Doms have fears, too by Eva Lefoy

Even if your main character is a top, a Dom, and not a submissive, it’s important to remember that Doms are people too. First and foremost, they’re human. They usually show up in the author’s mind after having several failed prior relationships and are looking for love. Mmmm love. Should the author decide to take up the Dom’s case and give them the love they seek, they have to do so with a few things in mind.

  1. Doms are people who’ve been hurt in the past, too. Don’t just focus on the submissive partner’s past hurts and needs. It’s likely the Dom has had his/her heart broken a time a two as well. 
  2. Use that backstory to re-open old wounds. In Dom of Destruction, Gar suffers Brian being hurt the same way his former sub, Angel was. Even though it’s not Gar’s fault, he still feels the same pain. That pain propels him toward the climax of his storyline – where he must come face to face with his fears.
  3. Doms have fears, too. Even if they’re as big as a house and as strong as an ox, they still have fears. Fears of intimacy, fears of hurting their sub, fears of being rejected, etc. All the usual fears that humans can and have had for thousands of years. Sure, they’re all Dom and all business in the bedroom, but outside of a scene, who are they really? What do they really fear?
  4. Lastly, Doms are often hard on themselves and suffer guilt and worry over their role. Even if it’s two guys in the relationship, and both of them are completely into it on a consensual basis, the Dom can still get hurt. In Dom of Destruction, we find out that Gar’s ex, Angel, pushed him past his comfort zone. Angel wanted Gar to hurt him more and more, (we find out why and it’s a shocker for Gar), but the beatings Angel wanted left Gar wounded and scarred. He didn’t adequately protect himself, probably because he loved Angel and would have done anything for him.

So you see, Gar has a lot a pain in his past and he’s looking for love. In the modern world, love can be hard to come by. And even when it’s staring Gar in the face, he has a hard time acquiescing to the terms. Which only proves he’s human and needs love too!

Thanks for reading,


Dom of Destruction, book III in the Love Hurts series:
When new and impulsive sub, Brian is injured in a bad scene, the incident opens old wounds for his sometimes-Dom, Gar. While doling out revenge, Gar must come to terms with his fear of relationships and learn the shocking truth about his former lover, Angel.

Meanwhile, Paul’s uncontrolled jealousy of Brian comes to light and Geoffrey threatens to cancel their engagement if he won’t get his anger under control. In different ways the aftermath of the sadistic Dom’s destructive force puts these four men on the track to future happiness, but some will suffer more scars than others. 
Warning: The MC in this story is baited into a scene of BDSM play and is abused. 

EXCERPT – Brian takes Gar to task over his plethora of subs:
Whoa. Gar’s mind whirled as he tried to figure out Brian’s sudden mood swing. What the hell was this? Everything was going so well—or so he’d thought. But Brian’s attitude had just done a one-eighty. He watched with growing dismay as Brian shoved his cock back into his pants and zipped up. “What are you talking about?”
“I mean, we need to talk about your other subs, Gar.”
His jaw tightened and he stood to zip up his own pants. Apparently the night’s fun had ended. Hell, I was just getting warmed up. “That’s kind of a sore subject, do you mind if we put it off for another time?”
“A sore subject?” Brian’s tone sliced though the room with the grace of a butcher knife on metal. “You want to talk about sore?”
Freaking a. They’d gone right back to Tuesday night at the club as though they hadn’t missed a beat.
“I’m the one that’s sore here.” Brian jabbed a finger at his own chest and somehow managed to get himself off balance.
Gar reached out to steady him, and got glared at for his efforts. “Look, Brian. I don’t want to argue. I thought we were having a great time…”
“We were. But I remembered why I left the club in the first place. Gar, I don’t want to be Mr. Thursday night to you. If that’s all I am, then go, and I’ll find myself another Dom.”
That did it. Gar crowded into Brian’s space and backed him against the desk. “Don’t you even think about being with anybody else. I’m the one who’s gonna take care of you the way you need. I don’t want you having anything to do with these other bastards. I mean it. I won’t stand to see you hurt again.”
Brian, to his credit, stood his ground and didn’t back down. Not even an inch. If Brian hadn’t spent most of his life as a top, he probably would have acted differently. Gar hated to admit it, but he liked Brian’s spunk. When it wasn’t coming close to literally causing his death.
“Then give us—this—whatever this is between us a chance.”
“I am.”
“I mean exclusively.”
He swallowed the lump stuck in his throat. Damned if he’d tell Brian he hadn’t been able to see a single one of his subs all of last week. He wasn’t ready for that kind of honesty. “Brian…”
“I don’t share well, Gar. Ask Geoffrey if you don’t believe me. If you aren’t willing to have me as your only sub then this is over, now.”
“That’s not fair.” He fisted his hands, the thought of ringing sense into Brian becoming more alluring by the second.
“Too bad.” Brian shoved at Gar’s chest and Gar moved back. Not because he wanted to go, or Brian really had the strength to make him, but because he wouldn’t allow Brian to hurt himself, even accidentally. “According to Geoffrey, the subs make the rules. If you really are a Dom and want to fulfill my needs, then you’ll want to fulfill this one, too.”
He sucked in a long breath. The hell. Is he questioning my Domhood? You’ve got to be kidding. He’s still a newbie sub in diapers. “If I wasn’t such a well-established Dom I wouldn’t have so many subs under me.”
“If you weren’t so afraid of having a relationship, you wouldn’t need all those subs to dilute your attention.”
The words stabbed straight though Gar’s heart and left a gaping hole as an exit wound. What the hell does he know about my needs? It’s not like I’m afraid, damn it.
