What a great start (and introduction) to the Landry family.. they're tight, loving and supportive of one another and, as the electoral votes are being counted for Mayor Barrett Landry, all the family come home to be there for their oldest sibling. Can he become the next Governor.. and, with his morals and his heart held in the balance, just what will this race cost him?
He's handsome, wealthy, sexy and a charismatic Playboy and, when Barrett is served drinks by a beautiful waitress, little does he know it but his bachelor days will be numbered. However, Barrett has a struggle ahead of him because single Mom Alison has been burned once before by an ambitious ruthless man and she has no plans of going there again. But, the more time Alison spends in the company (and arms) of Barrett Landry, the more she realizes he is nothing like her ex. Unfortunately though certain people have their own agendas that will shake things up, bring back damaging memories and drive the loving couple apart.
This book was so good and I just didn't want to stop the flow of the story and yet I didn't want it to end either. Both the hero and heroine were likeable and deserved their HEA with each other after the muddied waters they were forced to swim through. It's a feel-good romance with sexy times as well as romantic ones as the handsome batchelor struggles with his conscience, rethinks his life goals and earns the love of a good woman.. and her 10 yr old son. A rich cast of likeable secondary characters who are waiting in the wings to get their own love stories. Wen and Kai's dual POV narration was wonderful and brought a quality to the story that took it beyond a 5* listen.
Worth a credit? YES and I'm looking forward to getting to know all the other Landry siblings as they get their own books - and up next is baseball star Lincoln's story which is set to be just as entertaining and just as enjoyable as his older brother's story was.

Would you consider the audio edition of Sway to be better than the print version?
Yes, because being able to hear the emotion and feeling in the performances really elevates the story to a whole new level. The book is wonderful, but the audiobook is incredible.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Sway?
It was towards the very end, when Alison voices her final doubts and Barrett masterfully eases them one by one with words of hope and love. It was really a sweet "what if" moment between the 2 of them and showed how well matched they are.
Which character – as performed by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross – was your favorite?
I loved Wen Ross as Barrett, but it was actually Daphne who stole the show! She was voiced perfectly by Kai Kennicott and was the quintessential love to hate them character. Some may feel she was voiced a little over the top, but I think her spoiled and elitist attitude were captured wonderfully.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Politics, Scandals, & Grapes Oh My! ;)

great story, narration is good, only thing I found a little annoying was the giggling. there is someone who laughs every 5 minutes!! But doesn't stop me enjoying the story! Would recommend!
I am a huge fan of Adriana Locke and have devoured her Landry Family series so far. I'm pretty new to audible and am never quite sure if I will enjoy it as much as the book but wow! The narrators really did this justice and I enjoyed it just as much, if not more than I did the first time. Loved it!!
