It Is Hard to Start Over at This Age
A story about two middle-aged adults, a widow and a widower with a son, learning how to establish a new loving relationship once again. They struggle with what they both want and need. There was a bit more narrative than I like explaining things where I would have preferred they showed what is happening or have them tell each other about the incident, instead of all the narrative.
When there is an accident, she doesn't demand to leave him with it, whine about it taking too long, or hollow she is bored. She waited patiently right beside him every inch of the way until they were able to take his son home.
She met his mother-in-law and father-in-law and even stayed with them while waiting for their grandson to get out of the hospital.
Great story and I love that it is about a middle-aged couple starting over with old fashioned ideas along the way.
A genuine story about the budding relationship between Kent, a 50 yr old widower, and Jo (also a widow). Both Jo and Kent lived in a head of household family with their previous spouses and missed that dynamic relationship. The novel narrates how they each examine their thoughts and feelings before, at the end, they clearly acknowledge to each other their intent to build an HOH relationship. The novel culminates in their first discipline scene.
Both Jo and Kent have been widowed and both are missing their domestic discipline marriages. Lucky for them they meet! There were aspects of the story I enjoyed. I loved that Kent's in laws also were dd. Kent and Jo were likable characters, but I wish they would have discussed domestic discipline earlier in the relationship and therefore earlier in the book. I thought it strange that the "Sunday School teacher" was sleeping with her boyfriend after a few dates.
It was a short tale of two widowers who find love again. Both had DD relationships with their previous spouse, and want to continue it. It was sweet. There are not a lot of books that talk about finding love
in middle age. The story was a mild DD, nothing severe. I liked that both Jo and Kent were honest and loving and they had an easy dialogue. I was surprised at Jo’s openness about her needs. It was a sweet read.
A very light, short story about an older couple looking for love the second time around. I enjoyed the witty dialogue between Jo and Kent. I also liked that the author portrayed an older couple, instead of the early twenties women that are often depicted in this genre. There was some decent character development, but I felt there could have been more. So much of the story is internal dialogue of the couple, and not much real "getting to know each other" at the beginning of the story. I also was hoping for more DD scenes and seeing how Jo reacted to it. There was only one scene at the very end, and the reason for that discipline was rather contrived. 3 stars for me - could have been longer and more detailed.
It's unusual to find a spanking story that doesn't feature people at the younger end of the age bracket, but this story of a new relationship between 2 middle aged people is not only unique but a very enjoyable and fun read. Apart from the relationship building side of the story, I just loved the light-heartedness to the story. Not that things aren't serious, but just that you can be light-hearted while at the same time taking something seriously. At times it made me laugh out loud. This was a very fun read that I would have enjoyed reading more of.
This is a well written short story about a new couple. They are both widowers. They both had DD relationships in their past marriages. They are both looking for a new relationship and are feeling their way with the added concern that DD will be a part of their new union. Enjoyable. read. I would have given it 5 stars if it had been a longer story.
This is a fun relaxing read. You don't get many romance stories with more mature lead characters. This one fits the bill. Our hero likes to spank and our heroine likes to be spanked so everyone is happy, including the reader. Lots of fun
The plot of the story is a sweet romance with two middle-aged adults, both who loved and lost their mates and both who believe in a domestic discipline lifestyle. How two people get along in good times can be much different than when there is a personal crisis. Jo and Kent are confronted with a crisis and face it head on together. I loved the interaction between the characters, their open and honest dialog and relationship. “How boring is perfect? I like a little mess and spice in my life. How about you?”
