Face down on the bed, her limbs were secured to its four posts. His open
palm came down on her, cracking against heated, tender skin. She wailed,
writhing uselessly against her restraints.
“Please,” she begged, face pressed to the mattress. She clenched as he
circled the bed.
“What did I say would happen if you let that man touch you,” he
snapped. Fear and humiliation burned like a furnace inside her. She deserved
her punishment, every agonizing second of it.
His hand cracked sharply against her skin a second time.
“What did I say?” he demanded.
My nose wrinkled. What the fuck?
Tessa’s wide-eyed face looked at me expectantly. Gingerly, I closed the
book I was holding, placing it carefully on the table between us.
“Yeah, I don’t know about this one, Tess. Not really my thing, you

Half was enough.
I eyed the book like it was going to jump up and bite me.
“I’m sure the writer did a great job,” I said, smiling weakly, reaching for

a little too spicy. This one is more tame,” Tessa reported.
“Tame?” I scoffed, reaching for the book. Cracking it open to a random
page in the middle, I read the first line I saw.
“He touched the cool blade to her skin. She flinched from its cold
hardness. Flattened to the tender flesh of her abdomen, one flick of his wrist
and he could cut her.” I cocked my head, staring at her. “You call that tame?”
She shrugged, compressing her lips into an unapologetic smile.
“Yeah, you didn’t even get to the part where he—”
I held my hands up for her to stop.
“Okay, okay. I’ll read it. Probably. One day.” I closed the book.
