Samuel Clearwater, A.K.A Preppy, likes bowties, pancakes, suspenders, good friends, good times, good drugs, and a good f*ck.
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.
This is the fifth book in the King Series and it’s meant to be read after Soulless.
“No! I hate you,” she spat, as I continued to tug her beside me.
“Good, you can hate me while I fuck you,” I said. “But first things first. My lesson obviously didn’t take in that brain of yours. You want what you want and I can’t stop you,” I said, as we approached the train tracks which were elevated on a mound of gravel several feet off the ground. The warning lights flashed orange, the neon reflective barriers dropped down to cover the service road, while the bells indicating an approaching train clanged away. “And since I can’t stop you, I’m going to help you out. Bullet in the head was so three hours ago. I’ve got something even better in mind now.”
“Wait. What?” she asked, her teeth chattering. “You…you wouldn’t.”
“Wouldn’t what?” I said, turning around to face her, almost losing my footing when I noticed the trail of dried tears on her cheeks. I looked away for a fraction of a second to regain my composure. “You think I wouldn’t kill someone?” I cocked an eyebrow. “You already know that I’ve been there, done that, bought the motherfucking t-shirt, doll.” Her eyes went wide and she made a move to step back. “Oh no, Doc, I read your letter and I saw what you wanted. And remember, I’m nothing if not accommodating.”
When I pulled her to climb the gravel mound her knees locked up so I bent over and picked her up by the waist, tossing her over my shoulder, carrying her onto the tracks while she beat on my back with her closed fists. When I got to the top I set her down roughly and she fell backwards onto her ass, bracing herself with her hands against the large pieces of gravel under the tracks.
The whistle of the train blew in the distance. It wouldn’t be long now. Dre made a move to stand up, but that wasn’t what I had in mind. I bent down and pushed on her chest, spreading her tiny frame across the tracks. I crawled on top of her, pinning her down with my thighs. I leaned over her, my chest to hers as we both breathed rapidly. She struggled underneath me to get up, pushing at my chest, but I wouldn’t budge. “Why the struggle, Doc? This is what you wanted, isn’t it?”
She glanced up at me as the train whistled again. Her gaze flipped to her right, where the single yellow light from the train emerged from around the corner, shining brighter and brighter as it chugged closer and closer. For a moment she stopped struggling, looking back and forth from the train to me.
“So what, you’re gonna die too?” she asked, hoping to appeal to my sense of self preservation.
I shrugged. “I get bored easily, maybe the devil will make me his errand boy or something.”
“Preppy, this isn’t funny. Get up and get off the fucking tracks,” she said, her concern shifting from herself to me.
I shook my head and yawned. She wiggled underneath me, and although there was a train barreling toward us my cock once again stirred to life. Maybe I should just rip down her panties and push inside of her. Train or no train, it would be one fuck of a way to go out.
“You have to choose, Doc,” I said, making my voice as serious as I was capable. “Life?” I asked, screaming over the sound of the train screeching against the track. I pushed my hard cock against her core and she gasped. Her trembling turned into a shiver, her mouth fell open. I glanced to the side at the blinding light of the approaching train as it bathed us both in a tunnel of light. I leaned down, so close that my lips were a whisper above hers, as I shouted, “Life? Or death? What’s it gonna be, Doc?” My hair blew around my face as the light grew brighter and brighter. “Answer the fucking question!” I demanded, my hands squeezing her shoulders, my fingers digging roughly into her skin. “DO YOU WANT TO FUCKING DIE?”
With only seconds left until we became shredded under the train, Dre closed her eyes and sighed. When she opened them again they were glistening, fresh tears spilling from the edges.
She started to speak, her lips forming the beginning of the word, but before it could fully leave her lips I stood, pulling her up with me. I lifted Dre into my arms and took a running leap off the tracks, my legs flailing in the air as we fell the seven or so feet. Dre’s decision still on her lips, her scream surrounding the air around us as we crashed down into the field.
“I wanna liiiiiiiiiiiivvvvvveeeeee.”
My Review –
5 Give Me Pancakes and Give Me Bowties!!
*I volunteered to review a Copy of this book from TRSOR Promotions*
Thank you so very much TRSOR Promotions!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! 😀
Having read all of the King Series I practically almost had a heart attack when this beauty landed on my Kindle!! Words can not even begin to describe my love for the one and only Preppy but hopefully my review will do it justice. I don’t think you can fully grasp the story and characters without having read the series because you’ll be missing out on A LOT at least in my opinion. So with those fellow book lovers in mind I’ll choose my words carefully. 🙂 When I first met Preppy in King I fell hard and I fell fast for the man who rocked a bow tie and loved pancakes. To get inside his crazy mind and learn things that I’d been dying to know made me so HAPPY!!
I would say that this book spans throughout the time that took place in the last four books. It’s through Preppy’s eyes but it’s not repetitive in the least bit but rather all brand new moments with familiar faces. You won’t be bored whatsoever!! Preppy : The Life & Death of Samuel Clearwater is about of course the man with the dirty mouth, sexy grin, killer bowtie, and lover of American Ninja Warrior Mr.Preppy Himself! It’s also about Dre Capulet who is at the end of her rope.
The fall is how they were introduced, The all too consuming pain is how they connected, and The cold hard truth is what sent their lives spiraling out of control.
You never know when someone will come into your life and knock you off your feet but when it happens you don’t want that feeling to go away no matter how scary or exciting it may be. These two main characters were kindred spirits in so many ways. Being inside both of their minds left my heart feeling every ounce of their pain and warming as I experienced every second of their joy. From the hell they both endured they held scars of past memories that wouldn’t fade away.
I found it to be heartbreaking, gritty, sexy, astonishing, hilarious, addictive, suspenseful, and quite phenomenal!! I thought I knew Preppy’s story but boy was I wrong!! This book will wreck you in the best possible way. It might even be my favorite one of the series to date!! That ending was sweet torture and as always Ms.Frazier is totally the queen of Cliffhanger’s! January 24th, 2017 can’t come soon enough!! 🙂
Will Preppy be able to except the love he deserves despite what he’s been through? Or will he push away the one woman he knows he shouldn’t keep? Will Dre be able to move forward from her addiction and painful past? Or will the taste for the next hit be too much and her demons take over? One-Click it Today to find out!! Seriously, don’t miss out on this series!! You won’t regret picking all 5 of these books up!! I hope you love them all as much as I do!! 5 Stars all around!! 🙂
PS : Because Pancakes. . . 😉
