Daddy Morebucks — Normandie Alleman
BY THE WAY. This book is for mature audiences aged 18 and older. If you’re younger than that, keep on keepin’ on.
This isn’t the type of erotica I normally read. I’m all for the Dom/sub books… but I’ve never really been able to get into the whole Daddy/little girl thing.
But I decided to give it a try anyway.
This was my first read by Normandie Alleman (love the name). I really liked her writing style. It was very smooth and she was very good at being able to describe what was happening so that you could “see” what was going on.
The story itself wasn’t bad. I’ve seen the plot before. Poor girl that’s down on her luck meets rich guy who swoops in to save the day. There’s instant sexual attraction and they end up eventually falling in love. This was slightly different because of the Daddy/little girl aspect. It was kind of like Annie but with no actual children, but lots of kinky sex. Hence the title Daddy Morebucks.
Marley is a down on her luck prostitute. She hates it, but can’t find a better way to make money. She’s approached by a man in a bar who says that he’s looking for someone for his boss. She’s tempted with the idea of a five thousand dollar cash payout at the end of the night (which is more money than she’s ever seen… she can use it to get herself OUT of the hooker business) and agrees. The man makes her sign some nondisclosure agreements, apparently his boss is a very important guy, and whisks her away to go meet his boss.
She’s told from the start by Milton (the hooker finding assistant), that his boss prefers to be called “Daddy” and that there are other things that will be explained to her when they arrive at the hotel. At first she balks when she learns of the “Daddy” thing — not wanting to have sex with a pedophile, but she’s quickly assured that it’s just a fantasy and the bossman doesn’t actually like little girls, just grown women who wear pigtails and address him as Daddy.
After being reassured she sticks with her original agreement and goes to meet the man.
“Daddy” turns out to be a businessman named James. He’s a millionaire (of course he is) and he’s used to finding pro’s to work out his particular kink. Surprisingly, he doesn’t normally sleep with the girls he gets… he just does everything else. Of course, Marley is different and he starts to think of her differently than the women in the past. Those other women also left after the scene was over, but Marley is asked to stay the night.
The next morning, she’s taken “home” (aka back to being homeless) by Milton and is paid for the previous night. She wastes no time in using that money to find the cheapest apartment she can get her hands onto and finding a waitressing job.
James can’t get Marley out of his head, but didn’t get her last name or phone number (not that she has a phone to begin with) so finding her is harder than he expected. Though, thanks to the help of a PI, he’s able to track her down. She’s understandably taken aback when he shows up at her new tiny apartment. I would have been too if I had been in her shoes and some guy that I’d hooked up with, but didn’t really know showed up where I lived out of the blue. After some discussion, he’s able to talk her into letting him help her paint her apartment, and then letting him take her to lunch.
James is then able to explain to her that he’d like to see her again, be with her again like they were night at the hotel. He needs for her to be submissive — use the “yes sir” “no sir” and “yes Daddy” terms — and she agrees.
A few days later, he come back to her apartment to talk to her (and scares the bejeezus out of her because he was hiding in the shadows like a creep) and asks her if she would consider moving into his apartment with him. I liked that she didn’t instantly agree and told him that she’d have to think about it. Smart girl. Well. I mean. It’s not like she really took that long to think about it, but she did make it clear that she needed some time alone to think about the proposition. He respects her wishes, gives her a cell phone so he can stop hanging in the shadows like a creep when he wants to talk to her and leaves her to think.
Of course she agrees and next thing we know, she’s at his penthouse apartment (I did mention he’s rich — right? ) and is being shown around by a delighted James. He explains his rules to her and some of them she’s not too keen on. She has to check in with him wherever she goes, has to call him either “Daddy” or “Sir”, isn’t allowed to use any drugs, and can only have two alcoholic drinks a day. That last one kind of bugged me. Two drinks only? That’s barely enough to get a buzz (for me anyway). I don’t think having alcohol as long as it’s in moderation and not abused is fine. Marley agrees with me and pushes back against that particular rule. James warns her that she’s pushing her luck, but she sticks with her argument. One spanking later, and she’s a little more agreeable.
They settle into their new routine and things seem to be going great for them both. Marley starts to feel like she isn’t able to contribute anything to the relationship besides sex, because what can you get for the man who has more money than he knows what to do with besides that? He’s paying for all of her expenses and she’s starting to feel like a kept woman. She gets introduced to some of his friends girlfriends (friends who also share the Daddy kink) which allows her to make friends with women who are in similar relationships.
Christmas is coming up and she doesn’t know what to get him, so she approaches one of the women she’s befriended that isn’t in a relationship, and asks if she’d consider joining Marley and James in a threesome as a present to James (who has no idea this is being planned). Charmaine — the other workman — agrees and they make plans.
On the day of the planned threesome, things seem to be going exactly how Marley planned for them to go… until she starts getting jealous. She didn’t expect for that to be an issue, but seeing James with Charmaine makes her sick, and she ends up making an excuse that she has to go to the bathroom, but actually sneaks out of the apartment and leaves.
James is shocked when he realizes she’s gone and is frantic to find her. She seeks refuge at one of the other girl’s houses while she gets her thoughts in order. He goes by himself to Christmas dinner at his parents house (he’d been planning to take Marley as his girlfriend) and while he’s gone, she goes back to his apartment to spend Christmas night alone because it’s the only home she knows. He arrives home early and finds here there. They’re able to finally discuss what happened the night of the botched threesome and agree that they won’t be doing that again. They both profess their love for each other and then live happily ever after.
The book wasn’t bad. It wasn’t as great as other erotica Dom/sub books I’ve read, but it wasn’t a horrible read. I was more turned off by the Daddy aspect, but I knew going in that this was a part of the book. I don’t know if I would read this particular book again, but I would be open to reading more of the authors work… granted it’s not the Daddy kink.
I think I’d give this one an 8/10.
ps. Yes I know I said my next review was going to be for Avenge Me but this was next in my queue so… whoops. I AM reading Avenge me though.
pps. I think I need to find a way to label some of these as being for mature audiences. Like… over the age of 18. Yes? No? Or should I just let people read it that stumble across it?
