We start off with our female main character, Locke Casey, living by herself as a sex line operator. I found myself as I sat in the bathtub reading this book considering a life of sex line operating, I mean just on the side of course. I read enough smutty books to have a good rapport, I feel. But this could also be like my thoughts after watching Orange is the New Black that it would be cool to live in prison or after watching McLeod’s Daughters and deciding I needed to be a farmer. My husband says I sometimes lack a good grasp on realty (he may be correct 😉). Anyway, Locke is having a typical night of answering sexy phone calls where she takes on different roles to the men’s kinks from doms to subs as well as some other more strange kinks. She then receives a sinister call. A call from a man that seems to know too much about our girl and has a deep super villain laugh. Obviously freaked she hangs up the phone and ends her night.
Locke is awoken by bright white lights and then everything goes black. She finds herself locked in her bathroom and can hear strange men in her apartment. Fight or flight kicks in and after questioning some fight scenarios she goes with flight deciding on an escape from her bathroom window. Strangely, as if this night could get strange enough, there is a very attractive man outside her window. He has a mischievous glint in his eye on and is able to do completely unreal things to save her from the men in her apartment. Can she trust this sexy man named Mads (pronounced Mass) that seems to live life on the edge? Or will hopping into his black BMW put her in far more trouble than she ever envisioned?
Locke life turns into turmoil as she is forced to run from these mysterious men that broke into her apartment. She finds herself thrown into a world of Gods, avatars, and discovers powers she possesses that she can’t seem to wrap her mind around. Mads isn’t the only man that has captured her attention. The dark and mysterious Rane also bring about a strong attraction that neither of them can ignore. Then there is Bryon, her friend from college that she is reunited with before her world is again flipped upside down. Steam ensues, betrayal, and crazy magic that would give any sensible person into whiplash.
I read the blurb for this book and I thought it would be good. I did not think that I would get as sucked in as I did. This book was perfect parts swoony and steamy that had me devouring the entire thing within a matter of hours. The whole time I couldn’t keep a smile off my face. I seriously loved all the characters so much that I couldn’t choose who I loved more. Luckily, I don’t have to. My favorite (and least favorite) part is that Locke isn’t some mind numbing woman that just gets swept up by these men and does whatever they tell her. She keeps her head on straight even if they are the sexiest things to grace the planet. She feels the sensible feelings of mistrust for these men that have just appeared in her life with stories of legends that she can’t wrap her mind around. In short, this book is fucking amazing. Truly. I can’t wait to get started on book two and book three. Like ASAP.
Never say never. That’s Skyler’s attitude, and she fills her heroines and heroes with that same philosophy. Skyler is an Aussie who loves traveling and her goal is to one day visit every country in the world. When she’s not writing, she’s snuggling with a good book and her furbabies. At heart she’s a gaming nerd, Pilates and martial arts enthusiast.
Bestselling Author, Mila Young tackles everything with the zeal and bravado of the fairytale heroes she grew up reading about. She slays monsters, real and imaginary, like there’s no tomorrow.
By day she rocks a keyboard as a marketing extraordinaire. At night she battles with her might pen-sword, creating fairytale retellings, and sexy ever after tales. In her spare time, she loves pretending she’s a mighty warrior, walks on the beach with her dogs, cuddling up with her cats, and devouring every fantasy tale she can get her pinkies on.
