King by T.M. Frazier – 5 STARS
Wow, what a fantastic read! I was honestly starting to get in a reading funk and then I found King by T.M. Frazier. King is a two book series and I usually wait until all books are out before I will start a series. However, I read the summary and I was hooked.
Homeless. Hungry. Desperate.
Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from.
King…a notorious career criminal has just been released from prison. His futures hangs in the balance and Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on you have to first let go.
I just had to read this book to find out what this was all about. I loved the way T. M. Frazier writes. Her story just speaks to you making it such an easy read. She depicts the hard life of abuse, poverty, and criminality. It’s a world I don’t understand and usually reluctant to read about. The novel is dark, but it shines light on life, survival, and love.
“This is just about Preppy and King crawling out of this shit instead of rotting in it”
“King was a bad guy but he was my bad guy. He was more than that. He was my world, My heart.”
I loved King despite the evil things he does. In fact, I didn’t even see him as a bad guy. I just saw that he was dealt a shitty life and he had to learn to survive. Although King did bad things, he really was good person with a heart full of love.
I also felt the love between Doe and King blossomed slowly and beautifully. Preppy and Bear were great side characters. The last 25% of the book gets intense and some very disturbing things happen. There are some definite twists and a cliffhanger that has me anxiously waiting the next book.
“I think a part of me loved Doe from the first moment my eyes landed on hers. Haunted beautiful, scared. I wanted her, body and soul.”
