The Beast by Jalen Wilkes was recently banned from Amazon. From what I am seeing it was for reasons along the lines of the book “glorifying rape or sexual abuse”.
This book has been in my TBR pile for a few days, but after seeing that the author has been personally targeted and her book reported and banned, I thought I would post this to get the news out that The Beast is Back, it’s the least we here at SROKK could do.
So, first, head to one of the links (below) and BUY NOW! Then Share the news and links around, let’s get The Beast back on everyone rader.
Something from the author about her book being banned.
So yes, this is considered a “dark erotic romance,” and yes, there are some horrible things discussed in the course of the story.I think most people got it though, that it’s not glorifying abuse or rape, it’s glorifying surviving these events.
It’s about letting people know that even if you have been abused, or raped, or gone through sexual trauma…you are still allowed to enjoy dirty sex.
You were raped and still love being held down and fucked hard? There’s nothing wrong with that. It doesn’t mean you are broken or messed in the head or deserved to be raped the first time.
You were molested and enjoy Daddy role playing? Don’t let anyone tell you that you are sick, or a freak, or that the events in your past are controlling you.
If you have been damaged somehow, survived it, and continue to thrive…this is your story. Your sexuality is about you, not about what happened to you…it is all you. Enjoy your kink, enjoy your smut, and never let anyone tell you that you need to be healed if you like it a little more crooked then the norm.
Define your own normal, and write yourself that happily ever after.
☆ WARNING ☆
This is a classified as a dark erotic novel. It deals with some pretty heavy themes. It may trigger those who have experience sexual abuse, rape, violence, basically a shitty childhood or life in general. I must be kind of messed in the head, because I thought it was a touching story full of amazing imagery and people with hearts that continue to beat and seek the beauty in the world in spite of life grinding them into nothingness. Apparently some early reviewers have found mainly the darker elements, so consider this your warning, for what it’s worth. This is not a fairy tale, this is what happens when the music ends and life goes on after the credits roll. This is about simply existing until you find yourself and write your own happily ever after, no matter what form it takes.
Dimitri Sokolov is a man scarred, physically and emotionally. From the rough streets of Moscow to the highest ranks in the Solntsevskaya Bratva, he has seen it all. An attack four years ago left him disfigured and in seclusion, hiding from reactions to his appearance and in safety from those who failed to kill him the first time.
Comfortable in his penthouse, managing his billion dollar businesses, he’s resigned himself to be alone, simply called The Beast among those who’ve dealt with him in the past.
Columbia Grey is a pseudo-activist trying to save her neighbourhood from a developer intent on levelling it to build apartment towers. She goes along with a plan to confront the CEO of the company on his own turf, to force him to listen to her demands…all in a pathetic attempt to impress a man she barely likes.
Little does she know, she’s taken herself into the mouth of the beast, a man familiar with death and destruction, sex and seduction, a man used to getting exactly what he wants and a man with nothing left to lose.
She’s a beauty, but will that be enough to tame the beast and save her life?
This is not a fairy tale, this is what happens when the music ends and life goes on after the credits roll. This is about simply existing until you find yourself and write your own happily ever after, no matter what form it takes.
