Publisher's Summary

Prisoner Neal Landon chose the Life Sentence Diversion and Rehabilitation Program over a life sentence; now he's entering the training center to undergo painful initial obedience lessons. Will he be chosen by a fair and experienced handler, or a green sadist with powerful connections?

Stand in Neal's shoes as he's stripped naked and spread-eagled in steel restraints for a shower, collared with an electric dog training collar, and introduced to the training whip. He easily endures his basic obedience lessons with the whip and shock collar, but he could never prepare himself for what awaits him after lunch.

Uncaught killer turned student handler Logan has his sights on Neal and is determined to become Neal's permanent handler. In the meantime, he's content with brutally "submission training" Neal.

On his hands and knees in a spreader bar and humbler, Neal's bowels are forced to retain a mixture that causes extreme cramping, while a plug stretches his tender opening without mercy. His lips are closed with a surgical stapler, and Logan punishes his clamped nubs until Neal howls for mercy in abject submission.

Fortunately for Neal, one of the program's star handlers is watching and steps in when Neal is punished to the point of passing out. Martin is there to choose his next prisoner, and while Neal isn't his first choice, the handsome and sarcastic prisoner keeps catching his attention.

He soothes Neal and subjects him to a brutal test of his ability to trust and submit. Neal passes with flying colors, and begs the harsh but evenhanded Martin to choose him...but will Martin choose to take on a difficult prisoner, or leave him to fall into the hands of a dangerous sadist?

I am not exactly sure what I think?

I am having some difficulty writing this review; I am not exactly sure what I think? At 1 hr, 9 min it is hard to get much of a feel for a book.

The book is made up of extreme sadistic torture practices. The eventual goal being to “reform” the prisoner through severe pain, punishment and discipline. The prisoner is to learn to “submit” to such practices.

The goal of the author is to provide dark erotic fantasy material. I am okay with dark erotica and also fine with male/male erotica. I am aware that this novella is not meant to be romance. However, without some sort of emotional connection it was difficult for me to find the eroticism! To call this kind of severe torture BDSM does not seem correct to me. BDSM without romance or love still involves responsibility. It is a type of sexual orientation, not a torture method.

I was pleased that the main character does receive a more humane handler at the end---one who admits to sadistic intentions to cause severe hurt, but does not plan to cause harm!

The narration was well done. This book was given to me for a honest review.

Liked it and want more

This is the first time I listened to a hard BDSM story. Now I want to know what's going to happen to Neal next. Will there be other characters? I'm definitely interested in the next " chapters."

Ups and downs of the mind

Alot of the story had me wondering what was going on till I realized this was a second book. After that I put the pieaces together and started to make sense of it all and it was a decent story, hard to listen to at times, but other then that semi informative.

Very Very Dark

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review

This audio was pretty dark and pretty extreme..

Neil chooses this BDSM option over going to prison, and it's pretty harsh..and I have to admit, this was my first book of this type of punishment.

The narration was good.

Better than the first book

Pretty good, extreme but pretty good. (I figure it's supposed to be extreme.) Still could use more back story and character development. And a little romance or bro-mance wouldn't hurt. Good narration.

Interesting concept - criminal reform through BDSM

It feels wrong to say I enjoyed this audiobook. There were definitely scenes of pure sadism and torture that made me cringe, but the overriding theme was intriguing. I think I would have liked it more if it had been toned down a little, but I suppose that would have ruined the context. Ideally I would like to see Neal in the hands of an experienced handler who can reform him with a realistic mix of punishment and tenderness. I am interested to see where Neal's story goes from here.

The narration was excellent, two thumbs up for Maxx Power.

Okay read

Any additional comments?

The Training Center, day one by Eli Harder was an okay read. This is definitely a read for the open-minded. Neal is a prisoner who chooses a Life Sentence Diversion and Rehabilitation Program over prison.

Brilliant Marketing One Day at A Time $$$


🖇️<--Chain

The publisher summary is pretty detailed, so I will add a brief synopsis to it.

A man named Neal has been sentenced to a sadist, sexual "training center". This installment/book reflects Neal's 1st day at the center. It explains the intake program and what [I would call it] torture. Will he be given to an established handler or continue with the handler who is learning the ropes?

This is outside of my wheelhouse for listening pleasure. A lot, if not all of it was pretty graphic and disturbing to me. However, I know that there is an audience for this BDSM + extreme.

Maxx Power is a deep and strong vocalist. I do like his performance.

Story: 3.5 stars There isn't much of the story to be told yet, as it is just day one in the series. I would recommend waiting to see if the author/editor bundles several of these episodes to get the most for your credit/$. As it is currently, a listener must use one credit for each installment… That is brilliant marketing on the part of the author/editor.

Narration: 4 strong stars Maxx Power has a voice that I definitely want to hear more of. Fantastic!

Overall: 3.75 stars (the average of story & narration)
