Maxine Reynolds knows it is careless to read naughty stories on her phone will driving, but she is utterly shocked by the consequences when she rear-ends ex-CIA agent Rafe Jennings, the head of security at her place of work. After scolding her for her reckless and unacceptable behavior, he proceeds to give her exactly what she needs—a long, hard, thoroughly embarrassing bare-bottom spanking followed by a belt whipping over the edge of his desk.
After her punishment, Rafe informs Maxine that from now on he’ll be making it his business to keep her in line, and though she protests, she cannot help recognizing that his guidance makes her feel safer and more loved than she’s ever felt before. Still, she can’t let herself believe that he could be genuinely interested in her or that he sees her as more than a girl who needs his help.
Yet once he takes her into his arms and claims her fully, Maxine begins to wonder if maybe he truly does want her as his own. But when Rafe is sent overseas for one last mission, her fears send her into a spiral of self-destruction. Will he return in time to rescue Maxine from herself?
Publisher’s Note: Unacceptable Behavior is an erotic romance novel that contains spankings, sexual scenes, anal play, elements of medical play, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
I honestly haven’t read an erotic romance with the content this book had before but I was willing to give it a try. Because of this fact, I have a few feelings that may not be what a normal reader of this would go for.
It would seem this type of erotic romance isn’t really my cup of tea. I honestly didn’t care for the dynamic between the two characters as much as I wanted to. Whereas I do like an Alpha male character, I was a bit turned off with him constantly calling Max a “little girl”. That said, she did act like one. So, I can’t really fault him for calling her that.
Raff was actually not that bad of a character. Sure, I didn’t care for the amount of alpha he had and I probably wouldn’t want him as a dating partner, but I did like that he had some kind of personality. I could see him working with a character like Max.
Speaking of which, I didn’t quite see her as a female lead that I could relate to fully. Sure there were times where I could see aspects of me doing a similar thing but I felt I could relate to Raff more.
Morganna Williams’ writing style is well done. The sex scenes are indeed steamy and I could actually see her story play out. I am unsure how I felt for the story itself, but I recognize that it’s because this is a personal taste. I wasn’t sure what my taste was and now I know a little more about myself where erotica fiction is concerned. Again, her writing style is good.
In all, I personally didn’t care for the story and I now know a bit more about my personal tastes in erotica. HOWEVER, I would recommend this book for a reader who likes this type of erotica. The writing is good and I could see the imagery. It just wasn’t my cup of tea.
Final Rating: 3/5
