When Casey Reeves loses her husband to an unexpected heart attack, she gives herself a new mantra: To live life as if it were an amazing adventure, as every single day matters. Unfortunately, one of the things on her bucket list looks far better on paper, and when Casey finds herself up in a plane, strapped to a tall, handsome man, about to undertake her very first parachute jump, she realizes that she'd do just about anything to be able to back out.

Paul Jackson has been a parachute instructor ever since he retired early, and has seen his fair share of terrified women, but when Casey hysterically promises to do anything he asks in return for being able to return to solid ground safely - even let him spank her - he's amused, and not a little intrigued. He's also more than willing to accept her bargain.

Casey finds herself taking a leap of faith - in more ways than one. The two begin their journey together, spending some time on a luxurious yacht, in a tropical rainforest and even in a ranch in outback Australia, as they work their way through her list.

What they discover is that life has a tendency not to follow carefully designed plans. With Paul beside her, Casey quickly learns that living every day to its fullest entails far more than she'd ever imagined. And by her side throughout the action, danger and laughter is a man who not only has no hesitation in reddening her bottom when she deserves it, but can send her soaring into ecstasy with a single look or a touch of his hand.

Finding a new love to equal - or even exceed - her old one was not even on Casey's bucket list but now that she has, can they make it work? Is Paul really the man of her dreams? Best-selling author Maggie Ryan and newcomer Laurel Jane have put their heads and their pens together to come up with this, an exciting tale of romance, lust, love, spanking and adventure. If the subject of domestic discipline or explicit erotica offends you, please do not read this book.

Chapter One

As she was being strapped securely to the man behind her, her bottom tugged tighter and tighter against his crotch, Casey muttered, "Jesus, save me!" Not only did it appear that Jesus wasn't listening, she could easily imagine him rolling his eyes at her audacity�after all, she was Jewish. What the hell had she been thinking? Another tug against yet another strap had her ready to swear that the man was no longer behind her; he had to be actually inside her skin by now. Lifting her eyes heavenward, she shook her head when she heard a chuckle. Surely Jesus wasn't that insensitive, was he? When the chuckle repeated, she realized it came not from the infinite heavens above, but from the man who was only the second man ever to press himself so closely against her backside. That thought had her face flushing and her stomach flipping.

"Almost done," the assistant adjusting the harness said, practically having to shout to be heard above the drone of the engines. "Just a bit tighter and you're good to go."

Tighter? Good God almighty, how on earth could the straps be any tighter? Casey felt like she was getting a crash course in exactly how to make sausage—only she herself was the meat being shoved into a tight casing. Her next thought was quite vivid as she imagined herself bursting through the casing; blobs of fat popping out all over. It took every ounce of her will to close her eyes and try to imagine that, instead of meat, she was Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind; the gorgeous young actress who'd whined a great deal as she clung to the bedpost, her corset being tugged tighter and tighter. Just like Vivien Leigh, Casey tried to imagine that breathing wasn't necessary if it meant that she too would look stunning once the last bow was tied. Casey's trip to Tara was interrupted by her partner in her death wish.

"I believe you were already a bit zoned out when you came aboard. My name is Paul Jackson, but my friends call me PJ."

PJ? What sort of nickname was that for a man? This was followed by visions of a man dressed in pajamas and, of course, that was immediately followed with her wondering exactly what the huge man strapped against her would look like out of those pajamas. Shaking her head as if to dislodge such ridiculous thoughts, she managed to respond. "Well, PJ, I'm Casey Reeves, but you can call me scared shitless."

"Just relax, you're going to be fine. Just breathe slowly; in... out." When his words didn't seem to penetrate her oxygen-starved brain, they were slowly repeated. "Come on; in..."

"I heard you the first time," she snapped, her heart pounding loud enough to drown out the sound of the door being opened and the wind as it whistled through the cabin. Oh God, oh dear God�she could so not do this! She no longer cared about her stupid bucket list. It no longer impressed her that Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, two of her all-time favorite actors, had made such a list hugely popular. As far as she was concerned, they were both total idiots!

"I've changed my mind," Casey shouted as loudly as she could. "I can't fucking do this!"

