Savannah and Eric are the perfect couple; young and wildly in love. Their first year of a Christian domestic discipline marriage is a huge learning experience for both of them. Savi is suddenly no longer a carefree, pampered child. She is a woman. A wife. She continues her studies. In addition, she must also manage an entire household on her own - everything from cooking dinner, to doing laundry. And she finds even the simplest of tasks overwhelming.
Eric, too, is learning to master his new role as husband and disciplinarian. Like his young bride, he continues his own work, but has also assumed another job - managing Savi - which proves to be more a challenge than he expects.
Come along with Eric and Savi as they experience the ups and downs, the love, tears and laughter that the first year of marriage brings. Can they make it work, or will the demands of this new life get the better of the young newlyweds?
This is the sequel to Taming the Preacher’s Daughter. I enjoyed that story as it was about a young girl finding her place in her world. This is the story of Savi and Eric’s first year of marriage. I can't get past the immaturity that Savi and Eric show. First, Eric has no real job. He goes from one to another temp job, trying to make enough for the two of them to live on. Meanwhile, Savi is taking classes online. But, Savi doesn't know how to be a wife and Eric doesn't know how to be a husband. Savi has never learned how to keep house as no one has taught her. She doesn't ask for help and Eric just asks her to clean, cook and do laundry without realizing she has no idea how. Eventually they do work things out, but I kept thinking, why did her parents allow the marriage? You can't live on love. I look forward to a sequel, because I really want to know how their marriage works out. I give this 3 stars.
Samantha (Savi) is a newlywed in a Christian Domestic Discipline marriage with Eric. While Savi wants to uphold her half of the marriage commitment, she simply doesn’t know how to maintain a household. The spanking received when caught in a nest of lies alone is not sufficient to direct her into a responsible wife. Then, young couple seeks the help of their church community.
I had not read the first book about this couple, yet this is easily a standalone read. The story of Savi and Eric is one of a young couple as they navigate the life-changes as their relationship moves from dating to being married. It is a sweet romance with a taste of loving discipline. I cut one star because the story is a little abrupt; it began too quickly (perhaps because I had not read the first one) and it ended too abruptly. Also, the story seemed to assume that the reader was familiar with the CDD relationship and did not explore this much.
I enjoyed revisiting Eric and Savi from the first book, Taming The Preacher's Daughter. They are now married and dealing with the adjustments of newlyweds. A serious problem is Savi was babied so much growing up, that she doesn't know how to keep a house, cook, or even pick up after herself. In reality, her family did her no favors. Savi is caught in multiple lies, and Eric is beside himself. How she reacts to punishment is confusing to her and he isn't sure she takes it serious. These two have a long ways to go in order to have a happy home. They have agreed prior to marriage to maintain a Christian Domestic Discipline marriage. Savi needs to learn how to be a productive and responsible adult which includes being submissive with love and respect for Eric. It's a growing and learning experience for both of them. This book can read as a standalone. It is a clean CDD story with no sex scenes.
This was a very sweet story of a young couple. Savi is a very spoiled but basically sweet young wife who never had to life a finger and doesn't know how to cook and clean. Some of the situations are very funny, the young couple use domestic discipline to help them in their relationship.
