Review: Beg For It by Megan Hart

He’s gonna have to beg for it…

Corinne was young once. She did everything—girls, boys, drugs, toys—and did it in high funky fashion. Reese wasn’t her first lover, but he was the first to submit to her. For a while they had something special, but it ended badly.

She’s a little older now. And the wealthy businessman who just bought the company she works for bears little resemblance to that boy. He’s commanding, domineering, and seems hell-bent on pushing her past her limits.

In a flash of anger, she falls back into their old pattern—and Reese falls right in with her. Before she knows it, she’s testing him. Then tasting him. But she can’t afford to get involved again. Her life is complicated enough without throwing in a slew of kink.

Now if only Reese would stop making her feel like the goddess she used to be…and showing her who’s been the boss all along. Then…and now.

Warning: Contains thousand-dollar, custom-tailored business suits, fuzzy green boots, goth eyeliner, and fishnet sleeves. We’ll let you discover who wears what.

Beg For It by Megan Hart is Corinne and Reese’s love story. They’ve had a past romance back when they were young. They had a relationship where she was Dominant and he submissive. They embraced that their kinks aligned, but then it all fell apart.

After 15 years, Corinne is a divorced mother of two. She’s unhappy with her love life, and looks back to her past always trying to figure out how she let Reese get away. Out of the blue, Reese is back in her life by way of purchasing the dairy business she is CFO for. When Corrine finds out he is behind the buyout, she is livid! After all these years, why is he poking around her neck of the woods?

Reese has never forgotten Corinne or how she made him feel when they were together. He’s been with other women, but no one filled that void. Now that he is a successful self-made billionaire, he jumps at a chance to see her again by buying the company she works for. Maybe toying with her could be fun too.

Megan Hart’s second chance type story is a trope that I usually enjoy, but I had a hard time staying interested in the story. These snippets of before and now give us dual points of view. The back and forth between the past and present took a bit getting used to. Because of that, I don’t think I really connected with either character. When we start out, we have no idea how in the past the past is. I wanted to know more about them as people-then and now, not the person they were in a scene. I also wanted to know more about the time in-between. It seems we never really are given the whole story. When the ending is approaching, I was waiting for both to finally spell out their relationship and what it means to them by saying it. I was very disappointed how it unfolded. I felt like I was left at the top without the bravado of a spectacular ending. It wrapped up way too quick and very matter-of-fact. I wanted dialog and resolution. I was ready for an epilogue that never came. I felt like I was cheated out of it all and it left me unhappy.

I have read other works by Megan Hart and enjoyed them so I figured this was a no-brainer. I did like her spin from the norm by having the female be the dominant one and she also did a great job of expressing their trust in each other while doing a scene. I really wanted to like it more than I did. If you read it, it may work better for you.
