The premise was a set up for a dark romance, and there was definitely a scene at the beginning that was DARK. After that, Calix spent the rest of the book trying to make it up to Anya. It was really DARK and he definitely needed to do some extensive groveling, but in comparison to some of the other stories, it was tame. I firmly believe that Calix did Anya a favor by getting her and her mother out of the family situation she was suffering in (despite being a grown adult living on her own) and then doing his very best to prove his love to her.
Another issue was that the vast majority of the narration was much quieter than any of my other audiobooks. I could barely make out the voices over my car's Bluetooth connection, instead I had to listen with headphones outside of my daily commute. The real problem with this was that the uncle's voice was so loud that it physically hurt my ears a couple of times. Maybe this was because his general personality is that of an angry man, but even when he wasn't actively being angry (which I don't think being loud is the only option for portraying) I felt like I was getting yelled at and unable to hear the other half of the dialogue at the same time.

narrator = imagine granny reading porn to you.
Rapey jerk who has no redeeming qualities rapes screaming virgin, in a tantrum fit. (as read to you in detail by grandma. )
I stopped a chapter six in between laughter and horror at grandma.
