Keep reading for a HUGE GIVEAWAY and Part 3 of 5 of the exclusive, secret scene.
I met Brie close to a year ago, when I first started this blog. At that point, the blog ran a little steamier in nature, and I found a short, sexy novelette about a young lady named Brie who enrolled in a submissive training center. Every month or so, a new novelette came out. I am not a lover of serials, but this one I really enjoyed. It never left me totally hanging. Each story was another day or week at the center with it’s own storyline as part of the larger story, much like episodic TV. I wanted more, but these little books were so hot, my husband and I needed some breaks between them!
I read the first 7 in the 9 part series. I bought the next two, and honestly, they just got lost in my sea of TBR. Until I was asked to be on this blog tour, and sent the new book: all 9 novellas in one book! Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center follows a group of young ladies as they take a 6 week training class to become a trained submissive.
FYI, this is a long book, and I think I broke my vagina while reading. Even my insatiable husband asked for a break (he changed his mind quickly though).
Just saying…the sex is HOT, often, kinky, and I learned a lot too! On top of that, there really is a great story. This may be lady porn, but it’s PRIMO lady porn.
The original series order with blurbs and mini reviews are here if you would like my initial thoughts from last year. But I will start fresh here.

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?
Brie works at a tobacco store while trying to make a career with her college degree of filmmaking. While at work one day she meets “Sir” with whom she is immediately enthralled. He leaves her a card for the Submissive Training Center. As much as Brie fights the desire, her curiosity gets the better of her, and she researches and joins the center.
“Ladies, it is imperative you understand that a true submissive finds pleasure in serving the needs and desires of another. If it is more about your needs than your Dom’s, then it is just roleplaying in the bedroom”
We meet two other young ladies training to be submissives as well as various Doms throughout the book. I loved the variety of the characters throughout the book, because they were all different in their specialties, likes and dislikes, and we were exposed to so many unique aspects of the BDSM community. Each evening at the training center, the ladies take a class, then a “practicum”, where they practice what they have learned on the school’s various trainers and guest Doms. We see it all in 3rd person through Brie’s eyes.
“Do you want me to be gentle or rough?”
Again, she paused. “Whatever is your pleasure, Sir.”
The one thing I really liked about this book is it is a very happy book in general. Nobody is horribly broken, there is no terrible angst. Brie is completely sweet and lovable, and apparently everyone loves her. And boy, does this girl LOVE sex! She knows how to turn every negative to a positive and enjoy herself immensely despite who she is with. But it’s “Sir”, the school’s headmaster, that she really wants.
Becoming intimate with so many Doms is bound to confuse the young lady. Because it is clear she has a special connection to “Sir” some of the trainers resent her. But the others just want her. And “Sir” has to maintain propriety as the school’s headmaster. As part of the program, Brie gets to live out her fantasies with different bidding Doms, she gets pushed to her limits and learns new things about herself along the way, all while striving to be the best sub she could be. My only issue? Sometimes Brie got a bit too perfect, until she cooked, that is.
“You will be taking both of us at the same time,” he said smoothly, as his hand continued to leave a trail of fire on her skin.
“Yes, Sir.” She licked her lips, not quite believing what was happening. She had been whipped, spanked, and even fucked by a colossal cock, but never by two men at once.
The idea of taking Sir with Baron still deep inside her was frighteningly erotic and it made her gush with wetness. “She’s ready, Thane,” she heard Baron say beneath her.
Sir confidently replied, “I know she is. I can tell she’s hungry for it.”
My BFF is obsessed with these books. Her attitude is “why bother reading if it isn’t a totally smutty read?” If you look at Amazon and Goodreads this book has a TON of 5 star ratings. Why? Because it’s like all of a woman’s fantasies come to life. Even if you don’t like one scene, you move to the next. There is a romance in this story. Brie finds herself having to choose between 4 Doms at one point, and she falls in love with 2. Who becomes her Master after graduation? Read and find out!
- Lots of funny, snarky lines. (“I googled it, Sir”)
- Lea and Brie were completely likable.
- Mary and Ms. Clarke were characters you love to hate.
- The huge variety of the situations that were set up for the students. (In other words tons of unique, kinky sex–each scene is completely different, and they are all HOT)
- Despite the copious amounts of hot stranger sex, there was still a lot of story.
- Since this is a school and 90% of the book is about or related to the school, I learned a lot with Brie (my husband wants to thank Red as well).
- This is one long-ass book, and is currently on sale.
- You can read it all at once, but it is also easy to break into smaller bites so your vagina doesn’t almost fall off (like mine almost did).
