Who is Sebastian Lock?
The bar Sophia Pearce is in doesn’t look like much. The wine is bad and the decor worse. But when a sudden attack of curiosity leads her to sneak past security and into the back room, she discovers something unimaginable. The most lavish party she’s ever laid eyes on, in the most unlikely of places.
But that’s nothing compared to what comes next, to the man she meets back there. Sebastian Lock. Gorgeous, commanding, and radiating charm, he is exactly the sort of silver-tongued rake Sophia has sworn to avoid. Unfortunately, he doesn’t care much for her promises.
Every instinct tells her to run, but the chemistry between them is as inescapable as gravity. Soon, he’s opening her eyes to a whole new world of pleasures, pleasures she never thought she’d enjoy.
There’s just one problem. Sebastian is more than he seems. Between the famous company he keeps and the almost paranoid secrecy of his employers, he’s a puzzle Sophia can’t quite solve, and his insistence on keeping things casual forces her to confront the demons of her past.
Can she learn to trust again? Or will Sebastian’s privacy tear them apart?
Sophia is a lawyer who feels unappreciated and unfulfilled in her job. Her hard work isn't enough to get her where she wants, she's got to 'kiss ass' and hang out with the right people, too. (Apparently, she didn't get the life memo on this when she was younger LOL)
Anyhoo, she stumbles along until one night she's out with her friends and they find themselves in a seedy bar. It seems strange, though, that at the back of the bar, a bodyguard stands by only allowing people dressed to the nines and celebrities entrance.
Intrigued and a bit tipsy, Sophia decides to find a way to get past the guard and find out what's going on in the back of the club. When she finally gets in, she immediately knows she's in way over her head. She tries to leave, but a handsome man approaches her.
Sebastian is an enigma. He's a powerful, wealthy man, but he's always a bit of a mystery. He's captivated with Sophia the moment he sees her, knowing she truly doesn't belong there. More than that, he's curious how she got in and likes her sassy mouth. Before he can make his move, though, Sophia leaves.
Sophia knows Sebastian is trouble and the way her body's responding to him isn't something she's quite ready for. So, she gets up to leave, but first she thinks to stop by the bathroom. A few wrong turns later, she ends up in an office belonging to none other than Sebastian. Hearing people outside, she goes into hiding in a broom closet and gets the surprise of her life when Sebastian walks in with his 'secretary' and they have a very naughty meeting.
Sophia is unable to keep quiet in the closet, and Sebastian catches Sophia there. Sophia - now scared sober - does the first thing that comes to her mind: run.
Putting the whole experience behind her, Sophia tries to blend in with her real life again, though it's hard to stop thinking about Sebastian. Just as she's starting to relax, her world caves in as Sebastian shows up as a potential client in her law firm.
Can Sophia keep her feelings for Sebastian at bay, or will she end up falling for the gorgeous man who's got a few secrets of his own?
Locked is an amazing story, even though I was constantly rattled in and out of it because the author’s from Australia and the story's filled with the usual language differences. But the writing was engaging and I loved it – despite the cliffhanger.
- oral sex
- alpha male
