Great book if you are into DDLG kink

Those of you who know me, know that While I like Erotic Romance and some BDSM, I am not a big fan of the Daddy Dom/Little Girl kink, though I am aware that a lot of people love reading about it. I was asked to read this as an ARC, so I am reviewing it with an open mind and gearing this towards readers who like that sort of thing. Though I will interject just a few things I was concerned about.

First thing was the fact that the blurb and title don’t really make it clear that this is a DDLG book. The blurb states that when King Arthur (I believe just a king named Arthur, not Arthur of the round table), sees her, she isn’t tall. He refers to her in the blurb as His little one and at the end “the little highness of his nation”. But after saying she wasn’t tall, I thought that was referring to height not kink. Maybe naive of me, but I like to know what I am getting into. I did because the author told me, but other readers may not.

The other thing that disturbed me was that the heroine didn’t know at first what was going on as far as I knew, but she acted like a child. So it wasn’t until later when she thought to herself that she is really grown up and can bathe herself that I knew she was actually of age. One other scene she thinks something similar so I knew for sure, otherwise, because of the way she acted and how little she knew about the opposite sex, I would have thought she was a child and for a while I was freaked out that I was reading about a pedophile. So it would have been nice to have her POV a bit earlier to clarify some of that.

Aside from those things, the sexy times were ultra hot. There were a few punishments but that comes with the DDLG kink, so if you like that then you shouldn’t have an issue with anything that happens between the King and his child bride. The descriptions of the clothes and the toys were pretty awesome actually. King Arthur also had other king friends and people in court that had the same kink so the wedding reception was interesting.

I will give the book a 3.75 stars for the type of book it is, even though it is not my type of book. Though if the cover was changed to a picture of a 18-25 year old in little girl clothes, I think that would pretty much change everything, because it would answer all the questions that I had issues with.

Thanks to the author, Bell Pepper, for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
