#SPeekSunday - 1/4/15 - A Dom's Dilemma - The road to building trust can be filled with potholes #BDSM #Spanking

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

It's Sneak Peek Sunday again and 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.  Kelly tells him her parents were killed in a 'break-in gone bad,.' and admits she was often chastised by the nuns.  However, when Jim asks what Kelly did once she left the orphanage, rather than answer she turns the tables by asking him how he learned so much about giving medical examinations and why he insisted upon using restraints on her.  He gives her a little bit of his history then admits he uses restraints to build trust.  To illustrate his point, he says, "I suspect if I told you I needed to give you another enema, you wouldn't be happy about it, but the notion wouldn't send you into a fit of hysterics, either.  Would it?" Though his question fills Kelly with great unease, she agrees to avoid an argument.

            "Good.  Can you see the difference in your attitude now, versus how you felt when I first told you what I intended to do?"
            Kelly considered his question for a moment, and realized he was right.  She might not like the things he wanted to do, but even if doing them still disturbed her, she didn't think he would ever purposefully try to hurt, humiliate or embarrass her.  And that was a big step toward building trust, since a lot of Doms enjoyed humiliating their subs.  Mike certainly did.
            And as much as Kelly liked Kyle, she doubted she'd ever let him do what Master James had so masterfully done to her tonight.  And she'd only met this new Dom a few hours ago.
            "You're doin' an awful lot of thinkin' for a simple question, darlin'."
            She smiled up at him.  "I was just admitting to myself that you're right.  I probably trust you more than anyone else not to hurt me."
            "Pleased to hear it.  I know I can be a strict and controllin' SOB, especially in the beginning, and that can be a bit scary.  I demand a lot, but I give lots back in return.  I will warn you now, Kelly, that as my sub you won't be allowed much personal freedom or privacy.  I'll expect you to be honest and open with me about everythin' in your life.  Past, current and future.  Even those things you might find difficult to share."

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 from her.
