      4 stars. Full review posted May 25, 2015"I could back you into that alleyway," he whispers. "Just a few feet away. Five steps and we'd be in the dark, where nobody could see you, and nobody could stop me.""I'd scream."Jonah's eyes darken. He likes it when I play along. "I wouldn't let you," he says, as two of his fingers slide up to cover my lips. "I could cover your mouth while I pinned you against the wall. That would leave me one hand free. So I could reach up under that little dress of yours [...]

      4 Stars!!“Asking for It” was a very unique, intriguing, unconventional, taboo read. Since I’m a reader who loves something different I knew this was 'the perfect' read for me, especially since I love taboo reads. Reading some of my friends’ reviews, my expectations for this one were very high. Well, I’m glad to say “Asking for It” lived up to them. It was a thought-provoking, erotic book, gripping from the start to finish and I’m sure some readers will enjoy it as much as I did. [...]

      4.5 StarsYou can have neat, tidy, and safe. You can have tame. Or you can have what you really want. But you can't have both, Vivienne. And I think we both know which one you're going to choose."Thought provoking, evocative, erotic, and unlike anything I've ever read before. I am absolutely blown away by this book. I didn't know quite what to expect when I began reading it, but I never envisioned something like this. Aside from anything else, this book will make you think. It will take every lin [...]

      3.5-4 stars!I remember a friend telling me about this book a few months ago saying it’s exactly the kind of story I’d enjoy and she was mostly right. I’ve always been drawn to darker, unconventional, taboo love stories and this book fit that description exactly. I did have a couple of issues with it, but overall this story is a captivating debut about two complex, dynamic characters with tastefully done erotic scenes. “My fantasies always begin normallybut no matter how explicit and erot [...]

      4.5 stars!WARNING: Some minor spoilers ahead.This book is one of the most—if not the most thought-provoking book I’ve read this year. Even if you end up not loving the book or even if it makes you uncomfortable, I guarantee it’ll still make you think. It’s definitely not for everybody. It deals with a very sensitive subject. But what sets this apart from the dark romance books that it’s in the market right now is that everything that happened is consensual.Vivienne is an art graduate s [...]

      4.5 Stars”It’s your fantasy, and mine. Chances like this don’t come along often – two people twisted in the exact same way.”Lilah Pace’s debut novel had me reading nonstop today. This book was not only well written but was completely consuming and had a truly honest feel. The author clicked so many boxes for me delivering a gripping tale that was so much more than an erotic read. She added secondary characters with ease and mysterious backgrounds for both of the main characters. Ohh [...]

      4 to 4.5 "Unique" Stars! One disadvantage of reading so many books is that nothing seems new, nothing seems original and exciting. It gets very hard to be impressed by things. On the surface, this story seems like any other. Vivienne (our heroine) has a rape fantasy and she can't come without thinking about being forced. Jonah (our sexy, sexy hero) has the exactly same fantasy of forcing women. So they are perfect for each other. They decide to fulfill their fantasy with no strings attached arra [...]

      4.25 do you want to play starsI don’t just fuck youI bare my soul to you.How could you hate and want the same thing? How could you fantasize and fear in the very same breath ? How far would you go to blur the lines between dreams and reality before it no longer exists? For Vivienne it's no game, it's a reality, one she has to face every second of every day. It's not play, it's survival and her chance encounter with Jonah may be the very thing she's been looking for; a dark soul who can give he [...]

      Lilah Pace took a huge risk with this one and you know what, it paid off. Bold and unapologetic, ASKING FOR IT delves deep and explores the juxtaposition of - hard vs. softlying by omission vs. baring your soulperverse fantasies vs. healthy kinkvillan vs. playmatefear vs. arousalHad I known how utterly addictive and thought-provoking this story would turn out to be, I would have picked it up way before now.

      You never really know when your next read will turn out to be a favorite. I think that's the most compelling part for every bookaholic -myself included- who picks up a new book. Aren't we all waiting for a story to sweep us off our feet? And yes, i fell in love with this book, faults and all, utterly and irrevocably. I know its story is not for everyone but it was just perfect for me.Wholesome and yet with a very fitting cliffhanger in the end, along with interesting and unique characters both m [...]

      4.5 Deliciously Dark StarsAsking for It is part of a series. You must read it in order.I will be honest. I didn’t think anything of this book. I knew there were some “warnings”, but I read a lot of dark books. Anyhow I started it and WOW.If you are a dark lover, love taboo and kind of different reads. Asking for It is for you.Did I want to read a book about the Heroine actively seeking to be raped? Yes and oh boy I got what I was looking for.Vivienne is not your typical girl. Yes, she’s [...]

      4.5 STARSThis fantastic read has suspended my book slumpeven if only for the moment. After reading Kulti, I couldn't find anything worth reading. It actually became depressing, until Feifei suggested this. And thank you, Feifei! I loved this book. It was different, dark and atmospheric. As soon as I started I knew I would love it. It was equal parts sensual, exciting and shameful. It made me think, made me wonder and made me feel. I loved the heroine, Vivienne. She was just a normal woman who un [...]

