Review: The Training Session - Joey W. Hill

So if you read my review of the first instalment to this series you'll already know that I'm not a huge fan of the serialised novel format. It's something that we're seeing more and more frequently and I'll say right now that it isn't a trend I'm happy with. I much prefer to be able to read the whole story in one go and that way I'm more likely to enjoy the experience. So I decided to wait until all 4 parts of the Naughty Bits series were available and give it another chance. After rereading The Lingerie Shop I was able to dive straight into The Training Session and I have to say I enjoyed it much more because of that. I think I'm going to keep my reviews for each of the remaining segments fairly short so that I can dive back into the important business of reading the next part of the story!
I mentioned in my previous review that I found Madison really hard to relate to because she was so incredibly naive and sexually repressed. I had hope that she would grow and become easier to connect with as the series continued and I'm happy to say I liked her much more in The Training Session. She's starting to really come out of her shell, she isn't so embarrassed to admit that she is a woman with sexual desires and she is settling into her role as the new owner of the Naughty Bits lingerie shop. She is also more willing to give into the desire that she feels for her sister's best friend Logan and I'm happy to see how much her confidence is growing.
Logan was the main reason I wanted to carry on reading this story and he didn't disappoint me here, he is sexy as hell and I'm definitely looking forward to spending more time with him. Logan has been helping to train male submissive Troy for his mistress and when he offers Madison the chance to help him with a training session she finds it impossible to resist. Holy hell, that is one hot session and Logan really opens Madison's eyes to what it is really like to submit to a Master. Troy isn't the only one in training and Madison certainly learns a lot over the course of this story. She also starts to understand that although the Dom is the one who is in control it's actually the submissive who is completely in control and she is finally able to admit to herself that having submissive tendencies isn't a bad thing, especially not when you're with the right Dom. I think I fell more than a little in love with Logan in this instalment of the series and I can't wait to dive into Bound to Please to see more of the fantastic chemistry between him and Madison.
