Rory's need to care and protect Daralyn has the Dom in him roaring to life in full force. But, learning to be the Dominant that Daralyn needs is like tring to navigate a field filled with tripwires, IEDs and landmines. Her upbringing was filled with abuse and neglect. She had no freewill or choices. Rory is determined to teach her how to live her best life even if it means letting her go. Daralyn recognizes the love she has for Rory but putting those feelings into words and feeling worthy enough to say them is another matter entirely.
Rory figured quite prominently in one of these perfect tales and less so in the other, but he began as one of those characters you loved to hate. He was a jerk, and almost entirely unlikeable. Until he wasn't. But until "In HIs Arms", I didn't appreciate his struggle to just be the best Rory he could be. To accept, and to grow for himself, not because of life's changes. But his new normal would always be just that much more difficult than the difficulties life handed to most. Daralyn was a relatively minor secondary character who added an element of drama to the already complex family but while her issues were hinted at, they were never key.
But leave it to Ms. Hill to take these two characters from the earlier books and weave yet another heart-breaking and at the same time, heart-affirming reading experience. Emotionally, this was a bit from Rough Canvas and a bit from Mirror of My Soul while still being its own tale. It is rich, and it is profound and can be forgiven for being a bit narrative-heavy at the start, because in the way of a Michener book, you need to take that narrative and fold it into the experience. It obviates any gaps and leaves you free to endure the experiences with these remarkable characters, and with them you are.
This is not an on-the-sidelines book. Just like its predecessors, this one reaches your soul.
In His Arms pushes all the limits of every emotion you could imagine.
Rory and Daralyn are 2 characters you won't easily forget.
They both have major obstacles to rise above in their lives
One of the things I liked about the book was the way the author explained the many challenges a disabled person faces every day whether physically or emotionally.
Rory and Daralyn both face them but the way they handle them makes the book the best.
There are plenty of old favorite characters from prior stories that you get an update on, which is one thing I love with this author's books.
Family and friends are all there to lend a hand to the two lovers and to offer all the support they could need. The book brings forth a wonderful story line, you won't be sorry you bought In His Arms. My hat is off to Joey Hill, well done.
This book just didn't take me away as her other have.
My biggest nitpick was Rory playing a Dom with no training. In the past stories, each Dom has gone through training, both physically and mentally. Whereas, Rory just had to chat with Marcus as a mentor.
I truly can't see Marcus mentoring any new Dom without extensive training, classes, many discussions, and some hands on experience. Not just, use your gut reaction.
I also expected Thomas to chat with Daralynn; answer questions about sub being a sub, discuss feelings.
Going to one party, even with Marguerite, wasn't enough. The scene with the two of them (Daralynn & Marguerite) was just odd. Not even sure where she was going with that.
The acceptance speech Rory gave was phenomenally written. It was definitely at Ms. Hill's standard!!!
The research she did to show what it is really like for someone confined to a wheelchair told me more than I ever knew of the issues that life has. You can feel the yearning when Rory wishes he just didn't have to deal with it any more. Both Rory and Daralyn have to confront their own devils in order to heal and then help each other.

Having other favourites from the Nature of a Desire series is a huge bonus. I loved spending time with Marcus, Thomas, Julie and Des and, be still my beating heart, Tyler and Marguerite. This all adds to the weave of this complex, deeply charged story which takes you through so many emotional states and reactions. My heart was in my mouth at times and, as always with Joey's books, I felt the emotions of the characters in my own heart and fell completely in love with them.
Joey always brings you the beauty of the human heart and I love her for it. She writes hope. 💖💖💖💖💖
Rory and Daralyn show vulnerability and strength in equal measures as their relationship grows.
I enjoyed encountering some of the characters from previous books, especially Thomas and Marcus. A very satisfying read.
