Description

This story centers around a man stalking a woman that he is in love with, and his intent is that she should reciprocate his feelings. There is a scene in which he forces himself on her, but over the course of the story she begins to develop feelings for him. By the end of the story they are in an ostensibly consensual relationship. The male lead spends most of the book tracking down a pedophile ring and human traffickers. There are mentions of rape, sexually violent dark web sites, a scene with dozens of women and girls being held in a warehouse and scenes with other children being kidnapped individually. Though there is no graphic description of what happens to any of these children/women it plays a large part of the plot of the story and is discussed frequently.
