Sadly with media today, explicit context is more accessible than ever to a younger audience. I think it depends on the readers maturity, if the book makes them uncomfortable then they can put it down. Parents can't monitor all the content their child has access to and it's up to the young reader to discuss explicit scenes in the novel with their parents to develop a better understanding.

Honestly, I was reading romance books as a sophomore in High school. If a teenager is genuinely interested in a book, they are going to read it. I am 25 now and have no inclination to let my kids do that, but I know if they choose to they will do so one way or another. I would rather know about what they are reading, than have them hide it from me. This book I would not let my kids read at 15 years old.

The sex was so graphic and so frequent, this book should have been given the adult tag.
