That has forgotten what the human touch is?NOTES FROM THE AUTHOR This is a book full of romance and anti rape messages I didn't write this book to romanticize violence against women but to tell the story of a girl who has to come of age under the most terrible circumstances This full length novel is a stand alone No cliffhanger Alpha male hero No cheating No slut shaming Includes a discussion guide for bookclubs Possible triggers for abuse survivors Loosely based on documented evidence of unpunished war crime UPDATE 121016So this book has apparently been revised and re edited to fix all the glaring errors that I had problems with before I decided to give this story another chance because it had a lot of potential to be great and it is Whereas before I was so distracted by all the grammatical errors that I just couldn't fully get into the story now I was completely immersed in Lila's world Even though I read this book a while back and ultimately knew what happened I found myself staying up late in the night to finish it I finished this book within 24 hours While I still wholeheartedly agree with my review below I'm still in love with Aleksey's character and still found Lila to be way too immature for her age and the environment she grew up in I found that my response to the newly revised edition was greater than when I initially read it And again I already knew what was going to happen Which is why I'm going to be changing my 3 star rating to a 5 star rating Not only was I unable to put down the book but I wanted to backtrack just to keep the story alive a little longerOriginal reviewLila lives in a cruel world A world where recruitment isn't just for military but rather for the military's sexual services The soldiers go from town to town and recruit young men and women to be their own personal sex slaves That's not the worst part during the recruitment process the soldiers can choose anyone to rape on a ceremonial stone The soldiers will be coming to Lila's town next and she's of age to be recruited She refuses to have her first time be against her will So she tries to get her best friend to sleep with her However she wasn't expecting the protection and love of a certain neutral cop This story reminded me a lot of The Bronze Horseman You have Lila who is in a place of need Her father and brother have medical conditions that make her family the town pariahs Lila is a very inexperienced girl when it comes to love relationships and sex So when Aleksey shows up and takes a sudden interest in her by offering her family protection giving them his food rations and ultimately taking care of them as best as he can without raising suspicion among the other cops So many things reminded me of The Bronze Horseman but at the same time the author added so many new elements to it that I didn't feel like I was reading the same storyMy one major complaint about the book was the fact that it felt like the book had never graced the desk of an editor There were words missing sentences that were jumbled up and sometimes it took me a few tries to figure out what the author meant I generally tend to overlook them as long as they don't interfere with the flow of the story but there were so many of them that it became a big problem for me I think once this goes through the editorial wringer it will be great Aside from that though I though the story was great I fell for Aleksey immediately I mean here he is new to the area and all of a sudden he's saving Lila's family left and right Once during an air raid when the person at the bunker entrance wouldn't let them enter because of her father and brother's disabilities Aleksey could have just turned a blind eye and let them continue on their way to a new hiding spot but instead he marches up to that bunker and rains hell and fire down on the guy who didn't let them in He doesn't stop there though when their home is destroyed in the air raid no one is willing to take them in even though they've been ordered to take in those who need a place to stay Again he could have just let the towns people figure it out on their own but not Aleksey Nope He shames them all for their behavior and then takes Lila's family to the building where he tends to injured soldiers since his position is sort of like a doctor There were just so many sweet things he did for Lila that really melted my heart I've put my life at risk for others ever since I joined the Army It'd be a nice change to risk my life for something I want for me I crave youWhile I loved Aleksey I couldn't stand Lila She was supposed to be eighteen years old but the way she behaved made me think she was closer to fourteen I mean she keep trying to sleep with her friend who doesn't want to sleep with her Meanwhile there's Aleksey who's taken care of her from the day he arrived and has offered his services to her but she refuses him Not only that but knowing about the dangers leading up to the recruitment she does stupid things like leave her house at night to try to seduce her friend Mind you there are patrols going on with soldiers and cops around who wouldn't hesitate to take privileges with a teenage girl who's out at night Heck one guy had already assaulted her already in broad daylight with people around Those people just turned a blind eye So tell me why why would you go out at night knowing the dangers? She really frustrated me The V Girl was nothing like I expected It was dark gritty but at the same time very romantic I know those things shouldn't go together but they did I think the sweet romance between Aleksey and Lila helped balance out all of the darkness I enjoyed reading this story and look forward to what the author has in store for readers next Favorite uoteYou usually can't recall all the people you've shared laughs with But you rarely forget the people you've shared your tears with

