Author: T.M. Frazier
Genres: Romance, Dark
Release Day: October 25th 2016
ARC was kindly provided from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Samuel Clearwater, A.K.A Preppy, likes bowties, pancakes, suspenders, good friends, good times, good drugs, and a good f*ck.He’s worked his way out from beneath a hellish childhood and is living the life he’s always imagined for himself. When he meets a girl, a junkie on the verge of ending it all, he’s torn between his feelings for her and the crippling fear that she could be the one to end the life he loves.

Andrea ‘Dre’ Capulet is strung out and tired.

Tired of living for her next fix. Tired of doing things that make her stomach turn. Tired of looking in the mirror at the reflection of the person she’s become. Just when she decides to end it all, she meets a man who will change the course of both their lives forever.

And their deaths.

For most people, death is the end of their story.
For Preppy and Dre, death was only the beginning.

4 stars! 

“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 ♥

  1. This book was so difficult to review! I mean, its Preppy, so YAY. But, I felt like the book kind of meandered and I was left scratching my head at times. The ‘romance’ between Dre and Preppy just didn’t feel authentic to me. So, I chose to ignore that. Bahahaha! I still thought it was a 4 star read, but it didn’t leave me with that amazing hangover that King gave me!

    1. Same, I really think Preppy is more than enough to cover a book, a romance is just not needed and that’s okay. King was the surprise book, after that this world got familiar so nothing that happened after King had the same shock value, you know?
