SWAY (Landry family #1) by Adriana Locke
•Insecurities
Sway is WOW no other way to put it other than WOW!!! I absolutely loved it! I was on the edge of my seat wondering how Barrett’s gubernatorial election would turn out, as well as how Alison would continue to react to it with the issues of her past. Once again Adriana weaves another story that you cannot put down, let alone turn pages fast enough to see what happens next! Now we sit and wait for her next installment of a wonderful, albeit sexy, hot as hell, loving family that goes ALL IN with everything they have in them not only as an individual but as a family….. The TOTAL PACKAGE! I canNOT wait for SWING, Lincoln’s story.
Barrett Landry the Mayor of Savannah (aka the Most Eligible Bachelor) is running neck and neck in the gubernatorial race against Homer Hobbs. He’s trying to play the game against people who have no rules. He makes women swoon over him without even trying he’s just that sexily hot. Politics equals power, but it also equals fortune, a bit of fame, and a lot of women, and these men take full advantage of it all, including Landry. That is until he meets Alison, the one woman who wants to run from him instead of killing each other to get a chance to be with him.
Alison’s a single mother who’s working two jobs to take care of her son, but also going to school for journalism. After working her ass off to pay her now ex husbands way through school, he said she was nothing and beneath him as soon as he became a judge. She’s determined to support her son on her own, she won’t be swayed by any man. Then she’s face to face with Barrett Landry, who’s this crazy mix of power and sexiness, it almost makes her high. His smile makes her knees go weak, the air between them crackles, his voice’s like being wrapped in a warm blanket, but his touch makes her body shiver. Alison tries to remind herself he’s only a man, but he’s still another politician!
But when they’re alone he’s different, he relaxes. It’s like he TRUELY sees her. But is he sincere or is it all to advance his political career? How will Alison’s son be affected by this, what are his thoughts? You’ll have to read SWAY to find out, but it’ll be worth the time you take to read it! Due to explicit sexual content and adult language this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older. I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review!

SWING (Landry Family #2) by Adriana Locke
• One step at a time
Lincoln definitely met his match with Danielle, and she with him. I love their back and forth banter from the get go. You just can’t help but laugh along while reading. All the baseball analogies and innuendos are hilariously funny, BUT with a seriousness too!
Adriana weaves yet another story that you cannot put down, let alone turn pages fast enough to see what happens next! Now we sit and wait for her next installment of a wonderful, albeit sexy, hot as hell, loving family that goes ALL IN with everything they have in them not only as an individual but as a family….. The TOTAL PACKAGE! I canNOT wait for SWITCH, Graham’s story that’ll be next. Due to explicit sexual content and adult language this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older.
Favorite Passages~
• I follow her, like a puppy looking for someone to play with. At least I’m not drooling . . . I don’t think . . . but I probably am panting. I need played with. What can I say? (Oh SOOOOO Lincoln!)
• Like when we aren’t together, the world is ending. Because if we aren’t together, maybe it has.”
—-

SWITCH (Landry Family #3) by Adriana Locke
• Vows
Another amazing Landry Family story. The emotion throughout will keep your fingers itching to turn to the next page to read what happens next….. Talk about the wedding of a lifetime… Make sure tissues are at the ready (it’s awesome), but I’m not saying who’s wedding it is…. Sorry that’s give up too much info, but it’s SOOOO worth the time to read it to find out!
This may be the 3rd story in Landry Family series, but it could be read as standalone story. I prefer to read them in order to find the hidden gems within each new story,o and oh boy are they in each one…. Definitely worth it to read the entire series so far….I cannot wait to read SWEAR (Ford’s story). I don’t know how Adriana does it, but I’m glad she does and can’t wait for what’s next.
Graham focuses only on work… Well he did until his sister sets him up with a friend from high school for as new executive assistant that he desperately needs. Mallory knocks his world off kilter, something he’s DEFINITELY NOT used to. Mallory on the other hand needs a fresh start… This job seems like the perfect solution, until she stumbles into the office later her first day. Can they figure out how to work together? Gotta read SWITCH to find out. Due to explicit sexual content and adult language this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older.
Favorite Passages ~
• “Desperation is the name of the game.”
• …I have no plan for this. I have no clue how to navigate this minefield.
• “You can get up every day and decide what you are going to accomplish, what goals you’re going to work towards. Think about that. Every morning is an opportunity to change what you aren’t happy with.”
• …Do something that your soul tells you to.”
• “You little rascals. I don’t care if you’re married or not. We’re going to talk about this!”
—-

SWEAR (Landry Family #4) by Adriana Locke
• 2nd Chance
When you read SWEAR… Me oh my….. It’s an amazing story of second chances and family…. Well what can you say about the Landry boys… This is Ellie and Ford’s story (with the rest of the family thrown in for an added bonus of course). Ford broke her heart almost 10 years ago, will she ever let him in again? Ford finds out Ellie is back in town thanks to his brother Graham’s Mallory’s meddling (setting him up on blinddates), but once he learns she’s back…. Game on….. Well if she’ll allow it! You’ll have to read SWEAR to find out. Just remember you’ll need tissue toward the end….. But OH SO worth it!
Adriana has done it again, this story just keeps pulling you in farther and farther. Now I can’t wait to see when SWINK will be available…… Another hook, line, and sinker, I’m snared in the net….. And love it!! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book via the author. Due to sexual content this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older!
Favorite Passages ~
• “Come hell or high water, I’m going to make her mine again. Just you wait and see.”
• “Who you are and whose you are”
• …hallmark of a strong family, Ford, is one that allows its members to grow and learn. And not just when they’re babies. Sometimes the hardest life lessons are learned when we’re adults.”
• “Just how I need to remember that when storms roll in, how beautiful the rainbow is going to be.”

Welcoming the Bad Boy
Hero’s Welcome #3
By: Annie Rains
Released August 2, 2016
Loveswept

Blurb

From the bestselling author of Welcome to Forever (“Full of heart and emotion!”—Lori Wilde) comes a sweet, sexy novel about breaking all the rules. In Seaside, North Carolina, the boys on the base are heroes—but that doesn’t mean they’re always well-behaved.

As a preacher’s daughter, Valerie Hunt only dates the very respectable, very boring men who meet her father’s strict standards. In private, however, she leads a double life as a romance writer of steamy stories about the least respectable sorts of men. Valerie has always kept her hottest fantasies separate from her real life, but when she nearly runs a hot-blooded biker off the road, the lines begin to blur.

Even though Valerie almost killed him, Griffin Black can’t be angry after he learns the reason for her distracted driving: an unruly puppy belonging to her ailing friend. As a member of the military police K-9 unit, Griffin insists on training the dog himself. But he soon wonders how he’s ever going to stay disciplined around the most alluring, down-to-earth, and totally unattainable woman he’s ever met. Valerie is the ultimate good girl. And Griffin is going to need all his old tricks to unleash her wild side.

image
EXCERPT~

Her body slid behind his, spooning him. She wrapped her arms around his torso, clutching him tight, and he took off down the road. The rain beat against his skin, attempting to cleanse him, but there was no wiping away the dirty thoughts going through his mind. He took the long way back to his place to feel her against him longer, and to try to wrangle his desire so he wouldn’t be tempted to take her straight to bed when they arrived.

He slowed to a stop behind a stop sign and glanced over his shoulder to look at her. Her hand slid down from his waist and into the front of his jeans. Fuck. He’d heard preachers’ daughters were wild, but he’d thought it was a myth. With her hand snug against him he turned left and pressed the gas, heading home. Trooper was waiting. And he needed to get his mouth on this woman, to kiss her stupid and hope her hands continued exploring.

He pulled into his driveway and helped her off as the rain began to fall harder. She didn’t squeal and run toward his covered porch the way some women would. Instead, she stared at him as he lifted the helmet off her head. She didn’t flinch as her shirt began to stick to her in all the right places. He leaned toward her, cupping his hands around her face and leading her mouth to his. She melted against him, sealing her wet body to his. Damn. Her lips were soft, the kiss hungry, devouring him like he was the best thing she’d put in her mouth all day.

“I want you,” he said, pulling back from her mouth, but continuing to hold her. The words were meant to be a warning. “I want you so fucking much.” He half expected her to slap him. They barely knew each other. She had a wild streak and a smart mouth, but overall he thought she was the good-girl type. Not the type to give herself so easily. Even if he could’ve sworn she was ready the other night.

“Take me inside,” she said, going up on her toes and kissing him again, wrapping her hands around the back of his head, pressing her body tighter against him. “We’re getting wet out here.”

The rain. She was talking about the rain. A nice guy would escort her inside and help her get dried off. Which was exactly what he intended to do. But he didn’t plan on stopping there.

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: WRITTEN IN THE SCARS
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 20, 2016

image
BLURB

Falling in love is easy.

Falling out of love is the hardest thing in the world.

And Elin and Ty Whitt are terrible at it.

The first time the local basketball star smiled at Elin, she was a goner. It was just so damn easy to fall for the dark-haired hometown hero with his charming smile and strong, athletic build.

Thousands of sleepy smiles, aimless drives down country roads, and squeaks of the backdoor after a swing shift later, reality hits. And it hits hard. Falling in love was definitely the easy part. Watching it break apart was impossible.

Through the tears, the second-guesses, the memories of a life built together, the world keeps spinning. With each turn comes clarity and hope—sometimes in the form of a pair of muddy boots by the back door or from the words of a wise friend.

When Ty shows back up with a new found determination to put his family back together, Elin’s torn between the fights of the past and the possibility of a new start. This is the man that holds her heart, the man she loves beyond anything else. But this is also the one person in the world that can cause her the most pain.

Life’s not always easy. Love’s not for the faint of heart. But with life comes lessons and Ty and Elin have the scars to prove it. But it’s their love written in those scars that will hold them together … or break them apart.

EXCERPT~
I pull her into me, trying to put her, me, our life back together with my embrace. Her arms find my waist, and I hold her in the middle of the driveway, swaying back and forth in a moment I’ll never, ever forget. The feeling of my world careening back into focus, into the places it should be, nearly drops me to my knees with my girl in my arms.
“I should go in,” she says, looking up at me.
“It’s cold in there.”
She shrugs and I see her start to slip away from me again. Frantic, I struggle to find a way to stop it.
“Let’s go for a drive,” I suggest.
She looks at me warily.
“It’s just a drive,” I promise. “The house can warm up and then I’ll drop you back off, if that’s what you want. What can it hurt?”
“You won’t try to make out with me or anything, right?” she teases. “Because I know that look in your eye, Tyler Whitt.”
“Only if you ask,” I wink, opening the door to my truck and watching her climb in. Before I shut it, I lean in and whisper into her ear. “Hey, E.”
“Yeah?”
“Please ask.”

Now we sit and wait for her next installment of a wonderful, albeit sexy, hot as hell, loving family that goes ALL IN with everything they have in them not only as an individual but as a family…..

BARRETT LANDRY has it all.
Power, prestige, and plenty of women, the dapper politician’s life is pretty phenomenal. But in the midst of the biggest campaign of his life, he needs to focus. The last thing he can afford is a distraction.

ALISON BAKER is a work-in-progress.
As a single mother to HUXLEY, she’s rebuilding life on her terms. She’s focused on family, faith, and a future for her son that can’t be taken away. Putting her child first means not being careless, no matter what.

A chance encounter forces Barrett and Alison to redefine what they really want out of life. But everything comes at a cost … and sometimes, even for love, it’s a price too steep to pay.

Smooth. Sexy. Irresistible.

Brynne Calloway knows that anything that seems too good to be true usually is. Fenton Abbott and his cashmere voice, Adonis body, and a magnetism like no other clearly falls into that category. But what’s life without a little risk?

It was supposed to be a rebound, an uncomplicated escape from reality. But nothing ever goes as planned. Fenton turns out to be so much more … in ways Brynne never sees coming.

The blankets rip away and Presley jumps off the side. “You need to be more instinctive. Fenton is not going to give you swoon regret.”
“Swoon regret? Seriously?”
“It happens,” she sighs. “I swooned over this rocker guy once. Hot and sexy and a voice—not cashmere, but more like whiskey—and in the morning, I regretted my swoon. He wasn’t that cute in the daylight and he had a smoker’s cough, two things I didn’t see in the strobe lights of the bar.”
Laughing, I climb out of bed, too. “Want to watch a movie?”
“Let’s order Italian and watch Netflix.”
“I’m not really hungry. Just get me some breadsticks.”
“Is that some Freudian slip?” Presley laughs.
“Probably,” I say, shaking my head and realizing I might be a little more affected than I even realize.

