Sorry, ladies
and fellasHollywoods hottest action star, Ace Locke, is officially off the market!

The man on Locke’s arm has been identified as Dylan Prescott, the sexy new “it” model currently featured in the latest Calvin Klein ads. Sources tell TNZ the men met on the set of Locke’s upcoming action film Insurrection 2, and that “they only have eyes for each other.”
This is the first public gay relationship for Locke, who came out a year ago, and there has been much speculation on who would finally be the one to catch his eye.

According to multiple eyewitnesses, Locke whisked Prescott away on his private jet for a romantic weekend at Syn, the most exclusive hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. After pictures recently surfaced of the new couple, affectionately named PresLocke, it appears from the possessive way Locke keeps his new beau close that things are heating up.

The world is watching #PresLocke, and we’ll be sure to keep you up to date on this budding relationship!

Ace and Dylan’s story continues in Book Two of the Bestselling PresLocke Series.

Book #2 in this great series.
Remember what happened in the first book?
Ace and Dylan have just been caught by a paparazzo in their Vegas hotel room.
And now it's Crazy-Town wherever they go. The paps are camping outside Ace's house, Dylan's apartment-building, the film-studios. They're everywhere!
And Ace is worried that it will be too much for Dylan - he's not used to photographers following him.
But Dylan very quickly promises Ace that nothing will ever be able to keep him away from him.
He will learn how to live the life of a Hollywood-Superstar-Boyfriend.

But will he really be able to handle all that pressure?
And will Ace be able to handle the guilty feeling that it's all his fault that Dylan has to go through all this mess?
But Ace is kind of the only one suffering; Hollywood still doesn't like their action stars to be gay - Dylan's getting jobs all over the world now that he's been seen with the Hollywood superstar!
Will the young love survive all that drama??
And added to all that, what will happen when your past comes back to stir up trouble!?!?


 I'm not telling you that of course

No Cliffy, but we're not yet done with our 2 darlings!!! YAYYYY


We're finally back with our two boys.
And the second book was just as adorable as the first one!

We have LOTS of very sexy moments....

And so many frustrating paparazzi moments ...
We constantly hope that Dylan will not run away from it all...
We're hoping all through the book that nothing bad will happen to Dylan and Ace....

Ugh, I just want to hit every homophobic person in Hollywood and the rest of the world over the head with amazing books like this one!!!

I would love to take a trip through time - to check if people 200 years from now are smarter or if it's all horribly Trumpish ...

But back to the story -
Dylan and Ace pretty much already have their HEA - there's - THANK YOU JESUS - not much drama that's causing our darlings to fight. It's just the outside world that's having trouble with them.
I love books where authors do not create lame and unnecessary drama!
But of course it's not yet time to happily ride into the sunset - there are problems to solve and careers to save... And we have an amazing time reading how they're fighting for their HEA epilogue!!!!

LOCKED was another erotic & adorable Hollywood-Love-Story about two guys fighting to find their HEA! Run to your nearest amazon to find out if they finally succeed. ☺

ARC received for an honest review

I have been impatiently awaiting the arrival of Locked on my Kindle.

And it was worth every single agonising second of the wait.

I was on tenterhooks as I open the first page of Locked, hoping, praying to the universe that what happened at the end of Aced didn't really happen.

But when it did, I was anxious for how things would play out, not just with our boys but with the media and celebrity obsessed public.

There were so many awwwww moments, so many happy moments, so many sad moments, so many moments where I was angry and frustrated at the world we live in and what the boys had to deal with.
But what I LOVED about this book? Both Dylan and Ace acted like adults. No childish arguments, none of those misunderstandings due to not communicating. They talked shit out, they stuck by each other and every day their relationship got stronger.

Thank you Ella and Brooke for not creating non-existent drama around them.

Sure, there was no immediate riding off into the Sunset (or to Sunset Cove!) and they had professional and personal crap they had to overcome. But you will not be disappointed in where things go.

