Hanky Spanky by Francesca Hawley
Curious Sub seeking the perfect Dom…
Karen Eckberg has spent months in front of a webcam, writhing and moaning, dutifully performing to Master Lars’ voiced commands. She’s sexually alive for the first time in her life but when her perfect Dom turns out to be none-other than her high school crush “Aw Shucks” Andy Larson, life takes an even more sensual turn than she’d ever expected.
Karen is everything Andy Larson has ever wanted in a sub, achingly responsive and eager to please her Master in every way. Unfortunately, their red-hot affair both in and out of the dungeon draws unwanted attention from his possessive ex-wife fueling Andy’s protective streak.
And now there's no safe word that can protect Karen from a woman scorned.
If you're looking for a hot and steamy BDSM romance then Hanky Spanky could be the perfect book for you. First of all I absolutely love the title - although I've had Madonna's song 'Hanky Panky' stuck in my head ever since I read this book! I also love that the heroine is a curvy BBW - and the hero is a big fan of every one of her curves. The story has a lot (and I mean a lot) of sex and BDSM scenes, and there may be too many for some readers. Personally I enjoyed every steamy scene, as they were all red hot and very varied - this author has one heck of an imagination! There is also a decent storyline with love, emotion and conflict in the form of a deranged ex wife.
Karen has spent months obeying the commands of her online Dom, Master Lars. However, she's shocked when she finally meets him and discovers that he is her high school crush, Andy. Once she gets over her shock they start a steamy, real life D/s relationship. But things get messy when Andy's crazy ex wife gets involved - can they survive her interference?
I really like the relationship between these two, especially the way Andy helps build Karen's confidence and self esteem. Their chemistry is absolutely sizzling, they really are a perfect match for each other in every way. The storyline was enjoyable and succeeded in keeping my attention from start to finish. This was the first book I've read by this author, but it definitely won't be the last. Five fabulous stars!
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
