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 this man endured wasn't just within the first chapter but as we delve into the book more his whole story is revealed, and you fully understand why he is the way he is, but just know that all the heartache and pain that came his way slowly mends, chapter by chapter.

Smoke is a nomad, a hired hitman who lives in the shadows between life and death, he's ruthless and merciless the best at what he does without compassion. 

I’m heartless. soulless. lawless. Godless.
I’m hell on earth. Brimstone and fire. Embers and ashes. I am motherfucking Smoke


Smoke has some dark demons buried in deep, now he’s on a revenge mission to bring down the one man responsible for murder, Frank Helburn who has apparently dropped off the face of the earth, he’s been in hiding for a year and nothing has brought him out.

Until now..

Smoke has just found his daughter. A clever ruse that eluded others finding her, she’s been attending a catholic school as an eighteen year old student going by the name Sarah Jackson. 
It didn’t take much for Smoke to go in and grab her in broad daylight with witnesses all around.

Now she’s his..But for how long before her death by the man that hired Smoke? 

Dark eyes and rough hands
Tattoos and frown lines
Handcuffs and scars
Lips that were made for sin
A perfect body with a corrupt mind 


I don't think T.M. Frazier could've paired up Smoke with a more worthier character..I loved Frankie, the endless questions, her quick clever mind and her unstoppable strength ozed off the pages. There is nothing I would've changed about her. 

This man is a walking billboard for both terror and lust. A human thunderstorm 

Reading this and heading towards the end that's when all the feels came rushing in, characters we thought we'd seen the backs of made reappearances in 'Up in smoke', the nostalgia hit me hard, I fell in love all over again. 

No one compares to this author, no series compares to this series, unique on all fronts!! My expectations were extremely high going into this because T.M. Frazier has set the bar high with every book she releases you know she's put her heart and soul into it, and this book was no exception. 

Murder and mayhem, twists and turns all had for an unpredictable, riveting unputdownable high octane read

A King Series Novel.

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.
Simple. 
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.
