Welcome, Z. Allora, with the latest installment of a story in the Dark Angels world. If you’ve been reading that luscious series as I have, you’ll recognize the younger brothers of the band. Lock and Key stands alone, and I’m ready to read Zack and Andrew’s scorching story.
I want to thank Pd Singer for hosting part 6 of Lock and Key’s blog tour. I’m indebted to Pd Singer for also being one of my critique partners who saves readers from my squirrel speak and stops my abuse of the English language.
I believe we’re all a product of our experiences, which creates the filters we view the world through. I wanted to share how Zack’s perceptions and interactions prior to Lock and Key shaped his expression of BDSM.

Stopping to get his younger brother a hot chocolate had been a mistake. Jordon hadn’t stopped yammering for the last thirty minutes. Zack had given up trying to follow the train of Jordy’s crazy as it zoomed from one station to another.
The image of his older brother standing next to his hot boyfriend waving good-bye was embedded in Zack’s brain. He’d never be Dusty. His older brother had it together: he was out, had a boyfriend who seemed really nice and was living the rock and roll dream as a drummer. Everything seemed to fall into place for him.
Zack wasn’t jealous. He was glad for Dust but it must be incredible to just… well be! No hiding, no pretending, and just be yourself.
When Jordon took a breath Zack jumped into the fray. “So um, Jordy, you know we can’t tell Mom we met Dusty’s boyfriend.”
“I know. But ah, I want one of those! God, Zack. Dusty’s boyfriend was pretty!”
There was no avoiding this conversation. “I know Jordy, and I think that’s fine. But please keep your sparkle and rainbow lust under wraps.”
“What! No! Why?”
Zack hated himself but begged, “Just until after high school. Please, Mom would—”
“I don’t care. What about my feelings and what I want?” Jordon huffed and glared out the car window.
What about me? Zack slammed that self-indulgent question back to the recesses of his mind as soon as it attempted to seek an answer. No way could he contemplate his needs. He focused on Jordon. “It’s just two more years. Then you’re out of her house and at college.”
“Yeah, easy for you to say since you graduate in June!” Jordon pointed out.
Ha! Jordon had no idea how Zack could never be himself… gay was only part of what he needed to hide.

Lock And Key by Z. Allora
Rejected. Heartbroken. Devastated.
Zack Davis wanted to serve only one man, Andrew Nikeman. He was denied because Andrew thought he was too young and because their brothers were together. So Zack crushed his submissive tendencies and focused on being the perfect Dom, giving every sub he played with something he couldn’t have.
After years of denying his submissive side, Entwined’s charity auction “Are you Dom enough to be a sub?” gives Zack an excuse to get a little of what he’s always craved.
Andrew doesn’t know when his infatuation turned into more, but it kills him to see Zack with a constant parade of submissives. He’d refused to jeopardize his brother’s relationship or become Zack’s regret; however, Zack isn’t a kid anymore, and his brother’s relationship is unbreakable. Now Zack’s popularity and success as a Dom might ruin Andrew’s dreams of collaring him, but he can’t wait any longer to confess his feelings or he risks losing the man he loves forever.
