When eighteen-year-old Irene Adler meets her new neighbor, the gorgeous, brilliant, and arrogant Sherlock Holmes, she never expects him to be the one to make her feel like life is worth living again. Ever since her sister's death, she's been addicted to risk-taking as a way to deal with her depression, and Sherlock quickly becomes the biggest risk she's ever taken.Locked turned out to be a complete surprise for me! I didn't know what to expect going into this book. All I knew about it was that it was a take on Sherlock Holmes. Now I don't know much about Sherlock Holmes besides the solving of mysteries, so I honestly didn't really know much going into the story. I saw a movie once, but I can't remember anything about it...Okay so that's kind of irrelevant, but anyways :) This book was action packed and full of fun mysteries to solve. I haven't been this excited about a book in quite sometime. I could not put the book down! I flew the Locked in a day and was sad when the book ended because I wanted more. I would definitely recommend this book if you like fun reads and mysteries. I'd also recommend this book to those who like sarcastic characters.
Locked is the story of a broken girl and the genius who gives her life back to her. It's the story of a witty asshole who's never known love, and the girl who shows him what love means. It's the story of an unexpected connection, two people who save each other, and the importance of seeing the goodness underneath.
