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.

Review by Jenn

The Evil Ginger has done it again. Only this time, she’s not so evil. Well, as reformed as a twisted soul can be. In The Life and Death of Samuel Clearwater, she still gives us a wickedly dark story but she also gives us our beloved Preppy back and douses his story with deep emotion. This is a book you don’t want to miss.

Preppy is the 5th book in a series and you must read the four books before it (King, Tyrant, Lawless, & Soulless). Each one of these books is EPIC. The journey is one you will never forget. T.M. Frazier will have your jaw dropping, tears leaking, and hormones raging.

I wasn’t 100 percent sure what to expect going into Preppy. He’s a dark character with a wild sense of humor and T.M. Frazier likes to pull the rug from underneath us. All I knew was it was something I was salivating to get my hands on. So, I went in not expecting anything (Plot wise). I had no idea where the story would go. I couldn’t have predicted anything about how T.M. would tackle such a complicated character or where she would take us but it couldn’t have been more perfect. She switches up her style a bit with this book and shows us more of her range, playing more with the emotions of the story. And doing it so damn well.

Preppy is obviously a character that has been through a lot. Not only do we start to see the chain of events from the last couple of books revealed from his perspective but we learn more about his past and how he became the man he is today. You will feel the darkness from his world like his burdens are your own.

Andrea ‘Dre’ Capulet couldn’t be more perfect to round out this story. She’s fighting demons of her own. She’s feisty yet broken. Strong yet vulnerable. She’s Preppy’s perfect match. Dre may even give Ray a run for her money as my favorite of T.M.’s leading ladies. There is a twist in the timing of when these two met that I didn’t see coming and it adds more intrigue into the entire series.

I love this story. I love these characters. T.M. Frazier transports us to a dark and gritty world. The whole crew of characters have bonds that are unshakable. We see more of Bear and Preppy interacting one on one in the story and I absolutely loved that part too. You won’t be disappointed in this latest edition to the series. It deserves every bit of praise and hype that I’m sure it will get. I can’t wait to see where the rest of Preppy’s story goes. I’ll be waiting on pins and needles.

Review by Dottie

First and foremost – DO NOT READ THIS BOOK UNTIL YOU’VE READ THE PREVIOUS BOOKS IN THIS SERIES! This is about as far from a stand-alone as it gets! (Plus, there is a spoiler further down within this review as it is about a sequel of the previous books, so reader beware!)

That being said…if you haven’t discovered this series yet – where have you been? This series is gritty and dark, yet funny in a quirky sort of way, sexy, and intriguing beyond words. And yet, I have a certain love for this series that causes me to practically salivate every time I know a new one is about to be released. As far as I’m concerned, this is a not-to-be-missed series that, as long as you can deal with gritty, I cannot recommend it enough!

In Preppy, we become more familiar with his character (Preppy’s) as well as meeting a new character, Dre (short for Andrea). This book also switches back and forth between the present time and three years prior (to what we, who have been reading this series) know to be happening. It’s told in alternating points of view, which I have to tell you, was fascinating. Getting “into” Preppy’s head was something I have looked forward to doing for quite a while and this book did not let me down!

Have you ever wondered what it is with Preppy and pancakes? The answer is within this book. And have you pondered about why he dresses like he does, complete with a bow-tie? Yep, the insight is within these pages as well! I have always loved Preppy despite his sometimes “interesting” philosophies of life and his less-than stellar and sometimes not quite legal deeds. I have always understood he’s a bit of a tortured soul (this is putting it lightly) but he’s also a guy I would be delighted to befriend in my life if he wasn’t a fictional character. He’s so unique; you never know what he’s going to do and say next and I love that! He’s about as far from boring as a character can get! And despite the fact that he operates just a tad bit outside “the law,” (and yes, this is me being sarcastic), he’s got a tremendously good heart. He’s about as loyal as a person can get. He tries to do what he perceives to be the right thing as long as it fits within the parameters he’s built his life within.

