A Willful Woman…

Thoughts about books from a romance addict.


on September 7, 2015

I’m kinda/sorta reading Asking for It by Lilah Pace — which is to say, I started it, skimmed, read the end, and found that interesting enough that I want to go back and read the parts I skipped, in my copious spare time. This is just a random thought about the hero’s name: Jonah. It’s not at all the name you’d associate with a dark hero, is it, even one whose darkness is always fully consensual? Sounds like a sweet kind of guy, doesn’t it?

It may just be the author likes the name, but I wonder if it was actually a very clever bit of naming. Because the sweet guy is who Jonah should have grown up to be, if life hadn’t fucked with him.

    Interesting observation. There is a certain innocence about that name, isn’t there?

    I think the J names are very evocative. Of what exactly I’m not sure but still…

Got something to say?
