5 KING stars!
THAT ENDING OMG WHAT IS HAPPENING IN MY HEAD?! This is a perfectly crafted anti-hero book with lots of twists. Unlike most books that want to keep the mystery of what is going on until the last possible minute, King manages to engage the characters (including the secondary characters which are just as intriguing and they add layers to the story that one can’t help but love *eyes certain characters and wipes tear*) in such a way that the story keeps the reader focused. It makes you wonder, what is happening, why is it happening and it slowly answers those questions in a flawless way that feels effortless, like watching a story happen before your eyes (it goes without saying this is unputdownable) till the end.
King has just been released from prison, at his homecoming party, Doe’s only new friend does the stupidest thing ever and steal from him.
“We met on the night I decided to sell myself for a hot meal and a place to sleep.”
King is such a mystery, he’s had a troubled past and like most of Frazier’s books a unique one at that; I just love it when we get as much background as possible, you get an idea of the person before the story, of a person during the story and together it creates a good character development. Reading about King and Preppy was just heartbreakingly beautiful.
Doe is a mystery. Literally. A girl with no memories, no past, nothing. But when she meets King, they’re kind of stuck together. And for a good reason. Everything in this book have something to back it up, it’s not in a because I feel like doing it but I can’t quite put my finger on it so deal with it way.
Frazier’s writing is simply amazing, she has a way of delivering a dark romance with lots of raw emotional moments that make a difference, she can absolutely wow the reader in the best way and KING is no exception, it’s one of those books that will make you count down the days till the next one and I FREAKING LOVE IT OMG!
about the author
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.
