“The Outliers” closes out The Outskirts duet in a TM Frazier signature style of Sweet, Sexy, and Sinister Satisfaction. TM Frazier’s Romances aren’t “Textbook Sweet and Romantic” they challenge and have their own version of romance and justice. Her King Series is a prime example. The Outskirts Duet is much lighter but still the bad guys are the ones disguised as the upstanding citizens. The good guys’ armor is a bit tarnished. “The Outliers” is not a stand alone novel and MUST be read after reading “The Outskirts”. You get a lot of stories of Finn as a child and it’s adorable! You see just how destined he and Sawyer are for one another. Sawyer’s mother’s story, and backstory, is riveting and worth the her blindsiding appearance at the cliffhanging ending in “The Outskirts”.
There are plenty of thrills and danger in addition to Sawyer and Finn’s romance. As comic relief and a clue dropper is a new friend Wilfredo. Finn’s parents are great, and of course Josh and Miller and their crazy courtship. Critter is the elder knight in tarnished armor and no qualms about denting it up a little more. As I said “The Outliers” isn’t as dark as TM Frazier’s King Series but it’s not glossy and clean cut. It is sweet, fun, passionate, romantic, thrilling, suspenseful, edgy, and simply divine.
I’m giving “The Outliers” 5 Lightning Bolts and a Storm Warning.
