Sometimes lives change with a single post…
Kathryn is known as Cherry Blossom by her online friends. Curvaceous and fiercely loyal, the forty-something finds herself in a unique place in her life… Enter Socrates, the online Dom.
His devotion to educating people new to the world of BDSM is something Kathryn greatly admires. Although she isn’t into kink, curiosity gets the best of her and she begins to correspond with the Spanish Dom.
One simple comment leads Kathryn into the passionate world of Dominance and submission where she uncovers truths about herself, and the incredible man she’s come to know and trust.

“It’s been my honor to introduce you to the woman you were meant to be.” ~Socrates


As a HUGE fan of the Brie Series by Red Phoenix, I was extremely excited to read something new from her. I was deep in the middle of ‘Red Phoenix Withdrawal,’ and Socrates pulled me out, if only for a short time. If you are interested in the BDSM lifestyle, well, you definitely have to get this book ASAP! It’s very instructional, and yet, there is a great story behind it.

❝ Before that day, I’d never realized the sensuous feel of opposing sensations – of fire and ice, of pleasure and pain. ❞

The book starts off in such a way, that you automatically feel like Kathryn, AKA Cherry Blossom, is talking directly to you, telling her your story. You feel her anticipation and desire, her curiosity and her willingness to try new things. Cherry Blossom was a great character, well-rounded, interesting, and very relatable. Pretty much through the entire book, my emotions mirrored Kathryn’s. At times, she acted like a giddy school girl, and I found myself giggling right along with her. Excitement, trepidation, sadness, all of the emotions were there and ready for you to latch on and enjoy the ride.

As I mentioned at the beginning, Socrates Inspires Cherry to Blossom was a very good learning experience for someone who is new to the scene, or is just curious and interested in maybe learning more about the BDSM lifestyle. Even though this was only about 70 pages long, it was chock-full of juicy tidbits about the BDSM world. I found myself taking some notes of my own, and not just for writing my review.

I never doubted that Red Phoenix would disappoint at all. She always amazes me with her talent, and always gives her readers what they want and more. For those of you who would like a short, sensual, instructional read, this is definitely for you. Take the beautiful journey in to the world of Socrates. But be warned, it will be very hard to say goodbye to the ‘Online Dom.’

About Red Phoenix

Erotica is delicious fantasy meant to help stimulate both the mind and body.

I love romance and I love good sex. It is a healthy combination in real life. I write stories that touch on the ups and downs of lovers and the unique sexual experiences that make life a ton more fun. I am a happily married woman who believes (based on personal experience) that love conquers all. It is a running theme in my writing.

I started writing erotica for two reasons: I had characters milling around in my head begging to be heard AND I wanted to read stories that were not only hot but also meaningful. Being an indie author, I have the freedom to write whatever comes to mind from BDSM (Brie), paranormal (Keeper of the Wolf Clan and Varick: The Reckoning), ménage (Blissful), and contemporary (In 9 Days). I allow the characters to set the story. However, in every one of my works you will find strong but likeable female leads and heartwarming, sometimes even inspiring, love stories.

My erotica is not just about the sex, it’s about the emotion behind the delicious act.

I take my role as storyteller seriously. As much as possible, I conduct personal research so that I speak from experience. When that is not possible, I extensively research the “why, how, and what it feels like”. I want my readers to feel what the characters are experiencing. For me, it’s all about getting the motor purring so that those feelings can transfer to the bedroom.
