Bear is leather and lawless. Thia is prim and proper. It will never work between them. It's a lie they almost believe.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This book follows on from King and Tyrant which is where I first met and fell for Bear who is a sexy badass Alpha Biker belonging to his Father's Beach Bastards MC but decisions were made and he chose to walk away from his Father, the Brotherhood and the Club. Bear was fully aware that he'd just become a dead man walking because that's the only way you left the BB MC. At the start of this book he was drowning himself in blow, booze and willing babes because he was a broken, tortured and violated man now just waiting for death to knock on the door but instead his phone rang.... and one phone call changed everything.
Sweet, innocent 17 year old Thia held a promise ring given to her by a handsome Biker when she was just 10 years old and the promise was that if ever she needed a favor in the future then she should come and find him. His name was Bear and for 7 years she kept that ring on a chain around her neck never believing she would ever use it. But, one sad, heartbreaking and bloody day Thia did just that.... she went to find Bear and cash in her favor but at the Beach Bastards MC Bear was gone and all she found was a terrifying nightmare dished out by the evil and sadistic hands of their Prez.... Bear's Father.
This started a chain of events that had Bear and Thia reluctantly thrown together, they initially verbally taunted and sparred with each other as the sexual sparks flew, they were hunted trapped and killed to save one another, they claimed each other in a possessive, sexual and all consuming way, they fell in love and then they were ruthlessly torn apart by one of T M Frazier's torturous twists. And, if that wasn't enough, there was an even bigger shock and twist as she so cruelly leaves the book with a humdinger of a cliffhanger.... and the promise that all Hell is about to break loose.
This isn't a romance, it's a claiming.... but even so it's still a poignant love story between two broken people who are desperately trying to save each other but are sadly failing. It's dark, gritty and raw and there's no flowery pretty words instead the words are tortured, possessive, lewd, crude and intense..... but nevertheless they still say "I love you". This listen is riddled with suspense, tension, danger, sex, passion and the absolute assurance that everything is gearing up to explode in the second part of their love story where Bear will have to fight.... fight to be free, fight his vengeful ruthless Father, fight the BB MC, fight to keep Thia safe and fight for a HEA for them both. Told from both POV's, includes well loved characters from books 1 and 2 and both narrators did a great job.
Worth a credit? T M Frazier certainly knows how to write a tense, addictive and gripping dark love story with twists... and I fear this is just the storm before the tsunami that is about to be unleashed when book 4 in this series is released - and I can't wait. YES it's absolutely creditworthy if you like your Heroes primal and your storyline shades darker than normal. But I only wish I knew beforehand that this was going to end with a cliffhanger because I dread and avoid them at all costs until the full story can be enjoyed all in one go - so now you've been warned.
This book was definitely different than the first 2 with Knight and Doe. This picks up where Bear leaving and trying to put his life back together from leaving the MC and the torture he went through. when he is called back to handle a situation from long ago.
I don't want to tell the whole story. Bear definitely doesn't beat around the bush with romantic words he speaks his mind on what he wants many times.
The narrators did a great job with this book with dual POVs.
The only thing I know is I can look forward to another T.M. Frazier book to explain what is going to happen with the rest of the story and I can't wait. hopefully that answers all questions.
I wasn't sure I could love another after King, and then here comes Bear trying to give sexy King a run for his money! Gritty, romantic, and raunchy are just a few of the words I'd use to describe this story, and definitely Bear's and Thea's characters. I enjoy the raw & unfiltered way that T.M. Frazier writes. Just like King, Lawless will gut-punch you, and you'll love every minute of it.
This is such an amazing series and this book is no exception. Book 3 is all about Bear and rounding out his character and all that goes along w.it. After reading all the reviews about it being a cliff-hanger I was leary of listening to this one before the audio copy of book 4 was released. I'm so glad I took the chance because although the story ended at a very pivotal moment I don't feel that it was all that "cliff-hanger-ish". No main characters' lives or relationships were in question, there was no kind of detrimental impact to the 2 main characters. It more or less just leaves you wondering as it would at the end of a chapter, but nothing all that life changing. Definitely worth the credit!
Ermagherd! the performers in this were amazeballs! I could listen to Rob Shapiro read the phone book. the story was intense and had me gripping my wheel while I was in the road. love it!
The narrators were amazing , the story started out keeping me enthralled, then all of a sudden, you're mine! No building up to it, you've always been mine, even when you were 11, and I was 21, you were mine! Seriously? and I'm all for dirty talk, but how many times can one use " your virgin pussy! and the f-bomb was way over used by Bear AND her ! I get it , bad biker. .but she just turned 18, and was just as hard as him! I liked the first 2 books about King and Doe a lot more... ~Kim~
Definitely one of the hottest male leads I've read/heard. He's as hard as they come to everyone else, but to his girl Thia - he is a big softie. And the fact that she never listens and does her own thing is amusing.
I don't think this is as strong as a story line as King/Tyrant, but I am loving the characters and their relationships, and I'm definitely anticipating the conclusion in Soulless. I can't say enough about TM's writing style. I love it and can't get enough of it!!
Molly Glenmore and Rob Shapiro are in my top 3 narrator duos and are again amazing in this book. This is so well done!
Absolutely worth the credit/purchase and I will definitely be recommending this one.
Great story! it leaves basically where Tyrant left off and love that king & Ray are still in these books
Lawless is part one of the Lawless/Soulless duet and book 3 and 4 of King. I highly recommend starting at King and working all the way through. These books aren't something I normally would listen to. They're very gritty and real in a way that sometimes is heartbreaking, but her writing is done in such a way that it pulls you in. When you think you are on the edge of a cliff and it's too much, she pulls you in and wraps you up with her heartbroken heroes/heroines that despite all their flaws, you absolutely LOVE.
Molly Glenmore and Rob Shapiro both have perfect performances in my opinion, and completely suit the gritty, raw events of these books. They are emotional, hot, primal, and their pacing and inflections are spot on. I can't imagine any other narrators being able to bring these books to life like they do. When a narrator can bring you in to the book and make you feel all the emotions, that's an audiobook you'll listen to over and over. Molly Glenmore and Rob Shapiro definitely do that!`
"What's with the 18 years old girls? "
King and Tryant where both really good. Both story, performance and style. Lawless was disappointing and starting to become predicable. Author clearly has a formula and uses the same structure over and over again. Bad guy who swears a lot seduces innocent little girl. Why do the girls have to be virginal and 18? With King and Rays story you could overlook the age thing but to make Thia 18 years old too is just starting to get creepy.
Loving this series, so well written great storylines and amazing characters. Looking forward to the next instalment. Would highly recommend
I have listened to
King and Tyrant and really enjoyed them but this not so much , I am not sure but there is something missing .....