And then there’s the new character, Dre. She’s a tortured soul too yet she’s so feisty that sometimes she made me laugh and sometimes I would feel myself holding back tears at what she’s endured. She’s written is such a way that it makes it easy to understand why she’s done the things she’s done (well, eventually as you continue reading this book). And when Preppy first really “sees” her, he reacts in a typical Preppy fashion…

The night has taken a turn for the worse when I showed up to Mirna’s house on the tail end of being robbed of my fucking plants. However, I was now straddling a naked chick on top of the water tower, which one of my favorite places in Logan’s Beach. Shit was looking up. Although, when I followed her up to the tower I hadn’t known she was planning to defile my sacred space by tossing her boney body off of it…I watched as she stood stark naked, with her face tilted toward the sky, and her arms out, like she was the king of the world on the front of the motherfuckcing Titanic. She was fascinating. The bitch was in rough shape. Bruises and dried blood patched all over her skin made her look like a puzzle missing some pieces…If I’d been a nanosecond later in making a run for her I’d be calling for clean up instead of sitting on top of her, caging her in with my thighs. Fuck, if she hadn’t been such a tiny waif of a thing, she probably would’ve pulled me over with her. “Why did you save me?” she suddenly asked, pausing her adorable struggling which was getting her nowhere fast. “Awe, that’s cute,” I said, peering down into her doll-like eyes that were so dark, they were almost black…”What’s cute?” she asked on a strained exhale. “That you think you’ve been saved.” “Well, I’m not dead,” she argued. “Yet,” I shrugged. “It’s hard to get answers from a flattened corpse. Trust me I’ve tried.” She growled and tried to free herself from my grasp, and that’s when I got a better look at the inside of her arms. Suddenly, it sunk in that this chick wasn’t just covered in bruises, those were pock marks. She wasn’t just some skinny bitch. She was a junkie. Bruised. Broken. Vulnerable. She was shaking like a fucking leaf, and with every tremble my dick grew harder until it was begging to be free from of its khaki confines. She gasped, when she felt me hard against her leg. “What. . .why?” I raised my eyebrows. “Really? Why? My cock knows I’m on top of a naked chick. It’s simple biology….

Ahh, such typical Preppy! This guy is a bit on the crass side, obviously, but there is something about this character that you’ve just gotta love. I’ve honestly loved this character since I first “met” him in King, and I’ve only become more intrigued and have enjoyed him more as time goes on.

As we know from the end of Soulless, Preppy has been missing and assumed dead for quite some time. We’ve heard “Ghost Preppy” voicing off about things as time as gone by that sound just like him in thought and style. And then, at the very end of Soulless, were those words that brought both shock as well as delight to all of us who were completely crushed when Preppy “died.” He’s a one of a kind character and I am delighted that reports of his demise were premature!

And then there’s the character of Dre. In typical T.m. Frazier style, this is also a multi-faceted character that was easy to care about and relate to on a very human level. She’s not “just a junkie.” She’s complex. She’s likable. She finds herself loving Preppy despite his character flaws. And honestly, I myself really liked her a lot. She had an interesting way to look at the world. When her grandmother gave her some of her beautiful vintage clothing…

“Where did you get all this?” I asked, clutching the most perfect high-heeled, black, platform pump to my chest…”We are going to get you all fixed up proper, and then we are going to go outside and meditate in the fresh air.”…The green and white sundress Mirna [her grandmother] had picked out for me had thick straps that snapped around my neck, and a squared neckline that pushed up my breasts and gave them a fuller, more rounded look…And of course, I was wearing THE platform pumps with bows. “Who says love at first doesn’t exist?” I whispered as I turned my foot from side to side, to better admire my new lovers…Later that day, Mirna gave me my first lesson in meditation. I was sans shoes in the grass, but every so often I’d open one eye and check to make sure they were still on the deck where I’d placed them, lovingly, in the shade….

So basically, Dre was almost a contradiction within herself. She’s a girly-girl who can get into the mud and get scrappy when she needs to. Fun girl! And when these two found their way to each other, it was a bit along the epic side!

