My relationship with Jared has lasted too long. He's mesmerizing, beautiful in his devotion, pure in his need. He reaches parts of me I thought no longer existed, places I'd never known were there. His submission is a gift. His cries of pleasure and pain call to the most primal parts of me. I want to inhale him, own him, mark him as mine. He's my boy and I need to be his Daddy, but my fear holds me back. I'll fail him like I've failed everyone else I've loved. Before that happens, I'll walk away.

I've never known security, love, or true pleasure before Kieran. With every touch, every command, every second of blissful, torturous pain, my heart grows and my soul is at peace. He protects me, spoils me, gives me what I need. Still, in some ways, he's closed off and won't let me in. But Kieran's given me strength. I've evolved, and won't accept less than I deserve...and I won't let Daddy accept less than he deserves, either.

It's a delicate balance: give and take, pleasure and pain. Together we can break each other down to our purest forms and build each other up again. Kieran always says I'm stronger than I think, but I know that together we're invincible...if only he'd believe me.

We have two choices: say goodbye or fight for what's always been out of both our reaches...fulfillment.

Warning: Jared's Fulfillment contains BDSM elements, domestic discipline, spanking, and daddy kink--without age play--between consenting adults. If any of those things offend you, reading this book might not be a good idea.

Jared's Evolution and Jared's Fulfillment must be read in order.

Jared's Fulfillment is part of the Desires Unleashed collection. Some books in this collection will have darker themes. Please be aware Desires Unleashed are er*tic and not your typical Riley Hart romance. You can expect the mental and emotional journey to be led by the physical/s*xual moments--which will be intense, frequent and kinky.

“Come here, boy. Your tie isn’t straight.”

I walked over to Kieran and tilted my head up so he could fix my tie. It was silly how good it made me feel, since it was such a simple thing to do for someone, but I loved it when Kieran did the small things. Sometimes, I didn’t think people realized how much the small things mattered, but he did. Kieran thought of everything.

I smiled because I knew it brought him joy too.

“What are you grinning at?” he asked as he finished.

“You,” I told him, and then added, “Thank you, Daddy.”

“So beautiful when you say that to me.” He rubbed his thumb across my bottom lip. “I love to watch your mouth when you call me Daddy.” He cupped my cheek, leaned in and pressed a soft kiss to my lips. I savored it, nearly melting into him. Kieran reached me on a bone-deep level. My body had a visceral reaction to him any time he was in the same room. And the reaction had grown over the last month, since the night of the play. It was then when I’d quietly decided to show Kieran how much I loved him, with my service to him. When I’d decided to secretly fight for us, the best way I knew how.

“Finish getting ready. I’ll put bagels on,” he told me, pressing another quick kiss to my mouth.

“Thank you,” I replied, before watching Kieran walk out of the room. I loved the way he moved—the power in the way he held his body. The dominance in him. He filled me in ways I never knew I needed, in ways that left me forever changed. He was everything to me and I couldn’t deny that. I didn’t want to. I wanted to bask in it because, for the first time in my life, I truly understood what it was like to be happy. Secure. At peace. Protected.

After walking over to Kieran’s dresser, I plucked a pair of socks from the top drawer, pulled them onto my feet, and then slipped on my shoes before I met him in the kitchen.

“You’re going to lunch with Marco today?” he confirmed. Marco and I had begun spending quite a bit of time together. He was funny and understanding. He always answered my questions and freely shared his own stories with me. I truly liked him and was thankful for this new friendship.


I walked over to help but he said, “Sit. I’ll take care of it.”
Another smile pulled at my lips; I loved the feeling of Kieran caring for me…of him telling me what to do. It made my head spin in the best sort of way. It was amazing, really, the way this lifestyle had changed me. The way it had grounded me—strengthened me. It’s not something I would have believed before my relationship with Kieran. It’s not something most people could likely understand but then…why did anyone else have to understand it? It was the way we chose to live. People often forgot that because something was wrong for them, it didn’t mean it was wrong for everyone, or hell, that it was wrong in any way.

Jared's Evolution

Jared Reynolds is a successful attorney. He thrives on even the most stressful cases. Confident and in control in the courtroom, once he leaves for the day he shuts down. Life becomes too much for him to handle. The decisions, responsibility and pressure are bearing down on him. The simple tasks in his personal life and going home to an empty house cause extreme stress he tries to pretend doesn't exist. Finding out he has a Daddy kink confuses and stresses him out even more!

Kieran MacAuley lives in the condo next door. After overhearing Jared's discovery of his kinky side, Kieran realizes they have something in common. Kieran is a Daddy Dom and just the person to slowly help Jared explore and understand what he needs in his life.

I really liked Jared, the confusion he faces in becoming who he really is outside of work is a journey of self-discovery and a long rocky road. Once he embraced his desires, he evolves into the beautiful, submissive boy he was mentally prepared to be.

Kieran, while gentle and yet firm in his Daddy role, I found I had trouble connecting with him outside of that. He was secretive and withdrawn about his life. He wanted to know everything about Jared and yet wouldn't give anything in return. I felt like he may have strong feelings for Jared, but refused to even acknowledge a lasting relationship, let alone feelings.

Joseph and Marco have amazing chemistry and really show Jared how a true, long-lasting Dom/Sub relationship should be. 

I highly recommend reading Jared's Fulfillment as soon as you finish this book! You will be craving the rest of Kieran and Jared's story!

Jared's Fulfillment 

Kieran and Jared's relationship has progressed well past where Kieran had wanted it to. But Jared's beautiful submission, devotion and need for Kieran is making it impossible to give him up. While he desires nothing more than to be Jared's Daddy, fear of failing him holds Kieran back. He believes he has failed to everyone in his past and before he will do that to Jared, he will walk away.

For the first time in his life, Jared has found love, security and pleasure, all because of Kieran. While his Daddy protects him and gives him what he needs, Kieran is still closed off. Determined to give his Daddy what he deserves in life, Jared works to show Kieran his devotion. But when Kieran still walks away, Jared has to turn to the inner strength Kieran has shown him he has. Kieran has to face his past to accept that Jared is the future he never thought he deserved.

The continuation of Kieran and Jared's story just broke my heart. Jared being the gentle boy that he is, struggles so hard with being left on his own. Kieran tries to bury his past and live without his boy, but just can't let go. With the help of Joseph and Marco, they try and live without each other, but their feelings are too strong and what they give to each other can never be replaced with anyone else. As they work to rebuild their relationship, Kieran's past comes to light and my connection to him was complete. Jared will do everything he can to help his Daddy realize it wasn't his fault and he deserves to have the love of his boy. This is a beautiful way to end their story. Kieran and Jared have built a lasting love that really shines through.
