Hadley Jacobs is over Machlan Gibson.
Sure, she’ll always be a little weak to the dimple in his right cheek and the way his five o’clock shadow makes him ruggedly handsome. But that’s not enough to cover every other thing about him because they all drive her nuts. Like how he won’t admit he’s wrong even when he knows it and how he drives his stupid car a million miles an hour on wet asphalt. As she rolls back into town and takes a seat at Crave, she won’t take the bait. She’s over him. Mostly.
Machlan isn’t over her.
It’s not because he hasn’t tried. He reminds himself over and over that she’s not the girl for him. After all, she drives him insane with her sassy attitude and the way she calls him out on everything. She beats him at poker, even though she doesn’t know the difference between a straight and a flush, and when she looks at him with her bright, blue eyes, it’s unnerving. When she climbs onto that bar stool and orders a drink, he puts it in front of her and ignores the sparkle in her eyes. He’s not over her, but she won’t know that.
But she does know that. And he knows she’s not as over him as she’s pretending to be. When life forces their hand this time, there’s more on the line than a pile of poker chips. It’s their forever.
Praise for Crave
“Second-chance romance at its very best! Crave was everything we wanted and more. We laughed. We cried. We SWOONED. And now, we’re just (im)patiently waiting for the next Adriana Locke book! Crave is a definite five-star read!” – NYT bestselling author Max Monroe
“The characters were perfect, the conflict real and raw, and the writing so realistic and believable. I FELT this book.” – Novel Momma
“All the feels and then some!” – Jennifer, Book Starlets
“The storyline and characters were wonderful.” – Julia, The Romance Bibliophile
“I love Locke’s ability to write a story that sucks you in from the get go but that is also relatable to life!” – Patricia, Words We Love by Blog
“Can this series get any better??? I LOVED this book. Obviously, Machlan (is) … moody, angry, missing the one girl that he will never get over, but you don’t know their story until now. And it is sososososososo worth the wait.” – Angie, GR
