Begin Again (Bound to You book one) by Jane Henry
Publisher: Blushing Books
Released: February 16, 2016
Genre: Contemporary D/s romance
Life is good for Meredith and her husband Paolo, when a terrible car accident leaves Paolo disabled. As he distances himself emotionally, Meredith seeks consolation in her fantasy world. Escaping into her erotic romance books not only helps keep the loneliness at bay, but also awakens in her a curiosity about the Dominant/submissive lifestyle.
The day she stumbles upon a website forum of actual submissives and dominants, her life is forever changed. These are not characters created by authors. They are real people who engage in real life dominance and submission. As her knowledge grows, she learns there is one question only she can answer—is she truly submissive, or is the fantasy better left on the pages of a book?
In a last ditch effort to discover who she really is, Meredith agrees to pledge her obedience to an anonymous on-line Dom. She convinces herself it can't be considered cheating if her Dom is just a faceless entity in cyberspace. But the first time she's given an order, it all becomes too real. Will her devotion to please her on-line Dom take precedence over her flesh and blood husband? Will Meredith's journey of self-discovery destroy their marriage or will they somehow find a way to begin again?
He kissed her so hard, so passionately, so forcefully, she felt as if she could hardly breathe. He continued to pull her head back, the sharp tingle of her hair being pulled causing a quick spike of excitement to thrill through her core. She had no choice but to submit as his tongue plundered her mouth. This was no make-out session. This was no good-night kiss. This was taking what belonged to him.
His hands roamed her body, shoving the t-shirt she'd worn to bed up as his hands grabbed her breasts so hard it hurt. Suddenly, his mouth was gone, he was pushing up, his hands on her clothes, tearing them off forcefully, and she lay bare before him, eyes wide.
Part of her was excited. But part of her was afraid. They'd had rough sex before. He was always somewhat dominant in bed. But this was different. Why was he being so rough? Why hadn't he said a word to her? She realized as her eyes adjusted to the light, that he was still dressed, wearing a t-shirt and jeans. Somehow, being naked next to him as he hovered over her fully clothed made her feel even more vulnerable.
Then he was back, the weight of his body pushing her into the mattress as he took both her hands in his strong ones and pinned them over her head. Oh, God. She loved when he did that. Holding both of her hands in one of his, still pinned down, his other hand reached down and squeezed her breast. She gave a cry of pain and he stopped, pinching her nipple, then letting it go, first one breast then the other, alternating sharp tugs and pinches with softer caresses.
His mouth came back down on her, plunging in, pushing her lips apart so hard it hurt, then his mouth was gone, and she found herself longing to have him back. His lips traveled to her neck and she gasped as she felt a prickle. What the hell was he doing? She felt him nip, a sharp spike of pain shooting down her spine, then the sensation of warm arousal as he licked where he nipped.
Oh my God.
Still, he said not a word.
His mouth traveled the length of her body, down her neck, nipping and licking, down to her breasts where he teased her nipples with his tongue until she thought she'd explode, down to her waist, then down between her legs. She gasped when she felt his mouth on her, her own hands now released and fisted in his hair. He froze.
He rose, taking her hands in his again, he pinned them down above her head. He traveled back down between her legs, and involuntarily her hands lifted again as his tongue sent spasms through her body. She yelped as his hand came down on her upper thigh with a stinging swat. He took her hands and pinned them above her again, emphasizing his silent demand with another sharp spank.
She got the message.
What the hell had gotten into him?
She didn't move her hands.
He'd just spanked her?
