Genres: Contemporary Romance
This is one mistake Sienna Landry can’t buy her way out of.
As Walker Gibson looks at her, then at the damage to his precious truck (that she may or may not have accidentally inflicted), she knows she’s in trouble. It’s not the busted headlight and dented grill that’s sunk her though. It’s the downright sinful man in front of her that’s the problem.
The small town mechanic is broody. Rough. Smells like engine grease and gasoline and Sienna isn’t sure why that’s so sexy, but it is. It so is. She’s ready to peel off her panties at the drop of his wrench.
He wants her too. She can feel it when he brushes against her. Experience it as he presses her against the wall of the shop. It’s thinly veiled in his deep, brown eyes when he looks at her like she’s everything he’s ever wanted. So why won’t he give in?
The damage to Walker’s truck is the first of many mistakes between the two of them, ending with truths that rock Sienna’s world. Nothing can fix her broken heart except the love of a man that won’t, maybe even can’t, love her back.
Crank 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.
Crank is sublime. This is my first book by Adriana Locke and it will most definitely not be my last. I couldn’t get enough of this story and can’t wait for Craft to release in January.
“I want ripped jeans, nights with whiskey slurring, and laughing with no regard to who is taking a picture.”
Sienna, whom you’ve met in Landry series, comes from a powerful white collar family and is ready to stay out of the lime light. She is sassy and assertive. I could see myself hanging out with her and being besties. Walker is a broody, hot and cold mechanic that is irresistible in a way that you will do anything you can to make him smile.
The tension in Crank was high as Walker and Sienna danced around each other in a battle of wits. Even as Walker was doing everything he could to hate Sienna he just kept getting pulled into her orbit.
“While I was never the little girl that wanted to go to out space, I’ll sign up for this ride just to see what it’s like.”
My favorite aspect of this story was the bond between Walker and his family and the small town. I adored Peck, his cousin, and his Nana. I loved the people we met coming into Crank and the relationship that Sienna built with them in such a short time.
I even enjoyed the crazy drama I could sense coming on! Crank is the first story in the Gibson Boys Series and I can’t wait to see all of them get their happily ever after.
