Great older published book
Only In My Arms - Jo Goodman

This is an older published gem in my opinion. The couple were such a delight with their back and forth, snark, humor, and sexiness. The heroine was strong and had such an amazing character build with having the emotional struggle of leaving the nunnery and how that affected her relationship with her mother and the hero was the strong, dry humor, snarky, and sexy man I read these stories looking for. These two together are definitely worth the price of admission. 

The story starts off a bit slower but does an amazing job introducing you to the hero and heroine, getting you to really know them. They then come together and spend the rest of the book together with the middle specifically focusing on them and giving the reader an incredible romance relationship to read. The middle starts to drag a smidgen and the ending dealing with the mystery/conspiracy, why Ryder is on the run, gets a bit rushed as it becomes a bit too twisty turn-y for the limited time left. 

This was a great finish to the series and the author did a great job wrapping everyone's story up and giving us a fond look and goodbye to this family. You could read this without reading the others in the series, you'd miss some family relationship connections but worth it I say to read about this couple. Ryder and Mary are the couple you read romances looking for.

"Because you have always been part of me," he said. "From the beginning. Not from the moment we met, but from the moment we were. There has been a place for you in my heart, under my skin." 

Declarations of love from hero/heroine were, swooooon.

"Now don't flirt with me anymore," he said. "I can make you hurt a lot worse than you can make me. " Ryder only hoped she would believe him.

 

I am loving this book. The hero and heroine together are hitting all my snark dry humor female agency sweet spots.

"You're not like anyone else here," she told him. 
Ryder was not particularly flattered by her observation. Not only did it have the easy comfort of a prepared speech , but there were men at Fort Union he admired. Not being like anyone else wasn't always a compliment.

Safe in His Arms (Safe, #1) by Renae Kaye 4 Star Review
Safe in His Arms - Renae Kaye

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.

 

Review

 

Despite feeling like a trite porn (public showers, bear and twink) set up in the blurb, this is actually a sweet, sexy romance that thoughtful looks at recovering from abuse and finding safety and love in a romantic relationship. 

Casey is a wonderful multifaceted character and so is Lon. I don't want to give to much away but both have lots of issues to work through and they do so with out drama (but for one moment) and seek therapy which is grand to see in a book. 

The setting in the caravan park is unique as is Lon's job as a miner. 

Very good read.
