Our Review of Safe Word
Rating: 4 stars out of 5
Let’s start off by saying that Teresa Mummert knows how to tease us with HOT teasers of her book! Months before the release of Safe Word, she was posting really steamy teasers/photos–that just made us want to read it then and now! We could not wait for the release of this book!
Colton and Lily. Or should we say Cole and Rose. Because their love story is so unconventional, it just made it more unique and interesting. We had a lot of emotions reading this book. We wanted to hate Colton–he was a bad, bad boy. And we’re not talking in a cool, rock star way. Literally he was bad. His job is to kidnap woman for ransom. We also felt angry and scared of him, but mostly I wanted Colt to be happy; to find peace and love with Lily.
And Lily…was she nuts? Did she suffer from Stockholm Syndrome? Nope. You get to understand her story and why she was in love and protected Colt (and vice versa). These two had a deep past and we just wanted it to all work out in the end. But we’re not going to say if it does, you’ll have to read it yourself!
Overall, Safe Word kept us on the edge and rooting for Colt and Lily. Their scenes were definitely hot, erotic and dangerous. Safe word is a twisted read and I’m happy we spent our afternoon in Colt and Lily’s world.
I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney’s Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn’t resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I’d like to tell you a story.
