Today I am so pleased to welcome S.C. Wynne to Joyfully Jay. S.C. has come to share an exclusive excerpt with us from her latest release, Painful Lessons. She has also brought along…. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!
“Will you forgive me?” His face was hard to see in the dark room, but his voice was emotional and earnest. “It would kill me if you didn’t want to see me ever again because I was so stupid and weak.”
Amazingly enough I began to feel bad that I had upset him so much. The glide of his hands on my naked flesh began to awaken my need for his approval again, and unbelievably my cock semihardened against my thigh. He sighed, and I knew he’d noticed, but he made no move to touch me sexually.
“It’s okay,” I whispered finally. After all, this was Jeremy, the one who listened to my silly stories for hours and smiled at me as if I were interesting and amusing.
“Oh, thank goodness.” He slumped, and his voice was like velvet. “Remember I said it was important to have self-control earlier?”
I nodded, and he continued.
“Because I knew that you would tempt me beyond my usual boundaries. You’re so beautiful and special to me.”
Even after his rough treatment of me, I fell back into the pattern of wanting to remain important to him. During our months of lessons together, he’d become a source of emotional affirmation for me. He was affectionate and nurturing during our math days, and I’d begun to rely on his opinion of me to help feel self-worth. It was unfortunate for me, I guess, that no one else was feeding that need in me at the time.
And it wasn’t like he’d done anything really wrong. It wasn’t like he’d pulled out whips and chains and tortured me. He’d just been a little more sexually aggressive than I’d expected. Rough sex was nothing new. Lots of people enjoyed a hard fuck now and then, but maybe naive guys like me weren’t experienced enough to appreciate it. He’d obviously thought I was way more seasoned than I was, and I didn’t want to prove him wrong. My thought process only served to make me feel like this entire thing was all my fault somehow.
As a freshman both in love and in college, sometimes there are painful lessons to be learned.
Excited to begin his first year of college, Brett Bridgeworth has just one problem: he sucks at math. Luckily there’s the sensual and mysterious math tutor, Jeremy Price, to help him out. It isn’t long before Jeremy is tutoring Brett in more than just pie charts, but it isn’t until they split up that Brett discovers Jeremy’s twisted, obsessive side.
Sam Hawthorne is two years ahead of Brett, and they share a strong mutual attraction. When Brett breaks it off with Jeremy and gets involved with Sam, disturbing things start happening. It soon becomes obvious that Jeremy isn’t willing to let Brett go without a fight.

S.C. Wynne started writing m/m in 2013 and did look back once. She wanted to say that because it seems everyone’s bio says they never looked back and, well S.C. Wynne is all about the joke. She loves writing m/m and her characters are usually a little jaded, funny and ultimately redeemed through love.
S.C loves red wine, margaritas and Seven and Seven’s. Yes, apparently S.C. Wynne is incredibly thirsty. S.C. Wynne loves the rain and should really live in Seattle but instead has landed in sunny, sunny, unbelievably sunny California. Writing is the best profession she could have chosen because S.C. is a little bit of a control freak. To sit in her pajamas all day and pound the keys of her laptop controlling the every thought and emotion of the characters she invents is a dream come true.
If you’d like to contact S.C. Wynne she is amusing herself on Facebook at all hours of the day or you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
