Ellie Pagan has a list of reasons to stay away from Ford Landry.
It’s a mile long and was so much easier to stick to when he was a world away. Now that he’s standing in front of her—body hard and chiseled from a stint in the military, suit cut to perfection, and a smirk she could never resist—remembering all the reasons why just got a whole lot harder.

Swear was an enjoyable read and I liked learning more about Ford Landry and his first love. He and Ellie had a pretty simple relationship but it was still fun seeing them together and working out their past. I had a few issues when their story just seemed a little too easy and simple to the point I got bored with it and just couldn't see a connection. It was like their love for one another came back so fast that it made it hard for me to believe they actually
I'm in the minority with this one and I'm ok with that.

Issue 1 - it's been 10 years and the Hs not even looked for the h. He left, called a few times but only talked to her once and it didn't go well. After that it was radio silence. It was a set up by family members that reintroduced them.

Issue 2 - Hs lack of a real apology. Yes he had remource and he apologized but I didn't feel it. It would have meant more if he would have at least looked for her.

Issue 3 - heroine came off strong initially

I love this family! One of my favorite series ever. Sweet, emotional and angst… what more could you want? Big recommendation!

Swear is a second chance romance about Ford Landry. Yes, this mysterious, former soldier. I was waiting for his story and to discover his mysterious half. And I wasn’t disappointed.

Ellie Pagan was his high school sweetheart, but when he enlisted, not everything went well in their relationship. Now that he has retired from the army, and she went back into his life .. he wan

I always try to catch up with series I've started and haven't finished. The Landry Family series by Adriana Locke is one of them. I always enjoy to go back to beloved characters between new releases and this time I quite enjoyed reading Ford Landry's second chance at love! The Landry boys are so swoony and sexy and Ford was no exception!

Yes, Ellie got on my nerves sometimes with the whole thing of not trusting Ford again. I understand why she behaved that

Sexy, steamy, and completely SWOON-WORTHY, book four in Adriana Locke's Landry Family Series was a COMPLETE HIT for me! Ms. Locke blows me away with each new release, but there was something about Ford and Ellie's story that resonated within me. This hilarious and romantic, second chance love story kept me captivated to the very end, and even then, these characters will never leave my heart.

These Landry brothers sure know how to win a girl's heart. I'm undecided on which brother is my favorite! They're all fiercely loyal and sweet with just the right amount of cockiness and ready to chuck their ego outside the window for the right woman.

Everyone knows I'm a big fan of second chance stories and this one was not as salty like the ones I've read before which I totally appreciate.

You have no idea how glad I am to see the banters between the Landrys is still there and still as amusing a

Ohhh these Landry men just sweep me off of my feet. Ford is everything I've been anticipating. He's so Landry yet so not. Growing up ensconced in expectations dictated by his last name he had to forge a path of his own. Leaving it all behind to pursue a military career he breaks the heart of the only girl he ever loved.

Ellie's found her way back to Savannah and has no idea that the boy who left her shattered years ago has returned, a man. When their paths cross and the smoldering embers reignit

My life would be vastly improved, honestly, if I could just read a series from the beginning. But no, I refuse. I'm gonna jump straight into book number 4 and, knowing myself, I'll go back and read the other ones, but I'll do so begrudgingly.

So, that's the kicker here: I have not read books 1-3 of this apparent Landry Family saga (a family so soppy, they make me hurt a little bit). But I read this book.

Here's the verdict: it was meh.

Sigh. Where can I find myself a Ford Landry?

I can't believe our time with these Landry boys is sort of over! I want to cry, but the ride was so fun!

Once again such a good read! I honestly feel like this series can do no wrong. Absolutely loved Ford and Ellie's story. A second chance romance with first loves. Nothing is sweeter in my opinion. Pretty low angst. It did make me cry a few times. Sad tears and happy tears. You get glimpses and updates on all your favorite Landry's and their ladies

Have tissues

Darn book making me cry....I am such a sap!

The last brothers story, I think was the best. Ford is one hot piece of Yum! I liked him! Sweet and caring. He grew up and found out what he wanted and set his mind to it.

Ellie was sweet. Just like a woman to have elephant memory and not want to let go of the past. She was a tad stubborn for sure.

Great sweet read that needs tissues if you are a sap like me :)

I can't wait for Cam's story!

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC for the 4th book in the Landry Family series by Adriana Locke, "Swear". I opened my Kindle at 5 AM just to see if my ARC had arrived. I saw that it had and opened the book up with the intention of simply skimming then going back to sleep. I didn't stop once I started. I finished the book in one sitting. 5 and a half hours later, and let me tell you... It was worth it. As always, let's break it down.

I love the Landry family! Swear is such a sweet second chance love story! We've met Ford before in the previous books in this series of interconnected stand alones, but we didn't know much about him and his past until now. Dubbed the most "logical" brother by his sisters, Ford is probably the most down to earth of the Landry siblings, enjoying the calm and simpler pleasures in life. I loved getting to know him and felt his love story was the most realistic of all his siblings so far.

I love Ford!!! I even love his name... Hot sexy alpha male... Yes Please

I love this series and this author's books are just awesome. If you haven't read any of it, this series will convince you to read her books.

This story was a second chance story. Ford made a mistake when he was young and broke up with Ellie when he wanted to make something of himself and just find what he was good at.
Ellie couldn't get over it. Especially after the scare they had and

Teen love  and second chances? Definitely my type.

This is the type of book that you read after having a stressful day in order to get some happy and hopeful vibes.

Swear is my second book by this author and I loved the last one, called switch and I definitely liked this one too.

So we finally get Ford aka the sensible Landry's story....doing a happy dance!!

“Just how I need to remember that when storms roll in, how beautiful the rainbow is going to be.”

Hands down, this has been by far one of THE BEST family series I've ever read. Adriana Locke has managed to get me so incredibly attached to this family, it's not even funny. Because until now—and who knows, maybe 'til forever—I still have that deep yearning to be a Landry. The way she laid out and shared a perfectly imperfect, yet happy, contented and very tight knit family full of respect, loya

Ellie and Ford....Every book I think has my favourite couple! But these two, uhhhh, I love them! Love them! I cried so hard with this one! AL has a tendency to do that to me with her writing. She kills me! This book was more touching then the others in this series. This book was about second chances and not letting go. It was about trying even when you think you can't or when you are just plain scared. This story was no less than perfect. ...more

I don't even feel like writing a review here, it's more or less the same old same old from the previous books in this series.

It was also simply the matter of nonexistent sexual tension. It was a second chance romance but I didn't feel the romance at all. I didn't get invested, I didn't care for the characters or them getting together 😴

Trigger warning: minor character death / death of a loved one, cancer (heroine's father dies of cancer)

Another Landry hit! I love love love love these Landry boys.

It's hard to read about these boys at a slow pace. I'm constantly flipping pages, and it's darn near impossible to put one of these down. The thing I love most about this series (aside from the alpha hot guys) is that Adriana Locke does not mess around with unnecessary angst. I loved this one, but I felt the end was a bit rushed and tied up a bit too soon. Overall, a Landry WIN!

Losing him almost made me lose me.

I wanted to find out about this hype caused by the Landry brothers, and I was not disappointed. Additionally, I love second chance stories, especially if they involve high school sweethearts. Ford Landry and Ellie Pagan’s story was sweet. Adriana Locke has a knack for making you swoon, sigh and even cry at times, with her well-thought-out plot and engaging characters.

Ford Landry is back in his hometown to live close to his family and work with them. The Landry are a close-knit group and always h
