Romance Triggers: Asking For It by Lilah Pace

There is an upcoming new book called Asking for It by Lilah Pace that is getting so buzz. Why? Because it contains a romance reader trigger - non-consensual sex.

Romance Readers - here is the question? Are we interested in this type of romance? Are romance writers pushing the boundaries more and more, to be the next "50 Shades of Grey" success story? Do we need shock and taboo, to up the ante? No judgement here, and I'm sure I will read this book. I don't believe in censorship, I was raised on Flowers in the Attic and other "taboo" fiction books. I love to be shocked sometimes. But, if a book is marketed and is telling us WARNING - what should we think?

What are you feelings on these types of books? Are you a fan? Do you already read these types of books?

Here is the write up on it (an no cover art for this book available yet)

Preorder from Amazon!

“This is who I am. This is what I want. Now I need a man dangerous enough to give it to me.”

Graduate student Vivienne Charles is afraid of her own desires—ashamed to admit that she fantasizes about being taken by force, by a man who will claim her completely and without mercy. When the magnetic, mysterious Jonah Marks learns her secret, he makes an offer that stuns her: they will remain near-strangers to each other, and meet in secret so that he can fulfill her fantasy.

Their arrangement is twisted. The sex is incredible. And—despite their attempts to stay apart—soon their emotions are bound together as tightly as the rope around Vivienne’s wrists. But the secrets in their pasts threaten to turn their affair even darker...

Reader Advisory: Asking for It deals explicitly with fantasies of non-consensual sex. Readers sensitive to portrayals of non-consensual sex should be advised.
