Twenty-year-old dancer Abby Williams has only ever felt truly herself while she's onstage. It's the one place she gets the firm direction and focused attention she craves to keep her whimsical thoughts in order. Offstage she feels out of place, forced to give up her girlish treasures and bombarded at every turn with adult responsibilities. But one missed dance cue in front of the intimidating theater owner could take all this away.

Summoned to Rufus Kingsolver's office, Abby is terrified the darkly handsome, commanding man is about to end her dream. But Rufus has other ideas. He wants to be her Dom. He wants her to call him Daddy.

Abby is shocked, but the spark of curiosity and taboo desire have her wanting more. Under Rufus's firm hand, they explore the erotic depths of their unconventional, yet beautiful, relationship. Abby is falling deeper in love with Rufus and the Little/Dom lifestyle, but it's not long before she comes face-to-face with her darkest fear—judgment from the outside world.

Daddy knows best, but what if, this once, he can't protect her?

***Our Thoughts***

Kassiah: I am not very familiar with this subject, but I’ve seen some tumblr posts, so take my opinion with a grain of salt 😉 The summary for this book is pretty spot-on, but I was totally surprised by how emotional this book was. This isn’t some dom telling a sassy, fierce woman that she’s actually a submissive at heart and her accepting it. Abby’s character progresses through this story, coming to terms with who she is and what she needs, and I really appreciated that.

It’s such a relief to know that there are other people like me. I’m not strange, or weird, or stupid.

There was some stuff that I didn’t like, like what happens toward the end with her parents and some foot-fetish stuff that I’m not a fan of. I also thought she used words that were too “grown up” for her personality, like cock and ass. There were a few things that reminded me of The Submissive that brought a smile to my face, so twific fans of that will probably like this one. A fast paced read with emotional depth and a dash of romance, Little Dancer surprised me.

***About Princess Brat***

Princess Brat by Brianna Hale
Published by Carina Press on June 26th 2017
Pages: 148

When Father’s away, with Daddy Dom she’ll play…

Throwing tantrums may be childish behavior, but it’s the only way Adrienne Westley feels she can be heard. In the middle of a tabloid scandal, her father cares more about his career than the threats to his mouthy daughter. So when bodyguard Dieter Vanderbroeck enters her home, she’s shocked by his dominant presence.

Try as she might to defy him, Dieter doesn’t give in to her bratty attitude. Instead, he challenges it with a commanding voice and a firm hand. His authoritative tone calls to a part of Adrienne that she’s long kept hidden—and as Dieter begins to unravel her submissive nature, it becomes harder and harder to keep things professional.

Adrienne’s about to find out just where bratty little girls go: over Daddy’s knee. Because he no longer wants to be just her bodyguard—he wants to be her Daddy Dom.


We don’t speak on the way home, but when we’re parked on my street he says, “I need to install an app on your phone that tracks your location should I be unable to find you.” He holds out his hand.

So even after what happened today he’s still not quitting. What do I have to do? “If you can’t find me that means I don’t want to be found.”

“If you want some privacy, shut your bedroom door. This is serious. Give me your phone.”


“Adrienne,” he says. “Look at me.”

It’s that voice again, the one he used in class that’s so different to his light, professional tone. Harder. Authoritative. In spite of myself, I look at him. My eyes linger on the hard line of his jaw and the severe planes of his face; the expertly trimmed sideburns. His hair is dark and thick, almost black, and neatly combed. I imagine running my hands through it, tousling the short locks. Then I shrug off the thought. So he’s handsome. He’s also a jerk and has about as much personality as a block of granite.

“I told you what you need to do to get me out of your life. Now, give me your phone.”

“How convenient. The only way I’m going to get rid of you is to do what you say.” I turn and glare out the windscreen at the waiting journalists hovering by the front gate. Two stragglers, desperate for anything to put in print. Dieter’s had to park a ways down the street and they haven’t spotted us yet.

“Fine. We’ll discuss this another time. Let’s get into the house.”

“Yes, mein Führer,” I mutter.

I start to open the door but a strong hand wraps around my wrist and pulls me back toward him. His face is very close to mine and his eyebrows bunch at the bridge of his nose in a way that makes my chest flutter.

“My name,” he growls, “is Dieter Vanderbroeck. You will call me Mr. Vanderbroeck, or Dieter, and not snide little nicknames like troglodyte or goon. You will not mock me in front of your classmates. You will respect the fact that I am here to protect you, and you will say thank you when I help you. Do I make myself clear?”

The world shrinks down to the exact depth and breadth of my bodyguard. I’m not used to being talked to this way, but at the same time, nobody frigging talks to me this way. I want to shock him, annoy him, let him know who’s in charge here. Me, not him. What would precious, professional Dieter Vanderbroeck like the least? I know.

I kiss him. It’s meant to be a quick, smacking kiss, a screw-your-rules kiss. But he’s ready for me, like he knew exactly what I was going to do, and he grabs my other wrist and pulls me closer. He kisses me back, hungrily, his lips demanding against mine. A hand snakes around my waist and I’m pulled against his chest, my breasts squashing against him. The heat of him is scorching and his body is so hard as I try to push him away. It feels like he’s trying to take possession of my very soul and I can’t catch my breath.

A moment later he breaks the kiss. “I thought you knew better by now than to provoke me.”

I wrench myself from his grasp, grab my things and fling myself out of his car. Tears are collecting in the corner of my eyes. I will not cry just because he keeps getting the better of me. I will not. I’m in control here. Me, not him.

But my shaking legs betray me.
