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…
5 Sexy and Edgy Stars!!
“Even the best of us isn’t purely good. And even the worst of us isn’t purely evil.”
This book is pure PERFECTION. My thought when finishing was, “Now what do I read?!” This is one of my top favorite series EVER. I am truly obsessed with this author and this story. Jonah and Vivienne are incredibly written characters, filled with depth and raw emotion. This is a very adult story, dealing with very adult subjects. With that said, these book are among the most highly erotic stories I have ever read.
This series is not for everyone, but if you like sexy, edgy, mature stories, then definitely give these books a try. Lilah Pace’s writing captivated me and drew me into Jonah and Vivienne’s story like very few authors can do. While the subject may seem very taboo, I found these books to be as much an exploration of women’s sexuality as they are “forbidden” erotic romance. These stories take you on an emotional journey that is sensual, enthralling and addictive, to say the least.
BEGGING FOR IT is the conclusion to the series and picks up right where the first book ended. They must be read in order. These two characters are absolutely unforgettable, and I could not really fathom how they were going to make their very unorthodox relationship work. Jonah struggles with his own seemingly-insurmountable dark fantasies, while Vivienne also struggles to come to terms with her own deep-seated fears, as well as her very dysfunctional family. I literally raced through this book, fearful that the author was not going to give these two perfectly damaged souls the conclusion they were worthy of. I felt tremendous empathy for both of these characters and was deeply satisfied with the fantastic conclusion to their stories. I can’t say enough about these books. They are thought-provoking, emotional and incredibly readable.
“We don’t get better; we don’t fix everything that’s broken. We just learn how to work around the broken bits. How to do the best we can with what we have, and who we are.”
I am completely OBSESSED with this author and cannot wait for whatever books she might have planned for the future. I hope there are more books under the name Lilah Pace – I will read anything she writes!
