John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

Howbeit, he would not hearken unto her voice,.... His lust was so inflamed and enraged, that he could not attend to any arguments, though ever so forcible, that were offered to him:

but being stronger than she, forced her, and lay with her; whether she cried out or not, as the law directs in such cases, Deuteronomy 22:25; is not said; she might, and nobody hear her and come to her assistance; or she might not choose to expose her brother to his servants.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

2 Samuel 13:14 Howbeit he would not hearken unto her voice: but, being stronger than she, forced her, and lay with her.

Ver. 14. He forced her, and lay with her.] A double abomination, either of them deserving death; which because David inflicted not on him, God did. Where we may easily see a hand of justice. As David had committed adultery, made Uriah drunk, and then murdered him: so Amnon committeth incest, is made drunk, and then murdered.
