When Holly sits on Tom’s lap to tell him what she wants for Christmas, she knows she’s naughty enough to get a lump of coal—but she never expected to get a hand of ginger root. Peeled ginger in her bottom burns like crazy without causing any actual harm—so the punishment can go on as long as naughty Holly deserves.
Ginger-figging has been used since Victorian times to keep girls from clenching against a proper caning because, as Holly finds out, clenching around ginger has her begging for mercy—and more turned-on than she’s ever been. From now on Holly should be on her best behavior…but with this sort of punishment, it’s more fun to be bad.
Ginger snap is a spicy treat for anyone who enjoys something unique, anyone who has read everything and wants a new idea, a new kink, a new literary thrill, and I should think Google hits for certain sites involving ginger root hit the roof when this book landed on Ellora’s Cave’s shelves.
Tom is a mild dominant; he’s nice, too nice. Holly wants him sharper, edgier, more assertive. Trouble is she wants it on her terms, when it suits her, in reality she is charge from the bottom of the relationship – that is so not how it works.
But come Christmas Eve is seems Tom has been doing a bit of veggy research and found a way to get just what he wants as the same time as giving Holly just what she needs; even though she doesn’t realize it amongst all her squirming, pleading and begging.
Ginger Snap is smoking hot, it’s seriously naughty but above all it’s a wonderful tale of trust and respect and seeing a couple nurturing the seeds of a healthy, fulfilling D/s relationship.
Phew! Ms Evers can sure pull out all the stops in a short story! I highly recommend Ginger Snap and defy anyone to be able to pause halfway through – be warned, this is a one stop read from beginning to end.
