Review: Safe Word by Teresa Mummert

A chance meeting with a stranger can turn your entire world upside down.

When Colton ‘Colt’ Bishop enters a bar in New York City, he has a plan. His job is to find an easy target and take her back to his place for a few days. He is working his way up the crime ladder doing a job he never wanted.

Lily Hilton has it all, but is hiding from a troublesome past. When she enters a bar downtown, and runs into her old high school crush, her entire world is turned upside down. She is determined to make him notice her, but that plan may work better than she expects.

Colton does not hesitate to take Lily home and use her as his new pawn, but their past begins to catch up with them as their secrets unravel and he must decide what is more important to him, protecting Lily or himself.

Old review which I forgot to add to my blog!

My Review

First half of the book for me was 2.5/3 stars last half was 4 stars so I'm saying 3.5 stars 

Well..hmmm..That was unexpected..

“A rose by any other name smells just as sweet. Isn’t that the line?”

I really don't know what i think of this book I read many good reviews on this and well i have to question uhmm did i miss something?
This book wasn't spectacular as some people made it out to be,i dint really get into it until half way through the book and i preferred the last half of the book it was more fast paced and put you on edge.I was so confused at parts and everything was so vague i wanted more! more detail more info at the start i was like wtf is going on!?! but yeah it gets better as you start finding out more about the situation

“This isn’t funny, Cole.”

“It’s Colt. I grew up and I’m not fucking laughing, sweetheart.”

At some parts Cole/Colt was just being plain mean!He was hard to like when he was being such a bitch..

But the more you find out about him and what he went through you feel sorry for him, he is just trying to protect himself and those he loves.Colt isn't a good guy he kidnaps women and holds them hostage until their loved ones pay a ransom but he isn't a bad guy either he is a misunderstood guy in a bad situation.I like how you are shown Colts memories from the past and how they connect with everything going on.This book is in Colt's POV which is very effective its gives us a better idea of everything going on and helps you to understand him better.

When i read that it was about kidnapping i wasn't really that intrigued i dint know where it would go from there and well i really wasn't expecting what happened!

The title of this book had me thinking that the book was about BDSM relationship but that wasn't the case.It was about two people who had dysfunctional childhood and found comfort in each other.I didn't think this book was as dark and twisted as it was made out to be.The ending was slightly vague i wanted more!
