The Dom Stripper Interview - Unmasked Secrets by Brenna Zinn

Unmasked Secrets is book 2 in the Iron Rods Strip Club for Women Series, but can be read as a standalone book. Hopefully you’ve already heard about Iron Rods, the best little fictional strip club for women in Texas.  If you haven’t let me fill you in. 

Iron Rods is the first book in a series about a rundown strip club for women in Austin. At the beginning of Iron Rods, you learn that the club is a bone of contention between the owner, Austinite and half-crazy old man, Lyle Truitt and his estranged New Yorker son, Bennett Truitt.  Suffering from neglect and mismanagement, the club is in bad shape, including the shoddy dancers.  Then Tatum Reynolds, a down-on-her-luck University of Texas graduate with a Master of Dance degree, takes over and begins its slow return to its former glory. 

In book one, several strippers, past and new, make an appearance. Book two, Unmasked Secrets, features a masked stripper whose stage name is The Dom. I’d like to give you an opportunity to meet The Dom, aka Mack Garner.  Mack has to keep his true identity under wraps.  When he strips, he wears a mask, dyes his hair and speaks with a Scottish accent.


Interviewer: Hello Mack, if indeed that is your real name. Congratulations on being selected as one of the strippers for the new and improved Iron Rods.

Mack: Thank ye. And Mack is my real name. My accent may be as fake as a three dollar bill, but I carry it off well enough. Dinnae ye think?

Interviewer wipes mouth from the pooling drool: Yes. Absolutely. Nothing like a good looking man with a Scottish accent.

Mack: The lasses seem to like it well enough. The more they like what they see and hear, the more they like to tip.  Ye ken?

Interviewer: Oh.  I ken, alright.  So just between us and everyone reading this blog, why the need for all the secrecy?  I mean, really.  It’s not like you’re an FBI agent or a guy under the Witness Protection Program, right?

Mack: *chuckles* I ken what you’re doin’, Lass, and it won’t work.  What I will tell ye is that I have a job where my work as a stripper would be frowned upon.  And I dinnae want to lose my job.

Interviewer: Fair enough.  Then let’s talk about how you got into stripping.  Have you done it long?

Mack: No, not at all.  I’ve never stripped before, except maybe for a few lasses I dated.  And then it was before I took them in my arms and had the kind of sex with them that curled their toes. But I’m an actor, at least I tried to be, and as such, I have a whole bag of acting tricks up my sleeve.

Interviewer: No stripper experience?  That’s surprising.  Didn’t Tatum Reynolds, the manager of Iron Rods, make you the lead stripper?

Mack: Aye. She did. I’m as stunned as you.  Clearly the woman has a keen eye.

Interviewer: *swallows hard* It wouldn’t take a keen eye to see you’re an extremely handsome man with talent.   So, um, do you have a girlfriend? Any women in your life?

Mack: No girlfriend. The only woman in my life is my boss and she about drives me crazy.  She has a stick up her backside that’s hard to get past. I wish she would lighten up a bit. Get off my back and into my bed.

Interviewer: Excuse me?  I didn’t hear that last part.

Mack: *clears throat* I said I wish she would get off my back and smile a bit. The woman never smiles.

Interviewer: Now that you’ve had a chance to meet the other strippers, what do you think of the “Men of Iron Rods”?

Mack: For the most part, they’re a fine group of fellas.  There is one though that seems to have a pretty fair-sized chip on his shoulder. Not sure what his problem is – yet. But I have a feelin’ we may bump heads if he doesna watch his step.

Interviewer: Interesting.  What’s this man’s name?

Mack:  I dinna know what his real name is.  Dinna care, really. His stage name is Angel. Thinks he’s the bloody star of the show. But we all know who that is, now don’t we?

Interviewer *nodding furiously*: Yes we do.  Speaking of stage name, what’s yours?

Mack: I’m The Dom.  Tatum has been saying that the hot thing going on these days is BDSM.  What the bloody hell is BDSM?

Interviewer: Does she mean Bondage, Domination, Sadism and Masochism?

Mack: Well, well now. I dinna ken for sure.  Is that what that means? I had no bloody idea. Verra interesting.

Interviewer: Tatum is right, you know.  BDSM is extremely popular these days.  I’m curious to find out what she has in mind.

Mack: You and me both, Lass.  You and me both.

Interviewer: That about does it for our time today.  Anything you want to say before we wrap up this interview?

Mack: Aye. My story, Unmasked Secrets, is the second book in Brenna Zinn’s Iron Rods Strip Club for Women Series. If you liked Iron Rods, book one. You’re gonna love Unmasked Secrets. But please note, Unmasked Secrets can be read as a standalone book.  Ye dinnae need to read Iron Rods to be able to easily jump in to this series.

Hannah Armstrong, the new principal of Santana High School is a complete ball buster, so Mack Garner, her drama teacher, thinks. Her cutbacks to his department’s budget will force him to scrimp on his students—something he refuses to do. The stubborn woman won't listen to reason so he's taking matters into his own hands. He devises a plan to secretly replenish the money that is surefire, as long as he’s not found out. By stripping under the stage name The Dom and using an ironclad disguise at Iron Rods, Austin’s only strip club for women, he and his hard body will have his program flush again and soon.

