This book is very dark and not for everyone. Personally it made the hairs on the back of my neck rise and my fists clench. I’m ok with dark books but prefer them about relationships of the consensual variety, even if starts off manipulative to a degree. If it wasn’t for the last 25% of the book I don’t think I would have considered reading book 2. I was advised by a friend that the brutality from the first part of the book is necessary to understand the main lead’s choices. As of the end of this book it still feels more gratuitous than necessary. I’m going to give the 2nd book a shot and see how it goes.

Sex/kink type: consensual sex doesn’t start until more than half way through the book; subsequent to that standard + oral and anal

Possible triggers: kidnapping, human trafficking, Rape, anal rape, gang rape, physical abuse
