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.

Reader Beware: There are situations in this book that could trigger persons who are survivors of physical and sexual violence.
“I’m ashamed of what I want. I want it anyway.”
Begging For It is the conclusion to Vivienne and Jonah’s explosive story that started with book one, Asking For It. Lilah Pace challenges every assumption society puts on how victims of rape should cope with and react to surviving such a violent act. The truth of it is, there is no one right or wrong answer. Sometimes, things get twisted and the thing that makes a person feel powerful again is wanting the exact thing that made you feel powerless. Pace takes you to that place and pushes the limits.
“My therapist says totally normal, mentally healthy people are as fictional as the unicorn. We’re all bent. Just in different ways.”
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this series, Pace has a beautiful way of showing the depths of what someone will sacrifice in the name of love. Family bonds that run deep despite the evil survived. Family that cuts you to the quick and turns their back when you need them most. There are so many things that this series encompasses, deeply emotional and beautifully tragic.
“There’s a bleak symmetry to this, I realize. A kind of poetry. Once we believed we shared nothing but a sexual fetish. Now that fetish is the only thing keeping us apart. It is beautiful to be so tied to someone. It’s terrible to know that’s not the only way you’re bound.”
Vivienne and Jonah gut me. I desperately wanted them to work through and overcome everything that kept them apart. The ghosts that haunted them, while different, were just as destructive. The past is on a collision course to the present and will forever change the future.
“We’re intertwined now, you and I. Our lives aren’t separate.”
Would you Beg For It even if it were the thing that could destroy everything you hold dear? Can love conquer all?
“Freedom is what you do with what’s been done to you.”
This series is a must read for anyone that likes to step outside of their comfort zones. A darkly erotic tale of survival, healing, and the power of love.
