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.
This is the fifth book in the King Series and it's meant to be read after Soulless.

“No! I hate you,” she spat, as I continued to tug her beside me.
 “Good, you can hate me while I fuck you,” I said. “But first things first. My lesson obviously didn’t take in that brain of yours. You want what you want and I can’t stop you,” I said, as we approached the train tracks which were elevated on a mound of gravel several feet off the ground. The warning lights flashed orange, the neon reflective barriers dropped down to cover the service road, while the bells indicating an approaching train clanged away. “And since I can’t stop you, I’m going to help you out. Bullet in the head was so three hours ago. I’ve got something even better in mind now.”
“Wait. What?” she asked, her teeth chattering. “You…you wouldn’t.”
“Wouldn’t what?” I said, turning around to face her, almost losing my footing when I noticed the trail of dried tears on her cheeks. I looked away for a fraction of a second to regain my composure. “You think I wouldn’t kill someone?” I cocked an eyebrow. “You already know that I’ve been there, done that, bought the motherfucking t-shirt, doll.” Her eyes went wide and she made a move to step back. “Oh no, Doc, I read your letter and I saw what you wanted. And remember, I’m nothing if not accommodating.”
When I pulled her to climb the gravel mound her knees locked up so I bent over and picked her up by the waist, tossing her over my shoulder, carrying her onto the tracks while she beat on my back with her closed fists. When I got to the top I set her down roughly and she fell backwards onto her ass, bracing herself with her hands against the large pieces of gravel under the tracks.
 The whistle of the train blew in the distance. It wouldn’t be long now. Dre made a move to stand up, but that wasn’t what I had in mind. I bent down and pushed on her chest, spreading her tiny frame across the tracks. I crawled on top of her, pinning her down with my thighs. I leaned over her, my chest to hers as we both breathed rapidly. She struggled underneath me to get up, pushing at my chest, but I wouldn’t budge. “Why the struggle, Doc? This is what you wanted, isn’t it?”
She glanced up at me as the train whistled again. Her gaze flipped to her right, where the single yellow light from the train emerged from around the corner, shining brighter and brighter as it chugged closer and closer. For a moment she stopped struggling, looking back and forth from the train to me.
“So what, you’re gonna die too?” she asked, hoping to appeal to my sense of self preservation.
I shrugged. “I get bored easily, maybe the devil will make me his errand boy or something.”
“Preppy, this isn’t funny. Get up and get off the fucking tracks,” she said, her concern shifting from herself to me.
I shook my head and yawned. She wiggled underneath me, and although there was a train barreling toward us my cock once again stirred to life. Maybe I should just rip down her panties and push inside of her. Train or no train, it would be one fuck of a way to go out.
“You have to choose, Doc,” I said, making my voice as serious as I was capable. “Life?” I asked, screaming over the sound of the train screeching against the track. I pushed my hard cock against her core and she gasped. Her trembling turned into a shiver, her mouth fell open. I glanced to the side at the blinding light of the approaching train as it bathed us both in a tunnel of light. I leaned down, so close that my lips were a whisper above hers, as I shouted, “Life? Or death? What’s it gonna be, Doc?” My hair blew around my face as the light grew brighter and brighter. “Answer the fucking question!” I demanded, my hands squeezing her shoulders, my fingers digging roughly into her skin. “DO YOU WANT TO FUCKING DIE?”
With only seconds left until we became shredded under the train, Dre closed her eyes and sighed. When she opened them again they were glistening, fresh tears spilling from the edges.
She started to speak, her lips forming the beginning of the word, but before it could fully leave her lips I stood, pulling her up with me. I lifted Dre into my arms and took a running leap off the tracks, my legs flailing in the air as we fell the seven or so feet. Dre’s decision still on her lips, her scream surrounding the air around us as we crashed down into the field.
“I wanna liiiiiiiiiiiivvvvvveeeeee.”


