Permission is the conclusion of Grim and Emma Jean's story.

War breaks out in Lacking. The streets aren't safe.

When an unexpected person from my past arrives in town, I'm forced to make a choice between the life I've always wanted, and a life I never knew I could have.

But am I strong enough to live without him?

Permission was an emotionally intense conclusion to the Perversion trilogy. Grim and Tricks have easily found a place in the hall of glory reserved for all of Frazier's beloved characters.

After the chilling preview at the end of Possession, I wasn't sure what was going to happen next. That's what this entire series was like. Just when I thought I figured things out, the author would throw me off course, stunning me with another revelation or another route the characters would be taking. Nothing was predictable except for the depth of love Grim and Tricks shared.

"I'm a monster, but you gave me a heart, and I'm giving it back."

Right from the start, it was obvious that Grim was much more than a soldier in an outlaw army waging war against a psychopath, trying to keep order in the streets of Lacking. When it came to his family, there was nothing that he wouldn't do for them. And when it came to Tricks... she knew him. Really got inside him and he never knew true devotion until her.

"My love. My life. My honor. My loyalty. For always."

While I am truly sad to let these people go, I'm more than a little pleased with how their story unfolded and how it ended. Pleased as freaking punch! If you love your stories to be full of heart while exploring the raw and gritty aspects of life, then this is one series you don't want to miss.

“My love. My life. My honor. My Loyalty. For Always”

This trilogy has got to be one of the best things I've read this entire year (2018). It was so intense! I devoured each book as quickly as possible. I love T.M. Frazier book's so much! She is the queen of the anti-hero variety! Tough guys with heart and girls with guts. I love her characters and the Perversion trilogy is no exception. If you haven't started this trilogy yet GET THE GODDAMN BOOKS! I love you T.M. Frazier!!!!

*Warning: This TRILOGY contains violence, consensual and nonconsensual sex, abuse, bad language, and other taboo subject matter.*

“Rage. Revenge. Redemption”

Holy good gods, this book is smashing! T.M. Frazier has done it again... She has delivered another exemplary book/trilogy to us 😁. It truly has it all; the raw dark grittiness that I crave, a little humor, a lot of angst, flawed characters, crazy twists, and turns, intrigue, suspense, and steamy scenes. It has just the right amount of violence, sex, and romance. Permission also obliterated my heart in a zillion tiny pieces 😭😭😭. I drowned in and immersed myself in the Perversion trilogy. I couldn't have demolished Permission faster, my eyes were glued to the pages and I just couldn't put it down. I really don't think I could have enjoyed this any more than I have. The conclusion was EVERYTHING I had hoped it to be and so so much more. I was 100% not disappointed in any aspect of this trilogy. I was entertained from beginning to end and Permission successfully answered all the questions I had and even threw in some surprises too. These characters are everything! I absolutely fell in love with Emma Jean and Grim and even more importantly, I fell in love with them as a couple. Emma Jean and Grim have my vote for the best book couple of the year. This was the perfect way to end this trilogy. I am going to miss these characters deeply that's why I can only hope Frazier will give us more Bedlam with Sandy and Gabby.

This trilogy is a must read and I can’t wait for Nine in 2019. Please hurry it up!!!

"My love. My life. My honor. My loyalty. For always.”

I love this trilogy by T.M. Fraizer and I’m so happy I found the time to listen to the last book. Frazier write the best raw and gritty dark romances. I love the twists, turns, and the epic romances woven into all the crazy! Tricks and Grim’s love story was definitely a wild one, but it had so much love.
“I love you, Grim. All of you … Bloodied hands. Beating heart. All of it.”
“Fuck, Tricks,” he hisses and pulls me up by the arms. We’re so close we’re breathing each other’s air. “It beats for you.”

After finishing the second book in this trilogy, I had no clue what was going to happen to Tricks, Grim, their family, or the town of Lacking. Things were intense to say the least. We get a lot of answers in this book and also a lot of surprises. There were several things I didn’t see coming at all.

I loved the direction this story took. I loved Emma Jean and how strong she was. I loved how devoted Tristan is to Emma Jean and how he would do anything to keep her safe and happy. Even though these characters are rough around the edges, they love so damn hard.

