Review: Tyrant by T. M. Frazier

Title: Tyrant
Author: T.M. Frazier
Genre: Dark Romance
Type: Book 2 of King series
POV: First Person – Dual


I. Remember. Everything.

Only now I wish I didn’t.

When the fog is sucked away from my mind like smoke through a vacuum, the truth that has been beyond my reach for months finally reveals itself.

But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I’m more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King’s bed.

Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know.

I will put the lives of those I love most at risk if I let on that my memory has returned, or if I seek help from the heavily tattooed felon who owns me body and soul.

I don’t know if I’m strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day.

He’s already saved me in more ways than one. Now it’s my turn to do whatever it takes to save him.

Even if that means marrying someone else…

Doe was back to where she supposedly belonged, but being “home” was harder than she could ever imagine when everything was unfamiliar and everyone was stranger.

Brantley King refused to go down without a fight. Out for revenge, he would do anything to protect the one he loved. But a new force had emerged and determined to shake up his world.

After finishing King, with emotion at peak, I was hoping Tyrant will blow it all away with the conclusion. I didn’t get everything I wanted, but I still love it nonetheless.

“In my world it’s kill or be killed, baby.” “So I killed.”

I’d say King showed a little more of his softer side in this book. Not necessarily in term of emotion, but in term of making decision. He learned to accept that certain things were better dealt differently.

I wanted Sammy. I wanted King.   And I wanted Tanner in my life, but wasn’t yet sure of how he would fit.

Doe had harder time with a second shift in her life. Being with her family didn’t actually helped much, but bits and pieces started to come out and fit the bigger puzzle.

You broke my heart when you left. You smashed it to pieces when you came back.

I love Tanner. Through his eyes we got to see how other people suffered through Doe’s condition because she wasn’t the only one who lost something. I felt so sorry for him.

When I first started Tyrant, I had doubts because it took me more than halfway to start getting the groove.  After then ending in King, I was expecting for the pace to continue and things to go in motion immediately but it didn’t.

 “You think you can scare me? Think again. Because I’ve seen what real fear looks like”

Thankfully, the pace picked up after things started to unravel. The appearance of a new enemy brought a whole new set of problem for both King and Doe. What I think a little lacking in this book are the emotions. Preppy provided a myriad of them in the first book and this one felt too mellow. I was hoping for more feelings and more actions.

Tyrant was a good conclusion to King and Doe’s story and a great beginning for Bear’s. I’m really looking forward to how the story will evolve.

Final Verdict:
