Hmm, I'm thinking I've come to the end of the road with this series, I'm definitely not feeling the love like I did with the earlier books.

"You're my woman." - Locke Oliver

Holy shizzlesticks, if that wasn't the hottest book in the history of hot books! And I think I said it sometime while reading it, but wow, seriously, I think Cristin Harber outdid herself with Locke's story!

If you think you have seen it all with the Titan books, and that Mrs. Harber has nothing more or new to offer, think again. Because this new addition to the series just proves she has a lot more to tell us about her characters and their universe!

Locke Oliver
It took me an extraordinarily long time to go through this book that I'm actually wondering whether it's sort of the end of the Titan series for me right now.

Having been a fan of Titan in the early days, I wondered how Cristin Harber was going to go on with the series after Jared Westin's core team had found their respective HEAs. ‘Locke and Key’ is a book past that particular series arc but I’ve been struggling since the chapter closed on the core team.

I've admittedly found myself lukewarm an

***4 Unexpected Stars!!***

What was a nice, unexpected adventure that I did not expect! This was my first read from Cristin Harbor and I’m sure it will not be my last. Although this is the 8th book in the series, it can be read as a standalone which is a plus.

Locke and his team work for Titan and they are sent to extract one of their clients from Russia who is a teacher at a high profile private in Washington, D.C. whose students are mainly the kids of high-ranking officials in the government. Du

Okay, this story was dialed to eleven from the very first page! Lots of danger, intrigue, action and tense situations, as expected from this series. LOCKE AND KEY is a solid addition to this series and a must-read.

Locke Oliver and Cassidy Noble have something in common: a past shrouded in loss, pain and anger. Locke blames Cassidy for the loss of his Army unit and she lost her career as a result of the fallout from those events. But Cassidy is not one to stay down for long and she's on a quest t

Reviewed by Gemini

Locke and Key is the 10th book in Cristin Harber’s Titan Series that centers around a well funded American Black Ops organization that is very good at getting the job done at all costs. And somehow, there is always a love connection. I have read several books in this series and they are by far the best military romances that I have ever read. I would attribute my affinity for this series to the fact that they always play out like a well-scripted movie with just the right amount

I could have read this as an early copy but was busy with other books at the time so chose to wait and pre order so I could read at my leisure, which I am pleased I did. I very much enjoyed the initial sparks between the two main characters, the gradual realisation of understanding that Locke had made a mistake in their past and then apologising. The gang all stepping in to sort him out. The events that follow are intense, suspenseful and there is some graphic violence. The plot is based around ...more

 It's an engaging and entertaining story with a complex hero and heroine, who have quite an antagonistic relationship. This pair share a past, one that they both equate to loss and anger. Whilst Locke is a quiet, brooding alpha who has strong protecting and caring tendencies and is loyal, there is more than meets the eye. Cassidy is a like-able character who is strong, stubborn, very determined and feisty. They have an intense connection, but relationship has quite a bit of push and pull, and pe ...more

Another great story

Really enjoyed the story. Enemies to lovers, Cassidy and Logan, had a lot to get through in this story. Logan was a great H and Cassidy was a tough as nails h. I will tell you my only pet peeve was the nickname he calls her throughout the book “beauty”, that was annoying and awkward. I just thought that was creepy and weird....just me. The rest of the book I enjoyed. The storyline, suspense, plot, all good....just hated the nickname.

Would I recommend? Yep

A sultry, action packed, fast paced and scorching hot Military Romance with a whole lot of BANG...

All hail the Queen of guns and six-packs...or are they eight packs? Every. Single. Time a Cristin Harber book hits my kindle it's like all my special holidays, birthdays and orgasms rolled into one. FML, my hands are still shacking with excitement over Locke and Key... there's a lot of nervous energy going on, good energy... I may implode. So...

This is Titan. It's what we do.

Every new Titan novel published is like coming home. Each one is a favorite in it's own way, and Locke and Key doesn't fail to provide the same feels and swoons that have been present since Winters arrived on the scene in book one, and with this 17th book in the Titan/Delta world that is quite the accomplishment!

I absolutely LOVE Locke and his Cassidy. Trying to put into words the how and why and intensity of it is so difficult! I fell in love with Locke quickly,

Boss Lady delivers another awesome one!

Ok, if you haven't read Titan.... WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!?!?!?

