Review: Craft by Adriana Locke

☆☆➹⁀☆ 5 stars☆➹⁀☆☆ 
What it’s about:
They’re not quite enemies. Not really friends.
More like frustrated balls of sexual tension and neither will give in.
Lance Gibson drives Mariah Malarkey absolutely
crazy. He uses her office like a phone booth, takes cupcakes from the corner of
her desk like she baked them just for him. She didn’t. Maybe she knew the

history teacher happened to love peanut butter icing, but that was purely a
coincidence. All sixteen times.
Mariah has a way of getting under Lance’s skin too. She calls him out on his crap, spoils him even if inadvertently, and seeing the librarian in skirts drives him wild. She won’t give in. It’s for the best, really, considering there’s no way he could lie to a woman like that and he’s not about to tell her the truth about himself. Not in a million years.
These two don’t hate each other. They don’t really like each other. But for this to be a friends-to-lovers story, they have to start somewhere, right?
Note: This can be read as a standalone novel.

Guest Reviewer Lisha’s Thoughts:

Oh wow, I have been eagerly waiting to read the next Gibson brother story and Craft does not disappoint. Like the title- this book is well crafted and so funny that I just could not put it down. Lance is the nerdy older brother of Walker and Machlan and is a hunky History teacher at the local High School. He has a fear of commitment and so you know there has to be something troubling in his past that he is hiding. Lance is living a double life. On one hand he has been bantering back and forth online via a dating app. He enjoys these online interactions with “Naughty Nurse” but is unwilling to actually commit to meeting her in person. On the other hand he has been a thorn in the side of his co-worker, Mariah, the high school Librarian. He has been using her office as his personal phone booth and any other excuse to invade her space.

Mariah is not looking to get into any relationships either and is beginning to wonder if her future is going to be involving cats, lots of cats. Her family life is a mess with a mother and sister from Hell. She fights against the pull she feels for Lance while subconsciously lures him back in with her baked goods. The dialog between her and Lance was hilarious and the best part of book. I often found myself laughing out loud at Lance’s shenanigans. I liked that these two were real people even with their flaws and found myself pulling for them. Craft is my favorite so far of the Gibson brothers and I would happily recommend it to others.
