5 Star Review of Hope’s First Christmas (Brie’s Submission #19) by Red Phoenix

What's not to love? It's the most magical time of the year and also happens to be my most favourite holiday. I love any story that is centred around Christmas; it’s a time for family and friends to get together and celebrate life and Hope’s First Christmas is a great example of just that.   

I was so excited when I learnt that Red Phoenix was doing this story and it was everything I had hoped for

I was so ecstatic to get this book. I love this family so much and love when we get to see the entire training center family. To see Brie and Sir celebrate Hope’s first Christmas took me back to my baby girls first Christmas and memories that will always be with me.
There were so many great things going on in this book. So much family love on this Christmas season. Sir has not celebrated Christmas in years but Rytsar and Hope may just bring C

A Christmas party at the Submissive Training Center with Sir, Brie and Rytsar....sign me up!!! I’m feeling jolly just thinking about being there with the three of them and all of their extended family and friends. This group is so special to me, and it’s so obvious in Red’s portrayal of them, how she holds each of these beloved characters so near and dear to her heart.
Thank goodness I had Kleenex on hand for the scenes with Sir and Rytsar. Oh Lord that man makes my heart skip! He is such a wond

Such a fantastic short story showing us the inside of our favorite characters.

Christmas time isn’t one of Sir’s favorite. However, Rystar, I believe is a force of nature and forces something’s into Sir’s life and house. I loved reading about Rystar’s love for the Christmas holidays. He seems to get excited about being with his family and friends! He got me excited for the upcoming holiday season! Rystar says he won’t go big with over spending on gifts but of course he does!

This series is just like coming home to family and friends. We may be "out of town" while waiting for the next book but its always a joy coming back home, "to a new story". Christmas time is magical and add a new baby to the mix along with the best of "kinky fun" makes it impossible to put the book down until the end. And you end up never wanting it to end. Lol's.

So much fun in this story, with a touch or two on some past difficult times, makes for a well-rounded, emotion-filled read. From baby

Deck the Submissive Halls

A Christmas party at the Submissive Training Center with the whole gang? Who wouldn't be excited to find out what kind of shenanigans they get up to? And believe me, they certainly get up to some Christmas-themed hijinks. In an effort to make baby Hope's first visit from Santa a memorable one, Sir and Rytsar put aside their distaste for the holiday and join a joyful Brie as she attempts to create new holiday traditions for their new little family.

Hope's First Christmas by Red Phoenix. Wow what a kinky Christmas story. I love reading about what Brie and the gang is getting into. I love the sense of family that they have all created. No one has to be alone. The family dynamic between Sir, Rystar and Brie is just so strong. It was funny that
like Brie I was missing Rystar at the Kinky Eve get together. It's like the trio has become one. I love the change in Sir, I loving seeing his growth since Hope was born and really since Brie has come

This is a upbeat novella about our much loved characters during the Christmas holidays and their first one with a little family. It is a great story for the up coming Christmas period that not only includes our favourite three but also all the friends from the training centre. The story is really about enjoying friends and family whilst sharing the gift of love (yeah there are other gifts too, some extravagant, come on we're talking Rytsar here).
Very enjoyable, the only thing that didn't r

This may be my favorite book so far in the Brie' Submission series; there was not a moment that wasn't pure magic. From the whimsical amazement Hope experienced during her first Christmas, to the playful antics and steamy erotic fun only the Submissive Training Center family could provide - Hope's First Christmas had me crying tears of laughter and joy with breaks of erotic scenes so hot I was running to the freezer for ice packs to cool me down. Hope's First Christmas is, page after page, the p ...more

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I really am a huge fan of Red and this entire Brie series. Rystar has my favorite since the beginning and I am loving the fact that he is more prominent in the storyline the last few books. I would have given this book 5 stars because there were parts that I absolutely loved but then there were some that I just couldn't connect with. The parts with Shadow and Master Anderson's cat, I just don't understand the importance of this in the book

Once again Red has out done herself!! I thought nothing would have topped the last book but I was wrong. This book has so much love and kink. It is hard to narrow down to a favorite part of the book because the whole thing is amazing.

The start of the book leaves you not wanting to put it down. There is suspense and questions that need answers. Then there are the funny jokes and pranks played that makes you know the characters not only love each other but respect each other.

This story will take you to the Training center for a crazy fun christmas party, full of mischief and naughtiness. Sir is forced by Rystar to celebrate Christmas for Hope. This child will bring pleasure and has forced Thane to come to terms with the holidays and everything it brings. All of their friends are invited to join in the festivies that will make this a fabulously entertaining story. A window in their lives and of it's normalcy.

