"Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine are just partner gold, and I cannot wait to see where they take the characters from here, but wherever it is, I hope it will be as touching and moving as these books have been."
~Musings of the Modern Belle
"Smart, funny, emotional, and supremely sexy, Locked is everything I love about this genre and I cannot wait for the final installment in the #PresLocke romance!"
~Sharon Slick Reads
Locked is just one of those books that takes you high, takes you low, and yet, somehow, manages to keep you smiling the whole damn time you're reading it.
"I'm a bit at a loss for words--the huge grin on my face after finishing Locked pretty much speaks for my feelings on this amazing book by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine."

Applause! Perfection! Oh My God!!!!! Truly out-did yourselves! It's the HONESTY between Ace & Dylan that drives this story for me- no secrets - dialogue between two people falling in love - despite odds - working things out & falling deeper in love with honesty & trust - #loveislove & I truly love these men! Won't giveaway title for next book as I don't want to spoil surprise! Thank you Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine for bringing these characters together!
“Because with you, I’ve found me.”
Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine together are deadly, deadly for your heart and your ovaries. They certainly go for the jugular in Locked and delivered a swoony read from start to finish. Despite the highs and lows in this book I had a permanent grin, I giggled, I swooned, I laughed but most of all I loved and loved hard.
Sometimes though even the closest couples have a little miscommunication…
“Are you trying to say you want me to knock you up? Because, Dylan, I have to tell you, I have some pretty powerful boys at work, but no amount of horny goat weed is gonna make that happen.”
Locked continues on from Aced with the whistle well and truly blown on Ace and Dylan’s relationship. Ace is naturally worried about the implications and repercussions this will have on his relationship with Dylan insofar as will Dylan will be able to cope with the notoriety, the paparazzi and untruths that the media will now frenzy upon. Dylan though steps up to the plate in more ways than one as it seems that Ace has more to worry about than him.
“You, Dylan Prescott, are worth every scandalous thing that’s about to be written…”
Dylan takes everything in his stride despite the pressure he now finds himself under, the love he has for Ace is the one anchor he needs to keep himself tethered to reality. Having been outed as the other half to Ace Locke, Dylan’s career is propelled into the stratosphere yet Dylan cannot help but feel that these opportunities are only coming because of Ace and if that’s the case, he doesn’t want them.
Ace’s career is on the opposite path, it seems Hollywood cannot palate a gay action hero and his contracts are tumbling away day by day. Ace knew it would be bad but he just didn’t realise how bad it could get. Like Dylan though, all Ace needs is his better half and it is these situations they find themselves in that really lead to some extremely tender moments and really reiterates just how much in love these two really are.
Between an intense love, homophobic movie makers, a trip to the beach, paparazzi and a piece of dirt that comes back to haunt them, this book has everything and more. So many highs and lows, fantastic dialogue and a story that will have you frantically turning pages just so that you can eat up every word as quickly as possible. A relationship that is so damn swoon worthy that you cannot help but will these two along to the happily ever after they so richly deserve. There are so many scenes I could pin point but I don’t want to spoil anything but what I will say is that the ending was absolute PERFECTION. It has been a long time since I have cried happy tears, but such is my intense character connection to these two men that those tear ducts never stood a chance.
“Tonight, you’re mine. Your frustration…Your orgasm. Your pleasure. And your shouts of need…Tonight, all of it is mine, Dylan”
So the question on everyone’s tongues…is this the end of #PresLocke? NO!!! We get more!! And judging by that ending I am literally on the edge of my seat shouting gimme, gimme, gimme. This was not a cliff hanger ending by any means, some may say cheesy, but I say very Hollywood, but an ending that will just leave you wanting more. Just more of everything #PresLocke.
“We came holding one another. Rocking the other through the storm and emerging on the other side, stronger for the journey.”
This book picks up exactly where the first book left off, so if you haven't read that book, stop reading this review right now because there will be spoilers from the first story.
So, in this book, Ace and Dylan are still dealing with the backlash from the expose about their relationship. Ace is losing jobs right and left, but the notoriety has actually done some great things for Dylan's modeling. On top of all the mental strife that is causing, now they are also having to deal with the crazy intrusive paparazzi every time they turn around. Things are a little stressful which is hard on any relationship, much less one as new as theirs is.
