✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Flaunt by Adriana Locke


By: Adriana Locke
Carmichael Family Series
Narrated by: Jacob Morgan & Mackenzie Cartwright

Looking for a Fake Fiancé

Have you ever wanted to prove someone wrong so badly that you could taste it? 

It doesn’t matter if they’re right. The fact that they had the audacity to go there is what counts. 

Hi. It’s me. I’m that person. 

The man I’ve been casually seeing told me I’m not “wife material” and I should “lower my expectations.” Didn’t he realize I lowered them the moment I met him for dinner? 

Obviously not. 

Am I petty? Maybe. Annoyed? Of course. Determined? Definitely. 

I need someone to help me flaunt my new engagement—my fiancé couldn’t wait to pop the question because I’m that amazing—in his face.
The problem? I don’t have a boyfriend, let alone a husband-to-be.
Which brings us to you.

Are you handsome? Successful? A smooth talker extraordinaire?
Are you willing to do all the things that someone madly in love would do? 

Putting your hand on the small of my back. Forehead kissing. Acting like I’m a treasure you can’t live without. I need you to be prepared to do all those things … and maybe more. 

What do you get out of this? I’m willing to negotiate terms—especially if they include a job and a place to stay. It’s a long story

One night. One event. Let’s put on one heck of a show.  

From USA Today and Amazon Charts best-selling author comes a “hot and hilarious!” fake-dating tale between two frenemies turned roommates-to-lovers. Fans of close-proximity, and blue-collar, small-town heroes will fall madly in love with this story.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Wow! I feel like I've been living under a rock somewhere. How is this the first Adriana Locke book I've read or listened to??? I was in love with this family from the beginning, and I couldn't get enough of the banter and pranks between them. Then there's Banks and Sara, who are frenemies but not, and the more time they spend together, the more I wanted them to work. The story has witty dialogue, characters I couldn't get enough of, including secondary characters, a couple with tons of chemistry, and a leading man who brings all the swoons. He also inspires plenty of laughs.
Jacob Morgan and Mackenzie Cartwright give voice to these terrific characters, and Adriana Locke chose well, in my opinion, because I can't imagine Sara or Banks sounding any other way. From the humor to the swoony flirting to the steam to the more emotional moments, these two have it covered. I couldn't stop listening! 
According to Goodreads, this is the 4th book in the Carmichael Family Series. Now, I didn't have any problem listening to this one as a standalone, but now that I've met them, I have to know everyone else's story. So, I may get them a little out of order, but I'll get them! And I'll be watching for more from Adriana Locke.
