★★★★★ Meredith O’Reilly @ Amazon.com “Great and Romantic Story!” on July 17, 2015
Crystal has a secret. She desires to have a man be in control inside the bedroom and outside of it. She wants to be able to rely on someone to be there for her and catch her if she falls. There’s only one problem. Crystal doesn’t want to face her secret because she thinks that it’s wrong. Thankfully, her best friend, Ivy knows exactly how to help Crystal and takes her to visit Cobalt Canyon where the handsome Donaven lives. Once there, Donaven gets Crystal’s secret out of her and shows her just how wonderful a BDSM relationship can be. Now it’s up to Crystal to decide if she can accept what she’s always wanted or run from it because she’s afraid that it’s too good to be true.
This was such a great story! I adored Donaven! He was so patient with Crystal as she came to terms that it’s okay if she wanted to be spanked or have him in control in the bedroom. He was always there to help and never pressured Crystal to submit to him. He was a really caring guy.
At the beginning, I was not crazy about Crystal because she was so against BDSM. She came off as very rude towards anyone who liked it. But, once she came around and saw that a husband giving his wife a consensual spanking is not the same thing as abuse, she turned out to be a good person. It was interesting to see how she processed everything that she learned about the lifestyle. She still struggled with a few things that she found out, but with Donaven’s help, she was able to accept them more easily.
Another thing that I really enjoyed was how Ms. Parks incorporated so many different types of kinks in to this story. Normally a story has one kink in it, maybe two. With this story, there were several. Each couple had their own kink from age play to F/m.Read more ›

★★★★★ Amazon Customer @ Amazon.com “You had me at ruggedly gorgeous owner… oh my!” on July 19, 2015
You had me at ruggedly gorgeous owner, then put me over the top with remote mountain retreat, oh my! Add in the BDSM fun and I was a goner. If you want to be swept away by this gorgeous, dominant man who wants only to lavish attention on you (both good and even better) by day and by night, then this book is for you. It seems Melody Parks put her all into creating this wonderfully kinky world away from the crowded cities where we could wallow in our most delicious naughty fantasies. Crystal takes a bit of convincing at first, mired in social mores and what she’s seen in her life’s work and gets a bit confused. Donaven perseveres, have no fear, as he shows her love and delves into her untapped submissiveness. I loved it and want more. Please say there will be more!
★★★★★ SH @ Amazon.com “Hot and spicy!!” on July 19, 2015
Oh my, did I love this book!! The plot is fantastic and tells an incredibly sweet romantic story with some spicy BDSM that is not over the top. I loved everything about it and was so hoping Crystal was going to get brave enough to finally go after what she has always yearned for. She certainly gets lucky when her best friend, Ivy introduces her to Donaven. Whew, can you spell HOT?! No spoilers here but if you miss this you will regret it. I received this book from Stormy Night Publications as an Advanced Reader Copy.
