#Review: Safeword: Matte – In Training by @CandaceBlevins

Matte2-200x300The wedding is four months away, and Ethan has promised to train Sam to handle a planned honeymoon activity. He’s calculated the math to figure out her goals each week. When she reaches the weekly target she gets a massage and lots of fun orgasms. But if she doesn’t, it’s the stainless steel cane.

All this along with navigating her clients’ drama, planning a wedding, dealing with her mother while planning the wedding, and having lots and lots of wild and kinky sex.

And we haven’t even mentioned the bachelorette party.

Warning: This title contains graphic language, consensual BDSM some may find objectionable, anal sex, bondage, and the use of toys including crops, clips, clamps, plugs, and gags.


I have read the first few stories in this series and when I say series, I do not want you to think you have to read them in order… You can read out of order, but I would not advise it – First, you might be spanked if you are caught reading them out of order and secondly, you might miss a piece of information that sets the story off for you. Then let me tell you that if you think you are going to read a story that speaks lightly of spanking and playing with butt plugs… you might not want to read this story. Ms. Candace writes these stories from her heart and soul. She does not half ass anything in her story. She gives you all the details that go with each characters kink. Read her warnings and enjoy them….

Sam is about as independent as a woman can be. She is a divorce attorney, so she has seen it all. The cases she has to deal with sometimes makes her doubt that a happily ever after ending can really happen. But thankfully her soul has not hardened to what her eyes and ears have witnessed. She knows that trust and communication plays a huge part of that happily every after. Even though she is about to marry the man of her dreams, Sam still has a few doubts… Can Ethan help her get past those doubts like he is helping her train for their honeymoon?

Ethan is a man that is head over heels in love with his soul mate – Sam. She is everything he wants in a woman and a whole lot more. He knows that when she carries a heavy caseload she starts questioning relationships in general. He knows how to push her buttons but he knows how to soothe her soul. He knows with every fiber in his body that this is the woman that was made to submit to only him.

The title of the book tells you everything you need to know. This is Sam’s In-Training book because Ethan is preparing her for the honeymoon of her life. They are getting ready to say their wedding vows in front of everyone they know. To profess their love, for whatever life brings their way. The part I love about this story is how much these two stress that trust and communication play a huge part in any relationship. Without those two things, there is no relationship. They show you how you can still have your independence but still rely on the other person in the relationship to be your shoulder to lean on but not be seen as needy.
