The finale to Bear and Thia's epic love story... 

{ about t.m. frazier } .

T.M. (Tracey Marie) Frazier resides in sunny Southwest Florida with her husband and three feisty fur kids.

She attended Florida Gulf Coast University where she specialized in public speaking. After years working in real estate and new home construction, she decided it was finally time to stop pushing her dreams to the back burner and pursue writing seriously.

In the third grade she wrote her very first story about a lost hamster. It earned rave reviews from both her teacher and her parents.

It only took her twenty years to start the next one.

It will not be about hamsters.

{ excerpt } .


I was mad at the world, at the whiskey for not being strong enough, at the drugs for not lasting long enough, at the fucking whores I banged for not getting me off when it was my fault my dick was fucking useless after a bucket of fucking blow. I went so far as to be pissed at random people on the street for laughing or smiling when I felt like I’d never be able to smile or laugh again.

How dare they?

How fucking dare they be move on with their lives like my friend hadn’t just died.

I was on the verge of losing what little sanity I had left when I rode out of Logan's Beach and set off to find a place, or places, where I could numb myself against the feelings that followed me from town to town, cheap motel to cheap motel, girl to girl, high to fucking high.

Then, this pink haired girl from the past came barreling into my life and it was like for the first time, I’d found a purpose. A real genuine purpose and not just some shit Chop spewed out as orders that I and every other member of the Beach Bastards took as bible, but a true reason to live again.

To WANT to live again.

Someone to live for.

Ti was my chance at some sort of real happiness when Lord fucking knows I had no idea what that really was before her. The only glimpses of real genuine happiness I'd ever had came courtesy of Preppy, King, and of course Grace. Like when King tattooed us for the first time and we loved them, even though they were crooked and downright fucking awful. Like when Grace made me my very first birthday cake. Like the time King Prep and I sat at the top of the water tower and thought the world was ours to take.

Because at that time, it was.

Then there was Ti and my new happiness became the first time I saw her smile. The first time I kissed her. The first time I tasted her pussy by the fire. The first time she let me inside of her, shamelessly pushing through her virginity in a frantic need to make her mine.

Because that's what she was.

That's what she would always be.

And I will kill every motherfucker who dares to try and take her from me.


{ review } .

After a whirlwind romance, Thia's past finally came knocking on her door -- but, in true Bear fashion, it was Bear who took the blame for killing her parents and now Thia has found herself locked in not just any house, but her house, with a young girl named Rage with little to no contact with the outside world.

Behind bars, Bear knows without a doubt that Thia would never have survived jail time, the very reason why he fudged the truth. But he has a plan -- and watching as the plan was executed certainly brought some excitement into this story.

This part two of Bear and Thia's story had just the same amount of emotion and drama as the first part, but this time everything has come to a head and it's time to make people pay. Ms. Frazier's ability to write this MC and the ensuing war between Bear and Chop was intense and definitely worthy of the genre. I loved that while Thia was a bit of an innocent in everything, she has grown so much since the first time she met Bear as an adult. She fears she doesn't have what it takes to be an old lady, but Bear will show her, again and again, that she is very capable of being his other half and that he doesn't want anyone else to do the job. His protectiveness is shown in spades, and also shown is the fact that when he says he'll do something -- he most definitely is going to follow through.

In the midst of all the MC drama, there is a bit of family drama as well, and with it, we see the true bond King and Bear have together, as well as the bond that was shared with Preppy (let me tell you, Preppy is pretty protective from the 'other side'). Grace and her love for 'her boys' was lovely and there were definitely some tear-driven scenes.

Just when you thought an introduction to a new character was odd and out of place, everything will come full-circle. I have enjoyed every moment of Bear and Thia's journey  (including their future epilogue!) and am super excited to see who was recovered at the end... Nice cliff there at the end, just so everyone's aware. There are more stories to be told -- and I will definitely be watching for them.