"I understand you are a tad uneasy, Ms. Reeves, but I don't care to hear such ugly words come from such a beautiful mouth."

His voice was stern, and she would have ignored his words if not for the fact that they were spoken right into her ear. She felt her stomach flipping as the warmth of his breath wafted over her cheek, and was quite surprised to feel a definite tingling in her lady-parts. Suddenly she realized exactly how snugly they had been tethered together. There was definitely something hard pressing against her backside, and she was pretty damn sure it wasn't the parachute. Before she could think of anything to say, he began to nudge her towards the open door.

Pushing back against the relentless shove forward, Casey tried yet again. "Wait�no! I really can't do this, please! Oh, Jesus!" Reaching out, she gripped the edges of the doorframe. "Fuck! Shit! Fuck!"

"What did I just say about cursing, young lady?" PJ, or 'Pushy Jackass' as Casey instantly renamed him, yelled into her ear. "You are very close to earning yourself a nice hard spanking."

"Fuck that!" she screamed in response. "Get me safely on the ground and I promise you can blister my ass!" With the wind shrieking past her, she was ready to drop to her knees and convert to Christianity when she heard his question.

"Promise?"

"Cross my heart and hope to die!" Of course, her heart was about to burst already but heck, that was just a mere technicality.

"I'll take that deal, and nobody is going to die."

"Oh, thank you, Jesus." Casey released her hold on the door in preparation of being pulled back into the sanctuary of the airplane.

"We'll take the fastest route down."

Then came another nudge, the floor disappeared beneath her feet, and they began to plummet down towards the earth. Even with the wind screaming past them, it became clear that her partner in suicide was laughing.

She shrieked again as she was yanked upwards and back when Paul pulled the ripcord to deploy the parachute. As their descent slowed dramatically, Casey decided that if she was about to die, she wouldn't waste time doing any saluting�the least she could do was take in her final view of the earth before she splattered into it. Glancing down past her feet, she gasped. What appeared to be a huge patchwork quilt spread out beneath her was in reality the greens, browns, tans and blues of the ground still far below them. Looking around, she finally released her intense fear; the view was fucking incredible! As they fell through wisps of clouds, she laughed, flinging her arms wide as if to embrace the sky.

Far too quickly, she heard PJ giving her directions, reminding her of the proper landing procedure. Something about positioning herself with her knees tucked up to her chest and her muscles loose and relaxed. He told her to just let go, to allow him to control the movement.

Her brain might have been listening, but her body was definitely imagining another scenario as his large hand came around her, fingers splayed across her lower abdomen to press her even closer to him. She was not truly aware of anything else until the sensation of flying disappeared.

Looking down, she was amazed to discover that she was standing on firm ground and, while she was still trembling, it was no longer from fear. Casey could feel her entire body quivering as the attendant worked to release her from the harness. The moment she was free, she turned and flung her arms around the wonderfully brave man who had shared in the incredible adventure.

"God, that was fucking fantastic! When can we go again?"

Paul was grinning but also shaking his head as he looked down from where he towered over her. Instead of disentangling himself from her arms, she felt him pulling her even closer. Feeling his breath against the shell of her ear, she shuddered. Her nipples tightened as he lowered his mouth, and she wondered if she'd feel him gently biting on the lobe.

"As soon as you learn I mean what I say. Before you jump again, young lady, I believe I owe you a beet red ass."

Casey drew back, flushing as she looked up at him. Disconcerted, as that was definitely not what she'd been expecting, she felt her entire body go on alert at the look in his eyes. Hell, she knew she could just walk away�well, as soon as all these stupid straps were released. This hadn't been a free ride after all; she had paid for this terror-filled, joy-inducing experience, and he had absolutely no right to either expect her not to curse, or to punish her if a choice word or two just happened to slip free. The moment she remembered he had specifically said the word 'spanking', her body betrayed her and she stepped back into his arms, her cheek pressed against the rock-hard slab of his chest.

"What if I say I'm sorry?" she whispered. She felt his hands dropping from her waist to stroke down her back, and gave a contented sigh. When they moved again, opening to allow his palms to fill with her backside, she stiffened for only a moment; the sigh turning into a moan as he gave each of her cheeks a firm squeeze.

