Sample Chapter

Liv Aune loves to eat, and she hates to eat. In her recent past, she was a runway supermodel and now showcases plus-sized clothing. She knows she’s healthier, but the habits of a lifetime of being a size zero are hard to break. On a shoot at a private ranch in Texas, Liz meets Trey Journey.

Trey grew up on his family’s Texas ranch, but went into the military and has been successful there. He?d like a family, but after several tours in Afghanistan, he believes it unfair to inflict his dangerous lifestyle on a wife and kids. Plus, he has very specific ideas about a touchy subject: spanking. He wants it in his relationships, both for sexy fun and ? occasionally ? to make a very real and necessary point. He?s just about given up on finding someone ? ever.

When he meets Liv, he’s torn. She needs his help and he’s not afraid to use corporal discipline to aid her through her tough inner struggles. She is curious about it and doesn?t know if she should accept it, or run away screaming. Then, just as their relationship is getting past its tentative start, a catastrophe occurs: a hovering paparazzo snaps a photo of her being bare-bottom spanked by Trey in a semi-public place. If the photo is released, as the photographer-turned-blackmailer threatens, it could end Liv?s career, and their disagreement about how to handle the blackmail might end their relationship.

Liv and Trey take their mutual attraction to sexy, spanking, new heights, but they both have doubts about the longevity of their relationship. Each wants something permanent and abiding, but neither believes they are right for the other person. They have to find their balancing point, the place where spanking discipline meets spanking pleasure, a metaphor for their fragile love.

    I really couldn\\\’t decide between and 4 and 5 so its really more a 4.5. Liv is dealing with all kinds of internal issues and trust is hard for her. Trey likes what he sees but he also has to know that Liv is willing to be what he needs. The blackmail was really a good catalyst to really get them talking about everything. I really liked that both of them knew that they had to take a long look at themselves and what the other person brought to the table to find out if they could make it work. Neither one comprised on their needs. I\\\’m looking forward to meeting the rest of the family.

    A good book with an interesting and thought provoking plot. Liv is a model with a history of eating disorders, who meets Trey, a dominant army major with a thing about bdsm and spanking in particular. They feel a strong attraction but he knows the relationship can only work if she can embrace his interests, and she feels herself drawn to it, but unsure of her feelings.
    I really liked the way the characters were drawn, there was a good sub plot regarding an indiscreet photograph, and I look forward to reading more of the seried.

    This was a fun story that pulled me in right away. Liv is a plus size model that struggles self confidence. Trey Journey sets out to teach her about respect and lands them both in a potentially scandalous situation. Great job introducing the Journey Family.

    I loved this story. I found it engaging, sexy, and choke full of spankings, given with love. I highly recommend this author, and the Journey series as they are all well written and delightful.

    Wow this was a power packed story fully of discipline and love. There are other brothers and I can\\\’t wait for their stories as well. If you want light this is not the book. If you want a fully entertaining story this is the book to get.

    The main character is a plus size model who used to be a mainstream model. We see her struggle with her weight and what is healthy versus what is not. This plays a heavy roll in her budding relationship with Trey Journey. Trey is a dom who owns the land Liv is doing a photo shoot on. It\\\’s a good story that deals with very real issues that many women deal with. It\\\’s also a story about trust and giving into that trust.

    I just finished reading this book for the 3rd time. The first in Patricia Green\\\’s Series about the Journey family. Liv is a former runway model turned plus size model who hates the how she now looks. Trey thinks she\\\’s beautiful. He gives her not only red bottoms and hot sex but the way to self acceptance and love.

    I was disappointed in this book on a few levels. I didn\’t really see a connection between Liv and Trey. He seemed like it would just be a fling, and she was so self-loathing that it was hard to like either character. I didn\’t see a reason to have the picture taken other than to use it for the second book in the series. He seemed very condescending to me, maybe he just rubbed me the wrong way. I also hate it when the guy tells the woman \”Don\’t make me punish you like that again\”. No one made him, he made the decision for himself. I would have loved it for him to show her in different ways how beautiful she was. Talk about different women in the past who were size 12\’s (Marilyn Monroe is a perfect example). Show how she can be a size 12 and still be fit, show her how to eat right. All of these things would have worked so much better. The BDSM thing was also different in this book, almost as if he was making her choose this lifestyle if they were together. I was really looking forward to this, but really felt let down.

    First of all, excellent title for the book. Second of all, I just adore Patricia Green\’s spanking romances. They are so hot, but have great storylines as well. If you\’re in for a steamy read, I highly recommend this one!

    Ms. Green introduces the Journey family in an intriguing way. A fashion model meets Trey Journey, he introduces into the world of spanking and some BDSM. A sideline to their Texas ranch. When two such different worlds collide you should expect fireworks and Liv’s Journey delivers!

    I liked this story. Liv is a plus-size model, which I interpreted to mean that she is a size 12 or so. In other words, a real woman, not the tiny waifs that are in other stories. Anyways, Liv is having a hard time accepting herself as this size and Trey lets her know that he likes her curves, he just doesn’t like her putting herself down! Many spankings occur. I don’t like that one of the spankings he gives her is in public. I think that should be private between them. That’s why I gave it a 4.

    I liked it, but I couldn\\\’t get a sense of how big Liv was. It was like she was plus sized, but then it seemed like she was normal with just some curves. The characters were interesting enough that I have gotten the others in the series. So good start to the series.

    This is a great strat to the Journey family series where you meet Trey and Liv and see how these two become a couple. They definitly have thier problems but neither is willing to to let the other override theor own needs and desires. Its fun watching these two struggle to decide if what they have will last or if it is just a passing fling.

    A good intro to the bdsm society, tastefully done. I liked watching the realtionship development. The sexual encounters were hot, though sometimes a bit vulgar. I liked the female character\\\’s development, but it still could have used a bit more. Overall, though a good read
