    1. Please see of my reviews at bookaddicthavenAlthough this was not the raunchy, offensive, biker romance that I had anticipated, I really liked Under Locke Unlike most MC romances, this story does not focus heavily around the debauchery of the clubhouse and the biker lifestyle There is a little danger and some club business, but it is in the background vs being the central focus of the story Under Locke is a very slow burn romance It did take some time for me to get into this story However, once [...]


    2. 4 stars Under Locke was another amazing read by the queen of slow burn romance, Mariana Zapata This was a little than a slow burn it was a bit of a forbidden romance, an enemies to lovers story, and a brother s friend story Yes A trifecta of awesomeness Iris Taylor s life has been anything but easy She s had blow after blow since she was young, but that s all in the past She s moving to Texas to start over With the help of her older half brother, Sonny, she has a place to stay and a job to help [...]


    3. HOLY crap Am I really the first person to review this book Well In case you were wondering, I got my money s worth on this book It was long, not too long, loved the characters.Iris was recommended to be a tattoo artist front desk lady by her half brother Sonny Sonny is friends with the owner of the tattoo shop, Dex Now they definitely don t have any immediate sexual tension Dex was an ass to her Both Iris and Dex are bad with new people Iris because she s just super shy, and Dex because he just [...]


    4. Mariana Zapata is an amazing storyteller First, I was captivated by Kulti, then fell madly in love with The Wall of Winnipeg, and now Under Locke has stolen my heart Dex is a douche to start, but Riss without even trying brings him to his knees and it was a thing of beauty to behold They re such a fantastic couple This story is definitely edgier than those others I mentioned, and it s the closest to just like Kristen Ashley I ve read.No doubt about itMs Zapata writes awesome characters whose liv [...]


    5. I really wanted to like Under Locke, by Mariana Zapata, because I like biker romances, and I read rave reviews about this author But it eventually turned into a hot mess for me.My biggest problem consisted of a horrendous heroine, paired up with a pretty great hero Told in h s first person narrative, the book goes to great length to portray H as a jerk that only the h can tame into being the good guy he is, underneath his gruff exterior But I did not buy it Seldom have I encountered a insuffera [...]


    6. I loved this Admittedly, it took me a couple of chapters to get into it, at first the writing seems a bit choppy and a cpl of times I had to go back a page or two to remind myself of a question a character had asked.However, once it settles and who was who, what connected them and the history of the characters made itself known, it just flowed and I started to really enjoy it.Iris Taylor has had a hard life She has had to move across country and move in with her half brother who is part of the M [...]


    7. 3.5 4stars It started out as thisAt some point, it turned into this Cue a decade later and the baby ended up like thisThere was nothing explosive in this book The story arc resembled a That s not necessarily a bad thing In lieu of a roller coaster ride, we had a slow burn I love it when attraction gradually evolves into love This book had the makings of something great 1 A well developed love story The plot was brimming with unresolved sexual tension 2 A cold asshole for the H just like the ones [...]


    8. Re read 6 11 174.5 stars I might be late for the Mariana Zapata bandwagon but I finally got here I wont do a full review as there are already many amazing ones out there If like me you haven t had a chance to read this fantastic author, I suggest you bump her books up your tbr list and pronto If you haven t heard of her please check her out she is totally worth it A master of the slow build romance Do give her a try While reading this, Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls kept playing in my head I don t kn [...]


    9. LOVED IT I loved how sweet and funny it was and most of all I loved how NON GRITTY it was I get that being in a MC is not all rainbows and unicorns, but I honestly do not need to read the brutal aspects of it hence why this book was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT for me Sure, there seemed to be elements of KA in this book, but heck, KA inspired lots of indie writers out there and I for one LOVE KA and her writing, so if I read it and it reminds me of KA AND its not a rip off and it wasn t at all the case he [...]


    10. I know Zapata books are famous for the slow burn romances I loved her other book Kulti which made me decide to read some of her other books Dex and Iris make a guest appearance in Kulti which made me select this as my next read as I really wanted to know about them.Even before I started with this one, I knew looking at some of the reviews this is not as good as Kulti and my verdict is the same It is nowhere near as good as Kulti It maybe unfair to compare it to another book even though they are [...]


    11. 4.5 STARSEver since reading the book that literally put me in the worst book slump ever, because it was so effing fantastic, I ve made it my mission to read everything MZ has or will ever write That book is Kulti I still get goose bumps when I see it It might seem irrational Maybe others who ve read it are scratching their heads, but to me, it was the gold standard Anywaysis was really, really good I loved it I m also glad I waited so long after finishing Kulti, because anything would have paled [...]


    12. Review written May 9, 20163.8 Stars Nice and fun, a tiny bit too longish , but all in all very goodYes it is strange but true, I went from listening to one MC Club m f Chaos 1 by KA directly to another one Even, yes even, if I m not even sure I like or can fully tolerate these MC club world s in my romances Well, we don t always do what best for us Or This time was it a pretty sweet and nice MC story by an author that already impressed me with her wonderful funny and lighthearted female football [...]


    13. If you hate women you will absolutely love this book Well since I m not masochistic it was a downright disgusting and painful read, but I really wanted to rate it so I barreled through Iris is the shy, insecure victim who, in her almost 25 years of life, have never had sex Why Why is it so important for the girl to always be a fucking virgin I don t know why it s pissing me off except that it sends the wrong message to girls That as soon as they have sex they re tainted and damaged goods or some [...]


    14. Babe, I ve handpicked everythin and everyone in here I know what I want and I get what I want, he breathed And I keep what s mine Fuck What the fucking fuck am I going to do with my fucking dull life now Why did it have to end Oh my Dex.I went 30 years without ever knowing you and now I can t handle even one minute away from you.I m fucking RUINED When I read my first book by this amazing author about 3 weeks ago I thought to myself Holy fuck This chick can fucking write The Wall of Winnipeg and [...]


