Berkley / September 1, 2015 / $15.00 print, $4.99 digital
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...
With Asking for It, Lilah Pace packed a punch. It wasn’t just the extreme rape fantasy premise or that the fantasy comes to life. The real shock was that for Jonah and Vivienne, it isn’t just fantasy; it was the embodiment and re-enactment of a very real personal hell for them both. Yet in each other, they finally found what they were missing, a partner who could help unlock that deeper part of themselves. And as they set forth boundaries and limits for their games, their world became a taboo paradise.