And even better news was finding out there would be another books - *arms flailing, screaming like a little girl**

And now I start the daily stalking to find out when we will get more of them (even though it won't be until 2017 boooooo)

So until then, Ace and Dylan say hi

• Excerpt •

“You’re looking pretty serious over there, Daydream.” There was humor in his tone, but it didn’t quite reach his eyes. “You okay?”
I nodded slowly as I made my way over to where he sat. I reached for the phone and put it on the table, and when I cupped the side of his face and lowered my lips to his, I said, “I’m just great.”
Ace pulled away slightly and raised an eyebrow. “Great, huh?”
“Mhmm. I was just thinking…”
“Always a dangerous pastime,” Ace said, and brought a palm up to lay it directly over my heart, and I wondered if he could feel it thudding.
“No. Not this time,” I said.
“Nope. I was just thinking how wonderful you are.”
“Okay, sweet talker—”
“I’m serious,” I said, bringing my other hand up so I was cradling his face between my palms. “I wish for one day you could be me, so you could see what an incredibly brave, sweet, extraordinary human being you are. You have so much, Ace, yet…you’re more generous and humble than anyone I know.”
“Shh,” I whispered against his lips. “I just wanted you to know that I…” I caught myself at the last minute as his eyes pierced mine and I was paralyzed by the enormity of emotions flooding me.
God, how is it that in twelve weeks this man has completely turned my world upside down? But he had. Ace had me wanting things…things I’d never even thought about before. Things I always assumed I would never want.
“You…?” he said, but my mind had changed course. The emotions had blurred and morphed into something else entirely, and then, quite unexpectedly, I asked, “Do you want kids?”
From the stunned expression on Ace’s face, I might as well have asked him if he were a serial killer. His eyes had widened and his mouth fell open, and he looked so bewildered I couldn’t stop the chuckle that bubbled out of me.
“Uhh…” he said.
He appeared so shell-shocked it made me laugh even harder. “I’m sorry…but you should see your face right now… I promise, I’m not pregnant.” When I began laughing again, Ace’s mouth snapped shut and he brought both his hands up to my wrists to encircle them and tug me down into the booth with him. He scooted across the seat until he was lounging back against the wall and I was awkwardly sprawled across him.
“Excuse me if you took me a little bit off guard,” he said.
“A little bit?”
“Okay, a whole fucking lot. But that wasn’t where I thought you were going with that at all.”
I aimed a grin his way, trying to play down the fact that I’d been about three seconds away from handing over more of me than I knew I could ever get back should Ace decide he didn’t—
“Hey?” he said. “Where’d you go?”
It was Ace’s turn to chuckle. “What is up with you? You’re all over the place.”
I sighed, knowing that he was right. Maybe it was like a postproduction crash or something. But I felt oddly sentimental. Like all of my feelings were right there on the surface.
I stroked my fingers down his cheek. “I just think you would be an amazing father, is all. And I was curious.”
He narrowed his eyes on me. “I don’t think that’s it at all, but to answer your question. Yes, I think one day and”—his eyes were so intent on holding mine then that there was no way I could look anywhere but at him, and his meaning was crystal clear before he even said it—“with the right person, I would definitely consider having kids. What about you?”
“I never really thought I would, considering where I came from and all. But…” I chewed on my lower lip, suddenly wishing I’d kept my damn mouth shut.
My eyes locked with his and I decided it was now or never to really just lay it out there. “But watching you today on set made me think about what-ifs.”
The grin that curved Ace’s mouth then was cheeky, and for the first time since we’d entered the trailer, his eyes lit with the same amusement his smile was conveying.
“Are you trying to say you want me to knock you up? Because, Dylan, I have to tell you, I have some pretty powerful boys at work, but no amount of horny goat weed is gonna make that happen.”
It was my turn for my jaw to drop then, and when Ace started laughing his ass off I punched him in the arm. “Dick.”
“Aww, but you just said I was wonderful.”
“A wonderful dick.”
“But not magical enough to get you pregnant.”
“Would you stop saying that. You’re freaking me out.”
Ace’s rumble of laughter vibrated through him as he wrapped his arms around my waist, and finally, after a minute or two, when his mirth had subsided, he stroked a hand down my back to my ass and pulled me as close as was possible while wearing clothes.
“It’s okay to look at the future and think about what might be, Daydream.”
I laid my head against his shoulder and shut my eyes. “I know. This is all just happening so fast. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to believe it’s real.”
I felt his lips at my temple and then he whispered, “It’s real. So believe it. Plan it. Trust it.”
I nodded and then angled my face to see him look up at me. He had a soft smile on his face, and for the first time all day he looked relaxed, and I knew that as long as we were together the future looked brighter than ever.
