#Review: Safeword: Arabesque by Candace Blevins @CandaceBlevins
This is not my first Candice Blevins book and I know it will not be my last. Each book seems to get better and better. For some people the BDSM world is a taboo subject, something they refuse to talk about or even acknowledge exist. For them anything beyond vanilla sexuality is wrong. Then there are some authors that write about the BDSM world and know nothing beyond what little they read on the internet. Thankfully that is not a problem with any book wrote by Candice.
When ask if I would read/review Safeword: Arabesque I quickly jumped at the chance. I am slowly reading all of books I have missed before finding this amazing author. Candace does not create worlds, she provides world already existing for readers to explore. Each and every book is more than just about sex or how hot scenes might be. Each book is about real people whether they only exist in the authors mind or are real people they come alive on the pages for readers.
The cover of the book does not do the story within justice. My image of Isaac is totally different that the one on the cover but that does not really matter.
There is a lot of romance books available dealing with the BDSM scene but there is a big difference in what Candace writes and what is available. When Candace writes her books are about real people, people you would encounter in your everyday life but never know they might prefer a different private lifestyle than what others consider is normal.
For this reader everyone has their own normal and just because that normal is okay with one person and not the next does not mean it is wrong.
This was an amazing read. Really. From the beginning to the end I personally was captured by each character. To state this book has action is an understatement. This book has action, adventure, lots of hot sex, and a little mystery combined within. I took my time reading this book, four nights of wonderful pictures playing thru my head and dreaming of Isaac.
I savored each word of this book
Readers are greeted with a strong first chapter. Frisco loves woman but plays with men, or at least that is what he says. It is more like he loves men and plays with women. But that is not big deal for men. When wrote great I enjoy m/m romance. Most books I have tried have not been that great. Thankfully, that was not the case here. I really thought the story would be about Cassie and Isaac but boy was I wrong. I dream of having Isaac.
When Cassie turning to Isaac I thought the book was taking a different turn, boy was I wrong right?
I do not want to mention too much about the book. I will end up giving everything away.
I highly recommend this book to any who enjoy BDSM romance.
IF you enjoy Maya Banks then this is even better.
The characters are fully engaging and I seems like I was watching a movie instead of reading a book.
If I could I would lock Candace in a room and have her writes books 24/7 so I would always has her books to read.
If this book was a sports game Candace would of won hands down, to compare this book to foot ball Candace scored the winning touchdown on the opening kick.
I highly recommend this book to all who enjoy something different. A book that gives as much as it takes. If you think vanilla sex is the only way to enjoy intimacy with your partner then this book can either open your eyes to a whole new world or leave you never interested in sex again.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. All views are my own and do not reflect those of the author, my clients or tour companies I work with. This is not a paid review. To form your own opinion please support the author and acquire your own legal copy of the book.
Cassie’s introduction to kink throws her for a loop until a friend and his slave give her a gentle introduction. Unfortunately, her friend has issues when it comes to kinky activities with women, so Cassie goes looking for someone else to teach her.
She knows how to be safe, but a disastrous adventure ends with an ambulance ride to the emergency room, and the three men it hasn’t worked out with all come together to nurse her back to health.
Two Doms and two submissives in one house should be a nightmare waiting to happen, though under the right circumstances could be a dream come true.
Warning: Contains graphic language, consensual BDSM, male/male sexual practices, bondage, male chastity devices, and the use of toys including clamps, canes, paddles, floggers, plugs, and gags.
Readers with a history of sexual trauma may find elements of this story disturbing.
