Book Review: Safe Word

Title Safe Word

Author Teresa Mummert

Release Date May 25, 2013

A chance meeting with a stranger can turn your entire world upside down.

When Colton ‘Colt’ Bishop enters a bar in New York City, he has a plan. His job is to find an easy target and take her back to his place for a few days. He is working his way up the crime ladder doing a job he never wanted.

Lily Hilton has it all, but is hiding from a troublesome past. When she enters a bar downtown, and runs into her old high school crush, her entire world is turned upside down. She is determined to make him notice her, but that plan may work better than she expects.

Colton does not hesitate to take Lily home and use her as his new pawn, but their past begins to catch up with them as their secrets unravel and he must decide what is more important to him, protecting Lily or himself.

While waiting on the second book in the White Trash Trilogy to be released, I decided to pick up Safe Word. I've had a pretty positive experience with Teresa Mummert's books before. Unfortunately, I was left disappointed. And it really sucks.

I'm not even sure what happened. The lack of detail in the story was frustrating. Things felt sloppy and didn't make very much sense. The entire book feels incomplete. Other than the flashbacks to high school, you're not given any looks into the characters' pasts (the years between high school and the present are a complete mystery). I'm honestly not sure how this book has gotten so many positive reviews.


2 out of 5 stars
