— No discipline until you’ve had your greens! —
Mike doesn’t like overcomplicating things. At thirty two, he’s nowhere near settling down and divides his time between his construction job and the pub. Then his life becomes everything but simple when his coworkers catcall the wrong person, and Mike ends up punished for it. Which doesn’t seem all that bad, since he loves punishment and discipline.
Loves it so much in fact, that he will do anything for more licks from the sexy crossdresser’s belt.
Living in a state of perfect domestic bliss where he does as he’s told, and in turn gets freshly baked cookies and his laundry done, lines blur all too quickly, and it might just be Momma not Mike who is skittish about relationships.
Despite all the hoops he has to jump through, nothing can scare Mike away, because he is a good boy and he will prove it no matter what punishments Momma has him endure!

When K.A. Merikan, the dynamic duo write there are content warnings it’s not a joke. The authors know how to play with taboos, with crazy ideas and let their character sometimes act very unventional. If you love all this, this duo will give you one of the best kinky and unique stories you ever read. I admit I have to be in the right mood to “endure” the books by the author duo but when I’m into them I can’t put the books down. The same was with Under his Stiletto, a novella with a taboo role play with a Mommy-kink, discipline play and punishment.
I really liked that the character almost totally stayed in character, with just a few, fitting exeptions this book was what the title is suggesting: a taboo, role play where a man is dressing as a woman and in charge of the “son” she gets with Mike.
I also was pleasantly surprised by the open talk Mike and Momma aka Jeremy have, Momma explains why she (she insists of using female pronouns) is wearing the clothes, the reason behind and Mike is more than happy to have Momma in his life. I also loved the vulnerability shown in the book, behind the role play and keeping in character we see a different side of Momma/Jeremy.
The book was a really good read, very different to what I normally read and some parts were hard on my limit but with keeping the rules and being in character as well as the whole setting I could get my head better into the kink. I could see the commitment and the talking was good and necessary because this way not only Mike and Momma are on the same page, it gives the reader a security too. 5 out of 5 stars. Sometimes you want to read a kinky story with a taboo topic and not being stopped by your own head, this is a great book for this purpose. 🙂
