    Compelling part 1 of a 2 part series

    I found this to be a suspenseful and compelling story. I liked both Jonah and Vivienne and the way that they were able to communicate with each other and develop the trust needed to fulfill their fantasies. At times, I found the sex scenes between them distressing - not because of the rough sex (though it was definitely violent), but because of the language that was used. The slut-shaming , harsh, and degrading language was the part of the fantasy that I had difficulty getting behind personally though it obviously worked for both of them. It was a fully consensual meeting on their parts, and the moment the 'scene' was done, Jonah was very solicitous of Vivienne, ensuring that everything that had transpired was okay with her, that she wasn't hurt or traumatized in any way and that he hadn't gone too far. As the story progresses they go from virtual strangers ( necessary to make the fantasy more believable) to something much deeper - a bond tying them together in more ways than either of them expected. They both have some dichotomous characteristics - Jonah as the reserved, quiet and caring man with violent fantasies and Vivienne as the friendly, strong woman who needs to be completely helpless in her sexual relationships to find satisfaction. In fact, her participation in these fantasies with Jonah is a way for her to deal with the rape she experienced as a teenager, making it her choice and not someone else's how she fulfills her sexual needs. But when we find out about Jonah's past and what has drawn him down this path, it's evident that they are going to have a lot more to deal with before they can contemplate a future together. Things are left unresolved at the end of this part of the story. Though I can truthfully say that it wasn't always an enjoyable read for me, it was really well written and an absolute page turner. It won't be on my reread pile, as I found it quite a stressful story to read once, but you can bet I'll be waiting with bells on for part 2 and what will hopefully be a little happiness in the lives of two people who really deserve it. 4 stars.

    dark and disturbing

    I won this book in a giveaway thru Fiction Vixen. First off, there is a warning for this book. Heed it and heed it well, there is no exaggeration to the warning! I have a lot of adjectives I could use to describe this book; dark, disturbing, erotic, romantic. Some people will not like the book due to its content, but I found it fascinating. I think what I like best is the author's ability to describe what Vivienne is feeling at all times. Whether she is talking to her therapist, the hero of the story or her friends and co-workers. If you can overlook some of the disturbing content, I think you will enjoy the story for what it is, I know I did.
