Jack Hudson is in love with his girlfriend, Morgan Moran, but he is tired of the disrespect he feels she shows him by being late to everything they do together. Having had a wild love life before Morgan, he's scared to show his true self during sex and it's getting pretty boring for him. When Morgan is late to dinner, he puts his foot down and says that is the last time. Next time there will be consequences.
Morgan doesn't really think about why she is late, just that things come up that she can't pass up. Not for a minute does she think Jack will do anything to hurt her, but she is just as bored with their sex life even though she loves him beyond anything. When Jack says he has a surprise for her 30th birthday, Morgan thinks he is going to propose and intentionally is late coming home...three hours late.
Jack has had enough and domestic discipline is how he feels he is going to solve this or the relationship is over. He gives her an ultimatum; take your spanking or we are done. Morgan can't leave him so she takes her spanking and realizes she is being disrespectful. She realizes she liked the spanking, but not how it was brought about. Taking a chance she tells Jack what she feels.
Emboldened by what Morgan tells him he asks if she wants a threesome and she says yes. Thus begins a night of dark passion that they both want, but will the morning bring deep regrets?
I am not a fan of domestic discipline. Mostly because I have never heard of a situation where the woman was the head of the household. Just men and their word is the final say. Even when they make mistakes, they are never taken to task the way the women are, which is what turns me off from these types of books.
While there is a spanking in a domestic discipline way, we never really learn is this is going to be a way of life for them or if this just was the awakening their relationship needed. They do open up to each other and take that openness into the night of unbrittle passion. Being a short story I don't expect every issue to be resolved, but it would have been nice to know what they planned to do after that night.
BDSM and Domestic Discipline are two different things. This novel is not based on BDSM at all, nor just a domestic discipline book. It is a book about two people who love each other, but afraid to reveal their dark desires to each other and unwilling to leave.
A well written short story but short. To get a higher score I would have like to know more about if they were going to continue what the night started or if that was just the catalyst that got them to talk.
