My rating: 4 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
I was kindly provided with an ARC copy of this in exchange for an honest review. I have given it 4 stars.
I didn't think anything could rival Miranda and Talmadge's story but this definitely rivaled it. Mitchell and Lorenda's slow burn romance was bittersweet. It's In His Arms was a roller coaster of feelings and Shelly Alexander's writing style once again had me hooked from the very beginning and routing for the couple from the start. They were just so perfect, together they were on fire.
I think the author has managed to captured the smaller details absolutely perfectly and I found this story to be a thoroughly enjoyable romantic read. It was sweet and charming with just enough of a dangerous edge to keep you turning the pages to see how the story pans out.
It is book four in a series but it can be read as a standalone. The cover of this book is a little unassuming but the saying "never judge a book by it's cover" has never been more fitting. If you like a decent slow burn romance with a happy ever after, this is definitely for you.
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.
