Overview

What happens when an introverted artist who only likes sex when it's a one-night stand meets a computer-geek-extraordinaire with his own sexy secrets? Objectification, romance, pain, adoration, lots of kinky toys, and oodles and oodles of wonderfully imaginative sex.

Join Cara and Travis on their journey to mesh their distinctive sexual tastes into a loving relationship with blow-your-mind kink.

Ob•jec•ti•fi•ca•tion:
1. Treating a person as an object for use, with no regard
for a person's personality or sentience.
2. Regarding someone as a commodity; considering them
merely an instrument towards one's sexual pleasure.

Examples of OBJECTIFICATION:
1. A woman is on her back at the edge of a tall bed with
hands and feet bound together and restrained above her
head. A curtain drapes from a canopy above and puddles
on the backs of her thighs. The man about to penetrate
her sees only female genitals available for use.
2. A woman is dressed in a full latex blow-up doll costume
with durable latex ‘pockets’ stuffed into her orifices.
She is bound into a position giving easy access to all
three holes at a party. Her face is completely covered
excepting nose and mouth. The men do not know who
is in the costume.

Safeword: Quinacridone is a stand-alone book. You do not need to have read the previous books in this series.

I fell in love with the hero from the start. I was really in the moment at all times with this story and felt like I was fighting for this relationship right along with the characters.

The scenes literally jumped off the page, sometimes making me want to run into Travis’s arms…sometimes away!

Overall, this was an excellent and intense read. I feel that every book Ms. Blevins writes is better than the last and this was her best so far. I look forward t

Meet the Author

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.

    Review:

    "Safeword Quinacridone" by Candace Blevins was a "NOVEL THAT SHOULD BE READ BY 18+, DUE TO LANGUAGE AND SEXUAL SCENES THAT ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR A YOUNGER AUDIENCE. THIS IS HARDCORE SEX, BDSM IN IT'S FINEST. PLEASE BE WARNED THAT THIS BOOK WILL HAVE CRUDE LANGUAGE AND SEX SCENES IN IT." Candace Blevins has done it again where she takes one into another world of BDSM that is very erotic. "Reading an exploration of objectification in it's extreme form was quite an eye-opener for me." Be ready for a very intense book that has been well research by this author. The two characters "Cara and Travis have established preferred kinks are well developed and portrayed throughout this love story." Be ready for some crazy and wild things that go on in the read. Now, if this is your kind of genre read then I would recommend this read to you.

    Safeword: Quinacridone is a stand-alone book. You do not need to

    Safeword: Quinacridone is a stand-alone book. You do not need to have read the previous books in this series.
     Ob•jec•ti•fi•ca•tion: 
    1. Treating a person as an object for use, with no regard for a person’s personality or sentience.
    2. Regarding someone as a commodity; considering them merely an instrument towards one’s sexual pleasure.




     Examples of OBJECTIFICATION: 
    1. A woman is on her back at the edge of a tall bed with hands and feet bound together and restrained above her head. A curtain drapes from a canopy above and puddles on the backs of her thighs. The man about to penetrate her sees only female genitals available for use.
    2. A woman is dressed in a full latex blow-up doll costume with durable latex ‘pockets’ stuffed into her orifices. She is bound into a position giving easy access to all three holes at a party. Her face is completely covered excepting nose and mouth. The men do not know who is in the costume.




    This is the basis of Safeword: Quinacridone, Cara's kink is the need to be objectified, when she meets the uber rich, and equally as kinky in his own way, Travis a relationship unlike any you have read develops. 




    I can not stress to you enough if you don't like you BDSM on the (for lack of a better word) darker side you wont like this book, however if seeing a relationship build between two people who have some pretty extreme kinks and the lengths they will go to for each other and the love they have for one another then you will love Safeword: Quinacridone.




    This book pushed some of my own hard limits in what I read, I don't usually take on the review of a book that includes watersports and the extremes of objectification was just that extreme however Ms. Blevins was able to write all of that into a lovestory that draws you in, characters that you want to love and in a manner that you understand that is what the character wanted it is their kink that they are not being abused or mistreated. That can be a hard sell when it comes to understanding the need of someone to go to the extremes that take place in this book however it is written in such a way that you do understand. 




    My hat is off to Candace Blevins for taking a subject that can be difficult to get right and writing it so that it is understandable and an integral part of the love shared by Cara and Travis. 




    I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    ****THIS REVIEW SHOULD BE READ BY 18+, DUE TO LANGUAGE AND SEXUA

    ****THIS REVIEW SHOULD BE READ BY 18+, DUE TO LANGUAGE AND SEXUAL SCENES THAT ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR A YOUNGER AUDIENCE. THIS IS HARDCORE SEX, BDSM IN IT'S FINEST. PLEASE BE WARNED MY REVIEW WILL REFLECT THAT. ****

    I was excited to get to review Safeword Quinacridone as I was familiar with Ms. Blevin's work, however, I had no idea what Quinacridone was. Well, I looked it up and just in case you are not familiar either, here is the definition: Quinacridone is a red powder. It is an organic compound with the molecular formula C20H12N2O2. It is used as a pigment; analogs bearing this motif are known as quinacridones.

