ARC Review: Asking for It by Lilah Pace

Vivienne and Jonah are a match made in heaven, but for a completely taboo reason: they share the same rape role play fantasies. If you are thinking to yourself, Gee that's fucked up! well, you are right. However, this book was so well written you won't be able to put it down. Asking for It is a fascinating, well researched, hot, and disturbing erotica. I loved it!

Vivienne has a strained relationship with her family, but is in love with her little niece and keeps in just enough contact to keep that relationship going. She has a fantastic therapist and has worked through a lot of issues, but her romantic life has suffered because of her need to be forced during sex. Her last boyfriend couldn't handle treating her that way in the bedroom and when he drunkenly rehashes the private details of their relationship at a party, Jonah approaches Vivienne with a proposition.  Despite the fact that Jonah is a man of few words, he makes Vivienne's fantasies come true in vivid color. Their chemistry and careful but abandon free scenes are breathtaking and exciting. To be the answer to another person's fantasies is such a perfect way is enviable. When their games stir up more personalized feelings for Vivienne, she realizes she and Jonah need to figure out if their role playing games can combine with a traditional relationship, or if they even want to do that.

Jonah was a rock. While it seems strange to lust after a man who has a fantasy of forcing a woman to have sex, we get to know Jonah in a way that just makes it okay, in fact, he is just all around hot. He makes sure that Vivienne is safe at all times and he cares. Even as a man of few words and sometimes terrible communication, he still manages to make Vivienne and us feel good about him. I can't say enough about how much this book struck such a chord with me, but it was fantastic. Luckily for me, the story continues in Begging for It, slated for the fall.
