Perhaps the most disturbing thing about this very disturbing book is the title Let s see we have a romance about a heroine kidnapped and raped by the hero how do we make that look nice I know we ll call it Seduction and maybe no one will notice These same publishers are now putting anorexic women on the cover of romances with fat heroinesIt was a really interesting story I ll give it that The backstory and secondary characterizations are thorough and involved than we usually see in category romance and it was clear that the author recognized herself how truly awful her hero Ben is in the way she describes how he sulks and broods over not getting his own way and completely fails to take responsibility for how much damage he s inflicted I know I was a bit rough with you I m sorry Believe me I didn t mean to be but you made me angry Of course his anger is her fault for not giving in and so forcing him to rape her Then when she s still unreasonably upset over having been raped instead of thrilled he storms off and gets drunk Nowadays he would probably be diagnosed as a narcissistic personality or sociopath this being an old romance he is just warped and bitter because his mommy treated him mean and so she has to forgive himI was very caught up in the story and I can certainly see why some readers might really love its intensity and drama But the ending miserable and repentant though Ben is was somehow not sufficient for me to give retroactive reader consent for his actions The happiest ending I can see for this couple is divorce if she s very lucky her winding up dead at his hands seems the most probable outcome
