Book Review: Swink (Landry Family #5) by Adrianna Locke

Goodreads Synopsis: 

I’m that guy.

Camilla Landry rustles against me, the silky fabric of her overpriced lingerie slipping along my bruised rib. The porcelain perfection of her skin is even more innocent against the colorful ink dotting my own. It’s demure meets damaged, pampered meets punctured.

So, yeah, it’s obvious I’m that guy. Dominic Hughes. Her attempt at rebellion. Her bid to see what the other side of the tracks feel like. I’m okay with being used because, from where I’m sitting, the other side of the tracks have never looked so good.


Chick and Brain Rating 5 out of 5

I have received this ARC in exchange for an honest review

Yet again I am blown away by the amazing writing of Adrianna Locke! You would never know this was a series other than from the information on the cover. Locke’s incredible writing talent has floored us once again with this story of a family that although over bearing has everyone’s best interest at heart, even people who are not a part of it yet.

Swink focuses on the youngest Landry sibling Camilla and Dominic. Dominic is not someone who Camila can bring home to meet the family, they are from two different worlds. Camila is from money, and Dominic is a blue-collar worker whose family has questionable history. Being that youngest sibling, Camilla has been protected by her siblings her entire life to the point that they are possibly even a little controlling, but her relationship with Dom is not something they can control. Dominic and Camila soon reach a point when they realize that their relationship has grown into something more, but can they both forget where they came from in order to reach their happily ever after?

Locke continues the Landry series with two well written characters with an instant and heated connection. Dominic and Camila are different but also desperately need one another in order to survive. There is a passion between these two characters that we can feel jump off the pages of this story though Locke’s words. Although these two are destined to not have met, they will fight with everything they have in order to maintain the love they have for one another.

Swink is said to be the last story in the Landry series, and Locke sure chose to go out with a bang! This is everything I could have hoped for in an ending.


Until next time,
