She's prim and proper. He's leather and lawless. It will never work between them. It's a lie they almost believe.
We were two tortured souls. Both in more ways than one person should ever have to experience. But we found each other. We needed each other. So help him I did. – Thia Andrews
Well what can I say about the third book in the King series except WOW! Bear and Thia’s story was everything I wanted it to be and more. I loved how this book started, how we see a young girl meet a notorious biker one day at a store – an innocent encounter but one that continued to live with her for seven years.
A failing orangery, parents at each others throats and a Mother balancing on a very precarious edge of deep depression, Thia, at only 17 has had to grow up quicker than her peers. School comes second fiddle to family business chores and she is worn down by it all but it’s her life and she continues to lead day by day as a good example of the caring and supportive Daughter, until one day everything changes.
With nowhere to hide, Thia needs help and the only person who is able to aid her is the one man she met many years ago – the fearless, lawless biker known as Bear.
Bear is lost. His MC gunning for his blood since he threw down his cut, his own Father paying the price for his head. Drowning his sorrows in booze and woman is still the one thing that hasn’t changed but even that’s losing its appeal.
When he gets a frantic call from his best friend, King, telling him there has been an incident with a young girl at the club, he high-tails it back to his home only to find the girl he once made a promise to protect has been badly beaten and in need of help. Thia isn’t ten any more but her innocence hasn’t changed, it soon becomes apparent the girl has never even been kissed. All that is relative though to the fact that his MC now knows her name and has become a vengeful target for the man they’re hunting, and to top it off, she’s on the lamb from the police.
Bear is a man of his word, even if his world isn’t one of playing the hero, but it seems Thia needs a hero, desperately…
And oh my goodness is Bear my hero right now. I was always fascinated by his character and more so in Tyrant after what he went through. He has always been ruthless but a loyal friend and I enjoy his relationship with King, even though it could have turned the other way when Bear started to have feelings for Doe, King’s wife.
Thia is a breath of fresh air. She may be an innocent but she had bite, a strong mind and wasn’t afraid to pick up a gun and pull the trigger if it mean’t getting the hell out of dodge and I totally digged her for that. I hate a damsel in distress and even though this girl had been through more than most, she still fell for a man who admits to being bad, even though she knows there is more to him than meets the eye. He does not fool her, the pain he tries to hide is plenty obvious, and soon she becomes his saviour as much as he becomes hers.
Nothing…and I mean NOTHING could have prepared me for that ending. It seems Bear and Thia’s story does not end here, and I am dying for book 4.
T.M Frazier has delivered an action packed, gritty and explosive series that delivers on every conceivable level. It’s packed with suspense along with hot sex, comedic moments and romance that make you connect instantly and fall in love with the ultimate bad boy. Perfect!
A must read!
