This was a quick peek into the evolution of Jonah and Vivienne’s relationship. They’ve weathered some pretty impressive storms, and are now dealing with the minutiae of every day life. How does that impact a relationship such as theirs?
Jonah has made progress but his greatest weakness is his own self-flagellation where Vivienne is concerned. It takes Vivienne a while to make the connection that he has to heal that wound himself, and her job is to support rather than forgive.
Of the two, Vivienne is the most emotionally stabilized, having realized her biological family is a lost cause save her young niece. Her true family is her friends whom she surrounds herself with but even that is in danger and she doesn’t know why. But she’s strong enough to find out.
This is a quick read that touches a little bit on what Jonah and his siblings endured, and how it has affected them differently. We finally meet Rebecca after she has a mishap and calls Jonah, and she was a surprise to say the least. All in all, I would have rather waited for a more fleshed out complete book, but this was appreciated while it lasted.
The incendiary author of Begging for It and Asking for It again plunges readers into the shadowy depths of love, pain, pleasure and peril...
How far is too far?
Finally sure of each other's strength and love, Jonah and Vivienne continue to explore their darkest fantasies together. However, what should be a night of ecstasy takes a dangerous turn, injuring Vivienne. She shrugs off the incident, but Jonah is haunted by it, particularly by the fear that others may believe he abuses her, or even glimpse the truth of their erotic obsession.
Then Jonah receives a call from his younger sister, Rebecca, who's dealing with trouble of her own in South America. When Vivienne travels with him to aid Rebecca, she learns yet more about his tortured history—and Jonah opens up to Vivienne as never before.
Can Vivienne help Jonah cast off the shadows of his past forever?
