Reliable, trustworthy, loyal to a fault – Sawyer is the kind of man other men want to be; a real man’s man. But behind the facade of a his tough exterior and deadly silence hides a strong, tortured man with dark secrets. Always content to be in the shadows, now is the time of his sexual awakening.

When Sawyer realized that there were women who unabashedly wanted to be dominated and controlled, and there was a world that embraced such things as domination and submission – everything seemed to fall into place. Tired of pretending to be someone he wasn’t and suppressing his dominant tendencies, he takes the leap into the world of BDSM under the guidance of his friend and mentor, never to look back.

But the dark past and his heinous actions are hard to forget and even more difficult to leave behind. Will he be able to move forward and become the man he yearns to be?

This is Sawyer’s journey into becoming Dominant, Master, Sir.

Sawyer’s quest to become a Dom is an entertaining, thought provoking, and incredibly sexy journey which both compliments and continues the D/s Series…

“Sometimes our balance has to be upset and our course reset in order to help us navigate to our final destination. This is my final destination and where I was meant to be…”

Sawyer was a prominent character in the D/s trilogy, and during the final book be became enthralled with the BDSM lifestyle. This book is his journey to become better acquainted with the aspects of D/s relationships, as well as his training to become a Dom…


…a Dom is generous, loving and respectful to not only his submissive, but all women. He is gentlemanly in public, but playful in private and a savage in the bedroom.

Sawyer begins his training under the watchful eye of Dylan, Isabel, & Kerian (owner of Dark Asylum)… While he takes to Dominance quite proficiently, he struggles with his past and with the three women in his life.

While Sawyer provides us with a peek into the decadent Denver BDSM scene, this story focuses more on his emotional transformation…
He is forced to face his mental demons,
he must learn to trust others,
find contentment within himself…
And figure out which woman is his best match…

“I’m no mystery; I’m just a simple woman with complex fantasies and fetishes,”

Sara is a submissive handpicked by Isabel to assist in Sawyer’s training. She has recently returned to the Dark Asylum club after morning the loss of her husband & Master…


“…I need to be used. I know that sounds degrading, but I’ve made that choice of my own free will and I give myself to only those worthy of my complete submission and slavery…”

Since Becoming Sir was primarily about accepting your choices in life, is there anything you want to add, Lady Gaga?

Well said Lady Gaga, well said…
