New Jessica Hawkins release with 5 Star Review




Title: Something in the Way
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2017



It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents’ house. Under the sweat and dirt, Manning Sutter was as handsome as the sun was bright. He was older, darker, experienced. I wore a smiley-face t-shirt and had never even been kissed. Yet we saw something in each other that would link us in ways that couldn’t be broken...no matter how hard we tried.

I loved Manning before I knew the meaning of the word. I was too young, he said. I would wait. Through all the carefully-chosen words hiding what we knew to be true, through his struggle to keep me innocent, and through infinitely-starry nights—I would wait. But I’d learn that life isn’t always fair. That no matter how much you achieve, none of it matters if you suffer the heartbreak that comes with falling for someone you can never have. Because even though I saw Manning first, that didn’t matter. My older sister saw him next.

Can you think back to a time in your life where things were still innocent and questions were still thought out after you jumped feet first into life? Can you remember what it felt like to be young and being punched in the gut with feelings you couldn’t understand when you found yourself crushing on a boy for the first time? Imagine if that boy was actually 7 years older than you.


This is what happened to star student, the good daughter, the sister who has it easier, sweet Lake who is 16 when Manning the construction worker next door catches her eye. On a level bordering soul searching, Manning and Lake forge a relationship that starts off as a big brother/ little sis way but we can quickly see the transgression into something more. A something that Manning tries so hard to keep innocent but it takes every ounce of willpower he has to do so. A something that Lake nurtures from her naivety into a world of emotions that are foreign and way too grown up for her to comprehend.


Then comes Lake’s older sister, Tiffany. Fast paced in all avenues of her life, Tiffany just doesn’t measure up in her eyes and is still young enough to harbor resentment and love equally for her younger sister. But when Tiffany sees the sweaty, buff, brooding Manning on the work site, making him hers becomes a game for Tiffany to play. A game she feels necessary to win in order to gain some kind of attention from her dad. But ultimately may start to have actual feelings for Manning.


A love triangle that’s really not complete, Jessica Hawkins drops us readers off into the old world of the 1990’s were the forbidden, taboo thought of getting the older guy’s attention is exhilarating and the quest for acceptance is out of reach. Something in the Way is a romance, but it’s also a story that begins with 3 people and the choices they make and the consequences of those choices. While reading you will experience a full range of emotions from aggressions, to pity;  being intrigued with what’s going to happen next, empathizing with unspeakable hurt only to find yourself forgetting the details that make Something in the Way illicit and just feeling the emotions evoked at the end of each chapter.


Be careful while reading, you may find yourself screaming at your very own forgetfulness that this is only book 1 of this series that’s going to shake readers to their core. We have so much more to learn.

Right about now if you were to head over to Amazon.com and search for Adriana Locke and her newest Amazon Bestselling release, Switch, you would see 250+ reviews that say how much the readers are loving this new standalone story within a family series. Graham Landry is the hot CEO that'll melt your heart and my new favorite Book Boyfriend! 😍
So keep scrolling, soak in the words, and #oneclick this baby!! You're about to find out what it takes to get under this Landry suit and tie 💖



Title: Switch
Series: Landry Family #3
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: February 20, 2017



Mallory Sims is late for her first day of work.

After spilling her tea, she discovers she has no gas in her car. Add that her arm keeps sticking to her dress from syrup left on the console of her car, flustered feels like an understatement.

Then she sees her new boss.

Graham Landry is the epitome of NSFW in his custom-fit suit, black-rimmed glasses, and a look so stern her libido doesn’t stand a chance. Being flustered is just the start of her problems.

Her punctuality is only the start of his. With a pink slip in hand, he’s been waiting on his new secretary to show up only to let her go. Then she rushes in with her doe eyes and rambling excuses, smelling like bacon and lavender. The termination paper falls to the side as she falls in his arms.

This is a disaster in the making. Not because of his pinpoint exactness or her free spirit, but because when they’re together, the sparks that fly threaten to burn the whole place down.

Her skin is pale and creamy, a soft framework for the deep chestnut hair cascading across her shoulders. A dress the color of moss in the summer showcases toned arms and a long, lean line from her shoulders to her calves. A thin rope belt cinches her trim waist, one that I can imagine digging my fingers into.

I clear my throat. “Can I help you?”

With something besides getting out of that dress?

“I think you probably can,” she breathes, then blushes a pretty shade of pink. “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it like that. What I mean is …”

She’s flustered. It’s adorable and sexy at the same time. I should say something, interject, help her out, but I don’t. I like this entirely too much.

“I’ll stop talking now.” She flashes me a pretty smile, one that catches my attention in ways it shouldn’t at eight-sixteen a.m. Taking a step towards me, the toe of her shoe catches on the water bottle she didn’t pick up and she comes barreling my way.

