first scene between the main characters, Carter and Zoey, is than just uncomfortable It s sick, twisted, and fucked up on a level I ve never seen in a book about high school students In fact, the entire book is I m not going to lie or sugarcoat this If you have ever read a book and disliked it, because you thought the hero was abusive or the couple s relationship was toxic, back away slow Holy fucking shit That s what I thought as I read the beginning of Untouchable by Sam Mariano The first scene between the main characters, Carter and Zoey, is than just uncomfortable It s sick, twisted, and fucked up on a level I ve never seen in a book about high school students In fact, the entire book is I m not going to lie or sugarcoat this If you have ever read a book and disliked it, because you thought the hero was abusive or the couple s relationship was toxic, back away slowly now No Fuck that Run Run away and never look back I m serious Don t even bother picking up this book You will hate it I think anyone that reads this and wants to enjoy it has to be extremely curious, open minded, and or love dark, fucked up relationships The purpose of this review is not to scare every reader away Normally, I don t do much warning in reviews at all I just feel like this one needs it though It s better to find out if a book is going to be a huge bust for you before you dive into if you can help it It s also better for the author Basically, this story has the potential to piss a lot of people off That s just a fact The author knew that when she wrote it She has a warning in the beginning of the book itself, so I don t feel bad expressing this now Now that we ve got that out of the way, let s get into my thoughts on this one I ve read a lot of Sam Mariano s previous work It s clear she loves her asshole alpha heroes I love them, too It s probably a big part of why I ve enjoyed all of her books in the past She also has a knack for writing characters that you can both love and hate at the same time I ve never seen an author do this the way she does She s kind of fucking brilliant in that way actually However, when I started reading this book, I didn t think she could get me to read past chapter 2 What Carter does to Zoey is absolutely disgusting and flat out unforgivable There s no two ways about it I whole heartedly believe there was nothing Sam could do to completely redeem him to me That s the thing about her though She almost never completely redeems her characters at least the ones I ve read about It s that simple What she does is finds heroines that are perfect for them just the way they are, and that s exaclty what she did here Not only did I read past chapter 2, I read almost the whole damn book in one night It s over 500 pages Her writing style sucked me in completely The interactions between the characters are just so interesting that I couldn t stop reading I had to know where the author was going to take the story after all of the horrible shit that happened between them in the beginning of the book Obviously, I knew they were going to probably end up together I mean, this is romance after all Exactly how the fuck that was going to happen was what kept me intrigued Both characters infuriated me time and time again, but after a while, no matter how fucked up and wrong it was.I wanted them to end up together That being said, I wish Carter would have been sorry for what he did Hell, I wish Zoey would have lit his house on fire with him in it instead of starting a relationship, but neither one of those things happened Thankfully, Sam found another way for things to end that left me feeling satisfied In the end, Zoey and Carter are perfect for one another She is just strong enough and crazy enough to challenge him, keep his interest, and deal with his emotional issues He is morally challenged, emotionally scarred, and messed up enough mentally to peak her academic interest and tug at her heart strings On top of that, they are sexually compatible in every way Their intense chemistry made for some scorching hot sex scenes Overall, it s a match made in crazy town, but by the end, I was cool with it Both parties understood what they were getting into and were truly happy Bottomline, I enjoyed this book despite the fact that I think Zoey is insane for forgiving him and attempting any type of relationship academic or otherwise In real life, I would never be okay with this type of relationship, but lucky for me, this is fiction One of the things I love about fiction is that it has different rules than we do in the real world Not every story has to have a moral or an inspirational message Some stories are just for fun, to make you think, to explore unique situations and complicated characters, or to make your panties wet from laughing or because it s hot af This is one of those books, and I enjoyed reading it I recommend this to readers of dark and extremely unconventional romance with damaged characters and anyone that isn t concerned about my warning, the author s warning, or warnings in general ARC generously provided by the author for an honest review flag 143 likesLike see review View

