Publisher's Summary

BARRETT LANDRY has it all.
Power, prestige, and plenty of women, the dapper politician's life is pretty phenomenal. But in the midst of the biggest campaign of his life, he needs to focus. The last thing he can afford is a distraction.
ALISON BAKER is a work-in-progress.
As a single mother to HUXLEY, she's rebuilding life on her terms. She's focused on family, faith, and a future for her son that can't be taken away. Putting her child first means not being careless, no matter what.
A chance encounter forces Barrett and Alison to redefine what they really want out of life. But everything comes at a cost ... and sometimes, even for love, it's a price too steep to pay.

I'll Never Look At Grapes The Same Again...

This is my third book by Adriana Locke, and I'm really enjoying her writing style. I like how she combines real life emotions, and weaves in the right amount of conflict, angst and chemistry to hook the listener. Her stories may start out mild, but they build steam and momentum as the story progresses. While Adriana is developing the attraction, chemistry, and sexual tension between the H/h, she treats the listener to some really steamy erotic sex scenes while preparing the listener for the upcoming conflict, and plot twists. The grape scene left me speechless!

Sway's plot was well developed, but it's the characters that really made this story. They were multilayered, likable and had unique personalities. You couldn't help but to fall in love with them all, especially Barrett.

While this was a good story, the narration stole the show. In the audiobook world, Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott know how to deliver the "total package." Their performance is always an audio delight. Whatever written emotions are being portrayed, these two narrators excel at bringing those emotions to life. From happy, sad, angry, to lust, and a whole list of other emotions, they can flawlessly deliver them all.

Sway was an entertaining story, with a good plot, that takes the listener on an emotional roller coaster ride that ends with a heart-warming HEA. Another great KU/whispersync deal!

YAYE.. I'D VOTE BARRETT LANDRY FOR PRESIDENT

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.
