The annual Mates Leather Festival in
Provincetown is now in full swing. Once a year all the gays
in the area can be out of the closet and openly together to
enjoy and explore their sexuality.
Psionic officer Corey Shaw is called in
by Police Chief Richard Stewart after a male body is found
with definite signs of hard core BDSM both past and at the
time of his death.
Delving into the lifestyle, Corey is
losing himself to deeply hidden wants and desires while his
focus on the murder is becoming unclear as another body is
discovered with the same M.O. Corey must catch the killer
and hold onto his own self before he lets things go too far
and he can never return to the man he loves waiting for him
back in Boston.
Safe Word, a dark and
mid-heavy BDSM murder mystery with a paranormal twist. Our
hero, Corey Shaw has many psychic talents and author Alex
Morgan turns those skills around in a way to make Corey’s
own internal struggle as interesting as catching a killer.
This isn’t a love story per se other than the mention of his
lover Ethan back home. Also, the ending in Safe Word
is quite abrupt. I did however, enjoy the writing style as
well as Corey and wished there had been more at the end.
