Wow!! On the edge of my chair the entire book! That's a good thing LOL. I don't know how stories like this come out of Mrs. Frazier, but boy am I glad. I open her books, and get hooked from word one. Emma and Tristan meet when they are 12 and 16 and both are being moved around the foster care system. They get separated, stay in touch for a while, and wind up on different sides of turf. That's all you should know going in to this book, but it will grab you by the throat and not let go until the very last word, when you will beg for more!! Love this story!

The first book in T.M. Frazier’s Perversion Trilogy is an intensely dark and jacked up journey about two people, Tristan (Grim) and Emma Jean (Tricks), who seemed destined to be in each other’s life, in some capacity, based on the electric connection that fuses them together, and even if their first interaction occurred when he was 16 and she was 12, there’s no telling what fate has in store for them or how Frazier plans to turn these two characters inside out, yearning for a chance to be together but ultimately not knowing if that’s a possibility given their present circumstances. As soon as I heard the title for Frazier’s newest trilogy, ‘Perversion,’ I knew that Grim and Tricks’ story was going to take these two characters and its readers to the edge in the most demented, corrupted, and devastated ways, altering both of their lives as well as detouring their objectives and their plans to the point where they might just have to risk everything in order to have a chance to finish what fate started between them. I have to admit…anything of substance developing between these two ‘should be’ enemies seems impossible…not just because of their ‘chosen’ paths or their ‘lot’ in life, but due to a shitload of circumstances out of their control, because regardless of how in control Grim and Tricks believe they may be, they don’t hold that kind of power, especially in the lifestyles they’re living, and with what they’re up against as well as their dangerous and deadly environments, any step towards each other could send them spiraling downward, essentially into the depths of hell. I’d love to take a glimpse insideT.M. Frazier’s mind or even in some small way understand how these wickedly dark and deviant plot lines and more than a little messed up main characters enter her head, whispering their disturbing murmurings and forcing her to tell their story in all their f-ed up glory. It’s probably a minefield all of things perverse, but that’s why her writing appeals to so many romance readers because she has the ability to bring to life, in such vivid and creative ways, the monsters inside her head - the same characters we can’t get enough of, even if it makes us a bit messed up as well;) Book 2, Possession, can’t come soon enough; I have so many questions and hypotheses for where Frazier plans to take Grim and Tricks, and given where the first part of their story ends, I’m probably wrong on every account, but I know I’ll love proving myself incorrect because it means I’ll be back in this fabulous messed up world! 4.5 Poison Apples

Perversion by T.M. Frazier is book one in her brandnew Perversion Trilogy. Meet Emma Jean, she´s a con artist and is working for the enemy. But she stole his heart at the age of twelve and he never forgot about her. He that´s Tristan - Grim. He´s the executioner for the Bedlam Brotherhood, found his family with them. He uses her, she manipulates him. Both their lifes are a cluster fudge. They make ends meet somehow and try to life another day. T.M. Frazier writes raw and gritty, heartwrenching stories like no other author. The first book I read from her was The Dark Light of Day and I was hooked. Then King, Bear and Preppy stole my heart, oh Preppy I´m calling dibs on you. Before I started reading I had high expectations, and What can I say, I was so not disappointed. I was hooked from the start and read the book in one sitting. My heart was bleeding for Grim and Emma Jean. I will not spoiler here, only so much , the book ends with a major twist and very unexpected turn and I can´t wait to get mny hands on the next installment. The story continues in Possession and concludes in Permission. I highly recommend the book and the series and give 6 stars.

Perversion by T.M. Frazier is the first book in her brand new Perversion Trilogy . In true Frazier fashion, this book has ALL the dark and twisty you could ever hope for. Gangs, tragic childhood, violence, scars, lies, deceit, betrayal. The connection between the characters is bittersweet. Tristan is a troubled teen that is shipped from foster family to foster family. He doesn't speak because he sees no purpose in it so the "adults" around him think that he isn't just dumb, he's also dim-witted and nothing could be further from the truth. A chance encounter with Emma Jean one day leaves him plus a kitten and minus a wallet. The precocious girl from across the street set something free in him that day. Add that to the new family he went with and their unique view on how a family should be and things just kept looking up. Emma Jean loved magic. When she met Tristan she didn't realize that she not only stole his wallet but a small piece of his heart. To her he was the boy she wished she knew better. The one ray of light in what rapidly became a dark and dangerous life. Slave to a gang leader and determined to not use her body to earn like everyone else she was now on a mission to do everything she could to get free. A chance encounter, years later with the boy from her past sets both their lives into a tailspin that, naturally ends on a cliffhanger with this book and I cannot wait to see what happens between them. Well-written and well-paced, this book is dark and twisty in all the right ways. Enjoy!

