Review: Locke by Harper Sloan

Darkness is the only thing I see. Ever since the day my life changed. The day that everything and everyone I held close to me ceased to exist. The day I lost it all and the demons of my past consumed my every waking moment. I tried to keep others at arm’s length. Tried not to let my darkness taint them. Ruin them. Harm them. And whether I want to admit it or not, as much as I wish I could keep them locked out, they refuse to leave. Refuse to let me suffer alone. If I hadn’t been so focused on keeping those demons from flying free, I wouldn’t have missed how one perfect angel was able to sneak her way under my skin—refusing to let go. Making me want things I don’t deserve. She consumes me. Her beauty knows no end. The love she promises tempts me every time she’s near. But that pure heart that makes her MY Emmy is the one thing I’m convinced I’ll destroy if I ever let her close. I’m a broken man. A broken man with too much darkness in his soul to ever let her light shine upon me. But even that doesn’t stop me from craving her with every single breath in my body.

Locke by Harper Sloan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It went by too fast!!! No time is wasted in giving us the heartbreaking past of both Locke and Emmy. What was different is Locke let his past break him and Emmy refused to let it define her until she lost the man who brought her out of the hell she was living in 4 years ago. Losing her best friend Coop and the guilt she felt over him saving her life at the cost of his and added with Locke’s continued rejections she runs back to hell.

This was the first step in knocking some sense back in to Locke and he went and got his woman but unfortunately it took a few more knocks upside the head from Emmy before his long overdue healing process really started.

I liked that even though Locke is an Alpha man to his core Emmy was really the strong one in the relationship and it didn’t make Locke look any less of a man.

This is the last book in the Corps Security series so it was bittersweet to read. It’s been a great ride and I’ve loved getting to meet Axel, Cage, Beck, both Coopers and Locke and their women and hope we get the next generation of these men in future books.
