It has taken me a couple weeks to seriously wrap my head around Brie Learns the Art of Submission. I have a couple of confessions to make before we can go on...
- I now have an author crush on Red Phoenix.
- This is the LONGEST single book I have ever read...and it was about becoming a submissive...go figure!
- I admit that I LOVE this book...Erotica was really nothing like I expected. It truly was a breath of fresh air. There was nothing dirty, or gross about this beautiful story.

Sweet Reads Review:
Red Phoenix created a beautifully romantic, erotic story with Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center . I have to be honest, this book intimidated me at first, but then I fell in love with Brie and her personality. She is a film student graduate trying to make her way into the film business. Tobacco Shop employee by day, committed student by night. One fateful day a man walks into her shop, buys a pack of cigarettes, leaves her a very large tip and a business card. "SUBMISSIVE TRAINING CENTER" That little card would change her life forever.
Upon investigating the website address on that card, she finds herself face to face with the erotic world of BDSM. Curiosity bites her and she inquires. Brie allows her desires to take over and applies. She is soon committed to learning how to become a Submissive, and a committed student she is, indeed. Over the next 400 pages, I received the most thorough education into the world of BDSM. I was introduced to obedience, bondage, anal sex, objectification, floggings, canings, oral sex and my favorite, Kinbaku (Japanese bondage) DON'T JUDGE! ;-) What I truly loved about this book was that I was learning right along with Brie. It was instructional and informative but never written out of place, or like it was a text book. I, along with Brie, found myself pushing the boundaries of comfort. I have never read an "Erotica" book before, so I related to Brie in the fact that this was a whole new experience!
The characters in this book were fabulous. She wrote every shape, color, ethnicity, size and attitude into the bodies of these characters. I loved that everyone involved didn't have six pack abs, 20 something ages and drop dead gorgeousness. It seriously made the story more believable. There really are too many people to mention, but I LOVED Sir (duh) and I really enjoyed Tono and Marquis Gray. Ms. Clark was a super bitch that wanted nothing more than to see Brie fail...ugh! Damn woman! We were also able to see how her relationships grew among her peers. While it wasn't always easy, she pushed through to them and gained two beautiful friendships.
Although this book was obviously about sexual experiences and situations, Red also wrote a romance of characters into the story and how true feelings were felt and experienced throughout this whole learning experience. The interactions between the trainers and trainees was very dynamic. One of the biggest things I loved about the way Brie learned the art was that trust was of the utmost importance; trusting herself, trusting her trainers and trusting her Doms. Having submissive "auctions", acting out fantasies, experiencing Kinbaku for the first time...all powerful scenes! Bravo Red! As graduation nears, Brie learns that she will be able to chose a Dom and present him with a collar, signifying that she will belong to him exclusively. All the feelings she has experienced with other Doms throughout her training; Sir, Tono, Faelen...who and how will she chose? I have my favorites but at the end of this story, my heart had chosen one too. LOL
