Review: The Lock (Dark Path #3) by K.T. Grant
The Lock (Dark Path Series #3) - KT Grant

In The Lock, we are in the third book in the Dark Path series. For those of you not familiar with the series, we told the story of the main couple is Max and Ericka. Max is the owner of the BDSM club The Gate along with Catherine. Erica has come a long way since book one. Her and Max are looking to get married. They even talking about going to Vegas to elope.

 

However, Max's brother, Daniel, gets into a scandal, so they make an unexpected trip to LA to visit him. While there, Max has a run-in with his old nemesis, Abraham, who is blackmailing his brother. Abraham is also marrying, Page, who is Chris' sister. Chris is Ericka's ex from the first book. Page is also Max's ex and lastly, she is crazy.

 

Then there's Catherine. Catherine is trying to figure out what she wants in her life. Does she want to stay with her overbearing Master? Or does she want to stay with Bryan. There are few twists that come up here that I won't spoil.

 

I know reading all of this it sounds chaotic, but it is really well written. The Lock kept me glued to my seat, turning pages. It has quite the climatic ending to the story that leaves you wanting more. As per the first two books in the series, the author leaves things with a cliffhanger. That is my biggest complaint about this series. I'm not a fan of cliffhangers and there has been one at the end of each book. If you like BDSM erotica, this is a great series with well developed characters and a wonderful story to go along with it.

The dark path continues for Erika and Max as secrets unfold and threaten to destroy all they hold dear…

 

Erika Walsh’s every dream has come true. She’s received both critical and public acclaim for her best-selling erotic romance, and has chosen the magnetic millionaire and BDSM club owner Maxwell Crawford as the keeper of her heart. Although, her former crush Chris Milton still refuses to accept her decision. As she plans her wedding to Max, she’s confronted with his past and the many secrets he’s kept under lock and key –for good reason.

 

When Max’s older brother, Daniel, a big Hollywood producer falls ill, Erika and Max rush to Los Angeles to help him recover. Max is shocked to find Daniel has become the victim of a blackmailer who seeks revenge against the brothers. Max must confront the loathsome Abraham Rovner, a former classmate from high school, who has never forgiven him for breaking off their relationship.

 

Abraham brings out Max’s lurking deviant nature, which sends him to a dark place in his mind. Erika must find the strength to help her lover purge his demons, even though it may come at a major cost for them both.

 

Exclusive taste of what's inside The Lock... (naughty excerpt):

 

A work of art stood in the shower, surrounded by steam.

 

Water droplets dripped off Max’s ass. Rivulets of wet heat caught on the springy hairs of his thighs and around his knees, coasting down his calves, and making a puddle under his feet and around his toes. Erika licked her lips. She had worshipped every part of his body, including his toes. No matter how many times Maxwell Crawford pounded inside her, she craved more.

 

Her stomach growled. She’d made the mistake of not eating anything after yoga class because she’d been running late. She blamed Max for her tardiness. He’d kept her in bed the entire day, making love to her for hours, which had started the second the sun rose. She woke to find his face in between her legs and her arms bound and cuffed to the headboard. The evil bastard had gone down on her, licking her to the point where she almost orgasmed, but then she held off as long as she could until she yelled, “I love you” at the top of her lungs—his retaliation because she’d forgotten to say it to him before she fell asleep last night.

 

But what a punishment to wake to.

 

Her hunger pains disappeared, and she bent to untie her sneaker. The twinge in her thighs and legs seared her muscles from her bed play with Max. He eventually gave her mercy when she left him for her yoga class. She explained her need to meditate and how the stretching positions helped her keep up with his ferocious sexual appetite. After her class, she spent time in the sauna so she would be in the right frame of mind tonight for their engagement party with over two-hundred guests attending.

 

Straightening, she winced, more from nerves about tonight than her post-sex aches. Max faced her from the opposite side of the frosted shower stall glass. He slicked back his hair and ran his palm down his face and chest, going lower until he grasped his shaft, his lovely tool that always made her damp.

 

A fluttering filled her stomach, which was always the case when she caught him staring at her with his golden sex eyes that promised so many naughty things. He opened the door halfway, letting steam rise to the ceiling.

 

“Join me, precious.” An order, not a request from her fiancé.

 

“What if I already showered at the gym?” She unzipped her hoodie, dropping it on the floor, along with her socks and sneakers.

 

“I’m going to fuck you before we go to the party. So decide…in this shower or in the car on the ride there.” His tone brokered no argument.

