BOOK REVIEW ― Swear by Adriana Locke


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.

Rating & Review


1. be overcome with admiration, adoration, or other strong emotion.

Synonym: Ford Landry

descriptionHe’s Ford. He was my first love, my first everything, to be honest.

A love that spans a decade, Swear is built on the memories of the shared past which were filled with love, laughter, special moments and a heartbreak that two people who never got over it.

A second chance romance, I especially loved how Locke wrote this without the typical tried and tested methods. Ford and Ellie are fully developed characters individually, two wholes if you may, and when they are out together, they create something that is so uniquely them. They are at that point in their relationship that the other Landry boys will take years in reaching. It is not "young love", it is a love that, even though was on the back burner in both their lives, has festered over the years and only grown in leaps and bounds.

descriptionI love you,” I whisper to him, my hand finding the side of his face.
“I’ll love you for the rest of my life.” He grins.
“Pinky swear?”
“Pinky swear.”

Since the inception of the Landry Family Series, Adriana has given us characters that I have loved whole-heartedly. Sure I love some more than others but I love them all something fierce. What can I say? Each of them is special in their own ways, you just can't help it.

It has been fun to dive back into the Landry family because this bunch, even though so different, gel so well with each other and are so tight-knit and are a force to be reckoned with, and it is a pleasure to see them all come together as one.

Bringing in all the elements — a love that spans a decade, wit, banter, family, understanding, and togetherness — and combining them makes Swear is the perfect light read. On top of that, I loved how Locke brought together all the four — Barrett, Lincoln, Graham, and Ford — love stories together and wrapped them up with pretty little bows, leaving room for the two youngest Landry siblings to be explored and find their true loves and Happily- Ever- Afters.
