Review for Mountain Man Daddy by Kara Kelley - 4 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK - AUDIBLE LINK -
Since retiring from his job as an officer with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Mike Hunter has been living off grid in a cabin nestled in the mountains of New Brunswick, but his solitary existence is interrupted when he pulls a beautiful young woman from her vehicle after a crash she is lucky to have survived. Mike's conscience overrides his desire for privacy and he brings the injured woman back to his cabin to care for her.
Avery Trent is desperate to get away from the ruthless men seeking to collect on her murdered husband's gambling debt, and the last thing she wants is to stay put in some mountain man's cabin until he decides it's safe for her to leave. But Mike gives her no choice in the matter, and when she makes a run for it Avery quickly ends up over his knee for a sound spanking.
In spite of her situation, Avery cannot help feeling safe and cared for when Mike gently comforts her after her punishment, and when he takes her in his arms his dominant lovemaking is better than she could have ever imagined. Mike does not hesitate to assume the role of Avery's firm but loving daddy, and he is fully prepared to discipline her as thoroughly as necessary to curb her reckless defiance, but will he be able to keep her safe from both her enemies and his own?
MY REVIEW -
I've never read a Daddy book because that type of thing holds no appeal for me, but I liked the premise for the book, so I thought I'd take a chance on it. Although, the Daddy talk still isn't my thing, I still liked the rest of it. There's a twist in the story that I really enjoyed, and overall, I really liked the characters. There's a bit of suspense that's really great! And some action! The sex scenes had some hot moments, and I liked the connection between Avery and Mike. There's lots of spanking involved, which I don't mind, but I would've liked if it stayed with spanking with the hand only. I'm not a fan of belts, whips, etc.; too cold and impersonal for me. The sex scenes do have their appeal. The story does move a little slow in the beginning, focusing on Mike and Avery "connecting", but it gets really entertaining. Avery is on the run from some bad guys that killed her jerk of a husband, she fears for her life. Avery has an accident in the wilderness and is saved by Mike. Mike is just what Avery needs, but they both have some issues they need to get past. I listened to the audiobook version, and really enjoyed it! The narrator did a great job, he has a deep voice that's perfect for a mountain man. There is a bit of female narration, but it's only for some of Avery's dialog. I was thinking why they just didn't have the female do all the female parts, but after I thought about it, her voice probably would've grated on my nerves, so I think it was a good choice to mainly use the male narrator. He did good. Look forward to checking out more from Kara Kelley!
