MAJOR TW: a LOT of non-con/dubious consent and sexual assault

This book was genuinely not for me. I love a good dark romance like most gals but this did way too much even for me. The whole “bully” aspect of the story (essentially the whole storyline) is the mmc assaulting and forcing the fmc to do various sexual acts against her will while she’s literally crying and begging him to stop. He even says multiple times how her fighting him “turns him on even more” and makes him harm her even further. Every male character in this book deserves jail time and I mean that so honestly bc there is so much SA from the male characters (malee las included) that assault the fmc or other women mentioned in the book.
