Craft is the second book in The Gibson Boys series by Adriana Locke. Craft is part of a series but can easily be read as a stand alone. This was only my second book by Adriana (Author), so I still didn’t know how I felt about her writing style or characters but am pleased to say she hasn’t disappointed and I thoroughly enjoyed Craft. In fact I loved it!
The Gibson Boys series is all about, well the Gibson boys obviously. Lance is the brother of Walker who the first book Crank was about. You do get a little Walker time in this book, but the story mostly focuses on Lance and Mariah. Lance and Mariah have a fantastic flirting, working relationship (They both work in a school, Lance a teacher and Mariah the librarian) filled with banter and cup cake stealing. I don’t want to say too much more than that as I hate giving spoilers and there are a few things revealed later in the book which answer questions you probably would have early on. I will say both Lance and Mariah are complex characters. Things have happened in the past which have molded how they are today in Craft and the people they’ve become. I loved both characters. I laughed along with them, my heart melted with them, I loved their chemistry and my eyes even teared up a little towards the end. The story does have a HEA and its not an over the top, unrealistic one which are my favourite kind of romance books.
I love the story Adriana has created with Craft. I fell in love with Lance and would happily have Mariah as a friend. Nanna is brilliant and I kind of hope that we will hear somehow about the students still, as some stuck out more than others. Its been a very long time since I gave a romance 5 stars, but I couldn’t fault this book and am super excited to read Crave next (Machlan’s story). If you love a good romance with great characters and some humour, give Craft a go. If you’ve not read Crank then I recommend that too. Both books are available on Kindle Unlimited if you subscribe, so free reads! 5 stars.
