Title: Switch (Landy Family #3)
Author: Adriana Locke
Release date: February 20th 2017
Mallory Sims is late for her first day of work.
After spilling her tea, she discovers she has no gas in her car. Add that her arm keeps sticking to her dress from syrup left on the console of her car, flustered feels like an understatement.
Then she sees her new boss.
Graham Landry is the epitome of NSFW in his custom-fit suit, black-rimmed glasses, and a look so stern her libido doesn’t stand a chance. Being flustered is just the start of her problems.
Her punctuality is only the start of his. With a pink slip in hand, he’s been waiting on his new secretary to show up only to let her go. Then she rushes in with her doe eyes and rambling excuses, smelling like bacon and lavender. The termination paper falls to the side as she falls in his arms.
This is a disaster in the making. Not because of his pinpoint exactness or her free spirit, but because when they’re together, the sparks that fly threaten to burn the whole place down.
I think I’ll be in the minority with my review but well, I can’t love all the book I read. I have read the first two books, Sway and Swing, and I had already mixed reviews about them. I didn’t hate them but I didn’t love them either, I guess it was enjoyable and to be honest I couldn’t remember anything from these two books when I started Switch.
But I am tenacious and I wanted to read the third book and really like it. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the case and like the two first book, I just found it enjoyable but no more.
In Switch, we are following Graham, CEO of Landry Holdings, and Mallory who is looking for a job and get to work for Graham. It is a workplace romance and it’s one of my favourite type of romance. But as I said, I couldn’t really enter this story. I don’t know if it was the characters or the story itself. I mean I liked Mallory and Graham just fine when they were not together, I guess it’s their couple that I didn’t like and mostly Mallory when she was in couple.
For the story, even if it wasn’t revolutionary it was enjoyable. I am frustrated while reading the Landry Family series, because I totally loved her previous book, Written in the Scars, it was beautifully written and the story was amazing, and I don’t find this again the this series.
I don’t know if I will continue this series, I guess I will wait to read the blurb for the next one. I know I am not very positive in this review, but I think it’s a case of « It’s not the book, it’s me » because Switch has amazing reviews on Goodreads. So if you liked the first two books, you will definitely loved this one.
Finally my rating, I can’t give Switch more than 3 out of 5 stars. It was an okay book, it’s just wasn’t for me I guess.
P.S: One thing I love about this series is the covers! They are so beautiful and I love the colours used.
