The first book in this series Safewords: Davenport was amazing. Yes there is sex and BDSM in the book. However there is more to the book than just that. This book takes a reader through the relationship of a couple that has the alternate lifestyle of BDSM. This book shows that even though this is something different it is not a bad thing to feel or enjoy this with you partner. However it should be with a partner that you trust.

One Sunday while sitting at work waiting on parts I started reading this book. I was so engrossed in reading that n associate that I was training had to come shake my shoulder to get my attention. He stated that he had been talking to me for over 5 minutes and I did not answer him. It has been several years that I have been this absorbed into a book.

This book is not for everyone. This book has sex scenes, whips, spanking, rough sex and bondage along with several D/s scenes.

Dana is recovering from the death of her husband. It has been 2 years and she is still finding out who she is as an individual. This is not something that can happen overnight. She has She felt like she lost everything when he died. She had to go out and find herself to know what she wanted in life. Yes, with her husband she did have a D/s relationship.

Zach is also recovering from the death of his wife. It has been around 2 years also. He is learning to live again. He has asked Dana to re-decorate his house to his taste and not what his wife wanted. Dana did not know anything about Zach’s lifestyle until she walks into his bedroom. Zach has a special bed designed for BDSM relationships. The author does not explain a lot about the bed, however I would love to see a bed like this.

This book is more than just about sex or a BDSM relationship. The author takes the reader on a expedition through all the problems a couple faces with problems from the past.

Thanks for an amazing read Candace.

The bunnies and I give this book carrots. ( )

"Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon" by Candace Blevins was a good (BDSM) erotic merage romantic read. This was a friendship with Zach, Dana, Brent and Jacob. Let me say this is a ADULT AUDIENCE ONLY! Now, having said that this novel deals with how these four people 'grow and develop a very close relationship.' "Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon" is the fifth in a series from this author and continues from Safeword Davenport #4... so my suggestion would be for you to read #4 before reading #5, however...#5 does stand alone and it is a well written amazing read. There will be many 'lessons to be learn and knowledge to be gained.' from this read. I do not want to give away any of this...other than to say...I hope I have your interest in wanting to pick up "Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon" to see what Mrs. Blevins can and does bring to her readers. Be ready for "a book that contains graphic language, consensual BDSM, bondage, extreme electrical play, enemas, and the use of toys including clamps, canes, plugs, cages, paddles, whips, and floggers. (That is the warning from the beginning of the book DO believe it!)." Now, if all of that doesn't bother you...you will be ready for this read. Since I am a book reviewer... I real all kinds of reads and I will only say WOW to this one. Indeed, it held my attention! Having to ask permission? What does that have to do with all of this? ... You must pick up this read to find out. Even though there is much sex and exploration that seems to go non stop, however, you really will get a good amazing story of loss and love.

Would I recommend "Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon" to all Adult readers..well the decision is simply up to you....I found it quite interesting and well written novel that left me saying WOW! By the way I gave this read 5 stars! ( )

Let me just take a moment here to say holy kinkiness! Wow. There's just no word suitable for the way this book makes you feel. I have never read Ms. Blevins' work before now, but I can assure you that this will most definitely not be my last book by her. I loved every minute of this book. I picked it up instantly after finishing the last pages for Safewords: Davenport. I had to know where Zach and Dana ended up with their lives, and I just didn't want to wait. So, I sat down and once again, as with Davenport, I was swept away.

I have to go ahead and warn you though. If you don't like breath taking intensity and emotional turmoil that will leave your head spinning, then this is most definitely not for you. But, if you are like me, and you love the feeling that you get when you read a book and can place yourself in the center of the story, feeling the emotions and pain, the thoughts and hear the words as if you are the character, then please grab a copy of this incredibly written novel. You must read this after reading Davenport. Zach and Dana need to be learned about from the beginning to grasp their struggles and emotions in their entirety.

Dana is a young widow who redesigned Zach's interior to fit his style after he, too, became a widower. She learned of his kinkier side and felt and instant attraction to him in book 1. Zach had so much about him and was perfectly molded for his character. I wanted to be in Dana's shoes from the start for Davenport, right on through Davenport and Chiffon! Seeing the way she struggled with fully submitting to someone who was not her deceased husband was intense. There were times that Ms. Blevins nearly brought me to tears with the inner workings of Dana.

I don't like to give away spoilers so I won't. I will tell you that the way the story plays out with Zach and Dana, Brent and Jacob is one that you won't expect. The workings of a Dom/sub relationship or a TPE relationship are not easy, I found. Seeing life through Dana's eyes brings on a whole new understanding to the workings of a kink lifestyle. But, the way that Ms. Blevins brought those to play into the story was so lifelike and intense that every slap of the whip vibrates through the reader. Will Zach and Dana get their happy ending? Or will Dana realize that Zach is too much of a Dom to suit her masochistic ways? Will Jacob return her feelings? And what about Brent?

So much more than just those few questions are answered here. I will tell you that this story is not deserving of simply 5 Books in rating. It needs more than that. Words and numbers can't be placed on a book like this. Fifty Shades of Grey, it is not. No. It's better than that in my eyes (and that's saying a lot since I fell in love with Fifty!). Again, I warn you. If you aren't into signing contracts and using safewords; if you aren't in bondage and TPE, don't get this book. But, if you want to feel the power that flows from the pages of this novel, get this book now. It is so worth the time spent reading it. There are lessons to be learned and knowledge to be gained. I enjoyed Davenport, but I fell in love with Davenport and Chiffon.
