Book Review – Crank (The Gibson Boys, #1) by Adriana Locke


This is one mistake Sienna Landry can’t buy
her way out of.
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.

Crank was sexy, intriguing, and a wonderful start to The Gibson Boys series. I loved Adriana Locke’s writing style and the storyline and characters she created. I absolutely loved her Landry Family series, and I enjoyed finally getting to read Sienna Landry’s story in Crank. It was a great start to the new series and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the books to come.

   Walker and Sienna were wonderful characters and I really enjoyed them and their story. I really liked their personalities and chemistry together, and how their relationship progressed throughout. I enjoyed reading the story from both Walker and Sienna’s POV, and I liked most of their banter and interactions with each other. I’ll be honest, the story was a little slow as it progressed and didn’t have that special wow factor that would have made this book a five star read for me. However, I really enjoyed reading Walker and Sienna’s story and I was satisfied with the conclusion.

   I really liked most of the secondary characters as well, especially Walker’s family members, and I am definitely excited to read their stories in the rest of The Gibson Boys series.

   Crank was a sexy and interesting standalone contemporary romance, and a great start to The Gibson Boys series. Adriana Locke did a fantastic job with this book, and I was pleased with the outcome to Walker and Sienna’s story. I would have loved a little something more, but it was still a good ending. Crank hasn’t been my favorite novel from Adriana Locke so far, but I still really enjoyed it, and I’m looking forward to continuing the series with Cross!
