    Well that was a fun read. BDSM is not my thing so I read this book hoping I wouldn't cringe at the dom/sub play. Seoul Spankings turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The opening scenes, when Indigo uses the term "tiny gymnast", all I could think of was Ana in Fifty Shades of Gray referring to her bloody inner goddess. How I loathed that book.

The opening scenes, when Indigo uses the term "tiny gymnast", all I could think of was Ana in Fifty Shades of Gray referring to her bloody inner goddess. How I loathed that book. The great thing about this book is that unlike FSOG, the writing is actually good, the characters are three dimensional and wow, wait for it, the characters use sex toys and BDSM to enhance their relationship, not to replace a non existent one. Indigo is an American fish-out-of-water thinking she is headed to Korea for a job interview. Hyunkyung is the director of the multi-million dollar Han Incorporated. She believes her matchmaker is sending her a prospective wife. Both are shocked and disappointed by the other. I was impressed how quickly Vitsky was able to build a relationship between these two disparate characters. Their interactions are tentative at first but build to a sweet connection that was a pleasure to read. I enjoyed the tidbits of Korean culture that were woven throughout the story as well. I wasn't crazy about the switching first person viewpoints where the reader had to guess who was speaking. I also thought the stereotypical ugly American portrayals were too over the top and weakened the ending. Nagging issues aside, a fun read for much less than the price of a latte. Now to go find someone willing to hold the remote for the silver bullet I have to purchase.....

    A one-night stand. An American who has no idea of what she is in for, and a power-conscious strong-willed Korean business mogul. These are the ingredients to create an explosive mix and a wonderful story. The two main characters, Hyunkyung and Indigo, have a really bad start. Hyunkyung is not impressed with Indigo at first. She wants to send her home. Well, Indigo is not pleased either, doesn’t know why she was sent to Korea in the first place and wants to go home, too. In a way, the story can on A one-night stand. An American who has no idea of what she is in for, and a power-conscious strong-willed Korean business mogul. These are the ingredients to create an explosive mix and a wonderful story. The two main characters, Hyunkyung and Indigo, have a really bad start. Hyunkyung is not impressed with Indigo at first. She wants to send her home. Well, Indigo is not pleased either, doesn’t know why she was sent to Korea in the first place and wants to go home, too. In a way, the story can only take place because all flights back to the US were already booked out. Hyunkyung decides to have at least a hopefully not too embarrassing evening with Indigo, and Indigo shows qualities that Hyunkyung would not have expected at all and she realizes that she is enchanted by this American girl. If you want to find out what these qualities are, what makes Indigo so special for the other woman, get the book. I can definitely recommend it. I enjoyed every second of the story, and partly this was because Indigo never knew more than the reader and Hyunkyung is not safe from surprises concerning Indigo either. Sure, we do get to know more about Hyunkyung’s way of thinking, but basically I felt as surprised as Indigo about what Hyunkyung was up to, and wondered what would happen next. Virtually everything about her time in Korea is a mystery to Indigo. Seeing the rational Hyunkyung try to figure out Indigo is fun. Hyunkyung tries to keep some distance for quite a while, but she fosters secret hopes that this Indigo might be more than she appeared to be at first sight. It is wonderful to see how the women get to know each other. We can follow both women’s thoughts, as the point of view changes in the different chapters and Anastasia Vitsky is able to describe the nuances of what the characters are like, what each of them perceives, in a subtle way and with much love for details. Not surprisingly, I love the professional ease Miss Vitsky shows throughout the book. I openly admit that I adore this style of writing. It is playful and lively on the one hand, but always to the point at the same time. You get a crystal clear impression of emotional states, without excessive words, which leaves enough room for your own imagination to kick in. Apart from these two women who might become lovers, the clash of Korean and American culture is obvious throughout the story (but not exaggerated). Compared to the strict hierarchical thinking and acting of the Koreans, Indigo unwillingly shows almost anarchic qualities that spice up everything. Much of this happens out of ignorance and because of her being so honest and vulnerable. In the course of events she is hurt emotionally and her way of coping is different from the Korean way, too. In addition, there are a few situations that show cultural differences tongue-in-cheek. I loved this, because it was woven into the plot so nicely and easily. For me it added to the characters. As for the characters themselves, I found both of them very lovable and touching. They are not perfect and struggle with the emotional burdens every reader knows about. I did not even find the reasons that led to Indigo being sent to Korea over the top, after all we live in an age where personal assistants and agencies solve any problem for wealthy customers. Had the story caught me? Yes absolutely yes! Anastasia Vitsky has an awesome style of writing. Her characters have depth, their problems are what virtually everybody has experienced in one way or the other. I am talking about emotional issues here. These are connected to unexpected developments and then there is the question about the happy ending. In Seoul Spankings it was not clear for me whether there would be a happy ending or not. I had hoped for one, but I was left guessing whether it would happen. This kept me reading – with a lot of joy. So, if you enjoy reading an exciting f/f story, this is a book I absolutely recommend.

