Again, like the first story, I didn't particularly care for this. However, I got the two at the same time, so it would annoy me to have the second unread on my TBR list long after reading the 1st. So I went ahead and read it hoping I might like it more than the first. I didn't. I still found Rick's discipline to be actual disciple (like a father spanking a daughter) rather than sex play and I disliked it. This is a personal preference of course. I enjoy a spanking scene when it's encompassed in sex and there is fun to it. But a sobbing woman saying, "It hurts" isn't sexy to me. Especially when it isn't mediated by arousal. Here the beating and the sex are two separate incidents and as such I couldn't over look the abusive nature of Rick's spankings as I can in other instances. Nope still not my cup of tea.
