    MY REVIEW can also be found on my blog: KITTY KATS CRAZY ABOUT BOOKS UP IN SMOKE: is the eighth book in T.M. Frazier’s ‘ The King Series’ but it can easily be read as a standalone. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ This is Smoke & Frankie's story. "Why do they call you Smoke? " The very first chapter made my heart literally miss a beat and I knew we were going to see a side of Smoke that would unbearably break our hearts. The pain th...

    ➦I can honestly say that T.M. Frazier has become my go-to author whenever I'm in the mood for a bit of dark and steamy. And, even though some of the scenes in her books make me cringe, her writing is so hypnotizing that I never want to stop reading. Up in Smoke was no exception and a worthy addition to already spectacular series.➦Smoke is a hero a lot of dark romance readers will enjoy - he is tortured, raw, sexy and has a good heart. This bo...

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKI honestly don't know what TM Frazier does to make me love these asshole characters so much but whatever powers from Satan she possesses I never want her to lose. Smoke was definitely one of her more rough-around-the-edges Heroes but it's what made me enjoy reading about him so much. I really liked that he never apologized for how he acted, yet in his own way he could actually be sweet sometimes. "I’m hell on ear...

    ★4.5★ "All the nothing I am is now hers." T.M. Frazier has done it again! Up in Smoke is an action-packed dark romance full of passion, intrigue, and my favorite cast of characters from the King Series. Although Up in Smoke can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend starting with book 1. Once you get a taste of this world, you will never get enough! "Smoke My hellion. My ballsy fucking hellion." Smoke is a man on a mission. He will st...

    T.M. Frazier creates characters that are unique and interesting all the while pushing boundaries and shattering perceptions. Smoke and Frankie are no exception. Smoke has been built out in other stories as a loner who is frequently at the right place, at the right time. This story gives us insight into what drives him. It also gives him some growth as an individual and within the King series arc. Frankie is introduced to us as Smoke’s captive a...

    I was already on the very edge of my seat when I started this book, with my cheeks hurting from smiling too much, and my voice already gone from all the screaming and squealing I was doing, because it's been ten months since I've read a book from T.M. Frazier's King Series, and I was so ready for the rollercoaster ride she was going to take me on with Up in Smoke, and what a ride this story was. I absolutely adored this book and it definitely liv...

    All I’m saying is that this better not be the last book of this series. It. Better. Not. Be. Because I personally cannot get enough of these characters. I got to see my boys in this one and even Rage had an ‘also-starring’ role, which really tickled my gonads. Nine/Kevin's story next please!! “Respect needs to be earned. Preppy’s got mine.” - SmokeYou had to know I was going to be in absolute heaven seeing my boo. Bowtie til I die...

    “You belong to me. Your fear, your anger, your fury, your fucking defiance. It all belongs to me. And nobody fucks with what’s mine but ME”. With that quote alone, can you feel the dangerous promise already? That claim that no one but a character as bad ass as these men can lay down on you, all the while sending shivers down your spine because you know, they do not mess around. “Up in Smoke” was no different. It was intense, sexy, a...

    The plot was thin but I loved the humorous tone and reunion of the lawless crew. The mystery surrounding Frank Hepburn’s whereabouts was ramped up but the big reveal seemed anticlimactic. Frankie’s thoughts on Dr. Ida Kurshner’s book on captivity kept me laughing and Rage’s one-liners reminded me why she had the best love-hate chemistry with Preppy. Rage’s thoughts?“Now, let’s kill something and string its intestines up like Christm...

    Another wonderful read from TM Frazier! This instalment is about Smoke and Frankie... they are both two lost souls who find love and acceptance through each other.. I loved this couple, even though it took themselves quite awhile to let their guards down! When they do though the passion is explosive! I also enjoyed getting cameos from my favourites like Preppy, Bear, Rage, and way more!If you have kept up with the King’s series than you definit...

