Amazing book and i couldnt help but get drawn into the love that surrounds the story. Its edge of seat excitement from beginning to end and every other emotion that is possible ran through me too. Ending on such a cliff hanger was amazing and now i cant wait for the next book in the series as im desperate to find out what happens next. Eden has done it again with a full 10/10 in every way possible ❤️ xxx

HASH(0x91d92858) out of 5 stars Evocative and Provacative Read! 15 Sept. 2015
By Catherine Clontz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Girl is the very first Eden Bradley book I’ve had the pleasure of reading, and I was gifted with an ARC from Ms. Bradley herself in exchange for my very honest review. I am truly humbled by this gift, as I was not at all expecting what I received. This is not a book for the faint of heart, and it is most definitely not a book for BDSM dabblers. It is a deep entry into the very heart of the BDSM lifestyle. This is the life’s blood of the community, and it is unseen by all except those who deliberately search it out and prove their worthiness to enter into such sacred space.

It is not in any way a romance novel, even in the BDSM sense. Rather, it is a stunning and evocative entry into the depths of the mind of a consensual sexual slave. Yes, you read that right. Aimée is not just a submissive, not at all; she is a bona fide slave – she yearns to be told what to do and when to do it, craving the pleasure of servitude to her master’s every whim at the complete loss of her own free will. The Training House grants her the inner peace she desires while demanding everything her body and mind have to offer. Short in physical length, this novella nevertheless draws you in and refuses to let go when you are finished.

The only drawback to me regarding Girl is that it is not a standalone novel. It does contain a cliffhanger, which to me is an instant downgrade in stars, but still a very strong 4.5 star rating. The writing is so rich and the content is so redolent with imagery that you cannot help but be enraptured by the sheer decadence of the book.

HASH(0x90f601b0) out of 5 stars Even when Aimée and Master Damon’s relationship evolves into something resembling love, it doesn’t diminish the intensity of 14 Oct. 2015
By Jim Lyon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a novella-length segment of a series focused on a somewhat fantastical “training house” for hardcore submissives of both genders. It is told from the point of view of Aimée, a new arrival who has signed a contract for a year in order to fully experience total submission. Despite the premise being fairly overworked in BDSM erotica, Eden Bradley’s writing skills and superlative use of language make it a fresh and enjoyable read.

In no way could this book be accused of being BDSM-lite. Harsh punishments and rough sex are the norm throughout. Even when Aimée and Master Damon’s relationship evolves into something resembling love, it doesn’t diminish the intensity of their pleasure-pain play.

Readers who crave backstory should be pleased with the ample glimpses into the main characters’ pasts that are scattered throughout the story. The first person point of view provides both an intimacy and authenticity to the story as Aimée’s inner dialogue touches on her reactions to her experiences at the training house as well as her absolute need to serve. Since this is part of a series, it has a short story feel to it—the storylines introduced are left unresolved. Overall, The Training House, Book One: Girl is a well-written book with enough D/s action to satisfy all manner of BDSM readers.

HASH(0x90feec0c) out of 5 stars This is erotica in its nitty-gritty best. 16 Sept. 2015
By Gail Siuba - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a look into the mind of a submissive. Pain, humiliation and degradation are facilitators of fear and contentment and it rules her mind and body. This is erotica in its nitty-gritty best.

Girl is a submissive. She only feels complete when all choice is taken from her. She craves a master who can take control of her body and her mind. This story is a journey through her inner thoughts and cravings that took me right along with her.

Aimee' has signed a contract that will make her a personal slave and the property of the Training House for a full year. She will be known as 'Girl'. Her first day, her first look at her new Master takes her breath away; the power he extrudes as well as his stature and beauty are overwhelming.

As her training progresses, a shift occurs and the Master takes a personal interest in her, and takes her to his room as a personal slave. Girl is not sure if this change is a good sign or not. She is completely content to serve and be used by him but wonders when it will end, and how it will affect her...
As a reader I found this story more of an experience than just a narrative. It made me want to know more. I hope to find out more in Book Two: Boy.

