Ummm well only going by what’s here in the op but let’s play this scenario out: Victim: I want to give you a copy of my book Perp: sure, I’m pretty busy but come over to my hotel to drop it off Victim: ok no prob Perp: but you’ve gotta come to my room I don’t want my coworkers to see us together. Victim: ummm why? I’m just giving you a book. I’ll meet you in the lobby Perp: no you gotta come to my room Victim: no thanks, I’ll just not give you the book then. There is no reasonable explanation that the girl didn’t expect some sort of sexual advance by secretly going to his room in order to avoid witnesses. If it was a normal interaction they would have met in the lobby or the restaurant and exchanged the book. She must have expected something (not saying she deserved to be assualted in any way shape or form, or that it didn’t happen!), but I am saying that the situation as described in the article makes no sense for adults expecting a normal interaction aka exchanging a gift. My guess is that they were having an affair but it ended either at that “book exchange” or previously, probably she broke it off, and then he tried to force it. An assault very likely occurred I’m not doubting the victim here, I’m saying the story in the op is clearly BS in some way. Don’t ban me.
