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

Crank (The Gibson Boys, #1)

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 S...

    I may sound a like a broken record but before I move forward to my review, let me just say, Crank is Adriana Locke's best book to date. And, I am definitely Cranked!There's a reason why despite my swamped schedule I always look forward to Addy's release. It doesn't matter how full my calendar is as long as I can get my next fix. And that is solely because of Adriana Lockes's writing style. Feels god story? Check. Hot AF hero? Check. Sassy and str...

    Prepare for the rant! I am so pissed offExcuse the cursing, couldn't help myself hereI don't know who I hate more, him for being the biggest asshole ever because he had his heart broken, her for being brainwashed by his sexiness and instead of beating him with a bat right across his face for treating her like that, or his brothers and cousin for being MAJOR manwhores and I am talking about big time here.Yeah, I can't decide reallyI think it's tim...

Just when you think you couldn’t love Adriana Locke’s writing anymore than you already do, she gives us a brand new family to FALL HEAD OVER HEELS for!

    “True love isn’t something you pick; it’s something the universe picks for you.” I absolutely, 100%, just got CRANKed by Walker Gibson and I wouldn't, without a niggle of a doubt, have it any other way! Hell, I already want to go back in and just live inside this world where the Landrys and the Gibsons are real. I can't even begin to describe how thrilled I am that Adriana Locke chose to start her newest series by crossing over the phenom...

    You can’t tame a girl like Sienna.Once again Adriana Locke blesses us with a sweet and hot small town contemporary romance. Somehow she can weave in the close-knit small town vibe, the going to church and family dinners on Sundays with a reluctant love story and make it just work so seamlessly.Walker & Sienna are sweet. They are funny. They are hot. They are a little bit of everything which can also be said about this story as a whole. I laughe...

    Move over Landry's! The Gibson boys have arrived!Crank had all the laughs, heart, and steam that I have come to love about Adriana Locke's books, plus a sweet nod to my beloved Landry family. This is book 1 in the new interconnected standalone Gibson Boys series, and I cannot wait for everyone to meet this family!Sparks fly from the very moment Walker Gibson and Sienna Landry meet. On paper they couldn't be more different, which created a wonderf...

    5 Sparkly Small Town StarsI absolutely loved this brilliantly written romance. It may be set in small town America but there is nothing small about the emotion it packs. Walker Gibson is the mechanic in the town and he is the absolute epitome of the dark, brooding hero. One night , a beautiful spitfire of a girl, Sienna Landry, arrives and smashes his beloved truck outside his brother's bar. She has made quite the entrance and she also makes a bi...

    I’ve been waiting patiently for Sienna Landry’s story and the Gibson family to make their appearance and I was not disappointed!! Crank is the perfect way to start off the Gibson Boys series! I loved the little cameos by some Landry boys as well :) I think Sienna may be my favorite Landry as she was such an amazing woman! Even though she was trying to find her path in life, she did things her way!When Walker Gibson, owner of Crank, and Sienna...

    5 STARS!!!Holy Jesus. I. LOVED. THIS. STORY. I was consumed from page one. The push and pull, the chemistry, the banter between Walker and Sienna had me grinning from ear to ear. SERIOUSLY. I could NOT get enough of these two. And man, oh man, when they FINALLY got it on, it was like a bomb went my pants. Not gonna lie. Their sex scenes were so damn hot my kindle melted. DAMN.One of the things I enjoy about Adriana's characters is they ...

    I liked the story and our hero who didn't want to get involved or to fall in love but he ended up with his four tires flat because of our heroine. LOL! She hit him from the start and he didn't even see it coming.(view spoiler)[I completely understand readers who got pissed off with the fact that our hero being married and not say anything to our heroine. And his brothers also didn't say anything to her.He was separated from his wife for years and...

