In the late-night quiet of the caravan park shower room, Lon Taylor washes away the filth of the Western Australian mines. He’s not looking for anyone, but when Casey offers, Lon doesn’t turn him down.
Welcoming the young man in his big, hairy arms, Lon provides a safety to Casey that he has never known, and Casey wants to stay forever. Still reeling from the breakup of his family years ago, Lon’s not sure he’s ready for the responsibility of the comfort and security Casey craves.
But perhaps Lon can risk opening his heart again and hoping for a brighter future. Casey has some pretty big skeletons in his past to deal with. And Lon wonders what Casey will do when he finds out how badly Lon failed at protecting the ones he loved eight years ago.
I have read several male/male romances from Renae Kaye and I can honestly say I have yet to find one I didn’t love. Safe in His Arms isn’t exactly light reading but you will fall in love with the inner strength of both of these men!
Safe in His Arms starts with a quick and sexy interlude between Lon and Casey. Lon isn’t looking for romance but he is happy to take what Casey is offering. Casey realizes that not only is Lon the sexiest man he has seen in a while, he also offers a strength and security that is vital for his peace of mind. A panic attack sends Casey into Lon’s arms for the night and a pattern is formed. Lon’s arms are now the safest place Casey can ever image being. However both characters have pasts that need to be revealed and insecurities that need to be dealt with before their relationship can fully evolve.
I loved the combination of intimidating bear and tender romantic that the author created in Lon. His quiet strength and gentle actions towards Casey just tugged at my heart strings. And in Casey we have a character who has overcome such a horrific past to become an amazingly strong and determined young man. These two characters are opposites in so many ways but they compliment each other beautifully.
Safe in His Arms had so many things I look for in a book. Well written dialog, strong secondary characters, hot and sweet sex scenes and characters that I absolutely fell in love with. This book will draw you in and keep you turning the pages for hours.
