WHEREVER IT LEADS by Adrianna Locke Release Day Blitz: Sarah's Review. Excerpt, + Giveaway!

Smooth. Sexy. Irresistible.

Those qualities equal only one thing.

Big. Freaking. Trouble.

Brynne Calloway knows that anything that seems too good to be true usually is. Fenton Abbott and his cashmere voice, Adonis body, and a magnetism like no other clearly falls into that category. But what’s life without a little risk? 

It was supposed to be a rebound, an uncomplicated escape from reality. But nothing ever goes as planned. Fenton turns out to be so much more … in ways Brynne never sees coming.

Wherever it Leads is Adriana Locke's fifth release and you can if you've read her previous books, her growth as an author is apparent in this. Her writing is thoughtful and poignant and really hits you with so many feelings! 

Brynne and Fenton meet by chance after she leaves her phone at the grocery store. Brynne is looking for fun, Fenton doesn't do relationships. Their worlds collide after a mutual issue comes crashing down on their bubble. 

"I love feeling the way he makes me feel, and I’m going to eat it up as long as I can."

Here's the thing...Fenton is HOT! I tend to not really point out the sexy scenes in a book because I really like to think more about the story, but listen. Fenton Abbott is the ultimate alpha with the biggest heart. Damn, he had me swooning so fast and hard! He's perfect! 

“You make me want to be better, to take risks. I like myself better when you’re around.”

Brynne is absolutely hilarious! I adore a witty and sarcastic heroine because they're more relatable to me. Brynne brings it and doesn't ask for apologies. Her relationship with her best friend Presley is off the charts as well. 

Like I said before, Adriana's writing is has really progressed. I'm not saying that her other books were bad, they weren't. I loved them all. I'm just saying that the story, the sex, the character development was there and firing on all cylinders. The one thing I wished for was more of Fenton's point of view during the trying times of the story. That's it! Stick a fork in me, I'm done. Wherever it Leads was fantastic! 


The plane begins its ascent, the engines roaring to life. Fenton whips out a file from his briefcase and gives it a once-over. Again, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do and it's killing me.

I pull my Kindle out of my bag and try to become invested in a second-chance romance about a rock star, but it's nearly impossible sitting next to him. Each time I become engrossed in the words, he moves and my senses are assaulted by his proximity. The third time this happens, I search the ebook for 'cock' and start reading a sex scene. I need some form of undoing and if that has to be done via fictional character, so be it.

The heroine is taking the hero into her mouth when a low rumble radiates beside me. Startled, I look up and see Fenton smirking.

"What?" I push the power button on my e-reader and place it on my lap. I realize the jet has leveled off and it's quiet in the cabin. "What are you looking at me like that for?"

"Just wondering what you're reading."


"Because," he says, his eyes darkening, "your entire posture changed. Your lips parted, your breathing became labored. I'm intrigued."

"I don't think you'd be interested in this."

"Trust me—if it gets that kind of reaction out of you, I'm definitely interested."

Dragging in a lungful of air, I remember Presley's pep talk and decide I have nothing to lose.

I switch on the tablet and find the page. "She drew his cock into her mouth, stroking his shaft as she licked a pool of semen from the tip." I glance over my shoulder and his eyes are wide. I wink. "A growl escaped his throat as she stroked his velvety length, running her tongue—"

"Enough." He snatches the Kindle from my grasp and places it on his briefcase. "Fucking hell, Brynne. Do you want fucked right here?"
