REVIEW - Crank - Adriana Locke

TITLE - Crank
AUTHOR - Adriana Locke

Releases November 10th


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. 

Johnaka's Review:

“Southern royalty meets small town mechanic, 5 stars”

Crank is everything. I have been a Locke fan forever and was more than satisfied with how she did this story. I honestly don’t even know where to start with this review. So, let’s start with the cover, its gorgeous! But once you meet Sienna and Walker you will realize how fitting of a cover it is for them. It is easily hands down my favorite cover of hers to date. 

Walker is broody, rough around the edges, and unwillingly interested in Sienna. I mean how couldn’t he want to know her after their first encounter? He is dedicated to his family and his small town. The thing I loved most about Walker is I could picture him in my small town. His brothers and cousin? Adore them! 

Sienna is supposed to be lace and pearls, but she’s more tattoos and purple hair. She didn’t mean to hit the hot guys truck with a baseball bat but sh*t happens! Walker won’t take her money when she tries to pay for the damages and makes her work it off, only the total never goes down. Sienna finds her place in the sleepy little town. A place she never knew existed. I loved how she really came into herself and how Walker just accepted her, no questions asked.

I love Walkers family and can’t wait to get more of them. I also fell in love with a sweet old man. If you’re from a small town you know the one I’m talking about, all towns have a wise old man you can’t help but love. Crank gave me a little Landry love, enough to miss them but enough to satisfy me. 

Here are a couple quotes from Crank that I loved;

“True love isn’t something you pick; it’s something the universe picks for you
“Love isn’t confined to time.”
“You belong in a place where you can plant your roots and feel safe enough to let them grow. You belong somewhere your tank is filled as much as you take from it. You belong in the little niche of the world where you can’t imagine waking up anywhere different.”
