Beg me…there had been a time when those words made her burn with desire. But now, there was only fear.
Once, Tania Sinclair’s life was almost perfect…oh, it had its ups and downs but she was happily married to a guy that adored her, one who had no problem indulging every kinky fantasy she ever had. But a couple of tragedies later, she’s barely holding it together. A car accident took away her husband, and an attack from somebody she should have been able to trust has shaken not only her confidence, but it’s also stripped away her fantasies and even made it painful to look back on her memories of her husband without fear.
Two years after her attack, Tania is determined to take her life back and the first step is taking back herself…her fantasies, her dreams, her memories. There’s only one person she can trust to do it, too. One person she wants enough…Drake Bennett, her husband’s best friend.
Falling for your best friend’s wife—never smart. Drake’s watched Tania quietly for years, watched her…wanted her, knowing he’d never have her. First, she was taken. And then, that night two years ago—a night that still scars her, a night that’s left bruises on her that still haven’t healed. He does what he can, though, because he loves her too much not to. He’s her friend, there when she needs him.
And now she needs him. She’s asked him for a favor…one that just about blows his mind…
When I first read a review about this book over at Smexy Books, I was intrigued on how an author was going to write about such a touchy subject. Most authors won’t even cross into the “rape” fantasies because they are considered taboo. Luckily, one of my favorite authors was willing to not only write about it, but blow my expectations out of the water!
Almost every erotic book I have read includes some sort of fantasy or role play during the sex act. What I found interesting in this book is the fantasy of being raped but in a consenting and pleasurable role play. Most people would shy away from this, myself included. The way the author portrays it in the book though, it is focused more on the aftermath than the actual rape itself. Yes, Tania loved playing out these fantasies with her loving and devoted husband, but that changed once someone takes the control away and forces himself on her after her husband dies in an accident. When Tania decides to take back her life though, she turns to the one person she trusts the most. She asks her husbands best friend Drake to help her work through it.
Ah, Drake. He has got to be one of my favorite Hero’s in a story. He has the sex appeal, the caring and understanding mind, the ability to express his thoughts instead of holding them, and a Superman tattoo to seal the deal! Drake has always had a thing for Tania. He is willing to help her take back her life, but in the process he falls even deeper in love with her. A true Hero that not only saves the girl, but captures her heart at the same time. *sigh*
While I agree that this book is not for everyone, if you do decide to venture out and expand your reading base of erotic romance, then this one will be the one. I am glad I gave it a chance and I fell in love with Drake and Tania. The story was hot, steamy and sexy with just the right amount of suspense, heartbreak and angst that kept it balanced. Plus, Drake can be my Superman anytime!
