When twenty-six-year-old Maggie Reeves wakes up in a hospital after a car accident, the last thing she expects is for a doctor from the planet Aureus to show up at her bedside. It is disturbing enough that she has seen this handsome alien before, in dreams so intimate that just thinking about them leaves her blushing, but the real shock comes when he calmly informs Maggie that she is his destined mate and he will be taking her with him to his world to finish her treatment.
Though Ian knows that his beautiful human mate is none too pleased with her situation, his planet’s treaty with Earth gives him two weeks to convince Maggie to accept the match. During that time, he will be her firm but loving daddy. He will hold his little girl in his arms, comfort her when she is sad, and cook her favorite foods, but he will also see to her most intimate, embarrassing needs and he will not hesitate to spank her bare bottom when she is naughty.
Despite her initial reluctance to trust him, Maggie soon finds herself surrendering willingly to Ian’s strict but gentle dominance and letting him take care of her completely. But when the mating period comes to an end and she is free to return to Earth if she chooses, will Maggie decide to stay with her new daddy or leave his arms forever?
Publisher’s Note: The Doctor’s Little Mate is a stand-alone sequel to The Prince’s Little Mate. It includes spankings, sexual scenes, age play, and more. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.
O’Reilly is one of my favorite spanking authors to date, so when this book released I quickly grabbed it up.
I will add this – even though this is a sequel, the publisher’s note is correct you can read it as a complete standalone from The Prince’s Little Mate. O’Reilly does a great job at keeping this book separate enough that if you haven’t read the first one you can still understand what is going on. But, if you have read the first one, you get caught up with the couple from book 1.
I really enjoy how O’Reilly is able to write a story that is still very sweet, yet it is done in a way that doesn’t feel like the romance and sweet factor is overdone.
Maggie’s character is one of my favorites of hers because I love that even though Maggie is strong in her own way, she does realize that it doesn’t mean she is weak if she lets Ian take care of her. Both Maggie and Ian were great characters as they learned how to live with each other, as well as learn what they both want from each other. Being able to follow along with their relationship as it forms, and as they both come to accept their feelings to each other was great.
I did also like how we were given a little update on how Allison and Eric are doing.
Overall, once again I completely enjoyed this newest book from O’Reilly and I can’t wait to read more in the future.