Then there’s the fact that this is first of three books about these characters; you have to know it ends in a way that is completely unexpected – and it does! But then that’s part of the fun of reading a T.m. Frazier book to begin with. She keeps us guessing in the very best kind of way!

Review by Dottie

(Note: Although this is listed as the third in this series, it doesn’t take into account the book numbered 2.5 in this series. So actually, this is the fourth book in the Time series.)

When I read the very first book in this series a few years ago, I was wowed to the point of writing to the author to tell her that her book had completely touched my heart – actually, more like my soul. So in full disclosure, I will also tell you that I have developed a friendship over the last few years with this author. But, although she is dear to me, I would remind you that the reason I reached out to her that first time was because her first book spoke to me so strongly that I loved it enough to write to her! So, yes, I’m her friend. But I’m also a fan of her work.

In Shattered, we again meet up with a “gang” of characters that we first met in that very first book, Tethered Through Time. This is where I will tell you that if you haven’t yet read the other books in this series, I would recommend you stop right here and then go back and read my reviews for the other three books in this series and start at the beginning. I feel like if I picked this book up without reading the others first, I would be lost. I wouldn’t understand the dynamics between the characters as well as their histories, both together as a group as well as individual couples.

Throughout this series, there has also been another story that has developed involving crime and intrigue and it has added a delightful (well, except of course because it’s about crime, maybe delightful isn’t the best description) dimension to this series. These are not just romance books (although, of course, that is first and foremost). These books also have some action and some situations that can leave you wondering where it will go from there – and with that come twists and turns and things you do not expect. I would, however, also recommend you read them all within a reasonably short time of one another – I had forgotten a few details and wished I had had the time to go back and reread the first books to “reconnect” with the characters (although some I will remember forever)!

In this book, we experience the relationship between Josh and Julia (of whom we’ve met in the previous books within this series). Here’s the one thing I wasn’t crazy about – when this book starts, this couple already knows each other and although they had considered it casual at first, they were already “involved” as this book began. I honestly wish that I had experienced that “first time” within their own book (which is one of the biggest reasons I would recommend you read this series in order) right along with them. I truly enjoyed this couple but without the true “start” of their relationship, I felt a bit like something was missing. When they got together, albeit casually, it was in another couple’s “book” so we really didn’t learn about all those details we all know and love about the couple first meeting and being attracted to one another, etc. You know, that first spark that it’s fun to experience right along with the characters!

However, this is not to say that I didn’t appreciate and enjoy their dynamic, I did. But this is one of the biggest reasons this is not the book to start your adventure into this group of friends and family that I, for one, would really love to experience within my own life. They are a tight-knit group and I absolutely love how they all take care of each other as a group and individually.

I did, however, feel that when things began to change in their feelings for one another, we were front and center (and actually, isn’t that the most important part)?….

…The feelings I have for him run so deep and for the first time in my life, I know I’m in love….

Julia has a complex history, too bad she doesn’t remember it! She only remembers her life from around the time she was in college to the present. It’s a mystery, and her guy Josh, well he works for the FBI. What FBI hunk would you know who wouldn’t be intrigued with a beautiful woman with a mysterious past?

And Josh, he has demons that keep him up at night. He’s recently “come in” from being under deep cover and has seen things he wishes he could forget. Having Julia in his life becomes something that makes him feel like he’s healing. He sleeps better when she’s there. He feels better when he’s with her. She’s his balm, and a sexy one at that. And when she decides that maybe he’d be better off without her and her questionable past, he’s not so easily swayed…

“We can stay at your place or mine. Location doesn’t matter. Remember, I’m not easily pushed away.” “Okay,” she answers quietly…My body aches to be near her, but I’m afraid I might spook her by coming on too strong. She said take thing slow and wanting a kiss – I hope I have it in me to deliver just that. Her tongue darts out and moves slowly across her bottom lip before finding my eyes again…”I’m afraid to kiss you, Julia. You mean that much to me. I’m afraid I won’t be able to stop.” When my lips finally rest against hers, the deal my body made with my brain flies out the window. I haven’t touched her in more than a week now and now all I want is to devour every inch of her….