From the very beginning I was captivated by this world and these characters. I wasn't sure what to expect, but as I was drawn into it, I found myself quickly attaching to the story. Set in a small town, this book brings a whole lot of twists and turns. It seems like at every chapter I couldn't keep myself from reading just one more. Three rival gangs in the town, we are given a more modern-day take on the Romeo and Juliet story -- atrocities, opposite sides of a war (albeit a gang war in this case), star-crossed lovers, and pushing loyalty to the boundary. A little dark, but somehow the small town balances it out. Of course it's got all the sexiness that accompanies such a lifestyle ;) There is a lot packed into this book and it makes me excited for the rest of the trilogy. Sometimes, with a trilogy, I find myself a little unsettled with the cliffhangers and often have felt cheated on a story being spread out between books. With this story, I definitely didn't feel that way. There is so much that is discussed and introduced, that there's no way I'd feel resolved with one book. This is going to be a heck of a trilogy!

Emma Jean is not an ordinary girl. From a very young age, she knows that her greatest asset is her power to manipulate, deceive and create situations that are not real. And in another one of her schemes, ends up knowing Tristan. From this encounter between these two problematic teenagers, who live in foster homes, Tristan will end up owning a cat he did not even want and Emma will leave with Tristan's wallet. Tristan, who thought himself so clever and mature, will be deceived by a little girl with crocodile tears. Incredulous to have been robbed and at the same time admired by Emma's daring, he will only resent the loss of his mother's picture, which was inside the wallet. But this casual encounter will mark the lives of these two irrevocably. Emma comes in contact with Tristan by letters, apologizing for the robbery and telling that she has the picture. And so, they begin to correspond, starting a friendship. Emma stole a lot more than Tristan's wallet that afternoon, and Tristan may have been Emma's target, but he also ended up getting something from her. The two develop a bond, a friendship, and fall in love. Until Emma's letters stop coming. Tristan will search for her for five years without any success. Until a turnaround that no one expected would put these two face to face. But after so many years, will it be possible to trust a person who apparently you used to know? Perversion was far beyond what I expected. Emma and Tristan met in a completely unusual situation, even separated they became friends, they find each other again and they find themselves in a tense and dangerous moment. Emma was not happy in the house where she lived, the only consolation was Gabby and Mona, two sisters who also lived in the same place. The chance to go live with Gabby, who was located by her brother, is her hope of normalcy, of finally having a family. Big mistake. The arrangement, which has already started strange, with Mona not being claimed by her brother, but Gabby and Emma (who has no bond) shows that something is clearly wrong and upon arriving at the destination, Emma and Gabby will discover that the nightmare only started. Tristan was adopted by a good couple, but a little different from usual. His new family treats him well, welcomes him promptly, and gradually he creates a bond with these people. Five years later, the reader discovers that the city where the two live is dominated by gangs, crime is high and government is about to intervene. The Bedlam, Immortals and Los Muertos control power. Tristan is now known as Grim, the executor of the Bedlam. Emma is a prisoner of Los Muertos. They live all this time in the same city. But they are from different gangs. And with this approach, the war is declared. Emma and Tristan are good characters, well written, well developed, dubious, but despite all the violence that surrounds them, the reader can identify with and cheer for both. Emma did not have an easy life, all this time that she is in the power of Los Muertos, she lives in fear and being constantly threatened. Tristan is the only good memory she has, and she knows, the moment she finds Tristan and finds out who he is, that they can never be together. Nothing prepared me for the end of the book. The book is heavy, contains plenty of graphic abuse scenes. The ending is shocking. I did not expect the revelation that was shown. It is a good book, well written, with strong themes but can generate empathy for the main couple.

The queen of trilogies that leave your jaw dropping throughout a book and eating up every word has struck again. I wasn't sure what to expect by T.M Frazier's newest trilogy after reading the blurb, I was intrigued but you still have no idea what she has in store for you. I love this fact. She leaves me surprised and shock with every book I read and I know there is no way I can forsee what is about to happen. You go in thinking one thing only to be constantly amazed with how it all plays out. If you haven't checked out a book by T.M. Frazier than do it!! If you are a fan like me you know that this isn't something you want to miss out on. I am constantly keeping my eyes out for more by this author and she keeps proving why she is one of my top favorite authors ever!