I listened to Permission in audio format and it was narrated by Aiden Snow and Stephanie Wyles. They both did a great job voicing Tricks and Grim. If you’re looking for a deliciously dark romance that’s twisty, fast paced, sexy and fun, pick up this trilogy. The ending was oh so satisfying!!

MY REVIEW: can also be found on my blog:

So this review isn't going to be written up how I normally would because I don't want to wreck it for you guys, just go into this blind it's the best way to enjoy this. I devoured it, literally inhaled it, couldn't put it down.

PERMISSION: Is the stunning conclusion in the ‘Perversion Trilogy’ series by T.M. Frazier. I picks up right where the previous book left off.

We finally find out who survived the bloodbath that occurred in the previous book and who died in a battle of bullets.

RAGE, REVENGE, REDEMPTION ➻ My death..My honor..My loyalty..For Bedlam..For brotherhood..For Always.

Yet again twists and turns that blindsided me, a guessing game of epic proportions that had me clueless until we’re given more pieces of a puzzle to complete, page by page sitting with bated breath wondering how this would all end, who would be left standing at the end of it all. Or who would be buried six feet under.

This trilogy was utterly gripping, raw, dark, addictive series that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat. I'm excited to see what this author brings us in the future.

Raw, gritty, dark, and EXCITING! This is one of my favorite dark reads this year.

I knew it was about to go down, but fecking hell...WHAT A RIDE!

Permission was such a thrilling page turner, from the very start. It’s filled with twists and turns and unexpected plot twists. I was captivated and held hosted by the plot, characters, and that ending! This is truly one of the most captivating series I’ve read in a while. It’s like a shot of pure adrenaline right to your heart. Fans of dark romance will devour this and love every second of it.

Grim and Tricks reign supreme! I’m completely impressed. Tm. Frazier killed it. Definitely recommended!

"I belong to Grim the same way he belongs to me."

Permission is the third and final book in the Perversion Trilogy. Grim and Tricks have been to hell and back and as blood continues to spill on the streets of their small town it will take everything they have to survive. As the battle rages, the innocent are caught in the crossfire. Tricks and Grim are torn apart again and shocking mysteries are revealed. Marco wants to kill Grim and keep Tricks for himself but Grim is never letting his Tricks go!

"My love. My life. My honor. My loyalty. For always."
Told in multiple POV, Permission is an explosive conclusion to the series. With multiple twists and turns in the plot, the pacing of the read is fast and furious. In true TM fashion, the passion between these two is intense and the connections between the characters are complex and thoroughly explored. Overall, Ms. Frazier is one of my go-to authors and the Perversion Trilogy certainly did not disappoint. Fans of action-packed romance do not want to miss this explosive series!

Talk about being on pins and needles throughout this series!!! This was the perfect ending for an explosive series that made you question other people’s ulterior motives, fall in love with the darkness, and pledge your loyalty and soul to a culture that was that ruthless but was well loved and respected.

In the previous two books, we went through some rough times between Tricks and Grim and there was this aura of uncertainty that held us in it’s frightening grasp. We entered the unknown, we saw the dangerous risks, and we felt their heartbreak through every struggle. These two went through hell and back, came out on top, only to be sucked back in once again and you think to yourself, can these two really have their happily ever after?

In the town of Bedlam where there is a war in place and Marco wanting king, Grim knows that no one is safe and that includes Tricks. Keeping her safe is his number one priority and destroying Marco is his pathway to that. What’s a king without his Queen?

I could not have asked for a better conclusion to this series and I loved that the author gave us one more surprise that left us speechless. Everything about this series was addictive, heart racing, sensual, and jaw dropping. If you’re looking for a dark and gritty series to start, then you need to try this one.

Permission is the final action-packed instalment in the addictive Perversion trilogy and what an episode this was.
So may shocking reveals are laid bare here: some that came as complete and utter surprises to me.


