Brie: Submissive Series – by Red Phoenix
We all crave a thrill, escape from life’s entrapment. At times there’s nothing more delicious. We are creatures of pleasure and I’m not one to deny myself… certain gratification. So I was very pleased to have found an erotica author who delves into this phenomenon with fun, respect, empathy and lust.
Submissive student Brie Bennett’s (Pride & Prejudice perhaps?) self deprecating humour, self doubt and shyness are traits that the series follows. Through each book we see a woman serious about her craft, inquisitive, honing her skills, horny… waiting for the teacher to take a bite of her apple.
- She develops a passion for sex, for pleasing, for assuming the position – practising on loads of men in all it’s dark, dark, dark. This school could break mere mortals and many fail, but motivating Brie is a love story of sacrifice and moving forward. That is why the Brie Series is best studied complete.
There is so much fun and awkwardness in the pages, a hair brush scene in a subsequent book was drawn so minutely I became Brie, felt all her fear, embarrassment, excitement and jubilation of a difficult task completed.
There are beautiful friendships formed and clever introductions to characters, that you just hope you’ll see more of. I found myself yelling at pages, ‘pick Blue Eyes, pick Blue Eyes’. But I have a particular favourite. Tono the Japanese Shibari artist. Red Phoenix’s breath really comes to the fore as one becomes suspended in nature. Gliding descriptions as intriguing and succinct as Haiku while The Master turns his Toriko (his pet name for Brie) into a living work of art. You’ll often find him either binding Brie in ropes, drawing on her or another core melting scene when he covers her entire torso in wax. “Lie still and let the sensations carry you”
I adored the friends and foes in her class, exposing rivalries and jealousies as bitchy as any ‘mean girls’ high school, or ladder climbing workplace. The teachers have their hands full at times. Their exasperation when a student is particularly naughty, rebelling the core nature of being a submissive is quite lascivious, but isn’t punishment a sweet reward.
Of course you can’t have submissive students without Dom wannabes and this school has some of the greatest thought out Masters, returning each series to bid for students and join in the action.
They aren’t gods with size 12 shoes, they are real, flawed and… well I lied, they have big cocks.
Bries fantasy journal is another highlight. Her beautifully vivid imagination just waiting to be fulfilled reads like a lust filled fairytale. Her thoroughness to detail constantly chastised by her teachers for being too thorough and descriptive. I feel a switch in the making, control, control, control of how a scene will play out. Brie has her goal in sight – to be the best, and I will continue to follow her quest. You know what they say, practice makes perfect;)
