Pain Slut by J.A. Rock


Honestly, I’m ready to take a step back from the Subs Club. Making the kink world a safer place for subs is the sort of bandwagon I’d have boarded as an idealist in my early twenties, but now I’m a pragmatist in my late twenties. I prefer to focus on adopting and raising a child.

But unexpected factors inevitably derail my plans. Like Drix Seger—attractive and the first genuine sadist I’ve encountered. If I were not in the process of renouncing my masochistic ways and becoming the normal, responsible potential father the adoption agency wants to see, Drix and I might do well together.

But he has a foolish name and belongs to a cult of vampyres, and I am quitting kink. So why does Drix’s infatuation with blood and biting make me so hot I can’t think straight? And why, when he looks at me, does he seem to see something beyond a basket case with a stick up my ass?

Can I start a new phase in my life without leaving part of myself behind? Please send help.

—Miles

Veronica☆☆☆☆
Miles is a hard-core masochist. He is also desperate to be a father and is in the process of adopting a child. He thinks he needs to quit the BDSM world in order to be a parent and is struggling to reconcile how someone who loves pain can be a good dad.

When Miles goes on a date with Drix, he discovers he has found a sadist but not one who is in the BDSM world. Drix confesses that he lives as a vampyre and is part of a coven. Drix is all about connecting with people and living in the moment. In contrast, Miles is a planner, a worrier, and cautious.

Pain Slut shows that you can have hilarity in amongst your BDSM, life, and relationship dramas. Drix's living as a vampyre provides us with some hilarious moments, and the conversation Miles and his friends have when they learn about Drix had me crying with laughter. The guys from The Subs Club are a riot.

I really enjoyed the story Pain Slut had to tell, but the heavy scenes where pain was being inflicted on Miles, while interesting and educational, didn't really float my boat. But that is just personal preference. Still a great book. 4 stars.
