How I love Adriana Locke's writing, I devoured this book in one day I was hooked from the start and could not put it down.  My husband did not get a look at all day.  Trouble was not just the title of the book it was what I was in as well.

The author knows how to write her leading man with so much depth, sexiness show through the pages of this book.  The banter between all the character was wonderful and have a real family/small-town closeness that made you feel a part of the story at times.  This is book three of this series and for most of us that have read them is the one we have been waiting for the most. Penn!!!!

Penn is so swoon-worthy and fun-loving and, Avery is determined and hilarious they are so perfect for each other you can not help but fall in love with them both. Pen...

I think this might just be my favourite Gibson boy book so far, it had me holding my breath at 11 pm at night and you might say that’s not late for us book addicts.  But when your day job has you up at 3 am each morning and you are still glued to your Kindle at that time of night you know you are reading something outstanding and amazing.  Adrianna Locke has given her heart and soul to these characters that we have all fell in love with but Hadley and Machlan’s story was so much more than I ever dreamed it might have been.  A second chance love story that will move you like no other as you fight alongside the character and pray they can find there way back together again.  I totally recommend this book that I received a free copy of and have voluntarily written an honest review.  I love a...

My Review

Why did it end I was so-so… enjoying this book with its sexual tension, humor, great banter and heartfelt story that I just wanted it to keep going.  I have enjoyed all the Gibson boys so far but I must say Lance is becoming my favorite and who can blame me a nerdy history teacher with issues about committing to anyone other than family. This is a friends-to-lovers story that I received as an ARC Copy of and this is my honest and voluntary review of this wonderful book. This book is a standalone novel or you can read it as part of the series.  I was lovely to catch up with some of the other characters and learn more about the ones we have met before.  Lance is so much more than what we got from “Grank” his layers are deeper t...

This novella is in the Team Player: A sports Romance anthology but Cross is part of “The Gibson Boys” series by Adriana Locke.  I loved this short novella and wanted so much more about these characters then this story gave me I did not want it to end.  I can’t wait until book 2 of this series comes out and hope we get a bit more about Cross and Kallie.  This is a second chance story set in a small town where Cross has been hoping and waiting for the day that she may just return to see how he has changed his life for the better.  If you have not read “Crank” the first book you can still read this one first.

The author gives you sweet and loving characters with all the chemistry and heat you need to fall in love with this story as the Gibson boys series continues.

This is the first book of the new series by Adriana Locke “Crank” of the “The Gibson Boys” and I cannot express how much I enjoyed this book.  Right from the beginning I was hooked and engrossed in the lives of the Gibson boys, wanting to learn more about them and the women that may be about to make them men.  If you have not read any of this author before you will not be familiar with the Landry family but for the ones that have read the series about the Landry family you will be right at home.  This book can be read a stand-alone as any back history has not strong story plot in this book; it’s just a crossover of some of our loved characters from other books.  I love Walker he a man of few words that those words use can make him come across as broody and cranky and very sarcastic to Sien...

OMG this sexy but sweet book hooked me right in and I could not put it down but I did have to go to work.  It even had me thinking about what was going to happen while I was at work as I was fully sucked into this story about Layla and Branch.  I have never wanted an HEA so much as I did in this book with the chemistry between the two at a very high level of humor and sassiness mixed in.  The author knows how to give her character so much depth which makes you love them and want to explore more about them.

Branch Best is a professional football player with the Player being the word.  He is best friends with Finn Miller his team mate and his bromance.  Finn is taking him away for the weekend as training is about to start soon and they can have a bit of fun b...