    Now the cover makes complete sense, right? But what about the book? Note that, before we go any further, YOU HAVE BEEN FOREWARNED REGARDING THE CONTENT OF THIS BOOK. ;)


    The Good: I found this a very interesting book. Travis was far from your stereotypical Alpha male that I read so many books about. He is, quite frankly, a Geek - a Geek with a capital G. Is that a problem? Not for me...I am married to a Geek. Travis is a brilliant Geek. You know, the kind that graduates at something like 12 from high school and ends up with a PhD and two Masters by 23? Yes, that kind of Geek. He is also hugely wealthy. And, he has a kink. Yes and it is a pretty big one too - he is a Sadist. The heroine in the book is not your stereotypical character either...and she is perfect for Travis. Cara is an extremely gifted artist of many genres. She too has a kink - she craves objectification. Oh and they both have emotional baggage. Their relationship is very unique and I truly enjoyed getting to know them and them getting to know each other as well as their selves. Ms. Blevins blended those three things seamlessly. I loved the way that Travis tried so hard to show Cara the love he wanted to and had to learn to show her the love she needed. The same went for Cara. Theirs was not an easy relationship (what real relationship is?) and I applaud Ms. Blevins for writing it just that way. The timing was perfect with the tempo having it's ups and downs and that the characters kept beat with it all along the way.

    The Bad?: At first I thought the book seemed to not flow smoothly and that was something I did not like. Upon reflection however, that sense of awkwardness was actually perfectly orchestrated to go along with the relationship between Travis and Cara. I also originally thought I would mention that I thought that some of the experiences, the degradation, the extreme BDSM elements and language were too much. By the time I completed the book however, I realized that that was simply my own personal hangups, not gratuitous elements in the story. Like they say in the book, they are not broken, just different.

    The Snuggly: Now, I suppose how Snuggly this book is will be highly subject to what turns you on. I loved it when either Travis or Cara did something for the other, whether sexual in nature or not. They had some amazing Vanilla sex in here and I found that quite tender. Since my kink is bondage and domination, there was sufficient to make me want to squeal with delight. If you like sadism or objectification, you will be doing way more than squealing. Over all, it will take way more than a simple cold shower to release the total Snuggly factor found in this book. Oh yeah... a whole lot more. ;)

    I fell in love with both characters, despite the times when I became a bit squeamish. The book was entertaining, educational, full of fantasy and that hard-to-define IT factor in my opinion. I would absolutely read it again and totally look forward to reading the books Ms. Blevin's has written that I have yet to consume. So we are down to the question of if you should read it. My answer is, if you have read the description above, all of the warnings and my review and you find yourself intrigued, excited and otherwise interested, then Safeword Quinacridone is a great fit for you. I rated it a solid 5/5 Stars and 5/5 Flames . Oh, and PS ~ I want a pair of F**k Me shoes. ;)

    BDSM At It's Finest!
    **** THIS REVIEW SHOULD BE READ BY 18+, DUE TO LANGUAGE AND SEXUAL SCENES THAT ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR A YOUNGER AUDIENCE. THIS IS HARDCORE SEX, BDSM IN IT'S FINEST. PLEASE BE WARNED MY REVIEW WILL HAVE CRUDE LANGUAGE AND SEX SCENES IN IT. ****




    The BDSM life style is not for everyone. I have to say that it is intriguing but takes some getting used to. I have to say that after reading Safeword I really got a birds eye view of what some peoples kinks are that can be extreme. I have to say that I would definitely not be into extreme or regular objectification because I don't follow rules and I hate to be bossed around. If I want to have sex a certain way then that is how I want it and having someone dictate everything to me is a no go deal breaker. But I have to say that this couple made it work in the end because they both had similar fetishes and they made it work for them.




    Cara is an artist and she draws things that have so much feeling she is a genius with what she does. She also has a secret because for all intense and purposes you think Cara is a sweet girl but she loves sex and loves it rough. She is not one to shy away in the bed so when she meets someone and they go at it she tells them she likes it rough they either leave or give it to her rough. Then she meets Multimillionaire Travis the computer geek with a secret of his own. He loves sex as well because he is a Sadistic Dom. Travis gives it rough because that is the way he likes it and he will not be with someone who can not fulfill his needs and his desires. When he and Cara meet over her drawings the two have an instant attraction and when they realize they both like it the same they begin a BDSM relationship that had my head spinning because lord knows I would not do some of those sexual scenes they did. HELL NO! But to each his own and they made it work.
