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!!!!!

Over dramatic.

My goodness, I love both narrators but seriously too much drama the female narrator was way to annoying for me, dear writer please make your characters more tolerable and less stupid while handling fictional problems. I mean seriously I think you can do better. Dear female narrator I hope you found being so annoying made you hate yourself for putting up with it.

Perfect! I love the narrator's deep voice!

I just LOVED this book! Clarissa Wild brings us on such a naughty story! Wild tells a well written story that you will fly through! This was such a taboo story… not as dark as some of her more recent ones. Still, I enjoyed it immensely! I didn't expect the story to have thriller/suspense elements so I was pleasantly surprised by that.

I loved the characters and would love more from all of them. Oh man, oh man… those naughty bits were ah-mazing! I mean yowzas! HOT! The writing and descriptions were just on point! I love Wild’s writing. I mean, I could feel my checks flame with some blushing hearing Gregory Sutton's deep voice saying them to me!

Father is a story of a man going back full circle righting the wrongs of his past. It would appeal to readers looking for a taboo read with a dash of humor. Sutton's voice is on point with the Father. It was as if this book was written for him! I love the humor that Wild sneaks in!

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.

Hot dreams

Any additional comments?

I had already read this book so I knew what the story was about. I have to say reading and listening to this book are different experiences. I usually listen to my audio book s either while I'm driving or my eyes are tired from reading. I knew I didn't want to listen to this with my mother(she would have fainted). So I listened to this at night OMG talk about hot dreams all night. Book or audio i still love this story and this amazing author.

Well. I never.

Well. I never. No wonder people are going crazy with this book! Frank is one sexy, dirty kind of man. At first, I didn't know how I would feel, considering he a supposed-preached. But pushing that aside, this was an interesting read/listen. Gregory Sutton did an epic job narrating. I could definitely see the book as a movie in my head. There's not female narrator since its only in Frank's perspective. But it was still good.

Forgive me Father, I sinned... a lot

I read this ebook so I jumped at the chance to listen to the audio as soon as I could. I was NOT disappointed in any way. Not only was the story just as good as when I read it but Gregory Sutton did a fantastic job with the narration. I have never felt so dirty but so in love with a book all at once. 5 stars Gregory! You deserve it. Never again will I look at a preacher the same way. And confessionals... well those could be fun with the right person. If you haven't picked up an audiobook by Clarissa Wild yet start with this one. Not only is the storyline amazing but the characters are hot, humorous and so down to Earth.
