#BookReview Training Him by Alissa Rose #erotic #MMRomance #Giveaway

Title: Training Him
Author: Alissa Rose
Genre: Adult, M/M Erotic Romance
Published: February 26, 2016


An interesting story about a straight man, Troy, whose relationship with his high school sweetheart is in the doldrums. They're no longer in high school and the travails of being adults have gotten in the way. She works late shifts at a bar and he is a legal clerk? or something like that. Their sex life is non-existent and he's become a slob.

So he decides to sign up to a gym and acquire a trainer to get back into shape. The first day at the gym he nearly bottles it but Mikah comes to his rescue and persuades him to walk in and give it a try. It turns out Mikah is a fitness trainer and Troy gets assigned to him. Over a period of time the two of them become training buddies and good friends. It turns out that Mikah is gay and when his relationship with another man deteriorates, Troy is there to prop him up and the two of them hit a gay bar together. At the end of the night Troy realises he feels something for Mikah more than just being buddies. Will Troy give into his feelings for Mikah? 

This is where the story really kicks off for me. I bought into the premise of a straight man finding a gay man attractive and falling for him. I believe there are many bisexual people out there and it's a matter of opportunity really as to whether they get to explore those options. So this wasn't a problem for me. However, I expected Troy to have a bit more reservation about jumping into the sexual relationship with another man for the first time. There didn't seem to be any internal conflict. It just kind of happened.

As I said already, this is still interesting and a quick read so something to read when you're waiting for an appointment.
