Logan and Emily’s Contract V2

In Daddy P.I. 2.0, Logan and Emily’s BDSM contract to define their power exchange has evolved. As with the first contract, this is a little long to put in the book, so I’ve set it out here so readers can download it.

Power exchange contracts can be as simple or complex as the people entering into them want to be. Logan and Emily’s power exchange is a more complex contract, to reflect their immersion into the lifestyle.

    • Thanks! I’m a lawyer in my day job, so writing this filled all those little legalistic spaces in my soul. Ironically, my partner and I don’t have a contract – just a really simple set of rules. I think I exercised all my secret desire for a long and complex contract on my characters! 😂

      • Ahh that explains the style of writing in it. It reads like a legal document! It really is a shame it couldn’t go in the novel! I wouldn’t dare show Tom something like that! He would have me signing it in a hot minute! (Minus the little space stuff.)
        I’m very happily divorced 11 years and counting, and that was the last time I had a written contract with anyone. I live part time with my partner, Tom who lives and works in the US these days, (I’m in the UK) no contracts, but that man knows exactly how to work me to get me to comply!

        • There’s a link in the back of each book to the contract so readers can jump to it as long as their e-reader supports web browsing.
          I did show the contract (both versions) to my partner when I was writing them. He wasn’t overly interest. “Could you really remember all that?” he asked. Well, because of what I do all day, I probably could, but I admit our one page of rules is a heck of a lot easier to remember. Something to think about as I write Mac and Brennan’s contract for the next book! 😁

  1. Sound thinking! I struggle to remember my name most days, never mind a list of rules I need to break. (Not good with rules, my bottom can attest to that). I have just downloaded Daddy P.I. onto my kindle, it will be my reading material this evening. 😀

  2. EMMMAAAAA!!!!! OMG!!! I loved Daddy P.I. 0.2!!!
    I confess straight up now, I power read this one, and I think I would like to know more about Theo! I’ll call that man Sir any day of the week! I was absolutely enthralled with the in-depth look inside Blunts and how the club works, Logan and Emily’s relationship, especially when the mir-beast arrived. Laurel and her evolution tale. You have fabulous characters, all stand alone quality for their own journey to be written, and you keep your reader thoroughly entertained throughout with the backstory of Logan’s P.I work. I confess I got who did it from one particular minor incident quite early on but that speaks more to my own interest in writing serial killers, stalkers and murderers. Very cleverly done and I loved how the Rick thing plays out in the end.
    If I have any constructive criticism it would be that it’s just a tad too long for me, that’s not to say it would be for anyone else but I felt like I was being made to wait too long for the end.
    I think I may have mentioned I am impatient! A lot, all of the time! Sorry 😛 xxx

    • Thank you for the constructive criticism! Book 2 is 20,000 words shorter than Book 1, but I think it might have suffered from a “soggy” second act, which might have made it feel too long. I’ll work on tightening things up in future books!
      I’m so in love with these characters and I want to tell all their stories. So many books to write, so little time!
      I’m so happy you liked it and I’m working hard on the next books!! ❤

  3. I like that you still have loose ends to tie up by the end of book 2. I don’t think ‘soggy’ second act is the way to describe it at all.
    From a writer’s perspective, I think you have full 3D characters with so many kinks that it becomes hard to leave anything out. Each scene begins to feel necessary but sometimes is an embellishment to the main story but doesn’t actually move it along. If I am being brutally honest, the punishment scene for Emily is one such scene and the after care, even though it’s necessary, I found I wanted to speed read it to get back to the plot line. Conversely, I understand completely why you needed to write it in full and the aftercare section too, it was a real eye opener into Logan’s evolution and also that of the other Doms and subs where Emily is concerned but for me it didn’t move the story along. So the whole section was entirely readable, entertaining, but for me it put flesh on already full bones.
    I do hope you don’t mind me commenting like this, this is just my humble opinion and I admire you writing skills greatly.
    Honestly, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it from start to finish and was quite sad when I got to the end because I had to let go of these people from my life. I’m looking forward to the next one. 😀 xx

    • I think that’s a really good criticism. Emily’s punishment has relatively little to do with the main stalker plot and probably feels like a side trip. It’s a turning point in Logan and Emily’s relationship, so I didn’t want it to occur “off screen,” but I may have lingered on it more than necessary, which might have killed the pace a bit.
      One of the great joys of the last 5 years, which have been generally tough years for me, has been sharing my head-space with these characters. ❤

      • I can imagine it has been a wonderful journey! I do love them all! Even the horrid ones!
        So glad you got what I was saying, I’ve left reviews on many books that have been met with some serious abuse for a constructive critique.
        I’ve done a lot of editing and proofreading work over the years and I’m aware that people don’t always like to hear my opinion because I can be a little bit too honest sometimes.
        I’m glad you didn’t take it the wrong way. xxx

        • Constructive criticism should always be welcomed, but I understand that some folks are so protective of their book babies that they just can’t hear it. It’s a shame because there’s usually something that can make you a better writer in every piece of constructive criticism, even if it strikes a nerve.
          I think it’s important for the author to gain distance from their work before they open it to criticism. That’s one of the reasons it takes me a while to publish. I tend to finish a story, set it aside for a month or so until I’m less passionate about it, and then start the beta-reading and editing process. By the time I unleash it into the wilds of Amazon and Goodreads, I’ve got enough perspective that even negative reviews don’t sting that much.
          I’m very happy to get criticism about style and structure. Suggesting I go a different way with the characters is kind of an exercise in futility because I swear they do what they want no matter how hard I try to corral them … 😉

          • I’m a firm believer in our characters should never be messed with by an external source. They live in our heads, we have to put up with them complaining when they don’t like being changed! I know that feeling well, it doesn’t matter who I create, they take over in the end and run rampant telling their own story! I’ve got one doing it right now in Karla, the storyline in my head was nothing like it’s turning out to be on the page! She’s turned into someone else entirely! Can’t wait to see where she takes me next! Cos honestly, I have no idea! 😂😂

            • Isn’t it a wonderful ride? I usually know the destination of a story, but the journey is really down to where my characters take me. It sounds like Karla is taking you in some wonderful new directions and it’s delightful you’re embracing them! ❤
