    Story
    "It's Library not LIE- BERRY. Otherwise I loved it"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the bestie Felicia who - was her tell it like it is conscience.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I really did like the narrator. Due to my own issues I struggled every time I heard the mispronunciation of "library". It became irksome and a distraction to the story especially with the frequency of usage.

    "Very interesting!!!"

    I thought this book was well written and exciting from the point of a new submissive. Very interesting to see the progression...The story was good because there were little surprises along the way which made for interesting reading..

    Story
    "Absolutely Fantastic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This was a well written story. Lots of hot scenes.


    What other book might you compare The Submissive to and why?

    50 Shades of Grey. It has kind of the same structure to 50 but not too much.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The library scene. Hot!!


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

    I'll have to get back to you on that.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the way Angelica Lee narrated this story. I thought she did an amazing job at how she connected with each of the characters, especially with Nathaniel.

    Story
    "Great beginning, fell short in the end"

    Nathianel and Abby relationship is very dom/sub in the beginning of the book. I totally loved it. It was actually quite perfect. A great dom/sub plot and storyline. All the event that happen int he book until like halfway through are perfect then everything takes a slight curve and Nathianel lose some of the dom qualities I think. I get it when a dom falls in love with thier sub, but if they are truly a dom... keep that quality throughout.. I hate to see a book lose that one aspect just to fill that I am so inlove with you stigma. It is really hard to do, I understand, and not many authors can do it. This was perfect until that one scene when Nathianel total copped out.... The end kinda of came rushed after that... I just don't see why this is a trilogy. It ended well enough to me, unless the next book is about another couple, because Nathianel and Abby's story is over at the end of this book.

    A credit not a buy.
