Series Reading Order

Loved !!!! Machlan and Hadley had me fully invested in their story. Crave is a bit of a love/hate/second chance romance and Machlan and Hadley’s story is emotional with some angst that has me torn up. I’ll admit there were definitely times in this book where I wanted to throat punch Machlan for his decisions or lack there of. And my heart completely bled for Hadley. The connection with these two was strong and it ran deep. I love when I feel things immediately for a couple and it definitely happened in this book very early on. I flove Machlans alpha male tendencies even when he had no right at times to try and lay down the law. Of course we get to see characters from previous books in this series along with Nana and Peck. I freaking love Nana and Peck provides the comic relief especially during some intense moments between Machlan and Had. Continue to love this series and I absolutely can’t wait for Peck’s story. I’m super excited to see what Adriana Locke has in store for him. Fantastic read that will give you the feels.

Hadley Jacobs is over Machlan Gibson. Sure, she’ll always be a little weak to the dimple in his right cheek and the way his five o’clock shadow makes him ruggedly handsome. But that’s not enough to cover every other thing about him because they all drive her nuts. Like how he won’t admit he’s wrong even when he knows it and how he drives his stupid car a million miles an hour on wet asphalt. As she rolls back into town and takes a seat at Crave, she won’t take the bait. She’s over him. Mostly. Machlan isn’t over her. It’s not because he hasn’t tried. He reminds himself over and over that she’s not the girl for him. After all, she drives him insane with her sassy attitude and the way she calls him out on everything. She beats him at poker, even though she doesn’t know the difference between a straight and a flush, and when she looks at him with her bright, blue eyes, it’s unnerving. When she climbs onto that bar stool and orders a drink, he puts it in front of her and ignores the sparkle in her eyes. He’s not over her, but she won’t know that. But she does know that. And he knows she’s not as over him as she’s pretending to be. When life forces their hand this time, there’s more on the line than a pile of poker chips. It’s their forever. Crave is a standalone romance in a new small town, blue-collar series from USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke. Join readers everywhere as they fall in love with the delicious Gibson Boys.
