They call me Rage.
My real name is like a shadow, always close behind, but never quite able to catch up.
I fly under the radar because no one ever suspects I’m capable of the kind of brutal violence I commit each and every day.
You see, I’m a girl. I’m nineteen.
And I'm a killer.
This life is all I know. It’s all I want to know. It keeps the s**t buried that I need kept buried. It allows me to live without thinking too much.
Without dwelling on the past.
It all changes when an ordinary boy becomes my next target.
And my first love.
I have to choose.
The only life I’ve ever known has to die, or he does.
Either way, I’ll be the one pulling the trigger...
"All the Rage" was my first book by TM Frazier and wow, it was so freakin' good. I loved everything about it from the clever way the story played out, to the brilliant characters, and not forgetting the twists and turns and of course the one thing that really was the icing on the cake for me. I'm not sure whether it was intentional or it was just me not reading certain things properly and making assumptions (more than likely the latter.. lol) but expectation vs the reality couldn't have been more different when it came to parts of the plot. Boy did I get it so very wrong but it really enhance my enjoyment of Rage's story (one dunce hat for the girl in the corner coming right up!!!).
I wanted him. I didn't want to want him. I wanted to want to kill him
Right from the start, I fell in love with Rage's character. From the ten year old girl that no one understood to the teenager who tried (with the help of her best friend) to be normal and fit in. From the sixteen year old who decided enough was enough and finally, to the nineteen year old who was strong and fierce, feared by everyone who knew her or knew of her. They called her "The Angel of Death," the girl that was void of all emotion. They knew if they wanted a job done, done well and completed, Rage was the girl to do it. She was la femme Nikita personified and she was seriously kick ass. Her dry sense of humour and her inner thoughts had my sides hurting with all the laughter and the way she was just so matter of fact, so lacking in feeling in certain situations really did make for entertaining reading. But there was another side to Rage, a side that was so completely opposite to the side everyone saw. There was an innocence, a vulnerability, almost a naivety to her that tugged at the heart strings. Maybe this girl wasn't so void of feelings after all. Maybe it was just the fact that she hadn't met the right person who would allow her to spread her wings, to be who she was without judgement.
"This is the kind of shit that haunts grown men at night.
The kind of shit that has them begging Jesus for forgiveness."
"I don't need forgiveness."
"Everyone seeks forgiveness sooner or later, princess. Why not you?"
"Because I'm not sorry."
So Nolan Archer, well what can I say about this man other than he really did surprise me time and time again. There were hidden depths to his character that caught me off guard so many times. He couldn't have been more opposite to Rage if he had tried. From boy next door injured college athlete to one very hot, very protective alpha who was so swoon worthy it was untrue. But this guy had his own secrets. The question was of course what the hell was he hiding but more importantly, how would it affect this amazing connection he had with Rage.
I didn't know how deep her secrets ran, but I had a feeling that if they were as deep as my
own, there was a different kind of storm coming. One I hoped we could weather together.
How could I not love the bond that formed between Rage and Nolan? The chemistry between the pair was explosive but there was a job to do which meant whatever "this" was could never amount to anything... or could it? The slow building relationship between the pair had the butterflies in my stomach doing all sorts. "Touch already," I shouted. "Kiss her," I screamed at my kindle. Trust me, whatever happens between these two is soooo worth the wait. It was crazy and beautiful and romantic and touching and full of so much emotion!!!
"All the Rage" was such a brilliant introduction to this author's work. I loved the dual POV, I loved the writing. How could I not love the crazy plot filled with suspense, drama and a truck load of action? Oh and not forgetting the wonderful characters who completely stole my heart and had me rooting for them right from the get go.
Whatever was happening between us was more than bodies and orgasms- it was like
we were crashing into one another and holding on for our dear lives.
If you haven't read a book by this author, I would highly recommend this one. It is a complete standalone and although characters from the series do feature in it, I never once thought that I was missing bits of information about the cast or previous plots.
A job well done to this author. I rated "All the Rage" ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
It was once said that if you love someone enough you should let them go. If they come back to you, they were always meant to be yours.
It's kind of bullshit.
My story was a little different than most. I was a little different than most.
Because in my story, if you love someone enough, you should first drop the gun.
T.M. (Tracey Marie) Frazier resides in sunny Southwest Florida with her husband and three feisty fur kids.
She attended Florida Gulf Coast University where she specialized in public speaking. After years working in real estate and new home construction, she decided it was finally time to stop pushing her dreams to the back burner and pursue writing seriously.

It only took her twenty years to start the next one.
It will not be about hamsters.
