My throat tightened and a heaviness grew in my chest like my heart didn’t know whether to beat faster or stop beating altogether. “Did you leave me all this to show me the life you could’ve had, but didn’t? Why!?” I pounded the wheel again and then again, and again and again until my vision was blurry and all I could see was the redness of my own heated rage. “You’re a fucking coward! You fucking COWARD!” I screamed to no one, pounding on the wheel until the skin across my knuckles split and blood dripped between my fingers.

Strong hands bit into my biceps, yanking me from the cab. I was spun around by my shoulders and found myself face to face with Finn. “I like it when you swear,” he said, pressing close.

“Finn, get off me! Get off me! Let me go!” I wailed, struggling to free myself from his grip. Kicking out my legs only to connect with the air as he evaded my every move.

A growl tore from his throat. Finn picked me up and walked me to the back of the truck, setting me on the open tailgate. He pushed himself between my legs and hovered over me to keep me from leaping off.

“Let me go,” I demanded, pushing at his hard chest. “I don’t have time for your broodiness right now.”

Finn held my wrists together with one hand. “No, of course you don’t. You’re too busy tearing up pictures and screaming at no one.”

“Let me go,” I repeated.

“No,” he said between clenched teeth.

“Just go! Leave me alone. Leave meeeeeee!” I wailed as I pounded against his stone chest.

“You don’t want to hit me,” he warned, his eyes hardened.

“Then let me go.”

“Why?” He stepped in closer, unaffected by my attempt to fight against him. My inner thighs were touching his outer thighs.

“Because she did!” I screamed, my eyes sprang open to find his cold blue gaze. “She could have run anywhere and taken me with her. Instead she left him but she left me too. She was a coward who couldn’t make the right decision and I love her. I love her…but I hate her. I hate her so much…so…” I was interrupted when Finn’s lips pressed against mine, momentarily rendering me stupid. I pointed my toes toward the sky to avoid my initial instinct which was to wrap my legs around him. It was so consuming that I momentarily forgot to fight him off, but I didn’t need to, he pulled his lips from mine.

“Stop doing that,” I said. I pushed him off but he stayed between my legs, his hands on my bare back just under the hem of his big t-shirt I was wearing. His gaze hardened. I could see the conflict written in his lined forehead and the deep V between his eyes. I had no doubt the conflict had everything to do with me.

And kissing me.

“It’s your fault that I do it,” Finn said, his voice deep and smooth against my chin and then my neck.

“So that’s your plan? Kiss me every time you want to shut me up?” I asked, still feeling every bit of my anger but also feeling something else. Something that sent tingles between my legs and an ache in my core. “Thank you for saving me. Really. Thank you. I appreciate it,” my voice cracked. “But you can just leave me alone now. And please, STOP kissing me.” My words a whisper.

“I’m going to kiss you whenever I want to kiss you,” Finn stated as if I didn’t have a say in the matter.

The early morning sunlight highlighted the beads of sweat trickling from his shoulders down his broad chest and across the valleys of his defined abs. He was standing so close that we were breathing in each other’s air.

“Whenever you want to kiss me?” I laughed. “I don’t understand you. I don’t understand any of this. You’re always mad at me. Why did you save me? Why do you keep kissing me when you’re always mad at me?”

“It’s when I’m pissed off at you that I want to kiss you the most,” Finn said, his voice flowing over my skin like a silky blanket. He slid me closer so I could feel the outline of his rigid erection as if he were proving a point. He lowered his lips to mine and consumed my mouth in a greedy kiss that had me shaking with need and spinning with confusion.

“Do you always kiss everyone you hate?” I asked, yanking my lips from his.

“Does this feel like hate to you?” he growled pushing his hard length between my legs.

I never thought Ms. Frazier could hit me with another series like King, but she has outdone herself with The Outskirts. It was nothing like I was expected, which I loved. It was fresh and new. It wasn't the same old story.

Sawyer Dixon lived a very sheltered life. Her father was in total control of her and her mother. Everything they did or said had to be by the church’s rules. When Sawyer's mom died, everything Sawyer knew was about to change. Her mother had a past she was unaware of but it was everything for her. Sawyer clung to that. Good or bad, fail or succeed, she was changing her life.

Finn Hollis moved out to the swamp to be alone. It was better that way. He couldn't stand the way people looked at him, felt pity for him. He once had it all until it all disappeared. He spends most of his time drunk and feeling guilty until freckled face Sawyer shows up claiming the land fifty feet from his front door is hers.

Can two people with so much baggage heal or is it a recipe for disaster?

The Outskirts easily pulled me in until I was begging for more! I am dying for The Outliers!

T.M Frazier is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. This story is very different from what I've come to expect (The King Series, The Dark Light of Day) from her. This has darker elements, mostly from Sawyer and Finn's past, but isn't a dark story at all.

Sawyer has lived a sheltered life: she's an only child and has been raised as a second-class citizen due to her sex and religious beliefs. She's used to her father's controlling ways and has learned from her mother what her place in life is. When Sawyer uncovers a box of secrets, though, she finds that there is much more to life than what she knows.

Outskirts, Florida is a new chapter in the saga of Sawyer. New place, new people, and a NEW life all await her... with [almost] open arms.

Where Sawyer is ready to live her life, Finn is the exact opposite. He's not ready to face the real world. He's withdrawn into the swamp, become a hermit, and isn't happy to find he now has a neighbor. He isn't ready to face his past or the people who he shared it with.

These two damaged people are learning to trust, but the question is can they find the comfort they need in each other? Can they face the world together?

I absolutely LOVE Sawyer and Josh. I am in love with The Outskirts and all its swampy, muddy goodness. Every single character has worked their way into my heart.

I need to know what happens next as the ending left me hanging!

T.M. Frazier is a USA Today bestselling author. She resides in sunny Southwest Florida with her husband and her young daughter.

When she’s not writing she loves talking to her readers, country music, reading and traveling. Her debut novel, The Dark Light of Day was published in September of 2013 and when she started writing it she intended for it to be a light beachy romance.

Well… it has a beach in it!
