The bow tie is BACK! 

Dre was just a beautiful stranger when Preppy saved her the first time around. Now, he has to save her again, but she’s no longer some stranger, she’s family, and he has no idea who or what he’s up against.

What he does know is that putting his family back together is the only acceptable outcome.

Preppy’s to-do list?

He’s alive…and he’s out for BLOOD.

Preppy Part Three is the third book and conclusion of Preppy and Dre’s story. It’s also the 7th book in the King Series, which should be read in order starting with KING & TYRANT.




“It’s not always about who you’d die for. Sometimes it’s about who you’d kill for. Other times, it’s only about who you’d live for.”

Fantastic! 5 mother-effin’ stars!

I loved this book! It’s a celebration of all that is Samuel Clearwater, and this book is pure, 100% Preppy (which is why it has to be 5 stars). The good, the bad, the irreverently hilarious, the badass, the romantic, the hero, the villain and the friend. What a truly unforgettable character!

“You should know by now, Doc, that even death can’t keep a motherfucker down,” preppy said with a devilish smile.

This book picks up immediately from where Preppy: Part Two finishes off, with Preppy determined to protect his family from unexpected and unseen danger. He’s so close to getting his happy ending, he just needs to save his girl, figure out where the threat is coming from, eliminate it and protect his family once and for all. And I loved watching it all play out!

Preppy and Dre’s strength is proven over and over again, and together they are a powerhouse. Committed and completely functional (in their own way), I loved the no-nonsense way they dealt with everything that came their way. Their passion for each other is hotter than ever, and I felt every bit of the intensity between them.

“You’re never leaving me. Say it. You’re never fucking leaving me,” Preppy ground out.
I wanted to say the words back, but I was literally being fucked senseless. I began to see stars. Brief flashes of white light as he fucked the words into my heart…
Passionate. Relentless. Rough. Frenzied.
We were all of that and more.
So much more.

And I loved seeing how in love with each other they are and how unafraid they are to show it. The declarations are absolutely gorgeous and as raw and gritty as this book is, it still totally made me swoon.

“Samuel Clearwater, I promise I’ll never leave you,” I whispered, my voice as shaky as my limbs. “I love you.”
Preppy closed his eyes. A lazy, satisfied smile appeared on his face. He dropped his head back onto my chest. “Love doesn’t even begin to cover it, Doc.”

There’s not as much actual storyline as I was expecting, instead we get an in-depth look at the lives of Preppy and Dre as they find their happy ending. Don’t get me wrong, there are things going on, and the story threads from the previous books are continued, but it’s more of a ‘settled’ book. Preppy and Dre are together, happy and totally loved up, and it’s mostly tying up loose ends – with a bit of violence and suspense thrown in – rather than a complete new story. Personally, I really appreciated that. SO much has gone on in this series, particularly for these two characters, and though there is still some danger for them to deal with, I was really happy to see each and every moment of them finally getting their HEA.

It’s sweet, funny, romantic and sexy, and it’s also all kinds of dirty, violent and gritty, and the blend of all of that is just perfection! From the deep, meaningful and profound…

“I’m a man who knows it’s time to stop running away and start running toward and I’m choosing to run to you, Doc. Forever.”

To the everyday awesomeness of Preppy just being Preppy…

“Ummm…what the hell is that?” Kevin asked, looking at the table in the trailer.
“Manure,” I answered.
“No. Not really,” I sighed. “It’s a body-shaped plastic bag, Kevin. What the fuck do you think it is?”

And, of course, as much as this is a love story, it’s also a story of friendship and family. I loved seeing the newer additions to the series and how effortlessly they fit in, and there’s a really nice amount of time with King, Bear and Prep, and I just loved seeing the three boys together. As close family, there is nothing they wouldn’t do for each other, and together they are something truly special.

The saying that blood was thicker than water didn’t mean jack shit to me because I knew who my family was and blood was something we spilled for one another, not shared.

I loved this book, I loved Preppy’s story, and I loved this series. I’m not ready to say goodbye to these characters, but this was the perfect send off, and I know that these books are ones that I will reread over and over again.

5 stars!

Kevin had occasionally done something that reminded me of myself, but next to a DNA test, I still had no valid proof he was my brother. Nothing that connected us as family.

Until now.

“Dude, you’re creeping me out,” Kevin said, reaching for his shorts.

Before he could pull them back on I dropped the hose and bee-lined toward him, wrapping him in a bear hug. “You really are my brother.”

“Huh?” Kevin asked, standing as still as a statue.

“Shhhh…just let me love you.”

“What exactly is going on out here?” Dre asked from the porch, flipping on the light. I still didn’t let go.

“He’s my brother. I’m sure of it now,” I informed her.

“I have no idea what’s going on,” Kevin said, wiggling free from my grip.

“Oh yeah?” Dre asked, amusement in her sleepy tone. She yawned and cinched the sash of the sexy little robe she was wearing that showed off those amazing legs of hers. “How are you so sure?”

I stepped back and pointed down to Kevin’s massive cock. “Because of that!”

Dre’s sweet laughter filled the air. I picked up the hose again and started to spray Kevin down. “Shit man, that’s cold!” he shouted, dancing around in the grass. “And are you gonna fill me in on what exactly she’s laughing at?”

“That,” I informed him, spraying his crotch with water. “Because I just found more proof that we’re brothers than the fact that we think we both were shot out of the same cunt.” I grinned from ear to ear.

“Okay? And what’s that?” Kevin asked. I turned off the hose and Dre tossed him a towel.

I dropped my eyes to the huge slab of man meat between Kevin’s legs. “From the waist down we’re not just brothers, we’re fucking twinsies.”

“Uh, what the fuck, Preppy?” Kevin asked, putting his shorts back on.

“Quick,” I said. “Tell me something. How do you feel about pancakes?”

Kevin shivered. “Honestly, I’m more of a waffle kind of guy.”

Dre gasped.

I shut my eyes tightly, clenching my fists at my side. I cracked my neck and slowly turned to face him. I opened my eyes. “What the fuck did you just say to me, boy? You better start running.”

“Wait, what?” Kevin asked, taking a step back and tripping over the sprinkler. He stood up and bolted through the gate. I chased him through the field while Dre looked on and laughed.

“I take it all back! You’re not my brother!” I shouted, tackling him to the ground and sitting on his chest.

“What the fuck, Preppy?” Kevin asked, squirming under me.

“You and I need to have a serious fucking talk.” I leaned down until my nose was almost touching his. “About the abomination that is waffles.”