*****

Paul smiled as he held her, trying to decide which he liked best; the feel of her breasts pressed against his chest or the incredible sensation of her bottom pressing hard into his hands. Either way, there was just something about this feisty woman that had had his cock going to attention from the moment his crew member had begun the lengthy process of preparing them for the tandem jump. She had been full of chatter until the moment the doors had opened, and then had used curse words to attempt to disguise her fear. He knew she had nothing to truly fear; he had jumped hundreds of times and could work the riggings blindfolded. His grin grew as he wondered how Ms. Casey Reeves would look wearing a blindfold and nothing else. Once he worked that jumpsuit off her trembling little body, he would make sure that the glorious ass that was currently filling his palms gave off more than enough heat to warm his entire body, not just his crotch.

"I'd say you will be sorry," he answered firmly, as he bent to place a kiss on the top of her head. "You don't seem like the type of woman who would renege on a promise. I got you safely on the ground, therefore I owe you a blistering." He was thrilled when her response wasn't to pull away and accuse him of being some type of pervert. Instead, she moved only her head to stare up at him, her eyes showing both confusion and desire.

"Look, PJ�" she paused, and he saw her lips twitch. "PJ�hmm, perhaps you are thinking that a spanking is 'Perfectly Justifiable', but I thought you were teasing."

"Oh, babe, you'll learn that I never kid about important things. Call me Paul if that will help you remember I'm very serious." His fingertip moved to stroke lightly down her cheek as he leaned a bit closer. "Besides, I'd like to help celebrate the loss of your virginity."

Casey closed her eyes for a brief moment to enjoy his touch against her skin and felt a jolt of promise that his words evoked. "I haven't been a virgin in eons," she teased, her smile matching his.

"This is the first time you've ever gone skydiving, right?" When she nodded, he grinned. "Then, babe, I just popped your cherry."

"'Oh..." It was the only word she could utter as all sorts of delicious visions flew through her mind as fast as the wind had flown by her body only minutes ago.

"Good girl," Paul said, giving her bottom another squeeze and her hair another kiss. "I'll get you settled and then take care of the equipment." He led her inside the hangar to a small room filled with tables and vending machines. When she asked for coffee, he brought her a steaming cup and a spoon in case she wished to add anything to the dark brew.

"You might decide a soda is better," he suggested as he opened his hand to allow several small containers of cream to fall to the table. "The coffee's been on the burner a long time and looks quite strong."

"I like things long and strong," Casey said, the tip of her tongue appearing to slowly trace along her bottom lip.

His cock jerked inside his jumpsuit. Yes, he would definitely need to show her exactly who the strong one in their relationship was going to be. Bending down, he spoke with his lips only inches from hers.

"Good to know, darling. Then you'll be quite pleased to discover that my hand against your ass will be very strong." He slowly straightened to his full height and watched as her head lifted to follow him. Giving her a smile, he continued, "And, young lady, I guarantee you that strength ensures your spanking will continue for a long, long time."

He turned and left the room, waiting until he was positive he was out of her sight before adjusting his erection. He gathered the huge pile of silk into his arms and carried it to the chute table, where he would take care of checking every line and every strap of the equipment. By the time he'd finished going over every inch of the parachute before repacking it, Ms. Reeves would have had plenty of time to decide her future. He for one was praying she wouldn't let her fears override her sense of adventure.

*****

Casey absently stirred the third container of creamer into the sludge that was masquerading as coffee. Taking a sip, she grimaced and placed the cup back onto the table. In all honesty, the brew was not what she wanted to be tasting. Her eyes went back to the door through which Paul had disappeared. His last words had her heart racing. For the first time she truly considered that he hadn't been teasing about spanking her�but surely he hadn't been serious. What sort of man threatened to spank a woman he had just met? The thought of those hands, those strong hands, descending onto her ass had her squirming in her chair. Realizing that she was mumbling another sort of prayer had her wondering if he would he spank her over her clothing or whether he would bare her completely. Heat flooded her face and moisture flooded her panties.

