DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER. 
You’ll tell me you don’t… but you already think you know
what my story’s about.

You have no idea. 
Just like the people sitting in this courtroom. 
She asked for it.  That’s what they keep saying.

And no, it’s not because my skirt was too short or I was
drunk at a party. 
It’s nothing like that.  It’s because of what I like
and how I like it. 

They’re judging me as I sit in the front row, my eyes drawn
to the man on trial. 
If I’d known it was going to end like this, I never would
have gone home with him. 
But he’s the type of man I just can’t say no to. 

I wanted to feel his lips kiss down my neck. 
I dreamed of running my fingers along the rough stubble on
his jaw.
I craved his hands on me, pinning me down.
I needed to whisper his name in the dark, late at
night. 

You still think you know what happened? You don’t. 
He’s innocent and I enjoyed every second I was with him.

Let me tell you my story … all about how I asked for it.

Review

He’s the type of man who gives you chills while making everything else that matters hot. The kind you know you’re supposed to stay away from because they’ll ruin you without thinking twice … The kind of man my dreams are made of.


Time for honesty! I gotta admit that I'm kind of disappointed with this book after finishing it. I had been super hyped for this and I had high expectations and let's say they weren't met. I'm sad to say it but it's true. It's actually the reason I've been putting off on writing this review.

It's such an important book and topic that it saddens me I didn't LOVE love it. It is a pretty great book; it's a book that everyone should read because it portraits an extremely important issue in our society: rape and slut shaming the victims of it. That's why it is extremely important and should be read and talked about! I loved it for that reason alone.

However, when it comes to plot, it just didn't live up to the expectations that I'd built, and it was very predictable at a certain point. Other than that though, I really enjoyed it and I really really loved Dean and Allie and how their relationship was so different from the norm and just important, because it was very important specially in regards to the main topic/issue of the book.

“As in, you should know better than to think I’m giving up on chasing you until I get what I want,” I correct her and hold her gaze. She breaks it though, easing back against the wall and crossing her ankles as she watches the pool game. The sound of the hard balls crashing against one another and the crowd’s reaction when one sinks makes me turn around for a moment. “I like the chase,” she admits and then reaches out and brushes her knuckles against my arm. “I bet you could catch me fast if I let you.” I huff a laugh and smirk at her. “If you let me?” “Yeah,” she says with a note of temptation in her voice, like she’s baiting me, and takes another drink. “Allie Cat, you don’t fool me. You love this little cat and mouse game.” “If I’m the cat, that means you’re the mouse?” she asks me and it’s only then that I realize what I said and how I said it. Maybe the whiskey’s already getting to me. “No, no, you got that wrong. You’re my Allie Cat, but this game we’re playing, I’m the one that’s doing the chasing.”

She Asked For It has it all: 
  • heat, boy there's lots of it. Some scenes are way hot!!
  • angst, it's all over. There's more angst and heartache than anything else, but not just in terms of their relationship but also to do with the whole plot and purpose of the book and Allie's plan.
  • sweetness, because despite the fact that Dean and Allie's relationship is very sexual, it doesn't take them long to fall for each other, and be sweet even in the middle of all their chaos.
  • love, they both deserve it and this book would be a serious killer (as in you'd be very heartbroken) if there was no HEA.
Warnings: As I've said before this book is about rape and slut shaming girls who are/ have been victims or simply girls who are not afraid to be freely sexual. So please be aware of that. There is no actual rape scene in this book, it almost happens but it is stopped. Again be aware of that if you're sensitive to it.


Despite the fact that I was a little disappointed with this book, I recommend you guys read it, don't let my high expectations through you off of it. Pick this up, it's a book that definitely needs to be read and spoken about all over. Give it a chance because YOU deserve it. It's not really the book that deserves a chance, it's YOU, because it's you that needs to be affected by reading it!

Author Bio


Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance Author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn’t hold back on either one in her writing!



Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.



In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!
