Review: In Your Arms ( For Your Love #2) by Shannyn Schroeder

Sean O'Malley has never tried to hide who he is. He shows it in the motorcycle thrumming between the legs of his tight jeans…the shaggy hair that falls in his gorgeous eyes…the wicked gleam in his smile when he asks Emma out for a drink. Sean is a rebel, a bad boy, and a ton of fun: exactly the kind of guy she's sworn off forever.

Emma isn't just the the prim kindergarten teacher she appears to be. And somehow Sean can tell. As soon as he pulls up to her overheated car he knows that a fast bike and a cold beer will fix her rotten day better than compliments or a bubble bath. Her straitlaced exterior and her wild heart light him up. But Emma wants to escape her past and settle down—and if her desk jockey dates don't understand where she comes from, at least she doesn't worry about them bringing her back.

One weekend of intense connection can't change the paths Sean and Emma have chosen. But with a little space to be themselves together, maybe the rest of the world can wait...

Terri's Thoughts

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  It was just released on December 27th.

This is the second in the For Your Love series.  While I did read the first story, I do not think it would impact this storyline too greatly if you read it as a stand alone.  For those who have read the first one, I preferred this story.

I found that I thought a lot like Emma throughout this story.  While I found Sean attractive and fun with a heart of gold, I (as Emma did) could not take him serious due to his lack of ambition and work ethic. Maybe as a teenager it might look appealing but as responsible, bill paying adult, he would not be appealing jumping from job to job without a care.  It is a shame because everything else about him from looks to personality was appealing.

I can also understand why Emma was so determined to pave a different path for herself than her mother did and why stability was so important to her.  This is what made Sean a non-starter for her....or did it?  Alas, this is fiction and what someone thinks they want and what they end up with are rarely the same thing. The chemistry between the two is undeniable and you know that they will be unable to stay away from each other.

The only question is what happens in between?  for that you have to read the story!