"Love is supposed to be a fairy tale. Ours is a death wish." Holy amaze balls people! T.M. Frazier has done it again and just reminded us that she is the queen of dark romantic suspense with her latest release, Perversion! Fans of King are going to lose their freakin' minds! Perversion has that INTOXICATING King vibe! I felt it immediately and was like... F&%K YEAH! *fist pump* I devoured this book! T.M. Frazier does an incredible job setting up this GRITTY storyline. We meet the hero and heroine when they are young and innocent, making it nearly impossible to not fall in love with them. Without a doubt, you will become emotionally invested in their story to the point where your very own heart will ache for them. Like the brilliant author she is, she creates this world, this place where gangs reign and only the strong survive, that grabs a hold of you and keeps you hostage. Grim and EJ... these characters are so much more than players in this story. They are real and raw and make you feel like you are right there with them. Feeling every INTENSE, gut wrenching moment. The hero is DARK, DELICIOUS and every bit as alluring as the model that graces the cover. The heroine is strong, sassy, and determined to live life by her own rules. Just the way we love our T.M. Frazier women! In true Frazier fashion, T.M. skates the line of an MC book, but instead, creates a genre so uniquely her own. Once you pick up this book, you will not want to put it down. It is all CONSUMING! If you've been missing that epic high you felt when you first read King, you know that sensation in the pit of your stomach that makes you feel excited, anxious, and on edge with anticipation, then #1-Click Perversion today! I promise... it's one hell of a read! ♥ Review by Lys

What an absolutely cracking start to this new trilogy. T.m Frazier never fails to fulfil my hopes and expectations. In true T.m style this ones Gritty and Raw, Passionate and Intense. It's uniquely her through and through. I can quite happily leave the real world behind when I start one of her stories. I become completely absorbed in the compelling world she's created and get swept along with the lives of her characters. Grim is the ultimate badboy from a young age he rejected authority and looked out for No1. Now, he's the executioner for the Bedlam Brotherhood his name alone installs fear on the streets. He's Dark and Deadly and you won't see him coming. Gah!!! I just love this ruthless criminal. Emma Jean had me under her spell from the beginning. What a little minx, her antics had me in stitches. I've no doubt she has a few more tricks up her sleeve and we've only seen a fraction of her capabilities. This girl has amazing survival skills and inner strength. She's courageous and extremely clever, I just adored her. I seriously can not wait to see what's next for Emma Jean and Grim. That ending was spectacular and left me with a massive WTF moment I wasn't prepared for. Things are about to get a lot more dangerous that's for sure...Bring it on!

The evil Ginger has done it again. Holy hell, this is a modern day Romeo and Juliet. I literally stayed up until 3 am reading one night because I couldn’t put it down. Every time I tried, something else happened. Not all love stories are wine, roses and butterflies. Some of them are angry, violent and can’t be resisted. “I am one of the reasons why people are so fearful to leave their own homes. Murder surges through my veins like a derailed train.” I can’t wait for the rest of this series to be released!

AAAAHHHHHH!!! This book! THIS. BOOK. TM Frazier has written us a whole new world where fairy tales do not exist but where evil reigns on every corner. Grim and Tricks are everything. From their first meeting, first con, first words, first touch, first kiss *squeals* And that's just in a five-minute span. The rest of the book is FULL of action, drama, angst, twists, and DUDE, sexual tension. IT IS OFF THE CHARTS. Can I talk about the ending? Because, CLIFFHANGER. This has to be one of Ms Frazier's WORST ones. I have highlighted ALL THE THINGS. I have experienced ALL THE FEELS. "You can lie with your words, but your body tells the truth." Perversion means the distortion or corruption of the original course, meaning, or state of something. This book did that and more. My life was put on hold. Reality distorted as I immersed myself into Lacking, its territories and the gangs that run it. “I can't live in Lacking because I can't die in Lacking.” Grim and Tricks' lives were on a course set for nowhere. Foster kids, lost in the system, merely existing. Both taking out of their mundane and thrust into the darkness that we experience throughout Perversion. And what a ride it was. This book played out in my head like a movie and I was on the edge of seat cursing myself because I could not read fast enough. From the first page, Perversion made a voyeur of me. I was gone, lost in the world that TM Frazier created for us. I need more like I need to eat, sleep and breath. I swear the endings to this author's books slay me more each time yet I just can't stop myself. There is no waiting when it comes to her words. Her worlds. Her characters. My Life. My Death. My Loyalty. My Honor. For You. For Us. For Always.

