ARC Book Review - Its In His Arms By Shelly Alexander
Lorenda Lawson has built a safe, sheltered life for her two young sons since their father was KIA several years ago. She has a beautiful cottage and a support network of family and friends. No one in Red River suspects that her marriage to Cam was ever less than perfect. Nobody, that is, except the gorgeous ex-SEAL who’s shown up after a long absence: Cam’s notorious twin brother, Mitchell.
Mitchell Lawson was a teenage rebel who fled Red River after the local watering hole burned down, choosing the military over jail. Now he has a new mission: making amends with the town and his sheriff father for his hell-raising days, while resisting the woman he’s always wanted. Between Lorenda’s warmth and sensuality and her boys’ mischievous matchmaking ploys, it won’t be easy.
When a string of fires breaks out, suspicious eyes turn toward Mitchell. Lorenda risks her reputation for his sake—but she’ll need to risk her heart, too, to bring this onetime bad boy home for good.
I am a huge fan of Shelly Alexander books so when I heard about Its In His Arms I was thrilled. I was lucky to get an advance copy of this book so I dived into it as soon as I possible could and I loved it.
In this book we follow Lorenda and Mitchell. Mitchell is Lorenda's brother In law so you can see how things could definitely sound complicated just hearing that when you find out that these two people are the love interests of this story. Lorenda husband passed away , he was not the best husband , but for the sake up there two boys and his parents she keeps up this facade of him being this amazing father and husband. In his youth Mitchell was a trouble maker and now that he is out of the army and back in his hometown he is trying to make up for a lot of wrongs, it is in no way an easy process but I felt it was necessary to see him do this . Lorenda was an amazing female lead she was strong , sweet , smart, a good mother and just overall good person. With Mitchell there is a lot more to him than meets the eye, to many people in this story he this a wreckless bad guy , but really he is a good guy with a heart of gold ,It made me so happy to see moments in this book were Lorenda would stand up for him. I loved the romance ,Shelly Alexander always creates these sweet , sexy , swoon worthy romances in every story she writes .With a sexy romance ,a wonderful cast of characters , the small town setting and a plot that will have you constantly turning the pages needing to know what will happen next . Shelly Alexander creates another excellent story with Its In His Arms . I cannot wait to get my hands on what she writes next. If you love all these things in your books I suggest you get a copy when It comes out January 3,2017
