Thank you to Adaline Raine for hosting this week's discussion.
Thanks so much to Celeste Jones for letting me host the discussion on today's book, The Coach's Discipline by Katherine Deane!
There were so many amazing scenes to pick questions from so please feel free to ask and share your own.
There is an amazing spot where Nick takes Claire and blindfolds her to go on a sense walk. This is incredibly hot even though there isn't any discipline or sexual adventures it's Claire trusting him enough to keep her safe and let each of her five senses really build. There is a lot of yummy tension but the descriptions drew me in so completely that I felt like I was walking right beside the two of them in the woods.
Have you ever done something similar? It could be sensory type of play like being blind folded and having your partner try different textures on you or it could be to build one of your lesser used senses.
Think back for a moment. What does fresh cut grass remind you of? Could it be when you used to watch someone mow your lawn and remember the freedom of letting the soft strands tickle your bare feet when you ran outside later? Or maybe you used to play softball and the field always smelled that way.
Senses are incredible and when each one is tested and flexed like a muscle they get stronger. Our muscle memory is amazing and can bring us back to good memories as well as negative ones. Please share!
One reason I connected so deeply with both characters involved how much Nick built up Claire. There is a powerful scene where he tells her firmly that she is not her mother. Claire is trying to get him to spank her and instead they have a very tender moment. Many stories that I enjoy have the heroine struggling with something from her past. Does this help you relate more to characters or does his/her back story and past matter?
To end on a fun note tell me what type of coach you would love to hold you accountable the way that Nick holds Claire. For me I need a personal trainer/nutritionist. If I had one as dominating yet sweet like Nick I'd be in tip top shape in no time!
Thank you again for letting me come over and gush about Katherine's book. I really enjoyed the dynamic between these two characters as well as with Claire in the team. If you haven't gotten a chance to read this one yet, you should definitely give it a go!
Starting next week we'll be discussing the five books in What The Doctor Ordered a medical BDSM collection by Trent Evans, Tara Finnegan, Natasha Knight, Sue Lyndon and Casey McKay. We'll be bringing in the holdiay season with some naughty doctors and their patients!
