Synopsis (Goodreads):
He is Her Salvation

Abby Merkley has been a member of the Church of the Apocalyptic Faith since she was a child, and there's no way out―except death. She will fight the odds to survive, but there's no one in the world she can trust, nowhere she can run that the cult can't find her...until her handsome, brooding neighbor takes her into the safety of his arms.

Luc Stanek craves a quiet life. But he doesn't hesitate when a desperate woman lands, bloodied and branded on his doorstep. Soon he finds himself drawn into her chaotic world, caught in the center of an apocalyptic war...and determined to save the fierce beauty no matter the cost.
Thoughts on In His Hands: OMG, I love this series. Abby's desire to be more than what the Church forced her to be got to me. The way she flowered under Luc's rough regard and slowly experienced the things she'd been denied made me giddy. While the frame of time they knew one another was relatively short, it felt right. Both Abby and Luc were ripe for change and they pushed one another toward that change with ease.

Also, I adore gruff, grumpy heroes who have a hard time connecting with people. Heck, I also adored women who are far stronger than they think they are and are willing to push forward despite the odds.

Basically, Abby and Luc pushed all my literary buttons. She's determined. He's closed off. She doesn't give up. He reluctantly lets her in. And, MAN, Luc was lonely. The fact he didn't realize it until Abby forced her way into his life made it even sadder.

With plenty of danger (Hello, crazy Church people), a few familiar faces popping in, and a sweet, complicated romance, this book gave me everything I needed. I'm seriously smitten with this series as a whole. Seriously.
