Screw him and his perfect stats.
Sinful smirk.
Delicious body.
Lincoln Landry probably even has game-winning stamina.

I’d like to screw her and her perfect ass.
Dangerous curves.
Sweet smile.
Danielle Ashley probably even has a game-changing personality.

There’s no denying the chemistry between them. It’s so fiery, it’s undeniable. They partake in it. Enjoy it.
They really enjoy

So I'm currently in this crazy kind of post book bliss. Have you ever experienced that? Finishing a book and not immediately clamoring through your Kindle to see what to read next? Yeah, that's where I'm at. While this is not completely unchartered territory for me. It's territory I haven't had to navigate for quite some time. So yeah I think I'm just happy for the time being to proverbially cuddle up to Lincoln Landry and bask in our time together. Revisit some scenes, listen to the playlist be ...more

Gah! I am in love with this family! I knew when I started reading this series that the Landry family would steal my heart. And they are doing it. Completely. I adored the first book and the second one is no different. It brought me the same feelings but with a fantastic new couple and a new theme (sports, yay!).

I'm so sad that I finished this book. I love Landry Family! Already after the first book in the series I knew it'd be my new favorite series. And I wasn't disappointed with the youngest Landry's brother story.

About the plot: Lincoln Landry is a hot, professional baseball player. He got injured at the end of the season and now his future is uncertain. He attends therapy and tries to reconcile with the fact that his career could be over. One day when the elevator opened on the wrong floor at the

Swing was an enjoyable read and I liked getting more from the Landry family. Lincoln was confident and sexy, but not arrogant to where I wanted to kick him. I liked getting to see him have to work for Dani's affection and it made the story very interesting. I can't say it's my favorite in the series, and there were times it seemed to drag for me, but overall I did enjoy reading this. I would definitely recommend it for anyone that likes a sweet read with a hot Hero. It can be read as a

I love Adriana Locke and the characters she creates, especially the men. Lincoln was AMAZING!! I liked Danielle well enough but her issues were a bit frustrating at times. However, these characters were realistic. Their actions, reactions, thoughts and feelings were incredibly lifelike. Most importantly, they seemed normal, approachable and relatable.

Sexy and completely delightful! The flirtatious banter and chemistry was off the charts! There were no heavy conflicts needing to be resolved. The characters were normal, down-to-earth people and were fun to read about. Their situations mirror real life and they deal with common problems most of us face in our own lives.

The story was touching and sweet. I started out not really feeling it but then it kicked in. I really enjoyed reading about

This family will be the death of me. I swear. You just won't ever get enough of them. Every single book will just have you so curious and dying for more when it comes to the Landry siblings. In SWAY, Lincoln made appearances, threw jokes and teased his way around Barrett and Alison. The youngest Landry sibling just made you thirsty for his hot, blazing glory and story. And now, here in SWING, Graham made such a huge impact I didn't expect he would. He's always so calm and collected, so in contro ...more

OMG Lincoln...My Lincoln....I'm so sorry Barrett but Lincoln hit the homerun, therefore he's become my fav in the Landry Family. I love him so much. He's so cocky, confident, sweet and super hot. He's got some insecurities, but that's what makes him perfectly imperfect. He's a player, flirting and getting laid it's his territory, so it's really adorable when he finally met his match, and when his trick didn't work, he got so serious an

Lincoln Landry hit a homerun with my heart :)

This was an absolute feel good read. I honestly thought this story was going to go one way from things I assumed from book one, and I was dead wrong, and I'm actually glad about it for once.

Lincoln Landry absolutely blew me away! He is funny, sweet, and sexy. He's going through a rough patch in his baseball career because of an injury, but he doesn't let it keep him down for long. With a little help from a woman who helps jump start his heart.

If you read Sway then you already had the pleasure of meeting Barrett's brother Lincoln, the outgoing and very hot baseball player. I loved him in Sway and couldn't wait to read his story. Swing is a great book if you are looking for a light hot contemporary romance. Lincoln is such a nice guy and very determined. I loved how he met Danielle and how she handled him. She is not the type of woman to fall on her knees for him, and

It appears that I am in the minority with Swing. I went in hoping it would be a home run when in reality, for me at least, it was a strike out. I tried, I really did to connect or find anything about Danielle that I could find likable or even tolerable but I didn’t. She was self-centered, bitchy, and immature. I hate when characters make others pay for the sins of others. Time and time again Lincoln proved that h

I expected it to be better after the last book which I loved! This one was okay I didn't like Danielle she had a lot of issues which eventually she overcame but I found her annoying.

Lincoln was very sweet and wanted nothing but for Dani to let him in. He had his own issues to do with his injuries but I liked him more.

Swing is the second book in Landry Family Series but can totally be read a stand-alone novel. Told from dual points of view, Swing follows the story of Danielle and Lincoln. Danielle and Lincoln’s story is incredibly well written and sucks you in from the very first page. Lincoln knows exactly what he does to women and has a total cocky attitude. But, when he meets Danielle, he intrigued by her. For the first time, a woman isn’t dropping to his feet and begging to get into his bed. Lincoln doesn ...more

Swing is the second standalone in the Landry Family series by Adriana Locke and having not read the first one I can tell you that it does read as a complete standalone. I had zero problem keeping up with the characters and their relationship to the characters that are in the first book. I will say though that after reading this one I am eager to go back and read Sway now.

This was my first book by Adriana Locke. She has been on my to read list for a long time now but I had never gotten around to

Adriana Locke has a gift of writing not only intense, emotional roller coaster style books, but also lighter, tender stories with emotion that still reaches deep inside and grab you by the heart. Swing is the latter...

We met the powerful, talented, handsome Landry family in Sway. In Sway, we are introduced to Lincoln, the athlete of the family. A major league ball player with a major league body and ego. Linc is all alpha and cocky, but often in a laugh out loud way. I couldn't help but love thi

Lincoln's Liaisons

I was absolutely excited and completely thrilled now to now enjoy the second book of the amazing series, Landry Family. This wonderful book is based about the youngest member, Lincoln Landry. The ever most popular professional Baseball Player. Especially after all his major injuries he became so worried about his whole career has an athlete. I fell in love this this character from the first book and was just so excited to read another from this most marvellous series!

What a homerun! #Punintended Linc and Dani are the hottest couple I've read in a while! their passion is on and off the sheets!! since the moment they meet you will be drawn to their story and how it develops!! Dani has had a very hard life because of her own family, so when destiny puts Linc in her way, she doesn't know how to react to it.. its up to the cocky baseball player to make her realize what loving the right person can do! The banter with the brothers will have you crying with laughter ...more

I am in love with the Landry family. Every single sibling I met in this book is fun and interesting, and the family dynamic among the siblings is pure entertainment. I would literally read anything that has to do with this family, and not just because I adore these characters, but because the books are light, romantic, fun, and so steamy.

Swing is my first book in the series (I will be going to back to read Sway and Switch is already on my TBR), and I was fully entertained by

Danielle Ashley is the estranged daughter of a former athlete and a distant mother. She was dismissed from a childhood farmed off to friends or worse the help. So she decides to do something she loves and to never ever date men like her father. That is until Lincoln Landry gets off on the wrong floor at the hospital she works at. He scores on both sides of the ledger in her head. He is sexy, sweet, great body, great with kids. BUT, he is a ball player.
