The romance is sweet, the spankings earnest and entirely earned by our heroine. So often these books are either a series of connected spankings with no story or the reasons for spanking are contrived. Neither is a problem here. Plus, our heroine Jessica is definitely not "TSTL" or too stupid to live. This Boston lady rides drag (look it up cowboy romance fans) without complaint. What's not to like?
My disclaimer: I bought the book, I wasn't asked to review it, but I have congratulated the author on an earlier book, a contemporary set in NZ with a nice difference.
But Kelly Dawson doesn’t need to hold back. Her heroine, a proper Bostonian young lady suddenly orphaned in the western wilderness, seldom sits altogether comfortably, owing to the hard hand of her brand new cowboy boyfriend. He feels possessive toward her, since the two were the only survivors of an Indian raid on their wagon train, and, frankly, the young lady doesn’t always know how to keep out of trouble. They hire on as drovers with a herd on the Sedalia Trail, which leads to even more complications.
Still, between her pluck and his frontier smarts, the two manage to make it through, and they even get married before having sex, which Dawson very nicely and graphically describes. Since they are hitched, this very much is in keeping with the 1950s western ideal, though the actual depictions of intercouree and bare bottom spanking really aren’t what one would see on 50s TV. Which made the story even more enjoyable.
I love Dawson's writing style because she focuses more on the story line than the spankings and sex. While there are some spankings and sex, it is mostly about Jessica's loss and her way towards rebuilding her future. I have grown to like the easy flow of Dawson's stories. As you read them you can feel the natural rhythm of her writing style.
Seeing Jessica's growth from bratty orphan to hard working cattle woman, I became obsessed and couldn't put this down. With Johnny's firm hand and Jessica's stubbornness to change her attitude about the hand she was dealt, it proved to be a fantastic read.
