Load the Dice (Episode One)
by Moriah Gemel



Eric left the BDSM scene years ago because he couldn’t find the right partner, opting instead to meet men in quiet coffee shops and piano bars. But when his friend invites him to a posh hook-up party, he meets first time sub Jamie, who he convinces to detail his sexual fantasies during a passionate night together.

 The pair soon embark on a relationship that introduces Jamie to the BDSM scene, and plays out his fantasies one by one. But as they approach the final fantasy, will Eric be able to walk away?



Andy pets Leta’s hair and gives her temple a kiss. “I want you to go get me and my friend here drinks, pet,” she tells Leta, her voice firm and commanding. “You know what I like. Man candy here will have a whiskey ginger.”
Eric takes the opportunity of her distraction to look around. The room is all glass and chrome and black-and-white fabrics, set stiffly in straight lines matching up perfectly to the walls. There's no character to it, and Eric is overcome with a momentary fantasy of everyone in the room being robotic, just to match the weird perfection of the room they're in.
When Leta’s gone, Eric shakes his head to clear it of the image and turns on Andy, poking her hip hard and wishing it was enough to topple her. “Did you bring me to a scene party?”
Andy smiles at him sweetly. It doesn't match her face.
“What the hell, Andy?” he hisses. “You know I stopped doing this—”
“Only because your last boy toy was about as vanilla as a latte—”
“I only did it because of a boy toy in the first place.”
“And you were never happier,” Andy says evenly, staring him down, even brushing her short dark hair out of her eyes to give her a clear shot. “Even though Stanley was ten times more tolerable when you had him gagged as when you let his mouth flap. This is who you are, Eric. You shouldn’t deny that, because there’s nothing wrong with it. So look around, play the game, find a sub, and enjoy your whiskey—”

  1. Thank you so much for hosting! It's much appreciated.

  2. Love the cover and sounds like a great reading. Can't wait to read it!

    1. I'm so grateful to have such a gorgeous cover. Thank you so much!

  3. Hi Moriah :) I find the cover interesting, subtle and not overtly linked to the topic within, I am wondering is the symbolism of the dice by its image and the title 'Load the Dice' , linked to something that is preordained (loaded dice and will always fall a certain way) and true to his (Eric's) character?

  4. The symbolism of the dice links to the idea of cheating--taking the easy way, rather than the risky way. The problem is, Eric doesn't know before he throws if the dice are loaded or not, so to speak. Relationships can be like a game of dice--you have to keep throwing to keep winning. Eric has to figure out if the ease of his connection with Jamie is just some temporary luck or if he's been given a loaded set that will always win, and if he wants to keep throwing knowing that the next throw might just be a losing one.
