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?

I wish I could give this book more than 5 Stars! Adriana has a way that makes you feel apart of the book. She describes book boyfriends like no other and makes them so yummy and irresistibly alpha! I think Fenton and his cashmere ways is her best to date. I was actually mad when I finished this book. I kept swiping my screen but it wouldn't give me more. I could read Fenton and Brynne all day. Brynne is a very strong, super sassy heroine with a crazy funny best friend Presley. I did not want thi ...more

"No words are said, but none need to be. Our smiles say it all."

Brynne Calloway has had a string of bad luck and it continues when she realizes she's lost her phone. But when she goes to get her phone from the person who finds it and she meets Fenton Abbott her luck seems to changing but some things are too good to be true so this can only be a rebound.

WARNING: Obscene amounts of ranting ahead!

This book has made me inconsolably angry. If I could I would set Fenton on fire. And then I would stand just close enough that I could watch his skin blister, boil and ooze away from his skeleton. His pitchy screams of agony like music to my ears, while I cackled with maniacal laughter. THAT is how much I loathe the love interest in Wherever It Leads! I hate him to an extent that I make myself, and likely you guys and ghou

3.5 stars!

Wherever It Leads has an interesting storyline, a fantastic hero and a heroine that drove me completely bonkers most of the time. This could have easily been a 4+ star read for me, but every time I started to really get into it, the heroine would do or say something that really aggravated me (view spoiler).

Wherever It Leads is one of my favorite books so far this year. This book just grabs your attention from the very first sentence. We quickly see that Fenton is not a man to mess with, and he seems used to getting what he wants. And after finding a lost cell phone, he wants Brynne.

Brynne has not had an easy year. After being cheated on by her boyfriend, her brother goes missing, and it just seems like nothing is going right for her. Then she loses her cell phone, and she feels like the universe i
4 “Rudo” Stars.

Brynne’s life is a mess, she’s going through some serious family issues, she just found out her fiancé is a cheating asshole and now she just lost her phone. Life doesn’t seem to be giving her a break.
After finding a phone in the bananas section at the supermarket, Fenton finds himself immediately attracted to her owner, after only seeing her picture on the screen. So, obviously he invites her for a date. And when a date just isn’t enough for a few days with him in Las Vegas.
This is such a great book. It's romantic, touching, funny and exciting. What more could you want? And for that the main hero... Fenton Abbott is just perfect ... Swoon!

Brynne and Fenton met when she lost her phone ... in bananas... in the grocery store. It starts ridiculus, right? He is a good-looking bastard, and she is a very attractive woman who caught his eye. Not original? There is more such a typical things. She is a woman with a ex-boyfriend, who cheated on her, so she decides to rebound

"Locke has a way of always adding an element of danger and intrigue to her stories that’s just understated enough to allow the love story to shine through. This one is no different. I loved it and the ease in which she writes believable characters." - Mandi Beck author of the Caged Love series

Get ready to get #BentWithFent. Hands down Wherever It Leads is Adriana Locke's best work to date. **gasp** I know you all have your favorites, but you haven't met Fent yet! Fenton is deliciously sexy, utterly irresistible, completely devoted and all consuming. Brynne is strong, loving and hilarious heroine. Presley her devoted wonderful BFF is my kinda gal.

Overall Opinion: This was an ok read. I found it really predictable, but it was a pretty light and sexy read. I had annoyances with both the h and H, but nothing major to where I feel the need to rant....overall it was just ok.

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Brynne and Fenton's story. Brynn is convinced the world is against her. She caught her boyfriend of 2 years cheating on her (1 year ago), her brother is a doctor that is MIA in Zimbabwe, she had to take time off school, and

I really don't like this kind of books. It's just about sex and sex and sex. There isn't any really feelings. After one meeting Brynne decided to go to Vegas with stranger who found her phone in shop. Rich, handsome, controlling freak who owns a few companies and best restaurant in town - typical main male character in that kind of "romance" books.
I thought that maybe I will give 2 stars because of the plot about her brother who was kidnapped but the end of this case was confusing and end withou

Why, Helloooo Fenton!