HASH(0x91508b84) out of 5 stars Yes, please! More! 17 Sept. 2015
By Reading Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let me preface my review by stating that as an avid reader/reviewer of many genres, I have read a LOT of BDSM themed novels and novellas. Most of the time I find myself either amused or disappointed at the lack of understanding of the lifestyle. Humor is great, don't get me wrong. But let's be frank -- one doesn't generally read erotica for it's amusement factor. As readers, we want to be thrilled... titillated... offered a glimpse into a world which may not be reflective of our own... given the chance to take a walk on the wild side and live vicariously through characters. Ms. Bradley certainly achieved those goals with "GIRL." Written in first-person view from the eyes of a female slave, we are taken along a dark and deliciously twisted path as she adjusts to life in the training house with her new Master and begins to come to terms with her own needs and desires. Her Master seems to be equally enthralled with his new slave. She quickly becomes one of his favorites. Aimee -- correction: GIRL -- has finally found her place, and the desires of her heart (and body). Or has she? The end of this story is a bit of a cliffhanger, and we are provided a glimpse into the next "Training House" book, "BOY" which piques further curiosity. I for one, cannot wait to read it!

HASH(0x9226896c) out of 5 stars A Mesmerizing New Series From Eden Bradley 5 Dec. 2015
By IslandDeb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Eden Bradley has outdone herself with Girl: The Training House (Book 1). Admittedly, I am one of Ms. Bradley’s biggest fans. I have yet to be disappointed by one of her books, and I don’t expect I ever will be. Not only does she create stunningly interesting and complex characters, she lures us into their minds. We experience life through their eyes, we feel their emotions, and we become lost in their world. Ms. Bradley also has a knack for painting each one of her novels with the aura of the city in which it takes place. Whether it’s the moody setting of rainy Seattle, the mixed modern and Victorian aspects of San Francisco, or the sultry magic of New Orleans, each city has a particular ambience that is a vital part of each Eden Bradley novel. And it is another reason I immediately fall into her books and savor each page. But this book...Oh, this book! I didn’t like Girl. I loved it! Loved!

Girl is a surprising and delicious departure from Ms. Bradley’s usual BDSM romance novels. She deliberately and unapologetically pushes boundaries. It is shocking in its intensity, its truth, its darkness, and in its beauty. It is most definitely not the type of story everyone will appreciate or even understand. Girl is a journey into the life and mind of Aimée, a young woman whose need to relinquish herself completely, in all ways to one Master, is as essential as breathing. Aimée is not a submissive, content to include BDSM into her life. Aimée is a slave who finds bliss in the rules, restrictions, and inflexibility of service. And the Training House has what she has needed all her life.

"I try to let my mind empty, but the only time it’s not spinning in some mad mind f*** is when I am in service. When I’m being beaten or restrained. That’s when I can let my ego go, when I become nothing to the point where my silly little worries or endless loops from my childhood stop whirling through my brain and I can just be."

Girl is a mesmerizing story I couldn’t put down. I understand and relate to the need for discipline and structure. Most people with OCD personalities require it. It is why many of us find comfort and relief in a BDSM lifestyle. Even though Aimée’s needs go well beyond mine, I nevertheless understand and loved her. She is not confused, misguided, or easily influenced. She knows herself implicitly. She is exactly where she wants to be.

"I know this about the Training House—about all such formal places—that we are afforded few luxuries, and I had mine with my first meal. No, here the luxuries are in being beautifully bound, harshly punished, having no sense of self or time or meaning beyond what the Masters want us to be. Slave. Girl. Without identity. With no need for it. Yes, to sink into that. To drown in it. Bring it on."

What Aimée doesn’t expect is the immediate and all-consuming desire for the Master of the house. It is unlike any feeling she has had with previous Masters or Mistresses. It is at once disturbing and exciting. She is even more conflicted when she encounters a fellow slave who is addressed by name, Christopher, rather than merely Boy as are all other males in the house. Could it be possible to have such strong feelings for Christopher when she knows nothing about him? Ms. Bradley is making us wait until the release of Boy: Training House (Book 2) to find out. Dammit! But I hear it’s to be sometime this month. Whew.
