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.

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?"

My Review

My first Adriana Locke story was sweet one with just a bit of angst, lots of surprises and a steam factor times 10 that pulled me in until the final word. I enjoyed getting to know Fenton and Brynne and their by chance meeting leading to so much more. 

Wherever It Leads follows Brynne and Fenton who meet because of Brynne's terrible luck. Brynne just isn't having the best year. Finding her boyfriend screwing another woman, missing her brother, and now losing her phone, life seems to be turning against her. But when Fenton finds her phone in the produce section at the supermarket, a place he never goes, it seems fate may finally be playing a positive role in her life. 

Fenton is rich and experienced but there's just something about Brynne that calls to him even if it was just a picture on her lost phone. When he returns the phone, he knows that he wants to see more of her. After their date is cut short because of work related issues, he begs her to come to Vegas with him and spend the next few days together. Brynne is wary at first, though. Fenton makes it clear that this is a one time thing as he doesn't believe in love or happily ever afters. Talked into it by her best friend and hoping to use this as a perfect rebound, Brynne agrees. But as the days go, she finds something she really likes in Fenton and just when it seems they've turned a corner, everything comes screeching to a halt.

I was very intrigued all throughout the story. There were so many elements that left me scratching my head trying to figure them out. While some I figured out early on, others left me quite surprised. Brynne and Fenton's relationship was one that had me swooning then a bit baffled then a bit frustrated but ultimately falling head over heals for. Now I need to go back to Adriana's book list because I need to see what other heroes she has for me.
