WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ?
Fuck you, you fucking rich asshole. You can afford to savor your aged gruyere and your fresh fruit and your fucking chocolate pancakes. To linger for an hour over your gourmet coffee beens shit from a civet and your copy of the Wall Street Journal.Jonathan is a Crème de la Crème of Doms. "Fallow my rules and we will both enjoy the journey, defy me and you will... Well, for your own good you better don't." He's not a mean Dom, but he is a sadist at heart :). He comes across as confidant and in control, just like a Dom should, but when he gets involved with Bren, he finds himself way over his head. You see, he made a little proposition to Bren. It's nothing dark and dirty. Not at first. He was looking for submissive and thought that Bren could fill those shoes.
"If I learned anything in life, it's that nothing worth having comes easy, and you've gotta be willing to fight for what matters to you."
Did he want it? So hard to forgive him for what he’d done, though. To forgive him for being so fucking edible all the time, even when he was a total ass, infuriating, heartless and cruel. So hard to forgive himself for wanting the little shit anyway. Maybe that’s what happened when you broke.
"Yet, here you are."
Oh fuck the throat. Bran wanted to punch him in the fucking nuts.
The first blow wasn't too bad, even though it landed with a loud smack. For a second, the sound of leather on bare skin tore Bran fifteen years into the past, but he clawed his way back; no way was he letting himself fall down that hole ever again.While Bran does consent to everything he and Jonathan do, he struggles with punishment because of the abuse he suffered as a child at the hands of his father, and he just does not like pain but he puts up with it because he can endure it and does not want to back out of his contract that would cost him $3 million. However, Bran is a submissive, even though he is not a masochist, and he feels weak for wanting somebody else to take care of him. This, more than anything, makes him resistant to Jonathan.
He hurt me. Humiliated me. Used me. Treated me like a fucking whore.It was very hard for Bran to accept that he had a submissive side in the first place.
Because you goaded him. Fought him every step of the way. Admit it--you liked him. You liked what he made you feel. You liked the way he made you think. You liked the way he opened your eyes.
"But you have to understand, being a Dominant...It's not about smugness. It's about steadiness. It's my job to understand you, inside and out. It's my job to know things, to be able to act on them with confidence. To be your anchor when you fly...And you've not permitted me to do any of that. You've not trusted me. Even thought I've never lied to you. Even thought I've never indulged my own desires ahead of yours, never beat you just for my own pleasure. Even though I've held you when you've cried..."
