Wow what a story! This is Cat Porter’s debut novel and I loved Lock & Key. This book brought out big fat sloppy alligator tears. Lock & Key is interwoven with memories of the past and the present. Did I say I cried Big sloppy Alligator tears? There are definitely some emotional parts to this book but, it isn’t a tear jerker book. It just has some very emotional parts.
If you knew me you would know how much I usually avoid books that brings out such emotions. I hate crying. I didn’t know that this book would make me cry when I first started reading it but when a book does bring out those emotions it means that it is a really good book. I am looking forward to reading more from Cat Porter.
I suppose some of us have to get really dirty before we can become truly clean.
I was allegedly South Dakota’s most famous Old Lady.
Sixteen years ago I had survived my Old Man’s murder.
Never again will I surrender my heart.
Never again will I sacrifice to the Club.
But that all changed in one night.
I came home and crashed into him,
and my past and present blew up in my face.
Both of us lonely, running on empty, and unwilling to admit it.
Now I feel things I’d forgotten about, want things I’d cut out of my insides.
Love not only stings when you lose it, when it’s ripped away,
When it first sinks its teeth into you, it can cut just as raw and sting just as deep.
I’d forgotten that.
Who holds the keys to betrayal? To suspicion? To trust?
To brotherhood? To family?
To redemption and a bleeding heart?
Right now, I just might.
Warning: This work of fiction contains graphic language, sex, and material some readers may find objectionable.