This is a case of two friends, who are more than friends in a casual way, becoming a whole lot more than that. It is a book about their hearts healing and finding each other and realizing they are perfect together, despite their histories and the chaos swirling around them.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned today it’s how much you and our family mean to me [this group of people have literally and figuratively become an extended family]. I love you too, Josh. It seems every time my world comes crashing down, you are there to pick me back up again.” “Always, love. Always.” We manage to get lost in a hug that feels more like the blending of two hearts. Like most couples in love our hugs always lead to more. Kissing Josh is always amazing but tonight there’s a notable difference. The connection is nearly electric and I couldn’t pull away even if I wanted to. What isn’t being said with words is communicated through heartbeats. And with each beat I imagine my heart is being pieced together again….

And this book wraps up (I think) the crime ring that has been ongoing throughout this series which has been intriguing and yet, a bit on the nasty side as all good crime stories are known to be. It doesn’t take front and center in the story, but it definitely influences the direction of the storyline.

As always, there is a bit of a lean toward some super-natural happenings in this one too and it completely works. Nothing over the top, just right!

I have to tell you I truly wish I knew these fictional people and was part of their “family” too. They’re an amazing group of characters and they feel like old friends. I look forward to these books as they’re released and feel like I’ve just spent time with some dear friends as I’ve read this book! I seriously encourage you all to read this series, beginning with the first book and following through this one if you feel like you want to be a part of this group of remarkable, talented characters.

Review by Jenn

Shattered by Time by B.A. Dillon is a sweet crime romance. It is part of a series but this is Julia and Josh’s first story of their own. Julia is a bit emotionally closed off but Josh won’t let that detour him. He’s a man on a mission, to love and protect Julia. Not a bad deal for Julia. Josh is an FBI agent with a signature smirk and Julia is a sarcastic fireball ready to keep him on his toes. My favorite kind of gal.

There are a lot of elements of intrigue in this story: a dash of paranormal, a hefty helping of crime plot, and heaping dose of loving bonds (both between our hopefuls and their makeshift family). B.A. Dillon creates realistic bonds that you wish were your own. These characters care about each other deeply. It’s a story that will keep you guessing because of complicated twists that work well for the crime elements. It’s edgy and different in ways that strengthens the story. B.A. is an author to watch. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.



B.A. Dillon is the author of the Time Series. Tethered Through Time was Dillon’s debut novel. A Vision in Time and It’s About Time followed in 2015. Shattered by Time is scheduled for release in fall 2016. Dillon also writes the column, “Turn the Page,” for the monthly magazine 85 South, Out and About, published in the Atlanta area. She is a devoted wife and mother of two grown children, and a dedicated middle school teacher. She loves music, words, books, and martinis!

Jenn’s Star Rating: 5 Stars

Review by Jenn

You know that feeling you get when you’ve just finished an amazing book? You know the one! While reading you get goose bumps and certain scenes make you literally sit up with anticipation. Where you feel a deep range of emotions that take over your own mind and heart. The author has pulled you into a fictional world you never want to end. You want to go knocking door to door to make sure everyone has heard about this book. I love that feeling and my latest read has shaken my world.

Prisoned by Marni Mann has everything you could ever want and then it’s completely flipped upside down. It’s a dark romance with layers upon layers of depth and hidden agendas. Everything inside of you is screaming for this couple to make it. Not to mention that their narrative is a second chance love story.

“I believe our soul mate is revealed only once during out life. Maybe it’s a glimpse of a stranger. Maybe it’s our best friend. The timing may not always be right. But, when they’re shown to us, we know it’s them. Then, life happens. We grow. We age. We develop scars. And we remember that glimpse. Some are lucky enough to spend the rest of their lives with that person. Some, like me, have only memories.”

