Publisher's Summary

I suppose some of us have to get really dirty before we can become truly clean.

I was allegedly South Dakota's most famous Old Lady. Sixteen years ago, I had survived my Old Man's murder.

Never again. Never again will I surrender my heart. Never again will I sacrifice to the Club. But that all changed in one night. I came home and crashed into him, and my past and present blew up in my face. Both of us lonely, running on empty, and unwilling to admit it.

Until now. Now I feel things I'd forgotten about, want things I'd cut out of my insides.

Love not only stings when you lose it, when it's ripped away. When it first sinks its teeth into you, it can cut just as raw and sting just as deep. I'd forgotten that.

Who holds the keys to betrayal? To suspicion? To trust? To brotherhood? To family? To redemption and a bleeding heart? Right now, I just might.

Unexpected

This is a very unique take on the MC theme. The story goes back and forth from past to now. Grace was the most well known "old lady" in the Dakotas but after her life going terribly wrong, she left for many years. Now she is coming back and has a new tie to the MC that she hasn't expected.

This book is less dirty and raunchy MC and more emotional and angsty and full of real content. I really loved it. Lucy Rivers and Vikas Adams were great together. Although the majority of the book is narrated through Grace's POV so you get way more Lucy out of it.

AN MC ROMANCE WHERE SPARKS FLEW & DANGER LOOMED

Since the violent and bloody death of her MC husband sixteen years ago Grace has been living a nomadic life bouncing from one town to another - never staying anywhere long enough to make friends, put down roots.. or to find a new love. But a phone call from her sister Ruby changes all that because Ruby has shocking news that will bring Grace home.. and it will also eventually bring love back into Grace's life. However, it will come at a price - and the price will be tough, challenging, dangerous, heartbreaking, twisted and it'll take her walking back into somewhere she vowed never to go there again.. the One Eye'd Jacks MC Clubhouse where faces from her past will stir up more than happy memories.. trouble.

Lock (aka Miller) is the Road Captain for the One Eye'd Jacks MC and, while at a local Bar, he sees a beautiful confident woman drinking alone so he happily steps up, introduces himself and finds out, through flirty banter and hot body to body dancing, that they have great chemistry together. This attraction leads to spending one sizzling night together.. but sadly for Lock in the morning she's gone. Lock was about to be further shocked because he knew he'd seen her beautiful face before.. he just didn't realize where from and, when the mysterious, sex woman calmly walk into HIS Clubhouse the next day, the mystery was spectacularly solved and it would send him, and the older members of the Club, reeling. It would also be the start of a challenging romance where he would have to knock down Grace's walls, uncover well hidden secrets, be a shoulder to cry on, carry out his manipulative President's chilling orders, tread carefully when a rival Club kidnaps Grace, act on unwanted twists and overcome his jealous nature before there could ever be a chance of a future with Grace.

This is told in the present but with flashback chapters of Grace's past when she was a much revered Old Lady to her husband Dig and everyone else's beloved ’Little Sister'. She's a strong likeable kickass heroine who'd already been challenged in life with the tragedy that hit her and her husband hard.. but her challenges were far from over. A good looking, sweet, sexy, droolworthy, understanding, compassionate alpha hero who wants to love his woman.. but instead he has to sit back and watch as she's used like a sexual pawn to flush out secrets from their rivals the Demon Seeds MC. The plot was detailed, enjoyable and all consuming as Grace and Miller try to forge out a relationship during very difficult times and, for them, it was one step forward three steps back at times. And during those times there was plenty of sex, beautiful highs and crushing lows that would inevitably break them apart.. but don't worry - their fates were destined to be entwine forever.. eventually. Grace was in her late 30s and Miller was 40 - so grown up attitudes not YA or NA. Mainly told from Grace's POV but there were chapters from Lock's too, a host of secondary characters and the narration was great.

Worth a credit? Not quite as raw, dirty, violent or all dirty talking badboy Alpha as some of the MC books I've listened too but that wasn't a bad thing.. just different and YES, IMO, this is definitely a creditworthy listen.

Prepare for a book hangover

This one left me so emotional. I literally cried sometimes because I really felt for Grace. I admired her courage, honesty and strength. I also liked that he was in her late 30s/ early 40s and that this was about finding love again after loss. When I finished this one, I immediately went and read the sequel (as the audiobook hadn't been made yet), and then the next book and the next book. I can't wait until they are available on audible. It was so hard for me to let go of these characters because they were so complex. However, I'm going to admit that I liked Dig more than Miller. Miller was great but I was really captivated by Grace's past and her relationship with her deceased husband. This story is really gritty and messy and pretty tragic but it was captivating.

We hear more from Grace than we do Miller. I think that Lucy Rivers was a good choice for Grace, Vikas Adam was okay but maybe Joe Arden or Aiden Snow would have been a better fit.

What a pleasant surprise!!!

My favorite type of romance book is where there are steamy scenes surrounded by a good story. This listen succeeded all my expectations. There was some real and true pain in this story and it was not full of love and kisses by the two main characters. I utterly enjoyed how Cat went into the relationship with Digg. This is probably one of my favorite listens of the year.

BRAVO!!!

Lock and Key is a emotional roller coaster. So many Highs and oh the lows!!! It's written with the past, present and an outside point of view. This doesn't stop the flow of the story line, but causes you to travel father into the writers journey. I was taken away by Graces story, her heartache, her courage and her flaws.

Worth the credit!!!!!

Second chances

One afternoon Grace Quillen lost her husband and her baby and her world stopped. She coped for 16 years by moving from state to state, never settling, never putting down roots. Until the day her sister calls her home, she had cancer and needs bone marrow. Grace drops everything to return home. Just outside town she has a chance meeting with a man named Miller, after spending the night together she wakes to see the tattoo on his back and runs. The last time she saw it was on her husbands back 16 years earlier.

Miller is shocked when Grace also known as "little sister" walks into the One Eyed Jacks club house and turns his world upside down.

Loved it!
