⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5
A beautiful young girl locked away in a New York City Penthouse. She knows nothing of the outside world other than what she is able to read in books, but they are fiction.
Zell lives a sheltered life. She believes it’s because her mother wants to keep her safe, even though her mother doesn’t treat as a mother should. She believes that it’s because the world is not a bright place but can be dark and dangerous. Little does she know that it’s because the people around her are the dark and dangerous ones in the world.
Frankie Russo was born into the world of darkness and can’t wait to get out and away from it and his father. He has a plan, but that isn’t going to go the way he is planning it to. One night and the meeting of a young beautiful girl will change his life and his plan. Frankie knows the difference between right and wrong and his moral code won’t allow him to follow in his father’s shoes.
This was a story of twists, surprises, and suspense. The characters are interesting, naïve, and kept in the dark for most of the book. When they connect and find out the darkness and deception of Frank Russo Senior, their combined efforts will reveal their strength and power and allow them to take action to make a better life for themselves. I enjoy Kimberly Knight’s writing and her books always seem to pull me in keep a hold on me until the very end. Lock is no exception. I do look forward to more in this series and I am looking forward to Deliverance, and Ricardo and Erin’s story. I give this story a 4.5-star review.
