{Review} Sway by Adriana Locke

Sway by Adriana Locke

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

GENRE: Contemporary
THEME: Romance, Humor, Politics
RECEIVED: Kindle Unlimited


BARRETT LANDRY has it all.
Power, prestige, and plenty of women, the dapper politician’s life is pretty phenomenal. But in the midst of the biggest campaign of his life, he needs to focus. The last thing he can afford is a distraction.

ALISON BAKER is a work-in-progress.
As a single mother to HUXLEY, she’s rebuilding life on her terms. She’s focused on family, faith, and a future for her son that can’t be taken away. Putting her child first means not being careless, no matter what.

A chance encounter forces Barrett and Alison to redefine what they really want out of life. But everything comes at a cost ... and sometimes, even for love, it’s a price too steep to pay.


Can I just say I have a new addiction… it’s the Landry family, well the Landry boys that is. I seriously don’t know how to thank my fellow KA forum girls who recommended Adriana Locke and this series to me, I freaking love it! But seriously this is one of my new favorite series!

Sway follows Alison Baker, a mom of an incredibly smart and adorable boy name Huxley who is just trying to rebuild her life. She isn’t prepared for the charming and sexy politician Barrett Laundry, who pretty much sweeps her off her feet, but with a campaign coming to a near end Barrett has to figure out how to handle this new found woman who is giving him a run for his money.
Alison is the ultimate mamma bear, as am I, so I totally connected with her. She adores her son and is working hard to be a good mom and put food on the table. So when she meets Barrett at a gala and his charming alpha attitude spark something inside her, everything changes for her. What I loved most about this story, is Alison’s son Huxley, he’s hilarious and knows a lot more than he probably should, he put Barrett in his place a couple times, being protective of his mom as well as loves Barretts baseball star brother Lincoln.

Barrett is under a lot of pressure, with the election coming close and the annoyance of keeping his rich voters happy, when he’d rather be helping the people not the rich, he wasn’t prepared for Alison. She gets him to see that his ideas and wants as a future governor are more important than keeping the greedy people who are pressuring him happy. Plus he wants to make his family proud and always has the support of them, but Alison is a distraction and some people around him and making it hard on her and Barrett.

Overall I loved the dynamic between this couple, they are both from very different background, but also both proud of who they are as a person, Barrett as a politician and Alison and a protective mom. The romance is off the chart steamy and there is this thing with grapes, that just takes it to another level, fyi in the future books there are some major joke among the brothers and sisters about it. I also loved the family, the Landry’s are so supportive and loving, they fight all the time but its all in the name of how much they love each other and want to keep their family close. I highly recommend this series for anyone who love drama, humor, family chaos, and some smoking hot romance.
