Review: Wherever It Leads by Adriana Locke

*****5 Stars*****
Where to start with this book, this is so much more than a fluffy love story, it has a very real and dark underbelly that is the catalyst of the story. I have to say this author is not one to shy away from subjects that can be controversial and as I have come to expect she does the matter a great deal of justice in her research and understanding.
A chance meeting brings Brynne and Fenton together when he finds her lost phone but the instant attraction between them leads them into a cruel twist of fate for Brynne and when the truth emerges it leaves her questioning if she can trust him. Brynne’s life is in limbo as she struggles to cope with the devastation of her brother being in a situation that could cost him his life, and an ex that is lingering around, so when Fenton offers her a chance to get away Brynne decides, with a little cajoling from her friend, to take the risk in the hopes that she can move on with her life. I really liked Brynne she is feisty, fun and likes to push Fenton’s buttons.
Fenton Abbot is a great character, he is mysterious and perhaps a little guarded in the businesses he runs and his private life. I was rooting for him through the book to do the right thing and I loved the sacrifices he made to help Brynne and her family.
The scenes that stood out for me in this book revolved around Brady, Brynne’s brother, and how a family copes with the anguish of such a situation, the dread of the phone ringing, the fallout from the messages and recordings, the anger at those in power that seem to be doing nothing to end the situation. Adriana really did these matters justice in how she portrayed the brave public front Brynne wore and her anguish behind closed doors.
I loved the ending to this story and I am really hoping that we get some more from Brady and Presley.

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.
