Intimate relationships haven’t worked out for Macie. She’s been told she’s a freak because of her secret needs. And, because of her poor body image, she doesn’t believe herself desirable.
Dakar Garcia, the Dom at Sensations who introduces her to impact play during one erotic night at the club, is everything she’s ever dreamed of. Handsome, charming, and in control. Dakar has been searching for the woman of his dreams, but without much luck. Is it possible he’s found the perfect submissive, and the perfect lover, in Macie?

Spanked into Submission is the second book in the massively talented Ravenna Tate’s new series Spanking Experiments. So far, I absolutely love this series! Both in this book, and in book number one, Paddled by the Teacher, the heroines have been plus-sized, curvy women who are chosen by the doms for the surveys. As a sized 14 curvey woman, I totally applaud Ravenna for making her heroines real life ladies, bellies, hips and all!
As with book one, the subject of the book is about a BDSM club, Sensations, and their owners and dominant employees, conducting a survey. On impact play. The very lucky ladies *I’m fanning myself here* are chosen by the doms to come in and experience a night of impact play. Our Lucky lady is Marcie Brooks. Marcie is a total newbie when it comes to impact play, but she’s had fantasies of being spanked. Once she hears Dakar Garcia’s voice, she’s all done! Stick that fork in! He hands her a spanking skirt and asks her to change. There are lots of yummy scenes between Dakar and Marcie. I’m not going to tell you because that would just ruin the fun.
When it’s all said and done, Dakar promises he’ll call her. Having the not-so-great experience with men she has, she doesn’t expect a call back. So, does she or doesn’t she? You’ll have to grab a copy to find out, but trust me, you really want to! I’d say the only tiny hiccup is that this is written in first person while her other work is usually in third. It’s all a matter of preference.
The Spanking Experiments/Book #2. Ms. Tate has another winner on her hands!
Spanked Into Submission is book #2 in Ravenna Tate's newest series, The Spanking Experiments. It's another beautifully emotional story told in the first-person I absolutely adored. As with the first book, I very deeply identified with the heroine from the minute I started reading. To say I was riveted would be an understatement. This book is told entirely from the heroine's point of view, and Ms. Tate does this so very well. She once again proves her expertise and ease at moving through writing styles and genres. Macie Brooks is a 27-year-old woman working as a legal secretary. While she's fantastic and full of self-confidence at her job, her romantic life is nearly non-existent. She's had few dates, fewer boyfriends, and even fewer lovers. She's always known she's different. She has impulses, thoughts, feelings but was never able to put them into words. But after being called a "freak" just once, she feels like one. She also has an interest in BDSM, even having visited a few clubs. Because of her perceived "imperfections," she's never believed there was the slightest possibility of being involved in that lifestyle. Then a friend tells her about Sensations, a BDSM club conducting experiments concerning impact play. Of course, she's skeptical. But this is something she can't pass up. After doing an enormous amount of research and paperwork, she makes the decision. She heads to Sensations to meet Dakar Garcia, the Dom she's been assigned to. Dakar is a 40-year-old Dominant, one of the three co-owners of Sensations. The experiment scenarios haven't been designed to take advantage of inexperienced women who've fantasized about being submissives. These are truly interactions between experienced Doms and women who are intrigued by, but have no experience with, BDSM. Dakar, his partners, and the other members of the club want to learn from these potential submissives, not take advantage of them. Macie's more than apprehensive, especially after meeting Dakar. He's the most gorgeous man she's ever met. She has to keep telling herself, "This is only for one night." That's what the contract they both signed says. Although Macie keeps feeling a pull, like the moon on the tides, she knows there's nothing beyond tonight. She's been through this before. She won't let anything ruin this night. From this point forward, I was treated to a reading experience unlike few I've ever before enjoyed. As I previously said, I identify very strongly with Macie. She could very well be me. I felt her every emotion. To say that my tears flowed from the beauty and pathos of the story would be another understatement. But it's not just Macie and her experiences that drew me in. Dakar is totally believable in every way. Seeing him and their shared interactions through Macie's eyes made me acutely aware that the things aren't always as they appear. The feelings, emotions, history and background of both characters are all so intensely and beautifully written that you can't help but feel the anticipation, happiness, desire, despair, hopelessness, disbelief, and reality of everything that occurs. As Macie learns what submission is, and isn't, as well as what she can and can't accept, you learn right alongside her. It's a beautiful story filled with poignancy and deep emotion. One final note. This is an ADULT book. It contains sexual/BDSM themes and explicit language. If you don't enjoy erotic romance with these elements, PLEASE carefully think before buying a book you won't enjoy. There are always synopses and reviews available on Goodreads, Facebook review pages, and every booksellers' website. PLEASE use these resources so you're certain the book you're buying is one you want to read. PLEASE DON'T LEAVE A NEGATIVE REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. IT'S NOT FAIR TO THE AUTHOR! She works extremely hard to provide a quality work product. If you know you'll object to the subject matter before you buy a book, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice. But Spanked Into Submission is another truly incredible novel in this series. Ravenna Tate is a superb and extremely talented author, and she continues her excellence with this book. I highly recommend Spanked Into Submission, and give it my highest rating! Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
