*Dark erotic standalone that may have triggers

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 posses, 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 stalker 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.


I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

Okay, okay. For anyone who reads this blog: 1, thank you!! and 2, it is no secret that I love Trisha Wolfe. I mean LOVE. I've loved since I read her novella length work Unveiled I think...five years ago? Holy crap. 

I usually struggle with words when writing my reviews for Trisha's books but I think what I just said is a good way to start it out. Holy. Crap. I had a basic idea of what to expect going into this book but was looking forward to seeing Trisha's spin on it. I knew what I expected but what I got was so much more. I wasn't expecting the ties in with her With Ties That Bind series (book one is out and it's amazing.) Of course, since this an erotic standalone, there were sex scenes and damn, they were HOT. Steal my breath away hot. Trisha sure knows how to write these scenes well.

Chase may have been an antihero but I really like him. Sure, I may not have agreed with everything that he did but I still like him. He may have some... extreme tastes but I truly believe he is a good guy. He has boundaries, lines he doesn't cross. Unlike some. 

I like Alexis, as well. She may have come off as weak but in my mind she is anything but. She is a very, very strong woman who has been through a lot. Part of her strength comes in letting her emotions in instead of fighting them as so many of us do. This is, indeed, a type of strength. In addition to this I believe she is more than a worthy "opponent" for Chase, if you catch my drift. ;) I believe they are a good match for each other and I very much enjoyed reading about them. 

In addition to the romance, which of course I love, the suspense was terrific. I love good suspense and this book definitely had a lot of suspense. I got to a certain point in the book and could hardly look up from it. I had to see what happened. 

As always, the writing was beautiful. Trisha has an amazing way of writing that I will never get tired of. Beautiful, contemplative, dark, deep and yet hopeful. I will always want to read her beautifully strung together prose. 

And oh boy, that ending!! Oh my gosh, Trisha, girl, holy crap!! I couldn't believe the book ended there. I wonder if any of these characters will make an appearance somewhere else?? Wouldn't that be something?? ;) As always, I adored this book with every ounce of me and I will always clamor to get my hands on Trisha's next book. An undeniable 5 quills!!
