please I’ll be happy,” she almost whimpered.

“One.”

“That’s not fair! I was just talking to you.”

“You were bargaining with me, two.”

“Stop counting, please, Zach!”

“Three.”

“Okay, okay.” She practically threw herself over his knee.

He brought his hand down hard on her right cheek, waiting a few seconds for the color to rise to the surface in shape of his handprint. Another followed on the other cheek.

“Ow! Zach!” she whined, trying to wriggle away from his hand.

“Erin, I don’t want you to act happy,” he said as he found a steady rhythm, punctuating each word with a smack. His hand clapped noisily off her rapidly coloring bottom.

“Please, Zach, you’re doing it too hard!” She kicked her legs wildly, trying to dodge his punishing hand.

“You know how this family works,” he said with another round of spanks to both cheeks. “You wanted to live in a DD marriage.”

“I know, I know. I’m sorry!” she wailed.

“You don’t get to decide when or if you are going to so as your told.” Her bottom was getting very hot and quite pink so he stopped for a second to let her get her breath. “You don’t ever tell me no.” He started the spanking again, but slower and slightly softer. It was enough on an already burning bottom, Erin’s face crumpled.

“I was angry. I’m sorry.”

“I know, but what you said was very disrespectful and you hurt me. I don’t flaunt the fact that I’m head of house, it’s a responsibility that I take very seriously and something that I thought we were in agreement about.”

“We are!” Erin was crying hard now.

Zach was sure her tears had more to do with true repentance than pain now. She’d taken harder spankings than this one plenty of times. He stopped, helped her to stand and pulled her into his arms.

“I’m so..rry.” She sobbed into his shoulder.

“I know.” Deciding another bout in the corner wasn’t necessary, Zach decided to just get the spanking finished. He placed two pillows on the end of the bed and she lay over them without being told.

“How m..any?” Her breath caught in her throat.

He smoothed his hand over her naked bottom before picking up the brush. He didn’t enjoy punishing his wife but he did love the feel of her warm skin under his hand, the sight of her now mostly uniform pink skin, except for the splattering of finger marks on the outer edges. “It would have only been six but you also have three extras, so nine. Open up.” Zach gave the insides of her thighs a light tap and she moved her feet apart, leaning further forward on the bed. He had a perfect view of her newly spanked bottom and just a peek of those sweet lips between her legs. He pressed his hand into the small of her back, wincing when the brush landed with a sharp splat.

Erin groaned and rocked her hips from side to side as the brush connected three times, low down biting into her in the place she hated to be spanked the most.

“Be still.” He waited for her to do just that before her brought the brush down three times in quick succession.

“Ow!” she cried, sinking her head into her folded arms.

“Two more. Nearly done. You’ve been very good, Sweetheart.” He clapped the brush across the underside of each cheek and then threw the offending object on the bed. “That’s it, we’re all done.”

She stood shakily and stepped into his arms. “I’m so sorry,” she sniffled. “I mean it this time, I’ll try har...der.”

“Good girl.”

***

The subject wasn’t brought up again, but Zach made up his mind to go and see Rick himself. The young husband still saw his mentor on a regular basis, he’d come to think of him not only as a mentor but a friend. Rick had tried to tell him on occasion that he should insist that Erin talk to Diana but he’d reiterated what Erin had convinced him of, that things at home were fine. That she had been busy but that she would make time to meet up with Diana soon.

Things had seemed to be going smoothly at the time. He should have listened though to the advice from people who could actually tell that something wasn’t completely ok. Married and in a domestic discipline relationship for twenty years, Rick and Diana were now old hands. They probably wished they’d had the same help offered to them. That was the aim of living in Corbin’s Bend. It wasn’t just a place where you could spank your partner and get away with it. There was a system of support available to all. They’d maybe needed it and yet hadn’t taken advantage of everything that was out there to help in the way they should. Now he was certain that Erin needed to talk to someone and he could think of nowhere better to turn for help. It wouldn’t hurt to give the older couple the heads up, especially Diana. When Erin did go to talk to her mentor, and she was going to go, the problem would already be explained.