But Hannah Armstrong has secrets of her own. The rigid, by-the-rules school administrator harbors dark desires to surrender to the titillation of BDSM. She needs a man—a real man—who can melt her inhibitions and master her. Exploring the lifestyle is a dangerous proposition for a small town principal though. Any whiff of scandal would destroy her career. She's nearly given up on the dream until she meets a masked Dom at Iron Rods. The gorgeous male stripper so far away in Austin seems like the perfect solution. Is there a chance she can satisfy her furtive fantasies without being discovered?

Unmasked Secrets  by Brenna Zinn.  All rights reserved.

She was here for a lap dance or more with the Dom. Time to get the party started.
Mack placed both hands on her shoulders, then slowly squatted before her while letting his palms drag down the outside of her breasts as he lowered himself before her chair.
Hannah let out a moan.
A grin tempted to show itself, but he held it back. She was getting into this.
So was he.
He continued on a path down her waist, onto her thighs and stopped when he reached her skirt-covered knees. Now crouched before her, he looked at her. Face-to-face. Hers a study in heightened expectation.
When he pushed his hands back up her leg, taking the hem of the skirt with him, a sigh escaped her mouth and he nearly moaned himself. A dangerous amount of thigh now showed, and what thighs they were. Firm but soft and went on for miles. His fingers hovered so damn close to her hidden nest of curls, he could feel its welcoming wet heat. His curiosity begged to take a quick peek beneath her skirt, but he reminded himself he was a professional stripper. He was here for the customer, and right now that customer’s gaze was locked to his.
He angled himself between her bent legs, gently prying them apart to make himself room.
“So, tell me, Hannah,” he started, the pads of his thumbs roaming over her warm skin, “what’s yer pleasure tonight?”
“My pleasure?” she asked dreamily.
“Would ye like to take off yer top? Maybe yer skirt?”
Please say yes.
Once again, her eyes widened and she swallowed a gulp of air. Her fingers flew to the open collar of her shirt.
“No!” Her high-pitched tone cut through the muffled music encapsulating the small room. She shook her head and cleared her throat. “I mean,” she corrected quietly, “no thank you. I’d…I’d like to keep my clothes on.”
“Fair enough,” he said, hoping he didn’t sound as disappointed as he felt. “This is yer party. I want ye to enjoy yourself.”
Mack plucked the hand she was using to hold her blouse and flattened it on his chest.
“Is this what ye want?” He slid her palm down his abs, measuring her response. Her entire body went limp, a small exhale leaving her lips. She offered him a timid smile.
He smiled back. “I’ll take that as a yes.”
He searched her eyes while moving her warm fingers over his stomach until they found the silky top of his thong.
“Lower?” Even he heard the gravel grinding in his voice.
Hannah bit her lip. The sight of her teeth gnawing the plump flesh of her mouth was far more erotic than he’d ever imagined.
After a beat, she shook her head.
“No. Not lower. I’m not ready for that.” She paused, and gifted him with a sigh. “Yet.”
So there was still some gumption in her. 
“Then let me do a little dance for ye. Sound good?”
She nodded.
“Before I do, I want ye to let yer hair down.”
The unsolicited words flew from his mouth, his lips betraying his long-held wish. But even as the last syllable slipped out, he was glad they had. The tight bun Hannah perpetually wore had bothered him from the first moment he’d met her. 
 Her breath hitched.
“Are you commanding me to take down my hair?”
Should he command her?
The notion certainly suited the situation. He was the Dom after all. Why the hell not?
“Aye, lass,” he said, releasing his hold on her. “Now do as ye have been bidden.”
Goosebumps rose on her arms. A sly smile spread across her face. Without any argument, she reached for the offending bun and pulled the pins securing it in place. In one whoosh, the long, blonde locks tumbled from the top of her head and spilled over her shoulders, framing her face.
The stern schoolmarm instantly vanished. In her place sat a sexy siren, and Mack couldn’t deny her call.
“Does this please you, Sir?” she asked.
What the hell is she—
Realization dawned in that moment. His heart skipped and his head damn near exploded.
Holy shit and fuck me twice.
My take-no-prisoner boss is into BDSM.
The titillating discovery shook him so badly, he struggled to keep from falling back on his ass.
Mack looked around the room, checking to see if anything had changed. It must have. Somehow, someway, he’d stepped into the Twilight Zone. His boss had become the subordinate, and he… the Master.
“Sir?” She prompted. “Did that please you?”
He stopped himself from blurting out, “Are you fucking kidding me? I’m the happiest man in the whole damn state of Texas,” and then jumping up and kicking his heels together.
Never in his wildest dreams could he have imagined Hanna Armstrong, his prickly, uptight principal, having a kinky side. Who the hell could have predicted something so absolutely off the radar? And just when and how often did she let her freak flag fly?
Mack willed his body and mind to behave, waiting several heartbeats until he reined in all the childish excitement flooding his system before he continued. He was the Dom. Stuff like this was supposed to happen to him all the time. He had to be cool. Stay in character.
“Aye, it does please me, Hannah.” He cleared his throat. “Verra much.”
