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.

**This is the final book in the Corps Security series. This book is not suitable for younger readers. There is strong language, adult situations, and some violence.*

I love Maddox Locke!!!

I really loved this book and I really love Maddox Locke. He’s such a great person, and such an alpha male that it makes swoon.

Locke stars with him finding Emmy in Florida and where he finds her just makes you have to read the book. Chapter 1, is Emmy’s past, and how she grew up, and what she had to endure in her childhood. You don’t realize that she’s a tortured soul and it makes you see her in a different light. Chapter 2 is Maddox’s past, and how he lost his leg and what his childhood was like when he was younger. And let me tell you that when you find out, it makes you want to cry, cut a bitch, and hug Maddox for a long time.

I don’t know if you remember in “Cooper” when, Asher and Chelcie had a “family dinner” after her ordeal, and Emmy flashes on Maddox, well if you don’t then re-read the book :), but if you do, they mention the follow up to what happens, and it’s just so heartbreaking/felt that again, you get emotional and just want to hug them.

There is so much to say about this book, and I don’t want to give the whole thing away, but all I know is that I HIGHLY recommend reading this book, and even the series. You will fall in love with Maddox Locke and all the CS boys (Sway included), that you won’t regret it. (oh, btw…MINE!!! I claimed him). Maddox was such wonderful ending to the Corps Security series, and the very last chapter was such a great way to introduce Cohen Cage and Dani Reid’s story…it’s going to be interesting to say the least.

About Harper Sloan

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed ‘Estrogen Ocean’, much to her husbands chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero–the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn’t take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
