I’m that guy.

Camilla Landry rustles against me, the silky fabric of her overpriced lingerie slipping along my bruised rib. The porcelain perfection of her skin is even more innocent against the colorful ink dotting my own. It’s demure meets damaged, pampered meets punctured.

So, yeah, it’s obvious I’m that guy. Dominic Hughes. Her attempt at rebellion. Her bid to see what

First off, I should state that I am obsessed with this book. O.B.S.E.S.S.E.D! I can't stop thinking about it. I want to force it on every single person I know. I feel giddy over just the thought of Dominic and Camilla. I want to jump on my couch, Tom Cruise style, and declare my love for it to the world. I. AM. THAT. OBSESSED.

It's undoubtedly one of my most FAVORITE reads of 2017! In my TOP 5(ish) with Before I Ever Met You, Egomaniac, Good Boy, Devil You Know, and The Wall of Winnipeg and Me!!

Who doesn't love a good bad boy/good girl story? The second I saw this beauty on my Kindle I dropped everything and dove right into the story. I couldn't wait to see what bad boy Cam was hooking up with. And of course I was excited for some overprotective brother badassness scenes.

Cam and Dom couldn't be more opposite, but that's what made them so perfect together. Their chemistry was off the charts in a "I don't want to want you, but I do" kind of way.

***Well, here my review is, folks! Beware, I end in a mic drop so... Sorry***

You know how a lot of times when reading a story, there can be that lull between say, 50-70%? You know the one, after the characters finally get together but before the actual drama starts in the form of a climax. Sort of stuck in a lull, the status quo, not rocking the boat and coasting along... Well, to be frank, when reading Swink, I felt like I was stuck in this blank space for the entire book. That may sound harsh,

I'm going to be super honest and have an unpopular opinion, but this was a huge disappointment. It pains me because 1) I was looking forward to this book so much, I mean Camilla's "mystery man" has been hinted at for 3 books! 2) I adore this author and her books.

The first thing I have to say is that in my opinion, this is not a standalone. The fan of the series in me appreciates all the Landry family appearances and major milestones of other couples that appear in this book, but the ob

Wow! I loved this book so much. It was my second favorite of the series! Can't wait for the new series the Grayson brothers!!!! ...more
Who knew that my most favorite Landry book will actually end up being about a sister and not one of the brothers??? Adriana Locke made Camilla Landry's story downright relatable and so real that it became all the more addictive and unputdownable for me. I mean, don't we always want what we can't have? Don't we always go through that phase in our life where it's all about defiance? But in Camilla's case, the result of that phase was what truly made her happy and alive. What made her life complete ...more

THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING! Adriana has been able to keep me coming back to this series and always wanting to dive into the next Landry story! She'll run out of Landry's to write about long before I ever tire of them!
~*~ 4 1/2 STARS ~*~

When I get my hands on an Adriana Locke romance, complete joy washes over me, and when SWINK landed on my iPad, I screeched like a little kid in a candy shop. The Landry clan has quickly become like a family to myself and Ms. Locke's readers, and with that, comes a protective urge towards them. SWINK is a little different as it doesn't showcase a brooding and alpha Landry man this time around, although trust me, there is absolutely NO SHORTAGE of alpha-ness in this book! I
This book had me a little nervous. I wasn't sure how a Landry book without a Landry brother was gonna go. I love my Landry guys. There's no question. But holy hell! Dom not only met my expectations, he exceeded them. By leaps & bounds. Actually Dom was everything I love about a book boyfriend. He was sweet, protective, a hard worker and respectable. It would honestly be harder NOT to love him.

Then there's Camilla. I've been a fan of hers since Sway. (If you haven't read it you really should) Th

Here are some of my thoughts:
• Possibly my favorite book out of this whole series.
• I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it b/c I usually don’t like when romance stories start with the middle of a relationship (surprisingly, barely any flashbacks. I would’ve liked to see more on that, but I guess I should be glad b/c I’m not a fan of books with too many flashbacks). Anyway, right from the start, I love Dom and Cam together.
• Also, this book addresses real life issues, as Dom has lived a tough

Sometimes when you read a book from a new-to-you author, one that is popular, one that you've purchased some of their books because people you know have raved about them but you just haven't found the time to get to, and you FINALLY read one....AND THEY FREAKEN BLOW YOUR DAMN MIND. making you think "WHY haven't I read any of her books before NOW??!!" Adriana Locke and Swink are this for me! I have found an author who, I think, will become ONE OF MY TOP FAVES!!!!

