asking for it/begging for it, by lilah pace

ingredients: Drama and suspense. servings: This series deals explicitly with fantasies of non-consensual sex. Readers sensitive to portrayals of non-consensual sex should be advised. preparation: This was a bit of a dark read. Not as dark as some other books I’ve read, but still, dark.
