    "I am a submissive!!!!"
    Would you listen to Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center again? Why?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center to and why?

    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.


    What about Pippa Jayne’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not gonna spoil it for anyone, you must listen and find out for yourself.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "There is a new submissive in town!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, to those who enjoy erotica. Why? I think this book has a good fictional story line as well as it being informative.


    What other book might you compare Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center to and why?

    Many might say the Fifty Shades Trilogy because of the BDSM. Personally, I think it stands alone, other than the other Brie book that takes place right after graduation, a book I hope to hear on Audible very soon.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Actually with Brie and Tono and the art of Kinbaku.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not your normal training school.


    Any additional comments?

    I think Pippa Jayne did an excellent job with the narration. I hope the next book is on audio soon.

    "Sigh...."
    What did you love best about Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Other than Brie and Sir, Ryster has to be my fave. He's just all consuming and dark. Love him!


    Which character – as performed by Pippa Jayne – was your favorite?

    Brie


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her struggle with her decision in picking a Master.


    Any additional comments?

    Seriously can't wait for the second installment on audio!

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Holy Hotness don't miss this book"

    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 was fantastic, 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.
    I have only one complaint which is, none of the Doms used a condom during any sexual encounters. I know this book is fiction but I think using a condom when have sexual encounters with numerous partners is important.
    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.

    "Absolutely Loved It !!"
    Any additional comments?

    The Story:

    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!


    The Narration:

    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.


    My Thoughts:

    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 !!

    "Even better as an audiobook!"
    If you could sum up Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center in three words, what would they be?

    Seductive, blazing, perfection


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Pippa Jayne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, but I loved her performance!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It started with a business card.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "I AM SO A SEMI SUBMISSIVE"
    What did you love best about Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center?

    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...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What does Pippa Jayne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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...
