*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.
Review by Lorena
Derision has a little bit of everything. You will get the suspense, the thrill and definitely some sexy, kink and some BDSM all combined together. A "Law Firm" that holds court during the day as a power house firm and then at night you get a whole different kind of play (if you get my drift)!
Alexis started out working as an intern at the law firm. Her goal was to get a promotion as a paralegal to help her brother who suffered from depression and got himself involved with drugs to ease his depression and since she no longer had her parents, she was appointed as his legal guardian. But her brother has disappeared and Alexis doesn't know his whereabouts but she's still concerned and still searching for him.
When Chase stars courting Alexis, he takes her to "The Firm" and tests her and see's if she's worth her being his sub. Alexis is a weakling but she can show her strengths as well and this is the ultimate test for her.
Alexis is a recluse, she doesn't have friends and all she cares about is working and going straight home and do absolutely nothing. She doesn't associate herself with her co-workers and the last thing she wants is to become just like them.
What could possibly have possessed Chase to get so obsessive over her?
While Chase has finally landed Ms. Wilde, they start a Dom/Sub relationship and even though Ms. Wilde is quite the shy and timid girl, she sure has a kink to her as well that surprises me as much as she has surprised Mr. Larkin.
What will this relationship lead to? They have a high profile case to work on and due to this case, things get all out of whack, innocent people get accused, there is betrayal and all sorts of good stuff happening in this book.
While I highly enjoyed it, I loved the plot and the storyline was phenomenal, I thought the heroine was a little weak for my taste when it came to this book. I thought someone with more backbone would have been suited for Ms. Wilde's character.
Don't get me wrong, I still loved this book, it kept me intrigued and guessing throughout the whole story, like WTF, who could have done this and why did they do that....type of stuff (hehe)!
I do recommend it if you like to read dark, suspenseful, intriguing and BDSM all involved together!