5% Yes, the warning does a good job of preparing the reader and making them understand that this is not a typical angsty high school romance It s dark but not in the usual sense Yes, the author does an incredible job of painting two very well developed characters that you can t help but be curious about Yes, it had me reading well into the night to see how it all ends.Butand this is a big BUT I m talking about the but of all buts here, people You may argue with me that this is fiction You may argue with me that you have to suspend your disbelief because you re reading a darker book But here s the thing, no matter how you spin it, FOR ME, this book romanticizes sexual abuse It is not, I repeat, NOT a dub con It is sexual abuse Pure and simple And there is nothing dark, interesting, captivating, or intriguing about the hero to me He s a rapey asshole No matter how much the author tries to justify him, or explain his actions and she does at the end He s not an anti hero I can get behind, because there is just nothing redeemable about him to me.I ll be honest, this is a book that you will either love, or hate There is no middle ground No gray area view spoiler This anti hero forces the heroine to give him a blowjob as part of sexual blackmail bullying in the first 5% of the book And no, it s not the kind of blowjob where she secretly wants it but he can see through it She hates it She doesn t want to do it And he forces her into performing the act in front of his two other jock buddies that have been making her life miserable in high school after she reported one of them for touching her inappropriately and getting him kicked off the football team hide spoiler I ll let you think on that for a second here Is that a character you can read about If so, you ll fall into the side of readers that would love this book And if you re like me and couldn t see past this for the entirety of the book Welp I ll tell you that this book just isn t for you.And here s the thing He CONTINUES this behavior for the entire fucking book view spoiler He takes her virginity because HE decides that she s ready even after she repeatedly asked him not to and told him she wants to wait He repeatedly fucks her without a condom even when she begs him to wrap him up and is scared to be a teenage pregnancy statistic hide spoiler And the heroine No matter how smart, sassy, strong willed, or backboned she isjust takes it all.Again, you ll say to me, but Lana, it s fiction, calm your tits.And I ll say to you that what it is, is tone deaf It spins a tale of a completely fucked up rapey asshole and shows that all he needs, is to find a woman that understands him and doesn t want to change him Because that s just who he is, and so long as she gets him , it s all ok And it s all ok because he only does that to her He doesn t feel those urges towards any other unsuspecting female victims women Just her And in the midst of the MeToo movement, I m quite honestly shocked that a book like this is written.I m not a delicate snowflake I LOVE a dark romance and I ve read my fair share Just take a look at my shelves But this book is just not one I can get behind The author is clearly a talented writer, and I ll be trying some of her other books Sometimes a character just isn t for you, and this was that case for me Again, it s a matter of taste And as I ve said, you ll either love or hate it So read it and judge for yourself.Find me on flag 125 likesLike see review View all 42 comments Lana Dirty Girl Romance Leslie wrote Lana Dirty Girl Romance wrote Leslie wrote I