    I put this in the high 3s somewhere. After reading the Taliasman and Taliaschild stories, I was curious what else Anastasia Vitsky had to offer. Again I was struck by the author's ability to really flesh out characters in a short time. And, in this one, I really loved the culture clash between the two leads and the chemistry that follows. I'm also a big fan of ethnic diversity represented in lesfic and the setting in Korea is very well done. With Vitsky's writing there's a certain tongue-in-cheek I put this in the high 3s somewhere.

With Vitsky's writing there's a certain tongue-in-cheek element while also delivering a real storyline and characters. This is an unusual combo that the author pulls off well. What strikes me as funny is that she manages to insert a spanking scene into her stories while also depicting sex more in a fade to black manner. I find that to be another interesting combo. Btw, I'm not a connoisseur of spanking stories (or BDSM) but I am connoisseur of good writing and will follow an author or story if that's delivered. Vitsky does. This is another fun, engaging read and one I'd recommend.

    A charming look into cultural differences and how they can enhance life Indigo is under a misconception... she thinks she is on a job interview. Hyunkyung thinks Indi has come from America for a date and that she speaks Korean.

I liked this story because the dominant partner had flaws and uncertainties. She had to ask for help from others to help her understand Indigo and she had to be flexible. This story has a ton of emotion ranging from humor to hurt and back again. The one thing I did not like about this story was Madam Eve’s response to Hyunkyung confusion. She could have cleared things up much earlier but then there would not be a story. Overall this is a great addition to the 1 Night Stand series.

    This latest novella from Anastasia is a variation on her well established theme of exploring love and romance against a bdsm backdrop. In this book, you have a fun collision of two different cultures and distinctly different people.

In this book, you have a fun collision of two different cultures and distinctly different people. Indigo, the nervous, timid tourist abroad for an "interview" compared to the assured, confident Hyunkyung, definitely make for a case of "opposites attract". Without wishing to give anything away, suffice it to say their first meeting doesn't go well, but as the Anastasia explores and develops the characters through the book, you get to understand a little of why, paving the way for you to use your own imagination and let yourself into their world and definition of a one night stand. This is a fun, well written and crafted book which, if you're like me and catch the bus into work in the morning is a delicious way of spending time on the journey. If you're new to Anastasias world, I'd definitely recommend it - if for nothing else than the one liners which I'll leave you a few, before signing off...... ◾Kimchi tastes best when served with a side of spanking. ◾"Come I said, and she did" ◾“Say my name the right way,” she said, “and I’ll unzip my dress another few centimeters. Say it wrong, and I’ll spank you with my crop.” and its follow on ◾“Oh my God.” I writhed. How could she make me choose only one? If you're curious about Anastasia and her world of quilting, cookies, spoons and writing, you can catch her at http://governingana.wordpress.com which also has links to all her publishing outlets

    Nothing like a little erotica to get me in a better mood when I'm feeling down. Indigo is sent to South Korea by her great-aunt after a nasty breakup. She thinks she's there for a job interview; little does she know that she's there to interview for something a little, ah, more permanent - the position of wife to Hyunkyung Han, international business mogul.

The novella is short - it took me less than an hour to read it - and, as I expect in a short story, the plot is rather rushed and love comes way, way too early. I would love to read a full-length book version of this story, because quite frankly, I think it would be awesome. But, still, it was a rather awesome novella. I mean, there's spanking. And f/f sex (although the author does tend to gloss over the exact details and just give a general overview). And it was a fun little way to distract me from my real life issues. (view spoiler)[We never learned the identity of Madame Eve, so I was kind of like...what? Since she was the one who set the two of them up, presumably. Was it Indigo's aunt? That doesn't make any sense though. Hmm. Also, the ending was a little too contrived and ridiculous, but...whatever. I still liked the story. (hide spoiler)]

I don't know how a BDSM, spicy novel could be sweet, but it really was. The characters were lovely, sweet and the romance was tender and touching. The rocky start had me hooked. The relationship was full of mischief and I loved the opposites attract element, although it went even deeper than a simple opposites attract. That's the thing - when opposites attract there are often things that they have in common. Madame Eve knew that when she brought the two of them together. I enjoyed reading about the Korean culture and foods. Hmmmh, the kimchi sounds fascinating. At times though, I didn't fully understand what was going on - maybe because of the Korean side of things and a cultural unknown for me. Although, I really enjoyed learning about a different romance to what I was used to.

