A year ago, my best friend Hal died at the hands of an incompetent “dom.” So I started the Subs Club, a private blog where submissives can review doms and call out the douche bags.
A perfect example of the kind of arrogant asshole I mean? The Disciplinarian. He has a pornstache. He loves meat, stoicism, America, and real discipline. And he thinks subs exist to serve him.
But . . . not everything about him is awful. His Davy Crockett act just seems like a cover for his fear of intimacy, and part of me wants to show him it’s okay to get close to people. And, I mean, sue me, but I have fantasized about real discipline. Not role-play, but like, Dave, you’re gonna be thirty in four years and you still work in a mall; get your ass in gear or I’ll spank it.
Not that I’d ever trust anyone with that kind of control.
I’m gonna redefine “battle of wills” for the Disciplinarian. Or I’m gonna bone him. It’s hard to say.
Heaven! I was in heaven reading this book! Punishment and domestic discipline combined with humor?? Um, of COURSE I loved this one!
This is my ninth book by the talented J.A. Rock and my first 5-star for her. I think she simply hit it out of the park.
I have very specific tastes when it comes to my kinky books. I don't consider myself a BDSM reader because whips and chains do next to nothing for me. I'm not super into subspace,and a "yes sir" "no sir" type of MC sometimes doesn't work for me. What I'm really, REALLY into is discipline. I adore domestic discipline books, especially when there is a bratty sub. Like, really adore. I also love (looooooove) humiliation kink and daddy kink, which this book sort of lightly touched upon ((view spoiler)[loved the enema kink scene!! (hide spoiler)]). Anyway, this book falls in my BDSM comfort zone, and I'm sure that is one of the reasons that I loved it so much.
I'm not one for a lot of pictures or gifs in my reviews, but D, the disciplinarian, WAS RON SWANSON. I'm not even talking kind of, or a little bit, I'm talking WAS. Personality, looks, everything. Where I sort of thought that Nick Offerman was hot before (and though I never really considered Teddy Roosevelt hot... I mean, who does??), I now want to have a threesome with both of them. Anytime, fellas.
I've never found a mustache hot before, but this book... it's changed me. I don't think I can ever go back...
Awesome facial hair aside, the best part of this book was the humor. J.A. Rock is freakin' funny.
He set the potty-chair next to the toilet and the towels on top of a rack by the door.
I was liking this less and less. "Oh, I forgot to tell you, Sir. I am actually potty trained."
I read this line in bed next to my husband and was literally shaking with silent laughter, so much so that he kicked me out of bed for keeping him awake.
Miles grumbled. "Well, stick to hot sauce or ginger in the future if you're figging."
Kamen strummed his guitar, coming up with the chords for "Killing Me Softly."
"Figging me softly with hot sauce," he sang over the sounds of justice being served. "figging me so-oftly, with hot sauce."
The whole book is so funny. I'm seriously going to miss David's voice now that this book is done and another MC takes over the next book. He was a one-of-a-kind type of character, and I'll think of him for a long time to come.
But what makes this book so great is that it isn't just fun with no substance, it felt real and deep and emotional, too. It was all that and more, and I could read about the MCs in this book for ages.
If your reading tastes are like mine and you are a J.A. Rock fan, this isn't a book that you can miss. It is must read material for all lovers of a certain type of BDSM, and even if you aren't sure if it is something you would like, I think it's worth a try. This was J.A. Rock at her finest, and even though Pain Slut makes me nervous, I can't stop reading this series.
