Meet Sebastian Locke.....





Meet Sophia Pearce....


The Alpha Group trilogy by Maya Cross is a three-book, fast-paced, engrossing, and titillating ride set in Sydney, Australia and which tell the story of Sebastian and Sophia. I knew going into reading these books that they would be about yet another sexy billionaire; however, the mystery and fast-paced suspense kept me enthralled and re

I don't know how to rate this book.

It was GOOD, don't get me wrong and I loved it. BUT... the story felt like it was not part of the series... In the first 2 books Sebastian was secretive alpha male... in the last book it was like he was blabbering all his secrets like a 3year old. Telling her everything. It just felt weird.

There was some pretty hot scenes in this book:

1. The Movies (Uhhh I want to go to the movies)
2. The shower scene damn that was hot!

4 Concluding, No More Cliffys, Very Hot Stars

This is the conclusion of the 3 part series. In the first two parts we were always left hanging, dangling, dying to see what was around the corner... and our fearless author would leave us there ...
Teasing and Taunting ... making us click to get our fix on the next chapter for these two....

Was that fair.. or kind...ABSOLUTELY NOT! But she did deliver each time... and in this last part... I really was right there with Sebastian and Sophia every step of

WOWWEEEEEE!!!! Now that was an excellent end to an AMAZING series.

At the end of Lockout, Book #2 in The Alpha Group Series, there was a major cliff-hanger! My jaw was hanging open and I was chanting…OMG! OMG! OMG! I was going crazy, and needed to know what was going to happen nex

Wow, this is a pulsating and incredibly dynamic conclusion to The Alpha Group trilogy. The action picks up exactly where we left off after the dramatic cliffhanger in Lockout and Sophia in a serious predicament and the pace of the story never falters from this moment on. We have just about everything here - beautiful romance, incredibly erotic sex scenes, danger, action, despair, hope and happiness. Just about everything you could hope for in an erotic trilogy.

We've come full circle from the mom

OMG...I didn't see that coming. I am so needing some answers quickly. I hope the third book comes out sooner than expected!!!

I'm not entirely sure I would rate the book as a whole a full 4 stars, but the last 30% gets it to that had me turning the pages faster than my eyes could read. I loved having Sebastian's POV and without that this book wouldn't have worked as well as it did. The action at the end was fantastic! I've also decided that I need to invest in a detachable to Home Depot.

I was with Maya Cross and her journey with The Alpha Group series from day one and in that time, I fell in love with these books one by one. The first one - Locked - the one where we meet Sophia and Sebastian and where they meet each other and start something that will change their lives. The second one - Lockout - when they both realize things have changed and they want to be much more, but there are many secrets and trust is a fragile thing,

Heartbroken and held captive, Sophia doesn't know what's going on. She knows she's in trouble and not sure of anything at this point.

Her life isn't going as planned and her options aren't looking promising until Sebastian comes to the rescue.

There is no time to reunite, they must move.

As safety comes into view, both their lives are about to unravel in a secretive world of The Alpha life that Sebastian has chosen for himself. Never wanting to put Soph

I'm not even sure what I was expecting to get from this book, but I don't think I got it. Oh, well...

At least now I know who Sebastian Lock is, and what The Alpha Group is. That's something.

This book was quite different from the previous two. It had more suspense, shooting, kidnapping, killing, betrayal, intrigue, and what not. It wasn't written entirely in Sophia's point of view, which for me was a good thing. There were some surprising twists at the end, and still I just wasn't feeling it.

Unlocked by Maya Cross

4 stars!!

“This isn’t me giving up my life, Sophia,” he said. “This is me beginning it.”

