“I never knew true fear until I met pure evil. He wore a smile and a bow tie.”
PREPPY IS BACK, PEOPLE! Okay, so, I cried when he died (not a spoiler, it’s literally the title of the book, duh!) and I cried when I signed up for this, and I cried when I read it, because it’s Preppy! The killer with the bow tie that made me love his weird ass and his lame jokes and the awful singing. You have to read the previous books to get the full effect of Preppy.
Preppy is unlike any other character, he’s like a big puppy that turns into a pit bull and he wears a bow tie. Always with the bow tie ♥ He’s a killer, there’s really no going denying that part, in fact he is a cruel killer and he enjoys every minute of it. Like the rest of the books, Preppy’s wasn’t a happy one, or a light one at that. It’s dark and it goes to places very few books dare to go, some scenes are really difficult to read, scary even and they make you wonder why the hell am I reading this, why am I enjoying this, what is wrong with me. And that, lovely people, is good writing! As always Frazier delivers an amazing book that is so hard to put down even for a second despite the hard to read scenes.
I do have one small issue, unlike the other books, the romantic interest didn’t really convince me with Preppy. He has so much to say and such a rich background that if this book didn’t include any love story at all, I wouldn’t even notice it missing. Preppy’s quirkiness was more than enough to make me read this and sure Dre, the love interest is nice and she fits right into the story, I just didn’t connect with her as much as I would have liked.
“Baby girl. If hurt is what you want, hurt is what I can do.”
I’m legit terrified and excited and so happy to wait for the next part, I want all the Preppy I can get ♥
