Restraint by Adriana Locke


Release Date: August 3, 2020

SYNOPSIS: 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.

REVIEW: I just love Adriana Locke’s romances and this one was no different! Blaire Gibson is the sister of the Gibson brothers in The Gibson Boys series, so it’s fun to start off with that little connection and get to see glimpses of previous characters. Blaire and Holt’s chemistry is sooooo good and I was living for their banter. Holt is a total alpha and it was interesting to see how Blaire reacted to and handled him. I love that they are similar when it comes to work, work and more work, but their families are still very important to them. Meddlesome siblings are so fun! Anyway, I enjoyed this one and I’m excited to see what comes next.

Thank you to Candi Kane PR for the aARC in exchange for an honest review!
