Dre was just a beautiful stranger when Preppy saved her the first time around. Now, he has to save her again, but she's no longer some stranger, she's family, and he has no idea who or what he's up against.

What he does know is that putting his family back together is the only acceptable outcome.

T.M. Frazier ends the epic ride in the final installment of the King Series without disappointment - leaving me with tears in my eyes, heart in my throat, mind in the gutter, and a figurative cigarette
With this INCREDIBLE series coming to an end, I had NO IDEA how to approach this final installment. T.M. Frazier sets the bar with every single release, and I knew Preppy, Part Three would be no different. When this came across my kindle, all I did was stare at the cover. It was like I was in a daze and the only thing that existed was this book. I knew it held the epic conclusion to one of my all time favorite series, but I didn't realize I would be so emotional without even cracking the first p ...more

Growing up Grace had always told me that you can be a bad boy and still be a good man. I think I was finally understanding what that meant.

Samuel Clearwater, aka Preppy is back in his final book and better than ever! It’s no secret that I’ve adored Preppy from the first moment I met him, and my love for him has only grown with his books. In the last book, Preppy and Dre were happy and everything was good… until the last few pages. I was on pins and needles waiting for this book

I wish I could give this book more stars!
I thought I couldn't love Preppy any more...
I thought I knew all there was about Preppy...
Prepare yourself for Preppy 3!
T.m. Frazier has outdone herself with the beautifully painful romance of Preppy!
Of course we learn more secrets about him as well as other characters in this series, including some very unexpected new surprises!
Better to go into this book blindly!
The conclusion to Doc and Preppy’s love story was emotional and all consuming!

Yet again, T.M Frazier has blown my mind with Preppy. He's such an amazing character, and in each of his books we've gotten to learn about a different side of him. In Part Three we get more of his kickass behavior, but this time with more of a softer side to him.

I fell in love with this author when I first read The Dark Light of Day but after reading Preppy's stories I now have a hardcore crush on her. She takes this dark and brutal story and somehow makes it beauti

Preppy Part Three is the seventh book in the KING SERIES. Although the Preppy books (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3) can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading this series from the first book to grasp the intensity of the relationships and the full story arc. The King Series is gritty, raw, real, romantic, action packed, and utterly unforgettable. Preppy is by far the most dynamic character of the bunch and
I cried. The second I finished this book and read those last three words, it all suddenly hit me that I'd just finished not only this book, but this series, a series that has took me completely by surprise by how much I loved it, and a series that has also helped me get through some troubling times in my life. It's a series that's had me feeling so many different emotions, and has left me with my mind blown, my heart racing, my heart breaking, and has had me just generally going crazy many, many ...more

I've currently got this song in my head: Boyz II Men - It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday

I'm finding it extremely difficult to write this review. I'm finding it hard to let these people go. I guess the same can be said whenever an epic saga reaches its end because no one wants to say goodbye to their most beloved characters. And this isn't just a farewell to Preppy, although that one cuts real deep, but it's sayonara to King, Bear, Ray, Thia and Dre too. The o

Aunque el segundo libro me decepciono, igual me muero por leer la continuación.

I have said from the very beginning I love Preppy and his damaged soul. Then I met Dre and loved how he helped her overcome so much. Then we had the time period where they helped each other and grew together.

This final installment felt like an epilogue at times. However, every time I let down my guard I was pulled back in and frantically reading to see what would happen next. In true Frazier fashion you have to expect the unexpected and know she will always pull the rug out from under you.

T.M. Frazier created my favorite character of all time when she dreamed up Samuel Clearwater, then spent the next few years torturing him, and in the process, me. When Preppy bled, I bled. When Preppy joked, I cackled. When Preppy raged, I felt the cool steel of his weapon in my hand. And when Preppy finally got his happy ending, we both came down with a severe case of "allergies." It was a wild ride, T.M. Thank you for giving me, and Preppy, a soft place to land.