Kyle (female lead) and Garin are childhood best friends. In a world of poverty and crime they rely on each other (and their other best friend) to survive life in The Heart (the housing project where they grew up). Friends couldn’t be any closer than these three. Tragedy is common in the lifestyle in which they were brought up and its hardship that tears Kyle apart from her childhood friends. But years later another forces Kyle and Garin back together.

That’s about all I can tell you as far as storyline goes. With these dark twisty reads, the less I tell you the better. Prisoned has easily joined the top of the ranks with some of my favorite books. Marni Mann outdoes herself with these characters, the writing, and the development of the story. It’s abundantly clear that this is a story written from the mind of a very talented woman. A leading lady “prisoned” has a whole new arc to the theme with this story.

Garin is outstandingly written. His protectiveness and loyalty to Kyle is easily something to swoon over but he’s got this dark edge that leaves the reader with their mouth hanging open, needing to fan themselves, and also a little uncertain that all his intentions are pure.

Kyle is naïve but hardened. She’s paralyzed by circumstance but also from uncertainty of the right thing to do. She’s fierce yet vulnerable. She’s trustworthy yet dishonest. She’s a complicated character that brings layers of facets to the read.

I can’t say enough commendable things about Prisoned and Marni Mann. I wish I could go into depth about this story without giving away the magic of ignorance that you need going into this book. If you like dark with heart, a story twisted with a strong story and shockers than Prisoned is perfect for you. You’ll be hooked and wrapped up in the strong relationships of these characters. You’ll be invested in where this story goes and the aftermath of awe you’ll feel is guaranteed. I strongly believe Prisoned should be read by every dark romance reader and I give my deepest admiration for this author and her brilliant mind, alluring words, and complicated characters.

Synopsis

Her time is over.
Things are looking up.

She’s dirty and ugly.
He’s wicked but handsome.

Six months to toy with her.
Six months of vacation and a ton of money.

I’ll hurt her beyond repair.
I’ve been through much worse.

She’s difficult to control and doesn’t obey.
I’m done submitting to anyone or anything in this life.

I should hate her.
I should hate him.

The game has changed.

Dirty Ugly Toy is a novel that blurs the lines of right and wrong, deals with abuse, contains dubious consent, and adult subject matter. If you are sensitive to violent sexual situations, the book may not be suitable for you. Some parts of this book are not easy to read and are not intended for everyone. However, those that keep an open mind and stick with it will not be disappointed.

Jenn’s Star Rating: 5 FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC Stars!!

Review by Jenn

It has been a while since I’ve read an author, new to me that I LOVED this much. I devoured this book and when it was done, read three more books by K Webster. Dirty Ugly Toy was simply amazing. This is a dark romance so you have to be up for that challenge but I simply love the dark side. If you do too and you haven’t read Webster… well you need to leave this review right now and get to it! Trust me!

Jessica “Bunny” is a girl on the run who fell into life on the street. Drugs took over her life. She is willing to do anything to get her next fix. This makes her the perfect target for Braxton, who finds girls at their lowest and turns them into his perfect toy.

Doesn’t sound like much of a romance, right? Well it is dark romance and there are so many more layers to the story, some apparent and some hidden in suspense and secrets.

Jessica is feisty and we get to see her true personality emerge as the drugs leave her system and the story progresses. Braxton is an evil man, seemingly incapable of emotion or caring for another in a romantic way. Jessica is seemingly blind to Braxton’s darkness. Or is she? Maybe she sees something that we don’t.

This book captivated me. I was up late reading pages as fast as I could. The writing is twisted and amazing. K Webster’s writing style jumps out at you and it’s obvious your reading words from someone with true talent at what she does.

While I do love the dark side of romance I’m not someone who is really drawn to the captor stories, or Stockholm syndrome stories. I actually put off reading K Webster because the book descriptions sounded like that would be exactly what I was getting but two of my book buddies (Hi Marni and Julie!) bullied me at a bar until I gave in. Thank freaking goodness they did. I don’t really like being proven wrong but when it leads me to amazing work like this than I’m okay with it Great with it, actually. While many of K Webster’s books seem to have this running theme…they don’t really (of what I’ve read). Especially this one. The warning label on this story clearly says the novel contains “dubious consent” and this is true but it’s not the kind of thing were the guy has kidnapped a girl and keeps her locked in a cellar with no free will. There are also so many layers to the story that there is so much more to the characters, story, and situation of however Jessica ended up with Braxton.

