He was about to take Julie against her will. Having her body would not be the same as having her heart and mind, but Don didn't realize it at the time.
Obsession takes on terrifying form in Anthony V. Aqua's The Predator. This sexually explicit cat-and-mouse game will take readers into the mind of a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
Don Ricci is handsome, rich...and a psychopath. After a humiliating rejection by Julie, an old classmate, he kidnaps her at knifepoint and locks her away in a homemade dungeon.
Determined to make Julie into his idealized version of the perfect "wife," Don's violently sexual encounters with his traumatized captor are interrupted only by his intermittent carousing around town.
As his tempter spirals out of control, Don runs into more and more trouble both in and out of his underground lair. His erratic behavior eventually brings him to Black Jack Roma, a grizzled veteran of the New England mafia who assumes Don is there to silence him for good.

THE BOOKISH DAME REVIEWS :
This is not the type of book I generally read or review, but this one is starting to go viral, and I wanted to bring it to you. Like "Shades of Grey," Anthony V. Aqua's "The Predator" is a shocker. It stands out in a unique way. It is more than risqué, it's downright explicit sexual material; more so than any book I've ever read. But, it's completely un-put-downable! People have commented they are compelled to keep reading.
Dedicated to those who have been kidnapped and held hostage, and those who have been sex slaves, it gives an eye-opening glimpse into the heart and mind of a predator and psychopath. It's not a beautiful story, but it's more realistic than any I've read in my life.
The book is fraught with the type of violence that only those connected with criminals would know to be an every day matter. It's stuff that will absolutely shock you to read. While Mr. Aqua swears he has no connection to the mob and never has, it is difficult to believe when you read this book! Amazing chapters, and such fine, descriptive writing in some places, you feel you're watching a movie.
The weakness in the book is that Mr. Aqua is a new author, so there are some obvious loose points and less intriguing sections. These are easily over looked in the long run.
This isn't one for everyone, and I hesitate to recommend it. I'm just letting you know it's out there. I suspect it will become a cult novel fast. If you have the stomach for something sexually explicit and violent that's about the mafia, you might like to give it a try.... Warning!!
