On the Flap
Darkness is the only thing I see. Ever since the day my life changed. The day that everything and everyone I held close to me ceased to exist. The day I lost it all and the demons of my past consumed my every waking moment.
I tried to keep others at arm’s length. Tried not to let my darkness taint them. Ruin them. Harm them. And whether I want to admit it or not, as much as I wish I could keep them locked out, they refuse to leave. Refuse to let me suffer alone.
If I hadn’t been so focused on keeping those demons from flying free, I wouldn’t have missed how one perfect angel was able to sneak her way under my skin—refusing to let go. Making me want things I don’t deserve.
She consumes me. Her beauty knows no end. The love she promises tempts me every time she’s near. But that pure heart that makes her MY Emmy is the one thing I’m convinced I’ll destroy if I ever let her close.
I’m a broken man. A broken man with too much darkness in his soul to ever let her light shine upon me. But even that doesn’t stop me from craving her with every single breath in my body.
Thank you Harper Sloan for such a great read! I'll be honest this is the first book I have read in the Corps Security series. I have heard from several people how great this series is but sadly never got the chance to read them. When the opportunity to review this book came along I grabbed at it. Even without reading all the rest of the books, I was able to follow the storyline without feeling l like I was missing part of a bigger story. The times I did feel like that, it was more a feeling of intrigue than anything.
Locke and Emmy’s journey to happiness was a long one. How two people can survive such atrocities at the hands of their own family amazed me. I wanted to reach into the pages of this book and tear apart those characters that brutalized them. Locke may have survived physically, but his emotional scars left him a shell of a man. He truly believed he was unworthy of any kind of love or forgiveness. Emmy, on the other hand, had survived physically and emotionally. Her sass and determination had her coming out of her abusive past a stronger person. She was the sense of true strength in their relationship. She was more than willing to lend Locke strength when he felt weak. Locke was the perfect match for her since he was the only one who could really handle all that sass she so freely threw around.
Let's not forget to talk about the hot love scenes. Locke's dialogue alone had me fanning myself. He is definitely an alpha in a class all by himself.
Loved them and this book. Thank you again, Harper.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