I’d also like to say (now after reading 3 other K Webster books that were not linked to this book and all had a variation of the captor theme) that each book was so different from the next. Each book had its own unique and fresh story.

This book was beautiful in a way that only a twisted dark book can be. When the powerful light shines through it makes all that heavy darkness so worth it. Plus, I love sitting on pins and needles through the hard stuff. There is a twist at the end that I didn’t see coming and normally I pride myself on being able to predict where the story is going. Not this time and not with this book. No way. I am so glad that I have passionate friends who don’t let me miss out on something amazing. I hope I can do the same for you and convince you this story is a MUST READ. So go, now! Dive into Jessica and Braxton’s Dirty Ugly story. I’m sure you’ll love it just as much as I did.

Synopsis

I thought losing my memory was the worst thing in the world. Forgetting who you are, and where you came from was like driving on a road with only right turns. All leading in the same direction. A direction I wanted to avoid, a dark tunnel that I had to enter if I ever wanted answers.
Losing my memory wasn’t the worst thing in the world. Learning, who I was, and the secrets I had kept was way worse. The unbearable pull and the passion we shared, mixed with the past that I didn’t want to remember, created a whole new storm. The perfect storm of two kinds of crazy. Stupid little fish.

Review by Jenn

How you feeling after that Suit cliffhanger?! It was a doozy but speaking now from the other side I can tell you it’s worth it. Especially now that the full series is already available to you. Slut is book two in the Twin Trio by Jettie Woodruff.

This series, this book is an outstanding story that will pull you in from page one and keep you up late into the night. These characters are complicated in a way that has your emotions running all over the place. You’re happy one page and angry on the next.

In this second book though we get to see a little more development with the characters. They are pulling things out of each other that they are surprised by themselves. Gabby is starting to remember bits and pieces and some of the holes are being filled in for us. Paxton finds himself in a position he never thought he would… falling in love with his wife.

Paxton made love to me uncaring of anything between us. It was amazing, something beautiful I shared with a man that I shouldn’t love. With a man I’d die for. Paxton had my heart and he held my soul in the palm of his hand. Paxton invaded my space, all of me, and there wasn’t a damn thing I could do about it. I was in love.

Some of our questions begin to get answered but those answers bring about more questions. The plot continues to remain fresh and constantly has us on our toes. There are zero areas in this series that are slow to read.

The plot problem solving, how Jettie Woodruff reveals the twists and turns to us is something I also admired. Dreams, deja vu, and even a hypnotist. I loved it all.

I can’t say enough great things about this series. It’s an edgy story with a twisted love tale. These characters are put through the ringer and it takes the reality of relationships ups and downs and ramps that up for an amazing fictional tale. For those of you who like your romance with a side of twisty darkness than this will be right up your alley. These books are a one of a kind, original love story like no other.

Synopsis

When my sister, Isabella showed up, just ahead of a tropical storm, nostalgia and a need to reconnect took us on a ride…directly into the eye of a different kind of disaster. I woke from a coma unaware that I even had a twin, and married to a man with two little girls. Although I fell madly in love with the children that I didn’t remember, I didn’t feel like I belonged with Paxton Pierce. I couldn’t be who he wanted me to be no matter how hard I tried. But things aren’t always as they seem. I fought my own demons, trying not to be the submissive he required me to be, yet I craved it like a drug. I wanted him.
Once upon a time I was an identical twin.
And then I wasn’t.

Adult content. Not a vanilla romance.

WHAT DID I JUST READ? Perfection. Complete and total perfection that grabbed my insides and twisted them into knots. An intriguing story full of plot twists with an original storyline is exactly what I just read with Suit by Jettie Woodruff. My mind was blown over and over again while reading. This is a romance novel like nothing I’ve ever read before. I encourage anyone who likes their romance on the edgier side to give Suit a try.

