Editor's Note: Before you read this, be sure and read Safeword Davenport first.

So to recap real quick, I liked Dana, Brent and Jacob. I tolerated Zach. I really couldn't see what Dana found appealing about him. After reading this, I am honestly still trying to figure it out.

Dana is both a submissive and a masochist as we found out last time. She also discovered she has a Dominant Streak but isn't really into Switching with someone. So her relationship with Jacob fulfills the second part and her

Dana continues her Domme journey with Jacob as well as her sub journey with Zach. Based on the emotional upheavals in the first of this two part series, one would expect this book to be a smooth smexy sailing of sadistic scenes. This would be a false assumption.

A happily ever after story is basically when the author decides to end the story. Usually, this is after a happy event. Ms. Blevins appears to enjoy taking the long and winding road which also happens to be an emotional roller-coaster. Wh

This pretty much sums up the emotions drawn from this book. From safe contentment to frustrating drama to heartbreaking mis-reaction, to deus ex machina (or, you know, a spanking bench) to soaking panties, this was a wild ride. And it was absolutely worth it.

I have read the first part of this duet a long time ago, and it took me less than 20 seconds to remember who everyone was, what was their place in the story (or in the bed, or gard

I like the author, I don't love this book as much as her others. I also grew to like Zach less in this book than in the previous Safeword Davenport. I like all of the other character's. Some of the kink veers outside of my zone, but Blevins writes so well I can squirm past it. Blevins is defiantly not BDSM light, and may not be for everyone. I do recommend her for lovers of harder kink who also like HEA.

Kitty's review posted on Guilty Pleasures

Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon is the continuation of Dana’s story, working through her grief over the loss of her husband, Garnet and beginning her life with Zach. Under no circumstances could you read this book without reading Safeword: Davenport first. You will be lost, you won’t understand why things happen in this book the way they do and you’ll absolutely regret not reading a wonderfully written book.

With that said, Davenport and Chiffon picks up

Safeword Davenport and Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon are two halves of a longer story, one that begins with a woman slowly, almost reluctantly, recovering from the death of her husband (the only Master she's ever known), and a man recovering from the death of his wife (not the only, but the most significant slave he's ever known). There's a romance there, a promise of an outwardly seeming normal relationship, but one built around the idea of a total power exchange. As you might expect, it's a ...more

We got to see more about the relationship between Zach/Dana/Jacob/Brent as the become a foursome. I liked the story for the most part but I don't see how Dana forgave Zach so quick after he refused her submission and hurt her so bad. I think he should have had to give Dana a forfeit. It made me laugh out loud when he is made to admit he is reluctant to hurt her and leave marks because his ex's best friend beat his wife and hurt her badly. Let me say here, that his problem was he let it be seen f ...more

Today's review is on Safewords-Davenport & chiffon by: Candace Blevins

First and foremost I must repeat the warning listed on Amazon for this book. "This title contains graphic language, consensual BDSM, bondage, intense sensory deprivation, extreme electrical play, enemas, and the use of toys including clamps, canes, plugs, cages, paddles, whips, and floggers." With that said, if these things excite you, then you will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book. And while the sex and exploration ar

After reading SAFEWORD: Davenport, I was hesitant to read the next installment of the continuing tiresome, drama of Dana and Zach. WOW - WOW - WOW! What a difference. The quartet is back and better than ever!

I am happy to say the ghosts of their spouses have finally departed: May they rest in peace. Dana and Zach are working through their issues, identifying them, and realizing all won't be solved overnight, or even in three months time. They agree to a co

The first book in this series Safewords: Davenport was amazing. Yes there is sex and BDSM in the book. However there is more to the book than just that. This book takes a reader through the relationship of a couple that has the alternate lifestyle of BDSM. This book shows that even though this is something different it is not a bad thing to feel or enjoy this with you partner. However it should be with a partner that you trust.

As reviewed on Kinky Book Reviews by Riane:

In Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon, you follow the continuing story of Zach and Dana relationship, including their friendship with Brent and Jacob. We got to meet and fall in love with all of the characters in Safeword: Davenport. This book shows us how they grow and develop a much closer relationship.

While the second part of this duet was entertaining, I nearly threw my kindle across the room when Zach, in order to reclaim Dana...after he rejected her submission and kept information from her, pumped a plug to an excruciating size to prepare her for him. She accepted his torment. Love. Pumped up, he then used her mouth. All part of reclaiming, from Zach rejecting her, she had to suffer, while he inflicted more pain. He asked her to show him how much she wanted to submit to him. Zach told Dana ...more

Okay, let me tell you right off the bat that if you aren't into hardcore BDSM and especially anal use, this is NOT the story for you. If you are into those things or aren't scared to give the book a shot - you will thoroughly enjoy it. You MUST, however, read the previous story; Safewords: Davenport. The story between Zach and Dana started in Safeword: Davenport and continues in this installment and builds.