that s absolutely fineCause these are also my personal thoughts intertwined with the impressions after reading this bookthe book I, unfortunately, DIDN T like Inspite Sam Mariano s writing and inspite her given warning about this book and its contentIt just reminded me of one similar book in recent past that irked my protective senses to full blast and I still firmly stand with my primar expressivness.The said warning stated that this is a dark bully romance I instantaneously thought of Penelope Douglas Bully which I liked, obviously since I m mentioning it here and I dived inBUTThe very first interaction between the two characters, that we soon capture as the main heroine Zoey Ellis, the nerdy, a bit shy and religious YA that decided to stand up for herself against a football player who gropped her without her given consent or permission and is now being cornered by the said player and two of his teammates and being sexually abused by one of them, Carter Mahoney the rich, prick quarteback and then being blackmailed into silence if she ever thought of reporting this to anyoneDIDN T sound like something worthy of consideration, yet I actually wanted to give this author a chance.So I went furtherand absolutely got confused by the irrational but later on, a very conscious dislike of, now, both characters, cause now the heroine is fucking curious about this guy who basically raped her in front of his teammates but that issue was somehow interpreted as rough sex insert huge fucking question mark And she enters this weird, totally non believable relationship with the said prickand then well, the author tries to pull it all into the romantisized bubble of unconventional sexual intercourse between two consenting YA BUT she also jumps into her own mouth by emphysizing the heroine s wording of NO and prick s final deaf ignore button and solely deciding to take what he wants anywaySo, I m confused now by the final result, so is this supposed to be justified as being okay cause it s under the dark genre But why then intensifying and emphysizing the wrong cause make no mistake, it s actually the basis of doing wrong and criminal act And then trying to make it okay and pushing the nice things about the prick so I would like the guy in the endGuess what I didn t like him in the beginning and I disliked him even in the endThis book actually irritated and frustrated me to moon and back and my being poetic here doesn t diminish the stare of anger I m in By the end, and I damned my reading OCD complex sigh for needing to finish the book project I startedI found myself comparing this story with another questionable book I ve read by K Webster who I love as an author that got such a negative hype on GR and FB and was so bloody stoned as a bad propaganda, and yes, I tried to explain to myself the wrongfully percepted events in that book and I concluded that the author might have unintentionally acted without tact and with smudgy perception turned a story that was supposed to entertain in the dark genre, it ended being cheap, offensive and tactless.Unfortunately, I found this story just as same as described in the sentence above.Like I ve said many times before, the point of presenting the dark material it can t be based on gore, shock, twisted, depravation and torment alone, it really has to have a good base on which all these unconventional actions are built upon and then gradually grow towards someting or maybe less, depending on the intent of the author s storytelling.This story wasn t it for me in that regard.In fact, it did the opposite of what it supposed to be delivering and the final result left me flat but angered at myself for reading You want to know something, Ellis I ve got bad news for you, so listen up Sometimes people do bad shit to you, and they don t get punished they get away with it Hell, sometimes they get rewarded for it If all this shit with Jake didn t show you that, if all this shit with me hasn t shown you that, maybe you re not as smart as you think you are.Yeah, the words prick says to the heroineactually do reflect the everyday life s situationin someone s existencebut I somehow believe that fiction, dark fiction too, should at least give me a resemblance of an escapism to smth thrilling, forbidden, exciting but on a higher level than the immature bullying bordering with criminal offenses if not for the fictional part with even lower characterisation and superficial trial of developing a romance.Sorry This just didn t work for me, and honestly I actually ecpected On every level.But again, these are my thoughts alone and do not represent the general opinion so even if this didn t work for me, cause it s simply a thin line bonding the sphere of depravation and the touch of reality.And it s hard to obtain that line when you want to make a differenceit can go both ways, it s either a success or a bust, and only details set them apart flag

I am all for jerk hero s that turn into mush once they meet their partner, their mate, their one true love I did not want to read halfway through this story and give up and rate it because I am not one who likes to just DNF a novel and give it a rating if I didn t properly finish it So now that I did finish it, I can officially say this is by far the worst book I have read this year What a way to come to the end of the year am I right I honestly do not know what Sam Mariano was thinking If wanting to portray to the reader that a bad jock, who is rich and gets everything he wants and does not get no s from anyone can get a sweet virgin girl who will bend for his will was the message she wanted to get through, maybe she should not have had that first encounter of the first and second chapter be of three guys taking advantage, both physically and emotionally or a virgin girl when she was constantly saying no I do not like to use the R word that rhymes with tape, but that is what the main male character in this story was very close on doing Once he got her to trust him, he slowly started drawing his walls down so he can let her in and she could let him in as well But I do not like how the process of her getting there went There was a lot of confusion because sometimes I did enjoy their banter, when he stated a set of claim on her whenever he kissed her, whenever he got jealous That s something that I truly enjoy in a male character, but I do not like the way he was when wanting to stake control over her Especially when she was in a vulnerable state of mind that should have sent a trigger to back away and to stop Overall just to recap everything, if you like main characters that just want to take without any consent then this is your book But I would never recommend this book after fully reading it When I first read the synopsis, I instantly sent it to my friend Vic but now I regret it one hundred percent I fully support authors who spend time writing a novel because it is indeed something that requires time to do, but when the story has a message of non consensual sex tan I am out the door Very disappointed Follow Me On Blog Instagram Facebook

