Book Review – Swink (Landry Family, #5) by Adriana Locke


I’m that guy.

Camilla Landry rustles against me, the silky fabric of her overpriced lingerie slipping along my bruised rib. The porcelain perfection of her skin is even more innocent against the colorful ink dotting my own. It’s demure meets damaged, pampered meets punctured.

So, yeah, it’s obvious I’m that guy. Dominic Hughes. Her attempt at rebellion. Her bid to see what the other side of the tracks feel like. I’m okay with being used because, from where I’m sitting, the other side of the tracks have never looked so good.

Swink was a wonderful standalone contemporary romance and conclusion to the absolutely amazing Landry Family series. I loved Adriana Locke’s writing style and enjoyed the storyline and characters she created. I had high hopes going into this book, but I’ll be honest, it wasn’t my favorite installment in the series.

   Dominic and Camilla were great characters and I really liked them and their story. I enjoyed their personalities and chemistry together, and how their relationship progressed throughout. I liked reading it from both Dom and Camilla’s POV, and I enjoyed most of their banter and interactions with each other. There was a lot of back and forth and up and down moments between Dominic, Camilla, and other characters that was quite frustrating and annoying at times, and it was the main reason I gave the book four stars. I’m not a huge fan of tons of drama and angst, even though I know it’s unavoidable in life as well as fiction, and it felt like something special was missing that would have made it five stars for me. I still really enjoyed reading the story, but I would have loved something more. However, I absolutely loved the last two chapters and epilogue, so they somewhat redeemed the book for me. Even though Swink wasn’t my favorite installment in the Landry Family series, I will always hold these books and characters near and dear to my heart, and certainly return to them again and again for a very long time to come. I would have loved even more at the end of the book, but I was still satisfied and happy with the conclusion to Dominic and Camilla’s story.

   Swink was another wonderful standalone contemporary romance in the Landry Family series and I really enjoyed it. It might not have been my favorite novel from Adriana Locke so far, but she still did a great job with this book, and I was happy with the conclusion to Dom and Cam’s story. I am so incredibly sad the Landry Family series is complete, but it will always be one of my absolute favorite and most memorable series that I have ever read, and I can’t wait to re-read it again and again. Adriana Locke is by far one of my favorite romance authors, and I can’t wait to read more of her amazing novels, starting with her new series, The Gibson Boys, and Sienna Landry’s story in Crank!

FOUR “Dominic & Camilla” STARS!
