Inked Avenue Reviews… “Swear” by Adriana Locke

//Swear by Adriana Locke//


“He’s my weakness. It’s a good thing he doesn’t know that.”

Ellie is definitely not alone in thinking that…

*dreamy sigh*

All the Landry men are seriously swoon-worthy, but HOLY HOT SOLDIER, Batman! Ford Landry is on a whole other level!

“Because this thing between us started a long ago. We might’ve thought it was over…” A soft smile plays on his lips. “But it’s not.time Have a good day, sweetheart.”

I mean come on!!!

So a little backstory, it’s hinted in Switch that Ford was in love and that he let that love go. Can you say the perfect set for an interesting book! Anyway, jump forward to Swear and he is reunited, ten years later, with the one girl he loved but let go. Ford is an ex-military soldier with an alpha male rough and tough exterior, but a heart of gold who cares deeply for his loved ones. His determination to get Ellie back was sexy, sweet, and swoon worthy!

Ellie Pagan has just returned to Savannah and is opening a boutique with her best friend and the last person she expects to walk through her shop door is the man that shattered her heart. I loved Ellie and can relate to her so much. Her heart and soul was completely broken after Ford left and she is determined to keep her heart locked in a cage. Her resistance to Ford only made their story more sexy and angsty! She also has a big heart and no matter how many times she lies to her heart, it will always beat for Ford and it’s only a matter of time before she falls back into his arms.

Watching these two rediscover each other after years apart, and learn to fall in love with the broken people they have become made me tear up, hold my breath, and made my heart rate spike. Swear has loads of heart, southern sass, angst, and naughty deliciousness. In short, it is the perfect contemporary romance novel! BUY IT NOW!!!



unnamed (83)Synopsis

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.
