    I felt an immediate connection to Amber McCloud. She was a woman who just had her ego take quite a beating. She was ready to get her confidence back but once she meets Rio however, the fact that he is much younger than her just intensifies all of her doubts about herself. I was very impressed that she recognizes very quickly that his desire is genuine and she allows Rio to help her discover the love and passion she has searched for.




    Rio was a fun character, but I had a hard time connecting too deeply to him because I felt the story focuses more on Amber. I would have loved to have had the chance to know more about him. My feeling was that I just had a few hints of his past. I do have to say that once they get started, Rio and Amber burn up the pages. Rio shows Amber that although she enjoyed reading erotica in the past, he lives the D/s lifestyle and now she will experience all she has imagined and more.




    I have to say the way the story ended felt alright with the personalities of the characters but it was a little abrupt for me. Training Amber was a captivating book even though I didn’t read the previous title Teaching Molly. These books are not listed as a series but they are related because Amber comes to visit Molly and her husband Nick. Nick and Rio are also longtime friends. I am not sure if reading them in order would have enhanced this story. They seemed to be written as stand-alone titles.

    This story was hot, fast, and interesting!

    The BDSM world is always interesting to read about, to see how different authors portray such a world and lifestyle and if they do it justice. I don’t know much about the lifestyle, so I can’t comment on how accurate this novella is, but I have to say the world was quite fascinating. I’ve also never been a fan of novellas because they never seem to have time to flush out the characters, but then again that’s not their purpose. Their purpose is to jump right into the good stuff, and that’s exactly what it did.

    Amber is visiting her friend Molly in an attempt to get away from her nasty divorce and not-so-good life back home. She gets guilted into attending Molly’s cocktail party, and meets Rio—who throws himself at her right away. She gets swept up in Rio and the way he worships her and stumbles upon his stash of BDSM toys, and with encouragement from her friend, she dives into the lifestyle.

    Amber is a very fragile character. She has just escaped a really bad divorce from a man who wanted her to surgically change every aspect of herself just to be attractive again. She refused, and he found someone younger. Any woman who had really loved their husband would be hurt and damaged by that. Because of it, she tries to avoid social interaction and is left with very little confidence and self-esteem. After she meets Rio she still struggles with her body image, but she finds courage, strength, and a new confidence within herself. The BDSM lifestyle and the gentleness Rio shows her and turns her into a new woman, who ends up happy with herself and her life.

    From the beginning Rio is very forward, knowing that a woman like Amber is a once in a lifetime opportunity. But just like in the first book, Teaching Molly, he is almost a decade younger than her. His age is practically a non-issue because of how grown up he appears to be throughout the story. He continually denies Amber’s comments about her poor body image and tries to convince her he doesn’t see it and none of it matters. He knows what she’s been through and is very gentle and caring with her, patient at other times when all he wants is to give her all of him—BDSM style. I thought he was a great match for her, he introduced her to the BDSM lifestyle slowly and in his great care, helped her become a better woman.

    The club was absolutely fascinating! I have to say, I think it was my favorite aspect of the story. It is a privileged BDSM club where singles and couples can go to indulge in the world. The dining room had regular tables to eat, but other tables hidden in a darker area against glass walls. These glass walls allowed those patrons to see others performing for their entertainment. It was a very lustful and sexual setting, and one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading.

    Overall, this was a very enjoyable read. It definitely hits the spot if you’re looking for some straight up fun.
