This story was an ok read for me.
The relationship between Brianna and Duke was kind of hard for me to fully love.
This book reminded me a lot of the Out Of Line series by Jen McLaughlin. This book kind of had the same story line. But the MC in that series wasn't overpowering like Duke was.

Ok... Right off the bat... Duke just wasn't sitting right with me. The whole hospital stay with Brianna was a little much. He came on way to strong and way to fast. She knows virtually nothing about him beside

Protection never looked so HOT !!!

My god I can't stop drooling over Duke Thrasher! Oh man that man makes your panties weep! This book was very well written and you will absolutely devour it! I hope we get to hear about the rest of the guys too! I'm not a spoiler so you are gonna have to read about Duke and decide for yourself! I can tell you I'm so jealous of Brie! Lucky girl! If I had a man like Duke I think I'd be getting into trouble on purpose just so he could save me. Over and over again h

Swoon worthy, suspenseful and HOT.

Thrasher kicks off quickly, the characters building their relationships without any hindrance- with an ease of comfort that reminded me of 2 people who hadn't just met, but had known each other their entire lives. Brianna Hamilton is a sassy and spoiled Florida gal, living life to the fullest, fearlessly. She's independent by nature, and even a tad bit bull headed. When a night out on the town lands her in the ER with a concussion, the last thing she expects to

Brianna and Duke meet when she is injured while out at a bar by a frat boy who was apparently drunk and stumbling around. Duke comes to her rescue and insists on staying with her throughout her hospital stay to make sure she is okay. Brianna was very unlikable throughout this book. For a 24 year old she was immature, manipulative and downright obnoxious. She spends her father's money like it's nothing and, although she claims she wants to stand on her own two feet, she buys furniture on her dad' ...more

This is the first book by K.S. Smith that I have read and OMG, this girl is going back for more!! The story line was amazing. The writing flowed so fast I devoured this book in a few hours! I was beyond happy having the chance to read this ARC. K.S’s writing is amazing, descriptive and on point. I freaking loved every minute of it.

Duke is totally my kind of alpha male that could overtake me at any time.. hello new book boyfriend!! Brie is a very strong female character and I absolutely loved her

K.S. Smith is one of my favorite people that I'm honored to call friend! I have read everything she's written, this being one of the top books on my readers list. I fell in love with Duke Thrasher, and not just a little, but a lot. I've laughed, I've cried, I've gotten upset, in fact, I think I've gone through every emotion.

The base of this story is very enjoyable, it is also fairly predictable with only one true plot surprise. Duke Thrasher is dark and brody which is super sexy. He's a bad ass protector who is very secretive about his life.  I love Thrasher, great hero. 
Brie is a different story, I don't like her.  She's early/mid twenties, a teacher and very very immature.  Her conversations with Megan read more as hs cheerleaders than adult teachers. She throws temper tantrums, lives at home in daddy's house and

Received an ARC by the author is exchange for an honest opinion.
This book was great. There is no cliffhanger at the end but, im hoping to
get more on these characters in the future. I dont want to write anything that will
give the plot away. I'll just say it was really good, the characters are believable
Brie falls for Duke and finds out that he has been lying to her for quite a while.
She ends up getting herself in quite a bit of trouble after she makes a big decision.

Love it 100 million times.

I fell in love with Duke Thrasher as fast as Brie did. He's hot and alpha and I cannot ask for more.

The plot is great! Duke and Brie had a whirlwind romance but the challenges and the lies had made up perfectly for the meat of emotions that I was looking for.

One thing I could have just wished for is that I hoped Brie had told Duke about her random hook up with John.

Nonetheless, a five- star read from K.S Smith and I cannot wait to get to know more of her Marine guys

I was given an ARC book for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this book.

CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS ; WARNING: CONTAINS MATURE AND ADULT CONTENT

This story has just 1 POV. I have not read one of these types of books in a while that it was really refreshing to see just one side of the story.

