Asking For It by Lilah Pace *Review
Posted by brriske
This is who I am. This is what I want. Now I need a man dangerous enough to give it to me.”
Graduate student Vivienne Charles is afraid of her own desires—ashamed to admit that she fantasizes about being taken by force, by a man who will claim her completely and without mercy. When the magnetic, mysterious Jonah Marks learns her secret, he makes an offer that stuns her: they will remain near-strangers to each other, and meet in secret so that he can fulfill her fantasy.
Their arrangement is twisted. The sex is incredible. And—despite their attempts to stay apart—soon their emotions are bound together as tightly as the rope around Vivienne’s wrists. But the secrets in their pasts threaten to turn their affair even darker…
Reader Advisory: Asking for It deals explicitly with fantasies of non-consensual sex. Readers sensitive to portrayals of non-consensual sex should be advised
Jonah and Vivienne’s story is a twisted one, one that can’t be classified as “normal”. When I started reading this book I was truly unsure if I could finish this book. Some of the content was a bit more emotionally overwhelming but once you start really getting into the “meat” of the story you really just find two individuals that have gone through a similar life altering events. Since these two have gone through so much they have learned how to get what they need from each other, but can they continue once all the secrets and all the feelings are revealed. Can they keep up with their crazy twist of love?
I enjoyed this book more then I thought I would, it covers a lot of sensitive topics. The author takes the events and writes about them with such passion and respect. Jonah and Vivienne are amazing characters and I hold such respect for both of them, what they have been through, so strong , so incredibly real! I’m excited to read more about these two very interesting characters, that now hold a special place in my heart!
would rate this book 5 out 5 Fangs!
