The bad boy.
The fuck up.
The thief.

That was me.
Once a king,
Now a wanderer.

I’d thrown the best parts of me away, over and over again.
I was reckless.
Still am.
I’d been exiled.
I did my time.
I’ve cleaned up.
Well, sort of.
I got plans.
Yeah, good ones.

Then I ran into her.

A bolt of lightning
Out of reach.

The woman I once scorned years ago
is now the woman I can’t live without.
I need what I didn’t think I’d ever need again.
I want and want and want.


She’s the epicenter of the war I’ve triggered,
of the battle in my rusted heart.
I may be as reckless as I ever was,
but I’m determined as fuck.

To hell with it.

I want it all.




Kindle Friends Forever 4.5  Review by Sharon Thérèse

Not one to read the blurb as I love going into a read blind, I have to admit that this wasn’t the case and made an exception with the fourth book in the Lock & Key series. As I have read the whole series, was and still am bowled over by all the memorable characters in an MC saga overflowing with suspense and twists and turns at every corner, I consider my shortcoming excusable. And what a synopsis and a half! In my book, Ms Porter is the blurb queen par excellence! So if this doesn’t whet your appetite, goodness knows what will! One has to mention that this cannot be read as a standalone; however, the author has gone to great lengths with her structural writing. Highly polished and with a flow second to none, every one of the club members’ history or story for a better word, is carefully integrated into the One Eyed Jacks’ club nudging one’s memory. I really felt strongly about this book. It was if I underwent a change; even matured and grew alongside the two protagonists who aren’t by any means young bunnies or ignorant to the fact that they’d had a rocky past. Two people that just had to have their say, had to open their hearts and confess all in their own way with time, patience and above all, understanding.

To be outlawed in the only club he had ever known and loved was for Butler, harsh. He’d made many dreadful mistakes. Now he wants to redeem himself, be accepted by those he values and prove his worthiness. I loved how I was offered first-hand what went wrong; why, and how he was going to make amends. There is no doubt whatsoever that I saw a huge change in him and definitely for the better. Going back to his roots has its consequences and are not as easy as I thought it would be. Flipping the pages to find out why he’d returned with whom he did, frustrated the pants of me. Beforehand, a coincidence occurs making me think his future was cut and dry. Nope, quite a twist here but he’ll eventually see the light of day and start sowing the seed with a cautiousness that literally sold me and totally fitting in a love story between two mature adults. So was it truly a case of slowly, slowly catchy monkey? Yeah! I can’t put into words how much I liked his modus operandi regardless of the setbacks he’s going to have.

Why Tania disappeared from the face of the earth for nearly eleven years leaving behind her loved ones are details to be revealed. But I will say this; feeling isolated in a world empty of emotions, frustrated in her profession and in a relationship that wasn’t going anywhere, she wants back. Hers weren’t really mistakes; more like bad choices and no way comparable with Butler’s background. Hmm… discovering who she’d rubbed shoulders with in the past and the reasons why completely threw me. But how could I not fall for this lass! So loving, so family oriented, so gutsy and yearning to have her own identity. No holds barred, she takes the bull by the horns and does what she has always wanted to do and oh boy, does she do it well! Ooh, and I simply adored the way she made friends with the enemy and when the truth is divulged, she even stands up for this person. Yeah, Tania truly has a marvellous soul whose heart is as big as the state she lives in.

The sizzling chemistry which jumps off the pages I found at times, quite frustrating. Well, in one scene when the sweetest of delicacies were added to the heat of the moment, my toes literally curled. How then could I not forgive these two love birds for their tentative start then! A past happening of the most embarrassing kind is a major factor that has to be taken into consideration and makes for very interesting reading as it does actually change the course of events and influences Butler and Tania’s stance towards each other. Therefore, throwing light on this detail was for me, extremely important.

Moments of angst in this MC’s political club issues need more diplomacy than fisticuffs and much less than we’ve been used to. Whatever problem arose, seeing them being dealt with coherent dialogue held my attention throughout; in fact, I can’t say how much I liked the opposition! Butler falls into his role perfectly and is prepared to pull his weight alongside characters from previous books. What an absolute pleasure it was meeting up with the gang once again.

As always, Cat goes to town with the banter and I can’t put into words how much I loved this. Yes, KFF are total banter snobs! Nevertheless, I would have liked this read to be a teeny weeny bit shorter and the epilogue confused me a tad. I felt some of the details drawn out but saying that, it could well be me! I wasn’t in the least short-changed though. And the covers of the whole series have to be mentioned. Deary me, beyond titillating. Bravo to you Cat Porter for a marvellous follow up to an unforgettable series!

About the Author

Cat Porter was born and raised in New York City, but also spent a few years in Europe, Texas and the suburbs along the way. As an introverted, only child, she had very big, but very secret dreams for herself. She graduated from Vassar College, was a struggling actress, an art gallery girl, special events planner, freelance writer, and had all sorts of other crazy jobs all hours of the day and night to help make those dreams come true. She has two children’s books traditionally published under her maiden name. She now lives in Greece with her husband and three children, and freaks out regularly and still daydreams way too much. She is addicted to old movies, the History Channel, her iPad, her husband’s homemade red wine, really dark chocolate, and her Nespresso coffee machine. Writing keeps her somewhat sane, extremely happy, and a productive member of society.
