“Relentless,” the fourth book in Adriana Locke’s “The Mason Family” series, is a captivating blend of humor, heat, and heart set against the backdrop of a forbidden workplace romance. Locke, a USA Today bestselling author, has once again delivered a story that entertains and resonates deeply with readers looking for more than just a love story.

The narrative kicks off with a seemingly mundane incident—a car crash caused by a sneeze—that catalyzes the relationship between our protagonists, turning their world upside down. The male lead, a dashing millionaire CEO, finds himself inexplicably drawn to the fiery new hire who crashed into his car. Despite the initial premise suggesting a simple story of attraction, Locke layers the narrative with complexity, emotional depth, and a keen insight into human relationships.


What sets “Relentless” apart from typical office romances is its exploration of themes such as vulnerability, the fear of commitment, and the courage it takes to be honest with oneself and others. The relationship between the characters evolves from fast friends to lovers, navigating the murky waters of an office romance that is both exhilarating and fraught with challenges.

The heroine is depicted as stubborn, fiercely independent, and a force to be reckoned with, challenging the CEO’s preconceptions and forcing him to confront his own vulnerabilities. Locke excels in creating strong female characters who are equal partners in the relationship, adding a layer of authenticity and empowerment to the story.

The narrative is infused with Adriana Locke’s signature humor, making “Relentless” not just a romantic read but also a genuinely fun experience. The witty banter, comedic situations and the characters’ internal monologues provide levity and charm, balancing the more intense emotional moments.

However, it’s the twist in the tale—where one character’s omission and the other’s confession bring to light the complexities of love and truth—that elevates “Relentless” from a simple romance to a compelling exploration of the consequences of our choices. Locke handles this pivotal moment with finesse, demonstrating her skill in weaving together threads of humor, romance, and drama.

In terms of character development, both protagonists are well-crafted, with layers that are peeled back as the story progresses. The secondary characters, too, add richness to the narrative, enhancing the world of the Mason family and setting the stage for interconnected stories within the series.

“Relentless” is a testament to Adriana Locke’s ability to blend steamy romance with meaningful storytelling. The book is not just about the relationship between the CEO and his new hire; it’s about finding love in unexpected places, the bravery required to pursue it, and the resilience needed to overcome the obstacles in its path.

“Relentless” is a must-read for fans of contemporary romance, especially those who enjoy workplace romances with depth, dynamic characters, and a perfect mix of humor and heart. Adriana Locke has delivered a story that is, indeed, relentless in its pursuit of a happy ending, proving once again why she remains a beloved author in the genre.


From USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke comes a forbidden workplace romance between a fiery new hire and her smoldering boss.

“I had to sneeze.” I should’ve taken her insurance information and driven off like any reasonable CEO with places to be would.

She crashed into my car, for heaven’s sake.Becauseshe had to sneeze. What did I do? I didn’t get in my car and drive away if that’s what you’re thinking.

Nope. I stuck around. I could suggest I stayed because she needed help, but the truth? She was really, really hot. We became fast friends. Then friends with benefits. Before I knew it, we were involved in an illicit office romance that had me fumbling through a drawerful of panties to get a Post-It.

It was supposed to be easy—a fling, if you will. A dashing millionaire hero (*adjusts tie*) and a beautiful (stubborn, frustratingly independent, hell-on-wheels) damsel in distress. (Don’t tell her I said that.) It wasn’t supposed to be forever, but we did want a happy ending. (Pun intended.) We could’ve made it work, too.

But one of us overcomplicated things with the L-word. And the other? They omitted a truth that changed everything.
