When you read the blurb for Exploration, you may notice the absence of four little letters. While the book does involve a couple exploring the BDSM lifestyle, I knew it wouldn’t live up to typical reader expectations of what a BDSM romance should be. Faced with the decision of whether to write in more kinky sex or write the story as I saw it, I chose the latter.

One thing you hear a lot in the BDSM community is the reminder that there isn’t one true way. Kink means different things to different people, and because of that, their experiences are unique. I wanted to show that in Exploration as well. Frankie and Calvin skip over a lot of the steps the fictional world has taught us must be present. There is no contract, no sitting down to discuss hard limits, etc. Why? Because sometimes, all of that can be overwhelming when you’re starting out. And as long as you remember the three rules of kink, that’s okay. Really, it is.

Whenever I dive into anything kinky, I talk to my mentors. Real life Doms and subs who are willing to give me their opinions and have no problem telling me if I’m dead wrong. Why? Because at the end of the day, I need to balance real life with fantasy. A sub who can’t call his Dom “Master” or “Sir” isn’t less of a sub because he’s not there. A Dom who admits his insecurities isn’t weak. And there’s no benchmark for how much power exchange you need before a vanilla relationship turns kinky.

Even the series name, Kinky in the City, was carefully chosen. Not every book will have BDSM in it, but there will be kink involved in each book. Challenge, which will be coming out soon, has a character who loves wearing lingerie and makeup, but if they ever dipped into the BDSM world, he would be classified as a switch. As much as he loves taking care of his man, sometimes that means telling him exactly what to do in the bedroom. And Discovery, the third book, has an ace character who’s not only realizing he is capable of attraction and love, but also that he needs a good, loving Daddy to take care of him.

I don’t know yet how long this series will go on, but I will say I’m still in love with exploring the emotional and psychological side of kink. Right now, I’ll say I’m going to keep writing until I fall out of love with kink.

Blurb

REVEAL-COVER-ExplorationThe reluctant manager of his family’s restaurant, Frankie attempts to live up to the legacy of his father and grandfather. Running a business that isn’t his passion and trying to do it without asking for help leaves him turning to less-than-legal means when he wants to surrender control.

Newly divorced, Calvin no longer lives in the closet, leaving him searching for what he most desires- control. So when he finds Frankie on his knees in the back room of a local bar, Calvin sees the sub he’s only ever fantasized about having.

Can Calvin find the confidence to explore his dominant side while showing his younger roommate that submission isn’t only about whips and pain?
