When you are asked to review a book, out of the blue, you never know what to expect. I love to go into to these "blind," I don't normally read the synopsis, and certainly don't read any reviews on the book. I have a duty to my followers to give an honest review and I don't want any outside factors to influence my thoughts, when reading the book or writing the review. I loaded up In Zach's Arm's, by Kori David to my eReader, and it has a very enticing cover to look at, so if I was to just judge by the cover, A+ there. As you know, I never judge by the cover, so I sit down to read and it catches my attention really quick. This is another good sign!! So, I look back to see who wrote the book, Kori David.... who is Kori David???? Well, I've always been a tad bit of an author stalker so I got to work, umm this is her first novel!!! WOW! Now that is out of the way- on to the review!
Have you ever had a stalker, or someone that made you feel eerie? Well Elizabeth Russell more than feels a little eerie! Her apartment has been broken into, and it looks very personal- tainted love, perhaps? Since she lives alone and can really do her job anywhere, she decides to run to the one place she can feel safe. She knows he will protect her at all cost, he had always been there for her. At one time, she had wanted him more than anything else.
Zach Steele (even his name sounds like he could protect you), was in the Marines, now he and his friend run a security company. He isn't the kind of guy that looks back on what might have been, and he isn't one for second chances. When Elizabeth shows up on his doorstep, half scared to death.... he was like, NO WAY! That was until he knew the whole story, he knew there was no way he could let her leave when her life was in danger. She was the only girl he had ever loved, and she still looked just as good to him as the day he left for the Marines.
They work together to catch this stalker dude, all the time they are getting closer and closer. She had already broke his heart once and he didn't know if he could live through that again. Elizabeth is dead set against relationships due to the way her parents were. Can these two work out their feelings and let the past go? Can she let someone go all alpha protective, you do what I tell you to do? How close will the stalker get or will he make contact? These are all answers you will get when you buy the book! It really is an exciting read, and I could not figure out the stalker until the very end! That almost never happens!!!
I give In Zach's Arms 4 stars
Get in touch with Kori, she loves hearing from her fans!
I have an eclectic personality that translates into both my reading tastes and writing. I am currently writing Romantic Suspense but that doesn't mean that at any moment it won't change to Paranormal Romance or something else. I can't help it, I love just about every genre out there. I'm a wife and mother and live in the hottest part of the Southwest with a 10 year old Goldfish, a Greek Tortoise, two snooty cats, and an Australian Shepard that herds us all.
