BLURB:  “ACE LOCKE JETS OFF TO SIN CITY WITH MYSTERY MAN”

Sorry, ladies—and fellas—Hollywood’s hottest action star, Ace Locke, is officially off the market!
The man on Locke’s arm has been identified as Dylan Prescott, the sexy new “it” model currently featured in the latest Calvin Klein ads. Sources tell TNZ the men met on the set of Locke’s upcoming action film Insurrection 2, and that “they only have eyes for each other.”
This is the first public gay relationship for Locke, who came out a year ago, and there has been much speculation on who would finally be the one to catch his eye.
According to multiple eyewitnesses, Locke whisked Prescott away on his private jet for a romantic weekend at Syn, the most exclusive hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. After pictures recently surfaced of the new couple, affectionately named PresLocke, it appears from the possessive way Locke keeps his new beau close that things are heating up.
The world is watching #PresLocke, and we’ll be sure to keep you up to date on this budding relationship!

Locked continues immediately on from the last book and where we left our guys in Las Vegas (yes, you must read this series in order). Their secret is now out, but how will they react?
What really surprised me was Ace. I expected him to be the more scared of the two and at the beginning, he was, but he knows that Dylan is the most important thing in his life and for him, he will be brave and strong.
Whereas Dylan’s career seems to be taking off, Ace is having problems with his. In the past, Ace would have struggled with that but now that he’s met Dylan, he’s changed for the better.  Not only is he now supportive and understanding, he stops Dylan from feeling guilty.  Not only has their relationship grown, it’s going in the right direction.
We get to meet both Ace’s and Dylan’s parents. Both are worlds apart from each other and I felt really sorry for Ace, his are all about appearances with no substance whatsoever but Dylan’s are caring and supporting which we saw in the first book.
The author gave us some very sweet moments, some very hot moments (still fanning myself) and also some very hard moments when Dylan told Ace about his past.
For who loved the Sunset Cove Series, you will be delighted to know that we get to see Derek and Jordan and I have a sneaky suspicion that we may see Logan again in the next  book?  I really hope so, fingers crossed.
I loved this story, it was a combination of romantic hotness entwined with a bit of drama, but I didn’t lose any sleep worrying about them as they got their HEA!

So why 4*? Well, there was a sort of “cliffhanger” (no spoilers from me) and I wanted more –  there’s definitely more to say!  But we are going to have to wait until next year, I’m hoping it’s the early part, I really can’t wait but I’m going to have too – I can do this.
