When Extreme Couponing Turns Sexy by Sabrina York


When Extreme Couponing Turns Sexy…

Extreme couponing is one of the hottest trends in the country right now, which you know if you shop at my grocery store. Or if you are within a 50-mile radius and can hear me snarling as I wait for the clerk to scan a sheaf of annoying little papers. Okay. I’m not terribly patient. Especially when I’m in line.

My newest release, Extreme Couponing is about a different kind of couponing altogether. When Tae discovers that his wife Bella is secretly craving domination, but is too afraid to ask him for it, he takes the proverbial bull by the horns and designs a book full of sexy coupons. One of them is for One Hour of Complete Submission.

Of course, they redeem that coupon immediately.

The result is a revival of their ho-hum sex life, in a way that completely satisfies them both.

Here’s my question for you: Have you ever given or received a sexy coupon from your partner? Have you ever given one? Oh. If so, please, give us details! Enquiring minds want to know. And some are always looking for story ideas.

An Excerpt From: Extreme Couponing

If you’re under 18, it is necessary for you to stop reading now.

“Oh Bella,” Tae purred, pausing on one coupon in particular. “You shouldn’t have.”

She frowned. “Let me see that book.”

Before he could protest, she snatched it from him and flipped through the pages. And she began to laugh. Clearly he’d printed out this booklet on his computer. “Good for one backrub. Hmm.” She flipped to the next. “Good for breakfast in bed.” Okay. There was the usual stuff. One foot rub, one blowjob, one comment-free football game…

And then she came to one that made the breath catch in her throat. It said, One hour of complete submission.

She froze. Every muscle in her body locked in place. Her heart pounded, her blood thrummed, her body liquefied.

He watched her intently, taking in every nuance of her reaction, his jaw tight, eyes glittering. His tongue snaked out to wet his lips. “I was thinking about redeeming that one now.”

She didn’t even know how to respond, so she just stared at him. They’d been married for nearly a year but he’d never once suggested anything kinky. Never once tried to push the boundaries.

Never once suggested anything even remotely risqué.

Damn it all, anyway.

Bella had never been a wimpy woman. She usually just took what she wanted from life. But in this, especially with Tae, she was tentative, cautious. Nervous.

Usually she was never nervous. But this…

This was something so personal. So intimate. So secret. She’d never had the courage to admit it to him. She’d been scared to death of how he would react if he knew the truth. If he knew what she really craved.

That he was asking for this, now, made her woozy.

She cleared her throat, lowered her lashes. “W-what did you have in mind?”

He waited until she looked at him before he spoke. “I think the coupon speaks for itself.”

“All it says is complete submission.”

“I know. Are you game?”

An unfamiliar tension rose between them. Bella nibbled her lower lip as she contemplated the sudden urge to test his resolve. Or at least the depth of it. “For all I know, you’ll have me cleaning your man cave. Scrubbing the toilets. Doing your laundry.” Their marriage had become that, somehow. An endless list of projects and chores.

“I didn’t have cleaning in mind.” He tipped up her chin. “Sexual submission, Bella. Total. Sexual. Submission. Are you game?”

She swallowed, swamped by the apprehension skirling in her gut, the lust dancing through her. It was all she could do to hold his gaze. “I don’t know.”

“Yes, you do.”

He was right. She did.

Oh yeah. She knew.

She wanted it.

  1. Love the title. Love the spin you’ve taken. Your story sounds great.
    I enjoy watching extreme coupon shows. Living in Canada tho, someone can use 100 coupons but only 1 per item. In the U.S. it seems someone can use multiple coupons for the same product, where we can’t. Which sux LOL If I buy a pk of kleenex and use a coupon, I can only use one kleenex coupon per coupon. Sad but true.

  2. I never really thought coupons were all that interesting, but I believe that you have changed my mind Sabrina! Thanks for hanging out with us today!

  3. I love the title. I’ve watched the show on TV a few times. I’m pretty sure I am incapable of being organized enough to actually do something like that though. I really just want to walk in the front door of the grocery store, get my stuff as fast as possible, and get out. Then again, my life is not nearly as ideal as a romance novel 🙂 Great post, thanks for stopping by!

  4. Thank you guys for having me! It’s always fun! Kacey, I have to admit, I’m a lot like Bella. I use coupons as bookmarks. But I do like to save money. And I gotta LOVE the idea of sexy coupons… Thanks for commenting.


  5. I love the twist on the Extreme Couponing!! Sounds like a great read!!
