Jane Henry is a new to me author that intrigued me enough to continue the series!
I found a new author to try and I enjoyed the first book in the series. Deliverance starts off with a bang as Diana McAdams decides to key a sports car she believes is her ex-boyfriends only to come face to face with the owner. Not her ex. Tobias Creed is one pissed off Dom when he sees a hot lady keying his car in the parking lot of the BDSM club he owns. She’s not getting away from paying for the damages even if she believes she is sorry. As he is getting down to the bottom of getting damages settled when the club is put on lock down. Someone attacked a female member blocks away and the clubs name was mentioned. This leads to Diana getting an eyeful of the club and Tobias delivering a spanking for disregarding his orders.
Tobias is intrigued by the woman who entered his life and feels a connection he wants to explore, but he is a Dominant through and through. His club took time and hard work to establish, so when it it threatened he does everything he can to protect his club. Diana is a problem, but one he wants to explore.
Diana can’t believe she keyed the wrong guys car, but now she has to find the money to fix the issue. She’s done with men and falling in love. Quickly to fall, even quicker to get hurt. With a special needs son, she doesn’t have time for playing games. Just pay for the damages and move on, but that isn’t the way things will go.
The story moves along at a good pace, but some key elements that got me, kept me from enjoying this throughly. While the ex-boyfriend plays a key part of them meeting and her swearing off love, you never really learn much about him or his name. The name part is what got me. The next thing that got me was this was centered around a BDSM club, with a Dom and the scenes felt off. For someone to own a club, I figured he would be into more than spanking. All the scenes revolved around spanking and not much else. If that was it, that is fine, but I wanted some more creativity, especially since he owned the club. Finally there is a scene that is about punishment and they had not progressed to a relationship yet. He is spanking her, but also playing with her to arouse her. That felt off as it was an agreed upon punishment/payment for the damages, but he took it too far in my opinion without talking to her about her limits.
The suspense was predictable as it moved through the story and I wondered why they couldn’t figure it out as well. Or at least look a certain way. Throw in Diana’s best friend (who I loved) starts dating the cop Dom investigating the attacks and it went way faster than I expected as their story is book 2. At one point it seemed she was working with him on the case. Who knows I guess until I start reading that story.
The great parts are when Tobias deals with Diana’s son. He is autistic, but high functioning. Tobias fell for Diana, but he also had to get along with her son, which not even the son’s father bothered to try. Each child with behavior hardships are unique, but Tobias is patient and firm, while also being supportive. While I don’t have an autistic child, I do have other issues that also at time require stepping out of the box to deal with. Diana kept a good routine, but I felt her pain when the child got stuck in his head about something and refused to be reasonable. Been there, done that so many times, I wanted to hug her.
The story is well written, a few bumps in the road, but overall, it did suck me in and having me wanting to read more from this author. My hope is it is not all just a spanking good time, but we shall see. A good opening story to get me hooked.
