I had a hard time connecting to any of the characters and was a little put off by how juvenile they tended to act. Most of these characters are in their mid to late 20’s yet they act like horny teenagers. The book had a lot of potential though and I’m glad that I decided not DNF it half way through.
The last half of the book was pretty entertaining and interesting. There were still some eye rolling juvenile moments and sex where it just seemed to be there for sex sake and not to advance the romance or the storyline. The ending really amped things up which I was excited about. I look forward to checking out the second book in the series. I’m intrigued by Kane and the information Christa discovered about all of them.
Jake and Christa had a ton of chemistry and I liked the way they played off of each other. Christa brought an interesting element to the Tribe and I look forward to seeing her become a part of the group in later books. I liked Quinn and Rose and I hope we get to see more of them again. I would also love to get to know a little more about the other Tribe members. Sadie was fun to have around. It makes me wonder if she’ll be the focus of the next group since she was around more in this one.
This idea is very sci-fi meets paranormal and I am very intrigued by where it’s going to go.

I loved it so much that I just want to gush about every single thing that made me love this so much. But I can’t. I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone. So instead of going into details, I’m going to do my best to vaguely gush about this book.
This book starts up right where Aced ends and shows us exactly what Ace and Dylan plan to do with the fact that they have been outed as a couple despite wanting to keep things a secret. This book deals with every aspect of what being a public figure…or the boyfriend of a public figure, is about. I was impressed with the depth that Ella and Brooke took the story. I was impressed with everything that they brought to light. I loved getting to see Dylan’s family again, the Skype scene in Aced was hilarious and the time with them in Locked is even better, not just because there were some laugh out loud moments, but also because of the heartstrings that it tugged on.
This book had my heart all a flutter. I fell even more in love with Ace and Dylan. These two are absolutely amazing together, hot, sexy and so adorably sweet. This book is definitely a swoonworthy read that I can’t wait to re-read. I also loved that we got to see Derek and Jordan, love those two and that we got a brief glimpse at some of our other beloved characters from past Ella and Brooke books.
These two ladies know what they are doing. I can’t help but fall for every character they write and Ace and Dylan are no exception. I cannot wait to see what comes next from them. I will snap it up and devour it just as quickly as I have every book that came before it.
