Jane Henry has shown up on the blog before, with her book, Beauty’s Daddy. Amelia Smart, though, is a new one to the blog, but not to me personally. Amelia mostly writes cowboy stories, mostly historical. This particular book is not historical, it is a contemporary story featuring two sisters and two hot, alpha cowboy Daddies.
Unlike some co-written books, Cowboy Daddies comes in two parts, each one written by one author. Amelia writes part one with Abby and Clay. Jane writes part two with Daisy and Shane. Clay owns a ranch. Shane is his old friend and ranch hand. Abby and Daisy are sisters, with Abby being the older, but just a little older. Daisy turned 18 shortly before her story takes place.
As a reminder about Daddy Doms, they are a subset of age play. There is nothing incestuous and nothing wrong with it. Age play generally has the Dom being called Daddy/Mommy or some variation thereof, and the sub is a little girl/boy. The sub reverts to a younger age, while the Dom acts as their parent. There are a lot of reasons why people do age play, as many as there are people who do age play. There are also a zillion ways to do it. Each couple sets up their relationship the way that it works for them. Daddy Dom relationships, also called Daddy Dom/little girl, generally don’t have the same reversion to a younger age, but they do have a lot of the same aspects, including the sub calling the Dom Daddy. If it isn’t your kink, it isn’t your kink, and as long as everyone is of age, consenting, and no one is getting hurt (any more than they really want, at least), it’s all good. I don’t pass judgment on other peoples’ kinks, and I don’t want to have anyone pass judgment on mine.
Anyhow, now that I’m stepping off my soapbox, I’ll get to the reviews.
Abby and Clay
One day, Shane calls Clay and tells him that someone has taken Glaze, his favorite horse. Glaze has been with Clay for years and years, and he loves his horse. Clay goes to track the horse thief down and finds that someone is living in an abandoned bunkhouse on his property. He watches to see who it is, and he finds Abby.
Abby has been living in the bunkhouse for a little bit of time and she took Glaze so that she could get back and forth to town so that she can get to her job. She doesn’t have a car or a license, and it’s too far for her to walk. She doesn’t think that anyone will miss Glaze because she’s an older horse. Clay is at least glad to see that Abby has been taking good care of Glaze.
There is a very good reason that Abby is staying at the bunkhouse and not at an apartment in town. All of her money is going to Daisy so that she can get her musical education. Daisy and Abby are/were in the foster system, and no one else is going to pay for Daisy to get what she needs. Clay decides that he is going to take Abby home and he becomes her Daddy.
Daisy and Shane
After aging out of the system, Daisy has come to live with Abby and Clay. Shane lives in the farmhouse too but in a different wing. Daisy has a crush on Shane, but he doesn’t seem to notice that she’s not a little girl. She’s also been running around a little wild since she got to the house. There is a wholly inappropriate guy, Malcolm, that she’s been hanging around with. He gives her some moonshine to get her a little comfortable so that she can sing at Abby and Clay’s wedding. Shane finds her and yells at her.
After the reception, Shane gets to the house and finds Daisy completely shit-faced and Malcolm there. Malcolm is a snake and a thief. Daisy gets into a bad spot, Shane spanks her, and the story goes on from there.
OK, here’s where we separate. I’ve tried not to spoil anything, but they are both pretty short stories, so I had to be careful. They are very sweet stories, strong HEAs, and a lot of happy relationships. I don’t always read dark and scary and twisted, I even, on occasion read books that don’t even have spanking or sex in them. I just haven’t reviewed any of them here yet. If you are looking for a light, quick read, with plenty of sizzle and spark, these books are definitely for you.
Hot cover, right? Don’t you just want to lick the chest and call him Daddy?
I never thought that I would like Daddy Dom stories. However, I really enjoy reading them. There are some definite hot scenes in age play stories (wait until I get to Zoe Blake’s new book) and Daddy stories, check out the scene with Abby’s homework.
Clay really does do what he can to help out Abby, even after she gets into a wreck in his truck because she doesn’t know how to drive. He punishes her for it too, but that’s part of the dynamic of the story. But that punishment also means that she’s forgiven after she has taken it, and the slate is wiped clean. Isn’t that nice?
Shane takes care of Daisy the same way and helps her figure out a way to deal with the money that her creepy-ass ex-boyfriend stole from Abby and Clay’s wedding presents.
Anyway, I was lucky enough to get an ARC from these two lovely ladies, and you got my honest and entirely voluntary review. If you like cowboys, contemporary or historical, both Jane and Amelia write cowboy stories. If you like Daddies, you’re in luck too.
Tomorrow I have an ARC from Sue Lyndon, a MFM menage story. I also have stories from Cari Silverwood, Zoe Blake, Aubrey Cara, and a new to me author, LK Shaw coming up in the next few weeks. Oh, and another Blacklight story from Livia Grant and another Daddy story from Isabella Starling. So, stay tuned for those! Meanwhile, happy reading!