 

She took off the rest of her clothes. Naked and without any embarrassment, she joined her lover. Taking her hand, he guided her into the stall.

 

“You’d really wait to fuck me in the car?” She wrapped her arms around his shoulders.

 

“I’d probably fuck you after my shower and again in the bedroom.” He claimed her mouth in a kiss.

 

Sucking down on his bottom lip, she tugged. “Hmm, you didn’t even correct me using ‘fuck’. You must be too horny.”

 

She yelped when he smacked her ass cheek. “There are no rules in my shower, Mrs. Crawford.”

 

She circled the bruise on his shoulder where she bit him too hard in a moment of passion. “I’m not Mrs. Crawford yet.”

 

“In my heart and mind, you already are.” He took her mouth in a firm kiss, making her knees wobble and her pussy clench.

 

She dueled her tongue with his, a fevered dance in her mouth that caused an intense throbbing all over. She’d never felt this way with any man, only Max, who came into her life when she had least expected it.

 

He broke off the kiss, swiping his thumbs over her damp cheeks. He soaked her in, while she did the same, no longer shy. Approval shined in his gaze.

 

“I love you like this.” He nipped her chin. “Naked in my arms, wet, and vulnerable.”

 

“Why do you like me vulnerable?” She ran her fingers along his fur-lined chest, finding his nipple, taut and ready for her to lick if she so chose. “So you can have your wicked way with me?”

 

He laughed, a loud echo in the small enclosure. He grabbed her ass and boosted her up until she stood on her toes. She moved in for a kiss, and he dug his fingers in deep, near the crack of her ass. His thumb slipped down, just enough to tickle the edge of her feminine lips. The underside of her clitoris tightened in want.

 

“We don’t have time to play,” she gasped, spreading her legs to allow him more access to her front.

 

“Lock your legs around my waist.” He lifted her higher, and she obeyed. Her reward—his cock nestled at her opening. He grunted and pressed her against the tiled wall.

 

He set his forehead to hers, his gaze smoldering and scorching. “Take me and put me inside you.”

 

She wiggled, a bit uncomfortable against the tiles. Part of their early morning bed play had involved a new flogger Max had used on her for the first time. The marks had vanished, but the remnants of the lashing and sting of the strap lingered. If she told Max how awkward the position felt, he would stop any or all amorous activities right then and there, leaving them both unfulfilled. She didn’t want find herself on her back or on her knees while he fucked her in the car on the way to their party. She had become more adventurous with him, but she didn’t want to appear in front of hundreds of people looking like she had been fucked within an inch of her life.

 

“Erika, what’s wrong?” He shifted away, concern etched on his face.

 

She took his dick, setting it within her slick folds. He sighed and rested his mouth on hers, breathing deeply. With flicks of her tongue, she tasted his mouth and the underside of his bottom lip. “I’m thinking off all the things you did to me this morning.”

 

“You mean all the things we did together.” He joined his hand to hers, guiding his cock deep inside her.

 

She melted. Not just because he entered her slowly, stretching her just the right way to accommodate his generous size and large girth, but because they were a team, a true partnership. The power play Max once tried to install in their relationship, with him the Dominant and her the submissive, were over. If he gave, she took, and vice versa. The moment she accepted his marriage proposal, the dynamics between them changed.

 

They ruled each other equally, an ownership both sanctioned and embraced. One that would never break.

A chance encounter between a successful author and a billionaire owner of an underground BDSM club, leads to the most pivotal relationship of their lives…

 

Synopsis: Erika Walsh has carried a torch for Christopher Milton, heir to her father’s publishing empire for years. After one steamy make out session she begins to wonder if it might develop into something more. But when M. L. Crawford, better known as Max, her father’s publishing rival, seeks her out at a society event, she’s drawn to his magnetic charisma and powerful demeanor. Their verbal bantering and innuendo laced overtones stir feelings she never knew existed, and soon Erika is consumed with knowing the real man under Max’s restrained public façade.

 

Erika’s sweet nature and naivety excites Max to near madness. He wants to train her in the art of seduction and make her succumb to his every wish and command…as his perfect submissive. Yet, Christopher is determined to keep Erika from becoming the latest victim of Max’s sinister sexual hungers. He knows all too well what Max hides in his black soul and will stop at nothing to reveal all of Max’s secrets in order to protect the one thing he holds dear above all else- Erika.

 

Max’s dark desires scare yet arouse Erika, as he opens her eyes to a new bold world full of passion and ecstasy she never imagined until him. But the biggest question remains: Is Erika’s craving for Max just an illusion that transpires behind the walls of The Gate?

