This started out nice with Max rescuing a drunk Ginny; however, he then decides he wants a relationship with her and won't let her leave. He tries to show her how good a relationship they could have, but even though she enjoys their time together, it is time spent together because he won't allow her to leave. Then he disciplines her. Although that discipline leaves her with mixed feelings, she cannot entrust herself in a relationship with Max when it is forced. She finally escapes and the story unfolds as they each decide if a relationship is possible between them. He pursues her and there is a happy ending, but the beginning is a little off-putting. This author is new to me and I like some parts of the story very much. I look forward to the next release by Ms. Eckols.
This is the story of dominant Max and independent Ginny. At first you think Max is an asshole for not letting Ginny leave but the author did a good job and end up delivering a hot plot.
This is a short, enjoyable and fast paced story about two very likable people who meet under unusual circumstances, and fall into lust and love quite quickly. Max is a very successful rancher, while Ginny understands ranching and is a terrific organizer. Max is a strong believer in domestic discipline, and it takes Ginny time to adjust to it – but when she does, she finds she likes it also. After some uncertainty, the two of them embark on a working relationship that evolves into a passionate affair and the development of love between the two of them.
Did not like how it began but eventually became about love and the formation of a strong relationship between a independent strong willed woman and a dominant alpha male. Spanking for erotic sexual scenes, and punishment insue.
I understand protecting her from herself and spanking her for her attitude the next morning, but Max really overstepped by not allowing Emmy to leave. He had to work harder to find her after than if he would have let everything progress normally. It seemed like all Max focused on was getting what he wanted, Emmy's feelings be damned.
Overall I enjoyed the story. It was entertaining and there's plenty of spark and attraction between Max and Ginny. I am not sure I approve of his methods, however. He also had no right to correct her when they were not an item. If she hadn't fallen for him in return it would have been a possible kidnapping charge and a definite restraining order for him! Really she never stood a chance. Just as well she fell for him. Ginny was a sensible hard working well behaved girl and once Max came to his senses he was a good catch.
I found this story to be a little disturbing. I almost put it down because Max (the HOH) was extremely dominant and at the beginning, refused to let Emmy (Ginny) leave. As the story progresses, they get to know each other and love blooms but I truly thought there could have been another way to get to the promised land.
I will admit I had mixed emotions reading this story. The beginning had me a bit concerned when he refused to let her leave, she did not have her phone and felt trapped. They had a volatile relationship that was hot and cold. In the end, it all turned out for the good, the ride getting there was very rocky with lots of bumps and scrapes.
Very cute book that is an easy and fun read! I loved the author’s development of the two main characters, Emmy (Ginny) and Max. Emmy is a woman that has needed to be independent, confident and a leader due to her family circumstances. Max is very dominant man who has feelings of gold and holds the belief that a man should be head of his household. This is the story of how the two meet and learn to compromise to make their relationship last and flourish. This story contains several spanking scenes for those of us interested in that and best of all - lots of love.
I enjoyed reading this story. I loved Ginnie but I found Max to be way over the top. He held her against her will and then when she ran at the first chance she got he found her and disciplined her. He was too focused on what he wanted rather on her. Saying all that it is a great read. The characters are well written and the scenery is vivid and the sex hot! Hot! It is well worth the read. I have to highly recommend it.
I must admit that I was a little uncomfortable with the initial premise of a kidnapped/captive woman being held against her will and having to submit to a dominant male. However, as the story progressed the narrative (in third person format) really delved deep into the psyche of both Ginnie Jacobson and Max Devonshire, and before long you really got to know each of them personally and could not help but like/love both of them. The spankings are real, both punishment and erotic, and the after sex felt both realistic and fulfilling. An excellent read with a great “ending/beginning”. I really look forward to this author continuing with the life/love story of this couple. Highly recommended, Five Stars.
