Marley has had a rough life and has had to work for everything.
Marley has had a rough life and has had to work for everything. At the beginning of the book she is a working girl looking for her next ‘date’. James has everything a person could ever want and money is no object, and tonight he wants to ‘play’. An offer made by his assistant brings these two together for one night, but it ends up being so much more.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

It felt to me like a modern day version of the movie Pretty Woman. It’s the story of the poor girl who will sell herself to pay the bills, and the rich guy who needed the company. The major difference is the BDSM element. It wasn’t just a Dom/sub relationship, James wanted it to be a “Daddy”/”little girl” relationship.
I felt like Marley jumped into the relationship and the world James lives in without even thinking about what it would be like or what it means. They didn’t discuss anything or even what James expected of her till after she moved in, which wasn’t long after they met.
There is a saying ‘your kink is not my kink’ and that is how I personally felt about this book. The BDSM aspect doesn’t bother me at all because I enjoy reading the genre. I couldn’t connect with the characters because the “Daddy”/”little girl” dynamic that James and Marley had doesn’t do anything for me personally. I will say that the sex was hot.
Overall I liked the book. It was well written and the story flowed nicely. I would recommend this book to others.

An Intriguing & Steamy Storyline in a 3.75 Starred Story
As a reader who doesn't read many BDSM-themed stories, I still found myself intrigued by Daddy Morebucks as well as still confused by the appeal to those who choose this lifestyle. Unlike most of the BDSM stories I've read before, this one takes on a more psychological slant to the sexual interludes. It was a lot of specialized talk that formed the relationship between Marley and James and set the boundaries between them. While there was intense physicality here, I've read other works that delved into even harsher physical scenes. So those readers who have trouble with BDSM stories dealing with whipping, bondage, and depravation will find this read a kinder, gentler BDSM story.Was this review helpful?

Marley grew up harshly with only her brother to care about her. But with his recent death she's fallen on hard times and become a prostitute. Luckily for her a white knight comes calling as we evolve into a modern-day Pretty Woman with a kinky spin to the story. Marley soon learns that she's to be a rich man's little girl who must obey the rules while he's to be called Daddy. She easily accepts this role as she enjoys being taking care of, likes the safety her Daddy provides her as well as the gifts he gives. Though she loves these benefits she constantly feels inferior and worries that her Daddy will tire of her. She worries too that she'll embarrass him if people find out about her past. She doesn't see any self-worth beyond the sex she provides which leads to a disastrous choice for a Christmas gift that almost destroys the fantasy-life they have together. She truly loved James but couldn't understand that she was the only gift he needed. Marley was a tough character to relate to. I never really got a grasp on Marley's actual age as she acted the little girl part to a tee with pouting down to an art form and exuberance that was childlike. She wholeheartedly embraced this lifestyle though and seemed to thrive on it at times.
James is a workaholic who's found that his specific kink leads to problems in his relationships. After a particularly nasty break-up he turned to prostitutes. With each one similar to the last, meeting Marley is like a breath of fresh air. He sees no artifice surrounding her and she seems to genuinely enjoy being with him. He feels sympathetic for everything she's gone through in life and just wants to protect her and give her everything she's missed out on. Until now women seemed to want him only for his money but she gives him a reason to live life to the fullest as opposed to just living to work and he looks forward to coming home to her everyday. He will do anything to keep her there permanently, if he can just convince her of her self-worth. James is clearly the more mature of the two of them though his age isn't clear either. I found him charming but there's still a bit of the ick-factor in his referring to/thinking of Marley as a little girl that I couldn't ignore no matter how sexy he was.
On a whole this was a well-written story vividly depicting a particular form of BDSM that essentially encourages the complete care of the one you love. While these two characters seem complete opposites they bring exactly what the other needs to an immensely satisfying relationship. Each character is unique which provides for a variety of super hot sexual encounters that take over the story at times. Ultimately this is a story that bonds two people in happiness which is what every romance reader wants.
