When Father's away, with Daddy Dom she'll play

Throwing tantrums may be childish behavior, but it's the only way Adrienne Westley feels she can be heard. In the middle of a tabloid scandal, her father cares more about his career than the threats to his mouthy daughter. So when bodyguard Dieter Vanderbroeck enters her home, she's shocked by his dominant presence.

Try as she might to defy him, Dieter doesn't give in to her bratty attitude. Instead, he challenges it with a commanding voice and a firm hand. His authoritative tone calls to a part of Adrienne that she's long kept hidden—and as Dieter begins to unravel her submissive nature, it becomes harder and harder to keep things professional.

Adrienne's about to find out just where bratty little girls go: over Daddy's knee. Because he no longer wants to be just her bodyguard—he wants to be her Daddy Dom.

One of anticipated releases from my newest fave author. High expectations turns into disappointment. I was expected the story has the same amount of kink like the previous book, Little Dancer, but it didn't work for me.

Adrienne Westley is a total brat in highest order. She defends herself with throwing tantrums. Adrienne didn't get along with her father because he always busy and mother in rehab. But her life turns because her father's scandal and a bodyguard, Dieter Vanderbroeck. He's trying his best to protect her but it reached his limits.

I couldn't like Adrienne. She's too childish for my taste as a 'heroine'. I didn't find any submissive-ness in her nature. She is a typical girl who lack of affection. But Adrienne didn't want her new bodyguard to invade her 'safe' zone. Slowly she kinda accept him because his authoritative aura and didn't give a fuck attitude.

Dieter is ready to leave Adrienne because he thinks she's just a rich childish brat. But his protective instinct tell him otherwise. Dieter is a 'self-proclaimed' dominant but I didn't feel it. His self-restraint towards Adrienne as a client makes him want to discipline her.

Again, this one has really different kink because it's just a play. Adrienne loves to call him 'Daddy' because it's a trend(?) and Dieter enjoys playing as her protector. It's a win-win, though. Sadly, I couldn't feel any chemistry between them and there's no heat or passion. Also the sex scene didn't impress me much and rarely happens.

The story really focused too much in Adrienne's family drama and Dieter is the major player in the process. Adrienne is kinda redeemable in the end but Dieter almost fucked it up. Overall, it was a decent read and overly sweet for my taste. Still, I will read any of her works in the future.
