All The Rage by T.M. Frazier
Standalone, related to the King Series, but stands alone well.
They call me Rage.
My real name is like a shadow, always close behind, but never quite able to catch up.
I fly under the radar because no one ever suspects I’m capable of the kind of brutal violence I commit each and every day.
You see, I’m a girl. I’m nineteen.
And I’m a killer.
This life is all I know. It’s all I want to know. It keeps the shit buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much.
Without dwelling on the past.
It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target.
And my first love.
I have to choose.
The only life I’ve ever known has to die, or he does.
Either way, I’ll be the one pulling the trigger…
All the Rage is a STANDALONE.
It was once said that if you love someone enough you should let them go. If they come back to you, they were always meant to be yours.
It’s kind of bullshit.
My story was a little different than most. I was a little different than most.
Because in my story, if you love someone enough, you should first drop the gun.
Rage. We met her in Lawless/Soulless, now she has her own standalone. You absolutely do not need to read those to enjoy All The Rage by T.M. Frazier, but there are many references that cross over, so fans of the King Series will love it even more.
19 year old Rage is FUCKED UP. I mean this chick should be locked away for life (as should all of TM’s heroes) but Rage is worse. She has had the need to kill since she was a child. She doesn’t sleep. Like, at all. She is as germaphobic as they come. And she has a love for destruction and death.
Yet I loved the “devil in pink”,”Rambo Barbie”.
Growing up, her best friend Cody helped her find ways to hide her rage so she wouldn’t be locked up for life. But when she meets Smoke, she found someone like herself. Finally, at 16, Rage was able to stop hiding and be herself, and by 19 she is well known as someone you don’t fuck around with. Smoke took her away and was a mentor to her current career as “The Angel of Death” and she is only loyal to him, though she works for many bad guys. So Smoke still gives her jobs.
This time the job is to get close to a young man and find out about his parents.
Nolan is a hockey player, went to college on a hockey scholarship, but was recently injured and told he’d never play again. The all American athlete boy seems the total opposite of Rage. But is he?
“Who the hell was she?
Where the hell did she come from?
Why the fuck was she so pissed off?
Why the fuck am I so goddamn hard?”
His house is filthy, so Rage’s germaphobia was funny. In fact, this entire book was funny! Yet it was dark and depraved and deadly and gritty at the same time.
Rage has never had feelings. She has never loved. Has never felt protective of anyone but Cody and her parents. She has never felt desire. Her only turn-on is death and destruction, and it still isn’t a sexual turn-on.
Can an injured hockey player change this?
“I’d never seen anything like the girl in my arms. Beautiful. Strong. Fierce and Fiery. A force greater than any storm and twice as destructive. In some ways, she was naïve. Innocent even. In other ways, she was the devil himself.
I’d never wanted anyone more.”
Rage is not quite as gritty as the King series to me. Well, kind of, but there was something sweet and light in the darkness. There were still the times where the author went to places most others wouldn’t, but there didn’t seem to be as much death and destruction. Or maybe I’ve just gotten used to it now!
- How T.M. can make you like, even love such a bad person.
- Several twists throughout the book that surprised me.
- Mention of characters and things from the King Series.
- Rage’s quirks were funny.
- The banter.
- I really liked Smoke and would love to get a story about him.
- The never sleeping and the way she can turn on her rage at will seemed a bit unrealistic, but hey, it’s a book, not real life.
The Down & Dirty:
All The Rage by T.M. Frazier was a fast- dare I say it – fun read! While it’s still gritty and dangerous and sexy, there was something fun about it. I loved that it was a complete standalone, made even better if you read Lawless and Soulless. All The Rage was filled with danger, destruction, sex, death, love, romance, friendship, and a whole lot of crazy. I loved every second of it.
Rating: 5 Stars, 4 Heat
