Opening Sentence: His mouth pressed against mine, his tongue squeezing between my lips. The Review: Victoria is 16 year girl caught with the stable boy in Regency era England. Her father decides to send her to a finishing school in Vienna. I am not sure if he meant to send her to that school, but she ends up in Venus finishing school for girls. Almost immediately it becomes clear what they are learning at this school. Victoria is taught the art of pleasing herself, performing fellatio, and basically almost every act of sex you can think of. She takes to these lessons eagerly. Often using her newfound knowledge on the other girls attending the school, and sometimes on the young men kept on hand. After a year or so passes she returns home one summer to find that her father is in dire straits and ultimately kills himself and she tries desperately to save what she can of the estate. Let me start off with the good, if you like erotic sex books than this book is for you. It has something literally for everyone, lesbian, gay, straight, and bi. I mean that seriously. The writing is excellent and the book is vivid. For this being the first erotic novel by the author I felt she did a pretty great job. However, I had some issues; this book isn’t particularly for the faint of heart. The first thing that bothered me was Victoria’s age, of course taking the timeframe into consideration, I know that I am looking at that with a modern eye. She and other teenagers are in graphic sexual situations the entire book. There are depictions of incest, rape and numerous other disturbing incidents within the book. I know I said it was a good book, and it is a good erotic novel, given the context of the book my feelings are probably just my feelings. I was conflicted about the book, on one hand I enjoyed it, and on the other hand those incidents and her age disturbed me quite a bit. You may feel that I didn’t properly address the story except there really isn’t much of a story. It is very much an erotic novel. The plot really is about a young girl’s sexual awakening and her path to running her own establishment. Notable Scenes: “So I remained inside the stuffy house with no one to converse with or entertain me.” “Most evenings we entertained one or another of Bea’s patrons and their friends or guests.” “Natalie waved from the doorway as I began my journey to Vienna and a new life.” FTC Advisory: Sourcebooks/Xcite provided me with a copy of The Education of Victoria. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review.

    I made it to 55 pages in on my Nook. It's one sex scene after another. Victoria is 16 and has been sent to a finishing school in Venice that's really all about teaching young women how to please men. So far there is no plot. Just one sexual experience after another. It's not sexy, it's not erotic, it's just disturbing. And the language...in one scene we are subject to crack, arsehole, vulva, and clitoris. The mashup of clinical and coarse terms is not appealing to me at all. Definitely a fail. Ad I made it to 55 pages in on my Nook. It's one sex scene after another.

Yup, definitely a fail. I liked erotica, well-done erotica where there's a focus on a woman finding herself and coming out better for it in the end. This is not one of those books.

    2 meh stars! Victoria is sixteen years old, and she is sent to a private school in Venice ... in that school girls learn how to please a man, so the book is all about sex ... there is really no story going on, just pure sex after sex ... After a while it just becomes boring ...

    Full review at For Your Literary Pleasure I have many feelings about this book and not many of them positive, sorry. I was fuming only 4% into the book and it didn't improve at all. There is no plot outside of Victoria going to the finishing school and learning about sex which I don't think that constitutes a plot at all, forgive me if I'm wrong. This one dimensional story is barely interesting, its like an erotic description of the variations on sex jumping from one sexual encounter to the next. Full review at For Your Literary Pleasure I have many feelings about this book and not many of them positive, sorry. I was fuming only 4% into the book and it didn't improve at all. There is no plot outside of Victoria going to the finishing school and learning about sex which I don't think that constitutes a plot at all, forgive me if I'm wrong. This one dimensional story is barely interesting, its like an erotic description of the variations on sex jumping from one sexual encounter to the next. There is no character development, I know as much about Victoria at the end that I do at the start of the novel. The only saving grace is Meadows writes erotic scenes well and if you're just wanting some erotic bit of reading with no plot then by all means, this is your novel! However, I appreciate a little more substance and plot - after all I am wanting a story not a collection of explicit scenes. Sadly, these weren't the reasons I was fuming. While "The Education of Victoria" attempts to take a feminist stance and talks about freeing women to become independent it fails horribly. I tried to give some leeway here because Meadows sets the novel during the reign of Queen Victoria but I just can't. From the moment Victoria steps into her "supposedly liberal" finishing school everything is male focused. What she and the girls are taught is for the benefit of men. I don't want to read a book about the narrow focus on, and dominance of, men in society - I see it everyday thank you very much. Yet this novel attempts to cover the masculine focus by trying to convince readers the purpose of the sexual finishing school is to free and empower women. How can you empower women by relaying the message that all sex is for and about men? This kind of mixed message is the problem with women's sexuality in current society - there is a misguided understanding that sexual encounters are for the benefit of men and that women should aspire to be their sexual fantasy, nothing more. It shrinks women into one dimensional beings whose worth is determined by their attractiveness to males. What I have always loved about the erotic romance genre is plethora of leading ladies who own their sexuality beyond physical appearance or the approval of men. They are confident in themselves, in what they want/need and aren't afraid to get it. But in this novel there is no mention of the academic studies the girls at the finishing school undertake and everything Victoria gains or loses is through sex. Obviously this young lady is quite intelligent but the story is consumed by her ability to have and give sexual pleasure to men. This novel confuses strong, sexual and powerful women with a heavily male focused understanding of sexuality and slaps a female empowerment sticker on top. Take this stunner of a quote "...you must learn when servicing a man, his pleasure is paramount and you should not divide your energy pleasuring yourself as well as him." There is so much wrong with that sentence I can't even. It has nothing to do with female empowerment and everything to do with men - how a woman can best please a man. BAHUMBUG! Despite the time period I just can't accept this novel. I'll give the book two ratings for those of you who aren't concerned with plot... 1/5 as a novel 4/5 erotic scenes xxx Literary George Follow me on Facebook

