    A glorious trainwreck of the old skool variety that really shook everyone up when it came out in 2011 SC set it in 1975, but as Boogenhagen points out her review, the hero grovel was not standard for the 1970 s.Anyway, this one has it all a virgin heroine exploited by her gambler father A revenge filled hero who buys the heroine because she supposedly caused his nephew to lose a lot of money By the e

    3.5 starsSara Craven pens a romance that alternates between sheer fun for its 70s pop culture references and angst for its revenge by sexual enslavement plotline To make her narrative eveninteresting, the author serves it in an amalgamation of the Persephone myth, Charlotte Bronte s Jane Eyre, and the vintage romance this one is set in 1975, which also happens to be the same year the author started wri

    If non consent scenarios are a trigger for you, I would advise staying away from this one If viewed in aserious light, this would be highly disturbing If, however, you re willing to read this sort of thing and able to put on your crack colored glasses, this was truly one crazy ride withtropes than I can count I can t believe it was written in 2010, it definitely has an old school feel to it There was even a Go

    Too bad the rating list doesn t allow for negative stars Rated it a 1 as that s as low as it goes Horrible, horrible book Offensive How are kidnapping, rape, and child neglect romantic Does HQ even READ what it publishes Vasso, the male character, doesn t deserve happily ever after , he belongs in prison Does setting the book in 1975 somehow make the things okay Oh, and even better he tells her that once she sta
