Jennifer at Romance Novel News rated Safeword: Matte a Recommended Read.
Shari at Delighted Reader rated it an A, and said it’s an incredibly honest, refreshing and delightfully painful book.
Rebecca at Guilty Indulgence gave it a 4 out of 5. She liked the fact it shows submission is not a weakness, which spins into a rant about press coverage of Fifty Shades of Grey (which I basically agree with, BTW), and then gets back on topic to say:
The bdsm scenes were original – not the same old, same old – and pushed boundaries. Sam’s inner strength and also her need for connection through submission are the most profound elements that will compel readers to read more by this author.
Safeword: Matte is an honest look into a deliciously erotic world.
Diana at The Forbidden Bookshelft gave it 4½ stars out of 5 and said:
When it comes to S&M love stories, Candace Blevins knows her stuff. Her latest SAFEWORD: MATTE hits *all* the right buttons for my inner masochist. It gives a positive portrayal of a safe, sane and consensual S&M relationship. Yes, there are “loving sadists,” and the book’s hero, Ethan, is a swoon-worthy example.
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to read Safeword: Matte.
