I actually quite liked this in a trashy thriller kind of way until I read the sequel. While Stockholm Syndrome (Is there a more fascinating psychological phenomenon than Stockholm Syndrome?

It is genuinely upsetting, and waaaaaaay too long. It could easily be 30% shorter.Trigger warning: Basically don't read this if you have any triggers at all. Just don't do it. The protagonist is repeatedly raped and at one point gets put in a coma for a month because she was so brutally beaten. Seriously, don't do it.
