REVIEW - SUBMIT by Raven Jayne

This first portion is from my review of Obey - Lesson One and gives a little background...., but it is highly suggested that you read this series in order.  They are not stand-alone books and are all about Juliette and her lessons to become the perfect wife.

Juliette comes from a long line of the elite rich.  Rich beyond any imagination.  And in this world, there are secrets and marriages are alliances.  

Juliette has been promised in marriage for as long as she can remember even though she's never seen his face or even know his name.  Her whole life she has been schooled to be his perfect wife. 

Her father calls her to him and tells her that her husband sent her a gift.  Although he isn't her husband yet.  She has just turned twenty-one and is impatient to finally meet her soon-to-be husband and plan her wedding.

But the gift has conditions.  She is to be sent for erotic training.  When she arrives the next day at the appointed address there is no one in the conference room.  Just a silver tray with a note telling her to remove her panties, put them on the tray, lean with her elbows on either side of the tray with the note between her teeth.

But she got tired of waiting and after thirty minutes got out of position and started to investigate the room.  Which is how he found her.  Her instructor.  Who demanded she calls him Master.  Who told her she failed the test in obedience. 

Master is a gorgeous man with dark hair and striking green eyes whose presence takes over the room.  She finds out that she has to pass Lesson One to get to the next lesson.  Not only does he not disclose his name, but he also gives her no information on the lessons or the name of her husband-to-be who ordered these lessons.

Lessons to become his toy.

Lesson One is on obedience.  She is sent to a famous Russian ballet studio for her first lessons.  After weeks and weeks of training under Vlad, she finally understands the purpose of these sessions with him.  It would make things a lot easier if she was told what they wanted from the beginning.

In Lesson Two, Juliette is sent to the famous painter Antoine, who again gives her no clue as to what he is looking for.  She poses and sits for hours and hours and when the final work is done although the painting is erotic in context - it is awful.  You can see the vacancy in her eyes - her wish to be elsewhere.  Which puts her on probation and she thinks that she has lost her chance of passing these lessons and will lose her husband-to-be.

In Lesson Three, her instructor is Jackson, a sexual practitioner who is going to teach her how to have sex.  She then is told that her virginity is not a gift to be saved for her husband.  That her husband does not want it, but no matter how gorgeous he is and how much he turns her on, she can't go through with having sex with him.

In Lesson Four, Juliette has a box that holds three silver boxes with dates and times engraved on them for when she can open them.  And a string of pearls.  Master will be away for the week and these are to be completed before he returns.

Box one sends her to an exclusive jeweler.  Evan is older than Master with a sprinkling of salt and pepper in his hair.  He is gorgeous in a way that only gets better with age.  

She is reminded again that everything asked of her is with Master and her husband's consent.  He takes out his jeweler's loop and examines the pearls and confirms that they are exquisite.  And then he puts those same pearls to use.  

Box number two has a GPS transponder inside and leads her into the area of town with exclusive nightclubs, strip bars, and casinos.  Her driver stops in front of The Cuffing Club a well-known sex club.  Until these lessons, she would have thought the rumors made up, but now she knows differently.

When she arrives she is given an elaborate mask with feathers and asked for a safe word and then led to a private room that is decorated in the same satin colors as her mask.  Two men immediately arrive and restrain her to the bed and leave.  And she waits....something that she has learned to do patiently.

A woman arrives with a man and introduces herself as Mistress Fiona.  Juliette cannot manage to go through with this lesson and uses her safe word.  Mistress Fiona and her slave leave immediately.  

She is distraught that she failed the test and that Master will not only be disappointed, but she will lose her chance of completing these lessons for her husband-to-be.  So she waits outside the club the next day hoping that Mistress Fiona will give her another chance.

Box three is a watch and when the alarm goes off she is directed to the Law Offices of Gavin Thoreau and led to a conference room full of men.  Gavin is a gorgeous man with auburn hair and wicked blue eyes.

When he asked for her presentation of the Q4 Analysis she starts internally freaking out.  Did she miss something in her instructions?  What briefcase is he asking about?  What analysis?

Gavin teaches her what happens when you arrive unprepared.

Each lesson in Juliette's master classes to mold her into the perfect wife for the Client gets more erotic and pushes Juliette to how far she is willing to go to please her husband-to-be.  But, Juliette is determined that she not fail.  She has never failed at anything her whole life and she won't start now.

This book is very well written, but it will push your triggers even more than the last lessons.  The authors bring you into Juliette's story and you feel her humiliation and determination to master these lessons.

We are still no closer to the identity of the Client (her husband-to-be) and her lessons are getting more sexually deviant as they go.  So if you have triggers this may not be the series for you.  Each book has you wondering the identity of her husband-to-be and what are the point of these lessons. 

Here are my reviews of the previous lessons in this series:
