Corbin’s Bend – A Brush of Violet by Corinne Alexander

High powered business woman, Violet Walker, has long left her artistic days behind. That is until her best friend, Everleigh Harris, invites her to Corbin's Bend for an art festival. What Everleigh doesn't know is that Violet hasn't been able to paint a single brush stroke since turning her back on her submissive desires and spanking needs in college. When she meets charismatic and drop dead gorgeous Charles her world is turned completely upside down. Will Violet, overworked, burnt out, and in denial of her deepest wants and desires, be able to surrender when love knocks on her door?

Charles Robinson, President of the discipline Board in Corbin’s Bend and longtime resident, adores the community he lives in and the freedom it provides for all who live there. Raised in a traditional family; love and discipline are a way of life for him. There’s nothing he wants more than a marriage just like his parents where spanking and romance go hand in hand, even if that means holding out for true love. Is Violet just the kind of woman he’s looking for?

Will Violet risk the life she’s built for herself in blood, sweat, and tears for the undeniable connection she has with Charles, the utter bliss and contentment she feels when she’s over his lap? Can Charles convince Violet she really can have it all? Will this trip be just what she needs to rekindle all that she has lost since joining the corporate world?

Violet was raised to be a strong independent woman; she works hard and never takes a break, until her friend Everleigh asks her to help her with an art festival. When Violet gets to Corbin’s Bend and meets Charles, her world is turned upside down. Things she hasn’t felt in years come back to her and she wants him and what he can offer her but will she be able to give up the life she has worked so hard for? Charles wants Violet but he also wants the lifestyle that Corbin’s Bend has to offer, he just hopes that Violet will too. Another must read from the Corbin’s Bend series, you have to see how this one ends. I just loved Charles and wanted more of him.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
From the time she was a child, Violet's parents have pushed her to be the best in everything, except her art. There wasn't any money in art. So, Violet puts aside her brushes and focuses on the business world.

When her BFF Ever calls her and asks her to come visit, Violet wants to blow her off, but something convinces her to say yes. Ever is planning an art show in Corbin's Bend and is encouraging her to bring her paintings that are sitting in storage.

Once in Corbin's Bend, Violet is amazed at how normal it is. Yes, she's seen a few couples engage in public spankings but everyone seems so happy. Violet and Ever discusses Ever's relationship and how much she needs and enjoys the domestic discipline arrangement she has.

Meeting Charles and getting to know him, re-awakens Violet's deep seated desire to be spanked. Charles is happy to show Violet's how domestic discipline can in and of itself be rewarding.

I really enjoyed this book and look forward to more books in this series.

This has to be one of my favourite Corbin's Bend books so far. It deals with some issues which are very real to so many women – being guilt-ridden about not working hard enough to prove that they can perform as well as men, and losing oneself in the process. Time in CB gives Violet time to realise this, and also the pleasure of Charles to help her remove those deep ingrained feelings. I really enjoyed the dynamics and the respect, as well as the building relationship and discipline.

It was good to catch up with old friends and be reminded that this is a vibrant community. Definitely an excellent addition to the series, thank you Ms. Alexander.
