Marianne!: A Journey Round A Golden Sun
by Simon Lowrie
Marianne and Simon have been more than friends since they were kids, but when she meets Mark, her whole life changes. It’s not easy being spanked when you’re not used to it, but although the two men in her life are rivals, the one thing they firmly agree on is Marianne needs her wild side tamed. Once she’s had a taste of that kind of life, she’s not sure she wants to argue. She loves them both, but Mark is not the kind of man to share. When he breaks the triangle, he makes her choose, at a cost to everyone. Can Sophie, the quiet girl who accepts Simon’s discipline with absolute humility and never one word of complaint, save the day? She isn’t beautiful and dazzling like Marianne, and the special qualities she has aren’t on the surface, but her love for Simon goes past all limits. Shy and gentle though she is, perhaps Sophie’s resolve to heal two broken hearts will prove to be more powerful than all Mark’s dominance and strength…
Marianne! is a interesting read. Mr. Lowrie paints a picture of the perfect woman … as long as she keeps her mouth shut. When I first read this book I was kinda put off by the arrogant, vain, selfish little twit named Marianne. She was in essence a spoiled child, but an adult. I could not see what Simon, her male best friend saw in her. I still don’t see her qualities expect she is pretty. On the other hand, Sophie, a co-worker of Simon’s, is a great girl. She does everything to her best and is nice and friendly. She is a complete opposite of Marianne. In the first chapter I was itching to spank Marianne. All I could think of was SHUT UP YOU DISRESPECTFUL BITCH!
Yeah well as you can see I kept reading. I wanted to know what the hell where Simon and now Mark, the new boyfriend, going to do about her behavior. What ever it was it needed to be painful for her to really get it.
