One sub to please the Master…in any way he wishes.

Victor Connagher is no stranger to the Dallas BDSM scene. As CEO of a risqué cable channel that caters to adventurous adults, he ensures the lifestyle is portrayed in a positive light. He even supports a local bondage club. Yet behind the cool, confident mask, Victor lives in fear.

Once, and only once, he lost control of his inner Dom—and it cost him his fiancée. Now, no one knows how hard he works to keep his darker appetite for pain buried. No matter how much his saucy, confident associate producer makes his fingers itch to once again take up his riding crop.

Shiloh Holmes is a sub, but she’s no doormat. She’s always suspected Victor has the skills to feed her insatiable need for pain, and now she’s found the perfect way to crack his formidable control. Develop a new reality show, America’s Next Top sub…and dare him to compete.

Week after week, as Shiloh fearlessly challenges the real Victor to come out of hiding, he realizes his past mistake was only a blow to his pride. If he loses Shiloh, he could lose his heart.

Warning:  Explicit sex, BDSM, reality television, a very reluctant Dom, an audacious sub willing to do anything to win for him, and one very wicked riding crop.

Reviews:

The way Joely Sue Burkhart describes the feelings and the dynamics, the hunger and need, is mesmerizing. The way she describes insecurity, vulnerability and pain is simply out of this world.  Pearl, Pearl’s World of Romance

Ms. Burkhart has certainly put herself in a class above the rest with this story. To be able to write such intensity, emotion and drama, and to have the characters remain loving and devoted, was amazing to see.  MacKenzie, Blackraven Reviews

The sex is hot, the foreplay edgy, and lots of dominant/submissive action got my total attention.  Armenia, Naughty in the Backseat

  1. Loved the story of Conn and Rae. I live in Marshfield MO and went to Drury University in Springfield. It was really cool to read a book set in my part of the world, haven’t really seen that since Janet Dailey’s Show Me.

    Can’t wait for Victor’s book.

  2. Hi Ms. Burkhart; Keep up the good work and take care. I just a little bit of Hurt me so good and I love it. Thanks Juanita Ervin

  3. I loved Dear Sir i’m yours and one of my groups on Goodreads in using it for one of our monthly books :) Do you have a release date on Hurt Me So Good yet, so I can mark it on my calender

  4. Juanita, thank you so much! I hope you enjoy it all the way to the end!

  6. Hi, Just finished Victor and Shiloh’s story. I wasn’t quite sure if I would like it. I loved it. I loved the emotion and humor of it. thank you.

  7. Warning: This review is all about me and my prejudices concerning the SM part of BDSM and how I realized I might be a little deviant too *g*. Bear with me, I am no longer prejudiced LOL. Yes even I can learn !

    Hurt me So Good is one of those books that I have a hard time reviewing. Why? Because while I devoured and LOVED it, I’m a bit torn about my feelings toward Masochism (and I can’t not say something about that). After being blown away by Dear Sir, I’m Yours , I couldn’t wait to read Victor’s book. I was not disappointed, he is so intense and dark *swoon*. I am fairly new to the BDSM world, and in comparison to Victor’s book, Dear Sir, I’m Yours was pretty vanilla lol. The title, Hurt Me So Good is perfect for this book. Here we are introduced to another kind of BDSM, a tougher kind.

    Victor is more than just a Dom, he is a Master and he loves inflicting pain. He is a sadist. Which is fortunate since our heroine loves pain. When I say love…I mean LOVE pain. This is why I’m torn. I shudder at the simple idea of pain, I just can’t imagine taking pleasure in pain, and the whole book is based on that. The heroine is pretty much addicted to pain. It’s weird but somehow the Sadist part didn’t disturb me at all, only the Masochist part (Maybe you should start thinking about what this means about you Caroline…huh!). There now, you’re gonna think I didn’t enjoy this book, and you’d be wrong! I’m torn between giving it 4 1/2 Bookies and giving it a perfect rating. Why? Because Joely Sue Burkhart did it again. She worked her magic and made me open up my mind to a new lifestyle. She really succeeded in educating this poor reader without scaring her away. I got to understand the characters’ motivations and I wanted more.

    Victor is one piece of work. I love how intense and imposing he is. I would be scared if I ever was alone in a room with him lol. Even more since his favorite tool is a crop! (but he’s also pretty impressive without it too) *shakes in her boots* He is sexy as Hell and radiates power. He might be a bit scary but I loved that he was in control of himself. He is not crazy (<==you can see here how I was prejudiced before reading the book) and asks himself the good questions…he searches for his limits. That’s what makes him ‘safe’ in my opinion. What make me trust him. Shiloh was harder for me to get at first. I wanted to slap her sometimes and when I talked with a friend about that she didn’t agree with me. What disturbed me was that she seemed to have no limits. I just didn’t get that. For me no limits means DANGER. Of course everybody has limits (or they are just psychos), I just needed to keep reading and stop bitching all the time, the answer was found later in the book. *wink*

    The story was very interesting, I loved the concept of a BDSM Reality show. I learned a lot about this lifestyle and all it’s different aspects. The goal of that show was to educate the audience and show BDSM in a good light. Mission accomplished…I learned a lot and it doesn’t look as scary as before! I laughed a lot too, at Patrick and his pony fetish *whinny*. Shiloh and Victor together are sizzling. Shiloh loves to talk dirty, which makes for very hot smex scenes! All their scenes together made my blood boil. I loved when Victor lost control. It’s very very erotic *drools*. I also never thought I could be turned on by branding, but here I was, reading about Victor marking Shiloh with his V and I found that very hot O_O. I think they are just perfect for each others.

    All in all it was a very mind-opening book. I couldn’t stop reading and never once did I think it was too much. Joely wrote very believable and complex characters and made me understand why they did what they did. This is a great story, I really love Victor and I found the ending perfect. It could have easily turned into too much for me but it didn’t. I felt more educated and more open-minded after reading Hurt Me So Good. I keep thinking about this book, I even dreamed about it. It is one of those books that stays with you for a long time after you’ve finished it. I cannot wait for Vicky’s book now. I’m already wondering what wickedness she could be hiding , since it seems to run in the family. *wink*

    I give Hurt Me So Good 5 Bookies.