Standing, she looked around to get her bearings. Leaving the coffee on the table, she left the room. It took her only a few minutes to find the locker room, and a few more for her to change out of the jumpsuit into her street clothing. As she brushed her hair, her thoughts again turned to spanking and the question of whether Paul used any implements when his hand got tired.

"Get a grip," she mumbled, as she stared at the wooden hairbrush. "What in the hell has gotten into you, Casey Reeves? You don't even know him, and yet you're praying he'll take you over his thighs� oh, and what firm thighs the man must have!" Shaking her head, she shoved the brush into her purse and took several deep breaths. She had a choice to make; either go climb into her car and drive away, or return to the break room and wait to see if Mr. Paddling Jumper was full of anything other than hot air. With a grin, she turned and was soon seated once more at the table, her legs crossed, her foot swinging as she considered what could be the unexpected and yet perfect ending to an incredible day.

As she waited, she thought about what had led her to decide to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. She had been married for twenty-five years to Jack, the love of her life. He had left her shortly after her forty-fifth birthday. Left wasn't exactly the right word�no, he had died of a heart attack at entirely too young an age. They had never had children, though it hadn't been from lack of trying. Instead of letting the fact that they would never be blessed with little ones depress them, they had grown closer, sharing everything together. Jack had been the perfect husband and, with his passing, she'd discovered that he'd made sure she would never have to worry about a thing. Investments ensured that her financial future was secure. His wealth, combined with her government pension, meant that she could live comfortably�as well as explore anything her heart desired.

Casey had always wanted to be able to play the piano, so she bought a piano and took lessons. Within eight months, she could play lovely classical music, as well as some toe-tapping jazz. Being gifted with a photographic memory made learning to read music very easy. That talent had also enabled her to learn to speak another language. Learning Hebrew, the language of her ancestors, was followed by learning Spanish, French and a little Italian. Her love of travel had her choosing the language of places she wished to visit. Computers helped her in her lessons, and it didn't take too long before she considered herself something of a computer geek as well.

One day it had dawned on her that, while all of these endeavors had been educational and could be considered as laudable goals, they were not exactly giving her the sense of really living her life. Jack's death had taught her that no one had any guarantee what tomorrow might bring, or even if they'd be blessed with another tomorrow. While she was able, she wanted to experience things that made her heart race and her blood rush through her veins. That was how skydiving had made it onto her list, and that was why she remained seated in the cheap plastic chair, waiting to see if the first man who had made her feel alive since Jack's death was a man who meant what he said. When Paul pushed through the door, Casey's leg stopped swinging as her heart stuttered in her chest.

"I'm very pleased to see you are still here," he said.

Casey attempted to think of something witty to say, but every word stuck in her throat. The only thing she could do was nod.

"Ready?"

She thought about quipping that she had been born ready but for some reason, the man towering over her looked quite capable of making her prove it. "Um, to go celebrate? Is that what you mean?"

"Believe me, Casey, you'll always understand exactly what I mean." He paused to hold out his hand and she took it automatically. "We'll have some dinner, and then for dessert�well, at least for my dessert anyway�I will give you the spanking you've been promised. This is your last chance to back out. If you agree, and by that I mean agree to both dinner and having your bottom blistered, I'll pick you up tonight. Now tell me, are you ready?"

She allowed him to pull her from her chair and into his arms. When she felt them wrap around her, she gave the only answer that made any sense.

"Yes, Sir, I'm ready."

I really enjoyed this book. It snagged me from page one and had me laughing. There was a lot of action, interesting characters and a mystery to go along with the hot sex and great spanking scenes. Truthfully, it's hard to surprise me, but the ending in this one did just that. A great story, ladies!

This is an interesting story because most spanking/dd stories start out with one or more partners being new to the idea. But in Realizing we have Casey who is a widow who had been in DD relationship with her last husband. So the minute Paul takes charge and threatens a spanking she feels comfortable and maybe even comforted by the idea. What follows is a series of crazy adventures that feel larger in life as they explore their relationship and push new boundaries. The surprise twist at the end of the book made the whole story so much better.
