Ask For It, by Sylvia Day


It is very difficult, as a writer, to convey “I must have you,” and make it sound romantic, rather than creepy. This novel falls squarely on the creepy side. Marcus is obsessed to the point of rapist/stalker, and, sadly, Elizabeth is all “he turns me on so it’s okay that he treats me this way.” I also hesitate to call this historical fiction, for all that it’s set in 1770, because it has some substantial anachronisms. Period language seems to go out the window in the interest of writing steamier scenes. I won’t read the next in this series. For 18 and up.