The Key picks up the story line that started in The Gate, the first book in the Dark Path series. I have not read The Gate, but it was fairly easy to pick up on the story line and the author does a good job filling in the back story that is necessary to the current plot line. I really enjoyed this book and liked the dual story lines within it, and it was interesting getting a peak into the BDSM world that these characters live in.

You could really feel Erika’s need to find herself. She’s struggling with the loss of her father and trying to make sense out of her feelings for the two men who have tried to claim her. She’s determined to prove to herself and everyone – especially Max and Chris, her two suitors – that she can make it on her own and be the strong woman that she knows she can be. She had moved to New Orleans to try and get her life in order and make sense of her feelings, but her book is about to release and she must return to New York and face the two men that she ran from. What I loved about Erika is that you could definitely see her becoming a very strong woman, and although she struggled with her submissive reactions and feelings towards Max, you just got the sense she was going to be able to stand on her own two feet no matter what choices she made. When all sorts of craziness erupts around her, Erika has to confront her feelings and make some tough decisions – ones that will set the path to her future in motion.

Catherine was another story. She has gone back to Raymond, her Master, but is still dealing with feelings that were stirred in her by another man while she was away from Raymond. When she is forced to confront those feelings head on things get a bit nerve-wracking…Raymond demands Catherine’s obedience, and you can just feel the tension as the events unfold around her. It was interesting to watch Catherine struggle with her submissive side, and even though we are left unsure where things will end up, I enjoyed the build-up of emotions that Catherine was trying to sort through.

Of all the men I think I liked Max the most. As pushy, arrogant and egotistical as he could be, he always had Erika’s welfare at the forefront. And even though Erika continually fought her relationship with Max and tried to not let that spark between them drive all sense of reason from her mind to the point that she felt she was losing herself to him, Max was very aware of Erika’s needs and he didn't try to dominate everything about her. You could really get the sense that Max needed Erika and that need extended beyond a Dom/Sub relationship.

I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next one to see how things end up for Erika, Catherine and all the men. There were quite a few loose threads left at the end of The Key, but I think the main story lines were complete and the ending did a good job setting up the next book. The author does a good job with her character development and using all the supporting characters effectively to move the story forward and give it added depth. I’ll definitely be coming back for more of K.T. Grant!

I was given a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

The Key (The Dark Path #2) by K.T. Grant
The Key (Dark Path Series #2) - KT Grant

The Key is book two in the Dark Path series by K.T. Grant.  This book is not one I would recommend reading without reading book one first.  In fact, I really wish I had read book one again before starting this one. I had intended to, but just ran out of time. I really enjoyed book one and wanted to get immersed in the world again before starting this book.

 

We pretty much start about eight months since the end of book one. Erika has moved to New Orleans with a friend to get away from all the drama (and the two men) that was part of her life in New York. She wanted mostly wanted to get away from everything that happened in the first book.  She not only is she trying to recover from the many things that were thrown at her, she is also in the process of writing, what she expects to be a best selling erotica novel.  She is hoping that this will help save the publishing company that her father built.  It is putting more pressure on her than just a regular book release would on an author, as if that wasn't enough.

 

Catherine talks to Max, that she is going on an extended vacation in Maui.  She plans to go back to her Master, who she has been avoiding for months.  Her hope is to be back in New York in less than a year. Catherine has a lot to work through with her Master, from their past and from what has happened while they were apart.  She gets much more page time in this book, which I was really glad to see.  I loved reading her story.

 

When Max and Erika get back together, he has a real hard time not being the over dominate man that he Dom side wants him to be.  But Erika, is not the same timid girl he first met.  She is much more independent, than the timid woman from the beginning of the series.  That makes things much harder for him, because she doesn't want to take his word as law.  It causes many problems with this relationship that is just starting to be rebuilt.

 

Overall, I enjoyed this book just as much as book one.  It has some great plot lines between the different characters, there is pretty much two stories going on, one in New Orleans/New York and the one in Maui.  The characters all have very well developed and very strong personalities.  There are some very strong BDSM and menage scenes, which were very well written.

 

Like book one, this book ends abruptly. I was not real happy with where the story ended.  I'm not a fan of cliffhangers.  I can't believe I have to wait a year for the next book (book three is hopefully coming out in 2015, not sure exactly when). I can't wait to see where this story goes next.

 

This series is great for readers who like reading the BDSM and menage stories.  The characters are damaged and have a lot of healing to go through, so it is not just sex on the page.
