Convinced that she might drive herself crazy if she
didn’t confront Holt about his fixation with spanking
soon, Kaelyn lifted her head from where she had been
resting it against his shoulder.
“Holt,” she said.
At the sound of his name, Holt turned his head to look
at her and she felt her resolve falter a little when those
gorgeous blue eyes of his met hers. Determined to
finally talk to him about the whole spanking issue,
however, she took a deep breath and forced herself to
“I need to ask you something, and I want you to
answer me honestly.”
Picking up the remote, he lowered the sound on the
television before he nodded. “Sure, babe, go ahead.”

Taking Her Friend's Advice
Kaelyn hesitated. The words had seemed so much easier when she’d been practicing them in
her head, she thought. “I...uhm...”
Flushing, she got to her feet and walked around the coffee table to stand in front of it before
turning back around to find Holt leaning forward on the couch, his forearms resting on his
With a sigh, Kaelyn ran a hand through her long hair, pushing it back from her face. “I’m not
sure how to even ask you this, probably because if I’m wrong, I’m going to be really
embarrassed, so I’m just going to come right out and say it.”
His brow furrowing, Holt eyed her warily. “Okay, but you’re starting to worry me,” he said
slowly. “What’s this about?”
She took a deep breath. “Are you into spanking?”
His eyes widened in surprise at the question, and Kaelyn hurried on before he could answer.
“Don’t try to deny it, Holt,” she warned him. “You’re constantly making comments about my
bottom, and you’re pretty obvious about touching me there all the time. And then, the other
night, you smacked me on the ass while we were making love. And I suspect that you
probably would have continued to do it if I hadn’t tensed up, so don’t try to deny it.”
Holt’s eyes narrowed, his earlier promise not to push Kaelyn on the subject forgotten at the
confrontational tone in her voice. “I wasn’t going to deny it,” he told her, getting to his feet
and folding his arms over his chest. In the tiny living room, he stood no more than a hand’s
length from her. “You have a very spankable ass, and I get turned on every time I think about
putting you over my knee. So, to answer your question, yes, I’m into spanking.”
Kaelyn felt herself blush at the picture his words had created in her mind. She had known
the answer to her question before she had even asked it, of course, but it was still shocking to
hear him admit it so blatantly. “Well, I’m not!” she told him hotly.
He lifted a brow. “How do you know you’re not?” he countered. “Have you ever been
Her color deepened. Dammit, why did she blush so easily? “Of course not!”
His mouth quirked. “Then how do you know that you don’t like it?”
“I don’t have to try something to know I don’t like it!” she shot back, lifting her chin.
Holt shrugged. “Maybe not,” he agreed. “But you don’t know what you’re missing out on by
not at least giving it a try. Sometimes, people decide in advance that they’re not going to like
something for any number of reasons.” Taking a step closer to her, he reached up to gently
cup her jaw. “But it doesn’t have to be like that. Spanking can be a very erotic experience.”
His voice was so soft that it was like velvet, and Kaelyn felt her traitorous pulse skip a beat.
For some reason, she felt a sudden urge to give into his calm logic, but she knew that she
couldn’t do that. And yet, it was all she could do to make herself disagree with him.
“Apparently, we have completely different definitions of erotic. I don’t see how getting
smacked on the ass can be anything other than painful,” she said stubbornly.
He gazed down at her with those impossibly blue eyes of his. “Then let me show you,” he said,
a small smile quirking his mouth.
Alarmed, she took a step back. “No!”
Holt’s jaw tightened as he folded his arms across his broad chest again. “Why not?” he
demanded. “Afraid that I’ll prove you wrong and that you’ll actually discover you enjoy being
“Of course not!” Kaelyn couldn’t believe this! She and Holt were having their first fight, and
it was about something as ridiculous as him wanting to spank her.
He regarded her in silence for a moment. “Or maybe you don’t want me to spank you because
you’re too much of a control freak.”
She blinked. “I am not!” She had no idea where that had come from. One second they had
been talking about spanking, and now he was accusing her of being a control freak.
Holt lifted a brow. “Really?” he said. “That’s what spanking is all about, giving up a little bit
of control. So, prove that you don’t have to be in control all the time. Agree to a spanking.”
Kaelyn stared at him aghast, wondering if she’d heard correctly. It was almost like he was
The corner of his mouth quirked. “If you enjoy being spanked, then we can incorporate it
into our sex life whenever we like.”
Her eyes narrowed. Two could play at this game, she thought. “And if I don’t?”
He shrugged. “If you don’t, then I promise that I’ll never bring it up again, and your bottom
will be considered completely off limits.”
Kaelyn considered his words. There it was. All she had to do was agree to this one spanking,
and then they would finally be able to put an end to this ridiculousness. She supposed that
she knew this was what would have to happen the moment she had brought it up. It might
cause some friction between them for awhile, but at least it would be done with.
“Okay,” she said after a moment. “I’ll submit to a spanking. But I won’t like it.”
“We’ll see,” was all he said.
Holt was really enjoying this, Kaelyn thought, having an almost irresistible urge to berate him
about the smug look on his handsome face. But she hadn’t brought this up because she
wanted to fight with him, she reminded herself. She had to stay in control of her emotions so
they could get past this. So, she simply lifted her chin and leveled her gaze at him. “Let’s get
it over with then,” she said stiffly.
To her surprise, her boyfriend chuckled. “Uh-uh,” he said with a shake of his head. “You’re
so tense right now that you wouldn’t be able to enjoy a spanking even if you wanted to.”
Her brow furrowed in confusion. “That’s ridiculous! You either like it or you don’t!”
Holt was still smiling as he reached out to tuck a strand of hair behind her ear. “Spanking is
like good sex; it’s best when there’s a little bit of anticipation. So, we’ll do it on Friday,” he
said. “We’ll have dinner at my place, and then watch a movie or something first. I want to
make sure that you’re nice and relaxed.”
Relaxed? Kaelyn thought. Was he kidding? There was no way she was going to be relaxed,
especially not when she had to wait all week for him to spank her. She almost told him right
then to forget about the whole thing, but one look at Holt’s face told her that he was waiting
for her to do just that.
“Fine! We’ll do it Friday, then,” she muttered, giving him a dark look. “I can hardly wait.”
Holt’s mouth quirked. “Me, either,” he said, and the only difference was that he actually
