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.
Felicity Brandon can write. The writing in this book is slick. The words don't get in the way of the ideas. I pictured every moment in Technicolor, and I was never distracted by a bobble in grammar. This book is full of smooth sentences that stroked the clit of my (not-so) inner grammar nazi.
All this slick writing paved the way for a story that is hot as f%@k. A submissive woman happens across a man with the key to unlocking her submissive self, and ends up in a living fantasy of public humiliation and submission and private affection. And submission. Any submissive will recognize her need and her compulsion to be there, as well as to stay.
As the author says, it's not a love story, but sometimes that's not what a girl needs.
This book is the best of both worlds--truly excellent writing and hot, effing hot sex and submission.
Janie is in search of herself. Finally realizing that she should shed the shame of her desires and embrace them instead, she auditions for a spot at the Tower. Her whirlwind experience over the course of approximately twenty-four hours leaves barriers broken and a new purity of conviction in regard to her desires. She learns that power is derived from surrender, and that her brave exploration provides her a new freedom she never imagined.
Felicity Brandon is a serious writer who has penned a terrific novel, clarifying that it's not important why we have the kinks we do, but how to wrest happiness and satisfaction from them instead. I highly recommend this terrific title, and I can hardly wait to read her next publication!
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.