FIRST AND FOREMOST There is a warning on this book for a VERY good reason Not necessarily a trigger warning, but a warning nonetheless This book gets very twisted very quickly If you think this is about a spoiled hero that only wants the one girl that ignores him and fights him off, you re correct.Just kidding.It s not.It s so much praved Carter Mahoney is not for the faint of heart When an author can tell me a story and make me put myself in the shoes of the character s POV I am reading, that is awesome it s great I love it When an author can make me empathize with the antihero in the book, that is amazing But to make me cheer him on To make me want him to succeed in his quest What the heck Either I am SICK, because this is not ok or she is just bringing out the depravity in ME Ok, she s not let s laugh together we are laughing, right , but I couldn t help but question myself the entire time I read this book What is wrong with me Whyyyy do I like this so much I wanted him to get his girl Who thinks that way when they are doing things they should n e v e r get away with After reading this book, I m convinced I have issues.I ve decided my new word is WRON G OODI kid you not, I wrote that on so many messages and FB posts I made about this book because it s so wrong, but it s sooo good, and it s wrong that it s so good so that can t be good, right That s SOOO wrong, right HelpSam Mariano did an excellent job capturing the fear and the anger, as well as the warring emotions that come into play during and after a traumatizing experience, but she also made me empathize and understand why certain actions were reasoned the way they were These characters are teenagers in their senior year of high school, so while you and I obviously have hindsight as adults to make smart er decisions, I didn t think anything was overly dramatic or stupid, which was very helpful for me to get through this one The mindset of a teenager isn t always easy to capture in a book without them sounding like immature brats sorry , and I most definitely feel like this one was written very well because I didn t ever feel like rolling my eyes because of drama It was real teenage decisions and drama, relevant to their age group so appreciative of that I can make you do a lot of things, but I can t make you trust me I cannot believe Sam Mariano made me fall in love with an asshole I m serious I found it interesting and pretty impressive that she could turn my own feelings on me She made me validate everything, right or wrong I mean, how can I feel this way about Carter I truthfully don t understand how I can feel this way about him But see, there is always a reason There is always a reason we fall in love with these heroes , right As bad as Carter was, there was a side to him that just made me go to mush And as mean and brash and insulting as Zoey was to Carter rightfully so , I absolutely loved how he handled it His comments and his actions were, for all intents and purposes, bad but the other side of him made me smile and laugh His demeanor brought out the sigh that he never should have received from me but I can t say he didn t deserve that sigh either He was confident and smart, he had the all American good looks and great athletic ability, and to add to it he had charisma I could see every single thing in this book happeningevery single thing And for there to be some reality behind this book so that I could connect and relate, that most certainly helped my non high school books reading frame of mind Set in a small town in Texas that clearly rode on their high school football team s coattails for Friday Night Fun, this one played out like a movie I would LOVE to see on the screen One fucking mistake is not who I am, and it damn sure isn t the sum total of our fucking relationship It s probably wrong to love a book with this type of content as much as I did, but I am not even ashamed to admit it Was their relationship healthy Probably not in the eyes of many, but who am I to judge It worked for them. No, I am not romanticizing anything with this review, nor am I okay ing any type of lascivious behavior I am just going to say that while I know this was fiction, I also know that I am completely in love with Zoey and Carter s story and how it worked out for them. This one tested my moral compass on every level possible, not gonna lie Because, whyhow could I cheer on this bully that used any, and I mean ANY bold and capitalized means necessary to get what he wanted, when he wanted it The darkness of the book never scared me Not even a little bit The twistedness, the remorseless way in which Carter unapologetically exacted his revenge and got what he wanted made me whispers giddy WHAT I know, right Innocent Bee loving the morally corrupt high school senior quarterback I m doomed.But I m ready for rubs hands I am ready to jump into of Mariano s books, because if she has to ability to twist me up and captivate me like this, I am on board I ll never be the safe bet, Zoey BEEPURCHASE Kindle Unlimited Purchase Link HERE FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN AN

