This book was everything I was expecting from the author. It was rough. It was gritty. It was glorious. Made me feel gamut of emotions throughout. From horror, anger, sadness, revulsion, and then joy. There were times I was spitting mad, and other times I just wanted to cry. For them both. Their circumstances, it made me want to beat my chest at the unfairness of it all. But one thing I knew for sure. The author always delivers in her writing. Even when she obliterates my heart, damn near every freaking time. She always managed to put the broken pieces back together in the end. That's one thing I can always expect from her. And this story was no exception.
I have to say I absolutely loved Frankie's character. The girl got fire and spirit. She was strong, defiant, smart, brave, and possessed a core of steel. The way she challenged Smoke made me proud and crackled with glee. She's definitely a fighter. I love their battles, the passion and raw intensity of their connection. It was both beautiful and volatile. You can see how much Smoke was captivated with Frankie yet still conflicted. He lived for vengeance for so long. It tore him up inside to desire the daughter of his enemy. Yet, despite his brutality, he never truly harmed her and crossed that line from which there is no return. But not to say I wasn't furious at Smoke at times. For all the pain and emotional torture he inflicted on Frankie. Intentional or otherwise.
Only a couple of things mar the sheer perfection of this story. I didn't like Smoke bringing the random woman home to screw in front of Frankie. And then afterwards, pulling Frankie to cuddle with him. It was just cruel and like Frankie I felt a bit betrayed and hurt. Because despite her being his tool for revenge, it was still kind of effed up. I mean, they were already getting somewhat intimate, just felt like a slap to the face. I get why he did it, but it still turned my stomach. At least it was brief and never happened again. Though I wished Frankie had given him a punch instead of melting in his arms later. Because let me tell you, Smoke turned out to be a VERY possessive and jealous man. Especially when Nine and Duke are around Frankie. Should have given him a little taste of his own medicine. Just ticked me off that even after that, she ended giving him her virginity.
The other thing is that poor Frankie, the innocent in all this had to endured so much for naught. She NEVER deserved it in the first place. I was expecting her to be a tiny bit angry at Smoke. For some of the misery he put her through with the kidnapping and being his prisoner. Especially when the truth was revealed and how he got it all wrong. About EVERYTHING. Sucks that she had to pay the price for someone else's manipulation and greed.
But despite these two things, the story was still phenomenal to me. I was completely enraptured, heart in my throat all through that explosive ending. Frankie was just amazing. Blew me away with her courage and sacrifice. And yes, I did end up forgiving Smoke. How could I not. The man was just SHATTERED when he thought he lost Frankie. Ready to die rather than live in a world without her. He definitely redeemed himself. Proved with words and deeds how much he loved Frankie. And the way he fought for her. He was Magnificent. Ferocious. Pure Savage.
"I'll shed the blood of every effing man who gets in the way of my saving Frankie. There's no one I won't kill. I'll burn the effingng world down for her and bask in the mothereffing flames."
The epilogue I thought was nice. I would have loved to have seen them a few more years down the road instead of months. Marriage, a couple of kids. But it's too soon and they needed time to heal and reconnect. I'm sure we'll revisit these two later in upcoming books. Also nice to see the crew again. Preppy, Rage, Nolan, Bear and King. Nine seems interesting, wouldn't mind to read his story next.
Now this is the T.M. Frazier writing style I have come to know and love! I have been wanting to know more about Smoke since we are first introduced to him and let me tell you, I ^%$#@!@ LOVED his @$$! Up In Smoke was the perfect addition to my favorite guys, we get Smoke’s story, we get to see some more of the guys we all love, we get action, we get the darkness, we get the smoking hot sex (pun intended) and we get a book that you will absolutely devour in one setting or try your hardest to.
I don’t want to spoil anything but Smoke was so much more than I ever thought he would be. There is so much more to him, and if you have read All The Rage you know the history between Smoke and Rage but also what else happens, something that really bothered Smoke. There is this one part of the book that if you have read Rage’s book, you know this moment in monumental to their relationship. Smoke is intense. Why he is after Frankie and using her to get to her dad was heartbreaking. However, it just shows another depth to who his is. Frankie has her own secrets, her own reasons for doing what she is doing and when you learn the truth, holy #@!! I was proud of her. Frankie honestly at first I wasn’t sure if she was the right choice for Smoke but I quickly decided that she was. The tension, the chemistry and the turmoil between these two will keep you on the edge of your seat.
I can’t wait for the next book from T.M. Frazier! She hooked me as a fan with her first book and I haven’t stopped reading her since and have no plans on stopping. I will never get enough of King, Bear, Preppy and now Smoke, these characters take a piece of you with them that you will never get back. Another amazing book from T.M. Frazier that needs to be on your TBR lists.
Received an ARC for which I voluntarily provided an honest review
I could not put this book down. The first chapter is absolutely heart wrenching and I had no choice but to devour T.M. Frazier’s words. The story is told in dual POVs and we really get to see and feel for both characters.
“I’m a product of sin and violence. I was born with rage sizzling through my heated blood. With every crack of my knuckles, it consumes me until it is me.”
Frankie has been on her own most her life. She is a smart, strong, defiantly brave hellion. She is determined to make up for her father’s sins which throws her into a world of trouble. For every action there is a consequence. Hers just happens to be a beautiful, powerful, angry lone wolf named Smoke. He is out for one thing and it is blood! He will do anything necessary in the name of revenge.
“He’s got to be some demon. He smirks. No, a devil.”
There were parts of the story that shocked me and other parts that melted my little black heart. This is a stand-alone within the King Series so if you have only read some of the series or none of it you can still enjoy this amazing book. If you love of dark and suspenseful romances, this one is a must.
“Some people say that a good woman can tame a man. Train him. Make him less violent. It ain’t true. It makes you more violent. It makes you more everything.”
