This book. Is disturbing.

Not in a good way lovelies, NOT IN A GOOD WAY.

I really didn't think I could find a more sexual assault friendly book than hush hush, but Ms. Feehan proved me wrong. Meet, RAPIST FRIENDLY! DUN DUN DUUUUUN!!

Allow me to explain this more thoroughly. First, let me introduce you to our fuckbags cast members:

Rafael El violador de la cruz: Hello, I'm tall dark and handsome. I believe that a woman should stick to a woman's work, and do things that are womanly like pet butterflies, skip in the dangerous rainforests, and tend to puppies. I also think it's perfectly acceptable and romantic for me to premeditate a rape, knock out all other people in the area where the rape is taking place, and use mind control to make my victim lifemate compliant while I rape her. And then allow her to hate herself for being so compliant. Did I also mention that I started her on the near irreversable path of becoming a carpathian. Also known to most of the world as vampires? Aren't I a keeper?



Colby: Hey I'm colby, I run a ranch all by myself because I'm awesome like that(she really was awesome in the beginning). I'm pissed off at the de la cruzes because they want Me and my younger siblings to move to south america, reason I'm woman. I hate rafael because of how chauvinistic he is. I love him because of how sexy he is! I hate him! I love him! I hate myself! Damn you traitorous body for having sexual responses to this man! I hate myself for being brainwashed finding him so attractive! And for not being able to resist his oh-so-sexy abilities of using his psycho rapist powers vampire powers to make me screw him!
Oh I hate myself!"

Clinton Daniels: Hi I'm clinton. I want to marry colby because I think that piece of cheese is so seeeeeeeexxxxyyy. As you can see I'm the bad guy, besides the evil vampire that will inevitably show up in every book.

Plot: Hey I'm the plot! Oh, readers that didn't notice me that's because I'm kinda a ghost. Nonexistant, feehan decided that I wasn't really important enough to have a big part in this book. Just a minor character, I was demoted because of smut rape scenes lingering around, perhaps I'll be there in next book........ :(

the children aren't really important, perhaps I'll edit them in though later.

But what makes this book disturbing isn't the planned kidnapping/human smuggling(don't worry, he wasn't putting her in the slave market. He wants colby for himself. Yeah.......), no it was-since this is rather disturbing I'm putting this in spoiler tags (view spoiler)




that along with the whole stalker thing he has going for him, disturbed me. Epically.

Oh, and it gets worse.

When colby smacks him and screams at him for raping her, he's OFFENDED! How dare she call him breaking and entering, using mind powers to knock out her siblings, and holding her down while he relentlessly raped her their passionate love making rape? HOW. DARE. SHE? What would she call their cross country romantic getaway? Kidnapping? When he went through all the trouble of making sure she can never ever escape? Poor rafael! But don't worry, I have a message for you that will make me feel a lot better about your situation.



Okay, perhaps that only made me feel better.


I really don't think I am ever going to make it through this book.

Would I reccommend this book? Oh gosh no. No. Not unless you're part of prorapist and anti-women's right groups. Or you just feel like tormenting yourself.
