Is there a connection during BDSM? Let's ask Vicktor!



How does that first connection begin? That moment of recognition between two men? A Dom and a sub? It’s not always in a play party. Or at a munch. They don’t always place an ad on a BDSM website Sir seeks boy must be into pain, sensation play, bondage, age-play. Hard limits: no watersports, no scat, no blood play, no edge play, no piercing. Soft limits: sharing, double penetration, exhibitionism, fisting, medical play, humiliation…

Sometimes a Sir meets his boy in the most innocent of places. It can be at work. It can be in line at the grocery store. It can even be while they are standing around at the airport waiting to board. The important thing is the connection. Someone says something that alerts the other to the fact that they are in the Lifestyle and the other picks up on the fact that they are. Because not everyone is wearing leather gear, not everyone has tattoos or is flagging to a certain side. Not everyone has their flogger attached to their belt loops like me. Sometimes it’s something as simple as:

“I think it’s the loss of control,” he confessed. “I don’t really like not being the master of my own destiny.”

The man nodded and bit his lower lip. “I guess I can understand that. I know the reference anyway.”

Miguel quirked an eyebrow. “Do you not have an issue with giving up control?”

The stranger blushed. “Not especially. No.”

That little exchange would seem harmless to anyone else but to the characters in Delicious Mistake it let them know that they were in the company of someone who was in the Lifestyle.

For Miguel Rodriguez and Julian Canton, a political campaign manager, and a waiter, that connection was instantaneous. They knew they wanted to pursue it. Not just because Miguel wanted to tie Julian down to the bed, and see his marks on the young man’s skin. Not just because he wanted the young man’s submission, but after spending an entire plane ride with him, Miguel wanted to take care of him. That is the mark of a true Dom. The desire to take care of their sub.

And for Julian, he was strong enough to give his submission to someone. Trusted Miguel enough to submit to him. And felt the connection enough to have that submission turn into so much more.

Blurb for A Delicious Mistake:
This is book three in the Mistakes series, see the full series listing here
Miguel Rodriguez believes that love makes the strongest of men weak and wants no part of it, but when he meets Julian Canton, he makes one delicious mistake that will change both their lives forever.

Miguel Rodriguez stood by his friend Xavier’s side when evidence of his affair with another man came out. He also stuck by Xavier when he disappeared from Atlanta and moved to the mountains of Wyoming. But he will not stand by Xavier when he decides to marry his young lover and still run for the Senate.

Hopping on a plane to Wyoming, Miguel finds himself meeting Julian Canton, a young man who has no political ambitions and doesn’t even vote, and yet Miguel finds himself fascinated. Miguel makes the mistake of upgrading Julian’s ticket so they can get to know each other better and somehow finds himself in Riverton, WY, holding Julian’s hand as he says goodbye to his brother. Giving in to his attraction to the young man, Miguel struggles not only with his physical attraction but with his emotional one as well. When he compounds his mistake by inviting Julian along with him to talk to Xavier, he soon finds himself feeling something he has never felt before. Will he join his friend Xavier in listening to his heart or will he walk away?
