***RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW*** Damaged Locke by Victoria Ashley & Jenika Snow

Aston Locke
Whispers of the Locke brothers fill the town, facts and reality twisted to fit what these motherfuckers believe they know about us.
That we’re sadistic bastards, incapable of any real emotions or fear.
Maybe they’re not wrong about that.
That is, until I set my sights on Kadence King, getting just as drawn to her as I am the darkness. It’s the first time I’ve felt anything in a long time.
But would she really be scared knowing the depth, the lengths I go with my brothers to make any fucker who crosses us pay?
I need a woman who can accept me for who I am.
For what I am.
I’m hoping like hell it’s her, because I want nothing more than to claim her as mine…

Kadence King
I know Aston’s dangerous, know people fear him. But I want him. I’m drawn to him, just as he’s drawn to the darkness.
I should be afraid of him, should turn the other way, but I can’t. I’ve gone mad and let him in my room, in my life, allowing him to consume me.
He possesses me, dominates me. Aston Locke shows me what it means to want to be claimed by him and only him.
And when he tells me I’M HIS, I have no doubt that’s the truth.
Because in the end it’s what I want too.
No matter how dangerous he is…

I’m crowding her. She’s nervous because of it, maybe even second-guessing letting me into her room.

I inhale. Fuck, she smells good, really damn good.

“I’m Aston Locke, a mean motherfucker that you just let all up in your space.” I lower my gaze to her throat, see her swallow, watch the slight curve move up and down. “Tell me your name,” I demand with a growl.

I could have said it a little nicer, tried to pretend and be sweet, gentle. But to hell with it; I’m not going to pretend to be someone I’m not.

“Kadence.” Her voice is soft and so damn innocent. “Kadence King.”

Kadence King.

God, how I want to defile her, make her see what all the hype is about concerning my brothers and me. I can imagine her naked, spread out for me, willing to do whatever the fuck I say. And she would submit to me, let me leave my marks on her, pretty purple and blue fingerprints that showed my ownership.

“What have you heard about the Lockes?” I want to hear her speak, want to know what she knows. Hell, I want to be pressed right up against her, her small body so soft where mine is hard.

I want to breathe the same air as her.

I want to fucking own her.

What the hell?

She swallows again, her breathing hard, fast.

She’s nervous.

I lower my gaze to her chest, see the way her tits press against the stretchy material of her shirt. Her nipples are hard, and my fingers itch to touch them.

I might be a dangerous bastard, a violent fucker, but I don’t touch a girl without her wanting me to. I’ll wait until Kadence begs me, asks me to push my dick deep inside her, making her mine.

“I heard you guys aren’t to be messed with.” Her voice is low, really damn low. “I heard you keep to yourself, aren’t social, and if someone crosses you guys…” She trails off, and I lift my brow, wanting more. “That you take care of it in the only way you know how.”

“The only way we know how?”

She nods and licks her lips. “With guns and bats, hammers, or whatever else you can find to make it bloody.”

I chuckle low. That’s about right.

“And you thought it was a good idea to let one of us in your room, this close to you?”

She shrugs, and I see something shift over her face. She’s trying to be strong.


“Maybe not, but too late now.”


I have NEVER.... NEVER!!!! EVERRR!!!! Wanted to be grabbed round the throat so much in my whole life!!! I mean ya know just... shiiiizzzzzzlllleeeeeee i think I'd let Aston do what the hell he wanted to me!! but that?!?!?! Jeeze i think i spent most of the sexy times de-steaming my glasses i mean... DAMN!!! That man!!!! Those lips that were made for biting!!! YES!!!!! nibble nibble tug tug yum yummy yum!!!!

Brand new series!!!!

I love me some Victoria Ashley boy does that woman know how to get the heat hitting super nova!!!! But i had never read Jenika so i was interested to see what this threw up!

It's kinda dark... i love dark!!! Based on three brothers Aston, Sterling and Ace. The whole town is scared of them. Wherever they are there's trouble. But all is not as it seems. The brothers tend to stick to themselves only venturing out when they need to.

On one occasion Aston see's Kadence watching him. He can't take his eyes off her.

Kadence is intrigued by Aston. Her best friend has warned her away from the Locke's but something draws her to him. She knows what it's like being on the outside and she wants to find out what their secrets are.

This is a short story but packed full!!! I'm really excited for this series!!

I loved Kadence. I loved how she knew what she wanted and although afraid she did it anyway. Aston wasn't sweet n soft he went in hard and fast and to most that would be scary especially knowing his reputation but she knew there was something more there and pushed through the fear to embrace it!.

Aston wellllll i just found a great big wonderful fantasy right there!!! I'm actually stalking the cover model a little.. ok well maybe a lot... lol That vision though.....Aston's hard and rough... yes wink wink* HARD and ROUGH! I *F word* loved him!!! OMG Slam me up a door and let me bite his lip!!! siggghhhhh***

The chemistry between them is off the Richter scale!!! They both claim each other. Obviously Aston is more Alpha about it but Kadence claims him too!

The supporting cast of his brothers has me biting my nails in anticipation of their books!!! I love their relationship. Typical brothers roughing each other up and joking around made me smile even though they've been through a rubbish time they have each other.

It feels like they each have a different side to the same story and i can't wait to get the full picture.

I also really liked her best friend Melissa. Please let her catch a Locke!!! She needs loosening up a little!!

The writing and pace was perfect. I picked it up... didn't put it down!! I think the length was just right. No over dramatizing. No pointless chatting and plot filling. Straight in BOOM! Hammers, Knives and PadLOCKE's!!

Highly recommend to all!!! Waiting, waiting, waiting for book 2!!! Now... off to find Jenika books!!
