Beth had hoped that with her marriage to four men (the Vampire King, the Alien King with diphallia, and the Alpha werewolves), things would settle down, but boy was she wrong. Death and betrayal seemed to be at every turn they made. The only thing Beth knew for sure was to stay close to her men and trust no one. Beth had always been taught to believe in the future and hope for the best, but how can she be the wife and mother she wants to be if this sick psycho knows her every move? How can Beth trust her own judgment when twice now her best friends have turned out to be her enemies?

Two powerful Kings and two alpha shifters should be able to keep their woman safe, but instead those they had trusted with her life had betrayed them time and time again. The only thing left for them to do is to leave her home planet and start anew. Together the five of them must start all over. One step at a time. Ruling from afar, trusting only a select few, Vampire King Edward, Alien King Lucas, and Alphas Dred and Rock must prove they are more than capable of keeping her safe and satisfied.

  Training a Wife by Trinity Blacio returns us to the world of The Virgin Witch & The Vampire King.  Although this book is listed as second in the series, in actuality it is third and takes off whereWedding Bells Times Four ends so it is best to have read it prior to starting this story.  
We again see that making a successful relationship is hard work.  With the increasing demands on her men, Beth is finding it harder and harder to make her voice heard.  She has to fight not only the danger to her but the over-protective nature of her men.  While she has four men to balance, she continues to put herself last.  I thoroughly enjoyed how Ms. Blacio showed Beth to fight to be heard.  Even through her pain, Beth pushed her feelings and desires deep and her men needed to fight to regain broken trust.  I loved how willing her men were to fight Beth’s demons even if they must fight the woman herself. 
Even as she moved her story arc along,Ms. Blacio showed us that making a relationship work takes more than love, it takes communication as well.  I admired the battle the men fought on several fronts even as they struggled to maintain their relationship with Beth.  Ms. Blacio continued to flesh out these characters in such a way that even when they were screwing up you were rooting for them, at least I was. 
I am enjoying the world Ms. Blacio continues to build.  The combination of the familiar along with the strange is fascinating and I am looking forward to continuing this journey with her.
