“The firm had a gym, and one day Alice, who they’d made a partner because there was no way not to, came in and took her clothes off.” And that wasn’t all.
Ten highly intelligent, erotically charged linked short stories set in a top New York law firm, Partners explores the intrigue, sexual politics, romance and misbehaviour that absorb alpha male and alpha female practitioners as much as winning the next client or the next case.
With characters like Miriam, a distinguished judge with a provocative imagination, romantic Thomas, lordly Henry and non-conformist Millie, Partners exposes the private lives of lawyers as never seen before.
In an era where erotic fiction often means pulp fiction, Partners brings intelligence and sophistication to the genre. Written with a knowing and elegant style by Melbourne based Harrison Young, the characters are passionate, human, flawed, and sexual. The female characters are smart, strong and empowered. This is not a tale of Cinderellas meeting their prince, but sassy consenting adults.
As quoted in the Financial Review “would you read erotic fiction from a director of the Commonwealth Bank?”
Women On Boards Chair, Ruth Medd said “Partners: Love is a Law Unto Itself by Harrison Young should be listed under all Essential Reading lists”.
American born and Harvard educated Harrison Young has had a remarkable investment banking career spanning more than thirty years.