***

Erin stirred the pasta sauce and turned the heat down a smidgeon under the bubbling pot of pasta before going back to chop the vegetables for the salad.

“How long is Avvy gonna be, Momma? It was her turn to set the table.”

“She’ll be along. You can swap chores tonight. Avery can clear after dinner.”

“Yes!” Jordan said. Her mood quietened though when her sister emerged from her room with red eyes. Her daddy was right behind her and he was carrying Avvy’s jewelry box.

“I’m sorry, Momma. I shouldn’t have snuck the earrings to school.”

“That’s okay, sweetie.”

Avery hugged her mother’s waist but her big blue eyes followed her daddy as he placed her precious jewelry collection on the top of the kitchen cabinet.

“One week.” Zach moved a curl off his daughter’s face.

Avery took her place at the table opposite her sister.

“Bummer,” Jordan said with a wince. “At least it was only a week. Daddy took my Fireball yoyo for a month and he took money from my allowance.”

“You broke a window at school. In his classroom.”

“Not on purpose. It flew right off my finger!”

“Enough now.” Zach helped Erin to put the food on the table.

Erin poured glasses of water for everyone.

“Buddy says his dad lets them have Coke with dinner,” Jordan said, sipping the water distastefully.

“Just because Buddy says something, doesn’t make it so,” Erin said, taking both her daughters’ hands.

Zach did the same. “Avery would you like to say the blessing?”

“Yes, Daddy,” the little girl said with a sigh. “Dear Lord, thank you for this food that we are about to eat and thank you for all the blessings you give us. Please Lord, can you stop me becoming a social outcast because I have to go to school without my jewelry? Thanks, Amen.”

“Amen,” the rest of the family chorused.

When I read the premise behind this book, I knew this was one Corbin's Bend story that I really wanted to read. That Zack and Erin seemed to imagine that moving to a spanking housing co-op would fix all their problems amused me; I admit to feeling a little bad for Erin for that thought; it would seem that not hiding oneself would help. Except with Zack and Erin not using their assigned mentors of course would lead to issues. I loved the scene where he got frustrated and went to their mentors for help. The dinner party and the bad behavior on Erin's part that led up to it were great. I so enjoyed her making friends and how that led to the pot smoking incident were inspired writing. I was impressed by the care shown by the women during and after (in Erin's case) the women's public spankings. The love Zack showed for Erin was beautiful and obvious throughout. The kids' day the four women organized was such a great community event.

Another great Corbin's Ben Installment - In this story Zach and Erin have moved to Corbin's Bend to make life better but Erin seems to be having trouble. And when she makes new friends she almost gets completely out of control. This one was fun because we got to meet more of the community as the focus wasn't as much on the couple as their place in the greater community.

Another wonderful addition to the Corbin's Bend Series. Each book can read as a stand-alone, but are too good to miss out on any of them. Corbin's Bend is a private community about an hour or so away from Denver, CO. It is a unique community in that it is designed for individuals, couples and even families that practice a "domestic discipline" lifestyle. Zach and Erin Cunningham moved to Corbin's Bend when they marriage was taking a turn for the worse. Since they practiced a DD lifestyle, Zach felt it was best and Erin agreed. But Erin wasn't making friends and it took Zach giving her an ultimatum about contacting her mentor. A dinner party was arranged and she realized how nice the neighbors were. Several of the other stay at home ladies invited her to join them on their Wednesday bowling league, but that was a cover up for other activities, which lands them into legal trouble. Public discipline for the four was humiliating, but their idea for the kids as part of their weekly community service brought the entire community together in a very positive way.

