()()() My B-day read. ()()()4 Fucked-Up Stars!First of all I'd like to quote K.Thomas.from "About the Author".." She(Author) believes there is no topic too taboo to write about and that fiction isn't meant to teach morality. If you haven't developed morals by the time you start reading erotica, it's probably too late. " ****** Amen to that! ******My thought's about the bookFirst off all it is very well written and well researched. I was captivated by the story from the beginning. Not knowing what will happen if anything.So the heroine Emily Vargas did good for herself. Wrote few self-help books and was touring with one of them and stuff like that. Basically Oprah would have been proud of her. Then suddenly after one of her speaking engagements she was taken captive. That's when the real fun begins.'My mind was going down trails I wished it wouldn't. His soul was ugly, but physically, he was beautiful. I could give in to that. I could let that touch me without felling the need to vomit. And I wouldn't be blamed for it. I was the victim here.'I actually was thinking there would be more violence.But despite things that she had to endure in to "please" her captor there was almost none. None that was spilled on paper anyway. But the biggest violation was with her mind. What happened in this book I'd describe as a total mental rape. Stripping persons identity so thoroughly and completely that the person would willingly do unimaginable things. "No ... Please don't leave me. I'll be your whore. I'll be whatever you want, please." .. He turned and smiled at me, the smile of victory. I actually searched for some pictures to spice up my review a bit, but what I've found made me sick.Have you ever wonder how many women all over the word is held captive against their will for sex slavery? All the people that don't have rights to consent or not 'bout anything. Not where they sleep, what they eat and much much worst things.What I'm trying to say is that I'm all up for kinky fuckery or whatever helps you get off, but it has to be consensual. By the end of the book I've gone through a lot a feelings. Anger, pity, horror, disbelieve, hope. And I was clinging on hope the most. It didn't help. So once again I want to remind you that it is not a romance. No knight in shining armor will arrive and save the day. But it's a good book, challenging - but good nonetheless.So please read and enjoy!'What we are - is fucked up and twisted, but it server a need.''His touch was like heroin in my veins, and I was a grateful addict.'
