Kissing Bandits Character Interview: Bound by Juliet Braddock

The Interview: Maxine Kirk and Benjamin Worthington

KB: Welcome to Kissing Bandits Blog! Tell us a little bit about yourself!

Maxine Kirk: Well, thank you, Michele and Kissing Bandits for hosting us today! I’m Maxine Kirk. I’m a theatrical publicist in New York, and living my dreams to the fullest…including my marriage to my very own teenage crush (and star on Broadway)—Drew McKenzie.

Benjamin Worthington: And I’m Ben Worthington, Maxine’s Gay Boyfriend. Not to be confused with her real boyfriend…now husband…Drew. But he was detained this afternoon. He’s an actor. He had rehearsal for his next show. But I love taking sloppy seconds. And he’s willing to share Max. So here I am!

KB: The first kiss sets the tone for a relationship. Tell us about your first kiss. (Excerpt okay!) Were you nervous? Excited? Shocked?

MK: My first kiss with Drew, or my first kiss with Ben?

BW: Oh, your first kiss with Drew was boring. So he kissed you on a balcony overlooking the twinkling light of Manhattan in the middle of a torrential downpour? It was so Streisand. (Ben clears his throat and begins to sing Barbra.) “Kiss me in the rain…”

MK: Hey, Drew left me breathless.

BW: My first kiss didn’t leave you breathless? That sloppy, drunken smash of my lips to your cheek on the way back from some college party? And I even said to you, “You are my best friend, Captain…”

MK: I’m pretty sure that you bruised my face.

BW: And you liked it, you sassy submissive, you…

KB: Maxine, how did you get the nickname “Captain”?

MK: Well, this one night back in college, Ben was drunk. Again.

BW: And so was the Captain.

MK: Two beers.

BW: You were drunk!

MK: Two beers, and we were bored. It was a Friday night. Spent the last of our cash on the beer. We really couldn’t find any good reality TV. But we kept flipping through the channels, and suddenly, we found a Star Trek Marathon. And all of a sudden, Ben just started rolling around all over the floor, giggling like a wild hyena.

BW: I wasn’t that drunk.

MK: Just admit it, Ben.

BW: Your Dad’s gonna read this.

MK: Not unless you show it to him!

BW: I love Papa Kirk!

MK: Everyone loves Papa Kirk! Now…pardon our behavior here today, Kissing Bandits. Let me continue. So there’s Ben, rolling all over the floor, pointing at me and shouting, “You’re Captain Kirk! You’re Captain Kirk!”

BW: You’d never even watched an episode of Star Trek before that!

MK: Still haven’t.

BW: Well, maybe you should—oh, Captain, my Captain!

KB: What has been your greatest challenge?

BW: On a serious note…being gay. My parents didn’t accept me for a number of years, and my mother is only coming around now. Maxine’s parents always welcomed me and just loved me the way I am. That was tough for me. Now, though, I work with LGBTQ youth at the first high school of its kind in Manhattan. I want to give back to them and let them know that they’re gonna be just fine—and that they are worthy of love just the way they are.

MK: Likewise, my greatest challenge was a sobering one. I lost my mom when I was in college. Living each day without her has been painful. She didn’t get to see me live out my dream of moving to New York. She never saw the success I’ve had in

my career. And most of all, she’s missed every moment since I met and married Drew. But I have a strong network of people I love and who love me back. Each and every one of them has stepped in to fill her shoes in her absence. I’m one lucky girl.

KB: Brag time–what is your greatest point of pride?

MK: Staving off an orgasm for an entire afternoon while driving through France with Drew…while he tortured and teased me the entire trip!

BW: Uh, your dad’s gonna read this.

MK: Ooops!

KB: Name 3 of your favorite things.

MK: Polkadots. Paris. And Paddles.

BW: Lady Gaga. Real Housewives of New York. Lady Gaga. Can I add one more? Lady Gaga.

KB: Turn-ons?

MK: Hairbrushes.

BW: Edible cinnamon panties.