This is book four is the Safewords series and book two for Dana and Zach. Zach and Dana get deeper in their relationship she is moving into his house and the two have agreed that she can continue to see Jacob. Let me start by saying this book was hot I mean a lot of kinky things in it. She also finds herself falling in love with Jacob as well. Jacob is Brent's full-time Submissive and is also bi-sexual. Brent and Zach are there to watch and supervise but the connection between the two of them is ...more
Enjoyed this one as much as "Safeword Davenport". Having just finished it, I was about to say the first one was kinkier and this one was more about relationship drama, but I realized I mis-remembered where the break between the books was. This was plenty kinky.

The stuffing games with the chain, very hot. And Dana got to try out the fun side of electric play. Well, first Dana, then Dana and Jacob in tandem.

Love how the foursome came together. Their evolving dynamics was a pleasure to witness. A

This was not a satisfying conclusion for me. Safewords Davenport and Chiffon take everything I liked about Safeword Davenport and makes it miserable.
In the first book, I enjoyed Dana and Zach negotiating their power exchange. Discovering and testing their limits. In Chiffon, it got boring. They over-analyze and negotiate their relationship to death. It felt like there were numerous written contracts and agreements constantly being hammered out. I'm sure that is how some "real life" TPE relation

A continuation of Dana and Zach's story, now focusing more on their mutual needs and the building of their relationship than just on Dana's issues as in Book 4. An insightful look at the issues that persist when two people are in love but must still deal with the death of deeply loved spouse and facing the future with a new love. Deeply involved in the BDSM lifestyle, this is filled with that kind of power exchange and those who are offended by that will probably not like this series. But for th ...more

Safewords: Davenport and Chiffon is the latest in the "Safewords" series by Candace Blevins and the second part of the story which began in Safewords: Davenport.

Candace Blevins writes books that are pretty much beyond my comfort zone in terms of BDSM activities - these books are not for the faint of heart, and each book ramped up my discomfort. That being said, I kept reading and enjoying them because her characters, and their relationships, fascinated me, even while their activities totally sqw

Omg. I loved most of the book. I'm not a sadist, masochist, sub or Domme but I did enjoy most if not all of the scenes. Absolutely loved Dana & Jacob dynamic. Life is unexpected and you never know if, when or who you will fall in love with. 1 of the main things I loved was it was 4 ppl trying to figure out how to make this unconventional BDSM relationship work between Dana being submissive to Zach as well as Domme to Jacob when Jacob is also submissive to Brent.

A great continuation to Safeword Davenport. I was glad to see that Jacob and Brent continued to play a prominent part in Dana's life. The story had some twists and turns that I didn't see coming. There were also some very hot scenes. I would still love to read the back-story of Jacob and Brent--how they met and how their relationship developed to where it is now. I definitely look forward to reading more by this author.

So Dana and Zach are back together trying to work out their respective issues. As with Safeword Davenport (read that book first), this is more of a deep BDSM read than love story. It still has that rather clinical feel with details about the scenes and toys used but it still exceedingly well written. It picks up right where the first book ends with Dana having literally let go and found the courage to move on to explore a relationship. But let me warn you, you will squirm and ask yourself - do p ...more

Bleh. I've enjoyed many of Blevins's novels. They're hardcore, and they push me out of my comfort zone. Unfortunately, I didn't like Part II of Dana's story anymore than I liked Part I, and it's all because of the characters.

Dana and Zach are both aggravating and feel so artificial. Jacob's so dull he could be made out of cardboard. Brent, whose interest in Dana remains a mystery to me, is the only halfway interesting character and, naturally, he's seen less often than the others.

Not her best
I enjoyed this story, a continuation from the last, but felt I didn't enjoy it as much as the first. Would give 4.5 rather than 4, just because I did enjoy it as much. I didn't feel the sex scene were as hot as in the first. I did enjoy the fall out between Zach and Dana, and then the coming together. It's also such a loving relationship that Jacob has with all.
The story is very well written, and I found it easy to loose myself within the text. I love all the books I've read so far by this autho

This book was added to my list of my favorites. I loved almost every scene of this book ... wow.
the union of the two pairs interconnected by Dana and Jacob is amazing especially when they are joined by their two doms. in this book is to strengthen, not without setbacks, the relationship between Dana and Zach growth of trust between them and the realization of a TPE relationship, which I think is easy to do.
Well I loved Safeword Davenport so of course I loved this one as well. I'm glad we got a sneak into the "rest of the story" with Dana, Zach, Brent and Jacob. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the femdom aspects of these two books but I'm going to be actively looking for a few more femdom stories for 2013.

Candace Blevins is a master of mixing an emotional story with character growth with some very hot sex. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!

a review of this book will be posted on my blog on January 1, 2015. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. After reading the previous book, which is the only connecting story in this stand alone series, I just had to read this one, and find out what happens to the characters. This ain't your mama's bdsm novel (cough, 50 shades, cough). It is for hardcore bdsm fans.
