“Love is what you would do for the other person, not what you do in general.”
When I read T.M. Frazier’s first book, The Dark Light of Day, in 2013 and I was hooked. I love this author’s writing style, the way she can write so much beauty among all the ugly content she writes and the feelings her books evoke. I feel like I have been waiting for the longest time for her second full length novel, King- but let me tell you guys something… KING was worth the wait!

 photo 2afc7378-ce7c-49ec-b172-3b43ca99693e_zpsymlj529y.jpgOur story starts with a young Doe. A girl with no memories. She doesn’t have anywhere to go, doesn’t know who she is and is alone in the world.

I don’t know where I came from.
I don’t know how hold I am
I don’t know my real name.

Some way or another, she finds King.


Brantley King is a tattoo artist fresh out of prison. He is a criminal and has been for a long time. He and his partner, Preppy, have a business. They started from the very bottom when they were young but they were determined to make it. Now they’re on the top. They do what they want when they want to do it, no questions asked. When King first sees Doe, he doesn’t know what to think. He feels something for this girl. She makes him feel something different.

“Because you’re mine.”


This is so much I want to say about this story- SO MUCH! But at the risk of spoiling something (trust me, this is one you don’t want spoiled) I’ll just talk about the characters and all the things I loved.

She was willing to do what it took to survive at all costs. And I love that as scary as King could be, she stood up to him. She didn’t cower and take his crap. King is a tough nut to crack. There are so many sides to this man. You see him as a ‘bad guy’ at first, but he is definitely not all bad. Doe brings out an eternity different guy.  I love the connection they share and their chemistry is off the charts! Also, the more you hear about King’s past and what’s really going on in his life, the more you’ll feel for this powerful yet broken man.


As much as I loved the main characters, there are two secondary characters that were also fantastic. Preppy and Bear. Preppy is one of those guys that will make you laugh out loud in every part he’s in. He has the foulest mouth and you never know what he’s going to say. He’s a true friend to King and Doe in every sense of the word. Then there is Bear who is a biker and also a friend of King and Preppy’s. I think a Bear book would be pretty great. I’d love to know more about him.

I love getting those twists thrown into books that I didn’t see coming. And I for real did not see that coming! That cliffhanger makes me desperate for the next book. August can’t come soon enough!

If you are a fan of dark romances, read this book. If you want to be captivated by fantastic writing, read this book. If you like the raw and gritty, read this book. If you love twists and turns in your stories, read this book. I guess when it comes down to it, I would tell all my fellow readers to read this book! I loved it from start to finish and it’s one I highly recommend.


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.


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.
