Review: Locked, Loaded, and Lying by Sarah Andre

He might be innocent.
Or he might be very, very guilty...

Olympic skier Lock Roane was on top of the world: smashing world records, collecting medals, and basking in the love of a nation and his beautiful heiress girlfriend. It all comes crashing down after Lock discovers his girlfriend had an affair - then wakes from a drunken bender to find himself covered in her blood. Disgraced and dethroned, Lock awaits his murder trial with dread, not knowing if his girlfriend died at his own hands.

Journalist Jordan Sinclair is out of options. To satisfy her blackmailer, she must get the inside scoop (and its cash reward) on Lock Roane. An attraction to the arrogant athlete was not part of the plan. Neither is trying to find out what really happened that night. Now Jordan risks everything - including her life - to help the man she's falling for. A man who just might be a cold-blooded killer...

Lock Roane is a ski champion hiding out of the spotlight for his impending murder trial. Yes, murder. After having a fight with his girlfriend, he blacks out drunk and wakes to find her dead and himself covered in her blood. All this with no memory of what happened, so he can’t defend the allegations.

Jordan Sinclair is a journalist, with some secrets, who sets out to find Lock and get the inside story. She needs money to pay off her blackmailer-or her secrets go public. When her car slides off an icy road during a storm, Lock rescues her. What luck she thinks only to find out he has no clue as to who killed his girlfriend, whether it be he himself or someone else.

As things heat up between them, Jordan starts to believe Lock. Even though the hard evidence against Lock is pretty bad, they try to find clues to who would want his drama-filled girlfriend dead. There are plenty of suspects in this one and a case could be made for each of them. We are kept guessing till the end and the rollercoaster ride is fast and hot! Plenty of mystery and suspense is involved plus some romance on the side!

All in all, Locked, Loaded, and Lying is a good book! If you love your stories to have a bit more than the usual romances, check this mystery out. I think you will be glad you gave it a go!
