An Invitation Series book: Alayna's Training by Jennifer Cole

An Invitation: Alayna's Training  An Invitation: Alayna's Training

Alayna's Training [An Invitation 1]
Series: An Invitation; Next Book: Ariel's Pet by Qwillia Rain
Genre: BDSM Erotic Contemporary

A business card left behind by a regular in her restaurant intrigues Alayna Valerian. While visiting the Web site scrawled on the back, she finds herself submerged into the fetish world of BDSM. She learns the man who has been eating in her café for six months--and sets her libido on fire--is a Dominant, as well as co-owner of an establishment that teaches the art of mastery and submission. As her research deepens, she recognizes her submissive nature and decides the ruggedly, distinguished Logan Abram is the Dominant to show her the pleasures to be attained at the hands of the right man.

Logan Abram is a Dominant without a submissive. Five years ago, he walked away from the lifestyle to deal with a tragedy he had yet to come to terms with. Long-denied Dominant needs surge to the surface, demanding to claim the curvaceous co-owner of the eatery he frequents. Alayna Valerian’s natural submissiveness calls to his Dom on a primal level. All of his control is threatened when Alayna arrives on his doorstep seeking to explore her submissiveness.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM theme and content.

This was an awesome book! The characters fairly leapt off the page they were so real. The tension, the passion, the frustration was intense. Reading the story of Logan and Alayna was truly an emotional roller coaster ride. Laughter, tears, sorrow ... what a wonderful experience. Jennifer Cole brought Alayna so vividly to life it was amazing.  Her desire for Logan, her willingness to do what ever it took to get him to notice her was so gripping so heart breaking at times.  Seeing Logan suffer as he denied his attraction to Alayna was engrossing. I could feel his anguish and frustration. It was so hard to watch him try to deny to himself what was so obvious to everyone else.

I truly enjoyed this story and I'm off to purchase the sequel Ariel's Pet by Qwillia Rain. I also saw another book in the An Invitation Series on Jennifer Cole's website under her Works In Progress tab titled. Shendah's Seduction. I'm looking forward to that one. Shendah was a secondary character in Alayna's Training and what I gathered about her while reading this story makes me definitely want to see more.

I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves romance and happy endings as well as a touch of BDSM to spice things up.
