Blog Tour {ARC Review, Excerpt, Giveaway} Tyrant (King #2) by T.M. Frazier

Title: Tyrant
Author: T.M. Frazier
Series: King #2
Genre: contemporary romance, dark
I. Remember. Everything.

Only now I wish I didn't.

When the fog is sucked away from my mind like smoke through a vacuum, the truth that has been beyond my reach for months finally reveals itself.

But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I'm more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King's bed.

Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know.

I will put the lives of those I love most at risk if I let on that my memory has returned, or if I seek help from the heavily tattooed felon who owns me body and soul.

I don't know if I'm strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day.

He's already saved me in more ways than one. Now it's my turn to do whatever it takes to save him.

Even if that means marrying someone else...

Tyrant by T.M. Frazier
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 **Because...pancakes.** STARS

“You did not take what was mine and not expect to pay in blood, sweat, or pussy. He took my girl. He wanted to take my life? His payment would be blood.”

I have to confess something. I was sceptical about this book. When I first read King, I immediately fell in love with the characters, the crazy twists and turns, but most of all Preppy and the beautiful love story. So, why was I not sure about this book? Well, because when a book completely takes your breath away that's like catching lightning in a bottle and I always thought lightning wasn't supposed to strike twice, but it did. Oh man, did it ever.

At this point I'm not even sure which book I like better.

Tyrant picks up right where we left off with King. Doe is taken back home by her father, boyfriend and son. King on the other hand is being arrested by someone who turns out to be no police officer at all.

The dynamic and feel of this second instalment is quite different from the first book. For the better part of the book Doe and King are separated, fighting a war on two fonts, if you will. Doe or Ray or Pup, whatever you want to call her, has to figure out how to reconcile the person she has become and the one everyone expects her to be, which happens to be mainly a mother. Talking about mindf*cks.

There are still so many open questions, but with the return home Doe finally experiences little flashbacks and remembers snippets from her former life. It is quite remarkable how Ms. Frazier put it all together. I loved the pacing with which she revealed the story and what a tale it is. I had so many 'WHAT...BUT HOW...I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING!' moments.

“I'm not afraid of you anymore, I'm only afraid of a life without you.”

King on the other side of town is fighting an uphill battle. He wants his girl back, maybe even get his daughter if at all possible and then there are some forces closing in on him he really can't handle at the moment. It's all very much a clusterf*ck.

In the end he remember who he really is - the bad guy. And once he does The King of the Causeway starts to kick some major ass and don't be surprised if he takes a few names here and there.

For me personally, this was a perfect book. It had it all. Insane revelations, smoking hot interactions between our lovely couple and some seriously smooth writing. But most of all, Preppy. Not going to say more, because if you haven't read books one....*huggles*.

What broke my heart and at the same time made me very excited for Lawless, was Bear's storyline. Should make for an interesting read if nothing else.

“You and me... We're a forever kind of thing.”

Tyrant is a gripping, fast paced conclusion for this two part series. I could not put this books down. It is an edge of the seat read with a storyline that will have your head spinning out of control. I'm absolutely serious about that. Once Ms. Frazier started to put the strings from book one and two together my mind felt a bit like exploding. It is pretty genius and I honestly didn't see it coming. Kudos to that!

*sigh* And we have another Book Hangover! Oh well...

He cupped my ass and lifted me up, wrapping my legs around his waist. “There was one point I’d made the decision to tell you the truth. I owed you that much. But then all the shit went down with Isaac and Preppy, so when I made the deal with your father for Max, I thought I was doing you a favor by giving you your life back and getting you out of all the shit that came with being in mine.”
I squeezed my thighs around his waist, rubbing myself against his hardness. I moaned. “But you weren’t giving me my life back.” I corrected. I placed my palms on his cheeks and held his face in my hands, searching for any sign in his eyes that what I felt for him might have been wrong, but instead what I found was a resounding need to fix what was broken between us. Tears formed in my eyes. “You were taking it away.” King’s lips parted. He ran his thumb across my lower lip, turning his head he kissed his way up my arm.  
“Goosebumps,” King observed, running his fingertips across my already stimulated skin. I bit my lip and stifled a moan.
“It’s just the heat," I lied.
"You've got that fucking right," King growled, bending my wrist behind my back, his lips came crashing down over mine. We were a tangling of lips, clanking of teeth, sloshing through the water to better line ourselves up with each other. It wasn't pretty.
It was need.
"I’m still fucking mad at you for letting me go,” I said into his mouth, while our tongues did things other parts of me throbbed to do.
King stilled and held my face away from his, our chests heaving in unison, my erect nipples rubbing against his hot hard skin as we panted together. Our breaths mingled in the air. He ran his hand down the side of my face and cupped my cheek in his palm. "I didn't give you away, Pup. I released you."
I stilled. "You released me?" I couldn't hide the hurt in my voice. For some reason, releasing me sounded worse than letting me go.
King ran his tongue across the tip of my earlobe, holding me tightly against his warmth. Chills ran down my spine and into my very core and they had nothing to do with the temperature of the rain.
"I tried to release you, Pup. For Max. But there was a major problem with that plan, and no matter what happened, it would never have worked," King confessed.  
"Why is that?" I asked, needing to know, but at the same time acutely aware of the pulsing between my legs. Relief and release was only a scrap or two of fabric away. Throbbing for me.
"The problem was…you never released me," King growled, crashing his lips to mine. He moaned into my mouth when I rubbed myself up against his straining erection. He pushed the fabric of my shorts aside and the second he parted my folds with his index finger, I shuddered. He plunged a long index finger inside of me, and for a second my eyes rolled back in my head until he withdrew it. I cried out in frustration, wiggling myself against him, needing him to make me feel anything other than empty.
