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

Lawless is book three in the King Series and is Bear and Thia's raw, and gritty tale!

Thia is prim and proper.
Bear is leather and lawless.
It will never work between them.
It's a lie they almost believe.

Lawless had been a much anticipated book ever since I met Bear in King. As with everyone else, I can't wait to get my hand on this baby.

When I read the blurb mentioned the heroine to be 'prim and proper', I'm over the fucking moon. Star-crossed lover is one of my favorite theme. When Thia was introduced as the heroine, I was disappointed. Mainly because she is not a high society or a girl from the right side of the law as I presumed her to be. She grew up with a deranged mother and when she seek out Bear in the beginning, it was because she was so afraid she is going to jail. There goes my hope for a Romeo and Juliet story.

Let's talk about Bear. We knew what Bear went through and when we saw him again here he was mostly a drunk, a junkie and a manwhore. With all the alcohol and drugs that he seems to be consuming since he went away, I was surprised that he still seems coherent and had a pretty decent mind when it comes to problem solving.

When Thia got attacked by the Beach Bastard MC because she got a minor connection to Bear ten years ago, King called Bear back to settle the mess. Although the last thing Bear wants to do is to come back home, he still manage to drag his ass to met Thia again. One looks at her perky tits, he decided that he wants to bang her. O-kay.

The things that works for me here is the inclusion of King and I like seeing him so supportive of Bear. Even Preppy make a small appearance, which I adored. I truly approved of the introduction to Gus, a brother from the MC. He seems fascinating. I like the friendship and camaraderie between Bear and his brothers.

Romance wise, I don't really find anything great between Bear and Thia. Mostlyuncontrollable lust and 'I-don't-know-why-you-are-so-special-to-me' . Although I find Bear aversion to clothes interesting and I wish to know why do he even call Bear in the first place.

Plot wise, Lawless came in short compare to King and Tyrant. The predecessor were filled with more suspense and plot twist that kept me glued to the Kindle. However, I like the ending though, even though it is a cliffhanger. I can't wait to know what will happen to Bear next.

“I’m going to remember this as the worst time in my entire life. The very worst.” She shook her head. “There is nothing I can do to change that.  Girls my age are playing sports, going to dances and parties, kissing boys.  And that’s never been me.  I’ve had a full time job at the grove and a part time job at the Stop-N-Shop. I’ve done nothing over the last few years except work my ass off and watch my family fall apart. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse…now all this.”  She waived around to the house and to me and let out an awkward laugh. She took another hit off the bowl, passing it back to me.  Her coughing much less than it was on her first try.  
“Ti, how old are you?”  I asked, clearing my throat as I ventured into territory I knew I shouldn’t.  She was a pistol, even if she was a sad one, but there was a wave of innocence about her that had me both feeling bad for her and salivating for a taste of her.   
This is for her, not you. I told myself.  It was only a partial lie.  
“Seventeen,” She said, sniffling.  “Eighteen soon.”  
“You ever been kissed?” I asked, her eyes met mine. “And not a peck on the cheek or a brief smack of the lips, but a real fucking kiss? One that leaves you without air in you lungs and your thighs pressing together in search of more?”  I said, my voice coming out deep and strained.  My cock coming alive at the thought of tracing my tongue along her pump lips.  
“Why?” She whispered, and as soon as the words left her mouth I knew there would be no coming back from what I was about to do.  
I pushed off the fire pit and pulled her up off the chair, pressing her tits into my chest and my straining cock against her stomach.  I tipped her chin up and looked into her confused emerald greens. She followed my thumb with her eyes as I traced her bottom lip.  There were too many lines marring her face, questioning what it was I was up to.  I knew she would try to pull away at any second, try to stop me.  But it was too late for that.  
I was beyond stopping.  
Just one taste.
“Answer the question,” I pressed.  
“No,” she said with a slight shake of her head, and before she could try to argue, I leaned down and pressed my lips to hers. 
I was already going to hell.
Might as well enjoy the ride there.
