Who said being a dominant Sugar Daddy was going to be easy?

Self-made millionaire Reed Douglas wanted a woman in his life, but he didn’t have the time for even the barest of social rituals. Tricia Barton flew down to spend some time with her cousins after the death of her mother, hoping a change of scenery would help her slough off the remnants of depression.

She never expected to have her life turned upside down by her cousins undeniably hot and very dominant boss who didnt hesitate to suggest that she let him keep her in a style to which she definitely didn’t want to become accustomed. But one of the few things left out of their very special arrangement was that she ended up finding herself over his lap more often than not!

    This was a very well written story. It was a little tame for my tastes. Thus the three out of five star rating.

    Trish Barton is depressed after a divorce and the death of her mother. She goes to visit her cousin Maggie in Tampa. Florida who is only to happy to set her up with her very wealthy and dominant boss Reed Douglas. He is immediately taken with her and he overhears during a conversation of the two ladies that Trish wouldn\\\’t mind being kept by a man. Being a little lazy and desiring time for her writing (spanking stories of course) it is a fantasy that appeals to her. Reed is a busy businessman and the thought of a desirable always available companion definitely appeals to him. He approaches Trish as to whether she\\\’d really do that and negotiations finally open between them in earnest. Our-non gold digging heroine, who is definitely attracted to the dominant Mr. Douglas, offers frustratingly cheap terms to our generous hero and resists all of his efforts to personalize their relationship even though Reed would rather she be his wife than just his mistress. Great dialogue to hold our interest as the characters are expanded and we care more and more for their plight. Of course we eventually get to the spanking and the obligatory happy ending. (Spoiler alert) Although I knew exactly what was going to occur at their two year contract renewal, and if I was Reed it would have happened at the first year\\\’s renewal, it all happens too fast for me. I consider Chapter 10 to be way too short with a too abrupt ending as it needed to be several pages longer for my taste. A expanded rewrite of the last last chapter would make this 5 stars out of 5 for me along with a sequel. I want to know more about Trish and Reed just as a good story should do. I thought this was a very good romantic read with a lot of sex to boot.

    Fabulous story! Enjoyable from beginning to end. THIS is the Carolyn Faulkner I recommend to everyone. It\\\’s tame enough to be an intro to the types of stories Ms. Faulkner writes, but intense enough to interest someone that already reads this genre. It\\\’s a fun story through and through.

    This is one of my favorite Carolyn Faulkner stories. I love how Reed\\\’s dominant side comes through. Tricia doesn\\\’t have to tell him she fantasizes about spanking and she doesn‘t fight him, too much. It is a natural part of both of their personalities. He is dominant. She is submissive. Their relationship is beautiful because it is real.
    I already owned this story and reread it because it was the story of the month. I’m glad I did. I enjoyed it just as much the second time around.

    Trish is overcoming the hurt and lose of her mother and seems to be having time with her depression. Her cousin and best friends introduces her to Reed. There is an instant feeling between the two of them and Trish\\\’s bold statement about being kept gets his attention. Despite it being her idea Trish is still very shy and hesitant. There are many mis-steps and misunderstanding along the way. Reed quickly realizes he\\\’s looking for more than an arrangement but Trish uses the contract to keep him at arm\\\’s length. I think Reed\\\’s quite persistence does a lot to heal Trish and bring her to the point accepting love. This was the second time I read the story and found it just as powerful a story the second time around.

    I loved this story. A very independent, stubborn woman talks about being kept by a rich man with no expectation it would happen until she is overheard talking about it. Trish meets Reed and he takes her up on the proposition. Fun to watch them work it out, he dominate and her secretly seeking that type of man.

    I liked this story a lot and the natural way the relationship developed between the characters. The story is not rushed and the way Trish and Reed fall together is really nice to read about.

    In regards to the spanking scenes, it is a lot tamer than this author usually writes, something I appreciated and something that made the story feel more believable for me.

I always pictured women who were kept by rich men as shallow money grubbers, but this story made the fantasy seem like it could be much more than that.

    I read this story a while ago, before the active seeking of reviews by BBP. I liked it and I enjoyed that the story didn\\\’t involve excessive discipline. I really enjoyed the playing out of the love story, and how Reed fell in love with Trish, despite himself. It washed a very enjoyable, light read. One that brought a smile to my face.

    God, I can\\\’t stop reading this. It\\\’s not just the fact that Trish and Reed compliment each other so well, it\\\’s the feeling that things between them are real. And while this is a spanking story, the spankings don\\\’t overwhelm the relationship and you get to see how these two connect on other levels as well. Granted, the story and the situation rely an awful lot on Reed\\\’s wealth and financial means (hence the 4/5), but other than that piddling detail it\\\’s truly an enjoyable read.

    I have read this story at least five times and enjoyed it each time. I adore the way Tricia can throw Reed of his balance. For once, money and power are not enough for Reed to control the situation. Tricia is a strong, independent woman who knows what she wants. She isn\\\’t changing for anyone. Reed is a powerhouse but can\\\’t get what he wants without changing. The natural progression in their lives that include the increases in punishments and control make sense. It\\\’s a fun plot and well written.

    One of my most favorite books by Ms. Faulkner — it is always fun when the woman is stubborn about keeping the relationship in certain boundaries and the HOH, who is normally being chased has to do the chasing. Very entertaining read!

