Publisher's Summary

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.
Andrea 'Dre' Capulet is strung out and tired.
Tired of living for her next fix. Tired of doing things that make her stomach turn. Tired of looking in the mirror at the reflection of the person she's become. Just when she decides to end it all, she meets a man who will change the course of both their lives forever.
And their deaths.
For most people, death is the end of their story.
For Preppy and Dre, death was only the beginning.

Oh the hangover.....Ugh

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!

THIS BOOK WENT WAY.. WAAAY BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS

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.
