SUMMARY
Can a woman learn to trust her heart enough to give her dream another chance? Can a man reveal all, in order to keep his love safe in his arms? Mandy would do almost anything for Mac, anything except give him her heart again. She has spent five long years trying to get over him. Now, forced back into his arms, will she finally have the courage to reach for her dream? Or will she lose him before she has even gotten a chance to be in his arms? Mac has never been able to shake his need for Mandy—not even after five long years without her. Now she is back but instead of the young, sweet girl who gave him her innocence, she is a fierce, courageous woman—so sexy he can barely keep his eye on the prize—her in his arms for the rest of their lives. A Mexican Mafia hit thrusts them into a race to survive. Alone with Mac, Mandy must learn to listen with her heart. While Mac will have to reveal himself for the killer he is, if he's to ever have Mandy safe in his arms.

Threats coming from every direction and your loved ones to protect? That's when one really finds out what they're capable of.

Five years. That's how long Mandy has been away from home, avoiding Mac Stevens, the Navy SEAL she's been in love with since she was a kid. But since she left, nothing's changed, Mac's life is still in danger if they're together, so she's terrified to get too close to him again when they're both in Hawaii for their friends' wedding. But with the threat to Mandy still out there and potentially VERY close, as well as some very bad Mexican cartel dudes who want Mac and his buddies gone, she'll have to trust him if she's going to make it out alive.

SAFE IN HIS ARMS is the second installment in the Love's Command Series, and it's a marked improvement over the first book. Action packed with danger from several directions, the focus was on the story instead of the sex this time, and therefore much more enjoyable. However, once again I was perturbed by the use of British spellings of words…from an American writer…with a plot set in Hawaii. "Manoeuvred" and "realise" and "kerb", etc. were in abundance in this story, much to my repeated dismay. But it wasn't always that way…check out this brief convo:

"I guess you'll have to practise--"

"Cause practice makes perfect, huh?"

Le sigh.

Mandy was pretty useless as the MC of a book featuring a bunch of SEALS. She screamed, sobbed, whimpered, whined and hyperventilated every chance she got. She did start to redeem herself toward the end, thankfully. I did like Mac a lot; he was personable and capable and attentive. But the BEST part of this book, hands down, was the action packed race for safety that Mandy and Mac went through. It was fast-paced and exciting, and I'm looking forward to the next in this series and hoping that the books continue to improve.

Bottom Line: A better installment in the Love's Command Series, but there are still several things that'll make you shake your head in dismay. Hoping for more from book 3!
