Publisher's Summary

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...

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narration from both actors was good. My problem was will the story itself. Horrible!!

What could Tara Sue Me have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

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!!!

Which scene was your favorite?

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.

What character would you cut from The Training?

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!

Any additional comments?

I Wish I Hadn't Spent My Money On This Crap. Thank God I Didn't Use A Credit!!

I am so over this series!

Any additional comments?

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.
