Review: Safe Harbor by Tymber Dalton

Safe Harbor

$7.50 eBook

Released: December 2009

Clarisse seeks refuge from her abusive ex-boyfriend on the Dilly Dally, her uncle's old fishing trawler in Tarpon Springs, Florida. She doesn't expect to find Mac and Sully, the Dilly's sexy new owners, on board making love.

They're at first startled by her appearance, then outraged by the injuries her ex inflicted. They insist she stay with them, and with nowhere else to go, Clarisse agrees.

Both men find themselves falling for Clarisse, but she can't bring herself to completely trust Sully, a former cop, like her ex. She's shocked to discover the men aren't just lovers either, but full-time Master and slave in a BDSM relationship. As she learns more about their history and lifestyle, she uncovers her own hidden desires. When danger from her past returns, can Sully and Mac provide Clarisse a Safe Harbor?

Two words come to mind when I think of this book, intense and emotional. In BDSM reads detail is so important, it can make or break a book. Ms. Dalton captured all the aspects with her story line, the characters and BDSM scenes.
I really liked how Sul explained their lifestyle to Clarisse, not pushing but letting her make up her own mind. Mac explained as a slave what he needed and what he received from his Master. The story was written with realism, something that could actually happen.

After what Clarisse went through I was surprised she even had a thought about the lifestyle. Both men were patient with her, as they gained her trust. Even the ever present danger, the reliving of her own nightmares Clarisse started evolving.

Sul handed his slave well, even with the bouts of jealousy that popped up. Each person was fighting something in their past, that’s what made it emotional. The scenes were written peaked more than interest but they will heat you up and make you squirm. The whip play is always intense; I like how Sul had Clarisse help him with Mac.

For anyone in the lifestyle the care that Ms. Dalton put in with detail will be important. Explaining the use of the safe words were important, (how Sul had Mac use his safe word to show Clarisse how they work), the aftercare after the scene. That was real big A+ for me, in any relationship communication is important, but more so in an M/s relationship.
