        I wanted to love this one more than I did and the blame for that lies solidly at the feet of the heroine. I HATED this heroine so frigging much. She was stupid. She was a major bitch. She kept running off into the jungle like a f-ing idiot. If I had been Lock, I would have left her bitchy ungrateful ass stranded out there so a tiger would eat her and put us all out of our misery.

I HATED this heroine so frigging much. She was stupid. She was a major bitch. She kept running off into the jungle like a f-ing idiot. If I had been Lock, I would have left her bitchy ungrateful ass stranded out there so a tiger would eat her and put us all out of our misery. I seriously could not stand her AT ALL.   Apart from the aforementioned heroine hate, the book was a really great read. The writing was good. It was well paced. The plot was engaging and kept me turning the pages. The sex scenes were hot. There wasn't any angst or OW/OM drama. Since they are stranded on an Island there really wasn't many secondary characters. But the couple from CAGED make a quick appearance. I loved Lock. He was hot. He was alpha. He was hung like a horse. He deserved someone WAY better than Jules that is for sure. Last, it was all wrapped up in a perfect ending that will make most readers thrilled. I myself wished Jules would have met an untimely death by getting eaten by a python or something and Lock moved on to someone who could ACTUALLY teach him to be a better person but what can you do? *lol* In any case, this one gets a solid thumbs up from yours truly.

Thrown into a tragic story about the willingness to love even though you have never felt it.  A powerful read that left me speechless.  Sheer perfection. 5 stars

    I will have to say that when this book started out with the plane crash and Juliet was in the pit, I had my doubts about where the romance was going to come from but I am proud to say that I was wrong.

Juliet was torn between the life she had known and the one with Lock that she craved. These two were constantly dealing with miscommunication but the underlying factor was the love they shared. This story was charming and sometimes even humorous to read. I enjoyed every page of it.

So, when Locked was announced I was all KINDS of excited, because let’s be honest ~ I love Clarissa Wild’s dark and dirty mind and the mindfuck she takes me on and what a wild ride Locked was! It was a journey that was all kinds of dirty, smexy and yet sweet and filled with heart that made me step outside of my little bubble and really consider what I’d do if I were in that situation. Okay. I ADORED Lock. He is all kinds of wild and savage...think caveman, but he isn’t an animal. His view of the world is simple and in that simplicity is a pure and bruised heart that just wants to live in a world that gives him peace. I will admit that I had my moments with some of his actions, but the man was so honest and sincere in his actions and feelings that it was difficult to dislike him. Jules, Jules, *big, heavy sigh* Jules. Here’s the thing. If I were in her situation, I know I’d be freaking the fuck out. No question about it. So I totally empathize with her and her reactions and while some of her actions I understood, some just drove me batshit crazy. Common sense and logic went bye bye, and I get why but...damn. What saved her for me was that when she wasn’t freaking out, she was this kind, inquisitive and compassionate woman, a little uptight, but a good woman. I know I don’t even have to say anything about their romance, but I will. It was all kinds of down and dirty smexy. It has that whole Tarzan/Beauty and the Beast vibe (and you all know how much I love my Beauty and the Beast romances) that just totally worked for me. But what really got me was how basic it was. Here are two people alone in the wild with no distractions so they are forced to come as they are. It doesn’t get more real than that. The crazy ran rampant, which is to be expected when extreme opposites are thrown together, and though Jules drove me up the wall, I can’t say I was unhappy that she fought her attraction to Lock as much as she did, if she hadn’t I probably would have written her off. But their HEA is theirs and I’m just happy they worked everything out. There will a wide range of reactions to Locked and I’m firmly in the corner of enjoying the hell out of it. True, I am a Clarissa Wild fan and all, but this was a fun ride and I cannot wait for Chased! ~ Copy provided by the author & voluntarily reviewed ~

