Lena Diaz returns with another sexy, thrilling Deadly Games novel and the darkest question of all: What do you do when your freedom could cost you your life?

Detective Emily O'Malley just stumbled upon a killer's lair—and the remains of a woman he kept locked away for years. But this killer isn't done yet. More women are missing, and all clues point to Devlin Buchanan—the man who seems to know just a little too much. Emily's instincts are rarely wrong, and now they're telling her this sexy, mysterious man is hiding something big …

As a trained assassin for EXIT Inc—a top-secret mercenary group posing as an international tour company—Devlin "Devil" Buchanan isn't afraid to take justice into his own hands. But when the hot new detective on his trail gets too close to the organization and a contract is placed on her life, Devlin does the only thing he can: he turns rogue agent and kidnaps her to save her life.

With EXIT Inc closing in and passions running hot between them, Emily and Devlin must work together to find the missing women and clear both their names before time runs out … and the key to freedom is thrown away.

This is a favorite series of mine. I was so happy when I found out that Take The Key and Lock Her Up was about Devlin Buchanan. I have to admit he is one of my favorite of the Buchanan's. Out of all the brothers his life was a mystery. Of course that ends when he saves Emily O'Malley. So much about this book I loved, but there are a few things that bugged me. I wasn't a fan of EXIT. I know why I'm not, and can't tell you without ruining the book for you and I refuse to do that. Now saying I wasn't a fan of them doesn't mean I don't feel what they did didn't make the book a good one. This is a series I would read in order so you can learn everyone's story before you get to this one. I promise you'll be happy with them all. Diaz weaves enough humor and action to keep you turning the pages. 


  1. I know what you mean about EXIT. But Lena is a good author and the love these books! I am reading this story right now.

    1. You'll enjoy it. Devlin is my favorite character of hers. He's so sexy!
