Locked, Loaded, & Lying
Blurb (from Goodreads):
He might be innocent.
Or he might be very, very guilty...

Olympic skier Lock Roane was on top of the world: smashing world records, collecting medals, and basking in the love of a nation and his beautiful heiress girlfriend. It all comes crashing down after Lock discovers his girlfriend had an affair - then wakes from a drunken bender to find himself covered in her blood. Disgraced and dethroned, Lock awaits his murder trial with dread, not knowing if his girlfriend died at his own hands.

Journalist Jordan Sinclair is out of options. To satisfy her blackmailer, she must get the inside scoop (and its cash reward) on Lock Roane. An attraction to the arrogant athlete was not part of the plan. Neither is trying to find out what really happened that night. Now Jordan risks everything - including her life - to help the man she's falling for. A man who just might be a cold-blooded killer...

“Call Parker and inform him I saved the life of a reporter who’s now bulldozed her way deep into my case?” He rubbed his beard. “Christ, this day just keeps getting better.”

This was an adult romantic suspense story.

Jordan was quite a pushy girl, and I couldn’t quite believe the lengths she went to for a story! I felt quite sorry for Lock; wrongly accused of a murder that he didn’t commit, and then forced to hide out in the middle of nowhere for months to avoid being sent to jail!

“USSA ordered me to disappear from public, and I’ve done it for ten goddamn months.”

The storyline in this was about finding the real murderer, and the question of what it really Lock, or was it someone else?
There was some romance and a sex scene, but it all seemed to happen way too quickly for me, and I felt like the sex scene came totally out of the blue.

“She sighed blissfully into his mouth, stroking his satin-smooth cheeks, and burying her fingers in his thick, still-damp hair.”

The ending to this was okay, and I was happy that things worked out okay in the end.

6 out of 10
