Warning: Spoilers and GIFs ahead.

Perhaps once in a lifetime (or a million times in a lifetime if you're BAVR), you will read a book that is EVERYTHING it shouldn't be and still keeps you invested. It will be a hot mess of craziness and frustration, yet you will cherish it, not in spite of its faults but BECAUSE of them. And once you are finished reading and give it 4 stars on Goodreads, you will think, "I can't think of one person I would recommend this to, but fuck it, I REGRET NOTHING."

Aleene, a survivor of sexual abuse, marries a simpleton and begins to... sexually abuse him. O_o

She wants to avoid getting married by... getting married. O_o

Over the span of a few days Aleene finds herself falling in love with her mentally challenged husband, even though he's never said a word to her. (Then again that's most husbands so I may just let that one slide.)

But of course the simple husband is really a French Norman come to spy out the land for William the Bastard. (How lucky that every