and Zoey will end up with a happy for now ending It s so horrible how these boys treat her in the first couple of chapters that I cannot add it into my review or will remove it No, I cry, tears burning behind my eyes Please Please don t hurt me It gets worse Carter The Hero Forces Zoey The Heroine to go down on him And it s nasty raw I love dark romance, but these days dark romance is being pushed entirely too far Self published authors have given dark romance jerks alphas, a whole new meaning, and I despise it I have read many dark romance books, and have enjoyed them I love a jerk who has a touch of a cruel side, then falls in love and nothing else in the world matters to him, except the love of his life But, there is nothing to love about this Hero What s worse is the authors who write trash like this and add it to romance because there is nothing lovable about a plot like this Heroes like Carter are not redeemable There is nothing romantic about a woman being raped, tortured, and then falls in love with her rapist And that s what this is I truly think it is an insult to a woman who has been raped I believe those women will tell you they can still smell that guy s breath on them Or how dirty they still feel years after And that is why I find it unbelievable when Heroes like Carter have a Happy for now ending with their victim It s a shame that so many self published authors are adding it to romance these days just to make it dark I mean, get creative, and create a real Jerk, a real fucking alpha, because nothing is fucking sweet about this I cannot consider this a romance book Books with a plot like this, the heroine should have gone on another path that didn t involve her rapist A real Hero should have been created to rescue her and steal the reader s heart It s unbelievable that someone like him can treat someone like that, and yet she agrees to marry him I cannot picture someone who has been humiliated and tortured the way Zoey was in this book and to act the way she did and agree to marry the man who has hurt her.I love dark erotic romance, but I will have to stay away from them because this is too much Dark romance has a new theme added to them, and I cannot bear to read them any If you have suffered from the situation in this book, I would advise you not to read it I think it would be disturbing I read the trigger warning, and have never been in a situation that occurred in this book, and pray to God I never will be, but it was disturbing for me because of how the plot unfolded It made me so angry as if it were a joke flag 28

