I show her the two silver objects on my palm. Nipple clamps. I apply each one, screwing them firmly into place and giving them a small tug so I know they’re secure. I look up and wait a moment, giving her the chance to say orange or red if she needs to.
Her expression is slightly pained, but she doesn’t speak.
I’m not finished yet. I take out two small metal weights on thin silver chain, and I hook each one to the clamps. The tips of her nipples are an angry pink.
‘Do you want to say anything, Lacey?’
She shakes her head firmly, though her lower lip is caught between her teeth and her gaze is fastened on the other side of the room, as if she’s concentrating hard.
‘That’s wonderful,’ I murmur, tracing her nipples with the tip of a finger. ‘You just stay there.’
I go back to my desk and continue with my work. I don’t look at her, but I’m totally aware of her. She’s breathing more sharply than normally so it must hurt.
Her silent fortitude is like a drug for me. It’s brutish, liking sweet girls in pain, but it fucking makes my dick hard.
I don’t think there has been a Brianna Hale book that I haven’t loved! If you want to dip your toes into the Daddy genre, ‘Control Freak’ is for you!
Once again the author has created two memorable characters in Stian and Lacey. I loved watching these two fall in love (yes, this is a romance!) while exploring their true selves. And this book is emotional! Lacey suffers from an eating disorder and never feels worthy of her smart, older Viking.
Lacey goes to work for Stian Blomqvist as a temp and there is an age gap. But Stian sees something in the innocent Lacey that he must possess. With lots of references to Greek mythology, this story was a sexy, smart and fun read
“There are plenty of people who think they deserve someone saying yes sir and no sir to them, but they have to do something to earn it. Have a presence. Be authoritative. Inspire people to want to do as they direct. Smile at you in a way that makes you want to suck their fingers.”
Their relationship unfolds slowly and Lacey is afraid that she will never be enough for Stian due to her emotional issues. This topic is treated with sensitivity by the author and without unnecessary drama. These two are perfect for each other! But Stian cannot do anything halfway and he is afraid of overwhelming Lacey with his needs.
“Doing thing by halves isn’t my style,” I tell Lacey, loving the feel of her beneath my hands. I can feel how desperately she wants to be happy, and I think I can show her how.
I loved this sexy tale and the writing was, as always, perfection. Brianna Hale writes with intelligence, wit and eroticism and never fails to disappoint! Highly recommend this one
