Abby is a young dancer who comes alive when onstage. She can barely cope with the realities of day-to-day life, but feels completely at ease when she is dancing at the Palais Theatre. Still living with her parents, she is shy, innocent and very inexperienced.
When I’m onstage, and all there is, is the music and the sweet burn of exertion and the glare of the hot lights, I’m me.
Imagine Abby's surprise (and delight!) when the handsome, stern and very bossy theatre owner Rufus Kingsolver takes an interest in her.
Oh boy. Mr. Kingsolver. He is good at reading people and he knows just what Abby needs. This book should come with a warning label because it is that hot. Abby finally feels that someone understands her and all of her odd habits. She acts like a little girl in many ways, because it soothes and comforts her, and she is PERFECT for Rufus!
"It's such a relief to know that there are other people like me. I'm not strange, or weird, or stupid.
THIS BOOK. I loved it! I thoroughly enjoyed every word. Please pay attention to book description and if it turns you off, do not read this. But if you love a hot, quick read, this is the book for you. I was fascinated by the Daddy dom world and also the way in which Abby grew as a person over the course of the story.
He strokes his thumb over my cheek and it comes away glittery. I’m dropping glitter all over him. “I missed you, little one.”
“I’m so sorry I caused us so much pain and I said Persephone and I wasn’t brave enough.”
“You’re the bravest person I know, babygirl. Look at all that you’ve done.” He pulls a tissue out of his pocket and wipes my tears, and then puts it over my nose. “Blow.” I do. The tissue comes away glittery, too.
“I’m getting glitter all over you,” I say with a shaky laugh.
He presses his forehead against mine. “Please get glitter all over me,” he whispers. “Drown me in it.”
There are BDSM elements in this story but it is surprisingly romantic and tender. I loved it so much that I am diving right into the next book by Ms. Hale, Princess Brat. Because sometimes you just need to escape with a few hours of fun, sexy fantasy!
"Yes. But what I want isn’t important. It’s your body and your decision."
Four cute and kinky stars! I have read other dd/lg books in the past, and while I find the lifestyle to be incredibly sweet and hot, I have not been able to find a book that portrays it as well as this one does. This has all the hotness of daddy kink while also maintaining a romantic storyline and intriguing plot. If you are not aware of what a daddy dom is, I would definitely suggest informing yourself before starting this one.
Abby loves to dance. Her job at the theatre is the one thing she knows makes her happy and she feels security in. When she misses her cue and the handsome but intimidating theatre owner, Mr. Kingsolver threatens to fire her, she seeks comfort somewhere else. Her mother had changed her room to make it more grown up, boxing up all of her stuffed animals and in her moment of uncertainty, she seeks them out and falls asleep with them.
They are my pillows, my warmth and my comfort. I breathe in their furry softness and close my eyes.
I thought that was a really sweet and subtle way to explain her love for her “stuffies”. Her mother finds her with them the next morning and disapproves, as her parents seem to of a lot of her choices. She is nervous to go to work, but as she’s waiting to go on, Mr. Kingsolver approaches her.
“You’re not going to make any mistakes tonight. Is that clear?”
My throat is too tight to speak. I’m burning up.
“Well?” There’s an edge to his voice. His knuckles push against my throat. Does he know he’s pressing on my windpipe?
I swallow and just manage, “Yes.”
“Yes, what?” His voice is quiet and insistent and demands to be obeyed.
“Yes, Mr. Kingsolver.”
He forces my chin a little higher. He’s standing so close I catch the scent of him, a rich piney scent that makes my knees tremble.
“When you’re out there,” he murmurs, “don’t think about the audience. Think about me. You’re only dancing for me.”
I really loved that exchange. Later though, when she breaks his most important rule, he makes sure that she knows that it’s unacceptable… in an unconventional way. She is confused and aroused and they begin this odd flirting/touching limbo. He leaves her notes when he wants her to some to his office, and one when they are messing around, he drops a bit of a bomb.
They begin to explore their relationship together, but it’s not something they can openly talk about and she would be mortified if anyone found out. They’re relationship is really cute and he is so sweet to her. This book had its funny moments to where I found myself actually laughing out loud.
I really enjoyed how this book explored the emotions of guilt that can come along with having a kink and the way people don’t understand it. I thought it was sweet, extremely hot, and well written. It was a quick and easy read, but I do wish it would have been a bit longer. If there had been a little more build up at the beginning of the relationship it would have been even better. This isn’t a “dark” read by any means, it’s definitely a lot mushier than I would normally read, but with this particular kink, it completely works and I really enjoyed it. I bought this as an e-book, but I am planning on purchasing the paperback copy of this one and will definitely be buying book two this summer.
Hale's writing style appealed to me as well. There's a poetic element that provided terrific imagery without being heavy or wordy. The story was well-paced, the characters were dimensional and showed growth, and the steamy scenes were electric, creative, and smartly placed throughout.
I absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for a little daddy kink or anyone who might want to try a new kind of dominant alpha lead. Looking forward to more from this author!
