Review – Safeword Quinacridone (Safeword #6) by Candace Blevins

Candace Blevins does it again.  She brings you deep into another world of BDSM that is erotic, exciting and extremely realistic. ~ Guilty Pleasures

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.
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.

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 puddleson 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.

Warning: This title contains graphic language, consensual BDSM, extreme objectification, bondage, watersports (one scene), chemical play, fisting, temporary body modification with saline injections (one scene), and the use of toys including clamps, canes, plugs, paddles, whips, floggers, and zip-ties.


Candace Blevins does it again. She brings you deep into another world of BDSM that is erotic, exciting and extremely realistic. Believe me when I tell you that this book, like her others, are NOT for the faint at heart. If the extreme using of women disturbs you, I do not recommend this book at all. But, as in all warnings, it is safe and consensual and you have to remember that through Safeword: Quinacridone!

Travis – An extravagant, extremely wealthy, computer-geek.

Cara – A starving artist.

Travis and Cara meet by accident and she is totally turned-off by him. She has no idea who he is atruegemawardand he’s a geek – how is he going to turn her on. She needs hard, heart-pounding, inconsequential sex. His type can never bring her to an orgasm, never satisfy her. But, there is something about him that gets her to agree to a date … just one date and she knows she’ll never see him again. She needs to be used and abused and she is sure he can never fulfill her wants. Sex to her is a quick fuck with a nameless person – hard and fast – no love for her. Surprise, Travis can fulfill her innermost desires; the geek facade is just that and he ends up touching a part of her that she never thought would exist again.

Travis has no idea how to date. No idea how to make small talk with a woman – he actually pulls out a list of questions during dinner to try to keep the small-talk going. But, Travis has a secret, one that can destroy him, the business that has him a multimillionaire and anyone around him. Travis is a true Masochist. He usually has to pay for sex since his “monster” is unbelievable if not on it’s leash. But, he’s drawn to Cara and the creative visions that she has. He has to have her – he has to trust that she will not betray him and reveal his secret.

I totally fell in love with Travis. Yes, in love. He was kind, loving and so cute throughout the book. Until he let’s his monster out. Then he becomes his alter-ego that demands and wants sex in the most primal and primitive ways. I felt sorry for him – Cara was so hard at times, he would want to bring her back from sub-space and she would refuse and run away. It broke my heart that the one thing a Dom can do to show his love and gratitude, she turned away. But, she eventually comes around and fulfills his needs. She finally sees that he is giving everything to her that she needs but she is not giving back so she works to make that happen.

WOW, I guess that is the only word for Safeword: Quincridone. When I read the “blurb” for Quincridone (which is a red pigment, by the way) I was a little nervous about reading it. Objectification: Treating a person as an object for use, with no regard for a person’s personality or sentience. And, believe me, there is a lot of it here … she was used as a table, a lamp, a puppet and as just a pussy/asshole to be used – without seeing her face. And, watersports? Okay, that peaked my curiosity, until I started reading about it. Suffice it to say, if you have any qualms about bodily-functions, you may become a little bit queasy. I did have to walk away a few times and get myself together before I could read on. Some things are disturbing to this very vanilla person but, the way it was written was phenomenal! This was BDSM to the extreme – not just whips, chains, hand-cuffs, floggers – a total different BDSM that shows a true masochist and a true sadist at it’s best. Will I read more of Candace Blevins? Most definitely. I absolutely enjoy her characters. They are all totally different and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.

  1. It sounds like a book not for the faint of heart. What better facade than a geeky ,bumbling man, but the interior has a monster to find on his kind of sex. Travis you say is a kind loving after care person, but Cara does ‘t understand the psyche behind such a relationship. I guess shee learns and a relationship follows. This book belongs in my kindle, that is for sure.

  2. Sounds like an intense sexual book. I’ll have to think about it. Thanks for the review.

  3. Sounds very extreme and intense, certainly interesting. Definitely TBR. Thanks for the review!
