Joining Brandi on Character Chat today is Detective and Dom Maddox Westbrook. Maddox, like his partner in the force, Detective CarterBurkes, is a frequent patron of the incredibly risqué and sexy Dallas BDSM club Restrained Fantasies. Additionally, Maddox is the hero of Brandi’s Blushing Books BDSM novel, His Battered Submissive.

 

Maddox and his leading lady, Katlyn, actually met in the previous book, Reading His Submissive, where Katlyn is abducted by her abusive husband. His Battered Submissive picks up their story several months later, as Maddox is desperately trying to find Katlyn and bring her home, all the while trying to ignore that nagging voice in the back of his mind that kept telling him that he was too late, that she was already dead…

 

Their story was an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish, so without further ado, let’s give an enormous welcome to Detective Maddox Westbrook!

 

Brandi:
Welcome Maddox! Thank you so much for dropping by to chat with me again. Like I did with your partner, Carter, I had sucha great time telling yours and Katlyn’s story. It was, well, somewhattough at times, too. Katlyn wasn’t in a good headspace when you got her back, and that was tough to see and to write. I can’t imagine how it must have been for her.

 

Maddox:
Tell me about it. I felt like she would break at every little thing. Or cry. She did that a lot in the beginning. Oh, and the nightmares tore me in two! But as hard as that was, watching her grow stronger, both physically and emotionally, was incredibly rewarding. How she went from this weak little mouse to a strong woman who—

 

Brandi:
Shh! Spoilers! We don’t want to give away too much. Still, you’re right. She grew so much over the course of the story. One of my favorite scenes toward the end was when she yelled at you! God, when you first got her back, could you imagine her ever doing something like that?!

 

Maddox:
Not even a little bit, Brandi. Kat and her inner strength never ceased to amaze me. It was good to see her growing and making friends, getting that support network her bastard of an ex made sure she didn’t have.

 

Brandi:
Yes! That was great to see her do. I especially loved her interaction with Raven! Those two cracked me up, especially that scene on the boat where they talked about—well, I should probably just keep that scene just between us girls. Sorry! (Although not really sorry.)

 

Maddox:
Hmm. I’m gonna need to ask her about that conversation. Should I be worried?

 

Brandi:
Not even a little bit. *Brandi sobers slightly* I was terribly sorry about what happened to Raven. During that scene, my heart was pounding as fast as my fingers on the keyboard.

 

Maddox:
You’re not the only one. *takes a visible breath and makes Brandi’s heart ache* Stuck in that cruiser while she was so far away, I felt absolutely helpless, and I know Carter did, too. He won’t forget that for a long, long time.

 

Brandi:
I thought Raven’s accident might break Katlyn. I was surprised she managed to hold it together as well as she did.

 

Maddox:
She surprised me, too. I’m in awe of her. I don’t think I’ve ever met a single person as strong and resilient as she is.

 

Brandi:
Your love for her came through so clearly and easily. *resists urge to take his hand in support* You were so gentle and patient with her—until the night you weren’t. Seeing you finally slip into full Dom mode in the club that night, god. *Brandi chuckles* I’d lie if I said I hadn’t read that scene multiple times.

 

Maddox:
*chuckles* Yeah, that felt good, like finally getting able to take off a jacket that’s too small. Still, it compared with the moment when shetold me—

 

Brandi:
Easy, Sir! We don’t want to give away too much. 

 

Maddox:
Sorry. *he grins*

 

Brandi:
Well, I should probably let you get going. Katlyn should be getting home soon, and I know you two have a dateat a certain steak house.

 

Maddox:
Yeah, we do. *Maddox patted his jacket pocket* Wish me luck, Brandi!

 

Brandi:
No luck needed. You’ve got this!