However things drastically changed when an accident occurred when her helicopter crash landed and she is the only survivor left of the crash. When Juliet comes to after the crash, she finds there is some life on the island when she finds a huge hunky stranger that has taken her & locked her up. Lock is this savage man; one who is misunderstood but that isn’t something he is responsible for— His behavior is thru no fault of his own. Years earlier, he committed a terrible crime and because decided he was better off leaving on his own and being by himself, that is how he came to be on the island and how he was so savage. Juliet being on Lock’s island has set off a chain of events thru no fault of her own which means Lock cant help how he acts. There was a series of misunderstandings and miscommunication but I have to say, WOW they have sizzling chemistry that is thru the roof HAWT!!! How will they get off this island and will Lock want to leave since he has been on the island for so long…Who saves who in the end ? What demons rise up and cause the most mischief for which main character? This story has many twists and turns but the ending went exactly the way I had hoped for this story flowed and had a kinetic pace that kept me hooked from word one until the very perfect ending. My Rating: 4.8 stars ***** “I received an advanced copy of this book from the author at no cost to me."

    Must Read Cage's book before this book. I Rate This book: 3 1/2 stars This is Lock's book, Cage's Brother. I Like the idea of this book but I have to say it didn't seem very long actually, so it was underwhelming but good at the same time. Juliet is a troubling character to like, she has good and bad moments but honestly to me she wasn't a logical fit for Lock.

    Lock and Cage. Raised to be fighters. Almost animals. Lock, the eldest, in his time as a prisoner, could leave his cage to see the world sometimes, but his hunger for friendship and company was enormous. Exactly so he ended up getting involved in an episode in which he became a fugitive from the police. Years ahead, Lock was well living alone on an island. But a helicopter crash brought to him the person who would become his mate. Juliet Baker joined an expedition whose experimental phase would be Lock and Cage. Raised to be fighters. Almost animals. Lock, the eldest, in his time as a prisoner, could leave his cage to see the world sometimes, but his hunger for friendship and company was enormous. Exactly so he ended up getting involved in an episode in which he became a fugitive from the police. Years ahead, Lock was well living alone on an island. But a helicopter crash brought to him the person who would become his mate. Juliet Baker joined an expedition whose experimental phase would be done in loco, on an uninhabited island. But an accident kills the helicopter pilot and, in the fall, only she survives. Dumbfounded by the shock, she finds herself in the arms of a rustic and strong man, and some time later she discovers that he and wild animals were the only inhabitants of that island. The only thing that goes through Juliet's mind is to return to civilization, but for some reason, Lock doesn't think like her. He knew human beings, he saw their greed and selfishness. He saw what they are capable of. What HE could do for being forced to fight and kill. On the other hand, he wanted Juliet to stay with him forever. There, they could be a happy family. But how, without running water, energy, medicines? But a tiger attack and the appearance of a boat give them the chance to return. Lock is taken to the hospital. Juliet finds herself in love. But could she convince him to live in the city? In love, Lock wants to do anything to make his Juliet happy, but could he withstand the pressure of living among other people? 2,5 stars --------------------- (view spoiler)[ I love Clarissa's books. So after I read CAGED, and heard about Cage's eldest brother, I really wanted to know his story too. Maybe that's my mistake. I had too much expectation. So let me try explain why I gave only 2,5 stars. Lock was born many years before Cage. He was raised to be an underground fighter. That kind of fight that only ends with the death of one of the fighters. As a reward, his "father" let him go out to see the world. The place where he lived and fought was far from everything, hidden, totally outlaw. There was a lot of money involved to keep that place. Although Lock could leave, he was eager to meet people, make connections, have friends. So he planned to one day leave and never come back. At the beginning of Cage's book, the reader learns what went wrong with Lock's exits, so his father decided that he would act differently with Cage. When Lock's story comes, it begins many years after his escape, living alone on an island where an accident occurs, a helicopter crash, and Lock finds himself alone with a woman. When Lock and Juliet return to civilization, he acts as if he had never been in the midst of other human beings. You see, Cage was raised much worse than Lock, WITHOUT ANY contact with the outside world. Cage had not even seen the sun rise or sunset, but he could adapt to living in civilization much easier than Lock. What psychologically speaking - about Cage - would be impossible. About the time Lock and Juliet were on the island, her change of opinion about whether or not to stay on the island was annoying. She wanted to return home where she could go back to her job, her family (her parents), where she would have energy, hospital, technology. But then, she changed her mind every time they had sex. And she changed again wanting to leave. When they are finally rescued, it seems that because he is in the hospital, Juliet finds herself hopelessly in love and determined to do anything for him. Ahn ??? But the worst is when he leaves and she finds herself pregnant. When she calls her mother telling her everything, the mother gives the most bizarre suggestions about how easy is for them to live on an island since they pay someone to take supplies once a month. Ahn ????² But what about pregnancy? Juliet was an only child, that means that baby would be the first grandchild, and the mother simply says that the daughter should go live on an island (Did I say that on the island there are wild animals ??) under no conditions? I know, the couple ends the story together and happily, but as a blogger, mother and therapist, I found the attitudes of the people of "civilization" so bizarre that I felt disappointed with the book. In fact, the least guilty of all is Lock, who was always a victim, raised to act like an animal and did what he could to survive. (hide spoiler)]

