When the perfect little stumbles into your life, what are you to do?

Lindy Rubin performed every task per her own strict routine. However, she was speeding toward forty and becoming bored with her orderly life. When she began to assess the emptiness of her personal life, she hadn’t expected the surprise destined to arrive. Was it fate that brought a beautiful girl with teary, azure eyes to her doorstep? If so, who was she to deny her Little Love help in her moment of need.

Author’s Note: This Lesbian Romance contains elements of Age Play and Domestic Discipline (D/s), if those are subjects you find objectionable please don’t read.

Review

A fluently written f/f romance with plenty of chemistry between the MC’s, though I’d have liked it better if the emotional bond between Lindy and Katy had been a bit more developed as well. I love the out for you trope but I think the author tried to do a little too much here in one story, a bisexual awakening, discovering a submissive side as well your inner little, and all seemingly out of nowhere, all because of one chance meeting. None of these “discoveries” were handled in a way that I found believable or compelling. There were some fun and sweet moments between Katy and Lindy but somehow I was never completely convinced of their potential as a couple.
Lindy is a strong, if rather too controlling character, and I felt she was too pushy and domineering as a Mommy, occasionally even for a Domme for that matter. She talks a good talk, but her actions didn’t always reflect her good intentions. Katy remained a bit of a bland, conflicting mystery and I couldn’t really see her as a little.

Recent Release: On the Same Page (Secrets #4) by K.C. Wells and Parker Williams

Blurb
When a Dom invites a shy bookstore owner to live out his fantasies, more than one life will be transformed.

Words are Heath Snow’s life. He can’t remember a time when he didn’t have his nose buried in a book. He couldn’t make a living as a writer, so he did the next best thing—he bought a bookstore. But when he’s not selling books, he’s living vicariously through the characters he encounters. Real men can’t hold a candle to the hot men in his favorite genre.

The Pride display in the bookstore window may be what captured Xavier James’s attention, but the man enthusing about books interests him more. The BDSM book lying next to the cash register is a pleasant surprise, and when he draws attention to it, Heath’s flushed cheeks and bright eyes pique Xavier’s curiosity even further.

Xavier is about to learn that some things are more important than work, and Heath is about to step out of his comfort zone, into a place where fantasy and real life coexist.

Review

I loved this new addition to the Secrets family! It stands out a bit from the other books in the series, as it’s quite light as far as BDSM goes, but as for character development and storytelling it is completely up to par with the rest and just a really wonderful love story.
I’m always partial to books with MC’s that own a bookstore, because books… and Heath’s shop seems so inviting and amazing, I wish I could actually visit it and get him to recommend books to me. I loved all the casual mentions of books and authors in this story, some of which were new to me. Must remedy that situation asap!
I loved how Xavier and Heath got together and the way Xavier introduced Heath to the club and the naughty fun they can have while roleplaying. It’s quite a whirlwind romance, almost too good to be true. Everything all rainbows and (proverbial) sunshine until … something happens that might ruin everything for our beloved couple. I cringed inwardly when Xavier made a mess of things at a certain point, as he struggled with his priorities and the whole “honesty is the best policy” thing that tends to be crucial in a good relationship. Though in his defense, he was in between a rock and hard place, and anyway, what’s a romance without a little rough patch to overcome on the way to happily ever after?
As always in this series, as well as in the collars and cuffs series, the MC’s can count on their friends to help them out or lend a listening ear. I absolutely adored seeing Rob again, as well as the other characters from earlier books of course, but Rob is so special. I just love him to bits. He is such a mischievous, vibrant character and then he earned my undying devotion by pitching the idea to start a book club. Team Rob, people.
