BDSM, Erotic Romance, LGBTQ

Cassie's introduction to kink throws her for a loop until a friend and his slave give her a gentle introduction. Unfortunately, her friend has issues when it comes to kinky activities with women, so Cassie goes looking for someone else to teach her.

She knows how to be safe, but a disastrous adventure ends with an ambulance ride to the emergency room, and the three men it hasn't worked out with all come together to nurse her back to health.

Two Doms and two submissives in one house should be a nightmare waiting to happen, though under the right circumstances could be a dream come true.

Warning: Contains graphic language, consensual BDSM, male/male sexual practices, bondage, male chastity devices, and the use of toys including clamps, canes, paddles, floggers, plugs, and gags.

With more than 400 pages, SAFEWORD ARABESQUE by Candace Blevins appeared to have the makings of the kind of story that would be guaranteed to capture my interest and keep it for an extended period of time.

However, after multiple attempts to make a connection with the characters, I had to face the realization that this simply wasn't going to be an easy book to read.

I've read a number of GLBT-themed books, but I have never been so challenged that I couldn't even muster a smidgeon of interest. My confusion began in the beginning with the cast of characters. Cam, Frisco and Cassie are essential parts of the story, but I couldn't develop any sort of connection. Granted, the subject matter is very intense since elements of BDSM play a central role. However, I just felt like part of the story was missing...and I could never figure out what it was.