    When two worlds collided the love sparks began to fly. Seoul Spankings is a lovely short story of two women learning the ways of their heart: each woman discovering that walking together into the sun was all that mattered. I enjoyed reading Seoul Spankings; it was a delightful read though I kept thinking of Indigo as Cinderella. I’m glad she found happiness with her Princess.

    This has been one of my favorites :-) Both Indi and I are a bit slow on the uptake, thinking she was shipped across the globe for an interview. Clearly that wasn't what was going on! I loved the interaction between the two cultures and differences in social standing. It's long enough to tell plenty of their story and short enough to finish in one evening.

    ThreeStar I was left confused and fumbling through a lot of this book as the main character is being forced to learn to speak Korean by people repeating the various words at her as she says them back (mostly getting them wrong along with a lot of thought about what other words she thinks about while trying to say them correctly).

Indigo goes to Korean for a 'job' because her great aunt pays for her plane ticket, which I find incredibly odd because she's not going for a job, but to be a bride or at the minimum a date. I know Indi is running away from her ex, but I would still think she'd ask SOME questions before flying out of the country. Sure, it's not France where she'd rather be going, but there was nothing forcing her to leave the country at the first opportunity either. Not to mention, we never found out who the woman behind it all was, the Madam. The story is very insta love, which I'm never a fan of. A few spanks and a deep conversation or two does not make love. While some of the spanking were interesting, it seemed to be lacking in emotions and feelings to make it sensual or hot. However, I would read from this author again because I felt like it was the story and trying to write a story about the location, more than the characters that made it lacking, not the authors talent. Her writing was quite clean and easy to read. I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. Renee

    A decent read. It has a bunch of Korean words; places, foods, names, and so on, throughout the story. So you're going to be hitting Google every now and then to know what something actually means. But it's fine. The book actually does center around South Korea, and you do get a feel for that as well. Probably even better if you're all about the Asian vibe in your stories. Story-wise it's them meeting each other, falling in love, sprinkled with a little conflict, and then a happy end.

And since it's a fairly short story, then it all happens in a very short time span. It's speed dating with perfect results, more or less. It feels a bit rushed here and there, but some individual scenes are quite loving. Even though it's called Seoul Spankings, then it's very light. There's 2-3 sex scenes in the book, and there's a little sexual teasing, some light spanking, and some minor dom stuff ("say my name"), but I wouldn't label it BDSM personally.

    I loved this book although it would have been nice if it was a bit longer. The two women find that their first meeting does not meet their expectations and sparks subsequently fly. The Good: The characters were flawed but likeable and their interactions were fun. I found the fact that Indy had been sent as almost a 'mail order bride' by her great aunt, whilst thinking she was going for a job interview particularly amusing. The ex-boyfriend's comeuppance was also very satisfactory. The Bad: I'm not I loved this book although it would have been nice if it was a bit longer.

The ex-boyfriend's comeuppance was also very satisfactory. The Bad: I'm not hugely keen on books written in the first person. It's very easy to get wrong and much harder to pull it off successfully, but the author manages it here. Still that is a personal preference and I know plenty of people who love first person. I would read a sequel as I would like to know where Indy & Hyunkyung go from here.

    I want this story expounded! Then, I have no doubt that I would have rated it a four or even a perfect five. I've always wanted to read a lesbian story set in Korea, since most locals believe that there are no gay/lesbian Koreans and it is a 'disease' brought on by foreigners.

Despite all it's flaws, I enjoyed the story and the writing style.

    Brilliant. It all starts with a misunderstanding and that was pretty hilarious. Then you have the big differences between Western and Asian culture. Two worlds of opposites and it was so familiar to me. I loved how they took this obstacle. Both protagonists are strong women, each in their own way. The spanking is less than in her other stories, but the sex toys compensate this completely. I almost peed in my pants from laughing. In particular, the toy at the end of the story.
