Charlie and Lydia continue to face long separations due to Charlie's blossoming career. To help Lydia make better choices, and stay focused on why doing so is important even in Charlie's absence, the two add "just-because" [later to be known as maintenance] spankings to their marriage. Lydia struggles with accepting them, since it seems so unfair to her to be spanked to the point of tears when she's done nothing wrong, even if the spanking ceases right after she begins crying. Their first effort at a "just-because" spanking ends with Lydia acting resentful, conflicted, and angry, and Charlie accusing her for the first time ever of being a "brat" in need of correction. Things eventually reach a state of equilibrium, until Charlie visits around the holidays, only to discover Lydia minimized the seriousness of a citation she got, and actually got cited not simply for speeding, but for careless driving by an officer who took pity on her when she was actually intoxicated. Lydia refuses to acknowledge that the verbal warning Charlie gave her a few years back matters at all, since it was mistakenly left out of their written spanking contract. The two must then figure out the complexities of Lydia being deserving of a scheduled "just-because" spanking the same day as Charlie's convinced she also deserves a punishment spanking. Given her obstinance, Charlie must also finally confront whether there are circumstances where he feels compelled to administer a forced punishment spanking despite a spanking contract which states that he'll never do so, and a personal promise not to do so. NOTE: This book contains vivid descriptions of sexual activity, domestic discipline, the spanking of an adult woman, anal sex and anal discipline. If such scenes offend you or trigger you, please do not purchase this book. In addition, the series is also about two young, devoted married people growing and maturing together over the course of multiple story lines...