So, this begins almost instantly after the events of its predecessor and I for one certainly couldn't wait to get stuck back into this imaginative and addictive world.
The War in Lessing intensifies to the point that Grimm wants his Tricks anywhere but home and in danger.
He just wants her safe while he takes care of business and with certain big reveals in the picture Emma Jean is happy to comply with him for once.
So as Grim cleans up the streets EJ is being kept occupied by some surprising new players to the game.
I really enjoyed this particular turn of events as it was just lovely to see our girl catch a break for once: also this instalment I found was not as dark as the others and this made such a nice change.
My only slight grievance here was EJ's actions near the end of this: I felt she should have put her trust in a certain somebody here instead of keeping him in the dark.
I understood her intentions: but felt it smacked of simple cowardice on her behalf and that is what mainly stilled her tongue here: I felt she should have taken a leap of faith this information really was too important to keep to herself.
I had absolutely no concerns on his behalf though, Grim, really showed his true colours and depth of regard for his girl here loved that he was so unashamedly besotted and not afraid to show it.

giphy (1).gif

That's my only minus here: that and I didn't get the point of the lack of communication between the too when they were apart it made no sense to me at all.
I got that he was giving her space to grow but she never really asked for it.
I also really adored the epilogues here as well.
This was for me a fantastic trilogy: a huge thumbs up.
I voluntary reviewed an Arc of Permission (Perversion Trilogy, #3)

Grim and Emma Jean’s story has some interesting twists and turns.The main characters are unique. They are imperfect and raw and don’t try to be anything else. The secondary characters added value and progressed the story well. They peaked my interest and solidified my commitment to the Bedlam Brotherhood crew.

I won’t say I loved everything that happened but I was thoroughly entertained by the world Ms. Frazier created. The plot was strong in general but there were some actions that shook up the foundation of what I understood the support characters to be. I’m sure we will get to know about motivations and how certain actions work out long term but they definitely impacted the narrative of Grim and EJ’s story now.

The pacing and writing were again done solidly. The imagery and prose in line with the author’s style. I cannot wait to read what she comes up with next. Perhaps Sandy’s story? I sure hope so!

2.5 "Thank goodness this series is over" stars



I'm so glad to be finished with this craziness. I usually love all things T.M. Frazier. But this series fell short of her usual gritty, perverse style of story telling. It crossed over into the unbelievable, the ridiculous, and the suspend all reality realm.

How many times does the heroine need to be abducted and gang raped? So over the top!

What a ride!

Tricks and Grim have gone through hell. The war between Los Muertos and Bedlam is more lethal than ever and Grim and Tricks’s love is put to the test. I really enjoyed this book with its twists and turns. It was such a great conclusion to this trilogy. I am so happy Tricks and Grim finally got their happily ever after cause they deserve it.

I hope T.M. writes about Sandy and Gabby next. I am so intrigued by their relationship and would love to read a book with them as the MC’s.

Overall this is a great trilogy and one I highly recommend to all dark romance fans.

I know it's been one hell of a sexy, emotional, and suspenseful ride and T.M. Frazier holds nothing back in 𝐏𝐞𝐫𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧, the heart-pounding finale to Grim and Emma Jean’s story. You will get your answers, if you want them or not. You will discover gems that you might have missed along the way.

Grim and Emma Jean’s story is like no other, and this author continues to prove that the originality that she brings to the table with every story she graces us with, is top notch in every single way. I can't think of another author that I could compare her to, truly. Her writing style, her characters, her vivid imagery is one of a kind. I so enjoyed the scorching hot, gripping, and engrossing rollercoaster ride of emotion that Ms. Frazier has taken us on and I can't wait to see what insanity she brings us next!

What a perfect ending to my reading this year. T.M. brought it. Emma Jean and Grim was a love story that I will always remember. How love bloomed in the midst of horror and tragedy. Two broken souls found love in each other.

This has been one hella of year. The books I read really lifted my mood, made me think and showed me love in so many perspectives. In the end, love is pure, simple and universal.
If you like an angsty read try this series. It won't let you down.

Oh holy shit. This has got to be my favourite book of this series.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

Permission is the third and final book in the perversion trilogy and MUST be read in order. You can find the other two books here

Tricks and Grimm have always had a little piece of my heart but after this book they’ve pretty much took it all.

