Review: Federal Discipline
Federal Discipline by Loki Renard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A man in a position of authority, wears a uniform and believes in corporal punishment - what's not to like? Jaime Black is in the top of her FBI class and wins a coveted position of working for Jack Harley. Jack is the agent who only picks the best and trains them to be able to profile the violent killers. This is the main reason why he won't allow a woman to work for him. Women are fragile and should never be exposed to the dregs of society. He is an old school man who wants to protect and shelter women. He accidentally picks Jaime based on her scores and accomplishments. When he meets her in person, he rejects her for being unqualified due to a missing appendage, a penis.
Jack is a big enough dick to compensation for Jaime's lack in anatomy. Jack is a character who doesn't do much for me. Despite his sexy accent and penchant for reddening female bottoms when he feels they are disobedient, his view of women is appalling. There is a difference between considering a woman submissive and considering her inferior. This is at the heart of my difficulty with Jack. Even after Jaime proves herself over and over again, Jack still considers her lacking. Having worked with males like this, the story nearly takes a hit in rating for a despicable character.
Jaime saves the story with her perseverance and snarky attitude. She's funny as she pokes at the grouchy antiquated bear. Her irreverence as soon as she realizes he won't ever get over her breasts and lack of a dick is entertaining. Author Renard does a good job of pitting two incompatible partners together. There are sparks flying which do include a few erotic ones. From a kinky perspective, this is mild and sweet. Jack is only palpable when he's spanking the impertinence out of Jaime with his heavy hand.
The suspense part of the story involving the search for a serial killer is okay. It's a bit light in the investigative work. It's fine for an erotic spanking book. The crime scenes are nicely woven through Jaime and Jack's interactions. The book is a quick and easy read, recommended for kinky spankophiles who have a thing for a man in law enforcement.