5 Stars!

T.M. Frazier is a favorite of mine. I have read every book she has published... to date. Her books tend to be super angsty, intense, full of passion, and crazy hot. The King series quickly became a favorite of mine and since then, I have greedily wanted more.

Readers wide, including myself, were devastated when we thought out beloved Prep was gone. I cried... and cried... and cried when I thought we lost him. So getting to the end of Soulless and finding out he was indeed alive had me screaming, squeeling, and maybe giving some fists pumps. And now... he is BACK FROM THE DEAD!

Preppy was the PERFECT read and the PERFECT book to start out beloved Preppy's story. While his story will span over three books and I knew there would be a dreaded clifhanger, it did not stop me from devouring this book and begging for more when the pages quit turning because that ending.... SAY WHAT!?!

Preppy, Part One starts out from the beginning, giving us some back story to Prep and Dre... the girl who is going to consume him life and thoughts for a while. Prep is... different. And she is a junkie. They are a beautiful hurricane when they are together yet something draws them to each other... despite it all.

Be prepared for heartache, love, loss, passion, fire, twists, turns, secrets, revalations... basically if a book can have it, Prep might just surprise you. I cannot FREA

I highly recommend this book.

5 Stars!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, murder, bikers, grief, secrets, loss, betrayal, drugs, pain, abuse, and heartbreak. 

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first...
King (King, #1)
Tyrant (King #2)
Lawless (King #3)
Soulless (King #4)

This is the start of Dre and Preppy’s story. Preppy is a little broken. But then so is Dre. Preppy got her out of a bad situation but he kept secrets. She is trying to turn her life around but having a hard time. The chemistry between these two is off the charts but will secrets get it the way? What happens when demons from the past come calling? What happens when someone is just too broken to keep you and pushes you away? Will you ever be able to forgive them? Can you move on with your life? What if you needed closure before moving on? Would you seek it out? What happens if the truth is not what is seems and you might have a second chance? 

This author always manages to throw in a few surprises with her stories but really some of the surprises in this story are some of the best!! I am sure if you read you will understand just what ones I am talking about. I have to say I missed Preppy. Not that I didn’t miss King and Bear but I missed Preppy the most. So glad we get his story. This story might not be what you expect but I loved it all the same!!

I loved these characters and also the side characters. There are some tear filled moments and some anger filled moments in this story. But all in all I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.

3.5 Stars!

3.5 Stars-Wasn't What I Expected...
Hm, I am at a loss as to how I feel about Preppy a day after finishing the book. Like most of the King series fans, Preppy was my favorite in the earlier books. That quick wit and arrogance about him is the best. While we get that once again with Prep, I wanted to start from where Lawless ended and maybe go forward from there. Nonetheless, Preppy was in fine form in his very own book. 

"Upon first glance, the guy was about as scary as the Easter Bunny. Until I saw IT." ~ Andrea
That is what is so cool about Preppy, he's unassuming. The pressed slacks, the bow tie, not the kind of guy you would think had a gun tucked into the waistband of those starched pants. Presentable on the outside, there is more going on on the inside with Preppy and in his book we learn what that is. He carried demons, which isn't a secret, however he gets down to the nitty gritty details this time around.

"He was an addiction. I craved him, and I wanted more." Andrea
Preach it sister! Upon her first introduction to Samuel Clearwater, Andrea Capulet didn't know what she was dealing with. To her, this guy escaped from his study group at the library, not a calculated killer slash drug dealer. Andrea has hit rock bottom and like it or not, it seems like she is going to get back on her feet from a very unlikely source.

So starts the tale of Dre and Preppy. We are traveling back and forth with each of them to get the full story of thier "relationship". The book is written from dual points of view and I was disappointed that we weren't moving ahead in the series, but are left with yet more questions. While I enjoy the King series, it may be running out of steam in my opinion. Preppy was one of my favorite characters from the start and I don't feel this book did him justice.
