Chelsea Anderson has entertained fantasies of being spanked and paddled all her adult life. But until she found an ad on a BDSM site, seeking participants for a survey on impact play, she had given up hope of fulfilling those fantasies in real life. Intimate relationships haven’t worked out for Chelsea. She feels like a freak because of her secret desires, and because of her poor body image, she doesn’t believe herself lovable.
Slade Taylor, the Dom at Sensations who introduces her to impact play during one erotic night at the club, is everything she’s ever dreamed of. Handsome, charming, and in control. Slade also has been unlucky in love, but would a man like him be interested in anything beyond this experiment with her? Is it possible Chelsea has finally found the man of her dreams?
The Spanking Experiments, Book 1. Ravenna Tate at her very best!
Ravenna Tate has another winning novel on her hands! Paddled by the Teacher is the first book in The Spanking Experiments, a new series & an entirely new writing style for Ms. Tate. It is a beautiful, emotional story that grabbed me from the very first minute I started reading it. I deeply identified with the heroine immediately after I met her. From that moment on, I was hooked. This story is told entirely from the heroine's point of view. A novel in the first-person narrative is rare, but Ms. Tate proves her mastery of her craft once again because this not only works; it works very well. Chelsea Anderson is young woman with a business degree, working for an ad agency. Her life is lonely. She has extreme self-esteem issues, isn't confident about anything but her job, is shy & withdrawn. But she reads about an experiment being conducted by a local BDSM club & she's intrigued. She's always fantasized about BDSM, what it would be like to be in the lifestyle, although she's never believed it could happen to her. She checks out both the club & the experiment, fills out a TON of paperwork, does a boatload of research & watching of videos & she's finally on her way to actually set foot inside her first BDSM club. She's nervous, scared, unsure. She's done all her research. She knows the rules, everything she's been able to learn about the lifestyle. But why is she doing this? It's only going to end like every other experience with romance, dating, or sex...a dismal & utter failure. But this is her dream, her fantasy. She's wanted this her entire adult life. Doesn't she owe it to herself to at least make the trip, find out the details? Slade Taylor is a Dominant, co-owner of the BDSM club conducting the spanking experiments. The whole experience, a study if you will, isn't just a come-on designed to take advantage of innocent, inexperienced women who have fantasized about being submissives. It's truly an experiment being conducted by him & his partners, Dakar Garcia & Asa Baker, to learn from the submissives involved. They want to make their club the best there is. To do that, they need input from submissives new to the BDSM scene. Slade is Dominant to the very core of his being, as are his partners. All 3 club owners feel the experiments will give them the knowledge they need to be better Doms & to make their club's experiences better for all the members. The screening process is rigorous. Not just any submissive is accepted. Chelsea doesn't understand at all why they accepted her of all people! In addition to all the paperwork required, they have full face & body photos of her. How can they even be interested in her as a submissive? Don't they want model-perfect, beautiful, thin, gorgeous women? She's hardly that! When Chelsea & Slade meet, Chelsea's first impulse is to run, as fast & as far as she can. She's so outclassed here. Slade is gorgeous, perfect. Well, at least he appears so at first glance. There seems to be an immediate attraction between the two but how can that even be possible? It must be Chelsea's overactive imagination, right? She just wants to experience the BDSM lifestyle so badly, she's projecting feelings & emotions that can't possibly be real. That's all it is. None of this can be real. She really should just say "thank you" and leave. How can she waste this gorgeous man's time with her silly schoolgirl fantasies? From this point forward, I was treated to an emotional journey I've rarely experienced. I identify very strongly with Chelsea. Her failings, self-esteem issues, nearly every facet of her personality could be me. But it's not just Chelsea & her experiences that pulled me into this story. Slade is a real, totally believable man. His perfection, in Chelsea's eyes at least, isn't at all it appears to be. The events of the experiment, the interactions between Chelsea & Slade, the feelings, emotions, history & background of each character, are all so intensely & beautifully written that you can't help but feel the anticipation, despair, happiness, hopelessness, utter joy, desire, disbelief & ultimate acceptance of reality. This isn't just a game for either Chelsea or Slade. This is Chelsea's ultimate dream & fantasy. She is a submissive but has never known how to express it. Dominance is Slade's deepest need. He's Dominant to his very core. He not only wants his club to succeed but he has a deep-seated need to know & understand submissives in every way possible. As this is the first in a new series of books by Ms. Tate, I am eagerly anticipating the next in the series which will be available later this month. All I can say is Ravenna Tate is one of the very best out there when it comes to writing erotica. She has written sci-fi, small town life & thriller romance/erotica novels. With Paddled by the Teacher, she has changed her writing persona once again, this time giving us a very up close & personal view into the lives of two very real people, damaged by their pasts & hopeful for their dreams, futures & the possibilities. It's another huge success for Ms. Tate! One final note. This is an ADULT book. It contains strong language & explicit sexual scenes. If you don't enjoy erotic romance with these elements, think hard before buying any book you know you won't enjoy. There's a synopsis on any bookseller's website & reviews on Goodreads & the booksellers' website as well. PLEASE use these resources so you're sure the book you're buying is what you want to read. DON'T BUY ANY BOOK & LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY IT. IT'S NOT FAIR TO THE AUTHOR! She works veru hard to provide her readers with a quality work product. If you know before you buy any book that you'll object to its subject matter, you're doing yourself & the author an extreme disservice. But Paddled by the Teacher is one of Ravenna Tate's very best works. It's an absolutely riveting book that I couldn't put down. I give it my highest recommendation without reservation!
This is a new series starter by Ravenna and boy is it hot! A group of doms at a BDSM club, Sensation, decide to do a study. The study is about impact play, and in this first book titled Paddled by the Teacher, a young woman named Chelsea is participating in the study. She’s a size sixteen and she has poor self image. Her Dom is Slade, (mmmmm Slaaade) and because he’s so muscular and good looking, Chelsea wants to back out, but Slade makes her stay and he shows her what her real worth is.
This was an incredible book for me, I loved how Slade made Chelsea see that she was a beautiful woman for who she was both inside and out, and how much he wanted her. Ravenna has a way with writing that makes you want more and more, she’s just so addictive!
