Gabby has trouble trusting people because of her mother. Her mother let men abuse her. Therefore, Gabby does not want to follow her example. So when her boyfriend Geoff spanks her while having sex, it throws her for a loop. Geoff is a psychologist who understands the internal dilemma Gabby is having about continuing the spanking.
The chemistry between Geoff and Gabby is blistering. The sex scenes were scorching. Geoff and Gabby are a great couple. I loved that they communicated well. They both can express themselves without getting upset or walking away.
I found this book well written with stimulating and genuine characters. At 50 pages, this book has a well-defined beginning, middle, and end. I enjoyed reading this short story. I was struck with how realistic it was. Overall, I loved this book. While I have not read this author before, I will be on the lookout for more by Ms. Montgomery.
Trust isn’t Gabby’s strong suit. She grew up watching a series of men abuse her mother and swore that one day she’d be strong, logical and able to protect herself. Then she met Geoff. Kind and introspective yet oh so male, Geoff fires her blood and libido like no other man ever has, encouraging her to express and explore her fantasies and let loose her inner passions.
But now Gabby’s faced with a new fantasy that tests everything she believes about strength and everything she fears about vulnerability. She wants Geoff to spank her—and she won’t be satisfied with a simple mid-sex slap to her rear. The mere thought of an intimate spanking is unbearably arousing and she can’t get it out of her head—it’s as scary as it is exciting. For a chance at perfection and intimacy beyond her wildest dreams, Gabby is going to have to overcome her past, face down her inner shame and embrace her deepest desires.
