I’m a man without a conscience. 

I deal in murder and mayhem. 

I’m the best at what I do. 

Frankie Helburn is supposed to be an easy job. 

A means to flush her father out of hiding. 


Except there isn’t anything simple about Frankie or the secrets she’s keeping. 

She’s stubborn as hell and the sexiest god damn thing I have ever seen, sending dark, dirty animalistic desire coursing through my veins. 

She’s cocaine with legs. A f*cking addiction that makes me question things I’ve never questioned before. Want things I’ve never wanted before. 

I might have her, but she isn’t mine to keep. 

If her father doesn’t show his face, she will be mine. To KILL. 

** Other books in the King Series DO NOT have to be read to enjoy Smoke's book. Up in Smoke can be read as a standalone. **

“All these bruises,” Smoke muses. “And not one of them caused by me.” He trails a hand up my arms and down my flat stomach. “Pity, but I still have time to leave my mark on you yet.” 

My entire body stiffens. I’m as rigid as a corpse. 

Smoke chuckles and I’m glad I’m facing away because his laugh is pure torture, causing his erection to vibrate against my folds which are aching for more contact. 

“You will be punished, hellion. You can be sure of that.” 

I look over my shoulder and meet his dark eyes which darken even further as his pupils dilate. His lingering gaze rakes me over from my feet to my breasts and back down to the space between my thighs. He licks his full bottom lip. 

My stomach flips. My will to fight him off doesn’t waiver, but my body isn’t getting the message. My core clenches again. I turn back around to face the tile, digging my teeth into my lower lip until I taste my own blood.  

His chest presses against my back, and his hardness pulses between my legs, rubbing against my inner thighs. He squirts some shampoo in his hand, working it into my hair. He tilts my head back and rinses my hair then slides his slick and soapy hand down my body. 

I’m breathing rapidly now. Short quick breaths I can’t control. There’s a deep rumble in his throat. His hand travels lower and lower on my stomach until it’s between my legs. He’s working his thumb over my swollen nub, sending sparks of need, pangs of pleasure, and a wave of self-hatred, surging within my battered body and bruised soul. 

“What…what are you doing?” I ask, seeing flashes of white hot lust behind my closed eyes. 

“More questions…” his voice a hearty amused rasp. His fingers circle my clit while he continues to rock his hard cock between my legs. The pressure building is so strong it borders on painful. 

Tears leak from my eyes. I’m so fucking mad at myself for being turned on. For Smoke being right. I’m so wet. He feels it. There’s no way he can’t feel it. 

He leans in close. I’m stone still except for the tremors gripping my body. He licks the tear off my cheek and groans. He dips the tip of his finger inside of me and I tighten around the intrusion. It’s a foreign sensation. Strange. It feels both wrong and right. Pleasurable and painful. “Your tight little pussy is weeping too. I wonder if its tears taste the same.” 

I look over my shoulder as he withdraws his finger and sucks it into his mouth. He groans. “Fear or desire. They both taste real fuckin’ good to me.” 

He places his hand back between my legs. When I try to squeeze my thighs together to keep him out he parts them with his knee on a grunt and begins circling my clit again. This time harder. Faster. 

I’m staying as still as I can, but when I feel something begin to happen inside my body. The sparks he ignited within me are all crashing together. I can’t hold back. My face scrunches as I try to fight the orgasm fighting its way out, but it’s no use. I can’t fight it. It’s too fucking strong. I’m so fucking close. 

I arch my back without thinking, pressing my ass against him, begging for more. For what I need to push me over the edge. 

Smoke hisses. “Oh, what I could do to this beautiful little pussy.” 

The pleasure builds and builds as he strokes me harder. Faster. I’m about to come all over his fingers when the feeling is lost. 

I spin around. 

Smoke is gone. 

I can’t see through the steam so I shut off the spray and wipe the water from my eyes only to see Smoke toweling off in front of the sink on the other side of the bathroom. 

The only proof I have of what just happened between us was real is his cock. Erect. Thick. Huge. The purplish swollen head bobs against his abs, jutting out over the top of the towel he wraps around his waist. 

“What…what just happened?” I stammer, leaning back against the wall for support. 

Smoke steps forward, and when I go to jerk back, he reaches out and pinches my nipple painfully hard. I yelp and leap back, slipping on the tile, falling on my ass, taking the shower curtain down with me. 

Smoke rips the curtain off my head and glares down at me with a triumphant grin on his evil beautiful face. “What just happened was called punishment and you got off easy. Next time I’ll split that tight pussy in two with my fucking cock.” 

He goes to leave but stops. “You want pain?” he asks. “I’ll give it to you. You want pleasure? Now that’s something you’re gonna have to earn.” 

He leaves, slamming the door behind him. 

I release a shaky exhale. 

I’d hoped the rest of my time with Smoke would be tolerable, but there’s no fucking way that’s going to happen. Not now. Not with my skin crawling with need. I’m losing my mind. About where I am. About what this is all about. About this beautiful horrible evil man. 

I feel like I’ve already been split in two. 

What Smoke is doing to me is far more than punishment. 

