Whispers of the Locke brothers fill the town, facts and reality twisted to fit what these motherfuckers believe they know about us.
That we’re sadistic bastards, incapable of any real emotions or fear.
Maybe they’re not wrong about that.
That is, until I set my sights on Kadence King, getting just as drawn to her as I am the darkness. It’s the first time I’ve felt anything in a long time.
But would she really be scared knowing the depth, the lengths I go with my brothers to make any fucker who crosses us pay?
I need a woman who can accept me for who I am.
For what I am.
I’m hoping like hell it’s her, because I want nothing more than to claim her as mine…
I know Aston’s dangerous, know people fear him. But I want him. I’m drawn to him, just as he’s drawn to the darkness.
I should be afraid of him, should turn the other way, but I can’t. I’ve gone mad and let him in my room, in my life, allowing him to consume me.
He possesses me, dominates me. Aston Locke shows me what it means to want to be claimed by him and only him.
And when he tells me I’M HIS, I have no doubt that’s the truth.
Because in the end it’s what I want too.
No matter how dangerous he is…
May be spoilers:
Damaged Locke is the 1st in the Locke Brothers series. Has 24 chapters with an epilogue and is about Aston & Kadence.
I do want to warn that there is a lot of violence and it is descriptive. If you aren’t comfortable reading that, then you’ll want to skip this series.
Aston and his brothers have had a rough life. Their parents were terrible and then they were killed at the same time that Aston was hurt and left for dead. No they deal out their own brand of justice.
Kadence has just moved to town after losing her mother to suicide.
They see each other and feel a connection right off the bat. They both fall hard and quick. You can feel the sparks even before they speak.
Neither hesitate or push away. They are both all in from the beginning.
I love that they are both very honest with each other about everything.
Both of their pasts are heartbreaking, but I think it draws them closer together.
Lots of steaminess, which I loved. Rough sex with choking and spanking. I loved it.
The only drama is from outside sources- the guys that they beat the crap out of. No ow/om drama-we don’t have to read about their sexual pasts, no cheating, no separations.
Reads fast as it flows very well. I loved it.
Safety gang: Aston does save her from a guy who was trying to rape her.
Epilogue is 6 months out. They are happily together. The epilogue is just a set up for the next one. Still good, just wish for it to be further out, but I know we’ll see both in the next stories.
I gave it 🌟🌟🌟🌟. Thanks for reading.