    And that was when I became a whore. Imagine you walked up to a guy and said "What is your most ridiculous, unbelievable sexual fantasy?" It wouldn't be that farfetched for him to say, "I wish there was a school where they taught women how to pleasure men, and I was one of their lab rats." Not farfetched as a ridiculous fantasy, but as a story it's completely and utterly tragic. Yes, a book like this will have sex. But not at the expense of any plot. ANY plot.

It wouldn't be that farfetched for him to say, "I wish there was a school where they taught women how to pleasure men, and I was one of their lab rats." Not farfetched as a ridiculous fantasy, but as a story it's completely and utterly tragic. Yes, a book like this will have sex. But not at the expense of any plot. ANY plot. Victoria is caught with a farmhand touching her boob so her dad sends her to a school for ladies, but - whoops! - he's sent her to a school that will teach her to be a sexual minx. And from about two seconds in, she can't keep her hands out of her own pants - or her school mates' for that matter - and is cock hungry. You can't afford coal? Don't worry - suck a cock! Financial strains - suck a cock! If you take one lesson, it's that sucking a little cock can get you out of anything. Actual plot points (which aren't actually relevant to the plot) are skipped over. And then, then, it essentially boils down to gang rape being the tipping point. You want to talk unrealistic? This is it. I'm not going into the technicals, but having worked at Ann Summers if you came in and said that [X way in book] was how you were having sex, we'd be surprised you could even walk. God, I hate 50 Shades with an almighty passion, but the limited vocabulary was at least... clear? It was repetitive and dull, but here I honestly cringed at terms like 'love canal', the fact that every cock the author has seemingly ever seen is purple, and - the best of all - the end of a penis being like a little red onion. Waste of time. Even if you wanted to read exclusively sex scene after sex scene, it's cringe-worthy.

Let me just start by saying that this story captivated me like nothing else in a while. It was darkly erotic and certainly moving. I was revelling in all things sexual that these characters were experiencing and just overwhelmed at the episodes of instruction. But I digress, Victoria is caught by her father with her pants down fooling around with the stable hand and is sent away to what her father feels is a finishing school for young ladies. Well, he could not be further from the truth, Venus School for Young Ladies certainly helps these young ladies get ready for marriage by instructing them in the arts of cuisine, arts, music, converstation and needlepoint. But then it goes oh, so very much further and introduces Victoria to everything else a husband could desire of his new bride. Mainly pleasures of the flesh. She is taught how to fondle, caress and bring a man to completion using her hands, mouth and other orafices. She is taught the many positions of sex. The best way to learn is to get to know yourself and your other female students and much girl on girl action is seen. There are young men that are brought in as models for them to practise on. Victoria is somewhat of a novice to pleasures of the flesh as she is brought in but it does not take her long to get into the groove of things. It was really interesting to watch her come alive and discover her own sexuality as she tries many of these new positions and adventures. Headmistress Madame Thackery runs her school as a tight ship and does not hesitate to punish when the need be, usually with a paddle or whip across some bare buttocks, Of course, punishment is always followed by pleasure and the girls quickly learn this. This story was dark, it was filled with sexual acts of all shapes and sizes. There were sweet acts of loving and dark acts of control and domination. If this is the type of story that you enjoy, this book will greatly satisfy you. I found it riveting, sexually captivation without ever crossing the line. Some of the story was darker than other parts but I felt this only added to the intrigue and the mystery. Of course there are meant to be bumps along the way for Victoria as she tries to find her purpose in life. I greatly enjoyed reading about her struggles and thought the ending was fitting and well down. I loved how there were so many extra characters in the story and that it took place in a few different locals and not just at they school. The punishments, while harsh were certainly fitting to the story line and I felt only added to it. I truly did enjoy this story and would love to read more from this author, I would give this story a 4/5.

