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

King #4
by T. M. Frazier
Release Date: 23 February 2016

Bear & Thia’s epic is FINALLY HERE!


(3.5 stars)

I might have rated this 3 stars if not because of the surprising twist towards the end. Although the first half was rather slow and the middle was filled with too much sex, the ending really save this read for me. 

Soulless picked up right after the end of Lawless, with Bearin prison in exchange for Thia's freedom. A psychotic chick was introduced out of the blue as 'Rage' to protect Thia while Bear is away. While Bear and his loyal brothers are plotting for way to free him, Thia is getting acquainted with a not-quite-a-dog named Pancake

I find it hard to engage back into the story and I thought it was due to Bear and Thia being apart in the first quarter. However, even after they reunited, I don't feel as much for their romance. I know they love each other to the end of the earth and back, but I just don't feel emotional invested into their relationship. Don't even get me started about the scene whereby they are having sex three feet away from corpse. It reminds me of Jamie Lannister having sex next to a coffin.Eww... Ok, that was even more bizarre. 


If not because of the shocking twist towards the end that I totally did not see it coming, I might be disappointed in this book. Lo and behold, it does end spectacularly and damn bloody. I'm sure there is more to come for this King series. I hope TM Frazier can bring back the awesomeness that I read in King and Tyrant.

The part which I love and manage to humor me is the inclusion of Preppy. Even though his part no longer add to the plot of the story, is still a bittersweet moment to read about his friendship with King and Bear. He never fail to make me laugh, as usual.

"Embrace your inner vagina" ~Preppy


 I was mad at the world, at the whiskey for not being strong enough, at the drugs for not lasting long enough, at the fucking whores I banged for not getting me off when it was my fault my dick was fucking useless after a bucket of fucking blow. I went so far as to be pissed at random people on the street for laughing or smiling when I felt like I’d never be able to smile or laugh again.
How dare they?
How fucking dare they be move on with their lives like my friend hadn’t just died.
I was on the verge of losing what little sanity I had left when I rode out of Logan's Beach and set off to find a place, or places, where I could numb myself against the feelings that followed me from town to town, cheap motel to cheap motel, girl to girl, high to fucking high.
Then, this pink haired girl from the past came barreling into my life and it was like for the first time, I’d found a purpose. A real genuine purpose and not just some shit Chop spewed out as orders that I and every other member of the Beach Bastards took as bible, but a true reason to live again.
To WANT to live again.
Someone to live for.
Ti was my chance at some sort of real happiness when Lord fucking knows I had no idea what that really was before her. The only glimpses of real genuine happiness I'd ever had came courtesy of Preppy, King, and of course Grace. Like when King tattooed us for the first time and we loved them, even though they were crooked and downright fucking awful. Like when Grace made me my very first birthday cake. Like the time King Prep and I sat at the top of the water tower and thought the world was ours to take.
Because at that time, it was.
Then there was Ti and my new happiness became the first time I saw her smile. The first time I kissed her. The first time I tasted her pussy by the fire. The first time she let me inside of her, shamelessly pushing through her virginity in a frantic need to make her mine.
Because that's what she was.
That's what she would always be.
And I will kill every motherfucker who dares to try and take her from me.
