Repetitive, clumsy and juvenile. It reads like teen fan fiction. Pippa Jayne's delivery was a good effort but the material she's working with has little value as writing.
"Loved it!!!!! So sexy and hot!!!!!"
The sexy writing of the author!! It's just delicious! And to be able to listen it! Oh boy! One hot sexy listening!!! Hot hot hot!!!
All of it??? LOL Really I can't choose just one moment. The whole book is burned in my mind, one delicious scene after the other!! -Rethinking, maybe the moment I heard Marquis speaking for the first time, the narrator really rocked that character!-
The WHOLE book!!!!! Not a question about it!! <3 <3 <3 it!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes I wish I could listened it non stopped!! But it's a 17 hours and 29 min listening and the flames from the book would burn me alive in one listening!! lol The true I found it delicious to listen one scene, let it sit in my mind, replay in my mind a thousand times ;) and then proceed with listening more! Rofl Yeah you get the picture!!!!!!!!!
I find the writing of Red Phoenix an exceptional one and her books a masterpiece. Felt in love how the narrator voiced Marquis. :) :) :)
"I am a submissive!!!!"
I felt like i was with brie through the whole book. I also learned so much about myself through her eyes in the training program. The author pulled me in and the narrator made it feel like reality for me. If you are looking for a good submissive book then this is a must listen.
I have many books in my library but none have made me feel like i was learning as this one did so i can not compare to any.
She was amazing and left you feeling like each character was truly another person vs hearing some narrators that do not connect to every character.
Not gonna spoil it for anyone, you must listen and find out for yourself.
I love erotica books, many are the same so when you come across one that makes you think and feel, it is amazing. The writing and the narrator together made a great combination.
Thank you for bringing this wonderful book to audio.. Any one who loves a great kink love story , will not be disappointed.
"Oh My Goodness! I’m still reeling"
Stars: Overall: 5 Narration: 5 Story: 5
Oh My Goodness! I’m still reeling from this series of stories. Red Phoenix brings us an ordinary girl in Brie, college graduate without any real prospects in her field. She’s curious and open minded despite her naiveté, and when she comes face to face with a Dom and his beautifully pulled together and sexy Submissive as they stop in to purchase cigarettes. I loved the fact that Brie was honest enough with herself to be both intrigued and a tiny bit jealous of the confidence and sexuality that oozed from the couple, and her curiosity leading her into a world that she didn’t know anything about is one that will open many eyes.
The Submissive Training Center runs a 6 week course that will give the successful participants all the tools that they need to become a ‘good submissive’, and enable them the ability to choose a Dominant if they so choose at the end of the course. Unlike most of the BDSM stories that I have read, Phoenix doesn’t shy away from the explanations and descriptions of expectations, and the clear delineation of the trust and respect that is required. And, for the uninitiated, Brie’s attitude and openness to the various steps and scenes encountered can open whole new lines of fantasy or exploration, or even help to provide a small level of understanding about the draw of this lifestyle.
Brie makes two new friends in the course: Lea and Mary, and as the three proceed through the course, there is plenty of interaction, laugh out loud conversations and even some personal histories that help inform their characters, and show them all in a light that is far different from the simple submissive label. And Phoenix doesn’t stop with the girls: she introduces us to real people that could be anyone you meet: young, old, angry, mean, sweet, timid, attractive and not so – their one constant and connection is the lifestyle.
Narration is provided by Pippa Jayne, and she manages to use her voice and skill to great effect, adopting a certain tone and approach for Brie and a slightly different tone for the other characters. A small sibilance in her enunciation of the letter S is particularly emphasized with most of Brie’s voice which starts to dissipate over the length of these 9 stories, much as Brie’s confidence and growth increases with each book and experience. Whether planned or purely an unconscious approach to the character, it was a lovely touch that gave a vocal sense of growth, enhanced by the delivery of word and description as written.
This is, above all, a story about BDSM and in particular the growth and power that a good submissive can and does wield within the relationship. The scenes are set as both highly sexually charged and instructional moments – not only for Brie, but for the reader. And they are hot Hot HOT. Perhaps even more steam inducing because we are following Brie’s growth and learning curve in a way that is almost like being there. Curious about the lifestyle, or just wanting a read that will make you think and act – this is the title for you.
I received an AudioBook copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
"Could NOT stop listening!!!!"
If you are drawn to erotica with a BDSM twist and or the whole Dom sub idea...then automatically get this book, I mean right now! I could NOT stop listening, I mean I listened while I got ready in the morning, on my way into work, while at work....nope that was not me bopping along to music on my headphones that was me not being able to put down this book! I have NEVER read a book even close to this one before....maybe I'm sheltered but WOW, if there are more books like this I hope to find them soon!