It's pure fucking torture.


How do I even begin to describe what this book did to my heart? I can’t even put into words how Smoke and Frankie’s love story completely stole a piece of my heart. I’m a huge fan of T.M. Frazier and especially of her King Series. All the characters in that series own a piece of my heart. I revisit them when I’m feeling down and when I just feel the need to reconnect with a cast of character that is out of this world AMAZING!!! 

This book can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend all the books from this series. They will leave you at the edge of your seat and you will be left gasping for air in more than one occasion. Smoke is introduced in All the Rage and this is a book you do not want to miss! Rage is absolutely twisted and fascinating and her connection to Smoke will make you feel all kinds of emotions. Up In Smoke turns a page on something that happened in All the Rage and it will leave you with a happy heart. 

Frankie and Smoke’s chemistry was blazing hot! Every scene that they shared gave me chills and made me cheer for them until the very end. I never wanted their story to end!! It was fascinating to follow their journey and how their paths collided. Sometimes in the darkest of moments love blooms unexpectedly. 

Up In Smoke was one of my most anticipated reads of 2018. T.M. Frazier exceeded all of my expectations and gave her readers an unforgettable love story that will linger with us for a long time. The best feeling in the world for a reader is to reunite with characters that feel like family. The crew from the King Series is exactly that to me. I live many emotions when I’m transported into their world and every time I turn that last page, I can’t wait until I reunite with them again. If you have not read anything by T.M. Frazier, you are seriously missing out! She always delivers all the feels! 

I give, Up In Smoke, by T.M. Frazier, 5 passionate, intense, intoxicating, I choose you stars!

I knew something was wrong the second she walked in the door tonight; I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.   

Same hair color. 
Same legs. 
Same face.   

Except…I look harder. 
At the small dimple beneath her lip that wasn’t there the last time we went out. And her laugh—that laugh isn’t as loud.   

This isn’t the girl I’ve gone out with the past few weeks. 
It’s her twin sister, and they’ve switched places on me.   

Only I’m not quite ready to let them switch back.

Since the beginning of time, tales have been told about Eden. But all the stories are wrong. 

Running parallel alongside Earth, but never touching, there exists not just a garden, but an entire world of vivid colours and breathtaking beauty where the Seraph reside. 

Jazmine has lived in ten different foster homes, in ten different towns and all her life she has felt like she doesn’t belong – not in the trailer park which happens to be foster home number ten, not anywhere on Earth. 

After a universe shattering revelation, she discovers why. Far from being the nothing and no one, with no past and no future, that Jazmine had always believed herself to be, she discovers that she is in fact an heir to one of the seven remaining Seraph Dynasties. 

She is Jazmine Evenstar, the last heir to the sovereign Evenstar Dynasty. 

Thrust into the world of wealth and privilege in which the impossibly beautiful and equally cruel Dynasty heirs reside, Jazmine is forced to manoeuvre the tangled web that holds the Dynasties together. 

Against the backdrop of breathtaking star filled nights, sweeping coastlines, grand marble halls and decadent palaces, Jazmine tries to find her place in this beautiful new world whilst fighting not to lose herself in the process. 

But the fairy tale quickly unravels. 

Half human and the illegitimate daughter of the late suicide King of Eden, the other Dynasty heirs make it clear that Jazmine does not belong in their world. 

Raphael St. Tristan, heir to the rival sovereign St. Tristan Dynasty and next in line to the throne of Eden, the guy with the face of an angel but who is as wicked as the devil himself, promises to break her. 

Jazmine quickly learns that the beauty of Eden is nothing but a deception as she uncovers the secrets festering at the heart of it. But can she disentangle herself from the web of deception and intrigue that the Dynasty heirs have spun? Can she stop herself from falling into Raphael St. Tristan’s trap before he can fulfil his promise to shatter her completely? Or are those stories about Eden true after all and will she be foolish enough to taste the forbidden fruit that is Eden itself?

I'm always trying to find new authors that will deliver all the feels with their words. This is M.J. Prince's debut novel and OMG!!! Does it deliver!!!! This book landed on my TBR list after one of my lovely book sisters made the recommendation. She said that Secret Heir was an unputdownable read and since we have similar tastes in books, I wanted to read it as well.

I had no expectations going into this book other than wanting to escape in a page-turning reading journey. The author's writing style captivated me from the very beginning. I was transported to Eden and took this unforgettable journey along with Jazmine. I'm still looking for words after that ending. Holy mother of all cliffhangers!!! Where do I go from here?? I have so many questions and I'm craving for the answers. I have no clue when Shattered Heir will release, but I need it ASAP!!!

Secret Heir is the first installment of the Dynasty Series. This fantasy romance is set in high school and reads as a mature YA/NA novel. Jazmine's life is a mess. Since her mother's death, she's been living from one foster home to another. At seventeen, she's tired of this life. She craves that freedom that is just around the corner the moment she turns eighteen. The beginning of her senior year takes an unexpected turn when somebody she never expected to meet shows up in her life. Her grandfather reveals to her where she really belongs. 

