Find it on Audible
I’m guessing the book is on Amazon too, but I’m not linking that shit. Go find it if you want it.
That is exactly how I feel about this book. I like fantasy fairytale books. I like BDSM books. Except for “daddy” books, everything I’ve read, I’ve like at least 1 book in that subgenre. But for all that, I’m into consensual books.
Melanie agreed to live with Xavier for a year and have his baby to help out her asshole dad. And right off the bat, an asshole man. Ha!
Xavier was a douche from the word go. Not letting her eat at the table. She had to kneel beside him and eat from his hand. She ended up in a dog pen (pig sty) * because she wasn’t pleasing him. And he was so fucking controlling. Things like he wouldn’t let her change her own tampon. I mean, no. And it wasn’t just you’re normal/safe BDSM Sub situation. She was his unwilling pet, which she did not sign up for, with no safe word, and he wanted to bellow about and scream and hollar about trust.
He treated his horses better than he treated her. There was nothing that was going to make me like Xavier, and nothing that was going to make me not be pissed at Melanie, who should have said “fuck the father” and gotten her happy ass out of there…..
If you’re into that sort of thing, more power to you. You’ll really like this book. This is the first one I’ve read of Stasia, and I’ll try another one.
Parts of the narration got on my nerves, as if I had liked the book, it would have gotten on my nerves that there was no male voice. Xavier is a strong douche, and really requires a male voice to be him.
**It could have been either a dog pen or a pig sty situation. It has been about 6 weeks since I finished listening to the book, and it was several months of listening because I could only take so much at a time. It was a fenced in area outside.
I wasn’t sure I was even gonna review this. That is why it has been so long since I listened. But, what would be the point of reviewing if I only said the good stuff and none of the bad? I don’t know…. I’m not good at the idea of hurting someone’s feelings. I am not an author, and trying to walk in and tell an author that I don’t like what they’ve written doesn’t set well with me. But, on the other hand, having a bunch of reviews that only tell what I liked doesn’t show that there is stuff out there that I don’t like. That I don’t get. That isn’t for me. Never listen to someone who says they like everything. They are lying.
But, lets take a minute to check out the cover. It is hot!
