Review: Locked Up Love by Alexa Riley


Published: Feb. 2019

Blurb: When Lizzy Roberts agreed to go on a blind date she never imagined it would turn into such a nightmare. Thankfully she’s rescued by a dark knight named Rocco, but his heroic act is seen as a violent attack after the judge is bought off and Rocco is sent to jail.


Rocco Lang took one look at the blonde and knew he had to save her. But when his anger got the better of him he ended up behind bars. He doesn’t regret his actions, just that they took him away from her. Now all he’s got are her letters to keep him warm at night.


Can they fall in love with just a pen and paper and their hearts on the page? You’re damn right they can!


Warning: This alpha might be behind bars, but he’s still running the show. Grab your jumpsuits and cozy up because this prison romance is everything your Valentine’s Day needs!


May be spoilers
Locked Up Love has 16 chapters and 2 epilogues and is about Rocco and Lizzy.

Lizzy has just moved in with her roommate and she sets her up on a blind date with her brother. They meet and she’s really not feeling a connection, when he tries to force the issue. He does grab her breast and tries to get under her dress, but that’s as far as it goes before she’s rescued by Rocco.

It was insta-connection for the both of them, but Rocco thinks she’s scared of him, but that doesn’t stop him from taking care of her even though he’s in prison.

I love the letters. You could feel how much each felt about the other. There’s only slight drama while he’s in prison, but it’s just from the bad guys.

I loved this. She was a virgin, and we don’t hear anything about anyone that he’s been with. They were apart for most of the story, but it was a great read. A few steamy scenes. Little daddy talk. No separations once they are together. Loved it.

Epilogue is a year out and then 6 years later, they are happily married with 2 girls, 2 boys and pregnant with a girl.

I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.  Thanks for reading. Hope you check it out. You can get it on KU:
