Samuel Clearwater, A.K.A Preppy, likes bowties, pancakes, suspenders, good friends, good times, good drugs, and a good f*ck.
He’s worked his way out from beneath a hellish childhood and is living the life he’s always imagined for himself. When he meets a girl, a junkie on the verge of ending it all, he’s torn between his feelings for her and the crippling fear that she could be the one to end the life he loves.
Andrea ‘Dre’ Capulet is strung out and tired.
Tired of living for her next fix. Tired of doing things that make her stomach turn. Tired of looking in the mirror at the reflection of the person she’s become. Just when she decides to end it all, she meets a man who will change the course of both their lives forever.
And their deaths.
For most people, death is the end of their story.
For Preppy and Dre, death was only the beginning.
***This is the fifth book in the King Series and it's meant to be read after Soulless.***
4.5 Star Review by Ashley
What in the world did I just read? I fell in absolute LOVE with Preppy when I first met him back in King- because bow ties & pancakes! And yes, you should totally read the other books in this series before this one- since there are overlapping events. If I thought I loved Samuel Clearwater before reading this book then I'm not sure what word to use to describe my feelings now...
I found myself laughing and cringing at Preppy's harsh and sometimes crass honesty. But he was always, always truthful even when the people around him didn't want to hear it. He was wonderfully complex and beautifully flawed. But it was the way he handled Dre that truly endeared him to me. This girl was a hot bed of messed up. Her heart was in the right place and she was so smart.
Now I can't say much without giving all the goods away so just read it. Enjoy the ride. Laugh with Preppy. Ache with Dre. Get hot and bothered when those two get together. And then go and check T.M. Frazier's page relentlessly for updates on the release of the next installment. Because that ending was just whoa!