The fourth book in the excellent Corbin's bend series introduced us to Erin and Zach, a couple with two young children already living in Corbin's Bend at the start of the story. Zach and their two young daughters have settled well into the community but Erin is struggling to feel at home and doesn't feel as though she has made any friends. Erin's mentor encourages her to meet new people by helping her host a dinner party. The plan works and Erin befriends Jen, carol and Sienna - a fun bunch of girls who like to go out and sink a few martinis while the kids are at school. Their afternoon activities even include - by way of a sort-of dare - a bit of afternoon pot smoking in a nearby town. When their public disorderliness gets them in trouble with the local law enforcement, the police officer in charge decides to get in touch with Brent Carmichael - President of Corbin's Bend's board. Whether this is an act of kindness or not depends how you feel about the disciplinary measures meted out at Corbin's Bend which occasionally include public spankings in front of the community.Needless to say the ladies receive a very painful lesson although it does come with a marvellous opportunity to redeem themselves with they throw themselves into whole-heartedly. This is a wonderfully funny book. The camaraderie is nicely done and the pot-smoking scene is hilarious. The relationship between Zach and Erin is sweet and believable. I especially liked how the children characters were handled in this story. It's quite a difficult balance including kids in a spanking book but Constance Masters does it beautifully, showing the adult characters to be great - if believably flawed - parents and painting Corbin's Bend as a brilliant place to raise a family. Once again, this series has provided another wonderful, fun and frequently sexy story.

The fourth book in the excellent Corbin's bend series introduced us to Erin and Zach, a couple with two young children already living in Corbin's Bend at the start of the story. Zach and their two young daughters have settled well into the community but Erin is struggling to feel at home and doesn't feel as though she has made any friends. Erin's mentor encourages her to meet new people by helping her host a dinner party. The plan works and Erin befriends Jen, carol and Sienna - a fun bunch of girls who like to go out and sink a few martinis while the kids are at school. Their afternoon activities even include - by way of a sort-of dare - a bit of afternoon pot smoking in a nearby town. When their public disorderliness gets them in trouble with the local law enforcement, the police officer in charge decides to get in touch with Brent Carmichael - President of Corbin's Bend's board. Whether this is an act of kindness or not depends how you feel about the disciplinary measures meted out at Corbin's Bend which occasionally include public spankings in front of the community.Needless to say the ladies receive a very painful lesson although it does come with a marvellous opportunity to redeem themselves with they throw themselves into whole-heartedly. This is a wonderfully funny book. The camaraderie is nicely done and the pot-smoking scene is hilarious. The relationship between Zach and Erin is sweet and believable. I especially liked how the children characters were handled in this story. It's quite a difficult balance including kids in a spanking book but Constance Masters does it beautifully, showing the adult characters to be great - if believably flawed - parents and painting Corbin's Bend as a brilliant place to raise a family. Once again, this series has provided another wonderful, fun and frequently sexy story.

This book is the 4th in the Corbin's Bend series, although it can be read as a stand-alone. This book begins with Zach and Erin already living in Corbin’s Bend. Erin is struggling to fit in with the others within the Corbin Bend Community, she feels isolated from the others and has been hiding this from Zach (who feels bad when he finds out and realises he hadn’t noticed). Erin is forced to interact with some of her neighbours but worries about how they see her; as she begins to make some friends, together they get into trouble. I really enjoyed this book and also the dynamics of their family, the family seemed very realistic with the squabbling of their daughters and the difficulties of moving to a new home. In this book we met a number of other couples; although it took me a little time to get the characters straight as they were all introduced in one scene, I liked the interaction with their neighbours. I would definitely recommend this book. I received this as an ARC for an honest review.

