Publisher's Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Clarissa Wild comes a new off-the-charts novel that will make you feel filthier than ever...

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 audiobook 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, please don't listen to this audiobook. But if you like a bit of humor mixed in with raunchiness and brawling, you'll love this audiobook.

Freaking amazing

I had read the book when it was released and I remember saying 'wow this author knows how to write'. I remember being consumed by the book and loving it from the first page till the last.... Now I am beyond words.... I think Clarissa Wild had an amazing book now along with this narrator they took the book to new levels.
I love how much he is in the book. He lives it, breathes it. He is Frank the Preacher.
This book was dark and twisted already but now... Wow..... Wow!
A totally new experience!!!!!

Loved This Book

I read the book first but listening to it was a whole other experience that I loved. The Narration was amazing Gregory Sutton has outdone himself snd it was more like watching a movie in yiur head than listening to a book.

Welcome to Clarissa Wild's Father. When I first read the description of this book I was so curious but I said a prayer that God wouldn't strike me dead for reading this book. I'm happy to report I'm still here though I did duck a time or two waiting to be struck. It's okay to laugh I did because sometimes I just way overthink things.

People call Frank Father but he will tell you hes a preacher. The worst preacher ever too. He spends his days most of the time at the local bar getting smashed. Come to think of it he rarely doesn't have a liquor bottle in his hand. Frank has some seriously messed up baggage that he carries around and he just can't quiet figure out why exactly it is that God keeps him around on this earth. Enter a girl who takes Franks breath away and makes him feel for the first time in ages. Laura though has some serious baggage and huge secrets just like Frank and neither one of them are sharing those secrets. There just sharing some pretty steamy stuff in the confessional and the altar of the church!! EEEP!! Yep, you guessed it I ducked during these parts too. Oh and did I mention that Frank if a very very dirty boy. He will cause your kindle to melt.

I really enjoyed this book. Don't be afraid to take a chance. I made it though and I am a God fearing walking the straight and narrow the best that I can kind of gal. I would be lying if I didn't tell you my mouth was hanging open a few times and I literally did duck during one part of this but you have to read to understand Frank the preacher. He is not ordained and there is a reason he is a preacher. I loved trying to figure out everything there was to figure out in this book. I got the one part but boy oh boy I did not see the secret Laura was holding onto coming from a mile a way.

As always Clarissa Wild has taken me for a ride on the dark side and I loved every single second of this book.

A sinful story of retribution and hunger

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend for any Audio listeners who enjoy a slightly dark and taboo story

What other book might you compare Father to and why?

As always Clarissa Wild brings dark and taboo to a whole new level!
Setting aside for the moment the absolutely sinful delights that make Father Frank the man we all crave and the reason this story is a tad taboo
Let's talk about the story itself
It is truly intricate and poignant - Wild leads reader's on a journey that twists the reader's ardent need for retribution to a whole new level
Frank and Laura are two souls who are thrown into a mixed up pot of half-truths and unknowns only to discover everything they believed and the reasons they hated were fabrications and their true strength lie in their love for another - but is it too late for them to find redemption?

Have you listened to any of Gregory Sutton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I enjoy Sutton's narration - He is able to flawlessly submerge the listener into the story, - allowing us to connect with the characters and live out the scenes

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would absolutely love to have the time to listen to an audio book in one sitting - though realistically for me that is impossible

One Reason to go Back to Church

This is one of my favorite reads of 2017!

If you are easily offended by sexual desecration of sacred ground, you may want to pass on this but if you are looking for a hot, steamy somewhat taboo read, you have found it in Father.

For those of you who may have wandered from your church, Father Frank will make you want to return to the fold. He is a classic hot alpha male, bad boy who happens to be a preacher with a dark and painful past looking for salvation. Laura is living in the shadow of her family, taking care of her two brothers struggling with her desires and looking for absolution. The heat between them is palpable. Their connection, inevitable.

The narrator has a nice smooth voice but, when the situation called for it, his intonation rings a bit sarcastic and not as sensual or emotional or serious as I would have liked. He might be better for a mystery or a rom-com.

Forgive me father...

Any additional comments?

Oh. My. Gosh. **wipes sweat from brow** Is it hot in here? It's definitely hot in here.

This audiobook is AWESOME. Clarissa Wild delivers a fan-freakin-tastic story, and like all of her other audiobooks, the narrator most definitely delivers a stellar performance.

I definitely recommend checking this out.

Father

Clarissa Wild tells the story of a pastor who has lost his way and the road he takes to redemption. Frank has been disillusioned by life and becomes careless and somewhat stagnant in performing his duties as a man of God. He falls victim to doubt and self castigation until he meets Laura who soothes his restless soul. Their relationship is fraught with complications and unexpected revelations but they eventually get their HEA! Gregory Sutton does a great job narrating!

Very poorly written

Quite disappointing. You don’t expect a masterpiece, but you don’t expect lazy trash either. Come on.

Different from what I thought

It's hard to admit but I really liked the book. I thought the narrator's voice was fantastic. The sexual content was a bit crude but it fit with the story. I loved Frank. He drank and smoked and cursed, but also believed in the lord. He just had to be reminded of his faith after what happened to his son & wife. I loved how he always had a good heart. Helping out Ricardo & Carl. The love he always had for Margaret. It took me longer to listen to it than it normally would have due to the holidays.

HOWEVER

This was definitely an exciting read: great, interesting story with well thought out character development. So many surprises along the way as if Clarissa Wild were slowly unfolding an entire world for the readers. The writing is saucy and thrilling, and "fuck me" it was sexy. I think all listeners are due some confessions after listening. The narrator, Gregory Sutton is perfect and gives each character their own identity and personality. I really felt like I was listening to a pro story teller and fantastic actor. Very interesting to hear a male take on characters of different gender, backgrounds, ages, all written by a female. The narrator shifted so easily from tender Father Frank to a more aggressive and sex dominating Frank, to sweet siren Laura, to young, inquisitive Bruno and to rough El Campion (to name a few). I am in awe at how Sutton carried dialogue that balanced between conversational and also during saucy, intimate scenes. very hot stuff, excellent listen. "fuck me"

Darkish romance. 1POV. HEA. Standalone

This is a darkish romance. It is a sizzling story and if having sex in a church offends you.... this book isn’t for you.
