As Walker Gibson looks at her, then at the damage to his precious truck (that
she may or may not have accidentally inflicted), she knows she’s in trouble.
It’s not the busted headlight and dented grill that’s sunk her though. It’s the
downright sinful man in front of her that’s the problem.The small town mechanic is broody. Rough. Smells like engine grease and
gasoline and Sienna isn’t sure why that’s so sexy, but it is. It so is. She’s
ready to peel off her panties at the drop of his wrench.He wants her too. She can feel it when he brushes against her. Experience it as
he presses her against the wall of the shop. It’s thinly veiled in his deep,
brown eyes when he looks at her like she’s everything he’s ever wanted. So why
won’t he give in?The damage to Walker’s truck is the first of many mistakes between the two of
them, ending with truths that rock Sienna’s world. Nothing can fix her broken
heart except the love of a man that won’t, maybe even can’t, love her back.

Crank is a standalone romance in a new small town, blue-collar series from USA
Today bestselling author Adriana Locke. Join readers everywhere as they fall in
love with the delicious Gibson Boys.

Tracey’s Review

You belong in a place where you can plant your roots and feel safe enough to let them grow. You belong somewhere your tank is filled as much as you take from it. You belong in the little niche of the world where you can’t imagine waking up anywhere different.

Sienna Landry is the rolling stone of the Landry family. All of her siblings have their roles, but she’s, well, she’s still trying to make her way. Finding herself in ‘The Middle of Nowhere’, IL, is not anything that she’d envisioned, but here she is, doing something that she loves. Life, though, is great about giving us what we least expect, and she’s got quite a few things in store for Sienna. As that song, goes, ‘Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes…’ Enter Walker Gibson. Oh, my, indeed. He doesn’t quite know what to make of Sienna, but it isn’t long before she’s changed his world, and vice versa.

I was thrilled when Camilla got her HEA in SWINK, and have been waiting for Sienna’s chance to come along. She’s always been a bit of a mystery to me, but I just fell in love with her in CRANK. She’s got the strength, sass, and self-confidence that she needs to go toe-to-to with Walker, and I loved so much the way that she broke through his walls.

Adriana Locke has segued very smoothly into this series. The Gibson Boys is a completely new group of characters, but, with Sienna being a Landry, there are plenty of Landry moments, which makes it feel like a visit home. And I absolutely adored every single one of the Gibson family, including Nana, the unquestionable boss of the whole clan. Addy’s got her work cut out for her with this bunch, and I cannot wait to see what she does with Lance, Machlan, and Peck (secret confession: he’s my favorite, mess that he is. ♥︎).

I adore pretty much any book that Addy writes, and CRANK is no exception (see what I did there?). Having read the Landry family series is not a must, as CRANK is a standalone, but it’s nice to know the references, plus, why haven’t you read them? Fans of family series, of privilege versus working class type themes, of several bad boys in one small town, well, put this on your TBR, because it hits all the marks. 4.5 divine stars for CRANK. I can hardly wait to see what Addy does with Lance Gibson when CRAFT comes along. Until then, I’ll be over here, just waiting…
