Under Locke Free read ñ 108 Ä He was my boss my brother's friend a Widow an ex felon and a man I'd seen casually with a handful of women But he was everything that gripped me both the good and the bad Worst case scenario if things turned awkward between us I could go somewhere else I'd gotten over epic heartbreak before one wouldn't kill me After movingImpatient and doesn't know how to tell time And the last thing they ever expected was each other But it was either the strip club or the tattoo shop she should have chosen the strip club Babe I've handpicked everythin' and everyone in here I know what I want and I get what I want he breathed And I keep what's mine. If you hate women you will absolutely love this book Well since I'm not masochistic it was a downright disgusting and painful read but I really wanted to rate it so I barreled through Iris is the shy insecure victim who in her almost 25 years of life have never had sex Why Why is it so important for the girl to always be a fucking virgin I don't know why it's pissing me off except that it sends the wrong message to girls That as soon as they have sex they're tainted and damaged goods or something Womens worth is somehow wrapped up in how many sexual partners they've hadAnd Dex obviously he is a moody possessive horndog And since he is a guy the same rules does not apply to him I just kept waiting for Iris to snap and tell him to fuck off He gets to have casual sex with whoever but she's not even allowed to talk to guys She's a fragile flower that can't go to the store without an escort and can't under any circumstances live alone She's not allowed to make her own goddamn decisions about anything Iris like many main female characters have beer flavored nipples She cannot leave her home without guys assaulting her left right and center And I hate how those moments they're many btw feel so incredibly choreographed because it's only so Dex can show up and get in the guy's face and save the dayWhen Dex told her to button up her cardigan because she was showing a little to much collarbone I wanted to reach into the book a slap him silly Iris already dress like a sixty year old librarian Why not just demand that she wear a burkaIt's also one of those books where she hates him he acts like an asshole sexual tension and then floodgates of mushy love I guess it had a little potential And had it been less cliché and Iris had been given a backbone then maybe I would have enjoyed it MaybeOh and I hate how much Iris felt sorry for herself It made me feel less sorry for her because of it Having gone through everything that she had I would think she'd have a little tougher skin But if someone so much as looked at her funny her lip started uivering It just didn't feel believable that she could be that meek with that upbringing I mean I'm not even that meek and life hasn't handed me that many lemonsAnd this was sadly just the tip of the iceberg So anyway rant over

Er moving to Austin following six months of unemployment back home Iris Taylor knows she should be glad to have landed a job so uickly even if the business is owned by a member of the same motorcycle club her estranged father used to belong to Except Dex Locke might just be the biggest jerk she's ever met He's rude. HOLY crap Am I really the first person to review this bookWell In case you were wondering I got my money's worth on this book It was long not too long loved the charactersIris was recommended to be a tattoo artist front desk lady by her half brother Sonny Sonny is friends with the owner of the tattoo shop Dex Now they definitely don't have any immediate sexual tension Dex was an ass to her Both Iris and Dex are bad with new people Iris because she's just super shy and Dex because he just doesn't like the process of people getting used to him or that's what I gathered from his personalityThough Iris was really shy and a beginning a pushover she never did get on my nerves Recently I've been feeling real judgy towards heroines I just find something that always bothers me Thinking about it now I don't think I was ever like that with Iris Even though she's mousy she's still really strong She finds the positive in really shitty situations Dex is hawwtt Sure in the beginning he was a dick to her he had his reasons not a reasonable reason but a reason I don't think he bothered me too GREAT CHARACTERSThis couple does have a somewhat slow buildup They don't get intimate until the last half of the book I didn't really mind that because the author didn't bore with unnecessary details For an MC book this book doesn't have much angst and again I'm totally ok with thatOverall great read worth my money worth my timeHopefully you all enjoy this book as well as I did D

Under LockeHe was my boss my brother's friend a Widow an ex felon and a man I'd seen casually with a handful of women But he was everything that gripped me both the good and the bad Worst case scenario if things turned awkward between us I could go somewhere else I'd gotten over epic heartbreak before one wouldn't kill me Aft. Please see of my reviews at wwwbookaddicthavencomAlthough this was not the raunchy offensive biker romance that I had anticipated I really liked 'Under Locke' Unlike most MC romances this story does not focus heavily around the debauchery of the clubhouse and the biker lifestyle There is a little danger and some club business but it is in the background vs being the central focus of the story'Under Locke' is a very slow burn romance It did take some time for me to get into this story However once I did I was hooked This author definitely didn't rush anything I thought I would combust long before these two even kissed There was plenty of anticipation and sexual frustration with this oneIris Taylor aka Ritz has recently moved to Austin Iris is broke and looking for a fresh start after death and disease have upended her life She is staying with her half brother Sonny who has hooked her up with a job at a tattoo shop owned by his friend DexIn no time Iris figures out why Dex is in need of help The guy is a royal ahole He has managed to chase off a string of assistants before Ritz with his rude insulting behavior Dex has a total lack of patience and a hot temper He says what he's thinking before stopping to think about how nasty or inappropriate his comments might be Yeah it took me a while to warm up to this guyIris is the polar opposite of Dex She's sweet and innocent having missed out on a lot of life's experiences as she was forced at a young age to become the sole provider for her younger brother after her mother fell ill After her mother's health issues Iris was faced with her own health crisis and then the death of her grandmother Needless to say her life was not easy and it didn't allow a lot of time for the usual parties and dating that comprised the social life of most young women her ageThat being said this book does have one of the big romance genre clichés that will drive some readers crazy Iris is the uintessential naïve good girl virgin Dex is anything but virgin like He's the stereotypical manwhore that has slept around with a large part of Austin's female population without discrimination This isn't really a problem for me but I thought I'd mention it because I know it is something that many readers can't stand Despite their differences Iris and Dex find themselves attracted to each other Dex tries to stay away from Ritz out of loyalty to her brother She tries to deny her attraction to him because she knows that he is nothing but trouble What follows is a series of absurdly jealous actions by Dex while a clueless Iris wonders why he is acting like such a jerk Perhaps if I was in a different mood when I listened to this story I might have been irritated As it is I found their back and fort antics to be highly amusingOne thing that the two of them have in common is deadbeat fathers When Ritz's sperm donor messes with some dangerous people Sonny and her are placed in danger This led to some interesting situations and a mild sense of suspense However I can't say that I ever had that on the edge of my seat anxious feelingIn the end things work themselves out There was plenty of back and forth throughout the book followed by plenty of groveling That was a big plus for me I love it when my heroes have to do some groveling Overall it was a nice sweet story It was different from other MC romances that I've read but that was okay This was my first book by this author but definitely won't be my last
