Today I am so pleased to welcome Z. Allora to Joyfully Jay. She has come to share a piece of a short story from her latest release, Lock and Key. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!
I want to thank Joyfully Jay for hosting the final part of Zack Davis’s backstory. Everyone’s path to BDSM is different. This part of his story takes place the night before Lock and Key begins. I hope you enjoy. Hugs, Z.
Zack crashed onto his hotel bed. Damn, it was good to lay flat! Working as a roadie was good but exhausting.
Though he wished his boss could be convinced Zack didn’t want special treatment just because his brother was the drummer. Whatever! Tomorrow he was assigned to be the sound check runner. If the band needed anything it was his job to play fetch and he was happy to do so.
His roommate had gone out drinking with the crew. Having no desire to watch the crew get shitfaced as he sipped soda, he opted for a night in.
He grabbed his laptop off the nightstand. Zack let his fingers lead him back to a familiar site. Scrolled across the top of the page was:
Entwined… where BDSM dreams become reality.
Entwined was a network of swanky BDSM clubs across the USA. From what he’d read they seemed to be a tight knit community that focused on education and play. The club in Albany had a cool French dungeon theme. They didn’t serve alcohol so the age requirement was eighteen.
He wanted to join immediately and make his BDSM dreams reality. Damn! It would be incredible to be with real people instead of names in the cyber void. To actually be a part of a scene…
Ah, but the price tag was hefty for the initial membership fee. He’d done some calculations and he’d be able to afford it at the end of the year.
For now Zack would focus on work and then he’d join Entwined and make his BDSM dreams his reality.
Rejected. Heartbroken. Devastated.
Zack Davis wanted to serve only one man, Andrew Nikeman. He was denied because Andrew thought he was too young and because their brothers were together. So Zack crushed his submissive tendencies and focused on being the perfect Dom, giving every sub he played with something he couldn’t have.
After years of denying his submissive side, Entwined’s charity auction “Are you Dom Enough to be a sub?” gives Zack an excuse to get a little of what he’s always craved.
Andrew doesn’t know when his infatuation turned into more, but it kills him to see Zack with a constant parade of submissives. He’d refused to jeopardize his brother’s relationship or become Zack’s regret; however, Zack isn’t a kid anymore, and his brother’s relationship is unbreakable. Now Zack’s popularity and success as a Dom might ruin Andrew’s dreams of collaring him, but he can’t wait any longer to confess his feelings or he risks losing the man he loves forever.
