Review of book:

I have to admit, I enjoyed Safeword Interrupted.  I found my introduction to Dakota Traces work to be solidly entertaining and powerfully emotional in its exploration of a D/s relationship between the two main characters, drawing me in before I was fully aware of being on the journey. This isn't a sanitized BDSM-like book - there's a lot of edge to the storyline - but I promise you, it's worth it.  Even when I winced at Deacons choice of endearment towards Bethany at times, I felt it was the author being true to the character shed created.

Apart from the scorching sex and there was certainly that Bethany and Deacon were a real couple.  They had distinct personalities that oftentimes rubbed the other one a little raw, I felt that added realism to the storyline.  The vulnerability each kept under wraps also endeared them to me, and I found that I'd held my breath during pivotal points in the plot. Bethany was frightened of exposing the depth of her feelings to Deacon, and he was, in turn, frightened of failing (and I'm not going to tell you at what), yet they still risked it all over the opportunity to be with one another.

I even enjoyed the secondary characters in Safeword Tim and Uncle LeRoy especially.  I'd love to read their stories sometime, because you know the two of them have a lot to say.  Dakota Trace has a bonafide winner with Safeword Interrupted, and has earned herself a spot on my go to authors list.
