The Outskirts by T.M. Frazier
Sawyer wants a life of her own.
Finn wants to forget he ever had one.
After a tragedy, Finn Hollis escapes
into the swamp to be alone.
That is until Sawyer Dixon shows up,
all SCORCHING HOT innocence,
claiming she owns the land less than
fifty feet from his front door.
Sawyer gets under his SKIN, but even worse?
She makes him CRAVE things.
Things Finn hasn’t thought about in a very long time.
Finn WANTS Sawyer gone.
Almost as much as he wants her in his BED.
The swamp is about to get a whole lot HOTTER.
The Outskirts was originally set to be a standalone.
It is now book one of a duet.
The Outliers is the title of book two..
Sawyer and Finn had too much to say to keep their story contained to one book... so we get the start of the duet. The two broken souls do have quite the stories to tell.
Everything about this book was a solid yes for me. It was all emotions. Depressing, distressing, dark, and swampy. A swampy, sexy, love? Yes.
While completely different than Frazier's previous series, this one is not a disappointment. It may actually be my favorite. The mystery. The darkness. The swamp. The brokenness. It's all still sexy and romantic to me.
And not to mention the writing. The writing is never a disappointment. Precise, non-fluff and enrapturing. I dig. I dig a LOT. I was lost in the swamp world for a day on this one and I feel like I left a piece of my heart and mind back there. Thank God for a sequel, maybe I can retrieve them from those muddy waters.
