The Naughty Pine by Sibylla Matilde Blog Tour

The Naughty Pine by Sibylla Matilde Blog Tour

On the fourteenth anniversary of my first divorce, I went to a kink club.

Thirty-three and no clue who I was. What I wanted out of life. I only knew it was passing me by and I was tired.

Tired of surviving the day-to-day.

Tired of trying to forgive myself for two failed marriages.

Tired of being a single mother with no semblance of a social life, of bending over backwards to be a fitting role model for my teenage daughter.

That was, until I stepped foot in The Naughty Pine.

I didn’t plan to participate. I only went to appease the dark corners of my curiosity. To see something wild and taboo and full of life. Something sinful to shock the loneliness clean out of my system.

Don’t know what I expected, but it sure wasn’t him…

M/F Second-Chance Romance
Triggers: BDSM

Darah and her daughter, Madison, are just trying to get through the teen years. Darah is a numbers gal and always has been. But co-parenting with her ex, Jace, is proving more and more difficult. When a co-worker, and kind of her only friend, asks Darah to come to a club with her, Darah thinks to herself, “What could it hurt?” What Darah doesn’t expect is to see her ex, Jace, there too.

Jace knows that he screwed up royally years ago, when Madison was a baby. Leaving was his biggest regret. But how do you go back on something that has defined your relationship?

As Darah and Jace learn whether or not they can trust each other, you get to learn more about their history and you truly start to root for their future. Relationships are complex and these two have more baggage than most. Throw in a teenage daughter and figuring out their roles within their new dynamic, and you get a whole lot of chemistry and love.

This was a fun read and while there were times you wanted to shake both main characters, you’ll learn to love them.

3.5 stars

There are parts of this book which I did really enjoy, and yet I was frustrated at times with too many issues being mentioned repeatedly but not delved into more deeply. Whilst I get that much is obvious to us, and yet not to Darah, I really couldn't accept that in 14 years she had never thought beyond her very limited view. She has a good friend in Lissa, is intelligent enough to have a decent job, and had a second failed marriage where she clearly compared the poor guy unfavourably to Jace all along.

Why does she live in a rented house that is described more or less like a hovel? Jace has always paid his way for their daughter and she is working? I get that it made the difference between their two houses more impressive, but what dad wants his daughter to live like that most of the time? These and other little things bothered me, and stopped me being able to fully engage in the story.

I thought the Naughty Pine evenings were done really well, and the fact that she gained in confidence even though she felt insecure about her figure etc, I think was carefully written. Her fear, her courage, her need to have faith was matched by his patience and his pushing. It felt cruel that he wasn't more open about how different it was with her compared to others as inevitably she would think about it – but it made some of the scenes more intense because of it.

A good read which showed that it is not just the beautiful and wealthy that enjoy getting dressed up on a Saturday evening and being kinky!

This book was just meh for me. I don't read a lot of M/F lately. The blurb interested me, but I couldn't really get into the storyline or the characters. I found myself skimming the book to get to the Naughty Pine nights because those parts held my interest, other than that, this book wasn't my cup of tea.



Author Bio

SIBYLLA MATILDE grew up on the back of a horse exploring in the mountain valleys of Southwest Montana. She attended a two-room schoolhouse 1st through 6th grade where she had same teacher the whole time. At the age of 12, Siby discovered historical romance, devouring the work of Jude Devereaux, Lisa Kleypas, and Karen Robards. She began writing in 2013 with her debut novel, Little Conversations, and self-published ten works over the next three years. She took a few years off to deal with life (it proved very difficult to move on from her Bangin’ Mofos… they were a blast to write), but is back at the keyboard with new steamy stories brewing in her naughty little brain.

Music is her emotional trigger. Growing up with a Wagnarian-opera-loving mother, Sibylla loves music that digs deep into her soul and covers her with goosebumps. The soundtrack to her life includes different genres and generations, but her favorites include Thirty Seconds to Mars (she’s a bit obsessive about Jared Leto, actually), Kings of Leon, The Killers, My Chemical Romance, and many other artists and bands. Her inspiration playlists on Spotify truly drive her writing, and she loves to share her eclectic taste with anyone who will listen.

Siby strives to write books that make the reader bask in the sweet glow of new love, burn hot with a passionate intensity, and day drink from gut-wrenching heartache. Her characters are not world-famous rock stars or billionaires, rather every-day small-town people experiencing their own extraordinary romantic adventures in the Rocky Mountains she calls home. Siby loves to hear from fans.
