We Know We Love It

"What I know is, if you can wait in bureaucratic offices alongside another human being and then stand in line with him for hours, some of those without air conditioning, and never once regret being by his side?
That's love."

Goodreads Description 

The incendiary author of Begging for It and Asking for It again plunges readers into the shadowy depths of love, pain, pleasure and peril...

How far is too far?

Finally sure of each other's strength and love, Jonah and Vivienne continue to explore their darkest fantasies together. However, what should be a night of ecstasy takes a dangerous turn, injuring Vivienne. She shrugs off the incident, but Jonah is haunted by it, particularly by the fear that others may believe he abuses her, or even glimpse the truth of their erotic obsession.

Then Jonah receives a call from his younger sister, Rebecca, who's dealing with trouble of her own in South America. When Vivienne travels with him to aid Rebecca, she learns yet more about his tortured history—and Jonah opens up to Vivienne as never before.

Can Vivienne help Jonah cast off the shadows of his past forever?

MATURE AUDIENCE
When I got a surprise email from Berkley telling me there was a novella about Jonah and Viv sitting in my NetGalley I screamed out loud causing my mother to ask what was wrong. The struggle was real. I was SO fucking excited to read this, I finished my current read and started immediately. Jonah and Viv are one of my favorite couples ever and their unconventional fantasies make my heart beat faster. Love them times a million.

This novella takes place after Begging For It and we get to see Jonah and Viv, still playing, but Jonah continues to deal with his fear of actually hurting Viv. While it's a component and a legitimate fear of his, it wasn't the main focus of the story. Jonah's sister gets into a situation in Belize and they fly down to help her. We get to see them work together in a crisis and how they understand and complement each other is just perfect. What I appreciated about this novella was while there was conflict, if you will, between Jonah and Viv it was minor. I liked that this wasn't a drama-filled story, rather we get to see Jonah and Viv together and happy and work together even when there are bumps in the road between them.

It felt great to be back with the characters I've come to know and love and if you loved Asking For It & Begging For It, this is def a great and drama-free novella to add to your TBR.