The third installment of The Life and Death of Samuel Clearwater felt most like an extended epilogue to me. An epilogue not only for our dearest Preppy and his love, Dre, but also for the entire King series. There's a few twists and suspenseful moments in this installment but I think what I loved most was the true wrap-up we get for the characters. Also, be prepared to dig into your memory banks here. There was a few parts I really had to think to recall- w

Fantastic! 5 mother-effin’ stars!

I loved this book! It’s a celebration of all that is Samuel Clearwater, and this book is pure, 100% Preppy (which is why it has to be 5 stars). The good, the bad, the irreverently hilarious, the badass, the romantic, the hero, the villain and the friend. What a truly unforgettable character!

Preppy and Dre's story was phenomenal!! I had so many emotions going through me as I read. Loved the whole thing. Fans of the series and Prep in particular will be elated by this final installment.

Raw, emotional, and everything we have come to love from T.m. Frazier. Samuel Clearwater aka Preppy stole my heart a long time ago. The fact that Mrs. Frazier was able to write a character that was so multi-layered, and remain true to the essence of such a character, throughout an entire series is beyond impressive. Part three was the perfect bow tie to top the Preppy pancake sundae. I loved this journey and a piece of my heart will remain between the pages of these stories.

This book was a good end to the series and I enjoyed it. The story flowed really well, I laughed so so much at Preppy and his Preppyisms. Some of the things that comes out of his mouth are just bloody hysterical.

We got a lot more insight into Preppy and his past and his great relationship with King and Bear. Seeing how they were and how they acted together was just brilliant. And whilst reading that I smiled huge at their antics

Whyyyyyyy did this series have to end?? 😭😭😭

This is the perfect ending to one of my favourite series EVER.

Preppy and all of the gang are at their best here. There are some real WTF moments, some classic Preppy laugh out loud moments but also some really fucking moving stuff.

I'm not ready to let these people go. I'm keeping EVERYTHING crossed these guys pop up in future Evil Ginger productions.

If there ever was a series that pulled every emotion out of me, it is the King Series. The prologue alone, gave me goosebumps! This series is beyond anything I could have hoped for. These characters became everything to me and will stay with me always. Each one bringing a different color to the kaleidoscope of emotions I felt throughout each story. Not only was this dark romance raw and riveting, it was full of heart and it has captivated me from the very first book.

Sometimes you don't know which way is up, but with all TM Frazier books that's par for the course. I seriously think this is her BEST BOOK YET!!!

"They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. The way back will be paved with blood."

It is always difficult saying goodbye to favorite characters, and Preppy is definitely one of my favorite. The beginning of the book was a bit anticlimactic, especially after Preppy part Two's cliffhanger, I had higher expectations. After that the first quarter of the book felt like an epilogue to Preppy and Dre's story. Thankfully the pace p

I cannot say enough how sorry I am to see this series end. Very few books rank so high on my list that saying goodbye to the characters has been sad, but Preppy is that series that you don't want to see go. I enjoyed every minute of T.M. Frazier's characters. From Jake to King to Bear and finally Preppy, they were all damaged, imperfect, and tough as nails, but they were loyal, loving, alpha, and everything you want to see in a book boyfriend.

Have you ever read a series, or watched a TV series and before you got to the last book or season you just couldn't be bothered with finishing? The King series is definitely not one of those series. If Tracey Frazier kept writing it, I would read anything King related. It is such an amazing series, that once schools out, I'll be doing a reread. I own the entire series in paperback and e-book. It is the only series I own that I will NEVER lend to anyone.

I did not read this story. I fell into a world in the dirty South where guns, drugs, and killing are a norm. I got to hang out with some of the scariest yet bad-ass mofo that live there including the master himself, Preppy. I felt like I was part of the gang just shooting the breeze. It was so much fun hanging out with them that I didn't even mind that nothing really happens until the last 80% of the book.

An amazing action packed punch to the heart. I will miss these characters so much! I have traveled through every suspenseful trip to death and back and now they feel like part of my family.

T.M. does not disappoint in wrapping this series up. This is an epic ending to a phenomenal series of books. It is suspensefully tragic right from the first words, picking up right where part two left us hanging off that cliff.
