REVIEW: Craft by Adriana Locke

Review - Craft by Adriana Locke

Craft was an absolutely sweet, charming and swoon worthy read. I loved this storyline. The banter back and forth between Lance and Mariah was amazing. They are enemies but not quite and I loved that. The way they sparred and joked was so flirtatious and really sweet. Lance comes off as a bit cocky but his cockiness is witty and flirtatious. Mariah gives it right back with her refusal to give in to his advances although she doesn’t shut him down either. I loved how this storyline progressed and how they become friends a bit at first. I could feel the chemistry brewing and I was so giddy with excitement. There are a few hiccups they encounter and a revelation specifically that had my heat breaking while at the same time had me fall more in love with this story. There’s enough angst in this book but not too much and watching it all unfold had me desperate to see how things would end up. Of course I can’t forget some of the supporting cast as we do get to see a bit of the other men in this some that still have stories to come which I can’t wait for by the way. And I absolutely can’t not mention nana who I absolutely love. I love this series so far and can’t wait for the next one. If you love to read romances that have a great buildup and will make your heart just melt then his is a definite must read.

Title: Craft Series: The Gibson Boys #2 Author: Adriana Locke Genre: Contemporary Romance Release Date: March 14, 2018

They’re not quite enemies. Not really friends. More like frustrated balls of sexual tension and neither will give in. Lance Gibson drives Mariah Malarkey absolutely crazy. He uses her office like a phone booth, takes cupcakes from the corner of her desk like she baked them just for him. She didn’t. Maybe she knew the history teacher happened to love peanut butter icing, but that was purely a coincidence. All sixteen times. Mariah has a way of getting under Lance’s skin too. She calls him out on his crap, spoils him even if inadvertently, and seeing the librarian in skirts drives him wild. She won’t give in. It’s for the best, really, considering there’s no way he could lie to a woman like that and he’s not about to tell her the truth about himself. Not in a million years. These two don’t hate each other. They don’t really like each other. But for this to be a friends-to-lovers story, they have to start somewhere, right? Note: This can be read as a standalone novel.
