WOW, YES SHE DID IT TO US AGAIN!! The cliffhanger...UGH... even knowing it was coming it's still killing me!
Obviously I love Preppy and I am so glad that the author jumped back & forth between now and then. I loved that we got to see what Preppy had going on from the beginning of this series when he wasn't present in the other books. We get to see a deeper side of him for sure. I think what I love so much about this series is that these guys are all so raw and rough but they all have a little bit of a soft side...and I mean a little bit lol. Preppy's story was painful, Hot and even a little sweet all in one. I can't wait for Part 2.
Ok so narration... While I liked Lance Greenfield's narration, he just wasn't the right Preppy for me. I agree that Preppy needed his own voice but after the wildish almost a little nerdish voice that Preppy had in the last 4 books, his voice in this book was a little to mellow I think. I would love to listen to him narrate more books that fit his tone better. Kirsten Leigh was great for Andrea!

Well I thought I knew Preppy from the previous books when he came across as nerdy, charming, funny, social, sweet, sexy and a bit crazy too.. but underneath his colorful bow ties and suspenders he's very damaged and broken.. and his story is a heartbreaking one. He covers up the pain from his dark past with good friends, good lays, good times, drugs and living his life from day to day without any expectations. Then he rescues the drugged up Andrea (aka Dre) who is equally damaged and equally broken and she's ready to end it all - but Preppy has other plans for her.
And this is the start of a dysfunctional romance because Preppy knows he's emotionally broken and he just can't keep Dre but that doesn't stop him from trying to save her from her first love.. Heroine. Dre knows she's hit rock bottom but slowly the crazy, demanding, hot and very sensual Preppy saves her - but it comes at a price.. her heart.
Multi-layered complex characters, a highly charged emotionally fraught storyline, some smokin hot rough sex scenes, dialogue that flowed naturally, good character development, humor, angst, drama and, out of the depths of despair, there was love. But the timing was all wrong because we're going to have to wait til the release of book 2 in Jan/Feb next year.. or even book 3 before we find out if/or how Preppy is going to come back from the grave to claim his HEA with Dre. Chapters were flashbacks to the past or present day scenes, dual POV and great narration.
Worth a credit? TM Frazier has written another riveting story to add to this gritty series and her ability to write such an emotionally deep storyline, emotionally damaged characters and an emotionally charged love story leaves me in awe of her talents. So, YES a very gripping and creditworthy listen.

I loved this audio of my little preppy not only did the story capture me from the beginning hearing Preppy come to life was amazing.

Preppy: The Life And Death Of Samuel Clearwater, part 1 is book 5 in the brilliant King series by T M Frazier. Preppy and Dre are great characters in this exciting, dark and thrilling story, and there's plenty of light relief with Preppy's one liners. It's at times harrowing, and extremely hot, you won't want to miss it! Oh and the narrators are perfect! I highly recommend.
that was very good. if you like the others then youll love this.😉😉. . .
I listened to this audio book less than a fortnight after finishing the book. I honestly didn't think it would be possible to improve on what TM Frazier gave us in print, but the narration was terrific, the pace perfect, and I'm sure I'll be listening to this at least twice more while waiting for Part 2!
Fave line: “Why do I have a gun?” he repeated, like it was the ridiculous question that it was. “’Cause throwing bullets by hand isn’t exactly effective.”
