Cassie and Tom are happily settling into River living. Cassie is sure this peaceful new home is enough to keep her out of trouble, but with Sue living there too, staying out of trouble proves just too difficult.

Cassie is further concerned about what relationship advice Tom may be giving Ryan. Overheard conversations and statements from Ryan has her worried that Tom may have shared ideas of adult spanking in his advice to Ryan. But when it seems Allie knows too, Cassie realizes she is going to have to try to explain things more fully. Can Cassie explain their way of life to an eighteen-year-old Allie?

This book contains scenes with spanking between two mature adults.

Chapter One

How many more surprise could I take? I married the best man in the world, Tom Duff, more than thirty years ago. He’s managed to keep me happy, and more than satisfied, all those years. Just over a year ago, Tom bought me a house on the river that was the home of my dreams. The house formerly belonged to friends of ours and we’d often stayed there as guests. When Tom found out the owners were selling, he signed the papers at once, and I had a surprise birthday gift like no other. Originally we thought to keep this river house as a weekend get away, but after remodeling and making the house exactly what we wanted, it became our permanent home.

I knew how much I’d love the house, but I never realized what wonderful neighbors I’d have. Kate and Chris Daniels are exceptional people. I had hoped that Kate and I would become close friends, and we are friends, but what I never imagined was the extremely close friendship that developed between their teenage daughter and me. Allie is only seventeen, but we have bonded as true friends despite the fact I’m old enough to be her grandmother.

I felt everything in my little world was wonderful, except for one big old, nasty fly in the ointment: Tom chose to go back to work. Tom supposedly ‘retired’ nearly three years ago. I was so happy. I foolishly believed that meant he wouldn’t be working all the time, and we could spend our time together. Evidently that was not Tom’s definition of retirement. Nearly from the moment he was to become ‘mine’ again, several companies have been on him to take consulting jobs. He’d taken several during those three years, which annoyed me enough, but recently he’d signed on to work again for the foreseeable future.

He tried to get me on board, explaining he’d only be going in three days a week, and that he’d been able to hire anyone he wanted for his team. He went on about an old colleague coming to join him until I wanted to hear no more about it. As it turned out, this was just one more wonderful surprise from my husband.

The old colleague turned out to be Steve Moore, Tom’s best friend. Steve’s wife is Sue � the best friend I’ve had in my life, not counting Tom. I’ve known Sue and Steve since before Tom and I married. They were there for me during my first marriage, a period of my life that was pure hell, as I struggled to survive the abuse of the sick man my father ordered me to marry. Sue and Steve, and another couple Annie and Andy Holmes were my only true friends during that time, and they definitely kept me going.

My first husband died unexpectedly five years into the marriage and these four friends continued their vigil and kept me alive in the years that followed. It was a wild time for me, exciting, fun, and often dangerous, as I used my inheritance to party as if there was no tomorrow.

They gave up the full time job of keeping me somewhat reined in when I married Tom, but Sue and Annie are still my closest friends, despite the fact we’ve lived across the country from one another for over fifteen years.

Now Sue and I were to be together again, and not just close, neighbors. Sue and Steve ended up buying the house on the other side of Kate and Chris. The night I found out was one of the happiest nights I can remember. Tom was happy too, but I knew his excitement was tempered by his concern over just what trouble Sue and I could find for ourselves. I suppose some of the stunts we’ve pulled over the years gave him reason for concern. But nonetheless, I was overjoyed with their relocating, and I threw myself into helping Sue get settled.


Chapter Two

Actually, I was soon worn out from helping Sue get settled. We usually spent most of our days shopping for the new house, but last week we actually spent one afternoon doing manual labor, the only kind I like, planting flowers. It was time to get bulbs in the ground and as the afternoon wore on, we both looked as if we’d been wrestling in mud.

“I’m done,” Sue said adamantly. “You’re the flower buff. All I need is a rock garden.”

“Hush,” I told her. “You’ll thank me in the spring.” Glancing at my watch, I exclaimed, “Well, you get your way for today. It’s almost five. Tom will be home soon, I have to get cleaned up.”

