Locke (Corps Security #5) by Harper Sloan - Blog Tour & Review


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.*

Kristine's Review:

Reviewed: September 2014.

Locke was the most anticipated of the Corps Security series, I had always felt like Maddox had the biggest story to tell, the most secrets hidden and I couldn't wait to dive into his past to learn more about this man. The biggest shock for me, was how bigger role Emmy's upbringing and past would play in this story, I was prepared for a darker read this time around but I never suspected so much pain would shape the person Emmy had become.

There's this idea that Harper Sloan touches on in Locke that Maddox and Emmy recognised a past of pain and suffering in each other like kindred spirits and for me, that simple idea was so eloquently written, these two wounded souls felt a connection to one another that surpassed space and time.

This story was about so much more than just the pain of the past, it was about overcoming the worst of hurts, the worst kinds of betrayal, it was about finding even just that spark of light in the darkness, it was about finding the person, finding your person - the one who just gets you, sees the pain in your eyes through the smile on your face. It's about finding that person that makes the pain of your past easier to carry, the one that not only gives you a reason to fight your demons but helps fight them with you.

Even with high expectations, Locke surpassed every one of them, it had me greedily reading every word, simultaneously speeding up and slowing down, both eager to finish and reticent to say goodbye to this series. If you want a series about alpha males with heart and smoking hot sexy times this is one series you don't want to miss.

About the Author


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.
