Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…
Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…
About ON HIS KNEES (Blasphemy #5)
Getting on his knees makes him question everything…and want even more…
Another failed relationship has lawyer Jamie Fielding confronting the truth-he’ll never be satisfied with any woman until he admits what he needs…to submit and to be used-hard. When a friend invites him to the exclusive Blasphemy club, Jamie is stunned to find everything he ever wanted-in the fierce, ruthless hands of a man.
Psychiatrist Alex McGarry will play with anyone who craves his rough brand of domination, but what he really wants is to settle down. Which makes the submissive male he meets at his club a bad idea-the man might be hot as hell but he’s also new to everything Alex has to offer. Except that doesn’t keep them from coming together again and again, sating every one of their darkest desires.
Master Alex sets Jamie’s whole world on fire and makes him question everything-and that’s good. Because Alex won’t tolerate hiding what they have for long and he wants much more than just having Jamie on his knees…
ORDER ON HIS KNEES
I haven’t read many BDSM stories where the characters’ kink and sexual lifestyle focuses on sadism and/or masochism, so in a way, as Jamie Fielding was being introduced to the fetish community of Blasphemy, particularly those Masters who get off on their submissives’ pain and how much they can make ‘it hurt so good’ for the subs in their care,’ Master Alex’s teachings also opened my eyes to the sexual gratification that can be found in physical pain and degradation, and while I can say I am wholeheartedly not a sadist or a masochist, Alex and Jamie’s story not only educated me about an aspect of BDSM that I didn’t have much insight in, but it also illustrated how discovering what a person wants and needs as well as finding where he belongs is worth all of the past disconnects and broken relationships experienced.
Blasphemy is quite the sexual playground, and what I love most about Laura Kaye’s series is that she presents all different types of kink that occurs in the club and what the people involved in those varying sexual lifestyles find necessary and freeing about them. And while my knowledge of BDSM is based on fictional stories and characters, it’s clear that this world of non-vanilla sex allows people to feel liberated and at home in their own body because the various types of kink allow them the release and the connection that they can only find when they are with like-minded sexual beings.
The BDSM’s lifestyle carters to those who desire to move beyond vanilla sex and find their sexual niche, for lack of a better term, and in On His Knees, Jamie and Alex’s story teaches readers and the characters themselves that no one’s judgment or negative reactions should deter people from accepting who they are and what they need and based on how Jamie reacts to the sexual journey that Master Alex takes him on as well as the ideas Jamie discovers about himself just by being in an environment that fits every part of him, there is no denying how essential and life-changing Alex and Jamie’s connection is for both of them, and when it comes down to it, a person’s life is his own and the path he travels is up to his wants and his needs, NOONE ELSE should matter.
I can’t review On His Knees without mentioning how wrecked the last part of the book had me…I don’t want to spoil anything for readers but I don’t think I’ve ever cried as hard as I did when Jamie lays himself bare and kneels for his Master in a show of contrition. Jamie’s actions/words really did a number on my heart because Laura Kaye captured the emotional upheaval Jamie was experiencing and the steps he took to make things right in such a way that I could feel Jamie’s anguish and devastation and I wanted and needed him to be healed, in a way, that would never bring him that kind of pain again.
4.5 Poison Apples
Master Alex heaved a breath and peered down at Jamie with a stern, narrowed gaze. “What am I going to do with you, my little masochist?”
“Anything you want, Sir.” The response had come right from the gut. Out of his mouth before he’d even debated whether Alex had meant the question rhetorically.
“Anything I want. Indeed.” He tilted his head. “Except you’re new to all of this. So I worry-”
“No, please,” Jamie blurted out, his hands going to Alex’s knees. “Don’t worry. Don’t be easy. I want to try everything. Do everything. And I want to do it with you.”
A storm erupted across Master Alex’s face and settled into those dark eyes, which raked downward to where Jamie still touched him. And then the next thing Jamie knew, Alex launched himself at him, grabbed him by the neck and shoulder, and took him down flat to his back on the floor.
With one hand tight around Jamie’s throat and his knees pinning his shoulders and upper body, Master Alex loomed over him, his expression mean. “Let me make clear how this works, little boy. I make the decisions. I set the scene. You telling me what to do is called topping from the bottom. And I won’t have it. Do it again and it’ll earn you a red ass you won’t be able to sit on for days.”
Jesus fucking Christ. Yes. Yes. Fucking yes.
That was probably not the reaction he was supposed to have. And a little voice in the back of his head whispered that there was something seriously wrong with him for feeling sheer exhilaration instead of fear-to say nothing of the way his pulse throbbed in his rock-hard cock. And Jamie certainly didn’t want to have made Alex feel disrespected.
But Jesus fucking yes.
He swallowed hard, his throat having to work against the tight grip of Master Alex’s hand. “I’m sorry, Sir.”
Master Alex barreled on. “You’re so goddamned sure you can handle this. You don’t even know. I’m going to use you and abuse you. I’m going to hurt you. And I’m going to get off on it.”
Jamie’s cock jerked at the decadent words, and Jesus how the dark promise in them reached out to some secret, hidden place inside him. “I don’t know…but I want to.”
“Why? Why are you here? What do you want out of this? Why the fuck do you want the pain I’m capable of causing?” That grip tightened, cutting off more of Jamie’s air.
He grimaced and choked. “My…my whole life. I can’t-I haven’t been able to…feel. And I…want to finally feel something, Sir. I need it. And I want to please…you,” he managed.
Master Alex leaned in, that handsome face so fucking harsh. “Oh, I’ll make you feel something, boy. I’ll light you up good.”
God, if Alex was capable of turning his mind and body on so strongly with just two sentences, Jamie almost couldn’t imagine what it might feel like for the man to actually make good on the promises. What if I can’t handle it?
But what if I can?
