Review & Giveaway ~*~ Safeword: Rainbow by Candace Blevins

Tyler and Viv have found each other again after a three day fling three years ago. Ideally suited for each other, they try to make a relationship work. However, they soon realize Tyler was expecting a 24/7 total power exchange relationship and Vivian will never be a full-time submissive. As they try to find a compromise, Vivian must deal with what a Total Power Exchange means, even if it’s only a part time power exchange, and Tyler must decide if he can live with a sometimes-Master and sometimes-boyfriend relationship.

Will they find their pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?

This title was published in 2010 with less than half of the current content. The story has been considerably rewritten and contains a great deal of new material for your reading enjoyment. I think it’s a far better story now, but if you read the original, you can be the judge!

Warning: Contains graphic language, consensual BDSM, bondage, and the use of toys including clamps, canes, plugs, paddles, and floggers.

Review ~
This book simply stunned me.  I was excited to read it and have had other books by Candace Blevins on my TBR list, but well it's such a freakin' long list they honestly got shuffled around.  Never again. With this one book, Candace has moved up to a must read author.

I didn't read the first version of this story (obviously) so I can't compare the two for you if you did.  But This extended version is hot, sexy, hot, emotional, hot, thrilling ohhh and I think I mentioned it was hot. . . right?  LOL

Tyler and Viv are an amazing couple and I love that Candace takes us into a deeper BDSM relationship than is usually presented.  I love the 24/7 aspect and was curious how they would make it work and really wanted things to work out with Tyler and Viv.  But Viv has issues that most submissives have had and I love the way Candace works them out.  I know Viv's issues are something that a submissive 24/7 or not deals with on a regular basis and that made the characters so real and authentic that I wanted to be friends with them and keep reading their story. (yes I am in a 24/7 relationship and could totally relate)

I had one downfall that bugged me for awhile that most people won't even notice so I won't go into details because it would give a few spoilers probably.  But even the issue I had didn't take away from my enjoyment of the story (it only took away from some of the realism for me).  Highly recommend picking this one up and getting a little kinky with Tyler and Viv. . .

Author Bio
Candace Blevins is a southern girl who loves to travel the world.

She lives with her husband of 15 years and their two daughters. When not working or driving kids all over the place she can be found reading, writing, meditating, or swimming.

Candace writes romance books about characters who happen to have some extreme kinks. Relationships can be difficult enough without throwing power exchange into the mix, and her books show characters who care enough about each other to fight to make the relationship work.

Each book in the Safeword series highlights a couple with a different BDSM issue to resolve. All books are standalone books and can be read in any order, with the exception of the two Davenport books, since Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon is a sequel to Safeword: Davenport.
