The Art of Submission (The Art of... #1) by Ella Dominguez
This is an adult erotica novel. (Rated NC-17)
(Three and a half Yes Sir Hearts)
For the lovers of the Fifty Shades of Grey series, you are sure to like this one. Like the Crossfire series, there is a strong Fifty feel here. The one thing I do think separates this one from Fifty is the changing of POVs and the dive into the BDSM lifestyle is much stronger here.
Isa is a true submissive when we meet her. Very meek and doesn’t really stand up to herself. However, she’s not as meek as we might think which is a contradiction to the girl we first meet.
Dylan is a true dominant when we meet him. Very type A personality and all alpha male. However, when it comes to Isa, some of his barriers will fall.
Very interesting story despite its likeness to the master Fifty Shades of Grey. As you all know, that is my favorite book. So I tend to come down hard on imitators. But I will say this, as much as I like the Crossfire series, I find I like this series more. The characters aren’t one dimensional and this story is its own.
So why the rating. Let me tell you. The major flaw in this story is the two POV. While it’s always great to get in the mind of our guys, the POV were basically repeats of the other. I understand that the author was trying to give us both sides of the situation, but a lot of times, we didn’t learn anything new. And then there was the half of the conversation we would get in one POV and have to read the other to get the other half.
Still despite that, I did enjoy. And I’ll let you in on a secret. I have it on good authority that the flaws from this book will not be flaws in the second. So don’t let that stop you from reading.
Overall, really good.
My book boyfriend Dylan.