Like Cage, Lock is a beast of a man of few words. However, their actions speak volumes. As a reader, I fell in love with Lock's character from the start. He's endearing to me, just like Cage was. Juliet is a wildlife biologist who gets trap on an island after her helicopter crashes. She's hurt and stranded with nowhere to go. Lock comes to her rescue, saving her against his better judgment. However, Juliet doesn't make the task easy. She's fiery, headstrong, and independent. In her mindset, she'd never needed anyone's help. She's all about doing things in her best interest. She doesn't appreciate Lock's way of help, his way of keeping her safe. Lock doesn't do people. He doesn't like them. He loves to be alone, surrounded by nature. He loves his island, his home. His solitude, but Juliet’s appearance in his life causes chaos not just on his mind, but also it awakens his manly urges. His ultimate goal is to have Juliet as his woman. He wants to keep her on the island with him as his companion, but Juliet doesn't share the same goal as Lock. She wants to go back home, back to civilization, and to take the news of her team's death back to their families. Things between Lock and Juliet isn't easy. Lock and Juliet get off to a rocky start. The two can't seem to see eye-to-eye on any situation. Their opinions are different. They aren't on the same page. At least not in the beginning. They are both headstrong. Both thinking they are right regardless of what the other thinks. Trust seems to be a huge factor to both of them. Lock and Juliet had to learn to get along and depend on one another. They got under one another's skin a lot. At one point, all they did was bicker, but I loved it. I liked how they went back and forth. Clarissa Wild did an amazing job writing Lock and Juliet's frustrations with one another. Lock and Juliet attraction to each other played a part in why they butted heads from time to time. Their intense feelings for one another confused them as much as it scared them. They had a raw way of resolving their issues. Things could got pretty heated and heavy between them. I found it to be their best moments. It was like the island had a way of bringing out their animalistic urges. I loved the fact that Lock was very crafty with his hands. He could make anything once he collected the necessary tools for it. A bed, a home and eating utensils, and even a shower was just some of the many things he could craft. The island was his playground. Juliet was resourceful in her own right. She knew from her experience as a wildlife biologist about the different plants and fruits that were edible. She even knew what type of herb to get to make a medicine to clean and soothe cuts. The best things about Locked was the fast-paced story, the story concept and the insanely hot chemistry between Lock and Juliet, and how well-written Clarissa Wild developed our two main characters. Readers, you're going to fall in love with Lock and Juliet. I loved the changes that both of these characters goes through. I loved how their love for one another increased, shaping into something even more beautiful and powerful. They found that their home was where their heart was. Loved all the moments with Cage and Lock. Their reunion with both Ella and Juliet there was such a heartfelt moment. I've wanted everyone to meet since we learned in Caged that Cage had a brother. Finally, there was closure for Ella in regards to her sister. Cage got to see his brother, who shared the same treatment from their father. Also, Lock got to make peace with his past.

