Just in case you think you may have read this book before Submission was first named The Art of Submission (The Art of D/s, #1) and has been out for a while. Ella Dominguez is Rewriting this series from first person narrative into third person.
I really enjoyed reading Submission. What brought this book up to the frontline of my TBR is that I am going to be reading Domination which is coming out soon.
Submission is Dylan Young and Isabel Ibanez’s story. Isabel is a talented artist that attracted Dylan to her through her art.
This is a sexy story that is HOT. Do be aware of triggers and read the warning. There is past abuse that happened to Isabel and she gets scared with Dylan that he might want to abuse her. Yet she goes willingly if not apprehensively into a submissive relationship with Dylan. It was also good to see that this little submissive isn’t too submissive she does turn the tables on Dylan. I think it takes him off guard and keeps him interested. It’s not boring between these two.
This was not an ARC since it was on my kindle unread. I am very happy that I finally read it and I give it 4.5 stars. Now bring on Domination. Since Submission did leave on a little cliffhanger.
The rewrite of Submission still has the same basic story line of how Dylan and Isa became a couple and over come their personal and past demons. Yet this rewrite has been written from a new point of view. The original publication was written in alternating first person point of view, the rewrite is in alternating third person point of view. You may not think that a little thing as a change of point of view could change the read, but it does. The new point of view make the read seems fresh and new. This is a definite not to be missed read for anyone who likes a BDSM read and is a fan of Ella Dominguez books.
Submission an erotic contemporary romance. Not your ordinary BDSM novel, Submission is the first book in the rewrite of a trilogy Ella Dominguez wrote several years ago. The original was The Art of D/s which was told in first person point of view of both Isabel and Dylan. Submission has been reworked into a third person point of view, told very well in both characters point of view.
Isabel Ibanez is an artist. An artist with desires and these desires fuel her paintings. Isabel ‘Isa’ paints three erotic paintings which end up being bought by the wealthy businessman Dylan Young. He is immediately enraptured by the paintings.
“…As his eyes scanned the deep shades of red and black interspersed among warm neutral hues throughout the paintings. When the imagery came into full clarity, the erotic and sinful subject matter thicken the blood in his veins…”
“He gazed at them as if they were a long lost lover.”
Dylan has been fighting his incessant desire to go back to the BDSM lifestyle. He walked away several years ago after something happened that risked his reputation and the integrity of his company. Isa’s paintings bring to light is inner desires and fantasies.
“He had always hoped he would somehow find his way back to the lifestyle that had brought him such contentment.”
Once Dylan and Isa are finally forced into each other’s path, they begin a BDSM D/s relationship. Isa is new to the world and Dylan agrees to teach her all about being a submissive. Only Isa has a little Dom in her heart too.
“…the two times Isabel had thrown herself at him weren’t like that. Her behaviour wasn’t aggressive so much as it was predatory.”
The banter between Isa and Dylan goes back and forth and so well it made me believe I was listening to two friends. The way the author uses the trauma and issues of both Isa and Dylan to carry the story forward was exemplary. So many times I have seen authors try this pull, and it oftentimes comes across as whiny and or annoying. Thankfully, that isn’t the case with Submission. Submission has been created in a way that emphasises the difference in people and that even on the outside you appear broken beyond repair there is always a way to cocoon yourself like a butterfly and morph into a better, brighter version of yourself.
Though Submission ends on a high note for both Isabel and Dylan, there is an ominous feeling I was left with at the very end. Someone is coming from the past and they’re hell bent on destroying the happiness Dylan and Isabel are forming together.
This is the kind of book that readers aren’t lucky enough to find often.The characters, story and emotions are so well written that I found I had no choice but to feel everything Dylan and Isa felt. At one important point of the tale, this author nearly broke me in two. Leaving me raw and bleeding, I had to put the book down and walk away for five minutes. The emotions were just too much for me to handle. As I reader, I can count on one hand the amount of times this has happened to me. Although Submission put my emotions through it, I wouldn’t have it any other way. There are so many questions that have been asked and fewer have been answered. I remain seated at the edge of my seat, waiting with baited breath for the release of the second installment.
