MY REVIEW

Asking for More by Lilah Pace
Jonah & Vivienne Continued…
EH, IT’S SHORT AND OK. NOTHING NEW THOUGH
3.5 STARS

So, this is just a little novella that covers about the span of a week in the trials and tribulations of Jonah and Vivienne. You don’t really discover too much more than you already knew, but you do get to explore Jonah’s sister a little bit.

As far as Jonah and Viv go, they are still up to their “play” frolics and still have a fascination with that taboo subject! Although Viv get’s hurt AFTER one of their “play” sessions, whiney Jonah seems to get hung up on it a little too long especially since it was not even close to being his fault, but oh well! I think he’s more fucked up than we really know!

Viv is still a very carefree, happy-go-lucky kind of gal and I appreciate that about her. I mean if we had two head cases to deal with I think I might go mental. She sticks pretty close to Jonah, but in my opinion, not for herself, but for him. He seems to need that and her to stay on the right path.

Now Rebecca , Jonah’s sister is pretty damn cool. She lives in Central America by herself and doing fairly well. She’s spunky, witty, and about as open as Jonah… lol! I can’t help but wonder if there might be a longer story there. We’ll see!

So, it’s short, it’s fast, and it’s not really anything new besides more on the sister. The pacing is good, the storyline predictable, and the dialogue somewhat natural. I liked it, but did not love it!

★✩★NEW RELEASE & REVIEW: Begging For it by Lilah Pace★✩★

begging for it cover

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…

★ª”˜¨¨MY REVIEW¨¨˜”ª★

Begging for It by Lilah Pace
Jonah & Vivienne continued…
GOT STRANGER, BUT GOT MORE SATISFYING

Ok so this one is better (in my opinion) than the first installment. It’s grittier and seems to have more substance in it. I actually liked this one. Not that I hated the first one, I just could not connect with the characters enough to feel that it had an impact on me.

Jonah is so much more alpha in this one. In Asking For It, he seemed more whiney and grumpy… now he’s stepping up to the plate and exerting his alphaness! He’s in the middle of a shit storm with his Step Father and the media regarding his stock in his Father’s company and his reputation and whether or not he’s the Campus rapist everyone is talking about. I guess I can’t fault him for being a tad bit grumpy, but holy hell… snap outta it man… Vivienne needs you!

Vivienne also blossomed in this one. She became more brave, more demanding, and more truthful. She’s putting more of herself and her past out there for Jonah to see and… well… for the world to see. Part of me still feels she’s kind of dense, but I guess she’ll pass for now. She did grow this gigantic back bone near the end of the story that simply amazed me! Whaaa Hoooo!!!

The supporting character cast is what it is… I like some, I hated some… let’s just say Vivienne’s side of friends a family were just ok… the friends were pretty cool, but that stupid ass sister, Chloe was as dumb as a box of rocks and the mother must eat a bowl of stupid for breakfast everyday! Jonah’s side of the family, whoa! Carter, the Step Father = EVIL! The man tramatizes his children/step children and still tries to keep it up in adulthood. Now Maddox the brother… holy hotness and wow is that man smart and rich!!

So, all in all I enjoyed this installment more than I did it’s predecessor. It seemed to have more heart, more connection to the characters, and more grit! The pacing was pretty good… mostly even keel! The writing style was effortless to read and the subject matter was just the right amount of darkness!

23398817

“This is who I am. This is what I want. Now I need a man dangerous enough to give it to me.”

Graduate student Vivienne Charles is afraid of her own desires—ashamed to admit that she fantasizes about being taken by force, by a man who will claim her completely and without mercy. When the magnetic, mysterious Jonah Marks learns her secret, he makes an offer that stuns her: they will remain near-strangers to each other, and meet in secret so that he can fulfill her fantasy.

Their arrangement is twisted. The sex is incredible. And—despite their attempts to stay apart—soon their emotions are bound together as tightly as the rope around Vivienne’s wrists. But the secrets in their pasts threaten to turn their affair even darker…

Reader Advisory: Asking for It deals explicitly with fantasies of non-consensual sex. Readers sensitive to portrayals of non-consensual sex should be advised.

Asking for It by Lilah Pace
Jonah and Vivienne
STRANGE, YET SATIFYING

So this book is based on taboo issues. If you can’t handle rape and/or violence then this book might not be for you. It deals with some very dark subject matter, but also can be quite humorous. I’m looking forward to finishing the story of Jonah and Vivienne in the next installment, Begging For It.

Jonah is very calm and mysterious and keeps to himself most days and nights. When he overhears a conversation between Vivienne and her ex boyfriend he’s immediately intrigued and wants to know more about the woman who shares his fantasy. I do believe that there’s more to Jonah than meets the eye and I’m hoping to find more out about him in the next installment. He comes from wealth however does not associate with his family. He is a professor in earth science and studies volcanoes, but that is just a tiny bit of who he is. I do like him but found it hard to connect with him. He did not swoon me

Vivienne struck me as an intelligent woman at first, but when I read how she related to her family she just seemed to lose it for me. She more or less turned into a doormat for her Sister and Mother. Although her fantasy is pretty fucked up, I actually found it incredibly intriguing and have thought about it myself, however I do not have a past like her and feel that she needs way more therapy then she’s getting. I liked her but did not love her.

The supporting character cast in this story is, okay. I liked Vivienne’s friends and the drama that they brought to the story. Her family were the ones who actually made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I just can’t see family treating family the way they did. It broke my heart. I mean… when you tell your girls something, aren’t they suppose to believe you, support you, and go to bat for you? Not those two! Bitches!

The book subject matter is not too dark, but not too light-hearted either. The characters were somewhat relatable but I still seemed to struggle to connect to them. The writing style was, eh, ok. I felt at times like it took a little too long to get to the point. The pacing was ok, definitely not fast paced. I liked this book, but it didn’t wooo me! I felt that there wasn’t enough tension leading up to the climax. Onto book #2, Begging For It.

3.5 Stars
