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? 

Training Season is the first book in the Training Season series by author Leta Blake. I liked this book. It has humor, love, BDSM, and memorable characters.
I loved Matty. He is bratty, sassy, adventurous, and so much more. He is a figure skater who is trying to get on the Olympics team. He is determined that the injury that almost took him out of skating forever will not keep him off the team.  He is working on his focus and determination.
Rob is a handsome young rancher. He teaches him that being himself is okay.  Gives him strength, love, and freedom.  Rob gets those gifts in return from Matty as well.
I found the BDSM in this book just built the trust and love with the characters that much more.  There is some great humor in this story too.
I love this story and cannot wait for more from this brand-new series.
