THE 30 DAY SUB is an emotional story about finding love in an impossible situation and deciding whether to follow the rules or follow your heart.
Torrance has a reputation as an amazing trainer of new subs. While he is happy to use his skills to help out, he has decided he would like something more permanent. He finds himself in a difficult situation when a friend asks him to take a new sub, Cate, under his wings for 30 days to train her for her new Dom. Torrance is immediately drawn to Cate on an emotional level he's never experienced before. He tries to keep his distance because he knows at the end of the 30 days he has to give Cate up to her new master. However, when her master starts sending lists of training demands that Torrance finds ridiculous, he has a hard time keeping his emotions in check.
While Cate is drawn to Torrance, she is determined to not mess up in her new role as a sub and she is committed to making her new master happy. When her new master arrives to get her at the end of her training, she is torn between staying with the man she has fallen for or going with the man she was promised to.
This story was great. The emotional struggles of both characters trying to decide how they truly feel, how the other feels, and what rules they should follow kept me captivated. Of course I was rooting for Torrance and Cate's happily ever after, but I could see why it was important to both of them to stick to the original plan of Cate just being Torrance's trainee for 30 days.
The author did a great job of working in delicate emotional issues like domestic violence and body image issues. All of these things factored into and had an impact on this relationship.
This story was fun, steamy, and at times very emotional. I enjoyed it very much.
