BARRETT LANDRY has it all. Power, prestige, and plenty of women, the dapper politician’s life is pretty phenomenal. But in the midst of the biggest campaign of his life, he needs to focus. The last thing he can afford is a distraction.
ALISON BAKER is a work-in-progress. As a single mother to HUXLEY, she’s rebuilding life on her terms. She’s focused on family, faith, and a future for her son that can’t be taken away. Putting her child first means not being careless, no matter what.
A chance encounter forces Barrett and Alison to redefine what they really want out of life. But everything comes at a cost … and sometimes, even for love, it’s a price too steep to pay.
I’m usually not a huge fan of books where the main character is a politician but Mr. Barrett Landry has changed my mind! We all know what politicians are like, especially now with the election just months away. We see on a daily basis how smarmy they can be! However, if all politicians were like Mr. Landry? My…what a wonderful world it would be J
Barrett Landry is the Mayor of Savannah who is currently running for Governor of Georgia. Barrett is a determined, sexy man with a good heart. He can have any woman, anytime, anywhere he wants. And he has…many times. Now Barrett has to clean up his act while working on becoming the Governor.
Barrett meets Alison at an event she is working and falls for her immediately. There is an instant chemistry between them but she is not the typical woman he usually meets. Instead of clamoring to get in his bed, she knows well enough to stay as far away as she can. Barrett is instantly smitten with her and knows he is going to work hard to get her to see him again. Game on.
Alison Baker is a divorced mother with a ten year old son to think about. All of her actions have consequences and she is trying to do what is right for her son Huxley and herself. She is strong willed, a hard worker and is a totally relatable woman in this story. Being that she was married to a judge and being put through the wringer from his stupidity has made her very cautious.
“I just don’t need a knight in shining armor. In my world, I am the knight. I’m the one that saves the day.” – Alison
The chemistry between Barrett and Alison is AMAZING!! The banter between the two of them is sometimes funny, sometimes sarcastic, and all incredible. This story is sweet yet sexy and fun….and hot. I never knew I would appreciate grapes so much after this book.
I am totally in love with the secondary characters in this book. The entire Landry family, especially Lincoln Landry, will be a great continuation on to the Landry Family series. Sway is a delightful book and I truly enjoyed every minute reading it. I will definitely be re-reading this book again soon. I look forward to more Landry’s!
I give Sway by Adriana Locke 5 stars!
