Molly Reviews: 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.

Publisher’s Note: This book has previously been released as part of the His Rules anthology with Pride Publishing.

The premise for this story was really good. The blurb pretty much made me request this book because BDSM + under cover + unwilling partner = happy Molly. I was leery of the short length because it’s hard to pack lots of story into a short space. I will say this was better than I originally anticipated but still needs fleshing out and to be a bit longer. There’s so much potential for these characters and story line. Carter and Damien/Crow have wonderful on page chemistry. You can feel some of their emotions a you read but there’s not enough story to get a full sense of who they are as individuals and as a couple. I’m deeply impressed with how much emotion and story Ms. Cayto was able to fit in such a short space. Not many authors would be able to do this story justice in the amount of space given. I would love to see her expand this story to a full length novel and have her show (PLEASE show! No telling. I desperately want to see these scenes as they unfold!) how Carter got in the position he’s in. Some of the emotions he goes through in the three years he’s in captivity. How Crow gets started and more of the post take down for these two. I would read it in a hot minute because this story has the potential to be a million star read. And I would gladly read it again and again.
