The Outliers by T.M. Frazier

Release Date: November 9th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Sensual. Heartbreaking. Passionate. Overwhelming. Maddening.

That’s the love Finn and I share.

It’s the kind you can never recover from.

The kind you never WANT to recover from.

That’s why we’ll do everything and anything to protect it.

When my past chases me all the way to Outskirts, we have to make a choice.

Let the lies destroy our chance at future together or…bury them deep in the swamp where they belong.

Got a shovel?


TM Frazier could not have developed more symbolic names or more poetic ideas for the titles of the books in her newest duet: The Outskirts and The Outliers. Both terms imply that the setting as well as those who find themselves dwelling in its less than desirable location are hiding from the world and the shitstorm that has already rained down on them…but these ‘outsiders’ seem to find their place in this ‘little backward town in the middle of nowhere USA’ because there is always beauty to be found within the muck…there’s always light to be found in the darkness…there’s always love to be found in the least likely of places, especially when it seems hopeless due to the cruelty that has already been endured.

By the end of The Outliers, Sawyer’s education and initiation into the world outside her captivity at the hands of her father has allowed her to truly understand all that she was missing out on and all that she still has to learn. She is still fairly naïve, but it’s that innocence that allows Sawyer to work through all of the ugliness that she has faced and determine that it will no longer hold her down…that it will no longer hinder her from truly living. And with Finn by her side as well as a few other outliers who have become her family…her everything, she’s able to put the past behind her and look to a much fuller and happier future. That’s not to say that she doesn’t have setbacks and that her past doesn’t find a way to put her present in chaos, but her new outlook and life’s revelations have allowed her a way to see beyond her fear and fight against the demons that threaten to destroy what she has built in the Outskirts.

Finn, in a way, is reborn through his love and need to protect Sawyer. His past is just as heartbreaking, but he can see passed it because Sawyer offers him a way into the light, and because of that gift, Finn opens up and finds himself a little on the outside. In a way, though, I feel like Finn takes on more of a secondary role in book two because it’s Sawyer’s past that has to be dealt with and it seems kind of fitting that Sawyer is allowed to spread her wings a bit and find her way. I’m not saying that Finn is in any way less important in book two because he’s not, but Sawyer is at the forefront of The Outliers, which feels right given everything that had to be dealt with concerning the world she fled.

Love fiercely. Love possessively. Love crazily. Love always.

That’s the lesson that the characters of The Outskirts Duet and its readers learn through everything that is revealed and all that unfolds in book two. And, while the second part of Sawyer and Finn’s story is not as twisted or unhinged as what TM Frazier usually writes, the plot line as well as the way things are handled seem to fit the point in their lives these characters have reached and what’s truly important when it comes to moving forward and feeling more whole than they’ve ever felt before.

Sawyer and Finn both went from merely existing to truly living and fighting for a forever with each other, which proves that even those who live on the outer edges and feel detached and different from everyone else deserve a life filled with love and family and they’ll fight dirty if it means that their life gets a little lighter amidst the darkness and murkiness of their humble lifestyles.

My eyes went to her throat. I saw her pulse quicken beneath her smooth skin. She twisted her pouty pink lips. Her hesitation only lasted a second before she wrapped her arms around my neck and pulled me down closer so that the tips of our noses touched. Her lips feathered against mine. “Fuck me, Finn.”

“Yes,” I growled.

I may have been the one who told her to say those words but hearing them out of her mouth caused the raging inferno of lust within me to explode beyond control. I had a feeling I’d be hearing those words on repeat in my head for the rest of my life.

Fuck me, Finn.

I lifted her up onto the nearest table and pushed her onto her back. I tore her panties off in one tug and while I devoured her with my eyes, I somehow managed to concentrate enough to unbuckle my belt and push my jeans down over my ass, freeing my throbbing cock.

Sawyer moaned when I parted her legs, stepping between them. The sound was pure fucking heaven. Our tongues danced while we drank each other in. I savored the way her body felt against mine. Hard against soft. I dug my fingers into the flesh of her perfectly round ass before moving them to her pussy where I parted her warm wet folds and strummed her swollen clit because Sawyer was my instrument of choice and only I knew how to play her to perfection.

The look on Sawyer’s face when I inserted a finger inside of her was as if I’d just given her a drug. She was high on the pleasure. Her lids were heavy. Her pupils large and dark. I was dead set on making sure I wrung every bit of pleasure from her gorgeous body and I gave her exactly what she’d asked me for.