The first line of Thrasher took me by surprise. I did not know what to expect from this book. I have read o

This book was Hot and Sexy!!! Duke and Brie have some serious chemistry. They meet at the bar, she has a altercation with a guy, who in turn,bumps into her sending her to the ground. Duke is there to make sure she's ok and takes her to the hospital. She is thinking he is a knight in shining armor but really he's not. She continues to hang out with Duke and due to his schedule, its hard to find time but they make it work. You soon find out that Brie is the governor's daughter and I know you are t ...more

If you read this as a fun sexy read it is great. Thrasher is a crazy over the top Hero from the get go, to be honest he is a bit scary stalker at first. But as the storyline settles down he is definitely a sexy alpha male, In addition to that there are a bunch of other lovely alpha males in his security team who are also sexy and sweet.
There are flaws in the story though and they prevent it from having high markings.
Brianna is a 24 year old teacher and you wonder how she can have that responsi

Thrasher is amazing! you will immediately connect with the characters. and this is one of those books that once you start you cant put it down and then when its ended you get depressed cause you want more and its over. For Once i kinda wish there was a cliffhanger cause i know there would be more Duke! but im kinda ready and hopefully we get to know more about gunner.

Brianna is a teacher but she likes to still go out and party, im mean come on she is still young,so while her an

This was the first book I have read from this author and I enjoyed it. There were definitely some parts I felt were a tad rushed and a certain situation that occurred I felt just kind of was dropped and never discussed again. BUT - the story was good.

Duke is like one of those sour patch kids - sweet and sour - or in his case sweet and totally hot, rough, sexy alpha male. Brianna - is "sheltered" in a way because of her father's career. So when she makes the decision to "break free" th

Brianna is out with her best friend when she is knocked down by a drunk guy at the club. Duke comes to her rescue and takes her to the hospital. There is a sizzling chemistry between them and they start seeing each other. I loved the moment when Brianna first visits where he works and I really liked his team. They were hilarious and also very sweet to Brianna. They share some scorching hot moments and Duke is quite the naughty talker. Then Brianna finds out that Thrasher has a secret and it chan ...more

I loved this book from the very beginning. from the way they met to how He stood by her.
Thrasher is HOT, He's protective and will do whatever it takes to make sure Brie is safe.
But keeping her safe may cost him the one girl he falls in love with.
Brie is the daughter of High profile parents who will do anything to keep her safe. even if it means
having her watched without her knowledge.

Brie's interactions with her Best Friend Megan had me laughing, I

I have to admit that TRASHER is the first book I've read from this author and I really liked it! I can't put it down.
K. S. Smith has pulled me into different kind of emotions while reading this book. One moment, I like Brianna and then next, I want to pull her hair and scream "How could you?" but when it comes to Duke Thrasher, it is love at first read. Haha I really love that guy and i can't find any reason to hate him.

This is the first book by the author that I have read. The story was not what I expected and I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the love story of Duke and Brianna and I had a hard time putting this book down, in fact I read it in a day. There is a great mix of Alpha males, that is a plus, also some "bromance" moments that I always enjoy. It was a great book and I will be looking forward to reading more from this author.

Oh what a fun, sexy, intriguing book. I love when a book has unexpected twists and turns. The love of the characters is heartfelt. You get roped in and then WHAM. When that moment came I was not sure how I was going to enjoy the book after that. Oh, but then it got so good and wild and then amazing! Thrasher is certainly one of my favorite lead males. Jump in, you'll love it.

This coupled with a recommendation by an author that I enjoy meant that this was a no brainer one click for me. KS Smith delivers one hot and sexy read.

A night out on the town goes horribly wrong for Brianna Hamilton landing her both in the arms of a sexy stranger and in hospital. Duke Thrasher is nothing if he is not gorgeous. But this myster

MY REVIEW!!! -- 5 STARS
So this is my first book from K.S Smith and I honestly didn't know what to expect! Brianna has a spoiled life. Spoiled in many ways actually, She has everything she could ask for - financially that is. I think she is also spoiled in the way because of her fathers job she in encased in a box, not being able to breathe or live the way she wants to and she is rather lonely at times, she however has her best friend there for her to help. Duke Thrasher?.. Duke...Thrasher... H
