Story Rating: 4.5 out of 5 paddles
Sting Factor (kink): 5 out of 5
As a sub, Shara wants to prove to herself that she’s the one who is really in control. Shara is about to get a paddling, one that will test her pain threshold and take her to new levels. The stud-covered paddle will undoubtedly hurt, but she’s determined to show her Dom, John, that she can take whatever he can give her. John is determined to show Shara that saying their safe word when she can’t take any more is an act of trust, not one of her being weak. Her safety is his primary concern and he will stop play if he feels she’s approaching the point where even subspace won’t save her. Together they go on a journey of discovery, where Shara battles with relinquishing that final nugget of herself she’s always held back. Will she trust him enough to admit he was right and she was wrong?
Hot! I love this story and the message it sends. Shara has wanted to test her pain threshold and tonight she gets to do just that. John is worried that she will not safe word if the pain becomes too much.
The chemistry between Shara and John was explosive. The sex scenes were hot. I enjoyed the message the short story seemed to tell at the same time. Having your Dom know you will safe word if it’s necessary is an important part of safe play.
The writing was great. The story was well formed. At forty-five pages, this was a great short story that packs a punch.