The one thing that I truly loved about all the places that this story went (and it did go all over the place...including those awful scenes with Dylan's mother)...I loved that Ace never ONCE faltered in his commitment to Dylan. That makes him an incredible hero...because this relationship is ruining everything for him, but he still refuses to even consider giving Dylan up. I LOVED THAT SO, SO MUCH!
That's what makes these stories so good...truly Dylan and Ace are perfect together (that and the omg, hotter than hot visuals the authors paint of the two guys...happy sigh).
I just love this series and am already listening to the third and final book in the series.
The first part of the book came right back to the hotel room Ace had taken Dylan to for a weekend of pleasure, and the story took on a life of its own. I thought the problems Ace and Dylan had before in ‘Aced’ were terrible, this book brings into the crazy world of movies and what happens when you’re a famous action movie star that comes out of the closet and faces the consequence.
Ella writes twist and turns of events throughout the book that would have shattered most couples, but Ace and Dylan’s relationship meant more than a career. The emotions Dylan and Ace went through, I went through, and many times the story brought me to tears of sadness and happiness.
This is must read book, but you really need to read ‘Aced’ first or ‘Locked’ would make no sense. I love this couple, their magnetism pulls you in and you lost in their world. I can’t say enough good things this book deserves.

To put this simply, Ace and Dylan are left dealing with the fall out of the paparazzi invading on their privacy and putting their pictures out in the public. Professionally and personally they have to deal with their relationship being under scrutiny while their relationship also tries to move forward.
“I’m not sure about any of this. But I am sure about you. I want you, Ace. And you come with all of this.”
Now onto my FEELS about this book! Because I feel like I'm going to BURST with the happiness this book left me feeling! I honestly can't remember ever feeling this happy after finishing a book. Pure bliss.
I loved this book so much. Dylan and Ace slayed me from the start. I loved them in book one but they owned me in this one. Brooke and Ella with Ace and Dylan reminded me WHY I love romance. The love, the passion, seeing it and FEELING it all. There's just something about the love between Dylan and Ace that melted my heart and made me fall in love with love, again. Reminded me why I adore this genre. Their friendship, their banter and their compassion, determination and love for one another. I just plain and simple fell completely in love with these guys and their relationship.
“And now you’re mine.”
“All f- - ing yours.”
Sigh. I could go on and on...
I have to mention the cameo from Jordan and Derek and that scene on the beach with family and friends and that it was absolutely one of my fave scenes in the book and it made me miss Posh and He-man! I'd totally be all for another book from those two! Just saying.
I also adore Dylan's family. Adore them completely. Can they adopt me please?
And the many scenes between Dylan and Ace that set my Kindle on fire!! Dangggg.
“...Hands on the banister, Dylan, I’m about to make your knees give the f- out.”
This book was pure joy! Even through the difficult times and chaos and characters that you want to throttle and the things that hurt, it was pure joy. Dylan and Ace are everything. And honestly, probably my favorite couple from these authors combined. And that's a BIG statement to make. But I seriously love them and haven't loved a couple like these two in so long. So if Brooke and Ella could write together forever that'd be great thank you very much.
There was chaos in this book but it was all so worth it. There was much more depth as we got to learn much more about these guys and went outside of their relationship when it came to pasts and meeting family. There were times I was hurting for both Ace and Dylan and wanting to wrap them up and protect them from it all, I got seriously angry for them but most of all I was happy for them. I loved falling in love with them. Brooke and Ella are perfection writing together. Once again they brought humor, heat (DAMN, Did they ever), and they just brought a beautiful story filled with so much love, friendship and happiness. That ending was EVERYTHING. I have never squealed like that after finishing a book, I'm a little embarrassed actually at how much I squealed lol! But man, was it so good! It's gonna be so hard to say goodbye to this amazing couple and their relationship but I can't wait for the conclusion and have no doubt that Brooke and Ella are going to do it amazingly.
I fell in love with these Dylan and ace all over again this next chapter of there story was hot,sexy and a intense connection which you can feel on every page
I laughed so much and also I cried a little at locked it is such a amazing story
Dylan and ace had such a intense emotional connection sometimes it brought tears to my eyes
I love Dylan's family we could all do with a Ziggy,sunshine and Lennon in our life's I loved them so much to
Locked had me on the edge of my seat all the way through the story I couldn't put it down
Thank you Ella frank and Brooke Blaine for another amazing installment of the preslocke series can't wait to see what's next
Would definitely recommend.
