    Question of the Week: 
    So today I'm reading the ARC for Beyond Pain by Kit Rocha. It stars the extremely sexy Bren who's a masochist. Don't confuse him for a submissive though, because he's definitely control in the bedroom. He does like a good deal of nail scratching, biting, and is hornier than a drunk college boy in the girl's dorm on campus after he's done with a good ass kicking. This makes me wonder... do you like reading romances where there is a healthy of dose of sadomasochism and/or masochism? Or are you turned off form a book when things get... painful?

    *Apologies for missing this last week, it was a bit crazy! But we are back. :-)

    Crystal L's Answer: 

    Spank that booty! Or not? The issue of sadomasochism and/or masochism doesn't really bother me when reading a book. I think every woman (to some degree) wonders what it would be like for her partner to give her a sexy spanking. They may not always be interested in getting strung up on a St. Andrew's cross and given a good session with whip after reading a good BDSM romance though. Well written scenes with pain play do sometimes get my... ermmm... motor running, and don't bother me in the slightest. On the other hand, I have read some books where it was too much for me. Not enough to put down the book per say, but enough that I'm shaking my head and yelling at said character that's getting whopped on that they are certifiably nuts. But in the end, it's all really about to each their own, right? I can recommend some great reads with pain play though! Cherise Sinclair's This Is Who I Am, Maya Banks Sweet Temptation and Joely Sue Burkhart's Hurt Me So Good. I'm thinking by the time I'm done with Beyond Pain that it would make that recommended list as well. ;D


    1. Just got my copy of BP too and I'm looking forward to it big time.

      I'm cool with everything but spanking. I loathe spanking, there's just something... I dunno it seems kinky in a gross pedo way. *cringe* The one time my man tried an ass smack was the LAST time.

      I do love a biter though. ;)

    2. I don't mind reading about the SM part of BDSM but I don't think I could ever get into the extreme parts of it myself. A little light spanking, etc would be ok but definitely no whips for me :) But I have read and loved 2 of the books that you mentioned there (Cherise Sinclair's and Joely Sue Burkhart's books are both great!

    3. I am a believer in that fine line of pleasure/pain. I don't like to read about pain without the pleasure, that is a no-go for me. But those talented authors like Kallypso and Cherise write those kinds of scenes very well and it doesn't bother me. It really depends on how the author presents it in the story.
