My fifth five-star rating of the year goes to Logan! Review posted June 3, 2014

His jaw relaxed, those fathomless eyes flickering. "All right then," he murmured. "What would you wear for me? For yourself, to make yourself feel beautiful, seductive, capable of bringing even a Master to his knees? Bringing this Master to his knees."

I'll make this short because I think the pictures and quotes speak louder than words. And yes, I'm going to gush a lot (pun intended).

Jx PinkLady Reviews ♡ bookwormthoughts

Madison uprooted her life in order to run Naughty Bits, her late sister's lingerie/adult toy shop. In order for it to succeed she needs to get in touch with her inner sexual self so she's comfortable in her role. Part two has Madison up close and personal with a submissive's training session where she becomes more entwined than she’d anticipated. The question is... will she find a way to overcome her inner fears and allow her self discovery to evolve?

The Training Session is about so much more

Let me just say that this book was awesome. It picks up right where part 1 stops. Madison decides that she is going to the training session. Logan is training Troy, for his Mistress, and asked Madison to come help him. It was very erotic and beautiful. Joey Hill's words are so eloquent and mesmerizing that you get completely immersed in what you are reading. There is also a gentleness to her words but they are yet very sensual. She is truly a magnificent wri

Oh my.... where's the fan??

A very hot installment on this series (or is it one fragmented novel?).
Madison faces some of her fears, grows as a character, and delivers some scorching hot scenes.
This is some classy, intense, all-out erotica... it should be mandatory reading for writing class, I think ;)

If this is your sub-genre of choice, give it a go!
You might want to start with The Lingerie Shop and build steam over the rest of the quartet -- Good luck!!
So if you read my review of the first instalment to this series you'll already know that I'm not a huge fan of the serialised novel format. It's something that we're seeing more and more frequently and I'll say right now that it isn't a trend I'm happy with. I much prefer to be able to read the whole story in one go and that way I'm more likely to enjoy the experience. So I decided to wait until all 4 parts of the Naughty Bits series were available and give it another chance. After rereading The ...more

Well, did it just get really hot in here or what... And sweet... And emotional... In that order. Part II left me wishing I had magic powers so I could cast a spell to make Logan real to have for myself.

Now, I could use this whole review space to say for the hundredth time how much I love reading Joey W. Hill's stories, and talk about all the warm, fuzzy feelings I get while reading them, but right now I'm short on time. Plus, unless I'm mistaken, I've done that in all of my reviews of Ms. Hill's

I always feel like a bit of a voyeur when reading something written by Joey W. Hill. Her writing makes me feel like I am in the moment with the characters and some of those moments can be intense indeed. In this installment of Naughty Bits Part II: The Training Session Madison is continuing to grieve for her sister and has taken her decision to explore her sensuality and submission with Logan to the next level. Trust is still an issue for her but Logan is helping her overcome that in a most deli ...more

There is such a poetic beauty to Joey W. Hill's writing.  This novella is part two out of four in this series.

For Madison she is diving into a world she knows she belongs in , but is terrified to what it all means.  To help Madison with her deepest desires Logan coaxes her into one of his training sessions to bring her out of her shell.

Wow. After I finished reading Part 1, I knew when Logan and Madison’s first real scene together was going to be amazing, but THE TRAINING SESSION blew me away. I think it helped Madison to have Troy there as a buffer while she got used to seeing Logan in his true element as a confident and unforgiving Dominant. The first quarter of Part 2 is this training session where Troy learns how to contr

I really enjoyed this installment of Naughty Bits.

The way the story is evolving is very intriguing. With Logan’s guidance, Madison is able to begin embracing her kinky sensual side. The benefit of this is that she is also able to finally identify with her customers and their needs, which helps her feel as though she is more successful in carrying on her sister’s legacy.

This is a direct continuation from the earlier book. I like that there's a short intro where you get a snippet of what happened in the previous book and then you just start off with the new "episode".

