Pledging a fraternity is always a little nerve-wracking, but Blake’s racing pulse comes from more than a fear of rejection. He’s got one eye on Vadim, Delta Iota Kappa’s muscle-bound Chief Punishment Officer, and the other on that paddle. Pledging D.I.K. is going to be a whole lot more challenging, and exciting, than he ever anticipated.

Vadim’s been waiting three years for

There’s nothing wrong with this, it’s just that once the novelty wore off, neither the kink nor the characters were enough to compel my interest. Also, I felt haunted by real-life stories of fraternity pledges being killed during hazing — which made it difficult for me to take this in the lighthearted way it was intended.

T.M. Chris is Tanya Chris, who I’ve found worth reading in the past. In fact, I have another book of hers waiting on my Kindle right now which hopefully will be more my thing.

Well, that was a fun little romp on the kinky side.

College boys, frat houses and spanking.

Underlying it is the theme of discovering yourself and a developing romantic relationship. Very well written with perfect pacing and editing.

Blake, a fraternity pledge discovers he has masochistic tendencies when he is spanked by the fraternity sadist during the pledge ceremony.
Vadim, the self proclaimed sadist, will spank and slap Blake's ass during a period of four weeks (the duration of the pledge). (view spoiler) The end.

The toll will round up to two blowjobs, two sex scenes and spanking galore.
Almost dnfed from all the spanking but I

“So if you dig choking on my dick, or wearing my handprints like they’re fucking Gucci underwear, or taking my cock up your ass so far and so often you’re more cockwhore than college student, I’m not going to rank on you for that. I like that you like it. That’s why I picked you. I’m going to get mine, you’re going to get yours, and when this is over, you’ll have so much to jerk off to you’ll never need internet access again.”— 😆

This was pretty good, if you could get through the numerous spanking scenes there was some pretty sweet romance going on and the mcs were real and interesting (not that we found out much about them since they were always smacking away (poor students - their only other toys were a couple of bulldozer clips).
Really sweet ending though -- I'd read a sequel.
Sadist meet Masochist=It Hurts So Good

Leave it to T.M. Chris a.k.a. Tanya Chris to make a spanking story into something more. I picked this up because it was on KU, and I love TC, but I confess frat boys are a high hurdle for me.

When Blake shows up to pledge for Delta Iota Kappa, he has no idea his kinks include exhibitionism, a taste for humiliation, and being something of a pain slut. Luckily Vadim, a senior frat brother and enthusiastic sadist becomes his Big Brother during a 4 week hazing p

This was a short, sexy book that really packed a punch (well, spanking)! It is unapologetically spanking erotica, not a romance, not plot-centric, but I actually felt the plot was just fine, and enough to really get a feel for the characters and the frat house. It was fun to get to be in Blake's head right as he's first realizing that humiliation and spanking are a turn-on for him; understandably, that's not necessarily something you'd grow up knowing. And Vadim! Hoo boy!!! I would LOVE to see w ...more

This was pledging a Frat House and one boys discovery he LIKES spanking! (In case the name/cover were too vague for you.) He gets chosen by the Chief Punishment Officer, a self-proclaimed sadist, to get initiated into said frat-- which is known as "DIK" for short. O, yea. He's gay.

This was a short (!) read that I probably wasn't supposed to find as funny as I did but what can I say? Other than, "Woo-HOO!"

Stopped at 27%. Maybe I will come back to finish this one some other time.

I do like humiliation-kink. It can work really well in some situations, but this is too much "for everyone to see", almost getting boring sometimes. A bit too cringy instead of exciting as it should have been. Great idea for a book though...

“Don’t worry,” Vadim interrupted. “I know how to pick ’em.”

Blake is a freshman pledging for Delta Iota Kappa (D.I.K.). Vadim is a senior and the “Chief Punishment Officer for D.I.K.

“We can’t wrap up this year’s paddling of the pledges until we hand the paddle over to our Chief Punishment Officer and resident sadist, Vadim.”

Before pledging Blake didn't know he could or would enjoy being humiliated and spanked. Luckily for him Vadim saw just how much Blake enjoyed the punishments and pick

I loved this story! I knew it was a short story going in; so I wasn't too surprised to reach the end. But I was still disappointed! It is hard not to fall for these two especially at the end which had me in tears. I would love to read another story about these two further down the line - maybe set in the future after college when life has started. Oh maybe with a couple of children. I'm just putting it out there for author consideration. :) It's a lovely story as is!!

Blake never expected to enjoy the humiliation and the spankings he receives while pledging to his fraternity. However, since he's gay, he's worried about being turned on around the other frat brothers because he doesn't want to mess up his chances of joining. Once he gets the spanking he really wants from senior frat brother, Vadim, he knows this is something he needs. Vadim knows as well and he picks Blake to be his "little brother" for four weeks. Vadim provides Blake a safe place where he can ...more

A short, quick read that is centered around spanking. I found it to be a sexy storyline about initiation period in a fraternity. Vadim and Blake are great characters that have an instant connection and chemistry. If you enjoy stories about spanking with some cute moments, the this is the book for you.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

A really enjoyable Frat based story

Blake is a freshman wanting to join the frat house. Paired up with Vadim, the month is a series experiences where Blake finds out so much about himself and his own sexuality. Both hot and sweet, this was a really enjoyable frat book that wasn't all about total humiliation.

4.5 stars

This is my favorite type of kink book: when I go in for the kink and come out with feelings. I loved these two together, the setting and definitely the spankings. Normally when I enjoy something this length this much, I'd be wanting for more. But this was actually a perfectly contained story and I'm just so satisfied with it.

This book was ok, but I didn't like it as much as Tamed. There is a lot of spanking. Sadist meets masochist (who didn't know until he was) and happy spank times happen.

I did not dislike this book but it isn't one I would want to read again. Neither MC was angsty or very deeply portrayed. A surface kind of book.

If you love humiliation and punishment (the good kind), this book is definitely for you. It's a short read that will leave you satisfied. I love this author.

This was a nice kinky surprise.

When I read the title and saw what this book was about I thought it would be a short story with kinky paddling and not much else. Oh boy this is more than that. It is a story of Blake learning his desires and find it love. I highly enjoyed it.

Cheeky, hot, and fun

We both know why you're here. You want a cheap and reliable thrill, well this is it. A fun read, good quality, and a bit of a HEA. So take the risk. It's worth it.

Ok, I am really conflicted here. I usually do not like stories centered around spanking because I really consider it as one of the most humiliating experiences and I really don't understand how you can feel pleasure receiving a spanking. But this book is the first example of a story I liked even though the relationship was based on spanking, sadism, voyeurism, humiliation, pain, where I kind of understood how both characters enjoyed the situation, got pleasure from it and may actually develop a ...more

Who doesn’t like a book about spankings? I love when one MC is a sadist and the other a masochist. It’s my kink. This book is a good short story.