    I’m a man among men, but I’m not really living. I answer to no one. I’m heartless. Soulless. Lawless. Godless. I’m what’s left of humanity after it’s burned. I’m what remains after the flames have been doused. I’m Hell on Earth. Brimstone and fire, Embers and ashes. I am motherfucking Smoke. And I. AM. IN. LOVE.When reading a T.M. Frazier book you just know that you will emerge yourself into an addicting and mind-blowing world. Wh...

    ★4 STARS★There’s no Smoke without fire and T.M. Frazier certainly brings the heat with the newest installment to her King series.Smoke is ruthless in his quest for revenge and Frankie Helburn is just the collateral he needs to exact it. To the unseeing eye she’s a high schooler caught up in the web of her father’s deceit, but we soon come to realise she’s more wily and courageous than we or Smoke give her credit for.Smoke wants answer...

    *4.5 stars*Another great book by T.M. Frazier! I really liked this book. Its gritty, violent, sexy, disturbing and intriguing like the rest of this series. These books are all so addictive! Smoke is one sexy beast. He’s done some awful things but seeing him fall in love was inspiring. He loves with all his heart and would literally die for Frankie. It wasn’t an easy road for them but that only makes their love stronger. Frankie was amazing. S...

    I don’t know if it’s because I am over this genre of book or because Frankie and Smoke just didn’t do it for me, but UP IN SMOKE didn’t knock my socks off like I was hoping it would. We read about Smoke during Rage’s book and I was looking forward to his story. I wanted to know why he was as messed up as he was, and now that I know, I feel like TM Frazier didn’t build him up like she has her previous male leads. Smoke was probably the...

    This is why I read T.M. Frazer...I’m not the kind of person who thinks to burn off anger with exercise. I’m not the kind of person who thinks meditation will help clear my angry thoughts. I’m not the kind of person who feels like screaming out my anger…well not often. I am the type of person who looks for a book that will more than likely make me feel angry. It’s kind of like that math thingamajiggy. You know, where two negatives make a...

    There will never EVER be a time when TM Frazier releases a new book and I’m not left speechless. The time and patience she puts into each book shows clearly in every book especially this one. When I hear about a new release from this author my first thought is, ”how can I possibly love her characters more than the ones I already do? That’s quickly followed by “I know this woman is gonna blow my damn mind again with another incredible piec...

    Release Date: February 16, 2018 Genre: Dark Romance. Romantic Suspense. I didn't think I could love such dark characters until I came in contact with T.M. Frazier's books. Damn! She makes these monsters the most delectable creatures in the world. And I honestly can't seem to get enough of them. I really REALLY hope we get Nine's book next. He is a strong secondary character in this one and I know he's going to make my heart race as fast as all ...

    T.M. Frazier is in my top 3 all time authors. I have read every word she's published and would follow her stories anywhere they wanted to go. I was excited to be getting a glimpse back in to the King series and to Yes learn it was going to be Smoke's book was even better. A new character to love, a new story line to follow, new chances to get to see some of my favorite TM characters coming back to the pages. Little did I know that Smoke and Frank...

    5 AMAZING STARS I am a little speechless writing this because TM Frazier has upped the bar again! I was a bit nervous going into this book because I was probably in the minority of feeling slightly disappointed by Preppy part 3, but I had no need to be because I was wrong to even think I could be disappointed again, this was just pure dead brilliant as we say in Scotland. When I saw that a book was being written for Smoke I may have punched the a...

    4.5 Stars!I was super excited to read Up In Smoke as I have been a fan of T.M. Frazier for YEARS since Dark Light of Day. She has the exceptional ability to combine dangerous, broody alphas, sassy and strong heroines, snappy banter and an intense and visceral connection between her main characters. That is exactly what we got in this book. Smoke and Frankie were insanely hot! Their connection was fiery and once they got together: FIREWORKS. This ...

    This is the fastest I've read a book in over a year. From the prologue to the epilogue, Up in Smoke has everything, old scores settled and new scores avenged.Smoke is as bad arse as we remember him in All the Rage, he's all muscle, mayhem and mystery. He doesn't give much away but when he does he gives his all. But he's met his match with Frankie, she's got balls, not in the style of Rage but in her own self confidence and motive, she owns it.Rea...
