Corbin’s Bend: Tour and Giveaway

Posted on December 12, 2014 by Nadene @ Totally Addicted to Reading in Reviews / 0 Comments

Retired Marine Brandon
Delt, moves to Corbin’s Bend after his recently divorced wife marries
his cousin. Tired of living a non-discipline lifestyle, he fully
welcomes the openness of the Corbin’s Bend spanking community. One day
he hopes to meet the woman he could make his TiH. He doesn’t expect to
meet her on day one.

Carodine Minor’s just in Corbin’s Bend for
the summer. Just graduated with her master’s degree in chemistry, Dina
isn’t sure of her next step in life. Not once has she ever considered
being spanked. Logical woman that she is, when she finds herself
intrigued by the idea of a hand across her derriere, she asks for a
demonstration from Brandon. One demo turns into a wild night of passion
neither wants to let go of.

Take one hot summer. Add in an
intellectual chemist and a dominant retired Marine. Once the chemistry
ignites, combustion is soon to follow.


Any kind of relationship is a learning experience,
especially one wherein lies an energy exchange. In Domestic Discipline, where
both may make the rules, but one enforces them and the other submits, that
learning experience can be intense – for both sides of the equation. We
naturally think the  bottom would want
some help  because he/she is not sure if
their emotions are the norm, if their top should have insisted on a certain
discipline – plus, bottoms do tend to band together. But also the tops need
help. If you look at Western society, we’ve trained many of our men never to
hit a woman. And then suddenly they are in a DD relationship and know they will
need to spank their partner at some point? That’s a huge change in thinking.
Not to mention all the other emotional issues that come along with being in
such an intense connection.
Thankfully, the creators of Corbin’s Bend thought ahead and
every new top or bottom is assigned a mentor – someone who has been there, done
that and can help them through the travails of both a DD
 relationship and
living in a spanking-friendly community.

“While a few jerks have found their way in, it’s very few
and far between. You’ll find that as you work your way in. But,” he said, in a
tone of command that caused Brandon’s lips to quirk – once a commanding
officer, always a commanding officer. “One of the reasons I came over today was
to let you know I’ve been assigned as your mentor.”
“Mentor? Do I need one?”
“Every adult member is assigned one. Any man or woman who’s
on the top of the spectrum is assigned someone like me, either a head of
household or a spanko, someone who has been in the community since the
beginning. We’re here in several capacities. Someone to talk to. A call when
you’re confused. When you find a woman and start a relationship, I’m here to
bounce ideas off of. Consider me free therapy.”
Snorting a laugh, Brandon shook his head in amusement. “Just
what I needed.”
Benjamin shot him one of his lightning-fast grins. “Consider
anything you tell me sacrosanct, just as if you were talking to a therapist.
The only thing that would ever make me break that was if you claimed you wanted
to harm someone and meant it. Otherwise, free range, Delt. So, any questions
you need answered right off the bat?”
Knowing the man in front of him did not mince words and if
he said he was here for any questions Benjamin had he meant it, Brandon took
him seriously. “How many single women in the community?” His wife divorcing him
didn’t hurt, though her marrying his cousin did, and he hoped to find someone
to at least spend time with if not build something more substantial.
“There’s a few. And Denver’s only an hour away.”
“Besides the rule book I received, anything I should know or
be aware of?”
“Keep in mind this is a spanking community. Hell, Jonathon
and I have been in a DD relationship for a long time, but I was on maneuvers
when he moved us here. The first time I was home for a few weeks he had to grab
my arm when I saw a man slap a woman on the ass. My first instinct was to
protect her and he explained they were a couple and public spanking was
something I would get used to.” A twinkle entered his eyes. “It’s a bit
shocking the first few times you see it. Oh, also… if you hear yelling or
screaming from a house, most of the time that’s discipline related. If you’re
worried about it, tell me, Jonathon, or one of the board and we’ll look into
it.”
Shaking his head, Brandon tried to imagine it and couldn’t.
“Is it easy?”
“Getting used to the open community? Or being in a domestic
discipline relationship?” The question again pointed out just how easily his
friend saw through him.
“Both, but mainly the latter. I’ve wanted that kind of
relationship for a long time, but have no idea what to expect.”
“Easy? No. Especially not at first. Which is where me, your
mentor, comes in. She, also, would have a mentor. But the thing is no
relationship is easy. You both decide on your rules together and when she
breaks one, it isn’t just disciplining someone, it’s disciplining someone you
love. The first time I spanked Jonathon was a major turning point in our
relationship. For both of us. And,” he chuckled, “last summer when I came home
for good, was another one. He wasn’t used to me being around all the time and
suddenly being subject to our rules twenty-four-seven.
“You’ll have your ups and downs and will learn your
partner’s tells. But, I think being a Marine trains us for this. We’re used to
taking charge and being in control; we’re also used to watching out for others
and making sure they stay safe. This is just something you will have to temper
into your own relationship when it happens.”
“Temper?” Brandon asked in surprise.
