Violet Ryan loves the delicious food she gets to eat on the reality shows she produces for The Food Channel. What she hates is her expanding waistline. Determined to drop the pounds, Violet hatches a plan to kick start a fitness regimen. But when her determination isn’t enough to get her through even one intense group class without breaking down into tears, she knows she needs a new approach and possibly a new trainer—one with a lighter touch.
Grant Gibson has always managed to mix business with pleasure, but now this trainer by day, and Dominant by night, is bored. Bored and lonely. Even though he owns one of L.A.’s hottest private gyms, his personal life is sorely lacking. After his last submissive tried to kidnap his dog and the contents of his bank account, he’s in no hurry to take a new lover under his wing. Not until the voluptuous Violet falls into his lap.
She may be wary of his unorthodox approach of using sexual gratification as a reward, but even before her initial weigh-in Violet can’t seem to stay away from the sexy fitness god. She may have to let Grant show her there’s more than one way to get in shape…
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating perspectives, clearly defined.
I don’t actively seek out BDSM, too many times I run into YKINMK and end up DNFing – but I really enjoy Rebekah Weatherspoon’s writing style so I grabbed the Fit Trilogy after she mentioned it on Twitter.
At less than 2 hours, this novella is a quick, sexy & slightly kinky easy read. I felt the “setting the stage” for Grant & Violet to merge his personal fitness & submissive training was a little awkward, but once it was established, I enjoyed this one. I especially loved the banter between Grant & Vi. While Vi seeks out Grant to lose weight and get healthy, it was obvious that no one was focusing negatively on weight/size. There’s a hiccup in the relationship that gets resolved fairly quickly. Ending feels more HFN than HEA, but I’m hoping we’ll get to see more Grant & Vi in Armando’s book, Tamed.
