About The Subs Club (The Subs Club #1)

A year ago, my best friend Hal died at the hands of an incompetent “dom.” So I started the Subs Club, a private blog where submissives can review doms and call out the douche bags.

A perfect example of the kind of arrogant asshole I mean? The Disciplinarian. He has a pornstache. He loves meat, stoicism, America, and real discipline. And he thinks subs exist to serve him.

But . . . not everything about him is awful. His Davy Crockett act just seems like a cover for his fear of intimacy, and part of me wants to show him it’s okay to get close to people. And, I mean, sue me, but I have fantasized about real discipline. Not role-play, but like, Dave, you’re gonna be thirty in four years and you still work in a mall; get your ass in gear or I’ll spank it.

Not that I’d ever trust anyone with that kind of control.

I’m gonna redefine “battle of wills” for the Disciplinarian. Or I’m gonna bone him. It’s hard to say.


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.

Read Aloud & Giveaway: The Subs Club

Hi! I’m J.A. Rock, and welcome to the Rockin’ Read Aloud Tour—where once a week, a super awesome romance blog hosts a video of me reading aloud from my backlist.  Thanks so much to Prism Book Alliance for hosting me today, where I’m reading from The Subs Club (The Subs Club #1).

Today’s reading is a pick-your-poison, because I did two scenes! You don’t actually have to pick; you can watch both if you want, or neither. Scene one is a getting-to-know-you exchange between super bratty sub Dave, and The Disciplinarian, aka D, who loves meat and silence. And scene two let me try voicing all four main Subs Club members as they officially start their club.

I won’t say too much more, because the video already has an intro (and if you want to skip the intro chatter in video 1, you can go right to 2:15), but I will tell you that you can comment on this post for a chance to win an ecopy of The Subs Club, and that you can follow the tour at the stops listed below. There will be a giveaway at each stop, plus some special guest readers. In fact, I believe my mom is reading with me next week at Joyfully Jay. So…that won’t be awkward.

You’re also welcome to hit me up via email or social media to suggest scenes/books you’d like to see on the tour, or to submit questions for me to answer in the videos.

So have some wine, sit back, and enjoy!

  1. Thank you for the videos! I really am looking forward to reading this book. I have Pain Slut and just started it, but I’m loving it already. Thank you for the chance to win a copy of this one!

  2. This was like an extra gift for my birthday! ^_^ I love listening to you read your books. Ever since you reading from Brat-tastic last year at GRL I’ve had your voice in my head when reading your books and it’s just fantastic.. You should do the audio if/when they turn into audiobooks.
