But nothing could have prepared Pax for Diamond as their two worlds collide and both of their perfectly ordered and quiet lives combust. Will their undeniable attraction and intense passion be worth the risk of pain and heartache as they shatter their safe lives?

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
When the pain is too much to bear, sometimes all you can do is bury your head in the sand and pretend that that life didn't exist. That's exactly what Diamond Barrett has done for the last four years. It was working well for her until her birthday, when it all went to hell – again.

Diamond and Pax come to an agreement that if she will submit to a public spanking, all will be forgiven and she will have a job at his casino. Not sure if she can handle a spanking, much less a public spanking, she agrees to a private spanking. Both Pax and Diamond find a cathartic release in that first spanking, which leads each to trust the other.

Diamond is a born sub, loves learning to submit to her dom, but her independent streak and mouthy nature keep her bottom warm. Pax is a protector, and he relishes his opportunity to take care of Diamond. He's torn by his need to protect her and her need for independence, trying to strike a balance that would nurture both their needs.

When Pax realizes that his actions have caused this danger to Diamond, he feels guilt that cannot be assuaged. That is, until Diamond makes a return appearance to the club where it all began.

This is a fast moving and fun journey into the world of D/s, most specifically spanking. I haven't read one in a while, and think that the way this story develops is just right.

Diamond is a lovely character; a mix of confident and vivacious, but also damaged by the tragic death of her famous mother. As her life seems to unravel again, it turns out that Pax is the solution to her crippling guilt and sadness. He is a dom who lives his life by rules, and by all accounts, is confused by his reaction to his new, beautiful employee. As we watch the relationship develop, we get a good view of his style of BDSM and what it means for Diamond. I thought the plot twist was well done, and can't wait for the next installment of this series.

Rayanna Jamison is a happily married mother of two in her mid-thirties. She grew up in the PNW, but recently made a big life change and moved to the southwest. Part of that life change included getting back to her first love: writing.

Rayanna has been writing since she was able, and always dreamed of being an author growing up. She never thought she would write spanking romance, but she loves to read it, so why not?

When she is not writing, (which is much too often) Rayanna enjoys spending time with her family and dear friends, cooking, playing games, reading and exploring her new area.

Her favorite things in life besides her husband and kids are good friends, good food, and good wine. Her passions tend to be evident in the stories she writes.
