“ACE LOCKE JETS OFF TO SIN CITY WITH MYSTERY MAN”

Sorry, ladies—and fellas—Hollywood’s hottest action star, Ace Locke, is officially off the market!

The man on Locke’s arm has been identified as Dylan Prescott, the sexy new “it” model currently featured in the latest Calvin Klein ads. Sources tell TNZ the men met on the set of Locke’s upcoming action film Insurrection 2, and that “they only have eyes for each other.” 
This is the first public gay relationship for Locke, who came out a year ago, and there has been much speculation on who would finally be the one to catch his eye.

According to multiple eyewitnesses, Locke whisked Prescott away on his private jet for a romantic weekend at Syn, the most exclusive hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. After pictures recently surfaced of the new couple, affectionately named PresLocke, it appears from the possessive way Locke keeps his new beau close that things are heating up.

The world is watching #PresLocke, and we’ll be sure to keep you up to date on this budding relationship!

Ace and Dylan’s story continues in Book Two of the Bestselling PresLocke Series.

REVIEW

★★★★★

DAMN, DAMN, DAMN!!! Trying to stay #LipLocked tight with so many emotions and feelings for Locked. As soon as I started reading, the adrenaline started pumping, a rapid beat in my pulse, from where I’d left it at the end of Aced.

I was so proud of both Ace and Dylan as they made their decision, as they walked hand in hand, head held high, with imaginary fingers in the air saluting any naysayers that had gathered in swarms. My nerves were tangled and twisted and I swear I had sweat beads forming on my forehead as they made their way through the lobby. I wanted to be there badly on the other end to hug them for a job well done and I actually exhaled loudly as the car drove away.

Whewww! That is the power of excellent writing.

There isn’t much I can add to this that others haven’t already said other than to reemphasize that #PresLocke is a #MustRead series. I couldn’t really put my finger on what was so different about this series compared to others that I adore and then it came to me in the early hours in bed.

This is a romance! A real, honest to goodness, romance. From infatuation to flirting, to testing the waters, laying the groundwork, becoming friends, real friend, best friends to the one person you know without a doubt you can trust above any other and one day without warning you realize that this is the one.

They have their troubles, they have lots of trouble, but the difference here, they solve them together. It’s sexy, unbelievably sexy, sinful, and had me swooning like a lovesick fool. “Stop being so damn polite when we both know you’re dying to be anything but.” – Dylan.  I had a smile plastered across my face through most of the book and I caught myself several times looking around to see if anyone was watching me, LOL.

My heart was so full of happy and it was because of Ace and Dylan and their exuberance they had for each other and it spilled over onto the pages and right into my heart.

Dylan became an anchor for Ace, his rock, that kept him steady, centered, and grounded, and they never veered from that. “Because with you, I’ve found me.” -Ace

#LipLocked with what I want to say because there were parts that were like a punch to the gut, scenes that took my breath away, scenes that made me feel like a teenager in love again for the first time, and times that my heart was so full that I thought it would burst with the love that was evolving within these pages.

Locked should in no way be read before Aced because it would be a travesty to not get the full exposure of these two magnetic, exuberant, full of life, men who grow and find themselves and each other under the watchful and sometimes negative eye of the public, but they don’t let that stand in their way of what is turning out to be the best thing that has ever happened to them.

Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine write lyrical prose that takes the reader on a journey of ebbs and flows giving us an inside look at their characters, in this case, Ace and Dylan. We see the real person(s) behind the public persona. Ace and Dylan learn to love themselves, to dig deeper, have faith in their dreams and press on in the fear of uncertainty.

As they acknowledge certain feelings, give them voice and acceptance to feel the ugly, scary stuff and darkness, it opens a new light and window and even invites laughter, lots of laughter. And isn’t that the medicine for the soul. A highly recommended read that any contemporary romance lover should gobble up and devour.  A definite 5 stars.