fascinates me You and me both, Zoey You and me both I just finished this book todayafter being CONSUMED by it for the last 3 days I would literally STEAL moments of privacy to read this book I would read it in the bathroom no shame , on my way to the mailbox, right before work if I showed up early I woke up at 330 am to read, just another chapter That ended up being a LONG day because of course I didn t go back to sleep, I m not a quitter LOL You get the picture, I would read this book any spare minute I had because I NEEDED to keep reading I NEEDED to know what other twisted scenarios would happen.I m typically not a dark romance reader Yes, I ve ventured into that type of romance before, but I usually steer away from it BUT after all the noise this particular dark story was making on social media and among my book besties , I HAD to see what all the fuss was about I decided that this book would be the one to dip my toes back into the darkness Wellthere was no DIPPING, I was PLUNGED into the darkness within the first 3 chapters and it took the entire book to work my way out Sam Mariano didn t just push the envelope with this story, she OBLITERATED it This book truly puts bullying on a whole new level for me With Carter, you can only tap out if you literally can t take any Anything before a hard limits fair game Let me say this, this book is NOT for the faint of heart If you re looking for rainbows and kittens and a Prince Charming fluff story, this book is NOT for you BUTif you re craving for something to test your boundaries To explore a darker romance, one that is like no other If you want something that WILL push your limits and have you twisted up inside while reading Have your heart racing Have your jaw dropping with WTF Oh no that did NOT just happen moments Have you CONSUMED with the need to know what could possibly happen next Then this is DEFINITELY the book for you AngstGalore You MUST go into the story with an OPEN MIND and read it for what it isa journey A journey of finding THE ONE that speaks to and sees your darkness, and likes to play within that darkness FInding THE ONE you re allowed to drop your mask with I spend every day of my life with people who like the look of a mask I wear, Zoey You re the only person who likes what s underneath better Finding THE ONE who can love you BECAUSE of who you are inside Finding THE ONE who can challenge you and push your comfort zones because without high risks, there are no high rewards Carter and Zoey do that for each other Carter s exploration of my boundaries is hard, because he s forcing me to be brutally honest not just with him, but myself He won t let me have a comfort zone If you can look at their story and not compare it to real life, then you will enjoy this book for what it is, a boy finding a girl who loves him for who he is.If you take my advice and go into this book with an open mind, you will hate to love Carter TRUST ME In the back of my mind, I kept asking myself, Why don t I hate him He s such an a hole And so arrogant And MEAN He s just a motherf cker LOL He had me swearing a LOT in my mind I have little children so I had to sensor myself LOL Carter isn t looking for you to love him, he s looking for you to SEE him and Zoey see s him He s the type of character that gets what he wants and if he wants it bad enough, he LITERALLY takes it But then there s Zoey, she holds her own and meet s Carter s challenges with her own She eventually shows him he can take what he wants from her, because she s willing to give it Zoey was such a fiercely strong characterI admired her and was glad she had a backbone and never wavered on her stance She was a true match for Carter I m not going to say that this book was an easy read, but it s a journeythese two characters had a story to tell and they didn t shy away from it, Sam didn t shy away from it You need to push past some of the tougher scenes and keep going Their story is worth it This my first novel from Sam and she sure blew me out of the water She did an extraordinary job of telling this sensitive story This story was truly unexpected I went into blind, living off of the high from all the enthusiasm surrounding it and I can wholeheartedly say that that enthusiasm is warrantedis book is the real deal He might like to call me his plaything, but he doesn t look at me like a toy He looks at me like a treasure Like the heavens opened up and dropped me into his lap, and he s forever grateful for the gift, even if he doesn t express it in words Even if his way of loving is sometimes brutal and scarring, even if he is predator than prince, somehow he is the perfect fit for me 6 stars AUTHORS NOTE AT THE BEGINNING OF UNTOUCHABLES Please, please take me seriously when I say this is a BULLY romance This book contains some dark sh t, and if you have sexual violence abuse triggers, this may not be a good fit for you I know where the characters limits are, but you know your own sensitivities much better than I do.Carter Mahoney is not a comfortable hero, and this is not always a comfortable love story If you need safe, good guy heroes in every romance you read, this is not the story for you These characters have their own unique damage, needs, desires, and proficiencies, and they are seeking out partners who fit them as they are, not partners who need them to change and be something they re not I have very much enjoyed Carter and Zoey s story, so I hope you will too, but I want to make sure I ve warned prepared you adequately Carter Mahoney is not for

