It's been four years since I ran away - from home, my brother, and my maybe father. I created a life free of expectations while pretending I wasn't being hunted by all of the above. I managed to stay under the radar all this time...or so I thought. When big brother shows up and saves my ass, I'm forced to face everything I left behind, including her.

The hole series rocked. I wish I was retired at 32 so I had all the time in the world to listen to audiobooks or read and I would definitely go through this series again. Keenan and Sheldon's story is my favorite by far and I have to admit I actually lost count of how many times I listened to this book. Playful and nice guy going really bad, yum, u can't go wrong.

My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make. I slept with my student, a senior in high school. Multiple times. I had multiple orgasms. In multiple positions. I slept with my student and I enjoyed it. I slept with my student and I'd do it all over again if I could turn back time. My name is Melody Greene, and I got kicked out of my position as a teacher and did my walk of shame a la Cersei Lannister from the principal's office, minutes after said principal threatened to call the cops on me.

When going to war, there are three very simple rules one must abide by: know thy enemy, be prepared to sacrifice, and always wear good shoes. After all, revenge is a dish best served in stilettos. I've got an eye for it, and nothing's going to stand in my way. Not even Rory "The Saint" Brodrick.

Troy Brennan: Every Southie in Boston knows that name. The son of a dead mobster. The heartthrob with steel-blue eyes. "The Fixer" who can make or break you in this city. Oh, and my new husband. Sparrow Raynes: That's me. No one seemed to remember my name up until he barged into my life. But then he caged me. Kidnapped me. And killed every chance I had to run away from the place where we grew up.

Love love loooved this book. At first I was like, nope, not for me, it's a big age difference, not for me thanx, but then I was bored and coz I love all Penelope Douglas's books (expect Punk 57, sorry) I gave it a go and it was just the bestest story ever. Loved both main characters and their chemistry. Narrators were great. I just wanted more of the story, more interactions, more of everything. Scenes between Pike and Jordan were hot and funny. Very well written.

I'm a man without a conscience. I deal in murder and mayhem. I'm the best at what I do. Frankie Helburn is supposed to be an easy job. A means to flush her father out of hiding. Simple. Except there isn't anything simple about Frankie or the secrets she's keeping. She's stubborn as hell and the sexiest god damn thing I have ever seen, sending dark, dirty animalistic desire coursing through my veins. She's cocaine with legs. A f--king addiction that makes me question things I've never questioned before.

Weeeel, TM Frazier is a great writer and I like all her books, including this one. I was looking forward to Smoke's story, but the story wasn't just what I was hoping it would be. I couldn't finish the book at first, I was a bit bored with the story. I took like 2 months break before I listened to the last hour or so, I sort of had to force myself into it.
Story was good, I just felt like the main characters fell in love a bit too fast and were nicer to each other from the start than I wanted them to be...
It wasn't a bad book, but it wasn't good enough for me to keep it in my library so I returned it.

The bowtie is back! Dre was just a beautiful stranger when Preppy saved her the first time around. Now, he has to save her again, but she's no longer some stranger, she's family, and he has no idea who or what he's up against. What he does know is that putting his family back together is the only acceptable outcome.

Would you try another book written by T.M. Frazier or narrated by Lance Greenfield and Kirsten Leigh ?

I love all TM Frazier's books.

If you’ve listened to books by T.M. Frazier before, how does this one compare?

There are 3 books about Preppy, but I think it would be just enough if TM Frazier fit the story into 2 books. I was a bit disappointed. I was expecting a lot when I started Preppy's books. I wanted more of his craziness I got to see in King's story. I loved how loopy he was. But Preppy in his own books was a bit boring. Especially after he was held for a year and tortured and it didn't seem to affect him that much(?)

Do you think Preppy, Part Three: The Life & Death of Samuel Clearwater needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. I don't think I could go through 4th book about Preppy. They were a bit boring. Unless TM Frazier would up the game.

They call me Rage. My real name is like a shadow, always close behind but never quite able to catch up. I fly under the radar because no one ever suspects I'm capable of the kind of brutal violence I commit each and every day. You see, I'm a girl. I'm 19. And I'm a killer. This life is all I know. It's all I want to know. It keeps the things buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much. Without dwelling on the past. Until him. It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target. And my first love.

What did you like best about All the Rage? What did you like least?

I have to say it was my least favourite book in this series. It was too lovey dovey for me. I didn't like when Smoke and Rage were forced to have sex. Like really, they are 2 dangerous killers and they can't figure out how to eliminate 1 kid with a gun so they just go with it and have sex? Also, I think Rage and Nolan fell in love way too fast without any drama. I'm not saying the book wasn't good. I like all of the TM Frazier's book, but this one bored me a little.

What about Hollie Jackson and Roger Wayne ’s performance did you like?

Yeah, not bad.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Sure I would go to see all of the TM Frazier's book if they were movies

Preppy finds himself back in a world he once loved, but no longer recognizes. His dim smile can't hide his inner turmoil and the people he views as family all suddenly feel like polite strangers. Except for one person. A girl with dark eyes and even darker hair. A girl who isn't even an option.

Samuel Clearwater, aka Preppy, likes bowties, pancakes, suspenders, good friends, good times, good drugs, and a good f--k. 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.

Would you listen to Preppy: The Life & Death of Samuel Clearwater, Part 1 again? Why?

Hell yeah!

What other book might you compare Preppy: The Life & Death of Samuel Clearwater, Part 1 to, and why?

Any other one in this series! Great story. Kept me on the edge of the seat from start to finish.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Mmmm All of them I guess. But the end killed me: Who are you!? She is my wife!Like, Whaaaat?

Any additional comments?

I haven't been lucky with books I purchased lately I returned few of them and that was a bit disappointing Then I stumbled upon TM Frazier's books and hallelujah! finally some great books, which I won't mind listening to again. I'll be sure to buy all her books.