MK: Like the pair you ate at my wedding shower?

KB: Turn-offs?

MK: Tickling. It’s the only true way that Kind Sir can punish me, since I love pain so much.

BW: Do we have to discuss your sex life again?

MK: It’s by far more interesting than your Vanilla World.

BW: Hey, Jeffrey and I occasionally enjoy a night of role play.

MK: Do we have to talk about your sex life again?

KB: Share a funny or interesting anecdote (excerpt okay!)

BW: Oooh!  Oooh! I have one!

MK: (Burying her face with her hands) Oh, no! Ben knows where all the bodies are buried!

BW: How about the first time that Drew slept over when we were still roomies?

MK: He’s going to hurt you for this, you do realize that, right?

BW: He’s all bark and no bite.

MK: (Clutching her stomach with a deep groan): Here we go…

BW: Captain here thought she was so slick, sneaking her actor friend into her bedroom in the middle of the night. She never even really dated—imagine how surprised I was to find this studly…

MK: Benjamin

BW: Muscled…

MK: Come on!

BW: Oh, he has a six-pack, and you’ve written your name all over it.

MK: Stop, please?

BW: Lo and behold…it was very early that Saturday morning, and as I rubbed the sleep from my eyes, I stumbled into the kitchen to find Adonis in his boxer briefs, burning toast for his newly beloved for breakfast!

MK: (Blushing crimson) Oh, this chagrin is going to swallow me whole…

BW: At least he felt bad and we got a new toaster out of it—and a fire extinguisher!

MK: Oh, I hope Drew spanks me for all of this…

BW: Have faith, Cap. Where there’s a Drew…there’s a way…

What is Bound about?

Through dungeons and castles in the most glamorous cities around the world, Drew, a rising star on Broadway, brought publicist Maxine’s wanton desires to life. Five years later, changes have come to their lives, and Drew and Maxine find themselves facing a life-altering decision. Although their pursuit of kinky pleasures never wanes, will they discover that the happiest place on earth really is right in their own chaotic home?

Excerpt from Bound:

Bound Final - ebookOUCH!” she wailed, panting for breath as the fifth strike of Drew’s leather belt sliced over her ass. “Fuckballs!”

“Excuse me, Miss Merryweather…” Drew’s panic-stricken eyes caught hers. “My parents are staying in the next fucking room!”

Maxine should have known better than to agree to scene on a family vacation—particularly in one of the oldest seaside resorts in Provincetown. However, Drew had a way of coercing her, and she found her arms tethered to the four-poster bed, bound by the tie that he’d worn to dinner the previous evening. Admittedly, Drew hated using anything made of silk to restrain her, as the knot could easily slip, but Maxine had forgotten the hemp rope. This was her punishment.

“Damn in-laws…” she muttered.

“Okay, that’s it. You’re now up to fifty whacks, Miss Merryweather,” Drew said and snapped the belt through the air again. “And you’ll apologize for that remark.”

“Oh, Sir, I love them—you know I do!” she insisted. “Just…why can’t we be on another floor?”

“Because you, spoiled one,” he began, his voice carrying so menacingly between them, “wanted the fucking French suite…”

“Fuckb—”

The hand towel from the stack in the bathroom always made a great gag for Maxine—even though she always complained afterward about the fuzz in her mouth.

Kissing Bandits Interview: Juliet Braddock “Fire and Ice”

Kissing Bandits Welcomes Juliet Braddock

1. Tell us about your first kiss?
Drew and Maxine’s first kiss was rather awkward. You see, she spilled champagne all over him at a party that she had to attend for work. Of course, since Drew was Maxine’s teenage crush, she had to carefully hide from him all night…until he stalked her on the balcony. It was the SoHo Grand Hotel’s penthouse suite. All of New York City twinkled below them. And just as he captured Maxine in his arms and held her in his stronghold while he kissed her breathless, it began to rain…
2. Share one line from your story. What do you love about it?
“This whole experience left her without words, yet clamoring to tell him how she felt closer to him than ever.” In Fire and Ice, recently engaged Maxine and Drew engage in waxplay for the first time. Maxine truly embraces her submission in this story, and she proves to Drew that she trusts him implicitly. That’s what Domination and submission is all about—trust—and Maxine exemplifies at this point in their relationship.
3. What is the biggest risk you’ve ever taken?
My biggest risk in life was moving from a very small town to New York City. Here, I’ve built a career in communications all on my own, and I’m so proud of my accomplishments outside of publishing. New York has also served as my inspiration for my writing. On every corner, something is happening—there’s a story to tell. So my biggest risk was truly my greatest reward.

