Now, in the enticing conclusion to Tara Sue Me's Submissive Trilogy, the submissive and her dominant explore just how long they can make the pleasure last...
It started with a hidden desire. Millionaire CEO Nathaniel West has always played by his own strict set of rules, ones he expects everyone to follow - especially the women he's dominated in his bedroom. But his newest lover is breaking down all his boundaries and rewriting his rule book.
Abby King never imagined that she would capture the heart of Nathaniel West, one of New York City’s most eligible bachelors - and its most desirable dominant. What began as a weekend arrangement of pleasure has become a passionate romance with a man who knows every inch of her body and her soul - yet remains an enigmatic lover. Though he is tender and caring, his painful past remains a wall between them.
Abby knows the only way to truly earn his trust is to submit to him fully and let go of all of her lingering inhibitions. Because to lead Nathaniel on a path to greater intimacy, she must first let him deeper into her world than anyone has ever gone before...

It was not what I expected. At this point in the book they are still questioning if they want each other. The Abby character is really pissing me of! There is the part of Abby not being able to take punishment. She knows what type of relationship this is. He knows she is going to mess up. But then he submits to her wishes every time she cries or pouts. She is guilting the man to make him do what she wants. That's not a dominant/submissive relationship. Those two might as well have a regular relationship without the kink. It just doesn't make sense to me. This story was mediocre at best.
The narration from both actors was good. My problem was will the story itself. Horrible!!
Have A Plot!! Beside two people having kinky sex with a side of degrading with a topping of them talking about the whole scene all over again for 10 HOURS!!!
I didn't have one. The only good parts of this book was when Nathaniel becomes somewhat human as he recites poetry to her & I will admit when he said you are my 1% my heart melted. Unfortunately that only lasts for one sentence then he has to open his mouth again & ruins it.
Since there's only really two characters in this book you really can't. Rewrite them make Nathaniel less of a sexed up egomaniac who likes to degrade the woman he "loves" in the name of dominance & more loving to her. It's called respect which he doesn't have for her.
Then there's Abby King who is so infuriating with her "I Disappointed You" crap. How about the "He beats you & calls it foreplay, makes for crawl on all fours, & kiss his feet" stuff at least she didn't like the crawling so she does have some standards. I was wishing thru the whole book for her to say NO this is NOT okay. I Am A Person Not A PET!
I Wish I Hadn't Spent My Money On This Crap. Thank God I Didn't Use A Credit!!
This book was narrated by Angelica Lee for the female POV and William Sharpe for the male POV. I do think whoever narrates a book can make or break the book. These narrators were very good.
The Training is a continuation of Nathaniel West training Abby King. I loved this love story.
What I loved about the story is the playfulness between both Abby King & Nathaniel West and yet he is very much an Alpha male! He is also very romantic in a domineering sort of way.
After I was so disappointed with The Dominant because I really felt it was a repeat of book one. This book made me happy. This book has an HEA and yet written so you know there will be more books. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in this series.
The Training was not an ARC I bought it. This was an audible book. I give The Training 4.5 stars.
I loved the girl narrating for Abigail, but I wish she would have done the whole story. I didn't much care for Nathan's narration. He was too monotone for much of it. Loved the book over all though.
It ends like the third book in the 50 Shades Trilogy. It just ends....That's it.I listened to the end but I have to return it. It isn't a keeper for me
No I will still read others in this genre I just have to be leery of the end of a trilogy LOL
They perform the main characters. The best part is that they are perform those characters in Book 1 and 2. That gives the reader/listener the same voice.
I would keep all characters. However I would have liked more development from the guy that he had a slight altercation with at the party. I can't think of his name right now.
Lover of books with a good plot, strong characters, lots of action, no whiners allowed, and only a small amount of well placed cheese
It's a cool concept for a book series.
The dog :) Nothing against any of charters but I loved the dog.
Dear Tara Sue Me,
Every time you think you gone too far go a few more steps
What I liked most about this book was that she wrote another. What I least liked about it was, it really didn't measure up to the first two.
Yes, I probably would she writes in a way that keeps my interest.
Not sure about that.
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
This was a good book Abby and Nathaniel found their way. I loved this series and I am sad to see it end. Nathaniel stalked Abby and I guess in a way she stalked him also he was very patient with training her sometimes almost timid because he was afraid to push her away. I am glad that this book had a happy ending.
