It's 4am. I just finished this book, and I don't even know where to begin. I stayed up all night reading it. I kept trying to put it down, but it wouldn't let me. Lord, what a story. It just kept evolving, the further into the plot I went, the deeper I fell. For a full day, this book was my whole world, now what. The emotions I felt...
Now my sleep deprived mind is going to try to lay some words down about this novel that hopefully make sense and relay the message of it's greatness.

There are so many layers to the storyline, that some could have been removed and it still would have been awesome, but including everything just makes it amazing. We start with Mia. She is an independent modern woman and a secret "freak" in the bedroom, but in the business world, she can't find a man that will go far enough into that lifestyle to satisfy her.From what I've seen—and dated—I just don't feel like most men have anything to offer that I can't do for myself.
She finds herself on a secret website putting in an order for her own rape...This is the dark alleyway of the internet, where you can order drugs, prostitutes, and find illegal porn.
It's 2am and I am lurking on the deep web for a male prostitute to mock-rape me.

Tax pays her a visit, and let me tell ya, the sex and the man are both off the charts hot.
OK, so wow right! From the synopsis and teasers, I thought this was basically the story. Sounds like he's going to turn into a creepy stalker right? But what is this debt deal? Exactly!

The book pops between current and past times. I thought when it was finally revealed, the whole revenge plot, that it would be minor, and everything would fade away. When I learned everything, I cried. I haven't moved past it myself yet even after finishing the story so I totally understand the need for vengeance.I couldn't just dissolve into everyday life. My life is revenge. My life is rage. I had nothing to look forward to.
There was no downtime for me in this book. I was completely captivated the entire read. Whether it was from the sexiness, sadness, anger, desire, love... I felt it all. Tax, Mia, Jude, Rex and Sil all took a piece of my heart, but Silvio and Judith broke it.

There is so much more that I would like to say, but I don't want to ruin the book. Learning as you read is part of the experience with this story. I highly endorse this book. It is definitely at the top of my 2014 list.

I am tempted to add the tag "romance" to this novel, as it is a highly interesting study of the basic premise for a romance novel, where obstacles exist between two characters that hinder them from falling in love and finding a HEA together. There are a huge number of huge obstacles in this novel. Phew! I honestly believe the author put every obstacle she could think of in the paths of the main characters.

The female main character has a strong personality, which is rare in this genre. The male main character has a traumatic past.

The novel explores a number of other themes besides romance: Consensual rape, dub-con rape, nonconsensual rape, murder, violence, justice, revenge, extortion, blackmail, forced pregnancy. Phew again.

What amazes me is how the author tricked me into liking the male main character. I personally find that a rare experience in this type of dub-con/non-con novel. It was brought about slowly and very skilfully done by the novel's emphasis on character building to an effective depth. For some the sections where characters tel us how they feel may be too long, but I thoroughly enjoyed this psychological aspect of the novel.

And while I held my breath a couple of times in fear the author would not be able to keep this train on track, she manages to bring the whole combination of elements and characters and events to a worthy conclusion. Chapeau! ( )
