3.5 stars. I rounded the rating up to 4 because I know I'll want to reread it. Sweet domestic discipline story about lost and needy Dee Dee and reserved teacher Simon. This is a slow paced story that concentrates on friendship and individual growth. There's hardly any sex and only one short spanking scene at the end. Some of the writing, mostly when explaining the DD dynamic, felt more like PC justifications than organic storytelling. But I had no trouble overlooking that because I liked the characters. Not as good as [b:Destiny Calling|13452949|Destiny Calling|Fabian Black|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1329291843s/13452949.jpg|18979197] IMO but I always enjoy this author's full length novels.
