I don’t know why I bought this book. Maybe it was the cowboys. Maybe the ménage aspect. I don’t really know, but I will admit it was a waste of money. Let’s take a look why.
The story opens up with Kelsey being the slave of a high ranked detective in Chicago. He in general is extremely abusive, taking her weight and knocking off meals if it isn’t to his liking, but never telling her what her weight is. On top of everything he takes all her paychecks so she has no way out. He uses her for a blow job while his administrative assistant (male) watches on wishing his own wife would do that for him. Kelsey’s master then leaves on a business trip, but Kelsey has been planning her get away for weeks. She has sold her car and cashed in her 401K for cash. The moment he leaves, she dresses in a disguise and grabs a ticket west.
During the bus trip, Kelsey meets up with another woman who she helps out with money, but then keeps moving on. At a stop for a meal in a town in Montana, Kelsey asks the diner about a job as a cook, since she is a trained sous chef, but gets referred to a ranch who needs a cook. On the phone call to inquire, Marcus doesn’t question her much, but hooks her up with a ride with his brother Quinton. She starts right away making meals for the brothers and their ranch hands while also keeping the kitchen clean. She is attracted to Quinton, but doesn’t make a move on him.
Then one day Marcus comes storming home waving a wanted poster for Kelsey as a witness to a crime and immediately drags her to the barn pulling down her pants to spank her. Quinton walks in to find out what is going on and agrees with his brother. This is when the story completely fell apart for me. In no way does Marcus have a right to spank Kelsey as they have not entered a relationship and he is spanking her in anger, not as the head of the household. In fact both brothers spank her and have her stand in the corner, naked from the waist down.
I won’t go into detail about the rest of the story other than to say the do enter into a relationship after Kelsey comes clean about what happened in Chicago. They do continue to spank and punish her for small infractions with spankings and other silly punishments. The sex scenes weren’t erotic as I felt nothing for the heros at all. In fact I didn’t like them at all.
While Kelsey felt they were protecting, cherishing and dominating her, I felt they were abusing her without having any rules to stop them. If it was a domestic relationship, it still seemed to be wrong on many levels. The talks about what they expected from her was not very serious and sounded like more they expected it and she didn’t have a choice. The dialog was flat and most of the story did not invoke any emotion from me besides a need to stop reading.
Oh well, sometimes finding a good ménage story about cowboys isn’t easy. I need to be more careful in picking my books. It was an impulse buy that really didn’t pan out well.
