Tracey Cramer-Kelly had hit another home run with this second book of the Lawson Family novels, Protecting His Heart. Once again she has tackled a difficult and emotional struggle of abuse, and she has done it with a perfect balance. You can tell the amount of emotion and work that is put into each of these novels with how well they read and how well they manage to make you feel all the feels without being so heavy you can’t enjoy the novel.
In this one we get the full story of Ian and Rachel. These two have both dealt with abuse of some form and are tackling adulthood and romance with these scars. I loved how they were easily relatable and so realistic I felt as if they were close friends that I am regularly rooting for. I loved the glimpse of the past characters in book one and a set up for book three. We should have have another fantastic story with that one and I look forward to getting my hands on it. In the meantime go and devour these two books I promise you will be so glad that you did! Happy reading!
