New Release and Review: Restraint by Adriana Locke

RESTRAINT by Adriana Locke
Release Date: August 3rd




Blaire Gibson knows better than to have one-night stands.

She prides herself on her decision-making skills. It’s the one asset that has never let her down. But even the best thinkers have weaknesses. Hers is a delicious business mogul with a quick tongue. Unfortunately for her, that tongue is good for more than just talking.

Holt Mason doesn’t need to justify anything to anyone.

He wants Blaire. He pursues Blaire. And he gets Blaire because that’s how his life works.

Until it doesn’t.

What begins as a single night in a hotel room spirals into an unusual agreement. As late nights provide the space to trade secrets and walls come tumbling down, more is shared than just pillow talk.

They both should’ve known better. They should’ve shown restraint. Because when guards are dropped, hearts get hurt.

*RESTRAINT is a brand-new standalone romance from USA Today Bestselling author Adriana Locke.



I love stories with strong women, who are successful and independent, and alpha men who are determined to stay single, then get completely blindsided.  This is one of those stories in the most delicious way.  Holt is so swoon-worthy!  He is strong and sexy, but he is also sweet and caring.  He has definitely become one of my favorites.  If you’ve read the Gibson Boys series you’ve been anxiously awaiting Blaire’s story.  It was just a joy to finally learn what makes Blaire tick.  If you haven’t read the Gibson Boy series, don’t worry, you aren’t missing out on anything.  This is a complete standalone and the first in a new series.  Blaire is a strong, independent women that’s always taking care of everyone else.  Together they are perfect for each other.  I’ve you’ve read the Gibson Boys or the Landry series, we get a glimpse of some favorite characters, which was fun.  In this book we also meet several characters that I hope all get their own books in this series.  I can’t wait to learn about the entire Mason family.  This is another fantastic book by the author and definitely worth checking out!
