This story was previously published elsewhere under the title Devil’s Dance and has been revised for Ellora’s Cave. If you like smoking-hot spanking scenes, public naughtiness and determined alpha males, this one’s for you.
Review: Beg Me is everything you could want in a short erotic tale, and more. I loved the characters, the heat was off the charts, and the background was just enough without being overwhelming. I enjoyed every twist, and the character development along the way. Tessa’s interest in BDSM , coupled with her one time fiancée’s harsh rejection of her desires leads her to become a sex therapist. Years later she’s ready to face her desires head on realizing, she’s helping everyone else but herself. A trip to a new BDSM club in town introduces her to Jared.
Jared is a tall, dark, and sexy man who enjoys playing in the BDSM world, but isn’t consumed with the lifestyle. From the moment he spies Tessa, in the club she awakens something in him he hasn’t felt in a year. With a little seduction he convinces Tessa to enter into a contract with him. He’ll show her everything she needs to know about BDSM and then she can make her final decision on what happens next, no strings attached. When their time reaches its end will they call it quits or realize they’ve found something worth holding on to?

The short story “Beg Me” begins with an artificial premise that is intended to be ironic – a sex therapist who doesn’t understand BDSM and has to be introduced to it. A reader has to wonder where the woman, Tessa, received her education and training. The highly cliched writing is gems such as the following – “moving toward her like a predator closing in for the kill.” Jared, the hero, has a dragon tattoo, a dragon with “amazing colors.” Jared is full of arrogance, “but it suited him.”
The writing and the scenes are predictable as is the conflict that occurs towards the end of the story. Because this happy-ever-after story does not have any glaring copy-editing errors or goofs, it does earn an extra star. Readers who read very quickly and then move right on to the next story will be satisfied, however, it does not support re-reading.
