Well when one of my favorite author kicks off a new series, I am ALLL over it!  Sway is the first book in the Landry Family Series.

Barrett Landry is the mayor of Savannah.  He is currently in the run of his life preparing for the race for the governor of the state.  He has his fun, gets what he wants, when he wants it.  He sort of just lives his life going through the motions.  Stressful job, busy life, no time for a steady girlfriend.  Every woman he meets is perfect content with just being with him if only for one night stands and they only see the potential he could bring to his life.

And…. Welp, it would’ve stayed that way for Barrett until he meets Alison Baker.  She knows what she’s heard about him and he proves right when given the chance.  However, Alison allows something into Landry’s life that hasn’t been there for a long time.  FRESH AIR.     She is a single mother just trying to do right by her son.  Do right by herself.  She’s got goals and will never let another man steal her dreams.

Do these two let the walls come down?   Once Barrett can see the other side of life from politics, will he jump ship or hold steady?  Will Alison allow a man into her and her son Huxley’s life especially after what happened in the past?  Who can you trust, when it comes down to it?  Will YOU #VoteLandry?

While I love Barrett, I can’t hide that I am a tad more interested in his brother Lincoln and Ford.  Graham I am sure has a story, but I really want Lincoln and Ford’s.   I can’t WAIT for some more Landry tales to be told by Adriana Locke!

Sway is the first book in the Landry Family series by Adriana Locke.

Barrett Landry is currently the mayor of Savannah and is running for Governor. His life is up for everyone to see and have an opinion on. He is surrounded by people and lonelier than he’s ever been.

Alison Baker is a single mom just trying to do right by her son. She’s had the life in the lime light and it all back fired on her when her husband decided to trade her in for a newer model.

When Alison and Barrett meet by chance at a political event, Barrett is absolutely intrigued by Ms. Baker. While Ali’s body is saying hell yea, her brain and heart know better than to get involved with a man like Barrett.

Can Barrett prove to Alison that he is worthy of her love AND her son’s love?

This book was different than anything Adriana Locke has written before. It was a good book but I felt like we didn’t really get to know Alison and Barrett like we have other characters that Adriana has written. I will definitely be reading more in this series!!!