Before I know what’s happening, I reach out and catch her under a spray of loose leaf paper.

“Omph!” she heaves as she lands in my arms and I’m surrounded by a sweet, earthy scent.

I should let her go. I should back away, direct her to the front desk to get directions to wherever she’s going, and retreat to my office. Regardless of how sexy her breasts feel pressed against me or the way her ass pops as my fingers lace together at the dip at the bottom of her spine, I have things to do today. Important things. Lots of them. Even if I can’t pinpoint one at the moment.

Large, nearly golden-colored eyes peer up at me. They’re crystal clear, almost like I can see all the way to the depths of her soul. They’re incredible tones of the purest gold and I can’t look away.

The feel of her body against mine sparks something inside me—a carnal, visceral reaction that’s led by feeling rather than intellect. “Are you okay?” I ask, trying desperately to use the brainpower I’m known for in most circles and not the cock I’m known for in others.

“I think so.” She pulls her gaze away from mine. A connection is actually snapped between us and I’m almost certain she feels it too because her features fall. “I’m just running late …”

Hell. Fucking. No.

I’m afraid to ask the next question. If the answer is what I think it is, I’m going to kill my little sister.

I can’t even begin to express just how excited I was to finally have Graham Landry’s story land in my hands.  It has been forever waiting to get to his book!! Well really it has only been a few months but in book time that’s like 10 million days!! BUT, while reading these words it felt as if time stood still. I couldn’t be more satisfied as a reader with Switch. I was given a story that kept on unfolding layers until the swoony end.

Graham Landry. The G man. The brooding brother. The brother who doesn’t miss a beat. The one who carries the Landry family on his shoulders, and he does it with pride. The Landry that makes no room for error and always has a solid backup plan to the backup plan for everything in life, and his life is Landry Holdings. Graham manages the family fortune as well as the break apart side family business adventures that each sibling endeavors. He is fast passed and controls it all with finesse until his life is cracked and the ever reliable Executive Assistant he has quits on him. Trying to find someone to replace the unreplaceable that helps him keep his ducks in a row, he goes through multiple applicants unsuccessfully until the ever fateful day Mallory Sims falls into his office at the request of Graham’s sister Sienna. The moment is kismet and definitely starts to unravel Graham and his plans. The spark ignites, it can’t be tucked in, and he has to just find a way to control it.

Mallory Sims has always known the struggle and the hustle. She found out pretty early in life that if she wanted something she had to be the one to get it for herself. Finding herself in a relationship that only broke her spirit and drive for self-success while finally realizing that it was going nowhere fast, Mallory went back to her hometown in Georgia to right the wrongs in her life and make a fresh start. When the golden opportunity of a business job landed in her lap, all Mallory could do was count herself lucky. Little did she know that the sexy CEO that has a laugh that’s “warm and soothing but has a gruffness to it that it reminds her of a five o’clock shadow---just scratchy enough to lend a little rogue that ups the sex appeal by a hundredfold”, would be her kryptonite.

And the rest is Landry history.

Hold on. Let me back up. There are a few things that need to be addressed.

     1.     Graham is MINE. #AllisReadPROPERTY

2.     Getting little windows of information on Graham from the previous Landry Family books, I can say with certainty, that Switch will solidify Graham Landry to be the NEW FAVORITE LANDRY.

3.     He is perfect in a suit and in just a pair of pants.

4.     “Watching” him come undone has been by far the most pleasurable time spent reading that I’ve had since another hot suit donner.

5.     Graham Landry is sexy, delectable, addictive, and couldn’t be a hotter main character if Mallory Sims was not his counterpart. Just let me say “tasting” is an overload of senses.

WHEW! Okay. Carrying on…

If you have been following Adriana Locke or if you are a new reader looking for a great book to just get cozy with, Switch is for you. Switch is a standalone within a series, so it can be read by itself or out of book order, but I urge every reader to read all 3 books in this family series (preferably in sequence) because there is just so much back story within this book as well as the other books that you’ll miss that unique feeling of “knowing” the Landry’s. I have no doubts that readers will love each book.

Switch is just as funny as it is plucking those heart strings with a heavy dose of sex appeal making it the perfect go to romance story. What I liked most about Switch (and the other Landry’s too) is the banter and the family connections. I love that while this is “Graham’s” book, we still see a lot of the family and their dynamics. We as readers are completely injected into a family that you can’t help love but also get those doses of eye rolling from nonsensical siblings like you would get with your own family.

I love that I resonate with the Landry’s. They hold a special place in my heart and I am ready and waiting for what’s to come in the future from this family and Adriana Locke!

Make sure to pick up SWITCH and THE LANDRY’s TODAY if you haven’t already!
