#6BestHop - 1/31/16 - A Dom's Dilemma - Forgetting who's the Dom #BDSM #Spanking

He demanded her obedience, but what she wanted was his love.

It's the last day of January and Sunday's Six of the Best again. That means I get to share another 6 paragraphs from one of my books.  Yay!

My submission for this week is from my 4th book, A Dom's Dilemma, a BDSM/spanking novel that is sometimes playful, sometimes serious and sometimes terrifying, published by Blushing Books.  Kelly and Jim, the two main characters, were secondary characters in Arrested by Love.  Though this story stands on its own, if you read Arrested by Love, you'll most likely recognize some of the scenes, since we see a little bit of Kyle and Tiffany in this book, too.

In this excerpt, near the end of Chapter Five, Jim Evans and Kelly Franklin are together at "The Velvet Chains," a BDSM club where they met that evening.  Kelly is receiving some aftercare after a session of intensive medical play she did with Jim that seemed a lot more real than play.  Aftercare is an important part of the BDSM experience.  Both the Dom and the sub seek reassurance from the other.  Jim enjoys holding Kelly, and she likes being in his arms, so this is a quiet period of reflection and getting to know each other. Problem is, when Jim asks Kelly a question she really doesn't want to answer, her evasion serves as an admission she's lied to him.

Normally, a Dom would punish a sub for that infraction, but Jim has told Kelly he'll give her a onetime pass. Before they do anything else, however, he suggests they get to know each other a little better.  He begins by asking her some pertinent questions, which eventually lead to the topic of trust.  When Kelly admits that she probably trusts him more not to hurt her than anyone else, he's pleased, but remains cautious.  He informs her, in no uncertain terms, that he can be a controlling SOB who expects a lot, but he gives back in return.  If she chooses to remain as his sub, he'll expect her to be open and honest with about everything in her life. Even those things she might not want to share, but for the moment he's content to simply know more about what she likes. Curious about her new Dom as well, Kelly asks him about his family. He hesitates for a moment, then admits his younger sister was brutally murdered. Kelly feels terrible and promptly gives him a hug. Hugging her back, he promptly lightens the mood by confessing his desire to catch her murderer is what prompted him to become a detective. Kelly isn't surprised as she tells him he's very good at asking questions.

              "You think?" he asked with a laugh.
            Kelly nodded.  "Uh huh."
            "Well then, where do you work, darlin'?"
            "J.C. Medical."  At his arched eyebrow, she added, "I'm the personal assistant to the Vice-President of Marketing."
            "I see.  So, tell me.  What exactly does a "personal assistant' to a Vice-President at J.C. Medical do?"
            "Nothing exciting, I assure you.  I schedule my boss's meetings, take phone messages for him, do his filing….  Pretty much anything a company executive requires."
            "And does your boss require you to fulfill any duties more personal in nature?"
            Surprised he'd even ask her that question, Kelly smacked him on the shoulder without thinking.  "Hey, what do you think I am?"

Kelly knows she makes a lousy sub.  She has a temper and a mouth that constantly get her into trouble, but she sees something in Jim that makes her want more of the type of mastering only he could give her, except she's not sure she can give him all the honesty he expects in return.

  1. Nice light moment between them Kathryn. Oops, seems Kelly momentarily forgot herself. Wonder what Jim's reaction will be?
