Safeword Quinacridone by Candace Blevins

Safeword Quinacridone

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 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.

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.


He was quiet a moment as he yielded into traffic on a major road, and Cara caught her breath as they dove into a tunnel and she realized they were under the bay.

Travis continued. “I’ve arranged for you to be the candelabra during dinner. You’ll be positioned on the dining room table with wax poured on you and candles stuck into the wax, and you’ll lie there silently as the table’s set. We’ll light the candles as dinner begins and you’ll remain perfectly still while we eat — an exquisite work of art for us to enjoy. You’ll wear a mesh hood to block your vision and hold your mouth closed during this portion. I have latex hoods for later, but the mesh will help you stay cool with the candles burning on and around you.”

Cara’s heart did several flip-flops in sync with the lights coming one after the other as they drove through the tunnel. She closed her eyes and took a breath, trying to get her bearings as she said, “My sketches. You got that from my sketches.”

Her eyes opened in time to see him nod. “I did. Does it turn you on, or are you upset?”

“Oh, I’m incredibly turned on, but I’m also touched you’ve gone out of your way to make my fantasy come true. I mean, a room full of strangers who don’t know me and can’t even see my face? It’s better than I imagined.”

Jen's Review : 

To each their own.. right :D
Ok I knew before reading this book I was going in deeper then I normally like with my BDSM books –

And yet I chose to read it anyways. Going far and beyond my comfort zone with this book, I can’t say I hated it. But I can't say I loved it either. 

Usually there is some play in BDSM books that get me excited. And this one did have a couple that I did enjoy.  I was really curious about the whole thing.

Cara is struggling artist, but she’s good at what she does. She doesn't have relationships with guys, because of her strange kink.. She likes it rough.

Travis, lol such a big change in him from the shy computer geek to the over the top controlling Sadistic Dom that he is.

When Travis see’s Cara’s art on her computer, he can’t help but be pulled to her a little. 

Taking Cara out to dinner wasn't an easy invitation for her to except. But she did, and when she took him home for a quickie, She realized there was more to the multimillion- dollar computer geek who took away her control and made her enjoy sex even without hurting her.

The next time they saw each other, Cara finds out why.
Travis has had money since he was 15 years old. He used his money to teach him the way to properly hurt someone without doing harm.
And Cara needed that pain.

So once these two figured out what they both needed, things started getting creative. I have to say I was shocked, but not appalled by what they were doing. I've enjoyed BDSM books before and this was no different. I can get inside the characters head and see HOW they are enjoying themselves.

But the “Water Sports” towards the end really had me… I could handle the objectifying things – that was pretty interesting actually, and even though I don’t fully understand why a woman would want to do that to herself, it doesn't have to make sense to me. I can see it made sense to her. But that one scene in the garage..It didn't kill the story, it worked in there, and it was dragged out so it was done in a ... tasteful way (no pun intended) but it was just alittle hardcore for me to focus on it like I should have.

Other than that. The story was pretty good. I enjoyed getting inside this couple’s heads and learning more about the things I will never be brave enough to try.