Zachary and Erin Cunningham decide to move to Corbin Bends and live a DD lifestyle with their two daughters when they realized that their family was falling apart. Zach and their daughters have a much easier time fitting in at Corbin's Bend than Erin. Erin find it hard to connect and worries that she will never fit in. With a helping hand from Zach (lol), Erin quickly and happily finds new friends who love to push the envelope. What happens next...read the story and find out. I enjoyed this book and liked reading about an established couple trying to find their way in their marriage and new town. While is a softer story then some in the series, it is well worth your time and shows great depth and realism. This is another winner for a wonderful series. I received an ARC of this book for an honest opinion of this story.

This is a more subdued book four but engaging. Erin and Zach move to Corbin’s Bend after their family seems to be getting out of control. Initially everyone was adjusting well except Erin. She was resisting the help of her mentor to help her transition and began to feel isolated. Soon things changed and with her new friends came new problems requiring a heavy hand of correction. Most of the couples in this story have children and you get a glimpse of the community’s inclusion of children. A quick read.

This was a cute story about a family trying to adjust to life in Corbin's Bend, a spanking community. Erin is having a hard time making friends and feels lonely and her husband, Zach, feels maybe he's been remiss in noticing. Very sweet.

I really enjoyed this book! I love stories with established couples and I loved Zach and Erin. I loved Erin and could completely relate to her. Zach and Erin have recently moved to Corbin Bend and Erin is finding it difficult to find her place and make friends. I loved how supportive Zach was and how he helped (aka spanked) Erin. Once Erin does start to make friends, they start to get into mischief. I loved the women she connected with and the trouble they get into. I would highly recommend this book!

This was such a wonderful idea. A community was created and different authors were invited to play there. So far, all the books have been wonderful. This book is about Zach and Erin. They moved to Corbin’s Bend because they wanted to be able to live the D/d lifestyle more openly. Unfortunately, everyone is happy except for Erin. She hasn’t made friends and is somewhat depressed about the situation. Zach is a good Hoh, but I do think that he spanks too quickly. Anyways, Erin and Zach have a dinner party and Erin makes some new friends. They all get along great, but they do bring her into their mischief. The group gets into some serious trouble and the women are publically paddled. I’m not sure about that. I think that would be a deal breaker for me. But, there is a HEA. As a side note, I would love to read about the rules of this community. They have been hinted at, but I would love to know what they are. Especially for Hoh’s. Anyways, this is another good addition to the series. I can’t wait until the next one comes out. 5 stars

This is the first book I have read in the Corbin’s Bend series but it now I want to know more. This story follows Zack, Erin and their two daughters as they settle into life in Corbin’s Bend. They moved to Corbin’s Bend to save their family. This is a very well written story that provides entertainment as well as a look at some valuable life lessons. I can’t wait to read other books in this series.

I loved this story! I especially loved the women who invited Erin into their inner circle and the trouble that ensued. I laughed out loud, it was hysterical!! Zach and Erin were a great couple, you could feel their love for each other ! Great read and I would highly recommend, even if you have not read any of the others in the series because this one stands alone nicely.

Erin and Zach are still new to Corbin's Bend - the beautiful, suburban dream town which happens to be a Spanko and domestic discipline haven. Zach, a committed head of household, is fitting into the town pretty easily. Erin on the other hand, is finding all the new people and the new situation to be intimidating. Managing her own emotions, making new friends, trying to fit in, and being the mother of two outgoing little girls leaves her with a lot to figure out. In a town and with a husband that has special ways to help people get back on track - Erin needs to navigate things carefully! I would classify this book as a domestic discipline book with an ever so slightly slightly voyeuristic side. My favorite thing about this book was the world of Corbin's Bend and getting to know all of the characters. Erin's character was very relatable and I found myself rooting for her - hoping that she could get past her insecurities and enjoy her community. The writing was clear and easy to follow. The book can be easily understood by someone who is reading the book as a stand alone or as part of the Corbin's Bend series. I recommend that you try it either way. Although reading this one alone will probably just make you hunger for more. There are plenty of spanking, some steamy fun, and shenanigans to keep you entertained as well. Please note that I was provided with an advanced free copy of this book for review purposes.
