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.

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

Squeee!!! This is so wonderful and funny and hilarious and it really is one of the best heart warming, light hearted and swoony read ever!!! And really it's one of the reasons why I sooo love to root for Adriana Locke's work. Anticipating in her every releases is an understatement because if there is a right term more than that, it's h

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!).

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. It was fun 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
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.

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.

Danielle ❤️ Pretty Mess Reading ❤️

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

I'm having a really hard time staying interested in this one :/ I don't know if I'm not connecting with the characters or what... but I definitely need to take a break and maybe come back to this at a later date.

I LOVED Lincoln. He's FLAWLESS ❤️
I didn't really like Danielle. Okay, I don't like an unsecure heroine. We all face insecurities at some point of time, but I hate when someone starts judging the other person/ a situation wholly based on the insecurity.

And I've already established the fact that I can never be fan of Adriana Locke's writing style. She writes too blandly for me to get excited about 'what will happen next'

Yup, that's why I didn't love the book as much as rest of my GR friends did.😂

I don't know how Adriana Locke does this, but every time I read her stories I become really invested in the characters' lives. The story itself its not that good (this one it was too insta-lust/attraction even for me) but somehow after reading this I want to read the story of every character mentioned.

Like I said, the story wasn't that original or interesting but I absolutely loved Lincoln and his banter with Dani.

I'll probably pick the next book soon, I really want to read Graham's story and I'


Another enjoyable romantic read. I do love the Landry family.

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
OMG! I absolutely ADORED these characters!!! A SEXY and SWOONY romance that will make your knees buckle and your heart melt! Just when I thought I had my fill of sports romances for the year, Ms. Locke gives us SWING, and now all I want is MORE!

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

"My happiness is now with you. I think yours is with me too."

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
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

This book came highly recommended by my book bestie, Katie, so of course I had to give it a try! I couldn’t be happier that I did cause I really enjoyed this one!

Lincoln Landry in all his glory made me really like this book! His relationship with Huxley is so adorable! Around women, he seems to be quite full of himself, but when he’s around children, he seems more down to earth and humble. Speaking of humble, I thought it was incredibly sweet that Lincoln asked fo

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

Unfortunately I didn’t love this one so much because it reminded me too much of book one. It kind of felt like the same exact story, just swap out the details.

I’m not the biggest fan of having two people meet and wanting to be together - but the only thing keeping them apart is the one thing that makes the character who they are - in this instance, he’s a baseball player and she doesn’t date pro sports players because of stuff in her past. It’s just not my favorite type of conflict for a storyli
