Maintenance Night was a quick, hot read. This is a BDSM book involving a married couple and I haven't come across those often. I enjoy reading about that sort of dynamic.
I love an alpha-male and we certainly get one within these pages. Love, sadism, masochism, hot sex all packed into a tight short story. Certainly fun! I love that it was written by a man; often these books are written by a female and I really enjoyed discovering the small and slight variations in perspective.

Phew! This story is a hot and intimate glimpse into the domestic discipline arrangement in Lacey's marriage. Their DD focuses on a regular night of spanking that her husband, Troy, likes to call maintenance and Lacey both fears and revels in her Friday Maintenance. Troy has instilled some humiliating demands into their marriage providing good excuse for punishment when Lacey fails to meet them.
SPOILER: Lacey raised her secret desire to be spanked to her husband and has been taken aback to discover how much he enjoys hurting her. Still, this undoubtedly turns her on. However, this Friday Troy extends their ritual into new areas she is unprepared for. He sweeps her along, giving her little opportunity to catch up, and so the sense that this is verging on dubious consent or non-consent gets stronger. The unease Mr Evans provokes is relieved only by the tiny signals passing between husband and wife. And a clear message that--even as Lacey is in agony and on the edge of her limits--she is determined she won't quit on anything Troy can dish out and is hugely turned on. Plus there are little clues that Troy loves his wife and would not harm her or take her beyond her limits. Still, he certainly pushes her to the maximum and there is a disturbing glimpse of how much her pain gives him pleasure.END SPOILER
There is a twist to the story at the end, a twist because Lacey does not clue the reader into her deception from the beginning. I had a slight problem with this. Her motivation for lying in the first place is not entirely clear. Is she lying to ensure her husband punishes her? That would make sense, but her thoughts on the subject led me to believe otherwise. SPOILER However, I very much enjoyed their loving affection at the end and Troy's reaction to her confession.END SPOILER
There were some lovely turns of phrases in Mr Evan's writing, some very natural thoughts from Lacey, and the detail of Lacey's punishment is very erotic. Anyone who enjoys reading DD will love it, and anyone who doesn't will probably enjoy it anyway, despite any reservations along the way.
Overall a 5. I've read this twice and it's still very hot the second read through!
