Lockout picks up right where the first novel ends. Sophia and Sebastian develops a relationship and she attempts to tear down his resistant walls as the secrets just get to much for her. Sophia begins to realize that there is more to Sebastian than meets the eye and is hell bent on finding out how he really feels about her.
(Taken from the book synopsis) But things are never as simple as they appear. Sophia’s trust is a fragile thing, and Sebastian seems insistent on testing it. He has his own demons to battle, and nobody has brought them to the fore like she has.
As their relationship deepens, and Sophia begins to break down his walls, all that greets her are more questions. Why is Sebastian fighting so hard to keep her at a distance? Who is the girl on the background of his phone? And why does the strange tattoo on his chest seem so familiar?
These puzzles plague her, but as Sebastian’s mysteries begin to unravel, she must face an entirely different truth. Staying in the dark may be painful, but finding the answers could be deadly.
This book for me got right into deciphering the mystery that is Sebastian and I loved that about it. As secrets began to be revealed Sophia and Sebastian have a lot of decisions to make and the challenges around that seem even greater. The action in this novel is great and of course it leaves you on yet another cliffhanger. The sex scenes are really steamy, but the action and mystery really wraps this novel up and pushes it to the next level.
