Review: Locke by Harper Sloan
Publication Date: September 29, 2014
Series and Book Number: 5
Rating: 5 Stars
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.
**This is the final book in the Corps Security series. This book is not suitable for younger readers. There is strong language, adult situations, and some violence.*
I have been patiently waiting for Maddox Locke’s book and please believe Mad is my absolute favorite character by far!!!! Mad had me pulled in from the other books with his mysterious ways and how he would want everyone else happy but never himself. Until Emmy walks into his life. I adore Emmy!!!! She had a rough start to life and I hated the things this poor girl had to go through. I also hated to see the pain Maddox had to go through as well. Once you find out his whole entire story you completely understand why he is the way he is. It broke my heart to see his family treat him with such disrespect. But when he finally gave into Emmy it was absolutely beautiful. These two built each other back up from day one and Emmy helped Mad to understand the kind of man her really was. Fantastic job Harper on all the books. I enjoyed every single one but I officially claim Maddox!!
