Mary Ann’s Review
I’d originally passed this book over several times when buying things from Blushing Books, because I thought it was about an actual owl and I don’t care for animal stories. Last week I took the time to read the synopsis ordered it out of curiosity. I’m so glad I did because this is one of the best and most erotic set of spanking stories I have ever read.
This owl is not an actual owl, but a girl named Owl Emerson. She lives in a college dorm with a bunch of hippie feminist types and the story opens with her chained to a tree. That’s where the main male character, Dylan Scoffield, finds her and from there it gets better with each turn of the page.
Dylan is a ranger, and from the time he finds Owl in the forest he’s captivated by the young woman who identifies herself as being a member of Warriors of Gaia. As someone with a healthy appreciation for nature, Dylan isn’t entirely unsympathetic to Owl’s goals, even if he does find her extreme. In fact, their differences provide some of the funniest and best-written dialogue I’ve ever read. That dialogue – combined with a solid plotline – make the characters very real to the reader. Good character development is another plus. Owl’s wide-eyed enthusiasm for Mother Earth combined with her sauciness makes her very endearing, while Dylan’s deadpan humor and no-nonsense demeanor make him a very likeable hero. You can really feel the chemistry between them, so when Owl’s activism takes a dangerous turn and Dylan holds her accountable with some very firm and believable spankings, it all seems very genuine.
This four part series is a big book, too. It took me quite awhile to get through it, which is another bonus as I prefer longer book. But the best part, to me, was the balance between eroticism and the excellent storyline.
I can’t recommend “Owl and Dylan” enough. It’s well worth the reasonable price and you’ll be reluctant to put it down once you’ve started. I want to read more by this author!
