Review – Crank by Adriana Locke



Title: Crank

Series: The Gibson Boys #1

Author: Adriana Locke

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Kari March

Release Date: November 10, 2017
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.


My Review:
4 out of 5 stars

The Landry family is always going to hold a special place in my heart, but these Gibson boys as well as their sister Blaire have snagged my attention and I am looking forward to reading more about this family in the future.

First of all, I’m so glad that Sienna finally got her own book. I’ve always loved her character and I loved getting to know her better. She is so sassy, doesn’t back down, and is able to stand up for herself. I love her! I’m going to be honest, and I know that I am in the minority with this, but I just didn’t really care for Walker’s character. He grew on me as the story progressed, but he isn’t one of my favorite characters. Now Peck? I absolutely ADORE him! I hope he will get his own book.

I know I shouldn’t compare this family to the Landry family, because they are their own separate people, but I couldn’t help doing that and feeling like the bond wasn’t as strong with the Gibson boys. I’m definitely looking forward to getting to know the other members of this family though in future books in the series. I love the banter between them and even if they grate on each others nerves, you can still tell that they do love each other.