EXCERPT:

The plane begins its ascent, the engines roaring to life. Fenton whips out a file from his briefcase and gives it a once-over. Again, I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do and it’s killing me.
I pull my Kindle out of my bag and try to become invested in a second-chance romance about a rock star, but it’s nearly impossible sitting next to him. Each time I become engrossed in the words, he moves and my senses are assaulted by his proximity. The third time this happens, I search the ebook for ‘cock’ and start reading a sex scene. I need some form of undoing and if that has to be done via fictional character, so be it.
The heroine is taking the hero into her mouth when a low rumble radiates beside me. Startled, I look up and see Fenton smirking.
“What?” I push the power button on my e-reader and place it on my lap. I realize the jet has leveled off and it’s quiet in the cabin. “What are you looking at me like that for?”
“Just wondering what you’re reading.”
“Why?”
“Because,” he says, his eyes darkening, “your entire posture changed. Your lips parted, your breathing became labored. I’m intrigued.”
“I don’t think you’d be interested in this.”
“Trust me—if it gets that kind of reaction out of you, I’m definitely interested.”
Dragging in a lungful of air, I remember Presley’s pep talk and decide I have nothing to lose.
I switch on the tablet and find the page. “She drew his cock into her mouth, stroking his shaft as she licked a pool of semen from the tip.” I glance over my shoulder and his eyes are wide. I wink. “A growl escaped his throat as she stroked his velvety length, running her tongue—”
“Enough.” He snatches the Kindle from my grasp and places it on his briefcase. “Fucking hell, Brynne. Do you want fucked right here?”

MY REVIEW:

•Can true love survive pain?

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review!
I just finished reading Wherever It Leads by Adriana Locke. As usual with her books once I start reading, it has to be almost life or death for me to put the book down! I read until I fall asleep, more like doze off, but as soon as I’m awake I am reading again! This book is exceptional! I laughed, cried, stressed and loved along with Brynne and Fenton through out the book. Brynne lost her phone and has no idea where! She and her best friend Presley have tore their place apart looking for it. Brynne’s stressed completely because it has mementos of my life, pictures, texts from her brother… And she hasn’t backed it up! *My music, notes, my entire life is recorded on that stupid. Little. Phone.* what is she doing to do?!
Fenton finds Byrne’s phone in an unusual place, and couldn’t tear his eyes away from her picture. When Fenton called her best friend Presley saying he found her friends phone, both ladies were excited to go get it! To say the meeting is shocking is an understatement. Presley is used to all men paying her attention but Fenton not being rude about it but pretty much ignored her. Brynne and Fenton fall for each other pretty much on first sight. They are both frightened about how they feel, but happy at the same time. So what happens to crush that, and can their love love survive it? You’ll have to read it to find out.
Favorite quote~ ** love blurs things and I get that now. It makes things that were once important not so much anymore. It makes things that might’ve been on the back burner now the most important thing in the world. It reinvigorates you, puts passion back into your work. It refills your tank, pours fuel into your reserves and with it, you realize how many holes you had draining it.**
🔞⚠️⛔️Due to explicit sexual content and adult language this novel is recommend for readers 18 and older. 🔞⚠️⛔️

The Exception Bookaversary

Synopsis:

There are exceptions to every rule …

Jada Stanley is starting over, freeing herself from her past. Following the rules she’s given herself is easy enough, until she meets HIM. He’s gorgeous, cocky, and everything she needs to avoid, but that’s easier said than done.

Cane Alexander has his own set of rules, a plan to keep his life simple and free of complications. But when he sets his sights on Jada, she proves to be a temptation he just can’t resist.

Walls crumble, resolve fades, and precious rules are bent.

They can’t help but take a chance on each other, but chances come with risk. As the past rears its ugly head in ways they never see coming, will they revert back to protecting themselves? Or will they realize that the other is the exception to every rule they’ve ever made?
