Four stories of sex, romance, and college boys learning to kneel.
Hitachi is a police officer reduced to being a glorified babysitter for a rich man’s son. He resents his assignment, but Gabriel isn’t the brat Hitachi believes he is. He’s a man who likes pain, and who wants Hitachi to let loose with him too.
Leo fantasizes about having sex with a complete stranger, but when he gets his chance it isn’t nearly as wonderful as he imagined it to be. His dad’s boss tries to teach him a lesson about making stupid choices, but his education in submission doesn’t end there.
Jensen is horrible at math, and now he’s in a calculus class that he’s barely getting through. His parents get him a tutor, but this tutor is interested in teaching Jensen about far more than just math.
Timothy comes back home, to a tiny town he can’t stand, when his mother’s illness gets worse. He’s made a string of bad decisions, and his mother’s friend is determined to turn his life around before Timothy gets lost entirely.
College discipline is a collection of four super-short novellas by Caitlin Ricci. The main theme of the anthology is BDSM.
Jenson’s Tutoring Session: This story was completely unbelievable. A tutor using BDSM to teach maths is very far-fetched especially on the first day. It did not make sense. The character of the teacher was very iffy. His entire sexual encounter with his student felt very clinical, without any emotion or passion. The negotiations at the end were again very clinical rather than something born out of lust or passion.
Leo’s Grand Plan: I found this story a little creepy. The whole finding a DOM through internet was fine until the reveal of the older guy’s identity. He wanted to teach Leo how stupid he was to trust anyone off the internet with his body like that but the whole thing came off as taking advantage of the kid. The sexy parts were ok but not that great.
Hitachi’s New Assignment: This story is similar to the first one as to the pace. The MCs are literally strangers when they meet and then they start screwing a few hours later. I get that it’s a novella but still the transition from strangers to fuck-buddies was very abrupt.
Timothy’s First Rodeo: This one had a little back story about the MC. What did not work for me are the cliché coincidences that bring the MCs together. They are again strangers who talk a lot about what is wrong or right and then their solution to it all is screwing. The jump from strangers to having sex to a relationship was unbelievable. The MCs here again lack chemistry to make the sudden sex between them within minutes of knowing each other viable.
Overall, if you are looking for some BDSM action and not too concerned about the story or characters surrounding it then this book will scratch that itch.
