“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:

Today we're happy to interview Officer Ryan Bennett from The Detective’s Pleasure:

  1. What impression do you make on people when they first meet you? How about after they've known you for a while?
I think most people probably don’t get a good vibe off me at first. I can be a little standoffish and I take a while to warm up to people. So most probably think I’m not very friendly. But after I get a chance to know them a little better, they normally realize I’m not an asshole, I’m just reserved.

  1. What's your idea of a good marriage? Do you think that'll happen in your life?
I think a good marriage is partners being there for each other. Being in love and comfortable with each other and having the same goals is important. And I know people say that passion fades, but I don’t believe that. I think passion evolves and changes, but if you truly love and desire your spouse that passion will always be there in one form or another. I hope it will happen for me. It’s legal in Texas now, so we’ll see.

  1. Do you think you've turned out the way your parents expected?
Probably. They know I’ve wanted to be a cop since I was a kid. I don’t think they expected me to be gay. But my Dad fought with men who were gay. When I came out, he told me that who a man chose to be with didn’t matter as long as he did his job and kept his brothers safe.

  1. What's the worst thing you've ever done to someone? Why?
These questions are making me a little uncomfortable. But if you have to know, the worst thing I’ve ever done was try to break up Logan and Clay. And I did it because I was selfish and wanted Logan for myself.

  1. What do you like best about Sam? Least?
The thing I love best about Sam is the way he takes care of me. I’ve never had anyone treat me the way he does. I didn’t even realize how amazing it would feel. I love it and I hope he never stops. The thing I like the least? He listens to country music all the time. I’m more of an alternative rock guy myself. I might hide his radio for a while, but I’ll probably end up in his cage as punishment.