My love for Grimm grew so much though this book. His love, his protectiveness, his everything is what every woman wants from her man and seeing the lengths he’d go to just to protect the woman he loves takes hold of your heart and refuses to let go. I love that man, I love everything that he is. This books showcases exactly what this man has become.

My honor.
My loyalty.
My love.
My life.
For you.
For us.
For always.

Tricks, she’s an outstanding woman. The stuff she went through, what she goes through is insane. It would make any woman crumble and fall apart but not Tricks, never tricks. She’s strong, beautiful and a badass through and through. Her strength and courage shines in this book and I’m in awe of her.

Permission is fully loaded with vengeance, forgiveness, violence, war, love and family. It’s dark and gritty but will make your heart melt from all the love too. It’s an equal amount of dark and light and they mix together perfectly to form the perfect book. TM Frazier saved the best book until last.

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again...TM Frazier is the fucking queen of plot twists, this book took some unexpected turns, ones you won’t see coming, ones that’ll hit you so hard you’ll end up giving yourself whiplash. Prepare yourself for one heck of a rollercoaster ride.

When Tracey announced she was writing these books I was excited, I couldn’t wait to read them and now that they’re all finally here I’m so happy to say I loved every single second of them. The plot twists, the cliffhangers the dark and gritty, the happiness and everything else that accompanies the books. They quickly became my favourite series of 2018 hands down and I just hope we’ll see more from these amazing characters in future books.

TM Frazier is one of those authors who you’ll find yourself coming back to over and over again. Her books connect to you and grip you forever. The time and love she has for these books shows within her characters and their stories. It’s dark and absolutely beautiful to witness. She’s the queen of plot twists, the evil ginger and an outstanding author. I can’t wait to see what the future brings from her.

REVIEW: Eventual DNF....with full on skimming

Well, darnit. There is nothing more sad than a final book in a trilogy you were enjoying going rogue and ruining the ending of a series for you. I guess I feel like this one kinda let me down. I went from two action packed books that had me hooked and kept the story moving in a forward progression, to a book that started out with a lot of daydreaming and unrealistic fluff - setting the pace for this book as none too pleasing. I'm sure it was probably a me thing seeing how I built this all up in my head based on the first two books, but I was hoping for an epic finish. Apparently there was an epic finish (I cheated and looked after I DNFd it), but I read it a little (a lot) differently than I thought I would. This one just lacked the luster I got from the first two. I know this is a me thing. I know it, sadly....

I think I was a tad more nit-picky with this one. For instance, in the very beginning of the book, Grim was carrying Gabby with a visceral need to save her for EJ. He talks about the blood staining his white sneakers, but the rest of his internal monologue is him daydreaming of a baby bump on EJ and giving her a life outside of Bedlam. I would have thought the main focus was getting Gabby and yourself to a safe place and not dreaming of white picket fences - but this went on for a few pages. I already wanted to start skimming, and that is not a good sign. This was the very beginning pages of the book, so the fear was this book was going to be full of fluff. While we did get the just finale on this, I wasn't as impressed with this final installment as I was with the first two. This also didn't feel like a 'dark romance' to me, after it was all said and done, so I feel it may have been misclassified with that description as well. This one started at a 3 star and declined rapidly for me as the book and theatrics went on.

I also felt like this was a very rushed book with some very unexplained variables that I literally shook my head at. I don't like holding BIG secrets from the other half of the equation....and that part bugged me to no end. I don't understand how some things were played out as they were, because again....why rush it? If you are so stuck in your ways, and so strong only to bend over backwards for something makes me question that strength all along. But, then again....I can pretend to understand that need for normality and your biggest desire ever coming true, so yay for that as well.

BUT, this isn't to say that I hated this book - because I didn't. I just felt completely and overwhelmingly....underwhelmed by it. I didn't enjoy it. I feel I needed to preface this whole review because, while it isn't a glowing one, I honestly didn't hate it but it was a bit ridiculous in the whole scheme of things. I feel that TM Frazier set up a precedent with the first two books so I was hoping for that type of gripping read to keep me on the edge of my seat while finishing out their story. I've really enjoyed the first half of the series by her. Even though this one didn't capture me like the first two, getting Grim and Tricks' HEA was the best result I received after skimming the rest of this one. I have purchased all her books preceding this one so that I can read them, so I will eventually take some time to do that. Overall, this had a really good start to the series, but this final book kind of ruined what the series could have been for me.

