Spanking Stories Book Club: Her Old Fashioned Doctor by Sue Lyndonn

Take a break from Christmas shopping to discuss some good old fashioned spankings and naughty medical play. Thanks for stopping by. 

Tara Finnegan is here to lead the discussion of Sue Lyndon's Her Old-Fashioned Doctor By Sue Lyndon
#1.  The start of Her Old-Fashioned Doctor saw Melissa walk in on her fiancé while he was entertaining prostitutes in her home. Wisely (I thought) she got in her car, and drove right on out of town. Her journey was aimless but opened a whole new life to her. Can you ever imagine embarking on an aimless journey like that, either to escape what was left behind or just for the adventure of it? If so, where do you think you would like to head for first?
#2.  Initially, Melissa had pretty much put her life on hold, pandering to her parents’ and fiancé’s views on what she should do with her life (which was basically to be groomed into the perfect society wife, not thinking of her own career.) This pigeonholing for women was certainly a feature of life for many years. Do you feel it is still a feature nowadays, and if so how widespread do you think it?   
#3.  Even from the get go, Melissa and John’s flirtation makes references to woodsheds, and switches and it’s obvious that they both have a common interest in D/s. John cottons on to her submissive desires very quickly, and uses that to encourage her to have a medical exam he feels she really needs. I found it really hot that he could switch her on like that, just with words, teasing her and have her comply, and I honestly forgot about the doctor/patient issue, or whether he might be overstepping any grounds! How did that make you as the reader feel? Can you switch off the normal rules of society and ethics while reading a contemporary erotic romance and get into the moment?
#4.  John was one of my favourite type of dominants – a  great mix of playful alpha, using Melissa’s own desires to create hot but almost playful scenarios, but then when the time warranted, he was more than ready to deliver as the strict Dom. Do you prefer strict, playful or a mix in your fictional Doms?

Blurb:
After she catches her fiancé cheating on her, Melissa packs a suitcase and sets out on a road trip to give herself some time to recover. But things take an unexpected turn when she rear-ends Dr. John Holden’s truck in a tiny rural town and he responds by inviting her for an impromptu dinner date. 

The handsome medic’s charm and take-charge manner—not to mention his willingness to spank her bare bottom if he feels it necessary—all combine to set Melissa’s heart beating faster than it has in a long time. Almost before she knows it, Melissa finds herself falling deeply in love with the old-fashioned doctor, even though she’s only known him for a couple of days. But is her rapidly growing crush on John merely a rebound fling, or can his hold on her heart last forever? 

Publisher’s Note: Her Old-Fashioned Doctor is an erotic romance novel that includes spankings, sexual scenes, medical play, anal play, elements of BDSM, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book. This book is also available as part of a five-book collection entitled What the Doctor Ordered.

Thanks so much for joining in the discussion.

Spanking Stories Book Club: What The Doctor Ordered by Natasha Knight.

Please Welcome Trent Evans who is here to discuss Amy's Strict Doctor by Natasha Knight, part of the What The Doctor Ordered boxed set. 



Hello Everyone! This week, I have the honor and privilege of leading the Boob Club discussion for Natasha Knight’s new medical BDSM release, Amy’s Strict Doctor. I’ve been a fan of Natasha’s for years, and I think she always writes a hot book. However, with this one? I think she’s outdone herself here with the hotness. DAYUM. Okay, fan boi eruption over.

Now to the discussion. I’ve got a few questions below regarding the book, but one of the things I wanted to say here was that though this book is medical BDSM (and wow, it’s goodJ), it’s a lot more, too. There is plenty of spanking and corporal punishment, Domestic Discipline, absolutely white-hot D/s dynamics, and a warm, endearing relationship between the heroine Amy, and her loving, yet stern husband, Dr. Cade Hollister.
So, if some of you readers out there might feeling ambivalent about a medical BDSM theme, I hope you’ll still give this one a try, as it’s got more for you than just medical BDSM.
Now, on to the questions:

