Book Blurb:  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.

About Teresa Mummert:   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.
(This bio is not to be taken seriously under any circumstance.)

Teresa Mummert is an army wife and mother whose passion in life is writing. She is the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novels White Trash Beautiful and Suicide Note. Born in Pennsylvania, she lived a small town life before following her husband's military career to Louisiana and Georgia.

My Review:  Aaahh!  I haven't given out five star ratings much lately.  My most recent have both been Teresa Mummert books!  What does that tell you?  Well, it should tell you that she is one of the most talented authors out there right now!  If you have seen my ratings for books, you know that I don't just hand out five stars.  I tend to hold those for books I cannot put down and that never seem to leave my head!
I can tell you, with the title Safe Word, I expected an erotic novel, which I am not a fan of.  So I was a little scared when I sat down to read this!  My original thoughts were the furthest from the reality of this book.  So, if you are thinking what I thought, know that you are way off base.  Appearances can be deceiving!
While reading this, I was rooting for this couple to make it out together (and alive).  I was blown away by the plot.  It is definitely unique.  So, as I continued through this story, I found myself questioning things... Just little things, trying to put together how every puzzle piece fit together.  Oh my!  The last fourth of the book had my head spinning in a sideways spiral... yes sideways... Why sideways?  Well, it sure wasn't going up or down.  You will see when you read this book.  As always, I am not giving away any of the plot.  Just know that this will be a book that you will see everyone talking about, and you will be missing out if you don't read it for yourself!
