In Your Arms (For Your Love #2) by Shannyn Schroeder Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway

For Your Love #2
Shannyn Schroeder
Releasing Dec 27th, 2016
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…

Don’t miss the other FOR YOUR LOVE titles!

In Your Arms was a great follow up to Under Your Skin! The story grabbed me from the very first page. Emm hasn’t had the best day, and to top it off, she’s stranded on the side of road. She isn’t looking for love. The only thing on her mind is seriously hurting her brother when she realizes he didn’t fix her car after she paid him to. Her world is thrown a bit on its axis when a rugged, sexy knight in shining armor on a motorcycle comes to her rescue. Sean is everything she is trying to run from…he screams “bad boy.” She’s done that before, and she knows she should run screaming in the opposite direction. However, she finds herself agreeing to drinks after he takes her to the garage where he works to get her car repaired. Drinks turn into something more, and Emma and Sean will have to determine if their fling can turn into something more.

I really liked both characters because they were written in a very realistic way. Both Emma and Sean were flawed individuals. Sean was irresponsible and enjoyed his life to the fullest. In ways, especially concerning his temper and fighting, he was still immature. He hadn’t met a woman yet that made him want to change his ways. Emma makes him stop and think about what he wants to do with the rest of his life. Emma is trying to escape the mistakes of her past and want to forge a different path than her mother did with a string of losers and bad boys. On the surface, Sean causes all those alarm bells to go off. As she spends more time with him, she realizes he’s not just the irresponsible bad boy she thought he was, and he allows her to be herself.  They really do bring balance to each other’s lives.

What I love most about this novel is while there is a HEA, it isn’t a “perfect” ending, but it’s a realistic HEA. Each character still has flaws, but as people in real life, it is a work in progress and compromise. Isn’t that what all relationships are in real life? That is exactly what makes this book stand out in the genre. Another great book by Shannyn Schroeder, and the icing on the cake is her excerpt from the next book in the series which is about Sean’s brother, Tommy.


Shannyn Schroeder is the author of the O’Leary series, contemporary
romances centered around a large Irish-American family in Chicago and the Hot
& Nerdy series about 3 nerdy friends finding love. Her new series (For Your
Love) will release this summer with the first title Under Your Skin. When she’s
not wrangling her three kids or writing, she watches a ton of TV and loves to
bake cookies.

Her lips parted, and her expression churned in confusion.

Lust. Need. Want. Fear.

All of them played out across her delicate features.

I shouldn’t have. I knew I shouldn’t. But there was nothing I could do to stop myself.

Always, always in the moment.

That was me.

I pressed her harder against the wall, my straining cock eager against her jean-clad pussy.

Desperate for friction.

Anxious for relief.

Everything sparked, and I could have sworn the room spun, the ground shifting below our feet.

She gasped out in surprise, eyes so damned wide. Her nails pricked where they dug into the flesh of my shoulders.

Hanging on.

What was this girl doing to me?

I leaned down, my mouth close to her ear. My voice came on a rough murmur. “Do you want me?”
