Book Review - CRANK by ADRIANA LOCKE
I saw this book all over social media and it peaked my interest. I'll start by saying that this is my first book by Adriana Locke and I am so glad that I requested to read this book. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and especially loved the two main characters in this book. I am all for the broody male characters and Walker definitely fits the bill. I also loved Sienna, she comes from a well to do family but wasn't stuffy and all high and mighty. She was very down to earth and I loved that she wanted to venture out on her own and do things her way. The way that these two meet is so cute and extremely funny, I mean the way in which she damages his truck is priceless. I loved their interaction with each other and you could feel the chemistry between them. Walker though always manages to go from hot to cold and it was enough to give me a bit of whiplash. I knew that there was a reason for it and boy when you find out what that is let's just say it leaves you reeling a bit. Just when things are going so well Adriana Locke hits you with a truth bomb that will have you saying OMFG !!!! The side characters in this story, particularly Walker's family are amazing. I loved all of his brothers and especially love his nan. You could feel that the family bond is strong and I love books that have that in them. I'm guessing that this series will have a book for each of the brothers and I'm hoping one of the cousins that appear in this. Now I did come to find out that this is a spin off of her Landry series. I wish I had read that series first as Sienna is from the Landry family and we do get to see some of the characters from those books in this one. Trust that I will be reading that series as well. Overall I absolutely enjoyed this book. I loved the storyline, the characters called to me and their relationship was one that I definitely got invested in from the get go. Definitely would recommend this to others and will absolutely be reading the rest of the books in this series.
This is one mistake Sienna Landry can’t buy her way out of. As Walker Gibson looks at her, then at the damage to his precious truck (that she may or may not have accidentally inflicted), she knows she’s in trouble. It’s not the busted headlight and dented grill that’s sunk her though. It’s the downright sinful man in front of her that’s the problem. The small town mechanic is broody. Rough. Smells like engine grease and gasoline and Sienna isn’t sure why that’s so sexy, but it is. It so is. She’s ready to peel off her panties at the drop of his wrench. He wants her too. She can feel it when he brushes against her. Experience it as he presses her against the wall of the shop. It’s thinly veiled in his deep, brown eyes when he looks at her like she’s everything he’s ever wanted. So why won’t he give in? The damage to Walker’s truck is the first of many mistakes between the two of them, ending with truths that rock Sienna’s world. Nothing can fix her broken heart except the love of a man that won’t, maybe even can’t, love her back.
