This was such a nice, sweet, old fashioned romance!! I absolutely loved it. But don't mistake that it didn't have any fun!! It was full of heartfelt and sexy spanking scenes and wonderful sex, too! The sweet story of old friends meeting back up under tough circumstances and beating the odds to make it work! A wonderful story!!
This is a very enjoyable short story of a family orphaned by a car accident and how the older sister (Sage) finds a way to keep them together. Sage wants to take guardianship of her younger siblings, but an unexpected condition in her parents will requires that she either by 30 years of age (she is only 24) or married! Enter Cliff, a neighbor and former “friend” who is more than willing to “act” as her husband to enable Sage to keep both the kids and her farm. Needless to say, Sage needs guidance and discipline as she gets her act together to be mature enough to handle the stresses of parenthood and land ownership. Cliff does a great job of taking her in hand as he leads them through this loving tale. Some of the scenes are predictable, and there could have been more, but there is enough to earn a full 4 star rating. Enjoy.
A cute and romantic marriage of convenience story where Sage (I love her name by the way) overcomes the death her parents and takes on the responsibility of raising her siblings. She finds that she has to grow up fast, and Clint is all too happy to make sure she doesn’t lose the kids. With a few quick lessons over his lap, she becomes a more responsible guardian.
I enjoyed this emotional, yet humorous story about Sage, a young woman who lost both parents and wants desperately to care for her young siblings, and Cliff, her neighbor who wants to help her and falls for her in the process. Sage is understandably in emotional turmoil after the death of her parents and not making the best decisions. Luckily, Cliff is happy to provide the corporal punishment she needs to refocus. The plot was interesting, the characters and their interactions were heartwarming, and the book left me with a smile on my face. Overall a great read you won't want to miss.
4 ½ stars
What a sweet romance. Cliff is a rancher that has always loved Sage. Sage just recently
lost her parents and needs to hold it together for her brother and sister. I liked that Cliff
was so caring and willing to do whatever it took to keep Sage and the kids protected and loved.
There was mild DD when Sage acts out and loses her temper. There are some sexual scenes but not overly graphic. Overall a sweet read.
Marriage of convenience turns to love. This has a good story line and fully thought out characters. An immature woman matures quickly with the help of her alpha husband who uses domestic discipline, hot sex, love and fun spankings to help his wife learn to grow and mature and love. Great quick read.
This is an interesting story that makes you wonder about "What if........". I admire Sage's determination to keep her family together no matter what after the death of her parents. She is very strong willed and stubborn young woman. Cliff is strong, patient and kind.They are thrown together in marriage in order to keep the siblings with them. Sage and Cliff work hard at becoming a partnership. The best part of this story was the "happily ever after "
I loved this awesome story. The characters were well developed including the secondary characters. Sage starts out as an immature girl who has to grow up fast after losing both parents and her young brother and sister need a responsible person to care for them. Neighbor Cliff steps in and so begins the relationship. Lovely romance, hot sex, spanking, great dialogue and a beautiful happy ever after ending.
I loved this book! After losing her parents in an accident Sage, although young, is trying to take over parenting her younger brother and sister. Her neighbor and old time friend Cliff has feelings and wants to take care of not only Sage but Nettie and Bailey. I enjoyed watching this love story develop. It was well written that has a realistic situation along with realistic characters. The author includes a lot of emotions and love, spankings, and wonderful sex scenes. Overall I love this book and highly recommend reading this story! Hope you enjoy as much as I did!!
I loved this. There was plenty of chemistry and sparks between Cliff and Sage, and a loving multi-generational family. Their relationship began from a need for Sage to keep her family together after her parents tragic death and love grew from there in this very sweet romance.
The plot has three siblings grieving over the death of their parents, the reading of the will that leaves Sage shocked and a mountain of debts for the ranch. To keep her siblings, she must marry or wait until she is thirty years old. To save the ranch, she needs someone who can help with the ranch and to start making a profit. Desperation can lead to crazy schemes. Is Clifton the answer to her problems so she can keep her siblings and make something out of the ranch? Will he be willing to help and keep it as an in-name-only relationship? Sometimes meddling older people are wise in their actions and deeds, and maybe this young family will get their happily-ever-after ending. There is a great cast of characters and entertaining interaction. There is plenty of angst and discipline along with tender heartwarming moments and sex scenes.
Very enjoyable, light story about a young woman who is intent on keeping her family together after her parents die. I enjoyed reading Sage and Cliff's story - there was enough details about their past to understand their present. The story moved along well and the secondary characters added a lot to the story. My only complaint is that Sage never seemed to mature. Even near the end of the book, when she should be worried about getting her siblings back, she is preparing to snub her husband and go out drinking. She was just too immature at times. Cliff developed nicely throughout the course of the story and while he was an "in charge" type of man, he was never over-bearing like some male leads can be. Just wish Sage would have shown more growth.
Oh my goodness, this was the BEST book! I loved it!!! I stayed up way to late cause I just couldn't stop reading! Sage and Cliff are neighbors and have known each other a long time. Sage's parents are killed in an automobile accident and she is left with her younger brother and sister. She has bills that she can't pay and is told her brother and sister will be taken away unless she is married. This story was full of lots of witty dialogue, fantastic romance, bare bottom spankings, incredible sex and passionate love. Constance Masters always writes fabulous books! 5 big shining stars!
