★★★★★ Cara Bristol @ Amazon.com “A classic spanking romance with some unique coaching” on December 4, 2015
After an injury and some poor decisions, Wren Montgomery becomes the bad girl of gymnastics everyone avoids. Fighting for a comeback, she signs on with the one coach she’d like to avoid—Jonathan Reilly, the man she once fell in love with, the man who once spanked her and then abandoned her by leaving the team just when she needed him most.
Fearing he’d become a distraction rather than a help, Jonathan had left the team. But this time he vows to do whatever it takes to see that Wren rockets to top—even if it means once again taking over his lap (or the gymnastics equipment) for some attention-getting, bottom-warming spankings.
Wren’s Redemption is what I would call a “classic” spanking romance – a true romance about a hero who spanks the heroine out of a sincere effort to help her. Jonathan loves and respects her. Although spanking her turns him on, he doesn’t objectify her and use her for his own selfish pleasures (a theme that’s becoming increasingly common in spanking romance). The sports setting works well and author Katherine Deane writes knowledgeably about gymnastics in a way that makes it real. The setting isn’t just slapped on, it’s an integrated part of the story. The writing is smooth and flows nicely.
If you’re looking for an erotic romance with spankings and a story, Wren’s Redemption would be a good choice.

★★★★★ Nichols Reviews @ Amazon.com “Wren’s Redemption” on December 5, 2015
Wren’s Redemption reminds me of the stories I read when I first started reviewing books. It is a pure of heart romance about a young woman’s fall from grace and the man that can save her. With raw emotions and a good spanking or two Deane brings us back to the core of what Spanking Romance is.
Wren has fallen from grace. After losing the one man who brought her together she has fallen from grace. She hasn’t felt fully into her gymnastics and she knows that she must do something to muster her career or she’ll fall off like many others have before her.
Jonathan watched her fall and it destroyed him. Coming back into her life to train her he hopes to not only see her career return but also her heart. With a stern hand a soft heart Jonathan has nothing to lose.
Deane never disappoints with her writing but this one is sure to be my favorite of hers. In such a simple story we are moved in ways we haven’t been in a long time.
★★★★★ Corinne @ Amazon.com “Hit Every Single Spanko Button I Have!” on December 8, 2015
Wren’s Redemption hit it on all levels for me! I laughed, I cried, I celebrated, and I cheered the heroine on all the way through.
Wren is the type of heroine that you get right from the start, she pulls on your heart strings, and you can’t help but root for her. Boy does that girl have spunk, and let’s not forget about grit!!
Jonathan is the hunky hero who knows how to steam up a scene! I loved how he was there for Wren at every turn for every need. Even the ones she didn’t know she had!!
The sex scenes were off the chart sexy!! And let me tell you this book hit every single spanko button that I have! Whew! HOT, HOT, HOT, HOT!! Wren’s Redemption not only goes down as my favorite book of the year, but one of my favorite books of ALL TIME!!
As they say at gymnastics meets:
Deane, Katherine…..FIVE STARS!!
★★★★★ Romazing Reader @ Amazon.com “Spanking Hot Superman!” on December 8, 2015
Whoa baby! Now this is a nicely naughty story with lots and lots of sexy spankings! I Loved it! It made me blush and tingly all over! So erotically edgy and so incredibly heart melting! Wren and Jonathan are magic together! I adored the emotional ups and downs, all the doubts and fears and especially the explosive forbidden love between the rebel gymnast and the kinky coach. Such an engaging, daring and bold read with lots of heart and angst that’s so creative and original! Wren, a stubborn purple-haired gymnast, fallen from grace, is trying to redeem her image, her career and her broken heart, but in all the wrong ways. Her new coach and her perfectly imperfect superman, Jonathan has decided to take hold of the reins in Wren’s life in every way, to build her back up to the Olympic star he knows she truly is deep inside. Of course, it’s with lots and lots of mind-blowing red-hot spankings and Jonathan’s special brand of charismatic kinky dominance. I’ll never forget that amazing use of Ben Wa Balls! Wow! A wonderfully romantic story in every way with lots a sweet erotic kink and heated loving passion!! I smiled, I laughed, I held my breath and cheered …I even shed a few tears of joy! The really great ending nailed a perfect ten! My very first book by this author and definitely not my last! It’s This Spanking Lover’s Dream Read!!
★★★★★ Mark SR Sterling @ Amazon.com “Olympic Romance” on December 7, 2015
After a fall from both the parallel bars and the media’s good graces, Wren Montgomery spent three years in a spiral of self-destruction. When she decides to return to competition, the bad girl of gymnastics turns to her former coach. Jonathan Reilly, or Superman as Wren has come to think of him, has his own tainted past as a coach. However, he brings a unique approach to training discipline – spankings – to Wren workout. As the two work though their past failings, they discover a future together. Their rocky path includes spankings and some very clever games. And, just when will Coach Jonathan make room in his bed for the little rebel with the purple hair?
The characters are well developed and the scenarios artistically plotted. This is both a dramatic romance, and a fun read (there are some really cute scenes).
I received a free copy as part of a pre-publication promotion.
★★★★★ Summer Graystone @ Amazon.com “Wonderful Beautiful Story!!” on December 6, 2015
First of all let me say that Wren’s Redemption is a beautiful story about real feelings and real love. Did I mention there are some yummy spankings in there too? The author really knows how to write a good girl spanking! Then again, he spanks her to make her a better person and that’s the best kind of spankings! Have I mentioned that I really liked this story? I loved how their relationship grew from something strangely forbidden into something incredible. I loved the HEA and found myself crying throughout their journey. I think everyone should read this book!
★★★★★ SouthernRaven @ Amazon.com “This is a beautiful story about overcoming your own adversity and finding trust …” on December 6, 2015
Wren Montgomery is a world leading gymnast although she has taken quite a tumble from the community. She had a bit of a wild streak and is working hard to make it back to competitive level. Then she finds out her new trainer will be the very man who put her across his knee for a little correction. Wren soon finds out Jonathan adds a little extra to their routines! This is a beautiful story about overcoming your own adversity and finding trust and love. I would absolutely recommend it to everyone! 5 stars!!!
★★★★★ SH @ Amazon.com “Loved it!” on December 8, 2015
I really enjoyed this book! Wren was such a strong woman, it was a joy to see her overcome her fears and succeed. Jonathan knew what he wanted, Wren, but was afraid to just go for it due to being hurt before by another. Finally, I wanted to shake him lol, he pulled himself up and went for it. Together they are fantastic! Loved it! I received this book from Stormy Night Publications as an Advanced Reader Copy.
★★★★★ Amazon Customer @ Amazon.com “She’s a sassy bad girl with a heart of gold” on December 8, 2015
You can’t help loving Wren from the start in this book. She’s a sassy bad girl with a heart of gold.
Everyone falls from grace at one point or another, it’s how we deal with the fall, and how we rise up (or who we allow us to help us) that rounds us into who we are.
A tale of love, loss, and triumph. Another great book by Katherine Deane.