I hurried toward home. Tom really likes me to be there to greet him and I like it myself, but with Sue around, I didn’t always make it. I also wanted to look nice when he arrived, but I saw Tom turn into our drive as I left Sue’s yard and realized that wasn’t happening that day. He came out on the deck as I was crossing the back yard and burst out laughing.

“It’s finally come to this. You and Sue decided to spend the day making mud pies?”

“I’ve been working on neighborhood beautification, I’ll have you know,” I told him, grinning.

“Perhaps you could do a little more beautification while I start dinner,” he suggested.

The hot shower felt wonderful and Tom came to help me dry off. He then took my hand and led me to the bedroom, where he quickly helped me over his lap, his favorite position for me. I snuggled in as he ran his hands over my bottom.

“I think we’re going to have to make this a daily ritual around here now that Sue’s close by,” Tom began.

“I thought it already was,” I told him laughing. A quick pop on the butt caused me to try to quiet my giggles.

“I suppose it’s only a matter of time before you and Sue get into something you shouldn’t. I thought I’d make a preemptive strike.” With that, he took off peppering my behind with stinging swats.

The heat was building, but I was still laughing. “You can think of more reasons to spank than Carter has little liver pills! I hope this means that when we do get into something, you won’t spank me then.”

“Don’t count on that.” Tom stopped spanking to rub. “You’re really happy they’re here, aren’t you, girl?”

“It’s one of the best gifts you’ve ever given me, honey. I don’t think I knew how much I missed seeing Sue on a daily basis until I realized she’s here to stay.”

“They are, and I was wondering if you could stand more company for Christmas?”

Tom was helping me sit up and I looked at him curiously. “I know Annie and Andy are coming, but they’re staying at Sue’s. Is someone else coming?”

“I got a call from Ryan today. He wanted to know if we’d mind if he came for the holidays.”

I looked at Tom with concern. “You know I’d love to have him. But what about his family�”

Ryan � another of my loves. Ryan was a young man we originally knew from our church. Four summers ago, he came by asking if we needed any help with yard work. When we told that tall, skinny, gangly, fifteen year old that we didn’t really need anyone else, he looked so disappointed it broke my heart. We decided to let him come help, and within one season we’d let our lawn service go and gave Ryan the job full time. I loved that boy to death. He treated me just like a batty old grandmother and he absolutely idolized Tom.

Ryan’s mother had died when he was small, but his father remarried and his stepmother was a fine lady who had given Ryan two little sisters, of whom I knew he was quite proud. They were our neighbors in our previous neighborhood and when we moved to the river, Ryan came often to continue our lawn care. Of course, that’s not the only reason he came often. The first time Ryan saw our beautiful little neighbor, Allie, I believe it was love at first sight. Now that Ryan was a freshman at college we certainly got the lion’s share of his free time, but Christmas? I felt that there must be something very wrong at home.

“He only told me that the family was going to Georgia to be with his step-mom’s family and that he didn’t feel really comfortable going. I think he’s still having problems with his dad too.”

“How could anyone find fault with that sweet boy?” I asked in wonder.

“His father wants him to follow in his footsteps and take over the business some day. I’m sure many fathers feel that way. They’ll work it out. But I told him to come on, his room is always here.”

Tom went to finish dinner and as I dressed, I thought about part of a conversation I’d over heard the last time Ryan was here. I started out of our bedroom just in time to hear Tom say, “It’s our job to keep them safe. We have to protect them, even from themselves at times.” I came on into the room and the conversation was dropped.

Later that day I confronted Tom. “Just what are you telling that boy?” I wanted to know.

“Now, girl, it’s just man talk.”

“Don’t patronize me, Tom, and don’t you dare tell that child that you spank me.”

“Honey,” he countered. “I’m not the one telling the world that I spank you.” That took me back a little bit. I knew he was talking about my blog � which he’s never really approved of, but discussing the spanking lifestyle with similarly minded friends on the Internet was not the same at all.

