“You’ll kneel for me without me having to tell you to. And when you do, you’ll feel so much better. Trust me.”
- Detective Sam Roberts

Officer Ryan Bennett: Ambitious and smart, Ryan Bennett is a young officer on Houston’s police force. He’s pursuing his dream of being promoted to the city’s elite SWAT team with a single mindedness that won’t accept any outcome but success. But that isn’t his only dream. Ryan wants more than a coveted position on SWAT. He wants to be owned by a strong Dominant. To give himself up to a Dom who will make him shudder with pleasure beneath a firm yet loving hand. Unfortunately, Ryan has had nothing but failure in that part of his life. Now, he’s hidden that dream away from everyone, including himself. And he refuses to let anyone close enough to see what he truly desires, and who he truly is.

Detective Sam Roberts: Cool and calm, Detective Sam Roberts is good at reading people, during the day as a detective and at night as a Dom. He easily sees past the hard layer of arrogance surrounding Officer Ryan Bennett to the hurt submissive hiding beneath. He wants to help Ryan, even though the stubborn young man resists him. But Sam isn’t one to back down from a challenge. He’s determined to help Ryan embrace the soft, giving nature of his submissive side. Using both a gentle hand and the sting of the whip, he’ll work to coax Ryan’s submission free. But what will Sam do if he’s successful? Let Ryan go as promised? Or give the young officer the very thing he’s wanted for so long?

Ryan stopped picking at the wax and met Sam's eyes in the mirror. He didn't say anything. He just stood there, looking at Sam's reflection.
“Do you need-.” Sam stopped. Ryan was on the brink of ... something. Sam knew what he said would either finally get him to open up or cause that hard shell to close even tighter around him. Remembering Ryan’s seeming aversion to needing someone, he asked instead, “Would you like some help?”
Ryan moved his head, the movement so slight it could barely be called a nod. If they hadn't been staring at each other in the mirror, he would have missed it. Sam touched his fingertips to Ryan's shoulder, waiting to see if he would be rejected. Ryan didn’t react, so Sam moved in closer. When he laid the warmth of his palm across his back, Ryan closed his eyes and shuddered. He gripped the countertop with both hands, his head hanging low.
“I don't know how to let go,” he said in a voice hoarse with restrained despair.
Sam stepped forward again, moving close enough behind Ryan that he could wrap an arm around him. Ryan stood there for a second before he turned and leaned into his embrace. Sam looked at their reflection in the mirror. Ryan's blond head was nestled against him, streaks of wax down his back. For the first time he looked truly vulnerable, just as Sam had wanted to see him all along. He stroked Ryan's hair, pressing a kiss to the soft strands. 
“I'll show you, Ryan. All you have to do is trust me. I'll take care of the rest.”

Character Interview 
Questions for Detective Sam Roberts from The Detective’s Pleasure

1. Now that you’ve gotten together, what comes next?
Well, I’d like us to take some time to really get to know each other. To see what we like doing together. But before too long, I want Ryan moved in with me. I love having him around me so much and I want to sleep with him every night.

2. What was the hardest thing for you to overcome that you didn’t expect to be an issue?
That sometimes I’m an idiot. I thought I was so smart in giving Ryan what he needed. But I messed up pretty big. I’ll have to remember to always think and not be so casual about some things.

3. Who or what makes you laugh out loud?
Lots of things. I laugh pretty easily. I like comedy movies and going to stand-up comedy shows. Ryan’s never been to one, so I’m planning on taking him soon.

4. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Pralines and pecans. Love how it’s smooth, sweet, and nutty all at the same time.

5. What movie will you watch over and over again?
Beverly Hills Cop without a doubt. But only the first one. That one was the best.
