RELEASE DATE: September 29th, 2014
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 just don’t even know how to write a review that can even begin to express my feelings for this book…..Excuse the rambles…
When I got the offer to read the ARC I was all…..
Then I started the book and my emotions were all over the place…I mean, I’ve been waiting for Maddox Locke since he took care of Izzy in book one, so of course I’m jumping on this book as soon as it hits my kindle,….
but at the same time it’s the last of the Corps guys sooooo…..
as much as I couldn’t put this book down,…it seemed with every page turned I was brought closer to the end, and that just made me sad…I guess it was more bittersweet.
I hated to see them go, but I loved how all of their stories turned out. Like,…ecstatic even.
I’m going to assume everyone has already read the rest of the series prior to reading Locke. Because if you haven’t, where have you been?? So when I say the story picks up right where you assume it will, that’s me assuming you know what I mean, lol, if not, then read the rest of the series in order to avoid spoilers and for everything to fit together perfectly. And if you are one of the small % of people who haven’t read the series 1) I’m sort of disappointed in you for not starting the series but 2) I’m sort of jealous because you get to enjoy them all for the first time.
Everything in this book was so perfect. Getting to finally be inside Locke’s head was everything I had hoped it to be. The struggle, and to know what his “darkness” had been the whole time…just epic. I loved him, and just wanted to absolutely hold him and squeeze until all of his broken parts were put back together. Of course, he could totally do some of those things to me he did with Emmy too, and there would be no complaints here whatsoever. *wink, wink*
Emersyn, oh I adored her. She was soo strong and brave. The things she overcame in her younger life, and then the fight she had to face to help Locke and how she never gave up. KICK ASS CHICK!!!! I love a strong heroine and she was every bit that.
So, Locke and Emersyn together…..OMG, wow!!! HAWTTTT, frustrating at times, because you just want them to be together, gooey, giggly, deep, honest, REAL,…..perfection…I just loved them.
The book had everything, absolutely everything that I loved!!! I know I haven’t given any details about the book and I did that on purpose. NO SPOILERS from me. All I can really say is this book was amazing. It was everything I had felt it would be and more. READ IT!!!

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed ‘Estrogen Ocean’, much to her husbands chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero–the super alpha kind!
Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn’t take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
