her fears her wants her hopes her turmoil She’s everything an 18 year girl is—full of complex feelings and desires a blend of childishness and maturity that is on the cusp of true confidence and ownership of self—but she is also so much a survivor a fighter a dreamer someone who expects the worst but deep down wishes and hopes for the best I loved Lila Not once did I feel unsatisfied with her character; I could understand her very well and thought she was a great choice of a heroineThis is where Aleksey comes in; he’s actually super well written too He embodies the “alpha male” archetype but in a way that removes him entirely from being abusive He heavily values consent is open and forthcoming about his wants with Lila and the constructs of their relationship as it progresses from sexual connection to deep romantic love so for example he doesn’t lie to her about wanting a romantic relationship with her at first and is honest about wanting to be just about a sexual connection and human touch doesn’t blame Lila for her PTSD or try to force or coerce her into doing something she doesn’t want to is willing to fulfill the things Lila needs in order to have with him like consent trust and understanding and always has a firm control over himself with Lila so he doesn’t hurt her—even accidentally He’s not perfect of course he’s suffering from a kind of emotional ignorance and detachment from his hard life but he slowly learns with Lila and becomes better and better with how to love her and express it just like how Lila slowly becomes better at trusting and being comfortable with sexual intimacy after her ordeals and fears Although one thing I want to address is that Aleksey’s kink is rape roleplay or as the book calls it “consensual non consent”; which while like Lila that makes me personally a little uncomfortable just because the nature of this is a little complex to define in terms of morality and when it goes to far or is no longer safehealthy I think the author handles this in a good way by having Aleksey understand the boundaries of it and that he has to be aware of his partner’s feelings and be sensitive to when consent is withdrawn or a line is drawn If this was just your average story I’d say it was unnecessary to add in but usually the people who have this kink and who are very clear about the boundaries of it either exist in a society that warps sex or they have had a traumatic experience with sexual assault; for example survivors of rape often engage in rape roleplaying because it’s a way for them to regain a sense of control over their bodies and cope with their trauma though it can manifest in other people for other reasons While we’re not given a backstory of how Aleksey got this kink I’d say it’s safe to assume it manifested from the world he’s in and the things he’s seen much like how Lila’s voyeurism developed as a result of seeing others get raped and is her coping mechanismAlso there’s a seven year age gap between our leads but since we’re in a situation where Lila wasn’t really allowed to be like your average teenager and mature at her own pace she is presented as a much mature and competent person than what we see in your average contemporary novel I’m not being as harsh as I’d usually be Yes she’s 18 but generally a 25 year old is a lot mature and experienced so this creates a power imbalance which is a problem In this case even though Aleksey is experienced and mature he doesn’t present anything in his behavior that speaks that he would abuse this gap in power and Lila is intelligent and experienced enough to not easily fall prey to being in that situation or be the kind of person someone would target if they had such power abusing tendencies in mindWe get to watch their relationship develop slowly understand their individual feelings their turmoil and we see how them opening up to each other deepens and intensifies their connection with one another as it grows from one thing into another so you get a feel that this relationship is real and legitimate making it uite a realist romance that speaks to readers on deep levels all while the story somehow makes time to be a platform for discussion and thought regarding the morals of relationships and sex and autonomy at the same time as this epic story of dealing with emotions and sexual desire between two people not uite sure how to merge the two work to find the answers together one clumsy step at a timeAs for the writing the author does a superb job The style was simple yet heartfelt and appropriate to the setting The messages are coherently conveyed the story soundly weaved the characters very well fleshed out and outside of a few errors in my Kindle edition I could find no grievous flaw to the prose Thumbs up from meAll in all if you aren’t very sensitive to the topics surrounding rape and aren’t triggered by the topic easily this is a great read that’s as eually moving for the heart as it thought provoking for the intellect Though since the book contains a lot of mature subject matter and a few detailed sex scenes I would definitely say this is new adult though I think perhaps it’d be worthwhile to have a mature 16 or 17 year old read it because it has such a healthy romancerelationship and offers very sound good messages regarding some very sensitive issues that are paramount to your average young person and young women especially I wrote this kind of fast right before heading out somewhere so I’ll likely return to it at a later date to proofread and maybe add some stuff All in all five star book Thanks for the recommendation Veronica

Should she try with different guys or should she accept Aleksey’s proposal and his “uirks”? Justify your answer What would you do if it was you the one in danger of being taken by the soldiers if you don’t lose your virginity first? That’s the basic premise Lila is 18 and wants to lose her virginity and feel at least for once that she’s safe in the sexual department There are a lot of events some violent some funny some sweet that all revolve around Lila’s basic need of connecting to another person through sex This will save her from recruitment AKA rapeI love the romance the messages the poems between chapters the world building I can explain the Second civil war as well as I can explain the first one I stayed up late last night to finish this book and I’m captivated Perhaps it’s because I’ve had my own story with the theme of this book but I love it I think that only a handful of new adult authors can handle the topic well and make it heart wrenching romantic entertaining and thought provoking without making it preachy nor boring Mya Robarts is one of those authors She delivers a story that keeps the reader laughing raging hating loving thinking cringing applauding and when it ends you are free to take the messages with you as food for thought or think about this book as a love story A brutal love story but romantic nonethelessThe V Girl contains graphic scenes that might shock some readers but let me assure you that this graphicness is reserved to consensual acts of sex and a horrible depiction of torture Although rape is a reality in this world we don’t get to witness it We know it from backstory and the way the author showed us the feelings of the characters Lila’s fears became mine as I was reading and that’s to the credit of the world building and writing The prose is simple unadorned straight to the point and that makes the situations believable Even the romanceAs far as the dystopian genre goes this isn’t the typical story where the circumstances are tweaked to make the protagonist the leader No rebels no special powers no arms are handled to the protagonist in a silver plate so she’ll lead the rebel forces against the oppressive government Lila will find that if she has to lead a rebellion she’ll have to1 learn how to drive in a place where this is forbidden for her people2 stir her gang to become stronger because they suck3 Learn to fight with her own hands because the guns of her resistance gang are primitive4 Become a leader herself when she would prefer not to become one But the current leader of the rebellion sucks at itThis is refreshing Not every YA dystopia or like NA dystopia character has to be Katniss nor Tris Katniss struggled to become a leader but still she got people eager to make her a symbol and Tris didn’t seem to find any difficulty in getting guns Lila will have to learn how to use everyday objects as guns and will have to do what she can to become stronger I admire her so much because of this If it were me I wouldn’t want to go out of my house ever I'd live in hidingAleksey is fantastic I could predict from the first chapter that he’d be a love interest but other than that I couldn’t see where the relationship would go You'll find what I'd call an I want to use you triangle here Lila wants to use her best friend but she doesn’t want a relationship with Rey nor anyone Rey the best friend wants to save Lila “from sin” but he wants to be in love with his dead ex fiancé forever and Aleksey wants to deflower Lila but he doesn’t think he’s capable of love and he knows he won’t be around for her Aleksey doesn’t want to fall in love but he will and that is one of my favorite parts of this bookIn terms of steamy scenes I think that they were well written and sexy Some are rough some are sweet some are graphic but all are realistic and vital to the plot or the overall message of the book I enjoyed them allFor example this uoteWhy does it have to hurt only me?It’s true Why sexuality is always difficult for women than for men? Not fair But as I said the messages are there hidden between the characters actions if you want to see them but if you don’t this is still a very compelling story of fighting for love and against loveI recommend this book to 17 plus readers because some topics here are disturbing but any reader that can handle the heavy subject will enjoy the book Read this if you want something different
