Release Blitz, Review & Giveaway: Swear by Adriana Locke

Title: Swear
Series: Landry Family #4
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Second Chance/Military Romance
Release Date: May 15, 2017


Ellie Pagan has a list of reasons to stay away from Ford Landry.

It’s a mile long and was so much easier to stick to when he was a world away. Now that he’s standing in front of her—body hard and chiseled from a stint in the military, suit cut to perfection, and a smirk she could never resist—remembering all the reasons why just got a whole lot harder. 

Ford gets Ellie isn’t his biggest fan. He just doesn’t care.

Standing in front of him, giving him hell, she’s even prettier than he remembered. All he can think about is how she felt in his arms, the taste of her kiss, the sound of her giggle in the middle of the night. He may not know how to win her back, but he does know this: he may have let her go once, but that’s one mistake he won’t make again.

It’s impossible not to smile that he remembered my drink of choice. It’s also hopeless to pretend that the boyish grin he’s flipping me doesn’t melt away some of the ice around my heart.
Still, I don’t want to play nice.
“I already had coffee today. But thank you,” I say politely.
“No offense, but you are kind of irritable this morning. Maybe you could use another shot of caffeine.”
“You think I’m irritable now? Keep it up.”
“You never were a morning person,” he laughs. “Some things never change.”
“And some things do,” I point out, giving him a look. “Seriously, why are you here?”
“I have business with Violet. Remember?”
“That’s bullshit anyway, but she’s not here. You’ll have to come back later.”
“Is that an invitation?” he laughs.
“Did it sound like one?” My arms cross over my chest and I’m aware it makes my boobs look bigger. As his eyes drop and catch the top of my cleavage, his gaze burns a trail on the ascent back up to my eyes.
Satisfaction paints a smug look on my face and desire burns in the apex of my thighs. As discreetly as possible, I clench my legs together to quell a bit of the ache that’s beginning to throb under his observation.
When our gazes meet, his is crackling. He lifts a single brow. “I damn sure hope that’s an offer to come. If it’s not, we have a problem on our hands.”
“No, you have a problem on your hands,” I say, shrugging. “It has nothing to do with me.”
“It could.”

4.5 Stars for Swear! 

When I knew we were getting Ford’s book I was so excited. I love this family and I love reading their stories. Ford’s story didn’t disappoint. The Landry men continue to blow me away. 

From reading the previous books in this series and seeing Ford appear in those stories I always felt like I knew he had gotten his heart broken and now I know why. Elle is everything that Ford needs in his life. 

Elle is a great heroine. She’s story and independent and it’s obvious that she cares deeply about the people she loves. I found her really relatable throughout the story and all these qualities made me fall in love with her. 

Just as you can expect, Ford is a great hero like his brothers. He’s cocky but not as cocky as his brothers and he has a heart of gold. He’s a 100% nice guy that is easy to fall in love with. These two are so perfect for each other and it’s obvious throughout the book. 

I had a range of emotions while reading this, I was laughing at some points and then crying at others. Adriana Locke has a way of making you feel all the emotions as the characters you’re reading are. She puts you right there in their story making you feel like you’re watching the story unfold before your eyes. 

This story was low on the angst but that didn’t take anything away from it. I thought this was a beautiful story about soul mates that needed a second chance at love.

This is one of those books that drew me in so deep. I couldn’t put the book down and before I knew it I was on chapter 23 and sad that I was over halfway through because I just wanted more of these characters. I am so in love with Ford and Elle. Their story captured me. 

I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves romance. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I’m dying to know the man that has captured Cam’s heart.
