Before it was even revealed, fans took to social media over their excitement for this Pop Fiction book.
Originally titled In The Arms of Five Hot Jerks, Caught In His Arms by VentreCanard was already a famous manuscript on Wattpad before it was published by Summit Books’ imprint Pop Fiction.
With numerous fanart, image quotes, YouTube video edits, and more stanning it on social media, you might be wondering what made readers so invested in this book. Here are the some reasons why:
It reads like an escape. Readers are thrust into a familiar yet alternate reality, living through the eyes of a rich young heiress named Florence Almero. The lead character Florence Almero, daughter and heir of a renowned corporation, is navigating the life of the rich and glamorous.
But when she’s thrown into an arranged marriage, she seeks solitude with Don Garpidio Ferell. After all, she wants to be as far away as possible from social responsibilities. #Relate much?
VentreCanard gave readers not one, but five guys to love and admire. When she seeks refuge with Don Garpidio, Florence is introduced to his five rambunctious grandsons and the chaotic world of the Ferrells.
Serving as their cook, the five guys pester and annoy her to no end, much to her dismay. But it is clear to see why the readers love the five Ferells. All have a distinct personality that endears them to Florence. Aldus, Owen, Tristan, Troy, and Nero's relationship as cousins sure are a hoot.
It’s not just about the game of love, but life itself. On the surface, the book seems to just explore the budding romance between Florence and Nero. But it goes way beyond that. As Florence becomes attached to the life she has with the Ferells, the consequences of her actions catch up to her, rendering readers speechless as they witness what follows after.

Title: Caught In His Arms
Genre: New Adult
Back cover blurb: Florence Almero always faces life’s challenges head-on. Pero nang sinabihan siya ng kanyang ama na ipapakasal siya sa lalaking hindi niya mahal, tinakbuhan niya ang nakagisnang buhay. Buti na lang at nagkita silang muli ng kanilang loyal family friend, si Don Ferell, na nag-alok sa kanya na manirahan muna sa kanilang mansyon. In exchange, she has to deal with his mischievous grandsons: Aldus, Owen, Tristan, Troy, and Nero. Habang naninirahan sa kanilang poder, napalapit ang puso niya sa magpipinsan, lalo na kay Nero Ferell.
Ngunit ang kanyang kaligayahan ay panandalian lamang. Sa malalaman ni Florence, malayo sa katotohanan ang natatandaan niyang nakaraan. Maging ang pag-ibig ni Nero Ferell ay hindi niya maipinta kung totoo o kathang-isip lang.
Caught in between a web of lies and the people she loves, Florence must choose if she wants to face these harsh truths or run away again.
