Unbound Commitment by Sierra Cartwright
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another GREAT book by Sierra Cartwright!
This one... ohhh, this book. One of the things i constantly tell people is that this lifestyle "isn't about the sex", it's about so very much more. It's about trust and honesty and all the beautiful and hard things that entails.
This book explains that statement in a way that i never could. But then again, i'm not a writer. This book is about the training of a slave, the hard realities of it, how a submissive must learn to trust, even though she's not been able to in the recent, or far reaching, past. It's about letting go and just "being".
This book got in my head, and made me take a good long look at myself (and my relationship). To me it was so much more than "just another erotica story."
i normally only read this genre for the entertainment value, but i've found lately that some of the erotica writers that i'm enjoying, are either connected to the lifestyle or have done their homework and have learned the real inner-workings of a D/s or M/s couple, and they bring some of that into their books.
Don't get me wrong, i still enjoy some of the erotic "fantasy" books for some escapism, but this one didn't hit me as one of those.
Master James is a no nonsense Dominant and Rachel wants to learn from the best. i feel she got *much more* than she bargained for.
The book has some "fantasy based elements" of course, but there are also lessons within the pages that every submissive or submissive slave can take away from this book. If you're a slave, you'll recognize them right away, if you're a submissive, (and or a slave) you'll find inspiration in this book and more than a few passages for food for thought in your own relationship.
All in all, this was a great book, the submissive training fairly dead on by a Master that only asks for complete trust and honesty. Cornerstones.