One thing that really bothered me was this final book was almost the length of the first two combined, which is also a huge factor in my unhappiness with it. With the first book being 167 pages, the second being 206, and this one being 310 (per Amazon) - the price and page count didn't warrant a separation into three books, in my personal opinion. I am tired of the length being unnecessarily split into three books to drag out a series and I feel like this trend is probably starting to become more of the norm. This will make me rethink buying some trilogies for a little while since I am feeling ultimately burnt out on this idea. This is also the second trilogy in a row to start out with a great premise only to peter out and lose steam by the final book, making me feel like I didn't get the most bang for my buck.

I guess, the biggest let down was how easily things were fixed or washed away. I had a hard time with how Gabby was just forgiven, as well as Mona in a sense. Maybe I am confused, or I've forgotten something along the way (happens when you read so many books), but I was pretty sure they were working against EJ in the last book. This book had me confused quite a few times, and I hate when that happens. It was almost as if it was a word grab, talking me in circles. Some of it wasn't necessary, and the rest was fluff. I didn't think the story was lining up for me as well as I had hoped. Some actions felt overly flowery and the easy way out was taken on one too many conclusions. But mostly there was a lack of grit that one would expect for the type of story that was being told. Like, how was there was an abundance of money to buy up blocks of houses to clean up the area, but they couldn't do that before? Secrets were explained after the fact, but you couldn't have explained it better before all the shootings? You didn't mind people you love getting hurt just to benefit your agenda or get the answers you thought you needed? You have no problems killing people for a supposed wrong they did you, but confirmed wrongs were married and sent off away from family? Like.... really? I found myself scrunching my nose and squinting my eyes at quite a few parts in this one.

I'm so bummed this one took the turn it did. I guess I had more of a problem with this one than I thought I did. sigh

So now that I have finished this series, I can honestly tell you that I absolutely LOVED IT. The whole series of books were fantastic and I love how you watch our characters go from children to adults and the hell that they live through. All of the characters are strong in their own way. Some so evil that you can't wait till 'they get what's coming to them' to the good you ones that get their gratification.
The plot looks at the life of gang members. It also tells the tale of people that are caught up in this life and how they steer through it.
Again Mrs. Frazier another great one!

P.S. Some of our favorite characters make a cameo in these books!

I was prepared for violence and war, death and destruction, and TM Frazier delivered. I wasn’t prepared for the revelations for the tiny fissures that broke my heart. For the emotions and and the turmoil of the conclusion of Grim’s and Trick’s journey. I should have been, but I have found after reading all of her books, that I’m never prepared and that is why I love her stories.

Permission gives us more about the characters we love, but I was enraptured by the evolution of the two main characters. Seeing Grim truly come into his role as a leader of Bedlam, to see him sacrifice and fight for those he loves, to see him protect and defend. God, I didn’t think I could love him more, but somehow I did. He become not just a protector but a supporter of Tricks, recognizing her strength and being in awe of it.

Tricks from the becoming has had a protective nature, but in Permission there is a bit of Tricks protecting herself, emotionally. This is where she heals, where she grows and develops into the person she has always wanted to be and where we see her fight for the life she wants. She truly becomes her own person, an equal, a queen to match her king.

From the very beginning, plot revelations had me gasping, clutching my chest, thinking WHAT?!, and I love that. When an author can surprise, but I can also realize that it was set up from the beginning and I just didn’t see all the pieces falling into place. With the final installment, we also get more of the love and passion between Tricks and Grim, the loyalty of the brotherhood, and the value of family. More than anything Permission is about family and love and loyalty and building a home with those you love.

TM Frazier has created another series that consumed me. The characters are layered, never able to clearly be defined as good or bad. The journey is frought with violence but also love, forgiveness and family. Frazier exhibits the dichotomous nature of man, and shows us how a home is created, nurtured, and maintained. It encompasses everything I love about a Frazier novel.

