“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.
Asking For It is definitely out of my comfort zone and the type of
sex depicted in it is totally not my thing. But the characters? The characters
intrigued me beyond belief I HAD to know what was behind the wants they had and
how or if they would ever over come them. Rape is just so traumatic (not that I
could even begin to understand it) and not something I could even try to take
lightly and I was scared going into Asking For it if we hadn't constantly been
in the heroines head it might have ended up being a DNF for me but we know that
while she's enjoying it and wants it she also isn't happy about her enjoyment of
it. Truthfully this book WILL not be for everyone and it it wasn't for all the
other great aspects of it it wouldn't have been for me but finding out the
truths and having to know the outcome kept me hooked and there just wasn't any
possibility of me putting it down.
