Working Out the Kinks Series, Book 2
M/M Romance/Daddy/puppy play
Release Date: 08.02.19
“I’ve never thought of calling a man Daddy before, but I can’t think of a word that fits Vale better. He’s my Daddy, and I’m his pup.”
Broken and bruised, there’s nothing I won’t do to protect Adrian. I picked him up and made him whole before, and I’ll do it again. Adrian is a sweet pup with a smile full of sunshine and a heart made for love. A sweet pup needs a gentle hand, and that’s exactly what I intend to give him.
There’s nothing quite like slipping an expensive pair of high heels onto Adrian’s feet and watching him light up. If he wants a fairytale, I’ll happily be his Prince Charming.
*Heel is the second book in the Working Out the Kinks series but can be read as a stand-alone. This book contains a scene of domestic violence. This book also contains an adorable man who loves to be a puppy, fabulous high heels, and the happily ever after Adrian deserves.

Oh, I love Adrian, he’s just such a sweetheart!!
I really enjoyed this story. It’s so easy to read, with just the right amount of tension, danger, and lust and so much heart and healing!!! It was a great foray into puppy play and puppy space (which I haven’t really read before, but oh my, I’m intrigued). I felt like there was so much to Adrian and I loved his journey and strength and I feel Kyleen did a fantastic job of making Adrian’s abuse relatable, compassionate and transformative, which abuse of is. I love when characters feel so real, like real people, they come alive and their story means so much more. Kyleen does this so well!!
I really liked the Vale. I haven’t read Stay (Book 1) so didn’t know any of the characters and feel I might have been missing something with Vale (like his physical description) but his heart and feelings were wonderful and I loved his care and protectiveness of Adrian. I feel they worked really well together. I kind of wanted more. More background into Adrian’s past, why did he leave home at 16 and how did he survive 2 years before finding Vale? I loved the journey we were taken on and KM Neuhold is still one of my fav authors, I look forward to more in this series and more puppy fun!! I really enjoyed this one!!!

“If you’re not careful, you’re going to spoil me,” Adrian warns as I hold the spoon to his lips to feed him the last bite of our dessert.
“I already told you, you’re mine. It’s my prerogative to spoil my pup if I want to.”
The happiness on his face is worth a little bit of spoiling.
Eventually we leave the restaurant, and I claim his hand for our walk back to the car.
“Oh shoot, my shoe strap is all messed up, hold on one second,” he says as we make our way down the sidewalk.
Without hesitation, I stoop down, my knees hitting the rough pavement, no doubt doing a number on my fancy ass pants, but I couldn’t give less of a fuck. I find the offending strap, twisted and rubbing against the delicate ridge of Adrian’s foot. Nimbly, I slide my finger under it to right it. Adrian wobbles on his feet briefly, his hands clutching at my shoulders for balance before he topples.
When his strap is fixed, I tilt my head to look up at him, his slight frame towering over me for a change, a look of awe and surprise painting his pretty face. I take his right hand off my shoulder and bring it to my lips, brushing a kiss on his palm before standing up and brushing off my pants.
“Thank you, sir,” he says in a breathy sort of whisper.
“Hey, none of that ‘sir’ stuff,” I scold gently. Normally, I’d let a pup call me whatever he likes, but after what Adrian went through at the hands of the last man he called sir, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
“What should I call you then?” he asks, curiosity and a hint of playfulness dipping into his tone.
Daddy, I want to say. The overwhelming need to take care of him and love him almost knocks the breath out of me. It’s such an intimate word; do I have the right to ask for it yet?
“Please, tell me,” he begs when I don’t answer right away.
“Daddy,” I say, keeping my eyes locked on his to gauge his reaction. His pupils dilate, and his cheeks pink again.
“Daddy,” he whispers, the word sounding entirely too perfect. I lean forward so I can taste it on his lips. He sways close, clutching my chest with his good hand as he sighs into my mouth.
“Let’s go home, Sunshine,” I suggest, nipping at his bottom lip.
Author K.M.Neuhold is a complete romance junkie, a total sap in every way. She started her journey as an author in new adult, MF romance, but after a chance reading of an MM book she was completely hooked on everything about lovely- and sometimes damaged- men finding their Happily Ever After together. She has a strong passion for writing characters with a lot of heart and soul, and a bit of humor as well. And she fully admits that her OCD tendencies of making sure every side character has a full backstory will likely always lead to every book having a spin-off or series. When she’s not writing she’s a lion tamer, an astronaut, and a superhero…just kidding, she’s likely watching Netflix and snuggling with her husky while her amazing husband brings her coffee.
