The heart can lead you to dangerous places. Abandoned by the man she loves, with nothing more than sweet words and riddles for an explanation, Sophia Pearce felt like her life was crumbling before her eyes. And then they came for her. Now, things will never be the same.

Confronted with the truth about Sebastian’s identity, she’s thrust into a high stakes world beyond anything she could have imagined. A world that threatens much more than just her feelings. Sebastian’s enemies will stop at nothing to get what they want, and they want her.

Their passion for one another consumes them, but as the danger mounts, and loyalties are tested, Sophia must answer one simple question. What is she willing to risk for love?

The conclusion we were all looking forward to finally came and I’m not sure about you guys, but I was literally dying to know just who Sebastian Lock really was. I’m very conscious not to give anything away as this is the third and final book in a trilogy so I’ll keep this short with no spoilers.

I have to say all questions were answered and I really loved how this instalment wasn’t over in a flash like the previous books. However, I’m still of the same opinion as I’ve been from book one that this should have been one book. Because, what ultimately happened with three smaller instalments is that the character and story developments resulted in a bit of a disjoined storyline and abrupt character changes. Well, in my opinion anyway. However, read back to back as if one whole, I’d definitely say this series is a four star read. Splitting the story up resulted in sudden cut off endings that affected the momentum of drama, angst and emotional build-up, as well as the character development like I said. So, if you haven’t started this series I’d read all three books straight to get the whole effect of the story, which is definitely one I’d recommend.

We learn so much more about Sebastian, so many secrets are revealed and man does this guy have a lot of them. His persona changes quite dramatically, I suppose you could say we see beyond the controlling bad arse alpha exterior and get a more human and vulnerable snap shot of Sebastian. He never lost that protective ‘mine’ quality though.

“His touch was soothing. His presence washed over me, filling me with that primal sense of security…” – Sophia

I’d say Sebastian changes his demeanour in some ways. Some were for the better, some not so much. However, perhaps this was the intention. No matter what though I still love him.

“Nothing worth having comes risk free.” – Sebastian

Sophia loves this man, despite everything that’s happened, the predicament she now finds herself in. No matter what, he’s the one for her. She knows this. His presence in her life has turned it upside down and brought danger knocking on her door but she absolutely loves Sebastian. Even though he infuriates her at times.

“He felt like home, and for just that night, I pretended like he still was.” – Sophia

Sophia, you’ve got to give it to her, her strength is immeasurable and this girl keeps her sense of humour going even under intense adversity. I really do love her character!

Unlocked had loads of drama and action. It was the pinnacle of the crescendo from book one and two. Did I think this drama came at the expense of the passion and romance?  Yes, a little bit if I’m honest, however there were still quite a few heart melting moments and of course some of those ‘hot flush’ ones too! I have to say though, that I didn’t think it was necessary to tame the naughty side of Sebastian. He should’ve kept that, this disappointed me, as I don’t think it would’ve interfered with the secrets coming to light nor the drama. Or even us seeing the vulnerable side of him!

The secrets….well they both intrigued me, broke my heart and made me swoon and I have to say that overall I really did enjoy this series and I’m happy to say that I finally know who Sebastian Lock really is!

“No matter what I do, no matter how sure I am, you say just the right thing to make me question myself.” – Sebastian
