Anniversary Shenanigans: Author Visit + Giveaway - Kim Dare

Get ready for some warm and fuzzy feels from the queen of kink with a heart, Kim Dare. Let us know what you think of her fic in the comments!

“You’re wearing a tux.”

“And you’re not wearing anything at all,” Simon countered, as he stepped further into the living room.

Adam scrambled up off his knees. God, he was an idiot. “I’m sorry, sir. Your flat- mate let me in. He said we had the place to ourselves tonight. I thought—” Turning his back on Simon, Adam hurried across to the chair by the window, where he’d left his clothes. “Sorry. I shouldn’t have done anything without an order, sir.”

Simon placed his hand on Adam’s arm, stopping him before he even got one foot into his jeans.

“I’m sorry, sir,” Adam repeated. “I’ll be out of your way in a second.”

“Stop apologising, pet. You haven’t done anything wrong. I gave you three weeks’ notice that I wanted you to be here by eight o’clock tonight, didn’t I?” His grip on Adam’s arm was gentle but insistent as he made Adam turn to face him.

Adam shook his head. “No. It’s my fault. I should have checked back in the meantime. Plans change. You obviously…” He trailed off as stared at the shiny lapels of Simon’s tux.

“I obviously have to attend a boring work thing tonight,” Simon finished off for him.

Adam jerked his head up. “A work thing?”

“Yes. A work thing.”

Their eyes met and Adam realised that Simon already knew what he’d assumed when he saw the tux—that Simon was all dressed up for a date with another guy—with a man who was less of a sub and more worthy of being Simon’s publically-acknowledged boyfriend. But, if it was a work thing…

“Do you have time for a blowjob before you leave, sir? Or I could come back later, if you—”

“Hush.” Simon ran his thumb across Adam’s mouth and nudged him back to lean against the windowsill. “Who’s the dom here?”

Adam swallowed. “You are, sir.”

“So, deciding what should happen is my job. You just need to wait for an order, right?”

“Yes, sir.”

“Good boy.” Simon brushed his lips against Adam’s forehead in one of those sweet little kisses that, against all logic, had the power to make Adam feel like he belonged to Simon, right down to the bottom of his soul.

Adam took a deep breath and nodded to himself. Nothing had changed. Simon was his dom, and everything was fine. “How may I serve you, sir?” For the first time since he’d spotted Simon’s tux, Adam both felt and sounded calm.

“You can go into the bedroom put on the new tux I bought for you.”

All of Adam’s calmness deserted him in an instant.

“Then you can come to my boring work thing with me,” Simon continued.

“But, sir—”

“It’s time for you to meet the people I work with, pet.”

“I don’t—”

“I’m not starting a debate about how you think subs should be hidden away like dirty little secrets; I’m telling you what’s going to happen. You’re going to put on your new tux and attend this gala with me. You’ll nod and smile at the people I work with, and you’ll dance all the slow dances with me.” His tone didn’t invite any argument, but it softened slightly as he smiled. “The moment we can slip away, we’ll come back here. At which point, I’ll expect you to be naked and on your knees within ninety seconds.”


“You know that I love you when you’re naked and kneeling for me, pet. But I’ve told you before that I want you to be my boyfriend as well as my sub, and that means there will be times when you’ll have to be dressed, on your feet, and out in public with me. And that’s starting tonight.”

Adam stared up at Simon, trapped in a web of uncertainty and fear.

“It will be fine, pet. I promise. You won’t be any less my sub, and I won’t be any less your dom, just because we occasionally do something together that doesn’t involve leather.” He pressed another kiss to Adam’s forehead. “Okay?”

“I think…” Adam took a deep breath. He’d never believed a man who took his sub out on dates could be a real dom. But, there again, until he’d met Simon, he’d never known a man who could state his ownership as easily with a forehead kiss as he could with a whip, either. “I think, maybe I should go and try on that tux, sir.”
