Today I am so pleased to welcome K.M.Neuhold to Joyfully Jay. K.M. has come to talk to us about her latest release, Heel (Working Out the Kinks, 2). Please join me in giving her a big welcome!

Sweet Puppy play is my absolute obsession. After I finished writing Stay, I couldn’t wait to get around to Adrian’s story because he was a pup in desperate need of an HEA.

Adrian is a playful, sassy man with a master who doesn’t come close to deserving him. After a violent encounter, Adrian gets the courage to leave. With no where to go, he turns to the Dom who saved him before, who he’s always trusted above anyone else. Healing won’t happen overnight, but with Vale at his side, Adrian can conquer anything.


The kiss is so unexpected and so god damn sweet I couldn’t stop the moan that falls from my lips if my life depended on it. As soon as my lips part, Adrian takes full advantage, slipping his tongue inside my mouth, hot and needy and everything I never let myself dream of.

My cock aches painfully in the confines of my jeans as he climbs onto my lap, bold as all hell, never breaking the kiss. His slender body moves against mine as he grinds himself shamelessly, addicting little whimpers falling from his lips onto mine. I could die here a happy man with this little pup in my arms. It’s impossible to remember all the reasons I know he can’t be mine when our tongues are tangling, and his hard cock is pressed against me through our layers of clothes.

It’s over too soon, Adrian pulling back and shooting me a little smirk.

“Thank you for painting my nails, ” he says primly, as if he wasn’t nearly licking my tonsils two seconds ago.

“You’re welcome,” I say, my voice sounding rough even to my own ears.

He gets up from the couch, my eyes glued to every step that carries him out of the room, leaving me with a hurricane of thoughts and emotions raging inside me. Not the least of which is the desire to go after him and play with fire.


I’ve never thought of calling a man Daddy before, but I can’t think of a word that fits Vale better. He’s my Daddy and I’m his pup.

Broken and bruised, there’s nothing I won’t do to protect Adrian. I picked him up and made him whole before and I’ll do it again. Adrian is a sweet pup with a smile full of sunshine and a heart made for love. A sweet pup needs a gentle hand, and that’s exactly what I intend to give him.

There’s nothing quite like slipping an expensive pair of high heels onto Adrian’s feet and watching him light up. If he wants a fairytale, I’ll happily be his Prince Charming.

*** Heel is the second book in the Working Out the Kinks series but can be read as a stand alone. This book contains a scene of domestic violence. This book also contains an adorable man who loves to be a puppy, fabulous high heels, and the Happily Ever After Adrian deserves.


Author K.M. Neuhold is a complete romance junkie, a total sap in every way. She started her journey as an author in new adult, MF romance, but after a chance reading of an MM book she was completely hooked on everything about lovely- and sometimes damaged- men finding their Happily Ever After together. She has a strong passion for writing characters with a lot of heart and soul, and a bit of humor as well. And she fully admits that her OCD tendencies of making sure every side character has a full backstory will likely always lead to every book having a spin-off or series. When she’s not writing she’s a lion tamer, an astronaut, and a superhero…just kidding, she’s likely watching Netflix and snuggling with her husky while her amazing husband brings her coffee.
