The Outskirts by T.M. Frazier Review


5 Smooches!

a5 a4 a3 a2 a1


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.


I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book, but I can certainly say that it didn’t disappoint.  The Outskirts had me at page one.  And I couldn’t stop.  I read this book in its entirety in one sitting.  I loved the whole play on Finn and Sawyer’s names.  It was super cute, but I really freaking loved Sawyer.  I love heroines who are super strong and who essentially ‘save their man’ even when they aren’t trying and that is exactly Sawyer.  Finn is hot as sin in a backwoods kind of way and the two of them together are smoking hot.

This whole story was really done well and is quite different from other books I have read from this author.  Which is cool!  I love being surprised and I was with this one for sure.  There was a lot of funny banter mixed in the with angst to break things up and I am finding lately that those are my favorite kind of reads.  You know?  The ones with a little of everything.

I can’t finish this review and not say something about the side characters in this book, because two in particular have me wanting their story like freaking crazy.  There is a cliffy at the end of this book and it was a doozy I didn’t see coming, but I am pretty sure the second book is just a continuation of this same couple, so I hope even after the second book in this duet, we get more from this town and the certain couple I am waiting on!
