One chance to make her his.
Preppy’s brother is about to live up to the family legacy in more ways than one.
This is the story of Nine, The Tale of Kevin Clearwater.
Secrets and lies…..it is the reality of the world that Kevin lives within. With a foster family that has pulled every ounce of innocence out of Kevin, the rebel heads of to find out more about the brother that he never knew. Preppy isn’t in the picture, but Kevin’s future is about to change courtesy of an unexpected encounter with a ‘jumper’.
Lenny’s life is in despair, and the emptiness is overshadowing all else in her life. Kevin manages to find himself on the very same bridge that Lenny is contemplating jumping from. The two manage to share a connection from that very first moment. What should have been a new beginning turned into something tragic when Lenny fell from the bridge. Presumed dead, the police blame Kevin for Lenny’s demise until the facts of that fateful night come to light. That single moment would forever haunt the younger Clearwater brother.
With a little divine intervention, Kevin finds Preppy and the two embark upon making the most of the time they missed out on. The family business has been kind to the two Clearwater brothers, and Kevin finds himself making a bad decision. Little did the younger Clearwater brother realize, but his past would soon come crashing into the present. A reality that would have reaching consequences for Nine and the woman he was determined to protect.
Let me start by saying Nine was everything that I hoped and then some!! TM Frazier continues the King legacy by introducing fans to the life of Kevin Clearwater. All of your ‘old’ favorites from the entire series will make an appearance in Nine, while providing their famous fodder while you learn more about the brother that will add depth to the King dynasty. Kevin’s journey is not an easy one, but his path to fulfillment will definitely be one trip you don’t want to miss out on!! I loved everything about Nine….I simply cannot get enough of these characters!!
I look up into his dark eyes. “This is a dangerous game of cat and mouse we’re playing.”
“More like a game of cat and bird,” he corrects.
I straighten my posture, my nipples grazing his hard chest. “And we all know how that turns out in the end. The cat eats the bird.”
Nine lightly scrapes his nails over my bare arms before pressing them into my skin. I gasp at the slight bite of pain. “No, the pretty bird swoops down from nowhere and sinks her sharp talons into the cat, marking him for life.”
There’s no sarcasm in his voice. I don’t know how to begin to process what it is he’s saying. It takes all of my concentration to get out my next few words.
“And…and then what?”
Nine picks me up off the floor in one quick motion, flipping me back onto the bed. He crawls over my body, hovering above me, pinning my wrists to the mattress. He grazes his teeth over the sensitive spot behind my ear. He lowers his voice to a deliciously deep rumble that has me vibrating with his every word.
“And then he eats her.”
