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.
This is my first time to read/listen to Safe in his arms. Honestly, I put it off for a long time because I knew that Beverley had some objections to the content of the book. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect.
I actually really enjoyed this story. There wasn’t a lot of angst, despite both main character’s rather horrific pasts. They are both fully in “move-on” stage. They are good for each other and supportive of each other from the beginning. They start out with a purely sexual relationship, but it slowly grows into much more.
It grows organically. There is no angst-filled, drain-circling “I do, but I can’t” or “He can’t feel the way I do” monologues. There was just a mature, loving, and hot relationship.
There are a few funny one-liners, but for the most part this is a much more serious story that some of the others I have read from Ms. Kaye.
This is not my first Randy Fuller narrated title. He does a decent job and is a pleasure to listen to. However, as with Shawn’s Law, I must object to the use of an American narrator on a book set in Australia with very Australian characters. It pulled me out of the setting of the story.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