I had been eagerly awaiting the conclusion to Sebastian and Sophia’s story and I was not disappointed! Unlocked is the last in The Alpha Group trilogy and the story picks up straight after the dramatic cliff hanger that we were left with at the end of Lockout. Sophia had been kidnapped and she is locked away, she doesn’t know if anybody realises she is missing especially as her and Sebast

My congratulations to Maya Cross for an outstanding debut series! I loved all three books, but the last one, Unlocked, kept me at the edge of my seat. Thank goodness, I finished editing my own upcoming book because I spent the whole day reading it--gave up a trip to the gym and even my poor doggies didn't get their walk! I highly recommend all three books to anyone who loves a well written, steamy erotic romance series and the bonus of gripping action and suspense. I look forward to reading more ...more

not sure what to say... it wasnt very sexy and i was not invested in the characters. perhaps i would have enjoyed it more if the three books had been combined into one long book....i was looking forward to reading this but i think having a 2 month gap between reading part two and reading part three was a mistake... it lost its momentum. it did have a good ending though.

It was obvious that Sebastian Lock had met his match in Sophia and fallen for her hard. He really tried to do the right thing by her and stay away for her own safety. But, this time it wasn’t enough, someone was out for revenge and Sophia was prime hostage number 1. We were left with such a cliff-hanger at the end of book 2 and I really couldn’t tell where it was going to go next. Luckily enough book 3 wasn’t far behind and I dived straight in! This instalment is written in The POV of Sebastian
Rating 3.50* Book 1-3 of "The Alpha Group"

This is the final book in the Alpha Group trilogy. While the characters were memorable, especially Sebastian, I just never really warmed up to Sophia. She was a very strong heroine, which I loved, but at times she was crass, short on empathy and possessed a cringe-inducing lack of BOUNDARIES. As we didn't have a strong physical description, my opinion of Sophie was based on her words, thoughts and deeds. And I found her to be a typically selfish, 20-some

I'm going to cheat a little and sum up my thoughts for all three books in one review. I snagged up Locked for free just recently. I'm usually not a fan of short novella series but this was totally me - - hot, rich, powerful and dominant. I'm a sucker for anything closely resembling Fifty or Crossfire and this was right up my alley.

I knew this was going to be a good one because the second I finished Locked I had to immediately dive into Lockout and then again with Unlocked. The third book took me

What I Loved: First of all, whoa! Locked Out ends with a huge cliffhanger and thankfully Unlocked picked right back up so you don’t miss a beat. Sophia is immediately faced with uncertain circumstances and you don’t know what is going to happen next. I loved every freaking minute of it!

I like that this story changed a little in that the book switched point of views so we got more of a whole story rather than just from Sophia’s. I loved it because you got to
The conclusion to the Alpha Group was great read. We were left with quite a cliffhanger ending in Lockout, and with Sophia now in the hands of unknown kidnappers she has to wait to find out if Sebastian will rescue her, does he even know she was taken? Will he even care?

But we know Sebastian's reasons for leaving Sophia were about protecting her, not about not feeling love for her. So he comes for her. And we get to see his side of things with the shifting point of views. We see first hand the d

Intrigue, betrayal, and scorching sex...the final installment of The Alpha Group will keep you riveted.

There's a lot more action in Unlocked than in the previous two installments as Sebastian's secrets are finally revealed. Sophia continues to prove that she's smart and capable enough to not only survive in this shadowy world, but to help Sebastian take a stand against enemies that seem to be coming from

Okay, so we didn't have to wait too long for the end of this trilogy, yet we still had to wait.
First off, I had to remind myself what was going on, as the "steam" had already let out and I went into this read cold. Though this is what author's get for cliff hangers.
So, this couple finally get back together...yadda yadda yadda....the end.
Yep, that's how I felt. It was just so BORING. I mean, maybe all the political nonsense of the Alpha group would have made more sense and been more interesting

So glad I finished this series. Suspense and hot sex a real page turner.

I don't like secret organization groups, they don't work for me at all! That said I enjoyed this 3rd installment in the series, the h/H really worked great together and the sex scenes were nicely written[though sometimes the use of some words really yanked me out of the scene]. I figured the mystery fairly quick, but that doesn't mean that I didn't like reading that I've been right from the start :D

All in all I spent some enjoyable hours with this series.