1. Strict Doms –I love them (obviously), and Natasha’s Doms are often the take-no-bullshit variety – which is one of the many reasons I love her work. In Amy’s Strict Doctor though, Cade is probably one of the strictest Doms I’ve seen from Natasha yet. I loved him! Perhaps it’s the fact that he’s a doctor – and as such he’s someone used to giving orders that must be obeyed – that somehow distills and amplifies the Dom personality type? I don’t know, but damn, it worked in this bookJ
For you as readers though, at what point does a Dom become too strict? Is there some sort of line for you that dare not be crossed? A specific act? Or is it more of a general feel, the emotions that the depiction of the Dom stirs within you? (Feel free to add some examples – makes for some good book recs!)

2. In the book, Cade uses both positive and negative reinforcement to spur Amy to finish her schooling and follow the directions/instructions of her tutor. I thought it introduced good tension (of both the dramatic and sexual varieties) – and created plenty of opportunities to punish his wayward wife.
What about you? Do you like the idea of the Dom using punishment in such a way, a means to compel the heroine to act of behave in certain ways? Or is that a little too controlling for comfort?

3. Cade is significantly older than his wife, and personally, I LOVE stories where the hero is significantly older (as long as said heroine is of age, of course). For some reason that age differential not only adds a certain sexual je ne sais quoi, but it also is usually chock full of built in conflict due to different maturity and life experience levels.
Do you like that sort of differential? If so, why? If not, tell us what bothers you about it. Are there any other types of age differences that you prefer (or avoid)?
4. In the book, Amy’s tutor, professor Jonathan Brown, plays an interesting role in the story (no spoilers). I really enjoyed the dynamic Natasha set up, where Amy almost had (in effect) two Doms watching over her, and making her tow the line – or else. The fact that Amy and Cade were married, and that Cade not only approved but encouraged such a dynamic made this even more enjoyable to me as a reader.
This brings to mind a question I have regarding stories where a married couple is the focus. Sometimes readers can be very, very specific about what they will allow and what they won’t in these types of stories. When the protagonists involved are married, do you enjoy the addition of another male character to the dynamic in a fully consensual context (and no, I am not saying this happens in the story – remember, no spoilers!), whether it’s simple additional sexual tension all the way up through disciplining (and more) the heroine?
I love it – even if the book isn’t a ménage – as It adds so much to the sexual heat of a story. Add in the D/s, medical, or Domestic Discipline aspects and it’s off the charts hot. What do you think?


Celeste, thank you again for letting me blabber on your blog today;) And HUGE thanks to Natasha Knight, Casey McKay, Tara Finnegan, Sue Lyndon, and Stormy Knight Publications for allowing me to be a part of this awesome box setJ

Spanking Stories Book Club: The Right Treatment by Tara Finnegan

Casey McKay is here today to lead the discussion of The Right Treatment by Tara Finnegan from What the Doctor Ordered, a collection of medical BDSM books. Ooooo so naughty. 


Thank you so much for hosting us these few weeks, Celeste! I had so much fun being a part of the box set What the Doctor Ordered with my fellow authors and now I am having a ton of fun discussing each book!

If you are stopping by for Spanking Stories Book Club I hope you had time to read Tara Finnegan's awesome book from the box set, it's called The Right Treatment:

Things have changed quite a bit in the years since Aoife Devine last saw Matt McDaid, her childhood crush. Working as a doctor on the emergency ward has hardened him, and parties, alcohol, and one-night-stands have taken their toll on her. But when a bad batch of ecstasy sends Aoife to the hospital, she finds herself with no choice but to accept Matt’s help, even if that means obeying his rules. Matt proves fully prepared to back up his orders with a sound spanking, and Aoife soon learns that cooperating with his treatments is not optional, no matter how humiliating they may be for her.

If you've not had a chance to read it yet, you can still join in the conversation! But I hope you also take the time to read this hot and sexy book!

1. In the story Matt and Aoife know each other from years prior. Do you think this element of the story made the characters interact differently with each other than if Matt had just met Aoife for the first time in the hospital?
In general, does it add a layer to any story to have the characters already have a common history, or some sort of relationship, rather than just meeting and getting to know each other at the start of the story?

