Love in Lockdown: Locke - Tracy Lorraine
Reading Challenge Category: Just wanted to read
I’ve got two vices in life. Basketball My best friend’s little sister. I’ve managed to stay away from one of them, no matter how tempting. She thinks I hate her. It was the easiest way to ensure she kept her distance. But suddenly we’re forced into lockdown together in her family home and for the first time in my life, basketball isn’t going to be enough to distract me. I need her, and her brother being only feet away isn’t going to stop me from claiming what should have been mine years ago.
This was a compilation of books by different authors; however, I have only read ‘Locke’ by Tracy Lorraine. I was really unsure about reading a book about people being stuck at home for lockdown. Everything is still too fresh, and we are still suffering the after-effects. However, this is Tracy Lorraine, and I’ve read everything she’s written, it is also an extension to the Rosewood High series, so how could I not read it! Even though Alyssa and Emerson are locked in a house together with her family, it was very well written and didn’t make me feel claustrophobic. It didn’t feel like it was based on real-life events either. It just felt like fiction! The story was very sweet, light-hearted and romantic. The characters were likeable, and the development of their affections felt gradual and not rushed. We don’t get to know a lot about what makes the characters tick as this is just a short story, but this doesn’t stop you feeling invested in what happens to them. It was great to get back to reading a short story by Tracy Lorraine, as her current books have been getting longer and longer. It was a quick short blast of her brilliance. Definitely worth a read and don’t let the current situation being portrayed put you off. I may be brave in the future and read some of the others but am going to leave them for now.
