Begging for It by Lilah Pace
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…
Vivienne and Jonah are back. Their limits and boundaries are tested in this installment during their “play” scenes. Their morals and decisions are tested by outsiders’ allegations. Jonah feels forced to make a play and Vivienne feels pressured to perform. The acceptance that Vivienne welcomes is her breathe of fresh air: no ever gets fully better. The support Jonah and Vivienne provide for one another along with the support (given and received) from their friends and Jonah’s siblings helped make this installment the success it was for me, as a reader. Jonah and Vivienne’s pasts are secrets they’ve kept hidden and being shameful of it has not helped them move forward. The support necessary proves that what they’re working through is not a sole burden, but one others can help them with. Begging for It can imply many thinks, but I take from this novel that what Jonah and Vivienne were “begging for” is the strength…and that goal, they achieved!! Give this a try and find your next book crush!! Rating: 4.5 stars
