About this deal

Meanwhile, here he is, going into this girl's house, forcing himself onto her, justifying it because of the girl being turned on, and then leaving her there lying on the floor curled into herself and crying. Well, that was absolutely terrible :) This book was on my radar because many of my goodreads friends (<33) who had read Her Soul to Take and Her Soul for Revenge seemed to love this one too. I would say that "dark romance" at this point in my reading career, is to hint at some form of sexual trauma and/or assault within the storyline. I imagine the author was trying to spin the assault as kink but both the writing and the author’s understanding of kink are just the worst. People will justify it with the pathetic excuse that it is dark romance, but rape is far from romantic and the author still chose to include those graphic scenes into the book.

I had found the description intriguing, but now that I know it romanticizes rape and glorifies assault I'm out. That's just my opinion and the last time I checked this book still has raving reviews, and was not too poorly affected by my seemingly unpopular opinion. I just started reading this book and I’m to the point of their first intense encounter and he is literally forcing sex on her… i usually love a good story about a man who’d rip out a spine for love but there’s no excuse for the whole raping thing. The worst thing about this book, for me, is how overly corny it is in its attempt to justify itself. The plot is essentially the Zade (H) saving sex trafficked girls and women while hunting down and killing pedos.Carrying something meaningful in my skin is effortless but holding onto something that I could lose-that takes devotion. You're the first person that's ever been annoyed by my not liking a book for my own personal reasons, and I'm sure you won't be the last.

When reading a review, we should also understand that one personal opinion doesn't necessarily reflect on the author, more so the reader and their specific tastes. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. The fact that I've seen people on TikTok say that Zade is their top book BF genuinely concerns me and isn't something I want to think too much about 😭.But, I think building up to the first encounter more would have created more suspense for the reader and allowed us to really feel his obsession and what led to him having to stalk her.
