Publisher's Summary

I'm that guy. Camilla Landry rustles against me, the silky fabric of her overpriced lingerie slipping along my bruised rib. The porcelain perfection of her skin is even more innocent against the colorful ink dotting my own. It's demure meets damaged, pampered meets punctured.

So, yeah, it's obvious I'm that guy. Dominic Hughes. Her attempt at rebellion. Her bid to see what the other side of the tracks feel like. I'm okay with being used because, from where I'm sitting, the other side of the tracks have never looked so good.

ANOTHER AMAZING LANDRY ROMANCE

Now you'd think I'd know better after listening to all the other wonderful books in this addictive series.. but oh no no no.. I go and start this book.. yes START this book at bedtime - naively intending to listen to just a few chapters - huh.. well at 2 a.m I was still riveted. Rooting for a mismatched couple who were complete opposites. Mild-mannered heiress Camilla Landry with time on her hands for charity work and the handsome alpha Dominic Hughes - a dirt poor troubled tatooed boxer/air con engineer who fights so he can keep the roof over his head. He has a 'history' with the Landry brothers and wants nothing to do with them.. or from them. Their relationship is surely doomed?

Dom and Cam have already been in a 'no strings' secret relationship for ten months with absolutely no talk of getting serious because this stubborn alpha had a very different upbringing from Cam's - it was a bitter childhood which ended in bloodshed and tears. Dom's convinced there'll be no HEA for Cam and him because he's got nothing to offer her and refuses to pull her into his world - so he emotionally tries to keeps his distance. However, Cam doesn't see his failings.. only his strengths, his struggles and his loyalties (coupled with their amazing sexual chemistry of course). She tries really hard to mask her true feelings for Dom and continues a relationship devoid of HEA's while around her are happy Landry's who've found their soulmates, are married or engaged and who are already parents or happily pregnant. These are things Cam wants with Dom - but he's blinded by his circumstances and their life differences.

This is their dual POV journey.. one that will have challenges, pitfalls, emotional drama and cloudy skies.. but it'll also have passion, possessive behaviour, sexcapades, touching times and two separate loving families who clash with yet support a hero and heroine who are destined to be together.. but who are destined to make it difficult first. As we all know, the narration can make or break a book.. it can be a torture or a pleasure.. and thankfully this book was a pleasure because it was expertly narrated by Kai and Wen - a great team whose style of narration and talents made each chapter flow smoothly.. seriously good guys.

Worth a credit? Abso-freaking-lutely. I didn't think I was going to like it as the relationship was already established, a done deal with no build-up.. but very quickly Adriana Locke locked me in to the emotional turmoil, the conflict, the passion, the negatives and the positives that these two likeable characters battled to keep under their control. And another plus was that all of the other Landry clan were here too.. from the older alpha brothers who were looking out for their baby sis.. to the loving parents (as well as the 'significant others') who lend an ear, a shoulder to cry on or share wise words of wisdom at just the right time.

Wen and Kai kill this book!! AWESOME

OK... It's finally Cam and Dom time!!! I'll tell you that he was so not what I was expecting. He was even better. Seriously this book so exceeded my expectations on every single level. I loved this book.

Dom is so much different than any Landry, which he is fine with, but what bothers him is that he appears to not be good enough for Cam. This isn't anything she has done, but a societal issue, but some of this reasons have valor. All he wants from her is her ability to care about him for who he is. All she wants is the same. There is such a discord in this for a majority of the book, but while the issues come out more emotions reveal themselves as well. This is when you truly get to know what Dom is all about, which makes you fall more in love with him.

Having four majorly overprotective brothers doesn't help the situation at all. They are being 100 perfect Landry's, which is great for us as readers but very hard for Cam; however, the greatest part of this is the more the boys show their dysfunctional attitudes, the more you see just how much faith Dom has in Cam's ability to fight and stand up for herself. It's a breath of fresh air.

I'm so unbelievably lucky to be able to review this ARC voluntarily, which was given to me by the author. One thing that I've always looked forward to is another Landry book to read. This series may be done, but there is more to come in secrets, surprises and a new series starring a favorite Locke character!!! I'm so excited for what AL has in store for us. Five stars is truly not enough. I will be re-reading this book again soon. Now just have to wait for the audio book to come out!!!!

