In her southern hometown, Leslie knows where she stands. A divorced mother with a preteen daughter should be able to expect certain things in life. She fantasizes about the naughty things she reads in her bodice ripper romance novels but she knows that kind of thing isn’t realistic. She just hopes to find a love that won’t fizzle out with time. Enter Stuart Altmann, a friend-of-a-friend who appears to be suitable: a down-to-earth businessman with a heart of gold and a sweet smile.
But Stuart is more than he appears. The perfectly tailored suits he wears hide a complex man with hidden assets and twisted desires. His hidden passions force her to rethink her ideas of what is appropriate. Not all businessmen are stoic, not all pain is bad, and all the money in the world can’t buy you happiness if you don’t understand who you really are.
About the Author:
Rebekah Jonesy is a work from home wife. A voracious reader, she decided it was time she made her own contributions. She has been writing for most of her life but only started publishing in 2014. Her books are contemporary romance with a variety of kinks thrown in. Understanding that human sexuality is as complex as the people are, she strives to show the reality of love as her characters work to find their happily ever after. Outside of the literary world, she is a mad scientist cook, gardener, Jill of all trades, and military spouse.
Why did you decide to write in your genre?
I was tired of seeing the same ole love stories. Boy meets girl, boy has to meet objectives to win girl, boy succeeds and gets girl, live happily ever after. I’ve never seen a love story like that in real life. I see people come together with a hundred different little things they have to resolve in order to make things work. I see loving couples stifle their own sexuality because they think that will make it work, because they grew up on those same ole love stories. I wanted to read something that was real, something where sex was more than a magic spell he casts on her to stake his claim. It can be magical, but it is also raw and primal and it takes compromise, trust and understanding. I wanted to read something that was like the things I had been scribbling down for years. I wasn’t finding the stories I wanted to read, so I decided to write them instead. That and 50 Shades of Grey got so many things wrong. Safe Sane and Consensual are the bdsm words to live by, and that was completely ignored in all the books. What motivated the story of the Book?
Unsuitable is about Stuart Altmann who made his debut in my first book Keep Her Safe. He is a friend of the main character in that book and when he realizes she is dabbling in bondage he gives her advice on how to go about it safely. He is then overcome with worry thinking his friends will judge him because of his kinks. I knew as soon as I finished writing about Stu that he would have to have a book of his own. His pain was so real, so poignant, I needed to write his happily ever after. When Leslie cropped up I knew they were a perfect match. I had to show that not all doms are the super jealous, super alpha, “my way or the highway”, “I can buy your love” types. Some are sweet loving men that want to find a loving companion to tie up and whip to mind shattering orgasms.
A short intro to your characters:
Stuart Altmann is a self made billionaire. But no one outside of the business world knows it. And only a select few people know about his kinks, kinks that require safe words and lots of leather. His quiet, austere demeanor with his friends and his calm, commanding presence with his employees hides the growing loneliness he feels from keeping himself hidden. Living two lives is hard enough when you are a super hero, it’s even harder when you think you might be seen as a villain. So he hides in his suit and in his dungeon. Leslie is a sweet southern hometown girl whose marriage ended in a flop. She and her ex should have been a perfect match, but they just couldn’t find lasting happiness. Now she is a single mom trying to find a suitable partner and a good male role model for her daughter. She is a good person that has always tried to live a good life. Her only vice is the growing pile of romance books hidden in her bedroom. She has to keep them hidden so her daughter won’t see the cover art of women in chains, men in leather, and artfully coiled whips. Everyone knows that things like that, billionaires that swoop down on young virgins and turn them into sexual goddesses in their dungeons, is only fantasy and isn’t something that could happen to a sweet southern woman.