Dom Persusions CoverWhat happens when a blizzard immobilizes Manhattan on Valentine’s Day…and a sassy little sub is stuck in her Dungeon with her beloved Dom? With candlelight and a roaring fire to keep them warm on this frigid afternoon, sparks fly between Maxine and Drew as he attempts to cool her down with a bit of tantalizing tenderness…

 

Enjoy this excerpt of Fire and Ice by Juliet Braddock

Louboutin heels in one hand and the silky little garment in her other, she made her way to the full-length mirror to slink into her Valentine’s Day outfit. Once she’d pulled the panties on, the straps that crossed over her tummy were relatively easy to maneuver around. With bows fastened at the neck and hips, she felt like a giant Valentine’s Day gift, all wrapped in crimson just for her Kind Sir.

Mustering her poise, she made her way back toward the tiny kitchen. However, just as she began to stir the chocolate sauce, the first of the three locks on the door turned.

Juliet Braddock 2Maxine stopped suddenly, frozen in time. She hadn’t even picked up her clothes yet! Oh, Drew was going to be one Cranky Sir in about a minute.

Folding his hands together, he merely shook his head as he looked around.

“You know I don’t like to punish you on holidays, Almost Mrs. Mack…”

Protest, and he’ll do it! she thought to herself. “But the snow…and Zabar’s was packed…and I wanted to…I just…” She noticed that her voice always seemed to rise an octave when they played.

“What the hell is going on here? This isn’t your bedroom back at the old townhouse, Maxine!” He kicked her bra and sent it scudding across the floor. Through his gruff, though, Maxine could see that smile of approval as he appraised her new little outfit. In his mind, Drew was already unwrapping those bows. “Now, I come here…expecting a little Valentine’s Day release with my fiancé. There’s a mess on the floor. And dammit…she’s not in position yet.”

Turning carefully in those damn shoes, Maxine rolled her shoulders back, the tassels swinging to and fro as she swiveled.

“But I…you…we have…”

“Uh-uh-uh!” Drew raised his hand as he crossed the room toward her. “Excuses are not accepted, and you should know that by now.”

In one swift move, he’d clasped her hands in his and held them above her head as he pinned her body against the cold stainless steel refrigerator. “Should I deny you on this frigid, snowy afternoon?”

Now was her chance to spill the beans and send her punishment into overdrive. “I can do that myself, Kind Sir,” she insisted. “Without touching myself.”

Raising a brow, his pride swelled. Such a perfect submissive was she.

“Oh, yeah, Sassypants?” he challenged as he pulled his hands away to pluck at her straps. “Show me…”

Maxine took one very slow, deep breath into her lungs. Wrapping her fingers around the refrigerator door handle, she opened her green eyes wide and held his gaze as he watched her. Already, she could feel her clit twitching beneath that damp wisp of satin that covered her, and her nipples throbbed against those little pasties.

“Uhhhhhhh…” she groaned.

However, Drew couldn’t resist closing just a bit of distance between them, fearing she’d collapse and hurt herself as orgasm took hold. Placing a hand on each side of her, he was ready to catch her, just in case.

“Tell me what you’re thinking right now, Maxine.”

“I’m thinking…ohh, I’m on my knees, Sir…”

“And what are you doing in your little fantasy?”

“Sucking you…sucking you off, Sir…and I’m… oh, fuck…!

