Review: Safeword by Samantha Cayto

A dangerous game turns into unexpected pleasure…

Carter’s dream of running from his abusive family into the arms of the perfect Dom has been shattered. Virtually enslaved by a vicious arms dealer, he has to submit to any man his master gives him to.

Undercover agent Damien Crow is close to putting away the arms dealer he’s been hunting for years. All he has to do to gain the man’s trust is ‘play’ with the pretty boy with the frightened eyes and alluring corset piercing down his back. Being straight and not a practicing Dom, he has doubts he can pull off the effort. One look at his playmate changes his mind. The stakes are high, and he must put on a good show.

At first, Carter assumes Damien is just another brutal Dom to survive. But the big, brooding man reignites his passion and gives him something Carter hasn’t had in years—a safeword. It might be his last chance to enjoy being a sub and he embraces the role no matter what the consequences.

Normally, I would give a quick rundown of what a book is about before starting my review. However, Safeword is a very short book and anything I could possibly say about it is covered in the blurb. Instead of being redundant, let me get to what I thought about the story itself.

Sometimes the problem with a short book is that they are too short. With that shortness, the issues that you find irksome are harder to forget because, well, the book isn’t long enough to forget about them. Therefore, I’m just going take a vacay from my brain’s reality and not let it bother me too much that Crow had a crash course in BDSM, and suddenly he’s a Dom overnight. Nor am I going to let the fact he’s a straight man having M/M sex for the first time, and instantly knows what to do. Nope, not going to let those things bother me one bit.

So other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play. Actually, it wasn’t bad. The two main characters, Carter and Crow, were actually enjoyable. Carter, despite being in a rough situation, still was sweet. Crow, is stereotypical as an undercover agent. There is a good chemistry between them and the sex was hot.

The story itself while good, was just background to what was happening behind closed doors. I personally would have liked a wee bit more information regarding how Crow and his agency knew he needed to be trained to be a Dom. However, the story is short and very in the moment so if one doesn’t put too much thought into it, Safeword then makes a good quick read.