- Though Red uses a lot of sex words that usually drive me nuts (see GNI Dirty Words 1 and GNI Dirty Words 2), there is so much sex in this book, you need to use every word you can.
- Nothing ever went too far for me or totally grossed me out, no gross “cum shots” nor did she even use the word cum (though this is the author that said “thick viscous liquid” which did make me gag.)
- We never learned the background of any of the characters, not even Brie. Does she have parents? Siblings? We really know nothing except we want to be friends with her.
- Sometimes it got a bit too “teachy”. (But I learned…ask my husband!)
- Protection was never brought up. I know condoms aren’t sexy, but it really bugged me that (unless I missed it) there was never talk of being tested, or birth control and they all had bare sex with tons of partners.
- Brie was sometimes just a bit too perfect and sweet.
- I’m not sure how Brie found herself in love so easily, with more than one man. But then again, sometimes you know (especially after sex!)

Kahn: Lasting Impressions from Sir’s POV
Playing the part of Khan, Thane ordered her to lie down on the bench seat so he could ‘examine’ her to determine if she was to his liking or not. With drawn out pleasure, he unzipped her dress and exposed Brie’s full breasts. Her nipples were hard and begged for his attention, but it was her pussy he truly hungered for.
He petted her mound lightly and watched her struggle, trying not to respond with desire. He liked that she was keeping to her character. It would make the night much easier to control.
With a wicked smile, he pulled out the velvet box from inside his jacket and held up the strand of pearls for her to see. “A test.”
Thane pressed his hand against her thigh, forcing her legs to open more. Brie’s eyes grew wide as he separated her pussy lips and placed the pearls on either side of her clit. He pulled the necklace taut. He watched her squirm as he dragged them down slowly, her clit dancing to the caress of the multiple beads. It was so beautiful that when he reached the end, he repositioned the necklace to do it again.
He glanced up when he heard Brie moan under her breath. The wanton lust in her eyes called to him. She was in need of him, but as headmaster it was imperative that he resist his student.
He lifted the pearls from her clit and admired how wet she’d made them. He twisted the necklace once and placed it over her head, laying the pearls carefully between her breasts. Truly, there was nothing more beautiful than Brie in that moment. He would remember it, a snapshot in his mind to savor in the future.
Satisfied with his little indulgence, he returned to her fantasy. “Girl, it’s time to expose the truth.” He caressed her mound before slipping his finger inside her velvety depths. Her whimper was exhilarating, but it was her slight movement inviting his fingers to explore further that nearly did him in.
“For an innocent, you are exceedingly wet,” he reprimanded.
She whispered, “You have that effect on me, Sir.”
Blood rushed to his cock as he continued to stroke her from the inside. He was immediately taken back to their first time together…Brie crying out his name as he fucked her virginal ass. It was not a memory he needed if he planned to keep control. “Khan,” he corrected forcefully.
She blushed, realizing her error. Thane knew Brie took her submissive role seriously and was confident she would not make the mistake again. He reached further in to caress her G-spot.
Brie shook her head, trying to control the fiery sensations he knew he was creating. “No, no…” she whimpered, keeping in line with her virginal character.
But Thane would have none of it. He wanted her orgasm. “Do not deny me.”
She looked up into his eyes when she came around his finger. His cock twitched in response, longing to join Brie in her release as her pussy milked his middle finger.
His body demanded entrance into her dripping paradise.
He mastered the desire before pulling his finger from her wet cunt. He brought it to his lips and licked her essence—pure ambrosia, that salt-honey taste of her. He looked Brie in the eye, denying the lust raging inside him. “Sweet as an innocent should be.”
Thane instructed her to dress, needing to separate himself from her. He tied her hands behind her back again, noting the shiver that ran through her when they touched. When the limo pulled up to the opera house, he placed the fur over her shoulders and helped Brie out of the car, commanding that Adams follow.
There was something divinely wicked having his sub bound in public amongst the unsuspecting populace. A feeling of power he found quite addicting.
He walked her to their boxed seats and ordered her to sit in the chair closest to the stage. Although they were not there to watch the performance, he was curious to see what her reaction would be. A lover of the art, he secretly hoped she would be as enamored by it as well.
He slid the fur from her shoulders, untying her wrists afterwards. “Have you been to an opera before?”
“Khan, may I be brutally honest?”
“Yes,” he answered with a smirk, curious what she would say.
“I have avoided them. I’m not into foreign singing.”
It pleased him that she was an opera virgin. “You have done yourself a grave disservice, girl. Have you heard the story of Madame Butterfly?”
“I only know it ends sadly.”
He nodded his head, pushing back the images of his father. “Indeed. Unrequited love that ends in tragedy… ”