I thought he was too stubborn and pouted too much for an alpha male. I found the ending to be unrealistic as well. So, on to what I liked: The premise of the helicopter crash on a deserted island was interesting. I wanted to keep reading to find out what happened. The scenic details helped set the scene and I could picture the island.

    Julie

    Locked by Clarissa Wild To start, Jules finds herself in a terrifying situation when she awakes in a pit, unable to get out. She has no memory at first of a plane crash, but she seems to be the only survivor. And her capture turns out to be a scary, silent, savage. To begin with I wasn't sure how a romance was ever going to happen. I found Jules to be a little foolish and even down right annoying, I mean she was always worrying about her food choices or racing off to escape, to where, I don't know.

But when she became more attuned to her situation, she became more likeable, and she and Lock's rocky start became a friendlier relationship, and then even more. Lock began to open up and reveal his past and a his natural unselfish behaviour and his tender treatment began to show through with many a "hot" encounter. They both though were constantly having disagreements but still a close, loving bond was formed. The story is a little scary and an unusual tale, but it was masterly written and is an entertaining romantic read.

    Romance Between The Sheets

    This story is definitely Dark and mysterious. It has all the action and drama of the helicopter crash and being held in the cave. Unfortunately, after this, the story became somewhat repetitive in her attempts to flee the island and their subsequent makeup sex. Told in dual POV, this definitely assisted in understanding each character’s actions and thoughts. I struggled with parts of this story, especially Lock and his understanding and knowledge of the outside world. Personally, the second half of This story is definitely Dark and mysterious.

I believe I would have understood Lock more if his past was briefly explained at the start. I have not read any other books linked to this story. In hindsight, I would have enjoyed this more if I had read Ella & Cage’s story first? In conclusion, Locked neatly ties up this relationship and I am left with no questions.

    Hot damn! Lock and Juliet is not a story you want to miss! I loved this book, it's so barbaric, and so steamy. My heart goes to Lock for all he went through, from his past. Juliet was funny to me, she made me laugh a couple times. I highly recommend this book, Plus you get a bonus book called Father.

    I am giving this book 5 stars because once you open this book you will not be able to put it down. Juliet and Lock were perfect for each other because they were both head strong people, but they also both come from two different worlds Juliet was raised in civilization and Lock lives on a island that is not only isolated from humans but also is one big danger zone.

Juliet and Lock were perfect for each other because they were both head strong people, but they also both come from two different worlds Juliet was raised in civilization and Lock lives on a island that is not only isolated from humans but also is one big danger zone. Lock lives on that island by choice he didn't like living in civilization there were a lot of things that he needed to escape from including an ugly past. At first Lock thinks that being isolated from the world is what he wants, but when Juliet plane crashes and he saves her from a burning plane he knows he has to keep her. It just took one look and he knew he was hooked, and now that she belongs to him he will never let her go even if she doesn't want to stay with him. The way he looks at it she doesn't have a choice but to stay with him because he will keep her chained up to his bed until she gets it through her head that she belongs to him. Of course Juliet just wants to go home she doesn't want to stay with the scary man that's always trying to feed her meat lol. At first Juliet really pissed me off because she keeps trying to run away it like where you going to go your on a deserted island. I felt like she was so ungrateful. I mean he didn't have to risk his neck and save her she could at least say thank you. But then as I kept reading I started to understand where she was coming from all she wanted was answers. And if he would have talked to her in the beginning and just explain to her he wasn't going to hurt her. I think things could have went differently. So I think it was just miscommunication they both were wrong. I really loved this book because you could see both points of the characters. In the end I loved both of them, and their story was so beautiful. If you have not read this book you should really check it out your going to really enjoy it.

