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.

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 these other bad boys.
Up in Smoke is the 8th book in the King series. In all actuality, this book CAN stand alone just like Rage's book did BUT, I recommend reading this series in order as the characters from the previous books are prevalent throughout the series. Plus, they are all freakin FABULOUS anyway, so not reading them would really be an injustice to you. With that, Smoke set my heart on FIRE. I didn't think I would like his story as much as I did King's, Bear's, and Preppy's but I was so wrong. This man STOLE my heart with his dark ways and ignited something inside of me. He comes off as this monstrous creature without a conscience or soul but deep down, he is suffering from a past. That is, until Frankie becomes part of his dark world and takes all the suffering away.
Frankie is another AMAZING female character in the series and once again, I found myself crushing on her HARD (this is how I felt about all the other females in the series as well). She's smart, fairly innocent in the scheme of things, but has a bit of a darker side that made her PERFECT for a man like Smoke.
All in all, I don't know how T.M. does it but EACH AND EVERY one of her books are PERFECTION. And I am not just saying that either. She writes books with a dark edge that readers can't help being sucked into. She gives these monstrous men HEARTS and makes readers FEEL very deeply for them even though they live on the wrong side of the law. I simply cannot get enough, and I don't think I would every be able to stop reading her books (which I have DEVOURED- all of them).
If you are looking for a dark and gritty novel with a TON of angst, you simply NEED THIS BOOK. If you like your men dark, broody, and just plain AGGRESSIVE, then you should get your fix with Smoke. Or, if you want to try something new, something a bit darker and edgier, then I recommend THIS BOOK along with the rest of the series. Just be aware, once you start these books there is no way you will be able to stop. They are ADDICTING.
THE SERIES: IN RECOMMENDED READING ORDER
