Blog Tour + ARC Review + Giveaway: King by T. M. Frazier


Homeless. Hungry. Desperate.

Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from.

A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross unless you’re prepared to pay him back in blood, sweat, pussy or a combination of all three.

King’s future hangs in the balance. Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go. 

Warning: This book contains graphic violence, consensual and nonconsensual sex, drug use, abuse, and other taboo subjects and adult subject matter. Although originally slated to be a standalone, KING is now a two part series.


Dark Contemporary


Review ( 5 stars )

I hate that King make me cry. I mean King, not King... but this book 'King'. 

King is a deranged psychopath, a tattoo artist, an ex-convict, a felon and overall a fearsome motherfucker. He said shit like,
"I'm going to find you, and then I'm going to take my time carving those fucking butterfly wings from that nasty pussy of yours with my knife."
Preppy is King's wacko sidekick who fancy bow-tie and suspender. I love his oddball personality, his vulgar and crude mouth and his wacky charm.

Doe as in Jane Doe. This poor girl suffered memory lost and can't even find a scrape of food to feed herself. Not sure whether she is lucky or unlucky when she stumble upon King, in all his menacing glory.
"I didn't dream about him. Because King wasn't a dream. He was a nightmare."
Right from the beginning, I fell for King and Preppy's bromance. When Doe came into the picture and King getting possessive of her, they are like one big messed up family.

King is a true anti-hero. He make me shiver not in a good way with his capability for violence. But at the same time make me melt for him when he did something that resemble a normal human. King is a walking contradiction. He seems to be a complex man who is neither good nor evil. He makes you want to hate him and love him at the same time. He evoked all sorts of complicated feelings in me. I wanted to smack him one too many times. Honestly, there is too much wrong with him, but there is an underlying goodness in him too.
"I think you are the most stubborn, overbearing, anger inducing, obnoxious, complicated, and beautiful man that has ever lived."

I like Doe's sass. She tends to have verbal diarrhea and being blunt at inappropriate moment without looking ridiculous. I can't imagine waking up and not knowing who I am. I understand her dilemma and struggle to preserve the little part of herself. 

Two of them together gave me a serious case of lady's blue balls. Oh, the angst. When I think of it, it is ridiculous that they have so much to fight about without even fucking each other yet. King's feelings that ran hot and cold all the time drove Doe and me fucking crazy. 
"Most of the time I don't know if you want to kill me or fuck me!"
I don't consider this a dark read, but definitely very vulgar, crude and violent. It also filled with a ton of dark humor that make me burst into laughter when I'm not supposed to. 

This book gave me an unique plot with a complex hero, a heroine with a clean slate of mind and a true friend in Preppy. I'm rooting for each and everyone of them. We have some violence with the local MC gang and a person close to King that he had to save. Then we also got a big dose of heart wrenching moment that simply gut you. The cliffhanger make me extremely worried for my favorite characters. What will happen to them?

I believe it might comes down to Doe. She might be the biggest wildcard in the story. Thank goodness we already have a date for the second part of the story, Tyrant. It make the wait bearable.

“Hey there,” a deep voice rumbled against my ear.
When I turned around, I was eye level with a wall of leather with white patches sewn into it. One read VICE PRESIDENT and the other, BEACH BASTARDS. The man wearing the vest had long blonde hair that draped over to one side of his head, revealing the shaved area beneath. He had a beard, not stubble, a full-on beard that was a few inches long and very well groomed. He stood well over six feet, his frame lean yet very cut and muscular. I couldn’t tell what color his eyes were because his lids hung heavy and were slightly reddened. His entire neck was covered with colorful tattoos and when he went to light a cigarette I noticed that the backs of both of his hands and were covered in ink as well.
“Hey,” I answered back, trying to assert my newly found false confidence.
He was beyond attractive. He was gorgeous. If I had to end up in someone’s bed, I imagined that being in his wouldn’t be half-bad. He sniffled, drawing attention to the light dusting of white powder trapped in his nostrils.
“They call me Bear. You belong to anyone?” he asked seductively, leaning in toward me.
“Maybe…you?” I winced at my choice of words. Of all the fucking things I could have said, THAT was what came to mind? Stupid fucking mouth. Nikki was right. I spoke first and thought second.
Bear chuckled. “I’d love that, beautiful, but I got something else in mind.”
“Oh, yeah? What would that be?” I asked, trying to keep my tone light although my mind and heart were racing.
“This party? It’s for my buddy. And he was down here for a total of thirty minutes before he hightailed it upstairs to drown himself in a bottle of Jack. He’s like a cat in a tree, can’t seem to talk him down. It’s understandable, seeing as he’s been away a while, but I figure you can help me out.”
He hooked his finger into the front of my skirt and slowly dragged me toward him until my nipples were flush up against his chest. He pressed his fingers into the skin right above my public bone and I resisted the urge to jump back by biting down on my bottom lip.
“The BBB’s have never really been his thing.” He paused when he saw the confused look on my face at his abbreviation. “Beach Bastard Bitches.” He explained. “But you? You’re new. You’re different. You’ve got this cute little innocent thing going on, but I know you’re not or you wouldn’t be at this kind of party if that was your deal. I’m thinking he’ll like you.” Bear brushed his lips against the side of my neck. “So maybe you go up there. Make him happy for me. Make little him happy by wrapping those gorgeous lips around his cock for a while. Then when you’re done, bring him back down here to civilization. And maybe later, if you’re a good girl and do what you’re told, we can go back to the clubhouse and have some real fun.” He grazed his teeth along my earlobe. “Think you can you do that for me?”
“Yeah, yeah I can do that,” I said. My skin prickling from his touch. And I could do it.
I think.
“What’s your name anyway?” Bear’s hand slowly traveled up the back of my leg, pushing up my skirt, it came to rest on my ass cheek, which was then exposed to anyone who might have been looking in our direction.
“Doe. My name is Doe,” I breathed.
“Fitting.” He said with a chuckle. “Well, my innocent looking little Doe.” Bear leaned in close and surprised me by planting a soft kiss on the corner of my mouth. His lips were soft, and he smelled like laundry detergent mixed with liquor and cigarettes. I was just beginning to think that the kiss meant that he’d changed his mind and didn’t want me to send me away to his friend, but no such luck. He pulled away abruptly and turned me around by my shoulders so that I was facing the stairs. He swatted me on my ass, propelling me forward. “Up the stairs you go, sweetheart. Last room at the end of the hallway. Be good to my boy, and me and you will get to play later.” He sealed his words with a wink and as I made my way up the stairs I turned back and flashed him a fake smile. I hoped the guy at the end of the hallway was like Bear, because then maybe it wouldn’t be so bad.
Then a thought hit me that had me fighting back the tears that sprung from my eyes with a sudden force that almost took me to my knees.
I’d officially sold myself, and the price was far more than any dollar amount.
