Steph's Sweet Reads - Brie Learns the Art of Submission

First and foremost, due to the subject matter of this book, this review and giveaway are intended for MATURE (18 yrs. or older) audiences ONLY! Thank You! :-)
 
I'm serious....
 
Not even kidding...MATURE AUDIENCES O N L Y!!!!
 
 
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...
  1. I now have an author crush on Red Phoenix.
  2. This is the LONGEST single book I have ever read...and it was about becoming a submissive...go figure!
  3. 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.
Moving on....

Brie Learns the Art of Submission
 
Synopsis:

First published as the popular nine-part eBook serial, Brie Learns the Art of Submission is now available as a full-length novel.

Join Brianna Bennett as she is introduced to the erotic world of submission...

Brie's life changes the day Sir comes to her tiny tobacco shop. His invitation to the Submissive Training Center is about to rock this young woman's world. The renowned school is famous for its elite submissive instruction. She has no idea what will be asked of her or the boundaries that will be pushed. One thing is certain: Brie is about to learn more about herself in six weeks than she has over the previous twenty-two years.

From formal classes, hands-on practicums and weekly auctions, Brie will confront her deepest fears and desires. In the process, she will also forge lifelong friendships with fellow submissives and fall for several of the Center's skilled Doms.

As graduation day approaches things begin to unravel, forcing Brie to make an unexpected choice of Master. Which Dom will ultimately earn her devotion and capture Brie's courageous heart?

Adult Material (18+)



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

Ms. Phoenix created a page-turner of a romantic, erotic novel, in Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center   If you are interested in books on BDSM, especially ones that have a nice romantic flair to them, THIS is the book for you.

    1. Missivyanne, I have to admit, I was a little nervous to have Steph read it. Erotica isn't for everyone. I just like exploring the whole relationship. We are more than just emotional beings, we are physical as well. I write about the entire relationship. But you should know that my Brie series is about BDSM and submission. I have other work as well. My lightest and sweetest erotica is In 9 Days. A freebie so you can get your feet wet to see if it floats your boat.

  28. Ummmm, there are so many authors I enjoy. I love Celia Kyle's new Alpha-Marked series...gotta love paranormal erotica. There is something about being bound to shifters that's kind of exciting. I have read other BDSM novels like Cherise Sinclair's Masters of Shadowlands series, the 50 Shades trilogy and the Club Mephisto series by Annabel Joseph (how I actually found Red Phoenix). I just added Red's entire catalog to my TBR list and Brie's story is next for me to read.

    While Red is up there I have to say Im an avid reader and anyone of you ladies that knows me from FB groups knows this of me.. I have to say I have a list of other authors to whom I love.. When it comes to reading Im all over the place, really I am but my heart is in the erotic readings of authors who suck you in and leaving you wanting more.. I will be ever so sad when the life of Brie comes to an end but one thing remains I can and will always reread them whenever.. :D

  77. Red is fantastic! She puts such detail and emotion into her books. It's interesting to note that a lot of men, including myself, are really getting into the Brie series.

    One more thing... Red could be my Erin! (She knows what I mean!)

  85. I am liking Amelia James and Melody Anne! This looks like a tantalizing read! AND to have cookies to go along too. I could use that and make my dear husband submit if there are cookies involved.

  94. Letting Go series by S. T. Prussing

  95. Well of course, my girl Red Phoenix over there is my favorite! So she's at the top of the list. But I also like Kally Masters and Cherise Sinclair. I like and read a lot more both are the only 3 that can come to mind right now so they might be my favorite. I have read all of Red's and Kally's books so when I need a little bsdm in my life Cherise hooks me up, but Red is the person I will drop whatever I'm reading at the moment to read her newest release.

  96. I just finished Brie's First Day of Submissive Training and loved it. This is the first book by Red phoenix I've read but plan on finishing the series.
    I love Elizabeth Woodham's work, she has a style I enjoy reading.
    I also like Sable Hunter's Hell Yeah series, something about a cowboy!
    Michele Valentine's The Black Falcons always outs a smile on my face.
    And Madeline Sheehan's Undeniable and Unbeautiful were effing awesome. Nobody does badass bikers like Madeline!
