I've just finished reading Felicity Brandon's Goldie’s Surrender (An Adult Fairy Tale), which was in February, 2018 by Stormy Night Publications.
As is my regular habit, I've posted reviews on Amazon UK, Amazon US and Goodreads. I happily gave the book five stars, as I thought it's an entertaining and well-paced read. I'm not a fan of present-tense writing, but I scarcely noticed it while reading this, which made me realise I was really engaged by it.
Most entertaining updated and very adult version of a fairy tale
I was intrigued to read this as I’ve not dipped much into adult “reimaginings” of classic fairy tales, and the result kept me entertained from start to finish.
Goldie is a spoilt young lady, the daughter of a fabulously rich but distant father. The three brothers whose home she finds prove to be gorgeous, hunky in spades and have some specific ideas about behaviour. Hers in particular. And how they might encourage her to think about it. And they also have a little secret... Well, a kinda huge secret, really.
The story is told in short chapters, each a different first-person view on the unfolding events, which involve some ego battles, lots of steamy scenes and more than a little spanking. There’s a nice bit of tension towards the end, when the men are forced into revealing their alter egos, and understandably worry about Goldie’s reaction.
Having read and enjoyed it, I'm delighted to help Felicity publicise her book by posting about it here.
Guess who’s been sleeping in their bed?
The fairy tale is true…
If Goldie thinks one bear is her reckoning, how will she deal with three?
What if the fairy tale is real?
We all remember the story of Goldilocks, the young woman who stumbles across the three bears' humble abode while wandering through the woods. You'd always thought the story was make-believe, designed to entertain small children, but what if I told you that you were wrong?
Goldie Locks is very real, a spoiled young woman living in a bubble of her father's wealth and indulgence. It is this Goldie who makes her way into the forest, losing her way and eventually seeking sanctuary in the small cottage she finds there. But little does Goldie know who really lives in the deep, dark woods and what they will do when they find her asleep in their home...
In this intensely erotic tale, beautiful, headstrong Goldie is left blushing crimson as she is sternly punished and thoroughly claimed by the three strict, ruggedly handsome owners of the cottage in which she foolishly dared to trespass. To Goldie's surprise, the bold dominance of her captors arouses her deeply, but will she run for her life when their shocking secret is finally revealed?
“You don’t have to be alone,” I begin, raising my hand slowly to stroke the soft strands of fair hair from her face. I pause, absorbing its rich honey tones, and wondering at how beautiful she is.
“What will you do to me?” she asks, her eyes loaded with sin, as though she is at this moment considering all of the debauch options.
“What would you like me to do?” I reply, deliberately throwing her one of my most devastating glances.
Her lips part at my question, and I swear I can hear the pounding of her heart. “I don’t think I’ve ever been with someone so…” She pauses, eyeing me up and down again before she continues. “Big before?”
This time I have no choice, and I laugh gently at the thought. “Do you think you can handle me?” I say, deliberately wishing to provoke her.
Her right eyebrow raises for the briefest second, and I know she has taken my bait. “Of course, I can handle you,” she says flatly.
“So then,” I answer her with a chuckle. “You have nothing to be worried about.”
“Hmmm,” she replies, “not unless you…” Her voice dries midsentence, and something about the resonance makes my cock throb painfully at my waistband.
“Not unless what?” I murmur, pressing myself against her sweet body.
An unconscious groan leaves her lips as she feels, apparently for the first time, just how keen I am to keep her company on this stormy night. “Logan,” she breathes, her gaze coming to rest upon my own once again.
“Not unless what, Goldie?” I repeat, allowing my exasperation to show just a little in my voice.
She stills, acknowledging the tone. “Not unless you spank me again,” she whispers, her dilating pupils evident even in this light.
I watch her with interest. What an intriguing young thing you are, I think. The one thing that you protested so vehemently, now appears to be the one thing on your mind…
“If you behave, then you won’t need to be spanked again,” I say, maintaining eye contact with her as I speak.
Her cheeks flush, although I can’t tell if it’s with arousal or an evocative blend of her excitement laced with the obvious fear she feels. She swallows, evidently trying to play it cool. “But what if I want to be spanked again?”