Eden is a place full of mystery, secrets and enemies that want to see Jazmine gone. At the top of that list of enemies? Raphael St. Tristan, heir to the sovereign St. Tristan Dynasty. He's all trouble and a temptation that is driving Jazmine crazy. Eden is ready for her, but will Jazmine be ready to step up and embrace her role as the heir of the Evenstar Dynasty?  

Jazmine was a strong and confident heroine. I loved her from the very beginning. She goes after what she wants and nobody gets in her way. I was fascinated by her journey to Eden and I felt everything she did. I was more than just a reader during this reading journey. I felt like I was another character in the book. Don't even get me started on Raph! Sweet baby Jesus!! I was mesmerized by him just like Jazmine was. Their chemistry is so intense and chill inducing! *Fans face* This enemies-to-lovers story will leave you at the edge of your seat! The last few pages left me gasping for air and wanting more of all the characters in this story.

The author not only wrote two phenomenal lead characters, but she did a fantastic job with the supporting cast of characters as well. I want to know so much more about all of them. I hope that each of the heirs get their own book. I hope that we get to see more duels in the next book. The training duels in elements class were very interesting and I want to know more about what these heirs are able to do. This is a series that will keep me checking all the social media sites for updates. M.J. Prince did a fantastic job with Secret Heir and I highly recommend it if your looking for your next unputdownable read.


I give, Secret Heir, by M.J. Prince, 4.5 intense, captivating, passionate, fantasy-filled stars!

A broken woman. 
A damaged man. 
A free spirit intent on saving them both. 

Elysia ‘Sia’ Willis lives a solitary life. The only person in it is her big brother, Ky, vice-president of the infamous Hades Hangmen. She loves him, but she has absolutely no love for the outlaw MC he belongs to. Raised in secret by her mother, Sia grew up separated from her brother and distant father. No one knew she even existed. 

After the tragic murder of her mother, Sia spiraled into a rebellion against the rules of the Hangmen. A rebellion with dire consequences that now, years later, she still can’t escape. 

As she lives once again in secret, happy on her own at her secluded ranch, a devil from her past comes calling. A devil who wants to possess her once again and take her from the simple life she never wants to lose. And he will stop at nothing to collect what he believes is his: her.  

Valan ‘Hush’ Durand and Aubin ‘Cowboy’ Breaux have finally found a home in the mother chapter of the Hangmen. The notoriously private Cajun twosome have, for now, put aside what chased them from their beloved Louisiana. But as threats toward the club build, Hush and Cowboy are given a task—protect Elysia Willis at all costs. Cowboy welcomes the job of watching over the blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty. Hush fights against it. 

Scarred by events from his past and a secret that plagues his everyday life, Hush refuses to let anyone else get close. Only Cowboy knows the real him. Until a certain sister of the club’s VP begins to slowly knock down his defenses, shattering the heavily built walls that guard his damaged soul . . . with his best friend leading the charge.  

As lost and open hearts begin to meld, taking each other from indescribable pain to the never-before felt relief of peace, the newly-mended threesome must first endure one more rocky path. 
Only then will they finally shake free of the shackles of their pasts. 
Only then will they shed the bonds that have for too long held their happiness captive. 

And there is only one way to survive that path . . . together. 

Dark Contemporary MFM Romance. Contains scenes of violence and explicit sexual situations. Over 18’s only.

Hades Hangmen Series on Goodreads:


I have been craving Crux Untamed from the moment I read the last page of I Do, Babe. That was the last time I got lost in the Hades Hangmen world and I always look forward to reuniting with them. I knew without a doubt that Crux Untamed was going to break my heart into a million pieces. These characters are so unique, passionate, intense and fascinating that I never wanted to let them go! 

When I read that Crux Untamed was going to be a MFM romance, I was a little surprised. Even if I did not see this storyline coming, I put my complete trust in Tillie Cole’s hands. She always delivers when it comes to a passionate, emotional and unforgettable reading journey. If the characters whispered their storyline to her, it’s because it needed to be told that way. And after finishing Crux Untamed, I would not imagine a more perfect love story for these characters. 

I usually give a little recap of the story in my reviews, but this time I won’t. Every reader needs to read Crux Untamed and form their own opinion. Tillie Cole completely stole my heart with this story. Sia, Hush and Cowboy are without a doubt some of the most intriguing characters that I have ever met. They each have stolen a piece of my heart just like all of the other characters in this series did. You can feel how much Tillie Cole loves her characters. You could feel that love in each scene that she wrote for them. She gave her heart and soul for these characters and I feel blessed as a reader to be able to read her stories. They linger with me for a long time and whenever she releases a new book from this series, I feel like I’m going back home to family. 

I have never read a love story like the one I found in Crux Untamed. The connection between Sia, Hush and Cowboy was powerful, intense and unforgettable. Together they form a bond so strong that my heart bursts with happiness just thinking about it. They healed each and the dark moments are forgotten when they are together. They complete each other to perfection in so many ways. I will never forget them. 


I give, Crux Untamed, by Tillie Cole, 5 poignant, passionate, intense, unforgettable stars!