My Two Pennies

I love how Kai can go between multiple so many characters throughout the story so smoothly and Wen, well I’m just hooked on that deep voice that holds your attention. As for the story itself 4.5 Sweet stars, I am so happy that Cam “Swink” has her very own story. This family is by far my favorite yet and although I’m still hooked on Lincoln Cam and Don are at the top of my list as well. She may be the youngest of the siblings but she knows who and what she wants and will not let anyone change her mind. Dom is a hard working man holding not one but two jobs and boxing on the side while Swink being a Landry lives a slightly different lifestyle but this man has a heart of gold and the way he treats Cam is the way every man should. Wonderful story with a beautiful ending. I can’t believe we’re five books into this family and I still want to hear more. Usually after a couple the storyline tends to dip a bit but not with this series. I’ve read them in order but I feel like you’d be able to jump around and not be lost in the slightest. Grab your copy and get to know this family. This is my unbiased and voluntary review.

Swanky

All this time, I thought Camilla's nickname was Swank. I'm not sure what Swink means, but I sure enjoyed her story. The main conflict is between Camilla's swanky life and Dom's working class and sometimes seedy one.

Locke's strength is her characters. She simply makes you fall in love with them. The whole Landry family makes you want to be a part of it. I enjoyed seeing the continuation of Graham's and Mallory's relationship, too. It's nice to revisit all the siblings' stories. I can't believe there's only one more left. I wouldn't mind seeing a book dedicated to Troy (hint, hint).

As always, Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross's narration is top notch. I've always loved their work, but I think it's getting even better with time. There is nothing that compares with duet narration. It's so nice to hear men be men and women be women.

I received this audiobook for free and chose to review it.

will have to actually read...

make sure you do the sample of the narration, could not stand it. The story was a good one but it would be a much better to read it then to listen to these two.

Adriana does it again.

Would you consider the audio edition of Swink to be better than the print version?

In this case I prefer the audio version. Kai's sweet southern charm flows freely and Wen's brooding DEEP voice is like honey.

Have you listened to any of Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Kai and Wen are always spectacular and this performance does not disappoint. They have such a range of different voices it is not difficult to differentiate between characters, and the way they play off of each other is nothing short of amazing.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Adriana's description of the big fight was quite detailed and heartfelt. I was able to see through Camilla's eyes and feel her heart breaking. A very well-done scene.

Any additional comments?

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I loved Cam's and Dom's story and can't wait for Crank!!


This is part of The Laundry Family Series. I couldn't wait to read Camille Laundry's story! I was so ready to find out who her mystery man was!! Finally we get to meet Dominic Hughes. Cam and Dom are definitely from total opposite sides of the track. Everywhere she is smooth, he is rough. And they are so hot together!! Things started out as just a fling but as feelings get involved different situations arise. They must decide if can they put aside their differences and fully accept each other. Will Dom every go around her family and will they ever really accept him?
I loved Cam's and Dom's story and can't wait for Crank!! I listened to the audible version and Wen and Kai did an awesome job!!

Classic Locke

Always have I enjoyed the Laundry Series by Adriana Locke but I especially enjoyed Swink. Camilla Landry is the sweetest and her dating a man, very sexy man, from the wrong side of town puts a whole new twist to the story. The Brothers always way to overprotective makes the story full of twists as I thought they would be even tougher to win over. I love all the mini stories of the family and the new addition of characters. You did it again Adriana!!! One last nite about the Narrators, Kai and Wen are incredible, I can listen to them day!!!

Not the best Landry book

I did not enjoy this book nearly as much as the other Landry books. Camilla wasn't very interesting or relatable to me personally.

Another wonderful addition to a great series

Wow. I loved this book. This is a wonderful series and this was a great addition to this series. Adriana Locke again out did herself. Camilla (swink) and Dominic are so great together. I loved the story and the chemistry. The Landry's are great and to see each of them again is great. Cannot wait to get Sienna story.

In this edition Cam is with Don who is from the wrong side of the tracks and everyone thinks they don't belong to each other. But they do and they fight for each other.

Kai kennicott and Wenn Ross has done a great job. They made it so you don't to stop listening to this book.