Genre: Dark Romance
Actual Rating: 3.5 stars

I wish I could say I loved this book because I have been a fan of the authors work since the beginning, but I felt myself needing to push myself through it. This could be because the books in the trilogy are short and have awful cliffhangers and having to wait for this one took too long. I'm not sure. I just wasn't as into it as I have been with her other novels. I will say that I am glad I was able to read and experience the conclusion because Grimm and Trick's story is epic, but I do wish that these books were either a duet or a single novel instead of three.

If you haven't read this trilogy yet make sure that you read these books in order. They follow the same couple as they navigate their dark and gritty love story through gangs, violence, and more.

I 've been dying for this book since the last book. This series has been so good I needed more of Grim and Tricks/EJ. There story has been crazy from the start. And this book was just as crazy. This book did carry on from where the last book ended thank god. There was again another crazy cliffy at the end of the second book so I needed to know what was goin to happen.

Tricks has been goin through hell since she went to Los Muertos. But there was alway hope when she thought of Grim he was her men and he was never far away. Marco and his men wouldn't stop Grim getting to his woman but she has gone through some really bad things but she is the strongest woman ever. In this book she still has to deal with a lot of twists and turn but this is Tricks she can deal with anything.

Grim really what can I say this guy is amazing. I luv him so much. He will do anything for his woman and family. They mean the world to him but Trick has alway been his woman since they first met she has been his. Everything get tested in this book they have to final get rid of the trash the war can't keep goin on and the only man for the job is Grim.

I enjoyed this book but I m not goin lie I wanted a bit more from it. The craziness that was in the first book was just missing in this. People needed to pay with what they had done I wanted all hell to go off. Maybe I m just a lil evil haha. I did enjoy they story and the ending was good. Grim and Tricks are perfect together in there mad world. There is some great twists in this book im actually hoping that there are a few spins off from this trilogy. I want to know more about Sandy Haze and Gabby. There all great characters so I would luv more from them. I would recommend this book I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole thing.

5 stars!

Yes! The finale to the Perversion trilogy is everything! Fast-paced, exciting, dramatic, emotional and badass, this is the finish that I wanted for Grim and Emma Jean, and I read this book in one sitting, unable to put it down!

This book picks up immediately where the cliffhanger of Possession left off, all hell has broken loose, and you’ll never guess what’s coming.

“Blood has been spilled all over Lacking in the past twenty-four hours … The war has begun, and you, my friend, are the center of it all.”

I don’t want to spoil anything so I won’t go into detail with this review, but I will say that Frazier throws out more than one twist as she brings the trilogy to a close. I was swearing out loud more than once as her surprises are revealed. And things I didn’t even know I wanted to see, we get in glorious, heartwrenching detail… I even shed a tear or two! I was glued to my kindle as it all unfolded, loving every freaking minute of it!

And in the middle of all of the darkness, the romance is just beautiful!

“I love you, Grim. All of you … Bloodied hands. Beating heart. All of it.”
“Fuck, Tricks,” he hisses and pulls me up by the arms. We’re so close we’re breathing each other’s air. “It beats for you.”

Grim’s badassery has been well proven throughout the series, and as a romantic hero he shines in this book. But all hail Emma Jean! She has been through so much, and has proven that she’s no pushover, but the strength that she shows in this book is just incredible! She’s a fantastic heroine, and I just love her!

“I’m bruised and broken. I’m battered and battle-worn. This is who I am. You won’t hurt me. I want you to take me. Just as I am.”

And together they are just sensational as they sacrifice and fight for the future they so desperately want.

“I love you … I’m your possession as much as you are mine. I belong to you. My love. My life. My honor. My loyalty. For always.”

I loved this book, and TM Frazier proves once again that she is a queen at dark, raw and gritty romance. I have loved this trilogy and will keep my fingers crossed as there is a spin-off just begging to be written for Sandy and I will be all over that!

A fantastic read. 5 stars!

"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.” - WINNIE THE POOH. **begin shedding tears here !!!**
Wowza!! I mean there are books and then there are RIDES!! And this trilogy is the Thunderbird of them all!
"Why does it feel like goodbye?"
"Because it is!"


