For the past couple years Laurel’s been coasting, hiding in the backseat while her life drifts off course. Then one summer afternoon a tall, built bruiser named Flynn strides in and steers her straight into an infatuation she never saw coming.

Flynn introduces Laurel to things she’s never imagined—to the violent but exciting realm of the underground boxing circuit, to rough...more

Our heroine, Laurel White, sees a man abusing his girlfriend in the street when Michael Flynn comes to her rescue. He intimidates the mean boyfriend. Laurel is rather impressed by Flynn's deed and is running after him and offers him lunch. She is kind of outspoken and expresses an interest in him. There seems to be something about...more

***FOUR BOURNING STARS***




Oh yeah, ladies, you were f@cking right, this book was VERY HOT!

Laurel is not your typical heroine. I mean, I was kinda shocked at the beginning because when she met Flynn, she was the one asking him out. Ok, ok, I know things have changed but NO WAY I’m asking a guy out. PERIOD.

”You asking me out?”
You’ll never see him again in your life if he turns you down. Just say yes.


So he tells her to meet him in a place she doesn’t know but she decides to go...more

Ok, so I've heard a lot of people have been put off reading this book due to the title and synopsis of the book, and in fact I myself was initially put off as I am highly sensitive to reading books where rape is a part of the story line. However a very good friend of mine assured me that this book would be good for me so let me start my review by saying to all of you who might grimace at what this book might infer, the key word here is 'willing' .

Oh sweet mother of orgasms! I had a very close and passionate relationship with my Kindle while reading this book

If you've already met Flynn, you'll know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.

And if you have yet to meet him?

The man is lethal to your ovaries. I'm not even slightly exaggerating here. The description of Flynn alone got me all hot and bothered

OMG. I'm annoyed. You have an author that can clearly write, characters that are terrific, and you put the story in a short story? So. Unfair.

Seriously, I loved the characters (ok, how can you not adore Flynn) and I loved the story and I want more. Get rid of the title, the cover, and add about 200 pages because the writing and the story deserve a lot more page time.



This is a 5 star story stuck in a 3 star package.

"Fall in love with me." Horror slapped her hand in the face as the words tumbled out of her subconsciousness in the air between them.
"I will," he said, still panting, still lost in the fucking.
"I didn't' mean that."
He laughed, sounding exasperated. "Fine. But you keep treating me the way you have been, and I will. Whether you like it or not." He groaned. "But I won't say it in the middle of getting my brains fucked out, so relax."

I bought this book for two reasons:

1. It's set in Boston and written by a local.
2. The characters act out rape fantasies.

It met my expectations completely on both accounts. Boston was a living, breathing character and the rape scenes were deliciously dark and satisfying.

Laurel White is nearly thirty but she's spinning her wheels working as a waitress at a tourist trap. She hasn't been able to make a relationship work long-term and she's stuck living with two roommates in a small apartment in the...more

★★★★1/2! Quick and sexy novella with a memorable & commanding hero & a heroine in need of exploring the rougher side of sex.

“I’m a selfish prick, and I want to be the greatest f~ck of your life and ruin you for every man who comes after me. But I’m not a mind reader, so I need some help.”


This novella starts off as a story about rough sex and role play between two consenting adults who met by chance. But story grows into following the friendship that ensues and sweet budding romance.

When Laurel White and Michael Flynn meet, Laurel immediately feels this pull towards Flynn. There is something about this guy. Laurel does something she rarely ever does, she asks him out. He says he’s not her type. She doesn’t want to take no for an answer. Flynn invites Lauren to an underground club on a Saturday night, he thinks after she finds out more about him, she will change her mind. Laurel discovers a lot about Flynn that night... one thing is that he is an fighte...more

Flynn, I love everything that comes out of your MOUTH!!!!!

"I like fighting, and I like f*cking. I don't care much for thinking."



I LOVE Flynn's dirty mouth!!!!!

They meet by accident and immediately Laurel is drawn to him.

"She wanted him more violently than anything she could recall, as though the need in her were blinding pain and the only thing that could take it away was Flynn."

Then they basically decide....



