Product Description

"A Sweet BDSM? I Never Would Have Pictured It."

Leaving Cutters Creek was the best thing Stacy Jones ever did. Returning is the last thing she ever wanted to do.

Unfortunately it's her only option. If she wants some questions answered, she needs to go back and confront her mother. If she doesn't get the answers she needs, her whole future is at stake.

Eight years ago she ran away when the guy she loved betrayed her in the worst possible way. She's healed from those wounds but can she ever forgive?

Contains light BDSM elements, an ex-lover who didn't get fat and bald, a cranky ex-military barman, a father-figure Dominant, and a mother who couldn't give a **&^%! oops, I mean two craps about our heroine.

More About the Author

Jill has always loved writing and reading. When she was little, she pretended she could fly and had magickal powers. Unfortunately, she has many stitches to prove that she didn't. Paranormal and Urban Fantasy still fascinates her. Although she is a cynic, she loves creating worlds where men are alpha and have depth of emotion. She's only met a couple in the real world, so she finds that she can encounter them more often in her imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great debut novel 3 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bandit Creek is an online small town whose history and characters are created by a collaboration, led by the wonderfully imaginative Carla Roma.

Jill Christie's debut introduces Stacey Jones. Why would beautiful successful dominatrix Miss S return to a hick town she fled 8 years before, as a troubled teen? How far should you dig into the past, if you want to be happy in the future? Where do you draw the line when it comes to forgiveness, once your trust is destroyed?

Jill Christie's story has mystery, romance, humour and a 5-star Bandit Rating helping (because BDSM plays a major part in the story). The stories are all rated 1-5 on the Bandit Rating at [...] so it is easy to check content beforehand.

As a newcomer to Bandit Creek, I couldn't have chosen better. This isn't rural life à la The Archers. Ambridge will never twin with Bandit Creek. I know where I'll be visiting next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Erotic Romance 2 Jun 2012
By Cinette Santangelo - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Stacy couldn't get out of Bandit Creek fast enough, and now, eight years later, she has no choice but to go back. It was bad enough she had to face her neglectful mother again, but Brendan is back in town too, the guy who betrayed her all those years ago. She wants to forget who she used to be, but being back in Bandit Creek had brought back all her old insecurities and fears.
Will she get the information on her identity that she needs? Will she be able to face B once again?
Yes, there is a touch of BDSM in the story, but it's pretty tame and tastefully done. This is more of a touching reunion between long-lost loves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and Sweet 3 Jun 2012
By D. Miller - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I very much enjoyed this novella - had trouble putting it down. It moves at a great pace and gives the characters' backstory smoothly as the story unfolds. There are some BDSM elements but the author has kept it very light, just enough to intrigue the reader and I found myself smiling in delight. The interaction between the characters was natural and I found I was emotionally connected to Stacy and her story early in the story. I'm so looking forward to another book by this author... here's hoping one is out soon! This is an author I'll be watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet BDSM? I never would have pictured it. 7 Jun 2012
By A. L. Palmer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fantastic read. I wish it had been longer, but I do hope Jill Christie has a sequel up her sleeve... I want to find out more about Stacy, and Brendan too! There's BDSM, but it reads like more of a 'sweet' romance than the usual erotic romance available. Definitely recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Complex characters 17 Jun 2012
By Roxy - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In TWICE SHY, author Jill Christie weaves an emotional tale when Stacy Jones returns to her home town of Bandit Creek to discover her true identity...and confront the man who betrayed her love eight years earlier.

This novella is so much more than your standard erotica. There's a whole lot of story here. It's a poignant read, filled with complex characters, who are flawed but human. And, of course, there's some hot sex scenes.

Although the BDSM moments are light, I feel I've gained a new awareness of the sub-culture as a whole. While the author does not wrap everything up with a neat bow by the final chapter (because real life isn't like that), the story ends in a satisfying emotional conclusion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for its length, but wish there was more about the characters 15 Mar 2014
By WeeBeaks - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is short (listed at 70 pages), but good. Stacy and Brendan grew up together, so had a long history, including a betrayal before the book begins. That, of course, means they can skip the meeting and getting to know each other portion for the most part, leaving the majority of this very short book for the meat of the story, which is about clearing up some problems from Stacy's past, going back to the town where she grew up, facing an unhappy situation and Brendan again.

The twist on this one is Stacy is a Domme and Brendan the sub, long before they really understood that dynamic together. They start to revisit that at the end of this book, re-establish their romance and friendship. I loved all the characters in this book as they were certainly different, so refreshing, from Stacy's adoptive fathers to Sarge the bar owner. I'm guessing there will be more books so hopefully more information about all those crazy characters. It was so nice to see the unique personalities rather than the more stereotypical ones in romances.

No typos or grammar problems that I noticed. The accents threw me a little in print at first, but I enjoyed it. I give this one 3.5 to 4 stars, probably would have more towards the 4 if it was a tad longer, but very good for length.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for an honest review.
