Plot Summary:

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. 

My thoughts:

I was absolutely blown away by this book. I don't know what I expected, but I do know that whatever expectations I had were exceeded. It's easy to go in to a book like this expecting it to be salacious and gratuitous but it was anything but. There was such a depth of emotion and a careful addressing of the psychology and feelings behind a Daddy/Little Girl relationship. I can honestly say that I finished the last page feeling more edified, understanding, and sympathetic than I did in the beginning and to me that is a true marker of a good book. Plus the sex was hot!


Plot: 4.5/5

Final Thoughts:

I loved this book so much more than I had expected. I've been (unintentionally) reading so much romantic suspense that it was fun to try something different - especially since it involved a kink that I'm not necessarily familiar with. Princess Brat was such a great read and deep in a way I really didn't expect.  I fell head over heels for the plot and the characters. I highly recommend it if you're in a reader slump or suffering a book hangover or just want a refreshing, sexy, quick read.
