RELEASE DAY REVIEW – Father by Clarissa Wild

Title: Father
Author: Clarissa Wild
Release Date: April 25, 2017

Confess your sin.

People call me Father, but I prefer Frank because I’m the worst preacher you’ll ever meet.
Days spent completely wasted pull a number on you, especially when you’ve got a truckload of baggage that comes with it.
Until this beautiful girl in the back of the church takes my breath away.
…And we end up committing sacrilege in the confessional.
Did I mention I’m filthy?
Bad doesn’t even begin to describe me, and after one taste of what she’s got to offer, I want more.
Too bad having a dirty mind isn’t the only thing we’ve got in common…
Our past is laced with sin.

Author’s Note: This book is not for everyone. It’s raw. It’s vulgar. It’s downright offensive. But it’s oh so damn delicious with a capital D. If you are easily offended or prudish, please don’t read this book. But if you like a bit of humor mixed in with raunchiness and brawling, you’ll love this book.

Clarissa Wild delivers a sizzling, gritty, taboo story with Father. Frank and Laura’s journey was colorful, imaginative and delightfully filthy. Akin to a trainwreck you can’t look away from, the author firmly held my attention from the first page to the last. I enjoyed the dynamic between Frank and Laura. Their opposites attract vibe was heady with sexual tension and leant itself to plenty of terrific and hilarious banter. Clarissa Wild kept me blushing as these two fought to fight the inevitable and eventually gave in to one another completely. With a vibrant cast of secondary characters, Frank and Laura’s world easily came to life. I adored getting to know the various personalities that made this story so surprising. As distinctive as the main couple was, this journey was definitely a group effort.

Frank is no one’s hero and yet somehow Clarissa Wild managed to make me care about this filthy, unapologetic and oftentimes infuriating man. Frank was a bit of a mystery which, when mixed with his obvious heartache and pain, created a measure of undeniable intrigue. I loved how Frank unraveled a bit with Laura, demonstrating a vulnerability that kept me invested, no matter how dirty and disturbing the story became. Laura was pretty much the total opposite of Frank. She was loving, selfless and understanding in a way that was almost divine. I absolutely adored her relationship with Diego and Bruno and the ways in which she repeatedly demonstrated her incredible strength. Laura was the light in this story and the hope she brought to Frank’s screwed up world was undoubtedly the highlight of this novel for me.

Father was every bit the dirty and offensive novel I imagined it to be, but there was so much more that demanded to be discovered as well. Clarissa Wild did a good job weaving together the many layers of this story. There was plenty to explore beneath the overlying romance between Frank and Laura and it was these unexpected pieces of the puzzle that kept me so curious. Admittedly, there were moments where I craved more depth from the characters and a better understanding of the emotions involved, but Father was certainly a fun read. As far as inappropriate and sexy stories go, this is definitely an enjoyable one. Clarissa Wild doesn’t exaggerate and Father absolutely lives up to the warning, so if you’re not down for a gritty, slightly sacrilegious story, then this book probably isn’t for you. If you don’t mind plenty of filthy thoughts, dirty talk and outrageous behavior then be sure to check out Father and brace yourself for Frank’s brand of worship.