“Don’t worry, girl, I’m just answering a few questions the boy has.” Goodness I’d love to sit in on those conversations. But he must be getting good advice from somewhere. Allie adores him, and I do love watching them together.

Chapter Three

As we got closer and closer to Christmas, time seemed to speed up and I seemed to be running faster and faster to keep up. Between Christmas shopping, wrapping, decorating, church functions and the constant luncheons and parties, I was wiped out. I’d enjoyed my freedom. Tom had been very lenient in many ways as I got used to having Sue back as a constant playmate. But he’d fussed several times about me coming home later than I’d said I’d be and not always having or answering my phone. I knew I’d been so tired lately and that sometime makes me a little snappy in the evening with Tom.

Tom nearly reached the end of his patience the other night. I was trying to finish up our Christmas cards when around nine o’clock he said, “Cassie, you look like you’re about to fall asleep. Leave those until tomorrow and get to bed early tonight.”

“I’m not going to bed at nine o’clock. Stop nagging me, I’ve got things to do,” I told him in a sharp tone.

“Enough,” Tom told me rising to his feet. Enough is Tom’s danger word. Once he says ‘enough,’ if I don’t listen, there is no doubt what comes next.

Tom was true to form. “I want you in bed in fifteen minutes or you won’t be sitting tomorrow. I’m tired of this attitude you get when you are overtired. You need to sleep.”

I was most annoyed, but I had enough sense not to argue. I supposed he’d been right, by the time I washed my face and got ready for bed, I was nearly asleep on my feet.

Tom came in as I crawled into bed. He sat on my side and gave me a gentle kiss on each eye. I don’t want you sick again. You have to pace yourself and stop spending all your lovely personality on others during the day, save a little for me. Now roll over and I’ll rub your back.”

My sweet man, he’s so good to me. I don’t know why I ever get snappy with him. I felt his hands on my back and I drifted off into total bliss.

~o~

My morning should have been just as peaceful, but it wasn’t to be. Tom seemed to be in a lecture mode from the minute I opened my eyes. He and Steve were planning on golfing that day, but before he left, he seemed to have the need to tell me how I should act at brunch that morning and the tea I was attending that afternoon. Mostly he was telling me to stick to orange juice and tea, rather than Mimosas and wine. I was still in bed, trying to ignore all he was saying � in a loving manner, of course, but he was going on and on about how a lady should act and about not overtaxing myself. I felt the later was a slam about my age, and I was just trying to tune him out.

He continued talking as he walked into the bathroom and I said very quietly, yet unfortunately aloud, into my pillow, “Kiss my ass.” Tom heard � he had walked back into the room � and suddenly lecture mode was gone.

He grabbed his bedroom slipper and lit into me before I even realized he had heard. That darn slipper hurts. He was pretty mad and he did a thorough job before he stopped. He said � still not letting me up, “I don’t know what has gotten into you lately, but I am not going to put up with it. You are not to leave this house today for any reason. You may not call or text anyone except for me and yes ma’am, I’ll check.”

I couldn’t stop myself from saying, “But I have a brunch and a tea today. They are expecting me.”

Tom gave me another half dozen hard swats as he said, “Then perhaps your friends will be disappointed, just as I am. You need a day to get hold of yourself and your behavior or so help me Cassie, this will have just been a warm up.” I was on fire, no way did I want that to be a warm up.

Tom let me up and held me as I snubbed. I finally ventured, “I have to tell Sue something, she is expecting me to go with her. You know she’ll come up here.”

“That won’t be a problem,” he said dryly, taking out his phone to call Sue.

“Don’t tell her you won’t let me, please. Just tell her I don’t feel well or something.” Sue knows I get spanked, she’s known for decades and she was present at my one and only public spanking all those years ago. In fact, Sue occasionally get’s her rump roasted these days. But I still didn’t want to advertise the fact I’d just been spanked and had been essentially grounded by my husband.