2. Matt ends up delivering a 'tough love' approach to Aoife's addiction and at times ends up seeming cold when he delivers some of her punishments. Personally, I liked that Matt was a flawed character and we learn what motivates his treatment of Aoife. But do you find that she forgave him too quickly? Or accepted his treatment too willingly?
What is your take on a hero with a flaw? Or would you rather they be the embodiment of perfection?

3. As in many of Tara Finnegan's books The Right Treatment touches on some heavy topics and dramatic scenes. In my opinion she balances this out with some lighthearted moments and quick witted humor.
What's your opinion on the presence of drama in a romance novel? Do you think it has a place or would you rather a simpler storyline?

Thank you again, Celeste and I look forward to discussing this book with everyone!

Spanking Stories Book Club The Doctor and The Naughty Girl by Trent Evans

Please welcome Natasha Knight for this week's discussion of The Doctor and the Naughty Girl by Trent Evans, which is part of the What The Doctor Ordered Collection. We'll be talking about the books in this hot medical BDSM set for the rest of the year. Yum! 



Hi Celeste, thank you so much for hosting Casey, Trent, Sue, Tara and I in the coming weeks with our book collection, What the Doctor Ordered. I know it's holiday time so it's likely busy for everyone but hey, what better way to take a break from all the stresses than by chatting about naughty things with like-minded friends?? ;) Today I'm hosting a discussion on Trent's book, The Doctor and the Naughty Girl. It's a typical Trent Evans book: hot hot hot spanking/sex scenes, a beautiful (yet troubled) love story to go with it and in this case, some medical play to round things off.

My questions to readers are these:

1. Medical play - what do you think? Is it a new to you? Do you find it hotter than you expected to or less so? What is it about medical that appeals (if it does)? For me, if I had to choose one thing, it would be the humiliation factor. It's there in all spanking romance. I mean, let's face it, spankings as an adult ARE embarrassing but (at least for me) that humiliation also is a big part of what gets me kind of hot and bothered. TMI, apologies, but please feel free to share your own bit of TMI!! I think we all kind of like it.

2. So, Amity…dear, sweet, begging for a spanking Amity. I have to say, I liked her, but wanted to smack her upside the head at times. She seemed set on making poor choices and setting herself up to fail. And Dr. McKendrick, well, what I loved about him
was that he was absolutely uncompromising once he decided how he would deal with his wayward receptionist. How did you feel about their relationship and Dane's discipline of Amity? Do you think it crossed a line because he was her boss?

3. I have this idea that being around someone, you can kind of tell if he/she is kinky or dominant. I’m not sure why I think this but I just do and wonder if it's subconscious (or wishful thinking) on my part. Throughout the story, Amity is unnerved by Nurse Cathy. Do you think she subconsciously knew Cathy was a Domme and was reacting naturally given her submissive nature?


The Doctor and the Naughty Girl by Trent Evans (Blurb)

Dr. Dane McKendrick is tired of his twenty-four-year-old receptionist, Amity Derrington, failing to take her job seriously. Amity is beautiful and smart, but the rich, spoiled girl clearly needs a firm hand, and when she shows up late for work and hung over yet again, Dane lets her know that from now on her behavior will have consequences. It isn’t long before Amity puts Dane’s warning to the test, and she soon ends up over his knee for a long, hard, bare-bottom spanking. Worse still, when Dane learns the extent to which she has neglected her annual check-ups, Amity quickly finds herself receiving the most intimate, embarrassing exam of her life.

Spanking Stories Book Club: The Coach's Discipline by Katherine Deane

Thank you to Adaline Raine for hosting this week's discussion. 

Thanks so much to Celeste Jones for letting me host the discussion on today's book, The Coach's Discipline by Katherine Deane!

There were so many amazing scenes to pick questions from so please feel free to ask and share your own.

