If you want a sexy, frustrating, quite obnoxious (but hey, she’s got issues) heroine – Taming Sugar is just for you.
This 40 minute read is absolutely delightful.
Roxy Cavanaugh is a rich, some would say spoiled and entitled, actress. She’s also kind of a bitch to everyone around her. Her agent and best friend sends her on a “calm the fuck down” retreat in upstate NY. He also gives her a few tasks to complete, as part of her forced unwinding process.
Right from the start, a swarm of bees forces her to contact the cabin’s property manager, and when Hunter Finn arrives to save the day. He also saves Roxy from herself.
The major scene in this novella is a play scene where Roxy is faced with her own insecurities, her own faults. Actually – everything that has made her into the raging bitch that she is. This scene is very emotional and the way she responded to everything Hunter was doing really made me sad. At the same time, I also felt for Hunter who was absolutely perfect in everything he did during and after their play.
Imagine Taming of the Shrew, sprinkle it with modern-day living, and squeeze a drop of kink. And there you have it!
The only thing I think that would have made this better is if it were a little longer so that their flirtations and subsequent play scenes would’ve been more elaborate (not necessarily in the kink department, you pervs). I really enjoy the mental and emotional aspect of these scenes.
After being dropped from the best role she’d ever gotten, actress Roxy Cavanaugh is on a week’s vacation to work on her patience. Being holed up in a little cabin isn’t doing much to help her, and neither is meeting sexy property manager Hunter Finn. Unfazed by her willful determination, Finn might be the first man strong enough to take her…if they don’t kill each other first.
A modern day, BDSM, Taming of the Shrew.
