I enjoyed this emotional and sweet domestic discipline story that covers two couples. Even though this is a series and this is book two, it reads very well as a standalone. Misty Malone writes stories with heart to them, corrective discipline, never over-the-top and with intimacy implied only. The characters are delightful, open and honest with dominant men and feisty women that they love and are not afraid of taking-in-hand and over-the-knee. The plot keeps the pages turning as the wedding nears for Wyatt and Kayla and some of the unforeseen difficulties and hurdles they will have to cross. Bo and Alicia are best friends with them and help with solutions. I look forward to more stories in this wonderful series.
It was a great read and the couples have a great friendship. I got in to the Christmas spirit after reading. Hope to read more about these couples.
This is a continuation of Life At The Ranch which was a sweet romance. There was a lot going on and yet they managed to get everything done. This was an amazing read and I throughly enjoyed.
Kayla and Alicia are best friends. Kayla is engaged to Wyatt, a rancher and Alicia is married to Bo, Wyatts foreman. Between combining two branches, a wedding and a growing business, the two women get stressed and their men know how to distress them. A good story on working things out together giving to others.
This book was a cute fast read. Ms Malone did repeat a lot in the first half of the book, not so much towards the end. I liked all the characters. There were two main couples, one couple was married and the other couple were planning their wedding throughout the book. It had 4 or 5 spankings in the story, all were deserved and none were to harsh. I have read almost all Ms Malone's books and they are all good!
Christmas At The Ranch is a sweet inspirational story that shows true friendship between couples. Each couple shows the true meaning of Christmas and helping others while still exploring their love for each other. While the ladies overdue and stress out at the holidays the men are strong influences in their wives lives. They keep their stress and attitudes in line with well deserved spankings given with love. This was a wonderful story to read and I recommend it to others.
I really liked the wholesome quality of this story. My preference is for "showing not telling" of scenes. Even so, the story is charming and well worth the read.
A very sweet story of two best friends as they journey through many changes at Christmas time. The book was filled with sweet Christmas giving, love of friends, their loving men, and loving discipline when it was needed. The stress of new business ventures, work changes, wedding plans, and new marriages led to plenty of opportunities for the husbands to step in and offer their help. I always appreciate this author's ability to tell a great story with realistic characters without sex or language.
