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.
Derision by Trisha Wolfe was a tantalizing read to say the least. It goes deeply in to the dark desires of the world of S & M, as well as giving us a storyline that takes place in a law firm dealing with the case of an accused rapist. The main character, Alexis Wilde, is working as an intern in the office of Lark and Gannet. She is very meek, and others tend to walk all over her. Alexis is attracted to one of the partners of the law firm, Chase Lark. Little does she know, but she has captured his attention, and he can't stop the growing obsession that she has sparked in him. Chase is a dominant, and when he observes Alexis, he realizes that she is a true submissive; something that is rare and priceless in his world. His business partners end up putting Chase into a position where he is forced to claim her, or else risk one of them taking the woman he desires. When Alexis gets pulled into Chase's orbit, she has no idea what she has gotten herself in to. Chase teaches her about S & M, and is able to give her all that she could ever need. However, a dark cloud hangs over their shoulders, and neither could have anticipated that danger was right in their path.... Derision hooked me at the beginning when Alexis found herself in peril, and all I could do was wonder how she had gotten in the present position, and who was responsible for her sadistic torture. This story was quite the page turner, and I was in suspense the whole way through! At the beginning, Chase's preference for Alexis' humiliation bothered me and took me out of my comfort zone. I didn't think that I was going to like him very much. However, as he grew to truly care about and then love Alexis, and changed his tactics; I ended up caring about him. While Alexis appeared weak at the beginning, Ms. Wolfe, did an excellent job of showing us how she could be submissive and strong, meek and powerful. The dynamic in S & M was very informative, entertaining, and interesting. This story ended in such a way, that it closed some major plot points, while leaving room for a sequel. I certainly hope that Ms. Wolfe continues Alexis and Chase's story.
I give, Derision, by Trisha Wolfe, 4 Pleasurable Pain, Domination & Submission, Shattered Barriers, Deceit and Danger Filled Stars!
