I read this a second time and loved it more.
After reading the first 4 books in this series about a year ago, I had always planned on reading the “Preppy” books, because I liked his character so much, but I never got around to it until now. I was going to start on them today when I noticed that I never reviewed any of the first 4 books. So I figured I would re-read these and I am so glad I did.
Preppy was not just a minor character in this book, he played a big part. He was completely hilarious and was the best friend of King since the age of 11. Doe shows up at a party given for King after he is released from prison and she has amnesia and has been starving and living on the streets. She is looking for someone to protect her, but after her friend steals from King, he says she owes him and he keeps her.
Of course things get messy when feelings start to get involved, because King knows who she really is and plans on using that for his own benefit. Doe becomes good friends with Preppy and also with Bear who has been a friend to King and Preppy since they were young. He has been in his Dad’s outlaw MC since high school, but often stays in Kings garage apartment. Everything comes to a very emotional climax in the last 10% or so of the book. It really makes me wonder about the Preppy books. Though I think I will re-read the other 3 first.