    So I really enjoyed this story in a whole different way than Caged. Which btw I don't think you have to read Caged to understand this book, but I would if you want to understand some of what is going on in the end. This book with Lock is not nearly as dark as Caged was, but it a complicated and emotional story for him. I love Lock, I wanted his story when he was brought up in Caged and could not wait to read his story when we all found out it would be released and Clarissa did not disappoint. Lo So I really enjoyed this story in a whole different way than Caged.

I love Lock, I wanted his story when he was brought up in Caged and could not wait to read his story when we all found out it would be released and Clarissa did not disappoint. Lock is the kind of man you would want to find you if you find yourself lost on an unknown island. Even not growing up the way a "normal" man does he still has more compassion than anyone else would in that situation. Jules is a strong independent woman that has gone through something very traumatic. She is very lucky that Lock is there to protect her and take care of her. I sometimes wanted to smack her for how she treated him, but then I had to get out of my head and into hers and understand that she wants to go home and that I probably am the same way. Especially with having no patience for being stranded on an island with someone I know nothing about. This is a wonderfully written story that I was grateful to read for my honest review. I think Lock is my new book boyfriend. I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

    This story was slow and repetitive. I was also disappointed by the ending. It was pretty unrealistic.

    Yes, yes, yes! Ever since reading CAGED and absolutely loving it I have been so, so thrilled – ecstatic even – to find out that Lock, Cage’s older brother would get a story as well. And ever since then I’ve been waiting on pins and needles for LOCKED to be in my grabby hands. Cage still might be my favorite, but Lock definitely is not far behind: • Savage and wild? Check. • A barely tamed beast of a man? Check. • All caveman, rough and possessive? Check. • Dangerous yet empathetic and sweet? Check, Yes, yes, yes! Ever since reading CAGED and absolutely loving it I have been so, so thrilled – ecstatic even – to find out that Lock, Cage’s older brother would get a story as well. And ever since then I’ve been waiting on pins and needles for LOCKED to be in my grabby hands. Cage still might be my favorite, but Lock definitely is not far behind: • Savage and wild? Check. • A barely tamed beast of a man? Check. • All caveman, rough and possessive? Check. • Dangerous yet empathetic and sweet? Check, check, check! Like his brother, Lock has been raised by a monster, having lived in a glass cage most of his life with only one purpose deeply implemented into him: to fight, to kill and to win. His reward? A few precious hours in the outside world before getting locked up again. And one day … he runs, leaving his prison behind. But his knowledge of the world, of what is deemed right and acceptable, is basic at best – if existent at all – in short: He is totally misunderstood and doesn’t fit into today’s society. At all. So he ends up living on a small remote island all by himself, finally being happy and at peace with the world. But that peace is disturbed when a strange metal bird crashes onto his island, and a beautiful woman with it… Their start is bumpy, unusual, questionable even – but is it really surprising to freak out when being confronted with a barbaric looking beast of a man after surviving a helicopter crash? Is it really surprising that Lock literally locks her away to save both himself and her from herself? Is it really surprising that thoroughly different personalities clash time and again and suffer from miscommunication? And still, through and despite it all … there is this underlying undeniable attraction between them from the moment they meet… Juliet: A scientist who came to the uninhabited island – or so she believed – to research its plant life. Now, with no way to leave the island again, she finds herself torn between finding a way back into civilization again and giving up fighting the pull she feels toward Lock. And, oh, does she fight. She alternates between fighting and freaking the hell out. Poor Lock, who was able to see the kind and compassionate woman beneath only when she was recovering from one of her fits… And Lock himself? Once you look behind all the mud, the hulk of a man, you find tenderness, unselfishness and a simplistic but pure and bruised heart that just wants to live in peace – and maybe, just maybe be loved just the way he is. He hopes so much for Jules to be that person, although she seems to want nothing more than to leave… Theirs is a love story that is as basic, as primal as it can get. Two people living in the wild with nothing to connect them to the outside world, no supplies, and no distractions – all that is available is what the island provides – and the both of them. It’s real, eye-opening and definitely has a Tarzan / Jane ring to it. It’s dirty, sexy and dangerous, yet so, so heartfelt and sweet – beautiful. I love Clarissa Wild’s writing – the things her dark and filthy mind conjures get to me every time. But with this series she hit it out of the park. I don’t know what these most primal heroes of hers are doing to me, I just know I cannot get enough, which is why it makes me so, so, SO happy that there will be a third book!! Cue me freaking out! Eeeek!!! I. CANNOT. WAIT!!!