I’m going to start this review of saying that I’ve got to be a bit vague in some of my points. This is a romantic suspense with twist after turn after twist. So there is a reasons I’m not going more in depth with the points I’m making and that is to avoid spoilers.

My emotions wavered a lot during the beginning of the book. Not my emotions about the book (at all) but my emotions toward the characters. You’re purposely left in the dark concerning a lot of things to do with the plot and I wasn’t sure where the book was going to go.

Paxton Pierce is a complicated man. At first I kept waiting for a second leading man option to enter and whisk Gabriella away from her horrible husband. Then even while I, myself the reader was angry at Paxton, I didn’t want him to go away. I needed to know more and all the gritty details of what the hell was going on.

This book is also different because our leading couple starts off as just that… already a couple. Husband and wife. While they are already married when the book begins we still see a relationship between them begin for more than a few reasons, that I’ll just keep to myself.

Gabriella’s character is someone who has more depth than most stories I’ve ever read. There is an insane amount of reasons why we see so many different sides of who she is. The woman she was before the story takes place. The woman she’s growing into as the story develops and the girl she was as a child. Her memory loss takes the reader on a ride because Gabby can go so in-depth about her emotions and not give away plot twists to the reader because she is in the dark, just like us.

This is a story that sucks you right in from the start. You’re tossed around on a wild ride of tricky plot arcs and dark storylines. You hate Paxton one minute and then he’s got you hot under your collar with the plethora of STEAMY scenes. You effortlessly route for Gabby throughout the entirety of the story. You read a story like this and your brain fills with conspiracy theories and hardcore emotions.

I knew I had found something remarkable right from the first chapter. I’m hooked and I’m continuing along with this series for sure. There is no way I could not NEED to know what happens, to find out how it ends. My greedy hands were fumbling with my kindle the second I finished in order to go and grab book 2, Slut.

This story will blow your mind and I believe it’s a fictional journey you have to take! Just hang on and enjoy the ride!

Review by Jenn

Turn it Up is the conclusion (Book 2) in The Detroit Love Duet, following Set the Pace. Kim Karr left us hanging in a heart stopping, kindle throwing way at the end of Set the Pace and Turn it Up picks right back up at the action where we left off. Thank goodness! Kim Karr is an author I will gladly wait out a cliffhanger for and Turn it Up proved that wait was worth it.

Charlotte is our leading lady and she’s a sweet girl next door type. She’s been through a lot though and she’s got a tough streak with a heart of gold. She’s the type of character where you can easily believe she brings out the best in all those around her and that’s exactly what she does.

Jasper is our white knight with a bit of an edge. Although his beloved town seems to have turned their backs on him. The knight has been knocked off his horse but Jasper isn’t one to go down without a fight. He’s determined to make things right in order to finish what he set out to accomplish as well as to keep Charlotte safe and happy.

These characters are amazing. Charlotte and Jasper are the perfect second chance love story and all of Jasper’s friends bring a different element to the story that brings life to the words on the page. It feels like we’re reading about a tried and true family with this group. This group of men rally around Charlotte when she needs them most and they welcome her into their group. Jasper and Charlotte easily find a groove as a couple within this family.

However not much else is easy for them. In fact, everything is a bit of a mess right now for them but that’s the drama and intrigue we love about reading. The who done it and whys will have you reading as fast as your mind can process and turning pages late into the night.

I love these duet type books. Even when the first one leaves us hanging a bit. I might be a masochist but I love a good cliffhanger. There is nothing better than that anxiety rising into the pit of your stomach as you realize you’re nearing the end and there is no way things will end wrapped in a neat little bow. Then when an author like Kim Karr gives us the follow up (as is Turn it Up), we get that much more satisfaction when we finally learn where the story takes leads. Kim Karr is a go-to author for me and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. I wasn’t disappointed and I’m sure you won’t be either.
