Narrated by Lance Greenfield & Kirsten Leigh
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.
Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
We first meet Preppy, aka Samuel Clearwater, in the first book of the King Series and in that book he struck me as a sociopath, with only two people in the world that he cared about, King and Bear.
On a side note, if you haven’t read the first four books in the series, stop right here and go download, King, trust me when I say you’ll get more enjoyment out of this book if you know more about Preppy, because you’ve got to build up your tolerance for Mr. Clearwater.
As the series builds you come to think of Preppy as the lovable sociopath, but still a sociopath nonetheless. This the fifth book in the series puts all the puzzle pieces on the table and I can’t wait to see what the finished picture looks like!
Andrea “Dre” Capulet is a strung out junkie and when her “boyfriend” decides to uproot and abscond with Preppy’s marijuana growing operation things don’t go well for either one of them and when Dre is at the end of her rope and decides to end it all, Preppy surprises even himself by saving her. This story is about how two terribly broken people use each other to hold on to their humanity.
This seven plus hour audiobook ranks right up there with the first two books in the series, it’s a fantastic listen! The dual narration by Lance Greenfield and Kirsten Leigh is perfection, they both conveyed the right amount of emotion and that’s saying a lot because this book deals with some pretty weighty subject matter and is sexually explicit. The production quality is top notch.
It’s a cliffhanger, but it tied things up nicely and leaves us with just enough of a teaser. I’m looking forward to the final book in the Preppy story.
