Genre: Domestic Discipline Romance Diana Kenyon is a beautiful, successful doctor with her own practice and her own life. But the occasional work she does for the DC-based Stanton Group thrusts her into the dark world of political refugees, kidnapping and torture. Her boss, and godfather, Jack Stanton, runs an organization that rehabilitates victims of political torture, giving them new faces, thanks to Dr. Kenyon, and new lives, thanks to The Stanton Group. When Jack thinks Diana might be at risk herself, he forces her to attend a seminar that will hopefully give her the skills she needs to keep herself safe. As the company owner of VRS Securities, Valerio Rios knows his subject well, and his seminars are well-attended by top executives from top companies who do not want to pay huge ransoms for their executives’ safe return. Val has seen firsthand what these victims go through. When Diana turns up missing, Val is hired to find her and bring her home safely. But rescuing the beautiful doctor is not the end of Val’s work. Someone is after her, and Val is determined to keep the independent and strong-willed lady safe. As he tries to find out who is after her, and why a successful doctor was taken in the first place, lies, deceit and mistrust hinder his efforts. Val Rios is a no-nonsense man, and Diana Kenyon is stubborn, willful and independent. Sparks fly as Val grows more determined to see her safe, and in his bed where she belongs, even if it takes a couple of trips over his knee to do it. *** This book is a suspenseful romance containing non-consensual spanking of an adult female***
Jade Cary hit the nail on the head with “The Point of it All!” This book definitely makes the short list of my favorite spanking novels of all time.
Dr. Diana Kenyon is sent to a seminar in Miami designed to promote self-awareness and self-defense in order to avoid kidnapping. Thinking this is a huge waste of time for someone who spends their days doing reconstructive surgery, she skips the second half of the class and hits the pool. Little did she know she would need these skills sooner rather than later as it was a solid six months before she would return home from that seminar…
Valerio Rios was struck by the woman in the back of the room who was acting more like a petulant child during his lecture than a renowned doctor. When he discovers she goes missing soon after his seminar, he quickly begins to work to recover her from her captors. Expecting gratitude instead of resistance, Val meets Diana's violence head on by baring her bottom and spanking her in front of his colleagues the night he finds her. Val is unable to return his charge immediately and finds that sparks (and spanks) fly between them during their precious few weeks together.
One of the things I liked best about this book was the pre-spanking banter between Diane and Val. Jade Cary delivered amazing dialogue that made me simultaneously giggle and shudder.
My biggest concern with this novel was its first impression. It was a little too ironic that Diana gets abducted after being forced, unwillingly, to attend a conference about kidnapping prevention that she griped about the whole time and eventually blew off. This had me believe that the book would lack believability and end up being too predictable. I’m certainly glad in the end that this wasn’t the case!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading “The Point of it All” and look forward to picking it up again some time.
