Switch (the Trainer) by Kate Richards

logo

By Anastasia Vitsky

Courting DarknessThe first time I read Switch (The Trainer)Kate Richard’s newest book, I was incensed. The plot developments were unfair to the main character! How could he… how could she… it was an injustice!  Then I stepped back to evaluate my reaction. Emotional investment in characters is a sign of good writing, and this book made me care about its characters. For that accomplishment alone, Richards is to be commended. Switch brings readers into a world of sympathetic characters, believable conflict, and satisfying resolution. Along the way, we also enjoy some delightful spankings and sizzling sexual action.

The premise for Switch will resonate with many practitioners of DD (domestic discipline). The marriage flounders, communication fails, and both partners have become trapped by inflexible relationship patterns. In this case, Rick’s irresponsibility fuels Esme’s disappointment and lack of trust. They seek help from a character known as the “Trainer,” a DD consultant. As the Trainer teaches Rick how to spank Esme, the couple re-discovers the foundation of their marriage: love, a commitment to each other, and a scorching sexual chemistry.

Yet, rebuilding their marriage is not as easy as applying a chosen implement to the correct portion of Esme’s body. Rick and Esme rush into DD without considering its limitations. Their conflict and struggles are both poignant and real, recognizable to nearly every new practitioner of DD. Herein lies the secret strength of Switch: Richards helps us understand our own real-life relationships in a better way, and she packages everything in a shiny happily-ever-after. Life lessons with a finishing touch of sweetness.

A Husband’s Duty by Dinah McLeod

logo
how to find a girlfriend

p>husbandsduty_fullA Husband”s Duty centers around two sisters, Jessica and Beth. They used to be close growing up, but have had a falling out and hardly speak to each other anymore. The story gives you a glimpse inside the marriage of Jessica and her husband Jonathon, as well as the relationship between Beth and her fiance Zach.

 

I liked that the book delved into the conflict between the two sisters and how it also affected the relationships between them and their significant others. Jessica will not tell Jonathon why she is no longer speaking to her sister, brushing it off as something that happened so far in the past that she doesn”t wish to address it. This causes a rift between them and tension in their marriage, especially when Jonathon invites Beth and Zach for dinner.

 

I thought the book was really well written with likable and believable characters. The author did a good job of demonstrating the love each sister had for the man in her life, she also portrayed the hurt and the anguish between the sisters very realistically. At first, when you find out what caused the initial tension between Jessica and Beth it seems silly, but then you realize it has more to do with the way they have treated each other over the years than this one isolated incident.

 

And of course this is a spanking romance, so mixed in with the sister anguish and lover”s quarrels is some good spanking action. Jessica and Jonathon are practicing Domestic Discipline in their marriage and Beth and Zach are toying with the idea of introducing it into their relationship after learning about what it is. I thought the author wrote the character”s perspectives on DD in an honest way.

 

 

I give A Husband”s Duty four paddles. It”s a light, quick read with some interesting characters.

Kaylee's Keeper – The Best Intro to BDSM Story I've Ever Read!

******I’m trying some new formatting in my reviews, in an attempt to be more subjective and specific.  Instead of just one rating (of 1-5 stars), I will be rating specific items, like:

Sex, spankings, plot, characters….

Please let me know what you think. I would love some constructive feedback to make the review system even better!

Review of Kaylee’s Keeper

This is the second book in the Masters of the Castle series, but can be read as a stand-alone.

It is definitely one of the best introduction to BDSM stories I have ever read!

Set in a Scottish castle, where all your dreams come true, including role playing of dominance and submission, and many different fetishes to suit everyone's tastes.

Kaylee saves up her money for the short fantasy weekend at the Castle, getting much more than she bargains for.

Kaylee has fantasized about being spanked for a while now, but has never actually been spanked.  She signs up as an experienced BDSM’er, hoping to not waste a single spanking moment, during her stay at the castle.  But reality proves more frightening than fiction, when she is confronted with a Master who intends to whip the daylights out of her.  She screams her safe word, and runs for safety, embarrassed and angry.

The Master of the Castle, Master Marshall takes her under his “wing” and settles her in for another role. But not before he takes her over his knee for her very first spanking.  He includes some special “attentions”, as he shows her just how arousing a spanking can be.  She loves it.