The story is just too racy and thrilling to put down, you HAVE to read it in one sitting, cause you don't know what's gonna happen from one page to the next. The exciting adrenaline pumped story ties up so well in the finale book. Too many punches to my heart & far too many tears in my eyes later I'm smiling.....and smiling BIG.
“My life!”
“My death.
My honor.
My loyalty.
For Bedlam.
For Brotherhood.
For Always.”

Tracey is fabulous in creating fictional towns with adorable, larger than life characters and evokes some pretty powerful emotions when dealing with them. The town is Lacking, literally and figuratively, in peace and progress. An ALL OUT war has bloodied the streets and destroyed compounds and families.
"The war has begun, and you, my friend, are at the center of it all"
So the Reservation is the only refuge. Chief David is quite front and center in the story and their lives and Grim needs all the help to rid Lacking of all monsters. And he needs to rip open his own heart if need be!


A ghost from the past makes an appearance and almost demands for the ultimate sacrifice of Grim. And he doesn't play by any rules or deals. All bets are off!!
"Any fool can see it in her eyes, and I know you love her as well. You hide your true self, but you can’t hide that. It’s written in your very soul and seeps out your pores. I know too much of the soul-sucking feeling that comes with having to live without her.”
“The question is, do you love her enough to let her go?”


OH MY GAWWWWD this was a major cry pointing the story. That's the trouble with Tracey books, we become so invested in these characters as they jump out from pages and start living amongst us.
“Because I am the man in the leather hood with bloodied hands, but I’m also more. More than just the reaper of Bedlam. More than just their leader. I’m a man. Flesh and bone. Beating heart. Capable of both life and death. Hate and love. I take, but this… this is my way of...”
“Giving life,”
“Yeah, something like that. I just wanted you to see me. All of me.”

It literally is a Fight Unto Death and Grim has his hands full.


Grim Tristan Paine is as deadly as they come, with the biggest heart and an infinite capacity to love. His brotherhood, his family, his friendships and his love are all treated with utmost loyalty and dedication. His word is the law and unbreakable. His iron fist is merciless for enemies and protective of his loved ones. Tricks is a con artist to the end, up to her old Tricks, she's tragic at times and almost Joan of Arc at others. Fiercely protective, strong and level headed, I loved her courage and endurance.

Thoroughly entertaining and vividly detailed, I hated that the story came to an end. I'd have loved some Bow Tie though, but maybe next time!. Rollo steals the show in the end. #GoRollo -" I'll kill her myself if she betrays"!!! **love to see THAT happen!** I hope you're giving Sandy his own book. he has shades of Preppy and I'm loving it.
Thank you tracey for another wonderful story
5 stars for this book->“Nothing’s Fair in Love and Gang War.”

OMG! These was a very intense dark series and I loved every sleepless second of it 😍
I don't even know how many times I screamed at the author and characters in the last two days 🤭. You know like in the horror movie, when you scream NO! Don't do it! Are you insane? and the actress does it anyway 🤦🏻‍♀️ , yeah that's this series. NONSTOP! 😈
It was really mind-blowing gripping and horrifying to the point of emotional pain 🤯.
I had a love-hate relationship with this series 😂
The chaos that was Landing town and the constant shift in actions that took place in these books made me dizzy.
This series was packed with so much action, excitment, fear and surprising developments that you have no time to take a breath 😲 or go to sleep 🤭
This was like avalanche of many events all at the same time. Yeah, I really enjoyed this series 😂
And finally at the end, the epic HEA that I was so desperate for 😍❤

Permission is the riveting conclusion to the Perversion Trilogy, and it is amaaaazing!! The most perfect ending to what has been a totally epic trilogy. I laughed, I cried (a lot), I swooned... hard. Grim and Emma Jean are such lovable characters and their family is so incredible. I just want to join it myself! I never wanted this book to end. Highly, highly recommend this series. It’s been one of my faves of the year for sure!!

This time, Romeo and Juliet get their happily ever after, but they do it T.M. Frazier style--with bullets flying. Five stars and five dozen black roses for this expertly crafted tale of love, revenge, and redemption.
