Sorry, ladies—and fellas—Hollywood’s hottest action star, Ace Locke, is officially off the market!

The man on Locke’s arm has been identified as Dylan Prescott, the sexy new “it” model currently featured in the latest Calvin Klein ads. Sources tell TNZ the men met on the set of Locke’s upcoming action film Insurrection 2, and that “they only have eyes for each other.”

This is the first public gay relationship for Locke, who came out a year ago, and there has been much speculation on who would finally be the one to catch his eye.

According to multiple eyewitnesses, Locke whisked Prescott away on his private jet for a romantic weekend at Syn, the most exclusive hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. After pictures recently surfaced of the new couple, affectionately named PresLocke, it appears from the possessive way Locke keeps his new beau close that things are heating up.

The world is watching #PresLocke, and we’ll be sure to keep you up to date on this budding relationship!

Ace and Dylan’s story continues in Book Two of the Bestselling PresLocke Series.

This review may contain spoilers to book one Aced...

This starts out right after the cliffhanger in Aced where Dylan and Ace's secret was just outed by a tenacious paparazzo. Now Ace and Dylan are dealing with the fall out, the media swarm, and making decisions about what they plan to do about their no-longer-secret relationship.

Emotions are running high--frustration, anger, confusion, fear...but there is also a sense of impending freedom.  But it is a big decision that will change their lives.

The consequences have the potential to be substantial and could be negative or positive. They are truly a couple now caught up in a media storm. Not everyone will be happy about their relationship. Their careers and public images could potentially take a hit. There are paps and other negative influences just ready to pounce. And they are still a new couple and have not revealed all of their secrets. 

I adore both of these guys. I can't even pick a favorite. They are both so charismatic, funny, sweet, and lovable. We are seeing the humble, caring, softer side of superstar  Ace Locke. And Dylan is so free, funny, and accepting. These guys together are seriously just--oh-holy-hell-there-they-go-again-scorching-hot!  Get a cold drink and grab a fan! They have a fun rapport, passion, and an intense need for each other. And their emotional bond continues to build and grow. They excite each other, but also can be a calming influence and safety net when needed. Seeing them begin to open up and trust adds a depth to this couple and is so heartfelt. Everything is not easy for these guys. They have challenges, set backs, and fears. But this is where it gets real and we see them have to figure out what they want and if they are willing to keep working towards it. 

I hurt for them during some of the negative situations they had to deal with, but there were a lot of positives too that brought smiles to my face. It was fun catching up with other characters from the Sunset Cove and the L.A. Liaisons series as well as a certain lawyer. I enjoyed the bond, humor,  and camaraderie with their friends. And Dylan's quirky family are scene stealers as well.

Ella and Brooke did it again! I loved this installment! I realized again just how much I adore these two guys. I am happy that we get both of their points of view.  They do have some challenges and issues, but I liked that they were mostly outside of their relationship. And they were allowed the chance to get closer and grow without a lot of intrinsic angst and drama. They are each other's dream and reality at the same time and I was just flipping pages hoping to see them find happiness, contentment, and peace, but enjoying the hotness and sweetness along the way. I was totally swooning and smiling so many times! They are just the cutest, sexiest, sweetest guys and they make such a dynamic couple. I just cannot get enough of PresLocke. They need to really exist so I could stalk them on real social media outlets. I am that attached.

I do not usually comment on covers in my review, but have to say...these two covers together are just perfection! The guys, the skylines, the colors, the title work, all of it...

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

From Ella Frank’s Sunset Cove series and Brooke Blaine’s L.A. Liaisons series comes a scorchingly hot novel that blends humor, passion, and romance.

What happens when these two worlds collide?

Ace Locke is Hollywood’s hottest action hero. Women across the globe fling their panties in his direction, but Ace isn’t interested in those—he’s more of a boxer briefs kind of guy. Specifically, those of the nearly naked male model on a billboard he drives past every day.

Though he recently made headlines for his public coming out, Ace is wary about pursuing a relationship, fearing what the court of public opinion will do to his career. But there’s something in the model’s expression that intrigues him and has him wondering what if?

Dylan Prescott just scored his biggest modeling campaign yet. One that has him plastered all over L.A. in not much more than what he was born with. And when he’s cast in Ace’s latest blockbuster, it puts him in close proximity to his ultimate fantasy.

Outwardly confident, Dylan has no problem with his sexuality or his pretty-boy looks, and uses both to his advantage to get what he wants. And what he wants is the impossible—Ace Locke.

PresLocke is a spin-off from these series....

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her 'quiet time.' Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

Brooke enjoys writing sassy contemporary romance, whether in the form of comedy, suspense, or erotica. The latter has scarred her conservative Southern family for life, bless their hearts. 

If you'd like to get in touch with her, she's easy to find - just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that's dominated her cell phone for ten years.
