Preppy finds himself back in a world he once loved, but no longer recognizes. His dim smile can’t hide his inner turmoil and the people he views as family all suddenly feel like polite strangers.
Except for one person. A girl with dark eyes and even darker hair.
A girl who isn’t even an option.
At least, not anymore.
Dre can’t decide who she’s going to listen to. Her heart, her head, or her body. Because two out of those three things have her heading right back to Logan’s Beach. Closure is what she tells herself she’s seeking, but when she unlocks doors that were never meant to be opened she soon discovers that when it comes to Samuel Clearwater, closure might NEVER be an option.
This is book six in the King Series and the second part of Preppy and Dre’s story.
What kind of book is was this? I am trying to wrap my head around what I just read. It’s taking some time because it’s hard to really fully grasp it. This is the same kind of feeling get every time I read a book by TM Frazier. Her stories are gritty, dark and dirty but underneath all that is something profoundly beautiful about each character.
Preppy has literally had a crap life handed him. Getting torn down around each turn. But he is a Phoenix always rising from the ashes. While it’s easier to give up, his friends won’t let him. He keeps going after what he wants but that’s what he does. He takes what he wants.
Dre is another character that has been beaten and broken by life and while she once tried to give up, with the help of Preppy she found a reason to live, despite how many times he tries to hurt her and push her away.
I don’t usually talk about specific scenes because I don’t want to spoil the impact they have on you as you read it but there is one scene that is so amazing to read that I can’t. It’s between Preppy and King towards the end and it shows that brotherhood is not always by blood but by loyalty. Some of the deepest bonds are the ones we choose not the ones we are born into. And I love reading that scene and watching the transformation that takes place (I may have cried a lot when I read it lol).
Now it wouldn’t be a TM Frazier book if there wasn’t some crazy cliffhanger. And this one is one of the worst she has written. If you hate these kinds of ending just be warned you may be angry at the way it ends. For me, I can’t wait to see how it all ends.
“Oh yeah?” Preppy asked, taking a step forward, crowding me in, staring deep into my eyes with an intensity that had me biting down hard on my lower lip. “Do YOU like a clean look, Doc? Or do you like it dirty? Beards. Tattoos…scars?”
Yes, I like it dirty. So dirty.
I was stunned into silence. Preppy’s proximity was fucking with my brain, and I was afraid I was going to blurt out something that would dig me a deeper hole than I’d already dug for myself. I opened my mouth to answer, but I couldn’t get the words out. Not like I needed to. Preppy answered for me. “If I remember correctly, you like it dirty. Real fucking dirty.”
He took another step. “Remember that first time? In the field? By the train tracks? Remember how I pulled your hair while I fucked you from behind and stretched you open? Remember how it felt to have me moving inside of you? How it felt when you came and screamed in my fucking ear? I do. I remember. Thought of that scream every fucking day since. It was deafening.” He chuckled and pressed his teeth against his bottom lip. He groaned, the sound shot straight to my pussy. “I can still fucking hear it now.”
So can I.
The hair on the back of my neck stood on end. “What are you doing?” I asked, trying to step around him, but he pressed his hands against the wall, caging me in. The warmth of his chest radiated onto mine. I tried to look anywhere but into his eyes, afraid of what I might see, but there wasn’t anywhere else to look. He moved even closer.
Preppy pressed his knee between my thighs, parting my legs. “Me?” he asked, with mock innocence. “I’m just reminiscing with an old friend.”
“This doesn’t feel like just reminiscing.”
He stared intensely into my eyes. “No, not YET it doesn’t.” He grinned. “But it fucking will. Soon.”