This book is AH-MA-ZING!!! Adriana Locke always delivers a romance that I fall in love with more and more after every release and characters you can't help but feel an affinity to. She always hits a home run with me.

description He’s wild and uncivilized, but disciplined and thoughtful too. Being with him is like the real world doesn’t exist. It’s like there aren’t societal rules with stupid expectations. With Dom, I can do what I want. I can be whatever I want. It’s a crazy, exciting life.

I may dare say this is my favorite Adriana book yet. She amazes me each and every time. Just when you thought the Landry men couldn't get any hotter, leave it to Camilla to bring the hottest one yet into this series. But, we couldn't have expected any less. This book is everything. Packed with all the feels! A definite must read! ...more

Love the Landry books but for some reason I didn't like Dominic. I'm not even sure why. I will definitely read on and find out about Sienna when the time comes.

Every time I think that I can't possibly fall more in love with the Landry family, Adriana Locke proves me wrong! I wasn't sure what to expect with Swink since it was the first time a Landry daughter was being featured, but everything about this story was pure perfection. Swink is the 5th and final book in the interconnected Landry Family series. Though it can be read as a stand alone, for maximum enjoyment, I recommend reading the previous books in the series since many of the characters appear ...more

There's a reason why I have always rooted Adriana Lockes writing. There's a reason why even after several re-reads, I keep on coming back for more of her works re-reading over and over. And there's a reason why I am so thrilled with her every release. This reason just summed up Swink. This book had me nuts for waiting a long time that when i had it finally, I could not put it down. Man, Adriana's words just felt so real with this last installment of Landry Series and I am so in aw

A complete snorefest! Drastically different from other books from the series. Dominic and Camila are introduced after they have already been together for 10 mos. We didn't get to experience their first meeting, turning into a relationship....nothing. For that alone, I feel cheated. They had zero chemistry and the back and forth of Dominic and his feelings about the relationship became annoying. I didn't enjoy this one. Not even a little. 2*sorely disappointed* stars ...more

I can never pick which Landry man I loved the most I mean they are one seriously cool family and now we get to meet Camilla and she definitely gives them a fun fit their money.
We may not get a brooding Landry man but we get Dominic and oh my hotness overload, he's the bad boy her mother probably warned her about. On the outside and on paper they shouldn't work they are so different but they just do they are perfect together.

The final installment of the Landry Family series was the hottest one out of them all. My gosh. Adriana Locke did a 360 in this book and I couldn't get enough! Camilla Landry isn't her usual self. Her siblings notice the changes but her stubbornness, and in part her desire to keep something to herself, make things difficult. Her secret? Dominic Hughes. And like he aptly says, he is that guy. The guy your parents warn you about. But that's only if you look on the surface and judge him immediately ...more

Firstly i have to say that i am not always a fan of Book Series that give us each characters story separately. I find that i don’t always have a huge interest in reading other characters stories and tend to lose interest. But what i can say is, this series IS DIFFERENT. OMG !! it just keeps getting better and better !!! Adriana Locke has a talent of giving us characters that just dive into ou

Swink is book five in the Landry series and is the story of Camilla and Domenic. It's a beautiful, heartfelt story. I loved hearing from all the Landry family. A perfect ending to an incredible series. This series may be over but you never know what Adriana has up her sleeve next. Stay tuned!

Yesss!! Another fantastic Landry Book! Cam and Dom have their issues to deal with, but as always, Adriana Locke writes such lovable, relatable characters that I’m always pulling for them the whole way thru! Beautifully written, highly entertaining 5 stars!
3 1/2 stars

Ok read. I liked the story, but the I am not good enough for you got a tad old. Dom just seemed to harp on them coming two different places and instead of coming off as insecurity it came off as bitterness. Cam took it in stride but it would piss me off after awhile.

One more sibling to go.

“DOM’S CAR, A BLACK-ON-BLACK CAMARO, is sitting in the parking lot when I pull up to his apartment. The paint, although matte in finish, shines in the early evening sunlight. I’ve never been a big fan of cars, but this one is almost as sexy as Dominic. It sits low to the ground and sounds ferocious when he presses the gas and lets it roar down the road. Sometimes we take long, pointless drives out of the city, and I settle back in the leather seats and enjoy being wrapped up in so much power with him at the wheel.” 0 likes