Locke and Key is amazing! You'll fall in love with Locke and Cassidy and the rest of Team Titan ( phft as if you're not already)

This book has it all. Pain, love, loyalty, action, and a backstory that pulls at your heartstrings. I couldn't put it down and anyone who reads this won't be able to either!

Awesome job Boss Lady! Love ya!

I loved Locke and Cassidy. Locke was stubborn, even when faced with the truth until reality smacked him in the face. Cassidy doesn’t back down, especially when it means lives are at stake. She has integrity and tells it like it is. No BS’ing from her. Butting heads at first, more from Locke being stubborn, they eventually find how well they fit together. I loved every minute of it. I also love the glimpses of Delta team, and can’t wait to read those books now.

I’m tempted to make this my shortest book review ever:


But I won’t leave it at that because, one, Cristin Harber deserves more words than that, and two, I think a three sentence review would be frowned upon…

Really, though, if you are a fan of military romance/romantic suspense, you NEED to be reading the Titan series. Yes, NEED. She’s one of the best in this genre (and for me, I can’t think of anyone I’ve read who I think does it bett

The request for extraction had come from St. Andrew’s High School that the FSB was hunting one of their own teachers.

By Cristin Harber

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

Patriotism and Honor.

Locke is a passionate man, but a very subdued man. Still waters run deep. He doesn’t say much until he has something to say. He feels betrayed. He is trying to deal with the gut-wrenching grief that he is living with 24/7 from the loss of his entire Unit. Locke feels as though no one understands the depth of his rage and grief.

Cassidy is a hard-nosed journalist. She is a journalist fall

It's changing at Titan with the new guys joining Jared. Sugar , Rocco, Parker and the rest of the team. The boys are back and so is delta ........

Locke is still dealing with the death of 26 members of his old unit in Sadir City, Iraq and he blames Cassidy , a disgraced and vilified journalist, who was not only embedded in Sadir with his unit but came home to have interrogation and blame being heaped on her.

Wow. I was a little surprised at the character combination, but Ms Harber makes it work. Pairing a reporter with a black ops warrior was a risk given the fact that Titan operates in such secrecy and well, you know, she's a reporter.

I loved the pairing of Locke with Cassidy (aka Flamethrower) personality wise. They are both strong and opinionated but the past still haunts both of them. My only grievance was I felt Locke let go of the past too fast once he was confronted with it. They never really

Loved it! Yet again Cristin Harber doesn't disappoint. Locke is super sexy and a sweety. I love when a man comes up with cute nicknames and Locke threw out many! Cassidy is a tenacious reporter and a force to be reckoned with. My heart was constantly going crazy throughout the entire book. Between the chemistry between Locke and Cassidy, the steamy sex scenes, and the stomach clenching fear induced from interactions with Russian mobsters, you won't be able to get off the rollercoaster ride that ...more

From the first page to the last this book is a non stop action, danger, very tense situations that will keep reader reading every last work.

Locke and Key was a little hard to enjoy because readers will never get to stop and take a breath from the endless action and even when things start to slow down a little within a page or two the readers is thrown back into action.
Locke and Key has enough sexual tension to kill the readers with anticipation.
All in all it is a fast summer read that fits in

I have been a huge fan of the Titan series since it came out. This one took a bit for me to get in to, but once I did, I loved it. This wasn't my favorite of the series, but it was definitely worth the read. I feel some things were left hanging, what happened to Ivan? Who tried to kill her and what happened to them? It was mentioned early on that Ivan was trying to sell his own daughter and granddaughter, but that wasn't mentioned again, why? I am super curious about Victoria, so I can't wait fo ...more

I am a HUGE fan of Cristin's Titan series and I couldn't wait to read Locke's story. I loved that Cristin gave him such a strong match in Cassidy. She is smart and sassy and so perfect for him. You wouldn't think that there was a possibility of them with what they had gone through especially with Locke's first reaction to seeing her again. Their connection wasn't to be ignored though. When Cassidy becomes part of a mission, things definitely change between them. I so enjoyed their story.

Cristin Harber has created another intriguing addition to the Titan series, with Locke and Key. Locke and Cassidy's story is an enemies to lovers military romance. It's an intense story, that is incredibly well written and told from multiple points of view. Although this title can be read as a standalone, anyone who has read Bishop's Queen, the previous title will be familiar with Locke.

Within the plot of Locke and Key, intrigue, action, danger and conspiracy theories abound. It's an engaging a
