Review: When Love Arrives by Johnnie Alexander

About the book:

Dani had planned to spy on Brett--so how did she end up on a date with him? 

Dani Prescott can't believe the lie Brett Somers is trying to sell to the media. During an interview about the plane crash that killed his parents, he blamed Dani's mother. But the crash killed her as well. Vowing to restore her mother's reputation, Dani has been following Brett and taking photos, hoping to find something she can use to discredit him. But when she catches his eye instead, she quickly finds herself agreeing to a date. Brett knows this mystery girl is hiding something--but he's got his own secrets to keep. What will happen when he discovers who she really is?

My Review:

When Love Arrives by Johnnie Alexander continues her Misty Willow series about cousins and their tumultuous past, this time focusing on Brett Somers.  In the previous book Brett was a womanizer and jerk and not a very likeable guy.  However, life and truth has begun to change him and with that he becomes a rather dashing hero.  Enter Dani Prescott who shares a tragic childhood trauma event with Brett and that he is unaware of.  Dani is a very scared and lonely character, trying to make her way through life and thinking that vengeance will make her happier.  What she doesn’t count on is getting to know Brett, the man she wants to hurt.

I was really invested in this story and could not read fast enough.  I have always liked stories where the bad boy is redeemed and Brett and Dani’s romance was lovely to watch unfold as well.  We are reunited with previous characters and while some things were resolved in this second novel some were not, I look forward to continuing this series with Brett’s sister Amy’s story.  We are given front row seats as this family continues to heal from the generational sins of their family.  This series just keeps getting better and better.

I received a copy for an honest review from Revell Publishing and the opinions are my own.
