Audio Tour, Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway:
Baring It All
By D.G. Carothers


Narrated by Christopher Rourke

Welcome to Bear Essentials, where caring for the outside of you from head to toe is our specialty.

Basil Paddington is living his dream. He’s built from the ground up a safe space for anyone to get the services they need to feel beautiful. He’s very proud of the work he’s done and the life he’s built.

He has a successful business, friends, and a lovely cat named Arnold. What more could he possibly need?

Basil gave up long ago on finding love, much less someone who accepted who he was sexually. He has his kinks and a very healthy sex life, in his opinion. Little does he know that there is someone right under his nose that’s perfect for him.

While Bear Essentials specializes in making the outside beautiful to each client’s own eye, it’s below the surface where we find the most surprises.

Bear Essentials is a new series set in the same town as Kink Files. Join us as we follow the folks who work at Bear Essentials as they find love and their Happily Ever After.

Attention: This book contains explicit sexual content between consenting adults. There are depictions of sounding, needle play, and fuck machines.

Exclusive Excerpt from Baring It All

A little while later, I thought Dylan had fallen asleep, but instead, he surprised me with his words. “You’d make a great Daddy. You know that?”

“I don’t want kids, actually.” I huffed a little. I didn’t understand some people’s obsession with kids.

Dylan smirked and smacked my belly lightly. “Not that kind of Daddy.”

“Oh.” I laughed.

“You’re kind, attentive, nurturing, and you like to take care of people.” He drew circles with a finger on my stomach as he talked, keeping his head lowered like he couldn’t say those things while looking at me out of nervousness or something akin. I wasn’t sure.

“I think all partners should be that way, though. I think oftentimes people make Daddy synonymous with Dominant.” I tilted my chin down to try to see more of Dylan.

“I can see that. I think D/s couples have a better chance of survival than more traditional ones.”

“All relationships take trust, honesty, and honest communication regardless of kink or not. Kink relationships require more of that, I think. Else you can hurt each other more physically and emotionally. Being a good partner, whether Dominant or submissive, is a lot of give and take on both sides. I think too often these days some guys look for a Daddy, thinking that they’ll do everything for them. They won’t have to do anything in return, or they’re looking for someone to rescue them, usually from their own decisions.” I sighed and ran my other hand through my hair.

Dylan laughed at me. “Have some experience with that, do you?”

“Actually, no. I see it in the way it’s talked about online, in books, and in how some guys approach others in clubs.” I shook my head. “And yeah, I may have had a boy or two come on to me just looking for an easy ride.”

“You went to a club? When was this?” His perfect lips, with their heart-shaped peaks, stayed open in exaggerated shock.

I rolled my eyes. “Okay, it was a few years ago,” I cleared my throat and mumbled, “or more.”

“When was the last time you went on a date?”

“Oh no. We are not going there.”
