Review: Safewords Davenport and Chiffon

Safewords Davenport and Chiffon
Safewords Davenport and Chiffon by Candace Blevins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dana continues her Domme journey with Jacob as well as her sub journey with Zach. Based on the emotional upheavals in the first of this two part series, one would expect this book to be a smooth smexy sailing of sadistic scenes. This would be a false assumption.

A happily ever after story is basically when the author decides to end the story. Usually, this is after a happy event. Ms. Blevins appears to enjoy taking the long and winding road which also happens to be an emotional roller-coaster. While Dana is finally reconciled with her past, now Zach's wounds from his past are torn open. His method of handling it, is quite understandable. His choice of words on the other hand, are easily misinterpreted by a fragile Dana.

If this book is designed to cause heartbreak, it succeeded. The happily ever after evaporates in an explosive meltdown which was unpredicted and throws the reader into a loop. There are unresolved issues between Dana and Zach which are miscommunication and end in a terrible gut wrenching pain. If it were not for Jacob and Brett, this could have gone really badly.

Emotionally exhausting trope aside, the BDSM scenes in this second part are OUT OF THIS WORLD. The metal chain? The electrical scene this second time around is screaming HAWT! The punishment of Dana's mistake is frighteningly strict. The truth or dare game was intense. As soon as the game was proposed, the reader's stomach most likely dropped as a sense of foreboding appeared.

One would think the story ends here. All is well. Instead, Ms. Blevins continues to deliver further bonding between the quartet with additional BDSM scenes which has the reader wincing and lusting while trying very hard not to take time out for a little "alone time". The punishments are reinforced in this story and they are scary. Zach means business, as does Brent.

The finale with the marriage preparation, the wedding and honeymoon ends this wild ride with a bang. The piercing, orgasm denial, and constant anal training is breathtaking and intense. This book is a fitting end to a lovely set. This book is recommended for BDSM lovers who love the TPE as well as SM.
