My bitter past ruled my life. I was running on empty and didn’t give a damn.
I wasn't interested in redemption. Definitely not love.
"Cat Porter NAILED it. This was a great, great book. So well written" - Lorelei James, New York Times & USA Today best-selling author
"I love this series! Cat Porter is a massively gifted writer! I highly recommend.” - bestselling author Kennedy Ryan
Sixteen years ago I barely survived my husband’s murder, and I promised myself that never again would I surrender my heart. I ran away from our hometown in South Dakota and never looked back. I wasn’t interested in second chances. I didn’t deserve any.
But that all changed in one night.
Forced to return home, I crashed into Lock, a brooding, sexy stranger. I indulged. No risk. No harm.
Wrong. Wrong. Oh, so wrong.
He was no stranger. And the past and present blew up in both our faces.
Caught in the crossfire of two outlaw bike clubs’ rivalry, our one night of hot and delicious quickly turns cold and ugly. Forced to strike a bargain, I’m a pawn in a dangerous and deadly game. Secrets, lies…ah, but I’m good at those.
So why does it hurt so much?
Because now I feel things I'd forgotten about, want things I thought I'd cut out of my insides. I see it in Lock’s haunted eyes, feel it in his touch—that same hurt, that same want.
Love not only stings when you lose it, when it’s ripped away, but when it first sinks its teeth into you, it can cut just as raw and sting just as deep.
Now that sting won’t stop, and I don’t want it to.
But the game just got real dirty, and Lock and I are on opposite sides. Will we come out alive? And even if we do, what will be left of our mangled souls?
Once I had nothing.
Suddenly, I have so damn much to lose.

I couldn't put it down!
A friend recommended this book to me. I was a little apprehensive; she likes her MC romances a little darker and grittier than I do. But I decided to give it a try and I'm so glad I did! I really enjoyed this book and stayed up way too late reading it. The main characters, Grace and Lock , are well developed, multidimensional characters who have some tough choices to make. They're not perfect, but they do what they need to do to survive. I was pleasantly surprised by the emotional attachment I had to these characters. It's not often that I find myself crying over a book, but there were some very emotional moments in Lock & Key. I liked the style the author used--alternating between the past and present. It gave a more complete picture of how the characters arrived at this point in their lives.
Even though this is a first time writer, you would never guess that from the writing. It's a very well-written book, with interesting, well-developed characters and a suspenseful well thought out plot. My one quibble would be with the last couple of chapters--they felt a little clunky and rushed in parts, but not in others. It certainly wasn't enough to diminish my enjoyment of this book. I can't wait for more from this talented author!
Lock & Key
Three cheers for Cat Porter, and Lock & Key. I so fell in love with Grace & Miller’s story. Definitely give this one a five star rating. Can’t wait to read the next in the series.
