HAPPY RELEASE DAY!!!
by Blue Kincaid
When Drew Minola signs up for the annual submissive auction at Twisted & Tied – DC’s premier BDSM club – she’s under the impression it’s mostly for show. She doesn’t expect there to be any real competition for her and anticipates a night of slightly kinky sex with her sort-of boyfriend – which would be a vast improvement over the disaster that was her last foray into the Lifestyle. What she ends up with is an overwhelmingly intense, deliciously sexy stranger who isn’t one to take no for an answer – not that she’s saying no. She’s too busy begging – Yes, please, more! But when their night is over, can she do more than dip her toe into the BDSM world and learn to embrace the submissive within?
Shibari expert Sebastian Falk wants Drew in his arms, in his bed and in his ropes, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen – including buying her submission for the night. But he wants so much more than just one night. More than anything he wants to show her what submitting to a real Dom is like, because the one she’s with is dangerous and reckless. Bas isn’t going to let him ruin any more lives and if that means stealing Drew right out from under the son of a bitch’s nose, then so be it. Great risk for great reward – and she is the greatest prize Bas has ever claimed. She’s no wilting flower, though, and training her is going to test all of his skills as a Dom…but that's nothing compared to the trouble he's going to have when the secrets he's been keeping come back to haunt him - and Drew.
I really loved the elegance of the first book in this series, Five Days in December. I was excited when the author asked if I'd like to read Training Drew. While I didn't like it quite as much as the first one, I read through this in one sitting. That means that I did like it!
Drew is flighty. Drew is curious. Drew put herself into some really scary situations. It was a good thing that Sebastian spots her and buys her in a submissive auction. He has an ulterior motive, but basically he has her best interests at heart. Oh, and he thinks she's pretty special! That's good.
The same "bad guy" from the first book is in this one. My guess is that there are people like him out there, pretty much playing at being Doms...and people do get hurt. One could almost read this as a cautionary tale. Well, one could...but one can also read this to get a peek into the lifestyle. Definitely not for the under 18 crowd.
It was fun seeing December and Harry again. And I'm sure there will be more visits with the side characters that Ms. Kincaid has created. I look forward to seeing them in their own books.
*Thank you, Ms. Kincaid, for the opportunity to read Training Drew
