    One thought on “Random & Rare”

    1. 4.5 starsLock & Key was one of my favorite biker books of 2014. I love Cat Porter’s writing, I loved that the hero/heroine were a little older, and most of all I loved getting into Grace’s past story. The majority of Random & Rare IS that story. It’s the story of Dig and Grace. And it’s told from Dig’s pov. Dig was one of my favorite characters in the first book. I adore Miller, don’t get me wrong. But Dig is something special. Seeing his relationship with Grace, the things l [...]

    2. ★★★★ 3.5 Stars ★★★★Now LIVE!: amzn/198GWJe UK: amzn/1AdhU0O Random & Rare was a powerful and emotional book that was packed full of detail relating to the events that occurred in book 1 Lock & Key.Split into two parts, Part One takes us back to the very beginning of Grace's story, but told in the point of view of her first husband, Dig. Life with the One Eyed Jacks MC was always a hectic life and we are thrown knee deep into the intricacies of the club business that we fi [...]

    3. ARC from the author. Thank You. Some spoilerage ahead. I buddy read this with my Edgy girls and they all slapped a five star on this, so I am the minority here. Well I was super excited to get this one. I really liked Lock and Key despite the fact I felt the H was not alpha enough to stake his claim on our h by 60% in on that book. I also enjoyed this author's historical romance, Wolfsgate. Lock and Key had great side characters and I was excited to see who was up next. So , I get blurb from the [...]

    4. Omg this is just amazing.Cat Porter is becoming one of my favourite authors and I 've only read 2 of her books. I thought the first book Lock & Key was brilliant but this book was even better. Getting to know Dig and understand him was so good and I felt I needed it. I actually feel so much h for these characters it's crazy I think I mite be goin a lil mad. I luv Miller he is everything you want in a hot biker but Dig just has more. Once I got a few pages into this book I knew I would luv hi [...]

    5. Yeah, so Ms Porter you broke my damn heart!! I bawled my bleedin' eyes out the last couple chapters. I very nearly didn't read this, I was so scared that Grace and Miller's HEA was going to be messed with. What I didn't expect was to fall totally and utterly in love with a dead man. I mean, seriously? Well, I did - head over heels for Dig.I didn't do a re-read of Lock & Key before starting this, and I'm glad I didn't as I think I may have been bored with going over things again. That said, t [...]

    6. How can that rare beautiful be rendered irrelevant, intangible when I still feel so damn much?I can’t even find the words to describe how much I loved this book. Random & Rare is one of those “rare” books that I actually read slowly because I just didn’t want the story to end. Sexy, incredibly thrilling, creative, emotional, uplifting – this book has it all. I really didn’t think anything could match the power and beauty in Lock & Key but the author did it again.Cat Porter is [...]

    7. 4 Wildflower Stars Random & Rare is the second book in the Lock & Key series and although I went into this with mixed feeling because after all Dig, Grace's first husband is dead, the story delivered an understanding I didn't realise I needed. We're taken back to where it all began. We not only get to know Dig but also Wreck, Miller's older brother. We get to witness Dig and Miller together in the early days, that painful phone call after Wreck is killed and the day Grace's life changed [...]

    8. "I will either find a way or make one".This book has just moved to FAVORITE status, and that's saying a lot since I read non-stop. My standards are very high and this book exceeded them. Cat Porter, I am a fan for life and your books are on auto-click for me. Ok, deep breath, wipe tears, here we goThis book starts off with Dig. I was initially upset because I prefer my multiple POV to be in the same book in alternating chapters rather that making me feel like I'm re-reading the same story. I lov [...]

    9. Based on other readers approval of Random & Rare I will not discourage you from getting your own copy. There are plenty of fans who absolutely loved it. This is strictly my opinion, my thoughts and feelings regarding the book. Everyone is entitled, including me. You may not share them or even agree with my rating but I ask you be tolerant. Now onto the review.Spoiler Alertspoiler.tI'm angry and outright pissed! I thought Random & Rare was a sequel but its not! Instead its the retelling o [...]

    10. I am 100% completely head-over-heels in love with Dig right now. This is one of the best "original story rewritten from the hero's pov" I've ever read. Porter knocked it out of the park. Not only did we get key scenes from Dig's pov, we also learned about his past, his family, his fears, his guilt. And his love for Grace knows no bounds. It was simply amazing. That kind of love is the reason I read romance novels. Porter also surprises us with a present day continuation of Lock & Key from Gr [...]

    11. JavaGirl's review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsSPOILERS if you have not read book 1 - LOCK & KEY.I loved Cat Porter’s debut novel, LOCK & KEY, and was anticipating reading the next book in the series, a book I assumed would be about another member of the One-Eyed Jacks, but Cat Porter rarely does the expected. RANDOM & RARE is a prequel to LOCK & KEY, told mostly from Dig Quillen’s POV. It’s a different story than the one Grace told in LK, although they certainly [...]

    12. ARC received & read.My review was originally posted on EDGy Reviews as part of a group review - edgyreviews/2015/03/09/ranRandom & Rare takes this story back to when Dig and Grace first met, only from Dig’s POV. First up I thought, what? This is Dig’s story? No, surely not? Had my memory failed me? Was it going to be a paranormal book or had something occurred that we weren’t aware of? Well, needless to say I went into Random and Rare a little confused. I usually read the previous [...]

    13. 5+ Once again Cat Porter will be on my top 10 of the year list. Just WoW!!I would like to thank the person that spurred Cat to write about Dig. You are doing yourself a disservice if you skip this book knowing it is about Dig. I will be the first to admit reading about a character that is gone, or old loves when the new love is in the picture, have never been my favorite. That being said it did not stop me from picking this up at all. Maybe that is because they haven’t been written as well as [...]

