I had forgotten how T.M. Frazier can write something that is painful and yet at the same time it makes you fall in love with the bad guy, or in this case the King. I am going to straight up tell you that this book is not a happy go lucky oh lookie unicorns and rainbows type of happily ever after, it is so far from that it’s not even funny. It has drug use, sex, abuse, lies, violence and death, so if you don’t like or can’t handle those things in your books then I suggest you skip King. However, if you are like me who loves a book with a darkness to it and has no issues about those things then I don’t think you will like it, I think you will love it.
King is an @$$%^&*, a bad boy, #@!! he could be the poster child for being the epitome of an @$$%^&*. Look up the definition of @$$%^&* and his picture should be right there with it. But, he is so much more, and when we can chip away at the walls surrounding King, you see that he is so much more than what people see. He has a reason for being how he is, and he isn’t going to apologize for that and he shouldn’t.
Doe has no memory of who she is, she’s homeless and is barely surviving. She ends up at King’s coming home party with the hope of finding a bed and food and at this point she really doesn’t care what she has to do to achieve that. When something happens and King collects her as payment she doesn’t know to be scared, pissed, or relieved. She has a mouth on her that can get her in trouble in a heartbeat, and she has no problems telling King what she thinks. Slowly a relationship between them form and can see how these two have broken down their walls, that is until something happens that made me scream all sorts of profanities for a good five minutes straight. I’m not saying one instance or a couple made that happen, this is something you will have to find out on your own. And that ending, I need to get Tyrant right this second just so I can see what happens next, because yes there is a cliffhanger but luckily we don’t have long to wait for the rest of King and Doe’s story.
If you are a fan of T.M. Frazier’s previous books, I know I am, then you will want to read King right away because it will keep you on the edge of your seat wanting more.
This is the gripping story of two lost souls who in a very unconventional way , reach out to each other and bond. Reading this book made me think about the bonds we make as human beings. We are born into a family we did not choose to begin with. As our lives unfold, we get the chance to bring into our "family" people we grow to love, respect and admire. This "family" we choose for ourselves is the most powerful support system we can possibly have in life. More than blood connection, this is the family we created with our life experiences. Their members are the ones who will stand fast by our sides in times of trouble and in times of joy.
Be aware our characters are part of an underworld of drugs, murderers, and lawless characters. They are a law within themselves. Their world is one of kill or be killed, yet they are human beings too, with all the dreams they dare to hope for. I read this at one sitting because I was unable to put this book down. It is gut-wrenching. If you enjoy plotlines with an edge, this book is for you.
We begin with King coming home after jail, somewhat changed, and he locks eyes with a mysterious beautiful ice-blonde girl at his coming home party...
He learns she is called "Doe" as in Jane Doe because she doesn't know who she is or where she's from. King has a plan- a vendetta- and decides that Doe is "his" and takes her as his- she agrees because all she wants is a roof over her head and some food in her stomach to take her to plan B of living off the streets. First, she needs protection.
As the story continues, Doe begins to grow more and more on King and he is faced with some serious decisions- does love conquer all?
This book really picked up about 40% in and doesn't slow down AT ALL. While reading I wished we were given more clues about Doe's past but when I read the end I was glad the story didn't reveal much- I have already ordered book two- I HAVE to know what happens next! This was my first read by the author and I will be recommending this book like crazy.
King has it all- read at your own risk! You won't see me complaining about a cliffhanger because the ending was awesome- my jaw was on the floor. Again- WOW. 5 stars xx
