Fractured is the third novel in the Bay Area Professional Series. It can be read as a stand alone but you can expect to see characters from Impacted! and Bonds of Love making guest appearances.
Bay Area Professionals
Roque “Ro” Celdran dreams of a better life, far away from the hand-to-mouth existence of his migrant worker family. He moves to San Francisco to study Landscape Design but finds himself short of cash. Tony, Ro’s identical twin, comes up with a plan to help Ro make ends meet. The BDSM club Tony frequents is looking for gay men to act as submissives to the Dommes-in-training. Ro reluctantly takes the job and falls headfirst into a world he neither understands nor desires.
Lance Roberts is the new doctor at the dental practice started by Scott Gregory and Robin Kennedy. On the surface, he seems to have it all: the Mensa IQ, blond and blue-eyed good looks, and the determination to make it in his competitive field. Underneath lies a frustrated Dom in search of the perfect sub who can handle his obsessive behavior and debilitating need for control.
When Ro ends up in Lance’s dental chair, the last thing either one expects is a physical and mental connection. Ro’s attraction to “White Bread” never pans out, and Lance’s weakness for Latinos always leads to a dead end. Could this time be different? What happens between the two alphas leads to a lot of soul-searching and some surprising conclusions.
“Mistress Anya is looking for a sub she can use for her demos.”
Roque opened his mouth to protest, but Tony barreled through. “No sex involved, Bro, just a willing guy to go through the motions for her students.”
“I couldn’t get it up for her even if she begged.”
“That’s the beauty of this plan, Ro. She knows you’re gay and have no sexual expectations.”
“But I’m not a real sub, and what students are you talking about?” he’d asked.
“She teaches a class for women interested in becoming a Dominatrix.”
“Why don’t you volunteer to be the guinea pig?”
“I’d have too much fun,” Tony reminded him. “They don’t want a real sub.”
“You’re such a weirdo, Bro.”
“Hey, I don’t call you names ’cause you like to suck cock.”
“You need the paper, Bro.”
Roque sighed upon hearing the harsh truth. “What exactly do I have to do?”
“Get naked, for one thing, and allow these women to tie you up and practice their skills. Since you’re into guys, Anya can rest assured that she won’t have to deal with a horny sub who expects fucking to be a part of the tutorial.”
“And she’s willing to pay for this?”
“That’s what she said.”
“A hundred bucks an hour.”
Roque whistled. “And all I’d have to do is stand there and let them tie me up?”
“Among other things.”
“The usual—sensation play, deprivation, flogging. Just another night at the hands of a beautiful Dominatrix.”
“There’s a reason I don’t go to your club, Tony.”
“The people who go there are usually a bunch of pretenders. They’re not really into the lifestyle. They talk the talk and wear the outfits, but nine times out of ten, it’s all for show. As soon as they go back home, life goes on as normal—missionary sex in the dark.”
“What would you know about the lifestyle?”
“Only what I’ve read,” Ro admitted, “and the books say that true players don’t hang around clubs posturing.”
“You’re making snap judgments after one visit,” Tony protested.
Roque had to concede that Tony might be right. “Check in with me after a few weeks, and I’ll tell you if I’ve changed my opinion.”
