<— TABOO ALERT! And I LOVED this one ’cause it’s loaded in angst and steam and taboo and secrets and OMG I just loved it (—> my review), and now a 3rd is on the way (and soon!!!). Already up for pre-order!
Allison: another book I read that I COULD NOT PUT DOWN was Asking For It by Lilah Pace. Oh. My. Gerd. Taboo, but the reasons behind the heroine’s hangups seem so realistic and make me feel less squeamish about LOVING the book so much. So, so, SO hot. So hot. I highly recommend it!
Amy: Asking For It is REALLY good. As sensitive as the whole topic is (the h wanting that sort of thing) it is actually written in a way that isn’t horrifying and makes you understand the internal struggle she has with her desires.
marina: I felt like “Asking for It” was taboo
Melissa: Her other two books were so good! Can’t wait for this.
About book #1:
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…
