Chelsea Anderson has entertained fantasies of being spanked and paddled all her adult life. But until she found an ad on a BDSM site, seeking participants for a survey on impact play, she had given up hope of fulfilling those fantasies in real life. Intimate relationships haven’t worked out for Chelsea. She feels like a freak because of her secret desires, and because of her poor body image, she doesn’t believe herself lovable.
Slade Taylor, the Dom at Sensations who introduces her to impact play during one erotic night at the club, is everything she’s ever dreamed of. Handsome, charming, and in control. Slade also has been unlucky in love, but would a man like him be interested in anything beyond this experiment with her? Is it possible Chelsea has finally found the man of her dreams?

This is a new series starter by Ravenna and boy is it hot! A group of doms at a BDSM club, Sensation, decide to do a study. The study is about impact play, and in this first book titled Paddled by the Teacher, a young woman named Chelsea is participating in the study. She’s a size sixteen and she has poor self image. Her Dom is Slade, (mmmmm Slaaade) and because he’s so muscular and good looking, Chelsea wants to back out, but Slade makes her stay and he shows her what her real worth is. This was an incredible book for me, I loved how Slade made Chelsea see that she was a beautiful woman for who she was both inside and out, and how much he wanted her. Ravenna has a way with writing that makes you want more and more, she’s just so addictive!
Paddled by the Teacher is the first in a new series told entirely from the heroine's view. A novel in the 1st-person narrative is rare but Ms. Tate proves mastery of her craft again! This works very well. Chelsea Anderson's a young woman working for an ad agency. Her life's lonely.; She has extreme self-esteem issues, isn't confident about anything, is shy, withdrawn. She reads about an experiment at a local BDSM club & is intrigued. She's always fantasized about BDSM, what it would be like but never thought it could happen to her. She checks out the club & experiment, fills out the paperwork, does all the research & watches videos. She's finally on her way to set foot inside her 1st BDSM club. She's nervous & unsure. She knows the rules, everything she's learned about BDSM. But why's she doing this? It's only going to end like every other romance, date or sex, a dismal & utter failure. But this is her dream & fantasy. She's wanted this her whole adult life. She owes it to herself to at least try, right? Slade Taylor is a Dominant, co-owner of the club conducting the experiments. The study isn't just a come-on to take advantage of inexperienced women fantasizing about being submissives. It's truly to learn from the submissives involved. Blake & his partners want to make their club the best there is. To do that, they need input from women new to BDSM. Slade is Dominant to his very core. The club owners feel the experiments will give them what they need to be the best Doms & make their club better for all its members. The screening process is rigorous. Not just any submissive is accepted. Chelsea doesn't understand why they accepted her of all people! They have full face & body photos of her. How can they be interested in her? Don't they want model-perfect women? She's hardly that! When Chelsea & Slade meet, Chelsea's 1st impulse is to run as fast & far as she can. She's so outclassed here. Slade is gorgeous, perfect. Well, at least he appears so at 1st glance. There's also an immediate attraction between the 2 but how can that be? It's Chelsea's overactive imagination, right? She wants to experience BDSM so much she's making up feelings & emotions that just can't be real. That's all it is. None of this is real! She should just say thank you & leave. How can she waste this gorgeous man's time with her silly fantasies? From this point on, you're treated to a very rare emotional journey. Chelsea's failings, self-esteem, every facet of her could be you. But it's not just Chelsea that pulls you into the story. Slade's a real, believable man. His perfection, in Chelsea's eyes, isn't what it seem to be. The interactions between Chelsea & Slade, feelings, emotions, background, are all so intense & beautifully written you feel the anticipation, despair, joy, desire, disbelief & ultimate acceptance. This isn't just a game for Chelsea or Slade. It's Chelsea's ultimate dream. Dominance is Slade's deepest need. Ravenna Tate is one of the very best out there when it comes to writing erotica. With Paddled by the Teacher, she's changed her writing persona once again, giving us an up close & personal view into the lives of 2 very real people, damaged by their pasts, hopeful for their dreams, futures & possibilities. It's another huge success for Ms. Tate! Paddled by the Teacher is one of Ravenna Tate's very best works. It's an absolutely riveting book I couldn't put down. I give it my highest recommendation without reservation!
In this book we meet Chelsea Anderson, and Slade Taylor. I found myself already starting to reread this book. I find I can related to Chelsea in so many ways. I love that the author kept her leading lady int this book so approachable and realistic to the everyday person. I made it much easier for me to feel what the character was going through. I love that The male lead Slade took the time to see behind the façade and into the heart of the character. It makes me want to see what comes next in this series. This series could definitely turn in to a favorite quickly.
