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…
This was shorter then I expect but then Snow is known for writing short books these days and they always well received as they are well written and jam packed. I have enjoyed a lot of her books over the year and she is one of my favourite authors
So I was curious to read her new book Damaged Locke with Ashley an author that I haven’t had a chance to read but knew of . This was darker then I expect given Snow’s recent books I have read of her’s but it wasn’t unwelcome.
I was hooked from the first page. For such a short book, the authors planned this book well. Thrown into the deep end and introduced to the Locke brothers. Everyone knows the rumours and don’t mess with them.
Until now, when Kadene sees them in the midst of teaching some guys a lesson they need in the hopes they will change their ways. Ashton spots her and she locks eyes with him and she lost to him from the day despite knowing better.
There something enchanting about Ashton and she wants know why this guy appeals to her . As it isn’t just one sided and Ashton isn’t going to let this opportunity get away. He going to show her what is like to be part of the Lockes’ world…..
Prince and Snow worked well together and I can’t wait to see what the future installements bring. As whilst it was short and sweet, it definitely left an impression on me .
I inhale. Fuck, she smells good, really damn good.
“I’m Aston Locke, a mean motherfucker that you just let all up in your space.” I lower my gaze to her throat, see her swallow, watch the slight curve move up and down. “Tell me your name,” I demand with a growl.
I could have said it a little nicer, tried to pretend and be sweet, gentle. But to hell with it; I’m not going to pretend to be someone I’m not.
“Kadence.” Her voice is soft and so damn innocent. “Kadence King.”
God, how I want to defile her, make her see what all the hype is about concerning my brothers and me. I can imagine her naked, spread out for me, willing to do whatever the fuck I say. And she would submit to me, let me leave my marks on her, pretty purple and blue fingerprints that showed my ownership.
“What have you heard about the Lockes?” I want to hear her speak, want to know what she knows. Hell, I want to be pressed right up against her, her small body so soft where mine is hard.
I want to breathe the same air as her.
I want to fucking own her.
What the hell?
I lower my gaze to her chest, see the way her tits press against the stretchy material of her shirt. Her nipples are hard, and my fingers itch to touch them.
I might be a dangerous bastard, a violent fucker, but I don’t touch a girl without her wanting me to. I’ll wait until Kadence begs me, asks me to push my dick deep inside her, making her mine.
“I heard you guys aren’t to be messed with.” Her voice is low, really damn low. “I heard you keep to yourself, aren’t social, and if someone crosses you guys…” She trails off, and I lift my brow, wanting more. “That you take care of it in the only way you know how.”
“The only way we know how?”
She nods and licks her lips. “With guns and bats, hammers, or whatever else you can find to make it bloody.”
I chuckle low. That’s about right.
“And you thought it was a good idea to let one of us in your room, this close to you?”
She shrugs, and I see something shift over her face. She’s trying to be strong.
“Maybe not, but too late now.”
