Review: How to Train a Lover: A Savage Interactive by Daine St. Denis (Part of the Seduction in the Sun box set)

Meet Tessa Savage. With no fixed address, Tessa travels the world for business…and pleasure. From the Rocky Mountains to the Greek Islands, there’s no place Tessa won’t explore and very few sexual positions she won’t try.

HOW TO TRAIN A LOVER - A Savage Interactive

It’s been a year since Tessa’s rendezvous with her favorite trio of cowboys—a year of non-stop work. Now Tessa’s off to spend some much needed R&R in the Greek Isles on the luxury yacht of playboy billionaire and sexual dominant, Alander Papadakis.

However, when Alander breaks one of her golden rules, her holiday plans take a turn and she jets off—solo—to the island of Lesvos where she happens upon a mysterious young man from her past. Built like a Greek god and with the eyes of a lion, Nicolai Kinellis is hard to resist, especially when he asks Tessa to teach him everything she knows…about sex. A holiday training session with a hot young Adonis is exactly what Tessa needs but, when Nicolai treads too far over the line of another of Tessa’s rules, she must make one of the most difficult decisions of her life.

Tessa doesn’t know what to do and she needs help. Your help. Will you help her?

Welcome to Wicked Way Interactives by Daire St. Denis where you choose the ending to the story and determine Tessa’s fate in the Greek Isles.

Kristine's Thoughts:
* I received a copy of the Seduction in the Sun box set in which this book is included in exchange for an honest review.*
A word of warning for future readers...this book is about sex with lots of detailed talk about sex on almost every page. Nicolai is inexperienced with women and recruits the help of Tessa to learn how to be with a woman. Although a little far fetched I found this a refreshing change from the typical virgin girl meets experienced man story that seems to be the norm for this genre.
Surprisingly I enjoyed the story and interactions between Nicolai and Tessa as they began their journey. It wasn't about jumping into bed at the first opportune time, it was about all the small things that lead up to it that make a woman feel desired from how to touch, kiss and talk. The interaction between the two characters was interesting and sometimes funny and the chemistry was undeniable.
I have to admit that the story did lose me when it got to the beach party. I won't say what happens but I felt that it completely took away from the build up of sexual chemistry between Nicolai and Tessa and ruined the flow of the book. The feeling that they genuinely wanted to help each other turned from honest and  sexy to trashy.
This book is reminiscent of the "choose your own adventure" books of my childhood in that there were three different endings that you could pick from. I have to admit that I only read the ending that I desired and was pleased with the outcome. Perhaps I will eventually read the other two endings but until then I can't speak on them.
