Will Angie forgive him for their past? Will she allow him to assist her with making a future? Angie wants to never see anyone from the Cooper family again, especially not Jordan. He wanted her relationship with his twin to fail. She has secrets they can never find out, or they will try to take over her life. Will her bundle of joy cause her to lose her freedom and distance from the wretched family?
In His Brother's Place is a heart-wrenching and captivating romance. It took a while for me to warm up to Jordan. Having Lucas in this novel made for better characters and personality to be shown for everyone. Lucas is easy to fall in love with and he makes people act out of character. He demands attention and a change in the normal daily routine. He does it so innocently. Martha, Mrs. Cooper, Trevor, Angie, and Jordan have no idea what is to come. However, Lucas does. He states what he wants from the beginning, and he wants to make sure he can get it. The plot thickens as time goes on and makes for a great read. The environment the characters live in assists with the building of great intimacy shown in this book. Sometimes it is better not to fight the inevitable as all these characters are soon to see. This novel was really touching and showed how out-of-the-box can really work!
