Because every story has two sides. Nathaniel West doesn’t lose control. As the playboy CEO of West Industries, he governs the boardroom during the day; as a strict dominant with exacting rules, he commands the bedroom at night. He never takes on inexperienced submissives, but when Abigail King’s application comes across his desk, he breaks his own restrictions and decides to test her limits. Abby’s combination of innocence and willingness is intoxicating, and Nathaniel is soon determined to collar her as his own. As long as she follows his orders and surrenders herself fully to him, no one will get hurt. But when Nathaniel begins falling for Abby on a deeper level, he realizes that the trust must go both ways—and he has secrets which could bring the foundations of their entire relationship crashing down...

Did I mention that I read this book in one day??! No, well now I have.  I totally loved this book; this time we're hearing from Nathanial instead of Abigail and let me tell you it puts a different spin on several of the incidents from book one.

We learn more about Nathaniel and why he is the way he is, we learn his motivation for choosing Abbie. OMGosh the struggle to accept the relationship as it was, and even the struggle with the decision to both end it and change it. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book because we certainly saw a bit more of the thinking that led to certain fights, and even why Nathaniel seemed to be so aloof in the Submissive.

Reading from his point of view fleshed out the story and gave us even more information than just from Abbie's point of view. I loved reading about him seeking help from a friend who trained him and laughed a bit when we went over those days that Abbie was there. Yeah she totally missed out on some fun times.

Seeing their relationship from his POV made me love him even more as a character and certainly allowed me to see Abbie even more clearly than I did in the first book.

I loved this book so much and can't wait until the third book comes out, I have already pre-ordered it and can't wait until it gets here.  Once again the cover is beautiful and totally matches with the first novel, looking at them lined up on the shelf I get little tingles (yeah it's the little things y'all book nerd moment
I'm excited to see what happens in the Training the third and final book in the series, will it be as good as these two?? I'm hoping so. I ghighly recommend!!
Happy Reading
