AUTHOR: Clarissa Wild
RELEASE DATE: October 7th
Take what you want. Claim it. Own it. Never let go.
Playboy Jaret Paxon has no pride. He’s filthy as fuck, and he doesn’t care. He’s got it all… Expensive cars, a luxurious home, and a killer smile. Flirting with girls at local clubs, his money gets him whatever he desires. Tight pussy around hungry cock. Night after night. Life is good.
Except it’s all a lie.
Wealth. Love. A family. Education. None of it is real. Jaret’s life is broken. Fucking makes him forget.
Until Lin, the only girl who understood him, stumbles back into his life. One kiss rekindles the sparks from long ago. Jaret wants her back, but he’s not the only one who screwed up. Dating the wrong guy got Lin into trouble. Now that Jaret’s in the middle, someone’s out for blood.
Lies turn into shame. Shame becomes pride. And when Jaret’s proud of something, he won’t let go without a fight.
Filthy is a novella in the Fierce series, featuring Jaret's story. Stand Alone. No Cliffhanger. Complete at 16500 Words
Her eyebrows draw together. “What are you afraid of? If you’re worried that you’ll hurt me, trust me when I say I know how to handle rough boys.”
I cock my head and smile. “Oh really? You think rough is what describes me the best?”
Her lips curl up into a smile as well. “You tell me. How rough can it get? I’m curious …”
Squinting, I take a step forward. “Does kitchen-table-banging sound familiar to you?”
She grins. “Go on …”
I take another step. “How about hair-pulling?”
“Now you’re talking!”
I set my drink down on the table and place my flat hands on the top, leaning in. “You’re crazy.”
“Just as crazy as you then.”
“What happened to your pride, Lin?”
“I threw it out the window. Screw pride. Screw everything. Screw you.”
“What?” I chuckle.
She bites her lip, sucking it gently. Fuck me, I want to do the same to her lip. “I mean it. I want to screw you.”
I laugh. “This is so not you.”
“No, I know,” she grins again, “but I like it.”
“Why?” I purse my lips, inching ever closer. I can’t stop myself. Every fucking pore in my body tells me I should grab her and never let go; that I should fuck her until the night ends and the sunlight shows me that she is still as beautiful as she was the day before. Lin was always that girl, the girl I could never have again, the girl I was never worthy of. The girl I came to love.
I've really been looking forward to reading Jaret's story. I would have never pictured him with a girl like Lin, but once I saw them together I realized they worked. The story is hot, explosive, and entertaining. It's starts off at a high point and never slows down.
I really felt like I read this in no time. It may be a novella, but it's wonderfully developed. Jaret was the same a-hole I thought he was, but it was nice to see a softer side to him and him trying to redeem himself. I liked Lin too, although the adage, "Pride goes before a fall," really applied to her. I found it hard to wrap my head around the fact not asking for help led her to her predicament.
There were a couple of twists I didn't see coming and they had my heart in my throat. In the end, Jaret's story is Filthy, but in a hot and good way. I liked seeing a glimpse of Hunter and Autumn. I do hope Clarissa writes Jessies's story next. He's due for some a woman to rock his world and I'm ready for it!