The plan, scheme, or main story of a literary or dramatic work, as a play, novel, or short story." Now, I have read a great many books in my time and there are only two books that, until now, I have not finished once I began.

Now, I have read a great many books in my time and there are only two books that, until now, I have not finished once I began. The first was Woman in Red by Eileen Goudge and the other was Consequences by Aleatha Romig. You now have the distinction of being added to that list. Why, you may ask? I refer you back to my opening statement, the definition of the word "plot" - of which your book does NOT have one! If I wanted to spend my time reading about nothing but sex, give me something that makes me want to push forward in the book; that makes me want to turn each and every page. Give me characters that I relate to and that I want to see succeed. Even Fifty Shades of Grey had a plot, despite the countless pages of sex that was within it. We wanted to see how Ana and Christian achieved being in a relationship together despite his massive faults. We wanted to see the characters grow because we knew that underneath it all, they loved each other. Your characters were just a bunch of silly young girls who had a bunch of random sex with each other (by the way, I get the whole "you need to figure out how to please yourself before you please a man" part but why throw in all the F/F sex if they're figuring out how to please a man?). You didn't give us a likable character in Victoria, who seemed nothing but a silly, air-headed aristocratic daughter who wanted things handed to her. You didn't even give us a love interest for crying out loud!! I even skipped to the end of the book, hoping against hope that there was something that would keep me reading. "Just maybe she'll have achieved something - a love interest perhaps or even finding a dark secret about the school that she and the other girls need to figure out." But, alas, I did not. Next time you write a book, give us characters we want to cheer for and give us an actual PLOT to keep us interested. Thank you. An ARC was provided by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

    I'm lacking the words for how bad this book was. I kept reading and reading hoping to find something meaningful or to grasp some intention behind the writing or to make a connection with a character... but nothing. The Education of Victoria was just a meaningless arrangement of sentences strung together to have on sex scene after the other. Right from the start I found the character of Victoria odd. Like she wasn't a real person at all. Because NOBODY would behave like that. Like she doesn't have I'm lacking the words for how bad this book was.

Like she wasn't a real person at all. Because NOBODY would behave like that. Like she doesn't have a brain at all. Maybe, just maybe, I got the impression that the author wanted to show how gradually Victoria learned to gain power over men through sex and being the best at it. But in no way did she succeed to actually get this message across. Because Victoria was only a naive, stupid and nymphomaniac young girl. I couldn't make a connection to any of the other characters either. The whole time it felt like reading a book that tried so hard to be one but wasn't really. Usually, characters have at least some traits that I can relate too. But here, there was nothing. Even the most basic aspects, like Victoria being sad about leaving her home first, didn't let me feel anything. The description of the erotic scenes were very... clinical... cold and distant. Nothing arousing to leave me breathless and wish I could be her, a feeling all good erotica should evoke. I hope I'll never have to read a novel this bad again. I'll certainly be more careful with my choices from now on.

    Review featured on www.books-n-kisses.com 3.75 Hearts Umm Wow ok… did I say wow… This was not erotica this was written porn. Good written porn but still. I am not sure there is more than 3 paragraphs written at a time that does not have some kind of sex scene. There is sex is every form and with every person. Nothing is too taboo in this book. Including the fact the main character who starts this journey at what her father thinks is a finishing school but it more of a school of sex is only 16.

First not that I would compare the writing of this book with the Sleeping Beauty series from Anne Rice but if you enjoyed the type of book that the Sleeping Beauty books are then you will enjoy this. There is a slight story wrapped around the character having sex with everything that moves. I enjoyed the story for what it was but it was a little much at some points. That being said if there is another in the series I will pick it up. Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    Although set in one of my most favorite time periods, and filled with lots of yummy hot scenes, this book was rather boring in it's main plot line. Especially after 3/4th into it. The first part makes for a very interesting "manual", if you will, on sex and all that goes with it. Of course, mixed in with perfect-reactions Victoria. (Honestly, if I read "and then we came together in perfect climax" one more time, I'm going to chuck my iphone out the window or something!)

As with most erotica stories, this one focused a lot more on the sex aspects and less on the main plot line. The overall writing style did make up for the lack in plot, thank goodness. I very much enjoyed all the instructions that the young ladies were given and perhaps if I was new to the whole sex-scene I'd be more fascinated. Conclusion: It's a fun story, set in a fun time period, but don't expect too much from it.

    well.....it could have got a lot higher rating if there was more of an emotional connection with Victoria's character. the details in the story were really good but because of the lack of emotional between any of the characters I found I was not too bothered if I finished the book or not. The last chapter had the best emotional connection. well.....it could have got a lot higher rating if there was more of an emotional connection with Victoria's character. the details in the story were really good but because of the lack of emotional between any of the characters I found I was not too bothered if I finished the book or not.
