Title: Pain Slut (The Subs Club #2)
Author: J.A. Rock
Publisher: Riptide
Cover Artist: Kanaxa
Genre: BDSM, Contemporary

Blurb:

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

About the Subs Club series
After the death of their friend Hal at the hands of an irresponsible dom, submissive friends Dave, Kamen, Miles, and Gould band together to form the Subs Club—an organization seeking to expose dangerous local doms. The club slowly evolves as romances blossom, loyalties are tested, and tensions mount in a community already struggling for unity in the wake of Hal’s death.
From domestic discipline to knife play to fashion paraphilia, and from family drama to new jobs to first loves, the members of the Subs Club explore life’s kinks inside and outside of the bedroom as they attempt to let go of the past and move forward.

Who’s New in Pain Slut

Each Subs Club book brings new characters to join besties Dave, Miles, Kamen, and Gould—including love interests, family members, and archnemeses. So here’s a look at some of the fresh faces in Pain Slut:

Drix Seger – Love comes walking into Miles’s store in the form of Drix Seger, a 6’7” private investigator and pointy-toothed vampyre. Drix knows nothing about BDSM, but he’s a sadist who loves his vampyre lifestyle, knows how to swing a single-tail whip, and wants to learn about BDSM so he can help Miles with his pain slut bucket list. His parents named him for their two favorite musical artists, and Drix might never forgive them for that. Drix is very interested in bodies and energy, and senses quite a bit of tension in tightly wound Miles.

Bowser – Bowser was mentioned briefly in The Subs Club, but here we get to learn more about the ginger-bearded Viking who likes playing doctor with Miles. Just…not the kind of doctor you’d ever want to go see. The kind of doctor who swells your scrotum with saline, or staples your dick shut, or cuts you with the scalpel just to see the blood run. Great bedside manner, though.

Malina – Miles’s adopted sister. She’s on a quest for her Honduran roots, which involves her version of Spanglish and hanging out with a rowdy crowd of Hondurans she met at college. She and Miles love each other, but have grown apart over the years. As Miles embarks on his quest to adopt, he realizes just how much he misses and needs her.

Miles’s mom – Imperious, intimidating, and perhaps even more uptight than Miles himself, Mrs. Loucks has essentially been a single parent for years while her truck-driver husband is on the road. She loves Miles deeply, but sometimes has a hard time showing it. Miles worries that, as a parent, he might display some of his mother’s negative qualities.

Michael “Buble” Balby – The DM who was in Riddle the night Hal died but was in a different playroom when Hal’s death occurred. Michael makes a return to Riddle, and to DM-ing in Pain Slut.

Girltoy – a Riddle-goer fond of fairy wings and covered in key tattoos. A big fan of Riddle’s newest attraction, the dildo iron maiden.

BellaSade – A San Fran transplant and Riddle DM for whom enthusiasm is not a priority. She nails the bored ride operator persona when she’s asked to supervise the dildo iron maiden.

Ryan Wheeler – a very short—but rather aggressive—Subs Club fan who takes a particular interest in Kamen.

Maya – a nineteen-year-old Hymland college student frustrated at being too young to go to most BDSM events, and worried she’ll never find a partner who’s into the same stuff she’s into. She wants to join the Subs Club—but not as the token girl.

The Dark Ravens – Drix’s vampire coven. Includes Cathy, leader of the Ravens and preparer of delicious hot dogs; Archimedes “Archie” Wendell, the coven’s oldest member (at 4,115); and newbie Peter, who makes Miles deeply uncomfortable by looking like Harry Potter while receiving an initiatory flogging.