: 4.5 stars--PERVERSION is the first instalment in T. M. Frazier’s contemporary, adult PERVERSION dark romance series focusing on seventeen-year old Emma Jean ‘Tricks’ Parish, and twenty-one year old Tristan ‘Grim’ Paine. Although the lead characters are 17 and 21, Perversion should not be considered a YA or NA story line due to the extreme violence and sexual content. WARNING: PERVERSION is a dark romance with graphic scenes of rape and sexual assault, and other triggers that may not be suitable for all readers. Told from dual first person perspectives (Tricks and Grim) PERVERSION follows five years in the life of Emma Jean ‘Tricks’ Parish, and Tristan ‘Grim’ Paine, both products of a failed and compromised foster care system. Five years earlier, sixteen-year old Tristan Paine met his future in the guise of a young girl who conned our anti-hero out of his wallet and his heart. Pulled from his latest foster home Tristan would find himself a new family with the Bedlam Brotherhood, where for five years he played executioner and guardian but five years where he continued to search for the young girl he would affectionately come to call his own. At twelve years old, Emma Jean aka EJ was ‘sold’ along with Gabby Vega to the local Los Muertos gang run by Gabby’s brother Marco Vega. For five long years, EJ and Gabby had to earn a living conning the people of the town of Lacking, Florida, a con that prevented EJ and Gabby from working the streets. Fast forward to present day wherein EJ aka Tricks will come face to face with her future and her past with the reappearance of the man with whom she would fall in love. Hoping to escape the Los Muertos gang, EJ makes plans that involve running until she can run no more but all is for not when betrayal and vengeance rip EJ’s world apart, taking her innocence and freedom, leaving our heroine a prisoner, for perhaps the rest of her life. PERVERSION is a dark, raw, and gritty story line with graphic scenes of sexual assault, violence and rape. There is nothing pretty or flowery about the life of a gang member; few survive without permanent damage while others find refuge in heaven or hell. T.M. Frazier pulls the reader into the frightening and repulsive world of the street gangs of Lacking, Florida, a town controlled by the gangs themselves. Tricks and Grim did what they had to do to survive but surviving meant compromise and heart break, sorrow and pain as they watch the world around them crumble knowing they are part of the destruction and fall-out. The premise is dramatic, intense and creative following a Romeo and Juliet outline; the characters are flawed, broken and strong; the romance struggles in the face of time, distance and the knowledge that one or both may not survive.

Book One of the Perversion Trilogy.... I fell in love with Ms. Frazier when I read The Dark Light of Day.  I have followed her religiously since then. And let me tell you, just when I thought there is NO WAY she can top her last story.  She blows up that thought! I am obsessed with this story! The world Ms. Frazier creates in the town of Lacking, Florida is so raw, so gritty, so dirty and if "feels" so real! This story of Tristan "Grim" Paine and Emma Jean "Tricks" Parish, it's the story of a crime ridden town of Lacking, it's the story of "All's fair in love and gang war". A chance meeting as children, both products of the foster system. They have something special but circumstances and life of a foster child has other plans for the both of them. Both Grim and Tricks are placed in other foster "homes".  But it is much more twisted than that. There is evil, there is mystery, there is the beginnings of love and there is a helluva twist at the end of book one! You won't see it coming and when it does, it's about as subtle as a two by four upside the head. The secondary characters are phenomenal and add such dimension to the story. I will be waiting, counting the days until the next book in this trilogy!!  This story is definitely in the running for my "Favorite Reads of 2018" Brava Ms. Frazier!! I bow down to your greatness as a storyteller! You have the rare talent of grabbing the reader and bringing them into the world you have created!

I've been a reader of romance for 35+ years and until T.M. Frazier blew my mind with the King Series (at the time only 4 books) I would have said I'm not a fan of anti-heros. I was wrong! Yet, even with my past love of her writing, I was still unsure if I'd like this series. But dang, girl. She has done it again. From somewhere in her mind, T.M. Frazier has derived yet another fantastic new series. I'm absolutely in love with everything about this story. The bad guys who at the core, are really good guys. Always putting loyalty and family before all else. These are the anti-heros I was mentioning. A strong heroine you can relate to. Ruthless bad guys that don't understand a thing about loyalty, only greed and power. Grim and EJ (Emma Jean) are entwined in two rival gangs but a brief meeting before either of them became a part of those gangs has set them up as star crossed lovers. I'm a passionate person and I absolutely can relate to the fierce heroine and the good bad boy T.M. brought to life in Perversion. I'm so excited for this series to continue with not one, but two more stories. I'm going to need a drink now, to try and overcome my book hangover. ;) Thank you T.M. for writing another amazing story. And, as good as this book is, wait until you read the acknowledgments in the back. You will see how humble and what a beautiful and gracious person Tracey Frazier is. ??
