Ellie Pagan has a list of reasons to stay away from Ford Landry.
It’s a mile long and was so much easier to stick to when he was a world away. Now that he’s standing in front of her—body hard and chiseled from a stint in the military, suit cut to perfection, and a smirk she could never resist—remembering all the reasons why just got a whole lot harder.
Ford gets Ellie isn’t his biggest fan. He just doesn’t care.
Standing in front of him, giving him hell, she’s even prettier than he remembered. All he can think about is how she felt in his arms, the taste of her kiss, the sound of her giggle in the middle of the night. He may not know how to win her back, but he does know this: he may have let her go once, but that’s one mistake he won’t make again.
I feel like we have been waiting forever to hear the story of Ford and it was damn well worth the wait. SWEAR is full of happiness, sadness, self-doubt, family, love and by God, ALL of Landry boys and a TON of surprises you never saw coming!!
All of Landry family books (Sway, Swing, Switch) have eluded to the mysterious man that is Ford, owner of Landry Security. You can tell he is utterly heartbroken and in each of the other books, you start to see pieces of what makes him tick and what an amazing man he is.
Ellie returns to Savannah to follow her dreams and runs into the love of her life, Ford. Ellie and Ford were in love ten years ago and due to unfortunate circumstances and a boy who was just too young to deal with life, Ford left Ellie never to be heard from again. Now, ten years later, he is standing in her small boutique, Halycon, not the boy who shattered her heart but a man (and a sexy, gorgeous one at that).
“It’s done. I loved him. I needed him. He left me. Done.”
Ford knows Ellie is the one. She always has been the one but Ford was just too immature when they were together to know exactly what he wanted from her or from their relationship. Seeing Ellie again, Ford vows not to let her get away again. He knows she is the one, 100% but Ellie knows they are both at different points in their lives and just doesn’t see a forever with Ford. Good thing Ford is a stubborn man!
“Now, I realize she’s my past. And my future. There’s no other way around it.”
If you’ve read the other three books in the series, you know these boys have some serious sexy times…downright dirty and usually with some sort of food. Hell, Ford doesn’t disappoint, and the things he does with candy? Well, the man melts in your mouth, not in your hand 😉
I love the relationship that Ellie has with everyone in this book. From Ford, to her friends to her father, she just seems like one of those people who turns into a lifelong friend. Ellie’s relationship with her dad made me smile and cry at the same time, if that’s even possible. I love how she was very upfront with Ford and blatantly told him what was going on in her mind. And that he totally did whatever he had to do to prove to her that he was not the boy who walked away all those years ago.
Will Ellie finally learn to trust Ford? Will Ford get his happily ever after?
Honestly, I still need to find a way to be a part of the Landry family. They are everything a family should be. Barrett, Allison, Huxley, Lincoln, Danielle, Graham, Mallory, Sienna and Cam are all a frequent part of this book and I enjoyed every single minute of it. I love that the author puts them all in each other’s books so you get a sneak peek into their lives and what they are up to. Every time Adriana publishes a new Landry book, I’m like “yep, THIS one is the best one of the brothers”. Well, Barrett, Lincoln, and Graham, you have now officially been replaced with Ford Landry.
I give Swear (Landry Family #4) by Adriana Locke 5 stars!!
