Bowtie...'till I DIE.

Samuel Clearwater, A.K.A Preppy, likes bowties, pancakes, suspenders, good friends, good times, good drugs, and a good f*ck.


He’s worked his way out from beneath a hellish childhood and is living the life he’s always imagined for himself. When he meets a girl, a junkie on the verge of ending it all, he’s torn between his feelings for her and the crippling fear that she could be the one to end the life he loves.

Andrea ‘Dre’ Capulet is strung out and tired.

Tired of living for her next fix. Tired of doing things that make her stomach turn. Tired of looking in the mirror at the reflection of the person she’s become. Just when she decides to end it all, she meets a man who will change the course of both their lives forever.

And their deaths.

For most people, death is the end of their story.
For Preppy and Dre, it was only the beginning…

T.M. Frazier's King series is one of my favourites! It's a little twisted, the guys are all possessive and alpha male-ish, and there's usually something a little naughty or unconventional thrown in that may have some readers throwing a tiff! BUT I LOVE IT... And I've been on edge for a LONG-ASS time waiting for Preppy's book, because... PREPPY! Sure, he's always seemed a little bizarre, a humorous killer wearing a bow-tie, but if you're a fan of this series and know what's happened to him, you want to see inside his head.

The majority of this book was set three years prior, after King was sent to prison, so I could see how the relationship between Preppy and Dre developed. It was interesting to see the way Preppy dealt with King being gone and how he focused on his Granny Growhouse operation. He came running when someone was trying to steal from him, and that situation brought Dre into his life.

It saddened me to see how low Dre was when I first met her. She was at rock bottom but didn't know how to escape the situation that she'd gotten herself into. When the opportunity arose, she ran but was lost in her head, to her demons that she was constantly battling. After some time, she was beginning to recover and spent time with Mirna, her grandmother, while Preppy made sure she stayed put. The relationship between her and Preppy grew slowly, but Dre found it hard to accept him after what she'd endured.

Preppy... he's always been a favourite character of mine! He's unusual, with his bow-tie and suspenders, able to charm the Granny's and was deadly when he needed to be. He's quirky and loyal, which is what I love most as he'll do anything to protect his self made family. I loved seeing him with Dre, I could see him falling for her, but pushed her away to protect her from his life. There's a darker side to him as well, he'd do what he wanted, when he wanted. He rescued Dre multiple times, and in one case did what any person would want to do for someone they care about in that situation.

T.M. Frazier finished the story back in the present, with such a jaw dropping moment that I wanted to throw something! I couldn't believe it, that we missed it, so I'm dying to know what happens next. I enjoyed the story from start to finish, it had some really sizzling sex scenes and plenty of action that I've come to enjoy in this series! T.M. Frazier continues to surprise me with her warped storylines, her broken characters and the addictive world... and it's going to be a long wait for part two of this set!

“Now, come on. Time to strip. You need some music? Make sure you start slow. Teasing is key,” he rambled.
“I don’t have to be naked to get a shot,” I argued.
“Well aren’t you just a fun-sucker.”

She was the girl I was in love with.
The girl I would always be in love with.
Until my very last breath.

T.M. (Tracey Marie) Frazier resides in sunny Southwest Florida with her husband and three feisty fur kids.

She attended Florida Gulf Coast University where she specialized in public speaking. After years working in real estate and new home construction, she decided it was finally time to stop pushing her dreams to the back burner and pursue writing seriously.

In the third grade she wrote her very first story about a lost hamster. It earned rave reviews from both her teacher and her parents.

It only took her twenty years to start the next one.
It will not be about hamsters.