There is an amazing spot where Nick takes Claire and blindfolds her to go on a sense walk. This is incredibly hot even though there isn't any discipline or sexual adventures it's Claire trusting him enough to keep her safe and let each of her five senses really build. There is a lot of yummy tension but the descriptions drew me in so completely that I felt like I was walking right beside the two of them in the woods.

Have you ever done something similar? It could be sensory type of play like being blind folded and having your partner try different textures on you or it could be to build one of your lesser used senses.

Think back for a moment. What does fresh cut grass remind you of? Could it be when you used to watch someone mow your lawn and remember the freedom of letting the soft strands tickle your bare feet when you ran outside later?  Or maybe you used to play softball and the field always smelled that way.

 Senses are incredible and when each one is tested and flexed like a muscle they get stronger. Our muscle memory is amazing and can bring us back to good memories as well as negative ones. Please share!

One reason I connected so deeply with both characters involved how much Nick built up Claire. There is a powerful scene where he tells her firmly that she is not her mother. Claire is trying to get him to spank her and instead they have a very tender moment. Many stories that I enjoy have the heroine struggling with something from her past. Does this help you relate more to characters or does his/her back story and past matter?

To end on a fun note tell me what type of coach you would love to hold you accountable the way that Nick holds Claire. For me I need a personal trainer/nutritionist. If I had one as dominating yet sweet like Nick I'd be in tip top shape in no time!


Thank you again for letting me come over and gush about Katherine's book. I really enjoyed the dynamic between these two characters as well as with Claire in the team. If you haven't gotten a chance to read this one yet, you should definitely give it a go!

Starting next week we'll be discussing the five books in What The Doctor Ordered a medical BDSM collection by Trent Evans, Tara Finnegan, Natasha Knight, Sue Lyndon and Casey McKay. We'll be bringing in the holdiay season with some naughty doctors and their patients!

Spanking Stories Book Club: Warrior By Cara Bristol



Thank you to Sue Lyndon for hosting today's discussion! 

Today we are discussing Warrior, the third book in Cara Bristol’s Breeder series. I was sad to see the series come to an end, but I found the conclusion of Warrior extremely satisfying and I especially liked seeing what the characters from Breeder (book 1) and Terran (book 2) were up to. I enjoyed all the books in this science fiction romance series, thought the world building was incredible, and found the stories and characters very in-depth and well-written. If you haven’t read the Breeder books yet, I highly recommend them!

Warrior blurb:

Between war and duty, they find love…
On a planet where women are chattel, Anika is to be delivered to become the mate of an Alpha Commander. Secretly in love with another, she is unable to accept the arrangement and flees. Bound by his duty, her lover Urazi intends to bring her back to fulfill her function. But war intervenes, and as their planet fights a desperate battle against a villainous despot, Anika and Urazi become united in their determination to save their people. But with their lives on the line, the love they share may become the biggest risk of all.

Questions:

1. Is science fiction romance a genre you typically read? Or will you only venture into it if an author you like publishes a book in this genre?

2. Anika runs away in the middle of a war and risks her life because she is determined to choose her own fate rather than accept a life as Commander Illian’s breeder, even though she would be much safer with Illian. She doesn’t want to go through life as nothing more than a breeder, and though she knows Commander Illian will protect her from the threats posed by the war, she also doesn’t know what her life with him will be like beyond that. If you were Anika, what would you have done in this situation…run away or take your chances with Commander Illian?

3. Urazi has feelings for Anika and he’s angry that she’s to be given to Commander Illian, but he doesn’t share these thoughts with her because according to Protocol he can’t have her anyway. Only an alpha can, and since Urazi is a beta, he doesn’t see how a future with Anika is remotely possible. Have you ever wanted someone that for one reason or another seemed unattainable at the time? How did it work out?

4. A lot of reviewers have said Warrior is their favorite out of all the Breeder books. If you’ve read all the books in this series, what do you think? Do you have a favorite between Breeder, Terran, and Warrior? Why?

5. Warrior is the last book in Cara Bristol’s Breeder series, but she has hinted about writing a spinoff series with the children of the Breeder characters. I think this is a fantastic idea, don’t you? (LOL sorry this isn’t really a question)
