For Kai Robicheau, being in the club brings out who he truly is.
What happens in the Play Room will have you aching for more . . .
âAlexandria, this is Jared from Society X. How are you?â
I gasp and look around, hoping like hell the woman beside me couldnât hear. âYes, hi. Iâm doing good. You?â Grabbing my bottle of water, I hurry off the stair climber to a vacant corner across the room.
âCanât complain. Iâm calling because I have a proposition you might be interested in. You put in your application that youâre open to anything. Is that correct?â
My cheeks burn like fire. âYeah, I guess so. What exactly is this proposition?â
He clears his throat. âI have a client who has particular tastes, or fetishes if you prefer. His partner canât make it tonight, and I need to fill that spot.â
Swallowing hard, my heart races. Iâm nervous just hearing him talk about it. âWhat will I have to do?â
âYou, absolutely nothing. All youâll have to do is lie there on your stomach while your partner massages your backside.â
âYou mean my back?â I ask.
He clears his throat again. âNo, your ass.â
I donât know what comes over me, but I burst out laughing. âYouâre joking, right?â
âNo, Iâm not.â
I hush up quickly. âI honestly didnât know that was a thing. Itâs an interesting concept.â
âIs it something youâd be interested in? You donât have to be naked. Your upper body will be covered by a curtain so you can wear a shirt. However, below your waist, youâll need to wear a thong.â
Keeping a straight face and not laughing is going to be the hardest part of the whole thing. How can someone get off by rubbing someoneâs ass? âSure, put me down. What time do I need to be there?â I say it before even really thinking it through.
âEight oâclock. Iâll see you then,â Jared says.
We hang up, and I head straight for the gym door. Thereâs no way I can keep something like that a secret from my friends. Once outside, I call Dani.
âWhatâs up, girl?â
I rush to my car and hop inside. âYou will not believe the phone call I just got.â
âWhatâs going on?â
I havenât told her about being a member of Society X yet. âI kind of became a member of Society X.â
âHoly shit,â she squeals. âSeriously? Why didnât you tell me at work today?â
Sighing, I pull out of the parking lot for home. âHonestly, I didnât think Iâd get a request so fast. My contact called me and said he had a proposition for me. And get this, itâs for the play room. The guy wants to massage my ass.â
Daniâs cackle is so loud I have to hold the phone away from my ear. âThatâs priceless. Please tell me you said yes.â
I groan. âUnfortunately. What if I burst out laughing while this dudeâs squeezing my butt cheeks?â
Daniâs laughing so hard Iâm surprised she can even breathe. âI donât know what to say. This is too funny. What kind of freak gets off on someoneâs ass?â
âObviously, the man Iâm about to give my ass to.â Iâm starting to think I made a mistake accepting the proposition. At least, Iâll have a good story to tell later. âWish me luck.â
âGood luck, chickee. I want all the details.â
On the way home, I glance at myself in the mirror. What the hell am I doing?
