On the flap: Katie, a blogger recovering from a broken heart, has sworn off relationships, even though she misses being the babygirl to a strong Dominant man. Afraid to make another connection, she hides behind her blog.
Johnathan knows he’s no Dominant without a submissive. A few conversations with Katie, and he thinks he may have found the woman he needs and craves.
Will Katie and Johnathan find what they need in each other? Can they become Sir and Babygirl?
Join them as they embark on an adventure of the heart, mind, body, and soul with big doses of kinky, BDSM-filled sexual escapades along the way.
Although we don’t know quite as much about Johnathan, we do learn he’s a divorced graphic artist who works from home and raising his twin boys all while trying to help out his sister. He seems to be innately dominant but also has experience within the lifestyle.
This reminds me a bit of one of my all-time favorites, the Brie series by Red Phoenix. Upon discovering this will also become a series, this first installment makes so much more sense. The first half of the story is mostly introducing us to the characters; their behaviors, patterns, and personalities. The second half is just snippets into their growing relationship. Some time passes between their first meeting and their initial sexual engagement although it’s unclear how much, regardless it draws the illusion this will be a long term connection.
While the second part of this initial outing was a tad disjointed from the flow of the first half, I still enjoyed this as a novella. It gives you enough but leaves you wanting more. The author has a nice technical writing style that switches seamlessly to a more conversational form especially within the dialogue between the two characters.
There is obviously a BDSM theme and more directly a Daddy/babygirl type relationship. While generally familiar with this, it was interesting to read more specifically about some of the dynamics in that type of bond. Even though some of the interchange between the two weren’t necessarily my kinks it was fascinating and enjoyable to read about something different to me plus it is not often where you read “she came with a gush” and that’s pretty hot.
As it is, the title comes off a bit misleading since there really aren’t any adventures…yet. I wish there was more to this one but at the same time I’m still intrigued to see where things will go with future installments.