I had little hope he’d listen. Tom’s a stickler for the truth. But when Sue answered, I heard Tom say, “Sue, I’m afraid Cassie won’t be joining you today, she’s not feeling well.” I was slightly surprised that he was going along with my request when he went on, “She has a raging fever when she sits. I don’t want you coming up or talking with her today or I’ll see to it that it’s contagious.” Even though I was annoyed at him, I couldn’t help laughing in my head. Tom is so Tom and I do love him to death.

Another great addition to the series of the DD marriage of Tom and Cassie. This book delves into the later years of Tom and Cassie. Cassie is delighted that Tom is finally retiring and they can live enjoy being together. However her idea of retirement and Tom’s idea of retirement mean different things. As is Cassie’s way she makes it known to Tom exactly how she feels about his semi retirement. Cassie continues her antics and mischief making even though she and Tom have been married for 30 years. She still finds herself over Tom’s knee dealing with the dreaded hairbrush for her misbehavior. It’s quite obvious that neither of them would change a thing. This one ranks as one of my favorites in the series.

This is a continuation of the life of Tom and Cassie, mature adults in their sixties that live a domestic discipline lifestyle. They have been married for thirty years and seem to be well to do financially. Tom was retired but has gone back to working part time. Cassie has it made but acts like a spoiled brat so many times I want to just shake her. She is great with the neighbors teenaged children and helping them by listening to them and being open and honest. This story has plenty of spankings and no detailed sex.

This is the next in the series about Tom and Cassie. They are an older couple who practice D/d. Of course, it was a little more common when they first started. I like all the adventures that Cassie has. I hope I am as vital at her age! I do think that Tom goes overboard. When Cassie gets upset because he is working when he had retired, I can understand that. But Tom does not! He feels that Cassie should just accept it. I also like the new born relationship with Ryan and Allie. I think I would have killed my husband if he told people he spanked me. No way! Anyways, Ryan gets a little overbearing with Allie and Cassie sets him straight. I do enjoy this series. I can’t wait to find out what Cassie is going to do next. I give this 4 stars.

Ok, this was seriously my very favorite book I've read so far this year!! Cassie is an older lady in a DD marriage, and BOY is she sassy!!! *giggle* Don't let her age fool you, she is just as naughty and adventerous as someone half her age, and despite her "matronly status" her hubby is totally willing to take her to task and spank her naked little bottom. *grin* I loved it so so much!! This book had all of the things I look for in my spanking books (spankings - OBVIOUSLY, humor, friendship, romance, love, a great storyline) and NONE of the stuff that makes me uncomfortable (cussing, graphic sex (I dont think it had any described, but I assumed they "went on to do the deed" ;-)) I cannot reccomend Cassie's River Living to you strongly enough!! NOTE: When I read this I didn't even know there WERE other Cassie books, and now that I've read this one I am dying to read them all!! :D

Another great book in the Cassie and Tom series. I really like Cassie and choose to think that there is a lot of her in me (although I would probably choke Tom!) There is a nice message in the developing relationship between Ryan and Allie, with a sensitive subject managed well. The inclusion of Cassie’s and Tom’s friends and neighbours in the story really sets the scene of a realistic, well rounded and fulfilled group of people. I look forward to the next instalment and to finding out what trouble Cassie will cause to end up over Tom’s knee.

Cassie is a sharp,sassy woman who manages to get herself and friend into trouble. I love the fact that she is a senior citizen which does not slow her down. Her husband Tom tries to keep her out of trouble but doesn't, so Cassie spends a lot of time over Toms knee.nabdelightful read.

This is another fabulous addition to the the Cassie series. Cassie is definitely one of the sassiest and smartest women around and the fact that she's a senior makes it even more fun. Tom has his hands full with his beloved wife's antics and it looks like there is a younger couple waiting in the DD wings. Allie and Ryan are two young people both Cassie and Tom care about. Soon they too are a couple and with Tom giving Ryan relationship advise it's no surprise that Allie soon finds herself over his knee, I thought the author treated this new relationship very tenderly and hope we see more of the couple in future Cassie books or perhaps a sequel series of their own. Don't miss this book!