Lol.. That's Fenton. I really enjoyed his character throughout most of the book. It's that perfect orb of brash alpha sexiness, smooth gentlemen charm, and irritating egocentricity that just makes you equal parts hot and hot.

There is an argument on the merits and existence of love at 23%. Fantastic dialogue. A snippet of the end of the argument...

The hype that was created around this book? Yeah. It totally lived up to it expectation.

Let's go to the very beginning.... Once upon a time in a land far away, a story about a man and a woman, let's call them Fenton and Brynne, started with bananas.

Oh yeah, you read that right. BANANAS!

This was really a great and exciting story. My first book from Adriana Locke and it didn't disappoint. I was hooked and intrigued from the first chapter. I thought it was a different approach and it really captured me.

The female of the story Brynne is at first a calm and put together woman, who's trying to rebound after a shitty ex boyfriend cheated on her. She's from a family where work and education matters if she wants to get ahead in life. She lives with her bestie Preslie, who's fun and doe

What did I think of this book ? In all honesty I'm at a loss of words. This by far is my favorite book by Adriana Locke . It's fresh and unique totally different from her previous books.
The whole time I was hanging on by every word I read. Anything you would want in a book you got it humor , suspense , steamy sex scenes.Fenton Abbott is everyone's next book boyfriend.Loved all the characters.

This is my first Adriana Locke book and I’m happy to say that I was extremely impressed. I’m impressed by her writing, I’m impressed by the unique story line and above all I’m impressed by the way Adriana Locke has given depth and complexity to her characters and plots. Successfully avoiding any romance novel clichés, Wherever It Leads is filled with distinctive mystery, angst, passion and heartache.

DNF at 17%. This had a very juvenile tone to it that became unbearable to me very quickly. The first thing that really bugged me is when they went to dinner, after trading about 15 lines of dialogue, Dude claimed to love her wit...when in fact, she had said nothing witty at all. I think he also mentioned her intelligence and again, where was that gleaned from?
Second thing that bugged me (as it did other readers) was the next day trip to vegas and the shopping spree by his dictates. Haven't we b
2.5 rating. I'm definitely in the minority on this one. It had potential but in the end it just fell short. I found myself bored out of my mind. It was difficult to connect to the characters like I usually do. I enjoy feeling my emotions through theses characters rather than just read them. Just my opinion. ...more

Another sweet read by Adriana Locke! <3 She has a way with words especially when it comes to the characteristics of the alpha males in her books.

When things seem to good to be true Brynne Calloway always feels that something unexpected will happen. That is just the way her life has repeatedly been especially when her brother suddenly missing. Although staying strong for family sake and her constant attempt to stay positive, she continues to live her life as best she deems works for her. Thanks

That was just utterly beautiful and I couldn't be more in love with Fenton Abbott. I was seriously expecting so much from this book and let me tell you—it just went above and beyond that. Adriana Locke continues to capture my soul and make my heart swell with her stories and her hot, sexy alpha men. She stunned me with this one. She definitely made it so much more than it seems and it paid off so well. I knew it was going to be fun and hot and quirky, but there was so much more g

Wherever It Leads was all of the things! It’s not just another love story. It’s an amazing love adventure that enveloped me quickly within the pages! I did NOT want this experience to end!

I'm always excited for a new story from Adriana Locke. I was given the opportunity to early read this book and I have to say I loved it.

I feel like Adriana maybe gave us the best of both worlds because Fenton Abbott is a perfect combination of Cane Alexander and Max Quinn. He's unapologetically alpha, wealthy and really sure of himself. But he also has some really down home qualities about him, a playful edge and a really sweet disposition. So hold on to your hearts ladies because Fent's coming

Losing her cell phone is just one more headache in a string of disasters for Brynne Calloway, 24. That is until good looking Fenton Abbott, 29, finds it in the produce section. The story pulled me in right off the bat—I felt some initial chemistry and their dialogue was interesting—I had hopes for an engaging romance.
