She closed her eyes tight, knowing she'd tell him the truth. "I'm afraid you might want something I don't want to give. Not like I'm all that but, well, you are a man." Men only wanted two things in the end -- sex, and to give pain.
"Ah...you think I'm going to ask you for sex? Though I find you intriguing on so many levels and the most beautiful woman I've ever met, I won't ask you for anything you're not willing to give. I believe no means no. I won't force a woman to do anything."
Julien works as a private investigator with his three brothers. He has had an eye on Adara since the day he hired her. Julien knows that something is going on with Adara's life, he's just not sure what.
Adara is fragile, quiet, and keeps to herself. Her life has been terrible since her parents died when she was 15 years old. Adara is anxiously waiting for her 21st birthday so she can be free of the monsters and hide her existence from the world.
Some things in the book were hard for me to believe but overall I enjoyed the storyline. Carnal Beginnings is fast-paced, has some twists, and keeps the reader guessing. This does have a HEA!
Warning: This book does contain rape, long term abuse, and violence.
