Story Overview:

Sorry, ladies—and fellas—Hollywood’s 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.

My Review:
Overall: 4.5
Performance: 4.25
Story: 4.5

This book picks up exactly where the first book left off, so if you haven't read that book, stop reading this review right now because there will be spoilers from the first story. 

So, in this book, Ace and Dylan are still dealing with the backlash from the expose about their relationship. Ace is losing jobs right and left, but the notoriety has actually done some great things for Dylan's modeling. On top of all the mental strife that is causing, now they are also having to deal with the crazy intrusive paparazzi every time they turn around. Things are a little stressful which is hard on any relationship, much less one as new as theirs is. 

The one thing that I truly loved about all the places that this story went (and it did go all over the place...including those awful scenes with Dylan's mother)...I loved that Ace never ONCE faltered in his commitment to Dylan. That makes him an incredible hero...because this relationship is ruining everything for him, but he still refuses to even consider giving Dylan up. I LOVED THAT SO, SO MUCH!

That's what makes these stories so good...truly Dylan and Ace are perfect together (that and the omg, hotter than hot visuals the authors paint of the two guys...happy sigh). 

I just love this series and am already listening to the third and final book in the series.
