I really couldn't decide between and 4 and 5 so its really more a 4.5. Liv is dealing with all kinds of internal issues and trust is hard for her. Trey likes what he sees but he also has to know that Liv is willing to be what he needs. The blackmail was really a good catalyst to really get them talking about everything. I really liked that both of them knew that they had to take a long look at themselves and what the other person brought to the table to find out if they could make it work. Neither one comprised on their needs. I'm looking forward to meeting the rest of the family.
This book caught by attention recently and I grabbed at the chance to review it. It captured my interest from the first sentence. Patricia doesn't make you wait before she brings in some heat. It's a quick read, but there is a story here. Liv has been a model for some time, but has recently given up the weight restrictions for the normalcy of plus sized modeling. Liv can eat like a normal person now, but the issues of weight linger everywhere. I could sympathize with Liz, she has a hard time feeling confident with her body. Trey doesn't understand of course, her body's beautiful, but he helps her with a delicious spanking. Trey is a wonderful leading man. He's strong in his convictions and he doesn't back down when Liv pushes his buttons.
There all kinds of spanking scenes, plenty of heat between Liv and Trey and a couple of side stories to fill out this book with intrigue. Trey and his brothers run a BDSM boot camp, but here you'll find some good D/s and spankings. I mentioned that, right? Yes, some fabulous spankings. I frowned to see alcohol was allowed at the boot camp and it didn't seem restrictive. But Liv is smart and puts the one-drink limit on herself, thank goodness.
I enjoyed this story and it was hard to put down. The majority of the scenes read very quickly. In looking at my rating system definitions I couldn't decide between a 4 or 5, so this is a very solid 4.5. I recommend you read this book. I will most definitely be reading the next book in this series.
Liv's Journey was provided to me for an honest and fair review
First of all, excellent title for the book. Second of all, I just adore Patricia Green's spanking romances. They are so hot, but have great storylines as well. If you're in for a steamy read, I highly recommend this one!
This is a great strat to the Journey family series where you meet Trey and Liv and see how these two become a couple. They definitly have thier problems but neither is willing to to let the other override theor own needs and desires. Its fun watching these two struggle to decide if what they have will last or if it is just a passing fling.