    I’m in love with sienna Landry that is all!!! God what an amazing story!! I loved the characters! I cried, laughed and swooned all over the place!! It was a page turner since the very beginning and so different than what I’m used to from this author! It was so refreshing and amazing!! No words!
  • BookSmacked
    I saw this book all over social media and it peaked my interest. I'll start by saying that this is my first book by Adriana Locke and I am so glad that I requested to read this book. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and especially loved the two main characters in this book. I am all for the broody male characters and Walker definitely fits the bill. I also loved Sienna, she comes from a well to do family but wasn't stuffy and all high and mighty. ...
  • Lara Petterson
    This is book one of a new series for Adriana and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and she didn't disappoint! Gibson meets Landry in the best way( well more of The Landrys like say arm wrestling with the Gibsons over beer at the farm)
  • Bellereader
    Sienna and Walker are start of something new but they have the feel of something so familiar and comforting that their HEA is like your HEA! Sienna Landry’s Family thought she had flipped her lid when she announced she was moving from Savannah to Illinois. Determined to pursue her dreams though, she stuck out dreary winter weather and building a client base and market space and her efforts have paid off as she is living her design dreams. When ...
  • Andi Isack
    I have been waiting for so long to read Sienna 's story. And here it is! The story is enjoyable and flow easy. Got some really sexy moments ( one of these is on a car hood). So you have to give it a try! Despite all these great things, I have to say that I didn't feel to same connection as I did reading Camilla's. I don't know why, maybe because of Dominic. Don't get me wrong, Walker is good, sexy, knows to change the oil of a car....but there we...

    REVIEWED BY JENNI love when a book grabs you from the first chapter and never lets go. Crank was that for me and I'm so glad I took a chance on this book!Walker Gibson hooked me with his smirk, but man, did I want to whack him with a baseball bat when his a-hole tendencies came to light. I love a good jerk, who needs redemption. Walker had his reasons for shoving Sienna away, but that doesn't mean I didn't want to crack him a few times. His love ...
  • Suzi (Obsessive Reading Disorder)
    4.5 Cranky StarsWhat a perfect crossover book from the much loved Landry series to the super hot Gibson boys. Sienna Landry didn't get her HEA in the Landry series but that's ok because Holy Buckets! She held out for one of the most broody, s3xy, stubborn heroes I have read in a long time. Walker Gibson is totally book boyfriend worthy. Read this book just to meet him. Now, Sienna holds her own as well. Talk about a woman with her own mind. She t...

    If you loved the Landry series, you are going to love the Gibson Boys. Adriana brings the banter between brothers to a new level. Sienna Landry meets Walker Gibson by accident. Walker is a brooding, moody man with a sexy smirk. Sienna is like breath of fresh air. She's a woman who wears her heart on her sleeve, always there to help someone out without expecting anything in return. But don't let her big heart fool you, this woman can hold her own ...

    Adriana Locke is one of my top go to authors. She writes books that everyone wants to read because she is a master storyteller. Her writing is excellent and her character development is brilliant. Crank is the beginning of Ms. Locke’s The Gibson Boys Series and the final Landry sibling installment.Walker Gibson is a big cranky hunk of a man and Sienna is independent southern girl and when the two meet is it is captivating. There’s a lot of ba...

    I'm done with Crank and one, I freaking enjoyed this book SO much and two, I can't believe I'm saying this but Landry Brothers who? The Gibson men exude charm, playfulness, cockiness with a dash of ruggedness which makes them oh-so-appealing and hard to resist.I adore Locke's series that centered on family bonding and this is another series that has me already in love with the Gibson's and I can't wait to read more about them! Full review to come...
  • Sarah - Musings of the Modern Belle
    ***Available Now - Full Review ***4.5 Where I Belong CROWNSAdriana Locke has started another amazing series with Crank. The Gibson boys have absolutely stolen my heart, and like the Landry family, she has effectively made me love the whole family, every single rough-around-the-edges Gibson man.Walker Gibson is the perfect blend of broody, grumpy man and swoon-worthy hero. I love the way in which he can be shut down and closed off, but they Adrian...
  • « Court (Take the Read) »
    First person/Dual-POV, HAE.4.5 stars.Crank is the touching story about Sienna and Walker, both reinventing themselves in different ways, in the same small town. Sienna isn't so much running from her life of stiff collars and polite manners, as she is letting herself be true to her personality. She was never cut out for the formalities, and that's why she left Savannah to pursue a career in custom design - apparel, assorted merchandise - with her ...
  • Mari
    I'd like to think if my car gets smashed accident or not and I loose money of some business cause of someone hot I wouldn't let it go. Well in Walker's case he did and let's Sienna off pretty quickly. The appeal must've been that much and I don't by the apology much but ok it's his prerogative. Sure who wouldn't wanna get off paying though right? So yeah pretty much attraction is there right away for these two. I'm not so sure what the plot is re...

    What a fantastic start to a new series from one of my favourite authors, I’ve been waiting on this series and it’s already proving to be a hit.I love the cross over of characters in this book from both the Landry series and a stand-alone book Lucky Number Eleven by the author and honestly this book stands on its own merit so if you haven’t read these books then don’t worry as you will soon want to after reading Crank. And wow these Gibson...
