It's Wednesday and that means WIP It Up!!! Today I am sharing another excerpt from my soon to be released (like in a few days) book Cherished. Ethan is managing his friend's BDSM club while he's on vacation. As a kinky guy, he enjoys the job, but when a woman walks up asking for a scene with him he starts to suspect she's not who she's pretending to be.
Ethan quirked an eyebrow at her, his curiosity rising. She'd come to an exclusive BDSM club, sought out the manager—an experienced dominant—and only requested a spanking. Then, when he'd barely warmed her up, she seemed eager for her experience to end.
Something was up, he couldn't quite place his finger on it, but nothing about this seemed right. He held one of her globes in his hand and squeezed, watching the pink flesh turn white under the pressure. When he released, an imprint of his fingers was left against her skin, quickly disappearing back into a uniformed color.
"Over?" he asked, adding a disapproving tone to his voice. "My dear, it's only begun. I thought you needed to be punished?" She'd not said those exact words when he'd spoken with her, but he didn't mind stretching the facts to toy with her now.
"Punished?" she asked, her voice cracking at the last syllable.
He picked up the leather paddle and slid it across her ass. She squeaked and jumped as the cool leather met her hot flesh. "Naughty, naughty girl." A pang of guilt was quickly pushed away. He was teasing her, but he had a suspicion she lied, he couldn't let her out of this unscathed. And he needed to know what her game was.
"No!" she shouted.
He froze, the paddle poised in mid-air, ready to give her a hard whack. Was she safewording?
"I'm not a naughty girl, I don't need to be punished." Unlike before, when her lines had seemed rehearsed, she really was begging now, convincing him to change his mind. The panic in her voice should not have made him hard. He should not feel satisfaction at her unease.
Serena's landed herself the perfect man. He's wealthy, powerful, and an unrelenting Dom. Everything a smart girl with a penchant for kink could want. But a year into their relationship and she's doubting what they really have together. When she confronts him, she's devastated to discover she had the wrong idea from the beginning.
Ethan is back in town to help out his friend manage his BDSM club. The short respite from his life across the country is just the break he needed. But when his troubles end up following him, things become even more complicated than before.
When Serena and Ethan meet, it isn't perfect timing. Serena finds it hard to trust again, but then Ethan shows her what it's like to be cherished. Can they let go of their baggage long enough to find real happiness? Or will their complicated past relationships catch up with them?
