Batteries Not Included

The Took My Breath Away Blog Tour!

Thanks Kate for hosting the Took My Breath Away Book Blog Tour today!

It’s Day 6 of the Took My Breath Away Book Blog Tour and I’m excited to be on Kate Richards’ Batteries Not Included blog. If you miss any days of the book blog tour, you can find links to them here.

What is the difference between spanking for fun and a domestic discipline relationship anyway? And why does the discipline part make such a difference? These are questions Christian must face and figure out in Took My Breath Away, second in the All They Ever Needed series.

In this snippet, Christian starts to realize there is something there, something he wasn’t sure of yet, but knew he would have to figure out at some point.

“I love spending time with your family,” he finally admitted. “They really care about what I say and think.”

“Mom and Dad are great,” Logan agreed. “But so are your folks.”

Chuckling, Christian pulled back, softly kissing Logan’s lips before he released him. “My parents are wonderful, but there is something different here. When Gregory asks for my opinion on something, he truly wants to know. Kimberly is the same way. It’s nice. Plus I love the way they are together. It’s like they are two pieces of the same puzzle.”

Considering that for a moment, Logan nodded. “That is a great description. It’s the product of their DD relationship. It makes them a part of one another.”

Logan had explained that his parents were in a domestic discipline relationship, but Christian still wasn’t sure what that meant. Surely there had to be more than the spanking thing to make their relationship what it was. He was not quite ready to find out yet.

“All right, so which side of the bed do you sleep on?” he asked to divert the conversation.

Book Description:

Length: Novel
Genre: Gay Spanking Romance
Series: All They Ever Needed

Sometimes taking control is what you need to do and sometimes the best thing you can do is give that control up.

In the summer between Logan’s junior and senior years of college, these two will find out more about each other and themselves than they imagined.

While unhappy to be missing four weeks of Christian’s company, Logan is thrilled to spend a month with his father’s relatives in New York. A naturally gregarious individual, he is used to winning people over and getting things right. Unfortunately, the Mannettes are not what he expects and for the first time in his life, he finds himself seriously doubting who he is.

Christian has regained some of his old self-esteem and is taking on new challenges. Besides growing in the relationship he has with Logan, he takes the time his boyfriend is away to learn more about domestic discipline. He learns a little online but it is actually Gregory, Logan’s father, where he gains most of his information. Including the fact that his natural strength puts him in a leadership position he isn’t expecting.

When Logan returns to a strong, self-assured Christian, it is with complete relief. As discussions turn to domestic discipline and they realize their true roles within their current and future relationship, both of them are able to let their inhibitions go and together their connection grows surprising Logan to an epiphany.

For Thianna D, reading and writing are as important as breathing and far more important than math or science. A storyteller from the time she could speak, she was always making up characters as a kid. As a teenager that turned to sci-fi and fantasy, as an adult to romance. It wasn’t until her fourth decade that she began writing erotic scenes within her stories.

Writing M/M came naturally to her; she wrote her first tale before ever having read one. “There is something about the amazing dynamic between two strong men falling in love and defeating anything thrown at them.” While she had written several BDSM stories involving men, As Natural As Breathing was the first full-length novel involving domestic discipline. In Took My Breath Away, its sequel, Logan and Christian further their relationship in very defining ways.

    • I love this scene, especially the sentence “Surely there had to be more than the spanking thing to make their relationship what it was.” Because it truly sets in motion Christian’s desire to learn more about DD.