  101. Laney

    This was not my favorite by book by Faulkner. It was well written and edited. The sex was hot. Howevever, because it was one of her shorter books, I started to become afraid that the discipline part of the main charatcers\\\’ relationship, would begin happening when the book was just about to end. I was hopeful when we finially saw a warning swat occur slightly less than half way through the book, when the hero warns our heroine. Yet, the spanking/discipline dynamic didn\\\’t take off quickly from here. According to my Kindle, I had read 67% of the book before he gave her the first spanking of the book. The build up was needed, and interesting – but was too long considering the length of the book. It seemed like their new spanking/discipline dynamic was just taking off when the book ended. This story needed to be a lot longer. It was getting really interesting and just ended. Thus 3 out of 5 stars from me. I agree with other reviewers who have said there needs to be a sequel or that the last chapter ended too abruptly.

    I really enjoy the sugar daddy type of these stories so needless to say I really liked this one! It\\\’s a quick read. I think the only thing I didn\\\’t like about this story was the lead character\\\’s attitude. I don\\\’t like for females in these stories to be pushovers by any means but a little more submissiveness would have been nice in some parts. I like long stories but this one didn\\\’t rush through the plot or gloss over their relationship. I also loved that she was a spanking writer, that was very cute.

    Great read. I have read this book already several times already. If you are going to a kept woman, Reed is a very good choice.

    Loved it. This definitely is one of my favorites from Carolyn Faulkner. I thought that the Trisha and Reed were great together. I loved her independent streak in the face of all of his money, and I loved the ending. Great job, Carolyn.

    This is one of my favorite novels to read. I love Carolyn Faulkner as an author just the right balance of romance with a strong man! The dynamic in the relationships she portrays is well played out and in-depth into the characters. Lots of great scenes that make you feel like it is a real relationship. Would recommend.

    I have always enjayed Carolyn Faulkner\\\’s stories. This is well written as usual. Perhaps as the book is relavtively short, it starts gently and then peaks just as it ends. The disciplined relationship was reached just as the book was just about to end, mainly because the final time-jump leading to the annual review.
    I would hope that the relationship could be explored in a sequel, or that a penulatimate -or post review chapter could be added, thoughthe ending when it came I thought was excellent, could we just have a little more getting there, pleas ?

    Yet another book that I did not expect to enjoy, but I REALLY did!! I loved how their love and passion grew. They both expected it to just be a business transaction, and yet to see their hearts soften towards each other was really precious to see. 🙂 Another great book by Ms. Faulkner

    I loved this story, such an outrageous proposition and yet it turns out to have worked really well for them (well I guess of course it had to, it\\\’s a story…). Anyway. I liked that she\\\’s still an independent and feisty woman, I like that it took her a while to realise that she wanted more from him than they\\\’d agreed to in their contracts. Lovely how their friendship and relationship developed.

    Very very good stroy that starts off with a bang and just keeps going and keeps getting better and better. Wonderful characters that really make you feel for them and make you want them to get their HEA.

    This is very easily one of my favorite stories where someone hires a mistress, and they may or may not fall in love. Full of spankings and sex and plot, this is a very engaging tale with perfect character chemistry, back-story and enough uncertainty for the future that I couldn\\\’t put it down!

    Another well done piece by Carolyn. I loved the interactions between Trish and Reed. He knows how to give her exactly what her fantasy is but ends up wanting more. The only question is does she want the same. A great romance story that leaves you wanting more.

    I\’m between a 2 and 3 on this book. It was a fun story, a fairy tale really. I enjoy fairy tales, but the problem is they are often simply told with little to no depth. That was the problem here IMO.

    Trish is visiting her cousin after her mother dies. She is understandably at loose ends and very depressed. Her cousin\’s boss, Reed, overhears Trish tell her cousin about this fantasy she has about being kept by a wealthy older man. Reed takes her up on it and before she knows what\’s happened she has a year long contract as Reed\’s full time mistress. It is a really interesting set up, but we never know why Trish goes for it really. Sure it\’s a great fantasy, but an intelligent, independent woman would have some underlying reason for becoming a mistress – wouldn\’t she? There was loads of potential here for a look into two rather interesting people coming together in an atypical way (at least in my world it is atypical).

    So we are told Trish becomes a mistress and are given all sorts of interesting legal information. (It actually is pretty interesting.) She and Reed settle into this relationship that she tries to keep business like (thinking that\’s what he wants) and he gradually wants more, while feeling hurt that she doesn\’t. But they never talk to each other!!! She says no to more money, he spanks her – that is their communication. I have no problem with the spankings, Trish likes them, and I like reading about them. But it became frustrating that they never asked each other, \”why?\”

    This goes on until the end of our fairy tale when we get the HEA I always want. But this one was simply \”poofed\” into the end of the story to wrap things up. All too quickly and neatly for my taste, because Trish and Reed still don\’t really know each other.

    I realize I\’m expecting an awful lot out of essentially a lighthearted story. But we kept getting glimpses of more, there was so much potential for more. More show, less tell.

    Now this is a story I wished I could live. What more compliment can you get then to have a man whom has everything and can get any girl want you! I really liked how the hero gave a little distance when needed but made sure he was there for her when she needed it too, whether she realized she did or not. I am referring to the graveyard scene.

    Oh to be a kept woman and have a Sugar Daddy! When self-made millionaire Reed Douglas over hears Tricia Barton and her cousin discussing one night the virtues of being a mistress, he makes the proposal to make it happen. The plot builds at a nice level keeping the reader captivated as their arrangement blossoms . The dialogue between Reed and Trish is entertaining and the chemistry continually develops as their arranged relationship develops over the years. Unlike most stories with a mistress, they live together at a house she picked and he pays for. She isn\’t your money hunger mistress and refuses gifts, which totally baffles him. What starts out as a few swats to her bottom does eventually become OTK BB spankings. The sex is not overly explicit.