    14. This book kind of threw me for a loop's actually a prequel to Lock & Key.We get the POV from Dig who is Grace's first husband and their love is truly something to behold. Dig has been through so much (view spoiler)[when his family was brutally raped and killed while he hid and witnessed everything (hide spoiler)] that it still affects him.At first, he wants to stay away from Grace because he doesn't want to soil her but he just can't resist. Their story ends tragicallyke we knew from the fir [...]

    15. February 2017 --I tried, but I just didn't like this one. I was worried this would be the case. I should have trusted my gut. Others loved it. I just couldn't do the "life after" comfortably.Happy Reading!

    16. 5 "it's up to you to either find a way or make one" stars!I can't do this book justice, I can't do GIF's, meme's, or hot pic's w quotes.what I can do is tell you how amazing this book-this series-is! Who knew a HOT, dirty, sexy, raw and gritty MC story could make me feel so much!"Life's random hits may have brought us pain, but they also gave us rare beauty, rare to lost souls like us. Like when a girl had taken a chance asking a group of bikers to save her sister at a keg party. Like when a tir [...]

    17. Dear Cat: You should have named this book Random and Wrecked because by the end I was sobbing and completely, totally wrecked. I wasn’t sure about a book from Dig’s POV because alternate POV’s aren’t my thing. Plus, Let’s face it, since I’ve read Lock & Key, I knew that it was going to be like watching a movie about the Alamo – it wasn’t going to end well.I see what you were doing though, because Dig’s story needed to be told, and you did it well. I am so glad I sucked it u [...]

    18. Books like these are why I read. Ms. Porter is a master storyteller. She has the amazing ability to take a reader on an unexpected, but completely fulfilling journey. This was Random & Rare.When I started this book, it wasn't what I expected. I thought I'd get a traditional continuation of Miller and Grace, but I'm oh-so-glad I was wrong. The first part of this book is actually Dig's story. He guides us through his journey ultimately leading to his death and Grace's new life with Miller. The [...]

    19. I didn't re-read book 1 and I had forgotten the story. I ended up reading last two chapters of book one to try to remember. I never had a good feeling while reading this one because I didn't remember Grace and Miller's story from the first book. Just a depressing read.

    20. Well this just sucksif I could have made this book last even longer, I would have should have read it slower because damn if it didn't just make me break down and cry with happy tears at the end. This authorOMG can she ever spin a tale that will cause the reader to experience ALL the feelsd you will beg to be put through that torturous ringer over and over again because it is THAT good.Lock & Key blew me away last year when I read it and I loved that it was about an older couple and yet, the [...]

    21. I have a confession; it’s a big one… I DID NOT WANT TO READ THIS STORY! I bought it and it sat on my kindle for weeks. We already knew the fate of Dig from reading Lock & Key. I didn’t want to read a book from Dig’s POV. Finally, I decided to crack it open and I was hooked from the first line. I ended up devouring it in one giant sitting. From the beginning, we are clearly told the fate of Dig (which already we knew from reading the first book). Random & Rare is intense and we le [...]

    22. I lost a little piece of my heart to this book and to Dig.This is his story told from the grave, as he looks back on the love he has for Grace and the events that led him to her and ultimately to his death.I knew this was going to hurt. I DONT EVER do death books but I just couldn't leave so many questions that I had after Lock & Key. Being in Dig's head and getting to know everything that made him tick, all his reasons for his actions , his plotting and planning, and all of those ghosts fro [...]

    23. 4.5*We thought we knew the whole story of Dig, Grace and Miller, but in the second book we are treated to a whole lot of information. The first half of this book is all Dig's perspecrive from the past. It gives a deeper understanding of the man and I found myself really feeling for him and what he endured as a teen. I quite enjoyed his perspective. Even knowing part of what was to come, I was nervous.The second part of the book jumps back to the present with Grace and Miller. Grace is struggling [...]

    24. Dig. I fell in love with you from the very beginning and I loved you to the very end. I will love you forever!! Who would have thought that big bad biker dude would have such a heart of gold? Dig is one of a kind, don't know that another will ever compare. Gracesweet, beautiful Grace. You are the ultimate bad ass chick!!! Not everyone gets the chance at one love of a lifetime, let alone twobut if anyone deserved it, it was you. I wanted to be there and hang out with you and the Jack's, see the l [...]

    25. Five Stars"Life's random hits may have brought us pain, but they also gave us rare beauty, rare to lost souls like us."Random & Rare is Lock & Key Book 2 and the first half is told in Dig's POV of his time with Grace and in the club. It touches the parts we know but goes in depth on dealing with the club we had no idea that was going on in Lock & Key. The second half is really touching. I cried and I don't cry while reading. It takes something big to do that and this book delivers th [...]

    26. ChillingThat epilogue gave me absolute chills. It was d@mn beautiful. This book really comes full circle. I love Dig, I love Miller. Not one more than the other, for one may not be the way it were without the other. Miller kept Dig an honest man so to speak in the early days, and Dig looks out for Miller and Grace in the afterlife. Grace is one lucky, but tough, woman. She gets not 1, but TWO, great loves in her life. Though she pays dearly for them. None-the-less, lucky girl. Did I mention that [...]

    27. 5 stars - I recommend to read book 1, Lock & Key first thoughWhat a fantastic book - dark, violent, crazy, tragic, real emotion, but with such love and passion blended in. I loved it, what a journey for these amazing characters. I am really enjoying this series, I couldn't read it quick enough and I loved how the past with Dig, Wreck, Butler and others was tied in with the twists and turns of the present day life of Grace and Miller.The first half is from the past and told from Dig's POV, wh [...]
