Tour Stop: Review/Giveaway ~ SAFE WORD by Teresa Mummert

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.

Review ~ 5 Stars
I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one and it totally exceeded by expectations. It was gritty and raw and I absolutely loved it. Did I mention the sex scenes were out of this world? Oh yeah, HOT!! Not your typical love story by any stretch of the imagination but was still beautiful none the less. I liked how the characters were connected from the past and brought back together in such a twisted way in the present. Colton was not a sweet and loving hero. He was a hardened man due to his past and he had such an edginess to him that I wasn't sure where the author was going with his character. Lily was not all flowers and sunshine either which just added to the "WTH" factor. By the end of the book all of the pieces come together nicely and you are left with one hell of a story.

I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney's Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn't resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I'd like to tell you a story.
