From the author of Carrie’s Story comes the continuing tale of a young woman’s uncompromising sexual adventure. Carrie leaves behind her life with Jonathan, the S/M master who initiated her into a life of slave auctions, training regimes, and human “ponies” preening for dressage competitions. Whisked away to Greece by the demanding gentleman who has chosen her as his own, she learns new, more rigorous methods of sexual pleasure.
And do bear in mind that the books should definitely be read in sequence, beginning with with Carrie’s Story. Safe Word is definitely a sequel, a continuation and amplification of the narrative. Trust me, the whole thing will make a lot more sense if you read it in order.
Carrie’s Story is regarded as one of the finest erotic novels ever written – smart, devastatingly sexy and, at times, shocking, Molly Weatherfield has penned a book that is standing the test of time alongside The Story of O and Justine in this new era of “BDSM romance,” a la 50 Shades of Grey the whips and cuffs are out of the closet and “chateau porn” has given way to mommy porn. Carrie’s Story remains at the head of the class, literally.
Imagine The Story of O starring a Berkeley PhD candidate in comparative literature, who moonlights as a bike messenger, with a penchant for irony, self-analysis and as well as anal pleasures. Set in both San Francisco and the more chateau-friendly, Napa Valley, Weatherfield’s deliciously decadent novel takes you on a sexually explicit journey into a netherworld of slave auctions, training regimes, enticing “ponies,” (people) preening for dressage competitions. Desire runs rampant in this story of uncompromising mastery and irrevocable submission.
