** spoiler alert ** TRIGGER WARNING: DISCUSSION OF RAPE AND SEXUAL ABUSE



This book was disgusting rape porn with the moral that you should stay in an abusive situation, because CHOOSING to stay is empowerment!
Right?
Uh.

There is literally a scene where the protagonist goes to a bar INTENDING TO INSTIGATE A RAPE and then is portrayed as ENJOYING IT.

Other rape scenes are portrayed as consensual. One rape scene is portrayed as something "she deserved".

You can't make up this kind of insane, hurtful and wrong garbage.

Vomit, vomit, vomit.

The whole idea was that this sexy young woman was SO liberated and sexual and freeee that she enjoyed abuse, humiliation, torture, and rape. 'Cause you know, that's what makes a woman really irresistible, is her ability to enjoy abuse.

I can't even begin to detail why this book was a steaming pile of dung.
