The central character, Janie, has spent her life trying to deny her submissive and masochistic urges. A chance encounter leads to an opportunity for her to explore this side of herself and she decides to take it. She auditions for the submissive training program at The Tower, a slightly mysterious gentlemen's club for dominants, and we get to live in her head throughout the whole experience.
Janie’s willingness to examine her own emotional responses to the various situations she is placed in, is what makes this book so good. I have read a number of books that describe BDSM practices but never before have I truly understood why a person would want to be hurt and humiliated sexually. The way Janie describes her feelings about it, it becomes clear that she simply is like that and that is the only true explanation there can be for this kind of need. Being submissive and masochistic is the way she is and admitting this to herself and embracing that part of herself is what this book is about. So at the heart of it, Submission At The Tower is a journey of self-exploration, and a beautifully written one at that.
Why not five stars? The book happens within a day, and it both seemed... too rushed and too long all at the same time. It seemed to me that she was rushing into the spankings and lifestyle, inviting more. Which I get. It's hot. It was enjoyable for her. Yet for a newbie? It seemed too much. And it happened over the course of a day... which means all those words are one day. One. Day. We couldn't spread it out? See more of her life? Why does she want to be so submissive? How does the Tower work exactly? I would have liked to have seen more. I do think this is an excellent beginning to a series, but I felt somewhat... bereft here.
It's beautifully written though, and it was hot, and my nitpicks were just enough to ding it a little bit. It didn't diminish my enjoyment of the story (that much), and I would definitely like to see more. :)
On the recommendation of a new acquaintance (potential budding friendship) via the wonderful world of Twitter @Gary_R_Walker, I read a book by Felicity Brandon - Submission At The Tower.
I must say, what an exquisitely written first into the rabbit hole that is the mentality of a true submissive. Janie McCluskey takes you on a first person journey through her admittance through full acceptance of her desires to be controlled and beyond.
If you want to take a trip into a lifestyle that you might not comprehend fully, I highly recommend this book as your tour guide!
18+ will always leave you wanting more.
Now, I'm not at the same level of submission need as Janie but the premise remains. In order to be a proper Master, you must first deserve to be served.
