Zachary Cunningham moved his family to Corbin's Bend when everything in their life seemed out of control. In a DD relationship with his wife Erin, he thought things had leveled out now that they lived in a community where everyone watched out for one another and discipline was the norm. Surely his family life could be more settled now.

Erin had never made friends easily and in Corbin's Bend she found it doubly as hard. A little too hard on herself, she ignored her mentor and any friendliness from neighbors; so afraid of making a mistake that she didn't try. Until her husband insisted. Having convinced herself she was doing what he wanted, she made friends with a few ladies who liked to push the envelope a little. From bowling to a strip club to smoking a little weed, her life was definitely a lot more fun, even if she was hiding her activities from Zach.

When her husband and the board of Corbin's Bend discovered their indiscretions, Erin and her friends found out what public discipline really meant. When the discipline led to a larger sense of security and more friendships than she could have imagined, Erin began to understand that following Zachary's lead truly was the way.

 So far this is my favorite book in the Corbin's Bend series, I loved Zach and Erin's kids and the constant sarcasm and bickering from the two. It was nice to see the story from a family setting and not solely focused on just Erin and Zach. Zach and the kids have found happiness at Corbin's Bend and settled in but Erin feels like an outsider looking in. She feels like none of the women want her there so when Zach takes matters into his hands and makes her throw a party she's soon to find the community more welcoming than she originally thought. When she makes it in with the "cool crowd" she finds herself in all kinds of trouble that sure to leave a gal's bottom red. The humor of this story had me laughing out loud and I absolutely love how relaxed the story felt as a whole. Leading The Way captured my heart and is sure to be a story I will revisit again.

When I read the premise behind this book, I knew this was one Corbin's Bend story that I really wanted to read. That Zack and Erin seemed to imagine that moving to a spanking housing co-op would fix all their problems amused me; I admit to feeling a little bad for Erin for that thought; it would seem that not hiding oneself would help. Except with Zack and Erin not using their assigned mentors of course would lead to issues. I loved the scene where he got frustrated and went to their mentors for help. The dinner party and the bad behavior on Erin's part that led up to it were great. I so enjoyed her making friends and how that led to the pot smoking incident were inspired writing. I was impressed by the care shown by the women during and after (in Erin's case) the women's public spankings. The love Zack showed for Erin was beautiful and obvious throughout. The kids' day the four women organized was such a great community event.

Another great Corbin's Ben Installment - In this story Zach and Erin have moved to Corbin's Bend to make life better but Erin seems to be having trouble.  And when she makes new friends she almost gets completely out of control.  This one was fun because we got to meet more of the community as the focus wasn't as much on the couple as their place in the greater community.

This is another in the Corbin’s Bend series. Erin and her husband, Zach, practice DD in the community and while Erin is grateful they moved there, she finds herself unhappy. She spends her days taking c are of their two little girls and the house as well as her husband who is a grade school teacher. Zach finally takes matters into his own hands and forces her to talk to her mentor who is kind and loving, encouraging Erin to put herself out there and make the friends she feels are missing from her life. Erin and her new friends find themselves in a big spot of trouble but though the punishment is embarrassing, all is good and Erin finally feels part of this special community and her marriage is only growing stronger. Well done and an easy read.

4 stars = I REALLY liked this book Leading the Way is the fourth novella in the Corbin's Bend series and serves as a cautionary tale highlighting the importance of communication in a Domestic Discipline (DD) relationship. In this installment we meet Erin and Zach who, along with their two daughters, have moved to Corbin's Bend in an effort to get their family back on track with a better implemented DD marriage. While Zach and the girls have adjusted well to the move, the same cannot be said for Erin. She's having a difficult time making friends and, understandably, feels shunned and lonely. Add would be expected, her feelings of isolation are worsened as she watches her husband and children flourishing.  Although DD is not my preferred subgenre, I found Leading the Way to be a hoot and a half. Because a large part of the storyline focuses on Erin making friends, the reader gets dragged along for the ride as Erin and her new friends get up to no good on their bowling day. These ladies are a mischievous bunch that kept me chucking at their antics. The sex scenes were steamy, but I would have preferred more of them. That said, the focus of Leading the Way is the relationship between Zach and Erin and how it is enriched by living in Corbin's Bend.   Ms. Masters has given readers a well written and entertaining novella that will enable you to return to Corbin's Bend and catch up on some former characters while meeting new ones. I really enjoyed this novella and am looking forward to the next book in this series, as well as checking out more of the author's writing. I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.  Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!

When Corbin's Bend Girls Go Wild Another wonderful addition to the Corbin's Bend Series.  Each book can read as a stand-alone, but are too good to miss out on any of them.  Corbin's Bend is a private community about an hour or so away from Denver, CO.  It is a unique community in that it is designed for individuals, couples and even families that practice a "domestic discipline" lifestyle. Zach and Erin Cunningham moved to Corbin's Bend when they marriage was taking a turn for the worse. Since they practiced a DD lifestyle, Zach felt it was best and Erin agreed.  But Erin wasn't making friends and it took Zach giving her an ultimatum about contacting her mentor. A dinner party was arranged and she realized how nice the neighbors were.  Several of the other stay at home ladies invited her to join them on their Wednesday bowling league, but that was a cover up for other activities, which lands them into legal trouble. Public discipline for the four was humiliating, but their idea for the kids as part of their weekly community service brought the entire community together in a very positive way.

