In my story, the protagonist is raped by the villain and he finds himself wanting justice, if not revenge. However, I was told by a couple of readers that they did not buy it, saying that it's not enough motive for revenge. Especially since the protagonist is a cop, and his career would desensitize him and toughen him up to an extent. Plus they said, they only see him being pushed that far, if he has had a history of being abused, or if something happened in his past that would trigger it. But one rape only, is not enough on his own, when the rest of his life seems okay. Rape victims do not seek revenge, and it realistically never happens, one of them said. Do you think that's true, and he needs a different motivation or at least needs to take the story in a different direction, since his victimization might not push him in that direction particularly? What do you think?