After the session where she "assisted" Logan in training Troy, Madison is now more aware of her submissive traits and definitely more aware of the irresistible attraction between her and the charismatic Dom. She's still very much wary of letting go of herself fully and living out her fantasies but

This second book picks up where we left Madison; A training session Troy with Master Logan.
Madison is timid at first but is starting to come into her own. She is finally ready to explore her submissive side. I loved reading the changes in Madison. Especially her playfulness.
Logan is biding his time with Madison by being cautious and gentle. He’s helping her overcome her internal struggles and he

Not enough words to explain the next novella by Joey W. Hill. Naughty Bits Part II: The Training Session is AMAZING. It fulfills the desire of ones beginning, into becoming a submissive. The training is exciting, seductive, overwhelming, and leaves you completed. This novella also leaves you wanting MORE! A perfect ending, for the next novella.

A continuation in the Naughty Bits series, and it still isn't a complete story. This one only includes rising action, and it takes place directly after the events in the previous book. Not my cup of tea, despite some good parts.

“The training session” starts off almost Immediately where the lingerie shop ends and given these novels aren’t told in chapters rather just a chunk of story focused on one element makes it a fast and easy read.

This series is beginning to remind me a little of a overdrawn out franchise to be completely honest, while it’s a good story, holds attention and might even feed a dirty one track mind the first few novels are good then slowly begin to lose allure but it’s good enough to want to get to t

Logan; purely Dominant, all male, virile, sexy as hell. Madison; skittish, cynical, guilt-ridden, fabulous fantasy life. They are brought together by her sister's death. The training scene with Troy and movie date are the ultimate in sensual erotica. Scenes so vividly depicted, you experience them with the characters. Logan is ever so slowly breaking down her defenses which allows her to truly embrace her submission. ...more

Madison has inherited her sister’s erotica shop and the DOM next door. Logan and Madison have an instant attraction to one another but she is hesitant to explore BDSM world which she has denied herself. When Logan asks her to observe a submissive training session Madison agrees to watch him while he is training Troy a male submissive. Madison is not prepared for the way Logan pulls her into the session.

So, there is this quote early in Part II, and it is the essence of any of Joey Hill’s stories, even though in this case, it is a reflection of Logan slowly but firmly dipping the toes of a not wholly unaware Madison into a place of trust, under the guise of having her “assist” with a sub training session:

A serialisation by one of the foremost writers in erotic fiction and not to be missed. This is the second instalment in The Naughty Bits series and things are definitely hotting up! Whilst quite short by nature it's not just a quick easily forgotten read and this novella will suck you in and make you hungry for more.

Originally reviewed for Tea and Book.

For the most part, I like Joey Hill. She has a sensual style that could send just about anyone unto a swoon. Erotica at its best.

That being said, I found this book to be missing something. Not because it lacks Ms Hill' s usual style but because it's disjointed. I didn't read Part I and that may have been a part if the problem. There will be a total of four parts. I wasn't paying attention and it seems this is more of a serial then a series and therein lay the

As a huge fan of Joey Hill, I was thrilled to try an new series by this talented author. This series is much lighter than her Nature of Desire series, and is a great gateway to BDSM and Joey Hill as an author. Hill's books are always really well written and she brings her characters to life, so that the reader is witnessing the story. This remains true with the Naughty Bits series, about Madison who has inherited a linge

what do you do when your dreams have a chance of becoming a reality?? when you finally can tell your most secret, never been told fantasy and feel like you are accepted and hot laughed at or ridiculed ??
how may can say that they found someone who understands them ???

I thinks this book is the perfect description in what it takes to be honest to yourself and to allow yourself to be your true self .... and of course there is just enough steamy sexy play that keeps you glued to the pages/screen :)

I received a copy of Naughty Bits II from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. Not sure what I was thinking when I requested it. I do not like serials and I really wouldn't want to start with part 2. That said, I really was surprised about how much I liked NB2. It essentially stands on it's own. I have read individual stories which have given me less than this serial installment did.

This is the second part of a four part serial. Whereas the first part introduces the reader to the characters and sets up the plot, the second part lets us get to the know the characters more, shows some experimentation by and growth for Madison, and amps up the action. I'd say this part is really split into two sections - a session with Logan and Troy and a date with Logan.

This part pretty much delves right into the session with Logan and Troy. Madison ends up participating a lot more than she

I have been not quite so patiently waiting for this one. I fell in love with Madison and Logan in Part I (the Lingerie Shop), and this was just what I wanted from the second installment. Logan is training a sub for another Dom and asked Madison to help out. She hesitantly agrees. Hesitantly because this submission stuff is all new to her and she's not sure what will be expected of her. While the book starts off with a steamy training session, it only gets hotter as the pages turn.
