begging for it

SYNOPSIS

The provocative author of Asking for It once again explores the dark side of erotic obsession, and the secrets that make it as dangerous as it is irresistible.

Some secrets should only be shared in the dark.

Jonah and Vivienne’s erotic bond—living out raw scenarios of captivity and force—began as no-strings sex between strangers who shared the same desires. Now the intimacy between them is turning into love, but it’s a love built on fantasies so extreme that exploring them makes guilt inescapable. But the risks they’re taking are far more dangerous than they’d imagined.

A stalker is terrorizing the city, and one of Jonah’s ex-lovers names him as a potential suspect to the police. Standing by a man under suspicion could cost Vivienne everything. But when Jonah’s stepfather takes advantage of the scandal to seize control of the Marks family fortune, Vivienne is drawn into her lover’s broken family and twisted past. Only then will she learn how dark the truth really is..

“Since when did life start giving us what we deserved?”

We loved the first book in this two book series so were eager to see how it was all going to end up for Jonah and Vivienne. This series is quite emotionally charged and hard to read at times. However, the writing is so incredibly beautiful and vividly expressed that you can’t not keep reading, wanting these two characters to heal themselves as well as each other.

“I don’t want to leave you. I don’t even think I could, unless it’s the only way to keep you safe. Make you whole.”

It’s hard to know who to feel sorry for more but all the way through we couldn’t help but feel that Jonah had the biggest mountain to climb in overcoming an absolutely horrific childhood. We have to say that we didn’t feel that Jonah’s character development was all that apparent in this instalment. He had suffered tremendously and his sexual needs were not fully explored nor delved into all that much. We didn’t feel that he was given the same attention and chance of healing and self-realisation as Vivienne did. This saddened us as we felt so incredibly sorry for him.

‘He always wants to endure his pain alone, I realize. He doesn’t think about protecting himself, only protecting others.’

Relationships are hard to begin with yet when you add the extra emotional baggage of a horrendous past which ties in with sexual depravity there’s no question it will play a huge part in making it that much more difficult. Jonah and Vivienne are suffering still; yet together they have a release albeit it plagued with guilt, remorse and confusion.

‘His eyes are glazed like a man in a trance, and he’s started shaking harder than me. “Silver”, he says. “Silver.”

Vivienne went through the biggest change insofar as realising and overcoming the huge stumbling block evident from how her past plays out in her future; albeit not fully life altering change. She did however experience a setback which in turn turned out to be an eye opening discovery on the whys of her needs and wants.

“You and I, what we have together, it’s more than this. And yet this is a part of us. It always will be.”

Whilst we certainly did enjoy this instalment and fully appreciated where the Author eventually went, we did feel that Jonah was somewhat ignored as a character and that he didn’t get what he needed to heal and feel ‘safe’ in his own skin as well as in his relationship with Vivienne. We also felt that not a lot actually happened development wise in the story and through character growth. Saying that though; there’s no denying that this Author is an incredibly talented and evocative writer! We definitely recommend this series.

“We’re intertwined now, you and I. Our lives aren’t separate.”
