I suppose some of us have to get really dirty before we can become truly clean.
I was allegedly South Dakota’s most famous old lady.
Sixteen years ago I survived my old man’s murder
Never again will I surrender my heart.
Never again will I sacrifice to the Club.
But that all changed in one night.
I came home and crashed into him,
and my past and present blew up in my face.
Both of us lonely, running on empty, and unwilling to admit it.
Now I feel things I’d forgotten about, want things I’d cut out of my insides.
Love not only stings when you lose it, when it’s ripped away from you.
When it first sinks its teeth in you, it can cut just as raw and sting just as deep.
I’d forgotten that.
Who holds the keys to betrayal? To suspicion? To trust?
To brotherhood? To family?
To redemption and a bleeding heart?
Right now, I just might

Lock & Key by Cat Porter is the first book in her One-Eyed Jacks MC series and is a stand alone. I can tell you that it is a MUST read. I did not know what to expect since this is a first novel but OMG is it good. This book will stay with me a super long time. I love MC books but this one was so different that I just could not get enough.
I loved everything about this book. LOCK & KEY was plot and character driven. It is about First Love, Lost Love, Last Loves, Family love, and Club Love. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed it.
First of all, the characters in LOCK & Key are not young. They are in their late 30s; early 40s, with baggage and both having a life that can get in their future’s way. Grace, aka Little Sister and Miller, aka Lock, are strong individuals with a past that interconnects with common bonds from the club and personal relationships with family. However, Porter also intertwined the past and Grace’s first love and the loss of that love as the story unfolds as to why Grace has come back.
Just fabulous is all I can say. No cliffhangers and a HEA which is always nice and appreciated. Cat Porter is an author to put on your must read list.
LOCK & KEY receives 5 out of 5 Platypires
Texas Hugs and Happy Reading!!!