wow Next level, lol I love dark romance so I wasn t remotely scared by it, but I can see how those with less twisted reading tastes would be Don t worry, in this case, the worst is not yet to come You start off with the worst and then follow the journey afterward I loved Carter Just going to get that out of the way I didn t always love Carter, there were times when I had a hell of a time trusting that shifty bastard, but after Mateo Morelli, Sam gave me a little taste for manipulative bad guy heroes, tbh, and by the end of the story of course Carter got me on his team I won t spoil, but that gesture in the last chapter before the epilogue LOVE I was so happy for Zoey She is such a wonderful heroine and she deserved all the good things that came her way Anyway, I love an anti hero who will stop at literally nothing to get his girl, who will tear threw literally anyone who tries to stand in his way without remorse That gets me every time, and Carter s dirty tricks were no exception.As mentioned, I adored Zoey too She was such a finely woven character I so appreciated her struggle to overcome her own upbringing to be the kind of person she wanted to be, what a great friend she was, how intelligent, open minded, curious, understanding I loved the way she stood up for herself and others, but without taking it to an overtly bitchy place I absolutely loved the evolution of her relationship with Carter I loved every bit of their banter, their thought provoking conversations as they got to know themselves and one another It was no mystery to me how he became enad of her He s lucky to have met her, and I was literally glued to the page reading their love story You re not like other guys, I state, meeting his gaze Surely you realize that His amusement dissipates and he watches me curiously And you re not like other girls Lifting my eyebrows and looking pointedly at my arms pinned against his couch, I say, That s a given, or we wouldn t be here right now True You d probably be buried in a shallow grave somewhere The amusement in his voice is so wrong I shake my head No It s not funny to joke about murdering women Can we not I can t be completely sure you re joking, and I d like to tackle one monstrous thing at a time There was definitely a coming of age element to this story The side characters all felt very much like high schoolers, but given their established superior levels of intelligence and life experience, Carter and Zoey were both mature for their age Carter was sexualized at a younger than average age so he s much sexually active demanding than the average high school jock Zoey has a burgeoning intelligence that has long surpassed her environment and is evident in her smart thought processes and deft handling of the situation she ends up in Definitely not an average response, but Zoey isn t an average girl, and I just loved her Was not at all surprised to find out her eventual life path, and honestly I would love to read of it I would read a whole series following their lives I just loved these characters I m so sad the book is over already Such a wonderful story, such a great ending, but I never feel ready to let go of Sam s characters, I don t know what it is They re so much like real people, like friends I want to keep visiting I guess I will, because Sam is one author whose books I always find myself wanting

be that Come oooon rolls eyes He s manipulative, vindictive selfish and shallow Not edgy Not macho Not alpha Not interesting No She s such a hypocrite, it s infuriating It took me nearly five days to finish this book She makes fun out of stepford wives yet she s let him walk all over her and he hasn t even dropped the biggest lie of all The L word She keeps bringing up the wife thing It s like she s trying so hard to make out she s not bothered but she s actually obsessed and envious She literally wants him to shut her up by reassuring her that he will make her his dumb wife It s so off putting

having a child with someone else But at the same time you re saying only a ditz would settle with him Yet, You re saying YOU WANT THAT Logic, wherefore art thou The final straw for me was when she said she felt she had of a bond with the photographer and that Kalsey wouldn t have let her leave the cafeteria Is she 2 yrs old So what, you live your life based on what others let you do How on

a hardship in the slightest I d be interested in seeing this couple againseeing how things areor are not going 4 stars flag 8 likesLike see review Dec 18, 2018 Rachel rated it it was ok This review

    3. Fuck it, this will probably be the unpopular review and that s absolutely fineCause these are also my personal thoughts intertwined with the impressions after reading this bookthe book I, unfortunately, DIDN T like Inspite Sam Mariano s writing and inspite her given warning about this book and its contentIt just reminded me of one similar book in recent past that irked my protective senses to full blast and I still firmly stand with my primar expressivness.The said warning stated that Fuck it, t [...]


    4. What the heck did I just read WHAT THE HECK JUST HAPPENED I am very well aware of the warning the author provides in the synopsis, however, the fact that someone wants to write about the lack of consent during sexual encounters as a motivation to have the reader reading of said story is something that I am trying to find out why it is in any way okay When a girl, or a boy says no , stop that , can you please stop , do not touch me , that right there states to back off, step a What [...]


    5. REVIEW 4.5 Stars Do you know what you ve done, princess You just gave me the keys to the kingdom There s no stopping me now.
