I can’t begin to tell you kxsi excited I was to find this book at RomCon this past weekend and for the chance I had to meet Kasi and her partners. My journey in the romance genre has full of wonderful discoveries and even though it scared me at first, I’ve found I really enjoy some of the BDSM novels that are out there.
Nothing excites me more than to learn something new and watch an old opinion be firmly booted out the door. As much as I love reading I find myself a little speechless and in awe. As much as I love reading romance filled with dashing heroes sporting six pack abs and flowing hair, something has to be said for the power that comes from reading a romance straight from every day life and seeing it transform a relationship. While Becoming sage isn’t necessarily the “typical” romance, it definitely is a moving story, one that gripped me so tightly that I went willingly with Jill as she explored her new life, feeling everything right along side her.
One of the things that most impressed me with this story was that I loved the way Jill thought. Written from her point of view, I loved being able to watch how she processed everything and how slexander reasoned things out. I can only imagine how strange everything must have seemed, going from kai lifestyle to another that was very different but I wanted to cheer over the way she embraced it. It alexaneer sometimes spooky how I would think of something only to have her question it in the story.
I loved how the answers were shared – so simple and straight forward to the point where I found myself agreeing with her. By the end aldxander the story, I appreciated sage and was so grateful for being able to ride along. This is the first book by author Kasi Alexander and if I could I would want to thank her for writing this book.
Not only was it a great story, one that tugged at me constantly, but it was incredibly informative. How many times can you honestly say you’ve been privy to the inside workings of someone elses relationship? Other than my own, I know I haven’t and I loved being able to witness the dynamics of sage, sunni’s and Sir’s as they negotiated theirs.
There was nothing “glamorous” and “fluffy” about it. No swoon moment – just real emotions and reactions and it was intense at times. I think a general misconception is that BDSM is nothing more than deviant sex and abuse of power. This book shows that while the sexual nature of the lifestyle is definitely an important component, there is so much more. It’s about trust, commitment and a willingness to communicate so that not only you get what you need but so does your partner.
What made this story even more intriguing was including polyamory to it and watching three people navigate the relationship. It looked like a lot of work but judging by sage’s reactions, one that was very worth it. Being that the story involved BDSM, the author did share alot of the different play that is involved. I hadn’t known how extensive it was and I loved how she explained through sage why things were done and the significance.
I enjoyed learning how pain could be transferred into pleasure and read what beconing felt like. There was definitely a few things that raised my eye brows but again, I loved how “real” the book was. This would be a great book for those interested in the lifestyle, for those like me with a healthy curiosity because it holds a strong balance between all aspects – the psychology behind BDSM and the emotions attached alexaner it.
Masi all is said and done, I’m just really grateful that I was given a chance to read Becoming sage. It’s one of those books that makes a lasting impression, one that has had me thinking ever since I read the first page and feeling completely inadequate because I still feel like I haven’t.
I’m excited to know that this is the first in a series and I’m curious to see what aspect Kasi will explore next.
This is an amazing debut novel by the author and I encourage all those with an open mind to read Becoming sage. It’s a story that will move you and keep you up all night reading.
Jun 04, Robin DeJarnett rated it it was amazing Shelves: Even though I’d heard great things about this book, it took me a long time to pick it up and dig in. But I finally cracked the binding, and am now wondering why it took so long!
Yes, the overriding element in the book is, to use one of the author’s descriptions, the kink lifestyle. But at its core, Becoming sage is about relatio Even though I’d heard great things about this book, it took me a long time to becomming it up and dig in. But at its core, Becoming sage is about relationships.
While sage believes her role is to relinquish power to Sir Rune, her master, I was intrigued by the power she still wielded–many times without her knowledge. Power, communication, and self-discovery are the heart of the story, and I loved it. And – the ending was excellent. If you’d like a peek into the real world of BDSM, this is the book for you.
Just don’t wait as long as I did to read it! What I discovered was an engrossing book I just couldn’t put down!
I was struck by how real the characters felt and all the time I had to keep reminding myself that these were only fictional people. Knowing that the author actually lives this alternative lifestyle, I’m sure there must be some autobiographical aspects to the book, which give it such realism.
Everything is seen through Jill’s eyes and I think this helped me to really connect with her and experience everything with her on her journey to find ‘her place in the world’. What Sate found really interesting was the complexity of the relationship between Sir Rutgersunni Jessie and sage Jill particularly as it combined both polyamory and BDSM.
I accepted the idea that some people may be more suited to a polyamorous relationship rather than the traditional two-person monogamous one but having been in a happy ‘vanilla’ relationship for nearly forty years, I had a hard job accepting the power exchange aspect. However, seeing things as Jill saw them, I came to understand its appeal for certain people: I was beginning to see what attracted Ssage to the idea of belonging to someone like him Sir.
It was kind of like being a child again and having a big, strong daddy whose lap you could crawl on to, but I didn’t feel like I was giving up any part of being an adult, either. Jessie had said that being a slave didn’t entail giving up responsibility for bceoming it just meant that you could feel completely comfortable in knowing what things you were responsible for and what you could expect in return.
I also learned how important trust, commitment and honest communication were when sunni’s jealousy threatens their whole relationship. I admit to feeling uncomfortable when I read some of BDSM related scenes in the book but I did appreciate the honesty with which they were written and the way in which, through her characters, Kasi Alexander explains the significance of the different types of play and the nature of the pleasure derived.
For instance, in the wax play scene, Sir explains to sage that what he is doing is not intended to cause sunni pain but intense sensual stimulation. It was a fascinating insight into a very different world. If ,asi are new to the BDSM romantic genre as I was, then this is an excellent introduction and a book I can highly recommend.
I would like to thank Kasi Alexander for allowing me to take a peek through the keyhole. It was both an intensely emotional and enlightening experience and I look forward to reading further books in The Keyhole series. Sep 30, Lady Krishna rated it really liked it.
Kasi Alexander is definitely one of my most unique reads. It was different and it would definitely give the reader a more realistic insight to BDSM. As most of us know, Ms Kasi Alexander is involved in BDSM lifestyle and this is probably why this book became much more intriguing and interesting because as a reader I know what I’m reading has a touch of reality. I read ‘Becoming Sage’ in small doses because it was too intense. The three main characters in the story became mor ‘Becoming Sage’ by Ms.
The three main characters in the story became more real to me because of the conflicting emotions they showed and felt. The complexity of their relationship was interesting.
Becoming Sage by Kasi Alexander – FictionDB
As I read along I becomung the progress and falling and then the progress again of the relationship. At times it was hard to read, but I kept going because I wanna know how they resolve their issues. You know, I’ve got to be honest and say that I couldn’t decide whether I liked the characters or not. I guess, one could say that I have mixed emotions about them.
Sage or Jill, is sometimes hard to like and that makes her more believable because the author didn’t make her the perfect heroine. She has these very normal imperfections and her doubts and bitter feelings.
Reading what she goes through as a third in the relationship is at times enlightening zage other times just plain frustrating.
