NEW RELEASE: Training Complex by Leta Blake! Buckle Up! Matty’s Back! #mmromance #gay

mattysbackforjayssitemay2

Almost a year ago, Matty Marcus showed up in my head again looking pretty and saying, “Hey, I have a really fun idea for a novella! Wanna write it for me? It’ll be easy, fast, hilarious and you’ll have no regrets! I promise!”

Matty Marcus? He’s a little bit of a liar, guys.

The book turned out to be pretty intense and it required a lot of work. Not to mention it’s 121,000 words long! Far from a novella! More like a longish novel! But the good news is that I persevered and I’m pleased to report that Matty Marcus got his book! Yep! It’s officially released into the world!

It’s a little big thing called TRAINING COMPLEX and you can buy it now!

“Leta Blake has given us a compelling love story” Geoffrey Segebarth’s review of Training Season #mmromance #gay

“Leta Blake has given us a compelling love story that carries the reader through both rural Montana and New York City. (I had to remind myself that I was really here in St. Petersburg.) It is beautifully written and it portrays the harsh demands of top level figure skating. Another great feature of the novel was the absence of any villainous or homophobic characters. Training Season is a fairly long novel and this reader shed tears on a number of occasions. It you’re interested in a love story that enwraps you in the worlds of both Matty and Rob this is a sure bet.”

via Goodreads | Jenni Lea (Alpharetta, GA)’s review of Training Season.

 

Unquestionably talented figure skater Matty Marcus is willing to sacrifice everything for his Olympic dream, but his lack of discipline cost him the gold once before. Now the pressure’s on. He needs a coach who can keep him in line, but top coaches don’t come cheap, and Matty can’t afford to stay in the game no matter how badly he wants to win. When a lucrative house-sitting gig brings him to rural Montana, Matty does his best to maintain his training regimen. Local residents turn out to be surprisingly tolerant of his flamboyant style, especially handsome young rancher Rob Lovely, who proves to be much more than a cowboy stereotype. Just as Matty requires a firm hand to perform his best on the ice, Rob shows him how strong he can be when he relinquishes control in the bedroom. With new-found self-assurance, he drives himself harder to go straight to the top. But competition has a timetable, and to achieve his Olympic dream, Matty will have to join his new coach in New York City, leaving Rob behind. Now he must face the ultimate test. Has he truly learned how to win—on and off the ice—during his training season?

“If you read only one M/M Romance this spring, Training Season would be an excellent choice.” 5 stars | Queer Town Abbey

“If you read only one M/M Romance this spring, Training Season would be an excellent choice.

If Training Season author, Leta Blake, is predisposed to a swollen head, then I am about to add to her cranial inflation by awarding Training Season five stars. Quite simply, Blake’s complex, compelling saga of an emotionally and physically injured ice skating star seeking redemption and Olympic Gold, is a completely realized and entertaining work.”

“My perceptions were completely altered [by this book] & that’s pretty powerful.” Review: Training Season | The Book Nympho #mmromance #gay

“My perceptions were completely altered [by this book] & that’s pretty powerful.”

“Matty forced me out of my comfort zone with respect to m/m romances. He’s effeminate, dresses outrageously and wears makeup, leaving no question as to his sexual orientation. I was unsure if I could connect with him and here was the power of the story.”

 “I’m thrilled that the author created Matty and wrapped this wonderful story around him.”

“Rob and Matty were off the charts amazing” – CJ’s review of Training Season #mmromance #gay #kindle

“For a reader who is not really into BDSM I loved this book, in fact I know I will re-read this book”

“For me what makes a good romance into a great romance is the characters connection to each other. Rob and Matty’s was off the charts amazing. I felt it, it was real. And their whole relationship with the BDSM actually made sense to me for once, and did not just feel like glamorised porn.”
