A Novel Affair [book blog]

My not-so-secret affair with romance novels

Blog Tour: SAFE WORD – Teresa Mummert


ANA Review: 3½ hearts

A chance meeting with a stranger can turn your entire world upside down.

When Colton ‘Colt’ Bishop enters a bar in New York City, he has a plan. His job is to find an easy target and take her back to his place for a few days. He is working his way up the crime ladder doing a job he never wanted.

Lily Hilton has it all, but is hiding from a troublesome past. When she enters a bar downtown, and runs into her old high school crush, her entire world is turned upside down. She is determined to make him notice her, but that plan may work better than she expects.

Colton does not hesitate to take Lily home and use her as his new pawn, but their past begins to catch up with them as their secrets unravel and he must decide what is more important to him, protecting Lily or himself.

Safe Word is not at all what I expected… Which is always a pleasant surprise. I’ve seen the smoking hot teasers and was braced for full-blown erotica, perhaps BDSM. Instead I got romance with a bit of suspense thrown in and I liked it.
The entire story was from Colt’s POV, which by now you should know I love! I’ll take dual POVs any day but getting only the male perspective is truly a rare treat. In this book, Colt’s flashbacks are so very important because I was able to get a sense of why he acts the way he does and how he grew into the man he is now.
Throughout the story, I had a love-hate relationship with Colt. For goodness sake, the man makes his living kidnapping women for ransom. He’s big, bad, and scary to the bone. But underneath the rough exterior is a good man, and I just wanted him to find happiness with Lily.
Safe Word was, at times, confusing.. and there were instances where I felt like something was missing. But overall, this story was hot, twisted, and just plain different. I’m glad I got to read it!

Teresa Mummert

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.
