Publisher's Summary

Homeless. Hungry. Desperate. 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, sex, 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.

I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK WITH A FEW COMPLAINTS

Any additional comments?

First I don't know if this bothers anyoneelse but HOW IN THE MUCK DO YOU CATCH A DUDE YOUR FALLING FOR GETTING A BJ AND THEN HAVE SEX WITH HIM 40 MIN LATER. I hate when women are written this stupid . It may seem silly that it pisses me off but I'm almost done with the book and this stupid shit happens. I was ready for King to say "Look baby Girl, You and this sweet NaNa is MINE BUT NOOOOOO a monkey tool chest had to be thrown into the story.I had to take a break but up until then I was loving this shit. Im sure by the end I will be back in love but damn make these women stronger with back bones.

BE PREPARED... VERY PREPARED AS IT'S AN EPIC RIDE

Firstly, if you'd asked me at the start of this listen what my opinion was then I would have said awful 1 star raw, gritty, toxic, dark and downright violent. But, slowly, as I got caught up in this well described story, I became emotionally invested in the characters, their back-stories, their dilemmas, the dynamics and the non-stop continual hit to my senses and I knew it was going to be a train wreck.... but I just couldn't walk away.

Now I've listened to a lot of Alpha books.... but NOTHING, absolutely nothing, could have prepared me for King who was way... way... waaay past a mere Alpha male and took it to a whole new undefinable level. He was a 27 yr old hard, obnoxious, foul mouthed, violent ex con and tattoo artist who had snorted, puffed, murdered and screwed his way into prison. He was gorgeous and tattooed but had a nasty temper, mean attitude and was unforgiving. After 3 yrs he was now out of prison to his raunchy welcome home party thrown by his two best buds - Preppy, his weird and wacky Partner in crime who he'd known since he was 12 and who was usually high on something and Bear the Vice President of the Beach Bastard's MC.

Then there was terrified, hungry and malnourished Doe a 17/18 yr old who had woken up on the Streets with nothing..... which included her memories and, because of the unhelpful Police and the unhealthy Social Services, she was just another Jane Doe surviving on the streets. She met a Hooker who told her how to survive so, with a game plan in her head and her heart in her mouth, she ended up at King's party but in the blink of an eye everything went to Hell..... and Doe became the unwilling, naive and scared property of Satan himself (aka King).

So much drama, angst, heartache, tears, blood, shocks, surprises and devastation followed that words just aren't enough to cover it but in amongst it all evolved a friendship, a love and a mismatched dysfunctional family unit. However, two betrayals, led to rape, bloodshed and a WTF and a HOLY SH*T of a moving cliffhanger. Make no mistake - this is a very raw, very seedy, very graphic and very heavy listen - it's filled with foul mouths, sex and violence with no romance and yet, somehow and slowly, it morphed into a touching, tender and heartbreaking story as, in the end, everybody suffers and laughter turns into tears. Dual POV's and some great narration.

Worth a credit? This is a hard-hitting shocking listen, you better be sure your senses and heart can stand the heat, the emotions, the shocks and the strain this listen will evoke but what an intense story. From once thinking that I was going to return it because it just wasn't my sort of listen to switching my thoughts to it being a 5 star creditworthy listen took some skilfull writing and a very addictive, harrowingly and all-consuming story. And I don't want, but desperately need to listen to book 2 now.

Wow! Just WOW!

What an AMAZING story! I absolutely LOVED it! However, I'll admit I've had this audio in my library for months, but put off listening to it due to the reviews. I was afraid it would be too dark, and I don't really like books involving teenager girls. (Only because I'm older, relate better to more mature characters, and have a teenage daughter.)

T.M. Frazier did an outstanding job with the romance, suspense, and characters, but I loved the writing the most, and felt the plot and characters were well developed. Frazier strings you along, and keeps you hanging onto each word with all the suspense, and little twist throughout the story. If I was to ever listen to a story twice, this story would definitely be one of them.

While this story is told from Doe's and King's POV, you get to know and fall in love with the other characters in the story.

Molly Glenmore and Rob Shapiro's performance was OUTSTANDING! They really brought this story to life, and made the audio experience 10X's better!

This was not the darkest MC I've listen too; however, it's filled with language, violence, and graphic sex scenes, but well worth the time, credit or sale. I plowed right through books one and two, and will continue on with the rest of the series. If you like dark MC romances, this is one you do not want to pass up. It is sure to evoke many emotions! I'm definitely recommending this story to my friends!

Easily forgettable...

I was not motivated to jump to book #2. This story for me was predictable, implausible and unrealistic, a sale buy and worth just that. A raging cliffhanger could not even tempt me.

WHAT A FANTASTIC STORY!!!!

