Release Day Blitz and Review - SWING by Adriana Locke

Title: Swing
Series: Landry Family #2
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 19, 2016


Screw him and his perfect stats.
Sinful smirk.
Delicious body.
Lincoln Landry probably even has game-winning stamina.

I’d like to screw her and her perfect ass.
Dangerous curves.
Sweet smile.

Danielle Ashley probably even has a game-changing personality. 

There’s no denying the chemistry between them. It’s so fiery, it’s undeniable. They partake in it. Enjoy it.
They really enjoy it.
Attraction is not a problem. Nor is their banter, relationship status, or habits. That’s all fine. Perfect, actually.
The problem is as tangled up as their sheets.

A STANDALONE romantic comedy from USA Today Bestselling author Adriana Locke.

The bell chimes as the front door closes behind me. I’m to my car in record speed. I need space. I need air. I need to think. When my phone buzzes right before I pull out of the parking lot, I know it’s Pepper and she’s not going to quit until I give her something to occupy her mind. 

“Fine!” I nearly shout into the phone. “His cock is about ten inches, if I’m guessing, and he fucked me in about every position I could explain. My favorite, though, was the corkscrew. Not sure what that is? Google it.” 

My finger goes to swipe off the call when I see the name on the screen and drop the phone. “Shit!” I cry, digging through the items on my passenger’s side floorboard until I find the glowing device. 

My heart is pounding as I try to decide whether to end the call or talk to Lincoln. Mortified, I bring it to my ear and squeeze my eyes shut. He’s silent. 

Maybe he didn’t hear. Please, God, don’t let him have heard that. 

“Hello?” I eke out.

“I’d say ten inches is fair and I’ve made a note about the corkscrew. Glad I called,” he chuckles.

Ahhh Lincoln Landry, what a hot and sexy ball player that will make you drool. Too bad his ego is bigger than his head. But, it seems Danielle Ashley is the one who he will break all his rules for.

In book one, Sway, we met Lincoln who saved the day for his brother Barrett.  Barrett, knowing nothing about baseball, needed Lincoln to entertain Huxley, the son of Alison, who he was trying to date and spend more time with. I immediately loved Lincoln in that book because he took Huxley under his wing and treated him like a friend and not a child.

In the first book, it ended with Lincoln not knowing his future in sports due to an injury, and this book picks up right after that. He finds out his fate, and with the help of therapy, he hopes to be back in the game.

I felt so bad for Lincoln because you could tell playing ball is his life, until he crosses paths with Danielle on his way to therapy.  There is immediate sexual tension that you can feel seeping out of the pages.  Once he laid eyes on her, he was hooked and knew he wanted her.  But, Lincoln has always been a player in more ways than one, and his bed was never cold.  Seeing Danielle made him feel things he never thought he could, and that’s one thing I loved about him.  He opened his heart, and besides seeing the funny and silly sides of him, you see he really has a heart of gold. He’s so tender at times, and I couldn’t help but adore him.

Getting closer to Danielle seems so easy for him because who wouldn’t want him? However, Danielle’s always had one rule to never date a ball player. So Lincoln has his work cut out for him in changing her mind.  He definitely isn’t a quitter because he is definitely wooing her in this book.  Just when things change for Lincoln and his life is heading back on track, his future comes face to face with Danielle’s past, and it could destroy everything they have worked so hard for. 

“I want to lock you down.  Be there to make you smile.  Make you mad.  Make sure you’re protected and know how awesome you are.” - Lincoln

I must say I was quite shocked because I had no idea what was behind her not wanting to date Lincoln, and I loved how Adriana made that different than most books.  The characters are easy to love and really down to earth.  I enjoyed seeing all of the Landry brothers because these guys believe in family and have such a close bond.  As with Sway, this book is another hit (pun intended) for me.  This book is a 4 star read and please bring me another Landry man!