This isn't a sweet and sappy love story though, it's kinky. Flynn isn't a missionary-va...more

Don't be surprised if Flynn will make you go like this:


my song for this book:One More Night - Maroon 5 the lyrics reminds me of Laurel wanting 'one more night' with Flynn:)
But baby there you go again,
there you go again making me love you
Baby I stopped using my head,
using my head let it all go
Now you're stuck on my body,
on body like a tattoo
And now I'm feeling stupid,
feeling stupid crawling back to you
So I cross my heart and I hope to die
That I'll only stay with you one more night

The title and blurb may turn people off and perhaps scare people off. But I do think the title and the blurb are misleading. I will tell you what this book is not – it is not a BDSM book. There are not rape scenes and there is no violent sex. What there is (amazingly) is very good character development, a slow building relationship, and some hot sex scenes that push the boundaries of some people's comfort level. In a very y...more

I wasn’t quite sure how this was going to fair with me when I first started it, but I have to say it wasn’t as harsh as I expected it to be. Although some of the sex scenes are a bit “gruff”, I would not consider them to be brutal in any respect. I’ve read much worse where the characters are more demanding of one another. The title and the book description are far worse than the reality of the book itself.

I adored Flynn, he was like a giant marshmallow with an edge, and that edge only reared its...more

4-4 1/2 stars Loved this one and devoured it in one sitting. I was not put off by the rough sex, it was more dirty talk than pain and it worked for me. Loved the characters, especially Flynn-very opposites attract (at least at the beginning). He was rough around the edges, but had a tender heart. My only regret was that I wish it was longer. I would have like to have seen more time of them together once they committed. This was a first read from me by this author, but I will definitely look for...more

5 Defying Society, Straight Forward, Sexually Satisfying Stars * * * * *

Willing Victim was mentioned in another review by Baba.

Because I had no knowledge of this book, I read the blurb and reviews and decided to experience it for myself. As you can see from the 5 stars given, I am glad that I did.

The set up for this book at first glance is deceivingly simple:

We meet Laurel, a gal living life in flux. She’s from Providence, studied to be an engineer yet is working as a waitress in Boston due to...more
Awilk -never sleeps-
I was looking for a sexy read, and this story delivered in spades. I think the blurb and name are a little misleading, as nothing that I read was terribly upsetting. That may be because of other things I have read and became desensitised, that for me the sex was a bit rough, but it seemed to be mainly the sex talk that was edgier then normal.

The story had two great characters, was really fast paced and I loved it. I feel it could have easily been a five star read had it been full length. I wante...more

Update May, 2013:
Right smack in the middle of reading the new Cara McKenna, After Hours, I was overcome by a burning desire to re-visit Flynn and Laurel.
Holy Smokes!
Its as good as I remember.
Maybe better.


Original Review from February, 2012:
This book was a perfect reading experience.
Satisfying in dozens of ways.
I became lost to it.
It now owns me.

18 plus review (erotica).

HATE this cover. It's UGLY and doesn't even match the couple's description.

Really liked the book. It's much, much tamer than the summary reads. There's no hardcore rape fantasies or heavy BDSM like you might think by reading the blurb. It's just about a woman who chooses to let a man have his way, so she gives up control (only in the bedroom). If anything, the dom/sub thing is not happening here because she has her moments where she's in control too. I wouldn't call it s...more

Just what I needed for St. Patrick's Day - a good looking bruiser from Southie with his buff body and tough exterior. It was a fairly quick read for me. Sex was hot. Liked the heroine too. As with a lot of books I read, would have liked an epilogue where we find out where they are further down the road. Of course, for me, they were still together with the white picket fence etc. etc. etc.. Sorry I was too impatient to wait for the Buddy Read/Re-read!

full review:

4.5 stars.

This was so incredibly sweet and ticked all the damn boxes for me.

I think Willing Victim really should have a different title. The title makes the book out to be scarier than what it is and most likely puts people off. Or maybe I'm just a little bit sick in the head and think that rough sexplay is not only okay but freaking hot.

There's a warning at the beginning of this story that lets people know that if they're delicate about things such as simulated rape, they may not...more

4.5 STARS!

I devoured Willing Victim in about two hours last night. I could not put it down. I was immediately intrigued by the hero, and have come to adore everything about him. His characterization was brilliant--complicated and compelling, dark but kind, likeable and sexy as all hell. The sex scenes were off the chart erotic, and the whole time I felt like Laurel in the first scene she watched: mesmerized and wishing it was me! The only reason I'm hedging on a full 5 stars was because I was a...more
