ABOUT THE BOOK
Here at Lark and Gannet, you’ll work directly under the partners, being groomed by the most powerful, all-male partnership to handle an exclusive clientele. While within The Firm, your level of training goes deeper, requiring more…varied tasks, which you’re obligated to perform to your Master’s pleasing.
Are you nervous? You should be. Chase Larkin has chosen you to be his submissive.
Alexis Wilde, will you submit?
All I wanted was to save my brother. Something my parents failed to do—and then, I failed him also. As an introvert, getting ahead in the cutthroat law firm required a level of ego stroking I didn’t possess, and that meant my talents were overlooked. Until Chase Larkin noticed me.
My erotic fantasy come to life, Chase is all powerful, all man, all dominant. In one night, he changed my life irrevocably. Now I’m ruined, destined to crave him forever. His scent. His taste. His brutal touch…
If I never followed him to his office that night, then none of this would’ve happened. A serial rapist on the prowl. Our lives in jeopardy. And only a moment—one pivotal moment—to decide our fate. His life or mine.
*This is a full length, standalone dark romance with an antihero that may trigger uncomfortable feelings for the reader. The court proceedings are centered around a rape case. Although there is no onscreen rape in this book, there are instances of rough sex and violent debasement for the main character.
It has been so long since I’ve been this enthralled by a story and its characters. It was so difficult putting it down to get life’s mundane tasks taken care of. All I wanted was more of Chase Larkin and Alexis Wilde.
Chase’s dominance was palpable from the get go. He owned it and demonstrated it every moment of his life. He was sexy and powerful and sexy. Did I say sexy? He was…so, so sexy.
Alexis Wilde was the epitome of introverted. She’s lived her life in the shadows. Doing what was expected of her and keeping out of everyone’s way. But a decision to try advancement at her place of employment puts her in everyone’s sights and Chase’s only play for protecting her was to claim her. And CLAIM he did. Oh my gosh, was it hot and steamy and arousing.
It has been too long since a book made me feel that much. I was Alexis. I felt every touch. Every word in this story made everything tangible for me. There was no power struggle between Alexis and Chase. She owned her submission just as much as Chase owned his dominance. They TRULY were a perfect match.
With Chase’s guidance, I was able to see Alexis’s transformation. She learned the true power of her submission and it gave her strength to be the woman that Chase always knew she could be.
This story will grip you and hold on tight until the end.
Being with Chase—even for the short time that I have—has suspended my internal clock. Days feels like years, minutes like days, seconds like hours. I can’t accurately compare it to anything I’ve ever experienced, as I’ve never experienced anything or anyone like him before.
I’ve watched him at a distance for a year, as an observer, fantasizing. Longing. Desiring…but never once confusing my reality with expectation. He was just like a fictional character. I was under no delusion that I’d ever become a part of his reality.
The moment he touched me, I changed. There was no impact on him; I absorbed the shock. I’m also under no delusion that I am anything more to him than what he desires for me to be.
I am his object of derision.
I am his.
And the glimpses he gives me beneath his rigid exterior is enough to sustain me. Like last night. I’m as equally aroused by his brutal touch as I am by his tender caress. I crave his harsh declarations just as I desire to hear his whispered confessions.
If you’re to love someone, love them wholly. You can’t break them down into pieces. Compartmentalizing. Trying to puzzle a person into the perfect, ideal someone. If I belong to Chase, then I belong to the monster as much as I do the man.
I’m just unsure of which one will finally break me.