Brianna is a struggling filmographer, she hasn't gotten her big Hollywood break yet so she works in a cigarette store to make ends meet and practices her craft on the weekends. One day a handsome man comes into the shop and she is drawn to him...but she doesn't know why. He leaves her a card with a web address for a school...a school to train submissives. She thinks it's a bunch of bull, but she looks into it...and that is when the fun begins! Through this intensive 6 week course we see Brianna grow into a "proper" sub and just bloom as she discovers who and what she really is. This book details her training which includes multiple partners, both male and female, and multiple BDSM tools are used on her and on others. This book was down right instructional, while it was entertaining.
There was no one clear love interest for the female lead, and that made it unlike any other book in this genre that I have ever read. Was there instant attraction, yes, but Brianna got to explore every side of her kinky nature with a variety of different type of people, places and things. At the end of the 6 week course she decides to pick a Master...but at the start of graduation even she doesn't know who to pick...there are so many sides to her kink and finding one man to be her everything is not an easy thing.
I adore, adore, adore this book!!! The narrator was wonderful...the hot scenes had my earphones melting, and listening to this woman grow into a better stronger version of herself was empowering to the reader. I have already downloaded book 2 which is her life after graduation...and no there is not cliffhanger....I just want to see what happens with her and the Dom that she chose.
I would buy this book at full non-member price if I had to....never have I been so engrossed in a book before. If you are interested in the kink side of life, or just like reading about it, this book could not come more highly recommended!
"I AM SO A SEMI SUBMISSIVE"
When Brie received her school outfit with the five inch f... me shoes. She couldn't walk in them. One of the trainers tells her she has to wear them all day outside the training center. Her boss and useless co-worker question why she is over dressed for cigarette shop...
There are to many to choose as each brings their own personality bringing out different responses/reactions for Brie.I really loved all of them.
She created a better visual from the smexting scenes to how Brie thoughts were. I must say Pippa didn't an excellent job with the characters voices. They were all different and able to identify.
When she fell for sir and she thought after she graduated they would be able to be together. Sir turned her down asked her not to ask him to be her M...
I had second thoughts about buying this book. I wasn't sure if this was something I wanted to read about. I am soooooo glad I took the chance and loved it... I think I have another genre to add...
"Even better as an audiobook!"
Seductive, blazing, perfection
Brie & Captain. I loved that part when I read the book, but hearing it was incredible. I seriously had tears running down my face in the grocery store.
I have not, but I loved her performance!
It started with a business card.
Brie is my all-time favorite BDSM romance. I could read it over and over again and still be effected each time by it's beautifully written words. But listening to it on audio...it was like getting to read again for the FIRST time. I felt the excitement and the emotions like I had never experienced them before, and some things that hadn't really struck anything inside me when I read it hit me completely different when it was read allowed to me. I probably looked like a crazy person laughing out loud and crying while I listened to it out in public, but I don't care! It was amazing!
"Absolutely Loved It !!"
Brie recently received her degree in filmmaking but hasn’t been able to break into the business yet. So while she spends her days working in a tiny tobacco shop she spends her free time working on films for herself. He whole world is changed when a stranger walks into the store one day and Brie feels and instant attraction. When the stranger leaves he also leaves a card inviting her to a Submissive Training Center.
Brie is intrigued and looks into the center as soon as she gets home. At first she is shocked by what she sees but gradually she starts to get curious. For a few days she flip flops on her decision to sign up with the center but ultimately decided to take the training course. WHat we get from then on is one HOT sexual scene after another!
Pippa Jayne did an awesome job with the narration. I absolutely loved the fact that she could master a voice for each and every character and never faltered. She made me forget that I was listening to a narrator and I felt like I was listening to the characters instead.
Can a book be even sexier listening to it than reading it. After listening to this one I think so. After reading this title previously and giving it a 5 “Love Tap” review I wish I could give this one higher but thats as high as our rating system goes! I already know this is one I will continue to listen too over and over again !!
I have the e-books, the paperback, and now the audio. It only made sense to have the full collection! I fell in love again with all the characters, and to hear them come to life only made it better. Brie's struggles with her decisions and going through that with her, is beautiful. In listening to this, I also remembered how much I didn't like Ms. Clark. I just can't get past her contempt, even though some of it was due to Brie's disrespect.
Other than Brie and Sir, Ryster has to be my fave. He's just all consuming and dark. Love him!
Her struggle with her decision in picking a Master.
Seriously can't wait for the second installment on audio!
I've gone back and listened to this, and the subsequent book, numerous times. I pick up on something new each times. The narrator does tremendous work with the already spectacular book. I've recommended it to many people.
