Blog Tour Review & Giveaway ~ KING by T.M. Frazier


Homeless, hungry and desperate enough to steal, 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, pu$$y 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.

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.

5 – Dark, Deadly, Dangerously Sexy – Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

I'd never both hated and wanted something so much in my entire life.
A quick fuck might wipe away the unfamiliar feelings rolling around in my twisted brain, but the girl was injured and passed out in my bed.
Technically, you can say that I was caring for her.
Technically, I wanted to face fuck her until she gagged.
My conflicted feelings were giving me a fucking migraine.

Doe is a desperate girl living on the streets, stealing to survive and with absolutely no memory of who she is.

King is a man who answers to no one but himself, he makes his own rules and lives outside the law. He is a man you don't want to ever cross if you want to live to see another day and doesn't do charity – if you want something from him you will pay in blood, favors, sex, or any combination of the three and you never say no to him.

King has just returned home from a three year stint in prison when their worlds collide and nothing will ever be the same.
She is held prisoner by a past she has no recollection of and he is hiding things from her, his future lies in her hands she just doesn't know it and he would be the last one to tell her. Thrown together in a world filled with darkness and blood they find something in each other they never thought possible, if only they could let go of the demons that haunt them.

King was smart, calculating, and cunning. Worst of all, he had the power to make my knees both tremble in fear and weak with desire. He was someone I had to stay away from, but according to him, that wasn't about to happen.

Oh. My. Damn. This was one of those books that will just stick with you long after you've read the last page. Just be prepared, this is not a light read – it's dark and gritty, heartbreaking and terrifying, with bouts of laughter, small rays of hope and sexual tension so thick you will choke on it. King is not a man to be fucked with – he's scary as hell but sex on legs at the same time. The man had me a drooling hott mess just as much as he scared the hell outta me and pissed me way the hell off. Doe was a pretty amazing character in her own right. Sure she had her moments of completely falling apart, but they were well earned and I totally understood where she was coming from. But when it came to King, she learned not to take his shit and actually stood up to the very dangerous man, even when it wasn't necessarily the smart thing to do. She did frustrate me a few times though with how utterly trapped by her past she was. I mean, I got it, I really did, but she went a bit far sometimes with the whole protecting her thing. Preppy cracked me the hell up. I mean, the guy was completely fucked in the head, but he was loyal to those he considered family and the way he talked and yammered on was just freakin hilarious – even if he was high as a kite most times. Bear also took me by surprise. He had a side to him you would never expect of a Big Bad Biker Guy who never shies away from bloodshed. Right from the beginning this book pulls you in and refuses to let go. The pace did not slow down, the emotions it pushes you through are many and often, the POV jumps between King and Doe which was just AhFrigginMazing and really helped you to get a feel for both of them – why they were the way they were, and why they did the things they did. It was just one hell of a journey. But seriously... that ending... goddamn. I spent the last few chapters either screaming, crying, screaming some more and ended on the floor in the fetal position wailing WHY WHY WHY?! I will be climbing the walls like a psychotic spider monkey chewing my nails off waiting to get my grubby little hands on the next book. If this one tore me up I can only imagine what's in store for us next. I see some serious author stalking in my future just DYING for some teasers until she returns my sanity (hopefully) with Tyrant. Ms. Frazier has ripped my attention clean away with King and has definitely earned herself a solid spot on my One-Click-Addiction List. I am more than ready for whatever torture she has in store for us in the future.

King was hard and scary as hell, so was his kiss. And if his words weren't getting his point across, his kiss told me that he owned me. It made me forget for just a second that the man behind those lips was a raging psychopath.

T.M. (Tracey Marie) Frazier resides in sunny Southwest Florida with her husband and three feisty fur kids.

She attended Florida Gulf Coast University where she specialized in public speaking. After years working in real estate and new home construction, she decided it was finally time to stop pushing her dreams to the back burner and pursue writing seriously.

In the third grade she wrote her very first story about a lost hamster. It earned rave reviews from both her teacher and her parents.

It only took her twenty years to start the next one.
It will not be about hamsters.
