Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author T.M. Frazier, Up in Smoke is a standalone. You do not have to hear the rest of the books in the King series to enjoy Smoke's story.

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. Want things I've never wanted before. I might have her, but she isn't mine to keep. If her father doesn't show his face, she will be mine. To kill.

Disappointed

Don’t know what happened but the narration didn’t match the book. I needed up just reading the book as the narration missed parts in the book.
My first disappointment in An Audible read so not too bad.
Story was awesome.

Terrible female narrator

I got through 3 chapters and couldn’t listen anymore, talking in a sing song voice, very annoying. It’s a shame because I have enjoyed the whole series up until now, can listen to anymore.

Up In Smoke

This book was great, I love the world of the Lawless and all the characters who live there. Smoke and Frankie fit this world perfect and I loved their story

up in smoke

I love the series and have all the others. but yep part of the book is missing although it doesnt make a whole lot of difference to the story. The female narrator is annoying shes almost singing her lines and i had to grit my teeth through a few chapters.

Not what I expected/ wanted/ was hoping for

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.

T.M. Frazier is amazing...but

What in the world happened to the narration? Troy was great but Lucy Rivers...wth? I have listened to several other books she narrated but this was absolutely horrible narration by her. I honestly had the hardest time listening to it. She sounded so fake and over exaggerated in her female voice. The men’s voices...it honestly sounded like someone with speech disabilities at times...I mean Duke...are you kidding? I just don’t understand. I mean, Lucy Rivers has never been a favorite, in fact, I don’t even remember her other than I know I have listened to other books. I have never been this appalled by narration of a well known authors book than I am with this...because of Lucy. The book is great, but I just can’t believe how much I hate listening to this. Listen to Duke...”seriously Sarrrrruuuuhhh”. Ugh...cringe. I have listened to 463 audiobooks and have never felt the need to write a negative review about a narrator...until now. Sorry, I know this sounds so rude. The book is great. Troy is great. I am really mad t feeling Lucy on this one.

Very Entertaining but NOT Unabridged..

I've been a fan of the King series since the first book so I'm not surprised that this latest installment did not disappoint. However, I read the book's Kindle format and noticed there is an obvious difference when compared to this audiobook. This supposed unabridged version is NOT narrated word for word. There are entire paragraphs and dialogue from the book which were omitted and/or changed in the audiobook version.

female reader doing the male voices

female doing the male voices was just hard to listen to, sounded whiney at times, slured, not believable.

Narrator Lucy Rivers, ruined this book!

I love the King series, but unfortunately cannot get through this book due to the horrible narration by Lucy Rivers. So disappointing.

My Two Pennies

Phenomenal job with narration by Lucy and Troy. We can easily feel the intensity of all the characters pouring through the speakers. Smoke and Frankie... holy hell! This story pulled me in from the beginning and just captivated me till the last words. We’re given everything you can imagine as we hear Frankie’s story with Smoke. This man is mysterious and sexy and has the biggest heart underneath all that bad boy image. I absolutely love these characters and bringing everyone back yet keeping this as a stand-alone was perfect. Anyone that hasn’t read the King series can easily enjoy this story although I highly recommend you read them all as well as All The Rage, you’ll appreciate this story that much more. I was blown away with the turns that came and had me on the edge non stop. Beautifully written and I hope there’s more in the future. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

Awful Female Narrator

I love King series and every book written by T.M. Frazier. (Ok I am editing here cause I feel obligated to warn people since I just finished Perversion Triology and it was God Awful piece of crap so not those either). I read and listened to all of them more than once. Gosh, I even miss the characters time to time and listen them here again for a while. This is by far THE WORST narration I have heard from audible! Lucy Rivers’s take on the characters was just terrible! I was so irritated that I stopped listening and get back to my book. Then, I had no choice but get back to this horrid thing again since I have so little time at my hands for my dear books. It was a torture to hear all that! It's completely butchered the story for me. How was this narration even accepted by the production company?! I am scared to continue with the series since the next book is also narrated by the same person. uh. The Dark Light of Day (the first one from Frazier) was also narrated by the same person and I LOVED that one! Why is this one like this?!

I love these characters!!!

I began listening to TM Frazier a few years ago starting with King. How I got that book I'll never know. Romance may be a usual genre for me, but if I had did a close read of the book's description I don't think I would have listened to it - and that would have been my loss. I got this book (Smoke) and the Outskirts Duet. I liked the Outskirts story and characters, I'm very glad I listened to both and may listen to both again, but I LOVED Smoke.

Couldn’t get beyond the voice

I couldn’t get beyond the voice to even give a review on the book so I picked the middle star . Too bad, I usually try to stick it out but just couldn’t do it this time.

Ears are bleeding<br />

I have loved all the books in this series, including the narrator's.
This book was hard to get into, and did not flow seamlessly with the series storyline.
Loved the male voice, but the female voice was like fingers on a chalk board. The narrator's voice was very slow and nasaley. Please choose the previous female voices next time, they are amazing.

Loved the story. Didn’t love the female narrator.

Great story, but the female narrator was painful to listen to. I gave the performance *** because Troy Duran was great.

It was good but I was hoping for more

I love the King book series, however, the story line of this book was not as developed as the other ones in the King series. There were situations that I thought needed more explanation or development but it never happened, it feels like the book was finished in a hurry and left lots of things hanging.

However, I liked the plot and the characters.

Good - but last couple of hours let it down a bit

Enjoyed this book and probably would have given it 5 stars but the last couple of hours seemed like they were written in a hurry. That section was like a cheesy action film with lots of very fortunate miraculous survival moments, and certain plot points completely brushed over which really merited at least a scene to discuss them, and some villains that were a bit too stereotypical. Any normal book and I would have capped it at 3 stars, but I genuinely really enjoyed it for the most part. Wish Frazier had a bit more time to complete the book properly though!
