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.

‘I wanted to see her sad. Taste her tears. I wanted to know what she sounded like when she cried. In pain, in pleasure, in both.’

I was super excited when I heard that Preppy was getting his own book. I just loved him in the previous books of the King series. He provided the much needed comic relief and was just an overall awesome guy. I will admit, though, that I was a bit afraid I wouldn’t like his book, but I shouldn’t have worried because the book was really good.

If you have read the King Series then you are very familiar with Samuel Clearwater, a.k.a. Preppy. Preppy had a really crappy childhood full of abuse. The only good thing that happened to him was finding his best friends, King and Bear. They all grew up together as each other’s only family and sort of saved each other. Now, Preppy has made a name for himself and is doing really good with his business, “Granny Growhouses.” So, he cannot believe that some people have broken into and robbed one of them. Preppy isn’t letting anyone get away without getting revenge, and that is exactly what he does.

“You want to be high? You can be high on me. You want to take the edge off? I’m gonna do just that, baby.”

This where Andrea, a.k.a. Dre comes into the picture. Dre is a heroine junkie living in a hellish situation she desperately wants to escape from but that her addiction keeps her prisoner of. She is the reason why her grandmother’s house was robbed, she just had no idea what was inside of one of her rooms or that all of it belonged to Preppy. When he finds out what is happening he goes after the people to get his revenge. Preppy finds Dre and ends up sort of saving her. Dre wants to turn her life around because she feels so much guilt, she just doesn’t know how. Preppy doesn’t let people get away with doing stuff to him, but there is something about Dre that interests him.

The more time these two spend together, the more intense their attraction became. I’m not gonna lie, I wasn’t sure if Dre would be a heroine that I would like for Preppy, but she actually was. Preppy was his usual bow-tie wearing, pancake loving self but Dre brought out other parts of him that I loved. Preppy showed her a whole new different high in their chemistry, something they both became addicted to.

‘He’d said he couldn’t keep me. That didn’t mean I wouldn’t always be his.’

I don’t want to give too much of the story away. I will say that I was hooked from the start. I loved that it flowed from the past to the present so well. I still very much loved Preppy. He was full of hilarious comments that had me laughing. In the end, I liked how Dre and Preppy complimented and saved each other. The ending of this book was crazy good that I could not put it down. I cannot wait for the second installment to know what happens next. I just know it’s going to be so freaking good.