What I loved about this story was the introduction to some of the different scenes in this whole lifestyle.  Kaylee was taken through each role, and given an opportunity to learn more, and try out each one.  She tried, or was introduced to roles like:

Sexy maid

Pony play

Age play, from diapers all the way to teenaged school girls

And personal submissive

This was a great way to gently show the different dynamics without being forceful or harsh. As Master Marshall stated, everyone has their own role. Don’t judge another person’s fetish.

Through every failed role attempt, Kaylee returns to the safety of Master Marshall, and his hard handed attentiveness.

But the rules are, there is no contact after the weekend is done. So she can’t fall for him.

I loved this story. It was sexy and erotic, and delivered a ton of deliciously different spankings. The Dominance and Submission, and hard thorough punishments were a façade, because everything was consensual, giving the illusion of non consenuality.  It was wonderfully erotic!

The author did a fantastic job of showing the emotions, feelings, and desires that Kaylee went through, over this short weekend – her fears, confusion, judgment, acceptance, and her overwhelming desire to find where she fit, and what fetish complemented her. It was beautifully done!

I loved this book, and even gained a new appreciation for accepting other people’s fetish without judging.  That was a great public service message skillfully woven into the story.

Rating:

Spankings – 5 paddles. new_five_paddle_review

Fantastic! Plenty of howling and moaning, and red bottoms to make me happy.

Sex – 5 orgasms.new_five_paddle_review

The scenes were intense and hot, totally arousing to read. There was even a ménage scene!

Overall plot – 5 stars.new_five_paddle_review

I loved the whole premise of being truthful to yourself. Accepting your desires, and not being afraid or embarrassed to ask for what you want, or explain what you don’t want.

Sub plot – extra points for the PSA about not judging others.  There are many different fetishes, and just because it doesn’t work for one individual, doesn’t make it any less valid.

Characters – 4.5 stars. four_half_paddle_review

I adored Kaylee, and absolutely loved seeing everything through her eyes as a new Spanko.  But I would have appreciated getting more background on Master Marshall, since he was such a big part of the story.

Ending – 4.5 stars. four_half_paddle_review

I Loved the HEA! Even though it seemed a little abrubt, the HEA lover in me was happy.

Additional notes – I wish I had read this story, before I jumped into some of the stronger BDSM’s. I think it would have been an easier transition for me had I read something like this, first.

I loved this book!!

Maren Smith created a delicious fantasy that scratched all of my fetish itches.

Also found in this book:

–      explicit BDSM themes in a romance setting

–      spanking

–      anal play

–      mouth-washing

–      schoolroom play

–      D/S

–      Consensual punishments

–      Sexual activity

Tiptoeing into Age Play – Guest Post by Korey Mae Johnson

logo

by Korey Mae Johnson

When I decided to write an age play story in March, I felt immediately like I was out of my league. Age play was still very “taboo” for me, which is saying a lot—I work with some pretty naughty stories and I’m all but desensitized to so much of spanking literature. I couldn’t talk about it with people, and I’ve met absolutely tons of people who do age play. Still, the mention of it always turned my ears red and set my heart racing.

I used to go as far as flatly saying I didn’t like it, didn’t agree with the lifestyle, simply because it made me feel so nervous every time I was exposed to it. Now, I did like reading about it—I didn’t like that I felt ashamed about liking it.

beingtheirbaby_large

I decided to explore it more and write an age play because I wanted to address something that I felt strongly about and wanted to learn more about. I wanted to know why it made me nervous, and excited, and to get to the depths of this blossoming kink. Before writing the book, all I had done was go to a seminar on age play, read a couple of books about the lifestyle, read some others’ age play literature, and then of course, I scoured the internet for everything I could learn. There’s still so much I don’t know, but at the end of the day, I did learn one very important thing:

Age play is broad. There’s no “right” or “wrong”. Some spankos don’t like to be spanked in little form, some like to role play as babies, some as children, some as teenaged schoolgirls. Some like it as a simple stress relief and some like using it in their sex play.

