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.

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.

was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
