This is going to be an uncharacteristic short review for me. Why? Because there is not a whole heck of a lot I can say about Safe Word without ruining some or all of the plot for you. I promised myself when I started writing book reviews that I would not post spoilers and I am sticking by that.
First I would like to just say how wonderful a job Teresa Mummert did with the promotion of Safe Word. Leading up to the release I was like a dog salivating after a bone. The amount of teasers, photos, and snippets she released just amped the anticipation of publication to the point where I think everybody I followed on Facebook was talking about it. So, a very big well done for that.
Now about the actual book. I really enjoyed Safe Word. To be honest it was not at all what I expected. I mean I knew there was going to be quite a bit of sex, and based on the teasers I knew it was going to be hot. But, on top of that there was a really intriguing, suspenseful and fast-paced story. I wasn't expecting that at all. There was a ton of action, and plenty of twists and turns.
The entire story is in Colt's perspective, and yes I know I sound like a broken record but I am so glad there are more and more books being written from the guy's point of view. I love it, and I loved Colt. He doesn't come across as exactly the greatest of guys but of course there is so much more to him than what we first see. Which, is another reason the story was so captivating. I mean again, this is told 100% from Colt's point of view. The fact that we don't know him fully until the end, just shows how well layered the story is.
So yes, I suggest that you read Safe Word. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the grittiness of the story, and the roller coaster twists and turns it will take you on.
