Willing Victim

Flynn and Laurel #1


A re-release of the 2010 fan favorite, with light revisions throughout plus a beefed-up ending.

For the past couple years Laurel's been coasting, hiding in the backseat while her life drifts off course. Then one summer afternoon a tall, built bruiser named Flynn strides in and steers her straight into an infatuation she never saw coming.

Flynn introduces Laurel to things she’s never imagined before—to the violent but exciting realm of the underground boxing circuit, to rough sex and even rougher role-playing, and to an attraction she craves even as it intimidates her. As Flynn invites her deeper into his world and his life, Laurel has to make a choice—let fear keep her holed up where it’s safe, or take a chance and fight for the man who makes her feel more alive than she’d dreamed possible.

Reader Advisory: This book contains consensual but intense rape role-playing scenes that some may find upsetting.


"The story[…]so cleverly and authentically voiced many of the insecurities and the emotional highs and lows of meeting someone and falling in love. The story was hot, the authorial voice was great, and I look forward to more McKenna stories."
—Dear Author

"The role playing was so intense and so erotic that I felt as if each caress, each order, each taste was for me alone… If you like hard-edged, hot, spicy, tantalizing erotic romances with a domineering and succulent man as the lead you will enjoy this hot number as well."
—Coffee Time Romance

"Deftly drawn. Willing Victim came out a few years before Fifty Shades of Grey, and in many ways it’s the exact inverse of E.L. James’s erotic phenomenon. Kink, here, is not evidence of a problem to be solved."
