On His Knees (Blasphemy #4) by Laura Kaye

 

 

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…

 EXCERPT

Breathing hard and shaking with arousal, Alex eased the two of them down to the floor so that he could hold Jamie in his arms. “Come here, Jamie. Rest on me.”

 

Jamie’s sluggish movements revealed that he was still riding the physical and emotional waves of the scene, so Alex helped turn him until he was cradled against his chest. And then Jamie released a breath that resounded with such utter contentment that it reached inside Alex’s chest.

 

Christ. Christ. The way Jamie had taken his beating. The way he’d reveled in the pain of it. Alex’s twisted sadist heart was flying, because what they’d just shared had been perfection.

 

“Talk to me. Are you okay?” Alex asked, his gaze raking over the relaxed lines of the sub’s handsome face and the almost sleepy appearance of his gray eyes. Before, he’d thought Jamie hot. Now, seeing him totally sated because of the pain Alex had given him, he thought him beautiful.

 

“I—I have never felt better in my whole life.” His voice was little more than a raw scrape, but the emotion behind the words came through crystal fucking clear. “All this time…all this time I thought something was wrong with me. When I just needed this.” Those gray eyes slanted up at him. “And you.”

 

Damn if the guy wasn’t riding pretty damn close to subspace, a euphoric altered state of mind that some submissives achieved due to the overwhelming rush of endorphins and adrenaline that spiked and receded during intense BDSM scenes. So Alex wasn’t going to take the adoration in that steel gaze too much to heart.

 

“You handled that so perfectly,” Alex said, wiping away the wetness of tears or sweat—or both—from Jamie’s face. Doing so emphasized the warm heat still filling Alex’s palm. He freaking relished it and the quiet, calm peace in his mind that he hadn’t felt in far too long.

 

“I did?” When Alex nodded, Jamie smiled. “Thank you.” His lids sagged, then snapped back open. “Thank you, Sir.”

 

Alex chuckled. “How was the intensity of that for you, Jamie? Did you feel you were nearing your limit?”

 

He shook his head. “Even though it hurt and I started to feel…shattered, I was green. I was green the whole time.”

 

Jesus. Master Alex brought Jamie’s cuffed hand to his mouth and kissed his knuckles. “I think you can switch out the light blue ribbon for the dark.”

 

Jamie’s eyes went wide, like Alex had just surprised him with a gift. “Really, Sir?”

 

See? There was just no questioning the sincerity of Jamie’s pleasure, the intensity of his satisfaction, nor how profoundly experiencing his first sadomasochistic scene had affected him. Still affected him. And, in turn, Alex, too. Because when had he last seen such unadulterated elation? When had he last witnessed such a pure example of the freeing power of this lifestyle? When had anyone he’d played with recently found so much of themselves in a scene?

On His Knees by Laura Kaye

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the fourth instalment in Laura Kaye’s Blasphemy series. Centred around an exclusive private members BDSM club co-owned by 12 Master Dominants. This story centres on Alex McGarry; a Psychiatrist by day, but Master Alex inside the club. Something is missing for Alex though, he loves to dominate and is the perfect sadist, but he’s restless and the club is not sating him, and watching his friends pair up and find that perfect someone is just a little hard to watch as that’s exactly what Alex is craving, but what are the odds that he’ll find someone who’ll share his unique brand of domination?

Enter lawyer Jamie Fielding, who’s finally―at nearly thirty years old―coming to the realisation that he harbours submissive traits and loves the bite of pain. It takes a visit to his tattooist to make him see that this is something he craves and can’t ignore the calling much longer. I loved the fact that Jamie’s tattooist was Jeremy Rixey from the authors Hard Ink series which I loved, it was great to see how Jeremy and his fiancée Charlie Merritt are getting on and that Jeremy still sports his hilarious (and often very rude) pun t-shirts.

Jeremy points Jamie toward Blasphemy and to a coming together of Alex and Jamie. Thing is though, Jamie’s a complete newbie, never even been with a man before and although he settles in like a duck to water, Alex doesn’t need anyone that green but the more he gets to know Jamie, the more he realises how perfect he is and what they could have together.

Jamie seemed to fall into the D/s lifestyle quickly, but it was how fast he had sex with a man for the first time which felt a little unbelievable and too easy because he did so without any soul searching or fanfare, it just seemed to be skated over. Also, as they begin to fall deeper, something happens and Alex pulls away and wants nothing to do with Jamie. I thought this was very harsh of Alex considering how new everything was to Jamie; dating a guy and the whole BDSM lifestyle. It felt like one mistake and poof! you’re history, and even when Jamie tried to be contrite and apologise (this bit was heartbreaking) Alex was still quite hard and stubborn.

On the whole this was a pleasant story of two men finding just exactly what the other needed. The BDSM was descriptive and well researched and the scenes were hot. It’s a good addition to the series apart from a couple of gripes.

On His Knees by Laura Kaye

Okay so as I do, you gotta give credit where credit is due and this cover is a ridiculous delicious #win!

Now on to the journey of Alex and Jamie. Quick and very hot, the spark between these two could be felt from the moment they met. Laura did a phenomenal job evoking that tingle feeling out of me when I read really sexually hot scenes. These two were off the chart.

I’m not a fan of BDSM so I tend to stay away from stories that dig too deep into this lifestyle, but I loved every moment between Master Alex and Jamie. It was done so tastefully and erotically that I didn’t skim a single word! (that’s high praise from me since that’s what I normally do with most BDSM scenes I come across, skim them lol) SO, even if this is not your thing this is a story you will still enjoy.
