Asking for it – Lilah Pace
I´ve seen mentions of this book around the web and when it was chosen as one of the best books of 2015 at the 6 month mark over at Book Riot I decided to pick it up. I have to say I enjoyed it much more than I though I would and read it over the course of a day. The story was intriguing the writing was top notch and the author handled the difficult subject matter with great care. I can´t wait to get my hands on the second book which is out in september of this year.
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…
