Review: King by T.M Frazier

KING (bk 1) by T.M. Frazier
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Homeless. Hungry. Desperate. 
Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from. 

A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross unless you’re prepared to pay him back in blood, sweat, sex or a combination of all three. 

King’s future hangs in the balance. Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go. 

>> King is the first book in a two part series. Tyrant is the name of the second book due out August 2015. <<

Well before purchasing it I thought this book has it all: hot cover, intriguing blurb and teasers that made my 1-click finger itch anxiously to finally get this bad boy on my kindle. The first 60 something percent I was hooked and I enjoyed this book a lot and by then it was a clear 4.5 star read for me but then it went downhill for me. 

I don't shy away from violent books/plots/scenes or characters. I love me a badass alpha that knows what he wants - rough talking is a plus IF it flows with the rest of the book. And here's the thing, the book started strong with the prologue that hooked me right away. We get to meet young King and how he met his best friend, Preppy - it was disturbing yet touching under which circumstance their friendship was formed. Fast forward we meet a King who just got out of jail; he's 27, big, inked, a badass and his own boss - exactly how they planned it, minus the jail time. He's intimidating.... 

We meet Doe who has no clue who she is and who has a junkie as 'friend'. Trying to hook up with a biker in order to have a roof over her head and food in her stomach she meets King at his 'Welcome Home' party. Without putting any spoilers in it these two end up in a weird situation, she being King's possession. What rubbed me the wrong way wasn't his outbursts, his language, or his attitude..... it was the story's time-frame which threw me off and didn't make sense. It didn't line up with the characters emotional turmoil. If you're like me you'll pick this up.  

I couldn't relate to the characters sudden feelings; lust isn't love!! Sorry it's not and just because I've the hots for a very attractive dude doesn't mean I'm head over heels nor would I tell her all the shitty things I did and/or happened in my life just because I put my dick in her.  I'm an observant reader and the typos didn't bother me, it happens, but the non-existing time-frame threw me off big times. I felt as clueless as Doe when she woke up in the dark alley. There was no mentioning how long she's been with King or how they could have created a bond.

Then throw in some over the top things both on King and Doe's side and I threw the towel on my previous thought rating. Don't get me wrong, it had its steamy scenes lots of action but the flow was off for me including that I thought too many things were thrown into this book - I scratched my head several times just wondering:"Why?! How?!"

This book goes into my category: Alpha alone doesn't cut it it for me.
Maybe it is just me because her general writing is really good. 
If I'll read book two and the conclusion to King and Doe's story? Mmmh as of right now I'm not sure.
