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.

My Thoughts:

Walker Gibson has a right to be angry.  But he’s a sweet talker.  Sienna Landry is a hard woman to figure out.  One thing that shines through is the big heart she has.  Can two people who seem so opposite from the other end up as a couple?  It was hard to see that in the beginning.  Do these two have anything in common?  In order to have a relationship do you have to like each other in the beginning?  I can certainly answer that one – my mother hated my father when she first met him.

I know that this is considered a standalone but I’m going to reserve that thought until I read more of the series.  Since this is the first book it’s hard to say if that is true or not.  After enjoying this story that won’t be a hard chore.  I may not have read this author’s work before but it certainly won’t be the last.  Craft comes out next year so I’ll have plenty of time to look into that.

Our author makes the characters very relatable.  The scenes she writes seem very plausible.  We have a male character who seems very brooding and just needs the right woman to put him in his place and show him how much a woman would add to his world – someone who’s not his Nana or his sister.  She also shows how important family is.  The funny thing is at times Walker seemed like a real pushover.  Be prepared for that one character that will make you hungry.  Good thing the book doesn’t have smell-a-vision because it would just make my stomach growl more than it already did.  The ending was great because it gave me a good laugh.  But it also had me fanning myself.