    This is my first ARC review, and I am over the moon that it is being done for the author whose work introduced me into dark romance. Although you do not need to read CAGED to get the gist of the story, I highly recommend you do. This book was less intense than its predecessor but by no means less satisfying.

Although you do not need to read CAGED to get the gist of the story, I highly recommend you do. This book was less intense than its predecessor but by no means less satisfying. I enjoyed the fact that Clarissa did not regurgitate a carbon copy character when creating LOCK. His experiences although similar to his brothers plight, were quite different too. The bit of "leniency", for lack of a better word,he was shown by exposing him to the outside world as a reward and its effect on him, ultimately led him [us] to where his real story begins. Given that we meet him at such a different time in his life and in his own microcosm of one, that he has meticulously created, it sets the stage for a different captor/captive romance that actually holds some innocence in it, for he is not an innately bad man. If you love the cave-man, barbarian type with a heart as big as Texas and the vulnerability of a child, you will fall in looooooove with CAGE as I did. He sucker punched me right in the gut time and time again and I wanted to reach right into the pages of the book and love him back to life. It is crystal clear he acts solely on survival instincts, not malice. Between his rudimentary attempts at romancing a woman ( adorable at times) and his self- dialogue was precious, I could not help lol as well as tearing up a time or two. All this being said, he is still an Alpha to the core....but that softness/hardness duality had my heart in a vice. As for the female in the story, she was appropriately portrayed and I think her gradual change in cognition as well as heart condition toward CAGE was paced nicely given the length of the book. What I liked most is that Clarissa did not create a "stockholm" situation in a matter of a day or two. She retained a sense of self which only made their love story even more transcendent once it came to fruition. Her feelings changed but they were directly related to the actions taken by this man that showed her time and again who he was underneath the pain and horror be tried to keep at bay. It didn't hurt that the man looked like sex on a stick either...lol. All in all, this was not one of Clarissa's darkest reads, but that does not mean it wasn't a powerful worthwhile read in its own right. It still had all the deliciously carnal sex, pulse pounding survival scenes, and a signature style that is familiar to those who are fans of her work.....do your self a favor and buy both books...you wont regret it.

    The dumbest story ever told This wannabe cold bitch inner dialogue can make more than nauseating. It would be insulting to juveniles to compare her mindset to theirs. I rolled my eyes so many times that I was scared I would not be able to see again. This immature asshole stated that she was dismayed that he caught her fondling his dick.

It would be insulting to juveniles to compare her mindset to theirs. I rolled my eyes so many times that I was scared I would not be able to see again. This immature asshole stated that she was dismayed that he caught her fondling his dick. She ACS she is a researcher who is not a virgin but she acts clueless for no damn reason. The end result is the author’s laziness evolves into a disrespect for my dollar and time. She actually succeeded in making “Chased” seem like a better piece of fiction when you compare it to “Locked”. Pure trash how does Lock appear to be the reasonable adult when his interactions have been limited by his past circumstances and present isolated residence. Running away because she’s afraid he might convince her to stay sounds like an 8-yr old. It’s so wrong. Far too much self loathing (I’m pathetic) and talk of I hate you. I should never be with a man like him. She cares so much for animals but has trouble showing empathy for a man who grew up treated less than an animal. She has the best sex in her life and immediately walks away from Lock because she should be mad. It’s an island stop chasing her. Please leave her miserable ass alone for at least the next 50 pages. She damn sure is no heroine. She is a villain. Cold shoulders, guilt, whining, casting venomous words, judge mental, self-righteous, manipulative, dismissive, weapons of emotional warfare against a man who is so desperate for a female companion that he continuously pleas for her to choose him and for him to be enough for her, let me love you he begs over and over and over and over again. Shame of you Ms. Wild for throwing this trash onto multiple pages and sinfully selling it. I wanted that boat to drown her miserable ass and him to find it too painful to stay on the island so he builds a boat, goes to the mainland to repent for involvement in the death of Ella’s little sister only to find forgiveness and the family he longed for, him discovering siblings and his niece. Learning of his history (family background) and the death of his father. Living with Cage and his family and falling in love with a nurse or nanny so he can feel valued, loved, not a consolation prize. But the author took in another direction that for me was too little too late.