    15. 3.5 5 stars You ve gotta be the best thing I never knew I wanted I just flew through this story I ve been fully captivated by this slow burning romance novel for the last few days, and now all I want to do is binge this author s other books Dex and Iris had an emotional journey full of humour, romance and friendship I absolutely loved the slow pace to their romance as I could become full enveloped in their story and watching their relationship grow an thrive Under Locke was a beautifully heartwa [...]


    16. 4 stars I d never been a big fan of that saying, Everything happens for a reason, but maybe, sometimes, every once in a while, things coalesced into a complex, intangible reason With tattoos and piercings and bad words and unfailing loyalty topped with a temper And in its own imperfect way, it couldn t have been any better.Iris Taylor is starting over in a new town She left behind haunting memories and heartaches back in Florida Her biker half brother, Sonny, is helping her get back on her feet [...]


    17. I m late on posting a rating for this book My family got sick and then passed it to me Once I was recovered my laptop cord broke When it rains it pours So, I m behind in reviews and blogging Since it s been awhile since I listened to it I ll make this quick The cover has a motorcycle on it and while this has some elements of a motorcycle romanceI wouldn t categorise it a hardcore Sons of Anarchy type of book If you like slow to burn romance then give this one a try I enjoyed listening to it STAN [...]


    18. 5 5 starsreread 02 07 17 10 10 17SO I reread this only a week after finishing it, I just couldn t get the characters out of my head and I didn t want to reread anything but this And I don t regret a thing, I loved it just as much the second time round, I relate hardcore to Iris and I just want a Dex for myself I highlighted some of my favourite passages this time around so I m just going to add them into the review.HOLY HELL I loved this book than I can say, I was up wayy too late finishing thi [...]

    20. 3 Unexpected Stars Let me start by saying that this is not your typical MC story, the characters in this book are of Motorcycle enthusiasts who are loyal to each other and wear leather cuts only when they hang out together No mayor use of curse words, no whoring around and getting wasted every single day, these guys all own different businesses and look after each other, and I enjoyed this fact than I thought I would, very refreshing Iris Taylor has had a difficult life after her mother and gr [...]


    21. 5 starsAnother one by Ms Zapata to add to my favorites shelf smile Also want to mention that I really enjoyed the narration audiobook by Callie Dalton I would definitely listen to from CD in future, as I loved her narration performance of Kulti as well ETA on 01 26 18Wrote this in one of my group threads so I m adding it here UL has a KA like feel, was a slow burn to some degree though definitely not to the degree of Kulti or The Wall of Winnipeg and Me and Locke can be a mean SOB at times with [...]


    22. 4 Locke Me starsI ve wanted to read a Mariana Zapata book for some time now Everyone loves her books and figure I should finally pop my cherry I picked Under Locke because it s an MC book and I love my MC men However, like it s referenced in many of the reviews This isn t your typical MC book There s no crazy cheating, steamy sexy scenes some but not a lot and it s very tame or even too much MC politics It s a very clean book I would even say the MC is kind of the background of the book, which i [...]


    23. 4 Locke me up starsI have to say that Mariana Zapata is the new author for me I will run to from now on I like her writing style, I like the different segments she masterfuly combines inside her story action, drama, emotions, humor, smut all layered with a certain dose of different and fresh and i think that is a special touch that each author needs to finds on their own and it s the IT factor that differentiates them in the crowds of writing talents and experts.about the book , a little bit lat [...]


    24. Okay, so here s my thought I started this book and flipped the eff out I loved it I love enemies to lovers and grumpy heroes I loved Ris She was great Sonny and Trip were fun, Slim and Blake were fun Just lots of fun Then our broody hero started to turn it around, because all alpha like, but in a super awesome way He called the heroine babe, just, ugh Everything I loved it It was yes a slow burn though not as slow as Winnipeg or Kulti , but still a lot slower than everything else on the market a [...]


    25. Writing I connect with Zapata s writing style I enjoy how she unfolds the story and invite the readers into her imaginary world.But I think she can be repetitive at times and she also has a tendency to go on too long Some scenes or internal thoughts could have been slashed in half Characters Dex is sort of part of an MC He s caring and kind, but it s hidden beneath his short temper Iris is sensitive and fragile There is a quiet strength that pops out when you least expect it.Storyline Iris is fo [...]


    26. 3.5 5 stars I d never been a big fan of that saying, Everything happens for a reason, but maybe, sometimes, every once in a while, things coalesced into a complex, intangible reason With tattoos and piercings and bad words and unfailing loyalty topped with a temper And in its own imperfect way, it couldn t have been any better Not my personal favorite from MZ I don t know I guess I m not as obsessed with the characters as I did with her other books Also, I didn t know that this is her second nov [...]


    27. Thanks to Quirky Omega for the recommendation 3.2 starsThis had a glimmer or whiff of Kristen Ashley s writing but toned down It is told in first person all from the heroine s pov and as I broken record say with this format, I missed getting an internal look into the hero The romance is kind of a slow burn and I enjoyed the growing taking place I will say, around the 70% mark, I started to feel like the story was running long There s some repetitiveness but I don t want to say the story is dragg [...]


    28. I thought Winnipeg was brilliant but this was even better.A slow burn, featuring a biker gang, an asshole boss, one of my favourite female characters ever and when we finally got there, the hottest, most erotic smut I ve read in a long time.And he s got a dirty mouth I cannot tell you how happy that makes me.I absolutely loved this one Highly recommended and on ku.


    29. Don t know if i should read this I have read some reviews Some I like in book and other are fuck to no.
