He wants to dominate me…to discipline me. He wants me to call him Daddy…
I’ve always taken care of myself–worked hard to become king of the courtroom and excel in the cutthroat business of winning cases. I’m fierce…brutal…confident. I’m a lie. Underneath my armor, I’m drowning, losing myself under the weight of life. At thirty-three years old, I should be able to handle the pressure.
My neighbor Kieran sees past my spotless suits and manufactured control to the real Jared. The one who secretly craves being dominated, to serve, and to give up control–not just in the bedroom, but in every aspect of my personal life.
I can’t want this…but I do… When I’m under Kieran’s command–spanked, rewarded and caged–I’m free. With Kieran’s care and guidance, my mind is unburdened as my body soars to new heights, and Kieran becomes what we both need him to be: Daddy.
It’s a journey of dominance and submission–of rules, schedules, security and discipline. He opens my world, teaches me, changes me…but he doesn’t let me in. It’s temporary, Daddy tells me, and I’d be wise to remember that, so I don’t get hurt.
Warning: Jared’s Evolution contains BDSM elements, domestic discipline, spanking, and daddy kink–without age play–between two consenting adults. If any of those things offend you, reading this book might not be a good idea.
Jared’s Evolution is part of the Desires Unleashed collection. Some books in this collection will have darker themes. Please be aware Desires Unleashed are er*tic and not your typical Riley Hart romance. You can expect the mental and emotional journey to be led by the physical/s*xual moments–which will be intense, frequent and kinky.
**TCO Note: If you would like to read a little more about Riley Hart’s own evolution in writing this book, check out our exclusive interview with her here.
I have read a lot of BDSM books. From the fairly tame to the deliciously filthy. BDSM is a huge spectrum of kink, and while many think they “know” BDSM because of a certain main stream series really have no idea. Anyway, of all of the books I have read, I have never read Daddy kink. Even after reading this book and eagerly awaiting the second, I don’t think I will seek it out. But that is a testament to this book. It’s really good.
If you are looking for romance- this isn’t it. If you are looking for a HEA type book- go elsewhere. But if you want to delve into the minds of these men- pick it up!
Firstly, the relationship aspect of the story is a slow start. By design. Keiran is a man who knows what he wants. And to get it, he is incredibly patient and methodical. It almost seems as if he is grooming Jared, but Jared participates willingly,
We, the reader, learns as Jared learns. Keiran explains everything to him. They discuss, they are straight forward and they are honest. Safe, sane, consensual. The rules all participants of BDSM should live by.
Jared is hesitant. How could he not be? He isn’t really completely out of the closet. Relationships in any form are a foreign concept to him. He is powerful in his career as a lawyer. This is the antithesis of everything he knows.
There is a lot of introspection on his part. Keiran nudges those thoughts along. “Is that what you think or what society says you should think?” Which made me stop and think.
This book is a journey and I am eager to read book 2!
