My relationship with Jared has lasted too long. He's mesmerizing, beautiful in his devotion, pure in his need. He reaches parts of me I thought no longer existed, places I'd never known were there. His submission is a gift. His cries of pleasure and pain call to the most primal parts of me. I want to inhale him, own him, mark him as mine. He's my boy and I need to be his Daddy, but my fear holds me back. I'll fail him like I've failed everyone else I've loved. Before that happens, I'll walk away.
I've never known security, love, or true pleasure before Kieran. With every touch, every command, every second of blissful, torturous pain, my heart grows and my soul is at peace. He protects me, spoils me, gives me what I need. Still, in some ways, he's closed off and won't let me in. But Kieran's given me strength. I've evolved, and won't accept less than I deserve...and I won't let Daddy accept less than he deserves, either.
It's a delicate balance: give and take, pleasure and pain. Together we can break each other down to our purest forms and build each other up again. Kieran always says I'm stronger than I think, but I know that together we're invincible...if only he'd believe me.
We have two choices: say goodbye or fight for what's always been out of both our reaches...fulfillment.
Warning: Jared's Fulfillment contains BDSM elements, domestic discipline, spanking, and daddy kink--without age play--between consenting adults. If any of those things offend you, reading this book might not be a good idea.
Jared's Evolution and Jared's Fulfillment must be read in order.

You can expect the mental and emotional journey to be led by the physical/s*xual moments--which will be intense, frequent and kinky.

I'm so glad I continued to read this. I enjoyed this book more than the first one. This book was definitely more emotional. There was better character development and I loved that we got some of Kieran's POV.
The angst and emotion in this story felt more real. As we get more background on Jared and Kieran in this book, it made me feel more of a connection to them. Their pasts certainly aren't all hearts and rainbows and I felt the tugging at my heart.
I did love all the information into the BDSM Dom/Sub/Daddy/Boy relationship in the book. It gives you more insight and helps differentiate the whole Daddy/Boy v. Dom/Sub. Even though there were times where it just all felt the same to me but at any rate it was well written. Still not as kinky for me and although this was more on the emotional side, it was still.....sweet. The sex scenes yet again were hot as hell. Not my favorite from this author but she still did a good job on delivering Jared and Kieran's conclusion.

“Come here, boy. Your tie isn’t straight.”
I walked over to Kieran and tilted my head up so he could fix my tie. It was silly how good it made me feel, since it was such a simple thing to do for someone, but I loved it when Kieran did the small things. Sometimes, I didn’t think people realized how much the small things mattered, but he did. Kieran thought of everything.
I smiled because I knew it brought him joy too.
“What are you grinning at?” he asked as he finished.
“You,” I told him, and then added, “Thank you, Daddy.”
“So beautiful when you say that to me.” He rubbed his thumb across my bottom lip. “I love to watch your mouth when you call me Daddy.” He cupped my cheek, leaned in and pressed a soft kiss to my lips. I savored it, nearly melting into him. Kieran reached me on a bone-deep level. My body had a visceral reaction to him any time he was in the same room. And the reaction had grown over the last month, since the night of the play. It was then when I’d quietly decided to show Kieran how much I loved him, with my service to him. When I’d decided to secretly fight for us, the best way I knew how.
“Finish getting ready. I’ll put bagels on,” he told me, pressing another quick kiss to my mouth.
“Thank you,” I replied, before watching Kieran walk out of the room. I loved the way he moved—the power in the way he held his body. The dominance in him. He filled me in ways I never knew I needed, in ways that left me forever changed. He was everything to me and I couldn’t deny that. I didn’t want to. I wanted to bask in it because, for the first time in my life, I truly understood what it was like to be happy. Secure. At peace. Protected.
After walking over to Kieran’s dresser, I plucked a pair of socks from the top drawer, pulled them onto my feet, and then slipped on my shoes before I met him in the kitchen.
“You’re going to lunch with Marco today?” he confirmed. Marco and I had begun spending quite a bit of time together. He was funny and understanding. He always answered my questions and freely shared his own stories with me. I truly liked him and was thankful for this new friendship.
I walked over to help but he said, “Sit. I’ll take care of it.”
Another smile pulled at my lips; I loved the feeling of Kieran caring for me…of him telling me what to do. It made my head spin in the best sort of way. It was amazing, really, the way this lifestyle had changed me. The way it had grounded me—strengthened me. It’s not something I would have believed before my relationship with Kieran. It’s not something most people could likely understand but then…why did anyone else have to understand it? It was the way we chose to live. People often forgot that because something was wrong for them, it didn’t mean it was wrong for everyone, or hell, that it was wrong in any way.
(Jared & Kieran Book #1)
He wants to dominate me…to discipline me. He wants me to call him Daddy…
I’ve always taken care of myself—worked hard to become king of the courtroom and excel in the cutthroat business of winning cases. I’m fierce…brutal…confident. I’m a lie. Underneath my armor, I’m drowning, losing myself under the weight of life. At thirty-three years old, I should be able to handle the pressure.
My neighbor Kieran sees past my spotless suits and manufactured control to the real Jared. The one who secretly craves being dominated, to serve, and to give up control—not just in the bedroom, but in every aspect of my personal life.
I can’t want this…but I do… When I’m under Kieran’s command—spanked, rewarded and caged—I’m free. With Kieran’s care and guidance, my mind is unburdened as my body soars to new heights, and Kieran becomes what we both need him to be: Daddy.
It’s a journey of dominance and submission—of rules, schedules, security and discipline. He opens my world, teaches me, changes me…but he doesn’t let me in. It’s temporary, Daddy tells me, and I’d be wise to remember that, so I don’t get hurt.

From what I read from this author so far I've enjoyed her work immensely. So I was excited to read this book because it was supposedly far from her norm. I'm not sure what happened here and I'm really torn because I love this author. It wasn't a complete bust because there were moments in the book that I genuinely enjoyed but I'm not sure this was one of her best stories.
The start of Jared and Kieran's relationship is really awkward. There was no real build up and I felt no connection to the characters. I don't know, maybe it just wasn't more emotional or kinky enough for me. I just think this fell a little flat and I just wasn't feeling the whole Daddy thing.
Riley Hart made a great effort with Jared and Kieran's journey. I need to see how this one plays out. Eventually Jared and Kieran grew on me and I was rooting for them to find the peace they're book looking for. For me, it wasn't an all consuming read but the sex scenes were great! ;)
