It follows the story of Sawyer who has been brought up in what I would consider a Cult. Deeply religious with little exposure to the outside world. Along with an extemely controlling father.
After being offered a new path, she is thrown into the real world. And she thrives.
Despite the traumatic and depressing beginning, this book drew me in and I couldn't stop reading.
I love Finn and Sawyer. They are both such amazing characters. My heart broke for both of them and what they have been through, but loved watching them come together and heal.
And secondary characters Josh and Miller are hilarious!
Could not put this book down! Can not wait for the next book to see how it all unfolds!
I love Finn & Sawyer they are just so good together, and I love Josh & Miller. This story has than wonderful angst/humor mix that I love about Ms Frazier's books.
I cannot wait for the next book.
Anyway, I strongly believe you don't need to read the synopsis of this book so I won't write one. Just know the author is brilliant, if you like dark romances than this is the book for you!

However, I do have one major gripe.
THE GRAMMAR. Grrrrrr!
I found a couple of spelling mistakes and a sentence that didn't even make sense. I overlooked those parts but the grammar ruined the flow for me and I found myself scowling at the page because it's not like the author is short of a few bob after her success as an author.
Sort it out gal or find some other Beta readers.
Apart from the shocking grammar, it was a lovely story of two people helping each other after experiencing personal tragedies.
Sawyer has had a really tough unconventional upbringing. She wants to live her life to the full and to do that she runs from her father and moves to a town called Outskirts; with a little help from her deceased Mother whom she loved dearly. Here she meets Finn who has his own set of problems going on, but in each other they see and feel a pull, an attraction of sorts, but their demons are ever present lurking in the background just waiting to rear their ugly little heads. Both characters are wonderfully depicted, in my opinion this is just one of the many talents Tm Frazier possesses. She brings the characters personalities to life so easily that they slip right into your heart. You instantly feel you know them intimately, and secondary characters are just as well written.
There are lots of twist, turns, problems and excitement along the way to keep you turning the pages. This does end on a slight cliffhanger and I'm really looking forward to the next book in this series
Great stuff !!!
Sawyer barrels into Outskirts after circumstances find her owning a piece of land there. She's determined to make a new life for herself better than the one she left behind. The truck and trailer she has have seen better days and she breaks down before arriving at her land. Standing in the road waiting for someone to pass by there's nearly accident and the first person she meets and the cause of the near miss is Finn.
Finn has cut himself off from everyone and everything. After a tragedy he hides away in a cabin in the swamp. He doesn't want anyone around him and finds himself not actually dead but not actually living either. He's just existing. That is until he nearly runs into Sawyer. Annoyed at having her near he's determined to run her off the land... but something in her has him drawn to her. He fights it but it's undeniable.
Sawyer is determined to build herself a life and experience everything she has been sheltered from. No more will a man tell her what she can or can't do. She's not going to make it easy on Finn. She's staying.
Goodness! I'm gushing big time on this book!
I wasn't sure what to expect of this. I've read all of the King series and i absolutely love them! I'm talking top ten series of all time love. So before i read this i gotta admit i was a little scared in case i didn't like it. I was an idiot... I Floved it just as much! It is very different from King, softer i guess but no less intense. I was hooked from the get go! The story draws you in like the mud of the swamp. There's loads of mystery along the way that has my mind going ten to the dozen as to where it's going to go. There is a dreaded cliffy but i understand book 2 isn't far off so I'm OK with it... i guess... oh who am i kidding i am not!! I need to know!!! There is a huge what the hey at the end that left me speechless!
Running through the whole book is a pretty epic love story that has my heart filling up. Sawyer and Finn are perfect for each other. Both nursing very different wounds from the past they somehow feel like they fit. Like fate made them especially for each other and i absolutely loved it! Sawyer although very innocent is so brave. She faces anything that comes at her with her head held high. Whether it was a new challenge or an embarrassing situation she takes it all in her stride and with total honesty. The way she brings Finn out of himself had me awwwwwing out loud and brought a massive smile to my face. The journey Finn makes is equal to Sawyers and his fight and heart made me fall in love with him.
The side characters are an amazing addition to the story. Josh and Miller really should have their own duet! Then there's everyone in the bar, and in the town, it really did make me want to live there! A little cray cray and whole heap of small community absolutely sets the scene perfectly.
Amazingly written, fabulous plot, lovable characters, epic love story, what more could you want!
Brilliant! Sat here waiting for this release to blow over so i can get my grabby hands on part 2!! Hurry up October!
Sawyer has arrived at the town, Outskirts, to escape her abusive father after the recent death of her mother, and Finn lives deep in the swamp in the Outskirts and has been living there for the last two years to live a life of solitude when his seemingly perfect life took a turn that no one, especially not him, expected. The day they meet is the worst day of Finn's life, and therefor the worst day for Sawyer to have met Finn, and when they both discover that they're now neighbours? Finn makes his dislike for Sawyer known and doesn't bother to hide it or the fact that he wants her as far away from his land as possible. But when a storm hits and Sawyer gets hurt, Finn is the one to save her, and that's when things between them change.
Told in both their POV's, this was actually a little bit of a heartbreaking story. Both Sawyer and Finn are broken people from what it is they've gone through in the past, and even though at first they do dislike each other, it's as the story goes on and neither can ignore the attraction that's between them any longer that they get closer and manage to find the strength in each other to, for Sawyer, start living her life without rules on anything and everything, and for Finn, to stop hiding and stop living his life alone and to enter the real world once more.
As heartbreaking as this story could be at times, it was also a hilarious and fun book, and I LOVED all the main secondary characters that we were introduced to here, most especially Miller and Josh; those two are my favourite characters in this book, and it was those two who had me laughing the loudest every time they were in a scene. But The Outskirts, as heartbreaking yet hilarious as it was, was also a little bit of a mystery, but more so a mystery towards the end of this book. And boy, that ending... I did NOT see that coming. It's not the biggest and worst cliffhanger I've ever read, but it was such a twist, and that twist has now got me highly anticipating and wanting The Outliers, the second and final book to Sawyer and Finn's story, in my hands as soon as possible.
