"Cat Porter NAILED it. This was a great, great book. So well written" - Lorelei James, New York Times & USA Today best-selling author

"I love this series! Cat Porter is a massively gifted writer! I highly recommend." - bestselling author Kennedy Ryan

My bitter past ruled my life. I was running on empty and didn't give a damn.
Until now.

Sixteen years ago I barely survived my old man's murder, and I promised myself that never again would I surrender my heart. I ran away from our hometown in South Dakota and never looked back. I didn't want love, I didn't want redemption. I didn't want a second chance. I didn't want anything.
I didn't deserve anything.

But that all changed in one night.

Forced to return home, I crashed into Lock, a sexy, brooding stranger. I indulged. No risk. No harm.
Wrong. Wrong. Oh, so wrong.
He was no stranger. And the past and present blew up in both our faces.

Caught in the crossfire of two bike clubs' rivalry, our one night of hot and delicious quickly turns cold and ugly. Forced to strike a bargain, I'm a pawn in a dangerous and deadly game. Secrets, lies...ah, but I'm good at those.

So why does it hurt so much?

Because now I feel things I'd forgotten about, want things I thought I'd cut out of my insides. I see it in Lock's haunted eyes, feel it in his touch—that same hurt, that same want.

Love not only stings when you lose it, when it's ripped away, but when it first sinks its teeth into you, it can cut just as raw and sting just as deep.
Now that sting won't stop, and I don't want it to.
But the game just got real dirty, and Lock and I are on opposite sides. Will we come out alive? And even if we do, what will be left of our mangled souls?

Once I had nothing.
Suddenly, I have so damn much to lose.

The Lock & Key series is a complete 4 book motorcycle club romance saga. This romantic suspense / women's fiction novel contains adult language, sex, violence and is intended for mature audiences only.

About the Author

CAT PORTER was born and raised in New York City, but also spent a few years in Texas and Europe along the way, which made her as wanderlusty as her parents. As an introverted, only child, she had very big, but very secret dreams for herself. She graduated from Vassar College, was a struggling actress, an art gallery girl, special events planner, freelance writer, restaurant hostess, and had all sorts of other crazy jobs all hours of the day and night to help make those dreams come true. She has two children’s books traditionally published under her maiden name. ?

She now lives on a beach outside of Athens, Greece with her husband, three children, and a huge Cane Corso, freaks out regularly, still daydreams way too much, and now truly doesn’t give AF. She is addicted to reading, classic films, cafes on the beach, Greek islands, Instagram, Pearl Jam and U2, her husband’s homemade red wine, dark chocolate, and reallllllly good coffee. Writing has always kept her somewhat sane, extremely happy, and a productive member of society.

Wow. I love a good kinda gritty but not too gritty biker book but I'm not usually a fan of MC books. They're just too gritty for me but I loved this one. It was everything I dislike in a MC story but written in a way that made me love it. I truly enjoyed this author and look forward to reading more by her.

I love MC Romance books, and have read tons of them, so it is difficult to find something new and different that still has the feel of a good MC Romance. Lock & Key was a nice surprise. I loved this story. It captured my attention from the first page, and it never disappointed. I highly recommend it. Great character development and great story. My only criticism is the cover. Not very inviting. But get past it, because this book is worth it.

This book is awesome and wasn't the typical biker romance. Had several twist within the story and was not the typical romance. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I didn't like that story kept switching from present day to flashbacks of past events. I did not count it against in my rating, but it was disappointing the other books in the series was not available on my nook to purchase.

Had lots of layers. A real kind of story not the basic romance that seems to be abundant.

In Lock & Key, Grace has been running for 15 years from a tragedy that took place and took away her hopes and dreams.  She and Lock meet and have a one night stand.  When Grace returns to the One Eyed Jacks asking for help for her dying sister, she discovers that Lock is a member.  Lock and Grace try to forge a relationship.  Jump, the Prez, has other ideas and forces Grace to do and be around some pretty uncomfortable things so that he can keep an eye on her and also find out information to protect the club.  I liked the past and present scenarios because they gave a glimpse at why Grace was the way she was.  Lock finally realizes that they have forced Grace to do too much for the club and has a hard time getting her to acknowledge him.  There were some twists in the plot that kept you guessing, mainly what what Viz had on her.   Overall a good read and a decent MC book.  Liked the epilogue a lot.

What a pleasant surprise!  This book had everything you could want in a get-away book.  The characters were strong, the story engrossing and a HEA...what more could you possibly want?  I loved the past-present storyline.  It wasn't another teenage love story, it was a mature couple finding their way.  If you like MC books this one is for you...you will love it!  I can't wait for more from Cat Porter.

Finding true love just once in a lifetime is hard enough, but to be lucky to find it twice in a lifetime? Well hell, hold on to that love like you need air to breathe because finding a third time will be zero to nil! That's basically what this book is about, throw in the MC, rivalry clubs, drugs, strippers, runs, charity events, death and you have one crazy ass adventurous book! Most people will probably complain about the way the author kept going from past to present, but those glimpses into the past are essential to the story, we need that background information to piece everything together and the author does so very nicely, plus the past recollections don't take up much of the book, its just bits here and there. It all comes together at the end! Overall a very enjoyable read, interesting and well developed characters, I hope to see more of this author in the future. SR
