#BookReview + #Giveaway Finding Their Bliss by Thianna D

Brent Carmichael loved Corbin's Bend. A small community at the base of the rocky mountains just for spankofiles, he worked tirelessly to make sure everything ran smoothly and that the residents were safe and happy. He never intended to fall in love but when Charmagne Kendle stumbled into his life, he found an attraction he had no intention of fighting.

Char moved to Corbin's Bend after losing her job, her apartment, and her fiance all in one day. She had no idea she was actually moving to a spanking community but with the freedom to explore her secret fetish, she found herself happily upended over Brent's lap.

As their relationship deepened into domestic discipline, her ex appeared wanting her back. Now she had to choose. The rich, handsome, and charming Nathan Korven or former police officer Brent Carmichael. To find her bliss, there was really only one choice.
Brent and Marcus spoke in quiet voices as she was given two shots and four stitches. When he finished the tape on her bandage, she was glad. Doctors were not her favorite people.
“I would like to see you tomorrow,” Marcus said as Brent helped her to her feet.
“I’m sure I’ll be fi—”
“I'll bring her by. What time?” This time she did not swing her head to look at him, but she glared daggers at the floor, imagining it as his face. How dare he just lord it over her?
And worse, how dare it make her body tingle in a way she had not felt in a very long time?
“I’m sure I’ll be fine,” she said after he insisted on carrying her back out to his huge monster truck and setting her in the passenger seat as gently as if she were a baby. “I’ll just go to bed the moment I ge—”
“No, you won’t,” he said firmly as he put the key in the ignition and started up the beast with a mild roar. “You were in an accident, Ms. Kendle, and hit your head. You need to be watched tonight and, as you don't have someone else to do it, I will.”
The words should have set her off, but strangely she felt taken care of. She was not sure how to feel about that and, as she was not sure how to respond, she changed the subject. “There's all sorts of food in my truck. It's probably frozen by now.” Great, she’d just purchased all that food and it would probably be unusable.
“I texted Lelo to check out your truck. Knowing his wife, Kelli, she would have noticed the food and put it somewhere safe.”
That was… strange. Nice, but strange. Who goes out of their way to look after their neighbors like this? What was this? The twenty-first century version of Leave It To Beaver?
Even with the pain medication, her head still hurt and she found herself squinting since even though it was dark, there was still a tremendous amount of snow falling and, combined with what was already on the ground, it was rather blinding in the headlights. As Brent turned onto her drive, she tensed, sure that at any moment they would slide backward and this time she would end up in the hospital.
Surprisingly, his vehicle never swerved or slid once, just made slow and easy progress up the hill. When they pulled around the trees, it was to find her truck and a tractor parked in front of her garage. “I’ll get you inside and then talk to Lelo about your truck.”
Okay, so that was taking things a bit too far. It was obvious he was a nice guy, but he was also a bit of a Neanderthal. She could take care of herself; she had been doing it for close to thirty years. The problem was fighting the person inside who was shouting Let him do it, dummy!
Between the day she’d had and the meds the doctor had given her, she was actually stunned when he suddenly appeared on her side of the truck, quickly undoing her seatbelt and lifting her up just as gently as he’d put her down.
Safe, Secure, and Spanked in Colorado
Yep, at least a few of you said, “What?”
That’s the advertising slogan for Corbin’s Bend, a spanking-friendly housing co-operative in the mountains above Denver, Colorado. Or it would be if Corbin’s Bend actually existed.
Corbin’s Bend is the unique idea born of Thianna D, one June day as she sat down to write a new book. This new book, which became Finding Their Bliss, the first of many Corbin’s Bend novellas, turned into a unique idea. A set of novellas that take place in a unique housing development, all by different authors.
Community is the name here. In any community you will have people you like, people you don’t like, some who share your thoughts, others who oppose them. Corbin’s Bend is the same way. It is also one of the reasons I opened it up to multiple authors. While characters will be used and reused in the books, each book will have a different flavor, due to each author’s unique way of writing.
The first 8 Corbin’s Bend stories have been released, one is coming out this coming Wednesday, and more books are in the works.
Come take a taste. But I warn you. You’ll want to move to Corbin’s Bend, too, along with all of the authors, once you do.

Thianna D is an author of erotica and erotic romance, many of her books either domestic discipline or BDSM in nature. She loves to write about the emotional aspects of these kinds of relationships.
Finding Their Bliss came about from her fantasy about a perfect community where spanking and loving discipline were the norm. She was thrilled when eight other authors joined in to create the Corbin's Bend series, a set of erotic spanking novels and novellas.

Maya's Review

Charmagne had to pack up and leave her home when people found out she liked spanking. She lost her job and her ex-fiance dumped her. Luckily for her she unknowingly buys a house right in the middle of the Corbin's Bend spanking community. Brent is an ex-policeman and one of the leaders of the spanking community. He rescues her when she has an accident and from there their romance blossoms. That is until her ex, Nathan, shows up.

This is a nice quick read for those who enjoy DD stories. I'm more a fan of erotic spanking than DD but each to their own. However I wished I hadn't read the epilogue because finding out that Brent spanked Char as discipline (hard enough for it to show and her to cover up her skin) while she was pregnant was a total turn-off. How is it okay not to have vaginal sex with her because she is carrying the baby low and risks losing the baby and yet it is okay to hit her? Made no sense to me.

  1. Maya, I had a little trouble with that scene myself, and I'm hoping Thia hops on to explain it. As for preferences, I prefer DD to erotic spankings, but like you said it's a personal preference, and that's what makes the genre so diverse. Thanks to both of you for sharing.

  2. if i could move to corbins bed I would do it in a heart beat.

  3. Thanks for the snippet. I'm loving all the Corbins Bend teasers this weekend. Of course, my budget is squealing in pain, now!

  4. I agree with Kathryn, this scene was uncomfortable for me especially in her condition.

  5. I hope it's ok to join the discussion on spanking in pregnancy. I can understand the discomfort it caused people, but many people do continue to spank during pregnancy, both for erotic and discipline purposes. I think one of the key issues seems to be to go for more sting than thud, but with your doctor's confirmation that spanking is safe in your own personal circumstances.

  6. I honestly believe if there was actually a place like Corbin's Bend, there are people that would want to go live there. I have really enjoyed the Corbin's Bend series and each authors unique spin on a story that has been included.
