REVIEW: Beg Me by Shiloh Walker

Beg Me

Beg me…there had been a time when those words made her burn with desire. But now, there was only fear.

Once, Tania Sinclair’s life was almost perfect…oh, it had its ups and downs but she was happily married to a guy that adored her, one who had no problem indulging every kinky fantasy she ever had. But a couple of tragedies later, she’s barely holding it together. A car accident took away her husband, and an attack from somebody she should have been able to trust has shaken not only her confidence, but it’s also stripped away her fantasies and even made it painful to look back on her memories of her husband without fear.

Two years after her attack, Tania is determined to take her life back and the first step is taking back herself…her fantasies, her dreams, her memories. There’s only one person she can trust to do it, too. One person she wants enough…Drake Bennett, her husband’s best friend.

Falling for your best friend’s wife—never smart. Drake’s watched Tania quietly for years, watched her…wanted her, knowing he’d never have her. First, she was taken. And then, that night two years ago—a night that still scars her, a night that’s left bruises on her that still haven’t healed. He does what he can, though, because he loves her too much not to. He’s her friend, there when she needs him.

And now she needs him. She’s asked him for a favor…one that just about blows his mind…

Why I Read this Book: I have been wanting to try contemporary erotic romance for a while now. To be honest, I was a bit intimidated. I didn’t know what to expect or just how ‘erotic’ erotic would be, especially when I saw the warning on this book:

Warning: This book involves light bondage play, rape fantasy & role-playing. The acts between the hero & heroine are consensual, but they may not be ideal for all readers…

I was a bit hesitant when I read rape fantasy. I have never read anything like that before and I didn’t know what to expect. So I took a deep breath, put my big girl panties on and decided to hand my contemporary erotic romance v-card over to Shiloh Walker. I love her writing style and really enjoyed reading Broken and The Missing so I put my trust in her hands and she didn’t disappoint.

What I Liked: This book packed quite a punch for only being a little over 100 pages! I didn’t think a story could come full circle, let alone such an emotional story, in so few pages but this author did just that. Beg Me read like a full length novel.

I felt such a strong connection with Tania and Drake. I ached for Tania, who’d literally been to hell and back. The traumatizing experience that robbed her of her precious memories with her husband broke my heart. The last couple of years have been really intense for her. All she wants to do is put it all behind her so she can move on and enjoy the sexual fantasies she once desired and she wants Drake to help her. Drake’s been in love with Tania since before she married his best friend. What he wants more than anything else is to be with her but that requires conquering some emotional hurdles.

What I Didn’t Like: I can’t think of anything I didn’t like. This was my first time reading contemporary erotic romance so I don’t have anything to compare it to.

Overall Impression: Shiloh Walker has (again) delivered a hot, steamy, emotional read. While she writes titillating love scenes, she also tugs at your heart strings. Beg Me focuses on not just the sex but the relationship between these characters as well.  The raw emotions felt by the two main characters was intense. You can feel the chemistry between Tania and Drake.

While I enjoyed reading Beg Me, I will say that this is not a book for everyone. The main characters in this book enjoy partaking in rough sex and rape fantasies. Let’s tackle the elephant in the room – the rape fantasy element. The participants are willing and the sex is consensual. It’s role playing. There are safeguards in place, which made me feel more comfortable about reading it. If you’re okay with this and if you’re looking for a quick, hot read then Beg Me is it. If you looking for a contemporary erotic romance read to pop your cherry (like I was), then I think Beg Me is a good way to go.

  1. This was certainly a tough book to start with it seems, but I am glad you enjoyed it. I do wonder if I would think it was too much for me, but I have heard she has written it so well

  2. Blodeuedd - I would suggest that you start with Broken. It's a great romantic suspense!

  3. thanks for the review, BV. :) glad you liked it...

    @Blodeuedd, you might try Her Best Friend's Lover, Her Wildest Dreams or One Night with You...straight Contemps, no menages or anything. There might be a few others listed here-I'm not home now though so I can't go thru them, can't remember either...the memory, she sucks...O.o