her fears her wants her hopes her turmoil She’s everything an 18 year girl is—full of complex feelings and desires a blend of childishness and maturity that is on the cusp of true confidence and ownership of self—but she is also so much a survivor a fighter a dreamer someone who expects the worst but deep down wishes and hopes for the best I loved Lila Not once did I feel unsatisfied with her character; I could understand her very well and thought she was a great choice of a heroineThis is where Aleksey comes in; he’s actually super well written too He embodies the “alpha male” archetype but in a way that removes him entirely from being abusive He heavily values consent is open and forthcoming about his wants with Lila and the constructs of their relationship as it progresses from sexual connection to deep romantic love so for example he doesn’t lie to her about wanting a romantic relationship with her at first and is honest about wanting to be just about a sexual connection and human touch doesn’t blame Lila for her PTSD or try to force or coerce her into doing something she doesn’t want to is willing to fulfill the things Lila needs in order to have with him like consent trust and understanding and always has a firm control over himself with Lila so he doesn’t hurt her—even accidentally He’s not perfect of course he’s suffering from a kind of emotional ignorance and detachment from his hard life but he slowly learns with Lila and becomes better and better with how to love her and express it just like how Lila slowly becomes better at trusting and being comfortable with sexual intimacy after her ordeals and fears Although one thing I want to address is that Aleksey’s kink is rape roleplay or as the book calls it “consensual non consent”; which while like Lila that makes me personally a little uncomfortable just because the nature of this is a little complex to define in terms of morality and when it goes to far or is no longer safehealthy I think the author handles this in a good way by having Aleksey understand the boundaries of it and that he has to be aware of his partner’s feelings and be sensitive to when consent is withdrawn or a line is drawn If this was just your average story I’d say it was unnecessary to add in but usually the people who have this kink and who are very clear about the boundaries of it either exist in a society that warps sex or they have had a traumatic experience with sexual assault; for example survivors of rape often engage in rape roleplaying because it’s a way for them to regain a sense of control over their bodies and cope with their trauma though it can manifest in other people for other reasons While we’re not given a backstory of how Aleksey got this kink I’d say it’s safe to assume it manifested from the world he’s in and the things he’s seen much like how Lila’s voyeurism developed as a result of seeing others get raped and is her coping mechanismAlso there’s a seven year age gap between our leads but since we’re in a situation where Lila wasn’t really allowed to be like your average teenager and mature at her own pace she is presented as a much mature and competent person than what we see in your average contemporary novel I’m not being as harsh as I’d usually be Yes she’s 18 but generally a 25 year old is a lot mature and experienced so this creates a power imbalance which is a problem In this case even though Aleksey is experienced and mature he doesn’t present anything in his behavior that speaks that he would abuse this gap in power and Lila is intelligent and experienced enough to not easily fall prey to being in that situation or be the kind of person someone would target if they had such power abusing tendencies in mindWe get to watch their relationship develop slowly understand their individual feelings their turmoil and we see how them opening up to each other deepens and intensifies their connection with one another as it grows from one thing into another so you get a feel that this relationship is real and legitimate making it uite a realist romance that speaks to readers on deep levels all while the story somehow makes time to be a platform for discussion and thought regarding the morals of relationships and sex and autonomy at the same time as this epic story of dealing with emotions and sexual desire between two people not uite sure how to merge the two work to find the answers together one clumsy step at a timeAs for the writing the author does a superb job The style was simple yet heartfelt and appropriate to the setting The messages are coherently conveyed the story soundly weaved the characters very well fleshed out and outside of a few errors in my Kindle edition I could find no grievous flaw to the prose Thumbs up from meAll in all if you aren’t very sensitive to the topics surrounding rape and aren’t triggered by the topic easily this is a great read that’s as eually moving for the heart as it thought provoking for the intellect Though since the book contains a lot of mature subject matter and a few detailed sex scenes I would definitely say this is new adult though I think perhaps it’d be worthwhile to have a mature 16 or 17 year old read it because it has such a healthy romancerelationship and offers very sound good messages regarding some very sensitive issues that are paramount to your average young person and young women especially I wrote this kind of fast right before heading out somewhere so I’ll likely return to it at a later date to proofread and maybe add some stuff All in all five star book Thanks for the recommendation Veronica