In my first age play story, Being Their Baby, a lot of the focus is using age play as a lifestyle (rather than a scene before sex), and using it in a sexual manner. I was nervous about it—I was sure that I’d get a lot of flak from the people who don’t role play their own scenes in a very sexual way. Luckily, I was pleasantly surprised by my wrongness. I’m beginning to see that a lot of people are really drawn in by the idea of ageplay, and everyone for their own reasons. The age players were so utterly supportive of me on my quest to try out this kink in my own stories and even my own life, to do it at my own pace and to do it in the way that I felt was right for me.

I didn’t think I’d ever play with ageplay in real life, although I was always drawn into age play books. Then, I was heading out of a popular spanking party (Boardwalk Badness Weekend), and I was still going through conversations I had with a couple of my play partners about age play, and grudging how I was too nervous to even get into any deep conversations about the subject with people that enjoy it. Grudgingly, I said to my husband, James, “I don’t think I could ever do age play. I’m horrible at acting like a ‘little’.”

James raised his eyebrow at me and smirked and said, “Honey, the only thing that separates you from a little is that you don’t call me ‘Daddy’.”

I thought about this, stunned. He was right. My husband tends to coddle me. He supports me and tries to always help me improve myself in a positive direction, guiding me like a child. He cuddles me every night, he tucks me in if he can’t go to bed at the same time, he makes me take naps and makes sure I eat right and even makes and goes in with me to all of my doctor’s appointments. He’s always made my happiness and well-being his first priority.

Somehow, that was an icebreaking moment for me. I looked at him, “Uh… Do you want me to call you ‘Daddy’ sometime?” I was dry-mouthed with my own husband. I asked it as if I was teasing him, as if he of course wouldn’t want me actually calling him that.

Again he smirked, “Yeah,” he merely said, and drove out of the parking lot. After that, we sat their quietly in the car. I had no guts to continue on with the conversation.

After that, he started to constantly call me ‘Babygirl’, although he was very patient with me calling him ‘Daddy’. I couldn’t get the word out of my mouth for another six weeks. I became bolder, whinier, but calling him ‘Daddy’ always put a blush to my cheeks. One of the things he delights in now is taking me to public places and forcing me to answer his question with ‘Yes, Daddy’ or ‘No, Daddy’. James loves to see me blush. He loves how extremely submissive and awkward I become when he forces me to go into littledom.

When writing the book, I was definitely aware of the power of the words used in play. Words and titles like ‘Daddy’ or ‘Uncle’ or ‘Mommy/Mama’ really slap someone into a mindset very quickly, at least in my experience. It’s not easy to get used to using those titles with someone, and I feel like it bestows a sort of power onto them, and it was a first step for me. I think that when James treats me as a ‘little’ and I call him ‘Daddy’, the rest of the play actually just happens.

In my age play story, the heroine Sophie is a vanilla girl who is merely exposed to a ménage relationship and then treated by these partners as a little. Slowly but surely, Sophie began to fulfill the role that was cut out for her, and it just happens. Honestly, I wrote that even though I had never felt that sensation myself. I had only hoped that one day that would happen to me—if I was treated enough like a little, then I would finally come into my ‘inner little’.

There’re definitely a lot of people in the age play community that don’t have that problem—they can find their inner little just fine on their own, and come into it very quickly. I was really worrying since writing the book, and during the time I was writing the book, that I was writing about a process that wasn’t realistic and didn’t often happen.

I just went to my first age play party yesterday, and I was reminded that becoming ‘little’ for so many ladies seemed as natural as breathing for them, while I felt like I had to drop into it slowly. My husband/’Daddy’ helped by pulling me onto his lap, kissing my forehead, cuddling and coloring with me in a coloring book. Somehow, with seeing so many littles around me and being so cared for by James made his ‘Daddy’ role finally really strike me, and at the same time, my role was finally just realized. I dropped right into the play and was playing on the rug with Breanna and Nikki Hayse, who were also in attendance, in no time at all. It actually all clicked into place.

I’m going to sum up my rambling about my experiences with age play here:

Age play not something you need to do a certain way. There’re a million directions you can go with it (if you want to experience it), and there’s tons of way to get there. If it’s a fantasy of yours, then how you approach it and play with it is completely up to you. Nobody can tell you how to do it.

Secondly, be patient with people who don’t like age play, or don’t understand it. Like all fetishes, it’s something that people need to chew on for a while. Don’t let people’s objections hold you back, and don’t pay any mind to opinions what might change with the passing of time.