This book was fan-freaking-tastic from start to finish! It's a bit rough around the edges, in terms of the gritty hand of cards these characters are dealt, but, it is one of the funniest stories I've listened to in a while. I laughed and nearly cried like a baby in some parts. I don't know if I'll make it through book 2 unscathed, but it will definitely be worth it!! Great, great story, I loved it.

WTF kind of train wreck is this?

So... the narrators were fine. No major concerns with the performance. As previous reviewers mentioned, it’s a cliffhanger — A very abrupt one. I could totally live with that if the story hadn’t been so painful to get through. I am no prude when it comes to sex in stories. I’m open to pretty much anything as long as it’s not abusive. This relationship is beyond unhealthy, and not in the “We’re both broken; let’s fix each other” way. The back stories had a lot of potential, but the effed up romantic relationship and the treatment of women is a complete turn-off. The sexy-time scenes weren’t even remotely good enough to save this as a guilty pleasure. I don’t know which main character I dislike more: the jerkoff, possessive, bully, pseudo-pedophile... or the spineless, immature (literally and figuratively) girl (not woman) who has zero self-worth.

Tl/dr: The romance and sex is lackluster at best. The treatment of women is atrocious. The relationship would make a victim of Stockholm Syndrome say, “Seriously, that’s unhealthy af.”

I really enjoyed listening to this book, the characters are very unique. Buyer beware there is a rape scene. Preppie ad such a unique sense of style and attitude you can't help but want him as your friend also. Worth the credit

Awesome. Loved it x

Loved this book almost, but not quite, as much as the first book! The storyline continues where book 1, KING, finished. It follows Doe and King, as Doe finally begins piecing together her forgotten past, and is again told in dual POV, my most favourite. I loved Doe and King, loved heir relationship, loved their strengths and loved that they love each other despite all their faults. This book is so full of passion, anger, violence, intrigue, along with plot twists I just didn't see coming. A hell of a roller coaster ride. So good to finally put all the pieces together. A full five well deserved stars. So glad that TM Frazier is writing a spin off story, Bear, so can't wait to hear his story.

Surprisely good!!

I quite enjoyed this book, it was suspenseful, sad and shocking at times! Really good levels of realistic humour, prepy was my favourite character, with great one liner!
I think this book is worth a read, it's kinda Son of Anarchy meets shade but better!

Breathtaking and emotional.

Omg! How have I put off this masterpiece for so long I have no idea. I first read Nine by TM Frazier and knew I had to read this book. It is EVERYTHING!! King and Doe, ahhh how my heart broke and what a maelstrom of emotions to follow. What and incredible story!! The plot is breathtaking and such an emotional ride, and oh my heart and the love and laughter from Preppy... but that’s another story.
The narrators did a fantastic job with this audio and I’m off to listen to Tyrant now!!!
5 stars all round!

More disturbia than romance

I read widely and have a really open mind when it comes to fiction, but I think this novel takes things a step too far. The "hero" is verbally and physically ABUSIVE, MANIPULATIVE and VIOLENT. It worries me that people would fantasise about wanting a relationship with a guy like this?

It is a pity because the underlying plot premise is interesting and I kind of want to know what happens to Doe but I suspect I will only be happy if she grows a pair and tells this guy to get %^$%#.

Fine but wouldn’t bother again - spoilers ahead

What to say? I liked the two main characters but there is a secondary character they kill off who really didn’t need to be and that person may have got me to buy the next book but there just isn’t enough chemistry there or a compelling enough story line to keep me coming back even though this ends on a cliffhanger.

Wow, wow and more Wow

this book has everything. it actually leaves you in a state of wanting more and more, it props you up on the edge of your seat and leaves you hanging there, tilting over the edge. it's very gritty and very sexualised, raw and scary in some chapters (I feel maybe a warning would of been appropriate for some parts of this book) but it really pulls you in, deep in. it was really hard to turn it off in some chapters. I didn't want it to end, and I'm glad that tyrant was up next.
Wow. so well written, well narrated. probably the best book I've read.

,what a book

A few minor flaws that you think the author has written but it turns out they were just secrets. heroine asks lots of questions and I love the hilarious 1 liners that slip in to the mix,
rob is an awesome narrator, right up there with the aidens and sebastians...and holly has a throaty sound that fits the gritty heroine and fits a gritty guy even better.
I knew the twist was coming and what it was and I think book 2 is in my figurings too. unlike book 0 which threw me for a twisty loop.
either way enjoying MC life and the trio of presenters in this series
And preppy..what a great voice, thanks to Rob and great writing...the one liners and quips are hilarious and awesome

Good listen!

The story was really good. I LOVED the narrators. They built real characters and I could tell the difference between all of them. This series is raunchy and vulgar, and awesome. The "heroes" are all bad guys. I laughed a lot too. I would recommend this series.
