Protecting His Heart: a Lawson Family Novel (Lawson Family Series Book 2) by Tracey Cramer-Kelly – Review by Karyn Taylor

Protecting His Heart (Lawson Family, #2)Protecting His Heart by Tracey Cramer-Kelly
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Protecting His Heart is the 2nd book in the Lawson Family Series by Tracey Cramer-Kelly. This book can be read as a stand-alone, however in my opinion you would enjoy this book more if you read Calling The Curveball first as these characters and the rest of the Lawson Family are introduced there.
I just knew that I was going to find this book heartbreaking from the knowledge you gain about the 2 main characters in the first book. Police Officer Ian McCleary was taken in by the Lawson family when it became obvious that his father was physically abusing him. Ian can’t help being drawn to the beautiful Rachel when he suspects that her boyfriend Josh is abusing her, both verbally and physically.
I loved the interactions between Ian and Rachel particularly as their feelings towards each other grew. Ian is desperate to get Rachel away from her abusive relationship and does everything in his power to do so. I also loved the interactions with the rest of the family. It was great to see Jamie and Kira again and get an update on their relationship. The more I read of Ben Lawson, I really can’t wait to see what the author has in store for him. I’m thinking it might be an explosive read.
This book will take you through just about every emotion possible. If you are like me, you may need to keep some tissues handy – just in case you get something in your eye.
I thoroughly recommend this book, it’s definitely worth the 5 stars.
