Overview

He was my boss, my brother's friend, a Widow, an ex-felon, and a man I'd seen casually with a handful of women. But he was everything that gripped me, both the good and the bad. Worst case scenario if things turned awkward between us, I could go somewhere else. I'd gotten over epic heartbreak before, one more wouldn't kill me.

--

After moving to Austin following six months of unemployment back home, Iris Taylor knows she should be glad to have landed a job so quickly... even if the business is owned by a member of the same motorcycle club her estranged father used to belong to. Except Dex Locke might just be the biggest jerk she's ever met. He's rude, impatient and doesn't know how to tell time.

And the last thing they ever expected was each other.

But it was either the strip club or the tattoo shop.

... she should have chosen the strip club.

--

"Babe, I've handpicked everythin' and everyone in here. I know what I want and I get what I want," he breathed. "And I keep what's mine."

Nook has a lot of trouble with this book. Super frustrating as it's a great story and well written. If the book weren't so good I would have given up on it by now! Formatting must be bad as the Nook isn't able to open it without multiple attempts. Maybe it's time to move on to a Kindle!

The book was great. However it did not work properly on my Nook nor on my smart phone Nook app. It froze and I was unable to read passed a certain point. I had to purchase the book on the Kindle to finish it.

I thought it was really good, however, i seemed to have the same problem as the others, it kept freezing on my nook. It was extremely frusterating.... i wasnt able to finish.

Unexpected great read! Over 400 pages. If you like Kristen Ashley, you will like this book as well. Very similar writing style. Highly recommend - you'll be glad you did.

My first read by this author and I must say I enjoyed it very much. I absolutely love reading MC books and this was definitely a page turner. I enjoyed all of the characters especially Dex and Sonny. They were sweet but crass..gotta love bikers. Iris was a very sweet girl, went through a whole lot in her young life and dealt with her problems in her own way...very stupidly...hence why she was always getting yelled at. I give her points for trying, she was super cute but I really dislike weak female leads and she was the epitome of a weak female lead, that's why I gave the book four stars instead of five. Overall it was a really good book, had a few super cute inked up bad ass bikers, loads of foul language and a whole lot of raw sexiness...is there going to be another book? SR

I'm not sure if it's my nook or the book, but I had so much trouble reading this book, my nook would freeze and then crash and it also takes forever to turn the page. I really was enjoying the book but now im just kinda stuck.

When the story starts off by wishing a venereal disease on the hero because he is such a bastard, but doing it in such a funny way, that is my kind of story! “….I only Kind-of sort-of hoped he came down with an infectious illness in his private parts.  But you know, something he could get medicine for.” I was dying laughing! DYING!  I loved Iris; she was awesome, a bit on the meek side but I Loved how she had a running commentary in her head and started referring to Dex as The DICK.  I mean seriously, she was hilarious, here is a very innocent young woman thrown in with rough and tumble bickers, and tattoo artist, and she is just doing her thing.  She was so incredibly likeable and cute.  She cried a bit too easy, and I wish she would have nut punched Dex more than once, but I still LOVED her.  Dex on the other hand is well, a DICK!  After a while he becomes a more loveable dick but yes, still a dick, a very good looking one but the name is very apropos.  I loved listening to how his and Iris relationship developed over time; this wasn’t a quick romance by any means, it was a slow burn, and I LOVED it!  When it did finally happen, Oh good lord!  Let me wipe my drool!  Dex could melt anybody’s heart! “You’ve gotta be the best thing I never knew I wanted.” I mean come on! Is that not like the best line, EVER!  Under Locke was such an incredibly funny, heartwarming, and utterly perfect contemporary romance, I will be listening to it again and again!  It’s getting 5 Huge Boundless Stars!...Sara

I absolutely loved Kulti, but this one was just okay for me! It was hard for me to connect with the characters and Iris got on my nerves a lot! I do enjoy this author and might read more from her! I do recommend Kulti thogh! That was great!