Zachary feels like his life is out of control. Even though he and his wife, Erin practice DD his marriage is strained and he knows he doesn’t want to continue like this. When Erin disregards his wishes and involves their young daughter he makes the drastic decision to move his family to Corbin’s Bend. This is a safe community where everyone practices DD and takes care of each other. He just wants a simpler life. His wife, Erin has a hard time adjusting. Making friends doesn’t come easy and she becomes lonely and bored. Zachary has to step in and insist that she step out of her comfort zone and meet new people. She finally meets a group of ladies that enjoy going out and having a good time. Unfortunately they also like to stretch the truth and push the envelope. One outing to town with these ladies leads to major rules being broken not only within the community but also in her marriage. Not only does Erin need to make amends and face the consequences with her husband but also with the entire community of Corbin’s Bend. Although the lesson was painful these ladies managed to come together and pull the community closer. Erin also learns that letting her husband lead causes her to feel safe and secure. I truly enjoyed this story. It is part of the Corbin’s Bend series but can be a stand alone story. A wonderful, simple story about a loving couple adjusting to the ever changing reality of marriage.

loved this story! I especially loved the women who invited Erin into their inner circle and the trouble that ensued. I laughed out loud, it was hysterical!! Zach and Erin were a great couple, you could feel their love for each other ! Great read and I would highly recommend, even if you have not read any of the others in the series because this one stands alone nicely.

K. Tyler: This is a more subdued book four but engaging. Erin and Zach move to Corbin’s Bend after their family seems to be getting out of control. Initially everyone was adjusting well except Erin. She was resisting the help of her mentor to help her transition and began to feel isolated. Soon things changed and with her new friends came new problems requiring a heavy hand of correction. Most of the couples in this story have children and you get a glimpse of the community’s inclusion of children. A quick read.

Leading The Way - Corbin Bend's Book 4 Zachary and Erin Cunningham decide to move to Corbin Bends and live a DD lifestyle with their two daughters when they realized that their family was falling apart.  Zach and their daughters have a much easier time fitting in at Corbin's Bend than Erin.  Erin find it hard to connect and worries that she will never fit in.  With a helping hand from Zach (lol), Erin quickly and happily finds new friends who love to push the envelope.  What happens next...read the story and find out.   I enjoyed this book and liked reading about an established couple trying to find their way in their marriage and new town.  While is a softer story then some in the series, it is  well worth your time and shows great depth and realism. This is another winner for a wonderful series.

I really enjoyed this book! I love stories with established couples and I loved Zach and Erin. I loved Erin and could completely relate to her. Zach and Erin have recently moved to Corbin Bend and Erin is finding it difficult to find her place and make friends. I loved how supportive Zach was and how he helped (aka spanked) Erin. Once Erin does start to make friends, they start to get into mischief. I loved the women she connected with and the trouble they get into. I would highly recommend this book!

This was such a wonderful idea.  A community was created and different authors were invited to play there.  So far, all the books have been wonderful.  This book is about Zach and Erin.  They moved to Corbin’s Bend because they wanted to be able to live the D/d lifestyle more openly.  Unfortunately, everyone is happy except for Erin.  She hasn’t made friends and is somewhat depressed about the situation.  Zach is a good Hoh, but I do think that he spanks too quickly.  Anyways, Erin and Zach have a dinner party and Erin makes some new friends.  They all get along great, but they do bring her into their mischief.  The group gets into some serious trouble and the women are publically paddled.  I’m not sure about that.  I think that would be a deal breaker for me.  But, there is a HEA. As a side note, I would love to read about the rules of this community.  They have been hinted at, but I would love to know what they are.  Especially for Hoh’s.  Anyways, this is another good addition to the series.  I can’t wait until the next one comes out. 5 stars

This is the first book I have read in the Corbin’s Bend series but now I want to know more. This story follows Zack, Erin and their two daughters as they settle into life in Corbin’s Bend. They moved to Corbin’s Bend to save their family. This is a very well written story that provides entertainment as well as a look at some valuable life lessons.  I can’t wait to read other books in this series.

Erin and Zach are still new to Corbin's Bend - the beautiful, suburban dream town which happens to be a Spanko and domestic discipline haven. Zach, a committed head of household, is fitting into the town pretty easily. Erin on the other hand, is finding all the new people and the new situation to be intimidating. Managing her own emotions, making new friends, trying to fit in, and being the mother of two outgoing little girls leaves her with a lot to figure out. In a town and with a husband that has special ways to help people get back on track - Erin needs to navigate things carefully! I would classify this book as a domestic discipline book with an ever so slightly slightly voyeuristic side. My favorite thing about this book was the world of Corbin's Bend and getting to know all of the characters. Erin's character was very relatable and I found myself rooting for her  - hoping that she could get past her insecurities and enjoy her community. The writing was clear and easy to follow. The book can be easily understood by someone who is reading the book as a stand alone or as part of the Corbin's Bend series. I recommend that you try it either way. Although reading this one alone will probably just make you hunger for more. There are plenty of spanking, some steam fun, and shenanigans to keep you entertained as well.  Please note that I was provided with an advanced free copy of this book for review purposes.