Without warning, she gripped his shoulder as she kicked her heel, scraping it against the hardwood floor. His face was so close, so intense, as she writhed before him but not against him. Drew hadn’t laid a single finger on her, yet orgasm consumed her as her body just shook with the shocks of oblivion.

Drew’s thoughts were likewise awhirl. Her sexual appetite knew no boundaries. Maxine’s need to please him—and to please herself—astounded him. Seeing her shuddering and screaming when all he’d done was simply walk in the door and give her a mild scolding nearly reduced him to ashes.

He fucking hated losing control with her, but he simply couldn’t resist slipping his hands between them to rip away those two little hearts from her nipples. He dipped his head to bite down and pulled one swollen little bud between his teeth.

“So help me, Maxine, if I come in my fucking jeans…you’re getting spanked until next Valentine’s D—”

Reality, however, struck him suddenly like a lightning bolt to a tree.

Fuckballs…

The power went out.

Kissing Bandits Welcomes Juliet Braddock

Kissing Bandits welcomes author Juliet Braddock!

The Interview

KB: Welcome to Kissing Bandits Blog! Tell us a little bit about yourself!

AmazonJB: I’m a publicist by day and writer of erotica by night. And although I was born in a small town in Pennsylvania, I’ve called New York City home for over two decades. I love art, theater, food, wine and travel — especially to France. I’m a proud fur-mama to a very spoiled, half-blind Russian Blue rescue, Coopurr…and a gushing Godmother to my best friend’s beautiful six-year old daughter.  

KB: Tell us a little bit about your most recent release.

JB: Well, my Manhattan Bound Series will continue in the fall, but this summer, I have a brand-new novella, “Professor Knows Best,” which will be published June 29 in the DIRTY DOMS Anthology. I love this story because it fulfills a double-fantasy — teacher and schoolgirl and Daddy Dom. Sloane is Justin’s best pupil in journalism school. However, Justin doesn’t want just another college girl…so he introduces her to a world of swingsets and sippy cups.

KB: What has been the most exquisite moment of your life?

JB: I’ve had many — driving through the Loire Valley in France on the perfect autumn day after having forgotten the map in the hotel room…my first full day in New York City after I’d moved here. 

But the most exquisite moment has to be when Coop was still a kitten.  He had non-healing corneal ulcers, and I had to be approved by the medical board at the shelter before I could bring him home. Meanwhile, they were trying to get him to heal a little before his adoption. I would go into the shelter a few nights a week after work to play with him.  He was a bit shy, so I wanted him to get used to me and trust me before I brought him home. When I left, I always returned him to his cage, and I would hold up my index finger and wave good-bye. I’d promise him that I’d be back, and I’d assure him that he’d be home soon.  The one night, he stuck his tiny gray paw through the cage and wrapped it around my finger.  And he squeezed it tight.  We’ve been wrapped ever since, and that was seven years ago.  

KB: Pick out one of the best lines in your novel. What do you love about it?
JB: In KNOTTED, Drew tells Maxine to take her high heels off because they’re heading into treacherous territory, and he doesn’t want her to fall.  Maxine, a true masochist who not only embraces but finds pain to be the ultimate turn-on, says to him, “You had me at treacherous, Sir…”

That line just makes me giggle every time I read it . It’s like Maxine’s little Wednesday Addams moment. She’s just indulging in the darkness and the possibility of danger.  At the same time, she trusts Drew to take her there.

 BOOKS

KB: What are your top three guilty pleasures?

JB: 1. Watching Dance Moms. I always feel like I have to make excuses for that bad habit, but the truth is, I just love trashy television.  It takes me away from the clutter of my own reality.  

2. Spending weekends in luxury hotels in New York — even though I live here. (It’s the NYC version of a staycation.) It’s just fun to take yourself outside the norm and play “Let’s Pretend…” for a couple of days. And what better way to indulge than to treat yourself to a suite with a fireplace and giant tub? Pour a glass of wine…

3. James Norton.  Yes, he’s a talented young actor…but dayum, he’s HOT! I could binge watch him in anything all day long.  In anything.