What a wonderful Christmas book! There is much love and togetherness in this story. Red Phoenix never spares the feels in her books, and she did not spare them here.

I loved how loving Hope brought all of the people in Brie and Thanes lives together and made Christmas come alive for all of them. When Rytsar brings them the Christmas tree, I was wondering how that would go!!! I was so pleased that Sirs heart opened up to the season and He allowed His hurt to morph into good memories of

Loved every word

As with every single book in this series I couldn't wait to read the newest addition. Like every book in the series, I couldn't put it down. Like every book I got to the end feeling like I wanted more.

Red Phoenix you are the queen of literary addiction. You have fast become my fave author. With the amount of us that love Brie and Sir, not to mention the rest of the crew, I think you will need to keep adding to the series until Sir and Brie are in their footage, H

Once again we get to visit with our beloved Brie and her family and friends. I just love seeing this relationship grow and flourish. I really loved the way they all made a bet about the baby, Hope's, first word. So awesome and funny. Getting to see the trust and love of this group is just so wonderful and I love every new book. Ms. Clarke makes an appearance and I was so glad she had a moment with Brie that makes her seem more human... at least for a minute. And the Christmas gifts! The Christma ...more

What a joy it is to spend this Christmas Season with my book family.  This is a beautifully written Christmas story.  The magic of a baby's first Christmas is always a joyful occasion. Seeing Sir embrace Hope's first Christmas had my heart melting.   Of course Hope was more interested in the wrappings of the gift than the gift itself.  Which had me laughing as I remembered my own babies first Christmas. Family bonds were made stronger and there were blessings all around.  Of course there is some ...more

Really enjoyed this heart touching Holiday romance that encaptures all the emotion that you would in the Christmas season. We get more one on one with Brie and Sir then ever before plus the hot Russian next door.

We see an emotional glimpse into a past character that I, as a reader have been eager to know about and FINALLY Red delivers! Knowing that there is more to come makes me happy that we get more of these wonderful characters. I just love the dynamics and romantical ways that Red writes...

Beautiful & Heartwarming

Hope first Christmas is a beautiful sweet story it shows what a group of people who have become family will do for each other for love and how the love of a child can heal and change broken hearts. This story is about forgiveness. Sir learns and shows others that you can honor the past of good memories without letting tragedy own and consume you. A little girl named Hope has healed & brought so much joy into Brie, Sir, & her uncle's lives, and she even soften

Wow ! Not only did this story get me into the Christmas spirt but I think I love Sir and Rystar even more , if that’s even possible. Brie loves Christmas and she absolutely gets an amazing holiday. This one is really emotional and you will shed some tears because it’s so moving. I loved everything about this story.
But Christmas Morning I think is my favorite. Between the musical picture frame to the skywriting, it was amazing. I’m so happy this series continues on. The characte

Sir has never been a fan of Christmas, but both him and his partner in crime Rytsar are putting both feet forward in giving other Bri and Hope a wonderful Christmas .
Bri loves Christmas  and  she knows that for Sir it is a turbulent time. They are trying  to compromise on what will become family traditions with Hope. But when Rytsar  appears at the door with a tree all bets are off on who will win.

Surprises are in store at every turn. From first words, to Christmas  presents  c

It is not only a story of baby Hope's first Christmas but how her mother Brie experiences the magic of Christmas as her husband Thane who is not a fan of it, gives her the most beautiful Christmas surprising her with family and friends.

I LOVE Christmas stories, especially when it involves my favorite characters from this series.

So many tender holiday moments filled with healing from the past are in this story. Phoenix didn't disappoint because there are plenty of sexy, steamy moments as well.

This is probably the sweetest book in the series. Its filled with so much love and the sharing of experiences. The way the characters have grown and evolve truly comes through. There is so much camaraderie and friendship yet it still manages to remain sexy and hot. Christmas is an amazing time and made even more special when experienced with a baby for the first time. Red Phoenix is truly a genius with the pen.

What a wonderful holiday treat! Hope’s First Christmas is a delightful story that revolves around the Submissive Training Center gangs Christmas festivities. Of corse it can’t just be a sweet Christmas story. On no, that won’t do for this crowd. It does have sweet swoon worthy parts but there are also extremely hot sexy parts that will have you begging for more! Can’t wait to see what the future has in store for this group of friends!!

WOW WOW WOW, a quickie detailing Hope's first christmas with the sub school family. I absolutely loved every moment of their christmas celebrations. I want to join the christmas party at school. Each character celebrates christmas in a different way and yet they all come together and share the silly sexy season. An easy read that brings the spirit of the season to a bah humbug Sir and his new family.
