Review & Giveaway: In Your Arms by Shannyn Schroeder

For Your Love #2

Zebra Shout


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 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...

When I read my first book by Schroeder I fell in love with her writing. I really love her O'Leary series and was so thrilled that she was going to be writing about the O'Malley's. I knew right away that I need to know more about them. 

Then I read Under Your Skin and I have to say I didn't like it all that much. I tried to but...

So I was a little worried about reading In Your Arms. Since I believe that no author can hit it out of the park with every book I knew I had to give this one a try. 

And I'm glad I did!!!!

I loved it. The author did a wonderful job of showing you Sean's growth in the story. He finally figured out that with responsibility doesn't come hopelessness. For him it was hard lesson to learn. But I liked him more because of it. Growing up is hard work but there are so many great moments too! 

Emma really cracked me up. She too had issues. She wanted so badly to leave behind who she was but forgot who we are, shapes what we become. I was happy to see that she finally figured that out. 

You'll really enjoy In Your Arms, it had all that I've found and love about Schroeder's books. 

If you've read In Your Arms or any other book by her I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
