4.5 Star Review by Ashley
This is the book I didn't know I've been waiting for! I was itching to see how those Landry boys would react to their baby sister and the man she loves. And Adriana Locke did not disappoint. At. All. Swink was charming and sweet while still being sexy and full of heart. And of course, the Landry men, in all their hilarious and protective alpha glory, played a big role.
Camilla- I didn't see this woman coming at all. And neither did her brothers. She sprouted a backbone of steel that seeming came out of nowhere to her family, but not the man who gave her the courage to just be her, Dom. Oh my swooning stars!! THAT MAN!! Strong and resilient, just a touch jaded but with a heart of pure gold. He and Camilla were polar opposites- from the world they came from to the way they saw the world, it shouldn't have worked. It shouldn't have made them both soar. It shouldn't have made sense, and to Cam's brothers, it didn't. BUT to them it did.
I loved the family connection on both sides because so much of who Camilla and Dom were revolved around that facet of their life. Dom with this brother, who was awesome. And Camilla with her boisterous bunch. They proved that it doesn't matter if you have a million dollars or ten to your name, the things that really matter are how you treat others. How you lift each other up and support those you love when they need it. How you can be honest and still kind. How no matter what is said, what's left unsaid, what's done or not done, at the end of the day you know they've got your back.
Sigh, swoon and and all the feels in between. Swink gave me everything I love in a book. Friendship. Humor. A touch of drama. Steam. Family. Growth. Love. Dom and Camilla's story was a beautiful journey of acceptance and compromise. Adriana Locke has created a truly special world with the Landry family that I absolutely love being swept away in.