It's the middle of the night, and you're completely alone on a deserted road with no cell phone. A Good Samaritan then pulls over to help you out. He is attractive, yet your main concern is just getting home and being safe. Well Vivienne Charles thinks this way, however, deep down she wants her "rescuer" to take advantage of the situation and have sex with her force. [...]

      3.5 starsAsking for It by Lilah Pace is one of those rare books that are straight up my alley. It deals with rape-play and the dark underbelly of human sexuality and what makes us who we are and what we crave in the bedroom. It's gritty, raw, at times equal measures disturbing and equal measures hot. I love the blend of the physical and the psychological, the pushing of boundaries. As full disclosure, one of my favorite novellas ever is Willing Victim by Cara McKenna, and since then I've been cr [...]

      short review3 stars! I really did enjoy this, although RP ain't really my thing. I definitely want to know what happens with Jonah and Vivienne and will continue reading the series. Not a 4 or 5 because I didn't love it/wouldn't reread itSO I am convinced that Lilah Pace is Sylvia Day. So many similarities.

      “Not all fantasies are things we want in reality.”I’d like to think of myself as a reader with very few boundaries when it comes to picking my next book, only a few things in life triggering emotions I choose not to feel while indulging my mind with its next great escape. So, when I came across this book, my mind tingled from the get-go, yelling at me to dive into this story blindly and see where it would take us. And what an exciting ride this has been! A perfectly written, masterfully as [...]

      ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review[image error]Asking For It by Lilah Pace was unlike any book that I have read. Consuming, hypnotic, thought-provoking, erotic, sensual and a slow burn emotional heart-tugging read that will push the boundaries. It was such a mind-blowing read that had me craving, wanting, and needing more. This book dealt with a dark, raw sexual matter that Ms. Pace eloquently and beautiful written. The fantasy to be raped. Though this book might not be a [...]

      4 Dark Fantasy Stars!"I can do more than fuck you. I can scare you a little. Just a little. Enough to make it what you really want."Seems like this book made some pretty huge waves. As soon as I heard about it, I knew I needed to read it immediately. And with a blurb like that, who could resist?! Well, I have to say, for the most part, the hype is well-deserved. I'm always drawn to the darker, taboo stories, with lots of edge. The trouble with the sub-genre nowadays is that it is filled with a b [...]

      3.5 ★'s Rape's a fantasy that brings two broken people together. It pulls them deep into some type of a relationship that they are desperately trying to figure out. But will it be strong enough to keep them together? So, I will admit that I was drawn to this book because of the rape fantasies and the way the couple got together. I'm not really big into violence or actually rape but I have definitely read much more intense books than thisd I think I was a little disappointed because of it. Vivi [...]

      Calling it quits at 56%. I'm sad to say I skimmed through most of the book up to this point. I might of liked it better if I could of gotten out of Vivienne's head and into Jonah's. I don't know. I can't seem to make myself care to find out any more about either of them any longer. I really didn't like Vivienne from the beginning. Ugh! I'm so disappointed because I was really wanting to read this one and waited for book 2 to come out before I started this one. Oh welloff to something else now.

Potential readers should be aware of the intensity of these scenes, and those who find such depictions triggering or traumatic are advised not to read”First things first Do not take the warning lightly.

      Don't do it gorgeous, never follow urges unless sexual xoOh god, no. These words didn't come out from my mother's mouth (I wish she was that groovy though!) but from a very VERY naughty *mouths* and kinky friend of mine. It made me smile when she said it to me and still does.Reading this book made me remember it again. Sexual urges, the author gave a whole different meaning to it. As a matter of fact, lots of references that've been used here that I don't think I can use them the same way again. [...]

      Ladies And Gentlemen, I am pleased to announce that this is the book that has gained my first ever five star review.This book absolutely blew me out of the water. Honestly, I've been having so much trouble putting my thoughts into words about this, because I don't feel that anything I write can accurately portray the beauty and depth that this book contains.In simple terms, this is an erotic novel. But to describe it as such really does it a disservice, because it is so much more than that. It i [...]

      Advertencia: Esta novela erótica No es para cualquiera. No sólo por cuestiones de edad (aunque podría afirmar, si acaso me preguntaran, que pueden considerarla como sólo apta para mayores de 21 años) sino porque las escenas de sexo, si bien son totalmente consensuadas, pueden llegar a resultar chocantes o, como mínimo, incómodas o, incluso, hasta llegar a asquear a aquellos lectores que no estén al tanto de los temas que se tratan aquí, ¡tengan la edad que tengan!. (por favor, lean con [...]

      Eine etwas andere Geschichte die bestimmt nichts für jeden ist. Nicht umsonst steht vorne eine Leserwarnung drin. Nichtsdestotrotz hat mich das Buch wirklich begeistert und ich muss mir unbedingt den zweiten Teil zulegen <3

    30. La-Lionne on said:

      The story was okay, the writing was good, but there was thrown way to many issues to deal with at the main characters. Although the subject matter is disturbing, as you read the book, you relize that everything is sane (this bit is still up for discussion), safe and consensual. Which was a good thing, it didn't make characters to seem completely off their rockers.So, it was an okay read, but for the life of me, I can't give it more than 3 stars, because I've read almost identical story before, w [...]
