Nice to see this family again!
Swing - Adriana Locke

*4.5 STARS*!

 

Great follow up to the Landry Family Series. I really like this family.

This time around we get Lincoln Landry, youngest boy, hot as sin baseball player. He sees the woman of his dreams when he's on an elevator and his life is never gonna be the same.

I loved the fact that as hot for him as Ryan Danielle was, she wouldn't give Lincoln the time of day at first. It really put him off his game. LOL

and what the heck is about those Landry books and food items. First it was Barrett and the grapes (I'll have to revisit that one) and now it's Lincoln and the ice. Those boys certainly are inventive in the bedroom.

Huxley made his appearance in this book too. I loved the heart-to-heart he and lincoln had about what Hux's mom and Barrett do when they are in their bedroom. LOL

But what made the story for me was how all in Lincoln was. Once he knew that was it. I love that. it's the sexiest thing ever when a man is like that. I'm so glad that he was willing to fight for what he wanted.

I can't wait to start the next book in the series. I'm loving these Landrys.

Audio on this one is excellent. The first one too. I love these two narrators. They are both new to me but they do an awesome job.

My Thoughts

 

Overall, my biggest issue was the Irish accent of the male narrator, I really don't like the way he drops the H sound, and it just comes out sounding like baby talk to me.  It just blows my whole image of Ronan, a guy who talks like a baby cannot be thought of as hot…

 

 

...this might be one of those books that I would have enjoyed more if I had read it instead of listened.  Trying not to let that influence my rating too much, I will say that this story is refreshingly funny, and well written.  Also, I found the heroines growth to be most inspiring.

Kellan
Countless hours of practice, and enough determination to succeed no matter the cost is what has brought Kellan to standing at the door to his life coming full circle. 
Life on the competition circuit was fast-paced, and exciting, but now Kellan is ready to settle down, and stay in his own bed for longer than a week.

Kellan thought he had it all figured out, except he didn’t figure in the sassy barista next door.
 
Molly
For seven years, Molly saved every penny she had to buy the quirky coffee shop on the corner.
Lattes, cappuccinos, espresso. You name it, Molly can make it.
Early mornings slinging coffee, and late nights thinking up the next new coffee craze leaves Molly little time to have a life. Her customers have become her family, and she would do anything to keep her customers happy.
Even venturing over to the new Martial Arts studio next door, and asking them to keep the screaming and grunting to a minimum. Surely one doesn’t need to scream so much, right?
 
With Molly throwing down the gauntlet to quiet down or shut down, Kellan does the only thing he can do.
Take off the sparring gloves, and show the barista just what Powerhouse Martial Arts is all about. 
Strength, Style, & taking no prisoners.

The Midnight Star (Young Elites Book 3) - Marie Lu

Monster by Skillet  --For Adelina…the monstrous girl…

The secret side of me, I never let you see

I keep it caged but I can't control it

So stay away from me, the beast is ugly

I feel the rage and I just can't hold it

It's scratching on the walls, in the closet, in the halls

It comes awake and I can't control it

Hiding under the bed, in my body, in my head

Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

My Thoughts

 

Overall, a satisfying ending to this vivid, darkishly fantastical realm.  While, I didn't like this as much as her Legend Series, it was a worthwhile read.  Despite my minds underwhelming capacity for the fantastical.  If you sometimes like to root for the bad guys, then this should be to your liking.