Wow, loved this dark and suspenseful romance! First there was Cage…now there is Lock! Two brothers raised in a cage by an appalling father. I wasn't expecting the turn this story just took; it has quite an unexpected surprise that is jaw-dropping good! What happens when you have suspense, cages, passion, sex, sex—did I say SEX that is off-the-chart hot, and intrigue that makes it very interesting and compelling to keep you glued to the pages of this fascinating story in which you find yourself captivated and so engrossed that you will want to find out what happened next—this is the result of a very good story. You will be addicted from the very first page. I was spellbound by these fantastically described characters that you will find yourself falling in love with. Juliet (Jules) is a wildlife biologist, who along with other fellow biologists, were headed to an uninhabited island to run tests until their helicopter crashed. Lock is a savage untamed beast that lives on an island. Although Lock is known to be ferocious, wild, and dangerous—he is also handsome and sexy as hell. Lock and Jules meet under strenuous circumstances—when Jules helicopter crashed. You get a chance to see the progression of Jules and Lock’s love—theirs was not a quick and easy love story because they had to overcome some adversities, but loves does prevail. Why did the helicopter crash? What happened to Jules fellow biologists? Will Jules find hope, love and trust in Lock? Clarissa Wild manages to weave a suspenseful and twisted plot with artfully developed main characters, and she does a wonderful job of setting the back drop of this story and defining the characters. You felt this story. You lived what Jules lived. You felt her pain and her struggles. Not many authors can write with such intensity that it jumps from the pages into the heart of the reader. There are several twists and turns within the storyline. The scenes are well written, fast-paced, and flow smoothly from one scene to the next. This book will take you through an emotional journey of protectiveness, trust, commitment, and love. The story will also pique your interest and draw you in from the beginning to the very end.

    I love a good twisted, wild, broody and savage type man. Lock was all that. He’s a complicated man with a bruised and tattered heart. Despite all this, he has a simple worldly viewpoint. To get away from it all, he lands himself on an island and is happy about this. What he’s not happy about is the crash that interferes his solitude. Jules is the unlucky recipient of that plane crash. Long story short, Lock finds her and decides he wants to keep her. Jules is a weird conundrum of a character.

Jules is the unlucky recipient of that plane crash. Long story short, Lock finds her and decides he wants to keep her. Jules is a weird conundrum of a character. I tried desperately to like her, but I don’t know if she ever truly won me over. She was annoying as a heroine, however, I can slightly understand and desperately tried to put myself in her place. She was this cacophony of an individual. She could be stupid, witchy and lacking common sense one minute and the next kind, sweet, compassionate and inquisitive. I get that being locked up is obviously a trying, stressful and scary situation, but man chill girl! Now, as a couple, Jules and Lock were hot, steamy, sexy and just plain real. After all, they had to be, there was nothing in the wild, but them. I love Clarissa Wild books and her writing doesn’t disappoint. Even though, I’m on the fence with Jules, I still love Clarissa. I can’t wait to read her next book! 3.75 stars Follow us on: FB Blog Page - https://www.facebook.com/Lagerlefsebo... FB Main Blog Page - https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?...
