Dark Without You

Dark Without You - Sue Lyndon 3.75 stars

Alice is one semester shy of graduating college. She's home for a few weeks when she receives a desperate (if you could call it that) call from her brother who manages a band that's just had its break. He talks her into joining him and the guys for the rest of the tour, and he's clear that he needs her to keep Andy in check. Alice accepts without second thougt. She's had a crush on Andy since she was a kid and hasn't seen him in a long time, plus she thinks it'd be a good thing to go away and have fun for a couple of weeks.

Andy is bummed the groupie he'd hooked up with left him. But that's not all of his problems; a lot has changed, he has other goals and he wants to quit the band. Well, well, well, that certainly changes when Alice, his crush from the past, walks into his life again; and she's not the little girl he remembers. In the past, Andy always talked himself into why he couldn't date her...um yes, she was underage. But now, that isn't the case and he is free to act because he isn't going to let her go.

Overall, this was an entertainly hot read. It's short, sweet, and sexy. Andy is into a bit of kinkyness, you know the kind... Alice isn't, well she's never tried that kind of kinky anyway, yet she isn't afraid to try, and when she does, she LIKES it. Come on, she even looks forward to the weekly maintenance spankings!!! <-- That right there made me say "what?!" This makes a quite good short bed time read.


Total Love. Domestic Discipline. He takes her world firmly in hand...

Alice Grove owes her brother a lot. After all, he adopted her after their parents died and worked several jobs just to keep food on the table. When he asks for her help keeping a musician from the band he manages happy until the end of their tour, Alice is more than willing. She'll do just about anything to please the enigmatic drummer she's had a crush on since they were kids.

Andy Steel detests life in the limelight. Touring for weeks on end with no company besides his fellow band members, trashy girls, and an endless supply of booze doesn't suit his old-fashioned ideals. He aches to have a long-lasting relationship with just one woman--but not just any relationship. He expects obedience inside and outside of the bedroom, and he won't hesitate to enforce his rules by giving his woman a good spanking. When he meets up with his childhood friend Alice in Chicago, all grown up and aiming to please, Andy knows the heat they generate is something special. Until he hears about Alice's real reasons for joining the tour, and until she skips town without so much as a good-bye. Andy has no qualms about chasing after her, but he may not like what he discovers along the way.
