Smooth. Sexy. Irresistible.
Those qualities equal only one thing.
Big. Freaking. Trouble.
Brynne Calloway knows that anything that seems too good to be true usually is. Fenton Abbott and his cashmere voice, Adonis body, and a magnetism like no other clearly falls into that category. But what’s life without a little risk?
It was supposed to be a rebound, an uncomplicated escape from reality. But nothing ever goes as planned. Fenton turns out to be so much more … in ways Brynne never sees coming.

The plane begins its ascent, the engines roaring to life. Fenton whips out a file from his briefcase and gives it a once-over. Again, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do and it's killing me.
I pull my Kindle out of my bag and try to become invested in a second-chance romance about a rock star, but it's nearly impossible sitting next to him. Each time I become engrossed in the words, he moves and my senses are assaulted by his proximity. The third time this happens, I search the ebook for 'cock' and start reading a sex scene. I need some form of undoing and if that has to be done via fictional character, so be it.
The heroine is taking the hero into her mouth when a low rumble radiates beside me. Startled, I look up and see Fenton smirking.
"What?" I push the power button on my e-reader and place it on my lap. I realize the jet has leveled off and it's quiet in the cabin. "What are you looking at me like that for?"
"Just wondering what you're reading."
"Because," he says, his eyes darkening, "your entire posture changed. Your lips parted, your breathing became labored. I'm intrigued."
"I don't think you'd be interested in this."
"Trust me—if it gets that kind of reaction out of you, I'm definitely interested."
Dragging in a lungful of air, I remember Presley's pep talk and decide I have nothing to lose.
I switch on the tablet and find the page. "She drew his cock into her mouth, stroking his shaft as she licked a pool of semen from the tip." I glance over my shoulder and his eyes are wide. I wink. "A growl escaped his throat as she stroked his velvety length, running her tongue—"
"Enough." He snatches the Kindle from my grasp and places it on his briefcase. "Fucking hell, Brynne. Do you want fucked right here?"

I admit it, I didn't even read the blurb for Wherever it Leads before I picked it up. The teasers I had been seeing online had piqued my interest. And having never been let down by Adriana Locke in the past I decided to go for it.
The opening confused me and made me what to find out just what in the world was going on to have someone so riled up. As it turns out, that someone was Mr. Fenton Abbott. YOWZA! That man is 127% pure alpha male all rolled up in a nice designer suit. While he is broody, intense and a force to be reckoned with he is also very lonely and that is what drew me to him. Adding the fact that he is drop dead gorgeous doesn't hurt either. I loved how he and Brynne met. It was bananas- literally.
Brynne, where do I start with her. She is a walking contradiction. Full of grace and a sarcastic sense of humor but lost and unsure of where she wants to go with her life. When fate throws an unexpected, but happy surprise on her already reeling world she is unsure of how to proceed. With the the help of her hilarious best friend, Presley, she decides to take Fent up on his offer. There is absolutely NO denying their chemistry. These two really know how to steam up the pages. But there is also an underlying sweetness behind all the intensity. Brynne and Fenton have a connection that neither can explain, nor do they try to, they just want to see where the road takes them.
While I knew all along on some level that Fenton was involved in the turmoil that was destroying Brynne from the inside out, I had no clue to what extent he was involved. When the shocking truth came to light it slayed every beautiful moment they had shared. My heart hurt for both of them. There was no good choice for Fenton to make- he was losing either way. And Brynee was more broken than when we first met her.
I won't tell you how it all ends but let me just say that my jaw was on the floor more than once. Adriana Locke kept me guessing with all the twists and turns along that way. I had absolutely NO clue how everything was going to pan out for Brynne and Fenton. Wherever it Leads is the perfect title for this book- because you truly never know where the road or river is going to take you. And Brynne and Fenton's love was just the thing to get them through it.
