Book Description:

Julia Bennett isn’t having a great day. Funding for her video game is running low, her IT job is sucking her dry and to cap it all off she’s locked in a police station with the very handsome, extremely married guy she’s been avoiding at all costs.

Max Connor isn’t having a great year. He’s getting divorced, his best friend is squatting in his spare room and his inappropriate crush on the IT girl is getting dangerously out of hand. And that was before he locked the two of them in an evidence room for the weekend.

Surrounded by three decade’s worth of drugs, guns and floppy disks, Max and Julia are forced to confront the heat that lies between them with dangerous, funny and occasionally toe-curlingly sexy results.

Official Review

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Having been one of the readers of Eve Dangerfield’s debut novel “Degrees of Control”, I knew that she knew how to bring the heat but after experiencing Max and Julia there is not any doubt how incendiary her writing can be. I finished with a racing pulse, out of breath, and my mind had take up residence in the gutter. Locked Box is a unique story with complex, sultry characters that will leave you with a completely different view of police stations and evidence rooms. Max and Julia take us to unknown pleasurable heights and leave behind their own fair share of evidence while locked up together.

“His mind flooded with a technicolor montage of games they could play, starting with a kiss, and finishing with her writing in his lap.”

Julia Bennett has been pining for six years over an older guy who left her heart shattered and cold one evening and now only has time for a boyfriend she creates in her virtual world. Having grown up with a revolving door of her mother’s trashy boyfriends, she knows what she wants and doesn’t want. The only dilemma is that the one she wants is wearing a gold band on his left hand and is completely off limits. I absolutely love how passionate Julia is about life and her quirks and hang ups endeared me to this freckled, video game playing beauty.

“No, I don’t want to piss you off.” And she didn’t, not exactly, but there was something about Max when he was all fired up that made her whole body tingle.

Never have I ever wished more for a pair of silver restraints as I did while reading all about the sexy, gun toting, dominant Max Connor. Especially when he used phrases like “Oh, you gonna get it, sweetheart..”, I melted right on the spot. My heart goes out to Max for his idealistic values and I was giddy to see his IT crush turn all his beliefs on their head.

“Stay still and feel everything I’m doing to you,” “I want to-” He pressed his forehead against hers. “I want to get you there first.”

Eve Dangerfield takes us on a stimulating, heart melting journey through this couples troubled past and scintillating time in close quarters. Eve is quickly becoming a favorite author for me, with her kindle melting scenes and emotionally charged stories that arouse and steal my heart. I highly recommend for lovers of “steamier” romance with beautifully flawed characters and an attention grabbing story line. She writes amazing bossy alpha males and head strong beauties that are irresistible.




Without thinking he seized both her wrists, pulling them down to her sides. Julia drove her forehead into his and sparks exploded behind Max’s eyes. “Ow, fuck!”
Instinctively he forced Julia back, pinning her body to the floor and parting her legs with his thighs. She jerked her hips, trying to throw him off. He pressed down, trapping her under his weight. “Gotcha. Not so tough now are you?”
Julia’s smile was wicked. “No I’m not Max.”
Oh no. Oh fuck. He was on top of her, his hips were bearing down on hers, their eyes were level, their mouths were level. The curve of Julia’s upper lip was inches from his, her. He couldn’t kiss her could he? His heart would give out if he even tried. He waited on the edge of everything for a sign, some confirmation of what to do. His head was pounding, his cock was pounding, his hands still holding her wrists were shaking.
“Max…” Julia’s breath was coming out in light shallows pants. “I-I want you. I’ve wanted you for ages.”
She kissed him soft and slow. Bright spots popped behind Max’s eyes as pleasure twisted like amphetamines in his blood. This is it, he thought. This is fucking it though what that meant he couldn’t begin to explain.
Julia’s hands stroked through his hair and he pulled away, unsure of what was happening.
“Was that bad?” she asked.
“That was the furthest fucking thing from bad.”
He raised a hand to his lips, stroking his tingling mouth. They’d kissed. The girl he liked kissed him. The sensation was as fresh as it had been at fourteen. This is it. This is fucking it.
Before he knew what was happening they were kissing again that graceless, all-consuming way teenagers kissed, like you needed swallow the other person whole and fuck them through their clothes at the same time. Julia stroked his back and shoulders, reaching between them to caress every muscle she could find. She was greedier than he could have possibly imagined and the idea got him hot enough to melt steel. He did a little exploring of his own, sucking on her tongue as he cupped her breasts, kneading the sweet little mounds until she sighed into his mouth. They consumed each other, hips moving restlessly and Julia wrapped her legs around his waist, pressing her jeans against his aching dick. “More.”
Max kissed her neck. “More what baby?”
“Just more. I need more of you.”
He held back, needing to hear her say the words. “Tell me what to do and I’ll do it.”
